Three Suggestions for Angry Ring Managers - 09/29/2006
I don't know if anyone else has posted / suggested these thoughts, but here goes:

Ring managers should email their memberships and ask them not to quit any rings until around the first of the new year (the last possible moment), just in case our objections to the new system are heard and WebRing flips their decision. Ring managers should not abandon their rings until the last possible moment for the same reason.

Everyone who cares about protesting the changes to the WebRing system should go into http://dir.webring.com/h/benefits and choose the Free option now! This will send a clear message to WebRing that we aren't buying the pay to play idea. I have done this and they come back with a message acknowledging your choice and reminding you that you actually have too many memberships or rings to qualify for the Free option and you can still change your mind by Jan 15th.

And if WebRing ultimately ignores our objections:

Ring managers with lots of rings (one I heard from has 355!) should consider consolidating all of their ring members into one new, single ring. You have time to email all of your members and urge them to join your new one after they drop out of your old ones. I realize that multiple ring owners cover a lot of subject categories, but someone with 50 rings consolidated into one might actually rack up $ in the WebRing system.

Hi,

I'm not sure it's a good idea: if I'm above the limit at the beginning of 2007, they'll perhaps delete some of my memberships, and that's not good, I want to choose which rings I'll be leaving (that's why I have deleted 3 of them yesterday)
They have announced something, they have to assume the consequence - I won't bother again to adhere to rings I've just deleted.
Perhaps they thought about it, and they don't care about us... but that's not my problem anymore, if any problem is still pending, it's their's now.

Alain

Good idea. I just took the "Free" option too.
