    I joined Extra Life 3 years ago on a whim just to see if I could do the 24 hour gaming challenge. After that game day I got a message to join the local guild. I did that and from there found the twitch side of EL. I applied to become a mod and have met so many incredible people and have accomplished alot. It's done wonders for my mental health alone. But then last november I learned about Maddox. Maddox was a local teenager who had terminal cancer and wanted to do his own "game day stream" to help raise money. His goal was to be remembered as a champion and not just another kid with cancer. I, with the help of guild president Richard Moser (Yinz all know him, haha), got him up and running on Twitch. Along with the help of several other Extra-Lifers we were able to help Maddox raise over $16k, a record for our hospital. On my game day I had a donation incentive to get an Extra Life tattoo. Mid January Maddox bravely lost his fight and I knew what I wanted my tattoo to be. Maddox is why I Extra Life now. His Twitch name was MadGhost0821. AshleyAwoww, a stream team member, was the one who drew this up and I just got it on Friday.

    Hello! I'm writing this because I would like some feedback. I'm still new to the whole Extra Life thing and I'm forced to work under some restrictions. A little about myself first! I met my wife because of Extra Life and because of that I'm very thankful for this platform. She inspired me to get involved, so in the past I served more as a cheerleader in the background cheering her on. Earlier this year, I helped as she completed one of her incentives (she ate the world's hottest chocolate while being interviewed about Extra Life). While I still want to be her cheerleader, pom poms and all, I also want to contribute. Which bring us to the restriction... My wife and I live in Mississippi... rural Mississippi at that. As a result, internet options are limited. Streaming just isn't an option where we live and while we would love to one day move to a place with better internet so we can stream, it just isn't feasible at this time. Instead, we've opted to explore different routes to promote Extra Life. My wife has a blog (GamerReverie) and a YouTube channel (same name). I've also started a YouTube channel (PrepareToIndie). Since late last week, I've made it my goal to post videos daily (except for Sunday because that's when we work with the church youth). I want to use my YouTube channel to promote Extra Life but I'm not sure how to grow my channel so that I can use it in such a way. Last week, I started releasing my "I love you, Colonel Sanders" Let's Play, as well as a collaborative project (w/ my wife) where we play the cooperative puzzle game, Tick Tock: A Tale for Two. I also started releasing videos for my Code Vein Let's Play. So, let's get down to brass tacks... here's what I'm asking you good folks for... A.) What kind of content (gaming content) would you watch a channel for? At the present moment I'm only doing Let's Play's. B.) Do you have any advice on how to grow the channel - I know content is king - hence question #1? C.) Do you think YouTube can be effectively leveraged to promote Extra Life?

    PrepareToIndie is my husband, and I've been so happy to see him take a bigger interest in Extra Life this year! Even if you don't have any direct advice or a response to his post here, it'd mean a lot to both of us if you gave us a follow on our channels!

    Hey folks! I am really excited to be bringing Pinball into the mix this year with a pinball tournament on Extra Life play day, November 2nd! This will be my 10th year taking part in Extra LIfe and now that I play pinball primarily, it only felt right to run a pinball event for Extra Life. Location: Pinball Gallery - 81 Lancaster Avenue - Malvern, PA Tournament Overview Tournament Date: November 02, 2019 The first ever Roller Rumble will occur November 2nd, where players will be asked to submit scores across a selection of 4 games from the games available. Players will be allowed to play more than one card but must complete the card they are working on before beginning another. The venue is none other than Pinball Gallery, located in Malvern, PA and will be open to the public if seats are still available for the tournament. With more than 70 games at the location, there will be a nice selection of games included in the tournament, and other games available to be played during any downtime. Price for pre-registration will be $30, which will cover the cost of full-day admittance to Pinball Gallery, entry into the tournament and your first qualifying card. Games will be set to free play, so no coin drop will be required. The top 16 players will then take part in a 1 game, 3 round playoff to determine the winner. Prizes will be rewarded to all players making the playoffs, with the winner earning the Roller Rumble Championship belt, a beautifully built replica belt designed by Undisputed Belts. All profits from the tournament will be donated to the Children's Miracle Network via the Extra Life charity livestream marathon taking place that day. We hope to see you there! If you see this, are in the Philadelphia area, and wish to take part, I will begin accepting pre-registrations soon. Any questions? email habermanstephenATGmail

    Meeting Minutes from April 6 2019 Upcoming Events: April 12th - 13th Cecil Con April 26th-28th Awesomecon May 4th Free Comic Book Day Members in Attendance: 17 New Topics: We have new buttons guys they are awesome if you haven't seen them yet have a look here: Signup Pin Donate Pin Silver Pin Let us know if you like them! Mike is building us a new wheel (Yay Mike!) in the meantime we do have a new rainbow wheel so this means in the future we will have two wheels to work with when planning events! There will be a new form on Timecounts for equipment sign out, Artem our amazing quartermaster will be checking this. If you want to have something for a local event you will use this form to request/sign-out whatever you need here. You will need to place address in so Artem may bring equipment to you - please remember this is first come first serve and convention events get first dibs During this meeting we discussed the importance of Table setup and having a good Pitch. When setting up your table first thing you will do is place table cloth down (at the end of the day most items can be stored under the table the table cloth will help conceal these things) try and center the logo when placing the cloth down it should fit well on most 6 to 8 foot tables Unpack the 3 large and 2 Medium clear baskets and place them in the center of the table, placing the wheel and a display case on either side of the baskets. These items will help draw in people, the wheel especially! Front baskets get candy and the back baskets get bracelets and pins. Setup the Extra life Banner next to the table placement is key so make sure you still have a view of the room and people still have a view of you. (This banner as of right now has a bit of misinformation that can scare people off "Stream for 24 hours" that 24 hour part can scare people so do not forget in your pitch to include that it can be done in any time frame!) Please remember for the wheel one spin only! Take any prizes/swag we are giving away and place them in the display case (Please note not every convention will have raffles/giveaways) do try to tailor items in box for the event this will help gain more interest! Place the donation jar on the table within reach and in a place you may keep an eye on in please remember that not all conventions will allow donations at the table. If the convention does allow donations at the start of the day slip a few bills/change into the jar this will encourage people to donate. If you are at a event where we are not allowed to take donations at the table and someone wishes to give cash there, take the money and safely tuck it away into the lock-box. (this should be kept under the table in the blue bin) or open your extra life page and have them donate electronically there! Tablets are used for sign up make sure these are charged during the event! (Remember to lock these up at night.) Keep track of signups! Using not only a paper tally of sign ups but the clicker as well! (the clicker is fun seriously! give it a try!) If you have room on your table depending on the size place out the pamphlet stands! We have two types of pamphlets one that goes over Participation and Volunteering! Make sure to place out the Participation one! (They look really similar.) They Grey stand includes all items you may need during the event promotional materials, markers, raffle tickets, guild information Tips for Pitching: Greet everyone when they pass by some people will say hello, smile and keep walking, some will have ignored you, some people will be off in their own world. It is important to keep a smile on your face no matter how many grumpy gusses ignore your friendly hello. When someone does show interest (usually in the wheel) ask if they know about extra life - explain if they seem interested! Remember try not to say it is 24 hour stream, that length of time can scare people away. A good example would be "One day a year where gamers of all kinds, video, table top, board games, sports, you name it, stream, play, record for a cause. Some people go that entire 24 hours but me myself and a few friends break it down to 4 hours. The fundraising doesn't even have to be all in one day, anyone can donate to your extra life page at any time throughout the year." Best tip of all: wear comfortable shoes we do not always have enough chairs for everyone to sit, so make sure your shoes are comfortable for standing for long periods, as well as a pitch tends to go better and feel more comfortable when you are at eye level with the person/persons you are speaking with. Hope to see all of you May 11th at CrabTowne 1500 Crain Hwy S, Glen Burnie, MD 21061 12pm to 3pm for our next ExtraLife meeting!

    As part of our annual induction ceremony, Extra Life Baltimore Guild members and volunteers take the following pledge upon receiving their volunteer badge for the year: "Upon accepting this badge, I pledge to dedicate myself to supporting the mission of Extra Life. I promise to serve as a role model to the gaming community, and as a friend to my fellow Guild Members. I promise to conduct myself in a manner that honors the sick and injured children we help and the memory of those we couldn’t." Our Officers, in all their glory and sacrifice, take an additional oath before taking office: "As a steward of the Extra Life Baltimore Guild, I pledge to support my guild members to the best of my ability. I promise to conduct myself with professionalism and respect when I am representing the guild." I'm so moved by the dedication of our volunteer team, and I'm excited that we're able to continue to build new traditions as we grow each year. Thank you to everyone who took our Guild Pledge in the February Elections, Awards, and Induction Ceremony. We couldn't do this without you! If you would like to join the Extra Life Baltimore Guild, please complete our Guild Application.

    Hi guys, is your game day over and you are feeling the withdrawals? You may have seen the article from the main Extra Life feed on Grunka Munka Games (here). This small, local studio is full of Extra Lifers who are living the dream of working on video games all day, and spent Game Day with the Seattle Guild at Seattle Children's Hospital raising money #ForTheKids! They just released their first game and as part of their launch plan, want to bring it in a CUSTOM arcade cabinet to the Alyssa Burnett Center in Bothell. They could use some help, so if you have time, give a read to this message from their Marketing Officer Ray. If you are interested in helping out, you can contact them directly at contactus@grunkamunka.com. "We are a video game studio in Seattle and are working with Seattle Children's Hospital to build two custom arcade cabinets (similar to the one in the attached photo) for their Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center (ABC). It's a center that "offers year-round classes and activities for adults, age 18 or older, with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities". We plan to build both arcade cabinets, install internal game consoles (Nintendo Switch & Xbox One, possibly PC as well), pre-load them with games, deliver them to ABC, and paint the arcade cabinets with the students of ABC. After that, ABC will keep one of the arcade cabinets for their students to enjoy and be able to auction off the other to raise funds for ABC / Seattle Children’s Hospital. We hope to make the delivery/painting event(s) as positive and impactful as possible. We also hope to incorporate Xbox Adaptive Controllers into the system so people with physical limitations can use the system with ease. We hope to partner with literally anyone who wants to be involved to make this effort possible and are more than happy for them to have a presence throughout the process. Our biggest need is any hardware/software that anyone would be able to provide. If that's possible, that would great. If not, that’s ok too. For anyone who is able to be involved and/or join us during our event(s), we would be delighted to have their help. We simply want to bring some gaming happiness to some great people and are more than happy to share the spotlight in doing so. Thanks, Ray Aflakian Chief Marketing Officer"

    Hey guys! I wanted to share an idea that one of my guild members did over the past weekend. She contacted one of those painting party places and was able to setup a party that benefited Extra Life! Those seem to be popular activities this year, so I suggest reaching out in your local area. She was able to raise a little bit and is planning on expanding it for next year! So if you aren't sure on how to push the fundraising bar up, think outside the box!!!

    Hey Patchex, What I have gotten in the habit of doing the last couple of years is just changing my custom participant URL link on December 31st so it doesn't get locked out and I can use it immediately when I sign up for the new year. I just usually add the year at the end, like this: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/RealMillenniumGroup2018 Then when I sign up for the new year, my normal URL (without the year) isn't locked out and I don't have to change any instances of the link anywhere.

    Hey @TheLostSkeleton! Thanks for your question! Processing fees on the platform are based on the amount of the actual donation, though payment of those fees are always 100% optional on the part of the donor. Regardless of whether fee is paid or not, the receiving hospital will always see 100% of the intended donation.

    I just wanted to pop in and thank you for this! I wanted to find a way to automate the process and this just works perfectly for me! I'm keeping this in my wheelhouse for the future (The donation "kids cheering" sound popped in when I was playing a horror game and I got confused for a moment *laugh*)

    You are a saint, sir. All I really want every year are the text files so that I can change how they look to suit my design. So many of the other apps available force design/colour/font choices on me. Edit: I'm sorry but I'm not educated enough to run this application. I downloaded that Node program but it's just a command prompt? I don't understand anything I'm looking at in that zip package. Update: MajorLinux helped me, it turns out I had to use the command prompt in Windows to run this, Notepad to edit in my Extra Life participant ID. It works, thanks again! Update: I also figured out how to edit the file so it spits out team info instead of participant, which was my ultimate goal! Replace user ID with team ID, then edit a couple lines of code so it points to the teams directory instead of the participant directory.

    I'm pressed for time over the next few weeks because of Extra Life and other personal stuff so I'm really glad you had a friend who could make the minor changes for your custom clock. I probably won't merge this as an official option until more people request it since the Helper's list of configuration options is growing, but I will leave the pull request open as a reference and example. Thanks! Community collaboration FTW!

    Hey White Bishop! Unfortunately, writing to files is something the Extra Life Helper can not do since it is a web application that runs in a browser context. It looks like @bfinleyui released an update earlier today, however. Hopefully that is what you're looking for!

    So i know it's last minute, and only half the functionality, but I have something that writes out the text files like it did on the previous version. It doesn't have any of the alert functionality, but has all the same text files as the previous version. You'll need to install node from nodejs.org, download the zip from http://bfin.beer/EL2018.zip and check out the readme inside for specific info. Let me know if something's broken.

    I took a few classes a while back, unfortunately they were pretty light on JavaScript. I'll see if I can figure it out though. Thanks again - and hey maybe an idea to add images for a future build. Thanks again for all of your help and good luck with this years stream!

    Hey everyone! I just released version 2.3 of the Helper which contains a fun new feature. When a new donation is received, the donation message will be read with text-to-speech during the donation alert. You can choose one of three different voice styles or disable it. New option is in the ExtraLifeHelper.html file: var donationMessageVoice = "UK-female"; // Voice style for the reading of donation messages. // // Set to US-female, UK-male, UK-female or set // // to "" to not read messages with text-to-speech. I also fixed a bug where some of the fonts may not properly load making text look weird in some situations. As always, please let me know here if you have any questions or run into any issues. Latest download: https://github.com/breadweb/extralifehelper/releases/tag/2.3

    It's not recommended that you collect funds in that manner but to use the the participant page or the mobile fundraising application to engage your friends and family! We realize the appeal and are looking into the possibility of using the Facebook fundraising integration for future campaigns.

    Greetings, Philly gamers. Who am I? I am a dad of two amazing kids who has employed the services of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (and will likely do so again at some point). I have friends and extended family who have also depended on the services CHOP provides. As such, I have a growing number of reasons to want to support a hospital that does so much for the kiddos. But what to do? . . . I discovered Extra Life during the 2017 Greater Philadelphia Comic Con. I stumbled upon the Extra Life table while wandering the expo floor. I was puzzled at first, wondering why anyone would pay someone to play games. Once I got past the newness of the idea and convinced myself that it was no different than getting paid to run/bike/swim for a cause, I decided that to find a way to participate in an Extra Life event. I wasn't sure where to look for support. In April 2017, I posted to a Facebook gaming group, the Invictus Stream, of my interest in Extra Life. Harlan Guthrie, one of the group's founders, took up my suggestion with extreme gusto with only the gentlest of nudges. The Invictus Stream raised over $5000 for various Children's Miracle Network hospitals in 2017. My first Extra Life was a super special day, and I knew that I wanted to participate again. Which brings me to 2018 and beyond . . . @Kevin Doctimus I am keeping my Extra Life 2018 small, but I am totally down with helping to organize a small to mid to large scale event for 2019. Cheers

    I know this post was originally made almost a year ago, but Microsoft's Adaptive controller was made with a bunch of input from various organizations that help people with disabilities game again. It's a really cool piece of tech, and if anyone out there is looking for said groups, a bunch of them are listed in the article I linked.

    Hello all, I've been video gaming for over nearly thirty years, collecting games and systems long the way: everything from classics like 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, to more obscure systems like Virtual Boy, Pong clones, and the Astrocade. I've also been recently getting into tabletop gaming. While I've known about Extra Life for a few years now, this is the first time I'm trying to get involved. I'm also looking for some advice on running a large-scale event. I work at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia (you may know us from the Mütter Museum), and I am exploring the possibility of hosting an EL event at the College. We have tons of event space and I am eager to fill those spaces with games, all the better if it is for a good cause. I just wanted to get some advice/tips about hosting an event. I'm sure many people do them on their own or with groups of friends but have any of you host any kind of large-scale event? I'm excited to be a part of the cause. Even if I don't host something for work, I'd like to do something on my own.

    Howdy everyone! Dino here again to say I haven't given up on getting Miami on the list of South Eastern guild cities! Last year was a lot of trial and error, and I'm hopeful that this year is a lot more trial, and a whole lot less error. I'm just making this thread as a place for Miami locals and people from surrounding cities who do raise money for Nicklaus Children's Hospital (formerly Miami Children's Hospital) to come together, say hi, and hopefully make events happen to help grow our lil community. I'm so excited to see what 2018 has in store for all of us, and I am so very excited to see old and new faces at ELU this year. As always, if you know people in the area, or if you know of people willing to help or support my efforts of getting Miami a guild, or wanting to support Nicklaus Children's Hospital, feel free to send them my way! Send me a message and I'll send you all the contact methods possible! I love this community so much, I know great things happen when we work together. Happy New Year everyone, can't wait to make 2018 the best year we've had yet! Alex "aBigScaryDino"

    Hi/Hello, My name is Troy Starrett, and I recently moved to the PNW from sunny New Mexico, for better work opportunities. I first got involved with Extra Life through the Sarcastic Gamer community in 2010. This is my 9th year participating in the charity. I was previously raising money for the University of New Mexico Children's Hospital, because they were local, and they helped both of my daughters with medical emergencies shortly after they were born. I decided this year, since I was joining the Seattle Guild, that I should raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital (although it still feels a little bit weird). I sincerely look forward to working with all of you for this amazing cause. Cheers!

    Any iRacers out there interesting in putting together and/or participating in an Extra Life series? Here's a quick sketch of my thoughts: Series of short races over 24 hrs on a mix of oval and road courses. Seek out race sponsors to supply a purse which is paid to winning drivers' chosen hospitals. Focus on base content (and some very widely used tracks) to lower barriers for entry I'd love to get a good group of Extra Lifers involved with this before I started reaching out to the iRacing community. The first order of business would be nailing down a date, series rules, and a broadcast partner. From there we can seek out drivers from the iRacing community and get them involved in Extra Life. If you're interested, reply here! Let's make this happen!

    What's this??? That's right, the Peterbilt 579 Stand-Up Cabin Extra Life Freight mod. (I'm currently re-working a couple of things for the day-cab.) Simply take the .scs document, and place it in your Documents/American Truck Simulator/mod folder, then enable the mod in the game. elf_pb579_su.scs

    Hey everyone! As Siekobilly discovered, I updated the widget to work with OBS. TL;DR; You need a second monitor to use the Helper with OBS. It is incompatible with any plugin that exists for OBS including CLRBrowser. New download and instructions are posted at http://www.breadweb.net/files/extralife/ For those who want to know more about the technical details: The widget was made as a Flash application because it was originally designed for XSplit. Out of the box, XSplit lets you add Flash files to your presentation. Xsplit is an application that can load and run Flash files. The current best way to add web or Flash content to OBS is to use the CLRBrowser plugin. Unfortunately, this plugin uses a browser to render web and Flash content. When running in a browser, Flash files are subject to the Flash player's security restrictions around cross-domain data loading. The Flash application actually loads ExtraLife website pages and parses them to determine your individual donations as they come in. That way it knows when you have a new donation and it can total them up. This counts as loading data from another domain and is why it won't work when running in a browser. ExtraLife could fix this by adding a crossdomain.xml policy file to the root of their website. I've reached out to them and asked them to do this and also suggested they get to work on a formal API so myself and other people wouldn't have to resort to parsing HTML pages which is no fun. The ExtraLife team reached out to me because they were interested in the widget so hopefully we can work together to create a set of developer tools and a nice API in the future! I could write my own plugin for OBS which would render the Flash widget without using a browser, but that will take time. For now, I created an executable that loads the Flash file and displays it in a window. That way you can load the Flash widget into your presentation via a Window Source. The catch to this is that most of us play our games fullscreen. If the window is covered, it won't be captured correctly. The only way to get around this is by putting the window on a 2nd monitor. I'm personally using OBS tomorrow and that's how I'm getting the widget in my presentation. If you think I missed anything obvious that would not require a 2nd monitor, please let me know. Otherwise, I hope it works out for most everyone. Good luck with your fundraising!

    So, I am super excited about Canadian credit cards being processed this year! However... it seems like processing fees are scaling to the amount donated. Someone donated $200 and the processing fee displayed as $14. My friend tested a $50 donation and the processing fee was $3.50. This is not appealing to my donors! Is it just a bug with the new system?
