  3. Every year since 2011, Sega-Addicts.com has done a Dreamcast Dreamless 24-Hour Marathon. From 2015 forward I have taken the reigns and hosted it from my home with staff members and friends joining. Most recently we learned about Extra Life and thought the Marathon was a great chance to raise some money! Collectively over the last two years we have raised over $1,500 for a local children's hospital! And now we are inviting all of you to join us on the internet to raise money for kids while enjoying Sega's last great console on 09/01/2018. This year, we are hosting from the Mega Visions Magazine Twitch page and more ready than ever to tackle some Dreamcast insanity to help the kids! You can check out last year's marathon on YouTube here. Stay tuned for the final schedule in the coming months! We also have a Reddit topic for game recommendations here! Now the die-hard Dreamcast fans will immediately notice we are not celebrating on the actual anniversary (09/09/99) of the console. We are celebrating on Labor Day weekend to allow easier travel for the out-of-towners. We hope you understand and decided to join the insanity on Twitch! Thanks for taking a look, folks. If you feel like helping out, you can print the flyer from the group page and share to all!

    Game Day Reminders!

    Game Day Reminders: 1. Promote your efforts on social media platforms. Download the Extra Life Facebook app 2. Stay hydrated and keep plenty of snacks ready! 3. Have a schedule or general hourly plan. Need some ideas? Check out the CMNH national stream schedule here. 4. Thank your supporters as they give or those who have already given 5. Celebrate your success! Include incentives or rewards after each hour. 6. Remember the why. Because it’s not game over for kids like London, Lars, and Matthew. 7. Have fun! Share your efforts and pictures on the Extra Life Atlanta Facebook group Need local support materials? Download them here.
  7. The fine folks at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia want to hear your plans for National Game Day this year. I know, I know, I’ve already asked you this before, but what if I told you that they’re going to send you a special 24-Hour Marathon “Survival Kit” for telling us how you plan on spending your marathon. We'll be reading what you've got going on and sending out kits to the first 20 CHOP participants!
  8. Hello Everyone, So what's your plans for your marathon this year? Or are you splitting your time up among a few days? As for myself; since I first learned of Extra Life, it has always been a group activity. I get together with a bunch of folks and we play video games separately, or together, for as long as we can. Honestly, we rarely last the full 24, but hey, I'm gettin' up there in years at this point! Last year was the first time I didn't setup the retro wall I'd had in previous years, and I'm thinking it might be time for a comeback. it made for a neat little distraction for folks who may want a break from their chosen game and just chill out with the old school stuff for a while. Anywho, I'm interested to see what the rest of you folks are gettin' up to this year! Thanks, Chris "LonestarF1" Redden
  9. I will be hosting a gaming marathon for 24 hours. A variety games will be played from Rocket League to PUBG. There will be giveways for anyone who donates money towards Charity event. Even with a $1 Donation to the event will get you entereed into a prize giveaway during the stream and you will have supported a great cause. We will be working together to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Every day CMNH treats kids with trauma, diabetes, cancer, surgeries and babies with NICU. Our donation goal will be $1000. The company I work for will also Match any donations we contribute the the event!! I hope everyone of you can add this into your calenders and tune in for some of the event. Thanks for you time and support everyone!!

  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. 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 (twitch.tv/siddichan) 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!

    Over these last few years, I've discovered passions of mine and things that make happy, and one of those things is giving back, especially when it comes to children. That's why instead of partying hard to celebrate turning 30, I'll be in the spirit of giving. On Saturday, May 7th starting at 12:00pm Pacific, I'll be playing video games for 30 hours straight to raise money for Children's Hospital Los Angeles through Extra Life, streamed live on Twitch. Instead of having people spend some cash buying me a drink at a bar or something, I'll be asking them to donate to my Extra Life page and make a difference in the lives of the children who come to CHLA. I've got some special benchmarks I'll be announcing for the stream, including the #ShaveIt or #SaveIt contest (inspired by @Zyaldar's idea), where the donators will decide if I shave my hair off or keep my hair. Details to be announced. Of course, feel free to join me at any point during my stream. I'll be playing the Overwatch Open Beta on PC. Some important links: Twitch Page Extra Life Page See you guys and gals this Saturday! #chla #extralife #extralifela #ForTheKids
