This is part 6 of the webring thread, surprisingly ongoing.

Last thread: >>46277

How do I join?

* a link to your website
* a 240x60 banner of your website

Added you, I assume you're okay with the banner that immediately followed your post. If not, I can change it later.
Added you, I appreciate that the forum allows Tor, I've replied.



>Added you, I appreciate that the forum allows Tor, I've replied.
Thanks, saw that you left a reply. I'll try to update the name thing in the next update to the site.

Also, it's weird how surprisingly human browsing the webring feels compared to the regular net. I felt lots of joy reading various thoughts, blogs and art that was put in these sites. Really cozy.



Yeah it's really a nice feeling.

And this new thread reminds me that I've left the webring in my site a bit behind, so I have some catching up to do.



Added you, welcome



Hi, I was wondering if you have had the chance to test the ring script and if you had any thoughts or changes you wanted to make?





File: 1628923056891-0.gif (34.04 KB, 240x60, 4:1, mm4rk3t.gif) ImgOps iqdb

Here's the link to my site:
Perhaps it is "boring" i.e. generic, I'll try to think of something to make it more unique, but for the time being, this is fine, I kinda like it as it is.

Also, props to you OP, this is awesome, it made me feel interested about the internet again.



love the design



Thank you :D! I got inspiration from some of the webring sites whose style impressed me, and I've been working on it since. Glad you like it.



>You got the basics down but I would add at least a little bit of varying color there.
Two months later and using some blur & stroke, I've managed to get something readable. Still WIP, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.



I haven't seen the previous iteration but it looks fine now. It shows off your personality and I dig the fancy letters. And I know it's not supposed to be NSFW but "This website is intended to become a comprehensive resource for all things size difference" made me chuckle.

Also added you to my ring if you find it alright?



>it looks fine now. It shows off your personality and I dig the fancy letters.
Awesome! Glad to hear! These sorts of artistic pursuits are very intimidating when the bar has been raised so high.
>I haven't seen the previous iteration
It looked the same as the template ( I linked to in the about section - slightly touched up HTML defaults. I justified it as being wikipedia-esq, but that didn't change the face it only exacerbated the dryness.
>And I know it's not supposed to be NSFW but "This website is intended to become a comprehensive resource for all things size difference" made me chuckle.
Yeah, an unwritten reason for the website was to collate my notes on making SFW/wide-appeal works. Partly because I'm tired of everything being porn or children's lit, and partly because popularizing the topic will invite more creative works from non-fetish artists. Aside from the topic in general, it also pushes against the tiring staleness in fantasy where every race is roughly human-sized and fairies or other mythical creatures are relegated to being walking stereotypes based on tired myths.
>Also added you to my ring if you find it alright?
Completely! As I said in the last thread, I haven't posted the banner yet since I don't feel it's worthy of being so rudely advertised in its current form. Once I get around to writing up some of the more technical articles appropriate for lain, I'll ask for inclusion proper.



>It looked the same as the template (
Great job! Yeah that one is very dry and empty, but you've made good use of it. Now it looks like medieval text turned digital so it's good.
>it also pushes against the tiring staleness in fantasy where every race is roughly human-sized and fairies or other mythical creatures are relegated to being walking stereotypes based on tired myths.
Good luck with that. I have a distaste to everything being "human, but with longer ears or green skin color" too. So I hope you'll manage to think of something fun there.
>Completely! As I said in the last thread, I haven't posted the banner yet since I don't feel it's worthy of being so rudely advertised in its current form.
You can just post it. The thing about websites is that they essentially never are truly finished so you can just dump it here, the moment where it will be perfect will never come. Even right now lot of sites in the ring have broken links, and my has a whole section that works once in a blue moon. Your website shows off your personality and it has it's own distinct character. You can post it without a shame. But that's in the end up to you to decide.

So here's my website:
Banner is picrelated. I think I've added everyone (except dead sites) here , so please add me.



I've been on neocities for a while now but I was reluctant in joining this webring becasue I'm definitely not into tech as most lainons are. My site is a diary thing.
I'll be adding everyone within an hour or so!



Huh, I actually visited your site before. I really like how you made the index. Peak aesthetic



Thanks! I'm actually surprised that a ton of people I already followed on neocities were a part of the webring.



lol your site reminds me of cirrus. Don't worry about it if you don't know who I am talking about.



Are you finnish? Idk why but your site's got strong finn vibes



I love the misc.html. It looks how my brain feels. A creative way of dumping various info



I hope whatever it is, it's not a bad thing.
I'm from the balkans actually



Hi, I reworked my website to be build again from zero, throw away lots trash and added bunch of stuff. Any ideas for improvement?



Sorry it took a while, real life was being rather torturous, but it's over now and I'm relatively free again. I hope I wasn't being presumptuous by going ahead and pushing everything - I have added functionality for choosing between 'clearnet' and 'onion'. Everything else is largely unchanged.

The script is still at:

>Also, props to you OP, this is awesome, it made me feel interested about the internet again.
I hope I don't get too much credit, it was started by (site currently down), I've just been managing the threads for a while.

>I think I've added everyone (except dead sites) here
You missed me, I'm guessing because you copied it from my site, kek.


I don't have much to suggest, just wanted to say I like the new redesign.



>You missed me, I'm guessing because you copied it from my site, kek.
Shit, sorry lol. Added.

>I love the misc.html. It looks how my brain feels. A creative way of dumping various info
Thanks. Funnily enough, actually thought of sorting it into several separate pages, but then the RSS feed would be harder to maintain so I bailed on the idea.



Sorry to hear that lain, hope things are going OK.
Looking good to me! The only thing I noticed was that you removed the check for random + banner which was there because loading the banner and redirecting are separate requests, so you'd end up going somewhere different than implied by the banner. There was a random banner image posted in the last thread which could be used for this purpose.

For ring members:
You should check out & if you want to add the ring functionality to your site. Great to see new members joining the ring!



what is that for a git webui? looks awesome



I must have mistakenly removed it early on while reading over the script. Added back in now. Though it may not matter much anyway, since someone using the script should know that wouldn't make sense.

Not suitable for big projects, but far more than sufficient for anything anyone here would be working on.



incredible. thank you for sharing. iv'e been looking for something simple like this.



I've seen some sites with a guestbook, what do you guys use?



I am simply storing the text on a database on my server. I think neocities has some guestbook build in, but 9 out of 10 times when I enter guestbooks on neocities I get hit with an error for some reason. Maybe it's just my browser blocker though.



wrote my own in django. is a simple "GuestbookSignature" model and is handled by a FormMixin extending view. most of the popular guestbooks i see require javascript and don't work unless i manually enable scripts.



Maybe that is worth a blogpost on how to achive this



What tech are you using for your website? If it's PHP or python with Django i can help with that. Otherwise I don't know what to say besides make a html form that saves it's info in a database. Lot of services that host PHP site allow you to enter PHPmyadmin which will show you the info needed to connect to the database.

This is a good guide on making a PHP registration. While not a questbook, the principle is the same. You save two textfields that the user has put in and you store them. If you want an exact blogpost on what to do, I'll write it when I'll wake up.



>What tech are you using for your website
Well, it's near all hardcoded, besides the bashblog ( and iframed gitweb
Is understandable and well written even tough MySQL was the course I hated the most (cs study)
I'll have a try, maybe the penny drops this time

I'll definetly have a look, tank you



Don't know if you figured it out, but so far the code is considered I've made two PHP pages for a basic guestbook and tested them out. It should work with minor adjustments on your part, or simply to look how things should be done. If something is unclear feel free to say it.



Thanks mate!!! All I was looking for

Finally updated the copy of the webring on my site after a while, hope I didn't left anyone behind (if so, let me know)



Webanons, what is the best GPL web server software?



what happened to chubacabra radio
why you do
why you no



Hey webring anons, how do you all create your websites? I've been using roman zolotarev's ssg for as long as I've had my website running, and it's been really helpful. The only problem I have with it is that it's sort of inflexible since it's pretty much just a straight markdown to html conversion, with some header files. I've made sites in plain html before, but it's such a soykafty language that the plainness of my site is worth it.
What does your workflow look like?



I don't think that there are really any good web servers released under the GPL.
If you're not too married to the GPL, however, OpenBSD's httpd is released under an ISC-style license, and it's one of the best web server softwares out there. I've also heard good things about nginx, which is under the BSD license.

cool site i like the design
only thing i kinda dislike is your navbar since it doesn't highlight the current page you are on and it also overflows on fullscreen, at least on my screen



>cool site i like the design
Thank you :D
>it doesn't highlight the current page you are
I forgot about that, will add
>it also overflows on fullscreen, at least on my screen
Yeah, it works fine on 1080p, I haven't really "tested" it on lower resolutions yet. I will do something about it, thank you for letting me know



Just in case anyone cares, I figured out how to manage multiple sites with neocities' cli tool. You set up one account and rename the config file ~/.config/neocities/config to, say, config-website1. Then set up the other account and mv ~/.config/neocities/config ~/.config/neocities/config-website2.
Then if you want to update website1, rename config-website1 to config, do your thing and rename it back to config-website1. Same thing for website2. It's a quick and dirty method that isn't really that quick. It's just dirty.

I use markdown too, but I use pandoc to convert it to html, adding a css stylesheet with pandoc's -c option. That's it for me, but my site is very simple, it's just one page,

I have a script that does that, and another script that uploads the stuff using neocities' cli tool. That's my personal workflow for now.

That said, I'm probably gonna switch to hugo (a ssg) because I want to be able to update the website from a smartphone and I can't get pandoc to work there, but hugo is available in termux's repos. Plus hugo is faster and has tags, categories and all that fancy stuff that may or may not be useful for me (or you) at all. So I'm probably a normal person weido here for using hugo, most sites in the webring look hand-made.

I also update the rss xml file manually like a caveman. And make it double because I have a Spanish version of the website. Yeah, I need to step up my workflow.

So, do you have any plans to... join the webring? by adding the other site banners to your own site?
by hand, in a text editor :)



Ah fuarrrk I have more to add to the webring now lawl.
Any update on the custom community developed webring software?



there should be a git repo so it's all synchronized not on poohub
also this is by far best modern webring. recommending lainchan version. maybe tachibana lab logo instead



i fail to see why this is different from ours other than having more people and no banners



Sorry if I am being presumptuous, since I'm not even a member of the webring yet. (I am making some changes before posting my site.)
I feel like the easiest way to implement proper webring functionality, like prev and next buttons, would be to maintain a canonical site order. Most likely in a git repo. Everyone could hardcode a link to the next site in the list and keep themselves updated with an rss feed or similar. No scripting needed.
My first idea was to sort the list alphabetically by convention to eliminate the need for a centralized list, but then everyone would need to monitor these threads regularly in case they need to update their link. It could work if everyone provided some form of contact info on their page, but I would be hesitant to require that.



>>49841 >>49856
See >>49725 for instructions.



whoever runs i really like your git web frontend, did you make it yourself? is it available for others to use?



See: >>49729

It is a great front-end, beyond my ability to create without a lot of prior research. I've changed nothing, aside from writing a post-receive script to do various things such as automatically updating the front-end, link CSS, etc.



>>49373 (OP)
What hosting providers/domain registrars does lain like?
Interested in anonymous/crypto-accepting solutions.





>So, do you have any plans to... join the webring? by adding the other site banners to your own site?
I've been procrastinating on it but I did it now.

Is anyone keeping a cloneable git of all the banners and the webring's html, or a zip file o something? Or should I copy-paste the code from somebody's webring page and download all the banners with wget and repeat every time I want to update it with new websites?

Here's my idea: a git repo that you can clone into a folder called lainchan-webring, that includes an html file with boilerplate text that explains what a webring is and whatever, and a folder called banners with all the gifs and images. So we can git clone that into our website's homedir and link to it from the homepage, and then git clone that repo again to update it each time.

I won't do it myself anytime soon but if anyone already has a git repo to donate to the cause you can run with this idea or a variant of it, to make it easier for ourselves to join and update the webring. Or maybe I'm missing something?



Is probably the closest to what you want. A git repo would be a good idea though.



i use as a domain registrar because they take crypto
i'm not sure about hosting providers since i currently just use neocities

i know seedbox services usually take crypto so you can just buy those if you want and use it as a webserver instead of a seedbox, i dont think the provider cares.



I use Vultr. They allow custom ISO uploads, and accept crypto (not xmr though, which was sort of disappointing). Cheap as hell too.
If you're interested, you can sign up with this link ( ). You'll get 100$ in free credit for your first month (which is way more than enough to cover it), and I get some credit if you stay on.



epik for domain for hosting.



>Git repo
>Centralized (rather cringe but easy fix)
>Unified design
>Can contriboot without banner
>Logo recognizing webring affiliation
>Direct service links (twtxt and rss) can be improved with things like fedi, git, etc.

In other words it is sophisticated and well organized.



>Wants it to be distributed
>Also wants a unified design
Pick one.
Agree with the git repo thing though, that would be cool. We should also totally have a button for the webring.

Ok, finally done.

My god that was a lot to catch up on. It was fun, but at the same time, that git repo idea is sounding really nice after cataloging 70+ sites.
Or maybe that php script lol
Shoutouts to >>49917 for having all those banners and the site list; I owe ya one



Not sure if I can run this on Neocities but I'll give it a shot.



Alright Lain, what am I missing from my site? These are all the webring banners I added last time.

If you don't see your website banner in there, let me know. I'll add it over the next few days.



I wouldn't want to maintain an HTML file, since I already have my own way of managing things. Maybe someone else can offer their Git to host a regularly-updated copy. It did however occur to me that 'webring.csv' would be very easy to generate the necessary HTML from with a very simple script. I did this just an example of what someone may do, use and adapt it however you want:


usage () {
echo "Usage: ./script webring.csv"

[ $# -ne 1 ] && usage && exit 1

length=$(wc -l "${file}" | cut -d \ -f 1)

rm "${output}"
while [ $count -le $length ]; do
line=$(head -n $count "${file}" | tail -n 1)
id=$(cut -d , -f 2 <<< "${line}")
url=$(cut -d , -f 3 <<< "${line}")
ext=$(cut -d , -f 4 <<< "${line}")

echo "<a href='${url}' target='_blank'><img src='/images/banners/${id}.${ext}' /></a>" >> "${output}"


If I recall Neocities doesn't allow for server side scripting, so you wouldn't be able to host your own copy of the code. You can still link to someone else's though, such as my own, and it'll work the same.



Hi, I'm >>49704 and don't see my banner. pls add



I've come back from the dead my website was broken and I was away for some time so I could't fix it but now it's back up so if anyone wants to add me banner is on the webring page. Also some awesome new website popped up I love this place.

Here's my version of the webring:
I usually lurk on this thread to keep it updated often. Tell me if I forgot to add someone.
By the way, I suggest linking instead of the neocities page if you can (I still update the neocities page though).



Hey Lains, I don't have a site, but I'd like to say it's been a cozy experience just by visiting yours.

I started adding some anime recommendations, but still have plenty more to add. I also included the webring

I recommend if you want to add my banner, use a direct link to it from my website, as I might update it in the future (html code for it is in the webring)



so let me get this straight its a 'webring' but theres no easy way to add it to sites? like a centralized link or list of the ones in the ring?
what would I add at this point to join the webring



I mean, we can make some page on neocities where every site is linked, but simply adding an image within <a> tags isn't really that hard. And honestly, it looks really cool to have these pages full of banners and it's much more fun to browse then simply seeing a dictionary of link. You could I guess make a random button that redirects to a central site which contains every link, which in turn randomly picks an other site and redirects to that. But really, is there a good reason to do that?



>But really, is there a good reason to do that?
keep it synced, keep dead or slow updated sites in the loop. the original webrings where its just add a link to a site before you and after you was an always working solution

that aside though does seem fun to throw on, and I need more 'links' to throw on anyway. whats the most up to date list of all the banners atm? just one from anyone elses site?

possible aliases for easy adition: neko or xn-neko, figure something out





neat, will throw the controls on when things are all updated.
I like how this could work with slightly differing local webring.csvs as well. good system.



Yeah it's really easy for people to deploy it themselves if they want to (and much simpler than Hotline Webring for instance).



I'm really enjoying this and am glad to be part of this community. The newer sites added to the ring are looking great. I'll be sure to add everyone into mine. I have a banner update for my site I'd like people to start using, but it isn't a big deal if you do or not. I'll try and upload it later tonight.



Is there an irc channel related to this? Would anyone be interested if I were to start one? Probably on Rizon, I'm not that technically advanced to host myself. It would probably just turn into an idling cult but let me hear your thoughts.



making chats to supplement communities is the fastest way to kill communities in my experience and i don't care for chatting much but i guess i'd probably join the idle cult



This. If you want a place to more casually chat, it'll need to have all the anti-insider trade features of an imageboard: public, no registration required, anonymous by default, and without special privileges. Even then (i.e. meguca), fast paced rooms will accumulate history faster than the thread, which accelerates the inevitable cultural schism. I feel you though; I'd be fun to chat without soykafting up the thread with noise.



I get you but >>50357 and >>50359 are right. If you wanna chat with some people in the ring then (mostly) everybody here has some form of contact.

I know this is bullshit, but recently I remade my site css because it kinda was boring and basic. I don't feel like the banner fits anymore though. So if people want to add me from now one, could they use this banner?

Also the link



>I know this is bullshit, but recently I remade my site css because it kinda was boring and basic.
I don't think it is, you're just redecorating your internet home.
On a side note, I noticed the buttons on the homepage of your site require Javascript when it's completely unnecessary; you can do a very similar thing with the buttons with CSS.



>I don't think it is, you're just redecorating your internet home.
That's true. Out of all places, personal websites are the most appropriate for unique, opinionated, sometimes crazy designs.



>I remade my site css because it kinda was boring and basic.
it looks great, I like it



I thought about that, but from what I know CSS can only show and hide one div. My page works that it hides every dif and only shows one you selected. Maybe I'm just a CSS noob tho. But i've quickly remade every part of the site to be javascript free so you should be able to do everything without turning it on.



oh and also thanks! Glad you like it. I forgot to reply to you because I was writting in a hurry.

Hello, I am the owner of Radio Chupacabra, this is my banner and the url is:

...and more...

I have many links in my link list, but I lost my first domain name "" for some reason, please update the link of the pages that you have added to me: D to my new URL ""

I try to be the simplest to create the page, at the moment no PHP, only JS and HTML, as an audio server I use icecast2 + debian 10, as a client a netbook from a decade ago with debian 10 and MPD

I plan to add more sections, like song history and broadcast from other hobby projects

I love the simple and personal style of the nineties pages, especially those that populated Geocities, at this point we are the underworld of the internet


Please add my banner and of you want, listen my radio , thanks



added back, and yes its a very comfy experience
even besides the neocities ones, just the unique handcrafted pages are something I didnt realize how much I missed until stumbling across this webring.

lmao accidentally uploaded an outdated image, here the actual webring



Guys, I need help. I have hosting on an external server, which I bought alongside the domain. The prices have really gone up. It used to be around 60 dollars, now it is around 100 dollars. It is a lot and I am not able to afford that. I am also unhappy with choosing the .pl domain name, Poland is my home country and I want to support it but the domain prices here are just rip-offs. However, I don't want to lose all of the traffic that I have accumulated. After a google search, my website appears around 1000 times. Is there any way to save this without getting destroyed by price increases?



maybe switching registrars, I remember cloudflare was going to do .com for free, or something. probably not .pl though

You'll have to elaborate more on your current setup. How are you spending $100 on a domain + server?

I usually use namecheap to register domains (for cheap, kek) and the average entry level VPS (which should be more than enough for a webring project) start at around $5, hell I used to rent one for $2.50 m/o at vultr. Thing is, doing this involves quite a bit of server admin know-how that casual users lack, if your current host is one of those where you can just make minor changes through a web gui then you're pretty much paying premium for said GUI.




Try to use a cheap VPS (entry level) and buy another domain, then make a redirect in your .pl domain for a few month to ensure that all references to your new domain are changed to the new domain by spreading and put a message before redirect if some user go to the old domain,
Try to buy a domain accord how much $$ want to spend to this, there are domain for a few dollars (the domain .xyz is one of the cheap)



So what’s the cheapest way for me to host a simple blog like this? It’s just going to be html and some python package to make it look pretty



Pretty much the cheapest VPS service you can find should do for simple projects like these




but beware, search for a good references VPS hosting, some VPS have some problem like bad connection or something

look this: the basic vps is good for mantain a old style webpage or imageboard (and more) there are many good vps with similar price/spec



I should have clarified, it's 100 dollars for a year, not for a month.



it seems the .pl tld is screwed, they dont even have it on namecheap and elsewhere it costs way too much. you'll probably lose some of the traffic but if possible you could setup a redirect to your new domain from the old .pl till it expires.
as others mentioned pretty much any garbage vps you can find will do webhosting just fine, I personally recommend scowering around on a bit. though they mainly have us and europe offers.




If you want to host some pre-generated static soykaf, there are cheaper options than VPS services. There are even some free ones, without ads, for example, I used to (ab)use InfinityFree few years ago for a particular project. Also, many of them support PHP, so there's room for more advanced things than static websites. For me, a VPS would be an overkill, as I don't intend to run any services, and I'm a poor fuarrrker as well. If this is also the case here, then I'd suggest looking for a simple, dirt cheap web hosting instead of a VPS. I see a lot of lainons hosting custom services, so no doubt there's VPS recommendations here, but different folks have different needs, yadda, yadda.



Lainanons, what do you think is better when making a webring page?
1. Downloading all banners and keeping them in my website images directory
2. Importing the banners from other sites by using <img src="url">



Download all banners, just to not make a lot of request to other servers.



most just get them locally, keeps things more static and simple.
no need to make requests to the other sites




Ok. Thank you anon.



Here they list a website that gives you a free .pl domain name. Just dropping it here, not recommending it.



better in the same page, not linking because this >>50757 , >>50766 and when some page of the webring is down, you dont see the ugly image error in your web

Available on Tor, i2p and yggdrasil. There are books, links and some blog posts.


I hope the website gets some traffic. I haven't advertised it anywhere else since its birth (months ago) and not sure if anyone has ever touched it.



>epik got leaked hard
>tons of user info
>namely DNS changes, payment info (no credit cards), and account credentials
>10 years of data
>Over 100GB of data
yeah I'm btfo-ing. I suggest you anons change your passwords and such; I'm gonna switch registrars
needless to say my site will be down during the move



i signed up with a fake address & name and i paid with crypto + i used a unique password

the leak doesn't touch me at all



Got any other recommendations? It is honestly impressive how fuarrrking horrible their security is. Never buying domains with fiat again.



the only reason to use epik in the first place was because you could pay with crypto & sign up with fake whois data

if your data got leaked in this hack then its on you



I do urls because people might change their banners, I made mine in 2 minutes in paint, I'll surely change it soon



Cute website, anon.
>not sure if anyone has ever touched it.
Shouldn't the server have logs of page requests? You could also try implementing a guestbook.

none of you guys were affected by the epik leak, right?
i hope you all signed up with fake WHOIS info and paid with crypto...



>none of you guys were affected by the epik leak, right?
Personally affected, no. I stick with Namecheap.

Building a nice public web front-end (with AGPL'd source code) to make all that data easily searchable to anyone, with a handy MD5-to-known-plaintext function for the passwords? Hell yes. I'm expecting it get it up by sunday night. Might end up being a Tor hidden service.

I've been going through the raw SQL at random. It's amazing how so many people registered domains under what look like standard "firstname plus lastname plus number at gmail/outlook" addresses.

cute little site anon, added to the onions part of my webring page.
if theres anyone that has an i2p or yggdrasil only site I'll add a section for that alone too but so far onions and clearnet seems to cover all sites
I use namecheap with both fake info and whois guard, while paying from burner paypal
