While I am well aware that we have pages on notable and famous glitches, I feel like, much like the list of rumors page, we're forgetting to realize exactly what should qualify as "notable and famous". As the internet has progressed over the years, the Smash community too has progressed and grown over the years, making things easier to be spread and, by previous standards, become notable and famous. However, there becomes a certain point where a line should be drawn, because not everything notable and famous deserves a page, since it usually amounts to a small amount of information, and, in many cases, once notable glitches ultimately getting patched out. I am under the full belief that minor glitches like these do not need full pages, especially in the era of video games where glitches can become patched out and therefore irrelevant.

Support[edit]

  1. Yup, other than the most significant/notable ones, individual glitches should be covered on a "List of glitches (SSBU)" type page, I think. Miles (talk) 16:39, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  2. Totally down for this. Would be great to have a method of centralizing minor glitch articles, considering there are plenty of minor ones scattered across the wiki. Acgamer28Acgamer28SignatureHead.png 16:59, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  3. I think its a great idea because they are some many glitches in smash that are not important that don't have a page. ThegameandwatchIcon2.png Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 17:53, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  4. Support: As a guy who loves glitches and exploiting them I'm all for this. Sometimes glitches are so small I don't even know they exist, and often times those glitches are really minor to where those pages barely have any information in them. Omegα Toαd Toad.png 18:26, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  5. Support for the reasons above. --CanvasK (talk) 18:45, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  6. Support I'm very surprised there isn't already one. Señor Mexicano (talk) 19:13, July 17, 2020 (EDT)
  7. Definitely. I've always wondered why there are pages covering obsolete or minor glitches. A centralized page should be created for all the glitches that have ever existed, but only the more infamous ones like the Black Hole glitch and the Yo-Yo glitch should get its own page.

  8. Very STRONG Support as said above. S3AHAWK Signature icon 1.png S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK signature icon 2.png 15:17, July 19, 2020 (EDT)
  9. Question: does the infinite assist trophy glitch count as notable enough for its own page? I remember that being everywhere when it was discovered. Other than that, most of the other Ultimate glitches don't deserve their own pages in my opinion, so putting them in one page sounds good. 72.219.72.215 15:19, July 19, 2020 (EDT)
    I do not think the infinite Assist Trophy glitch is deserving of its own page, because, again, with the combination of the increase in size of the community due to Ultimate and the evolutions in social media, what constitutes as "notable" has become very fuzzy. I will also clarify that I am not saying that glitches with little information are not deserving of a mention on the wiki—I very much think a "List of glitches (SSBU)" page would be a good idea—but not everything is deserving of a page.

  10. Support. I don't know why this hasn't been considered until now, but it needs to happen. Raul Retana (talk) 16:52, July 19, 2020 (EDT)
  11. Support per above. --PlagueSigImage.pngPlague von KarmaPlagueSigImage.png 17:00, July 19, 2020 (EDT)
