5/15/08: Three Kingdoms Officer Encyclopedia v. 2.0

Unread postby James » Fri May 16, 2008 2:56 am

I’d like to introduce the Three Kingdoms Officer Encyclopedia Project v. 2.0! While nothing terribly new has been added in terms of content (aside from the regular updates being made through each week) the encyclopedia has been made much easier to use. Instead of displaying all search results as biographies, an idea that became excessive as content was expanded, search results are now displayed in a simple reference table (e.g. Kingdom of Wei) featuring links to full encyclopedia entries (e.g. Cao Cao). Matching officers are divided into sub-categories by ruler/kingdom and a color-jump menu provides easy access to the kingdom you wish to view. This is also handy for seeing where officers of a given kingdom came from and went.

The Three Kingdoms Encyclopedia’s home page is special in that it lists only certain popular officers in a single reference table, making it a quick download and ideal for bookmarking. Additional improvements have been made, some visible and others not (I was, for example, able to solve a caching bug that caused trouble not only in the encyclopedia but also in other areas of the site). Some fine-tuning is still required, but that will come with time. I’m just glad to have finally been able to publish these improvements. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome. Please contact us if you have something on your mind!
