Conventions

With each animated work here, I include one or more of the following entities:

  • Icon fields:
    • Sub-Type Icon (with Details Link): This icon identifies the animation sub-type; by clicking on it, you can see all the detailed info that I have gathered for the work within a lightbox-style overlay on the page.
      • Fully animated
      • Partially animated
      • Secondary animation (i.e., no significant character animation)
    • Video Icon (with Video Link): This icon identifies that a video reference link is provided; by clicking on it (i.e., ), you will see the video within a lightbox-style overlay on the page. For larger works, the video (typically from YouTube) is chosen to help you better appreciate an unfamiliar series/movie. For shorter works, the full video normally will be available (typically from the author page on Vimeo); to view it in its highest quality/size and/or to comment on it, click the source site's link (button for Vimeo, YouTube etc.).
    • Amazon Icon (with Amazon Link): This icon identifies that a link to the applicable release on Amazon.com is provided; by clicking on it (i.e., ), you are taken to the applicable release on Amazon.com.
    • Ranking Icon (with Review Link): This icon identifies my ranking of a work (if ranked); by hovering over it, you can see the detailed review. The last four informational icons (no link) explain when a ranking is not provided.
      • Favorite
      • Good
      • Good Visuals (certain Weak shorts)
      • Weak
      • Seen but excluded from rankings
      • Seen but ranking not available

    • Image: This is a 400x300 (4:3) image that I collected/edited to best represent the spirit of the work. I display a 120x90 thumbnail version for page loading performance, and allow the user to bring up the larger version when clicking on the thumbnail.
  • Text fields:
