Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer (CAP V. 3.0 READ THE OP!)

Hello! I'm one of those who submitted a design for CAP 29. It's my first try submitting art for a CAP project. I thought that we wouldn't have that much time to make changes and think about our ideas, neither I knew it is common that artists change their designs after decisive movepool decisions (although it's the most logical way to do this)... So I submitted my design and called it Final Submission instead of WIP after a few hours.

My question is, is there any chance I can change it back to "WIP state", so I can adapt it to important movepool choices? Or must I avoid anymore confusion and let it be as it is right now?

Edit: DougJustDoug thank you, and sorry for any possible inconvenience.

The answer that was posted by Slapperfish is wrong, and it will be deleted soon, so people don't get misinformation.

If you read the Art OP rules, there is a clearly marked section titled "Final Submission Post". In that section, it states:
Art OP Rules said:
Only make one (1) final submission post. Artists are welcome to work on multiple designs and get feedback from the community, but only one design can be submitted for final consideration. If you wish to alter any aspect of your final submission, then edit your post. Do not make a new one, even if you delete your original post. Any deleting and re-posting will be treated as bumping and is subject to moderation.
That has been the rule forever in CAP. You don't get to make multiple Final Submission posts for any reason. You can change your design all you want up until the deadline. But once you declare your submission as "Final", you don't get to keep bumping your art in the thread, whether the design is changed or not.

Again, to be totally clear -- you can change your design, but you must edit it into your original Final Submission post and you cannot post any more WIPs or Final Submissions in new posts for the duration of the thread.
 
If Zamazenta-Crowned is unbanned from OU, will it be unbanned from CAP as well?
Yes, it will be unbanned if OU decides to unban, but until then it is not officially unbanned. This is basically saying that we are not running our own suspect test simultaneously, and it is not legal in CAP now (it being legal on the Showdown ladder/format is a bug).
In the future, questions about the CAP Metagame should go in this thread instead.

"However, we have heard the groans of movepool creators, as Discharge is not a TM/TR that is easy to add to a movepool."

Would someone please explain to me what this means?

Do movepools and other aspects of a CAP depend on what it would be like if it was actually in the current main game??

If this is true, then my mind is kind of blown lol cuz I had no idea the CAP process took this into account

edit: oh doh yeah I'm a dummy often sorry. Thanks Da Pizza Man

No they don't.

Birkal was just saying that some movepool creators were complaining about how Discharge was really annoying to be forced to include due to how awkwardly it fit into most people's Level-Up Movepools (And there is no other spot it could go due to Chromera being unable to breed and Discharge not being a TM/TR).
 
Hi there! I was reading the CAP rules thread and noticed an emphasis on not having alternate accounts. Has someone acutally done that before to game the system? And how do you guys figure out when something like that happens?
I'm not sure how mods actually do it but I'm pretty sure that they can check the IP addresses of the people who post and can verify if someone is cheating. As for if it has been done before, I can assure you it has, as a well known user called slapperfish did this to an art submission if I remember correctly, and proceeded to get banned from posting in the forums. The guy Proceeded to make a quitpost where he tried to take another guy by making it seem like it was his alt account. It's a shame because I genuinely liked his art but then he decided to be an asshole, which shows how big the consequences of using alternate accounts can be.
