Quote from: Coenus Scaldingus on 01 March 2021, 09:46:12 PMOption 1.5 for me: simply don't vote for any competitions I'm personally involved in! No ethical dilemma of whether or not it's subjectively or objectively or ethically the correct decision to vote/not vote for particular entries; just the enjoyment of purely admiring all the entries.Which is yet another reason to try and compete in more categories next time, as while I like voting, deciding is far too difficult.

Quote from: Big Insect on 02 March 2021, 10:05:41 AM2 votes is better than none and participation is better (IMHO) than not I am lobbying Leon to retain this and to extend the categories - the pre-C20th single base infantry category was very hard - I'd be asking for a split between pre & post fire arms myself (with some allowances around the cross-over maybe.
Quote from: Steve J on 02 March 2021, 11:00:48 AMThe 20thC was given its own category as it could never compete against the colourful uniforms and lines of troops of earlier periods. Splitting pre-20thC into various periods has its merits, but drawing the line of each would be difficult, unless you used the Pendraken Catalogue as a basis.
Quote from: mmcv on 02 March 2021, 10:29:31 AMIndeed, it's interesting that 20th century foot has it's own category, while the pre 20th century category is huge and I'm having a hard time making choices from so much excellence! The forum resources are split as Ancients to Renaissance (3000BC - 1680), Resources - Firelocks to Maxims (1680 - 1900), Resources - 20th Century. Which is maybe a neat break up, though I'd be in favour of Ancient/Medieval, Renaissance/Early Modern (1500-1788), Long 19th Century (1789 until just before WW1), 20th Century (WW1 and beyond)This would then reflect the distribution of ranges across the Pendraken estate, given there's a large number of Renaissance/Early Modern ranges, then all the 18thC, Colonial, etc it seems sensible to have it on it's own rather than split between ancient and modern.
