ATTENTION:

Please limit yourself to ONE VOTE PER SECOND, especially those on high speed connections.  The database server cannot handle the amount of simultaneous votes that its currently getting, which is slowing down the entire website.

And please consider one second to be the equivalent of saying "one one thousand" which takes about 1 second to say.

Doing this will help keep the server fast and speedy.  If not, I may have to temporarily disable the battle until we figure out a way to limit how fast people can vote.

Thank you.

Battle of the Islands!

A little friendly competition to see who can vote their flag to the top!

The rules are simple. Every month we will create a new poll in which you can vote for which flag you want to appear on top. You can vote as often as you want using the form above and at the end of the month, we will declare a winner. The winning flag will fly high above everyone else's for one month, during which time, people will vote for the following month.

The results of this poll will determine who's flag will fly high on the Battle of the Flags page for the month of February.

Don't forget to "vote early and vote often!" And tell your friends so they can vote too!

And don't forget, you CAN vote as often as you want!  Show your spirit, vote for your country many many times!

Note:  You MUST be logged in and use the form above to vote.  Voting or inflating the number of votes by any other method is not allowed.  You may NOT use any scripts of any kind to vote.  Anyone caught using a script will be temporarily banned.  Repeated abuses will result in a permanent ban. 

You must be logged in to vote!

Due to abuse by a few people using scripts that overloaded or server, we will now require that you register for a free account on CaribbeanChoice.com to vote. 

Also note that your vote will NOT be counted if you use the "refresh" or "reload" button on your web browser (even though it says it was counted).

You would have to have a high speed connection (T1 or better), a very fast computer (in Mhz, RAM and Video RAM), and have your web browser cache the pages so they load faster on your computer (most browsers do this automatically).  People on dial-up or slow connection or older computers can't vote as fast because it takes longer for the page to load.

I'm thinking of additional ways to "vote."  For example, you would be able to earn points for certain activites on CaribbeanChoice.com, like making purchases, visiting certain pages while logged in, visiting the website daily while logged in, posting in the forum, adding recipes or links to the directory, etc.  You would then pick what country you want your "votes" to go toward.

I think something like that would even it about a bit, plus give people incentives to do other things on the site in addition to voting in the battle.
