WebRing Announces...
New Profile Pages
You might have noticed that we have added yet one more way for you to connect with your fellow WebRing members. The new system profile page!

What's a System Profile?
A system profile is the default profile page that all WebRing members receive. Wherever you find a user ID, click on it to open that member's profile page. Until now, the system profile page only displayed the last time the member was active, a brief introduction/ message, and a way to contact them.

What's New?
You can take a peek into who members are and what they do on WebRing. You will find the following info about the member:

  • Their Recent Activity
  • The Rings They Manage
  • Their Memberships
  • Their Shoutbox (2.0 only)
  • Their Icon (2.0 only)

Additionally, each item is linked to the place they were active. So, if you want to visit the ring they visited or read the blog they commented on, just click the link.

System Profile — Is There Any Other Kind?
Yes! As contributing members, WebRing 2.0 members get their very own custom profile page. If activated, the WebRing 2.0 member's system profile page will display a link to their custom profile page. Want 2.0?

What's Next?
Now, don't hold us to what we've presented in here. We have more changes ahead, including an enhanced communications tool to replace the Shoutbox on system profile pages.

You can help! Let us know what changes, additions or improvements you would like to see made to the system profile page:*

WebRing Supports
Local Buddy Bear Programs
Group B Strep In many countries, law enforcement groups have deployed a specialized tool when dealing with children of tragedy — Teddy Bears!

Police officers want to alleviate the anguish of a child who was just involved in a tragedy, from car crashes to domestic abuse. An officer's first instinct is to give the child a much needed hug. However, hugs from strangers generally produce negative feelings in the child. Child psychologists suggested a different approach — give the child a stuffed animal to hug instead. The results have been overwhelmingly positive.

Since its introduction, "Buddy Bear" programs have popped up all over the place. We searched for a centralized Buddy Bear Program to recommend, to no luck. We did, however, discover many calls for stuffed animals from local police departments. Please consider contacting your local police department to learn how you can help support their Buddy Bear Program.

How to Delete Blog Comments
Occasionally, an unscrupulous spammer will desecrate your blog via the comment features. However, you have the power to purge your WebRing blog of the offending comment. To delete comments on your blog:
  1. Sign in to your blog via the "Blog" tab on your My Account page. (Note: This is not the same sign in as when you sign in to the general WebRing system.)
  2. Open the comments for the post with the spam. You should now find a "Delete" link below each comment.
  3. Click the "Delete" link to remove the comment.

That's all there is to to deleting blog comments!
