There is a story of a man that wanted the world made of gold. Different variations talk about how he obtain the gift to turn everything he touched into gold. Eventually the gift became a curse because gold can not be eaten and he accidentally touched his daughter. In the good version the curse was lifted, in the bad version the curse stayed and he dies weeping that the feet of the golden statue that was his daughter. That reminds me of that group. 

We have so many talented DJs and room builders, right now there are rooms that were made by one builder and a designer made it fucken amazing. I really hope for more events and that more people like Jessica put what she saw as ways for a room to succeed, minus that if i am there. If i go to a room it is because i wanna see or hear music like everyone here. I love that Jess is always doing her best to show support by being in the room and interacting on local. If she is not, she is getting multiple private messages. As for me, i am just tossing bunnies

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Jessica, and for inviting us to share ours too.

As someone who hosts as room in 3dx from time to time I would like to give an inside of my opinion here.

First of all I would never call myself a DJ and I never did. I stream the music I like in my room and I chose the songs and their orders very thoroughly, I change the playlist based on the mood in my room, on some chat contents or on visitor’s requests, but I do not mix live. Often it is automix, and as I got an appropriate program I edit the automix to make the transitions sound better.

 

I appreciate what DJ’s do, nevertheless my focus is rather on being in communication with the people, and mixing the music live would distract me too much to do so. But this is based on my favors, nothing universal. And the variety of favors is huge in 3dx.

Neverthless I like when the people appreciate my musical selection, or even 'wohoo' me  with 'OMG, that song is awesome, I love you for playing it'. I as well love music, but it is not the main focus for me when I am in 3dx.

 

Regarding my room….. I simply called it Adventureworld, not being able to state what the people find there within the room title. Maybe I could add ‘No colds, no rudeness’, as these are the only rules in my room. I prefer the people to find out what they might find in my room and if they like it, this is part of the ‘adventure’. And even when I organize some event in my room, there is always people just disappearing somewhere in the wilderness of my room, and this is ok for me, as I agree they may not be here based on the Event aspect but just to explore the room. If 2 people are there and enjoy to explore my room, listen to my music, have sex in special places or for whatever reason, this is fine and is worth keeping my room open from time to time. I don’t care if People who  come in listen to my music stream. I offer a room and some music I consider as awesome, but the visitors do not have to take it necessarily as a package.

 

I agree with you that there are some people who try to increase the visitor number by adding some ‘buzzwords’ like ‘orgy, slut, BBC…’. I can’t and I won’t prevent them from doing so, I just learned what I will find in those rooms and I know this is not where I would go…but that is no valuation, it is just not my preferences. As well as it is not my preference to go somewhere only to listen and dance to some music. The communication aspect and the sex of course (Isn’t that a sex game?) will be always my focus here.

 

Nevertheless I can comprehend your point of view as well and I love the variety of 3dx, which makes this place interesting for me, and maybe it is as well the time to exchange thoughts and opinions without trying to fight who is right and trolling each other, but just sharing thoughts.

 

In this spirit I hope you can keep the fun up in the game and have many hours of pleasure

Kisses

Zokora

I didn't read much posts here and not sure if someone already talked about stuff I want to say, or not. But this all what I am going to say is just my own opinion.  :wub:

 

For me, DJ is a person who chooses his music like..making playlist before the party and he makes his playlist depending from party each time something new, each time it is another playlist or the one he played long time before but never on party like that. DJ is a person, who can use his voice to cheer up public, who sings in micro, who just having fun together with people for who he plays that music. I know that someone can say that it is not hard to make playlist and put some songies on automix and here we go. For me it is not like that. I spend my own time by making playlist - I can search for new songs, I also choose my outfit for parties and ask owner of the room what he wants to hear from me, what genre should I choose. I use my voice to talk to people, I play music more people like. Yeah, I don't mix live, because I play kind of..Rock music and it is another genre. I also can mix some songies and not on automix, but EDM is something what I love second. Firstly for me it is Rock\Metal. I love this process - when you plan party during weeks, I love making posters and invite DJs to play and have fun with me - person, who is not being great DJ but where...in 3DXChat - community where people mostly to come to have sex? Not talking about those who come for communicate and for chat mainly.

 

Shortly: For me DJ is a person who make people enjoy music he plays, who is having fun also with people :) I've met here some people who put songs in automix and then they go afk. In that way I even don't consider that people as DJs to be honest. It is something...weird  :huh:

 

In community like that always there will be more people who come in 3DXChat just to play, to fuck around. And depending from this kind of people always will be popular rooms what are about sex. Maybe it depends from time...But sometimes I see rooms with genre are being popular, like on rock events we had pretty much people 40-70 is a lot if you have there not ghosts who usually go afk and being zombies, but those who having fun, talking in local, talking with friends and stuff like that.

 

The only one way as I think, is, not to waste your own nervs for trying fix and change something in mind of people who come in 3dx only for sex and consider it like a place for stroking. We can't force everyone to change  :blink: I like this phrase like - if you want to change the world, start from yourself :)

 

Keep being sweet, keep being cool and for sure people will appreciate the way you are real, not the way you are pretending to be. In the end this everything will show up.  :rolleyes:

 

I love rooms with thematic. Lovers Lounge is being easy room for my PC and I don't have any crashes there. There always is being calming music where you can come to think, to meditate, or just to talk. Lala land is one of my favourite rooms, this unicorn is amazing  :D  I also love rock\metal rooms. It could be easy room but if music is good there and people around those who I know, I will enjoy it any way and stay there for long. No need to have Tiesto there as popular person or someone else.

 

I'm sorry, seems I lost somewhere here. Was trying to make it maximum better, but...Hope you got my point.  :wub:

I agree with most of what you posted but we were discussing the breakdown of event planning. I don't really want this to turn into a talk about what everyone thinks a DJ is. No one brought that up and that's not what we were discussing.  

 

The definition of "DJ" has been argued many times here in other threads and it's always subjective anyhow.

 

We were discussing more things along line of people who support and do not support parties. Like how some DJs don't support the party... and just show up, play set, then leave. We all know people like this, and I find it to be quite annoying and selfish.

Thank you Candi. But one thing I notice is that the local chat in Lovers Lounge is usually not very active. Most people are usually in PM with their significant others.

 

Also, not all DJs can chat much if they are mixing. I try to chat a bit here and there and answer PMs but I have never really been a big "local" chatter. I do sometimes but most the time I am usually only paying attention to PMs. :)

 

But i do agree that an active local chat is a good helper in keeping people in the room.

Same for me, Jess. It's hard to be active on LC when mixing live.. But i try my best to do so.

I wish i could just speak on mic.. It would make it much easier.. Shout out to DJ's who do that! I need to grow some balls.

Bottom line, i know i can speak for Tor when it comes to this cause we're like.. the same person almost, lol.

We will always support other DJ's and stay for as long as we are able to.

Jessica, I meant that even thingy when you join the room like "Hello, (Nickname)" is being very pleasant instead of silence. If there a lot of people who talk in local, sometimes you can feel lost a bit also :x

OK it's been a while since I posted to this and wanted to share something that's been on my mind because it's something that has been popping up even more frequently now than in the past...

 

Fake DJs

 

Now before I share my insight on this, please understand that I am in no way suggesting that in order to be a "real" DJ that one must perform live mixes. That is not what this is about. I also do many streams where I am not mixing, such as Lover's Lounge, or when I do occasional streams of pop, hip hop, etc. None of this is meant to take away from people who stream rock or metal or anything else that is usually not a mixed genre. I have the highest respect for all DJs who are honest and legit.

 

Having said that... 3dx currently has a growing trend of what I call "Fake DJs".  This is where someone will download a full 60 minute mix off YouTube or other sources and then play them at a party while posing and claiming the mix as their own or trying to fake that they are mixing live.

 

This is a major issue because myself and others who do live mix understand the time and effort that goes into a proper mix in the form of:

 

  • Researching music
  • Setting cue points
  • Manually adjusting BPM timings
  • Setting up and gauging transitions
  • Testing and marking areas for effects, samples, etc
  • Getting a set to flow properly
  • Many more things that are hard to explain

 

When a person simply downloads a mix from the internet, they are taking someone else's works and claiming it as their own. It's important for these people to understand a few things:

 

  • You are stealing someone else's hard work
  • You are lying to everyone in the room by claiming this work as your own
  • You are certainly upsetting other people who ARE real Djs that put the proper time and effort
  • You are spitting in the face of the entire industry

 

I know of quite a few people who do this currently and even after talking to them and trying to get them to understand what they are doing, they still decide to keep up with this charade. I know some of these people are reading this and I can let you in on a few things...

 

  • You are not fooling as many people as you think you are.
  • It is very easy for anyone to verify such things. Stream IPs can easily be obtained and checked by people (and people often do this)
  • Even if you think you are smart by changing the file name, anyone can see that the tracks are not changing in your stream
  • Its also very easy to find these mixes on YouTube, even as easy as it was for you to find it. 
  • You are setting yourself up for a big fall because as more people find out, you will likely not be invited to parties

 

 

I always try to to talk to people and get them to realize and understand their mistakes and I even offer up my help if they wish to learn or need tips. There are many people here than can back me up on the fact that I rarely have an issue helping out anyone that truly has passion and wants to learn how to mix. I have to be 100% honest tho... when I see repeated cases of people stealing mixes and claiming them as their own, I lose all respect for these people... especially when they do it time and time again.

Thing is... As long as people go to party's with thoose Fake DJs lined up, and cheering at them. It will never change.

The main problem is, and I said it many times, is the "Ain't care" attitude of people. As long as they can't be bothered where the music is coming from, you will always see the number of fakers growing.

They just need the attention, the listener count and the nice comments how great they are.


Whenever I decline to go to a party, or play at one, I get constantly asked what my problem is and I keep explaining them this... and most people I talk to don't get it...

So I stopped bothering with it. Let them kids play if they need it. Noone can take you serious here anyway, and Noone want.

Keep building that mega-laggy rooms for 1500 people and play your carefully ripped YouTube DJ Mix.

Also don't forget to go to other rooms and advertise yours.

Some of this are coming of you Jessica? :huh:

I'm impressed...

 

I gave up to see potentials in 3DXChat as a kind of entertaining platform for DJ's...

I said in the past "slow but sure is it exactly the same like RLC and SecondLife" this Time is long over^^ :lol:

 

In the other Topic I said "DJ's should be role Models". What did you think will happen when 95% of the role models are Faker?

It's in my opinion the same as fake a female controlled Avi. It's not worth to talk about in a Adult MMO :)

 

The only thing you can do against this is to be a role Model and not be part of the same context...

Real djs have more opportunities to make music than just an MMO game.

 

 

10 Listeners who care real about your djing are more worth as 200 who think you fake. ;)

I wouldn't say 95% but it is a bit larger than many people would like to admit. I have always had issue with people doing this and I know some that have done it in the past and learn from mistakes. We are all human and do make mistakes. I know I certainly do. As long as we learn from them and move forward, I see it as an opportunity to make something positive from something negative. 

 

Also I do not support fakers in any way, shape, or form. The weird thing about this is that I will be looked down upon by many people because of this. There's a large number of people who do not share the passion for the music in ways that others do. It truly is a rare thing.

or 200 that are just there because it seems like the cool thing to do in that moment.

That's true and I agree but you have to give everyone the chance to make his own mistakes and learn about :)

Are you sure? :lol:

If you use the stream source of an Faker or be a part of the same team you will always support them and at least you comes in the same pot whether you like it or not :)

I should also mention that what the fakers have trouble understanding is that most of these mixes from YouTube have post production effects on them that you can clearly hear and pick up if you have a decent sound system and know what you are listening for. Anyone that knows anything about mixing can hear these things and also recognize when extra equipment such as controllers, DAC, EQ, etc are needed to make certain transitions work properly. Unless you somehow know someone than can do a loop in 2 decks, a very slow fade, with high pass filter, and other effects at the same time such as flanger/echo, while also changing EQ settings, etc.   Well...I'd really love to see someone try to do a transition like this on only their PC  :)

I totally support you on this Jess and I will also now stay away from partys which have known fake DJs in their line up. Also all verified fakes will find a nice spot on my iggy list. I have to add just one thing about meta data. Some, like me, uses Serato DJ and so you will never see meta data in the stream since it does not support direct streaming. But there are other ways to find out if the mix is not theirs... also a little talk about the used equipment may show you if the DJ is real or fake.

What he means, if you play alongside with them even tho you are independent you might be associated with them.

Yes you always tell me it's about the music and to entertain people. But you know how I see it. Hence why you won't see my name pop up on some Events here. No matter how good and popular they are, cuz ppl clearly don't get what it is all about.

And seriously I can't listen to the fairytales of some "real" DJs here anymore.

As I said they can do whatever they like. I won't be part of it.

Because I have something called pride. 😊

No I get it 100% but.. Achilles also did a large event in the past which turned out to be littered with fakes. Tho i'm quite sure at the time he did not know this at the time because I know how his stance on this.

 

I do not knowingly play alongside these Djs. I have in the past when I didn't realize but many DJ and organizers have been more active in verifying honesty ie: there are a lot more people know that seem to care about this. Even in the past, I did not play along side fakes. I have played along side people who have made mistakes and learned from them and changed their ways. I do not and will never condemn someone for making a mistake. Like I stated above, we ALL make mistakes and it we can learn from them and turn them into something positive, then that is a good life lesson.

Nope and I didn't care but finally I have regretted it :)

Firstly I thought to watch just about me and do the things correct as role model but then later I got the opinion of now because it's true that everyone who is honestly supports the drive of the fakes when he close his eyes and they do it together.

 

For example the first do it as fake, the second honestly and the third again as fake so is this person in the middle automatic in the same pot.

 

 

I've still the opinion ppl can do what they want in her rooms at least they have to agree with themselves to lie their friends.

As long I've the middles and the choices I'm not again a part of!

 

Everyone who knows me knows I will help everyone not matter is it a newbie or advanced member. I will help with partys, questions around of djing, music, servers etc but there is also for me a point where I don't understand fun...

 

No one needs to be perfect, I'm the last one who complains about music tastes, mixed or unmixed music, mistakes etc as long it is honest with legit content as a kind of own art :)

 

Behind a virtual border is there never the perfect method to prove it but we can try :D

I agree with all of this 100%

 

Lots of people know I am more than happy to help in any way I can and I have spent much time and many long nights helping people. I do get much enjoyment from it. I have tried to warn certain people about what they do and they ignore my words and simply think myself and many others are just stupid and don't know what is really going on. Even tho i'm usually happy to assist people who want to learn... if they continue the charade, it reaches a point to where I lose all respect for them and just give up on the idea of anything positive to happen from it all.
