  3. Thanks for the tag, @CAWZY. The reason behind not being able to sell Extra Life merch (even if the proceeds go to your fundraising page), is that it technically would mean you need to enter a licensing agreement with CMN Hospitals. Unfortunately, it's not realistic for our legal team of two do that with hundreds of community members who are more than willing to front the costs for such a good cause/fun way to raise money. Nothing to do with old leadership vs new leadership (we're not new anyways :)) but rather the legal handcuffs holding us back! Mike
  4. @stodd.ELBoston- All the data is scrubbed to make sure it doesn't break DD's macro. If the person is already registered for the current year of Extra Life, it flags the record. If they're in the system but not signed up for the current year, it will register them like everyone else.
  5. Hey d00ds! The app is meant to work as an alternative registration option when you're out somewhere without cell service or wi-fi so it's not actually connected to the website and definitely not instantaneous. If you have the means to sign someone up via the website, definitely do that instead! Here's how the app works: 1. The data entered thru the form is stored on the device until you connect to the wi-fi or cell signal 2. Once the device has an active connection, it uploads the data to a central server and deletes it from the device 3. We then export the data from the server, send it to Donor Drive, and they run a macro on it to process the registrations We typically do step #3 every Monday afternoon and registrants receive their welcome email by Tuesday or Wednesday!
  6. Thanks for asking @Karulytic...@K8Morosky hit the nail on the head!
  7. Thanks @BBH Mokinns - I agree with not wanting to lose anyone else's contributions. I went ahead and moved it over to the Streaming Tips & Tricks section. If you'd like to start a "How To" post like @gektek was suggesting, feel free to. Just didn't want to leave this info behind!
  8. Carmike Theaters is a CMN Hospitals' supporter.. we may be able to reach out to them if there's enough interest! Mike
  9. Hey Extra Lifers, Mike here from the national office… I wanted to write a quick note to let you know of some changes happening on the Extra Life National Team. As some of you may have heard (or seen online), as of last week, Rick Heaton (Sapience), is no longer the Community Manager for Extra Life. We’re extremely grateful for his help launching the Extra Life Community Hub and his support of the Guilds and wish him all the best in the future. Another structural change on the Extra Life team is that Jeromy Adams (Doc), has taken a new position within the company and will help lead the Innovations Team for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. His new focus will be to generate ideas and opportunities for people to support their local children’s hospital. He’ll always be a member of the Extra Life community, just involved in a different capacity now. Right now, you’re probably asking yourself "Well how the heck is Extra Life going to keep being Extra Life?!” and we have an answer for that as well. Liz Aponte (DJThunderstix) and myself (LeaveIt2Beaver) will be leading the overall vision and strategy for the program and be receiving a ton of support from other teams within CMN Hospitals. There will be more people than ever to listen and implement the great ideas this community comes up with. This means more eyes on the community forums, more hands vigorously typing to answer support emails, more feet on the ground in local communities and more supporters in the industry coming together to make sure the hospitals and the kids we fight so hard for are in good hands. Coming off one of our largest fundraising increases in history, it’s a very exciting time for our organization and to capitalize on the momentum we’re generating both in raising awareness and funds for children’s hospitals, it was necessary to make sure we had the right people, resources and talents supporting the right initiatives and programs. I can promise you that Liz and I are working diligently to make sure that Extra Life 2016 is bigger and bolder than you’ve ever seen it. Stay tuned to the Community Hub, our Facebook page and Twitter account to keep up with the action that will no doubt be going down. Together we will make this yet another record-breaking year for the kiddos. If you have any questions, you can always email me or DM me in the forums. I’ll be on the road launching Guilds and visiting partners over the next few weeks but will always get back to you as soon as I can.

  11. Hey Guildies! Mike here from the national office… I wanted to write a quick note to let you know of some changes happening on the Extra Life National Team. Since this news will affect our Guild Markets most of all, I wanted to write you first. As some of you may have heard (or seen online), as of last week, Rick Heaton, is no longer the Community Manager for Extra Life. We’re extremely grateful for his help launching the Extra Life Community Hub and his support of the Guild program and we wish him all the best. For the foreseeable future, if you wouldn't mind tagging Liz (DJThunderstix) and/or myself (LeaveIt2Beaver) in the forums when you need our input, it would help us keep up with any questions you may have for us. If you have something you'd rather discuss behind closed doors, just shoot a message to Guilds@extra-life.org. Liz and I share that mailbox and will be tag teaming any questions that come in and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. I'll be posting a longer, more in-depth letter to the entire community that addresses some other exciting shifts happening with Extra Life tomorrow morning on the homepage of the Community Hub. Make sure you check it out!

  14. Great meeting most of you,,, Here's the group picture from last night! Good lookin' group of people if I do say so myself.
  15. Ya'll are awesome.. ALWAYS appreciate your ideas and patience with us as we work long and hard to keep making this the best online community out there!
  16. How was the cruise?! Curious minds want to know
  17. We don't have the option right now but we're definitely working on adding it to the Extra Life experience!
  18. We understand you may be waiting to register and book your flights for Extra Life United 2016 until more information on what you'd be getting yourself into is out there. Well, wait no more! Especially because registration will be closing at 11:59pm EST on Monday, February 8th! TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE Extra Life United 2016 will feature a round robin style tournament, where participants accumulate points for their performance each round. Participants will be placed in pods of 4-8 players depending on the track (PC, Console or Tabletop) and play a few different games with points being awarded to each round’s winners. On Thursday afternoon, the top 3 participants from each pod will be recognized and awarded prize money for their chosen Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. The first place participant from each pod will move on to the final round of the tournament and compete to win a portion of the Grand Prize Pool (a minimum of $100,000) for their hospital. Participants will be assigned to pods and have a chance to meet their competitors Tuesday night at the Extra Life Welcome Meeting. TOURNAMENT GAMES If you tuned into the official Extra Life Game Day broadcast last year, it should be no surprise that Rocket League is a team favorite. We hope it is one of yours too as it will be one of the games featured in the PC and Console tracks. If you’re thinking about signing up for the Tabletop track, we suggest you start practicing your bartering skills because some intense games of Settlers of Catan will be going down. We thought it would be fun to keep you on your toes and have element of surprise to your Extra Life United experience. Below are the complete game lists for each track. Note that we won't have time to get to all of the games listed (you can count on Rocket League and Settlers of Catan) so choose wisely on which games you spend your time practicing. Console Track Madden 16, Just Dance 2015, Halo 5, Quiplash, FIFA 16, Street Fighter, Rocket League PC Track Hearthstone, Rocket League, SpeedRunners, DOTA 2, StarCraft II, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends Tabletop Track Settlers of Catan, Blokus, Bananagrams, Sushi Go!, Fluxx, Connect Four, Boggle, Liar's Dice WAIT, THERE’S MORE! The fun doesn’t end when the tournament does. On Thursday, we’ve set up an “Open Play Night” for ELU attendees and our patient Champion families who will be there. Attendees will be able to game with and meet some of the kiddos that their involvement with Extra Life has had a direct impact on. These are some of the bravest kids you’ll ever meet who have gone through unimaginable hardships. While unlocking extra fundraising dollars for your hospital is great, gaming with these kids on Thursday night is the real reason you should register for Extra Life United 2016. You can 'meet' all of the Children Miracle Network Hospital Champion families from every state and province by reading their stories here. Those are all the updates for now. If you're on the fence about registering, decide quickly! While this event is something we wish everyone in the community could experience, spots are limited and registration is closing soon. For a complete schedule of events, visit the Extra Life United website here. REGISTER NOW!
