Lostpedia has begun to get reports from Comic Con. At the Octagon Global Recruiting booth, fans are given a waiver form and an appointment time by DHARMA staff (all with Australian accents). At their appropriate time, they can enter the booth, which has cameras on the ceiling (these appear to feed outside the booth so observers can see what is going on). With a set of headphones and television equipment, participants are shown images or given a series of questions, and have to say what first pops into their heads. Some of the images in particular are reportedly very bizarre. Questions are then asked such as "You just took away a child's favorite toy. Why?" Reportedly, fans have an option of what type of test they can take by choosing a different name. One fan claimed that one of the test names was called "Europa" (a character in Greek mythology who was seduced by Zeus and taken from her family to the Island of Crete).
The test apparently lasts about five minutes, and upon completion you are told whether you passed or not (it's likely everyone will "pass" as part of the ARG). Participants are then told to make sure they see the Lost panel on Saturday, and have their test sheet with them (they apparently make a point of having your own sheet with you). They are also given an ID card, which includes special details which can, from July 28th, be entered on Dharmawantsyou.com to allow those who took the test to register for "phase 2" of the application process.
The legal declaration form participants must sign finally revealed the name of the ARG project, Dharma Initiative Recruiting Project or simply known as "The Project".
