How to Join

So, you are interested in social drinking, and aren't afraid of the internet - good for you! PI members are referred to as 'DPOCs', Drinking-Points-Of-Contact. Every member can either have an email link only, or an email link AND one, or even two links, to their own web page(s).

First, you need to decide if you only want an email link, or both an email and a web page link.

  1. You MUST have a web page you can modify.
  2. Add the "reciprocal link" HTML code as displayed below.
  3. Modify this HTML code so that it contains
    • YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS and
    • YOUR CITY/STATE/PROVINCE/COUNTRY.
  4. Upload the image file on the right called "pi.jpg". It's only 3.6Kb. To download it, put your mouse over the image and [for PC: right-click it] [for MAC: hold down your mouse button]. A pop-up menu will appear. Save it to your hard disk, and then upload the file to your web server, in the same directory as the html file you updated above.
  5. Email the Pubmates International Curator. In the email, give the URL (web location) of your web page that has the Pubmates International link.

It's important that people know HOW TO CONTACT YOU VIA EMAIL and roughly where you generally reside. You don't have to use your REAL NAME, REAL ADDRESS, or anything very personal.

This is done to protect as a well as provide communication. All Pubmates International does is let people of similar interests, (such as drinking and being social) meet one another. It is strictly up to the individuals sending and recieving email to decide whether or not they wish to actually physically ever meet one another.

Furthermore, we here at PI have no interest in knowing anything personal about our members other than their web URLs and email addresses. This is simply an exchange of links for people of similar interests.


Reciprocal Link HTML Code

The first thing you need to do to join Pubmates International is to create a link back to us. Here is the HTML code to add to your web page.

<!-- Begin Pubmates International DPOC Link Code -->
<hr><center><table><tr><td width=36% align=right>
 <font size=+1>
 Visiting YOUR CITY, STATE/PROVINCE, COUNTRY? 
 <a href="mailto: YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS">E-mail us and  
 join us for a beer!</a>
 </font>
</td><td align=center>
 <a href="http://members.tripod.com/~pubmates" TARGET="_top"><img
 src="pi.jpg" border=0></img></a>
</td><td align=left>
 <font size=+1>
 Not in my town?  Don't give up! Check out 
 <a href="http://members.tripod.com/~pubmates" TARGET="_top">Pubmates
 International</a> for other drinkers around the world!
 </font>
</td></tr></table></center><hr>
<!-- End Pubmates International DPOC Link Code -->
Don't forget to insert YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS and YOUR CITY, STATE/PROVINCE, COUNTRY where it is indicated in bold type above. When you are done inserting the code, save the change and reload your page. This is what it should look like:
Visiting YOUR CITY, STATE/PROVINCE, COUNTRY? E-mail us and join us for a beer! Not in my town? Don't give up! Check out Pubmates International for other drinkers around the world!


EMAIL the Curator of Pubmates International

After you have finished placing the code into your page, send an email to Pubmates International. A typical email to the Pubmates International Curator would look something like this:
