Welcome to Spinning the Web, the ring for entertainment series created specifically for the web!

From dramas to comics to soap operas to hyperfiction to journals, people are searching for online entertainment that grips their emotions and kindles their imagination.

If you're a producer, writer or artist for a site that provides continuing entertainment for the web, joining the community of sites below will help promote your work, and will link you to a growing network of artists like yourself.

This service is brought to you free of charge by the Episodic Review, the information hub of the web-based entertainment series world!

Note for newbies: A web ring is a group of similar websites linked together by a small segment of navigation code, by which visitors can click from site to site within this group. The ring looks like this:

To qualify for membership in the ring:

1. The site must contain your own original writing or artwork.

2. The site must have a continuing, regular schedule--whether it's daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly, quarterly.  This ring is for ongoing entertainment, not static novels or art portfolios.

3. The site cannot contain hate-filled or obscene material.  Adult material is allowed, but must be clearly labeled in the site's description.

How to apply for membership in the ring:

1. Visit http://d.webring.com/hub?ring=episodics, the homepage of our webring. Click on the large "join this ring" button on the top right side of the page.

2. At this point, if you don't already have another site in the Webring system, you'll probably need to create a (free!) account. Once that's created, you'll have to add your site URL and a description (not too long).

3. Note regarding the URL: we request that whatever URL you enter, that's where you put your ring code (see step #4). In other words, you must display the web ring link on the URL you want listed in the webring. We have made the image and code much smaller so as to be subtle but noticeable. The reason for this request is that we want to make it easy for visitors to find their way through the ring.

If you absolutely can't put the code on your homepage for design reasons, you may put our link on a regular webring/links page, but this page must be prominently mentioned on your main page, and easily accessible by people surfing the ring.  

4.After appyling, you'll receive an email shortly giving you a link to the navbar code, complete with your Ring ID number. Copy and paste this code onto your html. Note: We highly recommend you use the HTML code instead of the RingNav code -- scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the text link that says "Members who wish to use the HTML version of this nav bar should go here." Saves loading time, and also you can customize the colors and fonts directly to match with your site. \

When the html is inserted in your page and your page is accepted to the ring, it will look as follows:

Important: You should add the code as soon as possible after your site is accepted to the ring.  If the code hasn't been added within seven days, the site will automatically be removed.

That's it! Thank you for joining.
