  1. No worries, just thought I would check. I am looking at writing my own app too as a learning exercise. I don't have any experience with Node or JavaScript so why not use the EL API to help learn a bit?
  2. Loving this app. I have a couple of questions for the developer... 1. Is it possible change the path where the files get written? 2. Is it possible to get a file that shows participant total raised / goal and team total / team goal? Thanks, Matt

    Extra Life on the Miracle Mall

    The size of the EL community has also grown nearly exponential over the last several years. What if they were to do a trial run with a limited amount of merch and when it's gone it's gone, to "test the waters" again and see if there is enough interest.

    Bee The Swarm

    This year I was introduced to Bee The Swarm, a crowdfunding platform that uses revenue from free mobile video games to fund good causes from around the world! The goal is to build a greener, friendlier, smarter, and more loving planet where people from all around the world have a fun and easy way to help each other build a better future. How it works: People play the FREE mobile games created by Bee The Swarm and earn bees. These bees can be donated to any number of swarm campaigns going on. Once a campaign receives enough bees, Bee The Swarm makes a contribution to your cause. I started a campaign for Extra Life and have already received a $50 donation and am working now on an additional $60 donation. To get started use the link provided above and create a FREE account as well as a FREE campaign. Download the 5 FREE mobile games and start playing. Next you start inviting your friends to join and start playing (friends do not need to start a campaign). The more people you get to play for your cause the faster you will reach your milestones. It has been a really cool, easy, and free way to help raise money for Extra Life. I hope you all check it out.
  8. First some background. This was my third year doing Extra Life. By day I am a software engineer focusing mainly on C#/.NET application development. I have a domain and a website already set up with my own instance of Wordpress (http://wirejunky.net). Now, how exactly do I get started utilizing the Extra Life API on my Wordpress site? I don't really have a clear idea what I even want to do with the data yet, but once I understand how to use it, it might help spark some ideas for what to do with it. I am a complete newbie when it comes to JSON and web development, so any help with getting started would be much appreciated. Thanks, Matt

    My Extra Life page My Twitch page I haven't yet set up a game schedule yet, but I have a retro console setup and am considering setting up a pay to play time. The donor gets to choose what game I play on NES, SNES, or Sega Genesis.
