Talk:Glitch

From Pikipedia

I propose we remove all glitches that have their own articles, give articles to the rest that should, link to category:glitches as a list of major glitches, and move this to 'minor glitches'. GP

Agreed. I might start on this in an hour or so; no guarantees, though.--Prezintenden
I agree as well. Vol (Talk)
Oh, I agreed too when you wrote it, but never mentioned it. {EspyoT} 10:18, 30 October 2010 (EDT)
I also agree. --FREAK ~GameGameFreak.PNGFreak~ OUT!
*Waits for Prez to do it* GP

OK, just a question: which are the major ones? Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png

Those as defined in Pikipedia:Policies and guidelines#Glitch articles. GP

Mm, I talked to Prez about glitches in other articles (on enemy pages, for example). I think we should still have this page (still as 'minor glitches'), since it and category:glitches serves as a good repository, a way for people looking for glitches to find them easily. Otherwise, it'd be hard to get at them, spread out all over the wiki. However, it's also good to have them on the pages of the things they're about, so everything about them is in one place.

It seems, then, that to avoid content duplication, that the best solution is to have one set link to the other - I vote have the full text here, and refer to individual sections on this page (or articles in cat:glitches), perhaps with short summaries. It's a bit strange, yes, but I can't see a better solution. Thoughts? GP

Would a "List of Glitches" section with links work? Vol (Talk)
Do you mean on this page, or on each other article with associated glitches? If the former, it might work, as long as the links, since they'll be to sections within pages, can be kept working; if the latter, it's a bit odd if there's only one glitch. GP
So I'm understanding this this way: we write everything on this page, and simply link to the section for the glitch we would actually have written into the related article. It would seem nice to just have everything on one page, period, but that would end in one gigantic page with endless sections.
Probably. I'm actually not quite sure how many pure glitch articles we have. Actually, maybe there are some less heavily-glitchy glitches (i.e. the pikmin stuck-under-bridge glitch) that we don't really have to link to here and could just merge to the Bridge article.
Ah, thinking about it, it seems too weird. I vote for what Green called 'former'.--Prezintenden
Still, I wasn't thinking of not having any glitches with their own articles: some are involved enough that they should. GP
I meant on this page. Vol (Talk)

Hi! I lost half of my Pikmin in Pikmin 1 and I dont know why... is that a glitch? Berrychan

You/Player[edit]

Hey guys, I'm anonymous user here and a big fan of the Pikmin series. I'd love to help out and edit, and I fixed up this page to get rid of the "you/the player" problem that was reported. Just to let you know, I have a lot of time, but I can only be here on weekends, since I'm not allowed on the computer on week days (Asian parents, BTW). 02:06, 16 December 2012 (EST)

Thanks for the help. Although there are a few problems: there are several instances of "the you" now. Would you mind giving them a quick fix? — {EspyoT} 07:49, 16 December 2012 (EST)
Actually, I was going to say, wasn't it decided somewhere that the preferred PoV was to refer to the player as "the player"? Would that apply here? —Jimbo Jambo 17:31, 16 December 2012 (EST)

Can you tell me which glitches have the problem? Oh, and Jimbo, if that's true, I'll fix the problem. 17:24, 19 December 2012 (EST)

And... Finished fixing the "the you" problem! Oh, and by the way, I am the anonymous user above. I made an account under the name Los Plagas (or you could just look at my sig to find out).-Los Plagas (talk)

Embed Glitch[edit]

The Embed Glitch happened to me in Pikmin 2. (Subterranean Complex, Sublevel 7) The glitch was caused by a Volatile Dweevil. It made the Thirst Activator bounce and go through the wall. I sent in my White Pikmin to carry it, but one of them died because it was over the abyss. The treasure also fell, so when I sent in my purples, it respawned. User:DarkBulbear64

...Okay, so is there any relevance to this post besides informing us of this? You don't need to do that, by the way; unless you're absolutely sure that your edit will cause a major controversy, you don't have to post on the talk page with information detailing your personal experience with it. -Los Plagas

Why?[edit]

If this page is just here so we have organize them alphabetically, couldn't we just edit the old one alphabetically? StuperStar (talk) 04:47, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

We are moving ALL of the glitches on the entire wiki here. We have I think four different glitch pages scattered about, and we need to get it all organized.

Captain JPMRocks, at your service. (talk) 04:56, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, okay :) StuperStar (talk) 04:57, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

What if they were organized first by which game they appeared? I haven't read through most of them, but I doubt they span multiple games. By just reading a few random ones I can't tell which game they refer. Nwagers (talk) 03:55, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

Halp meh please![edit]

I need help organizing all the glitches on the wiki onto this page. All help is welcomed!

hooray glitches!!!!!!!!! - Yellowpik3 (talkcontribs)


Is this recorded?[edit]

I saw a glitch in Pikmin 1 which allows the Person to do the first half of the process to get to the Position Generator on day using a different out of bounds (but works the same) glitch. After getting the Position generator out, kill all your Pikmin via water. The game sends you to day 2. Spend the day repopulating and either collect the Engine or continue with the Position Generator glitch. Come back on day three and collect the Position Generator and Main engine. Get the Generator first. 107.22.183.108 13:58, 20 January 2016 (EST)/Pikifan4 on the Pikmin fanon

It's not on the wiki, but that glitch IS known. It'll be added one of these days. — {EspyoT} 15:08, 20 January 2016 (EST)
