  1. Need Help

    Further to Hansard, I'd double down on advertising, whether that be with your local media, social media, even going to other businesses and seeing if they'd partner with you to get the word out. Unless you already have a big following on Twitch I do not recommend focusing your efforts on it. Your best bet is to get local people in your store. In the long run sure, build a follower base on Twitch and you will eventually get donations there. But that isn't a short-term plan if you have a major event coming up.
  2. OK so here are the ones I've used in the past: Streampro.io (they have an Extra Life integration, still seems to work although I'd seen mention they no longer support EL): Here's an example of an overlay I built https://streampro.io/overlay/5604ef0df9261411093bb2a7/DZlXUxzKXS7zA4YYz0MoOCH7vSdqRG6K If Streampro doesn't work, use Streamlabs.com - goodness it's changed a lot since I last used it. Looks good though. An app built by a fellow Extra Lifer! http://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/404-extra-life-helper-show-real-time-donation-info-on-your-stream/ Another app built by a fellow Extra Lifer! I use this one the most because it can output just text files, which you can then use in a variety of ways through your streaming software. Once I figured out how to install the Furore font on my computer this was the best way to go for me. http://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/2726-my-extra-life-stream-helper-v069-1132016-custom-imagesound-alerts-text-file-stats-output-team-info/ Generally you're looking for cool ways to show your amount raised, possibly your goal and then how to display donation alerts. Hope these help!
  3. I've used a bunch of different tools in the past, from the XSplit Extra Life extension to a piece of software that can only be found on the forums here. I'm typing this reply on mobile and it's not easy to go navigate and give you links, but I'd say fish around these forums and you'll find some gems! Next time I get to my desktop I'll show some of the ones I like the best.
  4. Excited for this! Pokemon Go is one of the few games I've been able to keep my wife playing with me.

  11. Breath of the Wild

    I really enjoyed playing with the JoyCons apart, sprawled in my recliner, arms far apart but playing. Relaxing as all heck. That first paraglide is pretty epic no matter which direction you go.
  12. Breath of the Wild

    Who's playing it so far? Loving it? Just trained a horse last night. So rewarding!
  13. This idea has been brought up before and my personal opinion (I am not employed by Extra Life so please don't misconstrue this as their opinion) is that Extra Life shouldn't be backing any sort of competitive team, even through name association. There are too many things that can go wrong. It's a children's hospital charity, anything that remotely seems official would have to be sanctioned and risk taken on by Children's Miracle Network. Currently there is an Extra Life Twitch channel where a stream team broadcasts and spreads the word about Extra Life seven days a week. Might I suggest you inquire about that? The majority of streamers on the team aren't necessarily competitive but having a competitive person there could certainly boost profile. I'd suggest you could enter tournaments on your own or with a team and then if you wanted to donate part of your winnings to a hospital via Extra Life, that would be an amazing way to promote the charity without having to be labelled as representing the charity.
  14. ELU Schedule?

    Thursday is opening ceremonies and gaming with the kids - we did this after the tournament last year, this year it's at the start. I know some people are considering a park visit Thursday before opening ceremonies. I'm on the fence as I just want to spend time with as many friends as possible!
  15. Wave Clarification

    Agreed, time will be an enemy. Not going to stop me from signing up for all my games though.
