I made a decison
To get the Level 2 membership and give this new system a try.
I figure what the heck, maybe it will work out and I will become a multi-millionaire from the affliate program!
I'll give a year and see how it goes.
I've made a decision also by adding a few items to my shopping list.
Can a WebRing Level 2 affiliate membership help me to achieve this goal?
Nope, I doubt it. Seriously, the new “affiliates” program is just a new name for what they once did as a bonus for new sites. However, on top of a new name for this method to earn money, its only cancelled out the old system and put in one where you earn less than before.
So its really nothing new, its just been renamed and more than halved the payouts people ordinarily received to be almost nothing, while, also charging people to do so this lovely service.
Has anyone successfully figured out how to run/install the ring link system on a hosted server? If so, anyone mind contacting me vie pm to answer a few questions?

I have been looking at that as well on and off for months but I think that to be a serious contender the system needs to be able to deliver java script nav bars (non stacking), and have a few extra free but simple cool features that WebRing have clearly overlooked in their quest to raise as much money as possible through their existing membership.
I see no problem with having to pay for additional memberships and as I've said before the removing of excess duplication can only be good for everyone in the long run. Unfortunately though the so called affilate scheme and the fee to pay to manage rings just simply cannot work.
From what I’ve seen on the other rings that use the ringlink they offer a more secured webring for ring managers. I mean seriously, now that I’m paying for this damn webring service, you would think they would remove that part: “DO NOT USE IMAGES FROM EXTERNAL HOSTS UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THEY CAN BE VIEWED EXTERNALLY. If you do you run the risk of either having the navbar reverted to default (if we're nice) or summarily losing the ring. This is the only warning you will receive.”
I’m paying for a service, to manage webrings, and really, at their choice at any time, they can remove my webring if for some flux my host is down temporarily and doesn’t display the image?
