RingSurf (webring host) abandoned?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I am the current ringmaster of one of the earliest webrings -- it moved
from WebRing to RingSurf when Yahoo took over WebRing (now spun off).

Ring Surf still works, but I'm getting deluged with bot-spam site
submissions.  Also the 'closed to new members' function isn't working.
RingSurf and Web Design Toronto hasn't responded to any of my messages,
ever, over the last couple of months or so.

Anyone know if RingSurf is near-death (just freewheeling until someone
plugs the plug on its software/server)?

Know of other good, free webring hosts?

Or maybe there's someone out there who can takeover running RingSurf
(and keep it free -- there's some advertising on its sites, however)?

If you're ready to graduate to self hosting, I distribute a webring script  
that allows you to host individual webrings from your own website and  
database.  You can find it here:

If you're planning on hosting multiple rings (eg. a ring "system"), you  
can try Ringlink:

The technical axiom that nothing is impossible sinisterly implies the  
pitfall corollary that nothing is ridiculous.
