You have reached the official home page of The Sekhmet Web Ring. This web ring is dedicated to honouring the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet. It aims to gather together the sites of Her children who wish to show their devotion to Her online, and also those with academic and/or informational content useful to those who would wish to know Her better.
All paths are welcome, be you Kemetic Revivalist, Reconstructionist, Wiccan, or other Pagan. If you are a child of Our Lady, please read on.
If you have a web page or site that is dedicated to The Lady Sekhmet, or that details the history of Her, Her temples, or Her worship, then you would be welcome to join this ring.
There are a minimum set of standards that your site must meet to be approved for membership of the ring:
Pages must have some relevant content on the ring topic, not just links to other sites.
Pages can't contain adult material, pornographic material, or profanity. Even though this ring is 'rated R', it should remain suitable for older children and families. The ring is 'rated R', as some people might find the content offensive to their beliefs.
No Horror/Fantasy/Role Playing site will be accepted, this ring is about history, spirituality and religion.
No pages promoting or condoning hate or discrimination on the grounds of gender, politics, race, religion, denomination, or sexual orientation.
Visitors to your site must be able to leave via the WebRing NavBar. If this is not accessible from within the site, it will need to be moved.
Once you're in, here are four rules to keep membership in the ring. This may sound a bit harsh, but I've implemented these to make the ring a fun and interesting exprience for all. After all, would you rather surf around a well-maintained ring with good sites or one that is plagued with dead links and sites that haven't been updated in years? A great ring brings more traffic to all of us.
You must display the ring code on your registered page. PASS_L will be treated as FAIL in this ring. Please make sure you submit the page you are planning on placing the ring's code on. If you have a rings page, you will have to join with it, rather than your main page, otherwise your site will FAIL the checker and will not be added to the ring.
You must keep your WebRing account and site info up-to-date. If I try to contact you and the email bounces, your site will be suspended. If I am unable to make any contact within 30 days, your site will be deleted from the ring.
Deleted sites are free to re-apply, but will only be accepted if the reason for the deletion has been addressed.
After submitting your site to the ring, here is what's going to happen:
The manager will review your page and check for proper placement of the code. If it's not yet on your page, your page, if qualified, will be approved by using conditional approval. This means your site will be added as suspended and remain as such, until it PASSes the checker. If you do not add the code to your page within 30 days, your site submission will expire for inactivity and you will have to rejoin the ring if you are still interested.
You will be notified by email, normally within 24 hours, whether your page has been added to the ring or not. The manager reserves the right to deny membership to anyone whose page does not meet the minimum requirements, call it QA (Quality Assurance), if you will. :)
If your page has not been added to the ring, the manager will email you with an explanation as to the reasons. That way, if you still want to join, you have a chance to correct the problem.
For help with WebRing related issues, check out the WebRing Users Guide, which was created and is maintained by Andrea. This site is definitely recommended reading and an invaluable resource, especially for new members/managers who aren't familiar with the WebRing system yet.
If you are having problems with your ring code or have a question, just want to comment on something, or voice your concerns, please do contact me by filling out this contact form (all fields are required). Make sure you provide as many details as possible, otherwise I may not be able to help you in a most effective manner and a resolution may be delayed due to insufficient information. I'll be more than happy to assist you in any way I possibly can.
