The Dharma initiative
« on: July 19, 2006, 09:06:29 AM »
I'm not sure if this is in the right spot, but I figured that it has to be related to this game somehow (which I'm still trying to figure out how to play it...)

Anyways, I stumbled across an interesting and intriguing site called The Dharma Initiative. Website is http://thedharmainitiative.org/

I clicked on the logo in the center and it shows an orientation film (the same as the original in the hatch minus the clipped section. Link: http://thedharmainitiative.org/orientation/

When I went back to the main page, I tried to click on the Login button. Username and Password come up in a popup message. How do I enter this site?

If thie answer is a spoiler, put in spoiler tags. I don't mind ;) .

Thanks for your help!

Sorry, JB, but it's a fan site.  It wasn't discussed in detail on this forum, but a mod at LOST-TV who I'm friends with often investigates these things.  Here  is a post on that forum that will clear things up... the webmaster admitted that he made the site out of frustration from lack of clues:

It's already in the list of Fraud sites stickied at the top of this forum (I used to sticky it on all the web forums, but that got too tedious to update 3 at a time).

Thanks Pandora!

JB: I sort of wonder if there really is even a password and login. :)  Here's the email truff got after emailing the guy who wrote it...

Let me be as honest as I can be. I am a fan of the show who drank an entire bottle of red wine in preparation for watching lost the night the Dharma episode first aired. I raced to register.com to register the name in hopes of either finding the time to make a fan site or selling the domain name to someone who would. Unfortunately my rockstar lifestyle and ultra demanding job in the dirt industry (no bork i sell soil for a living) has prohibited me from following up on either one of these options. I know this probably comes as a disappointment as this is not part of the greater mystery that is Lost. Just some dude. By the way if you want the domain its for sale.
