It looks to me a list of things to fear. You could find a greek root and and -phobia and describe most everything on here.

"Everyone I love will hurt me" sounds like paranoia. Though that's pretty typical if this is another Slendy-related work.

"Footsteps in the dark" seems oddly specific compared to the rest. Especially considering we had "darkness" right before it.

"You" is also curious. Is it referring to a specific person, or is it referring to everyone who is somehow reading the database of this person's fears?

Of course, "the ark" is what really stands out among all these.

Local Clear Lakes Affiliate Reacts to Buyout

Clear Lakes 88, a local affiliate station for Clear Lakes Communications, was supposedly never informed about ongoing buyout negotiations, according to a source from station management

The source, who has requested to remain anonymous, says that the buyout announced three days ago was “...a complete surprise to me.” although they were “well aware of CLC’s financial challenges.”

“I wish I could have been given a heads up of some sort”, the source later said, “We recently had a new hire that uprooted their family to come here. Had I’ve known that this buyout was in the works, I never would have approved it.”

Clear Lakes 88 was the youngest station affiliate, and has been in operation since 1999. So far, it is the only one of the nine affiliates that has given a comment on the issue. An official statement has yet to be released.



Along with pictures below it, all uploaded onto imgur. (would embed into post, but they're huge)

Nothing interesting in the source code.

No discussion?


Looks to be merely an introduction of sorts, asking as to look a this broadcast by those who bought out clear lakes. No super apparent hidden frames, and nothing that obviously needs decoding.


Now we wait. Inside, of course, how else will we see what's important?

Well, I did see a blip that looked like Slendy (white head and shirt shape).

As for the pictures listed above, the second one made me think of the Rake, and the third has letters that looked to my like they might spell ALICE.

Also, were there any interesting sounds or music? I can't get any sound on my computer, so all I have is images.

Photos on the eckva.net/alis page... On that last one, anyone else seeing a face tucked into the lower right corner?

Yeah that's definitely a thing. I can't think of any significance to it, though.
Doesn't look that similar to the face in the second alis picture.

Significance of "alis"? Maybe connected to "Alice" in the third picture

But, yeah, as an intro goes, nothing too intense. Just a heads up that MH is starting up again.

I'm surprised no one has talked about the fact that on that alis page on ecvka.net says Clear Lakes 88, rather than 44.

What if there's 88 at least and the end of cl44 was the outbuying of Clear Lakes Stations and eckvanet is child project of the clear lakes stations made by whoever bought cl stations

Hm, interesting. So, to summarise what the article tells us about the structure of Clear Lakes:

Obvious:
- Clear Lakes Communications is the parent company, which runs (or at least used to run) a number of local affiliates.
- Clear Lakes 88 was one of those affiliates, and it seems safe to infer that Clear Lakes 44 was one too.
- There were 9 affiliates.

Less obvious:
- This organisation seems to be a little elderly, at least as far as media organisations go in this day and age. Clear Lakes 88 was the youngest affiliate, but it's been in operation since 1999. That means that for the past 17 years or so the CLC network simply hasn't expanded at all, which may be a sign that it was stagnating, or struggling against business issues, or may have intentionally remained at that level.
- Based on the two affiliates we are aware of, Clear Lakes 44 and Clear Lakes 88, it seems that the affiliates had a fairly consistent naming scheme.

So, I guess perhaps an early puzzle would be to work out what the numbers of the other affiliates are? If the "two matching digits" thing is deliberate and we assume they started at 00 (so that 88 would be the ninth), let's see what googling finds:

Clear Lakes 00 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 11 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 22 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 33 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 55 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 66 - Nothing relevant.
Clear Lakes 77 - Only relevant thing found was a tumblr post from Jay warning people that someone is using this name for a gamejack and we shouldn't trust them, especially since they seem to be soliciting people's phone numbers.

UMM

Has anyone taken a look here:

http://eckva.net/7777/


I don't know if this has stayed like this or is the updated version of an old site page or what but definitely weird

"you and Ark and happiness" is what stands out to me as well as 7777

hmmm I fear Troy's repeating CL44's mistake of starting this series out with a bunch of random "mysterious" shite with no hook. Isn't convincing me to be optimistic
