As DJResource is a self-developed platform all the sections you can visit are custom build and designed for the needs we've had at the time. As time passes features and functionality is constantly adjusted, so it can be usefull to know what we've done and why.
This article will give background information about all of the modules, aswell as covering a lot of the Frequencty Asked Questions we've got over time.
DJResource aims to offer a helpfull community for people at all stages of their DJ career or hobby, backed by quality content. Each piece of content has the possibility for our members to write a comment, reaction or add information to the topics. We expect from our members posting allong these lines that contribute to the subject stated in the starting post. When posting keep this in mind :
Although DJResource is a Dutch website, most content is in English because we have an international group of members and an even bigger group of visitors. All Admins and Moderators can write in both languages so if you need a translation from dutch to english, just ask.
If you topic/post is specific for the dutch region you can make your statement in Dutch. If it's a more general topic it might be a good idea to try to post it in english (or ask a moderator to help you translate) in order to get the most feedback.
Other than fun and the community feeling there is no real need for you to register. Although registering yourself does have certain advantages. Some parts of this website might give you a warning that you don't have the right member level for a certain page. Other parts you don't show up at all untill your logged in.
Registration on DJResource is a 3-step procedure and can be done in a few minutes. Registration is free.

You're activity on DJResource is measured and is reflected by a Member Level. You're level will rise when you get more active and helpfull on all of the interactive parts of DJResource.

DJResource has always been a privately funded website by W.i.M and Lead and is developed from scratch by them. We've always had very helpful comments on the forums that helped is to improve the website.

The most informative sections of DJResource is our Topics Section, here you will find lots of information that goes deeper into a product or issue than the regular information you will find on the internet.
Product Information is neutrally written and does not give a final verdict about a product. It is more a description of all function and tricks that can be performed with this product. The topics are certainly NOT just a simple review but purely based on FACTS!
Our Gallery is one of the oldest sections on DJResource and was created as a possibility for our members to share images with others.
When an image is uploaded to the Gallery it will be added to your personal Album, if that album does not exist it will be created during the upload.
No you cannot, but you can ask one of the admins to move a picture if you think it better fits another album. Images will not be moved to other member's album.
The forums is the best way for our members to interact with eachother and to share knowledge, everybody can read the forums but you have to be logged in to post a reaction.
Our forums is the oldest section on DJResource and is the core around we've build up the platform.
Always use the Search first, a lot of questions are allready asked in the past so the answer your looking for might be on the forums allready.
If you open a new topic you have to go to the proper forum section first and start the new thread there. It will be placed in that forum automatically after you submit it.
Write clear titles, do NOT use 'I have a problem', rather write a descriptive one like 'Formatting SD card gives XXX error'. This makes it more attractive for others to read it and to give you an answer.
If your topic is being closed and you don't agree with the moderator who closed it then Contact the Admins with your complaint. If you can convince them, the topic might be re-opened.
DO NOT open a new topic about the same subject without good argumentation or flaming about the reason your previous one was closed.
The polls are made to get the opinion of the people that visit this website. Only registered members can start a poll by posting this in any of the forums. Each computer can only vote once, after you've voted you will see the results of the poll instead of Vote Buttons.
You can ask any type of question or statement in a poll as long as it's in line with the general content of the DJResource (So DON'T start a poll that's about : xxx-rated stuff, racism, political statements, hate, cursing etc.). Let's just keep it normal, administrators have a final verdict to delete the poll from the frontpage, or entirely when they think it's in to far off the main interest of the general visitors of this website.
You could see a marked topic as a bookmarked topic, the icon resembles a magnet. Once marked a topic will have a different color on the frontpage and it will always stick to the top of the topics list in the forums. Also you can get an e-mail if somebody replies on that topic.
You can mark or unmark a topic by opening it and look for the button at the top right of the screen. You can mark all topics, started by yourself or somebody else.
In the Downloads you can find mostly supporting files for the Articles (Pioneer DJ Manuals and Product Images) and DJResource related downloads like Wallpaper, video's and such.
It is not possible for our members to add files to the Downloads, contact the Admins if you have something we should be having there.
The DJ Booth section of DJResource is a bit of our Pride and Glory, it was designed and developed by ourself. It shows our members DJ Booth at home with a listing of gear used (that would later be linked to the Gearbase)
It al started with a thread in our forum: [Pics] Your DJ Booth. It was the biggest growing thread at that time (februari 2002) and as coders/designers we thought we should do something with this. Early 2005 we started making the module and by may 2005 we finished it and the first DJBooth was added.
Behind the scenes the DJ Booths are linked to images in the Gallery. If you add an image to your album in the Gallery, you will see the option to also add the image to the DJ Booth section. If you select that option, after upload of your image you will be forwarded to the DJ Booths. Here you can add gear items, descriptions and such.
If the image is allready in your album, go to the page showing the image and press the button to add that image to the DJ Booths.
When submitting your booth fill out a proper name, preferably with year/month so you can easily find it back.
The Productions section on DJResource is meant to offer our members the ability to spread their OWN CREATIONS. It is not allowed to upload files you did not create yourself.
All used gear in our DJ Booth section, added with lots of old nostalgic items. Just browse around on a path through the history of DJ Gear
The Imagedump was created to offer our members the possibility to upload and use images on DJResource without the risk of these images being tasken offline over time. Members can upload any size image (some file size restrictions may apply) and get a link to embed that image on ie. the Forums. But these images can also be used on other platforms as the Imagedumps gives you the hotlinks for these images.
On some places you can add multiple images to certain pieces of content, all these additional images are also added to the Imagedump. Examples of these images are: extra Gearbase Images and additional DJ Booth images. Once added to these items, the images show next to these items but can also be found in dedicated sections in the Imagedump.
Some parts of this website require you to login. Using an account on DJResource has a lot of advantages such as:
Adding Content, getting Notifications, Like content, Downloading and Uploading Images and much more.
