  12. To my fellow Extra Lifers. (Especially the ones in Los Angeles) Me and my wife will be going to E3 this year and I was wanting to offer up some of our time if you guys do end up getting a booth this year like we did last year the get people signed up. I know it is months away, but I just wanted to offer it up if you needed it.
  13. Hello everyone! I put it to vote and the community had me change my habits. On Dec. 24th and 25th, I'll be doing a switch up of my Christmas 24 hour show to standard, but long (10 or so hours) shows. These shows will be just as myself. On Dec. 30-31st, I'll be doing yet another marathon. This time for 31 hours. This is my last hurrah for the Extra-Life campaign for this year, and since I've missed out on doing shows like this, it's time to do a few. Planning details, show breakdown and other things will come later. Due to the length of the show, I will not be Pandish. It's just too much to maintain for that many hours. My current total for the year is $1337.00 (Isn't that awesome of my community?). New Year Charity-thon As usual, I will require additional moderators and other support. If you have anything you'd like to drop in for ideas for the day, I'd love it! This show will be mainly for the General Audience, and will not contain any questionable language from me. The games I pick for the days will be multi-player or audience based. Things to keep the show energized, and myself awake. If you can participate in the show as multi-player participant, throw a PM/shout at the channel Discord. More news to come as I update.
  14. Here we are, getting ready for Extra-Life Game Day on November 5th! Could it be possible that you would be in need of extra saucy graphics to give some much needed flavor to your broadcast? Well if that is the case, I'm very happy to offer anybody in the Extra-Life community an opportunity to have quality graphics for their streams FOR FREE! Simply contact me as a reply to this thread with your Twitch channel URL and any preferred means of communication. (Now don't go putting your phone number or e-mail address in here you silly-bun; Twitter, Curse, Skype or Discord is more what I'm thinking of. You can also send your communication ID as a separate private message. STAY SAFE!!) I can do about any extend of regular twitch channel graphics : Banners, Panel art, Overlays, Camera Frame, etc. The only thing I cannot do in a timely manner is any form of animated graphics, video intros, or anything of the like. Still images are easy enough for me to produce to be able to deliver within a few days at most. Also; please note that if the response to this gesture of good will is unbelievably large, I'll have to resort to putting people on "Wait Lists" and I'll do as much as can until Game Day so that as many of you as possible have their new graphics elements ready for the great day and have you look dapper as you collect these handy donations that you wonderful people work so hard for! So Kudos to every single one of you Miracle-cakes for being part of a wonderful initiative, and make it quick, November 5th is here REAL SOON! Game on bros! -VinceInTheNorth
  15. I will be holding a 24-hour Extra-Life Marathon the weekend of November 11th, alongside Veterans' Day. This will be my Game day. The stream to start Friday the 11th at 4PM and go on to Saturday the 12th, 4PM. Scheduled breaks will occur (some unscheduled, depending on my own ability to stay hyper). Games on the menu are up in the air at this point, but I'm gathering them. I do need interactive chat members and temporary moderators. I will also have a drawing segment to commemorate the stream towards the last 4 hours. This stream will be kids friendly, with myself dressed up as Pandish, my mascot. The games will also be kid friendly so there is a needs list. If you can fulfill any of these roles and are available on Friday - Saturday, let me know. Moderators - Can be taken in shifts. Must monitor chats. Clear lines of text that may be offensive, provide warnings to the poster via PM, and if they continue, ban. Two chances, and you're out is the rule. No external links outside of what's programmed with the bot. I will talk about your local or online events related to Children's if you give me a heads up. 4 PM - 10 PM 10 PM - 4 AM 4 AM - 10 AM 10AM - 4 PM (Closing ceremonies may run longer) Casual Chatters and those who can keep the ( channel open for the duration of the show. More -concurrent- viewers and chatters mean more exposure to the cause on Twitch search. Discord buddies - On and off, Discord events will start up where you can come in to chat. I did send an email to Jane and Alyssa at Children's about possible interviews. If you would like to be interviewed, throw me a PM via Discord and tell me the 5 W's. (Discord Link - feel free to join the community shenanigans) The interview slots will be based on availability. I am searching for Miracle families to interview and share their stories over Skype, or other. I will update this thread as necessary. Thanks!

  17. Does anyone know what timer this is and how it works? It was used by KindaFunny Games last year. I would love to have something like this on our Marathon coming up and would appreciate the insight and help. This shows an active counter showing how many hours online and donations received. I appreciate the help. See the VOD link below to see it in action. VOD Link:
  18. Hello, Our community is having its first marathon for Extra Life and the Kentucky Children's Hospital on 10-21 and 10-22 for 25 hours. We are wanting to reach out about a few things. #1: Are there new graphics and materials for 2016 or is everything the same from last year? #2: Is there a donation tracker where would could have on during our marathon just what we are raising instead of having our end goal? We use the built-in widget now through StreamPro. #3; Is there any kind of countdown timer to Extra Life to bring in Hype for the marathon we are having? I would appreciate the help and feedback on all the questions we have!

  23. Children's Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha, NE is a 100% Free-Healthcare providing non-profit hospital serving a number of states in the region! Team Omaha is the official team for Extra-Lifers joining in to participate! This wonderful hospital lacks a guild because of a low number of participants every year! Help us build a Guild for this hospital by joining in as a participant! More participants mean more incentives (Top 3 prizes, incentives, etc.) and I would love to support you on your own efforts! The hospital marketing team even created a wonderful logo for us to use, so if you're joining in, feel free to take advantage of the picture! Show your efforts in an official basis! You can contact me if you have any questions or just reply to this thread! I'll do my best to answer them and help you out! Also, don't forget to tell any friends you may have who would be interested in joining in. Remember, participation is not inclusive to video game broadcasting and anyone can just bring the information into a work place or a school and spread the word!
