Are all loops and rings edge loops and rings? (See "What is the difference between an edge loop and an edge ring?" here). Can they be composed of vertices or faces?

    $\begingroup$ There is edge loop and face loop and they are not the same. All of them technically consist of vertices since vertex is what holds any edge. Your question could benefit from screenshot and clear explanation $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 18 '19 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ Rings and loops are not clearly explained in the documentation, in my opinion. This lead me to have several questions about them that probably never would occur to an expert. I have found Blender too difficult to work with, so I have stopped using it, regrettably. Since this question has a zero or negative rating, I don't mind if it is deleted. I also don't understand all the complex etiquette of using StackExchange, so I give up on this question entirely. Please someone clean it up according to all the unwritten SE rules. $\endgroup$ – David Spector Jul 19 '19 at 11:09

A vertex loop would include edges so yes it would be an edge loop not a vertex loop. A vertex ring doesn't exist as it would also include the edges and faces. You can try this out yourself by selecting vertex (1) in edit mode and selecting either a ring or edge.

The comments make it clear that the answer to my question is no. I was confused by the question about edge loops and a tutorial that discussed edge loops, so I was really trying to find out which of the six combinations of {(vertex,edge,face)x(loop,ring)} were valid.

Loops are always continuous selections. The real remaining question is about rings. An edge ring is a loop consisting of parallel edges. But it doesn't seem possible to have a vertex ring or a face ring, since "parallel" is only defined for edges.

So I think the overall answer to this complicated question is: there are edge loops and face loops and edge rings. But the other three combinations are invalid--there are no vertex loops, vertex rings, or face rings.

Please, no more comments except from experts, so I don't get even more confused!
