HOW TO VOTE
===========

You now have 2 ways to vote (I would prefer it if you chose the first
one) :

First to vote, all you have to do is to return the rating ballot
after you have placed your rating in the empty space preceding the name
of the game you have chosen and deleting the others ( YOU MUST AT LEAST
LEAVE A SPACE BETWEEN THE COMMAND AND YOUR RATING ). Please make your vote
a whole number ranging from 1 to 5 (NO 0's) if you don't your vote will
not be included in the list ! A typical vote will look like this:

==========================================================================
%scdvot 1 -> Black Hole Assault
%scdvot 1 -> Chuck Rock
%scdvot 3 -> Sol-Feace
==========================================================================

List of all the acceptable commands :

- %GENVOT <vote> -> <Name_of_Game>

This command is to place a vote for the Sega Genesis game called
<Name_of_Game>. If <vote> is 9, your vote will not be counted BUT this
will enable you to modify the database afterwards.

- %NESVOT <vote> -> <Name_of_Game>

This command is to place a vote for the Super Nintendo game called
<Name_of_Game>. If <vote> is 9, your vote will not be counted BUT this

This command is to place a vote for a Sega Genesis game not already in the

BUT this will enable you to add that game and modify the database
afterwards.

- %NESADD <vote> -> <Name_of_Game>

This command is to place a vote a Super Nintendo game not already in the
list called <Name_of_Game>. If <vote> is 9, your vote will not be counted
BUT this will enable you to add that game and modify the database
afterwards.

- %SCDADD <vote> -> <Name_of_Game>

This command is to place a vote for a Sega CD game not already in the list
called <Name_of_Game>. If <vote> is 9, your vote will not be counted
BUT this will enable you to add that game and modify the database
afterwards.

The next functions can ONLY be used after a %???VOT or a %???ADD :

- %DESC <description_of_Game>

This command will enable you to put a description (see the GAME
DESCRIPTION section) for the game previously rated.

- %YEAR <Year_of_Release>

This command will enable you to add the year of release to the database
for the game previously rated.

- %COMP <companie>

This command will enable you to add the company to the database for the

take an average player to finish the game previously rated.


Or :


Simply E-mail me (paien00@dmi.usherb.ca) with your votes and be sure
to include the word 'SEGA CD' so that I know where to put your votes. You
can also vote for games that are not on this list and they will be added.
Please rate the game out of 5 stars (WHOLE stars only, no fraction) or it
will not include it in the list. Also include the number of hours it
would take an average player to beat or finish the game. If you agree
with the previously rated hours, you needn't bother. A typical vote will
look like these:

Name of Game Vote Hours
==========================================================================
Black Hole Assault *
Chuck Rock 1 3
Sol-Feace One #


If there are any missing information, or if you are voting for a game
not already listed, please include the number of simultaneous players as
well as one of the descriptions found in the previous glossary. If you
can, the company name and the year it was originally released.
Like this:

Name of Game Players Vote Hours Description Year Company
==========================================================================
Prince of Persia 1 **** 60 Adventure 1991 Whatever



Please vote for ALL the games you have played, not just the ones you
liked. People want to know which ones are really crappy. Also if you have
a suggestion or a comment about the ratings, send it to me - as you can
see I've been more than willing to make changes - but I make no promises
that everyone's ideas and changes will be made. I apologize to anyone
who's votes I lose or mess up and for any mistakes that I make in the
future. WARNING - you might find mistakes. You will not hurt my feelings
if you write me to bring any mistake that I made to my attention.

And for those of you who participated -
Thank You

Nick
