Where lists become art
Time to get this website back off the ground a little again. I've made some large updates in the album and songs lists, I've updated and expanded the film, series and games lists, and of course the yearly lists have also been updated and a new page for 2009 albums, songs and films has been created. Beyond that I've created a new page titled Features, which will feature some special articles that are not reviews. I have also begun to post reviews again, but I will only be posting them very irregularly rather than one every two or three days like I did before. As always, enjoy!
I've added a Sphider searchbox to the website, which should allow you to search the entire website. Only the most recent updates might not show up immediately because I have to update the databases once every so often. I have also expanded the films list to 150 films.
I have made all tables sortable by clicking one of the headers. You can also sort these tables on more than one variable by shift-clicking the headers.
I have also divided the music and film sections into different pages, as the page was becoming a little large. The header of the menu still leads to the complete page, but the subheaders lead to smaller pages with only the specified list. The drop-down menu should work in every browser, but may not work perfectly in Internet Explorer. This will be fixed soon, but it's as good a time as any to switch to a proper browser like Firefox or Opera.Also, the album and songs lists have been expanded to 250 and 500, respectively, and I have added lists of greatest directors and actors.
I have added sections for end-of-year lists and recent additions. The end-of-year section will be updated only once a year, but the recent additions page almost every day! These recent additions will more often than not include a short review of the film, album or game. Enjoy!
The most recent addition to Neoptolemos.com is not just the longer album and songs lists, or the countless small changes, but also the inclusion of the Neoptolemos Rating©. For further information on the ratings, check the FAQ. Enjoy!Practical note: Firefox is still the recommended browser, but the website has also been optimalized for Opera and Internet Explorer.
What drives mankind, and especially men, to making lists? Is it a compulsive need to be able to rank items? Are we too forgetful to just remember what our favorite film is? And why do we share these lists with everyone? I don't have the answers, but what I do know is that I love making lists. And I love sharing them, which is why I've created this website. Enjoy!
