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
How the hell are we burning through so many of these threads every day.
Unless you've collected dozens of trackers and been banned across all of them, you can't really compile a full list of the 'cabal'. And even then, you're only certain that you were banned for that particular type of infraction. Not all of these sites will ban you for the same reason, but it doesn't mean they don't still have access to that data.
>>I actually am African-American (only half tho)
Lol nigger needs money. Awww poor nigger.
$350 is nothing to me. I make that in less than 2 days because I'm White and educated.
Enjoy selling your account, nigger. Still won't get you a job.
>I actually am African-American
Yes, we figured from your behavior, nigger.
Lesson to all those reading this: only niggers sell their accounts. When you buy an account, you are dealing with a nigger.
>muh secret club
>muh special tests
topkek i guess failures need to feel important too
I pirate because I am not going to give my real name, phone, address or anything to some company just to have them stream or deliver movies to me.
Also, why the fuck would anybody pay for something that is free?
>still not sure why I didn't see someone talk about U2 yet fucking plebs ISO haters
Has nothing to do with that, it's because getting into U2 is a right pain in the ass. I'd love to dedicate a few TB of my HDDs and my 150mbps upload speed to U2 content, but I doubt I'll ever get invited unless I ever make friends with someone already there.
yes i do
to make people who have nothing in their life feel important & special
it is that simple
>inb4 muh quality!
>tfw the link to that site was posted on /g/ a while back when part of it's DB was leaked
>tfw I spoke to other staffers through their IRC and managed to get the name of who runs it
I'm not going to spoonfeed you on what private trackers are really about. Unless you got that info from some lying motherfucker on /g/ then I just consider you as a measly shitposter and should be avoided at all times.
Stop putting words in my mouth, I never said like that you stupid motherfucker.
does umatrix make an entry in the context menu? i hate having buttons on my browser so i'm using noscript+cookie monster+requestpolicy, which are all accessible from the context menu. the screenshots for umatrix on amo only show a big graphical interface from a button for it.
I'm going to need some details, Brian.
1 process ONLY does the things 3 of your current extensions do?
I can almost guarantee the 3 you currently use are more resource intensive than that 1 extension by itself would be
Back before I was a NEET, Sunday was the worst fucking day of the week. You're supposed to be enjoying yourself but all you can feel is the creeping dread of the full work week right around the corner.
Thursday+Friday+Saturday for life yo.
probably, but i have 16gb of ram and don't really care. rather have the 3 with interfaces that work exactly how i want than switch to something new that doesn't do everything i want out of it for a minor performance boost.
>are you at least using clover?
No, note 5 spen features like hovering over the post number and having it pop-up the post in question, or hovering over an image automatically pops it up full size.
A while ago I got banned for trying to post a webm
It didn't even go through, the filter caught the webm before it could be posted and banned me on the spot
I guess some things are just too vile for 4chin
the first b& i remember is from posting the text in pic related, which allegedly gives you mod powers.
what webm was it?
Post your comfy reaction when BTN was permanently closed off from normies who were too late to the party to get in, thus creating the perfect tracker
It's obviously retarded, but possibly the reasoning is that they know AB is just a gateway tracker for most people who don't give a fuck and will abuse the system once they get through.
which release of ouran on ab is best?
i'm thinking of going with tcl's 720p because it's upscaled anyway, it looks good compared to some of the low bitrate 1080ps up (except maybe the dual video one, but fuck that), and there's complaints with subs for an unspecified 1080p release in the comments saying that tcl's are good in comparison
but i always feel so tempted to go for 1080p with anime even though it's retarded most of the time
do you mean a screenshot of the torrent group or encode comparison screenshots?
>mfw moralfags try to discourage someone from selling an account they don't need with retarded logic
Not that anon but i looked at the screenshots and yeah the 1080 versions dpm
look to good. Shame the PFL release has no description or screenshots because it might be the best one but you can't know for sure without more info. So your safest bet is probably the TCL one.
You blanked the username but not the username in the edit you fuck.
>mfw people consider selling their accounts to top trackers
i was looking into the e-d-labeled 1080p since they usually have the best encode for sd stuff, but the description said it's just the e-d subs muxed into video from an unnamed source. i think i'll go with tcl since the filesize is smaller than actual e-d's and it looks pretty sharp for an upscale, thanks for the input.
the pfa release seems bizarre, i don't think i've ever seen anything bd sourced and hardsubbed like that. i honestly think ab should force you to put up a screenshot or 2 with an upload like most video trackers do. not necessarily even a source comparison, just something to give you at least an inkling of an idea of what you're downloading.
It rewards users to upload screenshots but as requirement I don't think up loaders would appreciate that.
Also once you start downloading and acquiring yen there isn't much incentive to upload screenshots desu. I'm actually going to start uploading screenshots so I could help the community out more. Wish I could donate.
Looking to move away from ipt due to them being kinda shitty.
Currently on What and ipt but I don't have access to the power user forum on what. Where can I go to get reputable invites?
My what ratio is 0.6
My ipt ratio is 24.5
Apply to AB, even if you don't watch weebshit, and download a lot of freeleech, seed it. Then download FLAC that doesn't have MP3 as well, transcode them to MP3, 10 uploads. As Power User enjoy invites to a quite a few decent private trackers.
Currently trying, just seems like it will take a long time to get up to PU with my current situation
While it suits all my download needs, I'd rather spread my accounts around in case sites go down and I lose any proof of maintaining a good ratio anywhere.
People say it's the best general tracker but what other general trackers are there even ?
I joined IPT via AB but everyday I'm tempted to delete my account because I'm ashamed I even use it. I even donated by I wanted to hit n r some software. I don't even see a difference between it and kat desu.
you guys really have nothing better to do than keep a shitty meem alive huh..
I just got an account on AB anyone want to be friends? ^_^
is so shit lmao, to think there are people who want to get in to it. jesus, biggest waste of time.
of course uploaders wouldn't appreciate needing to put in extra work, but it takes minimal effort and literally every other video tracker worth being on requires it because it's legitimately important. and like you said, there's little incentive for the rest of the site's userbase to fill in missing screenshots, so the responsibility should fall on the uploader to put up at least one screenshot first.
if it's going to cause you a lot of trouble don't worry about it lol
but i have some matching frame comparison screenshots on my drive to upload for a series that i can't seem to upload with the flash uploader and it's not worth it to me to switch to another browser every time i want to put a screenshot up
idk why you can't just upload them using the normal image upload page and link them
>I want to seed them on PTP and BTN. If I was on TSH, I'd want to seed them on there too.
The reason I don't seed popular files on PTP or BTN is because I want to keep my seedtime high. I don't want to have to keep episodes of a popular show if I can download and dump them on TSH. Meanwhile, I can use BTN and PTP for rare stuff like old movies and nostalgic TV shows that I can permaseed.
Bigboyz is also good for downloading popular stuff and never having to seed it since there's so much freeleech and no HnR rules or seedtime recording.
It's basically how I got on HDBits since they want a high seedtime.
Wew lad that's some deep psychological analysis from across a screen.
They initially only accepted people with lots of ratio proofs etc. but opened up recruitment on a bunch of trackers a few months ago. They've always had invites sections however.
>comes into a thread I made to tell me to fuck off
The staff is fine, the community however is gay as fuck.
It's like if /a/ and /v/ had a gay marriage and then adopted a homosexual kid and raised him on shitty VNs and shit anime shows. Enjoy your time on there familia.
>go onto PTP to check for any new GP
>see this new "Personal Rip" section there now

There are two new fields on the request creation and edit pages where you can link to a torrent that can be used as source for encoding, and link to a store page where the movie can be purchased to fill the request.
Please do not link to pre-orders.
Unrelated new feature: latest personal rips are shown on the home page.
I have a 3 year old AB account with a good ratio (2.0). Are there any (non-anime) movie or TV show trackers I'd be able to gain entry to with this on my belt?
Forgive my ignorance, never been particularly big into this /ptg/ thing.
