Cast a Vote
You can use this form to vote for your favorite ironclad naval rules. Vote as often as you like - however, only one vote is allowed per email account, so your latest vote will override all previous votes cast. Vote at least yearly, since all votes older than two years will be deleted from the database. The voting results are updated on at least a weekly basis.
Most of the questions below are not marked "required." This means that you don't have to answer them, but we hope that you will...as they allow us to discover such interesting facts as "most popular ruleset in the UK" or "most popular for club play." The form should be self-explanatory, but here are some instructions for those who might need them...
|Your Name||Not required, but makes it easier for you to find your battle report on the results pages (which is how you know your vote was processed).|
|Your Email Address|
|Required. This is the method we use to prevent people from voting too often. We won't use your vote if you don't give us an email address. If you give us an email address which turns out to be bogus (i.e., we can't reply to confirm your vote), we'll remove your vote from the system. Email addresses collected will be kept confidential, and will not be revealed or sold to any third parties.|
|Your Nation||The current list is made up of countries from which we've previously had hits at the website. If your nation isn't listed, please write it in.|
|Your State or Province||We list states or provinces for Australia, Canada, and the USA. If your state or province is not listed, write it in. If you do not have a state or province, ignore this field. For Great Britain, please select England, Scotland or Wales.|
|Your County||Or the equivalent unit in your country. We list counties for England. Elsewhere, write-in the county.|
|Your City||The city or town where you live. (All of this location information is optional, but providing it allows you to help us reveal the favorite rules right down to your local county or town - and makes it easier to see the effects of your individual vote.)|
|Favorite Ruleset||Pick one only. You can't split your vote.|
|Write-In Vote||Use this only if your favorite is not listed above. Only "write in" your favorite ironclad rules - this is not the place to tell us about your favorite Renaissance rules. If you entered a vote and provide a write-in, the write-in vote will be ignored. If you provide neither a vote nor a write-in, your entry also will be ignored.|
|Which Rules Do You Regularly Play?||Check all that apply.|
|Which Rules Have You Played At Least Once?||Be honest, please - we mean played, not "read once" or "watched a game once" or "own a copy" or "I've heard about it" :-)|
|Your Usual Game Setting?||Pick the one most common to you.|
|Years of Ironclad Gaming Experience?||How many years has it been since you played your first ironclad engagement?|
|What Size Models Do You Commonly Use|
For Ironclad Naval Gaming?
|We only want to know what you use for this category - not what you use for your other gaming. Check all that apply.|
|Which Navies Do You Field?||One selection per navy you own or use, please. For example, don't check "Austrian" just because your happen to own one ship - only check this if you have something you consider to be a ready-to-play Austrian naval force.|
|Tell Us About Your Last Ironclads Game||Required. This field allows us to flush out unqualified voters, such as someone who just stumbled onto the website and has never seen a mini in his life. Also, you can confirm that your vote was processed by seeing your battle report posted in the "Recent Battle Reports" areas. Feel free to add editorial comments about various rulesets, but these must come with a battle report, not instead of it.|
|Comments or Suggestions?||Comments meant for the Editor, such as ideas for new questions, rules to add to the list, and so forth.|
