Instructor Email - Official Events ? 61

The details of the email sent to DharmaWantsYou instructors has been sent to us by Lisa.

It says that the T-Shirts will be used for identification purposes at official Dharma Initiative Events, so does that mean we will get some official events ? Click here to read the email contents

first lolol anyway, I thought it was interesting

Zort70 said...

Thanks for the information, it doesn't give us much more info but it does give us some hope that there may be more fun ARG to come.

Codysmom said...

I was over at darkufo's ARG forum yesterday and spent some time trying to crack the login/pass for this e-mailyesterday...lol. Glad I didn't spend too much time on it:)

OK, now what do we do??? lol!

Lisa said...

I'm hoping that something will happen tomorrow since it's the 7th and that's when the testing is was said to stop. something better happen !!! I bet they wait till the 8th though since everything always happened a day late !

Lost 2010 said...

I wonder if they were picked for their locations or something? If things were going to happen in certain cities like before - maybe that was it.

Or maybe not. I give up.

Codysmom said...

Let's see the e-mail was almost a week late, so what's 5-6 days after Oct. 7th???? I bet they do that to us, showing us time is screwed up... lol

Hey, Lisa..... how was the LOST party??? What were the big hits????

Lisa said...

it was alot of fun,we had 6 of us there, I brought my large flat screen TV so we had something to watch season 4 on. We all brought Dharma stuff... I brought fish biscuits, dharma chocolate bars and Dharma logo magnets and others brought Dharma food and some neat ID tags for us all. We watched season 4 for 10 hours strait and than all jumped in our cars and went home lol It was a blast to finally have people to talk to while watching the show.

MadAriad said...

Lisa - that sounds like fun!

I am pretty frustrated with this ARG - again. But I'll keep checking in just in case something interesting happens.

MadAriad said...

Oh Yeah - zort- I was going to comment on that photo from your hotel! That's crazy! Is Dharma watching you or something?!

Ellen said...

interesting about the "get togethers" mentioned in the email! wonder if that means that all of us will be included? hmmm...
xxoo

maven said...

Dharma Initiative Events!? At least that sounds interesting. Lost2010: I like your thinking that instructors were chosen for what city they were to coordinate with the events!

Something else better happen tomorrow other than the Presidential Debate!

Codysmom said...

Great stuff, Lisa... (jealous)..

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hello, everyone!! I'm back from San Antonio at last. I was so tired every night that I never made it over here - looks like I didn't miss much. :)

I never tried the cheats, mostly out of laziness, so I am a White Swan.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, and for those of you who don't make it over to TLC regularly, our next TWO podcasts have been scheduled! We'll be doing the Tempest this Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET and On the Road next Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET. I hope you can join us!

If you want to take Dennis' suggestion and pick up the Original Scroll version of On the Road, I recommend starting NOW! It's a bit difficult to read at times.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, and happy late birthday to Ange!

Capcom said...

Heheh, call me a pessimist, but if there is some kind of DI event, I bet that we get emails about it after it's over. :-p

If their email communication is any indication, the new DI is way behind the curve in their corporate timing, not a good sign for any organization.

missy said...

Hi, I have an account that has no Dharma points and would really appreciate it if one or two of you could take my test.

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=593414056946037175438484151713#/qp

I will take yours in return if you post it here.

I just want to accumulate a few points before tomorrow's deadline. Thanks in advance!

Codysmom said...

Hey, missy... just took your test (and did very badly on it.. only 40%) but, hopefully you got some points. If you want, I have two tests:

EmeraldIsLost said...

oooh official events! well, not for us in the UK i expect, but still!! Sounds fun!! Haven't had much time for the arg in the last week; hectic first week back at uni; so much work already ugh!

EmeraldIsLost said...

+ may i add 15th December?? Thats just ridiculous. Ooh, and we've now finally had episode 1 of Fringe here in the UK; thought it was awesome!

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=251788011425586660832821712371#/qp

Hi Missy I took your test.(30%)Here's a Lost test that's way easier than yours.

Ange said...

Popping in for e-mail comments, to say hi, to say thanks melissa_lossa for the birthday wishes, HERE is a neato map for On The Road that Memphish sent me, don't forget that there is a HUGE list of quizzes on the main page if you want to hit the deadline before tomorrow, and ummm that's all! *wave*

missy said...

Thanks, codysmom, I'll take your tests right now! I really appreciate it. What happened was I had my one account, which I found out today got relegated to the Black Swan. That's what I get for cheating! Well, who knows; for all we know, we were supposed to cheat and could have been rewarded for being clever and figuring out the cheat codes, right? After all, this *is* Lost! But instead, Hans tells us we may not even be eligible to be in the Dharma Initiative, or something to that effect.

So I hastily set up a second account, and did not cheat on anything, and got into the White Swan, although of course with no Dharma points, which I'm sure Hans at least expects us to have some Dharma points!

So, codysmom, I'll take your tests as I'm typing this. Don't expect me to get good grades as I'm just gonna rush through them and give you your 100 points! :D

Site is slow, so while it's loading, let me tell you, codysmom and others, which groups I was assigned. I am very curious about your groups as well, in White Swan versus Black Swan.

My Black Swan account:
Ganymede
Polyphemus
Otus
Cronus
Hemera
Demeter
Black Swan

My White Swan account:
Ganymede
Brontes
Antaeus
Atlas
Chronos
Hestia
White Swan

I still wonder if perhaps the Black Swan will be useful to Dharma and if there's a whole other layer to this!

Okay codysmom, on The Lost Experience Test, I got 50 *but* I googled the second answer as I'm not that good w Lost trivia but wanted to know the answer to that q! Oh; also I did not participate in The Lost Experience; was that a previous game like this one?

On your second test, The Lost Flashback test, I got 100 because I cheated by googling all of them! I wanted to brush up on my Lost knowledge! eek! I actually spent a lot of time reading on Lostpedia about the answers, LOL. I thought you did an excellent job choosing your questions!

P.S. Hi, takes a village, I just saw your post and took your quiz! Thank you very much for taking mine! :) I love the name of your test; Actual Knowledge Relating Numerous Mass-Community. I decided in advance not to cheat as it is almost time for dinner, lol. You're right; it was an easier test! I got a 70. By the way, what was the answer to the "not yet" q?

Wow, everyone, I wish we could all get a Dharma T-shirt! I guess they are only for instructors, but it would be fun!

Thank you sooo much for taking my test! :)

For anyone else who wants to take it, post your tests here and I will take them. Thank you!

Hey Missy

Here are mine. Thanks for all your help!

ANM said...

Hey everyone, just checking in...well I feel so much better now knowing 6 people are going to get free t-shirts to wear at events that in all likelyhood will take place in the USA and mayyybe in AU ONLY so the rest of us Lost fans can look from afar seething with envy/hatred for Hoodlum...argh!So pissed off right now. They better blow me away tomorrow or I swear I will save every penny I earn the next few months so I can buy a ticket to Australia and go kick some Hoodlum ass myself!

missy said...

Hi, paper dolls don't gasp, well here I go about to take your physics test, LOL. I fully expect to get a zero as I know nothing about physics and am terrible at it. So if I score anything, it will be because I randomly selected the right answer. :D I am typing all of this waiting for the test to load ...

Oh wait, this is Lost Physics, but I probably won't do much better; we'll see. Nope; I got a 30! Well, I'm surprised I got that. :D

Okay on the X-files, I haven't watched that show in years, and don't remember much besides the names Mulder and Scully. And for that matter, I'm not sure if I remember who was who! lol. Was David Duchovny Mulder? Ahh well, as you may guess I am waiting again for the test to load ... I only got a 30. And again, I'm surprised I got that. I barely even remember The Smoking Man. I last saw the series when it was originally aired (eek!).

Thanks again to anyone who takes my test.

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=593414056946037175438484151713#/qp

I will take yours in return if you post it here.

missy said...

I took some additional tests.

emeraldislost your architecture test; I scored a 50.

scoutpost, I scored a 50 on your Autism Awareness

zort70 I took your celebration of Giles test and scored a 0!

lost2010 I took your Construction Safety test and scored 100.

If you want to help me score some Dharma points before tomorrow, on my brand new account I set up today, please take my test and I will take yours in return if you post it here. Thanks!

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=593414056946037175438484151713#/qp

Paper Dolls Don't Gasp! said...

Thanks Missy for taking my 2 tests! I really appreciate it! Even if the scores were low. Thanks for trying them out! Mine was a low score too on your test. I guessed on those. lol.
You're correct! David Duchovny was Mulder. And the x-files is one of my all time fave shows. Even had a marathon a few weeks back. Thanks again!

Zort70 said...

missy, I just took the authors test and got 50%

Off to work now, speak later.

Ellen said...

Missy, took your test! Got a whopping 30%...oh well, hope you get some points for that...
xxoo

Sayid'sgirl said...

missy
Took your test. I got a sad 30.

Here's mine if you have time today to take.

Codysmom said...

missy, thanks for taking my tests! you said... "I still wonder if perhaps the Black Swan will be useful to Dharma and if there's a whole other layer to this!" Oh, I think the Black Swan is what it's all about, for sure! You might get a kick out of checking out the
Black Swan myspace that I came up with along with some others from lostargs in reaction to this "ARG". The Lost Experience was the ARG from 2006 that was soooooooo much more interesting than this one or find815 (at least so far).

anm, you totally crack me up:)!!!!!!!!!!

zort, take your camera with you!!!! (loved the other pics and want more)

Zort70 said...

codysmom, your wish is my command

More India pictures

Codysmom said...

Yay!!! thanks, zort.. going to look now..

Codysmom said...

Thanks, zort! I'll put my comments on your pics here since nothing going on with the ARG:

mobile puncher????

Nice view!!! (love palm trees)

Nice accomodations, too!

lol, old and new

Octoberfest in India?? lol

I like Spencer Plaza.. like a mall?

beautiful cathedral!!

nice beach.. still hot there?

jaw dropping (ornate temples)

is that a mosaic made out of real food??

cute singer... lol be good!

Zort70 said...

I'll answer in order -

- mobile puncher????

Tyre puncture repair shop, at the base of a tree.

- I like Spencer Plaza.. like a mall?

Yes like a mall, but with lots of tiny offshoots where you get pounced on by lots of small market like traders. There is a Subway and a Pizza hut in there, but being a country with lots of vegetarians, Hindus, and Muslims there is no Pork or Beef on any menu.

- beautiful cathedral!!

Yes, and very peaceful inside.

- nice beach.. still hot there?

Huge beach, which goes for miles, but it is very dangerous to swim in as a few feet from the shore the beach drops away and there is a strong undercurrent. It was made like that by the Tsunami a few years ago.

The tempurature is between 33 - 35 celcius at the moment. This is supposed to be the monsoon season, but it hasn't started raining yet.

- jaw dropping (ornate temples)

Yes they are fantastic, you have to walk around in bare feet, and when the sun has been beating down on the stone floors for a few hours, it is really hard to stand on.

is that a mosaic made out of real food??

Yes, it was 100% food, part of the festivals that are going on at the moment.

cute singer... lol be good!

I was taking the picture ! They were singers and they got better the more the beer flowed.

Zort70 said...

That should be they are twin singers

maven said...

Enjoying your travelogue, Zort! I don't know if I'll get to India, so it's great to see it through your eyes!

Zort70 said...

Only a small bit I'm afraid, I would love to go to some other places a bit further north.

One of my Nephews has just been sent to Dheli with work for 6 months, so I'll look forward to comparing notes with him when he gets back.

Codysmom said...

Thanks so much, zort! Great commentary! Like maven, I doubt I'll ever make it to India, so this is fantastic to hear about it from you:)

Lost 2010 said...

Missy - I took your literature test but only made a 40. I hope you still get credit.

Zort70 said...

I don't want to hijak the comments with India information, but we have nothing from the ARG yet !

It is the 7th and nothing has happened yet, mind you there is still about 11 hours of the 7th left in some parts of the world, a lot less in others.

Codysmom said...

zort, I've been wondering if it will be 5-6 days AFTER the 7th that anything will happen since the e-mails came so late for test 7? I don't know.. this is frustrating and my "patience is BITTER"!! (lol)

Zort70 said...

My guess is that there will be an update late tonight or tomorrow morning. Probably just to say the recruitment has finished, but you can still take the tests for fun.

Then othing more for a few days.

Zort70 said...

Or even nothing more ;-)

Zort70 said...

By the way this may sound a little cryptic, but remember this day in a few weeks, you'll know when.

Codysmom said...

?????????????????? A LITTLE cryptic???? LOL!

missy said...

Thanks, zort70, ellen, lost2010 and sayid's girl for taking my test! I also forgot to say I took Ange's test and scored 100!

sayid's girl I am about to take your test Nikki and Paulo and as it is loading I will say I don't know my Lost trivia well so I can't even remember who Nikki and Paulo were. Were they from a previous ARG? Or maybe it's one of those subplots I don't remember.

sayid's girl I only scored 30! Thanks for taking my test!

codysmom, myspace takes forever to load on my computer (too many images and sound) so I avoid it like the plague! I haven't spent much time perusing the boards but anywhere you want to point me to gather more info about the Black Swan (besides myspace) would be appreciated! I just tried to open it, computer browser froze but I did see something about a blog? Is there anywhere I can see Black Swan's blog without subscribing to Myspace? Thanks!

Lastly, something I thought of. Has anyone thought, now that we know all the groups for all the different tests, of making a huge poll so that we could vote showing people *all* of our groups, which group we are in? I am so curious on each of my groups as to how many are in each group. But some of the earlier polls are cut off and I can no longer vote in them (plus they are hard to find).

codysmom, I as able to read part of your blog and you making a White Swan cheat account. Do you have any Dharma points on that one or did you just decide to go without Dharma points?

Thanks again to everyone for taking my test so I can have some Dharma points!

Ohh man. Really hope they have international events. Hope theres enough people in ireland to make it worth their while. I rember feeling like a drug dealing twit asking for apollo bars in a shop that didn't take part in the promotion.

Ah the shame of it all...

ARGs ruined my life.

Anonymous said...

BTW, my account that resembles an honest man's account( but isn't) is showing up as unassigned for test seven. I watched the video all the way through(on dial-up -should be worth at least ten dharma points) and it still says INCOMPLETE Unassigned.

Lisa said...

you should try logging out and then back in AMN. that usually fixes it.

Anonymous said...

Tried that. I noticed this first about a day or so after the release of test 7.

Anonymous said...

Disregard my ramblings. The Hans thinks im a criminal!!! Woo, black swan's with safety white swan accounts unite!!!

takes a village said...

Missy;
Glad you got some points on your WS account.Thanks for taking my test also. The answer to "not yet..." was Miles.
Zort;Awesome pictures dude.

BarbaraJay said...

@anm, lol re: " I rember feeling like a drug dealing twit asking for apollo bars in a shop that didn't take part in the promotion. " I took my 16-year-old daughter into downtown Washington DC to a nightclub on a school night to get Apollo bars. Yeah, I was obsessed.

I've decided to embrace my Black Swan self and not try to be a White Swan. Or maybe I'm just an Ugly Duckling.

Codysmom said...

Something is weird at DDWY... I logged into my Black Swan account and tried to click on test 7 and it took me to test 3. I was expecting it to go to the video... then I clicked on test 6 and it went to test 3 again!

ANM said...

Hey I'm ANM!LOl...I make an account and suddenly I lose my carefully constructed personality...;P
Had a very crappy day (family illness issues) and of course no news from this stupid ARG! It doesn't seem so important anymore but boy do I feel duped...gggrrr....I'll give it until tomorrow but somehow my expectations are not super high..uh!Big surprise don't you think!

Zort70 said...

Hi all, I just had one of those odd moments in the wee small hours of the morning and picked up on what some one said in the previous posts comments.

They said they had just listened to a podcast so I checked Talkshoe and sure enough there is a new LOSTARGS Do or Die podcast for us all to enjoy.

NEW POST !

ANM said...

BTW, try refreshing or erasing your cache codysmom, that tends to do the trick!

Lisa said...

site working again !

Lisa said...

humm, there is nothing there, just log in and no tests
