4/20/08: New Biographies; Site Improvements; DW6 OST

Unread postby James » Mon Apr 21, 2008 4:59 am

Greetings everyone! I’ve actually been quite busy refining Kongming’s Archives in the background to make it a little easier to use and a little easier to update. I’ve made a few improvements here and there. FAQs and Walkthroughs we feature now enjoy a fine-tuned display script so they are delivered at record speed (being implemented in areas across the site now). The URL of a FAQ we host is also much easier to look at and share with friends, now. As an example, here is <a href="http://kongming.net/faqs/dynasty-warriors-6/dynasty_warriors_6.html">Lord Yuan Shu’s Dynasty Warriors 6 FAQ/Walkthrough</a>.

Officer Entries in the <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/">Encyclopedia Project</a> have new links, making it easier for you to share biography-like officer summaries on the internet and in forums during discussions. As examples, here is <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/officers/Cao-Cao">Cao Cao</a>, <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/officers/Liu-Bei">Liu Bei</a>, and <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/officers/Sun-Quan">Sun Quan</a>.

The <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/hanzi/">Three Kingdoms Hanzi Project</a> and the <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/styles/">Style Name Project</a> both share links with the <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/">Three Kingdoms Encyclopedia</a> now. This should help to alleviate confusion while viewing similar entries. Our <a href="http://kongming.net/games/">Games Directory Home Page</a> has received a complete facelift to make it a little more intuitive. Lady Wu finally harassed me enough to make it happen. Our <a href="http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/">Three Kingdoms Encyclopedia</a>, by far the most popular section of our site, now, is going to receive a massive retuning in the near future as well. We’ll share more about that when the time comes!

We’ve added another handful of new links to our <a href="http://kongming.net/links/">Three Kingdoms Link Directory</a>. One addition of note is the <a href="http://kongming.net/links/three-kingdoms-books-and-literature/buy-books-online/">Book Purchase Directory</a>, which features purchase links and mini-reviews of some marvelous Three Kingdoms books. Your purchase through these links even takes a nip out of our hosting fees! Everyone is welcome to share their favorite links. Site owners, submit your link to us! Visit our <a href="http://kongming.net/links/submit.php">link submission page</a>.

New <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/bios/type.php#sgyy"><i>Sanguo Yanyi</i> Officer Biographies</a> have also been added: <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/caimao.php">Cai Mao (Degui)</a> and <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/shenpei.php">Shen Pei (Zhengnan)</a> by Dong Zhou; <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/shihuan.php">Shi Huan (Gongliu)</a> by Sam.

By popular request I have just added the Dynasty Warriors 6 (<i>Shin Sangoku Musou 5</i>) original soundtrack (OST) to our music downloads page. It is uploading as I type this, so start with the earliest files to avoid broken links! Odds & Ends users will have a download link in a few hours.

Oh, and please forgive us for our April Fool’s joke. While most of you have found out, now, that we play a joke every single year, there are always a handful of people who are out of the loop, so to speak, and are always caught off-guard. I’ll share more about this in a future update.

Pang Tong: So I wonder what this place is called?
Sign by road: "Place where Pang Tong gets killed"
Pang Tong: Hmmm... I have a bad feeling about this place...

Hello. I'm glad to be here to post with you all. I currently reside in the United States. Thank you for taking the time to check my intro. It's always an honor to have individuals reading my message. I only hope to share my expressions, opinions, and beliefs in the most honest and effective way in order to bring about a better understanding of the many walks of life that I feel I could reach someone with and I also hope to be able to do everything that I can to make people feel like they are heard and that we together can make more of a positive difference than we ever could apart-not only in America but around the world.
Love and Peace,
Dean
