Hello! Welcome to the home page of

The NeoCities Self-Insert Webring!

If you're a resident of NeoCities, or you were a part of GeoCities and other older web communities, you have probably run into webrings before. Simply put, they're a list of like-minded websites arranged so that all the links form a loop. This is no different, and serves as a webring for anybody who participates in self-insert or self-ship!

(Check out the 2022 April Fool's Day joke here!)

(Check out our existing members here!)


There are no hard and fast "rules" for this webring! It's mostly just the obvious - be polite/respectful, and participate in self-insert culture (either platonic or romantic)!

Different personal websites/hosting services other than Neocities are fine as well. We have a few members on the list from other hosts, which is exciting!

You can request more than one character, but they will all be in one single entry, i.e. "Name is hanging out with Character from Series and Character from Series!". They don't have to be from the same series.

The same character might be listed more than once!


To apply for the webring, I'll need the following information from you. You can send me an email at koinuko@yahoo.com to submit your application!

Your name: Your name or URL to display!
Your relationship to the character: "is best friends with", "is dating", etc.! If you want something else, that's okay too - but the format is (your name) (relationship) (character), so keep that in mind!
Character Name: Please submit the character's name how you want it displayed - full name or first name!
Series: Where your character is from!
Icon: A square image of your character! It will be displayed at 100 x 100px, so make sure it looks good at that size!
URL: Your website's URL!
88 x 31 Button: Not required, but on the list of members I like to use a button to link to you when available! Since switching to the automated members' list, buttons are no longer displayed for now ^^

09/25/22 UPDATE: The expected wait time for being added to the webring has increased from a week to about a month - big jump, I know! However, lots more people are joining now than when I first started the webring, and the process is a little bit tedious. I add everybody in chronological order (i.e., the people who applied first will be added first), so it may take quite a while, but I don't ignore anybody's request. Worst case scenario, you can e-mail me again or comment on my profile and ask if I've gotten your application, and I'll check to make sure that I have!

If you ever want to make changes to your information, you can send a follow-up email, as long as you tell me your URL, your member number (the number assigned to you and placed in your code), and give me the changes you want to make!

Now for the good stuff...!

This is what the webring will look like - with your information in it, of course! (Dimensions are 304px by 168px!) In order to get this on your website, you will need to do two things. First of all:

^ Copy this code to your website where you want to have the webring widget. SECONDLY - when you are accepted to the webring, you will be assigned a number! You will need to change the "0" in the above code to your assigned number, or else you will be showing the incorrect information! So, for example, if you are assigned number 4 in the webring, then your code will say:

positionInList = 4

If you don't put the correct number, you will be displaying somebody else's information!!

09/25/22 Update: Known Script Issue

Some people have run into an issue where the webring conflicts with another webring or script on their site - usually a version of Jellyring, but not always. If you have another script running using the 'onload' function, this will cause a conflict with the self-insert webring, but don't despair! You can try using this version of the script instead. If it still doesn't work, shoot me an e-mail and I'll try to take a look. :)

07/27/22 Update: Vertical and Mini Widgets Added

Hi everyone! I am happy to announce that there are now two different sizes for the webring widget if you don't like the one above.

The left is a preview of the vertical widget (190px by 297px), with the mini version (248px by 97px) next to it. These should work the same as the legacy widget according to my tests so far, but there may be some unforseen issues I didn't anticipate. The mini widget displays the character icon at 60px by 60px instead of the usual 100px by 100px, so for some images it won't look very good. You can test either widget design by clicking on it and entering your assigned number to preview how your information will look! (Once I've given you your assigned number, that is.)

Vertical widget code:

Mini widget code:


TBH... if there are any problems, try refreshing the cache first (CTRL + F5) or giving the page an hour or two to respond. You can also open the page in an Incognito tab to force the code to reload.

If the webring appears, but doesn't look right, please let me know and I will try to fix it! This is my first attempt at something like this, so I appreciate your patience! Sometimes, it turns out that a website might have inherent CSS that I didn't account for in the webring code, and I have to edit the widget to make sure it doesn't get affected.

Before you go!

 Thanks so much for all the support so far! ^^

One last thing: this webring was heavily inspired by Jellyworld! The themes of these two rings may be vastly different, but you should definitely hop over and get yourself a jelly if you don't already have one!
