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 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 October.

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 may NOT use any scripts of any kind to vote.  If you do, you 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.

Okay, it's 3 in the morning and I got everything all updated and set for this month's Battle of the Islands.  I guess I probably should get some sleep.  Although I'm wide awake now.  I better get some rest, I have a long day tomorrow.  And I must be more tired than I realize since I keep making typos as I type this.  Thank goodness for the delete key. 

So good night and have fun voting!

Okay, I'm awake now.  Not many people are voting yet.  I guess you thought I wouldn't get it up so quickly this time.

Well, have fun voting while I go find some caffeine.

Duck Sauce,

I went to bed about 4:30 in the morning.  But it's okay.  I keep weird hours.  Everyone else on the team keeps more normal hours.  

Mickey,

The Pirate Flag is just a fun little addition to the Battle of the Islands for those who do not have their flag represented or those who want to be, well, piratey.  And, the Pirates refer to the Pirates of Old: Buccaneers and Privateers, not modern pirates.  Also note that the flag used is historically what many real pirates of the 16th, 17th & 18th Centuries used: Blackbeard, Henry Morgan, Captain Kidd, Francis Drake, etc., as well as the flag they always used in the movies.

I thought it's be something fun to add a little spice to the site.

It's not quite as simple as that.  There is a definate history behind Pirates, Buccaneers and Privateers.  Buccaneers are Pirates and Privateers based out of the West Indies.  Privateers are pirates who have a commission or Letter of Marque from the government giving them permission to seize or destroy vessels of another country.  Many times men who wanted to serve their country would choose to be a Privateer instead of join the Navy, because as a Privateer, he got to serve his country and possibly make a profit as well.  Some pirates were especially evil, while others were simply patriots who wanted to get rich.  Either way you would not want to run up against one.

This website has some good information about pirates:

It's pretty interesting.
