The Dharma Initiative is a multidisciplinary research collective dedicated to improving the human condition through innovative scientific research. Our directors are recognized leaders in their fields, with distinguished research histories in a wide range of social and scientific disciplines.

A new research project is about to commence which will play a vital role in furthering the Dharma Initiative’s objectives.

We require research volunteers to assist in a range of unpaid positions.

Well, if that doesn't convince you, I don't know what will. So head on over, take the test, and register for the Dharma Initiative. Please post your user name and results in the comments.

And check back here for more updates soon!!!!

scoutpost said...

Darn, I can't get on. Gotta go walk the dog. eh well.

Codysmom said...

yeah, it's taking a long time to reload now

memphish said...

Yay! I passed too, though of course my score and ranking is missing.

So who can translate that woman in the background?

And do you think anyone in San Diego used any of those words that we got to multiple choice?

According to the "What Is This?" at the bottom of the page there will be one assessment a week. So when and where do we think Ruckus Guy might strike again?

Codysmom said...

while I'm waiting.... give me the answers! lol

memphish said...

I knew I should have taken notes, but I was too excited to be able to get this done and now go to sleep! See you all tomorrow. Thanks for the posting work Dennis.

Lost 2010 said...

Namaste and good luck. . .(posting for e-mail)

Codysmom said...

g'nite memphish!

Capcom said...

Thanks everyone for hanging in there together and for the new post Dennis. Now we can sleep!!! :-D

I think we'll have blue dreams with ambient music. :o)

maven said...

I gather we all passed! Yeah. Took a while to find a profile pic! LOL

That bg language sounded Dutch or something. I was just concentrating so hard on the questions, didn't pay much attention. These upcoming tests should be interesting.

Capcom said...

P.S. I wonder what the "research project" will be that is mentioned on the "about us" page. Hmmm.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I passed to. And I agree ange they want alot of info.

Eugene said...

Dennis, thanks for the quick posts and for letting me hang out. Good luck and achieve nicely!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Night memphish.
Thanks for your hard work Dennis.

Dennis said...

I do it for my peeps! :)

I'll have a new post with all the test information soon...

Losty said...

awesome! Is it possible to fail? hahaha

melodious said...

Anyone else find it strange that the default birthday on the form was july 17, '78?

maven said...

Dennis, we can always count on you. I just couldn't take everything in at once! Anxious to see what you come up with!

So all this waiting today was just basically to set up your profile page!

jess4ua said...

Finally!
I am signed up :D

maven said...

melodious: Good catch. Of course, I wonder what THAT means! LOL It too me forever to get to my birth year...it was difficult to land on it!

maven said...

Hey, Jess!

I couldn't get my TLC pic up with Elizabeth. Had to use an older one. I don't know why.

Capcom said...

Come back tomorrow Eugene!

I passed, but I could have passed abysmally. :-)

'Night all!

Capcom said...

BTW, good thought Melodious. I did a quickie search on the date after you posted that and didn't come up with anything interesting in the first few pages. We should try more maybe.

Losty said...

so, for anyone that hasn't seen it, check out the "about us" page.

Screencap

wonder what the new project will be? Any thoughts?

Codysmom said...

OK, finally done.

There's a leaderboard again. It says "the names of the 10 highest scoring recruits in each test will be displayed here for your review. This info will be regularly updated. Official Volunteer Assessment commences soon."

Lost 2010 said...

According to Lostpedia, Kate Austen and Hugo Reyes were born in 1977. Charlotte Lewis in 1979.

I thought maybe Hugo. . .

Good night all.

maven said...

For once use west coasters got a good time when this thing went live! I wonder if they're going to stay on this timetable when we get these tests each week?

Codysmom said...

Yep, maven, good timing for the left coast this time, but I'm thinking it won't always be this late.

It's weird... I got sick of waiting for it to load on my desktop pc, so I went to my laptop and everything worked like a charm. Now I'm back to the desktop and the dharmawantsyou page is still trying to load!

maven said...

Is anyone having trouble loading a particular pic for your profile? I wonder why it took my older pic and wouldn't take the one I use here.

Codysmom said...

I decided to put the same avi as I did for my Dharmawantsyou profile. This is Hurley, my bichon.

Codysmom said...

I didn't have any trouble, maven. hmmmm

Dennis said...

Maven, how big is the photo? There is a 2MB limit...

Here are the photo guidelines:

How to upload a photo
To upload a photo, click on the 'Upload Photo' link.
A navigation window will open.
Select the file you want to upload to dharmawantsyou.com(NOTE - choose a portrait that will roughly fit the shape of the example).
There is a 2MB limit on the picture size.
Select the picture and click 'OK'.
The picture will be uploaded and will appear in the portrait box.
Use the 'zoom' control (on the side of the portrait box) to adjust the size of the picture.
You can adjust the position of the picture by clicking and holding on it to move it around.
Make sure you click 'save' when registering.

maven said...

I did read all that, Dennis. Thanks. I guess the one with Elizabeth is too big.

Codysmom said...

dennis, any ideas why dharmawantsyou.com won't load on my desktop (using IE), but has no problem on my laptop (using Firefox)?

Codysmom said...

I just got an e-mail from Hans Van Eeghan

Codysmom said...

It's just telling me to head over to Dharmawantsyou.com and sign up.... a little late...

maven said...

That's funny/ironic, Codysmom!

scoutpost said...

Well I finally walked the dog and got the kids to bed, yada yada yada... took the test and passed. Just waiting for the volunteer assessment to commence! I can see it now "Workman" !! LOL

Sayid'sgirl said...

Codysmom said...

Ok, I'm back. I had to restart my computer for some reason to get it to work.

Awww, I should always have a picture of my Hurley just for your daughter, sayid'sgirl. I really should change my name to hurleysmom, but I figured nobody would know who I was anymore...

Codysmom said...

Unholyart said...

Has anyone taken the Dharma octagon apart and played with the pieces. It seems like there might be a puzzle, like the old wooden dinosaurs I'd put together as a kid.

Let us know if you've found a deeper meaning to the octagon pieces...it's interesting how the pieces move in 3d when you click on the various options on the DWY site. Makes me think a puzzle of some sort is lurking.
