    TWO VERY IMPORTANT
    NOTICES FOR
    ROCCS APPLICANTS

     

    ATTENTION!!!
    .COM WEBMASTERS!!!

    The Ring of Conservative Christian Sites has placed narrow limits on site URL page advertising and on commercial site content. 

    We want everyone who visits ROCCS to clearly understand from its content that this is a free ministry which receives no financial support  from and is not beholden to any business entity or authority other than Almighty  God, and that ROCCS is neither an income-generating business nor a tax-exempt ministry.  If your web site's primary purpose is the sale of goods and services, even Christian goods and services, it probably won't be accepted for ROCCS membership unless you are willing to accept our very  limited site URL page advertising content policy, especially on Site URL Pages.

    If you have decided to apply for ROCCS membership, you will probably save some  time and effort by CLICKING  HERE to read our membership requirements for .com web sites.

    DO NOT NEGLECT READING ALL OF THE MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS ON THIS PAGE!

    There  is a return link to this section in the commercial site  information area, at the end of the commercial member rules.

    FOUR TIME-SAVING TIPS FOR
    ALL APPLICANTS

    1.  BE SURE TO INSTALL YOUR ROCCS/NEW WEBRING NAVIGATION BAR IMMEDIATELY!! IT MUST BE PRESENT WHEN YOUR SITE IS REVIEWED FOR MEMBERSHIP!!!

    2.  IF YOUR WEB SITE IS COMMERCIAL, YOU WILL PROBABLY SAVE SOME TIME IF YOU WILL CAREFULLY READ OUR RING'S RESTRICTIONS ON .COM WEB SITE ADVERTISING  BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR ROCCS MEMBERSHIP. 

    3.  AGAIN, DO NOT FORGET TO INSTALL THE ROCCS/NEW WEBRING NAV BAR IMMEDIATELY AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION!!!  IF YOU NEED HELP INSTALLING YOUR NAV BAR, CLICK ON HOW TO: "Install the NAV BAR" TO THE LEFT OF THIS PAGE. 

    4.  IF YOUR NAV BAR ISN'T THE CORRECT ONE FOR THIS RING, OR IF IT ISN'T PRESENT ON YOUR SITE URL PAGE (THE PAGE YOU SPECIFY IN YOUR  ROCCS MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION) ON THE DAY IT IS REVIEWED (usually within 1-5 days after you apply), YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE DENIED.

      IMPORTANT INFORMATION ROCCS MEMBERSHIP APPLICANTS AND WEBMASTERS

Please pay very close attention to ALL of the general ROCCS membership conditions on this page!!! In joining ROCCS or maintaining a site in our ring, you are agreeing to follow them.
 

  • You are expected to maintain your member site so that it will conform to the membership requirements, below. 
  • Please, don't make big changes to the religious or political content of your site without first reviewing these standards. ALWAYS notify ROCCS if you are changing your site's ISP or Email address. 

  •  
  • ALWAYS notify the RingMaster  BEFORE you take your site off-line or edit the Nav Bar.  If you don't, your site will "break the ring" and will be suspended. 

  •  
  • Do not modify the ROCCS Server Side Navigation Bar (SSNB) or your old HTML code fragment's links in any way. 

  •  
  • Install the   Nav Bar in a separate location on your site URL page so it doesn't "stack"   with other Nav Bars.  The Nav Bar is great unless it's jammed together   in a confusing list of other Nav Bars.

  •  
  • "Dead" site URL's will be immediately suspended or deleted from the ring at the RingMaster's discretion.

  •  
  • If we can not contact you by Email, your site will be moved from the ring to the queue (suspended from active participation in the ring) until you email us . If your response is excessively delayed, your site will be removed from our ring. ROCCS wants active webmasters.  If that happens, you will have to re-apply for ROCCS membership.  Of course, we will always welcome back a returning site. 

  •  
  • These requirements are necessary 1) to provide a smooth "surfing" experience for folks visiting ROCCS, and 2) ABOVE ALL to provide the best possible environment for our members to spread the Gospel of Christ. 


In His service,
~~Deke 
ROCCS RingMaster

 

 

APPLICANT WEB SITE STANDARDS

 

  • An applicant site, in our Bible-based opinion, MUST NOT cause a weaker brother or sister in Christ to stumble and fall into sin.  [Matthew 18:3-7; Mark 9:38-48;  Revelation 18:21; 1Corinthians 8 (esp. v. 7 and 11-13)].

  •  
  • On the initial visit, the site must give no doubt that it is authored by a  Biblical Christian who holds  politically conservative values.

  • There must be conservative political content on the site .
  • On the initial visit, the site must give no doubt that it is authored  by a  conservative Christian.

  • There must be substantial webmaster-authored  conservative Christian content  present on the web site. There must be no content which our members might consider objectionable.  ROCCS is non- denominational and does not represent any specific Biblical Christian  theological position.  ROCCS is  NOT a Protestants-only ring, but it is a Biblical Christians only ring! 
  • If used, the applicant site must present well-constructed Frames.

  • Frames are annoying when the author hasn't considered different sized displays and different browsers.
  • The site must have quickly loading Pages.

  • One minute is the  ideal maximum per page.
  • Editorial positions must uphold and promote Christian involvement in all aspects of our society and a return to the Christian foundations of the United States of America.
  • Applicant sites must be operated by decent, kind, law-abiding Biblical Christians who realize that sitting in obscurity behind a keyboard is no reason to discard their character, morals and/or integrity.  Tolerance of unbiblical doctrines is neither required nor encouraged.  A "take no prisoners" attitude toward cultists and  secular humanists is not just OK with the RingMaster, it is encouraged!  Soliders for Christ are supposed to act like soldiers, not cowards.

 

ROCCS WILL REJECT FOR OR REMOVE FROM MEMBERSHIP:

  • Any site which, in our Bible-based opinion, might even tend to cause a weaker brother or sister in Christ to stumble and fall into sin. [Matthew 18:3-7; Mark 9:38-48;  Revelation 18:21; 1Corinthians 8 (esp. v. 11-13)].
  • Any site whose owner can't be determined to be a Biblical Christian just by viewing the site's primary page(s). 

  •  
  • Any site whose owner can't be determined to be politically conservative just by viewing the site.

  •  
  • ALL Jehovah Witnesses, Mormon/LDS, and other cult, false doctrine, family- and soul-destroying heretical sites.

  •  
  • ALL racist or race-oriented sites.

  •  
  • ALL "theistic evolution" sites.  Evolution is the religion of atheists. Period. 

  •  
  • ALL politically liberal web sites.

  •  
  • ALL liberal "Christian" web sites.

  •  
  • Although ROCCS will admit almost any Bible-believing Christian site that meets membership standards, we will neither admit to our ring nor allow a member site to remain in the ring which posts materials offensive to other Christians.  ROCCS supports those brothers and sisters in Christ who believe the KJV  to be God's inspired Word, however, any site displaying the following graphic or any similarly offensive material will not be allowed to join or remain part of ROCCS:  
     
  • ALL atheist, deist, or agnostic web sites, or sites promoting atheistic deistic, or agnostic principles,  including those promoting so-called theistic evolution.   Any site promoting one or all of these anti-Christ doctrines will be rejected for  membership or removed from membership without notice.  ROCCS will not  promote or present secular humanism, Marxism, Leninism, DemocRAT-style Liberalism  (godless socialism / communism) or other secular world views even if the owner claims to be a  Christian.  There are many Satanically deluded deceivers in the world.  They're not welcome at ROCCS.
  • PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND  THAT ROCCS members are not  ashamed of the Gospel.  We are ABSOLUTELY  NOT politically correct. We reject the destructive and deadly influence  of multicultural diversity as a fast track to war and destruction (Bosnia  and the Middle East are excellent examples). We also reject eco-whacko environmentalist web sites and their globalist / green / new age religious  icon, global warming.

    ROCCS is NOT a Protestants only ring! As  defined on this page, we restrict ROCCS membership without apology ONLY  to Bible-believing and promoting,  Christ-centered, Biblical morality- upholding, politically conservative Christian  web sites without regard to  their denomination or theological persuasion.  If you don't like our policies, you'll be  happier  elsewhere. 

    Don't bother to call us Nazis. We are proud to be captialists; capitalism feeds the world!  NAZIS ARE mass-murdering, godless SOCIALISTS, not capitalists. Their political ideology and disregard for truth is practiced by Liberals, not Conservatives.

    Liberals: Take the hint! Take a hike!

    If you're planning to complain to the RingMaster about this ring's policies and positions, don't bother.  If you're a masochistic Liberal, do yourself a big favor; don't complain to me about our ring's policies, you WON'T like my reply.

  • One page "sites" and most pages that are part of a larger web site.

  •  
  • Any site advocating anything close to violence (self-defense is OK).

  •  
  • Sites which contain profanity, nudity or the impression of nudity, the impression of immorality, or even SEEM to support immoral behavior. Simply put, you must abstain from the appearance of evil.

  •  
  • Commercial Sites where the sale of products is attempted   on  the Site URL. A link or two to your commercial site is OK, but selling   of  products on the Site URL is not permitted. If a substantial portion of  your  pages sell products, including Christian products and literature, your  site  is not acceptable in our ring. Of course, if you want  to buy a domain name for ROCCS we'll gladly put your banner on the home page! Just kidding! (|;-{> Wink!

    Return to "Attention .Com Webmasters!!!"
     

  • Sites that 'trap' a surfer's browser in a frame or the site's URL in the surfer's address bar when they leave. 

  •  
  • Pages that don't TOTALLY release control to the next URL/web site (a type of trap).

  •  
  • Long load times. 

  • One site that our founder Tedd Keever checked was still loading after nine minutes at 28.8 KBPS!
     
  • Too many broken links, especially graphic links. 

  • Keever once reviewed a site that had 29 (no typo) broken graphic links on page one.
     
  • A site consisting solely of links to other sites or lists of nothing but web rings.

  • This might entertain the author, but certainly not the visitor. You must have authored a substantial part of the material that is present on your site. There are rare exceptions to this rule, but they will be made on a case-by-case basis only.
     
  • Please understand that there are other issues not detailed here which might disqualify a site for membership or for continued membership. The majority of them, though, are related to the previous items. 

Membership Suspensions and Deletions

  • Any site applying for ROCCS membership will not be reviewed for admission until its webmaster has joined Yahoo!WebRing and installed the SSNB (see the bottom of this page) on their Site URL page. 
  • If a submitted site has not acted according to the requirements of this page within one (1) day, the application will be deleted from the queue. 
  • Effective December 19, 2000: If a current member modifies or removes the ROCCS HTML fragment or Navigation Bar without written permission from ROCCS' RingMaster, member site will be suspended from active participation in the ring. The site will not be returned to the ring until the webmaster has installed the Server Side Nav Bar. There are rare and very limited exceptions to this rule.
  • The time that a site may remain suspended from active participation in ROCCS before membership is revoked is subject to the RingMaster's discretion.  The RingMaster may delete for cause the membership of any site at any time he deems proper.

  •  
  • The RingMaster keeps detailed records of all applicant and member-related correspondence. Webmasters whose sites have been deleted from ROCCS are encouraged to reapply unless their site was in violation of our site rejection policy, above.

Conservative Christian  -  Generally, those people whose political ideology favors minimal government involvement in citizen's lives and preserves the Constitutionally-delegated rights of self-government as opposed to oppressive federalism.  Also, those who value freedom more than equality but would restrict some limited elements of personal freedom to preserve order.  A conservative Christian's standard of righteousness on all issues is the Bible alone, in its entirety.

Biblical Christian  -  A disciple of Jesus Christ.  We accept the eternal truths of 1Corinthians  15:3-4 and Romans 3:23 and have acted publicly on Romans 10:9-10,13.  ROCCS' major concern is what a site does with Christ's message and  the freedom His children have through Him.

Political Conservative  -  Generally, those whose political ideology favors narrowly limited government.  Also,  those  who value freedom more than equality, but who would place logical limits on freedom to preserve social order.  Liberty is not license.

Liberals   -  Bigoted, Christian-baiting, cowardly Ted Kennedy types or -- perhaps worse -- lying, perversion-loving Bill Clinton and Algore types.

Liberal "Christians"  -  NOT Bible-believing, NOT God-trusting Christians, they are CINO's (Christians in Name Only). They are heretics and deceivers who appear to have "a form of Godliness" (2Timothy 3:5). They are much worse than Ted Kennedy types, and far more dangerous than Clinton and Algore types.

ROCCS' WEBMASTER IS:

PROUD TO BE POLITICALLY INCORRECT:   Straight, PRO-Life, Christian and of the opinion that spotted owl tastes like chicken. 
-- ROCCS Founder, Tedd Keever

From the Deke-laration of Independent Thinking: " WE FIND THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT: 
(1) God intended animals for food and not for the vote. 
[2} Flipper is stupid and dangerous. 
[3] Yogi Bear would rather have you FOR dinner than invite you TO dinner.
[4] An animal's rights shall not be infringed: Animals have the right to be served well done, smothered in ketchup and onions.
[5] An animal rights vegetarian's diet goes to his head."
~~Deke

Proposed text of the Moose Amendment to the Deke-laration of Independent Thinking:
"Tiny dogs make better footballs than pets."
"Animals have the right to remain tasty. If they do not remain tasty, it can and will be used against them in a garbage disposal."
