[edit] Checklist, 2008

On June 27, 2008, Whysoserious.com was updated to include a montage of various Joker-related websites, and a checklist with links to every major Joker trail in the ARG. The accomplished tasks are crossed out on the list.

  • When the page was first discovered, the list had three tasks that were not crossed out. All items are now crossed off, which implies that the game has ended.
(screencap as of June 30)

[edit] Montage

Included in the montage are images of various ARG elements, linking them to that particular page. The elements include newspaper clippings, bowling shoes, a personality quiz, Gotham map, phone directory (with every URL and phone number of the ARG-related Gotham businesses), a cake infested with maggots, the Whysoserious.com/Happytrails ad, the Atasteforthetheatrical.com ad, a vandalized Joker card, a Jokerized portrait of Lincoln, bloodied Polaroids of people wearing Joker makeup, and a Jokerized dollar bill.

[edit] Police Reports

Clicking on items 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 brings up confidential GPD reports about each of the events. Transcripts of these reports can be seen on each event's respective page.
