The main page of the website had a GIF of [[Bill Cipher]], with a version of the [[Gravity Falls Main Title Theme|theme song]] from the credits of "[[Dreamscaperers]]," looping in the background. Below the animation was a [[List of cryptograms#Combined cipher|combined cipher]] reading "'''9-21-4-9-22-19-6-18-15-6-5-4'''." By clicking on the cipher, it decoded to "'''OCTOBER FIRST'''." On October first, the cryptogram was removed from the site, and, from then on, a story titled "A Forgotten Tale" appeared when you click the picture of Bill Cipher.
   
*When the site launched the message said "IM WATCHING YOU."

The source code of the page contained [[Wikipedia:ASCII art|ASCII art]] image of Bill Cipher. In the letters and numbers comprising the image were messages that changed almost every day since its discovery. Words hidden in the image appeared to be written by one individual, while cryptograms were written as if snuck in by another. The original writer (presumably Bill) seems to not want the cryptographer, who may have been the Author, to get his messages out.

All animation is black magic.
This article contains information on a subject that is not considered canon in the Gravity Falls universe.

Search for the Blindeye was a non-Disney affiliated website[2] dedicated to Gravity Falls that launched on August 1, 2013. The name is based off the cryptogram deciphered in the end credits sequence of "Gideon Rises." It is currently unknown who ran the site.

The websiteEdit

The main page of the website had a GIF of Bill Cipher, with a version of the theme song from the credits of "Dreamscaperers," looping in the background. Below the animation was a combined cipher reading "9-21-4-9-22-19-6-18-15-6-5-4." By clicking on the cipher, it decoded to "OCTOBER FIRST." On October first, the cryptogram was removed from the site, and, from then on, a story titled "A Forgotten Tale" appeared when you click the picture of Bill Cipher.

The source code of the page contained ASCII art image of Bill Cipher. In the letters and numbers comprising the image were messages that changed almost every day since its discovery. Words hidden in the image appeared to be written by one individual, while cryptograms were written as if snuck in by another. The original writer (presumably Bill) seems to not want the cryptographer, who may have been the Author, to get his messages out.

After two updates on October first and second, the site went silent for over half a year and updated on June 1st, 2014. After fans noticed the update on June 2nd, updates started reappearing irregularly.

A new message was added on or before April 1, 2015.

The source code now contains an ASCII art image of Bill Cipher, though it previously showed the symbol of the Blind Eye Society, as seen in the show.

The original website is down and can only be viewed archived.
