Welcome to the Awards Page of the IRC Help Ring where you can find the winner
of our monthly Best of the Ring Award. This Months winner of the Best
of the Ring award is
A Pirch Help Page by ^wolf^.
You can read why in a moment.
First, a word about the award itself. The Best of the Ring award is
awarded each calendar month to one of the sites in the webring. The award
is made based on a variety of criteria.
The Ringmaster and helpers select the winner on the basis of overall quality
and upkeep of the sites, the positive and negative feedback from people who
browse the ring, and on the basis of sites who's webmasters have made great
improvements during the month.
The award serves two major purposes. Firstly it provides recognition for
the hard work our ring members put into the helpful sites they create. Its
not easy to keep these sites updated with the latest release details.
Secondly it gives our visitors to the webring a recommended site, and through
the Forum for comments
, reviews of the content and quality of the sites within
the IRC Help Ring.
Best of the Ring Award Winner
for November 1999
A Pirch Help Page by ^wolf^
This site almost breaks our rules, since it provides a great deal of external links
for its content. That said however it makes an excellent bookmark site to a lot
of exceptional quality pIRCh information, tips and bug fixes.
At least two of our members joined the ring after seeing this help page and admiring
the quality of the info available here. It was through this site that many people
learned how to get around the dcc bug in pIRCh 98.
In short, this site is a very useful resource to pIRCh users, as well as to
channel ops who would like a good url to send pIRCh users with problems to. We
here in the IRC Help Ring have no hesitation in recommending this site as a source
of good help, and we hope to see the page grow further in time.
