Cypetron Alt Mode Optimus

Posted by:

For years I've imagined what I want a character page to be but have been limited by the capabilities of web development programs.  That is no longer the case!  This is a new style character page, for a new generation of Transofmers; debuted for Optimus Prime with Cybertronian Alternate Mode.  Incorporating all of our latest developments, you'll find the page includes:

* jump box header with links to toy sightings, reviews, package art and instructions.

* character general info, name, function, "motto" etc

* built in toy photo gallery with thumbnail links -->GONE are the days of long list of text links to other pictures!

* character bio and information provided to us directly by Cartoon Network, PR

* reasonably sized screen shots from the show, -->  note, EVERY image is a link to a larger higher rez image!  Click any image to get into "gallery" mode, then click "Large" to see the image in full size resolution.  Try it, you'll like it!

You may have noticed I've been quiet with character page development the last few months.  Now you know why!  This has been a collaborative project to build the tools we need make character pages *easier* with more information but more concise!  Notice that with all that info, the page itself isn't a mile long.  Thanks is due to Brian for helping build the behind-the-scenes site infrastructure!

Now that this first page is done, new character pages will come along quicker, easier and more complete.  What I'm trying to say is, stay tuned!  Much MORE to come!

This whole thing kicks... Its so nice having a photo gallery instead of having text with a link to the picture. Bravo!

I totally misread that, BB, and thought you said "This whole thing sucks..." lol

Great job, bros. Very nice. I like the gallery, it really let's you see the figure! Awesome!

Thanks guys. I appreciate the kind words. It has been quite the collaboration and development in process. We've had reviews/sightings for ages and finally created a quick/easy to get to them from the character page via debuting the "jumpbox" a few months later we developed the ability to produce photo galleries, and now finally we've brought it all together. This system has many implications. One of thme is that it makes producing character pages easier and less time consuming THUS I should be able to produce more of them in less time, another benefit.

There is one more implication and benefit. That has to do with my system of organization for show screen captures. >> As you can tell, I'm excited because it makes image organization easier, less time consuming and better... What am I talking about exactly? Ah HA, my next update is coming up soon!

The gallery is nice, but the Jumpbox is something I thought I have been seeing for quite some time now...

As for information-wise, it is better than other pages,because to be honest, some I hardly have to scroll to get all of the info(Most BM stuff).

Good improvement.

You have, but not on "completed" pages. In the past they have mostly been on incomplete, "work in progress" pages.

>>As for information-wise, it is better than other pages,because to be honest, some I hardly have to scroll to get all of the info(Most BM stuff).

I completely agree. Over the years, it has been my goal to try to get as much of everything relating to a certain Transformers character on a given page. That is, my philosophy was MORE = BETTER. But I started to feel like information overload. Plus it was VERY labor intensive and time consuming to make a page. Plus a hundred links to a hundred other show pictures is just not the best way to organize it...

Like I said, the changes may not seem like a ton on the surface, but it represents a paradigm shift, for what I want a character page to be and how I make the pages...

>> Good improvement.

Thank you. I'm really glad you like it.
