Questions that are Frequently Asked

Why should I monitor my webring messages and email?

Keep your account information at WebRing up to date so that you will receive information about problems with your website. Expect emails for activation and/or suspension notices and general information important to all members of the Wiki Community Webring. If there is a problem with your website and the webring manager can contact you, then the problem can be fixed. If you are out of touch, you will be dropped from the ring when your website has a problem.

Should I use SSNB or HTML navigation code?

If you are a member of the Wiki Community Webring, you have a choice of using the SSNB navigation bar (that is JavaScript based) or you can use the plain HTML code.
