the Chicago Downtown and Northside
Ring, the first and (so far) only Webring focused on life on the North Side of Chicago (believe it or
not). If you need to get in touch with me about something ring related, eg. you'd like to join the ring and want
to request an appointment to see me to discuss that, you may use the form
below. If that form not be in working order, you can also reach me using
my homelist. You will need to leave a picture of
yourself in the photo gallery
for this webring so that I can recognize you, should you wish to set up a meeting.
If you'd to get to one of the webrings this site belongs to, click
here. Here is the full description of what this webring is for.
For those living in the Loop, or north of it near the Red,
Brown and Purple lines on the El. Your page should be about something that
people are invited to visit or participate in, just for the sake of their
own enjoyment. Politics, causes or volunteering? No. Hate groups?
Definitely no. Theatres, social groups, stamp collecting clubs, your
corner coffeehouse or bar, fiction or poetry readings, bungee jumping
crossdresser's associations ... whatever you're in a mood for, as long as
it's not illegal and people are there to have fun I'll almost certainly
say "yes". This ring is here to help people in our area meet each other.
I'm trying to run this on the honor system, so please be considerate and
honor the purposes of the ring when submitting sites to it.
Let's understand that when I say "hate groups", that's not a codeword
for "those who are politically incorrect". The fact that somebody may have
an anti-immigration page on his website or have written some scathing
anti-feminist satire is of no concern to me. Neither is the fact that
she's a charter member of PETA. If, on the other hand,
somebody's calling for physical harm to be done to somebody because he
doesn't care for the person's ethnicity, religion, gender etc., that I
do care about and his site will not be welcome on this ring. People are
here to have fun. Hatred and ranting aren't fun.
Aside from that ... as long as you honor the purposes
of this ring (we're here to play and make friends) you're going to
find that I run a pretty mellow show. Are you using HTML or SSNB code? Did you use it as
I've laid it out or customized it to your own liking? These things are
really not important. All that really matters to me is "can people
easily find their way to the ring from your page and navigate it". I want
to see a link for "next site", one for "previous site" and one for "ring
hub" or "list" (or both, if you wish). Your ring code must be on the page
listed on the ring; I don't have time to go hunting for it.
I hope you have fun on this webring, and please do consider signing up
for my homelist, where I'll be sure to mention any new members on this ring, as well as relentlessly
promote my own sites and discuss them ad nauseum, alas. Thanks for dropping by. (You can use the button
below to subscribe, but if you do have a Yahoo membership, logging in and
registering on their site is probably a better option). If you
don't see our webring's navbar below, click here to
get to the hub page for the Chicago Downtown and Northside ring, or
here to get to one of the webrings we belong to.
If you need to get in touch with me, use the mailform below and an associate will forward
any messages (relevant to the business of this webring) to me. This being a low traffic
webring, I usually just pick up my messages on the first Tuesday of the month; that's
when you should expect to see webring applications acted on.
The graphic below is fed off the provider of this mailform. If you don't see a Bravenet
graphic, their server is down and you should not attempt to use this form, as your work
will go to waste if you do. Please DO use this form if you have applied to my ring.
In theory, the webring system should send me a notification, however other ringmasters
have reported problems with that system in the past.
