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.

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?

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).

While I'm one of the staff who runs the site, Abwayax is the founder and manages the technical side of the site (specifically the server, but I can do forum/wiki stuff if you like, I suggest if you do to make a thread about it to gather a consensus). Still feel free to contact me about higher site issues though; I will forward them to Abwayax if needed. :)

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3
