Questions about Plug.dj:

#afkWhat is AFK?

AFK stands for "Away From Keyboard". Because voting can be automated, the only way for us to know that you are at your keyboard and active is if you talk in Chat.

#waitlistWhy did I get removed from the Wait List?

Unless your internet disconnected you from the website you were removed for being AFK or "not active". In our room that is not talking in Chat for over 45 minutes and then not responding to our bot when he warns you as you reach the #5 spot in the Wait List. If you are removed from the list two times in a row the bot will ban you from the room for one hour. The reason for the ban will say "spamming", that is just the default reason on Plug.dj.

#chatWhy do I have to chat if all I want to do is play songs?

We prioritize the active users in the room over the inactive ones. When we first started the room a year ago we immediately had a full Wait List of 50 people. It was mostly people who left their accounts in the room all day trying to get points. Policing the Wait List for AFK was the only fair way we found to keep everyone from having to wait 6 hours to play one song. You don't have to be in the Wait List to listen to the music in the room. Also, our bot only requires one thing said in that time. A simple "nice song" compliment every once in a while is plenty.

#englishWhy do I have to speak in English here?

We welcome all nationalities in the room; however, most of our moderators are English speaking. It is unfair and inefficient to ask them to spend all of their time in the room translating the Chat when they have other duties to perform. Further, our room is a chat room and we prefer to be able to speak to everyone. That only works when we all use the same language, in this case, English.

#mehAm I not allowed to meh songs?

There are many rooms that do not allow users to meh songs. Unlike them, we want our users to have some voice over the content that is played in our room. Mehing songs is fine. Mehing most of the songs is not. Ask yourself why are you in a room that you hate most of the songs they play? If you meh a lot it will get you the wrong attention and we will ask you to leave.

#videoThe video is not available for me?

There are various reasons why you cannot see the current video. Sometimes it is because Youtube won’t allow it in your country. Other times it is because the rights holder doesn’t want to share it. This is not the fault of the current playing DJ, there is no way for them to know how far their video can be seen. Instead of mehing them, first hover your cursor over the video and click Refresh to choose an alternative video that will work for you. If you still have problems let us know in the Chat.

#emojiHow do you do the metal horns?

Type :metal:

It is called an emoji and part of a suite of characters that can be found here. Try not to spam our Chat with them.

#italicHow do I type in italics?

type "/me " before your sentence. It's to denote that you are doing an action from way back in the IRC days.

#etaThere isn't an !eta command?

Some rooms have an !eta command for their bot to tell you how long until you will be in the DJ booth and playing. We used to have that feature but found that it was causing too much Chat spam as everyone was constantly checking their time. The feature already exists on most plug-ins (see above). Alternatively you can do simple math. Average song times are 4 minutes.

4 minutes X your place in the Wait List = approximately your wait time

#expHow do I get experience?

Experience is gained naturally from just being in the room. Playing songs, voting, and chatting has no effect on it. The exp is added automatically per song.

Back to the top

#expstopDid I stop getting experience?

There is a daily limit to how much experience you can get. We guess that it is around 350 pts. You’ll reach that cap in 6 hours. The gain starts high and slowly trickles down to nothing. The limit resets every day which Plug.dj counts as 12:00 am GMT.

Back to the top

#pointsHow do I get more Plug Points? Image of the Plug Points currency

Those accrue naturally, just like experience points, except they have no cap. If you need some you can either get them as bonuses for some of the levels or you can keep your account in the room for as long as possible.

#rdjHow do I become a Resident DJ here?

Resident Djs are added based on: Regular House visitation (8-12 weeks,at least), playing by the rules, decent musical taste, and their ability to get along with other people! Residents should set a good example (Please Do Not Ask!).

#eventHow do I suggest an Event?

Grab a mod in the room and tell them your idea either there or in a Private Message where ever you can. We'll look into it and if we think it's do-able we'll move forward with it.

Back to the top

#hostHow do I help host an Event?

When you suggest an Event, let us know that you want to help run it that night (We'll also probably ask). If you know or see of an upcoming event you can also ask us to help if it isn't already close to the events date.

#nsfwWhat is NSFW?

NSFW is “Not Safe For Work”. It is anything that you would be uncomfortable to have your boss walk in on while on your computer. On Plug.dj this means videos that contain nudity and excessive gore. It is their policy that we immediately skip these songs. If we do not they will switch us to a Private room, none of you can find us, and it effectively kills us.

#pmCan we Private Message each other?

Plug does not currently have a private messaging feature. Some plug-ins and scripts have that as a feature if the other person is also using the same script. Notably, the Origem script.

#appIs there an app for Mobile?

Not yet. It’s been on the Plug.dj developers work list for years. It’ll make an appearance eventually but at this time there is no estimate for the time until it is released.
