Welcome to the Official MacMarines Webring

"We're Fighting Back For The Mac"

Who are the MacMarines

This webring was created in July of 1997. It's purpose is to provide a ring for those who are members of the MacMarines AND who have some Mac-specific content on their pages. First you might wonder who are the Macmarines? First and foremost the MacMarines are people who believe in the Macintosh. We believe that Apple Computer and the Macintosh are still the greatest personal computers around. These days you may here a lot of things in the media that portray Apple and the Mac in a very bad light. Many of these portrayals in the media are simply distortions, exagerations or falsehoods. We in the MacMarines are dedicated to promoting the truth about Apple and the Mac. This webring is one of the ways we'd like to spread the good news about our platform of choice, the Macintosh. If you would like to learn more about the MacMarines please visit The MacMarines Homepage

What is a Webring?

For those of you who don't know what a Webring is, it's a group of pages that have been formed into one giant ring. If start at one page and continue to follow the ring, you will eventually end up back where you started. It is very convenient for those who would like to check out several sites that have similiar content. You can follow the MacMarine Webring and find sites with a lot of good Mac content.

<!-- End HTML fragment--!></P>

6. Change the wording: ....is owned by.... to mailto:your_email_address and ...yourname... to your own name. (This must be done in the html code...)

7. Change the Underscores to your own site ID which you have received in step 3 above. (This must also be done in the HTML code of your page...)

8. Ensure that the two graphic images are displayed on your page and that there are no unwanted text on your page (The Beginning and End of fragments, etc.)

9. Upload the two graphic files (mm1.gif and mm2.gif) as well as the page with the above code on it to wherever your WEB Pages are stored.

  10. E-mail me and ask me to add you to the ring. Be sure to include your Site ID Number in the e-mail message. I will check your page to make sure that the the applicable HTML fragment on your page is okay.

11. After checking out your page, I will take your Site ID Number and use it to add you to the ring. You should then receive an E-mail message, telling you that you've been added.

12. That's it! You should now be able to navigate the entire ring until to make it back to your own page (although it may take a while). An easy way to make sure it is working is to go to the homepage of the person who added you (initially it will be just myself...) and see if the next button takes you to your own page.

13. And finally: If ANYTHING on this page is incorrect or unclear, please E-Mail me immediately!!

To Add Another Person to The Official MacMarines Webring (Members Only)

Once you are a member of the Ring, you will have the ability to add other pages to the ring. Here's what you do:

NOTE: Initially I will be the only Ring Member that will be able to add other sites to the ring, but I'm including this description for possible future changes...

Type in their Site ID below and click Add. Then just follow the instructions on the form provided by the Webring Main site. It should be very clear. But you really MUST visit the site first (You can do it from the Webring Main site) to ensure that they have an easily accessible ring table (with all the links and graphics) on one of their pages. Remember, somebody surfing through the ring don't want to wonder where the next link in the ring is.

I will also go through the ring to ensure that it is unbroken.

Their Site ID Number:

Important tips and hints:

If someone asks to be added to the ring, have them make the necessary changes to their page, including all of the changes to the HTML fragment above that
are necessary (e-mail address, graphics, site ID number, etc.) and check to see that they are correct before inserting them in the ring. This will guarantee
that the ring will correctly function immediately.
