Not sure what private trackers are all about?
The mission of /ptg/ is to promote the highest possible standards of tracker service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.
Check out the wiki and update it yourself if you want more instead of complaining like a fucking faggot. https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/Private_trackers

Remember the following:
>staff occasionally read these generals and have posted here before.
>staff may pretend to be normal users asking for invites and when you invite them, they ban you for inviting strangers
>people may report emails and other personal info posted here to staff to get you banned.
>most of the invite offers here are people trolling you with false hope - begging for invites is a waste of time and you should just interview
First for best encode script
>don't get your required ratio (and if he was on ratio watch already it was probably 0.10 - 0.20)
>get in ratio watch and not fix ratio in 2 weeks
>download more than 10 GB while on ratio watch
Wait you're joking right? Holy shit? Sauce!?! Which label? Is he working on something new yet?!?!?
Is this Drizzy!?!?! Or Cara or someone he knows? What's the name of it family?
WTF!? I didn't even know he dropped anything on Christmas Eve. Usually when he drops something /ptg/ talks about it for days and weeks. Gonna give it a listen right now.
Looking specifically for Camille Saint-Saëns introduction et rondo capriccioso op. 28 for Violin and Piano in FLAC. and preferably a selection of recordings from different musicians.
They don't really compare. AHD is perfect if you just want the latest movies on bluray with a great encode. It's focus is much more on release quality than the film itself.
Really TehC would be a better alternative for movies.
This might not be entirely /ptg/ related but what do you guys think about protonmail for tracker related stuff? I don't want to use an email that's going to go down like lavabit did. I lost a few private tracker accounts that way.
the other anons have answered your question as I would have.
ptp staff do have plans to raise the user limit at some point as they want help in seeding the archive but when exactly? who knows?
other than that, if you're on the what.cd route, pass the interview, make elite, be a good seeder and hang around.
sorry, that's the best advice i can give.
You can trump a dead torrent with a different file of similar characteristics, what else do you need? And dead torrents do no harm, why remove them then? What they need is introduce a custom bounty system for a reseed.
>mom calls me upstairs from the basement
>cheetos get all over the floor
>she says "I'm buying a lottery ticket pick some numbers"
>Ok, 1 2 3 4 5 6
>go back downstairs to farm upload on PTs
Who else /parents basement/ here?
what they need is better quality users who seed more. it always pisses me off slightly when someone downloads one of my single-seed torrents, then jumps off after minimum seeding time.
but the overall odds are still the same.
Sure it's unlikely it will be a sequential, but it doesn't change the fact it's a 1 in 135M or whatever the fuck it is. Either way he's gonna lose.
>The odds of getting 6 sequential number are far lower than 6 non sequential numbers
Yeah, but they don't need to be sequential. And even if they did then everyone would need to be sequential and therefore the odds of winning would still be the same.
The odds of getting number X is significantly smaller than getting a number that is not X.
It still doesn't fucking matter you retard. Do you think that after getting 5 tails in a row the universe will make the next flip be heads?
True but he would share his winnings with multiple people.
People always put money on these simple combinations or some others they saw in a movie or something. How many people do you think bet on the numbers from LOST?
>When was the last time any jackpot over like 400M paid out to a single person anyway?
I don't live in America so I wouldn't know. 400M? Daaamn.
I am just saying people generally love combinations from movies. It happened here once that one combination from a popular 20+ year old movie almost came up (6 out of 7 numbers) and 450 people basiclly got jack shit.
for weebs and others interested in anime/manga/J-music.
AB is a great place to start. Better than w.cd even. The invite forums on AB aren't as large as w.cd, but you still get the major shit, ptp, ahd, etc. (as well as w.cd if you want)
AB's main advantage over w.cd is how easy it is to build buffer and keep a good ratio. AB is soooo easy it's almost too easy.
>/ptg/ has so much influence on the cabal trackers that they can literally take threads down
Is that so? Normally I would scream "reddit" for these kind of replies but everyone here is anonymous. Do people really give a shit about what we say here?
Here just to prove a point; you can get exigo invites with TM elite rank.
this is why you get into AB.
18GB 1080p 10bit rip is the one i'd probably grab.
>18GB of 2d
Probably slightly, mainly in the Audio department as it is AAC vs FLAC 2.0
the 49GB one is triple FLAC 2.0 audio (japanese, english, and french) which is mainly why it's so large.
>staff in disguise wanting me to reveal more so he can know who I am
I already gave you plenty enough to identify me. If you don't recognize the style sheet and font that's your own problem.
There are literally no invites for empornium because it was previously an open signup tracker that had no invites system
For the moment you are shit out of luck if you want to get in
Whats the difference in the 2013 TV series and 2012 TV series?
>because that's the best way to get the thread taken down.
If someone is already on HDbits, who cares if there shitty recruitment thread is taken down?
Also no one with PTP + BTN needs HDbits, i have all 3 and i barely use HDbits.
>If someone is already on HDbits, who cares if there shitty recruitment thread is taken down?
Some humans actually care about the well being of other humans anon, especially within niche communities.
Interestingly, I have HDbits, PTP, AHD and BTN but I mostly use HDBits and AHD because PTP are and BTN are only useful for SD content at that point.
For video quality, probably that 32GB bit rip.
the H265 is 8bit, and also H265 tends to be a bit worse than H264 at the moment anyway, but file size the H265 is obviously much smaller while still retaining a good bit of quality. Though H265 takes more CPU power, unless you have a hardware H265 decoder.
You got it wrong. Everyone here couldn't give less of a shit for their respective communities they are on like HDbits. They only care about being the only ones in their secret clubs and hates the idea of more people getting access to them. It's only for juvenile reasons, nothing else.
I'm talking about THIS community you fucking edgerider. Some of us care about other anons.
I answered this:
>If someone is already on HDbits, who cares if there shitty recruitment thread is taken down?
stupid fucking question.
I'd still recommend the 18Gb rip over the others as I dont believe they have any noticeably higher video quality. Though if you're a stickler for FLAC audio, or you REALLY want an english dub, the larger ones are also good.
yeah I care about Flac, the 41GB or 49GB torrent? I only care for the Japanese audio and English Sub, what would be better in this case? If the 49GB has better quality I don't mind going that
closed. you'll have to get an invite.
IPT is considered bottom-feeder tier in the community and no reputable tracker is going to recruit from there or acknowledge any ratio you happen to have there.
nigga don't even pretend like public trackers have anything besides brazzers.
Guys is there a way to increase my ratio? I can't seem to find any leechers on any torrent on AB
Just seed lots of stuff
I get ~19GB per day in upload while seeding around 2.5TB of content.
I also earn another 4GB of bonus points a day while doing this. So total upload earned in 24 hours is around 23GB.
what's going on, I uploaded something on wcd and no one can apparently download it, there's 3 peers in the peer list on what but nothing's happening on my client. also tried to put it on my seedbox but there's nothing downloading. This is the first time this has happened out of 20 uploads.
>must be nice to be autistic enough to pass the application
It's made pretty clear that they want some verbosity in the application. I'd bet money that you didn't pass because all your answers were one word replies or you couldn't put together a couple sentences to type explaining why you chose your answers.
Friendly reminder not to spoonfeed retards.
>seeding three torrents for five days and asking about improving their AB ratio
>don't know what ports are
>don't know how torrents work
>don't know how a router works
>Can't read the on site wiki with al of this imformation laid out for them
>can't use google
Then it's pretty clear that they're not from here and need to be encouraged to fucking lurk more or fuck off.
Anything else is encouraging and perpetuating cancer.
donations are secured & there's still a lot of internal releases. I think the community has always mostly been dead but torrents still have amazing retention
honestly I think if they stopped forcing the internals to be exclusives so people could actually xseed it would help their swarm a lot
>honestly I think if they stopped forcing the internals to be exclusives so people could actually xseed it would help their swarm a lot
N O P E
It would be the be the death of that tracker as it would be made redundant instantaneously. The admins even say that in their recruitment threads.
but what's forcing people to stay on x264 then? the internals?
you dont think HDB/AHD have good quality internals? you dont think transparent releases are on PTP/TehC?
its nonsensical to join the tracker for its internal rls
>Anything else is encouraging and perpetuating cancer.
An ideal /g/ would be one that anons help one another with the adoption and use of technology. Instead you would rather make inane posts and be directly unhelpful for no reason other than you being a self-righteous cunt.
No no no, you're missing something important.
x264.me specializes in quality 576p bluray internal encodes. Something which PTP lacks and AHD and HDBits can't have.
The moment they stopped being exclusive they would hit PTP and nobody would ever use x264 again.
x264 is ONLY useful for 576p rips if you already have AHD/HDB/PTP/BTN. I joined it in case I wanted laptop size movies for travels but I still haven't used it once.
>I joined it in case I wanted laptop size movies for travels but I still haven't used it once.
I bet with all that knowledge about 576p x264 encodes, you were too busy fucking girls in other countries which is why you havent used them in your travels, right?
Who /MySpleen/ here? So fucking dank
>mfw have over 100 GB of original "unsolved mysteries" episodes
Because freeing those would still contribute to their redundancy?
In the admins words "We are a small niche tracker, if you could get our content elsewhere why would you want to join us"
yeah its a very very niche tracker. i think what most people like using it for is when people rip VHS tapes and seeing the old commercials on it
some big things i downloaded were basically just all those unsolved mysteries segments and a lot of late night with conan o brien vhs tapes
not those shitty ones
it's the ones that say "unsolved mysteries season # segments". they basically took every single segment from every episode that season and broke them down individually
I'm using Terminator on Ubuntu and when using screen to use autodl-irssi I cannot use Alt + arrow keys to switch between channels and servers. I can do this using the default terminal though.
seed what you partially leeched to a 1:1 ratio (or whatever the hnr ratio is on your tracker of choice) & then you can stop 'seeding'
eg - dl 3.4gb of a 7gb pack - seed 3.4gb total data and stop the torrent
>people autistic enough to pay shit ton of money to DDOS GGn/Bibliotik purely because they got butthurt one way or another
I will never know this feel of being extremely butthurt you literally leak blood out of your anus.
>is there a reason why every seedbox service isn't priced in real money?
US has shitty laws so most seedbox services are hosted where € is used.
£ is definitely genuine money
are you a mexican per chance?
>used IPTorrents as my main torrent site for like 5 years
>built up a fantastic ratio through downloading and seeding freeleech stuff (ended up with like 1.5 or 2 TB uploaded and 250 GB downloaded)
>got invites to BTN and PTP
>have literally no use for IPT anymore since basically all I downloaded was TV shows that I just get from BTN now
>all i do now on there is just try to download new movies that are released on PTP so that I can try to just seed to PTP (since it's impossible to download shit and keep a good ratio on PTP without a seedbox) and pay off the IPT hit and run with my excessive ratio
anyone know this feel?
Got a what account yesterday, and have uploaded six torrents. So far, only gotten +10mb upload (from books). Is it worth it to just keep on doing this to build a portfolio for better trackers later down the line?
This is the best encode on IPT, although it's not perfect.
Daily reminder to literally stay at your house for 12 hours in a row each time you upload something on pedro's. Also you can't seed/download/upload anything else.
How to AHD?
The guide says WCD, but I do not see a thread in the invite forum.
>(since it's impossible to download shit and keep a good ratio on PTP without a seedbox
>anyone know this feel?
No...we don't because we're not literal fucking retards. PTP is easy as fuck to keep ratio and I'm not a seedboxcuck. If you can't maintain ratio on WCD, PTP, MAM, or AB then you might as well just kill yourself.
Its available on my chink tracker which means it should be pretty much everywhere.
Anyone got any experience with harddrives on linux? I'm running a seedbox on a raspberry pi and the harddrive seems to always be on. Is there something I can use to make it hibernate when inactive to prolong its lifespan?
>Is there something... to prolong its lifespan?
Yes it's called not torturing the drive by not subjecting it to more spinup cycles than necessary.
A spinning drive is a healthy drive
Okay, thanks family. I was just worried about it because I came home to it whirring away in the 40 degree aussie heat.
I obviously don't live in the right place. All my neighbours are fucking ugly.
Can I have the btn pussy pls bawss?!
a pack of vids and 3GB don't mix
