Whhhat's up guys, I'm dycaite and today's notice board post is a very special one, because it marks the 5th anniversary of the Lost Media Wiki!
 +
 
 +
It's hard to believe it's already been 5 whole years, but it has, and the things we have done as a community in that time have been nothing short of incredible. I touched on this briefly in the previous notice board post, but now it's well and truly time for me to get all sappy:
 +
 
 +
Without the amazing community of kind, hard working people here, the site would not be where it is today, period. A site like this only has longevity if it has a dedicated community behind it, and I honestly think we have one of the best communities on the internet; that is perhaps the thing that I am most proud of, having been able to bring together such a fine group of people, many of whom I am now privileged to be able to call my friends, some even best friends. So, thank you, all of you, for making the LMW what it is today. From the bottom of my heart, your support means a great deal me.
 +
 
 +
I wanna give a special thanks to all the staff and collaborators, old and new (including our newest mod-to-admin promotee [http://lostmediawiki.com/User:SpooferJahk SpooferJahk], please make him welcome in his new role), whose tireless unpaid work not only helps keep the site looking great and having a steady flow of new content, but also helps keep me from going under when things get tough; I value each and every one of you more than I can say.
 +
 
 +
I also wanna give a special shout out to our Patreon supporters - 2017 has been a financially strenuous year for me, and you guys have helped ensure that the wiki has stayed online all year round, for which I am immensely grateful.
 +
 
 +
Thank you to all the Discord regulars, for giving me somewhere to fit in just about every single day and be able to talk comfortably and be myself without having to worry about doing something embarrassing, and to all the people who have sent messages of encouragement over the years.
 +
 
 +
Thank you to everyone who believed that we could make an independently hosted LMW a reality and who stuck by our side during the more turbulent times.
 +
 
 +
Last but not least I wanna thank those of you who have been there for me on an emotional level (you guys know who you are); jumping into this journey of running a website was a brand new endeavour for me - never in my wildest dreams did I ever think the site would get this big, and I admittedly still have a lot to learn; it hasn't always been easy, but you guys have inspired me to keep the ball rolling and that is exactly what I intend to do for the foreseeable future.
 +
 
 +
These past 5 years have been an experience like no other, one that I wouldn't trade for the world; so here's to 50 more! :D
 +
 
 +
Before I close out today's post, we must of course go over the latest findings! Thanks to my rambling this post has probably gone on long enough, so let's get straight down to business (in no particular order)!

Hey guys, it's me, dycaite, back with another notice board post for you to all sink your teeth into; let's see what's been happening lately!
+
* A montage of clips from the original [[Drake and Josh (partially found unaired pilot of Nickelodeon sitcom TV series; 2003)|''Drake and Josh'' pilot]] has been found! The video, originally uploaded to YouTube by series creator Dan Schneider but soon thereafter made private, was found by LMW user afx6010, who discovered a link to the clip in question, downloaded it and mirrored it [https://mega.nz/#!JBdkCTiZ!cnq3otiKMmQDN7fjHiL7tzvV7zM0Sce30Axf0ovhKT0 via MEGA]! Big thanks to afx6010c for this discovery! A public YouTube mirror can be seen above.
 +
 
 +
* 4 minutes from the [[Zoom (partially found revival of children's TV series; 1999-2005)|''ZOOM'' test pilot]] have been found! Thanks for this one go out to Hayley, who appeared as a child in said pilot, and recorded a few minutes of it for YouTuber ZOOMfan1, who uploaded it, as seen above! Thanks guys!
 +
 
 +
* The [[Pokémon Learning League (partially found educational web series; 2006-2009)|''Pokémon Learning League'']] "Online Safety" episode has been recovered and restored! Props go to LMW user Gilblitz112 for locating the original via an old, joke-edited .swf file, and to YouTuber LARG for re-editing it back to its original state (or, as close as was possible); you can check it out above!
 +
 
 +
* The rare [[Doraemon (partially found Asian English dubs of anime series; late 1990s-early 2000s)|Asian English dubbed Doraemon '79 release "Virtual Holographic, Fiber-Optical Peep-Slope"]] has been found! It was acquired and uploaded by YouTuber Zarif Da Vocaloid and can be watched above in its entirety! Alternatively, a [https://mega.nz/#!T1FgnS4Y!SVLxjX3pnNprQJtjUz0k0pgg19_yrgkdrYswrZ7YYgs MEGA link is available here]; thanks Zarif Da Vocaloid!
  
* First up, some pretty huge news for Stanley Kubrick fans: the [[2001: A Space Odyssey (lost deleted scenes of science fiction film; 1968)|lost 17 minutes of footage from 2001: A Space Odyssey]] have been [http://bloomsmag.com/17-minutes-of-lost-2001-a-space-odyssey-footage-found/ found by Warner Brothers]! Sadly, WB haven't given any indication about a possible release of this footage (which was found in a salt-mine vault in Kansas), but at very least, it is now accounted for; hopefully they'll soon put it out in some form for everybody to see!
+
* A cache of previously lost [[The Secret Show (partially lost miscellaneous media from animated show; 2006-2008)|miscellaneous ''The Secret Show'' media]] has been found! Thanks to LMW user MK Inst, we now have 2 new Nicktoons American dubbed episodes (ie. 4 shorts - [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DRwi5gIy693cS7uWygejAxtX3AeQlsE8/view "Booger Ball"/"Wedgie Attack"] and [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SUKu9s72KojiUP8F3nPZKibrccFbGYzO/view "Flick The Switch"/"Giant Brain of Terror"]), the [https://drive.google.com/open?id=1T8Mg15rjMA3jsNC53trY_QU-IGYWq4Lq commentary track for "Flick The Switch"], the behind-the-scenes featurette [https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_deFLA1ojBlX_dTDUco59ZcUdWr8j6GU "The Sounds Of The Secret Show"] and the [https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oeNbXLLk-1AGgYnxTvY7ocRAA4Ry1-UB CBBC Premiere "Victor" teaser]! Thanks again to MK Inst for the provision of these materials!
  
* Redditor Carpediemsnuts has uncovered a VHS tape with a [https://www.reddit.com/r/anime/comments/7813d4/so_my_dad_once_mentioned_hed_voiced_an_anime_in/ rare MTV UK dub of Doraemon on it]! Having inherited the tape from his late father (who voiced Doraemon in said dub), Carpediemsnuts has since posted a small snippet of the tape [https://twitter.com/CarpeDiemsNuts/status/922889842949787648 on Twitter] (mirrored via YouTube above). Now, before anyone gets too excited, no, this is not from the famed 1973 series, but instead the 1979 series. It's still a very interesting discovery; here's hoping the whole tape finds its way online soon!
+
* The English dub of [[Dingo Pictures (partially found movies from German animation studio and English dubs; 1993-2006)|Dingo Pictures' ''Wabuu the Little Raccoon'']] has been acquired by YouTuber Phelous, who has uploaded portions of said dub in a recent review, seen above; thanks Phelous! Here's hoping the full thing sees the light of day soon!
  
* 2 hours of fan-filmed footage from the [[WWF Xperience (found pay-per-view event footage; 1996)|1996 WWF Xperience]] has found its way to YouTube! This marks the first time these matches have been seen online in over 20 years, making it a pretty big deal for wrestling fans; big thanks to YouTuber The Wrestling Collector for the provision of this footage, which can be seen above!
+
Special thanks go to [[User:Reynard|Reynard]] (aka Gaucelm) and [[User:RSTVideo|RST]] for today's respective celebration artworks (and to all the fans who submitted new and/or allowed us to use their old LMW-tan artwork for the collage), and to [[User:Ryanskii|Ryan]] for helping us keep track of the recent finds!
  
* And last but not least, Randy has released 3 new episodes of the Lost Media Chronicles! The first of these introduces new part-time host Amanda, who, for her first and second episodes, delivers two pretty great videos; let's all show her support! And for everyone who was worried that Randy had buggered off forever, you need not, for he returns for episode 53; thanks to both Randy and Amanda for these great episodes, you can check out all 3 via the above embeds!
+
That's it for this one, until next time I hope you all have a great run up to the holiday season and just, once again, thanks to each and every one of you for being a part of this community and making it what it is today; it wouldn't be here without you guys.
  
That's gunna do it for now, but as we edge ever closer to the LMW's 5th anniversary in ten days' time, I just wanted to take a moment to show my gratitude to each and every one of you. The site wouldn't be what it is today without the support of you guys, so thank you all very, very much; every kind word I've received about the site in its 5 years of existence means a lot to me and it helps to keep me going when things get difficult. Anyway, enough sappiness from me, I'll catch ya's all next time for anniversary celebrations; until then, take it easy!
+
Cya 'round!

Notice board


HAPPY 5 YEARS OF LMW! (Added 30 Nov 2017)


30th nov lmw birthday.png
Lmw tan collage.jpg

Whhhat's up guys, I'm dycaite and today's notice board post is a very special one, because it marks the 5th anniversary of the Lost Media Wiki!

It's hard to believe it's already been 5 whole years, but it has, and the things we have done as a community in that time have been nothing short of incredible. I touched on this briefly in the previous notice board post, but now it's well and truly time for me to get all sappy:

Without the amazing community of kind, hard working people here, the site would not be where it is today, period. A site like this only has longevity if it has a dedicated community behind it, and I honestly think we have one of the best communities on the internet; that is perhaps the thing that I am most proud of, having been able to bring together such a fine group of people, many of whom I am now privileged to be able to call my friends, some even best friends. So, thank you, all of you, for making the LMW what it is today. From the bottom of my heart, your support means a great deal me.

I wanna give a special thanks to all the staff and collaborators, old and new (including our newest mod-to-admin promotee SpooferJahk, please make him welcome in his new role), whose tireless unpaid work not only helps keep the site looking great and having a steady flow of new content, but also helps keep me from going under when things get tough; I value each and every one of you more than I can say.

I also wanna give a special shout out to our Patreon supporters - 2017 has been a financially strenuous year for me, and you guys have helped ensure that the wiki has stayed online all year round, for which I am immensely grateful.

Thank you to all the Discord regulars, for giving me somewhere to fit in just about every single day and be able to talk comfortably and be myself without having to worry about doing something embarrassing, and to all the people who have sent messages of encouragement over the years.

Thank you to everyone who believed that we could make an independently hosted LMW a reality and who stuck by our side during the more turbulent times.

Last but not least I wanna thank those of you who have been there for me on an emotional level (you guys know who you are); jumping into this journey of running a website was a brand new endeavour for me - never in my wildest dreams did I ever think the site would get this big, and I admittedly still have a lot to learn; it hasn't always been easy, but you guys have inspired me to keep the ball rolling and that is exactly what I intend to do for the foreseeable future.

These past 5 years have been an experience like no other, one that I wouldn't trade for the world; so here's to 50 more! :D

Before I close out today's post, we must of course go over the latest findings! Thanks to my rambling this post has probably gone on long enough, so let's get straight down to business (in no particular order)!

Phelous' Wabuu the Little Raccoon English dub review
  • A montage of clips from the original Drake and Josh pilot has been found! The video, originally uploaded to YouTube by series creator Dan Schneider but soon thereafter made private, was found by LMW user afx6010, who discovered a link to the clip in question, downloaded it and mirrored it via MEGA! Big thanks to afx6010c for this discovery! A public YouTube mirror can be seen above.
  • 4 minutes from the ZOOM test pilot have been found! Thanks for this one go out to Hayley, who appeared as a child in said pilot, and recorded a few minutes of it for YouTuber ZOOMfan1, who uploaded it, as seen above! Thanks guys!
  • The Pokémon Learning League "Online Safety" episode has been recovered and restored! Props go to LMW user Gilblitz112 for locating the original via an old, joke-edited .swf file, and to YouTuber LARG for re-editing it back to its original state (or, as close as was possible); you can check it out above!
  • The English dub of Dingo Pictures' Wabuu the Little Raccoon has been acquired by YouTuber Phelous, who has uploaded portions of said dub in a recent review, seen above; thanks Phelous! Here's hoping the full thing sees the light of day soon!

Special thanks go to Reynard (aka Gaucelm) and RST for today's respective celebration artworks (and to all the fans who submitted new and/or allowed us to use their old LMW-tan artwork for the collage), and to Ryan for helping us keep track of the recent finds!

That's it for this one, until next time I hope you all have a great run up to the holiday season and just, once again, thanks to each and every one of you for being a part of this community and making it what it is today; it wouldn't be here without you guys.

Cya 'round!
