DarkUFO - Lost

With the Season 5 finale upon us tonight we will once again be faced by the painfully long hiatus until Lost returns in 2010, I thought now would be a good time to let you know some of the things we have planned here to help pass the time a little less painfully. I hope you keep visiting the site during the hiatus and enjoy it as much as you can! It's the last Hiatus so we'll be making sure it's a good one :)

The Season 5 awards
These will start a few days after the finale. Once we have all the Nominations we will be narrowing down the nominations to 10 options in each category and then we can start voting. The Nomination phase will last for 1 week before the real voting starts.

Season 6 Fantasy League
G-Man and Myself will be running another fantasy league next season and shortly we will have the new rules and character groups posted along with a very simple and free form for you to create your team. The submissions will stay open as long as possible but as soon as any major spoilers start to come in for Season 6 we will close the registration process. So make sure you check back here often or subscribe via the RSS feeds or Twitter to avoid disappointment.

Character Cup
After the success last year of the Character Cup G-Man will be running another Character Cup which will include all the great new characters from Season 5. We will be using the very popular Brackets again so that you can try to predict the winner of each matchup in advance. A Prize for the winning predications will be a Season 5 DVD.So make sure you check back here often or subscribe via the RSS feeds or Twitter to avoid disappointment.

Episode Cup
We'll be running another Episode Cup during the Hiatus and I'm sure the various match-ups created by the virtual hat will spark as much heated debate as they did last year :). We will be using the very popular Brackets again so that you can try to predict the winner of each matchup in advance. A Prize for the winning predications will be a Season 5 DVD. So make sure you check back here often or subscribe via the RSS feeds or Twitter to avoid disappointment.

Prop Cup
Dharmageddon will be running another of his fun cups to find your favourite props and objects. Again we will be using the forums to narrow down the initial selections so make sure you have an account there.

Season 5 Fantasy and Predication League Results/Awards
After the finale and after we've collated all the points and results we will post the winners and the prizes for the both these competitions.

Season 5 DVD
We will be providing detailed reports on the Season 5 DVD and hope to be the first site to bring you artwork, deleted scenes, bloopers and other special items from the DVD. These will all be found in the DVD section.

Hiatus Rewatch
We hope to run another Hiatus Rewatch in the Forums again this year.

Other Site Sections
Obviously all the other sections of the site will remain open so keep your Fan Fiction, Theories and Polls etc coming in.

ARG 4
After the very successful 2nd Arg, Find815, and the disappointing Dharma Wants You, if ABC come up with a new Arg we will obviously create a new section of the site dedicated to it. Fingers crossed.

Lost Numbers Game
CJ Sonic will be running another Lost Numbers game with an improved format next season.

Comic Con
We will also be providing live coverage of the Lost Panel at Comic Con this year in the Live Lost section. If you're planning on attending please let me know so that you can become part of our live blogging team.

Quizzes and Games
After last years very successful Quiz, which had over 40,000 people take part we will try to run more of these in the future. We are also in talks with some flash game providers who we are trying to partner with to bring you some fun interactive Lost related games.

Suggestions
We're always open to fun suggestions for things to add to the site and to do during the Hiatus, so please feel free to email me direct, leave a comment here or on the Forums.

Vacation
I'll personally be taking a couple of vacations during the summer, but rest assured I have an excellent back up team in The ODI, G-Man, Dharmaggeddon etc who will cover for me during any time away.

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
