    I think this should be the LC checkmark.
    Anyone disagree?

    I may be out of the loop here, but what does LC stand for? I haven't played any 5th gen OU yet, is Lucario being suspect tested?

    To be blunt, nobody takes LC seriously except for people who try and be "trendy". I don't even see why the fuck there is a checkmark in the first place tbh for a metagame that probably has 10 players all up who all ladder constantly against each other....sorry to be so confrontational but I'm just saying what many users are thinking :pimp:

    I wanted to make them red or something else, but Phil insisted that we use the pink one because he felt it was more "subdued". ;_;

    It is actually primarily for publicity, meaning to attract a specific type of user to LC or at least make them like us.

    Not even that flashy pink checkmark could get me to play lc. I didn't even know there was a suspect test going on. Whoever made the checkmark pink should get a special badge just for giving lc players the middle finger like this.
    I'm pretty sure your avatar does a good enough job of that on its own.

    why do we have checkmarks to begin with? they're the ugliest things you can find on smogon without looking in the photo album. how about just getting rid of em and making people link to their posts for suspect badge?
