Hey everyone, your friendly neighborhood moderator Rakuen here. I am absolutely amazed at the generosity everyone has shown through the course of this marathon. I knew we would smash the donation, but I never thought we'd be closing in on tripling it. I think we need a round of applause for all the donators, all 3116 at the time of this donation. Second, much appreciation to those in the chat who behaved themselves and were respectful throughout the marathon. It's never easy moderating a chat this big, and we had problems at times, but you all were a big help with keeping the +M off as much as possible. Round of applause for you. Finally, thanks to all the moderators and players who donated their time and energy for this event. Again, it's staggering to think we started two years ago with CGDQ, and here we are now. We'd never have gotten this far without your commitment. Final round of applause goes to you. This is my last donation of the marathon, and I'm putting it toward Counter kill for Sephiroth. See you all at the bonus streams, and then the next marathon. Maybe SGDQ2?
Hey everyone, this is your friendly neighborhood moderator Rakuen in the chat. By the time this gets read, we should be well on our way past the $80k donation goal. It's amazing how far SDA and its marathons have come in a few short years. You should all be proud of yourselves for contributing to its success. As for what to do with my donation. Last year a fellow by the name of SMK helped SDA defeat Cancer. Since we're all still here, it's evident Cancer still wants to battle. So, I want to put half of this donation toward naming the Pokemon trainer SDA, and the other half toward naming the rival Cancer. SDA will beat Cancer again.
