  1. Prizes for donors?

    There isn't anything built in to your donation page to manage that, but your page IS customizable. You could list out your our tiers and prizes, etc. Be sure to customize your page! Here over to our Discord and see if our community has other best practices too!
  2. Gaming News:Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Revealed

    Oh goodness, I do love some Vermintide. Bring on Chaos!!!
  3. Who? If you've signed up for Extra Life or have made a donation, then you've interacted with DonorDrive! A leader in cloud based peer-to-peer donations DonorDrive|Global Cloud helps us do what we do #ForTheKids by providing a digital means to collect donations online for Extra Life, Dance Marathon and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada. What? We want to talk about using JSON information! More specifically, we want to talk about HOW you are using it to improve your fundraising. JSON data is used to capture information about Extra Life participants, that then can be output in applications for live stream alerts or display team member rankings. As our donation platform, DonorDrive is looking to improve upon the use of this data and they want to hear from you, the Extra Life Community! Next steps: Questions from you, our community: Are you a developer? Have your created an application to interact with DonorDrive? Now is the time to fill this forum with your questions about the DonorDrive platform and how you can better access Extra Life participant data for your projects. The DonorDrive team will field your questions here, explain some of the upcoming enhancements. This is a great time to find out more and be a part of enhancing the streaming experience when fundraising for Extra Life. Live AMA via Discord TBD! But soon we will schedule a live AMA with the DonorDrive devs themselves!
  4. Xsplit reward

    You can definitely start a new thread! That's a great idea. Another best practice would be to use these items as donation incentives.
  5. Hey @Amy! That's not great! The only thing I could think of is to be sure that your donation alert is "Enabled". Go to "StreamLabs" > "Dashboard" > "Alertbox" > make sure that the widget URL has the "Donation" checked > scroll down to the "Donations" tab and ensure that its' "Enabled". Are you adding the widget URL to your broadcasting software? If not be sure that you copy the widget URL and add it to OBS, XSplit or whichever software you are using. Beyond that, you'd want to reach out to StreamLabs support for further troubleshooting. We'll get you up and running! Be sure to swing by our Discord and the Streaming Tips channel, the community is bound to be able to help.
  6. Gaming News:IGN Acquires Humble Bundle

    Hey @Naomi N. Lugo And Extra Life , who also is a among one of their charity partners.
  7. I can't be a platinum fundraiser

    Thanks @Xeserox! @Edesonism, support can take up to three business days to respond and they get particularly busy this time of year. So if you reached out this week, I am sure they will be in contact soon. I'll connect with them to be sure your ticket gets some attention though! We'll get it figured out one way or another!
  8. Multimedia Kit (All Files)

    Thanks for the heads up @DonnieV, extended use of looping the video was likely the culprit. Playing the video and then having a break screen w/ a countdown is probably a better best practice.
  9. Download the Extra Life videos?

    Ack! Thanks for letting us know @DonnieV! That really shouldn't have happened and the first we've heard of this occurring. We'll make note of this certainly. EDIT: I noticed your other comment on the download page. Looping a video more than a few times is likely the culprit, and on a non-Extra Life day too. None the less it's still good to know!
  10. Restaurant Fundraiser

    The check can be made out to Extra Life or Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with the team name and the team captain's name as it appears on your profile and send it to us directly. Getting your name on that check is critical! Children's Miracle Network ATTN: Extra Life 205 West 700 SouthSalt Lake City, UT 84101
  11. Xsplit reward

    XSplit is software that is used to broadcast your gameplay to the internet. Broadcasting (live streaming) is absolutely optional for Extra Life, but a great way to share what you're doing for the kids! https://www.xsplit.com/
