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.
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?
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:
