  1. Could we be able to select our own MP3/wav file?
  2. Here's what I'd like to see for the text outputs, if possible. I haven't looked at what's able to be pulled so some might not be possible. Name of last donorLast donation amountName of last donor + amountLast 5 donor namesLast 5 donor amountsLast 5 donor names + amountsTotal amount raisedGoalTotal number of donationsAverage donation (Total amount/number of donations)Name of top donorTop donation amountName of top donor + donation amountTeam total amount raisedTop participant of teamTop participant amount raised from teamTop participant of team + amount raisedTop 5 participants of teamTop 5 amounts raised from teamTop 5 participants of team + amountsThe reason to having these all split up is for versatility in design. I hope these help. Thanks for your work!
  3. There does seem to be a giveaway tool request on Reddit which may be worth looking into. Past that, I think any tool that can read the JSON info from Extra Life and give multiple options for input into streaming applications. One of my favorites would be something that can take the JSON information and shove it into individual text files which can be read in OBS (when you add text, one option is to pull the info from text files and have it update automatically). This would give many diverse options to display info in OBS for instance. An example would be how you can use OBS text sources to display now playing info pulled by Snip.
  4. Also at VT Comic Con was The 501st Legion (New England Garrison), who were also raising money for our local CMNHospital! We teamed up to raise awareness and also got a couple pictures.
  5. Vermont has been ramping up recruitment! Over the weekend we teamed up to run a booth at the Vermont Comic Con! (Even my girlfriend, who is in this picture, got in on it!)
  6. Twitter Accounts

    Here's a Twitter list I made with everyone here (and a few others such as @rickheaton ( @Sapience ) : I will check back and add people to the list as I go. You can also follow me (@markmlynch) and shoot me a tweet to add you to the list (which is preferred)

  8. Updating my status.



  9. Coming Soon...

  10. Extralife Logo

    In that case, could there be a "how to obtain a license for use of logo" thrown in somewhere? Perhaps a point of contact?
  11. Twitter Accounts

    Dropping in as @markmlynch
  12. Extralife Logo

    Did we ever get a response regarding this? Or perhaps we can add these details to the Brand Guidelines? Can we use the logo freely for non-commercial useHow do we get approved to use the logo in items sold to raise money (for instance: those wristbands that people seem to love, created by Teams so it's more personal)Can there be a "do this and not this" type of information added to the Brand Guidelines in the Media Kit regarding this?
  13. Rainmeter and Extra Life Donations?

    I know that someone was looking at this on Reddit. I know Rainmeter is JSON friendly so it shouldn't be terrible.
  14. I'm surprised that CMNH hasn't already created an Extra Life article.
  15. So looking at the Guild guidelines, I'm curious about the reasoning behind the dislike of having a website? I understand the importance of brand unity, but why can't this carry over to websites? Yes, guilds should be strong with recruitment. But at the same time, Guilds (and the community) should be outwardly friendly to everyone. This means anyone from businesses (prospective supporters/donors) to the average person. In my opinion, Facebook groups are not an acceptable landing page, nor are Extra Life pages. They just plain look bad, and aren't friendly to the eye when you're glancing for information. My idea: unified websites provided by the Extra Life team to be handed over to Guild control, centrally hosted. (Perhaps all have the same Wordpress Template for easy deployment and Guild use). Make it as simple as possible: Landing Page with only a few links and informationProminent links to Guild social mediaProminent calls-to-action (contact, donate)Link to Guild forums/location forumsLinks to news (aggregated with Extra Life news as well as Guild-created posts)Calendar of Events (which can be created to link to Facebook Events to push that route)Information regarding Guild leadershipIt's a lot better to send people to or Another simple idea: CNAME redirects for clean URL's: that redirects to Guild Facebook group: friendly for print media and other uses.
