but this is irrelevant here because glitchology is not a subject, ha ha).
Glitchology itself may not be a subject, but it is really just another name for software (game software in this case) reverse engineering/debugging/programming/etc. which are indeed subjects. And I'm sure someone here is an actual certified expert on those fields.

This is still irrelevant though because Wikipedians are of the mindset "If it's a forum or wiki then it could be wrong because anyone can edit it!!!!1111" as though some journalist's summary of the same sources is somehow more accurate and not prone to said journalist's misinterpretations. What this requires is the policy makers at Wikipedia to actually think about why they have those policies on what constitutes a reliable source in the first place, and how those policies might or might not apply to this situation. I'd say a bunch of people on the internet who know more about game internals because they do the kind of things some people do for careers (not exact things, but debugging is an actual thing that people do) as a hobby (i.e. us) are a bit more reliable than whatever it is they're worrying about.


I need a new siggy, because this siggy is shitty... shittiggy... shiggy.... something.

I've updated the Missingno. page. Let me know if you see any errors. The Yellow TM/HM data hasn't been added yet.
A little error/typo i noticed at the beginning of the article:
Quote
Missingno. (Japanese: けつばん Ketsuban) is a dual-type Bird/Normal glitch Pokémon in Pokémon Red and Blue, and a dual-type Normal/randomly named glitch move (which often has '9' in it) glitch Pokémon in Pokémon Yellow.
I believe it should be glitch type

✿ Hi, I'm Evie. Transgender woman but spiritually doesn't believe 'male'/'female' needs to be defined; lives more stereotypically like a woman/I'm a 'girly' nerd who discovered herself. Call me whichever pronouns you like. :)

Feel free to contact me here about anything regarding the site.

Forgiveness. I feel that the more people pray to our greatest source/God/mathematical equality for world peace, the more and more it manifests into reality (until our next spiritual death).

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

I've tried to create an article on inverted sprites on Bulbapedia.  I'd appreciate someone reviewing it, as I'm not sure of it's quality and accuracy. 

Also, the abuse filter keeps complaining to me about "Non-wikitext".  The page has a few instances of <br>, but they are in sections copied from the missingno page.  Is that something I should be worried about?
When I underline text, that usualy means I am using the [‍acroynm] tag to provide aditional information.  Hover over it to view.
