You can find links to other great sites here. I prioritize linking to non-corporate sites and web 1.0 type stuff
- The Retronaut Webring
- Moonshot Listings
- Bucket Webring - "For cool people."
- The Funky Webring - Personal webpages that like funky visuals and colors.
- Neocreatives Webring - For visual artists (who aren't all necessarily on Neocities).
- The Transring - "For any webmaster here on the web that identifies as transgender, nonbinary, basically anything that isn't cisgender."
- Unnamed Webring - "This webring is an attempt to inspire artists & developers to build their websites and share traffic amongst each other." I can't find a name for it, but it is identified by the symbol at the bottom of the page.
- Lainchan Webring - Websites that have linked together using Lainchan, an image board revolving around the anime Serial Experiments Lain. Not all are anime focused, however. A few are on Tor and listed separately, and the webmaster keeps track of sites that have gone down.
- Low tech webring - Websites that focus on low-tech Web 1.0 type things
