Welcome to the main page of the Vangelis webring. Here you can find information on how to join the webring with your own Vangelis site, as well as links to all the sites that are currently part of the ring.
A webring is a collection of sites about a certain topic, all attached in a chain that forms a ring, by including a small navigation panel on the site, which links to the next and previous site in the chain. By following these links a web surfer can easily move around and browse trough the sites in a structured fashion.
This particular ring was set up to hook up all sorts of sites about Greek musician Vangelis. We decided to give it some selective functionality, in that sites can only join if they actualy add something to the web and are informative in some related way. Therefore only sites or pages that have Vangelis as main topic can join.
The user can jump from site to site, searching the desired information about Vangelis, or he can jump to a site chosen randomly from the ring.
The Vangelis Web Ring is managed by:
Antas, Dennis Lodewijks and Henk Engelen.
You can e-mail us:
Only sites that add new content to the web will be included. We will not accept pages that
simply re-use elements (text or image) from pre-existing sites on the web.
Only sites with at least one page specifically about Vangelis will be included. In cases where the Vangelis page is part of a larger site, only that specific page can become a part of the ring.
The site should consist of more than only lists of links to other sites.
The site should be comprehensible.
The site should aim to be more than just temporary.
The site should meet the unwritten rules of general netiquette and should not be offensive.
We reserve the right (without trying to censor) to refuse sites on other grounds.
About the navigation panel: Do be aware that it is not allowed to change either the image or HTML text on your web page. Besides the continuity issues and other obvious reasons, this could also result in technical problems on some or all browsers.
