Function of a Webring's Home Page
There are several different schools of thought on the function of a webring's home page and where it belongs in the big picture.
Some ringmasters prefer to have the |Home| link
on the ring's navigation panel point to a webpage located on the ringmaster's
website that serves as a public introduction to the ring, with the |Join|
link on the ring navigation panel pointing to a separate page containing the
rules and guide lines for joining the ring. In this type of two page setup
the Home page is normally a member site in the ring of websites, while the
Join page is not.
Other ringmasters prefer to combine the ring
introduction and membership guidelines on the home page. In this type of one
page setup the Home page can be a member site in the ring or only linked to from the webring
navigation panel. Many ringmasters feel that home page should not be a member
site in the ring, but should be a site outside of the ring.
