Guest Book  provision is fairly self explanatory and works well with the same HTML listed with the above message boards .
(each will work for you with regards to search engine standings)

Picture Story Post

On a monthly rotation basis, according to membership popularity (polling), Pieces will be selected to allow members a venue for their creative writing pertaining to the given Piece. This includes poetry as well as short stories. There are currently a number of pages in the public level with such literary items posted for a better understanding of this function.

The Pieces selected for the working public level example is... Childish Visions

Random Button & Site Rings

Randomly Button selects pages from the cue and makes for easy community surfing. With in the cue are TBRG's pages and those whom enlist to the site ring. We would request that you place (cut&paste) this button on your page should you become part of  TBRG site ring, in order to allow fellow surfers to easily continue to the next page in the cue.
Should a Gallery surfer find themselves on a page without a random button they should click their browsers back button or the link.

By listing your home pages in the site ring, you become fully integrated in TBRG community. Your listing is cued within the random button function and your pages also become fully networked with all whom participate with the ring. The more the merrier and the more traffic all receive to their home pages.
(the amount of traffic a given page receives is another way that search engines sets listing priorities)

The five lines of html given below will add the "random" button with a TBRG link only to your page instead of the complete sitering format if you would prefer when joining the ring. Use it along with an underscored direct link to as shown above instead of the entire ring code as provided and you will still be accepted into the ring.
(note: you may need to manually type this onto your web page using word pad or note pad, cut and paste will not always do the job.)

Therefore, the more pages you are able to set your URL to, the higher up on a search list you will appear.
