Sledgeweb's Lost Stuff, also known by the acronym SWLS and its URL lost.cubit.net, is a popular Lost site which posts entertainment news for fans. It was created by a user known as SledgeWeb. Included are over 400 index files of character profiles, locations, objects, mythology, and other items from the show, a section specializing in screencaptures of unusual investigations from the show, an ongoing death count and census of the island, a map, a chart of character connections, a detailed timeline, accounts of appearance of all numbers on the show, a Q&A section, and a forum. As of September 6, 2007, the forum has 9934 registered members with 305157 posts within 5264 threads.
SWLS also hosts a weekly brainteaser/Lost-related scavenger hunt game. It runs during the summer hiatus, in between seasons, and the winning award has so far been Season 1 and Season 2 DVDs. The Hunt: season 3 will be a slightly newer format, including a story line of sorts. It is slated to begin at the end of September 2007.
Description from Season 2 The Hunt:
INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS: You are welcome to play, but, you may have to help with the cost of shipping if you win. Also, the DVD format will likely be NTSC. If you require a different format, I will try to accomodate, but there are no guarantees.
SWLS STAFF: Since SWLS Staff don't have any insight into THE HUNT, and no additional benefits above normal users (in relation to THE HUNT), SWLS Staff will be allowed to participate in THE HUNT. However, SWLS staff members will not be eligible for any prizes. In the event a staff member wins, he or she will get the title of HUNT CHAMPION, but the DVD Set (or other prizes) will go to the highest placing normal user.
PREPARE YOURSELF! To do well in THE HUNT, you'll need to know your LOST facts. The more you know, the better. Use this site, and others as resources. You're best friend in THE HUNT will be the GOOGLE BAR at the top of every page on this site.
THE HUNT begins on June 21st at 9PM EST and will continue throughout the summer hiatus on Wednesday Nights at 9PM EST.
