Waiting for us
Rainbow Bridge

Many of us have created web pages devoted to pets that have gone ahead of us, now waiting at Rainbow Bridge so that we may cross the bridge together. This ring exists for those of us left behind so that we may link these pages together in tribute to the wonderful animals who will always remain in our hearts and minds.

I hope you decide to join us. Before submitting your site to the queue, please read the webring requirements below.

Get paid to save your computer monitor

The requirements for inclusion in the Waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge webring are as follows.

  1. The website must contain at least one page which is devoted to memorializing a deceased pet or a page which focuses on some aspect of losing a pet through death. Some examples are grieving for a deceased animal or coming to terms with euthanasia.

  2. Update June 15, 2000: The link (URL) that you provide when you join the ring must point to the page where you have placed the webring HTML fragment. For instance, if you place the webring on a "webrings" page, the URL that links you to the webring must point to this page rather than your index page.

  3. You must add the ring HTML fragment to your site before it can be added to the ring. You must also save the ring logo (rainbridge.jpg) and upload it to your server in the directory where you have placed the webring. Then email me to let me know that you have done so. The HTML fragment will be automatically emailed to you when you add your site to the ring queue. If you didn't receive this email, let me know! If you correctly add the HTML fragment, it will display like the example below.

Attention ring members:
Effective July 1, 2000, I must require that the URL that you provide to link your site to the ring must point to the page where you have placed the webring HTML fragment. I resisted this change as long as I could because I know that many of you place the ring HTML fragment on a "Webrings" page while pointing the ring link to your site's main page. This webring now links almost 200 sites! I cannot manually check them all. Too many people neglect to use the edit your site info link to update their information when they make changes to their website. Webring.org provides a tool called ring Checker to automatically verify the HTML fragment for each ring site. In order for Ring Checker to work properly, the URL that links your website to the ring must contain the HTML fragment. On July 1, 2000, I will begin checking all sites in the ring. If your link does not point to the page that contains the ring HTML fragment, I will change the link (URL) to reflect the correct location of the HTML fragment. If I am unable to locate the HTML fragment, I will delete your site from the webring. I trust that those of you who, either operate your own webrings or who are involved with other rings who have taken a similar step understand my need to make this rule change.

September 1, 1999 - Today is the 1st birthday of the ring. Thanks to all members for helping us grow to 141 sites in this first year. My we all pause an extra moment today to remember our friends waiting at the bridge.

Attention ring members and perspective ring members:
It's very gratifying for me to see ring membership continue to grow, although, as our ring expands, I am constantly mindful of the sadness that each new ring member feels for the loss of their beloved pet(s). Lately I've been frustrated because there have been so many instances of current ring members changing their URL's or email addresses without updating their site information. Membership in the Waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge webring now numbers over 100. WEBRING has developed robots to monitor whether sites in each ring or its corresponding queue contain the proper HTML fragment but these robots are not perfect! Sites still have to be manually checked if there is any question. I ask all ring members to please use the edit your site info link to update any changes to the information which you provided when you joined the ring.

As to perspective ring members, I'm more than happy to help you set up the HTML fragment on your page. I know it can be difficult sometimes to get the code working and (especially) displaying correctly on web pages hosted on AOL. Lately a few people have also had trouble with geocities hosted pages. Please, if you're having trouble, let me know. Maybe I can help. Don't just send me an email telling me the fragment is up. When you invite me to look at a page that clearly isn't correct, you're sending me a message, "This is good enough!" Many current ring members who had trouble initially sent me email stating, "I'm having trouble...can you take a look?" I'm more than happy to do that. However, remember your pages belong to you and how they look is a reflection of you!

If anyone surfing the ring finds a page with a bad URL (some messages who might receive are "404 Error" and "You don't have permission to access this page.") please let me know about it. Ring sites which do not display correctly will be moved to the ring queue and I will send email to the last address that you provided. Sites in the ring queue are automatically deleted after 14 days so don't forget to let me know when you have fixed the problem. Perspective ring members, don't forget to send me email when your site is ready to be moved from the queue to the ring.

I hope you all understand my need to address these concerns.
