The MIDI Ring in national news
_ Imn"The Net" magazine (vol.2 issue 12) did a full page story on WebRings. Out of some 40,000 webrings, they chose only ten premium rings to write about, our's getting a spot at the top of the page! The MIDI Ring logo (the chrome ring from the home page) is displayed at the top of the article next to the review of our ring. 
_ _I've scanned the article , if you care to see it.
Get to know your neighbors!
_ Each month I encourage you to use your Midi Ring fragment and visit the site preceeding and following yours. To insure that you are getting the most out of your Midi Ring membership, make shure that the NEXT and BACK links in their fragment is functioning. Otherwise you are missing hits! If there are ANY problems with the site before or after your's notify me .
The Ring is ALWAYS changing!
_ Every month I change the order (or sequence) of sites in the ring. 
This is done for two reasons:
1. After studying the hit statistics, I place all sites receiving low hits after sites with a large hit count. This gives everyone full and fair benefits of being in this ring.
2. It keeps the ring fresh and interesting for our many ring surfers, especially those that may always start from a paticular ring site.
