Below are links and headings to the different sections to this page.
At 98.6TheMix, we feel that DJ and listener interaction is an important part of our station for everyone. Sure, anyone can push buttons, play music and talk, but who are the people behind that? How do you know when they're going to be on the air or what there show is about?
Below you will find the ways we have for you to interact with us. We must caution you that not all DJs may utilize all services with the exception of the listeners list.
The listeners list is where you will get notified via email by upcoming shows and happenings on 98.6TheMix! Listeners List (Opens a new browser window) You can also respond to any posts, however they will only go to the poster.
Our TeamTalk server is the number one hangout spot for djs and listeners on 98.6TheMix! We have a few rules you need to be aware of before joining us.
- There will be no sexual talk of any type. This includes conversations/jokes about sex, making direct or indirect advances towards anyone online, or anything of that nature!
- Your display name must reflect either your real name or how you want to be known. You may not use the name of another person or represent yourself as someone else.
For example, you could have the name Rachel or Mad Dog. However, something like, ďIím in love with Mad DogĒ is not acceptable. We also ask that you do not change your display name while on the server.
- Do not repeatedly come on and off the TeamTalk server. Itís fine if you come on and off once to see who is online, but donít do it again five minutes later. If you are experiencing technical difficulties, please either text or send a private message to one of the admins or anyone on the server who you know can help.
- Do not do anything intentional to disrupt a dj or show that is currently in progress. This means, do not try to distract a DJ when he/she is talking on air by verbal or text means. We also encourage DJs to mute TeamTalk when doing Voice Breaks. Also, if a show is streaming on TeamTalk, do not use your media stream to override the show.
- Only channels that are designated as on air may be transmitted on a show or recording for later use. Anyone who does not want to be heard on a live show should remain silent during talk breaks and inform the Dj that they intend to remain silent. Private show channels are to be considered on air channels. Channels such as the main 986themix channel or ones that do not have the on-air designation may not be transmitted under any circumstances regardless of peopleís consent.
- Please use headphones when coming on the server. This is important whether you are on the computer or phone. If you are unable to use headphones, please switch to push to Talk mode so that others on the server do not hear loud background noise or echoes. Also, when not using headphones and push to talk is enabled, please keep your volume at an extremely low level for the same reasons.
If you break the rules, then the following will occur:
- First, you will be given an official warning by a present admin. A warning is not official until given verbally and written in a private TT message. It will be clearly stated that this is an official warning and not a mere request.
- Second violation will be removing you from the channel. Do not come back in until you have corrected the problem.
- Third violation will you will be kicked from the server.
- Fourth violation will result in a ban. We will allow a one-time appeal after 15 days. Violation of the first rule may result in getting banned sooner if we feel peopleís comfort and safety are at risk. Banns resulting from the first rule cannot be appealed.
