Not sure what private trackers are all about?
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

What.CD Interview Notes: http://pastebin.com/Wgz6T7ta
Use >>>/g/ptg as a link to find the /ptg/ thread.
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
Lots of trackers have cool irc channels. AHD is especially cool though, I idle there and occasionally write stupid things.
You and everyone else should join it and spam some memes. AHD irc loves memes.
Main channel requires an account on the site, but you can join it and spam #encoding if you like.
They're the ones that most frequently talk, but everyone is welcome! It's a very tolerant place.
>You and everyone else should join it and spam some memes. AHD irc loves memes.
I made it guys, passed my second interview attempt at what.cd. I feel so fucking great right now anons, after waiting for 9 hours I fucking made it.
How do I now get into the Art of Misdirection?
Golden Popcorn means the file is high quality. There's a team of people who check releases to make sure they live up to a set of standards when it comes to transparency and such, and if they're good, they get tagged with GP.
The releases that become GP are usually from other good private trackers, often HDBits and sometimes AHD and others.
Depends do you want enough ratio to just download what you want or ungodly buffer like hundreds of GB quickly?
For the first, just seed, make sure you are connectable. Upload a library CD once in a while. It can be anything
For the later, download freeleech and seed. Get a seedbox. Download random shit and seed it.
>He didn't make an account months ago when apps weren't disabled and left it parked after getting PU
Dont bother with old freeleech you wont get any buffer.
Dont get any 2015 flacs as there are 10 autist seedboxers grabbing them ensuring noone else sees any buffer from them.
I had the most luck looking at newly added torrents that noone else had snatched and that looked like someone else would want it. Its a gamble but its part of the fun.
he actually did it
the absolute madman
Thank you TARS, nice buffer btw
I'm guessing not, but is there any tracker I can get into with good ratio on Asiatorrents? For like 7 years I've been relying on DDL, but I realize that's not viable anymore.
I just want a good movie tracker for 80-current movies without having to go through what.cd.
Or is my only real option to get into what.cd, seed for 6months/1year and then apply for PTP/TehC?
If you're into Asian shit, you're probably better going the AB way
Apply for AB, don't be a retard and don't say you like shit like Naruto, One Piece, DBZ and the like
And no, you won't get anywhere directly with Avistaz, but you can probably use it as "Proof" in some places
Seedbox, grabbed all the freeleech, but most of the numbers I get from autodl FLAC and better.php'ing.
I don't use a VPN, now I just SFTP everything from the box to myself which is just as good if not better.
Damn, that's what I thought, but I figured it was worth it to ask. No, I don't want a private tracker for anime/asian stuff.
So getting into wcd and waiting for ages is the only way? That really feels like a last resort option since I don't really download music. Could I get anywhere with Animebytes instead? I'd rather try to get in there first. I do have a lot of old 1080p anime I could seed. Appreciate the help though!
No, they'll think you're too normie, or simply you don't watch enough anime to guarantee the use of the tracker [I think]
99% of the people that put those in the app get instantly rejected, maybe they have their reasons? [maybe they don't like those?]
Thanks, that's good to know.
So is AB the best alternative as a stepping stone besides wcd? Looks like PTP might recruit from AB, but I'm definitely gonna miss their next recruitment, so maybe I can try for TehC instead.
I mean of course I will spend time (probably around an hour) and write it seriously. I just don't know how they will look at my application if I don't have much experience. I'm not a great writer and I have a hard time expressing myself.
3 other what? I'm hesitant to post it elsewhere first. I don't want to fuck it up because I shared it with someone else.
why the fuck would you ban someone with these stats, and a legend user class
Classic beginner's mistake. Just grab every single staff pick and seed like a motherfucker.
Also check the forum for BP contests, pretty sure you can get like 20k for just saying hi
Anyone on Bibliotik or private trackers with lots of e-learning/test prep? Can you guys check for 2015 or newer MCAT test prep/learning (not just practice tests etc) materials? Anything earlier is useless, as they just recently changed the test completely this year!
If anyone would be willing to bring this stuff over to something like IPT or even public trackers etc... I'd be appreciative. I'd rather not have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on the overpriced cottage industry that has become graduate and professional test prep.
if you're on BTN as well, download these and cross seed for 100gb in bonus points every month.
finding something with a low number of seeders will give quite a lot of bonus points.
for example a 720p encode of a miniseries that's 23gb large with 18 seeders that i have been seeding for a month gives over double the amounts of points over a 33gb remux of that has ~100 seeders that i have been seeding for 4 months.
I want to watch The Man In The High Castle in the best available quality, BTN doesn't have an internal for it and the only HD release I could find is the 720p scene webrip from BATV and SERIOUSLY.
Should I watch that or wait for the internal?
I have a bunch of 10+gb torrents from bakabt, so I should be good.
What the fuck. People will surely beat me to uploading new torrents. Is there really no other way? Do I have to be a power user to get into other places or is having a good ratio fine?
>People will surely beat me to uploading new torrents
Anime is not the only thing to upload. The easiest way to get uploads is to download FLAC music and just transcode it to 320, v0, and v2. It's not hard.
AB accepts multiple groups. There's plenty of shit on Nyaa that isn't on AB.
Easy route is just to transcode FLAC into MP3, though. You can have your 10 uploads in about 20 minutes.
Search nyaa for new BD encodes. Some people are slow in uploading these to AB if they aren't the more anticipated BD releases for a show. You can go back and look at anime from like 2-3 seasons ago and see if all of their BDs are released. http://anichart.net/spring-15. Search on nyaa to see if they exist and then upload them to AB if they don't.
Or just take the easy way out and transcode music.
Thanks. I'll keep it in mind. Saved in a txt. Maybe I need some further assistance later. I'm quite surprised by how friendly and helpful this thread has been, it's appreciated.
how do i cancel my ptp account, it's to curry for my tastes
>tfw addicted to building buffer on AHD
>already have a 1TB of buffer
>mfw I sent a request for an AHD invite in the BTN forum and got invited the next day, and I've never posted a single thing in the forums
Nah. not me desu. i wouldn't save a still image as a gif.
>nearly been banned at least twice
don't make the mistake i did senpaitachi
He said some thing like this
"The way I see it is that you are not showing interest in the tracker or engaging in the forums"
My seedtime is over 3 weeks with over 100gb upload and 3gb download.
The reason I think is because my snatch count is only 28
>Just to make a semiofficial post on the situation here. SJ was an important member of Handjob. However, his mental instability constantly affected the site in a negative way and directly compromised site safety numerous times. He is no longer welcome here and will likely never be re-enabled.
>he severely compromised the well being of some members
kek, he must've had a spergout or something
not sure what exactly he did, though
> SJ behaved pretty strange yesterday. by creating such a topic and including those respected users, indeed was putting PTP at risk. i hope he'll come back one day as SJ we knew before.
all very vague
Complete newbie when it comes to private trackers. I simply had the will to join one for a while, yet my problem is my third world internet: I have only 0.5 of upload speed. Do many others rely on a seedbox?
GGn is down for over 10 days now because someone is "DDoSing" them...
Ask them for proof of a DDoS and you will get none. The site is run by braindead amateurs.
All of the site uploads is done by 4 people. GGn is the worst private tracker i have ever seen.
It's just waiting around for someone to get back to you.
>deluge still can't add torrents with special characters in the name
Is this just me or is it the case for everyone else?
>mfw Chunkyfaggot still hasn't replied
If you're in a third world country with a shitty connection, it's not a bad idea to invest in a seedbox.
I use a seedbox because I'm on a uni campus and while my uni doesn't rigorously block torrents, transferring several GBs of data will probably raise some redflags and I didn't want to go through the hassle. If you can afford it, then go for it. It's pretty useful and you can build massive buffers very easily in a short amount of time.
It's all pointless though.
AB is weeb infested, literally all these faggots do not give 2 shits about these trackers. If U2 opened a thread on AB it would get more traffic in 5 minutes than those other trackers in 5 years combined.
>could have sworn I sent off for a PTP invite three days ago
>it's not even been two
Chunky, please answer your PMs, if only for the sake of time passing in a regular fashion.
Seriously, this guy has to have an abstract kinda autism to make a recruitment thread and not check back in 2 days
As My title suggests I have a problem with how the Ratio works! Basically I download my movies which i would like to watch and I will seed for about 6 hours since I leave my pc on and I go to work.
But the main issue is why does my ratio drops down instead of increasing? I even have 7 bonus points! I would really appreciate it if someone can shed some light to this question so I can understand perfectly on how it Works? Thanx!
A ratio is a relationship between two numbers indicating how many times the first number contains the second. For example, if a bowl of fruit contains eight oranges and six lemons, then the ratio of oranges to lemons is eight to six (that is, 8:6, which is equivalent to the ratio 4:3). Thus, a ratio can be a fraction as opposed to a whole number. Also, in this example the ratio of lemons to oranges is 6:8 (or 3:4), and the ratio of oranges to the total amount of fruit is 8:14 (or 4:7).
I don't get why people say what.cd is hard, you need to study 3-4 pages, a mere 25gb upload and to convert 5 flacs to mp3, for fucks sake, you get access to most trackers and to what.cd of course which is the best music tracker
