hi there.
i run a small scale web directory. when ever a user adds his/her site to my directory oi send tham a small email "your link has been added" sort of thing. I also set up a webring last week and offered my users the chance to become part of the webring.... all they do is click on a link from the email. fill in a few fields and i either eccept or decline the offer. The bigest problem is a lot of people like the idea and sign up...but not so many actualy paste the code in their pages...in effect i am sebding out traffic and most members are also sending out traffic but there are a few who simply refuse to paste the code.... how long should i let this go on. i know it sometimes takes time to paste code in pages but it is unfare to members who abide ny the rules. what would you do in a situation like this???

>how long should i let this go on

I'd give them 1 week, at most.

If you are doing this all in house, send out a spider once a day until the code goes up. Don't add them to the ring until the code is there.

I've found it best to cover yourself before this kind of action/reaction happens. Put the 1 week terms in your introductory email, giving it a positive spin. Tell anyone that needs more time to email you when they have the code in place.

With the webrings at one online community, people were not added to the webring until they notified the ringmaster that they had added the code to their page, and she verified it. Then she added them. It was often a problem, because they couldn't figure out how to put the code on their pages.

Yes, require that they paste in the code before you verify them!
