Questions and Answers
Here are some frequently-asked questions..
and ANSWERS ! :)
Q: What happens on this stream?
A: This is the "Master Control Studio" for WARP Radio and you can see me as I do my duties such as DJ'ing, hosting other DJ's from all over the world, working on various equipment and/or just screwing around!
I play music (including the keyboard) and sometimes, I play video games and other times, I build stuff or take stuff apart, etc.
I try my best to interact with you, the viewers, whenever I can.
Q: Why are you so close to the screen?
A: I suffer eye conditions known as Nystagmus and Plasticia (Hypoplastic) of the Retina; These conditions cause a severe focus disorder and has left scar tissue on my retinas. The left eye is dead and the right eye has a visual acuity of 20/500+, from center to right (about 20 degrees), therefore, I'm technically BLIND (my vision is similar to looking through a piece of thin wax paper) and glasses/contacts can NOT correct this condition.
Q: I see multiple names and responses from
a single account name, why is that and what does it mean?
A: You are actually looking at a "relay bot" which forwards the chat from our website chat portal (
). The format is: "account name net name chat text".
Example: warp_hd WR hi and welcome!
Sometimes there can be a rather-long delay between the relay and the Twitch Chat and for this reason there can be up to a 3 MINUTE (or more) DELAY (lag) and therefore, your comments may not reach me right away or my replies to you.. n that case,
Please be PATIENT!
you are NOT being ignored- its just taking some time for the round-trip interaction.
Q: I hear a great song on, but I missed the name.. can I ask for the title?
A: Actually, there are a few things you can do; you can use the commands: !dj !show and !song at most anytime to get quick stats on whats on and who's playing it.. or, if meta isn't available, you can simply ask the current on-air DJ.
Q: Can I make requests?
A: Absolutely! Most DJs accept song requests and the BOT can also accept requests at certain times when a DJ isn't on-air.
To use this feature, simply type !search (or !sch) followed with a query of artist OR song name. You will receive a WHISPER MESSAGE from the Bot with instructions and/or results to your query. (typing !sch without a query will get additional help).
Then, type !request (or !req) followed with an item's index number of the selection that you want to hear.. and the bot will cue it up for you! (typing !req without a query will get you additional help.)
you can also simply ask the current on-air DJ for your request.
All requests are at the DJs discretion and they reserve the right to not honor or play them. also, we do NOT play links here. Weblinks (like those from YouTube and Spotify, Pandora , etc ) cannot legally be played on WARP Radio or Twitch and are not allowed; DJs are instructed to not accept links to play.
1.. Be polite, courteous and friendly towards your fellow chatters and the DJs!
This one's simple to understand- treat others as you would like them to treat you! if you are rude to a DJ, how can you expect them to play your requests? no-one likes a rude participant!
2.. Please, NO TROLLING!!
Trolls just aggravate chatters and drive visitors away.
3.. Please do not post weblinks in Chat.
Poaching and/or posting weblinks (including YouTube links) in the Chat is NOT allowed. Links are blocked from view (WRN staff and channel operators are exempt).
4.. Please refrain from excessive explicit language.
Explicit language and/or "role-playing" in the Chat has a negative effect, overall, and reflects poorly on the channel (and Twitch's) character and image; This includes using nicks that are deemed offensive and/or distasteful.
