Welcome to the Australian Aviation Web Ring Home Page.

The Internet has many Australian Aviation related sites and some good collections of links to these sites. The Australian Aviation Web Ring is an effort to link all these pages in a "chain" so that the surfer can jump from site to site following a thematic link.

There are no particular requirements to join the Australian Aviation Web Ring. If you have a site, a page or even a single project that you wish to promote,  you can join the ring. Large Companies and individuals are welcome. If you have an Australian or New Zealand Aviation  related home page, you can join.

If you don't have an Australian or New Zealand affiliation, or association of some kind, sorry, you aren't eligible to join the  Australian Aviation Web Ring. There are many other rings available that should suit your needs.

After you have filled the form you will get the HTML code fragment to insert in your page the ring links. Remember that you have to download and put on your site the ring banner image. There are two different banner images you can use, one with a transparent background ( ausavring.gif ) and one with a plain white background ( ausavring.jpg ). A special thank you to Richard Faint from Australian Ultralight Aviation for kindly creating and donating the Australian Aviation Webring logo's.

You can fetch then save the file ausavring.jpg or ausavring.gif from here, or simply right click on it (above) to download and save the image. After you joined the ring you can always change your registration information. If you have problems with the Australian Aviation Web Ring you can contact the Ringmaster.

Visit a random site in the ring or look at the complete list.

After joining the Ring, you must add the short HTML code to your home page before your links can be activated. The HTML code fragment contains information for correct operation of the webring and to ensure that every webring member is treated equally, fairly and that the integrity of their website is not compromised in look and appearance. Modification of this code to alter its functionality is not acceptable. Until then, you remain in the queue.

Special note for members of the original Australian AviationWebring:

You will need to join the ring again for membership of the new Australian Aviation Webring. You will need to replace your existing html code with the new code that is automatically sent to you when you reapply. Unfortunately the only other method for migrating members from the old webring to the new required a considerable amount of effort on my part ( we had over 70 ring members ), access to information that is difficult to obtain due to the way Yahoo now operate the old webring and you would still need to change the html code on your website. Due to my increasing loss of hair and several comments doubting my sanity :-) I have decided that this is the best approach.

What is the most asked question about joining the Ring?
Q: What's in it for you?
A: More hits, more traffic, greater awareness of your site etc.
Q: What's in it for me?
A: More hits, more traffic, greater awareness of my site etc. And I get to know about your site and other related sites. I am very interested in Australian Aviation. I hold a PPL and have been flying since 1994. I fly in my spare money :-) Time doesn't seem to be the restricting issue.
Q: What does it cost?
A: NOTHING all you have to do is follow the instructions and add the HTML code to your site. I spend the time and effort to maintain the web ring.
Q: What happens if I don't like the way the ring operates and/or who is in it?
A: Talk to me about it, I'm pretty reasonable. If that doesn't work, gang up on me or start your own ring. The whole idea of the webring is that everyone potentially gets the benefit of a hit on someone else's site, they then follow the thread around the webring looking at sites with a similar or common theme.
Q: Why have you changed the webring hosting system.
A: For various reasons. Mainly due to the difficulty in management and the inability to customise the appearance of the webring after the old system was taken over by Yahoo. See my ringlink page for further details.
Q: Where do I find the HTML code that must be added?

A: Read the paragraph below:

The html code is emailed to you when you apply for membership. It is also available if you have a look at the side of your change your registration information entry page, press the 'Get Code' button and the HTML fragment (customised for your site) appears at the bottom of the next page.

The following conditions apply:

Your site must have a clear Australian or New Zealand Aviation  theme.
Your site description must give a short rundown on your page contents. It is used as an information pointer to your site, and is not an advertisement in itself. The Webmaster may shorten it at his discretion. It shouldn't display more than two lines on an 800 by 600 screen.
Your webring URL pointer to a site must be on  the same page with the webring html code.
The Ringmaster reserves the right to decide who will be included in the Australian Aviation Web Ring.
The HTML code fragment contains information for correct operation of the webring and to ensure that every webring member is treated equally, fairly and that the integrity of their website is not compromised in look and appearance. Modification of this code to alter its functionality is not acceptable.  Cosmetic changes are quite OK.

Alternatively if the policy for your website precludes you from joining our webring, or you just can't cope with our incredibly strict rules <grin> you may be interested in providing a link to our list page

You may use one of the webring logo's ( see above ) if you wish to do this.
