    Hahaha, I remember I joined this site originally to get into competitive battling then ended up getting totally derailed by this project. Heck, my first post was a sprite entry. Hope to see another prosperous year from this project.

    Happy birthday!

    I'm really happy that this has got some well-deserved respect, because, even if it's evident to the people who follow it, this project REALLY has smogon's competitive spirit in mind, and we have created very unique pokémon, like the first really successful bulk upper (maybe a little too successful :P), a wall-breaking wall, an all-purpose support pokémon... We are transforming the old OU with rich and interesting to use additions, and on top of that, they are blessed with awesome art and sprites!

    CAP is awesome.

    I don't have a folder for CaP specific quotes, and I really don't feel like doing a lot of digging in hopes of finding one. I will say that CaP has plenty of entertaining moments on a weekly basis anyway and it's much more friendly and enjoyable place than SU.

    I remember a long time ago, Plus informed me that this guy named Eric the Espeon challenged me to be in this weird tournament that might involve the CMS metagame and that I had to go talk to him on CaP...so I did. I first saw it as another excuse to play more CMS matches and really beat the crap out of them in general (to be overly crude) so I became pretty active on the CaP server. In the meantime, I became a poster on the forums out of curiousity (without much postcount cause I don't like the rest of smogon a lot), became a moderator, and recruited Bass onto my team. But what it really comes down to is that I wouldn't have accomplished as much as I did if it weren't for the CaP community being exceedingly awesome to begin with, thanks CaP.

    A happy birthday also to Justinawe?

    Congratulations everyone, this project's come a long way from those few upstart threads in Stark I'd apparently missed. Looking forward to squeezing a few more quality birthdays out before we're stretched and wrinkly and a new generation of Smogontonians carry on the torch.

    Heh.. I was browsing through the old threads and I came upon some more gems.

    And, in that same topic, during a discussion/argument with Doug, some user brilliantly posted this:
    A year ago, we would not have known why this is funny.

    I didn't say this in the op, but I'm very impressed by what we've made CAP as a community. Great Sage was partially right; this could have been a fanboy clusterfuck like every other project. We started with an idea, we now have a server, a channel, and a forum where we can share them. Keep it up guys!

    Anyway:
    Code:
    Magmortified: I'll aim for CAP 7. 
    Magmortified: And focus on riding my concept in CAP 6. 
    tennisace: your concept is penismon 
    
    Silly Mag.

    I have only been in the CaP project since the very end of Fidgit, so I don't know much, but wow, a year? Just a testament to how awesome the users that come here are, not many things like this last that long (and almost none can claim they battle with their Fakemons). Kudos to all, especially DJD, and lets hope we can celebrate com Nov27 '09!

    TM30, I totally forgot about that post! That is truly one of the funniest noob posts ever made in CAP history. For those of you that didn't follow the link, you really need to read the first few sentences:

    Priceless...

    Is that flask really filled with souls? Or is a jar filled with a yellow-green liquid positioned right below the waist something else? O_o

    I love how he tried to take credit for it.

    Wow, it was the Cap's first Birthday several days ago? I never knew. This had always been, and will be, my favorite server. Congrats to everyone. And thanks to the large handful of people who has made it what it is today.

    Happy birthday, et. al.

    I have one strong memory of the CAP projects, other than almost always forgetting about them and missing the art threads: the CAP 4 art submissions I did. And my inability to read "do not do evolutions of existing Pokemon".
    And if you can't choose an idea to submit, submit them all at once as one idea.
