    @ambassadorkael in past years there has been a "everyone who donates $X will get this set of STO in-game items" part of the event, but that isn't listed in the blog. Is it not happening this year?

    That's gotten me to open my wallet in the past. The giveaways for viewers don't interest me since I won't be watching the streams this year.

    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    Hey! Guess what, guys? This thread isn't about bugs or bug fixes. So, you're derailing it. Go to the Bug Subforum to talk about bugs that you want fixed. Thanks.

    Extra Life Charities parent company is called Children's Miracle Network. There is most likely a hospital LOCAL to YOU affiliated in this network of children's hospitals you may feel better about giving to directly.

    Children's hospitals may not even be what you are interested in donating to at all....but the Devs are.
    Nothing wrong with that.

    Don't take out your frustrations about the game and bugs on method they choose to use for fundraising.
    They (Children's Miracle Network) found a creative way to get Gamers involved.

    Seriously, if you're not interested in the event or discussing it here, then take it elsewhere, because you're derailing the thread.

    If you want to give directly to a children's hospital, another way is Child's Play - go to their site, click on the map, and you can see the Amazon wish list / gift registry for a hospital. The toys and games you buy get sent directly to the hospital. Go to: childsplaycharity.org

    They are actually going to play Star Trek Online at 10am on Saturday. THAT should be interesting.
    I bet they are in Winter Wonderland. Time to dig out the SNOW BALLS!!! LOL!

    Nice info. & thanks for the link. As much as I think Cryptic personnel could/should be focusing on other STO things most times this is definitely one of those other times it can be better & help to focus on things like this. I'll try to view the STO streaming content.

    Seriously people...the devs are doing something nice for KIDS who seriously ill and you all want to go a diatribe about the whatever minor thing. REALLY?!? So this is the world we live in now...great.

    Agreed, some of you people have no class at all.

    This is for a good cause, good for the people at Cryptic for doing this!

    Corporate involvement in charity is nothing new. The company I worked for had a program where many employees would donate a day's pay to a registered charity of their choice. If you want to give to a charity in your area it's usually best to forgo the middle man and send them a cheque directly.

    In my own mid sized city and its surrounding area some major hospitals and other larger or more well known charities get relatively large to huge donations and it can be the smaller charities that are often left wanting.

    As I obviously can’t watch the whole stream what time(s) will you be giving away codes for STO?

    I dozed off waiting for the stream to return. Took a few tries to get it to play when I came back. Watching now.
    I did promote this w/2 posts on my enjin wall. ;)
    Is 2:40pm PST/5:40pm EST Star Trek: Bridge Crew still on at that time?

    facebook is a far worse mess than twitch is. I can't livestream through either as feed breaks, and I can only watch the recorded segments, which are fragmented, and suffer audio issue roulette.
    Neither one will even let me use chat.
    well I tried. I am gonna run to the store now then make dinner. Back to QWW after dinner.

    I hope they raise a decent amount for the hospital. ;)

    I didn't have time to sit and watch....until last night, late. And they were playing a Magick the Gathering card game? I couldn't figure out what was going on by just watching...so I went to read a book. I was tired, anyways.

    But my Christmas lights are up outside. :) Just need a few more tweaks.....

    I must have either missed the part in the feed, or misread the blog - it sounded like there was going to be a giveaway code for everyone, but it seems that codes were only given to donors.

    I'm not really upset about that, but it could have been better communicated.

    I'm not sure where you're seeing anything to that effect. In the blog, the codes were mentioned in the same pile of loot as the SSD, headsets, posters, and other physical goodies that can't possibly be given away to all viewers. In context, the codes were given away on the stream as part of random draws (not specifically to donors). Donations during the stream segments caused fun things to happen (ex. talking about upcoming content, helping dice rolls, playing with no hands, dancing, sponsoring a Jeff, causing opponents to draw cards) but did not interact with any of the giveaways. They also spent some time explaining these mechanics during each run.

    What donors at or above $15 receive one of two special event pins (physical item) while supplies last.
