Congratulations to Betatester for earning the BA Spotlight. He is always willing to help out in plug.dj/support and loves to make sure all questions are answered. You’ll see him in a variety of places helping out however he can. If you see him on site be sure to congratulate him!
1. What is your username on plug.dj and where do you like to hang out?
Hey! My username on plug is Beta Tester (although you might’ve known me as T98, which was my previous username). This name came from the badge I got when I transferred my account, because the “Beta Tester” account was named “PotatoFarmer” beforehand. Hehe.
I’m usually at the Dubstep, Techno, and Electro! room, though you may find me on nightcore-playing rooms, or just hopping around. I personally like to avoid overcrowded communities, so you’ll rarely see me in a room with more than 100 people.
2. What music and artists are you excited about right now?
My taste has changed quite a bit since I found out about plug.dj! In the beginning I was very into the Electro and House genres, whereas now I appreciate some Chill Trap, Drum and Bass, and Melodic or Orchestral EDM (I really like songs for their melodies!). As for artists, I adore Fox Stevenson and TheFatRat. Can’t forget to mention the Cash Cash group, because they’re the ones who introduced me to EDM, with Overtime (awesome song, if you haven’t listened to it yet, I very much recommend it!).
3. Where are you from? What do you do for fun when you’re not on plug.dj?
I’m a bored teenager from Brazil, but unlike stereotypes might suggest, I hate watching football games or going to the beach. I’m more of the nerd type of guy, so I like to watch animes, code something, go out with friends, or just eat something delicious!
4. Are you in school, or do you have a job?
I’m still in High School, and it takes up 10 hours of every single one of my week days. But in spite of having to sacrifice my non existent social life during the week because of them, I really like attending to my classes! I study at a school that’s all about computers, so most of my homeworks involve programming. Can it get better than that?!
5. What are some things you hope to accomplish personally next year?
I’m not really a person to plan out as far as a year ahead, even because I’m very happy about my life right now. But I think that it’d be good if I could get some small games made, possibly learn some other programming languages. Mostly though, I think 2016 will be to me a ‘study hard year, considering it’ll be my last at school.
6. What inspires you to be a Brand Ambassador?
To me, the joy of getting to help people and make their day better is immeasurable. It might sound cheesy, but I just love helping people out, be it with an actual issue, or just by cheering them up. Also, being well-received and spammed with questions in multiple communities that don’t usually have BAs around just makes my day!
7. How do you contribute to the plug.dj community as a BA?
I’m on the support side of things. So some emails sent to email@example.com, or Feature Request tickets at support.plug.dj, I’m the one responsible for answering. I love helping out just above anything else, and there’s nothing better than the feel of someone thanking you for making their day happier. I also like to moderate staffless rooms, which are usually YouTuber/streamer rooms that end up having no one to look after, during or after an event happens, especially Brazilian rooms (there’s a lot of fun spam to contain!).
Just like I mentioned on the previous question, I LOVE the community. I love helping people I don’t know, participating in events with people I don’t know, meeting people I don’t know and befriending them (all on plug, of course, I’m a big antissocial irl). I simply adore the huge amount of different people you get to meet on plug, everyone with a different taste in music, in conversation subject, well, in everything!
9. What’s the most common question you get about plug.dj, and how do you answer it?
Even though there are many repeated questions throughout communities, I think the #1 big winner would be “What are you?”. I usually either answer explaining what do BAs do, how anyone can apply, and link the BA page, or I say I’m some random staff member’s mom.
Funny enough, people usually like me better when I say I’m someone’s mom.
10. Any final thoughts, advice or shoutouts you’d like to share?
I’d just like to send a huge thanks to the entire community, for being so awesome and friendly! Times when I’m tired, bored, or even sad, it’s plug that cheers me up, and all because of the users! Of course, none of this would be possibly without the All Mighty Admins, so this thanks extends to them as well! I’m really glad I found out about this website relatively soon after it was made, and I’m really grateful for everything people do at the website and for the website! Love you all!
P.S. If you ever need help with anything, don’t hesitate to stalk me and ask for help! As I think I might’ve mentioned dozens of times here, I really like helping people!
