[li]November 2003 - February 2004: Nemesis Temple site opened on Tripod. This was generally what was considered "noobish", and was created way before I had any working knowledge of PHP or HTML. It was to become a general-purpose Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh site, with emphasis on the "strange" aspects of Pokemon. Work on the site began November 1, 2003 and extended to January 2004, after which the site fell into disrepair due to a lack of guest activity and enthusiasm on the my part and was superseded by a new site. The name "Nemesis Temple" was reused for a newer, unrelated site in 2005 that had to do with a character "Nemesis".

[li]February 2004 - November 23, 2004: Professor Glitch's Lab, the first modern ancestor of GCL, is opened as a replacement to Nemesis Temple. It was hosted on Tripod, using the same account as Temple. The site had the first Ditto Trick-related breakthroughs, with short pages on Ditto Trick-able Glitches in R/B/Y, as well as Missingno and Yellow and the Ghost/Fossil Missingnos. Later special sections such as Glitch Unowns and Glitch Items were added. To this day there is content on GCL that was taken word-for-word from this old ancestor site. PGL was actively maintained until June 2004, after which plans for a new site were once again developed. The site officially closed down on November 23.

[li]November 23, 2004 - February 13, 2005: The opening of Pokemon Paranormal Research Laboratories (originally Pokemon Phenomenon Research Laboratories). This site had the same vision as GCL, mainly, to be a dynamic site maintained daily by multiple staffpersons and to recieve submissions for research from visitors. It was a subdomain of abwayax.net. It ran on PHPNuke and was not overly successful. The forum engine was originally phpBB integrated with PHPNuke, but switched later to SMF. During the site's run, some of the content from PGL was retained while a new article was written for the regular and Ghost/Skeleton MissingNos. Additionally, pages regarding 3TrainerPoke and PokeWTrainer were added. In February 13, 2005, the forum was disconnected from the PPRL site and combined with the TinyPortal addon for SMF (then in beta stage) to produce Glitch City.

[li]February 13, 2005 - July 2005 - Glitch City, the direct ancestor of Glitch City Labs, is born. This consisted of TinyPortal bolted onto SMF, and glitch content from PPRL and PGL was added in. It retained the pprlforum.abwayax.com URL until April 4, 2005, when the site gained its own domain, glitchcity.net (not in use today). It also featured topsites. During the life of Glitch City, many of GCL's present staff met each other. Project Melchior was also started here, although the data collected wasn't put to any real use until now. In around June 2005, the site was relaunched, now powered by the Mambo CMS engine, while retaining the forums. Due to conflicts with my host at the time, Ideal-Hosting (now dead as well), as well as a feud with opposing glitchologist Crystal Mew, who seems to have retired, the site "finally kicked the bucket" (according to Izwzyzx) in July (NB. It was believed for a while that he was somehow involved in the death of the site, but nothing has come up).

[li]??? (August?) 2005 - March 2006 - Glitchcity.net now redirects to Team Zero Hideout. This is the backup forum I established so we can reconvene and plan to re-establish Glitch City. Most of the planning for Glitch City Laboratories was done here. Initially the forum was powered by OvBB (which was very buggy at the time), but later was converted to MyBB. Later on (November 2005, I believe), the idea for a "network" of glitch sites that share one forum was put up, and TZH became the forums of the Super Glitch Alliance. Now Glitch City Laboratories is established in December 2005 and revealed to the public later. However, the SGA itself never took off and in January or February 2006 the forum became simply the Glitch City Laboratories forum. In March 2006, the MyBB forum was deactivated and all members were referred the new forum - that is, this one.

[li]December 2005 - now: Glitch City Laboratories, the culmination of all these events. It is larger, more comprehensive, successful, and popular than all of its predecessors combined. Let's keep it that way.
