Dennis said...

I would still like to compile a list of all the questions and answers for test #4 (since no one else has done it yet...)

If there are only 140 questions like last time, then only 14 people would need to type up their questions.

Is anyone willing to help out? Pretty please? :)

Dennis said...

Here's my first set. I don't know the answers to the last two... anyone?

What letter, inserted twice into "renchry", will make a two-word English phrase?
O
F (French Fry) *

The First Name Of The Mayor Of New York (Michael)
The First Name Of President Truman (Harry) *
The First Name Of Madonna's Husband (Guy)
The First Name Of The Youngest Brady (Bobby)

75% are red, 75% are flat, 75% are soft; what's then minimum percentage that are red, flat and soft?
50%
25%
75%
10%

What gets wetter the more it dries?
Dry Ice
A Towel
Dirt
Leaves

What number do you get if you divide 40 by half and add ten?
50
20
35
90 ((40 / .5) + 10)

What letter, inserted twice into "unboets", will make a two-word English phrase?
N

What letter comes next in this sequence "Z X C V B N"

Lost 2010 said...

I wrote down my questions for you but then couldn't find where you asked for them. Should I type them up and e-mail them to admins?

Some of mine are the same as yours but several are different.

Codysmom said...

yay! new podcast!!

re-posting from last thread:

lol, ANM... you've burned yourself out... go relax!

I watched the pilot of Lost (parts 1 and 2) last night on G4 (without the pop-ups). It was great as always!!!! Of special note this time watching = the phenomenal acting, esp. Kate (surprised me, even).

Tonight G4 runs part 1 of the pilot with the pop-ups at 9PM (Eastern). G4 will also be re-running their viewings at 4 PM the next day (in case you missed it or even better, so you don't have to miss any of the new shows coming up).

dennis, darkufo has a list. Maybe no need to do this....

Ange said...

I'm on it SayidsGirl...thanks for the proof!

Dennis, I think they did that at Dark UFO? HERE or am I looking at the wrong thing?

maven said...

Thanks for podcast, guys! Although, sadly, there's not much to talk about. Yeah, I wonder what Carlton and Damon are thinking. Either they're are very concerned or laughing their heads off because we don't know what's coming. (I hope it's the later.)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Lost is also on the sci fi channel right now up until 11:00 eastern.

Sayid'sgirl said...

ange
You're welcome.
I might watch the G4 one tonight or maybe at 4:00 tomorrow.

Ellen said...

Hi ya'll! I've so enjoyed the quizzes! I'm still taking them-just scored 40% on Anonymous' Logic Test...does that tell ya how illogical I am? lol! :D

xxoo

LostIt said...

Unlike most of you, I have not enjoyed the quizes at all. There are too many of them to take and keep track of and I can't think of anything to create a test about. This doesn't fit with my vision of what an ARG should be. We can do this without an official ARG run by a company getting paid for it (in fact we did do this with the slovaltine clues and at least that was more varied instead of just a bunch of 10-question quizzes). I actually miss the glyph hunt!

I'm ready to giveup on this ARG. Now that Fringe has started, I'll probably spend my time reading that blog until LOST starts up again.

Have fun everyone! See you on TLC in Feb (that's when LOST starts again, right?).

scoutpost said...

I put this in the other post also, but didn't know exactly where people would be checking, so: I finally made a quiz, its on Autism Awareness if anyone wants to take it. :)

Zort70 said...

Dennis, I've sent a list of questions to your email

Zort70 said...

scoutpost, I tried the Autism Awareness test and only got 40, but it was a very well put together test.

Zort70 said...

lostit, don't give up, take a back seat maybe, but stay with us. You never know something exciting might happen.

It is ironic though that the most fun we have had is with our own content and not that of the ARG !

Zort70 said...

I've just read that NASA is going to send Maven into space !

Ange said...

Sorry to see you go Lostit. I agree with Zort though, lurk a little just in case it gets better.

I added two more quizzes to the post, and with that I am off to listen to the podcast on the way to work!

Anonymous said...

LOl, if you read my last few posts on the previous thread you will know that I too have almost had it with this ARG (more specifically with the recruit-tests...I must have taken 300 by now!) but I will persevere, even with Fringe going on!!
Dennis, I have seen a list of Test 4 questions over at DarkUFO but if you like I'll take it again and send you the one's I get (just remind me to which email please!)
Sayid'sgirl, my 6th link is to my secondary account's tests that I made so it wouldn't have 0 points by tomorrow ;P



ANM

Sayid'sgirl said...

Well I'm finally done with all the tests. No more updates! lol
And I have to say I with ANM I'm sick of taking tests.
But now I have to take a Dharma test tonight/tomorrow.
Here are (I hope) my final scores.
anon #1 40 anon #2 80 anon #3 100 anon #4 40 anon #5 100 (anon #3 and #5 by the same person were Lost related)Howl 60, ReverendMilo 60, Kristiaps194 #1 100, kritiaps194 #2 80, Kristiaps194 #3 30 and scoutpost I'm afraid I did very poorly on your test. I got a 20.

Zort70 said...

I think we will have to call a halt to updating the blog post with test URLs at some point soon.

I think a weeks worth is plenty !

blueheron13 said...

Hi everyone,

Did anyone here see the popup version of Lost on G4 (I could not)? If so, was there anything revealed? Does anyone have a transcript?

Thanks!

Dennis said...

Ange said... Dennis, I think they did that at Dark UFO? HERE or am I looking at the wrong thing?

Thanks Ange, that's exactly what I was looking for! They didn't have one the last time I checked.

Anonymous said...

Well Im off to the gym, gotta fights those ARG related clots!


ANM

maven said...

Zort: Thanks for that NASA link! I'm famous! LOL Made my morning

I think we're feeling a little tested out. It's supposed to end tomorrow, right? And Lostit, I feel your pain, but please continue to lurk and check in...you never know what might happen.

Codysmom said...

It looks like everyone is sick of taking tests:) ME TOO.... so I hope something interesting and NEW comes to us soon... BUT if dennis made another few tests for his own account, it would be ok by me so we can get him on the leaderboard. The tests wouldn't even have to make sense.. anything would do, like test 1 all answers are A, test 2 all answers B, etc.

scoutpost, I only got 50% on your test, but it was a good one!

zort, good find on the Maven mission! I'll have to ask my "rocket scientist" daughter-in-law if she knows anything about that...

hi, blueheron 13! I saw part of the pop-up/G4 version of Lost last night (DH kept changing to football off and on). It will be repeated at 4pm here (eastern) and I'm going to watch it again more closely.

blueheron13 said...

Thanks, Codysmom.

Looking forward to reading any info you can post.

scoutpost said...

Thanks you guys for taking one more quiz!!
Sorry about the low scores, by the time I got around to doing my quiz it seemed like everyone already had a quiz about everything else!

lostit- I feel the same way you do. I mean I just barely decided to go ahead with making a quiz. I would/will still lurk, but I agree, if they don't pick up the pace or change the game a little to give us some sort of reason for doing these tests, then I will probably stop playing, too. I guess I keep hoping that the next stage will be better, but they are testing my patience!

And Maven- congrats on your Mars mission! Don't bring back any little green men...

EmeraldIsLost said...

the leaderboard has finally updated; darkufo is now 2nd.

Seen Fringe advertised on tv here in the uk; looks like its coming soon to us, yay.

maven said...

Well, this ARG definitely has a different feeling than I had with TLE. With TLE I couldn't wait to get up and turn on the laptop to see the latest and greatest discussions and movement in the game. This summer, I'm so much more laid back, and this is not my #1 priority. I will not give up and I will be here for what may or may not come, but the intensity is missing.

Codysmom said...

I agree about the intesity, maven, but I still have high hopes of this thing getting good... I'm not giving up!!!!!

Codysmom said...

Good news!! Our lisa (maladylis - friend here and at Black Swan myspace) is 4th on the leader board at DDWY!!! She has just told me she's working on keeping 4th place and even aspiring to being in second place!!

Zort70 said...

emaraldislost - yes Fringe should be on Sky1 in a couple of weeks.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Woo Hoo Go Lisa!!!
Also congrats to DarkUFO.
maven be careful up there on Mars. :)
I know this arg isn't omg exciting but I'm going to stick with it. I'm like everyone else, I'm hoping after we get done with these tests and get on to the second stage it will get better.

Anonymous said...

Back from the gym...one more week free of clots lol


ANM

Codysmom said...

lol, ANM..

I've offered Lisa the position of CEO for Black Swan.... waiting to hear if she accepts:)

Codysmom said...

She accepted!!

takes a village said...

Maven,Taking the Red Eye to the Red Planet; I can't wait to see that quilt.By 2013,we should all be settled into our volunteer roles at the New Dharma Innitiative.Some of us may actually
be getting paid.Or we could all be in a Dharma pit somewhere.

Lisa,congratulations on your#4,and the new Black Swan CEO position.

Blueheron13,If you don't get G4,you
can check out
http://www.g4tv.com/lost/
They will soon have an interactive episode guide.That may be of some help.I think the 4pm showing will work best for me though.

Dennis said...

Codysmom said... if dennis made another few tests for his own account, it would be ok by me so we can get him on the leaderboard.

OK, here is a new test from me - it is a Goat quiz. I'll come up with a few more tonight, plus a new Fringe quiz for tonight's episode.

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=437167942443003759886823783761#/qp

Let me know how you guys do. My wife said it was too easy...

Codysmom said...

dennis, I hate it when people say "it's easy" and then I get like 40%...LOL

(you could get a few more hits by posting a myspace bulletin and/or leaving the test link in the Black Swan comments section, if you want)

Anonymous said...

I wanna be a covert operative for the BSWY!lol



ANM

Anonymous said...

BTW changed my myspace avatar...I just couldn't resist myself hehehe


ANM

Codysmom said...

ANM, you're already a covert operative for BSWY (we all are...lol) and yes, I noticed new avi:)

dennis, I did better than I thought on the goat test (70%) How many stomachs do goats have????

Codysmom said...

ANM, you wanna be BSWY treasurer? It would be an easy job since we have no money:)

Dennis said...

Good job! It's only easy if you know a lot about goats ;)

BTW, I posted my test in the BSWY comments...

Anonymous said...

The Goat test was easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Crap I'm dumb...


ANM

Anonymous said...

Lol thanks for the vote of confidence Codysmom, I will try not to make BSWY go bankrupt...although technically since we have no money to speak of, we're already broke!



ANM

Codysmom said...

Want me to use your old avi for your poster, ANM?

dennis... got it. (you should also post a bulletin..."for ARG players" in subject)

Anonymous said...

my poster?


ANM

Codysmom said...

ANM, if you look at the Black Swan myspace, you'll see where I put a "poster" of our new CEO, lisa. If you're going to be our treasurer, I could make a "poster" for our page, too...

Anonymous said...

Oh I see...Ok, although the image is a bit small for a poster...let me find a slightly bigger one and I'll give you the url ok?


ANM

Codysmom said...

ok

Codysmom said...

nice! got it...

Sayid'sgirl said...

dennis
I got a 60 on your goat quiz. Liked the car question about the goat. ;)

Codysmom said...

ANM, delete your photo URL post now, ok? or dennis do it.... (privacy reasons)

Dennis said...

ANM, I deleted it.

BTW, you should create a blogger account so you're not "anonymous" anymore.

Anonymous said...

You're right...although being ANM I'm not anonymous anymore....get it?No?
ANM= AnonymousNoMore
Lol

ANM

M said...

ok how's this?

ANM said...

ok now

Dennis said...

Cool! Now you just need an avatar ;)

Codysmom said...

ANM, do you know how to put pictures side by side on myspace?

Codysmom said...

nm

Anonymous said...

on it!

Anonymous said...

mmm

ANM said...

ok

ANM said...

mmmmm..cant really read it....

Ange said...

I got a 60% on goats which means I know exactly 60% more about goats than I thought I did. Although the Brady Bunch and car questions helped me a lot. I did Rachel Blake goat proud Dennis.

ANM said...

lets see if this is better

Lost 2010 said...

Okay, now I'm thoroughly accused. Is anm the anonymous that's been signing posts ANM? Or is that the person who just posted as anonymous? I'm quite easily confused so it's probably obvious to everyone else.

Sayid'sgirl said...

anm
Nice avi!

Sayid'sgirl said...

codysmom
Have figured out how to put a pic side by side on myspace?
Maybe you could put two pictures together with photoshop or something similar then save it as one picture.

Sorta of like this
my two favorite guys.

Of course you could do a better job than I did. Just a thought.

ANM said...

lost2010, I always sign ANM, all the other anonymous are copycats hehehe ;P

Anonymous said...

@codysmom and sayidsgirl, what pisses me off is the size of the pics...they're too small!

ANM said...

ok that's weird

ANM said...

And once more just in case...

Codysmom said...

I like the avi, anm!!

yes, sayid'sgirl, like that... don't have photoshop, though.. just photobucket and a program called collage creator

Codysmom said...

lost2010,

anm = ANM

Sayid'sgirl said...

anon
Are you working on the pics for codysmom's myspace page?
My pics are just an example of an idea she might try if she wanted to. I made that for a blogger avi along time ago.

Sayid'sgirl said...

codysmom
I made that in paint. But to honest with you it was so long ago I forgot how I did it. lol

Codysmom said...

Or, what I'm trying to do is center a picture in the "about me" section of the myspace page.....

and no, I can't do better than you sayid'sgirl... your page looks better than mine!

ANM said...

Well, paint and photobucket both can be used to obtain something like what sayid'sgirl did...I think!? I'm no expert!

Codysmom said...

I'm terrible with paint other than for screencaps.. lol

Ange said...

CodysMom: I am going to send you a myspace message about how to center stuff on myspace because blogger won't let me type the tags here without trying to make things centered LOL. Watch for it :D

ANM said...

Isn't there a code to center pics...no wait, I know the one to center text...mmmm...will look around.

ANM said...

Put "< center >" before the image code

ANM said...

Only with no spaces between the < and the c nor the > and the r.

Codysmom said...

thanks, ange and anm... going to check and try

Sayid'sgirl said...

BTW codysmom
Your page is much nicer than mine and ANM helped me with mine. She gave me a link to a website with codes and I found another one on my own. All I did was copy and paste.

ANM said...

Of course the image URL will be followed by "< /center >, again with no spaces...sorry I forgot to mention it before!

Codysmom said...

It's working for text, but still having a bit of trouble with picture... it shows some of the writing.. go look

ANM said...

I see what you mean...that usually happens 'cause there's an extra space there somewhere...try separating the text part from the URLs a few lines....and checking all the ">" and "<" are close to the letters before/after them....

Codysmom said...

ok

ANM said...

Mmmm..it's hard without seeing all the written code you've got in there...it appeared after you cetered the image right? And the visible text seems to be part of the URL to either the Alpert/Lisa image in photobucket....mmmmm

Codysmom said...

think I got it.. for that one anyway... drives me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll be working on this all night!!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good job codysmom!!

Codysmom said...

thanks! using some other codes, too..

just going to use what works... this is worse than taking tests!!

ANM said...

YAY!!You did it!!So proud :D

ANM said...

Ok off too ZzZ land once more! Will log in tomorrow asap to see what's new! Fingers crossed!

Codysmom said...

you guys are so sweet!! ange, too!!!! No wonder I like to hang out here:)

ANM said...

BTW, thanks for the poster!

BarbaraJay said...

Hi! I finally finished my one and only test, just under the deadline.

Go here for The Lost Psychological Profiles Test.

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=442519226097576205962426027810#/qp

Thanks!

Codysmom said...

Your welcome, anm!

barbarajay, I'll go take your test right after I fix my myspace

Sayid'sgirl said...

barbarajay
I pasted your url in at DWY and went into it's update, sorry.

Ange said...

If DWY is updating now, you think the September 17th deadline is correct? Is it September 17th wherever in time DWY is?

PS: I call shenanigans that the site is updating 15 MINUTES BEFORE FRINGE IS ON! They better update for a whole hour...just saying.

takes a village said...

Barbarajay,glad you got it in.I am going to take it before Fringe starts.I also plan to stop by and see all the new Black Swan masterpieces.
In case you guys ever wondered, "Takes a Village"??? I put this on my profile today;
"Takes a village" is dedicated to Zack and Emma;survivors of Flight 815. After the crash they were taken in the night, and are being raised by a village of Others. Last seen in Season3 they are now probably at the Temple. I hope Cindy and the rest of the village, are looking out for them;Ben said that they are on the list.

BarbaraJay said...

lol, why am I not surprised? Thanks for trying codysmom and sayidsgirl. It'll be there later.

I'm a little quizzed out after taking so many. At least I have an excuse for taking a break.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know that would make it a day early in the states. But their emails are a day late.

I agree it better take atleast an hour to update. :)

Ange said...

New Post

Congested said...

Sorry I haven't been posting these recently on DarkUFO guys. No disrespect. I've just fallen out of the loop with the ARG.. I havent even logged on the dwy site in weeks nor have I done the last couple tests. I'll see about posting this there soon..
