The Wisconsin Pagan Web Ring is a loosely organized group of web authors ranging in experience from novice to professional. This ring does not exist to show off a web author's handiwork. Rather, it is another means for Wisconsin pagans, Wiccans, Asatru, Druids, and other non-mainstream, non-violent, earth-oriented spiritual paths to find each other and know that they are not alone.

That having been said...

There are, of course, a few ground rules...


If you've never joined a Web Ring before, here's some instructions and words of encouragement.

If you've heard enough and want to join NOW, here's the submission form.

If you'd like to create your own graphics, I have a few starter graphics if you'd care to use them.

Here's some experimental code and graphics for a ring link that's not quite so bland.

Pornography: The definition is understandably hard to pin down. I will attempt to differentiate between artistic nudity and prurient explicit sex: Pornography is usually photographic and is graphic depictions of female and male sex organs whose only purpose is gratification. For anyone who's interested, I have few problems with pornography if all involved are consenting adults, but that discussion is for another day. For the purposes of this ring, it is not allowed.

Artistic nudity is usually not photographic, and contains depictions of male or female bodies or body parts, and its purpose is usually a statement by the author.

Bottom Line: If you think your site might be disqualified on the basis of its graphics, submit it anyway and let me (and the ring members, if it's so borderline I can't make up my mind), decide whether it fits. I think it's better that you act as though the site meets the guidelines and get rejected than not submit your site at all. If you KNOW the site is pornographic, that's a different story.
