The OpAphid ARG (commonly referred to as just OpAphid) was once the official Alternate Reality Game of lonelygirl15. It started as the solo project of Glenn Rubenstein. When the Creators saw how much talent Glenn had, they hired him as a part of the lonelygirl15 crew and OpAphid became canon.
The OpAphid ARG featured puzzles, drops videos, and regular YouTube profile updates. Later, after Glenn and lonelygirl15 parted ways, the OpAphid ARG became a part of the backstory of Glenn's new project, Redearth88.
On August 26th, 2009, a post on Inside LG15 announced that the OpAphid ARG was once again part of the LG15 Franchise, and that OpAphid audiovisuals would be provided to the winner of the second season of LG15: The Show Is Yours. It was also announced that Glenn would be back for the judging of the next season of TSIY. However, the winner, LG15: Outbreak, chose not to integrate the OpAphid ARG into the story aside from a throwaway line in the final episode.
