Do you think you could have said something? - 10/29/2006
I am more than a little PO'd with WebRing at the moment. I regularly check in to WebRing and manage my rings and always read my email in my WeBring account. I recently noticed some of my rings were taken away. I thought at the time I must have missed something because I was unable to log in for a couple of weeks, but there was nothing in my WebRing mailbox except a notice telling me I was a member of the rings that were up for adoption. Well, I just lost two more rings, and finally figured out that I had an old email address on my account. Do you think it might have made sense to put a message in my WebRing inbox telling me that my email address was bad, rather than take away my rings!!! I log into my account all the time and had no idea I hadn't updated my account email address when I sold that domain.

And NO, this is not a plea to get my rings back. I know how pointless it is to even try. (I do not need the usual condescending comments, so please save them for someone who still respects WebRing management)

Perhaps you just might want to notify ring managers via the WebRing management page when their email has bounced. While I realize WebRing does not ever make a mistake, I (and the other Ring Managers) are human and may not have realized how updating their WebRing account email should be.

Thank you for our post.

I made similar requests some time ago.

I documented this issue on my page of Problems, Questions and Suggestions:

It is unfortunate that things worked as you say they have. We do place notices on your account page(s) when rings "need to be manaed" so it would seem that it would be noticed when you logged.

Catching and responding to bounced emails is also something we would like to be able to do. At this point in time we simply do not have the resources to do that. Our advice has always been to use the WRMail system - that is what it is there for. That way, when you log in you see all the correspondence you need to see. There are no bounces, junk/bulk mail folders, etc to interfere with your getting the notices you need to get.
