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.

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
Download all the massive torrents and seed them for a few weeks. Most it not all of the siterips are freeleech.
Been uploading some stuff from various web stores to what recently. I'm about to upload an album that I got from another tracker but it has no .log or .cue file, the original source is a CD so I'm not certain what to do.
Spectral analysis in Audition looks okay. auCDtect doesn't seem to agree, coming up with MPEG 100%, CDDA 43% and so on. Is it okay to upload it and make transcodes anyway? Thanks, I'm really new to uploading and appreciate any help.
I've only downloaded 650GB so far, haven't got one yet. I doubt it though.
Okay I've seen a lot of these op images. I remember the bottom right image but what the literal fuck is that thing holding the ptg sign?
Is that in reference to a tracker or is OP just on crack and added legs to a minion?
That post about the stds from dog had my sides rupturing. That's got to be a whatcuck
So I just added everything from the pics in a hurry. I have one computer with utorrent and another with qbitorrent for seeding. If I download the same file and seed in both clients in two different download locations, thats fine right?
Thanks dude. I tried using that multidownloader to grab a bunch of stuff for the other machine and figured there would be some repeats. Didnt want to have to sort out and dig through everything
I eyeballed it. You know how if you label in something in rutorrent 3.7, it will show the filesize of the group? Well I labeled all the pics. I saw that my ratio across the group was around a 7. If you signed up for it you can use What's Sherlock
The arrow job is to make thicker flow for the Ethernet cable so it can send more packets through the torrent and directly to your computer.
The red "V" shape means that has been Victorious by making the Internet tubes wider and thus the upload speed is considerable faster than full uploading speed.
It just works.
Shut up you little shite.
Why haven't you copped a sweet AHD encode of /ptg/'s official show yet?
What quality has the new Iggy Pop album leaked in?
Anyone wanna take a quick peek on WCD?
Nope, that's just the single.
Post Pop Depression is the name of the album.
Thanks for checking though!
It's out there apparently. People have posted leaks on Jewtube and people on r/qotsa claim to have downloaded it. Weird that it's not on WCD. I guess I just have to wait a few hours.
I think it's out there in some capacity. I appreciate the help though, guys. It will probably be widely available in a few hours at least. Not really a Iggy Pop fan, but I love everything Josh Homme is involved with. I hope the album is good, because I already have tickets to see them.
mfw I just got 10 Gb of buffer from the freeleech and most of the torrents I snatched are active
>I'm not pure on what
is it too late senpaitachi? I got it after ptp. I think I'm stable even when only pure on 3 trackers including comfy. I'm part of large trees on various second tier trackers
>about to put all fl torrents on seedbox
>delete torrents from past fl
>put new torrents on
>mfw 40gb free
how fucking dense are you. theres even an option to turn off loli if its illegal in your country. OT tracks hentai and jav. only thing that may be illegal is downloading files that you do not own but no one does that.
>4 hours late last WCD FL
>only got 25gb upload
>4 hours late again this FL
>barely get half a gb
I'm fucking tired of this bullshit. How do people get it fast? Do they have auto-dl snatching it the moment it's announced on IRC? Do they even announce the staff pick FL?
Subscribing/RSS are useless because I don't have a phone, and I don't even think they support sending that shit through 3g.
>Why don't you have a phone?
Because I have no friends. You normalfag red.ditors should fuck back to re.ddit.
>I have 200gbs upload to spare on AB
Step up anon.
Now, seriously, what have you watched that you liked, obviously, so I can recommend you something.
How do have so much? Inf seeding? My HDD is pretty small so I can't do that much.
Anyway I like Cowboy Bebop a bit. Lain is pretty good tho a bit too whiny. If you know some good shows from the 80s then that's great too.
Also, not from the 80's but watch Ghost in the Shell, although if you find Lain a bit too whiny then watch the tv series first and if you like it then watch the movies that are from the mid 90's.
I would have more, but I have donated 1M+ yen to the freeleech pool and I've send some hundreds of shekels to some users
>tfw the anime you're watching defaults to english dub every episode and you keep having to manually change it but sometimes you forget and hearing the dub makes you die a little inside
>the face when there was interview after all but I was scared of socializing with the interviewer and waited years to be tricky person and grab the opportunity rather than be a social person and make the opportunity by myself much sooner
>tfw none of my friends but one will play ptg
>tfw I was happy his ratio is up from 0.3
>tfw no friends to share ptp & btn with
Screenshot of recent TehC user classes plz
I lied in mediainfo, upload was more popular than I thought.
>tfw one of 49 snatchers will likely noticed it was transcode. Got a big bounty.
kek before you name call consider the fact that the nigger who requested it was banned 3 years ago
Filled request on whatcuck with fake account and wrong file. Immediately used it to vote on 5 separate requests I filled from non VPS account.
>tfw that was a month ago and got away with a 2TB buffer
Was worth the 3 hours i had to idle in irc for that account.
I disagree. I just got in.
That was easy and painless.
Any beginner tips?
>Is there a FL pick every week?
No, keep dreaming, on especial occasions only (like this one) and every now and then there are picks from the staff. I would say there's a freeleech every 2 or 3 months.
Question for the audiophiles:
I'm currently re-downloading all of my music in FLAC off What.CD so that I can replace my V0s. I will keep the FLAC as my main archive but I plan to encode them all to Vorbis for my phone to save precious space.
As somebody who doesn't consider themselves an audiophile, what quality would you recommend for portable listening? I've heard 128kbps VBR Vorbis is transparent except for maybe a few troublesome songs.
I generally use V0 as my minimum. it's ~250kbps.
Though I guess 128kbps is probably fine for certain types of music. Something like classical however would suffer noticeable lack of quality.
128kbps vorbis-aotuv-lancer is certainly not transparent, all though it may well be if you're playing your music with a phone and cheap earphones.
The secret is to ABX yourself. Personally, for my equipment, I like Vorbis q 7.
>v0 if you use some shitty earplugs, v2 or 320 if you use CIEMs or actual headphones.
I don't know who you are or where you came from, Anon, but I need you to think really hard about what you just said and re-evaluate whether you should being giving advice to others.
If it happens again I'm writing you up.
V0 is what I currently have on my phone and I'm satisfied with it but I want to know specifically about recommended quality for Vorbis, not MP3.
Thanks for the Vorbis info. I can't really do ABX until I get a proper listening setup. I've currently only got a pair of gaymen headsets that rattle in the cans.
For the record, when I get my tax return I'll be getting these plus a portable Fiio amp/DAC combo. They'll mostly be for home listening but I plan to occasionally use them on the go.
I thought Opus was designed for super low power devices like phones and sacrifices quality for it. Do I have Vorbis and Opus mixed up?
>Thanks for the Vorbis info. I can't really do ABX until I get a proper listening setup. I've currently only got a pair of gaymen headsets that rattle in the cans.
No, no. no.
Anon, ABX with the EQUIPMENT THAT YOU WANT TO LISTEN WITH
Doesn't that make sense?
>I thought Opus was designed for super low power devices like phones and sacrifices quality for it. Do I have Vorbis and Opus mixed up?
Opus is Xiph's new replacement for Vorbis.
I'm and audiophile, I have 3+ years of experience with music format and portable audio and headphones from entry level to high top tier.
FLAC for stationary DAC/AMP or dedicated music player.
mp3 v0 or Vorbis@196kbps for Smart Phones.
What.CD quick bonus tip:
Download only "Original" (first pressing of the album) releases when possible. (with small exceptions to Japanese issues)
>Doesn't that make sense?
Yes, and if you'll notice in my post, I'll be getting a proper setup in a few weeks which will be both for home and portable listening. I was just saying I'll do some ABX tests once I get my equipment in the mail.
Nobody on torrent sites can crack software products except for a few half assed idiots on CGpeers so you'll likely end up with malware installed anyway. Just use ChingLiu.
There is only one tracker dedicated to gfx which didn't get their database apparently wiped yesterday (kek). It's CGpeers, not really any different from public trackers, it's ratioless, literally unmoderated and features a lot of shitposting from normies who think that piracy is bad. Admins seem to care about the DDL forums (cgpersia) much more than CGpeers and cgpersia tends to have more actual stuff than the tracker. Most artfags like DDL more than torrenting anyway.
It's open signup so just signup to cgpeers whenever it's open.
step it up senpai
As soon as I start questioning whether continuing to seed the latest staff picks was doing me good, another batch gets FL'ed.
Though really, at my rate of 14GB in 5 days and 12GB in 4, how long do I need to be keeping these things? It's not like I'm actually listening to any of it.
For maximum buffer: wait until they get removed from neutral leech
If you are impatient just remove it whenever because there's no HnR rules. Do whatever is comfy with you or just milk it.
No idea I'm sorry. I don't really update my adobe stuff. The only thing I know about the scene is this: https://opentrackers.org/where-pirated-content-comes-from/
Ideally you want to find a db which publishes md5 hashes of scene releases and match that to kat but I have never been able to find one.
What are you talking about? I just got access to WCD 2 hours ago. Downloaded some FL picks, went to take a shower, back now with 2gb buffer.
I don't understand people who say WCD is hard. Am I missing something?
Can someone post their rtorrent settings? For some reason every single torrent downloaded is active and connects to 100 peers and it all crawls to a halt. Ive set download slots to 10 and that does fuck all.
Its fucked mate. Keeps crashing. Restart the service and the last 30 or so torrents that have already downloaded restart and download again and any changed settings get reset. Fuck knows.
Cause you ratio cucked around on what and PTP is hard as well cause leeching activity is lower compared to the seedboxes there, but on BTN is easy to seed since regular users cap their up speed .
If you have to ratio cook just cheat instead, it means that the tracker rules are broke.
You just seed, you dingus. Over the years I've built up more upload than I could ever need. If it's really that difficult, then find the top 5 leeched torrents on the site and download/upload them. Building ratios is the easiest thing in the world.
>find the top 5 leeched torrents on the site and download/upload them. Building ratios
^^ See >>52916104
Top leeched ?You're suppose to download stuff you want to hear/see?! Not to make seeding a goal of it's own!
And ratio is suppose to be a control mechanism so you don't act like a jerk and limit your upload.
BUT the only jerks on WC.Dicks are the staff that have few freeleech and no bonus point system when they have tons of seedboxes but they just don't give a shit about the average user that cucks and whores himself at any staff PRICKS just to survive.
You slavshits are the bane of the average torrent user. There's nothing wrong with uploading something that other anons might enjoy. Hardcore ratio cucking is deplorable, but torrents are used to share data. God forbid you actually fucking share shit.
If it really bothers you that much, then cheat like other anons said.
WC.d has the best anticheating scripts ever!
>There's nothing wrong with uploading something
True, but there is something wrong with downloading something you don't actually need just so you can later download something that you will need.
I don't think the many public and private trackers were founded around your needs, anon. Also, you don't need any of this shit.
I hope you look up an obscure film/album in the near future, and it has 0/2
>I disagree with a random anon!
>I sure showed him!
So guys, i need your help(idk if it was already asked and is accesible without killink myself)
I recently joined AB as my first Private tracker.
however, how the fuck can i maintain a ratio if nobody is leecing anything.(and no , i dont have acces to stuff i can upload)
>tfw got really lucky.
Upload before this was 30GB or something, now I'm a power user.
