I found this place after I watched the Nickelodeon 10 Years compilation video. After I saw that there were around 10 pilots that there where no information about, I looked all over the internet for information. I ended up finding the LMW, and after finding that there still wasn't information, ended up looking around the site. I then found the article for A Day With Spongebob Squarepants, which ended up getting me into lost media hunting.
ADWS also drew me in; I remember when the cover was plastered on the top of the front page and I thought it was a soft-core porno or something.

Joined in during the rise of popularity of the "A day with spongebob squarepants" search, though I do not remember where I heard about it from. It was likely Blameitonjorge, because I don't remember seeing Pan pizza's until after I had joined the search, though my memory is fairly hazy on that part. When I joined, I believe the original A day with spongebob squarepants page on the old wikia was only about 1/8th of the length or less of what it is today. The search had gotten about as far as finding the actual name of the company that could have produced it way before we found out it was never made at all. Think it might have been before hastingsanon even showed up. The most I contributed to the page was about 1 line, pitifully.
A few years ago I saw an article about lost cinema productions and it didn't mention this site, but the article got me interested in some of the titles. So I googled some, and this site mentioned the lost titles, so I went here, got sucked in and found that it had a treasure trove of info on all sorts of lost media. I distinctly remember being very interested in the site and it's concept.
It was after I saw blameitonjorge's documentaries on the searches for Clockman and A Day with Spongebob. I was so interested that I tried finding some lost Disney Channel Wand ID's for the Lost Media Archive (very sacreligious I know). I stayed on Lost Media Archive for a while then I decided "screw it, I'll get with the REAL lost media team". I created an account here on LMW and I was hooked ever since.

I learned about it from watching lost media-related videos on YouTube. While I can't remember the exact video that first brought the Wiki to my attention, it was most likely one made by blameitonjorge.

Quite honestly, I don't remember.
I want to say one of BlameItOnJorge's videos got recommended to me (I think it was the lost/unreleased gaming video) and I clicked around for a while until I ultimately forgot about the forums for a good year or so.
my very first time hearing about lost media was like many others, through blameitonjorge. I've always somewhat lurked and heard about the search effort, but I've decided that I wanted finally enter the community and do my best to help wherever I can. admittedly I'm new to the forums and community as a whole, but lost media has enamoured me forever now; and now I have the courage to join in and annoy all my loved ones about it.
My girlfriend is very much into obscure media/any kind of Media really, we both have an interest in game development so we would frequently look at the cutting room floor and all of the interesting pages on there.
Then she started talking about videogames that got lost to time and while researching it she found the lost media wiki, linked me and I visited on off for a while then finally started reading articals actively recently because of free time. (Thanks quarantine!)
