  1. Hey @bread_man, We have a thread going on with the DonorDrive team, you may want to check in there! http://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/7464-donordrive-ama-w-the-extra-life-community/?tab=comments#comment-27477
  2. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the ESA Foundation have been prolific partners with Extra Life from the very beginning! Each year we love announcing this challenge to our Extra Lifers and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, and this year is no different! We're thrilled to announce the 2017 ESA Foundation Extra Life Challenge. This is a chance to unlock a huge donation for your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital by doing what you do best; Playing Games to Heal Kids. The Internet simply does not have enough bandwidth for us to fully transmit our gratitude. THANK YOU, ESA FOUNDATION! The ESA Foundation's generous $60,000 grant is divided into two prizes that Extra Lifers can unlock for their hospital by working together to raise all they can for the sick and injured kids that Extra Life supports. Prize #1: Top Overall Fundraising - $30,000 2017 Recipient: Seattle Children's Hospital! ESA Foundation is awarding a $30,000 prize to the hospital whose Extra Lifers raise the most money overall by 9:00am Central Time on Sunday, November 5th.. The total will include only funds raised and received by the deadline (all the more reason to get your offline gifts in early or convert them to digital donations). Last year, the San Francisco-Oakland market took home the funds! Okay, but what if YOUR town is not as big as the top dogs on this list? The ESA Foundation has a SECOND prize to recognize the needs of smaller hospitals and the kids they serve. Prize #2: top Fundraising Per Capita - $30,000 2017 Recipient: Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation Using census data for the areas served by our hospitals, an additional award of $30,000 will be unlocked for the hospital with the highest per capita fundraising. To compute per capita we divide the population of the area by the dollars raised for that hospital. The hospital with the highest per capita amount at 9:00 am Central Time on Sunday, November 5th will win. Again, only funds that are raised and received by this time will be counted towards this figure. Note: A hospital can only unlock one award, even if they are the highest for both the overall fundraising and top fundraising per capita. In the event that this happens, the hospital will unlock the overall fundraising grant and the next highest per capita fundraising hospital will unlock that grant. Last year, UVM Children's Hospital in Vermont edged out the competition to win! Working with the ESA and the ESA Foundation continues to make Extra Life and our communities stronger! Now get fundraising and unlock these major achievements! View full article

  5. Oh @Amy and @Josh! If you both haven't been in contact with your hospital yet, let me know!
  6. Unfortunately if you are on a console, there is not a solution to add overlays inherently to those platforms. You would still need a capture card and broadcast software. You may consider joining our Discord and asking the community if they have any other ideas!
  7. 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!
  8. Oh goodness, I do love some Vermintide. Bring on Chaos!!!
  9. 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 you created an application to interact with your Extra Life fundraising efforts? 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. AMA on Monday, October 30th! It's happening, right here! 10/30/17 @ 8pm EST, the fine folks at Donor Drive will be hopping in the forums and answering as many of your questions as possible for ~ 1 hour. Feel free to post your question ahead of time or set your calendar to come back on October 30th! DonorDrive Who's Who: @Nik [DonorDrive] Stephens: Chief Technology Officer, wears the towering pillar of hats @Tim [DonorDrive] Mixell: Senior Application Architect, Captain of Team DonorDrive 7 years running! https://www.extra-life.org/team/donordrive @Ben [DonorDrive] Clayton: Product Integration Developer, resident Twitch enthusiast @Matt [DonorDrive] Clark: Senior Account Manager, CMNH's point guy at DonorDrive
  10. You can definitely start a new thread! That's a great idea. Another best practice would be to use these items as donation incentives.
  11. 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.
  12. Hey @Naomi N. Lugo And Extra Life , who also is a among one of their charity partners.
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. 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
  16. 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/

  20. Hello Dale! Sorry that you've had issues updating your page. Could you send a ticket to support@extra-life.org with screenshots and the particulars of what you are trying to add to your page? Images? Links? Embedded video?
  21. Hey @awndroo! We'd love to add this to our community folder in the Broadcaster kit! Do we have your permission?
  22. Hey Bubba! We're still working on the details, but I can say it will be during the week of March 5th. For exact dates and details, stay tuned!
  23. Hello Extra Lifers! This September, Extra Life continued to grow bigger and better than ever! Between PAX West, Extra Life Tabletop Appreciation Weekend and the #CheerForKids campaign with Twitch, our community continued to amaze us! Now that Child Health Day is right around the corner, we’re hoping to raise the bar this October as we continue to support our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Twitch and #CheerForKids September was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we partnered with Twitch to raise money for sick and injured kids with Bits and Cheers! For every 1,000 Bits cheered with #charity, Twitch donated $2! Over 32,000 Twitch users cheered, resulting in over $110,000 donated! Extra Life @ PAX West The Seattle Extra Life Guild absolutely ROCKED it at PAX West earlier this month. They talked with thousands of attendees, signing 600+ people up to participate in Extra Life 2017. Those new members of the community will contribute their support to 68 of our 170 member hospitals. A big thank you to the Seattle Guild, and welcome to all of our new Extra Life participants! Tabletop Appreciation Weekend We love our tabletop gamers! Over 400 people registered and $25,000 raised for Extra Life over the course of Tabletop Appreciation Weekend this September. Miss out on the tabletop action? You can still join a tabletop-focused team! Check out the Wizards of the Coast Super Team or the Paizo Super Team. #CommitForTheKids for Child Health Day Every minute, 62 kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. On Child Health Day this October 2nd, we aim to raise funds and awareness for our 170 member hospitals to help those kids. We could use your help! We are asking gamers everywhere to #CommitForTheKids by making a donation or registering for Extra Life. The Extra Life community is on fire with new registrations and raising money for sick and injured kids. Help us show the world what makes Extra Life so great, whether that’s by getting a group of friends to play tabletop games or by surpassing your fundraising goal and gunning for more. Keep that energy going by pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always…. For The Kids, Mike, Liz, Lou & Jeromy Team Extra Life Children's Miracle Network Hospitals View full article
