Um, I'm not sure if this is the place, but there is an omission in the TFA RPG Archives. The term "glitch" is not defined, making the term "spawn of a glitch" rather unintelligible for use.

Soooooo you want to know what a glitch is? I thought that in this day and age, everybody knows what a glitch is. :|

But to help you out, the definition of glitch is error.

Synonyms are: bug, defect, flaw, hitch, malfunction, misfire, mishap, problem, setback, snafu, snag.

You're welcome.

Even though glitch is a common enough word, this isn't the first time I've seen someone complain that that phrase doesn't make sense. Especially since some of our posters speak English as a second language (even some of the ones in the US).

Yup, I'm actually one of them. :p

Didn't mean to come off as a bit snarky, I was just suprised that's all. :up:

Oh, I speak perfect english (if not with a southern United States accent), but I pointed it out as a "glich" can mean several things when it comes to transformers. It can mean a simple error in programming, a problem, or, such in the rpgs I run, the equivalent of a female bloodhound, or a female human that interfaces with a lot of males. The problem I see is there is no definition when it comes to the Archive.

Well you have to remember it was us humans who came up with these phrases for the transformers fantasy world, so often times it doesn't have a sophsiticated meaning. They're just merely are more appropriate-sounding phrases for a robot than the original, which in many cases may be inappropriate for use, such as son of a... well you get the picture I imagine. Don't strain your brain on it, they're just meant to help with the mood :lol:

We didn't make "spawn of a glitch" up though, it's official gibberish. I don't think it's really our place to define it other than to say "yeah, robots don't like it when you call them this".

"yeah, robots don't like it when you call them this".

That's good enough for me. lol
