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

>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

>tfw he builds a bigger buffer than me in a few months, surpasses my upload count, and perma seeds everything
>other normie coworkers say how awesome shit like Showbox is
>we both laugh at their pleb shit
It's a good feel actually
No, but it wouldn't hurt either. It takes a few hours to wait for and sit the interview, a few hours more to upload new torrents and abuse freeleeches then everything after that is a case of waiting.
If you intend to attempt to shame me for doing something that only a poor person would do, don't bother, I don't give a fuck.
Wait, so your question is what is the best way to store movies? like archiving them or something?
I would remove all connections and keep them at their recommended temps and maybe connect them once a month to make sure everything is ok.
Showbox is an app for Android phones that doesn't require root access. It's 'popcorn time' for users of android basically. Also it might just be a web app.

Relative newfag to /ptg/ shit, and I am alwqays busy lurking, but is the point of this literally just to get torrents not accessible publicly?
Not even about stuff that isn't available publicly, it is about speed, assured quality (or the torrent would get deleted by staff), and it's safer because you aren't connected to a public swarm.
There of course is also a wider selection available on private trackers as well and some older things with good seeders that you just wont find publicly.
so why the fuck aren't they recruiting
Maybe I am a fucking numbskull, but what would you possibly want that isn't on some public torrent site? Maybe fucking gore shit, but if I want to get the newest Photoshop, that shit is always up.
But if you have to comb for this shit, and have to be invited to some of these sites, how available really is it?
>aren't connected to a public swarm
It makes sense in a way, but isn't there safety in numbers?
Like what? Like I said above, if I want some expensive software, it is almost always available publicly.
That makes sense.
>It makes sense in a way, but isn't there safety in numbers?
No because the MPAA/RIAA/whoever wants to send you a notice, are just using a computer to make a note of every IP connected to the swarm they are monitoring. Then they generally just send out automated notices to all the IP addresses they grabbed. There is no safety in numbers because they are doing bulk collection of IPs.
>Like what? Like I said above, if I want some expensive software, it is almost always available publicly.
It really depends what kind of stuff you're interested in, if you want super old 1930s and 40s era movies in high quality encodes, there is a private tracker out there for you. Maybe you're looking for some obscure anime or porn or whatever it is.
You MIGHT be able to find it on a public tracker, but if you do it will likely not be seeded well at all, or it may not have any seeds depending on how old the torrent is.
Private trackers encourage permaseeding, and further many trackers allow you to request a reseed, meaning it will send a notice to users who it knows have at one point downloaded that particular torrent, and ask them to seed it if they still have it.
Advantages of private trackers include:
Speed: If you're familiar with torrents you probably know that the bigger the swarm, the faster you download. Private trackers encourage their members to seed torrents for as long as possible, thus guaranteeing bigger swarms for every torrent. Not only that, but many members use remote seedboxes with huge upload speeds, thus dramatically increasing the speed for many torrents, often making them available almost instantly.
Retention: Similarly, private trackers usually enforce rules that encourage long-term seeding. Many torrents for obscure content that you wouldn't normally find any peers for on ThePirateBay or KAT will be still seeded by a few peers on private trackers.
Selection: Some content simply isn't available on any public site and will only be found on private trackers. Sometimes you can't even legally buy it at all, ironically. Some trackers even specialize in obscure or rare content, ensuring that it doesn't get lost from the Internet.
Quality control: A major asset of private trackers, albeit one that can vary a lot across trackers. Good private trackers have very strict rules on content format, quality and organization. Music trackers will ensure you don't get horrible 92kbps transcodes, movie trackers will ensure you only get good encodes, ebook trackers will ensure you get retail quality, etc. Members and staff review and approve each torrent. Trumping rules and the removal of duplicates ensure you only get one, community-approved source for the specific content and format. This, coupled with a decent site layout, makes private trackers much more orderly than public ones.
Security: There are two reasons private trackers are more secure, albeit they may not apply in the future. The first one is that most of them are obscure enough that no one really knows or cares about them (security by obscurity). The second one is that copyright trolls would rather focus on huge public sites that are easy to fish
Ah, thanks guys. I am probably going to switch to private trackers (if I can even get an invite to one) now.
>But if you have to comb for this shit
>and have to be invited to some of these sites, how available really is it?
Well that parts really easy. I'm 2 months into the game and on AHD and PTP already so I can access almost all the internals I want.
I'll still never understand why the FEDs don't just invade WCD. It'd be easy as fuck. I get the whole MUH PUBLIC SITES ARE EASIER bit, but still. Just imagine taking down WCD. We all know some other site would pop up immediately taking it's place...but if WCD got taken down it would fucking rattle and scare all other trackers.
Based upon the wiki, you need an invite to access most of these private trackers, no?
>it would fucking rattle and scare all other trackers.
No it wouldn't
w.cd is known far and wide as THE place to start on private trackers because of the ease of entry and the good invite forums.
It has so many users and the interview process isn't particularly difficult I dont think too many people would be shocked if they already were infiltrated.
He is implying you shouldn't worry about getting an invite or not unless you've been banned, if you haven't been banned before then you're fine and should have no problem getting into a decent starting tracker (what.cd or animebytes).
From that starting tracker you can build yourself up to where you can then get invited to other trackers you would be more interested in (AHD, PTP, Bib, etc)
>users of what.cd own every single they thing download
LEL no need to lie to me I'm not the FBI dickhead. And I wouldn't want that to happen, I'm just saying I don't see why they wouldn't do that. Besides if some poor sack of shit has to resort to using public trackers and Yify rips I highly fucking doubt he has the money to pay their shitty little DMCA notices. Whereas someone filling requests and uploading shit on WCD, has money. Hence why you see faggots panicking in the forums.
>no it wouldn't
You must be retarded if you don't think WCD being taken down wouldn't be talked about for years. Most trackers would shit their pants.
And that's probably the only reason I would never want to be staff on one of the trackers.
>not buying it
Oh, thanks man. I thought I knew a lot about tech, come to /g/, wtf is this shit. Lurk for a while, see this tracker stuff, the wiki is a fucking mess with it repeating itself forty fucking times. I think it is somewhat understandable.
Oh, alright. That makes sense. Thanks.
>what would you possibly want that isn't on some public torrent site
Ignorance is bliss I guess. Today alone I snatched 5 albums in FLAC from jpop that weren't even on what.cd let alone public trackers.
Tonight I think I'll watch a sweet AHD remux. You just don't know how shit your life is right now.
>You must be retarded if you don't think WCD being taken down wouldn't be talked about for years. Most trackers would shit their pants.
Oh sure it would be talked about, but most smaller trackers that aren't as open as w.cd I dont think would be that rattled, everyone knows if a big one is going to get taken down, it's w.cd because of how easy it is to get in. Im not saying it wouldnt be a big deal, all I am saying is the private tracker owners out there wouldnt suddenly think they are next, almost no tracker is as easy to get into as w.cd that isn't curry.
>implying I want to listen to jpop
>you just don't know how shit your life is right now
Yeah, I am just fucking dying without my JPOP man.
If what.cd went down every tracker on earth would shit the bed except the Chinese ones.
I'd doubt any would ever recruit again, or at least not for years. I can't even imagine what would happen it would be bigger than silk road's takedown.
I won't even mention how AB is just as easy, because they probably don't give a single fuck about anime. But let's be serious here for a moment.../ptg/ always harp on and on about how easy it is to get on PTP and BTN. I mean do you really think the government don't have means to amazing fucking internet and tons of fucking hard drives? The only thing they'd have trouble with is waiting 4-6 months to be able to ask for an invite to these other trackers. And they certainly have the means and manpower to have multiple (thousands) of accounts on a bunch of trackers. And I'm sure it wouldn't cost nearly as much money to do compared to how much money they waste on other bullshit. My only question is WHY...why don't they do it. I'm not worried or scared but I'm just intrigued by why they wouldn't take down a site like WCD or PTP...literally millions of dollars being lost because of these trackers, yet they seem more concerned about taking down some weed dealer or some retarded bullshit like that. I've just always wondered about shit like this for years.
Because there is even more money lost on public trackers and streaming sites since normies have access to them you dense fuck.
>all of the content on public trackers are trickle down from private trackers
I know you're a retarded fuck but please, think before you post next time dickhead.
>all of the content on public trackers are trickle down from private trackers
That simply isn't the case, at all. Most people who actually upload to private trackers keep their shit off public trackers.
Gotta have a taste of that meme magic all the other boards have already used for catastrophes.
>doesn't mean that all the stuff on public isn't from private.
It isn't. That's extremely silly.
There is some stuff, sure, but it's not like people take it from the private tracker and upload it to the public. Most the time people get it from the source and just upload it.
Like Nyaa and AB. Nyaa usually gets stuff first and AB gets it after, but Nyaa is the public one. This might change now that AB does seasonal though, but Nyaa is still the best place if you want tons of people to get your content.
it doesn't originate from private trackers though, private trackers are rarely the source, they just rehost what scene groups release, or take what a scene group has released and make an internal encode.
They arn't the source however.
>>all of the content on public trackers are trickle down from private trackers
You have no idea of the route taken by scene releases right ?
...let's say your inane babbling was correct.
How would the feds go about taking down "the source?"
Let's say they want to kill off movie encodes. Who do they go after? PTP? They just do handjobs. They'd need to take down PTP, AHD, TehC and HDB to start making a dent.
And that still doesn't get rid of the scene.
Lurk more, newfriend.
I don't care about the source. Of course private trackers aren't the source, except for some things. In any case besides anime, everything hits private trackers before public trackers.
>everything hits private trackers before public trackers
They hit about the same time desu senpai.
The people uploading to private trackers wont always put it up on a public tracker, but many do.
You're really just showing how little you know at the moment.
No, not at all. Even videogames go from the source to public trackers just as quick as private trackers.
And anyway, just because it goes on one first, that doesn't mean fucking anything. Both get it from the source one way or another.
Who cares about the fucking source? I don't. I'm saying it goes sources > private > public and a lot of shit from private doesn't even make it to public whether that be Internal encodes, cds only uploaded to private trackers, or HDBits retard huge BD archive.
>I'm saying it goes sources > private > public
And I'm saying you're wrong. It's either uploaded to both or it never makes it to public. It isn't sources>private>public. It can get to public first or private first.
It's sources>private/public or sources>private
There is no trickle down because most people on public trackers aren't looking for those really rare CDs or movies or whatever.
It's not about getting there first or second. You're trying to state that the stuff from public trackers comes from private trackers.
They don't. They're usually uploaded around the same time, or by different users, and they both probably got it from the source.
WTF is Web 2.5?
From thedeh - "brokenstones is great for Mac, plus it has the bonus of being the most gorgeous customization I've seen of a Gazelle tracker to date, something along the lines of a Web 2.5 design and certainly the most modern Gazelle tracker currently in operation."
>It just depends man.
No it actually doesn't. There are private trackers dedicated to racing pretimes/scene public trackers are crazy slow in comparison.
This is Private Tracker General, the burden of proof is on you.
Anyone know which drives are affected by Western Digital's intellipark 'feature'?
Is it only the greens?
Lol, sure there are seedboxes dedicated to racing that will have it up 10 or 20 minutes before any public tracker, who fucking cares?
If they are both up on the same day it is irrelevant to most people who aren't farming upload for epeen.
>Then why upload it to public trackers at all?
To provide the material to more people?
When I upload things I upload them to private first, but it's become I'm invested in the community. I upload to public right after though.
I don't do this with really niche works, however. No one will download them or care about them on public trackers.
You're acting like EVERY single release ever is put on private trackers first, which just isn't true, sorry to burst your bubble.
Hell some of those seedboxes racing to grab from the scene groups upload straight to public trackers sometimes.
>When I upload things I upload them to private first, but it's become I'm invested in the community.
I upload to public right after though.
So you value private > public and even then you admit some things you only share privately meaning public does not have access to everything private.
That's what I've been saying this whole time.
>Hell some of those seedboxes racing to grab from the scene groups upload straight to public trackers sometimes.
Seedboxes for public trackers? I'm not going to believe that. Every company that allows that is total shit with shit boxes.
No you haven't. You said it trickles down from private or it goes from private to public.
If it gets uploaded on both either way, around the same time, it doesn't ''trickle down'' or come from the private tracker.
Especially if it's the same user doing it.
No one is arguing that private trackers don't have niche things you wont find on public trackers that much is obvious.
We are talking about scene releases, scene releases get put on public and private trackers at basically the same time. Anyone trying to argue that private trackers have access to scene movies faster than public is just kinda retarded and doesnt understand how the scene distributes their content.
Private trackers will always be better for non-scene releases and niche content though, I dont think anyone here would ever argue that.
Yes, the FBI and MPAA/RIAA or whatever certainly could go after PTs pretty easily but they probably don't because it's the lowest on their priority list.
They instead go after public trackers/streaming sites because it's low hanging fruit. It's piss easy to record all IPs in a swarm and send out notices. By doing so, it sends a message to a lot of normies that yes, they are watching and have a chance of getting caught. If even 5% of people get scared and don't download anymore, that's quite a huge dent really
The other priority is scene groups. They are the ones leaking movies, music, TV, etc. days, weeks, sometimes months in advance. This is how the industries probably feel they are losing the most money. And when you consider that easily half of all shit that normies download off of public trackers is scene releases, you can see why they would love to shut them down. Plus, due to the much tighter knit communities and the fact that virtually all participants in a group are committing major crimes (in the eyes of FBI/industry), they would be very easy to convict and would probably give up all kinds of juicy info on their fellow members/scene groups for lesser penalties. You can see why they would much rather spend their effort infiltrating a scene group.
PTs on the other hand are mostly just sharing stuff between themselves in a special little club. The only ones that are probably on the radar are internal encode groups, and their stuff gets far less attention than scene releases since scene stuff comes out so much sooner.
I was never that anon who stated it trickles down. Most likely that's this guy >>52516727
I've argued that Private take precedent over public in almost all cases except anime and I'm yet to hear any argument against that.
You are talking about scene releases. I am talking about sources, those may or may not be scene. In any case if you can upload to both even at the same time, the private will get not only more but also get shit first.
>I've argued that Private take precedent over public in almost all cases except anime and I'm yet to hear any argument against that.
But what does that even mean? If the person with the source has access to a private and public tracker, then yeah usually people will upload to private first, just because those people actually care about the hobby more.
Most the time there are multiple uploaders who upload around the same time anyway.
>I am talking about sources
Well the source for almost everything is scene groups... Only the really niche stuff is actually sourced by the uploader, such as rare anime or old movies/TV/Music. Everything coming out new is probably coming from a scene group. That's just how it works.
>Most likely that's this guy >>52516727 (You)
God no I never said anything like that. I'm just shitposting funny maymays because whatever this guy is trying to say it's incoherent as fuck.
>Well the source for almost everything is scene groups...
My entire argument is private > public in every form possible including speed and depth to content except maybe for anime.
I cannot accept a public tracker being superior or even equal in any way.
> the source for almost everything is scene groups
This is just wrong and what.cd and HDBits are gleaming towers of how wrong that is.
>This is just wrong and what.cd and HDBits are gleaming towers of how wrong that is.
For music sure because it's much simpler, for movie releases? Show me a single thing HDB has gotten BEFORE it was released by a scene group.
No, the dude replying now jumped in cause he thought we were saying public trackers were just as good as private, which isn't at all the point of what we were arguing, we were just saying public and private get scene releases at the same exact time essentially.
>Show me a single thing HDB has gotten BEFORE it was released by a scene group.
Kek, let's try any bluray or bluray encode of almost and movie released before this decade, 95% of their WEB-DL content (it all comes from HDB and BTN users) Any Dtheater release, the thousands of user caps that scene never did, just off the top of my head
Now that animebytes is doing seasonal releases there's no reason to use anything else unless you don't want to maintain a ratio. Even then, their freeleech policy is extremely liberal
It has everything
I wont argue any of that, I am just really talking about current releases. For things coming out now and releasing now, the scene groups are almost always going to have it out before any private tracker, hell most people on HDB probably can't be bothered to buy the bluray themselves and are just going to wait for the scene rip to come out so they can encode it themselves.
Obviously niche things or older releases HDB or whoever is more likely to get it because it wont ever be touched by a scene group.
>exception makes the rule ;)
Okay... i didn't say that, just told you to fuck off, either way
You'll get the same scene content as in Private Trackers, except for some exclusive shit [AKA shit], and with probably better speeds than PTs
The problem would be organization, QC, and P2P content [AKA content produced by the tracker members], and they can take out content at any time
Also, you won't have to worry about buffer and shit
>If what.cd went down every tracker on earth would shit the bed except the Chinese ones
Until the hundred thousand refugees flock to Waffles or some other site, reupload all their content there, and get enough incentives from devs due to their new-found popularity to the point they'll develop a framework better and newer than Gazelle, and again publish it for the use of a myriad of potential new tracker sysops
Haven't you heard thats a 1s and 0s tracker
rutracker is an ok substitute for what and it can already handle a much higher load and has survived numerous "takedown" and cencorship attempts
I gave that as an example due to the sheer amount of content there, it'd be quicker to get back up to WCD's level of releases than any other (private) music tracker that I'm aware of.
>go to check how many uploads they have
>"File not found"
But as I said, they'd inevitably gain most of the better/more frequent uploads from What (TMs etc.), and I've already spoken with them about the idea of writing a new codebase for their site. And even if they didn't become the new What, someone would take meteor-gazelle (or another project) and achieve the same.
Can't pop the piracy balloon
>tfw all it takes is one or two shitposts to derail the thread into a 2 hour discussion about nonsense

/ptg/ makes this waaay too easy.
>inb4 this turns into another 2 hr discussion about nonsense
>being this obvious
Maybe next time chief. I recommend you scroll up and see my previous posts and learn how it's done. Shitposting isn't a hobby, it's a way of life. You have to be dedicated enough to truly master it. With that being said I'm off to shitpost on /tv/, maybe you can try again in the next thread.
Let me tell you something
>they certainly have the means and manpower to have multiple (thousands) of accounts on a bunch of trackers
As a person who works for the US Government, I can tell you that that is completely not true. Government lacks the resources, the will, and the coordination. In addition to that, there's too much bureaucracy and they would have real legal issues if they were 1000s of accounts on private trackers and sharing illegal mat'l.
That's a good question.
I've got a what.cd but I almost never use it.
Spent a while trying to get in, got in, realized there was no reason to get in. Got a good ratio now I just sit on the account for the day I might want more music again.
>This is literally why I can't have nice things.
>have you ever not been able to find something?
On what.cd? God no, only when I'm intentionally looking for /mu/ meme throat sounds bullshit or really underground brapp brapp shit but even then their selection is impressive.
What.CD is bigger than iTunes+Spotify+Google Music+whatever else put together. If you need music, start there. It's one of those trackers that has to be seen to be believed.
>how did you get in?
To DB9? From a friend on IRC. I'm also TM on what.cd so that helps I guess.
>as a person who works for the US Government
SHUT THE FUCK UP.
>government lacks the resources, the will, and the coordination
KEK, so they have the necessary resources, will, and coordination to fight in multiple wars and try to track down multiple terrorist cells and leaders and child pron rings but they can't coordinate a plan to bring down some shitty private trackers?
TOP FUCKING ZOZ, I know it's b8 but cmon, that's just horrible familia, you weren't even trying.
I've got nothing worth uploading, I don't have standing on any private trackers, I don't know shit about transcodes or bitrates, my connection is average at beast, and I'm ignorant about music in general.
Can I pass a What.cd interview?
Final is Ridley's ideal version of the film. On top of that it's had a lot of touch ups over the previous 'Director's Cut'.
That particular internal looks fucking incredible too, watched it the other day.
Yeah definitely. There's an anon here that explains it best (I thinks it's alzy desu) but the gist of what he says is that the interview is just designed to find users that can read information (www.whatinterviewprep.com), understand it and apply it as well as patient enough to wait in line as it filters the curries and those users are more likely to read and follow the rules.
EVERYTHING you need is on the prep site. Just study it until you UNDERSTAND it ALL and you will pass first go
It's good about 75%-80% of things. What's easy if you don't care about quality, you just get V2, V0 or 320 whichever one is better seeded. I mostly get the V0 because it's usually the best seeded.
>I don't give a fuck about FLAC or any of that dumb shit. I just want the right song.
Lurk more faggot.
Using 1998 meme formats is far, far stupider than transcoding your FLACs to vorbis-aotuv-lancer or Opus.
Depends what you mean by permaseeding. I have a seedbox and a NAS I could probably seed with, but I usually stop seeding after a few weeks-months depending on what it is, how big it is, etc.
Well music is pretty fucking small if you're talking about V0.
What allows you to download your first 20GB with no required ratio provided those torrents are 100% seeded.
In V0 20GB ~=200 albums
WORD OF CAUTION, I CAN'T TELL YOU TEH SOURCE OF THIS BUT WORD AROUND IS WCD WILL SOON TRANSITION TO VOIP INTERVIEWS TO COMBAT ACCOUNT ABUSE
THAT'S RIGHT, INTERVIEWS ON VENT/MUMBLE/TS. "SOON" IS KEYWORD, DON'T WAIT TOO LONG
Whats the best way to get a good ratio on private trackers? I seed torrents on AB constantly but no one ever downloads them, so I only have like 1.5GB of upload (though I have almost no download (thanks freeleech), so my ratio is still extremely good)
Why even bother getting your ratio up?
Every 1080p download is freeleech. Download it, seed it for the allotted time you need to seed, and then stop seeding. Your ratio will be infinite. If there is a series with only 480p-720p, download it, and by then you should have some yen you can maybe get a gig or two with. If not you should still have some upload from the required seeding.
They're doing seasonal anime now, so you can get a lot of ratio with that if you want.
You get an absurd amount of freeleech torrents and you never stop seeding them. Take advantage of global freeleech days in particular, grab anything that you think will be in demand. But most importantly, never stop seeding anything. You survive in private trackers by keeping hundreds or thousands of torrents open seeding at 0-5 kb/s a piece.
Alternatively grab yourself a seedbox if you want to be a cheating ninny.
...i hope someone doesn't spoonfeed you the answer, this shit is simple. The uploads aren't even the difficult part about getting PU on AB, it's the 2 week account age that is the biggest issue.
Many other things come in to play when calculating yen, account age, average seeding time, seeding size, number of seeders on a particular torrent, etc.
Is it worth it investing in a NAS early on just for PTs? My plan is to spend a measly 200$ per month or so for just WD reds, then buy something compatible with freeNAS+ZFS. Good/bad idea?
I'm tired of loosing drives for going the JBOD route.
Yeh, i know, still the difference is big
Account age doesnt matter after 1 month
Haven't seeded any torrent for more than 1 year, so seeding time doesn't matter too [the multiplier kicks after a year of seeding time]
Average seeding time doesn't factor in that ecuation
I mean, you're seeding 5~6 times what i do, yet you make only twice the yen
Like I said, things like size of what you are seeding as well as how many other seeders are seeding it will influence it as well.
If you have a 60GB torrent seeding but it has 150 other seeders, it's hardly worth any yen.
On the other hand you could have a 10GB torrent that you're the only seeder on. It would be worth far more yen.
That explains a lot
So your account age multiplier should be *1.9~
This means that in 70 days approx. [when your account age multiplier goes to down to *1] you would be making 2400~2600 yen per day [if you don't get more shit to seed]
So basically, I should snatch as much freeleech shit as I can while I'm still green and seed it while my belly's still soft.
That's if you're going for Seeding Size and maximum Upload [what most people want]
If you want to farm BP like crazy, you should get torrents that are less than 1GB, as these break the Torrent Size formula [well, more like exploit]
And the ones that have less seeders
And yeah, exploit your account age multiplier while you still can
You know, that's literally the AB formula, without the account age bonus, a 4 divisor, and at ^ 0.95
So the exploit is the same, snatch shit with a torrent size smaller than 1GB, and with low seeder count for maximum Nip output
>You know, that's literally the AB formula, without the account age bonus, a 4 divisor, and at ^ 0.95
>So the exploit is the same, snatch shit with a torrent size smaller than 1GB, and with low seeder count for maximum Nip output
On AB, torrents below a certain filesize reward a static amount of yen, which is why the exploit is worthwhile. On OT, there is no minimum. It's all proportional to filesize. The exponential also curbs your earning growth pretty hard.
So they took ABs formula and made it a bit more unforgiving.
Wonder if they did it for any particular reason or they just wanted to make it different from ABs so it didnt look like they copied.
>On AB, torrents below a certain filesize reward a static amount of yen, which is why the exploit is worthwhile
I was ignoring completely the 10MB minimum for the explot
A 16GB torrent would have a *4 multiplier in the size formula
a 1GB torrent would have a *1 multiplier
a 100MB has a *0.3~ multiplier
With 16 1GB torrents i CAN [not guaranteed] make 4 times the yen/nip than with a 16GB torrent
With 3 100MB torrents i can make as much Nip/Yens as with a 1GB torrent [not guaranteed]
They're not trying to pretend they didn't copy it. They openly admit they did. They changed it to prevent people from exploiting it like you're describing.
It's also more sane imo. Having account age factor into how much you make is really stupid because it's irrelevant, and they also removed that magic 4 in the divisor.
>How can I abuse their bonus point system?
Their bonus point system is specifically made to not be abusable. If you want lots of bonus points, you have to seed lots of content, which is exactly what they want from you and thus not at all "abuse"
