    I may stream it from home beforehand.

    ANYWAY, just putting this here for future reference why "a small group of people with money to spend" is exactly NOT representative of "which fighting game the community wants at Evo": https://twitter.com/Chindogg21/status/296970826840948736/photo/1
    I had the world's oldest signature so I replaced it with this.

    Psst.

    Hey Mike, I think you may know, but that's fake.

    The guy wanted to do that, but the Melee people were like "eat a dick, homie".

    It's fake, I wouldn't worry about it. (You can tell because the service fee is supposed to be 1% + $0.30, so this person donated $20 and pasted another number on it.

    But the fact that the situation is entirely viable is kinda bullshit. I mean I could drop like $50k for Skullgirls, get a nice refund in my taxes next year and my vote counts as much as 1000 people who donate $5 because they can't do more. Kinda messed up.

    And no, I don't have 50k... that's just theoretical lol

    Oh, I wasn't saying it's bad that it happened, I was saying that's bad that that kind of thing is possible, yes.

    [edit] Since you aren't donating directly TO BCRF, I'm not sure this really counts as a tax writeoff?

    I'm pretty sure you can. After all, you only need proof if you're audited, and if you are you have a confirmation e-mail and the drive links do state that all proceeds go to BCRF.

    From what I can see here:
    http://taxes.about.com/od/deductionscredits/a/CharityDonation.htm

    If BCRF is eligible, you can itemize your donations using the confirmation e-mails and claim them. But I'm not sure now. lol

    edit: Hmm. Interesting to note is that if you're claiming more than $250 you require a letter acknowledging your donation. Better get on that, high rollers.

    I have friends and a girlfriend, I'm doing okay.

    Then again if any of the above see this post, I'm going to get laughed at/bitch smacked.

    So keep this on the DL.
    Spoiler:

    Okay, how do I give this to Mike Z for the not raffle, or does this not count?

    EDIT:And I just find out I needed to donate 15 to get in, I would have just donated, not bought the poster.

    I think your best chance is to send proof with your request to sgevodonation@gmail.com, and put something like "ART REQUEST" in the title so that they know what you're asking for.
    Twenty years from now, fifty, a hundred, nobody will remember what games we played, or who won or lost.
    But that's okay.

    OK, I donated another 100 bucks for those 2 drawings and a chance into the raffle. I made sure to put both of those in the title of the e-mail.

    We're at the heavy damage phase, guys.

    Considering matching donations haven't been put in yet, I think this can happen.

    Sorry to use ST music, but goddamn it's so good, I wish heavy damage music came back in a game with good music.

    Micihiru Yamane, what's good?

    Mike actually requested that proof for separate rewards be sent in separate emails - makes it easier to sort and categorize the entries.

    Although if you already sent it in it may be too late for that.

    Oh... gah I missed that. I just thought it would be easier in 1 donation, at least on my card. it sometimes doesn't like multiple quick online transactions. Hope they will still take my donation request...

    Really, I'm not even mad. In total, we raised over TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS for Breast Cancer Research! Together, our two communities raised $172k ourselves. Seriously, pat yourselves on the back!

    Skullgirls fought tooth and nail, it proved it has strong community support, and made a lot of money to save boobs, that's all that matters in the end.
