—Only if you are a retarded fanboy.
You might think that the EDiots who are involved in the creation and maintenance of Encyclopedia Dramatica have very little when it comes to "a life." You are very correct, however there are varying levels of "a life" that a person can achieve. The lowest level of not having "a life" has been attained by the editors of Lostpedia, who go to such great lengths to discuss petty and insignificant trivialities, they can be considered just below such failures in fandom as Twitards, Trekies, and even Furries.
—Somebody should introduce this guy to Vandalbot.
Lostpedia was founded in September of 2005 to give a place for all "Losties" to discuss why Kate wasn't humping Jack in any given episode. The founder, a nerd named Kevin Croy, wanted to give basement dwelling idiots a place to organize the massive amounts of crap that the writers of Lost foisted off on them, and his level of success or failure can be measured by the amount of bullshit content his users cram into his Wiki.
This section showcases just how deep into the faggotry-hole the editors of Lostpedia are willing to go. For the purposes of saving space, only two sections will be discussed as there is not enough room to copy and past all of that wiki on to this wiki. While these examples are considered excellent sources for illustrating the nerd-level involved, you are encouraged to go and discover more faggotry on your own.
Hurley's DPE (Dudes Per Episode)
The following table, found on Lostpedia's entry for Dude, discusses just how many times the character Hurley uttered the phrase during the run of the show. This level of attention paid to such minutia pretty much sums up the dedication these nerds have to their favorite show. Most tragically, somebody took the time to actually code this table, and then even came up with the measurement called "DPE" which when translated from nerdish, means "Dudes Per Episode."
|Ep 1||Ep 2||Ep 3||Ep 4||Ep 5||Ep 6||Ep 7||Ep 8||Ep 9||Ep 10||Ep 11||Ep 12||Ep 13||Ep 14||Ep 15||Ep 16||Ep 17||Ep 18||Ep 19||Ep 20||Ep 21||Ep 22||Ep 23||Ep 24||Total||Average DPEs|
Not impressed with that table of Dudes? Prepare to go further into the sinkhole of failure, as somebody actually watched every episode and figured out every nickname the character Sawyer ever called anybody...including minor characters who spent less than five minutes of screen time during the show's six years run. This level of attention to detail, while staggering, is also so utterly mind-numbing, any actual good content found on Lostpedia is overwhelmed by the wave after wave of faggotry.

Fans of the show often will discuss some of the mysterious happenings that go on. This sort of behavior is healthy and considered normal. Lostpedia editors, however, spend so much time arguing and inspecting insignificant events, it must be considered a sort of psychosis. They have even provided an exhaustive portal for such behavior which delves into such small, inane events, their level of devotion can be considered retarded. How to know if you are in too deep:
- You spend more than one minute rationalizing anything that happened ever on the show.
- You actually looked up the meanings of Jack's tattoos.
- You have argued about the feasibility of time travel because you have been involved in an "incident" in a "hatch."
- You know what the numbers 4,8,15,17,23,32 mean.
- You have nicknamed your basement "The Swan."
- You believe that, somewhere, in the South Pacific, there is a place that can cure your Erectile Disfunction.
- You helped edit and correct this page.
Lost fans love to talk about the excellent writing found on the show. Lostpedia has an exhaustive portal dedicated to the literary techniques employed by the writers. Before discussing these techniques, one must consider that the show was basically going no where for five years before somebody told the production staff to get it over with before the show ran out of funding. The resultant rush to "tie up all the loose ends" only made fans enraged, confused, and distraught. Nevertheless, the geeks behind Lostpedia lost no time trying to explain all the bullshit that happened during the show's six year run.
Some things that you may find interesting...or you may find stretching reality a bit:
- As assumptions and inferences can be colored by an individual's culture, biases, experiences, etc., a perceived change from those assumptions might be considered a plot twist to that person.
- The most tired and overused plot device known to man. Does Lost use it? YOU BET! Does Lostpedia discuss it? AND HOW!
- Foreshadowing? Holy Christ, the whole show is nothing but one foreshadow flowing into the next. Finally, the show ends, foreshadowing a lucrative sequel movie and a shitpile of action figures.
Just like every other website running the Mediawiki software, the best parts are not the articles, but the ridiculous comments that go on behind the scenes on article's talk pages. Mixed between the bickering and unabashed sycophancy, you will find some extraordinary gems of imbecilic splendor and massive amounts of USI.
—User Dposse who got banned for arguing about jokes.
—Who. Gives. A. Shit?, 
—Nobody bothered to discuss this. I wonder why?, 
—Some fucking moron on the main page talk page., 
The Lostpedia forum is a hive of nitpicking, second guessing, and general arguments about silly things that do not matter to normal people. Any place where you can gather together so much nerdery, it is definately a place where you are going to find drama, USI, and opinions that are out of whack with reality. Within, you will find idiots crying because somebody used the wrong image on a particular page, re-watch discussions where people talk the show into the dirt (not once, but many times ad nauseam), and the insipid "suggestions for improvement" that every idiot on the internet feels that he should make to a site's administrators. Also, you will find a lot of bans...because that is what internet forums are for.
The Lostpedia forum seems to have spawned its own meme. The Jackface is where you take a picture and use either Photoshop or Mspaint to put Jack's face on anything you can find. Once this is done, post your work on the forums to the insane tittering of a billion idiots.
While most Encyclopedia Dramatica articles incorporate one or many videos into their pages, there is no need to hotlink Lostpedia's extensive list of Youtube failure. This is because they have listed every single video found on the site for easy perusal. Pay close attention to the fan made bullshit that is found there.
