Just curious... - 09/14/2004
Just curious what others think of this set up. This site has about 5 different entry pages (entry2, entry3 etc.), one for each nav bar stack. I have never been happy about accepting a site like this and I'd like a few others to comment if you please. Because of the way the return links are placed would this be considered as one-way?

Due to the fact that i cant find a link back to ANY of the entry pages from any of the other pages of this site i would not be aproving it, I have a standard email for site like this, as If they dont link back to the webring pages to me they are one-way.

Im not certain of the terminology but i think this site is what defines "One-Way" in its fullest, i need to go look at that page in wrug again before i could say for 100%

Thanks for looking and for your comments, at least I'm not too far off.

There are links back to all the entry pages, I didn't point out where as I wanted to see if anyone else actually found them.

I got a really sarcastic e-mail back from the site owner about the placement of the links. As far as he/she is concerned everyone is equiped with a back button on their browser, or better still I'm informed they can open in a new window. Like everyone knows the site owner can't be bothered providing a straight forward link back to the bars before they even enter the site :(

I think I have a pretty good idea what a one-way site is, this has got links back as I said BUT I really don't think most people would look where they are. So, to me, it's as good as a one-way site.

your welcome, The question now would be to if that their sending sarcastic emails then does one realy need them in a ring?

Oh no, I don't want them in any of my rings. I really was curious if anyone else considered the site to be one-way or if they could find the links back to the nav bars (or if it was just me).

i wasnt meaning any attack, i was just stating the obvious question that i would think most would put to it if they received and email purely of sarcasm...
