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

>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

Only what.cd has good scripts ptp will ban you even if they can't prove/know for sure you cheated, their classic answer when they DON'T KNOW: suspicion.
Others are less good.
you don't even have to "download files you don't need" on AHD. But since he wants to "build buffer" instead of "watching movies that i'm interested in", that's the fastest way to do it.
>>he doesn't have a whole bookshelf full of CDs just waiting to be uploaded to WCD
>>he doesn't go on rutracker and upload the rare shit to WCD
>>he doesn't go to the library and rent CDs just to upload them to WCD
>>he doesn't transcode FLAC files immediately after they're uploaded
>>he doesn't even FILL REQUESTS
>all of these things I have just said helped me to improve my ratio ALONE
wtf, no, I have neither bookshelves nor CDs in 2016.
Why should I spend so much time/effort just to pirate shit? You can usually find it on rutracker anyway and even seeding is optional there.
I'm not going to literally get into my car and drive somewhere just to keep myself using some website, and I don't want to make a habit of checking for new FLACs every few minutes trying to be the first uploader.
Ah well, then could you guys give some advice on HQ DVD ripping? (I'm on OS X, I know it's not the best but since I fell for it I better get used to it) (I'm on a MacBook Pro btw, not those shitty MacBook Airs)
>>Why should I spend so much time/effort just to pirate shit?
>WHY SHOULD I EVER CONTRIBUTE TO A PRIVATE BITTORENT TRACKER?! FUCK THIS, I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE ANY EFFORT WHATSOEVER ON CONTRIBUTING, INSTEAD I WILL LEAVE MY ACCOUNT TO ROT AND INSTEAD USE RUTRACKER
Yes, you have. Torrents of old or not-so-popular movies rarely get even 10 downloads, if it's not an internal or user release which get some auto snatches. No one cares about this shit on AHD. So if you download/watch movies often and it's not only popular stuff you will not get any upload on most of torrents you downloaded.
I'm willing to seed til the end of eternity, and I'd love to upload anything I have lying around, if I had anything. I'll even leave my computer on just to seed.
But I'm not going to fucking rent some CD from the library for permission to use a website.
I can't believe you actually do this.
Do you actually do this? For what? Why don't you just get your music from rutracker?
> tfw no soft economy on TehC
Why senpai ? If I watch movies that normies don't want to watch, how am I supposed to build a nice buffer ? And keep participating to the tracker ?
Also, is there some kind of userscript to find movies in seeder surge ?
>But I'm not going to fucking rent some CD from the library for permission to use a website.
Why do you believe that you should get everything for free? Even the people who order the CDs upload onto WCD. This is only for one reason only.
This is probably the entire point of private (and public) torrent trackers.
Also, in my post, I said that I use rutracker to get the rare shit onto WCD. Did you not read my post in its entirety?
The answer is UPLOAD MORE SHIT. You would actually be contributing to society if you would just get out of your chair and upload shit. Do the method you've been doing, download from rutracker and upload to WCD. That's what I do.
I messed up. I was going to say if you hypothetically lost access to ahd/ptp/hdb/tehc/bB where would you get similar content. I see nethd share lots of HDB internals for eg.
Because Dion only ever cranks the bitrate when he can't achieve perfect autismo transparency after testing every. single. fucking. setting. He also has an autismo level monitor so it's only bigger because he thinks it has to be.
Both encodes are from the same source.
Also MTP hasn't been encoding as long.
What do people mean when they say "transparency" talking about movies?
New at encoding stuff, is there any guides out there to understand the basics, or should I just rummage the PTP tutorials? This is way more complicated and autismal then music related things.
>Look at the mediainfo
That's what I was trying to do senpai but the settings are gibberish to me, which is why I was asking for guidance. I know that subme is better higher, as is rc_lookahead and that mbtree=0 is better. I'm pretty sure deadzone means there's debanding, and that me_range is better higher but only when there's fast camera work. That's about it, and that may not all be correct either.
>is there some kinda rss feed i can setup?
Yes. I was using utorrent for this, it has the RSS auto downloader. You get the link from AHD RSS page, put it in your client and set up the filters so it would only download 75 or 100% FL torrents. Also, change the feed update interval to minimum - 5 minutes. That gave me good results, but seedboxers rule on AHD and there's not much activity from non-seedbox users on movies that aren't new/popular, so even with auto download buffer doesn't come so easy compared to some other trackers.
Transparency in this context refers to an encode being perceptually (with the human eye) identical to the source.
What are you trying to do? I'm happy to have some real discussion.
BUY NEW DRIVES OR DIE!!!
Filelist(home of all play groups), uhdbits(home of tayto)
Nothing in particular, just trying to learn the basics. I already learned how to rip perfect .flac albums for WCD, now I'm trying to learn how to encode some stuff to get a higher rank on PTP. I was looking at the handjob tutorial, that seems like the easiest to learn but doesn't produce the best encodes (prob won't get GP on PTP).
Anyone here knowledgeable in NAS/raid configs?
I wanted to invest into buying 1 red WD 5tb drive a month, until I get 4+ to make a NAS.
If I already have those drives filled by the time I decide on assembling my NAS (with ZFS+any linux distro instead of windows), will I have to erase the contents to make it RAID or is it possible to keep the data?
Or is my plan fucked and I need to buy 4+ HDDs and make the NAS+RAID right away?
If you don't tweak advanced settings and don't do test encodes to see the changes (and tweak setting more) you'll never get a transparent encode. Most Handjobs are done with default settings. Better start with the advanced guide or this: /wiki.php?action=article&id=231
ITT NEET cucks whoring themselves out to private trackers because they are too poor to buy movies or music.
And just lol if you use private trackers for games or anime
Greens are discontinued, they've been merged with Blues.
Reds are the same disks with an extra year of warranty and different firmware. Hack the firmware so you don't get excessive head rests and you're fine.

kek, thanks for the reaction images. You've been played my man.
Upload BTN internals to rarbg.
That is...if they don't already have them.
Finally open BTW.
So close... I need to rank up on BTN then I would win :^)
welp looks like i know what i need to do
Just download and seed. I didn't even try and I got like 2.5 ratio
used to be a good source of tracker news/info, especially before /ptg/ was a general - i haven't used it in about three years though
all crap except for sinderella maybe
Rate my autism
Huh? DB9 is literally the most useful trackers out of the epeen group. E**** and Pedro's bring nothing more than WCD does.
Sinderella is a tracker I want to get onto because everyone loves porn.
AoM is an embarrassing meme.
>DB9 is literally the most useful trackers out of the epeen group
Only if you're a hardcore DnB fan. It's worthless for anything else. And you could say that What has most of DB9's library as well.
But could you answer the question, please?
DB9 has an extensive music archive which WCD doesn't have. As far as I'm aware, Pedro's barely has any "exclusive" FLACs which WCD actually lacks. I suppose the strict upload rules are okay but anyone who cares can do the exact same from WCD snatches too.
Sorry senpai I don't quite get the question. Does DB9 had Pedro's recruitment? I don't think P recruits from anywhere
What's the hardest private tracker to get accepted into?
Oh, not sure, I haven't posted enough to get the right userclass
Why isn't CGPeers registration open? I need mah tutorials n shit.
>DB9 has an extensive music archive which WCD doesn't have
Wut. It has some "exclusive" DnB shit, that's all.
>As far as I'm aware
So, you're not there and you don't know what it really has, but all you really know is only what anons told you here and now you're just blindly repeating their words. Typical /ptg/ kek.
>You mistyped the CAPTCHA, or the CAPTCHA malfunctioned
>So, you're not there and you don't know what it really has, but all you really know is only what anons told you here and now you're just blindly repeating their words. Typical /ptg/ kek.
That's exactly what you're doing in the same exact post, smfh senpai
DB9 has 80k active torrents, around half of them are exclusives. Evidently I expect some are incorrectly tagged as exclusive or have been uploaded elsewhere since release, but it's still a huge amount of content that WCD doesn't have access to.
If you're going to shitpost because you're bitter you don't have an epeen tracker or whatever then I'll stop replying.

If some torrent "exclusive" on DB9, that doesn't mean someone haven't bought, ripped and uploaded the same disc to any other tracker, including What. By the way, I didn't say that DB9 is bad, I said it's not better than What in any other genre, except DnB.
I wish it were possible to ban people you invited. Seriously, I'm so sick of inviting fucking "collector's", aka people that just want to get invited so they can say they're in the site, but dont care about even building a decent ratio first.
I've invited 4 people. ALL 4 have not touched the site, and it's been +2weeks. These are the same people that were really interested in joining too.
>tfw only need public trackers and shut off the torrent the second its finished downloading
feels good man
>tfw on all the private trackers i need and can tease /tv/ niggers with private tracker only content to get them pissed off
feels good man
>pictures of based Rat King in /ptg/
I approve of this.
There's literally nothing wrong with collecting. And it's up to a site to make itself worth using, not up to a user to use a site.
You people are retards. That's like opening a store and demanding everyone who walks in there buy something and banning people who don't.
I have unlimited bandwidth, and decent upload speed. Any good JAV private trackers? That might actually be worth the effort of maintaining a ratio, since I can just leave shit running on my other machines.
>tfw no qt chess playing gf
This the last straw my friend
Then in heaven I will join my sweet chess playing gf
>mfw it's true
What tracker has the best collection of rare pepes?
get qt gf, teach chess. more fun.
i've found a few things, but it's exhausting because most of it isn't anymore (some even went out of print/sale) so i just stick to looking at new requests and get lucky every other day or so.
>Stop posting this, it's not funny. Most trackers require you to seed more/longer than them.
I've never posted this here before.
The overseeding rule punished you for seeding TOO MUCH in terms of bandwidth.
The idea behind Pedro's overseeding rule was that high-speed seeders take "upload" away from people with slow connections, modems etc...
So you were punished for overseeding because you "took" upload from modem users.
That was years ago and it annoyed me so much that I quit Pedro.
Wait does this count for home connections as well?
So because i happen to have 150mbps upload and can outseed the majority of users I would get banned for "overseeding"?
Lol wut, add pedros to the list of never joins.
they have a similar thing at tvcuk. seedbox users are requested to pause new torrents at x3 upload and turn on again after the initial swarms have died down.
it's a request rather than an enforced rule, but it's just to give home connection users more upload.
KG has this, but only for their freeleech. At 3x upload, the tracker will start giving an error. If you just pause and restart the torrent, it will keep seeding. No consequences for continuing to seed, it is just a request.
>complaining about bad ratio
/ptp/ is one of the best trackers for people that can't seed well. All you have to do is seed for a long time and convert bonus points into upload.
WCD drum.and.bass FLAC: 13,563 Results
DB9 drum.and.bass FLAC: 14,044 Results
WCD drum.and.bass 320: 16,034 Results
DB9 drum.and.bass 320: 27,746 Results
nobody cares about V2/V0 inflating the results
Well, maybe things changed nowadays but when i tried other trackers like what.cd the point system was not enough to keep a decent ration.
And I have a dedicated server for this shit. I still was kicked out after like 2 months.
Sorry to hear that desu.
V0 is transparent to 320, no point shitting on V0 if you aren't also going to shit on 320.
I'm fine if you're gonna be an autist and only care about FLAC, but the dude brought up 320 count like it mattered and then specifically said v0/v2 are shit and dont count.
Like nigga, if you are gonna count 320, you gotta count V0 at least.
V0 still offers up to 320kbps, but since it's variable bit rate that 10 seconds of silence in your song isn't 10 seconds of 320kbps wasted space like it would be with 320CBR.
yes, and consider the amount of freely available bandcamp junk on what.cd, that is a big difference
try uploading 500 drum and bass torrents to what.cd and let me know how you get on
Okay? You can easily transcode that into V0 and save a decent bit of space.
I'm not saying 320 is shit, i'm not saying DB9 is shit, hell i'm not even on w.cd.
All I am saying is V0 is essentially the same as 320kbps for all intents and purposes, it's just a variable bitrate and doesn't waste as much space when it doesn't need to. It can still offer the same 320kbps that 320CBR does, but 320CBR is constant 320kbps even when it doesnt need to be. That's just wasted space.
Because I dont care about most music?
I'm on animebytes and jpopsuki, I get my music from there.
i could get on w.cd, but why waste the hard drive space and the time on a site I have no interest in?
No, I just like classical and asian stuff.
Classical I can get everything from public trackers because it's classical and the RIAA doesnt seem to give a shit. And asian stuff I get from animebytes and jpopsuki.
you think you have an opinion yet aren't a what.cd member
>he thinks being on a private tracker actually makes him more qualified to speak on something technical
fucking kek, i'm on jpopsuki, it isn't w.cd but it's still a music private tracker, and since we are discussing the technical aspects of 320CBR vs V0 VBR, I really dont think it matters what private tracker I am on.
Facts are facts you dumb nigger.
