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 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"
Just wow at the OP image but alas let's do our best to make this a good thread.
Are there anything you guys set up immediate after getting a seedbox? I'm trying to set up Plex tomorrow hopefully I get it all working.
Off topic to torrenting but related to piracy, is there any interest in a Gentoomen Library "expansion pack"? I don't have much to do tomorrow because of all this snow (classes are cancelled) and I'd use the day on making an updated version of it. It pissed me off enough that the most Python book is from 2011 (so not Python 3, obviously), but there aren't even any HTML books from the current decade. Kinda pisses me off.
If someone makes a request for Maury on IPT I will contribute all my points to it. I lost my request privileges (beastality isn't welcome anymore). Please anon. I need my Maury and it's not on BTN.
>tfw whatmp3 fucked me earlier and skipped 3 tracks for the 320 transcode
The V0 came out fine though from the same command, I redid the 320 using the same command later and it worked too. So fucking confused.
And now I have a 1 week warning.
I use whatmp3 instead of whatbetter for the very reason that I like to check shit a bit and make sure it's all good and then submit it by hand. However I only ever check the 320 OR the V0 for missing tracks. I guess this time I checked the V0 and got warned on a 50/50 probability because I would have fixed it had I noticed the 320 was broken.
Get something that only does ereading imo. Like a cheap kindle or some shit
Jack of all trades master of none.etc
No I let it upload for me but just sat there for a few hours watching every upload it did and never had to stop it because the all looked perfect
>No I let it upload for me but just sat there for a few hours watching every upload it did and never had to stop it because the all looked perfect
The problem is rarely with the actual script. This is the only time other than when a file contained a $ -which the script doesn't escape unfortunately- that this has happened. The real thing to be on quality control watch for is that the original uploader of the flac could have fucked up, and that will cause your shit to fuck up, but you won't notice unless you check.
was looking at kindle, seems like a great budget option but it doesn't support epub? which is pretty ridiculous, unless epub > azw3 conversion comes out acceptable
heard good things about kobo h2o as far as being relatively "open" and customizable goes and the screen size seems above average for the price but i've heard bad things about its general performance and build quality
definitely don't want a tablet to get eye strain reading on, just looking for something for under $200 with an epaper display if anyone has further input on that
a dedicated device, i don't have a smartphone or a tablet or anything
I've been having a growing interest in comics but neglected to join 312 pages because I have no idea how strict the rules are.
Is it easy to maintain ratio? Is there a bonus points system? Does it have a punishing economy like Bib/WCD?
I've been trying to get my comics from Bib/public trackers.
Does it have complete collections that are easy accessible without fucking up my ratio? Like first edition all the way to present day.
I messaged mcadams on comfy and whatcuck asking for him to send me a screenshot of Maury on btn. He never replied. Can anon please delivar and I promise to stop asking.
I want to know what formats are available before I go as far as making another account on ipt and requesting it. Thanks f.am
I love you mates. I can't believe I'm about to dip into curry.
>tfw not even on freshon or mtv
If I'm going into irc, shouldn't I just got on freshon irc and post proofs?
Also, I was under the impression that ipt=torrent leech, both own by zek. Is that not true? If Maury is seeded on freshon torrentsrmine or torrent leech I will join them
I care because a redneck that was expelled from my high school is apparently on an episode that aired three years ago. I've been searching profusely to see if he's the father or not.
I thought torrent leech was run by ipt/same shit
There are three dead Maury torrents on torrentsrmine, thanks though. (I have no idea why the fuck you know that tracker exists). Any chance they're on freshon? Or just screenshot of what's on btn so I can request it or at least kno what to search btdigg for. Thanks senpaitachi
there's absolutely nothing on BTN for Maury.
>I thought torrent leech was run by ipt/same shit
No. Inform yourself with this image you uneducated nigger.
>There is absolutely no need for language like that here.
Shut up, nigger. This is a /pol/-friendly general. We say nigger here and if you can't take it, go read /r/trackers instead.
>I obviously have no issue with it, I just don't think it belongs in /ptg/.
This. You make this general look like a place for edgy 15 year olds.
>thinks "nigger" doesn't belong in /ptg/
>but posts pictures of waifus whenever he posts, which is basically avataring and waifuism which belongs on /tv/ or /r9k/
Seriously, fuck off.
Why are you always talking about reddit?
I've been following your shitposting patterns here for a while now and at least 50% of your posts are concerned with reddit.
I'm not having a crack, I'm just interested. Did they not like you there?
McAdams, we all come from reddit. I post on /r/trackers to this day. I come here so I can say whatever I want, and that's what makes /ptg/ comfy, not your rule-mongering.
Nigger is a fine word for /ptg/, just like curry. They are both people we keep out of private trackers whenever possible.
>McAdams, we all come from reddit.
Well for me personally this isn't true, I've never used reddit as I don't like the way posts are rearranged according to herd mentality everything's always deleted or hidden.
That's fine that you post on reddit, a lot of would prefer that you keep your reddit dramas to yourself though. All it does is perpetuate shitposting as it has right now and honestly, your edginess gives away your newfag reddit origins.
Just relax, post about trackers, have a nice discussion. No reason to harsh up the vibes here just because reddit pisses you off.
I came from Tumblr and went to /a/ for about 1 and a half years then discovered /ptg/ on /g/ after trawling through /mu/, /a/, /ic/, /lit/ and /t/ and finding no permanent tracker threads.
Reddit doesn't piss me off, McAdams. I post there and 4chan.
People who want to censor the word "nigger" however can stay on reddit if it offends them or they can't see it without getting triggered.
I see you tried to optimize a png and struggled a little. Let me help you out and offer you a proper /comfy/ sized png.
Shots definitely fired ;^)
>People who want to censor the word "nigger" however can stay on reddit
No one wants to "censor the word 'nigger'"
We just dont want you niggering up /ptg/ like some edgy 15 year old faggot. This isn't /pol/, it just shits up the thread for no reason.
If you have a legitimate reason to use the word nigger, by all means use it, but just throwing out niggers because you feel like being edgy today is just retarded.
You are derailing this thread way more than I am with your womanish objections just because I threw out the word "nigger" a few times.
If you had any sense, you would just drop it and not give a fuck if I say "nigger" instead of turning this thread into a discussion about use of the word instead of a tracker thread.
Now, can you just drop it so we can discuss trackers, sweetheart?
no maury on TorrentsRMine mate, any on freshon?
Shit boggles my mind man
SInce everything comes like this
And then I have to rename it to
>Star Trek The Original Series
and then manually rename the files to match the seasons.
The fuck? I've only had like 5 cases ever where an originally named release failed in Kodi to get auto filtered. In those cases I just force it to research and type in the name normally and it works any way.
message him on his bandcamp email although i don't ever remember him wanting hdb, i just thought it was funny how he thought all of them were his friends or something and they all just said fuck him when it came to getting on btn lel typical ptg mindset
>tfw you fall asleep awkward and now your neck and arm feel like you were in a car crash
I don't have any plugins for rendering... Only plugins I have are Watchdog, Missing Movies and everything that came with Aeon MQ6 - which I only notably use Artwork Organiser manually from for those sweet main menu arts.
Watchdog auto checks a set of sources for new shit. So if I dump a movie into the movie folder on my NAS it appears on my TV in ~4s. It seems to do is using a directory cache too so no hard disk rape I believe.
Missing Movies you run manually and it'll check all your sources for media files that exist but aren't in your Kodi library. Super useful for the rare situation anon was talking about earlier where a movie isn't automatically worked out and added because it doesn't know what it is. So you run that and it'll list all the missing ones then go down one by one and force a search with custom title to add them to the library.
I remember one guy last thread taunting us with a script that would passively auto-dl the new GPs. Was he lying? Is it possible? I just don't understand why they don't announce GPs.
No. I have that script but wasn't anon. It's not flawless because it checks for new GPs every 5 minutes so if you refresh just before it appears and everyone else doesn't you miss the race unless the initial seeders are slow.
It's not NECESSARY though, just F5 a bit each day and you might luck out a couple of times, which will give plenty of buffer, and also means you won't fuck your avg seed time by downloading more than you can hold long term.
I still buy DVDs tbqh
Alot of shit isn't on bluray yet.
I find enormously sad that MST3k episodes will never see blu-ray release, even though they're entirely SD. Actually, I'd love to find out if the DVDs are in progressive or interlaced natively....
I just don't see the point in buying sometimes inferior and always physical media.
By sometimes inferior I don't mean just internal fixes but that some region releases suck massive dick compared to others and I don't see why I should buy a shit one.
I'm not complaining that the show itself is SD, just that it won't see blu-ray release. If for no other reason, they could release an entire 4-episode pack on a single disc, including extras.
Someone put some "high quality" up-to-date dvd rips out on TPB recently, but the quality seems off to me, like he used a bad de-interlace or used one when it wasn't needed. Someone in /ptg/ said there was a tracker with DVDRs as well, but I can't be arsed to climb just for that.
> There are people who aren't downloading all the files on a torrent to misrepresent the actual numbers of leechers and trap people into them.
Why is this allowed ?
I must admit I got trapped once. Never again. Then again, why is it allowed ? I want to be a bad boy and report them for tricking people.
Because I'm not buffer-poor to actually count every single bytes I download.
My issue is that people are deceiving other OR the torrents aren't properly bundled. Why would samples and nfo be put in them in the first place ? I mean, I can get it for the nfo, but a sample ? This isn't a topsite.
Am I wrong ?
I... I'm sorry if I triggered you, Anon-kun. I'm not a tech specialist. Please no bully.
It doesn't work that way. Whoever uses it will get a ban. IP adresses anon. IP addresses.
I'm not a weeb but if you give me the full name I'll check HDB and BTN for you.
Maybe someone from M-Team or U2 will ocme to your rescue.
this is what's on BTN. Probably the same or less than AB.
would someone actually invite me? all i have is AB, which is pretty easy. how strict are they for ratio?
>mfw avatarfags/tripfags and the most undeserving people get invites over people with no connections/friends working hard and contributing a lot
I guess it works the same as with real life jobs.
I just wish someone would hug me once in a while and tell me everything is gonna be okay.
I'm sorry man ;_;
What trackers are you on? How did you get there? where are you going?
Tell us your story.
You don't want to lad. They leave, they break your heart, they make you hurt forever.
I just keep collecting the ebin internet RPG good boy points to make the pain go away
Well no one is going to download it, though they have from me... That's not the point though. Unless you're encoding or making remuxes there's nothing you can really offer AHD so uploading there is almost a meme. Just put up some scene shit senpai.
>upload /tv/ shows!
>I'll give 50,000 points for a nice p2p encode of a season (first in the series).
>25,000 for following seasons.
Nice offer but it still requires you to source it, and if you're in BTN you probably don't need user classes on AHD any more. Either that or you have discs locally, problem with that is most of us have shit internet so putting up a TV show you ripped yourself is practically a token gesture, especially in HD. It's going to take SO long to upload.
There should be a 1-click program/script that would encode anything to the highest quality standards automatically.
I'm too much of a lazy piece of shit to research that shit, although I do have a pretty powerful PC and I'm not using at 100%, open 24/7 like a server.
>There should be a 1-click program/script that would encode anything to the highest quality standards automatically.
>Unless you're encoding or making remuxes there's nothing you can really offer AHD so uploading there is almost a meme
Perhaps, but I lurk the request section sometimes because AHD was my only movie tracker once and I remember those feels well I guess
That's a pretty defeatist attitude mayn, it doesn't make any sense either. If uploading things is never worth it why would we have any content at all?
Also, I/we give insane points for user releases. like 100k+ a season. Check the thread.
That completely defeats the point familam. It's about removing data that humans can't see. You need a human to be the judge of that and select settings accordingly.
>Anon was assuming.
I definitely was assuming. Or speculating. I did put a question mark there to make sure that was implied.
Well they should really make it more simple and less autistic, instead of reading 100 page texts in a hundred threads spread on 4-5 movie trackers until you get a small idea on how to even begin.
>I definitely was assuming. Or speculating. I did put a question mark there to make sure that was implied.
Alzhy, of all the people you should know better, senpai.
>That's a pretty defeatist attitude mayn, it doesn't make any sense either. If uploading things is never worth it why would we have any content at all?
It'd be different if it was a movie, OR you had a fast connection. But if you're going to rip and upload a season of a TV show in HD you're looking at 25GB+ per season which is really not fun on a 1mbit uplink. It ruins the uploaders net for like 2 weeks and anyone that actually wants it is going to suffer huge frustration. Unless you want to trickle it to a seedbox first I wouldn't recommend it desu.
>What is so special about PTP and the movie trackers? How different are they from ~10GB SPARKS 1080p releases you find on KAT/RARBG?
People like this actually browse /ptg/....
Please get out of here, retard.
They am to be visually identical (transparent) or better (repaired flaws) than the source.
P2P Encode (DON):
Notice that the scene encode completely destroys the grain while creating banding and macroblocking.
>What does PTP have that RARBG doesn't?
Literally thousands more movies. RARBG has maybe 75% of what PTP has.
However, if you are a retard that watches Transformers, this won't matter to you.
I have a giant Leaseweb server.
4x3TB HDD's in software RAID 5
Some decent Xeon cpu.
49 euro a month. ($53 americuck dollars I think?)
I recommend that if you can find one. Otherwise Whatbox is really comfy and reliable. They also massively undersell what they actually give you.
On there Flex NL 150mbit plan I never got less than 440mbit.
You asked a question, I answered it honestly. I am shamelessly autistic about video quality yes. I fucking love films and I like them to look good.
well the largest download on RARBG is: The.Martian.2015.1080p.BluRay.REMUX.AVC.DTS-HD.MA.7.1-RARBG which is 40GB.
But seriously what is the point in downloading these huge ass releases
Which tracker deserves to be DDOS'd back to the stone age, /ptg/?
OK, how about this?
Which tracker, other than IPT and the other trackers that Zek owns, deserves to be DDOS'd back to the stone age?
Wew lads these are fighting words and obvious bait. Try not to derail a nice thread.
By the way guys I just Begin Again (2013 - EbP encode) and it was great if you're looking for a comfy feel good and like music.
Keira is a top tier qt.
Well if it can't if it doesn't have an actual release name, no.
I actually preferred Once by the same director before he went to Hollywood.
Much better songs and chemistry, set in Dublin and many good feels to be had. I think the actress is even more of a qt since she seems so genuine.
This scene gives me the chills every time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6slEoCqDD8
There should be a good encode out hopefully
Oh well, at least hedoes what he likes.
I preferred Once as well, but don't worry about a good encode just grab any 720p. The source isn't worth it at all and you're there for the soundtrack anyway
What is the invite channel? I just joined #invites but I'm the only guy there. Also joined the other channel #announce with 8 users.
I don't know why they are so restrictive. Do they recruit from WCD PU?
I don't have a clue lad, I was just relaying information to you from a thread about it on HDBits but you could always try /list.
Goodnight guys, thanks for the comfy thread.
Be nice to each other and don't wageslave too hard if that's your thing.
>that moment when you realize mcadams new waifu isn't eva, it's ewan.
Which one do I download?
I only download Freeleech, I have never seen FLCL before, planning on watching the dub.
>he doesn't appreciate feet
I'm not saying fuck them senpai, but how can you not like how they look.
Jesus Christ mcadams. You have the worst taste in music I have seen on whatcuck yet. I just downloaded a few of your uploads to test out a few transcoding programs (making sure I had the same result when I used the same flac as source). What the actual fuck mate? You listen to nasheed x Mariah Carey dipped in lady gaga. You must be deaf
>People who want to censor the word "nigger" however can stay on reddit
I deserve to say nigger! Can't take that right away from me!
