Using The Hooked Metapod in greetings
« on: December 20, 2007, 10:58:15 pm »
Recently I'm seeing threads devolve into border-level flamewars over the use of "The Hooked Metapod". I'll say this once:

The Hooked Metapod is GCL's mascot. No one "owns" or "copyrights" phrases related to the Metapod. If I see anyone throwing a fit because of "catchphrase theft" I WILL increase your meter.

Thank you.

I guess that ends that then. Good, it was getting out of hand (I did it to actually).

Hey Abwayax, increase your meter? I'm new, so can you explain before I do something stupid?





P.S. (Hooked Metapod? Lol love the Mascot! Who Found it?)

When wild MissingNo appeared, I jumped straight up,
causing my GameBoy to go one way, and the contents of my Big Gulp to take a beeline for my lap.

As far as I know, it was some sort of glitch which allowed you to fish for a metapod, and became the GCL's mascot.

By the way, I know this is your first day, but try not to bump a topic this old, even though you had a valid question. Next time see if you can use search to find something about it. :)

It's something that ACE91 found while messing with cheat device codes.

What does it mean to increase someone's meter?
I like shorts, they're comfy and easy to wear!

Everybody has a warning meter although it is rarely used. It can be raised in % points up to 100% and I think if it's 100% you can get banned (although it's possible to ban people without the meter e.g. bots).
Hello. I actually identify as gender questioning, but nowadays feel more firmly that I identify as female. My sex is male but I like to express myself as female.  She/her pronouns, please.


Thank you Myri for my avatar! Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Beyond all philosophies are the things that go best for you; what makes you feel content. It's important to always follow your heart, so unless you feel perfectly happy about it don't just follow something because it is popular, fits a style or is conventional. Sometimes you may reach a point you're not sure who you are, but as things settle I'm convinced things do work out in time.
