Redwall 100's Top Ten List
The Redwall Top 100 is part of VOR/The Island, and is hosted by Topsitelists.Com. According to it, these are the ten most popular sites in the ROC:
Number 1. Camp Willow
Not too surprising of a number one choice. Camp Willow is one of the longest running and most popular Redwall clubs on the net.
Number 2. The Mossflower Patrol
This is a fairly well-run site, with plenty of new ideas. Good graphics, but slow-loading.
Number 3. Starfire's Redwall Abbey
A nice site. Quick loading, with good, fresh looking graphics. It does not, as far as I can see, have a member list, but it offers the typical activities of a club; games, an art gallery, fanfics, poetry, recipies, and a chat.
Number 4. Empire of Sampetra
This site is usually considered to be the top vermin club. Okay loading speed, decent graphics, but the red text gets very hard on the eyes after a short while.
Number 5. Terrouge Productions
Our site? Only number five? There MUST be something wrong with this voting system. ;-) Seriously however, you'll notice that you have to go down to the fifth place to find a truly non-club site, which supports the idea that this is more like a most members = higher ranking, rather than the site itself meriting votes.
Number 6. Admiral Yeva's Armada of Death
Quick-loading. The background and text colors are not very compatible. It has 150 members, and the usual club activities. In my opinion, it does not warrant a ranking as high as number 6.
Number 7. VOR/The Island
What can I say? Good graphics, clean look to the pages, great content... An all-around good site.
Number 8. Port Moss
A Redwall club. The site is slightly slow-loading, but it has some original activities and decent graphics.
Number 9. The Redwall Encyclopedia
A great Redwall information site, run by Katie Sullivan, which has recently completed its third year online.
Number 10. The Complete Redwall Site
An average site. With average graphics, content, and loading speed. Nice, but perhaps not #10 in the RoC.
As you'll see, some of the sites obviously do deserve their ranking in the top ten. Others, however, seem to be there only because of the number of members attracted to their club. Clubs, due to their format, cause the same people to visit again, and again, and again. This really gives them an edge over great sites like the Redwall Encyclopedia, which you would visit with far less frequency. My opinion is that this should only be a ranking of the top 100 Redwall Clubs, or it will continue to be, in most ways, inaccurate. You can find links to each page at the Redwall Top 100.
