    As we venture into new territory with CAP Updates, the time has come to select three people who will lead these updates, one for each generation of CAP creations. After some discussion among staff, after this poll we will select six Update Leaders to work with this team.

    Here is the list of self-nominated candidates (in the order they submitted their candidacy):

    Deck Knight
    Darkslay
    cbrevan
    jas61292
    sparktrain

    The candidacy announcements are all found within this thread:


    Please review all the information in that thread in order to adequately inform your decision. Note that many of the applicants this time around prefer to lead specific sections of the process!


    Here's how to vote:
    • All CAP community members are allowed to vote. This means that if you have a registered Smogon account, you can vote.
    • Please post the candidate names ranked in order of preference. Like so:

      It is highly encouraged that the voter ranks as many candidates as possible.
    • Please post only your votes in this thread. Do not respond to other posts, or your posts will be moderated and you warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may still do so, but don't try to incite a discussion. Keep discussion to #cap.
    • If you do not complete a full ranked ballot, as prescribed here, your ballot will be deleted. So, please take the time to evaluate all the candidates and compose a proper ranked ballot.
    • This poll will be run with PBV voting (a form of IRV which re-runs the counting, each time removing the previously top-ranked candidate), the details of which are outlined here.

    Asking for votes for your submission or for the submissions of others is not allowed. Anyone found to have done so risks punishment at the moderation team's discretion. If you find that someone has broken this rule, please contact the CAP moderation team with your evidence and no one else. Mini-moderation of this rule is also considered a serious offense and can be punished.

    This thread will be open for 48 hours.

    Good luck to all candidates!

    It's unfair having to rank everyone...because all the candidates are awesome!

    I prefer people who are actually chill enough to want change, and are willing to make it happen.

    All five are great candidates but jas doesn't like the prospect of move removals and neither do I. He's the only two time TL in CAP history and I fully trust him to be a great GL. I don't know everyone's stance regarding move removals, but that's clearly a huge topic of concern for me. cbrevan and spark, while less committed than jas, don't seem to fully like the idea of removals either.

    Not an easy group of people to rank. I considered various factors, most notably current metagame involvement and general philosophy toward the revision process.

    Same thing drakon said I'd rather have people who are cool with change.

    Preference for a mix, jas for his positions about CAP that generally match mine well, sparktrain for his involvement, and cbrevan for some fresh blood to round it out.

    If I could rank everyone as first I would; all four of them are great people.

    Various reasons shaped this vote, but ultimately I don't think we can go wrong with anyone here.
