  1. Due to another EL event I want to be a part of on November 5th, I will be doing my marathon early this year! This Saturday, I'm going to do my 25 hours. I will be doing all the game giveaway stuff and I'll hopefully have some silly inventives planned out. Any support y'all can give would be fantastic XD I've also decided to try a loose schedule of events this year instead of playing one game the whole time or winging it as I go. We'll see how well I stick to it throughout the day, but I'm gonna do my best! You can find that schedule here if you're interested. Thanks!

    Well if I can get away with that, I may have to do it! -------------------------------------------------------------- I just had a (what I think) is a really fun idea. I don't know if my community is quite big enough to make this work, but I may have to try it anyway. I play a different game for 9 days and have people vote on their favorite one. On the 10th day, I'll do an extended stream of that game. Rinse and repeat. On day 91-99, I'll play each of the winners and then the community will vote on the best game (or most fun to watch, as it were) of the 100 days of streaming! I may have to look into this. Considering my PC isn't powerful enough to stream most games, I'll have to make sure I have around 80 games I can stream.

    Man, this is gonna start up right after I'll be settled in from the marriage stuff and it'll be way easier to just hop on and stream for an hour or two. I would really love to try this out! Unfortunately, our families both live out of town and there's a weekend ever month or two that we go away. I'm not sure if I'd be able to do it It may be worth a shot, either way!
  4. Hey y'all! I'll be doing a 12+ hour marathon stream on Saturday, June 18th. It will start at 12P (hopefully) and go until 12A BUT for every dollar I raise, I will go an extra minute until the donation goal ($330) is hit. So it's possible it could end up being a 17.5 hour stream. I'll be giving away about 30 games I've gathered from Humble bundles and the like. Due to my upcoming wedding, not much planning went into this, but I wanted to do something before my big day, and 2 days from now is my only free day, lol! I'd appreciate any support/hosts/promotion that you could give! Thanks, yall! HumbleLife HumbleLife HumbleLife

    This seems pretty cool! I'd definitely be down to volunteer for this. Do you know exactly when in December it is?

    Meeting Recap - June

    Fixed! Thanks, I'm not sure why I was thinking Kalamazoo. Also edited to add that we want to look into any events that may be happening in Holland.
  7. Attendees Phil John Aaron Erik We are now at 70 Extra Lifers playing for Helen DeVos and have raised $1209! Old Business Google I/O 4 Sign-ups In Kind Donation forms are now available for tax writeoffs. We will have release forms for any patients that would like to hang out on gameday. We were unable to secure a booth at Jafaxx. The Muskegon anime con has been canceled. Gr8bit is still currently up in the air. New Business Possible future events. A bar on Lake Michigan Drive will be showing MLG events on Tuesdays. It may be worth it to have a presence there. A similar business to GrandLAN may be opening downtown this summer. We will keep an eye out. We have an opportunity to secure a booth at the Balloon Festival happening July 22-24. Some sort of presence at Art Prize may be worth thinking about. Look into Holland to see if there are any events we could attend. Grandcon Grandcon is offering $5 off their ticket price to all Spectrum Health employees. For every one of these tickets sold, $5 will be donated to Extra Life. (It is normally $1.) Gameday OST has donated TVs for the gameday room. We are hoping we will get enough for the tournament as well. The manager at Game Stop is looking into helping us out with consoles. We will need to work out food for the entire day. John will reach out to Party on Printing to see if they will donate gameday shirts. Phil will make sure to book a nap room (important!) We will need to start thinking about scheduling mini-tournaments throughout the day (tabletop and console). Streaming details will need to be worked out eventually. We will be scheduling a social hour in the near future. Stay tuned for details. NEXT MEETING 07/07/2016 *Stay posted for any changes*
  8. Well I finally heard back from them and they are saying that there seems to be a problem with Extra Life's API which is giving an error when Streampro tries to access it. They say they are working with EL to get it fixed so hopefully that happens soon. From the way it sounds, it seems like any app that tries to track our donations and goals will be a little screwy until it gets fixed.
  9. Hey y'all, So I was wondering if anyone uses the Extra Life notification options in Streampro for alerts a goal progress. It has stopped working for me and was wondering if anyone else is having issues with it. I am planning on doing a marathon stream and need something to track goal progress and notify everyone when someone donates. Streampro's Extra Life integration was great and I really hope it either get fixed, or I can learn why it's not working for me. Also if anyone has any other ways to get EL alerts and whatnot on my stream, I would love suggestions! I couldn't find any other options besides Streampro. Thanks!

  11. Hey y'all! So a few weeks back, I made a poll consisting of 30 possible stream games for this and my Twitch community to vote on for reaching 100 followers. Now I've taken the top 5 (there's actually 8 games because of a 4-way tie) and created a new poll for the finals. Everyone can now vote on these games. The poll will run until I beat Dark Souls 3 at which point the top game will be streamed until completion. Head here to vote! Thanks for all your support!

    Pick a Game for Me!

    One more day to vote in this round! If you haven't already, put in a vote for a game and help me out Tomorrow, I'll take the top 5 (or however many, depending on ties) and create a new poll for the finals. All games will retain their vote counts. This means at the end of the final round, I will add the total number of votes each game received during the round of 30 to the finals vote count. (eg Currently, Ni No Kuni will get 8 extra votes at the end of the finals)

    Meeting Summary - April

    Thanks for the update! Sorry I missed the meeting, but it looks like ya guys did some work I'll surely be at the next meeting. Let me know, @Viedt, if there's anything I need to do in the meantime. This sounds great! We're planning a big event at Helen DeVos here in Grand Rapids for gameday, but a bigger reach with the chance to bring in more people sounds great! Look forward to talking about next month

    Black Desert Online

    EDIT: I read Black Desert Online, but was thinking Blade & Soul. You can disregard everything below, lol. I have not actually played BDO, but am very interested in it as well. INFO ON BLADE & SOUL BELOW: It's installed on my PC and I've played about 3 hours. It was a very fun 3 hours. I haven't played a lot of MMOs but the combat seems pretty unique to that style of game. I can't say I 100% understood how combat works, but it was very fast and action packed. I don't remember there being cooldowns in the same way as WoW or FFXIV, but I'm sure they are still there in some capacity. The setup to the story was actually very interesting as well. The only reason I'm not still playing is time.

    Tips/Advise/Ideas for 2016!

    I finally created my 2016 incentives and just thought I'd share them with you all since I love reading what everyone else is doing (and occasionally borrowing ideas XD ) EDIT: Apparently I math bad. In what world is half a grand 750? EDIT 2: Apparently my eyes are bad. That says 3/4, everything's fine XD
