PostSubject: A Generally Comprehensive Timeline from the wiki   Mon May 30, 2011 1:10 pm

Alright, lost what the heck I was planning to post a topic of, and decided to post a basic overview of what has happened so far. This is a copy past from the wiki, and as such seems to be missing any events that occured before the date of July 23rd, 2009. This is going to be a big one people, so grab a beverage or something and get comfortable. The timeline on the wiki is in a backwards format, meaning that the most recent events are at the top, and the oldest reside at the bottom.

Marble Hornets Summary

Prior to July 23, 2009, when Youtube User totheark showed up, most of the attention was focused on the Marble Hornets videos and The Entries. They told of a boy named Alex Kralie, who was a film student who wrote and was directing his movie Marble Hornets until he suddenly began buying absurd amounts of tapes and recording himself at all times. This occurred back in 2006, and he appears to have been followed by a figure resembling Slender Man. After that, he freaked out and canceled the project, only saving the tapes because his friend and cameraman Jay convinced him to hand over the tapes before Alex left for another school and Jay never heard from him again. Now, in 2009, Jay has found them again in his house and is uploading the interesting bits to youtube.

Comprehensive Timeline

June 7, 2011: "I had forgotten about the external hard drive I found in the hotel safe, I should be looking through it at the same time as these tapes." ~ Jay

June 3, 2011: "That's possible, but I have a remote for it. It's not like I'd have to fumble with keys if I had to unlock the door in a hurry." ~ Jay, in response to LeahsGotIt's comment about the car door locks. Later, he tweeted a response to raiiban's request for a status update: "I'm okay for the time being. I don't want to advertise my location too much."

June 2, 2011: "I doubt it was Tim in #41. It was only a week after Alex incapacitated him. No way he'd be walking by then." ~ Jay. He later tweeted, in response to adf___'s question regarding the dating of the tapes, "The ones I found in the hotel safe are numbered (although a handful aren't). I also told Alex "It's been over a week" in Entry #39." Later that night, totheark uploads the Indicator Video.

June 1, 2011: "No clue who that could have been in Entry #41. Why wasn't my car door locked?" ~ Jay.

May 26, 2011: "Finished the Entry 40 tape. Something there that I don't like. Entry 41 will be uploaded soon." ~ Jay. Later, he tweeted, "Weird. Problem with the video I've never had before. Should be uploaded in about an hour or so." A couple of hours later, he posted a link to Entry 41.

May 25, 2011: "I've been avoiding continuing the tape from Entry 40, but I can't put it off forever. For all I know, there could be nothing left on it." ~ Jay. Later, in response to BranRainey's question regarding Jessica, Jay tweeted, "Maybe. Who knows where she is now, though." Lastly, he finally got around to linking to the Intermission Video, saying "Like clockwork, ToTheArk responded last week."

May 16, 2011: totheark uploads the Intermission Video.

May 4, 2011: "40 is uploading to youtube. I really don't want to watch it again." ~ Jay. Early in the morning, he posted a link to Entry 40.

May 3, 2011: "I saw the latest ToTheArk response a day or two after it was posted. Forgot to link it here. https://youtu.be/VrvjDtghdk0". ~ Jay.

March 29, 2011: "Just woke up in my car, near the red tower. Don't remember how I got here. This is a long way from where I was." ~ Jay. He later tweeted, "The tapes aren't with me, and the footage I copied to my laptop has apparently been deleted. I need to get back. Fast."

March 23, 2011: Someone uploads enttry 37 from Jay's Youtube account, similar to what was done a year ago with Entry ######.

March 21, 2011: Late in the evening, Jay tweeted, "Trying to upload entry #37, but I can't sign in to youtube." He then asked, "People that follow me: Is youtube letting you sign in?" These tweets continued into the early morning. "Judging by the response, I'm the only one having this problem…" "I may have temporarily forgotten my password." "I keep trying different ones but nothing's working." "Come on! http://twitpic.com/4c08b0" "I've tried all the passwords I've ever used. None are working." "Why can't I remember!" "I can't use the forgotten password feature because it's linked to aan old email address that I also don't remember the password of." "I have the worst hheadache right now.." "Keep thnking I'm hearing things." ".hea'ds poudning." "sllee pno.w"

March 20, 2011: "The last few tapes have just been of me driving around by myself. Where did Alex go?" ~ Jay. He later tweeted, "Found something that makes me not want to go through the rest of these tapes. Headache. Laying down for now. Uploading it tomorrow."

March 19, 2011: "Just now saw the ToTheArk response. Guess whoever it is knows Alex's phone number. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOou1wxXu4o" ~ Jay. He later tweeted, "@Theyeballkid I didn't see the numbers in the end until now. Thanks for saving me some time."

March 1, 2011: "I think the tape from entry #35 was damaged when the camera was dropped. Spending tonight trying to fix it. More footage could be on it." ~ Jay

February 15, 2011: "Going to try and sleep. If I decide to upload this stuff, it'll be tomorrow." ~ Jay. Jay later tweets "I've decided to post it. Entry #35 should be uploaded in about 30 minutes." However, Youtube experienced technical difficulties shortly thereafter, preventing the video from being seen for several hours, prompting Jay to tweet "Youtube is in maintenance mode right now. It will probably be a little longer than I thought to upload." After about two more hours, Jay tweets "Still in maintenance mode. Nothing I can do."

The wikidot has been updating every time a new entry, totheark response, or twitter update has been posted. O.o Complete with speculations and such.

EDIT: Okay, at least the time-lines and main page. I don't know about character pages or anything else.

I would follow this ARG if I wasn't so easily freaked out by the idea of the videos. That being said the timeline at least gives me a general idea of what's going on and for that I thank you. Batman Smile
