Off-Topic » Mario Marathon 5 - June 22nd - Child's Play Charity Event

Right now the 5th annual Mario Marathon for Child's Play Charity is going. What is Mario Marathon? It is a video game marathon where they play all the major Mario console games and raise money for Child's Play Charity.

Here is a little FAQ I made that will help the new viewers this year.

Where can I donate?

You can donate by going to their donation page HERE. All the donations they receive go to Child's Play Charity via PayPal.

What can I do if I can't/don't want to donate?

Tell your friends and family about it. Also spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media websites to get more people to watch the live stream and spread the word.

Where can I watch the stream?

This year the stream feed will be on Twitch TV (http://www.twitch.tv/mariomarathon) instead of UStream which they have used in the past. You can also watch the Twitch TV feed on their own website (www.mariomarathon.com). If you watch it on their website, there are audience reaction buttons and if the viewers press one emote enough times, the players can hear it. It's a fun way to interact with the live stream.

Where can I chat with the viewers?

The main chat is on their IRC ChatAbout server #mariomarathon. You can connect to the IRC chat via their front page on the Mario Marathon website or through an IRC program. New this year is a Twitter Chat on the Mario Marathon front page. Just log in with you Twitter account and you can use the Twitter chat. If you wan to switch to the IRC chat, click the "Switch to IRC Chat" underneath the Twitter chat and if you want to switch back to the Twitter chat, click the "Switch to Twitter Chat" link. Need some IRC help? Here is their FAQ copied and pasted from the IRC help page.

General Discussion » Vicer Of The Month: October Nominations

@takashichea said:

There's a lot of people that I want to nominate, but I have to pick one.

I'll nominate Annabanana because she works so hard on Fairy Tail, Beelzebub, and Sket Dance despite her busy college schedule. For solo projects, she works on Buster Keel and Yankee kun to Megane Chan. That's not all though. She has better vocabulary than me, can articulate well in her writing, and is very sincere to new wiki editors. She's pretty fast on her bounty tasks. I couldn't catch up to her.

See Fairy Tail Bounty Hunter Blog

Best Episode Works

  • Fairy Tail 50 and 73.
  • Blue Exorcist 19
  • Beelzebub 35
  • Sket Dance 24

Best Characters

Lucy Heartphilia, Erza Knightwalker, Natsu Dragneel, Oga Tatsumi, Beelzebub.

@ShadowKnight508: @buhssuht:

Thanks. However, I think Anna deserves it more.

Instead of Vicer of the month, why not make these two mods? Just saying...

Just Anime » How often do you watch anime?

When I got back into anime again back in 09, I watched anime about everyday. Since I got my job in March, I haven't watched any since. Been taking a break from it. I will get back to watching it at some point.
