  • Community

  • What is a Room?

    A room is a part of the site that people use to come together and share their favourite songs. Each Room has a real-time chat that you can use to talk to everyone who is in there. Every song that is played is from a user-generated playlist.

  • How do I use role mentions?

    If you want to mention a specific role, you @ mention it like you would if you were mentioning a user. At this time, we currently support the following:

    • @everyone – Pings everyone online in the room. For mods only.
    • @djs – Pings everyone that is currently in the room queue. For mods only.
    • @mods – Pings everyone with the role Mod or higher.
    • @admins – Pings all admins online in the room.
  • Where can I find information about a Room?

    While you're in a Room, click on the INFO button above the video player and you will be able to see the information the staff have put in there. Most of the time, you can find Room rules and anything related to them in there.

  • Where can I find the song history in a Room?

    There are multiple methods of finding the song history. One of the easiest methods is to click on the Queue button above the video played and clicking on the Room history button on the left-hand side the browser.

  • What does the buttons on the bottom right do? (heart, up and down arrows)

    These buttons are used to show your appreciation to the current song playing in the Room:

    • Heart button – This is used to grab the current song playing and add it to your own playlist.
    • Up arrow – This is used to updub the current song playing. When you updub a song, one dub gets added to your total dub count in that Room. If you like the current song that is playing, updub it!
    • Down arrow – This is used to downdub the current song playing. On the contrary of the Up arrow, when you downdub a song a dub gets deducted from your total dub count in that room. If you don't like the current song that is playing, downdub it!

    Additionally, by the side of each actions there is a counter that tells you how many people have performed each action.

    Note: You need to be logged-in to use these buttons.

  • Dubs

  • What are dubs?

    Dubs are something you earn on Dubtrack. These dubs are stored per room, in other words, you don't get the same amount of dubs on every room.

    Currently, there is no use for dubs, but we would love to hear your suggestions on how we could use them.

  • How do I earn dubs?

    There are two different ways you can earn dubs in a Room:

    • Playing a song – this will give you the amount of updubs minus the amount of downdubs your song received.
    • Dubbing (updubbing or downdubbing) a song – this will give you or take away one dub, depending on the action.

    We do not allow for people to gift dubs to other uses. You can only give a dub to the current DJ if you updub their song.
