Welcome to Nibelung! Presumably if you're here, you've read the fine print. If not, you should read it
You could just call your ring something like "Jane's Ring," but
what fun is that? We like outrageous titles here. We don't like
vulgar ones. "Vulgar" is hard to define ... but if you have a title
like "My [expletive] List of Sites," we will probably ask you to
change it. You can list any sites you want, of course, but the titles
are out in full view and we're a little more stringent about those.
Enter the title of your ring.
You can change the title later if you decide it isn't as wonderful
as you thought.
Your name. We prefer that you use your real name, but it
will be displayed, so if you don't want to use your
real name in public, feel free to abbreviate it or use a
Enter your name.
This, too, can be changed later.
This needs to be an address that will actually reach the person
who's running the ring. It will be verified by return mail within the
next few days (when the Valkyries get to it). If the address isn't
valid, your ring will be removed. We never do anything untoward with
your address - see the fine print
about our non-commercial use policy.
Your email address will be shown to people when they list
your sites (although hopefully in a fairly spamproof way).
We regard your email address as proof that you're you. If you
forget your password or have to ask the Valkyries to change anything
for you, we will generally refuse unless the request comes from this
Enter your email address.
This is the internal ID code for your site. It may be the least
important item to you, but it's the most important to us - it's how
Nibelung keeps track of you. For this reason, you may get a few
messages saying "someone else is using that ID." Keep going Back and
trying again until you come up with a unique one.
Your ID must be 3 to 10 characters long, and may not contain any
characters other than the letters a through z, the digits 0 through 9,
and underscores. You should make a note of your ID, as you will
need it to get to your ring if you decide to hide your ring from the
Enter your ID.
You need your password to make changes to your ring, so make a
note of it.
That said, it's not a very secure password - we send it back
and forth without encryption - it's just to help prevent other people
from altering your ring. So don't use the same password you use
for other, more important things, okay?
Your password must be 3 to 10 characters long, and may not contain
any characters other than the letters a through z, the digits 0
through 9, and underscores. Enter it twice, to make sure you've typed
Enter your password.
6. Do it!
Don't press the button more than once. Nibelung will churn for a
while and then eventually take you to an empty list page where you can
add sites. It helps if you hum a little from "Ride of the Valkyries"
while you wait.
