Alright, sorry for not replying to anything in... three months. Oh wow, I'm a terrible mod! :D
Huge post incoming!
I'm wondering if this still can be used to propose trials
Yes it can!

I would normally ask you for more details, but it's clear you have everything planned out. You have permission to start your trial. It's formally approved and has been added to the Court Docket list. You may create a recruitment thread on the Trials section, and after you've filled all roles, start a thread for it on the Court House.
Just a couple of things:
1) Make sure to let your trial participants know in your recruitment thread about the identity of the judge and defense and prosecuting attorneys. Let them know whether they need to use characters from the games, or they can use their own Original Characters (OCs), or they need to stick to your characters, or if they are free to choose one of the above.
2) It is reccomended that, after you've filled all roles, you PM your trial participants about their character's hidden involvement in the case. You may let them know what their characters did, what they saw, what motives their actions, any of those details. Or, of course, you can let their imagination run rampant and have them imagine all those points, but that's always a risk you're taking.
3) We usually give trials names, would it be too much of a bother if I asked you to create one for yours? It may sound silly, but it makes everything sound so much more Ace Attorney-ish around here. You can use your trial number, CR-21, or not, as you prefer, but a name is kind of a must. If you have any problems with this, you can PM me about it, and we can discuss it.
Other than that, good luck :)

I just got a crazy idea for a trial while I was trying to fall asleep last night. To be honest, I don't really expect this idea to be approved, but I figured it's worth throwing it out there.
The name of the trial is Turnabout Improv, and the gimmick is that nothing is predetermined. The available roles are those of the judge, defense attorney, prosecuting attorney, defendant, and at least four witnesses. However, each person must make everything up as they go along. This case will have no investigation phase.
In the signup thread, the first person to join must be the defendant. They will post some general information about themself and the charges they are faced with.
After the defendant has signed up, all other parts will become available. At this point, all people who are interested will PM me requesting the part they want. If they are a witness, they must also post their relationship to the defendant and the case. By doing signups through PMing, nobody will know who the culprit is, except for myself and the culprit. This means it is up to the judge to render a verdict, who may get the decision wrong.
Each participant will not know each other's role until the trial starts. Naturally, I will be PMing people with necessary information as it arises, such as the names of the witnesses the attorneys must call.
So, there's my crazy idea, which I doubt will be approved. If this cannot be posted in the Trials section, then can I post it in the General Roleplay section instead?
...You know what? The Trials section is quite dormant, and I feel liberal today. Your trial is approved. I believe it has a lot of potential, and could end up being a very interesting trial. It's also the kind of fresh new ideas the board needs, so let's see. You know the procedure: Create a recruitment thread in the Trials board, and once all roles have been filled, proceed to the Court House.
I'm pretty sure you considered this, but just in case, be aware: This idea may fuel one of the most original fan-trials ever, but it could also severely backfire, and create a bad precedent for any potential future improvised cases. In short, this is the first improv-case on C-R... but it could also be the last one. On this matter I reccomend that you make advertise your trial as much as the rules permit (your avatar, your signature, a thread in Press Conference, PMing regular (or not so much) RPers, be creative!), and, as evil as it may sound and feel, that you be as selective as possible with who you accept into the trial. I think you understand why, so I don't need to explain it.
