Well, the page isn't too clear on some things, so hopefully this will help.

Note: Please forgive me if I don't respond to your e-mail right away. I was a college student, but now I'm employed full-time. Yikes! If it's been a week and I still haven't gotten back to you, send me another e-mail.

I'm 25%...50%...84.6% Italian; can I still join?
My page isn't about Italian-American culture.
I filled out the form and submitted my site. Now what?
I added the HTML. What do I do now?
I don't like the HTML. Can I make my own version for my page?
I can't add HTML to my page. What do I do?
I found a picture that would be great for the webring. Will you use it?
Why do I need a password?
What's my site ID for?
The "next" button on my page took me to a different place than it did last week.
I'm concerned about the content of one of the sites in the ring.
What's your e-mail address?
Why is your e-mail address on every single page here?
Who do you think you are anyway?


I'm 25%...50%...84.6% Italian; can I still join?

Yes. The only requirement is that "you have Italian heritage and are proud of it!" And I say "only" requirement because there are one or two people who don't live in the Americas, but are in the ring anyway. Why? Because their pages are so good I think it would be a loss to us all if they weren't allowed to join.


My page isn't about Italian-American culture.

It doesn't matter. The only requirement is...um, see above.


I filled out the form and submitted my site. Now what?

Provided that the URL you supplied is correct, you'll be added to the queue. You'll get an e-mail with the personalized HTML code to put on your page. Just copy/paste. The only change you need to make is put in your name where it says "your_name_here."


I added the HTML. What do I do now?

E-mail the ringmaster, and you'll be added to the ring if the HTML is correct.


I don't like the HTML. Can I make my own version for my page?

Sure, just please include (at least) the name of the ring, a link to the ring's homepage, and a "next" feature. (This is so people can navigate the ring.) Make a Javascript version, embed a MIDI, whatever! If you come up with something really nice, tell me about it.


I can't add HTML to my page. What do I do?

This problem has been cropping up lately on pages hosted on familytreemaker.com and other hosts that force you to use strange webpage editors. If you want to join the webring, and we just can't figure out how to get your editor to accept the code, I'll allow you to add a link to the ring instead.


I found a picture that would be great for the webring. Will you use it?

Definitely. Send them to me. Please?


Why do I need a password?

If your e-mail or URL changes, or if you want to change your site's password, you use the password to login to management.


What's my site ID for?

It tells the webring where to go for the next or previous site. You also need it to login to management.


The "next" button on my page took me to a different place than it did last week.

The sites in the ring are re-arranged randomly every five days. Hopefully that will help everyone get more traffic.


I'm concerned about the content of one of the sites in the ring.

I'd initially hoped this wouldn't be a problem, but since there are almost no restrictions on site content, it's inevitable. If you see something that you are really opposed to, please tell me about it. I like to think I'm a very flexible person and will try to work out a solution with you (such as rotating the site you don't like so it's not right after yours). I won't kick anyone out of the ring, though, unless something really bad pops up on someone's page. And I mean unfathomably bad. And there are no ring pages that fit that description :)

My advice to people is: Please roam the ring before you decide to join. You want to learn about your neighbors anyway, right?


What's your e-mail address?

Actually, it just changed. loro@cif.rochester.edu Hopefully it won't change again!


Why is your e-mail address on every single page here?

It's an Angelfire requirement.


Who do you think you are anyway?

Well...I made this page just for you.
