Introduction To The Mavica WebRing

You have spent hours shooting GREAT pictures with your Sony Mavica® and FTPed them to your web space and created a GREAT page for the web.

You've sent EMail to everyone you know asking them to check it out. Now, you wish there was some way to increase traffic to your page, let more people know you're there.

This caring Mavica WebRing is exactly what you are looking for!

What is a "Web Ring?"

On the World Wide Web, a "ring" is a group of pages on the same topic that reference one another. For instance, you might find a great page on fishing and at the bottom of that page there will be a link to another fishing page, and there another link, and so on. The Mavica WebRing does just that for Sony Mavica® sites on the web.

Does it cost anything?

No. There is no charge of any kind, aside from what your web space provider charges for your web space and maintenance already. This is a mutually beneficial relationship, not a money making scheme.

Who is in charge of this web page and web ring?

The Ring Master is WebRing. Our ring logo designer is Bob Hahn.

Who can get on the Mavica WebRing?

The Mavica WebRing is for any and all Sony Mavica®-related sites, usually showing Mavica pictures. You also must be willing and able to add a Mavica WebRing navigation cluster to your web page as described below. Click here to see a list of all the pages already on the ring.

How do I join the Mavica Ring?


Go to the Mavica WebRing Join Page. If you already have a WebRing ID (such as from another WebRing you have joined previously) you'll have to log in. If you don't have a WebRing ID, you'll have to create one and then add your website. The WebRing ID is created so that later you can go back and edit your webpage entry if you should need to. (like if your webpage moves or you change your contact e-mail address)


Now you have the opportunity to select (click with RIGHT mouse button) one of the "Mavica WebRing .gif's" below, and save the image to your disk, OR create a link to one of these images. This will allow you to identify your site as a member of this ring with the ring logo.

You will receive an EMail containing a navigation panel code fragment (to produce the panel like that shown at the bottom of this page) to add into your Web page. Follow the instructions in that message.

Here are two smaller text-only Mavica WebRing boxes which are alternatives to the graphical panel. These boxes have a different look and they have one advantage -- there are no gifs associated with the first one. If you have trouble with the HTML code emailed to you, here are two options you could use. NOTICE: to use this HTML code, PLEASE modify the "id=32" in these links to the ID assigned by the webring which will be sent to you by EMail. Also, please change the OWNER information and the EMAIL link behind the owner name.

Once you have your Mavica WebRing logo and links working, notify the Ring Master that you are ready for your site to be checked. Please note, sites are allowed to remain on the queue for up to 10 days, to finalize the update to your page with the Mavica WebRing fragment. If you are having problems getting your site on the ring, check out the Help area just below.

NOTE: This is a very active ring and your assistance in completing this work on your site is important. PLEASE complete this web site addition within one week, or your site may be deleted from the queue.

For our viewers, you may want to check your site with the Site Inspector:


Help Needed!

Mavica WebRing History

In the Fall of 1997, Scott Bell, Steve Fritz, Charles Kayes and Tiago had been sharing their experiences with the Mavica and decided that a WebRing should be formed. These first five members were posted to the ring in the midnight hours of October 20-21, 1997, with five more members added by the end of October. Scott Bell was the first Ring Master of this ring.

Additional sites were added (two November, two December), eight on January 13, seven on February 5. However, Scott was in his last year of Law School and the work load was heavy. One additional site was added in early March. In early April, Howard Albertson communicated to Scott that he would be willing to assist with the Ring Master work. Scott approved this transition and on April 11 this first-ever Mavica WebRing Home Page was born bringing the site count to 30 (two had become defunct.) This web page now allowed site owners to establish themselves in a queue for consideration for the ring and automated the process of distributing the HTML fragment for each site, ready to paste into the site web page.

The then-current ring member sites were notified about the new home page and the change in management. This site was formally announced to web Mavicans on April 13 on the Mavica Information Exchange. Within a day, seven new sites were added. Within a week, another seven were included, bringing the total on April 20 to 44 with another one working on site modifications.

On July 15, 1998, the 100th site was added to the Mavica WebRing. Our ring logo designer, Bob Hahn, made a commerative logo for the occasion. On December 25, the Mavica WebRing had our 200th site join the ring and Bob did another logo! May 26, 1999 saw the 300th site join the Mavica WebRing -- www.HappyBirthday.com -- where a viewer may send an eCard with their own Mavica picture featured in the card! Bob did another GREAT logo!
