Since the GeoTropics Webring was started in June, 36 sites have joined us,
from all over the world. At present, I am considering visiting every
eligible site, but I am daunted by this prospect! It has been a great
encouragement to me to receive applications to join the Webring from sites
I have never visited or invited. This means that the community ideals of
Webring are working. If you joined us without a personal invitation, you are
Any time now, TheTropics/Shores neighbourhood will be full, and GeoCities
will be starting an area for new residents of
TheTropics. I can scarcely
wait! Who will be the first member of the new neighbourhood to join us?
RECEIVING THIS NEWSLETTER
As a member of the GeoTropics Ring, you will receive this newsletter about
the Ring. As I am as irritated by spamming as anybody else, I certainly do not
wish to cause annoyance to any of our members. If you do not wish to receive
this newsletter, mail me and tell me and you'll never hear from me again,
unless I have to contact you for some reason.
I do not expect to send out news and features more than once a month, though
it will probably be rarer than that.
Is there any interest in a more frequent mailing list?
The structure for a mailing list is in place. Posting to
will put your message into a queue for me to
"moderate", but until I can tell whether you want to receive such mail, it
may well be discarded.
Any site not adhering to the
content guidelines will not be invited
to join the GeoTropics Ring. This includes the usual restrictions on other
banner exchange systems.
This mailing list is
advertiser-supported, but it is not provided by
GeoCities. The same is true of
You are not a member of the ring until you add the HTML code to your site,
and if the ring is to survive, it will stay that way! However, if you decide
to make your site framed and you joined us early, please make sure that each
link contains the tag
because if it doesn't, people following the ring will be trapped in your
frames. This will also result in your site being moved out to the queue until
you fix it up, something I really don't like doing.
Please make sure that your code works under Netscape and Internet Explorer.
I prefer Netscape 3.01 but I also user IE 3.02 from time to time. I am amazed
that some sites look so different under the two broswers. If you can, please
check that your ring pages are accessible to both!
Some of the sites in the Ring have created advertising banners for the
Internet Link Exchange, GeoRewards or GeoGuide programs. If you would like
me to include these on a ring promotional page on my site, I will be
pleased to do so.
Please mail me
with your banner's URL.
