Minor imitation websites

''See main article of all imitation websites at  List of websites''

Many websites exist that claim they are companies from Lost, or that they are part of the Lost Experience. While some have fake clues and other media, some are very simple and have very few easter eggs/"clues", and therefore do not need an article dedicated to them. These websites are below.

''If your picture looks really good, you may end up seeing it posted for everyone to see, like this person who attempted access 3 times with the wrong password recently''

''If you think we are being unfair, you should see what we do with people who steal or call in sick to work.''

''Have a nice day. Now get back to work.''

http//www.blockhanso.blogspot.com Link

This blog is a very accurate copy of Rachel Blake (Persephone)'s blog, using images and backgrounds all hosted on Rachelblake.com (the official website). 

The latest blog post claims that the Hanso Foundation has stolen her laptop and hacked her website, and there is an image of a glyphs, however it is false and does not work in Hansoexposed.com.

http//www.dharmainitiative.com Link

The title of this website is "23", and at the top of the page there is the word "diapause". Below that, an image of what seems to be a father and his daughter (the image is entited diapause.jpg). Below that is a place to email "david@dharmainitiative.com".


This is a fan-created scam site which falsely claims to have access to spoilers.  It consists of a DHARMA logo, clicking each section of the hexagon leads to a page of information about Lost. Theories expressed on this site include ones about Walt, Black Smoke and "Mr. Friendly". The site also hosts several additional fake orientation films.

http//www.dickcheever.blogspot.com Link

This blog is by someone claiming to be Dick Cheever. In his posts there are "clues" in the form of bolded letters spelling out the words '''africa''', '''spiderprotocol''', '''ggirlisaplant''', '''usernameisthecheever''', '''sanremoitaly''', '''rbmustbesilenced''' and '''hanso'''.

The blog image is the picture from Dick Cheevers profile on Thehansofoundation.org (before the website went offline) cut out, and pasted on an image of a lake or dock.

http//www.hansoadoptions.org Link

Website claiming to be an adoption organization run by Hanso.

http//www.hansoair.org/ Link

Website claiming to be a Hanso airline.


Searching Google for "Oceanic Airlines" brings up an advertisement reading "We are HansoAir We are no longer Oceanic Airlines. Meet HansoAir and fly the tropics."

This website is programmed to show whatever is at persephone.thehansofoundation.org. The title of the page is "GWC" a reference to the Global Welfare Consortium.

==Mack Thompson Law==
http//www.mackthompsonlaw.com Link

This website is for a fake lawyer character who claims to be involved with lawsuits against Hanso.

http//www.minnesotametallurgy.com Link

There is a hidden link on the Homepage that links to the admin login for 1and1.com, a hosting service.  This is the same service which provides DNS for the domain.  Because of this, It seems that it's a fan site. The registrant claims to be Cameron Widmore, however this is probably false. The website has only a few lines of text;

''Due to technical difficulties, www.minnesotametallurgy.com has been offline for the past few days.'

''We are investigating the situation and hope to be back online as soon as possible.''

''Please accept our apologies and check back soon.''

''Thank you.''

http//www.freewebs.com/oceanic-airlines Link

On this site there is information about Oceanic shutting down due to the crash of Flight 815,its history, as well as a fake image of an Oceanic Airlines plane. Many of the other pages in this website are temporarily unavailable but if you go into the "Flight 815" page and click on the link at the bottom of the page it will take you to an (imitation of coarse) video of flight 815 crashing.

http//www.oceanicworldairlines.com Link

The whole website is just one image, the Hanso Foundation advertisement discussing ''Bad Twin''.

 Don't believe "Bad Twin"
 For over thirty years, the Hanso Foundation has stood for
 compassion and innovation, but today out reputation has been
 attacked in the novel "Bad Twin," written by Gary Troup and published
 by Hyperion Books.
 Throughout the pages of "Bad Twin," readers have found numerous
 passages featuring misinformation about the Hanso Foundation and
 its partners. The Hanso Foundation srongly objects to the book
 "Bad Twin," and encourages readers to make up their own minds.
 The truth about the Hanso Foundation is available at
 www.TheHansoFoundation.org and not on the pages of
 Gary Troup's "Bad Twin."
 Experience it for yourself,
 Thank you and namaste.

==Paikindustries.com== According to http//www.thelostexperience.com/ http//www.thelostexperience.com/, this is a List of websitesLost Experience. The website seems blank, but there's hidden text only visible when selected, seen below. PHI OP hold SLP continue ZP continue 최후 ==Retrieveroftruth.com== {{I=200 dharma.jpg=200=right=Retrieveroftruth.com's Logo}} A misspelling of a real Lost Experience website, (Retrieversoftruth.com) Retrieveroftruth.com has a poorly created the Swan logo, as well as text on cloning obviously copied from wikipediawikipedia. According to the whois information , the registrant is a Michael Switzer, proving that this is a fansite.
==Stophanso.com== http//www.stophanso.com/ Link This website was is probably named as it is because Rachel Blake (Persephone)'s secret blog was at stophanso.rachelblake.com. This is an entirely flash website. The first page is three blue lines, with the phrase "''Do you want the truth?''" in between them. When this is clicked, it shows various images, one of them Alvar Hanso, and then text appears; "''Stop Alvar Hanso''", and below that are some clickable words, "''Why the Hanso Foundation is evil''". This leads to an error page that reads "''This page has been removed. Please visit www.TheHansoFoundation.org for accurate information on the Hanso Foundation.''" ==TheDharmaInitiative.org== This website displays a large the Swan logo and a "login" link. Determined to be a fansite, based on * Confirmation from Speakerhttp//www.insidetheexperience.com/2006/05/valenzetti.html* Use of a fan-created logo. * Absence of any evidence demonstrating authenticity. Clicking on the "The Swan" logo launches the Swan's orientation film in ".mov" format. Clicking on the "login" link launches a separate window, requesting login and password. The page source reveals that this site performs an MD5 checksum function, suggesting that a login is actually possible. The URL http//thedharmainitiative.org/4-8-15-16-23-42/ directs to a blank page, the source of which includes the comment "Nothing to see here ...yet." {{I=LOGIN.JPG=250=right=Login page}} *The LOGIN Frame This frame has two text fields, a user field that already has "lmpereir" as default, and the password field that is blank. *Note that if one googles "lmpereir" one finds only one link; http//www2.hawaii.edu/~lmpereir/index.htm American Samoa (well they're actually 7 of them, however all belong to the same main page) leading you to a website that seems to be like a "touristic guide/blog" or something similar about American Samoa, in the Pala Ferry's article there is a "Conection" that says "Pala Lagoon is next to the airport on Tutuila Island, American Samoa, a few miles by water and road from the town of Pago Pago". http//www.steelsphere.com/?p=211 Steelsphere.com blog posting about cracking thedharmainitiative.org. http//www.criticalsecurity.net/index.php?showtopic=8273 Criticalsecurity.net forum posting about cracking thedharmainitiative.org. *"lmpereir" is a spanish acronim for "el primer" which means "the first".

Widmore.com displayed a login screen, requesting 'Control No.', 'Access EP', and a 'Blast Door Map ID'. However, a look at the page source revealed that it's technically impossible to do a login.

Filmon" is Director of Sales & Marketing, however the image above it is clearly Lost producer, Damon Lindelof. It claims that Dr. Thomas Mittelwerk is one of the Board of Directors, as well as Anthony Cooper.

The Project Sparta links to a subsection of the website, which plays a small flash video. If clicked, it links to http//clickcaster.com/owa1/ OWA / LOST TV Weekly Podcasts. The Widmore Institute link goes to Minor imitation websites.com.com. "''The Widmore Institute is a think-tank retreat located near Kamloops, British Columbia''". At the bottom of the pages, it links to Minor imitation websites.com.com, another imitation website. {{list-stub}} CategoryWebsites|*Minor imitation CategoryFanon|*Minor imitation CategoryHoax|*Minor

Hi, I noticed you had a lot of signed comments with plain text. Is this intentional? If so, then cool.  However, just in case you didn't know, you can also type in four tildes ~~~~, and that gets translated into your signature with name linked to your userpage, and a timestamp. Cheers.

==Something on the UK front==
Hey, you checked out Other Girl's latest blog? Seems like there's something going down in the UK! She wants our rough locations for something, I've given her mine, suggest you do the same if you wanna finally see some outdoor glyph hunting action! --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 1052, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
Ill get onto that...shame its a copy of bad twin, I already have a copy! Thanks Nickb123! - UserDee4leeds 1100, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
Yeah I have it too, but I'm mainly concerned with the comment about knowing our rough locations, I mean this is only a theory but I think TPTB are asking her where they could put findable UK glyphs. In America you can stick em anywhere and they'll be found, but over here you need to know where your much smaller fanbase are. So adding your location will increase the chances of you getting a glyph virtually on your doorstep! --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 1102, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
I think this aswel, and it dosent take a rocket scientist to figure out where I want the outdoor stuff! - UserDee4leeds 1105, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
Yeah lol, well manc would do me fine. I hope something happens, I really wanna go out hunting instead of scouvering websites for a change. I'd love to just be walking along and find a glyph --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 1107, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
We can dream though...we can dream - UserDee4leeds 1108, 23 August 2006 (PDT)

== I need Help/Advice ==

As you can see on my Profile i have a boxes for my Top tens. I was wondering if there was a way to have them still there, exactly the same colour etc but without having to add about 100 empty lines below to stop external links going over the top. Any help would be grateful. --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0949, 8 September 2006 (PDT)
Try, underneath the episode boxes on your feed using the template {{Brclear}}, that should hopefully move all text after that point to after the boxes --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 0954, 8 September 2006 (PDT)
Thanks nick thats worked perfectly! --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0959, 8 September 2006 (PDT)
No problem, --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 1027, 8 September 2006 (PDT)

== Sky One headsup ==

Thanks for the notification. I've fixed it all now. I gotta admit that Sky One logo looks quite sexy on the site, compared to the Channel 4 one. Thankfully I have Sky, so I won't be missing anything! Not that i am as it is... *cough cough* ;-) --{{Userplkrtn/sig}} 0813, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
I was just suprised nobody had noticed. The big question is...What is going to happen to the UK's involvment with TLE2? (If any) --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0817, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
Be fair, its only been 90 minutes since the announcemen and i've already rejigged the entire site, and added a news story! 0) and I'm not allowed on Digital Spy since I got banned for complaining about a racist comment! TLE2 hasn't been confirmed yet. If it were to happen, I'm pretty sure Sky would get involved with it, and could give them even more scope, such as a Hanso channel via the red button interactive features. --{{Userplkrtn/sig}} 0824, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
No not the red button i have NTLTelewest! NOOOOOO! (Lets hope not) --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0826, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
Do you have TVDrive? Do you reckon you'll get it on-demand? --{{Userplkrtn/sig}} 0829, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
No and no idea...mabye? --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0834, 19 October 2006 (PDT)

== Since the front page is curvey... ==

...I was wondering if you wanted to use my orignal Curvey design for the TLE. --{{UserDee4leeds/sig}} 0931, 22 October 2006 (PDT)


== thanks m8 ==

hi im redacejr2. thanks mate for cleaning up my new page churches

Hey Dee, I got asked about being a caller on the Lost Initiative again, but still don't really want to. Unlike most though, I email the producer directly so was thinking of giving the golden opportunity to someone else? If you're interested, please message/email me ASAP with your best telephone number with which to reach ya, and I'll pass it along. Its being recorded on Tuesday 11am-12pm. Regards, --{{UserNickb123/sig}} 1531, 8 December 2006 (PST)

==Thanks from Pshyco Somkey Monster 2==

Thanks for filling in my poll table dude and some nice choices. Well done on getting Shannon out of the least favourites!

==Theories Templates==

*I think it's a very good idea and would be more than willing to assist you if you need. MY suggestion would be to ask a SysOp what they think, too. Have you seen {{ep}} yet (I haven't)? -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0105, 10 March 2007 (PST)

*OK, awesome. I cannot wait to see it. If it's as good as it looks, it'll be one hell of a ride! So yeah, let me know when we start doing it, if we start doing it, and I'll help. Are the templates going to be exactly like the ones on the main article page, only with the /theories extension on the links? Or are they going to be different? -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0111, 10 March 2007 (PST)

*Ok sounds good to me D Love the captions btw, are you gonna be doing any more? -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0115, 10 March 2007 (PST)

*You do have a point there. Either way, it would take a while. However, I really do like the idea of templates for theory pages. It looks like a great idea to implement. With that said, you should contact some other sysops or come in IRC later (since you already do pop in from time to time). Regards, {{UserMarik7772003/sig}} 0853, 11 March 2007 (PDT)

*Could you let me know how this all turns out please? Thanks, -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 1111, 11 March 2007 (PDT)

*OK, awesome, you gonna make new ones too? -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0201, 18 March 2007 (PDT)

*I'm sure they'll be fine. I've done all of the Main Character and the Minor Non Survivors. Now I'm going to do the Others. This is fun!!! ) Thanks for letting me help! -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0256, 18 March 2007 (PDT)

*Hehehehehehehe!! What can I say? I'm efficient.. ;) Btw, have you seen {{ep}} yet? And if so, is it good? -- {{UserLost_Soul/sig}} 0700, 18 March 2007 (PDT)

==UserMr. Crabby/Criticism of Lost==
Okay, I added the Sky One-Virgin Media info. If you could check it for me and make sure the info is accurate and I got the main points down that would be great. Thanks for your interest. --{{UserMr. Crabby/sig}} 1746, 2 June 2007 (PDT)
*Okay, thanks for looking that over, and thanks for giving me those links in the first place. Couldn't have done it without you. --{{UserMr. Crabby/sig}} 0711, 3 June 2007 (PDT)
*I moved Criticism of Lost from my user sub page, so now its an official article. Just wanted to say thanks for your help. --{{UserMr. Crabby/sig}} 1351, 3 June 2007 (PDT)

Thanks for putting up the transcript for "The Watch." You are a true credit to Lostpedia! -UserMilo Work Man, 9 November 2007 (PST)
