View Full Version : [Music] PokeCommunity Radio Room

April 18th, 2013, 4:55 PM
[css-div='padding-left: 50px;'][css-div="width: 600px; text-align: justify; font-family: droid sans;"]

Welcome one and all to PokeCommunity's very own online radio room (http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/), hosted in Culture & Media by yours truly! This used to be the only radio around, but since it had to be taken down temporarily due to personal complications, other channels were made in its absence. Hopefully, we eventually start to use this as the communal radio stream again, but in the meantime, this is is a place for members to come together, create a playlist of their favorite tracks, and play them for their friends while at the same time chatting and carrying on like no-one's business. It's a fabulous combination of listening to music while hanging out with your fellow PokeCommunity members.

Written below is a list of things that are required to be done to start listening to music.

[css-div=font-family: droid sans; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold;]Signing in[/css-div]Easiest step, probably, besides actually listening to music - just register as the instructions are provided.

[css-div=font-family: droid sans; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold;]Creating your playlist[/css-div]• Click the 'My Playlists' button in the top left portion of the page.
• Next to 'Your Playlists' in the top left corner of the window that pops up, click 'New.'
• This will bring up a window that asks you to choose a name for your playlist. After doing so, click 'Create Playlist.'

[css-div=font-family: droid sans; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold;]Composing your playlist[/css-div]• Click the purple bullet list button in the lower left corner.
• At the top is a search bar. Type in the name of the video you want and hit enter.
• As the results are displayed, you may choose the one you want and click the plus sign to the right. It will drop down a list of your current playlists. You can click the playlist you want to add the video to and after confirming, the video will be appended to the playlist! Rinse and repeat until you've created the perfect playlist.
• You can rearrange the order of your songs by clicking and dragging them to their new locations while viewing the playlist.

[css-div=font-family: droid sans; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold;]How to DJ[/css-div]When you're done, you're ready to DJ! Click the button in the middle-bottom of the screen that says 'Click to DJ.' Once you've done that, you'll be added to the DJ queue and when your turn comes up, the first video in your playlist will start playing. Once done, you'll be shuffled back to the end of the queue, or you can choose to leave it by clicking 'Quit DJing.'

This may all seem like a lot, but it's very simple and very fun once you know what you're doing. Please do consider coming and jamming out to your favorite tracks with us sometime, alright? So what are you waiting for? Click here to join us and start DJing (http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/)! If there are any questions, please direct them to the host and Moderator of the section, LORD ANTE.[/css-div][/css-div]

Well, I guess it's time I go and actually make that plug.dj account! <3 This is definitely an awesome idea and I'm really glad to see it here. :)

April 18th, 2013, 5:45 PM
This is totally awesome. It's similar to turntable.fm, but actually way better in that it lets you cycle more than five people. Enjoying it so far! JakeAlt14 on it!

April 18th, 2013, 5:48 PM
Very cool and colorful website. :3 I'm there as lilblade.

April 18th, 2013, 5:54 PM
This sounds like a fun idea. Just hope people mind my music. :) I already have an account fortunately cause I've used this and turntable.fm many times before. What's better about this is that you can use youtube videos if you don't have the song on your computer or if it isn't in their library.

I'm also AWsquared in there as well.

April 18th, 2013, 6:00 PM
I'm glad you guys think this is a good idea and like it so far! Feel free to use it whenever. Though I'll periodically host specific nights for everyone to gather 'round and listen to tunes with each other, casual gatherings are encouraged whenever you guys want to, such as right now! :]

April 18th, 2013, 6:42 PM
Wow What a cool idea! Can't wait to try it out sometime when I have the time.

April 29th, 2013, 2:38 AM
awesome idea! It's good for discovering good music and meeting people :D

I'm there as Avishka!

April 29th, 2013, 2:50 AM
This sounds fun! I'll be there as synerjee. Let's get this party started!

April 29th, 2013, 3:15 AM
There's some people in there apparently right now.

We need this to be more active guys!

April 29th, 2013, 3:33 AM
I thought I'd give it a go, looks pretty good actually!

April 29th, 2013, 6:06 AM
It's a pretty cool program, and it definitely deserves more attention! :)

May 23rd, 2013, 7:13 PM
Hey, everyone! Just dropping by to say that I'll be hosting the first Community Radio Night this coming Saturday, May 25th in the plug.dj (http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/) room! All you have to do to participate is show up on May 25th around 5PM CST (GMT -6) and hang out with us for a little while while relaxing, chatting, and listening to music! Doesn't that sound like a grande evening? Get ready to have some fun! :D

May 23rd, 2013, 7:30 PM
Oh sounds fun and I really hope it makes activity in the Radio Room go up ten times more. Hopefully I'm on around that time and can be there.

May 25th, 2013, 6:56 PM
Soooo I got hung up in some things and then completely forgot about Radio Night, so I'm rescheduling it for Saturday, June 1st. I'm really sorry for those who cleared a few minutes tonight to come around. I'd appreciate if you did it again next week, cuz I'd love to see you. :)

June 1st, 2013, 5:28 PM
Radio Night is starting right now! Click here if you'd like to join (http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/)! 8)

June 1st, 2013, 8:34 PM
Is it still going on? I was there for a few minutes a it was rather dead in there.

June 1st, 2013, 8:42 PM
It ended about an hour and a half ago, actually. :(

It was an alright turnout, though. Not as many people showed up that I would have liked, but for those that did, I do appreciate your time and hoped you had fun. The people that I recorded that showed up were as follows:
Twilight Sky
ZetIf you showed and I forgot to record your name, just know that I appreciated your time as well. 8) I do hope all of these people and more show up at the next one!

June 1st, 2013, 8:55 PM
I was only in there for a few minute but it was after the event was over I couldn't make it to the actual event. You should do it more though that seems like more of a turnout than I expected. This room doesn't seem to get much attention and I'm hoping for more things like this to draw people in there. I sort of want to see this room to be popular cause I've used turntable.fm a lot before which is similar to plug.dj and it's really fun. So please do have more events like this. :)

June 1st, 2013, 9:19 PM
I was asleep when you were hosting, Ante. Sorry :( Will try to make it next time!

I'm playing some songs if anyone's planning to drop by.

June 2nd, 2013, 10:53 AM
I work late on weekends so I had to sit this one out, Totally hoping to catch the next one though:)

July 16th, 2013, 10:41 PM
If any PCers wanna pop their heads in sometimes, you might be able to catch couple of us playin our tunes. Just sayin, feel free to hang out anytime!

July 29th, 2013, 7:37 PM
Anyone still use this? I just made a playlist on it.

August 9th, 2013, 3:32 PM
I still use it sometimes and I am using it right now, but it's a little empty atm.

October 26th, 2013, 9:29 AM
Let's bring this back to life for the day of the dead! Tomorrow night, Sunday, October 27th, at around 6PM EST, I'll be hosting a Radio Night to celebrate Halloween! Come join us and play your favorite spooky jams and chat with some of your GE friends and anyone else that wants to join in! :3c

October 26th, 2013, 3:06 PM
I'll be there :P Prepare for continuous replay of thriller lololololol nah probably lotsa daft punk :3

October 26th, 2013, 3:23 PM
I'll try to be here as well. Searching for scary musics hehehe

October 27th, 2013, 11:28 AM
There's about two and a half hours left before the Radio Night kicks off!

October 27th, 2013, 1:57 PM
Radio Night is starting! \o/ http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/

It's not over, but I've had to go for now, so! A big thanks to the people that showed up:

Starlight Sprite
Magic Fox
Sector Revenge

If anyone else shows up, just say so in this thread, and I'll make note of it. :]

October 27th, 2013, 2:13 PM
Come on out! Here's to a good time!

October 27th, 2013, 3:34 PM
I'm in there now if it isn't too late :3

October 27th, 2013, 3:40 PM
I'm in there now if it isn't too late :3

It's never too late - I left awhile ago for internet issues, but everyone's still enjoying themselves!

December 21st, 2013, 6:09 PM
Would there be interest in a hangout on Christmas Eve/Day? I don't imagine Christmas Day, but for the sake of asking, ya know?

December 21st, 2013, 6:12 PM
I would be interested - I have a playlist of Christmas songs, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea for me personally. Yes, but there are logistic obstacles.

December 21st, 2013, 8:16 PM
I would definitely be interested on Christmas Eve for sure :) but as John said, maybe not so much on Christmas Day, but it wouldn't hurt to have an event on both days

December 22nd, 2013, 9:39 AM
I'm definitely up for it as I won't be doing much during Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

December 22nd, 2013, 10:31 PM
Sure, I can hang around for a bit on Christmas Eve! Maybe I'll even clean my room while listening to Christmas songs. That'll get my bones moving.

December 22nd, 2013, 10:37 PM
Mkay, then let's count on a meet-up on the radio on Christmas Eve around 4/5 PM CST. Sound good? :D

December 24th, 2013, 2:09 AM
I'll try to stop by if im not already doing something :]

December 24th, 2013, 2:26 PM
Meet will be in about a half hour! :] Bring a couple Christmas songs with you; 'tis the season, and all that.

Merry Christmas Eve btw, guys!

December 24th, 2013, 4:53 PM

Razor Leaf
Aura Blackquill

Thank you guys for coming; hope you had fun! Merry Christmas! :D

December 24th, 2013, 5:05 PM
Aww dang I haven't been in the radio room in gaes and missed a great Christmas party. :( Though plug.dj hasn't been working so well for me lately so i probably couldn't go in there anyway....Oh well. Let me know when something else is going down though , okay Dave? :P

July 17th, 2014, 2:21 AM
Hey all, I was thinking of doing some themed radio nights in the near future. Ideas for possible themes? Themes being a general topic or message all the music must address/convey/fall under, you know?

July 22nd, 2014, 5:16 PM
Late, however themes could be stuff like nostalgia, pop, 70s, 80s. Stuff like that.

July 23rd, 2014, 4:44 AM
There is no "my playlists" button anymore.

Never mind, figured it out. I made a rock/metal room if anyone's interested in that.

July 25th, 2014, 6:09 AM
This is rather dead, which is sad. So I'm proposing an event on the 28th of this month. Let's say around 12am GMT (6pm CST). The theme could be summer - generally uplifting music that would be blasted at say a summer BBQ or a beach party

August 9th, 2014, 7:46 PM
It has been in Maintenance Mode the past few days, but plug.dj is back up! To celebrate the end of Summer DJ Banner will be hosting a few hours of of the dopest tracks this summer; everyone is welcome! Come in and check out the new plug.dj here (http://plug.dj/pokecommunity/).

When the event will start: 9PM EST tomorrow night. It will last however long you guys would like. If there is enough interest, we can also play Cards Against Humanity as well.

I'm also on tonight for a while if anyone else would like to join.

October 26th, 2014, 6:04 PM
Is there any chance we'll be having a Halloween radio event this year?

Last year's event was so much fun! If no one is up to host it i'll be happy to host it.

EDIT: It seems like no one is stepping up to host so I'll be hosting the event on Wednesday the 29th starting at 7pm Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5:00)
If anyone isn't familiar with the Halloween radio event then all ya gotta do is go to the plug site for Pokecommunity (stated in OP) and you can make a playlist and DJ (our theme for Halloween is spooky music. PLEASE try and play music you think is appropriate), chat around with us and jam to the tunes, whatever you'd like! :) I'll be making a list of the participants I notice if anyone wants to do something with that.

Bidoof FTW
October 29th, 2014, 2:59 PM
So me being the baddy that I am.. I forgot it was daylight savings time so im here early! If anyone wants to come and play some normal jams for a bit before it starts I'll be here lol

October 29th, 2014, 5:27 PM
I'm not hosting a Halloween radio night because I can't come around on Halloween day and I've been too flighty lately to organize it properly. Sorry about that. Do feel free to gather and enjoy some Halloween-themed music on the 31st if there's that interest, though. :]

October 31st, 2014, 1:22 PM
Is this happening or nah...

January 11th, 2015, 7:56 PM
So, in short, my computer will prevent me from hosting radio nights for the foreseeable future since I can't listen to music or watch videos. I still invite you all to take the initiative to gather on your own terms and enjoy yourselves. That said, I'm unsticking this thread. Feel free to use it as a method of planning times to gather, if you wish. Once I'm able to host them myself, we'll see about doing something all together, hehe

sorry friends.

January 18th, 2015, 8:50 AM
is anyone down for this or..

January 18th, 2015, 8:54 PM
most certainly if three or more people get involved

January 19th, 2015, 6:22 AM
I'd be up for this at some point!!

February 15th, 2015, 7:43 PM
maybe if there was a date we could get more people, how about wednesday/thursday? it's nice to have something to jam to while doing hw

May 20th, 2015, 6:47 PM

I've updated the OP so that it reflects the most recent changes to plug.dj, so now it should be pretty straightforward to begin using it if you're at a loss. :] There are a couple of activities ensuing that will involve the radio, and I would like to host a radio night very soon.

anyone interested have any prospective dates + times that work for them? Optimally, I'd like this Sunday evening around 5-7pm CST, or earlier in the day for anyone in timezones that should be worked around. I want this to have as many people as possible playing as much excitable music as we can, so anyone and everyone should involve themselves if they can!

May 21st, 2015, 7:29 PM
This Sunday sounds great, but I'll be having company over 2-4 pm PDT my time possibly? A little after that I'd be free most likely.

May 21st, 2015, 10:00 PM
I was actually contemplating just popping in and playing whatever sometime this weekend anyway, so o guess Sunday works.

May 23rd, 2015, 9:00 PM
This Sunday sounds great, but I'll be having company over 2-4 pm PDT my time possibly? A little after that I'd be free most likely.

okay, 1-2 my time works

So we can start this around 13-14 hours from now! I'll announce it again closer to when we should be getting together, so don't worry about forgetting. hope to see a bunch of faces

May 24th, 2015, 10:35 AM
let's get this going in half an hour!

May 24th, 2015, 10:55 AM
I'm on and waiting (heidy)

May 24th, 2015, 11:51 AM
I'm on and waiting (heidy)

i'm so sorry, it started storming here an hour ago and my net has been knocked out since

June 3rd, 2015, 1:27 PM
i'll be on while i study for a bit if anyone's interested @goldsun

July 20th, 2015, 4:30 PM
I'm going to pop in here in a few minutes if anyone wants to join me for a random assortment of songs.

July 20th, 2015, 5:39 PM
Such a shame that this isn't being seen anywhere in PC. I would have known about this by then.

July 21st, 2015, 8:05 PM
I'm going to be listening to some metal on here in a little bit if anyone wants to hop on with me.

July 23rd, 2015, 12:50 AM
I do wish this was more publicized.

July 23rd, 2015, 5:09 PM
Me and fattestsnorlax are there now listening to some stuff if anyone wants to pop in and join us. And yeah this does need some more publicity. Maybe some blog posts and dedicated music nights to get some more people to come around.

July 23rd, 2015, 5:13 PM

I know that feel bro.

July 23rd, 2015, 5:38 PM
We've got gimmepie and Rukario in here listening to some metal now too :) join while the joining's hot.

September 4th, 2015, 11:52 AM
perhaps some of us can together Saturday night as a sort of Labor Day gathering?

September 4th, 2015, 12:51 PM
as long as I'm home, I'm in. 8)

September 4th, 2015, 12:59 PM
I'll be there since I won't be doing much anyways.

October 6th, 2015, 5:03 AM
y'all know plug is gone right

October 6th, 2015, 10:57 AM
damn I didn't know that. I will find something else fun. 8)
