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.

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
>around 60% of posters here chat shit - don't make any claims about sites based on "something you read here once"
If you have access to private trackers, you have a moral duty to reupload to public trackers.
By putting up with byzantine rules and regulations to share content with others, you martyr yourself for the good of mankind.
>ywn have eva green lay on your chest while you caress her hair and softly touch her face.
6 minutes? not too bad. did hiro lower the ban times for certain things? I thought minimum was 24 hours?
BTN, that's it. I'm gonna be PTP very soon as long as they don't change anything, then AHD at some point, but BTN is the big one really. Just need them to open recruitment again and we'll be good to go.
So, it's you. Who posts these nazi QT's.
Upload more than 50 uploads to AB that aren't transcodes-at least 10 more uploads to reach 60 uploads or some odd number.
AHD/PTP/ and not sure how I will get on BTN yet but hopefully what is a good avenue for that-working towards elite there.
Good question, I guess just the autism Tracker RPG...
I'm everywhere I want to be, but, I guess I want more lumens and bp on BTN. How far should I rank on there? Any benefits to upper levels?
Do less RPG and enjoy try to enjoy more the content I have access to.
Download and seed torrents with very very few seeds. Seed for looong periods of time to get maximum points and maximum multipliers.
When you hit about the 1tb mark of storage you'll be making about 100k a month, from there remove any torrents which are now overseeded and giving you less bonus. Pickup new torrents to fill the space.
>Have you seen inglourious basterds?
You can smell the matzah balls even when you
/mu/ please leave.
Last time I was there it was an average piece of shit tracker, thing is PTP recruits from there.
BTN here I cum, I got my 250$ ready.
only to be honest-- statistics of 100k a month are pulled out of the air. i dunno if it were more or less..
also they run those promos where you get double-- all the bonuses are stackable so you will have mega points.
also having big torrents (like seasons of the wire or your other favorite shows in HD) isn't necessarily going to hurt you too much. You're limited by effort as far as the low-seeded torrents while using big torrents could net you decent BP if you seed for longer times.
i only remember having twice the points I need for my next levels and simply not having the snatches to rankup. It's 3 years later I'm still working on the snatches and sitting at 3mil bonus points.
kek so the whole pyramid basically.
Not really, KG & CG have stuff that ptp doesn't occasionally so you can upload from there. I've found foreign ddl sites are the best bet though, pretty much anything that isn't a mainstream scene film rip will not be on ptp and you can upload it. Unless it's indian because ptp has some autistic curry there always uploading his honeyHD level shit.
Easy bib upload if you want a few gigs of buffer
Make sure to add the bib torrents paused, recheck them to 100%, and only THEN start them. Only then will you get any upload, if you announce to the tracker with an incomplete torrent, you will count as a freeloader and will get NOTHING.
There's way more comics and manga with leechers and no seeds if you want to build some easy ratio. You can also try cross-seeding audiobooks or big magazine packs, some can easily be found on public trackers or rutracker.
Oh one more thing-- if you don't wanna affect your monthly electric bill by keeping your Comp on 24/7 you could try a seedbox, should be about $15/month. Torrents seeded from both IPs will also receive double bonus points (info circa 2012)
Forums should have some comparison data on various seedbox hosting companies-- bytesizedhosting is one of the greatest in my experience.
I don't know if you care about Upload stats, if you do then seedboxes are great way to get upload credit because with their superspeed compared to your home connection they can download your favorite episodes in 20 seconds, and if you're on soon after release you actually receive A LOT of upload credit per episode. Delete episodes after minimum timeframe's over because seeder competition and lower volume of new downloads will reduce your returns to near zero compared to your high-bonus torrents.
You're on point-- I realized eventually there's no point getting higher statistics where I really only wanted to be able to send-out a couple of invites and my only real activity was downloading and watching my favorite shows
>tfw after three years of snatching and grabbing torrents I still have over a month average seed time.
I haven't wasted too much time getting my ranks up & after realizing there were no savory options to obtain more snatches. Note: Seedbox on autodownload everything >100mb and <200mb is an easy way to obtain enough snatches. Because I realized my contributions (keeping older/obscure torrents alive & increasing speed to new downloaders) weren't valued I eventually simply use the site to download my favorite shows.. ratio still looks good though :)
I thought TL was a Christian tracker, what is this shit?
Hold on...Let me just pull out mah DICK!
More snatches?! Always upload more shit, there are ppl that will always snatch your shit even if leeches are small.DESU you don't need seedbox for e-books.
TL is hard to leech pushing noobs into paytoleech even harder than IPT.Enjoy your TL butplug fags.
fuck, there is a legit christian tracker i signed up on a while back, probably disabled there now
i selectively unblock websites (eg, i have youtube unblocked because adsense cpm is shit right now)
Yea they should ban you if you use ublock or ABP for the ultimate regular user cattle-prod to the nut-sack treatment.
Yea, they are lazy cunts but they'll recruit again , just like their whore sister site PTP.
I'm not a ratio cuck, I would prefer a buffer higher on tehc where I can at least download a bit more liberally. They don't exactly have much freeleech anon.
Also please stop bullying.
>I would prefer a buffer higher on tehc where I can at least
Ratiocuck detected again.Your gona' break my ratio-cuckdar,levels are just too high, pls stop! :/
>you're an idiot!
Glad you liked it mate. It's my go to 'it's cold out and I'm gettin /cosy/' album.
Do you into Bonobo as well anon?
I do use adblock sempai. It was just too good of a b8 to pass on it.
Definitely not as detailed as PTP's.
Looks like I am getting like 50% more points than usual because main tracker is down now and moose is up. Kek
i might just kill myself
>come back to thread
>god i fucked up
>just people telling me what their goals were
i hope it works out for all of you, i feel like a lot of people are in the home stretch right now, just remember don't cut corners or you will get fucked over and best of luck!
I use to use avistaz a few years ago A LOT, I didn't even really know it was a private tracker.
Just a site I could watch asian films and some korean in particular.
The switched their site and before I could read the rules about linking accounts it was too late for me and I lost all of my ratio. Short story short: Recommend me some korean films if you know some and some kdrama anon, pls.
If you haven't seen ...ing and don't mind some funny romance watch it. As well as The Taste of Tea-isn't romantic but a great movie.
I wanted to download this book from MAM
Franz Kafka - The Complete Stories of Franz Kafka'
But when I tried to download the torrent I got this :
" You are not allowed to download this torrent - because it is a VIP torrent, and you are not VIP at this time."
The book is available on #bookz but still it seems that many books are VIP there
What do /ptg/
I had a few movies, crosseeding them, I deleted some, didn't noticed I wad disabled and when I found out, half of the movies I deleted in time but the mod asked how I made the BP and that it is suspicious and where were all the other movies at?! Banned and banned everywhere too, like what and BTN etc. :(
He asked me where I met my inviter and said I knew him on the forum as a very good user for years and he got banned cause you only send invites to ppls you know. :(
Get BP -get VIP
did you read anything else i wrote?
go on the irc, talk to people, tell them you dont have bp for VIP and someone will hook you up, it always happens, they are good folks (even if they are bit culty)
All my shit is gay af mind you but Just Friends was really good and im about to start Life is Beautiful, which i hear is a masterpiece. If you go on the ptg irc find "xxtakeshi" and PM me sometime if im on.
>I deleted some, didn't noticed I wad disabled and when I found out, half of the movies I deleted in time but the mod asked how I made the BP and that it is suspicious and where were all the other movies at
In English please?
>1.I deleted some movies.
2.I didn't noticed I was disabled
3.And when I found out I was disabled, half of the movies were deleted ,by me.
4.The mod asked how I made the BP and that it is suspicious since I couldn't show where were all the other movies I deleted.
Now you get it you dumb fuck, grammar nazi autismo?!
After my experience on different sites HDB is actually one of the best. No bullshit, all the relevant info up front.
Browsing on BTN is absolutely awful. The info you need is buried several pages deep and you have to open separate pages for each season. And BTN routinely hangs for 30 seconds which makes it even worse. It's a bad website design and badly made. Retarded children like it because it has shiny banners.
PTP is a bit better than BTN but still has many of the same problems. Useful info is buried too deep.
You're right. BTN is shit, regardless of stylesheet. HDB is good, but I don't like having to scroll through every screenshot to get to the info at the bottom of the torrent description, and I don't like the way that it 'groups' torrents just by listing them in the related torrents. Having them attached to the IMDB section would be good.
You better shut your mouth boy, I'm fixing to take your pyramid badge for negligence.
BTN is awful to browse, regardless of the site load. Especially the way torrents are laid out, I click the wrong one half the time. Then the information in the torrent is presented badly too.
It's a great tracker. The site itself needs a lot of work.
PTP looks good, and it's layout is very easy to use.
On HDB for TV shows if you click the banner it takes you to a nice page with expandable groups for each season. The torrents are named with the group name and use the standard HDB titles which give all the most important info up front.
For movies the "other copies of this film" section works perfectly fine.
it's snappy as fuck though. seriously, it feels like you could open hdb, search for what you want, look and compare what's available, and download the best one, in the same time it would take to just open ptp, and it's probably true in the case of btn. and for this purpose, the hdb design is just fine.
for other things, like advanced searches, looking up collages, director/actor pages, etc, ptp blows it away.
what's the current "what.cd" for movies and/or tv?
pic related: my what.cd stats
Yeah PTP is best for browsing based on metadata, that is true.
However I prefer the simplicity of HDB. You can browse directors or actors off site and then search whatever films interest you on HDB.
Do one thing and do it well. HDB follows that philosophy and is excellent. Their staff seem more experienced and professional than any other site. Other sites are made by Jr. Devs in school and HDB is made by old bearded unix wizards.
some dns problems apparently, they renewed the domain but their registrar fucked up or something. you can add18.104.22.168 awesome-hd.netto your hosts file if you care enough
he probably hasn't responded yet though :^)
>stuck inside due to this blizzard
shit sucks yo
We get so much snow, you can only see the rooftop and you tropical niggers pussy out over some flakes.
You make me SICK!!
>tfw shoveling snow with sanitation department for $20 an hour
>tfw where shoveling snow like 4 blocks away from my house so I was able to come back to my house on my lunch break and shitpost and drink tea
That sounds like everyone just ended up not giving a fuck but that shit is not classy. I guess it saves you time then because then you would just choose which one would have the filesize that you are comfortable with.
not required on AB either.
You get bonus points for going along and uploading screenshots (up to 20 or 25 screenshots per torrent I think)
Sucks for the things that dont have screenshots, but its a quick way to make a lot of bonus points for doing almost no real work.
I think that, to be honest, not many people actually compare screens. It's only really us top austists, and the other encoder austists that bother. For example, look how many people settle for the scene bluray releases because they're first, and don't upgrade to the p2p internals.
The area I live in normally has a yearly snowfall of around 10 inches spread throughout 3-5 snow storms.
This ONE storm was around 32 inches, and up to 40 inches in some areas.
This area just doesn't have the equipment, man power, or salt to deal with the accumulation.
Sorry if that makes us "pussies" but when you live in an area with over 5000 people per square mile and almost no snow removal equipment, things get shut down.
It really should be required for AB, seriously man. Or at least encouraged more. I understand that the yen is incentive to upload screenshots but you reach a point where downloading freeleech and just using the site will get you more yen.
I use to upload screenshots for yen and then I quit though I will say I do plan to upload screenshots on what I've downloaded that don't have them.
Kind of a bummer they aren't required but I guess the uploader's feelings would be - hey I did the work, let someone else do it.
For those wondering about this essay, I type fairly fast.
Oh I agree it should be more encouraged, or even required for new torrents.
Maybe make it a 1,000 or 2,000 yen bonus for uploading at least 10 screenshots along with the torrent. That way more things will have screenshots from the get go.
>I only download movies which are 1080p
>I'm viewing it on a 720p laptop
I guess your right. To be honest as well, I use to sometimes compare and do sometimes still compare even the same encode on my HDtv, little hdtv, laptop, and then if I ended up burning a film for someone I would compare the colors.
So yeah. I guess it's kind of autistic but come on. I NEED TO KNOW.
>We have snowplowing trains in Siberia
and we barely have normal snow plows because it doesn't snow here.
You expect it and prepare for it.
Also, been drinking this 1.75L of Vodka since friday afternoon.
Their site is badly coded trash. It hangs while running some process in the background. It happens constantly.
Their staff are incompetent morons. That's why they lost data a bit ago from not making backups.
Yes, I think that would be a neat idea. There could be a few requirements like at least one screenshot with subtitles if available.
I'm into Anime but not exactly 'weeb' and I often downoad the torrent where the uploader actually has some comments on it. To me it shows that he gives a shit and then I download that one.
Sure let me bring my 70' 4K TV with me while I'm out of home.
I download 720p stuff because I have a 720p laptop. It's the friend who downloads 1080p YIFY.
I have to admit their 1080p stuff downscales well, almost had me fooled.
My comparisons have always just been on my pc, with identical frame screenshots. Most have been fairly conclusive, but then again I've never compared slightly different bluray editions or anything.
I try to be less autistic though, because it's largely irrelevant for me most of the time. My tv isn't good enough for me to be noticing much of a difference. I'm happy with scene most of the time for airing tv.
They don't know any better but desu that use to be me. Except I wouldn't say I only download 1080p.
I always noticed that the file sizes of Yify was a bit suspect and that they did not look the correct resolution.
No, video did not look fine on laptop either.
I did some research and the truth was revealed and I deleted all the yify I had.
The way oppaitime has start doing it is pretty neat.
Torrents with at least 4 screenshots earn 30% more BP, so even if the uploader does add them, it incentivizes anyone else who ends up in the swarm to do it as well, since everyone benefits.
>Uploaders are lazy enough as it is.
which is why very few trackers require screenshots. It's hard enough to get people to upload the way it is. Requiring screenshots is a good way to get even fewer uploads.
I'm still waiting to get into brokenstones. I need to have been a member of my current private tracker for a minimum of 6 months before I'm even considered for an invite. I've been in animebytes for almost 5 months now, and I have a single hit and run because I made a dumb mistake. I'm assuming I'll have to pay that off before anyone would dare invite me :/
Yeah, that's the kind of comparisons I do as well. And I try to be less autist as well.
That is actually a very neat idea but is the extra BP for all anons seeding or just the person that uploaded the screenshots.
That's a great idea desu. Though for porn I usually just need to use the cover image or actress when it comes to jav, they are too creative/artsty with their photography sometimes.
better to have an incentive than no incentive.
Currently AB has no incentive (besides the normal screenshot bonus points) for uploading screenshots with a torrent. So almost no one does.
At least if there were a 1000-2000 yen bonus for including some screen shots then SOME people would go through the effort and SOME of the torrents would have screenshots.
As it stands now basically nothing gets screenshots unless someone comes through and does it for the bonus points later.
Oppaitime has more than tripled the amount of screenshots on the site since they added the incentive. Seems like it's working to me.
The bonus is for everyone seeding the torrent.
>At least if there were a 1000-2000 yen bonus for including some screen shots then SOME people would go through the effort and SOME of the torrents would have screenshots
I very much doubt that would happen.
>meet Muslim women
GOP HELP US
SOMEONE CALL BILL O'REILLY
I found obscure anime titles and realized that a lot of my favorite games had anime spin-offs, so they were legal to post. I hear official game guides are an easy way to garner those needed uploads.
>people just won't upload.
Some may complain but I don't think they would just give up. Get Real.
>Screenshots are required and I don't want to upload screens so I'm never uploading.
Consistent uploaders would probably just set up a script to make the screenshots and it really wouldn't be a big deal but I know you haven't thought your comment through and are just being lazy.
The only one I can think of is emp, and the only reason it works for them is because their userbase is fucking enormous.
If you don't think there wouldn't be a huge amount of casual uploaders who would stop uploading, you're delusional.
I think all the trackers should up their requirements.
Books should have covers, films should have screens, Albums should at least have album art.
it's not much to ask for, we are supposed to be better then public trackers after all.
>huge amount of casual uploaders who would stop uploading
If a tracker imposed that rule I'm pretty sure that 'casual uploaders' would not be missed or required. There will always be someone willing and able to be replaced.
Just like when you get fired from a job, your company will not miss you, they can just hire someone else an they can do this neat thing they sometimes do which is recruit and any top tracker wouldn't struggle.
>If you don't think there wouldn't be a huge amount of casual uploaders who would stop uploading, you're delusional.
I don't care abut them. Make them mandatory. At any rate new potentail uploader will know that's the default behavior and I'd rather gain those uploaders than casual ones who just upload any random shit in any state.
Interesting... I'm kinda hesitant about permaseeding, as I feel like I'm essentially signing a contract that forces me to seed this 60gb cluster of media for the rest of eternity...
The story is: I downloaded yu yu hakusho, and it turned out the version I downloaded looked like shit, despite it being a "1080p" encoding. I removed it and downloaded the bigger, 100GB version without really thinking. By the time I realized what I'd done, I had a hit and run (like, a day or two later).
Yes, I know I'm retarded. I'm actually kinda ashamed to tell the story, because it seems like such a dunce move in hindsight.
Don't worry anon. You will get in just fine, just look at the thread and there was some whiny ass entitled bitch complaining and the recruiter responded very maturely and I think he may have even mentioned even overlooking how long you have been a member of AB before receiving an invite.
Please check out the invite thread again and also lurk more, anon, lurk more.
Thanks for all the advice, guys! I've been on what for just over a month and I've already made power user.
Tracker heaven, here I come!
If they have everything that is not longer uploaded by casual uploaders. I guess you are assuming if casual uploaders stopped uploading they would all stop their torrents seeding/delete their accounts and leave the tracker?
I'm sorry, I'm not going to keep up with your assumptions and will just stop replying. This is getting out of hand.
Is that a dude, I love anime an shit but unless this is bait what the fuck. shitty ass art, nigga.
>I guess you are assuming if casual uploaders stopped uploading they would all stop their torrents seeding/delete their accounts and leave the tracker?
casual uploading is very easy, so everyone that has the file can do it
If more requirements are put in place, less people overall can upload. In some cases, we may miss out on a movie.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't do much more to disincentivize the trash uploads / reward the better ones.
>If more requirements are put in place, less people overall can upload. In some cases, we may miss out on a movie.
"less people overall WILL upload."
they still could, they just wouldn't
but there is point to be made that raising the bar could impede uploads if there are more 'casual' uploaders who just thinks its not worth the effort
oh, shit. I actually remember seeing an ad on a newtype dvd years ago for this show. Thank you, I'm going to download now off AB
And i've never watched attack on titan but my friends have.
For you consideration I've watched and enjoyed: Witch Hunter Robin, Another, Shiki, Dusk Maiden Amnesia, and Hellsing though someone told me I was watching the shit version and of course Evangelion and Rei is #1 girl.
>we may miss out on a movie
By forcing the upload of torrents to transcend user classes PTP and WCD are in turn doing a massive disservice to the quality of content available. It has become diluted by absolute garbage (free bandcamp shit, low grade Bollywood shit etc). If the user class requirements instead were based on volume of data then it would encourage only high quality content being uploaded as you now have incentive to upload stuff that people will actually grab. PTP and WCD is riddled with absolute garbage because of this utter failure.
PTP, Empornium & WCD (if I feel like it).
I hope Empornium has reasonable requirements on Thursday. WCD I can get invited to in 2 weeks. I still have to wait 4 months for PTP (through Animebytes).
I just got into private trackers 2 months ago and I'm already in like a dozen thanks to these threads.
I'm curious about the Korean porn on Sinderella, but I probably won't get into that and I'm not even sure I really want to. I can get JAV elsewhere.
I have a seedbox though, I'm not worried that much.
Assuming you're talking about getting Torrent Master on What, anyway. I got 200 gb from the last sitewide freeleech and I downloaded a gross amount of stuff during. I need around the same amount to get there as well as ~100 more uploads.
You are talking a lot of shit. What high quality content is ptp and what.cd missing exactly?
How would making it based on volume data not benefit the seedboxfags on what.cd even more?
Not my fault trackers go down all the time and I need to have backups
Not my fault is some trackers have bullshit rules like "don't upload our stuff anywhere else!!1"
Not my fault is some encodes are specifically found on specific trackers
Not my fault that you need to play trackers like RPGs, using each one as stepping stones before getting into a better one with more/exclusive content
So yes by some retard's vague definition I could be considered a fucking collector, but of course blame me for the way private trackers works
