A crudely-made note exists in the game's sprite data, urging players not to post sprite sheets online until a year after the game's release, after everything normal has "been seen in context first." The note makes mention of VGFacts partner website "The Spriters Resource" specifically. This note was replaced with a different image following the January 20, 2016 update and removed entirely in later versions.
