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"
Worse but it gets some p2p releases and is ratioless. Sketchy retention too. Fairly good pre times though (top 10).
Definitely elite on what for PTP as it's only a matter of time that PTP closes their doors. TehC might be a good alternative until you get there though (just dload MOTW every week for buffer)
>We would have preferred to open up registrations again on our anniversary, but unfortunately that is not yet possible, as not all new security measurements are in place yet.
>not yet possible
It's just a garbage dump for content for starters, doesn't have internals etc, isn't as organised or as well seeded as real trackers. It's admins are corrupt fucks who scam their users and attack other actually reputable trackers. Being a member is a red flag for other trackers. That's about it.
I have no reason to use them and I'm sure as hell not going to just because.
Amazing numbers. I can't believe that's a screen shot from an approved torrent on ptp, which movie? Also because you rolled the number of the beast i will mega something for you.
If you're still here what do you want?
You can invite annoymously like staff will know but it will just come up as invited by Anonymous
>tfw my inviters name may have actually been Anonymous
What's good (anymore in ahd maniac plus forum)? How many uploads do I need? Is it worth getting? I can upload 20 movies to ahd if it means first crack at btn when it opens up in April
Does mtv recruit at MaM?
>I've been a member at MaM 15 weeks
>I have 130 up 1.3gb down ratio of 66
>worst stats on any trackers, besides whatcuck
Fuck I need 6 months. How much more curry is freshon - I might actually go on IRC and ask. IPT isn't cutting it. I'm not AB and certainly not on the TPS meme-- is freshon a meme too?
>tfw comfy and ptp and no tv tracker
>Fucked up first torrents from Pornolab
>Lost the data from the drive I was downloading to
>Nothing to seed, need to upload because the limits been hit
What a shitshow. I was going to let those sit for a while seeding, now I have to upload something new to make up for it.
users currently can still invite but from what I have heard from a recruiter that wont be around for too much longer so get your invites now if you have a friend with one, if not you will have to get in through the official methods soon.
its not a crime depending on what country you're in.
Also, this is 4chan you literal dip, what the fuck would you have done back in the classic days of credit card number dumps and DDoS's?
>no one on WCD, PTP, BTN, AHD, or AB has offered an Emp invite yet
>top 5 porn actresses
holy shit EMP really is full of porn autists.
desu senpai, i've been watching porn for 15 years now and I couldn't tell you the name of even a single porn actress.
The AB admin Kotoko literally designed a large portion of the tracker backend, that is now being used by facebook for updating all the facebook servers globally, called Chihaya (named after the main character from Chihayafuru).
They might be weebs, but they have some damn good computer guys on staff and they tend to catch cheaters very quickly unless you are doing VERY small amounts of cheating.
saw this one in the open trackers thread on hdb, apparently a new scene site. signed up for the hell of it, and though i'll probably never use it, it actually looks pretty nice.
>owner literally ddosing himself with forced refreshes every 10 fucking seconds

How do you create screenshot comparisons of two encodes and source if one encode isn't the same resolution (cropped differently)
I know how to make an avs and compare source (source cropped resize.avs) to encode (encodeA.mkv)
and do the interleave function etc. If I put the second encode thats wider and taller in an avs and then resize it to match the others, am I going to be altering it (encodeB) too much for accurate comparison of quality's sake?
Examplea=import("cropped, resized source.avs").subtitle("Source", align=9)
c=import("EncodeB resized.avs").subtitle("EncodeB", align=9)
ffinfo(version=false, framenum=true, frametype=true, cfrtime=false, vfrtime=false, colorspace=false, colorrange=false, cropping=false, sar=false)
assuming EncodeB.avs contains just ffvideosource to the mkv and resizes it
Or is there a better way?
scaling does of course alter the video, so yes, i'd be careful to just do it to one, unless it's something specific you want to show and want to "optimize" it for those mouse over comparison sites.
yes, it's a scene site. not really useful unless you're not on any other trackers.
anyway, main point was to point out the frontend. this thing https://github.com/swetorrentking/rartracker
imo it looks pretty good.
Can someone understand please?
I was PU on What.CD. I had a notification filter for my favorite artists' new albums. I would get a little notification window every time one of them would have something new out.
At one point my ratio dipped below 1.0 and I was sent back to Member. Some weeks later I was PU again.
Ever since then I don't get the notification popups. I have the same notification filter, in fact I deleted it and created it again, but nothing. I have to go to the notifications section and personally check for stuff that the filter caught, instead of just being notified by the site.
What the fuck is going on?

I'm glad you asked.
I found this album in a sharethread on /mu/ a few weeks ago and wanted more people to hear it because it's super comfy.
Ernest Hood - 1975 - Neighborhoods
As the cover states, this album is made up of "musical pictures composed and performed by Ernest Hood." It features recordings of parents talking from the next room over laid over the TV sounds from that room and crickets chirping while a zither lazily plucks away. On other tracks it's the sound a train crossing makes and two teenage boys playing with a can fading out while soft, soothing synths (think C418 from the 70's) come in. There is such detail that you can close your eyes and feel the August heat and see the men hammering away on a roof while a mother stops to chat with another parent. The whole album is so effortless and simple and yet the effect is powerful. It's probably one of the best albums I've ever found in a sharethread.
Yeah, it would. I was almost considering doing saving frames individually of each one then resizing each to a common output display size like 720p but EncodeB isn't 16:9, it's like 1.723. So for comparison sake, I'd be altering their PAR when upscaling. There's is like 714x368 mine is 640x360 (I posted a screen they uploaded end of last thread- idiot took a jpg of their DAR (714x414)) I hate that people use and are encouraged to use handbrake.
>there should be an encoding general
Agreed. Doom9 is informative but operates like r/trackers. You have to lie about everything as if people doing this legitimately for studios need doom9
Wow, sounds great anon. Thanks for the tip. Field recordings + pleasant synths, a nice combo.
Can I make a small request to someone with a What account? The wiki said to do it if it's the only thing I can't find on rutracker.
>where did you get that mkv file from
Which one? You make it sound like you think I'm doing all this for an encode I didn't make, not even gonna comment on that if that's the case
A= (source) d2v .avs that I made from demuxing the VOBs
B = my encode (EncodeA) x264 output mkv
C = someone else's handjob mkv (EncodeB)
It's too complicated to elaborate on the specifics as my final mkv (will be) is actually the sum of the whole video encoded in 3 segments (each part has different cropping parameters- the handjob did a one crop fits all shit).
I apologize in advance for my incompetence, but I have a (semi-)related question and I would appreciate if someone could answer it, please.
There's torrent (a) of a movie, 261 files and 43.02 GB.
There's torrent (b) of the same movie, 3 files and 28.16 GB, the .mkv, .srt and .nfo.
I'm assuming (a) has better quality, but why does it have to so many files? I'm a bit lost when selecting the proper file to play the movie. Is there a proper way to play them?
silk186 was well known frogposter, now martianka is completely shitting over TPS.
Does anyone here can suggest just what the fuck is going on with my internet?
It seems whenever i try to download a torrent and the other computer in the network is also downloading something through direct download, my torrent speeds slow to a crawl.
And this happens even if the other computer is only using 10kb/s of bandwith to download files. It needs to be fully stopped before I can get decent speeds on the torrent again.
Reminder that private trackers may be entirely useless to you, and are not inherently better.
>get into What via interview thanks to /ptg/
>realize "keeping up with What.CD" is a very challenging chore
>search for whatever I want in whatever format and bitrate I want
>download instantly with 0.00% risk of ISP warning
>forget all about What
take it one step further. Take the soulseek(c) files and upload them to what.cd. You can mislabel the bitrate if you are in an obscure enough genre. Dont upload any lossless as FLAC you will get detected quickly. I got to power TM this way
Well, I did say MAY.
Clearly you have very, very obscure tastes, like local bands or something. Or maybe you just had a bad experience.
I can assure you that I've only had things queue a few times, and when that happens I just download from someone else. My download speed has been very good, average time to download a 320 Kbps CBR MP3 is only a few seconds. Maybe you're downloading GB+ albums.
And I hope you enjoy it anon. It's ambient/drone created with field recording and analogue synth textures. Despite the attention to detail and the microscopic technological sounds used, it's still very organic sounding.
Taylor and 12k and my favourite ambient musician and label respectively. It's good that you picked up on the album art because the aesthetic of the entire label is fantastic. Worth a dig if you find yourself enjoying Shoals. There's a collaborative album between Taylor Deupree and Marcus Fischer called Twine, that came out of the end of last year. It's composed of analogue tape loops and has a soft, lo-fi feel to it. It's all certainly more ambient than that Ernest Hood bit though. The synth part on that reminds me of Boards of Canada mostly (the combination of guitar is very Bibio, also).
Seeding 3k+ torrents and this is the best I get, fucking SHAM mate
>tfw dreaming about a gf that torrents with you and stays up late nights with you building buffer and checking out new content.
>And then you wake up and can't remember her face anymore.
Just kill me friends
If it's just been made up after a long time then they will keep the thread, do not worry. They will increase requirements if they need but don't pull the thread right after they submit. Good luck though to your friend.
I dunno what it is about ambient and "similar" genres (electronic-based experimental genres), but the album art is just so captivating to me. I like the art in the picture you posted as well. I actually grabbed it from a sharethread on /mu/ recently, and remember liking it.
I'm listening to the last track on Shoals now and I am glad I'm listening to it with headphones, because it's very enveloping. It's amazing how seamlessly it all blends together. I'm definitely feeling some more Deupree after this, gonna go back and check out Wood, Winter, Hollow.
Me and a few other anons were doing an /amb/ient general on /mu/ for a bit, a short while ago. It never really took off for a few reasons. Me and a couple of others were just discussing new 12k releases over and over, whilst others were popping in looking for reccs on the complete opposite end of the ambient genre. Seemed to be difficult to find a group of regulars with a similar taste because ambient as a genre is so broad.
I often find ambient album artwork captivating because it seems to me, more than a lot of other genres, that the artwork often contributes to, or at least compliments, the music. Both the art and the music are often abstract and textural, and the beauty is found in both the detail and the overall atmosphere.
Wood, Winter, Hollow is real /comfy/. There's some nice string sounds in there, and the title really sums up the theme of the album. If you liked Shoals, Marcus Fischer's Monocoastal is a good, similar album.
>tfw I want to get in BCG but I don't like being impure
Should I wait for GazelleGames?
>tfw had a plan to get mad buffer on ggn
>tfw had to go /impure/ to join bcg
>tfw bcg is even easier to get buffer on because i seed forever
>tfw bcg is up, ggn is not
meh, i'll take it
Anyone good at mathematics here?
What seed size do I need on PTP to be able to generate enough points to get 1TB upload's worth each month? Not counting bonus points from time seeded/amount of seeds.
>the complete opposite end of the ambient genre
Could you give an example?
And wow, I'm dumb. I was thinking of Snow (Dusk, Dawn), and I don't actually have Wood, Winter, Hollow. Have to snatch that one. However, I do have Twine. I loved the guitar-like sounds and how it feels like the pieces are glowing, like static on an old tube TV in a dark room. Music like this is perfect for nighttime, and I've been trying to put together a playlist of good late night music. Funny enough, Bibio - Fi is on that playlist. Not quite in the vein of Deupree, I know, but still, super comfy.
They gave everyone PU and below 2 slots. Elite+ got 2 invites. There's like infinite freeleeches uploaded so only a retard would have less than 1 ratio.
They coulda kept those slots. Nobody needs that shit.
>Not counting bonus points from time seeded/amount of seeds.
But that's not an added bonus; those rates are tied in with the BP system. So you have a fundamental lack of understanding from the get-go.
How do I get an Emp invite?
Is Emp worth joining if you mostly fap to teen girls? 18+ obviously
Or should I just continue waiting for threads on /b/
>How do I get an Emp invite?
you literally can't, the site doesn't have an invite system and they've closed applications for like a year now. They can't recruit from other trackers either due to their lack of invite system
Won't their userbase die off with that scenario?
Thank you for the response by the way.
Oh my bad, only <12 hours ago though.
>Users ranked Great Perv or lower will get 2 slots each. Learn more about slots here.
what the fuck sort of useless gift is this? Fucking Emp.
Eventually. It's not a long term thing, just brought about by unfortunate circumstances. Users who will let their accounts deactivate obviously weren't using them in the first place, though. So even though the user count may drop, the actual users remain constant
I don't need to because I'm already on the site, but I appreciate the concern
You need 3,472 BP/hr to get exactly 2.5 million BP per month. Spend the buffer to download poorly seeded remuxes/BD25/50's. They give crazy amounts of bonus points. Also, never, ever stop seeding, as in, don't turn your computer off at night, and keep torrents in your client for as long as possible (preferably never removing them). Keep in mind as well freeleech torrents will not reward bonus points while they are still freeleech (but Half leech and Neutral leech torrents will). Good luck and godspeed, anon.
>Could you give an example?
Lots of people were coming in and asking for stuff similar to Tim Hecker.
(if you're not aware of his work: https://youtu.be/zt5ZWdWewNM)
It's beatless music, generally regarded as ambient but for me it serves a different purpose. Rather than structure a space, and provide atmosphere, Hecker's stuff is very much 'active listening'. It's in your face and there's often melody. I suppose it's very musical ambient, as opposed to drone ambient. I like both, but I suppose I listen to more of the drone-y stuff.
Twine is great. One of my favourite albums from last year. I love Bibio too. Fi has some amazing stand out tracks, but Vignetting The Compost is my favourite of his. It's like the culmination of his purely folk-y sound before he started experimenting with beats and stuff on Ambivalence Avenue. His new single, pic related, makes me excited for his new album soon!
The larger the filesize, the larger the bonus for permaseeding. Invariably, larger files have fewer seeds, thus giving an even larger bonus.
I will refer you back to my previous post, wherein you show a fundamental lack of understanding of how the BP system works. Please also read /wiki.php?action=article&id=8
>he's not seeding petabytes on HDBits
Download and permaseed raw DVD images, these net you the best BP per GB amount
>Ever touched a woman?
Not that Anon but was just thinking about my last kiss. I could taste her lip balm for hours after, I never wanted it to leave.
Apparently from a friend.
>he's not on PTP
get a cúck seedbox and download MOTW
>paying a whopping 45$ just to access porn torrents
Damn I feel a little better about myself today that there's people out there more cucked than I.
are you anally hurt about something anon? do you wanna talk about it?
Are you implying that because it has a UNIX timecode, it's from 4chan?
1) That's not a UNIX timecode, at least not without some editing.
2) Even if it was from 4chan, that doesn't rule out the possibility of it originating on tumblr.
>Even if it was from 4chan, that doesn't rule out the possibility of it originating on tumblr.
Well fucking obviously, but the reality of this theory is that you could only know that for certain by lurking by lurking tumblr.
checkmate my genderfluid friend.
>change profile to "female" on MAM
>1000 karma points from at least 39 different users including 11 free leech wedges
>missing out on being SET FOR LIFE
it's literally a non-stop cuck show familia. I'm sitting on like 120GB of buffer...and that's not even counting all the bonus points and free leech wedges I have saved up from the cucks sending me. I literally don't ever have to worry about ebooks or audiobooks ever again.
If you are a small time seller, you can make $50-100 a month.
You have to actually check your buyers, or else you will get disabled. I found that my buyers are some of the best users I've invited
If you are a large seller (you have multiple accounts and people give you accounts/invites to sell) you can pull around $500 - 700. Profits are higher when rarer trackers give invitse. Like Pedro/Emp this month. I've already sold ~$300 worth of invites this week
I swear to god if somebody mirrored all of BTNs SD content to SDBits I would never touch BTN again in my life.
In fact, I'm going to.
Well either make a request for the 720p WEB-DL on AHD if it's not already there and I'll fill it or I'll give you an invite to IPT.
Here's what's on BTN.
Actually I'm out of IPT invites but someone else will have one.
