Matt's Department 56 Extravaganza
        Hello & welcome to the Department 56 Ring.  I created this web ring on July 2nd, 1997 to help D56 websites link together.  This is one of the best places on the entire Internet for finding fabulous Dept 56 web sites. This web ring is presented in the hope of providing Dept. 56 collectors info, great pictures, and interesting friendly people. So I hope you decide to join if you have a web site!!

        Would you like to visit a random site  while your here?

        This is also where the Dept 56 Ring graphics should appear.

        Save a copy of the two Department 56 Webring graphics you see below. (This is optional since the images can be linked.) The one on the left is called "home.gif" and the one on the right "next.gif". Copy the following HTML fragment to your page by copying it from your registration E-mail you'll be receiving.

        There are a few rules for this ring.
         - If your site has adult content e.t.c. do not submit your site, it will not be added to the ring.
         - You MUST have the HTML fragment on your page before you will be inserted into the ring. 
        - It must be easy to find so we don't have to search for it. It doesn't have to be on the front page, but you must have a link to your rings on the main page and the URL you submit must be the URL the ring is on or the ring won't work. After you have the code up E-mail the Ringmaster of Dept. 56 Webring and ask her to add you to the ring. Be sure to include your Site ID Number in the e-mail message. She will probably want to look at your page to make sure it is worthy of addition and make sure the Dept. 56 Webring HTML fragment on your page is okay.

        Here is a handy new graphic that can be used for linking your main site to your page that features the Department 56 Web Ring info. Feel free to copy it and use it on your web site. You may also link the graphic to my server. The HTML code for the graphic is

        <IMG SRC="" border=0 
        alt="Department 56 Web Ring Page"></A>

        Department 56 Web Ring Page

         - After checking out your page, the Ringmaster will take your Site ID Number and use it to add you to the ring. You should then receive an e-mail telling you you've been added.

        That's it! You should now be able to navigate the entire ring until you make it back to your own page (although it may take a while). An easy way to make sure it is working is to go to the homepage of the person who added you and see if the next button takes you to your own page.

         If you're having problems adding this fragment to your page, please feel free to email the Ringmaster by clicking here.

        Useful Information: The Dept 56 Ring has its own id, like your site. The site id is the number given to you upon registration, the ring id is "dept56".

        If you are already a member, you can edit your site information below:
