You may have heard that I am turning the ring over to a new ring mom starting January 1st. The ring will be headed up by Risa who has been a ring checker and a tech support helper for the ring in the past. She's already found at least one person to help her (in addition to all the ring checkers!) Thank you, Risa!
It was a difficult decision to turn over the ring to a new host, but I've been running it for over three years (if I'm calculating it correctly) and have helped it to grow from somewhere around 200-250 sites to around 1000. It's been a lot of work and I'm ready to hand it over to Risa and her team!
I'll be continuing to add the sites that joined during the last open application period, but I won't be opening the ring again before I turn it over to Risa. Thanks for your patience and cooperation during the transition.
That's all for today. I'm now spending my free time clearing the ring of spam applications. In the last two weeks I've been seriously hit with them (100's). Seriously -- spam websring applications. Why?!?!?!
