    Sorry for ending this early (...again), things keep getting in the way. Counting votes now.

    Monotype? Damn it, banned. Offstat? Darn.

    I'll go with Bug Catcher Cup unless we can vote for the former two. (In which case I vote for Monotype, or Offstat if that one still isn't allowed.)

    Actually, I think I'll go easy on Monotype this time. OMotM would be a great way to introduce the new ladder. Then again, using OMotM to add new permanent ladders is kind of against the original idea... Whatever :P

    If something is popular enough to warrant permanent addition, that's a great thing, in my opinion.

    I made the format already, so I'm nominating Offstat. It's a bit self masturbatory to nominate Joimmons myself, but I'm improving it :P

    Congrats for the perm ladder status, PureQuestion!

    Arcticblast edit: god people when i say "read posts 1 and X" I mean read those posts q.q although Qwilphish nominated PU and I haven't added it to the list yet because I'm basically trying to get permission...

    Actually, Joim implemented OffStat and Suicide Cup on his server, so those two are up for grabs!

    GSC modern. It is easy to learn, and while it is somewhat similar to BW2 OU, it is different enough to the point the similarities make it easier to learn, but still different tot play. Venusaur might need to be banned before though... I will talk to kakuna.
