    sorry nobody got back to you on Saturday - it was part of the DDoS attack and follow up mitigation. there's a fresh blog update: https://extralife.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/update-on-ddos-attack-to-donordrive-and-its-impact-on-extra-life/
  2. hey Hunter! sorry nobody got back to you on the weekend. the DDoS attack likely impacted most things, and around the time of your post was definitely hit or miss anytime I visited the site. there's a fresh blog update on it: https://extralife.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/update-on-ddos-attack-to-donordrive-and-its-impact-on-extra-life/
  3. It's possible! Don't ask me how, as I'm not a coder, but Lumia has something! https://lumiacove.com/
  4. Hey Jeff! Welcome! as a Canadian guild leader (from the Ottawa guild!), please let me assure you that Extra Life and DonorDrive have heard our pleas for more Canadian dollar friendliness! we’re also working with DonorDrive on various ideas we’d love to have implemented. it’s still early days for incentives and milestones, but they’ve confirmed they’re working on things and open to feedback and suggestions! If you haven’t already, please join us on Discord! There’s a channel dedicated to DonorDrive, with direct access to their team! Take your list of ideas over there, and they’ll add them to the growing list to visit. I know one of the issues is getting both currencies to play together nicely, which is why we’re limited in this gradual roll out. https://discord.gg/extralife4kids should let you hop right in! Regarding completing your profile: it should allow you to select your corresponding hospital foundation - I was able to select mine. If not, send an email to support@extra-life dot org so they can take a look (you may get a response in here about that sooner, but it is the second day after Game Day so it may be quiet for a wee bit). Cheers, kavmac
  5. Somehow I missed your reply on here! :/ It might be easier to drop by the guild's Discord at http://discord.extralifeottawa.ca instead of here. We've got our next meeting on Tuesday, September 19th at 7PM at the Blurry Pixel.
  6. heya! somehow missed this thread until now :/ hope your stream went well! followed you on Beam, btw. we've got our next guild meeting on Tuesday the 18th at the Blurry Pixel on Queen Street at 7PM if you'd like to join us! <3 (we'll also be at Comiccon if you want to talk to some of the core team as well and can't make it out next week)
  7. heya @TheLostSkeleton sorry for the delay in replying.. Beam is a different kind of world compared to Twitch. it is very much community oriented, with the streaming platform itself being known for its little to no delays (the FTL <aka faster than light> protocol is fantastic for this) and interactivity. definitely worth checking out.. you could even restream between Beam & Twitch to get a feel for it.. although the FTL protocol wouldn't be available for that. @SunSchrein definitely take a look at the interactive 2.0 functions when they're out, and seek out @Firebottle and his interactive bot!
  8. If you speak with him about me joining the team, just tell him to invite me through Beam.

      Sorry I've been behind on this.. will reach out to him today! :)

  9. We'd be happy to have you join us! The community is like no other, and that delay.. ? If you don't hear from @Shuel90 in the next few days, let me know and I'll reach out to him and let him know you're interested in joining! oh hai outpost! ??
  10. I'm not typically a fan of them, but Vista Print printed our temporary guild tshirts when we did our telethon gameathon in early June, and they actually turned out pretty decently.. I wear the 3 I bought pretty regularly and they're all holding up well. and their turn around time was super quick.
  11. I've casually reached out to Beam to see if they have any plans for this year's game day, and they don't it'll be nice to get Beam filled up with some Extra Life streams, though!
  12. heyo everyone! it's been a little while since I've been hanging out on the forums.. and am finally getting things all sorted out for my gameday streaming plans. which brings me to my question: anyone streaming with Beam these days? I know that Twitch is a sponsor, which is amazing, and others use Hitbox, but it'd also be awesome to get the Beam community active with Extra Life (or some of the Extra Life community active with Beam)! It's where I've been setting up my stream in the last few days, for a bit of a change of pace, and thought I'd see if anyone else was part of the community. cheers!
  13. @Dig Douglas as in the downtime they're encountering right now? they're aware of it: or were you referring to their announcement here: https://streampro.io/blog/uncategorized/announcement-streampro-has-joined-the-twitchalerts-team/ ?
  14. Thanks for your support, @Sean Rooney! Here's hoping other guilds, yours included, have as much success partnering with their CMNH for a -thon of some sort!
  15. Ottawa Guild's very own @Parallax Abstraction shares his thoughts on the epic weekend we just participated in during the CHEO Telethon. https://geekbravado.com/2016/06/07/34-hours-for-cheo-with-ramble-video/ give it a read & watch the video when you've got a moment!
