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.

First to mention Whatcucks
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
Last night anon posted what appeared to be shit that he deleted 30 torrents from ptp. I don't think he was lying. I literally went from like 2 of my seeding torrents being no longer active/deleted to 20. Last I checked was like last week. wtf anon. What kind of autism has gotten into you?
Why is deleting a torrent even allowed- it should require approval from staff.
anyone know if some of the sport trackers, particularly for mma, have some streaming stuff on their forums? been getting into ufc lately, but the way i've been watching isn't available anymore.
do you know a decent tracker for TV series ? BTN is out of reach atm for me and I don't know if MTV recruits or if they take applications. Is there anything else good ?
I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.
QUOTE:" *****PTP is no longer a candidate, please vote for an alternative tracker*****
Hello everyone, our last poll was to on if we should have an invite thread on MAM and our community voted yes. After this poll was concluded a discussion evolved as to which tracker should be our 5th and final recruitment thread for the time being.
We currently run recruitment threads at: TPS, MAM, WCD and HDB "

I failed the interview because they said a user already made an account with my username and they thought I was lying. The tracker is curry apparently so i didn't bother correcting that faggot and only told him he was obviously retarded.
You didn't bother correcting him an you just told him he was a retard.
If I were you I would have asked if there was a way that you could prove to him that it wasn't you or try to do something but I understand your an oyance.
Who know if I could ever on on BTN but I was able to find some sweet encodes of Hannibal/Penny Dreadful off MTV and I wouldn't call them curry.
They are relatively new and I think if you ask anyone who has been around and they would tell you unbiased that for being new they are doing a good job of establishing themselves.
I suggest you attempt to join again when the chance opens up for you again, it will be worth your time.
>mfw MTV got the webdl before BTN and HDB
Where were you when the balance of power began shifting?
Oh cool. Well that's not on HDB or BTN anymore. Did RARBG fuck up a straight itunes remux somehow?

Is the x-files comparable to roswell?
I watched both around the same time and maybe I needed to be younger or older to appreciate the x-files but could someone give me the jist of what about it everyone appreciates about it? It seems /ptg/ without a doubt loves it. I tried to watch it on netflix months ago but that letterbox and quality was just killing me.
I think it has been given a more respectful release though? I may have seen screens here. I mention roswell because the quality of that show is just wow but I think most shows around the time were about the same sort of quality of writing.
How is it that old mate goes to bed and this place immediately becomes a retarded mess?
I honestly don't understand how one person consistently makes that much of a difference to thread quality but I'm impressed.
U2 disabled their login page again and I didn't save my cookie.
Stupid goddamn chinks. They do the dumbest shit.
They even banned Transmission 2.84 for a while until they realized how moronic they were.
I was in your same position. I joined what a few weeks ago and have been lazy to become elite there but Tehc has a lot of movies and in my first few weeks I had to just download select older films that are seeder surge.
For you to begin to build buffer(so you can download more films) download the motw each week. which is posted 8am every sunday, they have posted it kinda late though like after 9am but definitely in the morning.
Uploading screenshots will also help you increase buffer as well.
I have a great job, a gf, and a car and after getting a seedbox, I feel so close to losing it all.
Don't get one for the first 3-6 months of your private tracker career. It really depends on your goals and needs anon. What are your needs? What do you want out of PT's?
I start school today, have two online classes that require I purchase two textbooks that total something like $300. Any tracker out there that's easy to join that offers digital format of most textbooks?
If anyone can get me an invite, I'll get you a steam giftcard or some shit.
I think HDB is one of the harder one's to get into but from what your saying. I don't know how desperate you are but if you are desperate.
Start sucking cock on /r/trackers/ptg/ anywhere else where there is a cock out and definitely get a seedbox. Oh, and suck cock even on multiple IRC's if you can and are a good actor.
I believe the guy with his hand up is suppose to be zyzz or aziz. Look him up brah, we are all going to make it brah.
I think he is trying to say you are from reddit and/or go to reddit to ask and/or you belong on reddit. Either way doesn't matter because that's a shitpost. So just ignore his response.
Can you afford to just rent the textbooks?
Alright, no worries it's on what.cd. I'll snatch it for you and upload it to mega. It might take a while, but stay here.
It's not the revised edition though, if that matters.
not this one, the one I need looks like pic related.
holy shit, I'm actually a member of what.cd man, I just didn't think they had textbooks on their site. Thanks so much man, I'll snatch it myself, don't want to fuck up your ratio.
Wow. What a thread, lol.
I'm happy you were able to find your book and wish you well anon. Can't imagine how tough it can be not being able to afford to have a few meals a day but at least what.cd had your back on that book.

Autism speaks loudly on ptp. The fuck is wrong with 720x404?
Link please. I cropped out black bar from source. Resized it for 16:9. I'm not making an ntsc dvd 720x476~~~~~~> 854x476. That's just retarded. Storage resolution is mighty fine, it's a fucking dvd for sake. You would download hd if you didn't care about size
Speak of which. Which handbrake autist encoded the 576p handjob of Spectre using crf 15.3?Fucking 5gb moron. That should be trumpable
>linking to handbrake
That shit is haram. Write your own script or gtfo. A quality SD encode is about maximizing quality while keeping the size down. If you want the semi letterboxed dvd, download it. 720x476 isn't anamorphically compatible afaik. personally I think sd is a waste of time when there are hd options.
Not him but idk shit about video encoding, wouldn't squeezing the image vertically in that first example produce a better quality output though? I'd presume some information would be lost with the other method, unless it's already on the DVD and is just reshaped by default for the purpose of DVD players.
YOU STOP USING BULLY WORDS ON /ptg/!!!
FUCK yo site nigga FUCK yo site!!
The X-Files, at this point is just an iconic piece of nineties pop-culture. It's also an important bit of television in the same vain as The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone. It was a very good episodic series which played liberally with it's format, tone, and story elements and (for the first 5/6 seasons) didn't have an overall drop in quality despite becoming almost formulaic.
It's also important as one of the first big 'fandoms' (I hate that word too). It was airing around the time of the rise in popularity of the internet, global communication and culture. It truly influenced our culture's perception of aliens, government conspiracy, and police procedural tv shows. In fact, most pieces of media with these elements still get measured up to X-Files and the believer-skeptic dynamic the leads play.
The new blurays look fantastic and DON's S06 has just been uploaded, so you've got plenty to be getting on with if you did want to watch. I haven't seen Roswell but I've heard mixed things about it. I may look into again, as you seem to be giving it a glowing review!
Also, anyone else following the new X-Files webdl fiasco:
>The Ooosh release WEB-DL might be a little late. He mentioned it in IRC on the weekend that he had some huge work thing to do but said he would get it done as soon as he can.
>A little miscommunication resulted in there being a DRACULA purchase of the show from iTunes too.
>Since he was too busy with work by the time there was an entry for s10e1 to leave such a comment at i thought i would, should anyone by wondering. The truth is out there; waiting an extra day or two won't make it go away
For what purpose? Sure, an internal encode may be worth waiting for but these are literal remuxes from itunes? Why deprive users for no reason?
What's the point in rebooting the X-Files if you need to have seen the last 9 seasons worth? Especially just for 6 episodes.
When 24 returned you didn't need to know the entire past show for it to be enjoyable.

Anon, it's 2015.
Are you seriously recommending paying for music as a means of not paying for music?
If you're going to spend money, why not just pay $20 once and buy an account with a 500gb buffer or $30 for 1TB. No monthly seedbox or vpn fees and certainly not purchasing music.
I don't use what as a means to 'not pay for music' and I also enjoy having physical media.
Downloading True Detective will never feel as good as holding a box set of it or looking at it in my very small collection of favorites.
I have a blu ray of Stoker-and I would download Stoker for the convenience of watching it on my PC or iPad or anything else that I wish to view it on.
I hope you can understand my 'mentality' after reading the above.
Personally, I don't see the problem here. Let's say you spend $20 on a request to get 20GB (and generally, you'll do much better than that) That $20 enables you to download ~60 FLAC albums (at ~330mb each) or ~240 albums in V0. That's a ridiculous amount of music for $20 and at the same time you're increasing your seeding size making it unlikely you'll need to fill a request is the future.
Requests are absolutely worth it as a new user if you can afford to fill a few big ones.
Personally I think HDBits is the only real BTN alternative but I think he's fair in avoiding saying that given it's quite difficult to ger in to.
good god i fucking hate that thread that says you need to wait 2 days for a fucking slow retard to upload first on a very awaited and anticipated series, then fucking gets mad someone stole his precious upload points on a ratioless tracker. he should remove his fucking name from the thread.
1. get an IRC client
2. Connect to oppaiti.me
3. join #oppaiti.me-invites
4. Ask for Black Cats invite
They might ask you for ratio proofs, just say that you are a new user and promise to hnr your torrents. Good luck
It should be first come, first served. You've hardly saved anyone money, you've just wasted peoples time.
If they need to do this thread thing, you should be able to post when the episode is available for purchase that you've purchased it and a reasonable estimate for when it'll be uploaded.
>Amazon's Kindle MOBI/AZW3 files, however, use identifiers (atv:kin) that could be tracked. As of now, there have been no reports of anyone being singled out in such a way. To be on the safe side, if you intend to upload MOBI/AZW3 files, you are encouraged to use a modified form of the Calibre deDRM plugin found here: DRM Removal Tools 6.0.8 for Kindle Rentals & Watermark Removal. This modified plugin will remove the part of the "atv:kin" string that could contain personal information. This modification of the plugin will only work when you first DRM a MOBI/AZW3 - if you have previously deDRMed a file, it will NOT change that file (you would need to re-download a fresh copy from Amazon and re-do the deDRMing process).
Here's the modified plugin:
I agree. This has to be the most non-well thought-out rule on BTN/HDbits. Look at this, still no 1080 web-dl because we gotta wait an arbitrary 48 hours for a slow fucker to upload that shit. That 720p webdl there is from DRACULA but for some reason it hasn't been deleted yet.
To all you naysayers saying MTV was curry, look at them now, they were the first to release the damn thing if you don't count public trackers (RARBG released even faster on HDbits).
I recommended to download Bandcamp but I've hardly downloaded more than 5gb still. I joined a few weeks ago.
Conservative but desu the biggest benefit in doing the requests for me has been finding out about a few artists whose music I really enjoy and being able to listen via the bandcamp app of which the design I really appreciate, very convenient for me.
>paying to watch something you can get for free in about ten minutes is something to be proud of
>being proud of paying double for tv shows that are already funded by your taxpayer dollars
Can you read? It got released in HDbits (before deletion), BTN (same), public tracker RARBG and others and on MTV (DRACULA, still there)
Torrents are just as fast, and free. Get fucked m8.
99% of my time on 4chan is spent on mu
i use what.cd
everything i could ever need that isn't on spotify is on there (inb4 >he pays for music)
any reasons i wouldn't want to use what?
I'm not IRC bro, I'm just asking why if you're not already on IRC you wouldn't just ask the question on IRC so the thread has less useless posts and you get your response faster.
Actually don't worry. Only ask if you have any more questions after this.
Basically there's two types of BC free.
Buy now (name your price) or just music flagged free. If it's flagged free I believe a lot of people have bots set to dl and upload it already. Name your price is only free if there's no minimum. Use auti.st for disposable emails for BC downloads.
Basically go onto the bandcamp arrived today or this week or this month and farm uploads. You just dl that shit in all formats - FLAC, 320, V0, V2. You can also search google for free BC uploads but this is a bit less accurate.
You can estimate how much buffer you get from the albums by the number of tracks there and how long each track goes for.
And yes people autosnatch this shit even if it's enormous. Because you are looking at everything uploaded this week/day it's always going to be 2016 which is autodl'd. Back in 2015 I easily uploaded albums which were about 3.6 gigs in size in total off BC.
Beware with BC artists - they might share their name with other real artists and stuff. Also 'various artists' is not sufficient to fill out the field on what - make sure you search album name as well as artist name or you might accidentally end up with an album dupe on what.
Music is actually really annoying to upload because of the enormous forms. Some people like doing ebooks, some ebooks are enormous. You can get a tonne of large ebooks off kat.cr or libgen for uploading.
Applications - yeah these tend to be quite chunky as well and you can upload them.
Manga. Personally I don't upload because it's really annoying to make cbz but it's also a good buffer maker.
Japanese music and drama cds - you'll be able to upload this if you're fast and lurk /a/ a lot.
Easy if you have access to a good academic library or ovedrive esp for ebooks in textbook season. You can also get free ebooks from amazon and other ebook retailers by dedrming the trials or buying books, stripping drm and refunding them which is a great way of getting free buffer.
Some people use soulseek but it's a bit risky to do that with music because of shit transcodes but obviously this should yield much greater buffer profits.
Some people are also stupid and don't think to check other trackers like bibliotik so you can profit off them. I've also traded some of my buffer from bibliotik for a significantly greater amount of buffer on what.
Read up on this. Mostly helps more on bonus point trackers but for popular albums/lotsa traffic on albums you can probably get a decent amount.
Only works if you have a great seedbox
>waiting for the freeleech
>waiting for staff picks
>You can also get free ebooks from amazon and other ebook retailers by dedrming the trials or buying books, stripping drm and refunding them which is a great way of getting free buffer.
Anyone got experience doing this?
What programs do you use to strip the drm?
Does amazon refund to your credit card or do they give you bullshit amazon credit or whatever?
What kind of invite system is that? They will ask you a few questions? and then ask "what is your e-mail"
Christ, I know social anxiety is common on 4chan but guys, come the fuck on.
Any BTN overlords lurking here? Is it worth the grind/wait time? I'm thinking they have HDbits invites there.
I want to literally waste hundred of $ getting a NAS+seedbox just to make it there in less than a year legit. Fuck me.
You have probably purchased more box sets purchases than I have and could you elaborate on why you regret each box set purchase?
All you have contributed to /ptg/ atm has been that image and you didn't even say you would provide sauce in exchange.
Go to /b/
>Any BTN overlords lurking here? Is it worth the grind/wait time? I'm thinking they have HDbits invites there.
You don't need to make Overlord to get into HDBits. It's easier than that to join. PTP is the way to join HDBits.
I didn't regret my harry potter bluray box set (UK version imported cause fuck US version)
Also didn't regret the Lord of the Rings extended edition bluray box set.
I DO regret most other box sets I have gotten however.
Family guy is a big one that I regret.
The bitrate is shit. So you either go with webdl and get shit image but good bitrate, OR you go with the webrip for shit bitrate but good image quality.
Better to just wait for BR.
>Downloading True Detective will never feel as good as holding a box set of it or looking at it in my very small collection of favorites.
I've never understood this desu. I went digital as soon as possible and never felt like I was missing anything. Also with a wall display layout in Kodi it's pretty close to seeding it as you say.
>could you elaborate on why you regret each box set purchase
They're inconvenient. They become useless relics. The extras included rarely seem worth the price. If I want to watch a show, I always always resort to my drives. I've also had to move a lot of times and I just give most to my parents now because I can't be fucked to take them with me everywhere.
The only Box Set I ever plan on buying ever again is Mad Men's complete one and that's just because it's my favourite show ever and the collector's edition looks pretty great. Still for £85 it's pretty fucking pricey.
Why is my internet shitting itself seeding more than 30 torrents at a time even when no one is leeching? It turns off, just gives up, at the 30 mark. Comes back when I close my client or pause a few of them. Again, none of them are connected to any peers.
I'm retarded, so please explain like you're talking to a retard.
He's saying he'll take the best available rather than wait months since he just wants to watch a TV show not sperg about it.
Bitrate doesn't fucking matter if the image looks like I rubbed vasaline on the screen. The HULU rip is more than enough to enjoy this show right now.
Now fuck off, Captain Autism.
stop using qbit.
On PTP 1080p WEB-DL is always trumped by 720p. I don't know if it's the same for tv shows, but itunes movie web-dl 1080p is usually worse, not given enough bitrate to begin with.
>reminder that private trackers are breeding grounds for reddit-tier faggotry
>reminder that cloistering information should be considered an act of ultimate selfishness
>reminder that the whole point of torrents is sharing
So the big question here,
wait for a /pure/ registration or get an /impure/ invite from an existing member?
>Does that mean that I should delete every 1080 webdl I have ever downloaded? Is there a definitive list of what is objectively better at 1080p for webdls?
I've got your back lads.
Aside from this you can also check the comparison threads on HDB and BTN.
I think they are destined to become useless relics but for me they haven't yet. You are probably right with your points and I can definitely see the marketing for it when companies decide not to release physical media anymore.
But like you said with Mad Men - which is also one of my favorite shows. The box sets I have of The Matrix and BSG won't be regrets.
>But why ruin the experience with an inferior format? It's like watching gravity in 3d at home instead of at imax.
Because I don't give a fuck about Bluray. I just want to watch the show in a good enough format and the HULU rip is better than scene.
It's fantastic for finding music. I would pay for a service that recommends me music as well as it does. It's also easy af

Also, I think it's the ethical thing to do. When I was making $8/hr, it made a lot of sense not to pay for music, but not any more.
