what is this? a fan-made thing? a hidden image? a theory?

DarkUFO said...

Look at the labels ;)

ieatgreenfleas said...

ahh...very good dark lol. i looked at the picture and what like "what labels..." and then yeah... thanks. haha

DarkUFO said...

LOL :)

You can click on them as well and it will then filter all the posts just on that label. You can do the same in the Labels Drop Down Menu in the right had side bar.

That interesting and all, but yet again I think way too much is being read into nothing.

This is a stock image that was lifted straight off a stock image site, watermark and all - nothing more.

No misteries here... This image has all this stuff before it was used... I thought we have closed this discussion...

I really think we're over-reacting here...

If you look all the puctures of the designer the W & E directions are misplaced...

By the way... It's not clear yet if ABC has payed for using the image... Dreamtime is checking on this...

Jeff said...

I would bet they didn't, which is sloppy and unprofessional to say the least!

it made me really LOL that this person geniuenly considers this a legit theory because the snakes head reminds them of the harbour in honolulu.

Mary said...

someone over at the coconut internet contacted dreamtime about the image because it still contained their watermark which is used to protect against fraudulent use. I wouldn't theorize too much about it.

Just a Note... some Geodetic compass have the W and E inverted

Like this one..

so my english teacher was showing us CLOVERFIELD stuff today . and cause its jj abrams, of course it has Lost ARG-type websites connected. one of them is www.slusho.com (which takes you to slusho.jp), because the character in the movie is going to japan to work for Slusho. if you go on the site, you can see in the window header and the site itself that the slogan is:

"you can't drink just six"

SIX ?
oceanic SIX ?

does this help sway anybody towards my lost-cloverfield connection theory ? haha

docarzt said...

Wasn't it on this very site that the compass image was found on a licensed image site and the spiral was shown to be a water mark?

Jeff said...

Yeah, but no one seems to remember but a few of us.

DarkUFO said...

What does it matter? It's fun for people to speculate and researching things. This is a site for people to do just that, if you don't agree with the speculation fine, but don't ever knock people for having fun researching on their own.

J. G. said...

Hey Dark...

I meant no harm !!! I swear !!! LOL

Cheers

DarkUFO said...

LOL No worries :)

BlackSmoke@Lost said...

Yeah people, lighten' up.

:)

Jeff said...

I certainly wasn't trying to knock anyone for having fun with the research; sawyer840 did a most excellent job finding meaning in the logo.

I'm sorry if I came across as pessimistic - I meant nothing by it. As a web designer, I'm actually quite intrigued by the ARG team's oversight with the watermark, so I'm happy to talk about the logo. No offence intended.

Jaisen said...

Maybe ABC owns the company and they changed the water mark to some secrete "lost" symbol ala illuminati just to make people think harder opening up there minds and allowing the aliens to inject lost theories into them for them to post here...that or its time for me to go to bed..
