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

Various tracker IRCs and sites open for signup
Use >>>/g/ptg as a link to find the /ptg/ thread.
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"
They do bluray rips too
when the fuck is ahd coming back???
>tfw grubhub is ready but have to download from IPT because dont want to hurt ratio on ptp.
I just got banned from OT for naming a torrent the wrong way. I went into IRC to contest it but the guy named azatooth told me to fuck off.
Is there other trackers that specialize in 2d cartoon porn with admins that don't rage at small autistic things?
Have you seen some of the top episodes lists those people pump out. Maximum pleb. Not that I trust Carter at this point. I just want them to be reasonably good.
>oops sorry i forgot a pivotal detail that i only just remembered that invalidates your points.
fuck off, someone got WARNED for making an abortion of a title but no-one was banned.
Is the movie Dope good? Should I snatch that shit
where do you find quality people to invite? Every person I invite always seems to be shit.
this desu. unless you know they are active on other trackers, certainly not a real life friend ever.
I don't have real life friends but I hear they are shit to invite to trackers.
I invited a couple friends I knew for 3+ years and they both got disabled for not being active. The only person you can trust, is yourself. But inviting yourself again would get you banned so there's that.
Actually I have invited some to jpop, but I gave them shit loads of points so they can't fuck up their ratio.
I have invites on AB and TehC, but I have never used them (Too scare to use them)
>tfw have over 3tb of various music
>at least 50% of it isn't on wcd
>too lazy to actually upload anything
>could probably get flac master
Someone posted this in last thread to check the DNS status of trackers.
What is this exactly?
>too dumb to just hit the autofill button.
>too dumb to just put only the title name in the title and nothing else
>too dumb to just look at how others are naming their uploads
>too dumb to follow simple directions
>im not autistic! they are!
better beg for an invite to AB cause you sure as shit aint passing that application, bud :^)
X-files-bro, what is a good list to follow for essential episodes to watch of xfiles before the new season? I've never watched any I'm afraid and don't know which of the thousand lists on the web to trust.
Good morning guys!
Looks like the thread held together a bit better than usual, but if you'd like to see interesting psychology have a read through the last thread and the start of this one and look for patterns you'll notice that 90% of the shitposting is actually just one person samefagging over and over again. It wouldn't surprise me if it's the OP of this thread forcing this stupid
>ayylmao ratiocucks meme
Just don't reply shitposters and they leave eventually.
Could someone post a mediainfo of a bluray encode so I can have a look? I'm not on MTV.
What happened to the two anons trying to upload from IPT to PTP last night? Are they kill?
95% of the time WEB-DL is better unless you count the giant DIMENSION rips.
We can have a comfy thread if you like, be the /ptg/ you'd want to read.
Drizzy specifically has been off the DNU list for a long time. Most of the old albums are reported and deleted with warnings handed out because they're lossy masters (which should be staff approved) or they subjectively fall under the new Deus Ex Abitrary Bandcamp Spam rule they implemented recently to cover that.
Well the quickest way to get that count up is to upload but I believe technically anything over 100MB works?
Anyway, my current recommendations are Billy & Billie, You're The Worst, Wonderfalls, The Fall and Nathan For You, as well as these
Soon brother, the fire rises.
I don't have my Scullys to hand but I think you might be referring to me?
It's a really difficult question to answer anyway. This reddit list is good and comprehensive but obviously long due to those qualities:
If you watched all these you would be well up to speed and not missing out much.
If you want a slightly more personal opinion, The X-Files benefits from a long gestation period, and trying to binge so many episodes just to get to up to speed for the new series is probably a recipe for disaster. Season 1-5+movie are the best the series has to offer, and the new series will undoubtedly not live up to them. I'd recommend watching them (in full (experience the joy of the bad episodes) or the contracted list if you're pushed for time), and appreciating them. You're literally missing out on the best stuff if you half watch/rush your way through the early stuff just to be informed for the reboot.
Hope that helped a bit :^) Sorry if it's not exactly what you're after. Happy to review some lists if you're trying to decide between a particular couple though!
>You're literally missing out on the best stuff if you half watch/rush your way through the early stuff just to be informed for the reboot.
I agree. I watched season 1 slowly on my TV and loved it but watched Season 2 passively on my laptop while doing various other things and I regret it, I don't even remember any of it and I think I'll have to rewatch it all
Aww man I used to love that show
Why is rural Britain toppest place and why don't I live there?
I just grabbed this
Just write the name of the release and copy paste the x264 settings section here senpai, it's only a few lines.
Thanks guys I'll grab it now. I also loved Hinterland if anyone hasn't seen it. CtrlHD best encode.

Yeah I was fucking annoyed when I realised you werent on HDB at the time and was going to invite you but you got there fucking two days later on your own.
Ah, ok. I hope this is what you want, yo.

Yep, thanks for that. Great advice and you might have just ensured a new fan watches the show with full meaning rather than haste. I'm grabbing the don encode to s01 as we speak. Bluray source looks pretty fantastic.
>the city of Tom Brady
>getting cucked by both Manning brothers
Do you encode for yourself? Good to know because I'm just getting into learning about encodes and such and joined MTV a bit ago. I guess I will grab DRACULA whenever it's available.
found two movies in my collection that aren't on ptp
>It's a drizzy talks about handegg or some shit episode
>tfw only 54 days average seed time
>tfw can't meme with you
I've made a few decent SD encodes for PTP but I haven't uploaded them because I can do better. I mostly learned just by autistically comparing every release of every movie I downloaded and annoying F00D with stupid questions
The recruit from A*M
wew upload them laddy, PU is where it's at
I am actually yeah
Cheers f'am, it's been a treat there so far.
Nah, not like that. I had the requirements when the recruitment thread popped up. I caught a bit of luck with the timing!
You're welcome, anon. I think it hits its stride pretty quickly so if you enjoy S01E01 then you'll probably know you're onto a winner.
I use Windows for work and my desktop and Linux for my laptop and torrentbox.
I haven't had to join any new trackers in over a year now. Ever since I joined HDBits I really haven't needed to climb the ladder. I just enjoy /ptg/ more than /r/trackers so I'm here at least once a week.
I'm just hanging out here while getting hyped for X-Files.
Drizzy I betrayed you, I'm sorry.
>you making any new tunes
nah I haven't m8
>what are your tracker goals for 2016?
I honestly don't have any right now. I don't know if I'd consider it a goal but I want to download and read more stuff from MAM.
hdb-familia is growing too.
Last time I was in IRC I counted 13 regulars on HDB. Most are /pure/ too!
We are the bigBoy club now lads.
you're always welcome
>I want to download and read more stuff from MAM.
Are you on Bib? It's back.
REEEEEEEEELEASE THE TRACKER JRS
nah not really m8 but thanks.
I could've got on Bib, I went with MAM instead since back in the day everyone said it was easier to survive on with the bp system and what not. It's pretty comfy I guess.
I'm already in oppaitime, I want western stuff too.
Yeah, I was thinking I'd try to get on there, but I wasn't sure if it was easy to build ratio. I'll go for it, thanks.
Just talk about things you'd like to talk about senpai, we'll all have a discussion. The thread fall in to circlejerking retardation mostly because even the oldfriends that know their shit have nothing to say.
Are their any newfags lurking that want to speak up and ask a question?
Post buffer from bib freeleech/freeload
you really think so? my main impression is that aza has to use this rude veneer on everything he says as if he thinks hes impressing everyone by how much of a dick he is
what an odd couple eh
Had a box for about 6 months. Unlimited data so good to just chuck stuff on and forget. Not much downtime. Was surprisingly stable during the infamous wcd freelich. Ive still got it so it cant be that bad but ive had much better service from other providers for not a significant amount more coin
I had them for about three months. They're great for a really cheap box but I'd recommed whatbox NL for your money before feral. Even though their plans look slower they way undersell themselves. I constantly pulled 440mbit on their 150mbit plan for example.
Yea, I have no idea what to talk about now. Sometimes the threads get stale because there just isn't much happening on the trackers and not much to talk about. A natural progression of things, so people end up bullshitting a bit. Doesn't bother me much.
Going to watch some TV and have a time out.
You rank up on your trackers and eventually come across a recruitment thread at some point.
Are you high ranking on your movie/tv/maybe other trackers? Are you accounts 6+months old? HDB recruit periodically. The requirements aren't ridiculous and are achievable for most anons here.
>How do I get into HDBits (HDB)?
>For limited times they have been known to have invite threads on PTP, BTN, AHD, SDbits, CN, and various other "well known" movie/TV trackers. If you want to get into HDB your best chance is to max out the userclasses on those trackers. Any application offers or invite offers you see on forums are fake because HDB does not allow users to give invites on other trackers.
Well that's easy to answer. Just level up your cabal movie trackers. Seriously, that's all there is to it. They also like large seeding sizes and high average seed times.
Your other option is to become an internal encoder on any cabal site.
Yeah but, why though? Like I said, he seems okay to me.
I really don't think enforcing rules makes you a "socially autistic retard". That sounds like an insult someone throws out when they're mad that they got slapped on the wrist.
I will never beg for an invite, but I like to vent anonymously.
On trackers that have nothing to do with movies yes, but I'm active on PTP in a way not to ruin my ration. And I'm waiting on a new HDD to download more GPs.
There's no recruitment posts anywhere.
Useful info, thanks.
>s-sorry pyramid master, I'll delete the comment.
>expecting DAT BIRD to stand a chance against Cam Newton
>mfw Cam is going to be Cranking Dat Souljaboy all over the fucking Broncos
Ah, I just got on Feral and actually got the impression that whatbox wasn't that good. atm Feral is working ok for me so I'll probably use them like you did for at least 3 months, I actually need to buy HDD's so I'll be able to grab what I'm seeding on them now.
What providers anon. I joined a few days ago and it went down for some hours. Mcadams bro actually saved me yesterday and I got to watch my movie.
>get a takeaway
>immediately turn it right back over
>Arizona in charge of turnovers
I'm surprised you haven't just killed yourself already. All the other Cardfags are on life support.
I read that PM chain, and I don't see how he was autistic about anything.
He told the guy he fucked up, asked him why. The guy responded completely out of kind and told him to "get off his high horse", and that he copied what was on other torrents. Aza didn't even get mad at that point, and just told him that most torrents weren't like that.
And then he called Aza an asshole for no reason.
Really, how was this Aza being autistic?
lol no one gets buffer from freeload. the freeleech was awesome for it, but freeload is garbage. The only files you'd get buffer on are large files, which no sane person bothers seeding on Bib because no one ever fucking downloads them due to their tight-ass economy.
I don't get the celebration over what is essentially a neutral leech. even if you grab a bunch of big stuff to seed in the future, no one will ever download it for the aforementioned reason
If you're already seeding stuff you get buffer. So it's in your best interest to download the NatGeo/New Yorker packs because then during the next freeload you get all the buffer.
The only people who hate freeload are the ones who don't seed long term. And basically bib's staff are telling those people to fuck off because they don't want them.
It's RAID5with 8 disks, so 21 TB. Storage space isn't decreased by adding a RAID0 layer.
I would recommend RAID60 though, which would give you only 18 TB but it would me much, much more secure.
>If you're already seeding stuff you get buffer
But that's my point -- nobody is already seeding the big files that build buffer because no one downloads ever those files. And Bib's last freeleech was like 4 years ago -- what're the odds they're going to have another one before the end of the decade?
More power to you but I have no idea how you're pulling in 90 GB unless you have a metric fuckload of stuff seeing, much of it larger files.
Tell me this is real. Please tell me you niggers just got phished on fucking /ptg/.
>PTP - They get all the releases from other sites and they have a group of individuals that pick the best encode and make it a golden popcorn (freeleech). How could anything get better than that?
I can't make a new thread right now but
>around 60% of posters here chat shit - don't make any claims about sites based on "something you read here once"
And these ridiculously 9gag tier OP images
I just added 6 more TB to my HTPC and I need more Remuxes to replace some older archived movies. IPT has been good to me but some older releases/packs aren't being seeded anymore. I could really use a new tracker to feed my Remux addiction
>IPT has been good to me but some older releases/packs aren't being seeded anymore. I could really use a new tracker to feed my Remux addiction
Just go for AHD/PTP/HDB you fucking ape.
I know it's incredible I don't know this, but...
Who the fuck are azaroth and spaghetti? I take it they're staff or something at some tracker, and one (or both of them) had something to do with the Bib DDOS, but that's about all I've been able to learn given the signal to noise ratio in some of these threads
And this IRC channel you all keep referring to...what is it? What's happening? Who are you all? Where do we go when we die?
I want a bibliotik invite to determine whether it's in fact a superb book repository or just a bunch of self-important rule pedants sharing japanese cartoons in ridiculously inefficient file formats.
>a bunch of self-important rule pedants sharing
First bit correct. No japanese cartoon but books. Lotsa fucking cook books for some reason. Not many textbooks (but have general non fiction)
Actually there are a lot of japanese cartoons. And cookbooks.
I'm responsible for both.
I don't know because I'm not an interviewer (anyone elite or + can do it). Depends on people's availability. Set the client to notify you and just leave the IRC open whenever you feel confident that you can conduct the interview with no interruptions.
I got a warning on ptp for deleting torrents I uploaded. Checking the time of the report, I realized I deleted 30 more AFTER being warned for it. Am I at risk for a ban? I deleted them because I was the only seeder on most and I got paranoid after smoking weed for the first time last night. I can't go on irc because I don't have vpn
>I can't go on irc because I don't have vpn
How can I tell if I am a power user? I donated $20 back when I used it a lot and my account is 6 years old. My ratio is 0.90 because nobody was leeching my snatches and I didn't seed 0 people long enough to "pay off" that download.
