    When talking about anything, you first have to define the rules. Without a guiding direction, we might as well be speaking different languages. The people who speak English and the people who speak Tagalog have to come together and decide what language to speak in. If the English speakers win, the Tagalog speakers have to live with that. We have to define "right" and "wrong" so that we're not just saying random stuff with no meaning.

    CAP is the same way. Without a defining concept, what are we doing? Random popular whim is exactly the right way to get what nobody wants. That is why we must make a stand, right here, right now. We must define our first, all-encompassing rule, which will shape everything we do with this CAP project. In essence, we are voting on the "language" that the project will use. Choose carefully.

    This poll operates on instant-runoff voting. This means that order matters in your votes, but you may vote for any number of choices that you like. A typical vote might look like this:

    Note that any posts that do not contain a vote will be moderated and the poster warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may do so, but please don't try to incite a discussion here. Keep discussion to the IRC channel, #cap.

    IMPORTANT: When voting, use only the name of the author! The list of possible votes include:

    Rising_Dusk
    capefeather
    SubwayJ
    toshimelonhead
    Birkal
    phoopes
    Theorymon

    This poll will be open for 24 hours. The concept submissions are quoted below in order of submission.
