    This is the result of the decisions made in this thread.

    CAP Leadership:

    Full Moderators:
    Deck Knight
    SevenDeadlySins
    Alchemator

    If you have questions about the game at large or specific issues, come to us. We do have disciplinary powers and will resolve any disputes that cannot be resolved through consensus of two battlers or ref consultation.

    Project Moderators:

    You may have noticed the massive influx of Moderators for the forum. In the previous post I asked for all members of those positions to have project mods so they could maintain the game information. Project Mods are Moderators whose names are not bolded. They can edit or delete any post in the forum, but otherwise have no power over other users.

    Project Moderators have other duties as outlined:

    RP Approval Committee

    This committee will require a unanimous vote to approve an RP, and will consist of the following 3 members:

    Zarator
    Alchemator
    Engineer Pikachu

    Duties for the RP Committee will be to prove potential RPers on how their RP will flow (how will a battler progress through their RP), what the compensation will be, and to make suggestions to keep the compensation level of all RPs roughly equal. They will also be empowered to approve refs for an RP with the consent of an RP owner if that RP is being overwhelmed. Finally, they will ensure the smooth transition of any RPs abandoned by their initial owner.

    Project Mods are useful here for tweaking entries and providing feedback, as well as updating the main post in the thread with all of the links for Role Playing experiences. Routine functions like data editing do not need approval from the other members of the committee.

    Gym League Advisory Committee:

    This Committee will be charge with making decisions for candidates for each Gym and seeking out new Gym Leaders if those gym leaders cannot maintain records in accordance with the rules for Gym Leaders. If two or more persons wish to form a Gym together, then they must be much more strict in making both leaders adhere both to win records and activity. The committee will consist of the following members:

    Kaxtar
    Athenodoros
    MK_Ultra

    Since there are requirements to keep a Gym with a certain WLT record, there may be some ebb and flow in who has the gym positions and again, the main thread for Gyms will need to be updated regularly.

    Ref Assistance and General Maintenance:

    Finally, there will be four more promotions to help upkeep on the forum and with reffing concerns in general. They will monitor the Registration Tower, Data Audit Thread, and Ref Training Grounds for new posts and maintain these lists.

    Korski
    Son_of_Shadoo
    Leethoof
    IceBug

    You are the most important contributors on a daily basis, because you make sure all of our data is updated, linked properly, and new rules and other changes are editted into the body of these threads. If you need assistance on where to place a particular new piece of information, please contact me. Otherwise if you wish to expend efforts making the data cleaner/easier to understand/easier to read, feel free to do so.

    To Do List:

    Routine maintenance:

    While these functions primarily fall to Ref Assistance and General Maintenance, anyone with the ability to update these lists should do so as soon as they see the listing is incomplete or they notice a broken link.

    Make sure all registered players are linked to in the Registration Tower.

    Continually check the Data Audit Thread for new posts pointing out inconsistencies in energy costs or other commentary.

    Make sure the Battle Tower thread is updated with new substitution rules and contains all data needed for successfully seeking and accepting a match.

    Make sure the Referee Training Grounds have an updated list of all current refs in the Original Post.

    There may be special projects I will assign out from time to time, right now I just want to cover my bases. If I've missed anything, feel free to inform me or edit it into the OP.

    I'm assuming those with Ref Assistance/Maintenance can't actually approve new posts in Registration Tower, they just update the OP.

    It would actually be handy if they had said power: the Registration Tower often gets a bit forgotten about by the approvers, since 99% of claiming goes on in the prizes thread. Some extra hands being specialised for the Registration Tower would be quite good I think.

    I agree and AC would be nice, as long as it's made sure that we're actually capable - a simple test or something.

    I really think we should update the OP in the Registration Thread. It still refers to UC as Ref Tokens and refers to CC as Business Tokens. Simple fix, but it makes a lot of sense.

    I think this thread could do well as a small objective changes or requests for modding thread. Things like asking for prefixes to be changed or errors in the DAT. Thoughts?

    Edit: derp, forgot the DAT itself. Maybe just the DAT then.

    Well I'm pretty sure the DAT is supposed to be used for posting errors that need to be fixed, just that not many people bother anymore since they're not often fixed :/ I wouldn't mind seeing all the mod/projmod requests going into a single thread though.

    I would be willing to update the list of users in the Registration Tower, as it appears it has been forgotten. How could I help with that?

    I didn't realise that hadn't been done, and I'll be taking care of it now. That's one of my jobs after all.

    EDIT: Never mind, Korski did it.

    Now that Necturna is finished, I believe it is time to incorporate it into ASB.How still that be done? (I'm willing to help in almost any way possible.)

    Necturna is done, but there are still a few things that need to be ironed out—pre-evolutions, for one. As these might just affect Necturna in ASB, it cannot be released yet in this state. When it is, I suppose Deck will post it.

    What I mean is that maybe a thread should be put up to decide the things you were talking about, or will that be decided in the CAP forums themselves.

    Those are decided as part of the actual CAP process, not by us. If you want to help, go over there and vote!

    Just to respond to this:

    All CAP Pokemon are released at the completion of playtesting for that CAP. Incidentally this also gives them time to go through pre-vo polls and get everything wrapped up neatly.

    Well I went on over to the CAP forum and they decided Necturna's getting one prevo.
