Eureka! Now this is a genuine FIND. I looked for this weeks ago, but the script website is dead and I thought I had reached a dead end. Today I tried my search differently on a different engine and found the actual Ringlink script. Better, it was last updated in only 2017 so it’s current!
Ringlink is a perl script for hosting webrings. Note the plural. You can set this up as a webring hosting platform. Yes strangers can sign up and start their own webring or webmasters can sign up for a pre-existing ring.
There are still some small highly niche ring hosts running this script today.
I once ran a small niche webring hosting service using an earlier version of the Ringlink script back in 2003ish. It worked like a charm. I think I had about a dozen rings running on it, not all of them were mine. I don’t know what the top end is for this script, that is, how many rings it can run and how large. I know my version had a proper index of rings and I think each ring also had an index of sites. Ringmasters had their own admin panel and the RingLink host had an admin panel. On my version ring codes were all HTML.
To get this running you need a CGI host. Some knowledge of perl and HTML.
Now this is a tool for a webring revival.

This is a full featured script. If you want to create and host one webring. This is not a server for hosting multiple webrings. Still very handy since you have control on your own server.

Wordstar was the second word processor I ever learned and used. Certainly the first I used in MS-DOS. (The very first was Perfect Writer in CP/M.) I always liked Wordstar but I think I replaced it with the DOS version of MS Word.

(The keyboard shown in the slide show, looks like it could be from my old Kaypro II CP/M computer, a Keytronics keyboard. Wordstar was the most popular word processor in CP/M.)
