Hello, I though it might be a good idea to make a list of all the known active webrings that people might want to join. If you know a webring/are part of a webring, post about it below!

(Please provide a description of the webring, its size, what kind of sites its for etc)

Hey I found a few more, so I figured I'd add them here in case there's still interest:

Bucket Webring - "For cool people." Currently at 48 members
The Funky Webring - Personal webpages that like funky visuals and colors. Currently has 36 members.
Neocreatives Webring - For visual artists (who aren't all necessarily on Neocities). Several dozen members in the list right now.
The Transring - "For any webmaster here on the web that identifies as transgender, nonbinary, basically anything that isn't cisgender." Has several dozen members currently.

Edit: found more! Also added more info for each of them.

Unnamed Webring - "This webring is an attempt to inspire artists & developers to build their websites and share traffic amongst each other." I can't find a name for it, but it is identified by the symbol at the bottom of the page. Currently 200 members
Lainchan Webring - Websites that have linked together using Lainchan, an image board revolving around the anime Serial Experiments Lain. Not all are anime focused, however. A few are on Tor and listed separately, and the webmaster keeps track of sites that have gone down. Looks like there are currently about 100 members.

Oh! Also, Sadness has an amazing webrings page: https://sadgrl.online/cyberspace/webrings.html

Honestly, it was what enabled me to start my webring adventures. Can't believe I forgot to mention it. She recently updated it too! :smile:

All the old webring systems died years ago. I even wrote a sort of history about the things at https://brisray.com/web/webrings.htm

Then I got an notice from someone that webrings were having a bit of a revival and I should look into them. I did, and added all the rings I could find and that's one of the reasons I'm here.

There's some in my list that Sadgrl doesn't but I've sent them the links to those so between us we should have all the current ones - but I suspect there's some hiding away somewhere neither of us have.

I've been poking around again and found something I thought was pretty neat.

Ringlink was a Perl program written by Gunnar Hjalmarsson in 2001. Ringlink powered all sorts of webrings including World of Webrings and Webring. The code for Ringlink is still available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/ringlink/

Most of the larger webrings closed down around 2016, but Anvilfire, a site dedicated to metal working of all sorts, and is using the original program to make their own webrings. Even the design of them is reminiscent of how the rings used to look. https://rings.anvilfire.net/index.htm

This is a great find! Im actually planning a webring dedicated to sites that use classic frameset for their layout and have been thinking of what ring code to use. I had a snoop around the source of version 3.4; while I don't know Perl I could get a general idea of how it works and it seems really comprehensive.

Im not sure if I'll be able to get this working with my server setup (particularly I imagine I'd have to convert it to HTTPS and proxy it through nginx) but if its not too much hassle I'll give it a shot!

Hard to measure the activity as it's only started today, but I actually just started the Webring of Suok, a webring for fans of the Pathologic series! I have literally no idea if this will take off because it's so niche but I figured I'd mention it. I barely actually update this fansite anymore because I'm not as active in the fandom anymore, but I do regularly check that email, so that's gotta be something! :omg:k:

My webring history, links, and technology page was getting out of hand so I've split it down starting at https://brisray.com/web/webring-history.htm Any links I've already given will still work, there are redirects on the server to take care of those.

I've come across some more interesting things. There was something called Orca Ringlink. This was written in PHP with a MySQL database. I think Brian Huisman got fed up of trying to maintain it because several penetration testers managed to get into the databases. I think that could be cured fairly easily now by testing the user input and hashing the passwords in the database.

Does anyone remember The Rail? It was one of the oldest ring managers along with Bomis in 1996. It was written in C and lasted for a little over 20 years. I need to add the story of that to the pages. It was an interesting concept.

I added TYOMA's Pathologic webring to the list of webrings. Those are interesting. There's even a webring for green sites. I don't mean ecologically sound sites, but sites that contain the color green. If only mine were not blue!

My webring list continues to grow. I was a bit disappointed to have to create a list of new rings that seem to have died already but these things happen and I have the URLs in case they should start up again.

I'm nearly at the point where to help people use the list I need to categorize them like Sadgirl does on hers - https://sadgrl.online/cyberspace/webrings

https://brisray.com/web/webring-list.htm

Someone has set themselves quite a task. They've resurrected TourBus which has got to be 20 years old and meant for wikis and Digital Gardens. Unlike traditional rings this was modelled like the old The Rail except using Trains and Stations they use Buses and Stops. Where some sites belong to two or more Buses when you go to their site, or Stop, you can switch Buses and visit a different set of sites on the route.

Meatball must want this to work because doing things this way is more difficult to administer than other types of ring and it involves a bit more work for the site owner to set up.
