Proposal to promote Caption the Screenshots on PE2K

Recently, I had a meeting with the Pokemon Elite 2000 editors after the election of new editors (I am one of the new editors). One of the ideas brought up is to promote the Pokemon fandom in a similar fashion as Equestria Daily (HKim brought this up because he's a Pony fan), in which instead of the segregation among fansites having their own brand of content and not sharing it, we want to promote the best found among the fans.
One of the cool things I thought on Bulbagarden is Caption the Screenshots from the anime section. I consider Caption the Screenshots is the best thread in the anime section, because the amount of funny stuff that stems from it is staggering (the amount of likes is likewise astounding, reaching a 5-digit figure). Here's my proposal: I am thinking of posting some of the content weekly from that treasure trove on Pokemon Elite 2000 (five captions per week), and I would like to ask you all if this is OK with you or not.
If I do get the permission to do this from you, here are some stuff I would do:
- Credit the users who proposed the screenshot, in the username found on Bulbagarden.
- Take at least one screenshot from the recently-aired English episode, not Japanese, because some might not have watched it yet, and I don't want to spoil some stuff to them.
- Any caption containing swear words will not be considered. If it can be omitted without spoiling the joke, it will be omitted.
- Running gag-based jokes will not be considered (so no Card Games on Motorcycles and "I know what you did last night" jokes).
That's it for my proposal for a weekly Caption the Screenshots news. If you have suggestions of questions, feel free to point them out.
Thanks for reading.
(I also have a few more things on the forums I would like to promote here on that site, but preferably, I would ask the users who posted the material if it's OK to promote their work.)
