Well ive tried out this private tracker stuff for a few months got into everywhere i want but its just a lot of hassle.
Set up sonarr and usenet and you basically do nothing after that, everything is available to watch on plex as its released and you do literally nothing. With torrents you always have the burden of holding on to the file and any asociated files and seeding them a certain amount of time and ensure you keep enough buffer to download the next thing etc. Different sites have different rules for how long to seed etc with the threat of banning or download priveledge removed if you fuck up in anyway.
I can see the appeal of "ranking up" and earning fictional online "promotions" for people that dont have jobs and dont get out much but id rather have something that just werks.
Yeah your'e right mate I don't have a job, don't leave the house for weeks at a time. In fact I haven't spoken to an actual female that wasn't related for about 6 years now.
But I'm TM and I'm better than you scene scrub AHHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA
You dont have to rank up. The pyramid is a meme. You dont get banned or overseeding. You can use sonarr with private trackers if you install Jackett. Anything else I can spoon feed you, today?
>With torrents you always have the burden of holding on to the file and any asociated files and seeding them a certain amount of time and ensure you keep enough buffer to download the next thing etc.
And? What's the problem? Don't you have a job where you can afford having a huge hard drive? It's a burden to leave a torrent client running, now?
>Yea but you still have to keep them seeded and layed out with additional files and named the way the torrents are. Its just a massive burden.
How the fuck is leaving my torrent client on a massive burden?
Is black cats still alive and does anywhere have unlimited invites? Please Christ somebody answer me.
>sure, you have to know specific people though
I don't know anybody or even use the forums to get invites and I got into HDBits.
They recruit anybody who has proven themselves to be willing to upload lots of torrents and download 1TB minimum on their other tracker accounts.
It's not hard to join HDBits if you are an active contributor.
So stop lying.
i still use uTorrent 2.2.1. I have about 15k torrents seeding.
It seems to be less popular these days. any reason I should be switching to Deluge or qB? Both were laggy pieces of shit above 3k torrents when I used them years ago.
Deluge shouldn't be used for that, it's a racing client not a long term high volume client. Honestly just stick with 2.2.1 if you're on Windows since it seems to be stable as fuck with huge amounts of torrents and seeds just fine.
>I can play ratio with a seedbox but actually making content is impossible with my shitty 0.80MB upload connection at home.
Are you retarded? Cross seed from one tracker to another with your seedbox. Upload lots of torrents, reach a high userclass and download at least 1TB and you will get into HDBits without any issue.
The only thing keeping a person from joining HDbits is the unwillingness to upload torrents.
>>It seems to be less popular these days. any reason I should be switching to Deluge or qB? Both were laggy pieces of shit above 3k torrents when I used them years ago.
Don't do it. rtorrent and transmission are the only Linux clients that can handle that load.
I could cross seed but surely anything I COULD upload to HDBits already has been? Or I'll be beaten to it.
Unless you mean on some lesser tracker, in which case which are you talking about to dl 1TB from?
>I could cross seed but surely anything I COULD upload to HDBits already has been? Or I'll be beaten to it.
I'm talking about cross-seeding from one lesser tracker to another tracker to get the stats needed for HDB to even look at recruiting you, ya derp.
It's not fucking hard to upload torrents. You just have to put in some time and do it before other people do it, and that's not very hard on PTP. There's tons of torrents that take hours for people to upload, and even some obscure movies that don't get uploaded at all.
To get into HDB, you need to do the following:
* Have a 6 month account at a major tracker
* Reach a high userclass like Elite or TM which needs dozens and dozens of uploads.
* Download 1TB
* Upload 1TB
* Have an average seedtime of 1 month or better. ( to keep seedbox hogs out)
* Not be warned.
* Be prepared to be asked for profile links to other trackers even after you send the recruiter your PM and to not be warned on those trackers.
>>you don't need 1TB download or 1TB upload or a 'dozen of uploads' to get into HDB
Yes, you do, unless somebody invites you. I was recruited with these conditions. For some trackers, they may be different, but I described it pretty accurately.
> month seedtime
>fuck i got like 1 week
If you don't have at least 1 month seedtime, you will never get into HDBits or any tracker like HDbits.
I suggest you seed 1 month minimum. I personally have 5 months average seedtime and they took me in immediately.
>Have an average seedtime of 1 month or better. ( to keep seedbox hogs out)
Oh that's what that's for. Nothing stopping me getting ratio with seedbox and just saving stuff to my own pc for seedtime though.
This is exactly true.
Make sure you have a large seeding size as well.
This is going to be a while.
Are you silly? Upload ONE ANYTHING from the sites I mentioned AND GET 35000 YEN FROM ONE SINGLE UPLOAD. Then after you stop being as slothful as me, upload like 9 more things and hit PU if you want it, ensuring time req met.
One thing you learn very quickly on trackers is lots of people have random shitloads of buffer they splurge on everything that moves especially AB.
Not the same anon, but why not? Nigger in 4chan is not offensive. Ask chunky to stay off 4chan if he doesnt want to be called nigger.
I have been called nigger here countless times. Get over it, faggot.
I'm not silly, but maybe you can fuck me silly. I'd almost feel embarrassed uploading something shitty then go on to ask about points. Might just try to upload 10 shitty things and hope I can seed 10gb.
Even after I reach PU, do I have to have been a member for a certain amount of time to be recruited for movie trackers? (PTP or TehC).
first = print_buffer(first, last, " [%c%c R: %4.2f",
rpc::call_command_string("d.tied_to_file", rpc::make_target(d)).empty() ? ' ' : 'T',
rpc::call_command_value("d.ignore_commands", rpc::make_target(d)) == 0 ? ' ' : 'I',
(double)rpc::call_command_value("d.ratio", rpc::make_target(d)) / 1000.0);
When you staff a tracker, you can make your own decisions as to how to deal with users. We don't allow calling staff the N word no matter where you say it because we don't want that kind of person on our tracker.
This matter is final.
24, but I just became a member. I'm only seeding stuff that I grabbed from other places. I don't really feel like downloading a lot since I don't watch anime anymore. I'm sure I'll get there eventually, so no worries. If I seed 24/7 for 2 weeks I'll get 4gb in BP. So I only need to seed ~6gb, surely I'll get there. Worst case scenario, I guess I'll have to contact people for points for first upload.
am I cancer if all I do is download from Nyaa and bakabt?
I do at least upload a decent bit (10MB/s upload so figure might as well give back a bit). Have around a half TB this month uploaded.
Talk about Natural selection... LOL I hope this is true and results in another treeban.
scihd=sciencehd= that open application elearning tracker? they have invite forums??
Why the fuck did I waste my time getting into What?? You mean to tell me I could have been the comfort guy without having to learn how to rip a cd you are never even going to listen to!
FFS I took the test twice wasted a day in IRC and even gave $5 to some hoodrat selling rap/gospel CDs on the street so that he could get high on crack while I was trying to make power user.
The stuff on Baka isn't bad quality generally and they always have seeds, but Nyaa is certainly hit or miss on quality/seeders.
I guess I just have no clue where to start finding a good anime private tracker or how to get into it.
I just don't wanna bring attention to my shitty (I assume, haven't uploaded yet. Also anxioous about that) uploads and come begging for points. They are all gonna know I just wanna reach PU status and don't plan to become a serious uploader.
>Why the fuck did I waste my time getting into What?? You mean to tell me I could have been the comfort guy without having to learn how to rip a cd you are never even going to listen to!
You should have listened to PSPG.
Reading the OP and it looks to be rather difficult to even try getting into a private tracker without knowing someone already in.
I have to interview for a site I will never use (what.cd), just so I can POTENTIALLY get an invite to AnimeBytes?
I can see why most people dont bother.
Occasionally, trying to save myself recently because I am getting a GearVR. I want to jerk off to VR girls.
Fair enough, I'll check back more frequently but I hardly see the point in turning the applications on/off that frequently, all it does is fuck with legit applicants.
Why don't you join Oppaitime then? It's a good place to learn and has good invite threads to other places.
>but I hardly see the point in turning the applications on/off that frequently, all it does is fuck with legit applicants.
To stop them from getting snowed under applications? Patience is a part of the application process.
I'll invite you to AB if you list your top 3 anime and a se tence why you like them.
And yes this is a serious offer, despite what the OP says. AB is not as strict because no one gives a fuck about anime in the real world. Unlike TV/Movies
Why ChunkyLover? Why give that fucker the recruitment thread when he doesn't do FUCK ALL?!
well if you are being serious...
Top 3 is a tough choice, especially if I am going for ALL time favorite Animes.
This is a fairly personal list and I dont expect your top 3 to match mine.
1. Overlord (2015): I know this one just came out, and it's another one of the MMO-types. BUT, I felt overlord really captured something different about the genre, and while it may only be #1 in my list because it is also the most recent, it really was a very well done first season in my opinion.
2.Chihayafuru(2013): This show is one I originally was unsure about, it being an anime about Kurata (japanese traditional card game), it isn't the most action packed anime out there, but it makes up for it with excellent pacing and good plot.
3. Planetes(2003): I mainly liked it for the characters, very well done and a good compliment of mixing archetypes. The animation itself was also well done and enjoyable to watch. Overall def one of my favorite, even if it isn't a stand out anime.
I could keep going, and it was tough enough choosing only 3, it would honestly be easier to make a top 20 or top 25 list.
You know what, you guys are cool. Don't go to AHD recruitment forum tomorrow.
Oh senpai, you probably shouldn't have posted an email with your real name on 4chan. This is why I recommended IRC.
That anon probably was serious and you probably will get your invite but RIP in pieces all the same
>read the fucking rules
Seconding this. This is really important if it's your first real tracker.
We get some mad edgelords in this thread sometimes and I wouldn't like them to have my real name, I was just looking out for him.
Been running over the what interview prep site and noticed a global rule is no VPN's for using the site. I guess I understand it but I use a VPN almost always. Can I use a VPN when downloading after accessing the site?
I hope you like AB and that it's the start of an amazing tracker journey for you desu.
>Can I use a VPN when downloading after accessing the site?
Yes, you can use a VPN for your torrenting.
Also an important distinction here is that they don't like shared IP VPNs for browsing the site.
If you use your own static one (like a VPS/Seedbox) for browsing the site you're fine. If you choose to do this though perhaps send a staff PM to let them know if you're a new account.
Are you /ipfs/bro that I directed to the interview prep site?
>no news anywhere.
Yes there is, look at their twitter.
they post on twitter and leddit. GGn staff is fucked; there's only really one high-level staffer who's still around. All the new torrent mods were recruited because the older staff have stopped giving a single shit
i mean, you're right, but that's pretty much completely unrelated to what op was asking
I have a question about 312c:
Nothing personal, just curious. (:
Are you connecting to the internet from the Moon?
It's about his gentle, reasonable behavior
Do interviewers get suspicious when you take a long time to answer on w.cd? I have a text to speech program and was wondering if they would think i was underprepared or checking notes throughout the interview.
i don't remember exactly, but i think it was like 10/15/20 minutes for each set of questions. it doesn't take form as a conversation (except maybe some extra question at the end), so some delay before you answer is expected and not suspicious at all. if the limits seems difficult, i would mention it before the interview begins, you might get some extra time.
why fuck db9
i want to get into db9 so badly
so much jungle
They banned me because a friend I invited screwed up. He shared one exclusive to some shit tier tracker. They found out with his username, banned him and me. The staff would not even speak to me, fuck them, they can go die.
Yeah they are fucking weirdos about that. I read a thread why it is a thing once and it was something like 'this track is so rare it might be traced back to me' and various other stupid excuses.
Oh well I just don't share anything from there.
im in trackers for like about >5 years, but just recently got intrested in another ones besides whatcd and local ones
i know that there was time that db9 was open sigup for a bit ;_;
Truth is WCD has most of what is on db9, with some exceptions. 5-6 months ago someone was looking for some obscure tune and it wasn't on WCD but was on db9 and it got mega'd on here. But I couldn't name an example off the top of my head.
Mostly it's just nice to have it all in one place.
Then you are on your way.
db9 is back up by the way.
I don't really have advice other than someone very kind found me and offered it, because we were talking music and he knew I was a good user elsewhere. I didn't even know he had it/was on it. And again, lots of the music is on WCD. I'm still waiting for a chance to really go digging on db9. I did find a gem the other day though.
i agree me friend very good torrent site im god leacher here,, i like it very much yes i like my people i like my torrent site if you need any help or job pleas email me
>someone uploaded a 175GB 4K Web-DL of the Jessica Jones show on AHD
I'm almost tempted to cross-seed it from BTN from dem BP
Not a private tracker, but torrent client question; I've been trying to get rtorrent to work, but the speeds are super slow, and it keeps saying "couldn't resolve host name." Any ideas how to fix this?
.:+luca:. well I'm going to ask it on the /g/ thread and make a strawpoll

Guess who's never, ever, ever getting back together (with a PTP account)

Are you even going to engage Drizzy in a rap battle?
Yeah I know, I don't know what the fuck went wrong. I was on it before the seeder stared seeding with 60 other people. Torrent went quite slowly and at first I was only on 0.3 for 50% of it.
Can someone explain to me who the fuck this guy is and why he matters?
According to the popular vote he is a hugless, kissless, shut-in virgin
He's kind of a whiny baby desu.
Like, I can understand that he might get mad about people asking repetitive questions when he was a mod on that subleddit, and at one point I probably would have responded similarly to him, but I kind of grew out of that years ago.
>Congratulations for losing your account on PTP, too.
3/10, it'd be funnier if I actually had one.
>Okay I gathered that much, but why do people hate him?
Because he's a whiny bitch who power trips a lot.
>Did he used to come on here and tripfag or something?
No, he was a mod on r/trackers, though, but he lost his status because he was being too much of a shithead.
So what? That's pretty much transparent, right?
Okay I remember seeing some of that but never knew what was going on because I authentically don't use reddit. But I lurk here pretty often and never seen 4chan exactly attacking him (besides a few snide comments or laffs), so why is he here busting this boards balls?
Then he just got run off or what? He was a reddit mod which I'd tend to think would make him pretty anti 4chan (or maybe that's imaginary and there isn't hate the other way)
>Okay I gathered that much, but why do people hate him?
He's extremely aggressive and insults people for no reason. He's also power tripping like crazy and a huge cunt to everyone he talks to.
See >>51541227 for an example of what a petty bitch he is.
>even gave $5 to some hoodrat selling rap/gospel CDs on the street so that he could get high on crack while I was trying to make power user.
/ptg/ goes hard in this shit. Seed or die bitches. Out here uploading that real street shit.
Sup 312c, luca here,
so... do you agree with the popular opinion about the source of your anger or is it wrong?
Anyway there is no need to hurt each other, you can solve your anger issues instead of fueling them with all this hate in your heart :3
>mfw 312kek just made even more people hate him
>they're going to be fucking with him for ages
Yep I messaged him an hour after he made the recruitment thread on HDB and I still haven't gotten a word from him. It must be a requirement to be mentally ill in order to become PTP staff.
ptg senpai can you check if this book is on Bib
"obfuscated C and other mysteries", I have been looking for it for a while now, only found 1 link but the book was apparently deleted for muh copyright
>Actually looks pretty normal
It becomes more apparent when you scroll down. He posts nothing but negative and downright hateful comments.
Look at this post of his for example. Psycho stalker shit.
And that's exactly how he behaves when interacting with users on trackers. In this very thread, he killed a user's PTP account, because he felt insulted by him. The user didn't break any rules, he didn't even excessively insult him, considering how 312c behaves. He's such an obnoxious, insecure cunt.
