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

If it was that easy to get into ncore then why is it near db9 on this image? They are even offering invites in public forums.
Can you list specific examples then? HDbits, exigo, btmusic, db9 being up there seems pretty accurate.
Unless you can form a coherent sentence not written like a 12 year old, stop shitposting.
Stop tying to force your own shit joke. This is the original image.
Ookay then, first up we've got this lovely 'Vanity House' compilation CD, featuring artists such as Turboretro, and The Stereophones. So look forward to that.
We've also got the latest album from Drizzy Wap, in fact I think we'll probably play something of that a bit later?
Alright, hah, and the big movie this, prepare yourself, for the film that no one's seen ... but, is owned by every single Xfm listener: LADDER 49 starring John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix.
If you want to win this bag o' tat, simply email in. Karl are you ready with the questions?
I recently joined AnimeBytes on a whim. I downloaded a manga and have seeded it for 158 hours. My ratio on it is 0 as not one person has downloaded it in that time. There are four other seeds.
The descriptions of the media are lacking. I'm used to seeing a breakdown of the codec and bitrate but these don't seem to be common on the available torrents. Given that uploading seems to be nigh impossible, I wouldn't want to waste my starting 20 ratio (19.9 after the manga) by downloading the wrong format.
I prefer public trackers. In that same 158 hours, I have uploaded over 150GB to other people, which I thought was the purpose of p2p in the first place, not some Ponzi scheme of ratio.
>expecting to get upload from a manga
are you literally retarded?
The site is mainly anime, MOST people downloading things will be downloading anime, if you are looking to gain buffer you need to download anime series as well as the AoTF and AoTW.
I hope this post is just bait cause if not.....wtf anon.
> He complains about one of the comfiest pt.
Anime is a different game entirely when it comes to this tracker /ptg/ ryde or die shit. AB is an entry level tracker, first door in for those who don't want to go the whatcuck route.
First things first. Don't get your fucking manga from AB unless it's a gigantic 70 volume shit. Manga always gets downloaded through irc or madokami. Manga should only ever be uploaded to AB. Nobody wastes fucking time downloading manga from AB that's why nobody seeds that shit either besides the guy that fucking uploaded it.
Next, 80% of the encodes on AB are shit. About 95% of the freeleech 1080p encodes are bloated shit. The best release of a show is usually bluray, 10-bit, 720p and NON-FREE. Unfortunately this means it'll have nowhere near as much as the shit tier Abesu 1080p FL rip of any show.
Long story short, just snatch FL, use that to farm yen and build buffer, upload 5 shitty transcodes, make it to PU and get into better trackers.
AB is comfy and all, but using it for manga. U DUN GOOFED. U DUN FUCKING GOOFED.
>The best release of a show is usually bluray, 10-bit, 720p
To be fair, there is ALMOST always a corresponding 10-bit 1080p encode that is just up-scaled 720p. Since the 1080p is freeleech, I grab that.
Alright here we go then
the first one, that thing that never forgets should be locked up, whats all that about? and the initials there are CTE
second one then, I don't mind kissing a bit of metal, what am I doing there then? and the initial there is AC
last one, and remember this is on email and its at random so take your time... This web browser is a right nightmare to use and the initial there is A
Email in your answers n that, bit of placebo and then monkey news next?
>do you have no reading comprehension
Based on the screenshot and post, it looks like you took a screenshot of someone snitching to Potatoe or whoever in a thread on AB you fucking mongoloid.
>running back to snitch like a little faggot
Just kill yourself already you shit stain.
Fuck off you purist autist, I dont give a fuck if it's gonna be very slightly worse looking, it's god damn identical for all intents and purpose, grab screen shots and try and disprove me if you think i'm wrong.
Fair enough. I needed a RAW of the manga in this case and AB was a lot cleaner than Senmanga. I thought I'd let it sit awhile and see what happened with it before trying to DL anything I might want for myself.
I've had this problem before with other trackers like Avistaz and BakaBT and I ended up downloading whatever had a big cluster of leeches and then uploading that, hoping I'd be able to leave some other schmuck left with the bag as far as ratio went. It worked but man, it's such a waste of resources.
This is something I tend to avoid because my little ARM boxes won't play it (no hardware support). Ironically, the descriptions on AB weren't any better at telling me this than public trackers.
tl;dr I'm just going to use AB as a last resort for anniemae and mahnguh.
>thanks for the invite tho I guess
Hold on, let me just go waste my buffer so I can save a few GB of hard drive space
Yeah kill yourself, seriously.
It would have taken me MONTHS to get enough buffer to have downloaded 720p content instead I just grab what i want in 1080p and don't give a fuck, it looks the same it just takes up more space on my hard drives, oh fucking no...
I'd rather have 2.5TB+ in 2 months instead of waiting 8-12 months to get the buffer required to grab 1.5TB worth of 720p
>all this reddit spacing and anger
>waste my buffer
Buffer is there to be used.
AB's economy is so ridiculously easy that provided you actually seed things you download you can snatch whatever you want whenever you want. It's virtually ratioless.
Honestly who cares. General trackers are all useless and made redundant by a few good specialized trackers. Just have IPT sitting around in case you ever need it but really, you probably wont.
It's anime, most of it is made by tawianese basketweavers hoping to earn more from a second job. It's rare shit will actually be mastered at 1080p. Of course there are some exceptions like say 7 YEARS OF HAND DRAWN ANIMATION Redline.
>1. Cage the Elephant
Alright, I'll give you that one. It just about works.
>2. Alice Cooper?
Alice Cooper - alice copper - illkiss copper - i'll kiss copper?
Is this the fuckin rollover that nobody got? Idiot.
>It's virtually ratioless.
Yeah but you only get buffer by grabbing 1080p freeleech things because that is what the majority of users are grabbing because it is freeleech all the time. It is also what new users will be grabbing since they dont have buffer yet.
I have gained over 1TB of buffer by uploading all the 1080p freeleech stuff I have grabbed
Don't even try and tell me I would have gotten anywhere close to that seeding 720p, because I have some 720p stuff and it is some of my least seeded content.
1080p not only is freeleech 24/7 but it's the easiest way of gaining buffer on AB as well
Jesus, is it this easy to trigger /ptg/?
So what if I space my sentences? Does this anger you somehow?
You mad? Why are you frustrated over a simple text format?
Maybe you should get a life nerd. Lol!
What does that mean? Is it something to do with a particular web browser? A feature of all web browsers? I shouldn't have to ask these questions, the clues should stand up on there own!
he never said he was trolling, and he isn't me either, the person calling you retarded for suggesting downloading only 720p.
I'd love your explanation of how a new user should survive on AB by ONLY downloading non-freeleech 720p. I'll be waiting.
it is alice cooper, see the clues do work.
I was actually thinking
I lick copper
Well it works, they are getting it right on the emails so it does work
The 3rd one you are on the right lines, "ad" but its like a saying, its somewhere you wouldnt want to be you know?
then why the fuck are you backing up an anon that literally said it works on any tracker and calling ME a retard for saying he's an idiot?
Seriously; reading comprehension, think before you post.
Like I have already said, I know it works on MOST trackers, the anon earlier specifically said it works on ANY tracker, which is just bullshit.
Are you actually retarded or just not reading the previous posts?
>Minimum seed time met
haha time to delete these shitty movies and move on the next ones. As if I was ever going to watch Black Mass, Johnny Depp is pure shit.
Don't care HD-BYTES is a top tier tracker for all nfos and sfv files.
Most good trackers have been around for years, there is no way most members would ever be able to keep up with invites if they were required to be used.
I'd have had to invite 100+ people at this point, and fuck that. I have invited none.
Nobody ever shills AHD over HDB. There's just one guy that constantly shitposts dumb shit like
>can't wait for that sweet AHD remux
As a false flag to get people to dislike the tracker and the community.
While it's true that AHD is comfy as hell and likely has the best staff of any tracker, HDBits is better in every other area (and the staff are pretty fucking nice as well, they just have to be uptight sometimes because curries sell invites to their site for $350) and nobody really argues otherwise.
They're both great trackers.
>all these fucking language learning books on bB
>that one guy that was uploading every fucking stand-up comedy album release from the past few years
>all American citizens will be microchipped in less than 3 years
>this is the dumb shit that people repost on my Facebook newsfeed
And this is why I had my shit deactivated for 2 years. Absolute retarded fucks reposting/reblogging ro whatever the fuck you want to call it, that retarded shit nonstop.
>4 days 17 hours time elapsed
we'll get there eventually senpaitachi
Yeah there is!
Freeleech percentages don't work on autodl and you should filter by release name and size instead. (D-Z0N3, NCmt.etc)
Personally I don't recommend autosnatching on AHD. Seeding size and average seedtime is he real bigBoy stat that will get you places. Just download movies you' like to watch and seed them for as long as is convenient for you. It's not really a tracker that requires a seedbox given that your first 800GB of internals are required ratio free if they're fully seeded and you have the BP system to support you afterwards if you have a shit connection.
>gotta wait an arbitrary 48 hours until a slow fucking retard can do it because he signed up on some thread to reserve it
>still no web-dl upload up even though DRACULA/RARBG/etc have released it themselves on other trackers
>can't criticize the thread or the rules because they will ban you
MTV is looking better and better every day than BTN/HDB. And before that retard from the other day replies again, I have download the NTB release so I don't even care in the end. But for those that prefer web-DL are fucked.
>open laptop lid at work
>hentai resumes playing at full volume
Oh, well ok. What is your buffer. If you have enough buffer to be autosnatching doesn't it make sense to just download what you want? or is the benefit that you will gain more than double the upload?
Never watched the x files but it looks bad.
>Nobody wastes fucking time downloading manga from AB
Mind if I run a quick survey, /ptg/?
Are there any trackers you have joined within the last month? If so,
What are they?
How long ago did you join them (respectively, if multiple sites)?
How much have you uploaded and downloaded?
Would you have downloaded/uploaded more or less if the site's economy ran differently?
My buffer is in the terabytes so not worried about that. Also anytime I snatch them it goes to at least 1, so I make out alright since 75% FL.
You gain the upload but on AHD really bp is what you want. It's pretty much freeleech after you've been there a while since buffer is so easy.
>Are there any trackers you have joined within the last month?
Not in the last month, but the last I got in was What.
>How much have you uploaded and downloaded?
>Would you have downloaded/uploaded more or less if the site's economy ran differently?
Probably, but I joined what looking for some cinematic/trailer music and the 25 tokens that were given helped me a lot.
You guys would be surprised of some work places. Not going to go too much into details but I know a guy who had a boss who would openly masturbate in video conference rooms with his coworkers.
Staff a site, or join the scene
It's a whole other journey trust me
Thanks, I was mostly trying to gather how much you used the site within the first month of joining. I take it you used the tokens primarily to gain buffer?
MTV will be opening invites for a week
Invites are now open for all classes, again. You will have one month (four weeks) to send the invites, to whoever you feel like. After the month, the rules voted by you regarding invites will be enforced. Which also includes the invites being removed from the market, but you will still be able to send out invites by sending a staff message.
The accounts who haven't been used more than two months, will be disabled by a script which will run once at 6 months.
Are there any trackers for Linux ISO's with open registration?
NEET = Not in Employment, Education or Training
can be synonymous with shut-in or hikkikomori but basically means you live with your parents
normie has many different meanings depending on who you ask, but it's basically 4chan's equivalent of the word hipster, in the sense that it's some "other", some group of people that whoever is using the word normie feels shouldn't belong
the word normie is not synonymous with hipster, i was just comparing how the words are used
generally normie means someone who is well-adjusted and is doing at least alright for themself: has friends they spend time with regularly, doesn't spend as much time on 4chan, may have a job/live on their own or have a girlfriend/boyfriend
in the future use urbandictionary.com
Sweet man I look forward to it. The way to do an accurate comparison is to use AvsPmod to spline36 resize the 720p to 1080p and compare it to the 1080p.
With most live action you should find that the resized 720p has better detail and less h264 introduced artifacts.
>in the future use urbandictionary.com
urban dictionary literally gives the wrong definition of 'normie' with respect to chan culture.
Remove this tracker since they are now charging users to leech/seed.
200pounds for 500gig downloads/uploads. Registration is also closed.

3x the space for 3x the price, emphasis on price
300GB is already more than he needs
There is also a smaller slot on seedhost with 150GB space and 1TiB bandwidth for 5 euro but it was sold out when I checked, otherwise I would've recommended that one.
lurk more ladskiis. EMP's been locked down for a while, although are apparently starting invites or recruitment very soon.
The anon you're quoting joined as a "fux0r refugee" when that ship sank.
>Do we have a policy not to list p2l trackers now?
Though it is about being a cunt tracker though, they had some harsh upload disruption. Their tracker sucked dick. Uploads failed, even small one. Next day receive a bann for not seeding but being unable to download anything to begin seeding.
Remove this one, while ensuring they know they are going to soon become offline employed NEETs.
Guide to easily get internals from HDB, BTN, AHD etc if you're not in them yet:
- General trackers: TL has quite a few AHD encodes vs IPT. IPT gets some HDB and MTeam, HdArea, and HDT encodes. TSH has some P2P inetrnals from HDB and BTN as well. Ncore and Filelist.ro are top picks for P2P content.
- BitHDTV gets quite a few internals. Hard to seed though.
- NetHD, TorViet, UHDBits get quite a few HDB internals. Tayto's home tracker is UHDbits (currently open)
- MTV (ratioless) and TTN get BTN internals mirrored. Not great retention though. Same with TSH and FL.
- TehC gets HDB, HDT and to a lesser extent AHD internals. Only PU on AB req to get in.
- If bB opens up that is a good way to get P2P albeit quite slower compared to the rest. You can request internals.
- HDT can be bought into and has HDB internals and their own. I wouldn't recommend this though unless as a last resort.
This is only for very new people who want to have backups to get internals without having to worry about ratio, wanting to cross seed or experinece P2P encodes while you are waiting to get into PTP, AHD, HDB, BTN. Feel free to add more familia.
Go back to /sp/ you australian piece of shit
>Remove this one, while ensuring they know they are going to soon become offline employed NEETs
Nah - for one, if we're going to scrutinise how well a tracker works we might as well do it for the 50 others listed in that pastebin. And I don't want to bring my personal feelings to lessen the diversity of /g/'s options. If they're smart they'll read up on the tracker before joining anyway.
Someone else can do it if they must, but not me.
The guy that runs IPT and the related trackers is a cunt who is only in it for the money. He fucks his users over for "forced donations" and holds fake raffles. They steal peers from other trackers and are suspected to be behind some of the DDOSing of other big PTs.
The owner of IPT is, generally speaking, a cunt. He injected peers from a public tracker torrent into private tracker torrents and it got some people some nastygrams. His website regularly has buy-in raffles, and the top prizes usually go to his alts or alts of admins. There's a nice infographic about some of his other exploits.
I dunno, for some reason all of my seeds were dead with a message saying the tracker was down. Restarting the box seemed to clear it up though. It's been happening a lot lately and it's a pain in my fuckin ass
sometimes on wcd, i'll be seeding a torrent that accumulates a huge amount of upload, like with a ratio an order of magnitude higher than anything else i'm seeding. it looks like it happens because a single leecher (usually, or always, running libtorrent) is at 99.9% and just keeps trying to get that last piece for weeks on end.
what's going on here? is it some kind of bug, or is this part of that pyramid scam that people run? i'm pretty sure that the torrents this happens to are always freeleech, so it's not hurting the libtorrent guy to do this, but is he doing it intentionally?
does anyone know what i'm talking about here?
I'm PU just haven't been on long enough.
I don't think I can join via mibbit or whatever, not allowed and haven't set a key yet and I fucked up an install of MIRC but thank you if you were genuinely offering.
I'm only a few weeks away from being able to get an official invite for PTP and I've appreciated the wait as I've learned more about PT's/Encodes etc.
Don't worry because I got this [K-Lined: Use a real client]
So basically with MIRC I originally installed a trail before I even got into PT's and I've thus far been unable to install a cracked version that will work. I think because of probably some leftover files that it leaves/left during my initial installation.
Concerning hexchat I installed pic related which I just realized that I missed the.exe's above and after installing that I thought maybe it was a 'soft install' like chromium but nope just ended up installing microsoft visual etc.
>Sometime reddit is useful too.
I think I'll just figure it out another time. Don't worry, you will figure me out eventually, my stumble will be apparent when I join #ptg
That isn't me and please leave whoever that is alone.
Who can I talk to if I have access to a ~10 PB cluster of NAS and want an easy invite to HDB? I'd be willing to use a bit of the space for permaseeding stuff I like but I don't have access to shit like PTP/AHD.
A rich guy, who is my friend, is upgrading his datacenter with new equipment. He gave me one of the racks that has 10PB worth of space for free.
I'm not really sure what to do with it other than downloading a shit ton of movies and tv shows.
The thing is huge and only fits on my basement, I don't even know how much electricity this thing will consume.
>I don't even know how much electricity this thing will consume.
Probably enough to make you concerned. Also the electricity required to keep that thing cool is probably going to cost a decent chunk too.
If you dont have money to invest into it it will probably never be used to it's potential.
But it's always cold on my basement, even in summer. I could probably just buy an AC to turn it down even more. I don't know. My friend told me I could sell it in case I don't want to keep it anymore, but I don't think I can list that shit on ebay or whatever.
>few thousand dollars in equipment
Are you sure? I thought I could just connect a cable + a decent switch/router to my computer. He told me he would send his cable guys for free if I ever needed help connecting shit and whatnot.
Fuck now you're making me regret even getting this fucking thing.
Yeah, ultra high density 4U racks only hold around 200-250TB of HDDs. Even if they were the crazy new 10TB helium HDDs, you're still looking at only 400TB per 4U rack.
10PB is an entire server room full of ultra high density HDD racks.
I can't. The logos and stuff are plastered everywhere and he told me I wasn't allowed to post the hardware/cases anywhere online.
I lurk the threads a bit so I'll post the my computer thing with all the space, if I ever get this thing connected to my computer somehow...now that I think I shouldn't have lied to him, I told him I had the know-how in networking kind of stuff so it would be embarrassing to ask him for tips. I should probably make a new thread on /g/.
Anon I just don't believe you, as this anon stated.
Unless you set aside a 200 square foot area in your basement for this shit and have the proper electrical setup (protip, your normal residential electrical box is 99% not powerful enough to run 10PB worth of servers/HDDs.
Also, a 10PB "nas" is just a bunch of rack mounted servers with shit loads of HDDs networked together.
>I can't. The logos and stuff are plastered everywhere and he told me I wasn't allowed to post the hardware/cases anywhere online.
Why wouldn't you be able to post some generic hardware online?
cause he is lying.
Biggest HDDs on the market right now are 10TB each.
It would require 1000 of them for a 10PB NAS.
1000 of the absolute biggest HDDs on the planet, of which they have only been in existence for about a year. (meaning if he is getting used equipment, they aren't going to be the latest 10TB drives).
So he has OVER 1000 HDDs of an unknown size, that just happen to fit in his basement.
Oh and for reference, 4U rack mounted storage servers hold around 60 3.5" HDDs.
so you'd be looking at minimum 17 4U rack servers stuffed full of 10TB HDDs.
And as we have already worked out, he doesn't have 10TB HDDs, so it would easily be 20-30 4U rack servers.
tldr, he is full of shit.
you actually deleted it kek
I don't know dude, he told me 10PB. It might be an estimation or whatever. It's only a single rack and similar size to the pic I showed.
It's not generic, it looks like it was customized for a certain high profile company. The thing is even painted bright red all over with the logos everywhere, smooth edges everywhere and it's very nice too look at. I saw one at his work with all lights on and it looked like something you'd see on an alien spaceship. It's kind of hard to explain in words.
>I don't know dude, he told me 10PB. It might be an estimation or whatever. It's only a single rack and similar size to the pic I showed.
well assuming its an industry standard 42U rack.
You could probably fit at the ABSOLUTE theoretical maximum (assuming 10TB hdds), around 6PB.
However, I highly doubt someone gave you helium filled 10TB HDDs for free, as they are super limited production at the moment and STUPID expensive.
So lets assume they are 4TB or 6TB drives.
That leaves you with 2.4 to 3.6PB of total storage.
Also, a 42U rack generally requires a 40A circuit, so hope you have one already in your electrical box.
>Also, a 42U rack generally requires a 40A circuit, so hope you have one already in your electrical box
I have no idea about electrical equipment. Can I get that for a normal sized house? How much money are we talking here?
I could probably invest a small 1k-2k$ if it's worth it, maybe rent the space online or something. I think I'm in over my head here.
Most houses might have a single 40A for the washer/dryer.
You'd likely need to hire an electrician to come in and rewire your basement, you'd be looking at at least a $1k to do that, maybe more depending on your house and what current electrical hookup you already have.
It will cost more if he needs to install an entirely new breaker box or something more extreme, this all depends on your house and shit though so I cant really help you here.
>I think I'm in over my head here.
That much I can agree with.
If you honestly think it's too much for you you can sell most of the equipment piecemeal probably.
pic related. but then no option for captcha shows up :[
Captcha should show automatically when you start typing, sometimes it bugs though, reopen the window. Also check umatrix/noscript isn't cucking you - but that should have already been happening were it to happen at all.
Ebay or tech forums if you are a member of one. If you live near a large city craigs list or similar.
HDDs are fairly simple to sell, as long as they weren't abused too heavily you can sell for a decent bit ~$30 for a 2TB, around $60-75 for a 4TB, maybe around $120-150 for a 6TB.
If they were used very heavily though and are prone to failure you might want to knock off even more.
Up to you though.
Doesn't happen with mine.
Are you using stock oneechan or are you using the fork that specifically works alongside 4chanx?
So after fooling around and trying to figure it out. this is what I'm managing with now. Maybe I'll give into the botnet again and install it with stock chrome.
Thanks for the advice though /senpai/ /ptg/
well it's better than stock I suppose, but no kawaii girls to spruce things up!
It's working now-but on Waterfox. Which is ironic because I like to browse 4chan on Chromium but whatever. This will work for me.
>Not sure what you mean and I haven't tried it.
I prefer browsing 4chan in catalog mode these days.
Sweet. I got it working in Chromium now so I'm good and I always browse via catalog though at first it was strange but not I only browse catalog. Will check it with 4chanx now but doesn't look too different
I installed a 4chanx fork (ccd0) and worked.
Main thing I enjoy is the ability to have hover images, just hover the mouse over an image to expand it to full size.
