Exclusive interview to Alberto!

We realized last week that you really liked our interview to Max, so we will continue doing interviews to people of other teams. This week it´s time to interview Alberto, one of our oldest admins, that has been helping us with the Spanish domain for more than 3 years. Do you want to know about more about the Smeet Team? Continue reading this interesting interview!

What are the main tasks of a member of the Smeet Team?

Our job is quite dynamic because we have a lot of things to do:

  • Translations from German to all the other languages that we have in the community
  • Take care of Facebook, blog, Newsletters and coordinating all the others images that you see about Smeet
  • Doing our Support
  • Being inside the game to answer any question and listening to their suggestions
  • Thinking about new content, events, contests…

What do you need to become an admin in Smeet?

Well, first of all you have to live in Berlin, because our offices are here.

Then it´s very important that you have some studies related with the job: Business management, linguistics… or something similar

And of course you should speak ideally 3 languages, your native one, English and German

Then being a friendly person, able to solve issues to the Smeeters and creative to think about new ideas to improve the community. At the end it´s a cocktail of all of these topics

Do you have many funny anecdotes in Smeet? Can you tell us one?

Yes, Smeet is a very funny place to work because we see many curious situations. I remember one day that I was on a bar with a couple of colleagues and we were talking about the game: “I love the moon, I´d like to have it for my house but it´s for level 200. I prefer the aeroplane, it will fit perfectly for me”. And then we turned our faces and we saw everyone on the table next to us couldn´t understand what we were talking about, thinking that we were crazy.

Tell us the truth. Can you find real love in Smeet?

Smeet is a magical place for love, and not only behind the screen. I found my actual girlfriend here in the office a couple of years ago. But of course it´s possible to find love inside Smeet. In these years I know at least 10 couples that have married or had a kid in real life. And much more that are having a relationship or have met outside the game. We have to put dozens of rings every week, so we can tell the Smeeters 100% sure that love is in the air in Smeet.

What can you tell us about the future of Smeet? Any important news?

I feel very excited about the new features and the new content that we are planning to have for the game in the next months. (There are some things that we are sure that Smeeters will love). We try, as always, to improve the community every day and keep people engaged with new contests and events. We have solved some technical issues lately, so in this moment I can only see the future of Smeet with a smile in the face that we hope to trespass to the Smeeters

Anything else that you would like to tell the Smeeters?

Well, I just would like to say thank you to all of them, because they are the main characters of our community and without them and their feedback Smeet wouldn´t exist. We are trying to make the best game as possible with the resources that we have, and our main goal is to keep people happy. You wouldn´t believe how proud we feel when a user comes to us and tell that Smeet has changed their life in a very positive way. Being part of this great team that tries to satisfy Smeeter´s dreams is a great experience that I´ll never forget.

It's US Open Tennis, Baby!

Hi, WillKane here again. Once named “the least wussy of the wussy sports” by MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch (a guilty pleasure back in my college days), some may wonder what’s so special about tennis, much less US Open tennis, because after all, it’s just two rackets and a ball getting whacked over and over and over a net again, right? Yeah, that’s true, but with any sport, it’s all about the competitors and camaraderie, and even a “wussy” sport like tennis has all of that and a little more. My wife and I got to see a few matches recently at Cincinnati’s Western & Southern Open, and for me I got to see firsthand a real competitor in Taylor Townsend, a young upstart who Serena Williams has dubbed “the future of American tennis.” She doesn’t have that much of a shot against Serena in the first round this year, but no doubt that match will be entertaining.

SerenaSerena 

So we have a wide-open men’s and women’s singles US Open draw this year (sorry, but I don’t watch doubles very often), and this whole year has been more wide open than normally what we’ve seen in past years, with a different winner for each Slam so far. Although Serena is the two-time defending champion and clearly favored, even with her win at Western & Southern, she just hasn’t looked good this year in Grand Slams. But she is still the best in the women’s game when fit and committed, for now. Maria Sharapova, even though she won the French Open earlier this year, has never won more than one major in a year, despite her being an obvious contender this time. Some possibly great matches include a solid fourth round match between Sharapova and a reemerging Wozniacki and quarterfinals of Kvitova vs. Bouchard and either Sharapova/Wozniacki vs. World number two Simona Halep. But you can expect Serena Williams vs. a first-time US Open finalist in the championship match, in my opinion. Expect Serena to win her 18th Grand Slam title.

 

For the men’s draw, Rafa is out with an injury, again, so even with the Joker as the top seed, I think this is Roger Federer’s tournament to lose (what can I say, he is my favorite tennis player) because he has looked the best of the top seeds by far since Wimbledon and has a very favorable draw, especially with Nadal out. Federer’s biggest scare before the Final would be Grigor Dimitrov with this year’s Wimbledon semifinal breakthrough, but I still like Federer’s experience in that one, with a possibility of Tomas Berdych lingering in the semis should he go through and beat Ferrer, who is arguably the bulldog of men’s tennis. Don’t get me wrong, Djokovic is crazy good at his finest and is ranked 1a to Nadal’s 1b (when Nadal of course is healthy), but that possible quarterfinal match with Murray should be brutal. I’m not sure I like his chances, given his recent wedding and that he’s going to be a dad, against a healthy Murray, much less the possibility of facing in the semis either a dangerous Miles Raonic or Stan Wawrinka, the Australian Open winner who has a great chance of reaching the final here in the prime of his career.

 RogerRoger

I personally look forward to watching some of these matches online at http://www.usopen.org, and of course it’ll be on ESPN and CBS for everyone to watch from Monday August 25 until Monday September 8. I’m sure all of you tennis fans on Smeet out there already know it, but for any other Smeeter curious about the game, the US Open may not have the same prestige or mystique as Wimbledon or the French Open, but still is exciting nonetheless, so feel free to check it out.

In the meantime, have fun and happy Smeeting!

Exclusive Interview to one of the Smeet members!

Smeeter, if have ever wanted to know more about some of our employees at Smeet we are going to make your day!

Today, we will introduce to you Max, who is in charge of the creation of the Booster rooms, those challenging rooms where we can win thousands of Fame Points!

Booster rooms have being going through a long process of evolution and improvement thanks to Max. He has been on board with us since one year and a half, helping to create some of the coolest rooms and other interesting features! But let's ask him some questions!

 

How do you arrive to the idea for a new room?

We have weekly Content Meetings where we decide the content of each week, as well as the room that best suits each topic. We come up with our own ideas, of course, but also, and this is very important, we check the Facebook comments left by the Smeeters and we listen to the admins of the different domains who have been collecting all the suggestions received in our Support Center and in the game. So, in the end, topics in general and rooms in particular are a combination of ideas coming from the Smeeters and ourselves.

How do you choose the approach for the new room?

We try to satisfy the needs of all Smeeters, but of course, it is impossible to do so in every room. We believe we have rooms for everyone: some parts of them, are just meant for the people who want to win thousands of Fame Points… but the main goal is to always have something in the room that could be achieved by almost everyone. Then, we try to mix the content of these rooms with various contests, like the recent airport contest, or other sorts of competitions such as “Angels against Demons” and so on.

Would you be able to finish all rooms if you were a user?

Definitely not. I admit it. It would take a great deal of time and effort, but in the end, as I said, this is not our main goal. We strongly suggest Smeeters to try everything that Smeet has to offer and just pick those options, tasks or topics that they enjoy the most or that are best for their particular needs. For instance, easy rooms like “Smileys against Smeanies” if they just want to have some fun or, for example, limited-time rooms like the Clockwork one in case they really want to increase their level as fast as possible with thousands of Fame Points.

What Booster rooms are the most special for you?

One of them, of course, is the Beauty Salon, because it was the first room that I created when I arrived to Smeet. Also, the Tuning Workshop is very special for me, because it has become the most popular room in the history of the game, and I will always remember it. But aside from those ones, the Medieval one was very nice too, especially because I am a big fan of dragons, and the ones in this room were pretty cool.

On the other hand, I feel like we didn’t manage to explain to the Smeeters the concept of random rewards, so some rooms, especially the Survival Island, didn’t work as well as expected. We will try in the future to use this tool again, but this time we’ll try to make it clearer for all of the Smeeters.

What do you like most about working at Smeet?

It´s a daily challenge to find new ways to make the game more attractive to the Smeeters, and we have a very direct feedback from them which allows us to immediately see what they like and what they don´t.

Also, the feeling of being part of this community and watching it grow with my help gives me a great personal satisfaction. Apart from these Booster rooms, I am helping in other interesting projects, and I can say that we have a new feature that will come in the next months and that will make Smeet much more challenging for all Smeeters!

 

So thanks to Max for dedicating us part of his time, helping the community to get to know him a little better!
