The first time I created a bravenet ring turned out to be the last and I promptly deleted it. The reason being is that member passwords were showing in the manager tools. I raised the issue with Bravenet support only to be told that the ringmaster has to have administration rights in order to manage the ring.

With members private paswords???????

I don't know if the situation is the same today but you have been warned!!!!!!!

I have a Bravenet SiteRing with 230 people in it. Yes I have access to their passwords, but those are only for the SiteRing. If people are smart, they select unique passwords for each service they use. Those passwords have access to nothing else inside the Bravenet system. Good thing too, people email me all the time 'cause they forgot their password.

After running my Bravenet Ring, I felt confident enough to start a WebRing one. Both systems have features I like, and features I don't care for. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. :)

I don't know why, but it seemed easier for me to start a ring there than here. I started one here at the same time, and felt so overwhelmed I closed it and went with Bravenet. Weird, aren't I?

But I have to admire the hutzpah of someone that would spam WebRing with their Bravenet SiteRing. ;)

I never got round to establishing what the password feature was for and how the ringmaster uses it to manage the ring.
I felt very uncomfortable with the idea of passwords being transmitted off their database given that some people will use the same password for all their internet business, whereas others
will use different ones.
Do Bravenet emphasise the need for these passwords to be different? Do they tell their members that this information is being forwarded to a third party? OK, maybe you like many others
are straight and above board, but it is still a security issue and two years or more ago I considered their response unsatisfactory and still do. In all other respects they do provide an excellent webmaster service.

I checked the Join page, no they do not provide any information about how the password is used and who might have access to it. And no warning that it should be different than other passwords you use. I can see that as a flaw in an otherwise great system. Too bad I can't edit the Join page separately to provide a warning. :(
