To stay logged in, you can check the "Remember Me" box in the log in page. Then, as long as your browser settings aren't too strict, you'll stay logged in if you ever turn off your computer and come back. If your browser settings are strict, then we'll make some tutorials on how to make them less strict in the tutorial videos section.
While we do try our best to make our website as compatible as possible to any web browser, Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox or Microsoft Edge seem to work best for browsing TheDojo. So if you do have issues using TheDojo please try one of those three browsers.
Try to turn off other applications on your phone or your laptop. If you're on wifi, try to plug in your internet. Ethernet is almost always faster. Also, for live streams, the live stream platform that we use (Big Blue Button) recommends Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox or Microsoft Edge.
Currently, we use Big Blue Button as the live stream platform. They officially recommend at least 1.0 Mbits/second upstream and 2 Mbits/second downstream speeds, but from our experience, you should have at least 5 Mbs upstream and 10 Mbs downstream. You can always go here to test your livestream connection before you do a class: https://test.bigbluebutton.org/ Also, to do a speed test, here's a site to use: https://speedtest.net/
Yes, go to Manage Channel-->Edit Channel and then the "Edit Stripe Account" will be in the top right.
Even when you don't want to speak in a live stream, still select the mic option when you initially join. You're automatically muted when you join, so don't worry about accidentally speaking of making disruptive sounds when you join. When you join the live stream initially, a popup immediately appears that shows a headphone icon and a mic icon. You must indicate that you want to use a mic by selecting the mic icon. If you don't check that option, then you cannot immediately enable your mic later in the stream. If you accidentally selected the headphones icon, then you have to leave the stream and come back to check the right option when you re-enter the stream. Or if you don't want to leave the stream, you can click on the headphone icon in the stream, click "Leave Audio," then you can click on the audio again, and the original popup will appear again. Please check out the video tutorial in the teach section. Sorry that it's confusing, but this is outside our control right now, but we're working on bringing you an even better live stream function ASAP.
