So, I'm becoming very hesitant about having the marathon during the suggested December 27 to 30 dates for various reasons. While I understand that my request for games not run during the last marathon is tough due to how much we did last time, nobody's volunteered for such a game yet. Twitch.tv is experimenting with new pages, and the new pages may prevent embedding ChipIn or any HTML whatsoever; they have promised alternative donation options, but this would need to be finalized in time. XSplit captures screen regions by disabling Windows Aero, and as such I cannot smoothly screen capture since I've upgraded to Windows 8 (it and SCFH are the *only* incompatible programs on my machine, go figure). I may struggle to get time off from work to manage things, as the entire month of December is considered sacred in retail and a different job offer I was working with seems to have disappeared. I was hoping SonicAD, as site admin, would be more involved, but he is still rarely active. AGDQ pulling some people away from this marathon doesn't overly limit us, but it is a slight limitation in a growing set.
I'm going to look at things after the weekend's over, and if I think I can still put something together quickly, I'll do so. Otherwise, we may aim for the next holiday break around Easter, again keeping it small to not interfere if we make the summer marathon annual.
