IS it bad for the an azodin to be in the cocked position over a long period of time when not in use?

It may weaken the main spring, so it would be best to leave it uncocked. Not sure why you would want it cocked all the time anyway...

It's been in my room cocked for about a month an was wondering if any harm could have come from doing that

It'll more than likely be ok. Any paintball gun with a top cocking bolt like Azodins, and Spyders will be able to take the stress of being cocked for a while. The springs on them are fairly strong. As long as they aren't kept that way for a few months then it should be fine. If for some reason the spring has compressed and you notice that it doesn't shoot as well as it used to, then you can always get an aftermarket spring kit for a spyder. I hear of people swapping out for those springs anyway, so you can get higher than 300fps. Most paintball fields will limit that though to around 290-295 so there isn't much of a point unless you're playing in the woods with someone or you want to ability to raise it up while not playing in a sanctioned field.
