Hello lainons, hows it going. Been a little while since I posted in the thread. I wrote an article on my site about archiving the webring threads, let me know what you all think of it (heres the link: https://yukinu.com/blog/lainring-archives.html
Also, updated my site with some more banners, probably missing a lot, and may have some duplicates, but adding what I can when I have some time. Great sites to all of you anons! Theres been some really good stuff to see on these sites, really a breath of fresh air from modern sites.>>46288
pretty much for nostalgia, aesthetic, and just for fun. also it is a nice way to find new sites. its pretty hard to find new sites these days off search engines alone>>46290
really more of a link directory, yes. But ring in the sense that you can usually go from one website back to the same website in a circuit (even if its just between 2 sites).>>46293>>46295>>46296>>46297>>46298>>46380
If it were up to me, I would organize this type of ring like this: each site takes 3 random sites from the existing ring. they then create 3 <portals> to each of the sites. When a new site wants to join the ring, it then also 3 random sites and checks their <portal>s. the new site then keep picking 3 random sites to create portals for until it had 3 sites that are not found in the 9 <portals> that they checked so that the new site contains a more unique collection of portals. As new sites keep getting added, <portal>s will start to be created for older sites and create full circuits such that you can traverse say 4 or 5 sites and then get back to the original site you visited. Additionally, it would be totally decentralized and even if half of the links become dead links in the ring, you could still probably traverse through most of the ring due to redundancy (as each site has 3 portals on it). Sadly, <portal> has never been fully implemented! (technically it was implemented in chrome but is stuck behind a feature flag for about 2 years, so basically no chance of it at this point, very sad as with this feature we could create really cool web rings with seemless page traversal).>>46324>I have a strict policy of writing when I feel like I have something to say, which is why I write every few months.
same here pretty much, I usually wait until i come up with an idea for a short project before writing anything on my site. generally i think this is a good thing, it keeps the content more interesting when something does get written>>46438
Nice work anon! very intersting to see a graph of the ring, pretty much as expected, a lot of sites are linked to each other since all the banners are often added when a new site is added. also very aesthetic terminal colors and font>>46952>game starts up>"choose your character name!">3 hours pass, still havent come up with a name
I know this feel anon, picking domain names is tough>>46956>saw site on wiby
glad to see people are using wiby, its a great search engine to just browse the net with>>47030>Half the time I am making the site I just think that "others" would like stuff like text being centered on the screen. Truth is, I've always prefered text aligning at the right side of the screen (like arabic), even though I am a westerner.
great thing about the web is that pages are exchanged in source, so that users can modify their user style sheets to restyle the sites they visit. also some people may browse your site using browsers that wont interpret the styles anyways (such as text only browsers), or may browse with assistive technologies. so you should focus on the style that you like the best, especially if its a personal site
