Ring Adoption Not working - 06/28/2006

I am also of the mindset that the Ring Adoption system is not working. I have been trying to adoped a ring since December yet the system still shows the ring is adoptable, and that when I try to re-apply of adoption, I recieve a message indicating that I have already applied... how long does it take to adopt a ring - its clear that something is wrong..

Re: frs_75

You have a score of 2.5, its unlikely you will be elgitable to adopt any rings with a score that low. You can find your score here:

ID: p5y0n1c, score=6.5 (max 11 - 5.5 for sites, 5.5 for Rings)

Site Membership contribution: 5.5; Ring Management contribution: 1

Active Sites: 128, Passing: 128, Failing:
p5y0n1c HAS Site(s) outside of own Ring(s) - good.
Overall navigation rating of all Rings managed: 100
Rings Managed: 1
- (bonus for "good" number of Rings managed: -- max of 1)

So why can't I adopt? BTW I manage 2 rings, but it only ever shows one, the same on the my rings bit, but I can access and edit both rings?????

Don't know if anybody from webrings reads this, but it seems strange that I have just been accepted as ringmaster for a ring (not complaining) and got a message about somebody else being given another ring I tried to adopt, so they must be sorting it out! 8o)

I got to adopt a ring six weeks after I applied for it!
I think I read, "some where," that a automated procedure is still used - but they got a human hand to approve it! Which accounts for the delay!

I am also encountering this problem. I am trying to adopt this ring after it sends out emails asking if members interested to adopt the ring. I clicked the button to adopt and I am supposed to wait about a week to know the result. After a long wait I think several months later the same mail arrives again asking to be adopted. I have been through the cycle about 3 to 4 times. Can admin do something? The ring is pokecenter. Id is killer. =)

I honestly think the adopt a ring option AND the scoring are a joke....I've applied numerous times, recently one that has never been adopted out and I'm wondering if it ever will. I checked my "score" (by the way how do they come up with this stuff) and they are telling me I have a very bad score for an unverified email address.........which when I go into my account my email IS verified and they aren't having trouble reaching me for anything else, all my codes are current as well. I think they need to over haul the "system" because something isn't right and their scoring system is ridiculous.
