The Animal Lovers Ring now has over 600 members. The duties involved in maintaining and administering the ring have become too great for just one person.

I am looking for people who love animals, who have a good working knowledge of HTML and who have some free time they would like to devote to helping this ring run smoothly. You need not have run a ring before. I will teach you about how the ring works. I would prefer someone who is not currently running their own ring, especially a large one.

The duties involved will be (1.) checking current members sites to be sure they have not moved, deleted the ring code or somehow distorted the code so that it no longer functions properly. (2.)Visiting the sites of potential members who have submitted to the queue and adding them to the ring. For both of these duties, you will need to know HTML well enough to recognize errors in the code.

Below please find how the code should look for member #800 who has chosen the cats.gif image.

On the member page, it should appear like this:

This Animal Lovers Ring site is owned by Your Name.

| Next | | Skip Next | | Previous | | Next 5 | | Random |
Want to join the ring? Click here for info.


Things that need to be checked are:

1. Have they used their own e-mail address and name?
2. Does the ring code contain their own ID number (in this case, 800)
3. Is the ring image loading correctly and it is on their own server? Remember that they can choose any image they want, but it must look correct (height and width) and not be direct linked to the Animal Lovers Ring homepage.
4. Are all the links correct with no extra spaces or errors?

You will need to familiarize yourself with the standard webring code link format. All ring links (next, skip next, random, etc.) start the following way.

a href="http://www.webring.org/cgi-bin/webring?

followed by the name of the ring (the "ring ID")

ring=animal

next comes the id number of the individual member site separated by either an & or a ;

&id=800

and finally the command for the ring to follow (next, skip next, random, etc.) also separated by either an & or a ;

&next

When it all comes together, it should look like this:

a href="http://www.webring.org/cgi-bin/webring?ring=animal&id=800&next







If you feel you understand how the code works, and you are interested in becoming an Animal Lovers Ring Helper, please take the following quiz.
