Minor glitches should be in Category:Minor glitches along with Category:Minor glitches (version).

Although there seems to be no consensus on what exactly defines minor. I'm probably going to suggest it be defined as a graphical glitch that has no effect on gameplay, with "headline"/"major" glitches being the standard Old Man, Ditto, Mew, Q glitches, and categorized as Category:Major glitches and Category:Major glitches (version). Glitchdex pages will be in their own categories.

"Miscellaneous glitches" seems to consist of glitches that do affect gameplay in some small way, but if the distinction is not clear enough we can merge this with minor glitches.

"Speed runner glitches" are glitches that simply help the player get through the game faster, like Get Past Marowak without Silph Scope or Get Through Cycling Road without a Bike. We could also merge this with minor glitches.

A lot of articles are about effects of the glitch attack known commonly as "Super Glitch". What I think I'll do is just merge all of these effect articles into the Super Glitch article.

Finally, 'dex entries do indeed get "Category:Glitch (Pokemon/attack/item)" as well as "Category:Glitch (pokemon/attack/item) (version)" and will most likely use the Glitchdex 2.0 style designations ("RB:000") as pagenames.

I count fourteen uncategorized articles in Special:UncategorizedPages

Bird Type - "Beta information (Red/Blue)", "Beta information (Gold/Silver/Crystal)"
Codebreaker - "Dictionary"
Ditto Trick - "Major glitches (Red/Blue)", "Major glitches (Yellow)"
Main Page - probably does not need categorization
PokéPC effect - not sure, this is an effect of Super Glitch so we'd have to decide where Super Glitch itself falls within the spectrum
Pokémon Cloning - index of cloning tricks, maybe it gets "Major glitches" or we give cloning articles their own cat
Pokémon Cloning (Emerald) - "Major glitches (Emerald)"
Pokémon Cloning (Generation I) - "Major glitches (Red/Blue)", "Major glitches (Yellow)"
Pokémon Cloning (Generation II) - "Major glitches (Gold/Silver/Crystal)"
R/B Name Generator - probably does not need it, but "Tools" if otherwise
S.S. Anne Ship Truck - "Category:Beta information (Red/Blue/Yellow)" assuming this has something to do with the R/B/Y beta, I forget
Screwed-up sounds effect - superglitch effect I believe, see above
TMTRAINER effect - "
Tasks - does not need to be categorized, but if need be I'll move it into the project namespace

As an aside, we're using Extension:FlaggedRevs to ensure all content is accurate. Registered users can make edits to a draft version of an article, but only sysops and "QC" users can approve them to show up as "reviewed edits". This was done because one of the concerns we had was that someone would put false information and no one would bother to check it. The problem we have that other wikis typically do not is that our information is pretty much original research. Even Bulbapedia and Sonic Retro, which are more specialized than Wikipedia, don't tend to have that problem because much of the information is somewhere else. Wikipedia explicitly denies being responsible for any entries and expects contributors to cite sources, but we don't have sources to cite because we find all of this out ourselves. Thus, we have our staff oversee and verify everything that gets put on the site so that we can say we are responsible for our content.

We had this sort of thing with "Submit a Glitch" in some way, but there was an enormous backlog at times because staff would approve of a glitch but not add it to the site. With this system we can allow users to directly participate in the site whilst not compromising our integrity. While we are volunteer staff, we hold ourselves responsible for the content unlike Wikipedia's sysops.

I can handle some of the beta info if you want Abwayax. I know where to find images plus I have some screenshots from Goldmap viewing them. I can post them here if you want but I have to tell you I have no experience with Posting Images in Wikis.

Aren't you using MediaWiki? The format should be [[Image:*filename*]], not [[File:]]

Ah.

I think it's File for 1.14, which we aren't using. I got confused because that's the version Wikipedia is using, but we're on 1.13. Sorry.

Could Glitch Myths possibly be a category?

Probably not - there are not enough of them

Think we should forum-link these articles? Major ones could be made first, but later gradually more minorer ones could be added.

I've imported everything I have from Melchiors 1,2,3, and 9. Next will be the item/attackdex ones.

Sorry I'm late. Feburary was a bad month for me getting things done. I shall attempt to port information across.
Quick question, will this wiki be for all games. So any game that an authorised member wishes to add glitches for they can? Or Pokemon only?

Also are the translations going to be include here?

I want to be involved again in glitching and page writing so hopefully this will give me a spark.

I'll answer it in points

1. It will be mainly pokemon, but there will be sections for other games (not just Sonic/Mario/Zelda).
2. Yes, probably under subpages or alternate namespaces or something, ex: English would be [[Ditto Trick]], German would be [[Deutsch:(German name for Ditto Trick]], Spanish would be [[Espanol:(Spanish name for Ditto Trick)]] etc. I want to avoid using Babelfish/Google translations if possible because it's kind of haphazard, and we have native speakers of German, Spanish, and Italian I believe

Headline glitches info are imported.  All they need is a few pictures added on and maybe some formatting.

We're almost there. All I need to do is some more coding on the 'dexes backend and importing data from the rest of Melchior and then we should be set to go.

What I'll probably also do is, instead of re-using GCL's "theme" from the old site, is change the default monobook theme to look more GCL-ish.
