ArtCode - ASCII Art Webring

What is ASCII Arts Web Ring?

Quite simply, ASCII art consists of pictures produced using text. The name "ASCII" designates the American Standard index which maps letters (and other "characters") to unique numbers. For a deeper understanding of ASCII art, you should probably just begin browsing the sites on the ASCII Arts Ring. You can enter the collection at a random point by clicking here.

ASCII Arts Ring consists of sites that feature ASCII art. They are linked together using a "navigator" that each member site adds to his/her pages.

Project History

In Y2K, when the old ASCII Arts Web Ring was absorbed into the company Yahoo!, a need was created for a new, non-commercial alternative. The ASCII Arts Ring is intended to provide the functionality of a Web ring without the parasitic commercialism.

Rules

Basically, there are just a few rules. First, your site must not infringe other people's intellectual property. Works shown must be original or shown by consent of the (credited) artist. Second, you must continue to display the "control panel" on your website in a manner that is readily accessible to people who are navigating from one member site to the next. This means using visible color schemes, reasonably sized text, etc.

Your site will be reviewed when you register to join the ASCII Arts Ring, and your site will not be added if it does not already contain the necessary HTML code (it is provided to you when you register). Significant alteration of your site's content and obscure placement of the "control panel" are against the rules. Of course you can use your best judgment when redesigning your pages, but bear in mind that the every member site must make it possible for people to find and use the navigation mechanism.

If you feel that a site that is part of the ASCII Arts Ring is not complying with these principles, please register your complaint, indicating the URL of the site. The maintainer of the site will be notified and given a week to make adjustments. If at any time you would like to unregister from the ASCII Arts Ring, you may do that here.

Technical issues and HOWTO

In order to be a member of the ASCII Arts Web Ring you must first have your own website featuring information relevant to the ASCII Arts movement. Once you have a site, you can proceed to register your URL. This means that a volunteer editor will review the site to make sure it is appropriate for the ASCII Arts Web Ring, and that you have correctly placed the HTML code for the "control panel" on your site. This code will be given to you when you register through the browser, and it will also be sent to the email address you give. The code snippet will contain an ID number that is specific to your site, so you must include the code exactly as it is given to you.
