[ Join the Ring | Important Notes ]
[ List of FurRing Pages | Jump to a Random FurRing Site]
This is the main page for The FurRing. Created by Mark Freid after discovering the WebRing by Sage.
Web rings are a novel way to visit a multitude of pages on the same subject, just by visiting one page, and then moving onto the "next" page via a link.. They are laid out in a "ring"-like format, so that by travelling through all the pages, eventually you will arrive back at the first page you visited.
The FurRing, created in August, 1996 is made up of homepages relating to Anthropomorphic ("furry") art, fandom and lifestyle. For more general information on what "Furry" is all about, visit PeterCat's Furry FAQ Page.
Anything on this page that seems like me yelling, complaining, or ranting is strictly due to way too many people breaking the rules, then yelling at ME. I'm doing this as a service to the furry Internet community, and because I enjoy it. Not because I have to.

If you are already part of the FurRing, and need to edit the attributes of your page (i.e. the URL, your e-mail address, the site description, or your FurRing password), enter your site ID and password below:
NOTE! Many people have been attempting to join the ring without following all of the steps below. You cannot just add yourself to the ring, without having the appropriate code & images. PLEASE follow the directions CLOSELY. You must have the code & images on your page, BEFORE joining the ring (and preferably before applying).
Part the first:
If a page submitted to the queue does NOT have the required HTML/images on the page, it will remain in the queue until the changes are made. (I WILL NOT SEND OUT ANY WARNINGS) The system will AUTOMATICALLY remove sites from the queue after they sit there for THREE WEEKS. People removed from the queue have the option to re-apply.
Part the second:
There have been issues of copyright infringment occurring in the FurRing. Unfortunately, this is a sticky issue, and the policies are as follows: If I receive complaints about any sort of copyright infringment on a site on the ring, the site will be removed from the ring, and placed in the FurRing queue, pending investigation by the RingMaster, until the issue is resolved between both parties. The RingMaster does not want to get in the middle of said issues, so if it happens, the offended party should report it to the RingMaster so it can be removed from the queue. Then the offended party should make restitution him/herself with the offending party. When the matter is settled, the offended should email the ringmaster so that the page can be reinserted. I simply cannot allow the ring to be a home for such activities.
Here are the steps that need to be followed to join FurRing. Please follow them
closely to preserve the integrity of the ring!
I have made every effort to type out the instructions step-by-step so that it will be easy to set up correctly. If you have any questions, please e-mail me!.
