Welcome to the Ring of Origami Art! You might ask, "What is a webring?". Well,
a webring is a way of joining pages of similar content around the net by displaying a simple graphic.
It is another way of surfing and increasing hits to a person's site. As one continues to click on "next" for example,
the next site in the ring is displayed. Eventually, the surfer will eventually return to your site as all
sites are in a "ring". Anyway, I have created this ring because I believe webrings are creative ways
to increase hits to a site and thus increase a site's exposure.
The purpose of this particular webring is to unite
all web pages that have content about the art of origami or paper folding. It is simple to join, so just follow
the three simple steps in "New Site Members Joining the Ring".
If you came here from surfing the webring, you can continue to surf the webring by
viewing the working HTML fragment here.
If you feel that your site meets the requirements, then by all means, do proceed to join the ring!
STEP 1: Fill out the following form and click "Submit Site to Queue". If you make an error after you click on "Submit Site to Queue", then please e-mail me (the Ringmaster)
with your site ID number and the concern. I will make the appropriate change(s) for you
After filling out this form successfully, you will receive an e-mail verifying your registration (site ID #, URL, title, and password).
STEP 2: Copy the following HTML fragment onto your page. I suggest you directly copy the HTML fragment, then paste it on your page.
You can place the code on your main page, or perhaps your webrings page, but in any case, make sure that it is easily accessible by people surfing through the webring.
Please remember to insert your site ID number where it says _your_id_here_ and your name where it says _your_name_here_ and e-mail address where it says _your_e-mail_address_here_ at the appropriate areas.
Another option is to copy the HTML fragment from the e-mail that was just sent to you
notifying you of your queue addition (yes, the mail should be in your box by now if
everything has been done properly!). The HTML fragment that was sent to you already
has all the appropriate insertions except your name. Therefore you will only need to copy
and paste the HTML fragment from the e-mail and insert your name where it says

If you've inserted the code correctly on your page, then the following will appear. Please note
that the HTML code pasted here is NOT the working HTML fragment as not all of the
appropriate substitutions have been made. If you would like to view the true
working HTML fragment, please go here.
I (ringmaster) plan to create more graphics so that there will be a choice in what you would like
to have displayed on your page. However, I don't have the time now, so I will gradually create them as time permits. For now, please
use what I have displayed here, and come back later to check if there's a better graphic you'd like to have displayed on your page.
Thanks for your patience
STEP 3: E-mail the Ringmaster or a random site within the ring with your site ID number and URL. The ringmaster or the person you e-mailed will check out your site
to make sure that it meets all the requirements and does not contain inappropriate material. Please remember to have the code on your page BEFORE you e-mail the
ringmaster. If the code is not on the page, you will not be added to the ring.
If everything checks out ok, you will receive an e-mail informing you that you're a member of the ring.
Please write down your site ID and password for future use. Or, you can keep the e-mail that is sent to you with all the information that you need to know. This is important when someone
wanting to be added into the ring asks you to add him/her in. You will need your site ID number and password in order to add that person in the ring.
And... that's it! You're a member of the ring. You can confirm this by testing out the ring and navigating through it.
Eventually, you should be able to come back to your page. If you're not a member yet (ie. you haven't received the second e-mail confirming your membership) but you do have the
code on your page, every command will point you directly to this page.
NOTE: Only ring members can add sites to the ring. To learn more about becoming a member of this ring, please read how to join the ring.
If you are a ring member, then you might receive an e-mail from someone who wants to join the ring asking you to add their site to the ring. They will (hopefully) include their site
ID number and URL. It is your responsibility to check out their site in order to make sure that it meets all the requirements outlined above.
Please also make sure that their website has the correct HTML fragment, and that the webring is easily accessible from the main page in order to preserve the integrity of the ring.
If there are any problems, please e-mail the site manager or e-mail the ringmaster. If everything is ok, then you
can proceed to add their site to the ring. Also, remember that you need to have your own site ID number and password in order to add someone else to the ring. If you've forgotten
your password, e-mail the Ringmaster. If you don't remember your site ID number, you can always view the html code and find out your site ID from there.
RING MEMBERS: Please remember that if you move, then you must complete the following form. Input your site ID number and password and click on "Edit Site Information"
in order to change such things like your URL, site title, e-mail address, and password.
