monochrome-heaven @ plug.dj Official Rules:

  • Remove yourself from the DJ wait list if AFK.
  • Do not play songs over 7 minutes without asking for permission first.
  • No repeating the same tracks in one plug session.
  • The DJ cycle will be disabled once it reaches 10 users.
  • No meh-ing at all. In fact, try to woot if possible. It's more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Don't be an asshat. Discussing the music being played is perfectly fine, but needlessly bashing the plays of others is a quick way to get banned.
  • Preferably play songs in Japanese - we're a J-rock forum after all. 
  • Have fun! Plug is about sharing the music you enjoy while openly embracing the tastes of others. No one cares how 'superior' your taste is, so tuck your e-peen away and don't be a down! :P
Sundays is a themed plug (or if no theme is officially announced, it's a free-for-all)

 

 

I'm surprised that there isn't a thread for this already since plug has become an integral part of our community.

 

For those that don't know, plug.dj is basically a site where you can play music and videos with friends, and chat as well. It can be pretty fun when you're online with the right crowd. We don't have a set schedule for plug sessions, but we get together every now and then. You can keep an eye on the user status updates to see when people are "plugging" but since I've finally made a thread, we might be able to better organize/plan sessions now!

 

 

At any rate, plug is undergoing a massive update today. Here's a video detaling a few of the new updates:

It'll be nice to be able to use the site without lag and crashing every 10 minutes. :P

 

True. I suspect things will be buggy/glitchy for a little while after the update is finally complete. Ofc, let's hope that actually isn't the case

plug.dj said that they were going to be in maintenance all last night and this morning, but would give us an ETA (estimated time of arrival) for the new site. But that got delayed as well.

Here is our current status with Maintenance:

Thanks to your awesome passion for music, we are currently migrating all 65,000,000 of the songs and videos you've been listening to on plug.dj over the past 2 years.

 

Migration of your username, points (which will be converted on the new site), communities, staff, and any bans that have occurred in communities are completely migrated onto the new site.

 

During our Maintenance time there have been a few unforeseen circumstances that have delayed migration. We have been working through this to ensure all of your information is carried over to our completely new site.

 

Our ten person staff has been working two days straight with only about five to six hours breaks to get this new site working. We are getting closer and we want to get this site up as much as you want to see it and use it.

 

We want to give you a site that is completed and one in which we did not cut any corners to get the site up sooner than it is ready. This has taken longer than expected and we will not stop until it is complete.

 

Due to this, we will not be posting an ETA until we are 100% sure when we can have the site up and running for you to enjoy.

Anyway, I guess I'm not surprised it's being delayed again. Stuff happens. However I also feel that it's good they aren't rushing to get the site online because that would probably create more issues. Just thought I would post this for people who aren't following them on Facebook or Twitter.

The site is back up... kinda. No new update. Basically, they restored the site but any points you earn or songs you add to your playlist won't save. They're still backing things up.

 

To our community members,
 
Thanks for holding out while we continued to work on migration through yesterday. We wanted to update you on our current status.
 
The 65,000,000 pieces of data migration are taking longer than any one of us anticipated, and much longer than our initial migration tests took. Currently, they are running an average that will take 8 days total to completely transfer your playlists to the new site.
 
We know many of you want to hangout with your community and share your awesome taste in music. In light of that, we will temporarily be bringing the old site back up while we continue the data migration. 
 
Because we are in the process of migrating your data from the moment we initially went into Maintenance, WE WILL NOT BE MIGRATING ANY UPDATED OR NEW PLAYLISTS, POINTS, OR NEW USER DATA EARNED WHILE THIS TEMPORARY OLD SITE IS UP. Any data prior to our initial Maintenance – on August 6th – will remain intact and is in the process of being transferred.
 
Once data migration is complete we will have to bring the site into Maintenance one more time to get the new site up.
 
This was not an easy decision on our part, but it is the best option to make sure you can enjoy a version of our site while we continue to work on migration.
 
Thanks,
plug.dj Staff

Ah, well it's unfortunate that things didn't go as planned, but it's understandable. Having to wait a few more days is no big deal.

Thanks for keeping us posted, chewi.

They posted another announcement about an announcement.

 

Hi All,

 

We know many of you have been asking and we want you to know we will have an announcement for you about the update early next week.
There are quite a few communities hosting events over the course of this weekend that have had their events scheduled for quite some time, and we want to avoid interrupting them with a site update as much as possible.

To our wonderfully patient community members,
We want to express our sincerest apologies for the delay with the update. We are continually working on this update and we will notify you when we have a specific date for launch.From here on out, we will be working to make launches run more smoothly in the future. For now, we will be adding support immediately after launch to help you on the new site and ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible. You can read more about our added support on our blog here:  http://blog.plug.dj/2014/08/a-message-about-our-launch/ Thank you for your continued patience.
 
Site is down right now.

 

The update is NOT happening now. This is an instability issue with the old site and developers are looking into it. We will, as always, give advance warning for any site update Maintenance.

 

TL;DR

aka "we're updating our website without knowing if it can even handle the updates we've planned and now we're stuck in this fucking mess". A+ professionalism there.
