Dear Smeeters, we've decided to record our first podcast episode! Admin Alissa interviewed Donka, the admin of the Polish domain who is leaving Smeet at the end of the month :(
Here you can read the interview too!:
Alissa. How are you Donka?
Donka: i´m very good thank you!
Alissa. How long have you been working for Smeet?
Donka: I’ve been working for Smeet for over 5 years. It has been a great time and I’m really sad to leave you but also excited for the future.
Alissa: Would you mind telling our users why you are leaving Smeet?
Donka: I love Smeet and I really liked working here as an admin but I’ve found a full time job in the town where I live now. I moved away from Berlin some time ago. I m going to work in QA and i'm going to do translations.
Alissa: Why did you choose “Donka” as a nickname and did you ever change it?
Donka: In 2012 I had the nickname Donkiszoteria, what means errantry and comes from the name of Don Quixote (Polish Don Kichot). In 2014 I decided to cut it down to Donka, because it was easier to pronounce for everyone.
Alissa: What was your favorite Smeet task?
Donka: My task as an admin? I loved planning the Avatar Contest. It was great fun to choose the subjects and pictures for it, to use old themes or create new ones - I like fashion!
Alissa: Now they know that you have been responsible for all the Avatar Contests over the past few years :) So, can you name one thing you´ve learned while you were working for Smeet?
Donka: I’ve learned a lot of things here but one of the most important is customer support and how it works in an IT company.
Alissa: If you would have been a normal user in Smeet, what role would you have chosen and why?
Donka: It is very difficult to pick only one role, because all of them are great. However, I think I would have chosen to be a Gossip Queen, because I like fashion and find Smeet clothes really interesting. But I like making music events too, so maybe also an Entertainer or DJ. In Poland we use the Chef Badge for Taste Creators and I like cooking as well.
There is going to a party with Donka on the 28th of August at 9pm, if you want to have one last party with Donka!

A big and special thank you goes to DJ.Kevin from the French domain (and DJ on the German domain) for the jingle we used in our first episode!
