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

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"
guys, if i invite friends to emp, will they be able to see my vile fetish snatches?
Nigga I need everything, including buffer, seed size, average seedtime, uploads, bonus points, etc. How the fuck else am I supposed to impress potential HDB recruiters?
I specifically said
So yeah I leave that shit seeding for at least a few months. I do love movies though so I watch everything I download, even if it's the worst movie ever made.
Is it that important? Because I used to pump and dump a few months ago with a seedbox. My avg seedtime tanked to something like a month.
Do they want something even higher? Shit I don't even think I can bring it higher. It might be mathematically impossible.
Month is pretty good, if it's not good enough you can make it good enough with a bit of work. You can quite easily make it higher even if you dumped a LOT of stuff. Just go grab 200 of the smallest torrents and perma seed them, it'll rocket.
Real talk. I filled a request on ptp. Someone beat me to filling it. My upload was marked trumpable. If I redo it (trump it) will the the request be unfilled and get another shot at the 10tb (not happy with the 5tb I got)?
Honestly lad HDB has the biggest library of full blurays on earth.
In saying that ALOT of BD's on PTP are trumpable as they're unseeded, so as long as it's not a really popular movie you might be able to trump some from whatever tracker you're talking about.
Because I know some fucks here will steal my little scheme for easy uploads/buffer. I already gave enough information for any autists to figure it out on their own. I'm already fucked anyway, fuck you it's every man for himself.
>tfw was global banned a few years ago and just decided to start work on the long road back into PTs
Is the scene still decent? Not sure if it's worth it. Before anyone says, I'm on a new IP, new computer, new city, new email address, there's no way of tracking me. I just interviewed for WCD and got in, I think I'll be in most places I want by summer.
>he literally got a new identity, physically moved away and bought a new computer just so he wouldn't get caught on his silly Internet private trackers
I know well enough not to now. I had a trade in my tree. Shit sucks but this was pre-pure days so that's how it goes.
A lot changed in three years, this is just circumstances.
>be on pornbay for a couple of weeks
>decide to download a gay torrent for the lulz
>click on "clients" in qBittorrent
>all the IP adresses are United Kingdom and United States of America
Looks like waffles.fm is back up recently. Anyone know if AudioNews still opens up on the 2nd of each month? Apparently ProAudioTorrents has become a shit hole and obviously IPT isn't sufficing for what I look for(music production)
Does anyone here know the MyAnonaMouse keyword for getting an invite
>decide to download gay porn
>for the lulz
I got some clues as "read all three links word for word."
And "one of those pages says somthing to the effect of type _______ in the irc channel"
So I'll have to cross-reference 6A9FA068 with the Rules and FAQ to see you're not a mod trying to catch my ass.
Transmission-qt puts out a very quiet, almost inaudible whine when the window is open. Not whenever it's running, only when I'm actually looking at the filelist. Am I going insane?
So the fella, right? He was doing all these little encodes for the tracker, and they were really good. He done loads of films like Curious George, Every Which Way But Loose, King Kong, Planet of the Apes. And all the other encoders were thinking 'what's the connection here then?'...
Could be coil whine? Do you hear it through the headphones, or from the hardware?
I know some monitors will whine when you change pixels quickly, like one of those stuck pixel fixer sites, but I can't see why transmission would cause it...
> X-files is finally resumed
> This anon gets a haunted screen
There is no other explanation...
Sounds like coil whine then. I guess it's something about the specifics of the graphics of transmission. It probably get's worse if you shake transmission around as well.
I really can't imagine why transimmison would cause coil whine in a monitor though.
I'm scared, anon.
I assume it's because they have a fucking huge library
It's PTP. The money goes on dedicated server rentals - there are separate servers for the site, tracker, and IRC. Some of these services (tracker especially) will have more than one server to help with load balancing.
Another large chunk of the cash goes on the Cloudflare business plan which provides full DDoS mitigation. This alone costs $200 per month and it's the reason why the best trackers are never affected by DDoS attacks whilst shitty trackers like Bib and GGn go down every week or so.
at work we get about 2.5 million hits per day, and our web infrastructure costs about 1,200 USD per month (fully managed).
not sure how traffic heavy PTP is, it seems pretty busy, or how big of a load running a tracker is.
FYI WCD are the most autistic about tracking previously banned users down. Seriously.
I've been globally banned many times (mostly for ban evading) on all good trackers but after a new IP and some new emails, i got back into all. Then i join WCD for the fuck of it (i don't even like music) and they get me banned from everywhere again.
Invited someone from early /ptg/ days, almost instantly banned from that site (BTN) and also on WCD, AHD, GGn, PTP etc.
After a few weeks, got back on almost all apart from BTN, so decided to join WCD for the recruitment. Got global banned after around a week.
Fast forward a few years, i'm on everything apart from HDB and WCD lel
>have resolved all their issues quite quickly
DNS shit can't take more than 48 hours to fix, and usually within 12 is fixed for most people.
they probably forgot to pay or something stupid with their registrar.
i am a member but don't use it that much since PTP is so much better in every way.
>registrar fucked them
how? they probably fucked something up. registering a domain and keeping it renewed isn't exactly complicated
> and they made the mistake of waiting it out
yeah, they aren't proactive so they wait until small problems get big. that's called being a shitty admin
okay you are right there, although that quality is dropping pretty fast. it is amazing how many times encoding 'teams' fuckup, their quality has really gone down. fucked up uploads, a few semi recent ones ended up getting reuploaded like three times, it's pathetic.
i generally try to grab the hdbits encodes,
PTP does have some room for growth with encoding but they are working on it, and end of the day for grabbing movies it makes no difference. their library is better than ahd by far, their admin team is more competent, and so on.
it doesn't matter because they are both basically freeleech. ptp buffer is so easy it is ridiculous, ahd every encode is 75% fl. in comparing the two they are both essentially freeleech all the time.
oh yeah, only one has a much larger library, and they aren't too retarded to keep their domain registered.
PTP buffer IS easy. AHD buffer is easier, at least it is because of the site wide FL that happened. I literally never have to seed another byte and I won't kill my buffer for the next 3 years.
True, PTP has a bigger library. However everything I actually search for tends to be on both. There are some cases where PTP has the superior encode though - like a HDB internal that's just better than the AHD one, and that's what I tend to use PTP for most of the time.
I don't actually download any SD stuff so that kills a lot of the torrents off for me.
yeah and ahd does give you 200gb free to start provided you seed them, but their software is such shit it fucks up and tells people they are on ratio watch until 7 days have passed or whatever. it's just amateur hour over there.
well they fucked up their registration somehow. can blame it on their registrar all they want but sounds like they did something stupid like forgot to pay and then the domain lapsed. that's what the whois records look like happened anyways.
here is how you keep a domain active
>check payment method is up to date
that's literally the steps. they are morons if they fucked that up.
if you are 18 or older i highly recomned tripping at least once (but not with the asshole friend who want to give you 5 your first trip)
The first time i tripped i was alone in my room listening to flying lotus, was an amazing night and i learned so much about myself and was able to break down various social barriers that prevented me from interacting with others.
I honestly believe i would still be living with my mom if i never took lsd and got control of my life.
That and the 6 months of hyper mdma use (which i do not recommend, shits highly addictive, I'm glad i finally broke the chains), was able to pretty much force me to enjoy being at a club, or around others.
Eventually i was able to break down pretty much all the social anxiety I suffer on a day to day basis, and can actually talk to people, socialize and become good friends with co-workers and the such.
I drop like once a year as a "reset".
Not everyone needs to drop acid to find their spark, but it really helps some of us.
PS: the Disney Epcot "History of the world" fireworks show literally made me tear up tripping it was so beautiful.
i still get goosebumps watching the show sober or watching videos.
>(moose.awesome-hd.me) and irc (irc.awesome-hd.me) addresses will have changed too, yes this means you will have to change your torrents again
those fucks, now i have to do this again.
well, I think desi.cd would be curry like it's a joke.
curry trackers are not taken seriously
not worth your time
have shit retention or just in general suck
That's my impression but often anons will call a tracker 'curry' just to insult or make others seem like it isn't a good tracker at all.
>mfw 312cuck has been driven away from his echo chamber on /r/trackers because a few simple trolls pissed shim off so easily
It's that easy people, if you want to really get to him just annoy him anonymously and don't give him the opportunity to ignore you unless he chooses to leave.
I'm just going to stop. I said that so I could learn more about him because he apparently is the worse person you would want to deal with ever because he's autistic and a dick and insecure and desu I hope I never ever have to ever speak to him ever.
/ptg/ has put the fear in me.
If your average seedtime is less than a month, HDBits won't even look at your application.
HDBits wants all your stats to be fairly high. That means retards who only download freeleech are fucked.
You sound new. MTV is likely closer to your grasp and for movies, public trackers, I think you would be just fine.
You are a smartass and probably lazy.
No doubt, you didn't read the OP at all.
Why the fuck do trackers do this shit?
I want to join TehC but the following countries are banned:
Egypt, Romania, India, Turkey, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Malaysia
I live in Israel and because of this racist shit I can't join? They literally banned all Jewish, Muslim and strongly Catholic countries.
Has nothing to do with race or religion.
It has to do with 90% of the users from those countries end up selling their accounts or leveling up their accounts so they get invites and selling the invites.
Not our fault jews can't pass up a sale.
looks like Animebytes won the MTV poll and AB will soon be getting an official MTV invite thread so if anyone wants to be pure on MTV just make sure you're on AB.
Hopefully this means MTV will start growing more soon and it can really start to come into it's own and rival BTN.
>forgetting about IPT
Lol, IPT is shit tier though. They are known for expoloiting their users and extorting them for money.
They are pay 2 leech and not respected at ALL in the private tracker community as a whole.
>really start to come into it's own and rival BTN.
I never really cared for many tv shows. I would just download them from public trackers but holy shit those DRACULA release some good encodes of my favorite shows.
I'm on AB/w.cd already and working towards PU on what. I think I'll be comfy and set after a few months.
Everyone wants HDB but even after lurking /ptg/ for months. I don't really think I'll need it. AHD soon and PTP in a few months.
you wish faggot, been on /ptg/ for 6-7 months before heading to r/trackers (and r/trackers is pretty garbage desu)
Well if BTN keeps not recruiting.... MTV will surpass it eventually.
I got on IPT because /ptg/ was like 'it's good to have as a general tracker'
I feel so scummy using it. And I donated so I could easily grab some apps/movies as I was short on disk space and had gotten a seedbox recently.
I don't know if I should ask you to please stop posting because just 'wow, this is a real human being' or ask you to continue posting to create a bigger hole for yourself as AHD's ungrateful entitled brat bitch.
There is literally nothing wrong with IPT.
Other trackers were ass ravaged over the peer stealing, but why should any IPT user be upset that the IPT staff goes to great lengths to benefit IPT users? If anything they should be thankful.
Because they also stole the users money in last years christmas raffle as well as charging uses money for upload credit and wiping HnRs
it's a curry tracker and there is a reason the Cabal doesn't recruit from there.
When you have a raffle for items and are charging your users $5 per ticket to enter, and then at the end of the raffle the winners are 3 accounts run by the staff that are never online and then covered up after this was brought up to the staff and anyone who questioned it was banned.
Sure sounds like an AMAZING tracker.
Who knows Anon, we may be on the cusp of biological immortality.
>There is literally nothing wrong with IPT
Here, I will type them out for you because it's faster.
(You) (You) (You)
To benefit the users? Because as Hannibal said "There is no morality, only morale" and some users have morale.
Why would you support a site that knowingly steals from their users?
You're probably curry trash who can't get into a Cabal tracker because your country is banned or your internet is so shit you HAVE to have pay2leech or you can't survive.
I just don't care what the staff does or what other enemies they might have in the wider tracker world. It doesn't concern me.
Log in. Download files. Log out. That's all it's good for. That's all any tracker is good for.
And please stop using that fucking cabal term. It was retarded when /a/ was suing it for fansub groups, it's even more retarded here, considering none of you know shit about how deep any of these sites connections to each other really are.
What's to understand about it, Italy are shit users too.
>considering none of you know shit about how deep any of these sites connections to each other really are.
Lol, you realize tracker staff regularly browse and even post here...right?
Also, how fucking new are you that you are supporting IPT and saying "cabal" is a retarded term.
Lurk fucking more.
Yes, tracker staff may browse here, so what? What does that have to do with you? What investment do you have beyond not losing your account?
Cabal is retarded. Right now I could start a 100 post shitposting chain about who is cabal and who is not because none of you even agree who is in it or who is a satellite member of it and who is ddossing who.
Who said anything about supporting IPT? I use IPT, but I'll also use AHD & PTP and any other tracker. I'm not going to put on some moral hat and claim IPT is evil and you should only use these respectable piracy websites.
I'm sure every tracker has done something to piss someone off somewhere and I don't care about anything any of them have done.
Do any of you bother to post on your trackers' forums?
AHD & AB are cabal too. Remember it's not about the best for content but who shares information between each other.
That guy who got back on every tracker besides WCD suggests What is the controller of this shit.
I use to post on AB but just initially for yen. It's probably the only forum I could find myself being a regular poster because people respond to you and you can learn lurking the forums.
What and PTP are the big players in the cabal in terms of hunting down bad users. BTN as well to an extent, but invites are so hard to get there that it's unlikely that anyone with invite privileges is going to risk getting themselves banned.
IPT isn't even secure. Why the fuck would anybody defend a tracker that cares more about taking money than security? We are on fucking /g/, you idiot, and if you don't care about security you don't belong on /g/ at all.
kek, keep saying that but you tried that same insult on me earlier.
>you wish faggot, been on /ptg/ for 6-7 months before heading to r/trackers (and r/trackers is pretty garbage desu)
Yes but it's anime which doesn't fit in with cabal media types.
if you want, why don't we include BitMe for elearning, Emp for porn, bib for books, etc... if you include every type of tracker then the "cabal" list will enter double digits
>he doesn't have IPT
You are probably that redditor who is spamming his stupid image trying to shit on IPT.
>/ptg/ decided long ago
/ptg/ is not one person, fuck off.
nope, not even him. IPT is just confirmed shit and has been for months on /ptg/ in fact, today is the FIRST day in over a month where IPT has seriously been shilled this hard.
I am here every day and have been for 4 months now.
No, but here it is so you can enjoy it.
You're the original poster I think because the versions I post are about half that size.
I have been using private trackers for over 2 years and I have never had any of the dozens of posts I make on them deleted. You must either be retarded or some kind of autist who can't talk to people properly.
try 10 or 15 at this point actually.
I have a 22kb version of it that someone compressed to hell, but it's lossy as fuck.
I'm not that guy but I had maybe 2 or 3 posts deleted.
One, I was high at the time and fucked up my response and one, I was being retarded outside of IDC and then the other I don't remember.
>>having bandwith caps in 2016
I don't have bandwidth caps you idiot, however saving bandwidth is still important for the internet as a whole. not me personally.
You know anon, sometimes life is more than just about yourself.
It was all for off-topic shit. Conversations steered away from the OP and I chimed in because I'm just used to that being the norm after spending so much time here.
Anyway I realized that I'm out of my element and it really isn't worth putting my download privileges at risk.
Defend cause I'm posting on 4chan?!Oh I know you autists think talking shit about IPT is normal and cool so you can further circlejerk while you refresh your 1337 tracker homepage.
