missed the point.... - 10/06/2006
I am thinking that you have missed the point!
"Everything" has revolved roung the ring "masters"!
Surely the point is, the sites that are members of your webrings! They are not members of the forums, and they just log on to to register for the ring! (They even sometimes use a separate logon, having forgotten the previous, to register subsequent webrings - fortunately!)

If they have got multiple webrings in the same U number they aren't aware of the number! They might have six rings, or more, under the U number!
It is the enthusastic user, who doesn't login but has "real content" in the pages, and commercial user - which I am thinking of! They will be surprised to "dumped" from the rings, at random, at the 15th!

WebRing is supposed to be a community, not just a listing service for sites that are looking for hits - that is why most ringmasters require ringmembers to have a working e-mail address and to sometimes respond to e-mails which convey important information (like the direct navbar route rule, the WebRing system belatedly incorporated this idea into its standard operating procedure).

If a ringmember is out of touch because he or she does not have a valid e-mail address, it is not the ringmaster's fault; in many cases a consistent ringmaster will have taken care of that potential problem in the course of the daily housekeeping chores that keep every good ring running smoothly.

The ringmasters who are now forced to delete rings and memberships are doing their best to respect individual members and to inform them about what is happening. As we all know, sometimes the mail system here loses messages - I have had messages that took 6 months to filter down to me (the strain on the system makes losses and delays much more likely too), so don't automatically blame the ringmasters if the speed of the meltdown makes the sharing of information patchier.
