Don't get personal or you'll get zapped, or banned.
Not that I'll ever be able to tell - the "is this up" sites only work for domains, not for individual pages, so I have no way of telling if my webspace really is down, or if our (expletitive deleted) security software (and its many false positives) is the real problem.
One last joy of the night, seen after enjoying a snack - I can find the index.html file I uploaded in the manager, but my page doesn't display, as far as I can tell. But then maybe Avast is getting in the way?
Forget this. I'm going to bed.
Never mind - the subdirectory I just created vanished, and I'm back to where I was. Strange.
@Netlangs - try toggling between "public access" and "webspace" a few times. I seem to have been able to get my file manager working that way - I was able to get the "/wr" to vanish from my home directory and then create a subdirectory that way, at least.
I'm not saying that we should all pretend that Webring does no wrong, but one can be critical when the circumstances warrant, without being spiteful. Or psychotic, as the case may be.
As for why Support doesn't care enough to help its own members - Having people cheering for their economic destruction in the shoutbox probably hasn't been doing much for their work ethic. So, could those who did that please try to hold off from doing that, in the future?
As for why an r360 account would be unavailable to the person with whose webring account it is supposed to be associated, agsain, this seems obvious. There is no "syncing", to use Webring's word. The webspaces and r360 accounts that some of us had been getting were created by hand, not by software, so when Support started slacking off, what was probably a tiring and repetitive job stopped being done. Also, quite foolishly, Webring allowed anybody who wanted one to ask for an r360 account without having a Webring account, first. People who weren't active on Webring came in and squatted on some of the more obvious names like "math", I guess.
I'm guessing that what happened is that the system failed to create a directory for my account, leaving me in the directory in which member accounts are listed, when viewed by somebody with root level access. Not having such access, myself, I can't edit or create anything in a directory on the level this leaves me on.
Non-functional webring webspace on this account, too. Quick way to tell if your webspace is broken: Go into your main directory in the file manager. If under the words "selected folder" you see "/wr", then you won't be able to create a webspace with your account, either.
Yay. My old homepage location vanished, I just tried to recreate my site on Webring Webspace - and I'm guessing that everybody knows what happened next. By the way - this account has been around for a while, so if anybody was thinking that this has only been affecting new accounts, not so. Given Webring's stunning performance when the time came to fix the member hubpages (remember those?), I think we know what to expect with Webring Webspace, I'm afraid - long neglect, after which they'll hope that we'll forget that the service ever existed.
I sent yet another email to Support about a week ago, after they seemed to have returned from their surfing trip or wherever they've been. So far, no response. I've been waiting for a response to my initial probloem report since May, at this point. Early May.
Greetings, oluwanbe1881. Whatever you do, don't get a premium membership. You probably won't get the features promised, and when you write to Support about this, they won't bother to respond. Contrary to what you'll probably hear, they are still around, they just don't feel like bothering to help most of their own users.

Maybe I hold a birthday party for it after Webring has ignored it for a full year.
I guess Webring insists on having at least one completely unacceptable problem plague each account? I still can't edit anything on my Webspace without getting the error messages I've already mentioned. My problem report will be four months old in three days. -> www.webring.com/forum/webspacesupport?did=291;sumthread
The forums are, indeed, neglected, but directly mailing to support using that form sometimes produces results, I guess. Have you tried editing your site in the last few days, Netlangs?
This is a good link to use, found by going to "contact us" -> www.webring.org/cgi-bin/contact?mail1=membership
Netlangs - Nothing I did. Webring fixed the problem for me.
typos - editing has
Hey Math how did you do it? My webspace is still dead for aditing and ha been for several months!
Europa4210 - the Lotus Europa is a sports Car. I did a Google search ang got several pages of hits, but nothing in WebRing.
Europa4210 - Noooool is telling you the truth. Honestly, I don't even know what "Lotus Europa 743539R" means, and I doubt anybody else who will be reading this will, either.
tedbergeron - The same thing happened to me. You have to apply through PayPal or your credit card for a refund.

They're setting their system to interfere with users who are trying to discuss a legitimate concern? That's disappointing - and unethical.
What about YOU?
