It's time to start promoting the next marathon! If you are spreading the word please post a link or description here and we'll get you a medal when it is created.

You can promote in any way you can think of. A topic on a forum, a video on YouTube, make a shirt, posters, business cards, etc. You will not be guaranteed a medal if you cannot provide a link to your promotions or a photo of it.


Some information to include:

The upcoming Metal Gear Marathon starts June 19th at 6:00PM and will run for 72 hours.

TheSpeedGamers have been streaming video game marathons for over a year to raise money for various charities. In total they have raised over $32,000 dollars and played 10 marathons. This marathon will not be for a charity however, it's a thank you to our fans and viewers.

We've got some big news, and will have prizes to be won.

Include a link to the site (http://www.thespeedgamers.com) where the marathon can be watched, and you could mention the bustling community, podcast and video content.

Talking briefly about the other summer marathons (Final Fantasy and Mega Man) will help grab some more attention as well.


Thanks to everyone promoting. Now get to it. :D

I will get right on this. As always, I will make a picture of the game series with the info and put it as my youtube background, and this time around will make a video too.

So the secret marathon is Megaman?! Thanks, I must have missed when it was announced. _awesome_

would posting the banner in my aib/gb accounts and as a background on my youtube account count as a promotion? (This is of course when the banner is chosen) Also i plan on making a video as soon as my capture card gets here.

I'll probably end up making a poster and putting copies around town. Unfortunately, my area has some pretty strict rules about putting up posters (of all the things to be picky about...), so it might be a while before I get any of them up.

Alright, here's the first draft. What do you guys think, did I miss anything?

We had two or three Bulbanews (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Front_page) articles going promoting the marathon. Those get displayed on the front page, people with a Bulbanews RSS feed get a notice, etc. etc.

To save you some time, here are the articles, if people are interested.

*Initial notice (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Speed_Gamers_want_to_catch_every_Pok%C3%A9mon)

*Right beforehand (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Speed_Gamers_catching_Pok%C3%A9mon_for_charity_tod ay)

*And afterwards (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Speed_Gamers_catch_429_Pok%C3%A9mon)

Also, the TSG article does need a bit of expanding if anyone wants to help both Bulbapedia and TSG out. I've only been here since the Pokémon marathon, so I'm not very familiar with the first nine or so months.

Thanks!

hmmm well what I did in one of my promo videos was just use the song uncut, then just went along with random cutscenes from MGS3. You could just try that, another idea is to try to import the MP3 into Audacity (a free sound editing/recording program) and edit the MP3 that way. It all depends on your ideas and where you want to go with them. Just remember to have fun!

Hey, could someone post a list of the games that will be played in the marathon? I want to make sure I mention all of them in my video.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found this in another topic:

Metal Gear 1
Metal Gear 2
Metal Gear Solid 1
Metal Gear Solid 2
Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid 4
Will the spinoffs be played as well?

That'll definitely help as well. I was planning on trying to sync up the audio with some pictures and text. Nothing too fancy.

They're supposed to be playing Ghost Babel and Twin Snakes, but not Portable Ops (I'm guessing they don't have a PSP or the PSP component cables to play them on TV).

I've been showing the site nonstop and typing on it and letting people see the fourms all week. Maybe I'll attract some people. I made two new friends who might join if they're interested. Still tryin to get my older friends on, but it just depends if they think they'll have time or not, a lot of them are goin to college soon and might be too busy to be active. T.T But I'm tryin my hardest to show off the site and a lot of people are kinda like:

"Metal Gear marathon?"
me:"Yeah."
them: "...Cool. Maybe I'll check it out."
me: "Sweet, it'd be great if yall joined!"

I wanna t-shirt and I want to promote the marathons more. So I hope the store opens up. When I get a job, and can donate or buy things, I'm gonna use my money! :D

That's great Letifer!

I'm sorry to break this to you, but there will not actually be a charity this marathon. ACT Today will be for the Final Fantasy Marathon. That doesn't matter though, the point is to get people to the site and you have done it. Thanks. :D


Hmm... We better get on creating a medal for our promoters... :|

@BlackExcalibur - Some of your links are down, and some are private. Please take a picture and post it! :)

@SilverLPJ - Your promotion requires a registration on the forum. Please take a picture and submit it.

@Lucazard - I do not see anything on that website detailing our upcoming marathon.

Also I would like for everyone to know, if you have any doubt that we will be able to see your promotion...please provide a picture. That makes things more streamlined and allows us to give out medals at a faster rate.

I, thought, will be doing my job on the promoting as a Finnish, with the language, when I'll get to it, and will most likely be posting them here as well as soon as the possibilities are with me.

Ctrl + c + Print Screen, then save the picture by right-click paste on your desktop, or by pasting it and editing it in Paint, Photoshop, etc. Simple. :geek:

I feel stupid now... I told a friend about the Metal Gear Marathon, and he seemed interested... but I forgot to give him the web address, and I don't know if I'll see him again before Friday. :P Maybe he'll remember the name Speed Gamers and go from there, though.

I'm gonna rave about it at work tomorrow, tell my step-sister when she gets here on Saturday (she actually likes the games, so if I bug her enough and look over her shoulder I'm sure she'll make it to the site.

I 'faned' Matches' promotion, and I'll mention it on my facebook.

And finally, if I remember my Twitter account....I'll post it there x3

@diddyknux - I see you have a youtube page, maybe put it in your info? Seems like a simple solution :)

@RuJu - When you post on twitter, be sure to take a picture and show us :)

@nmfred - Please post an image :D

@Everyone:
The Staff and Admins are treated no differently than you guys. I haven't awarded Sonic a medal yet because he hasn't posted an image yet. You can blur or black your name out if you want, but we want people to post images of their promotion that are on external sites because we can't go around going every forum or community that someone posts on. To keep it simple and fair, if your promotion is on an external site...that isn't a video, please post an image.

ETA: Having a hard time uploading an image right now, so I'll do so later when it's working.

Did some twittering and will probably tweet about it all weekend, when im not at work. Also, if your going to promote on twitter, put #TSGMGS in your tweet and maybe we can get a trending topic.

Also, im not going to post a screenshot of it, but I sent an E-mail over to the owner of www.geeksofdoom.com (http://www.geeksofdoom.com), which is a great blog, and asked him to maybe do a little post about it. So if you see a post on that site, it was because of me.

It's time to start promoting the next marathon! If you are spreading the word please post a link or description here and we'll get you a medal when it is created.

You can promote in any way you can think of. A topic on a forum, a video on YouTube, make a shirt, posters, business cards, etc. You will not be guaranteed a medal if you cannot provide a link to your promotions or a photo of it.


Some information to include:

The upcoming Metal Gear Marathon starts June 19th at 6:00PM and will run for 72 hours.

TheSpeedGamers have been streaming video game marathons for over a year to raise money for various charities. In total they have raised over $32,000 dollars and played 10 marathons. This marathon will not be for a charity however, it's a thank you to our fans and viewers.

We've got some big news, and will have prizes to be won.

Include a link to the site (http://www.thespeedgamers.com) where the marathon can be watched, and you could mention the bustling community, podcast and video content.

Talking briefly about the other summer marathons (Final Fantasy and Mega Man) will help grab some more attention as well.


Thanks to everyone promoting. Now get to it. :D

I'm not sure I'll still be able to get the medal(If I don't get it, then I won't care much that I didn't, as that would be just sad), but I'll be 100% honest here when I say that wasn't exactly my main reason for making my promo vid; I actually wanted more people to come watch the marathon itself and it's awesomeness. And bringing up my YT vid count is nice, too _awesome_
