[OOG] ABZ
sorry abz is[not] official

Abz is in game... reason : It had the name of the movie listed over 2 weeks prior ...

There is NO way they would of had that info if they were not in game..


edit to change tag to [OOG] and add the word [not]-the site creators have apologized so no doubt about this one. ~rose

I don't know what you're talking about.....the site wasn't even created until 7/10. Very clearly OOG.

I am telling you
They are ingame

I am telling you they HAVE to be in Game...

This was the post from 29-07-2007

"Really what’s in a name? A Week or two? A few days …"

Then a week later they trademark the name 'overnight'

Are you freaking kidding me? You don't think that Paramount is involved? How else would they freaking know the name a week before the trademark is published.

Just because they registered the name because they thought of something else to push out as a clue late in the game doesn't mean they didn't register it.

http://www.abz3293.com already conviced me they are in-game.. as I noted earlier.. they published the clue more than a week prior to trademarking it.

Either they are in game.. or it's someone that works there or is a mole.. because no one can yet explain to me how they knew the name PRIOR to the trademark.

Overnight was trademarked on July 18th.

Thanks to Malemunyon, we knew about it at noon on july 30th.

abz3293.com claims their first post was on June 10th. The whois information shows that the sight was registered on July 10th. Since they've chosen to misrepresent one fact, the onus falls on them to prove that they aren't misrepresenting any ensuing claims.

It's not ingame, I'll tell you why.

In an ingame site, the site will never release information a week before it happens. As you can tell by most sites we've discovered, nothing is supposed to know about the movie.

The people on myspace? They didn't tell us in advance that they were going to be attacked by a monster or anything about the movie.

The slusho website? It doesn't tell us anything about the movie.

Fact is that when it's IG, it's supposed to not look IG.

Again, I point out that the site was created on July 10th. Had it been IG, it would have been registered long before that. Also, after we found it (and you know Abrams has his people reading this forum), Abrams said that the only IG site that we'd even found was Slusho. Thus, officially OOG.

Slusho is obviously IG, but Abrams hasn't said anything one way or another on it.

Abrams does NOT have people reading this forum. Unforum is not that popular.

And you think people on the popular ones, like IMDB, haven't found the ABZ site? If Abrams doesn't have people on ths one (which I'm actually pretty sure he does), he's at least got 'em on that. He knows we've found ABZ, and has said the only IG one we've found is the Slusho site.

Seriously people, it's OOG. It was an interesting find, but easily debunked. Just look at the whois, that solves everything.

Or they're an obvious gamejack and you're just gullible.

That option seems the most likely.

I agree. This is a small place where nerds flock, and it turns into an echo chamber from that point forward. The big-boys and popular peeps turn into giants amongst midgets.

Actually, that was from the AICN reference but what he said was that the 1-18 site was the only thing we've found so far of all the fun stuff they set out for us to find - not specifically slusho. Anyway, it was the reference email Abrams sent to Knowles about the whole thing and the same one in which he specifically stated that other sites, like Ethan Haas (that he specifically names directly) has absolutely nothing to do with them or what they have going on, which is when EH was officially dismissed as unrelated.

The timing on that clears it up without invalidating his statement. The email to AICN had taken place prior to the slusho site find (on here), and so Abrams had not been aware at the time he made the comment in the email that anyone had since found slusho also.

Those behind slusho, however, were well aware that slusho had been found simply because of the hits on the urchin tracker.
