>not exclusively using private trackers for all your torrent needs
Remember, staff and their snitches watch these threads, so if you care about your account, don't invite out in the open.
Public Plebs, please stay out. Your kind wouldn't last on a private tracker anyway.
This. Fuck those communists and their public things.
Contrary to private trackers that need a lot more hours wasted in interviews, begging in fourums and irc channels and looking out for people enjoying private trackers incorrectly? For free?
How am I supposed to get in if no one will give me an invite?
I'll never understand you self-important retards, it's a torrent not a fucking job
I do have a job though, looks like your only counter-argument has fell through.
come on 312c why do you keep posting here ?
It's downloading and uploading, a program LITERALLY does it for you.
How can you be a retard with torrents
>>How can you be a retard with torrents
There's tens of thousands of people who are retarded on private trackers and have gotten banned. There's many rules to follow to ensure the quality of the tracker and if you break them, you're shown the door.
Quality can't deprecate for digital goods you retard
Quality of what service you moron, it's downloading, not being served a meal
did EMP sec breach not scare anyone else off from private trackers?
hurdur lets keep a log of your downloads until the police bust us or some mod sells out to the copyright holder.
hurdur lets not let people delete their accounts just disable them but still keep records of all DLs
>QoS mattering for torrents
Fugg I'm in tears
I bet you guys download FLAC
[spoiler]Your next line is "I bet you download YIFY rips"[/spoiler]
There should be some sort of app that manages your accounts and torrents and shit. Maybe with a trading platform, stock exchange ("whoa, WCD is worth 2.78 BTN today, buy now!!1") and bitcoin integration.
>having tons of garbage re-encodes on your tracker instead of only allowing original encodes so that people only seed the very best copies
And this is why you public plebs are idiots.
Yes its the source of all these spam threads. one time the OP even admitted he was a mod there after defending the ocd mod there 312c like he was his family or someshit
and the rest of the pro-tracker autistic arguments come probably from the same guy that makes them
The thing that puts me off private trackers is that they log your IP and you're not allowed to use a proxy to log in (what.cd). If you ever get caught a IP and an account is more of a smoking gun than just an IP like it is on public torrent sites. Plus if private sites get raided because they store everything about you you'll get fucked...
Anyone want to convince me that I'm safer with private trackers?
>one day I receive via an IRC friend an invite to what.cd
>decide to check it out
>massive amout of flac music
>download a few popular albums to try
>slow as fuck
>stay in seed for months
>no upload because no leechers
>one day I search a rare album in flac
>go to what.cd
>"your account is suspended due to inactivity"
I don't see the point in these elitists private trackers. The base of their spirit is to share their passion for free with anyone, but almost no one can join their circlejerk club and they use the first reason they found to kick you out.
Also they don't protect you at all from NSA and other spying agencies, because to protect yourself from those agencies you need to hide your traffic with a VPN, not clarely connecting to a little unknown server.
Private trackers offer no more than public trackers except less seeders, hateful and useless communities, and require you to give your email address.
Public trackers > pirvate trackers.
VPNs banned from a lot of privfate trackers so you still have evidence of having an account on the tracker, and having downloaded the torrent file. Ofc you only download the file via vpn or seedbox but thats only half the equation
I'm not butthurt at all for being suspended (though when I saw the message I was a bit angry).
The rules you mention are simply stupid, and that's why I don't go on private trackers anymore.
Why do they force their users to connect regularly ? To maintain their community ? Heck, not even 5% actually do something more than just leeching and seeding (when they can seed, which is almost impossible on a tracker fulfilled with seeders). It's just a stupid trick to keep their statistic good and masturbate when seeing them "hurr durr we're private tracker number one fuck yeah".
I always found what I searched on public trackers, so per experience I can tell you there is absolutely no advantage on private trackers.
>when I saw the message I was a bit angry
Haha. I'm glad you are banned.
>I always found what I searched on public trackers, so per experience I can tell you there is absolutely no advantage on private trackers.
That always applies when you have shit taste.
Is 312c the most insufferable cunt in the tracker world? I seriously feel like taking a weekend and ruining his fucking life. He leaves so much info via reddit that it should be simple. I actively cheat on PTP to spite him, but it's boring as no one has caught me for over 3 years. What.CD were the only ones who banned me, and that was 2 years ago and i've been cheating at lower speeds since getting a new account and they've not clocked on.
>tfw reset router, take what.cd interview, cheat ratio with slow speeds on freeleech + staff picks, upload a few low quality shit from bandcamp and get access to invite forum
>tfw get accounts on various trackers, cheat my way through to their invite forums and branch out
>tfw use different username each time
>if i'm caught at any time (once i flashed a few petabytes accidentally when i input the numbers wrong), reset router and repeat
>tfw seed like fuck on IPT
>over 10TB buffer with 50,000 bonus points
>tfw hit n run on 1TB movie packs (freeleech) and pay them off with 50 bonus points
lel, you're not seeing any screenshots in case i fuck up and display something that traces back to me. Have my list though, i cheated to almost all of these trackers apart from MTTV (new) and CBT (got invited by friend), STP (open signups when they started) and one or 2 others.
14K bonus points and 6TB buffer. Which one do you think i'm gonna use, IPT?
So are there still HDBits.org recruitment threads in the highest user class forums on BtN and PtP? I've heard a mod at PtP hint at that pretty heavily, but I've also heard they stopped recruiting.
AFAIK they have outright stopped open recruitment. Its sort of a, need to dig around and find someone to ask, and have godlike stats, before you can get int.
Kind of dumb if you ask me. The site is amazing, but it's choking itself by being so difficult to get into. So many people just download their releases elsewhere, and then seed on hdbits.
Uh basically just post on PtP and BtN and suck peoples dicks. It's easy, find well known members posts in the forums and reply to them agreeing with them. They will start getting familiar with your username. Then start going onto the IRC channels, say a few things every now and then, and slowly talk more and more in there. Eventually your nose will be so covered in their shit that they won't be able to distinguish the end of their ass from the start of your nose. Around then is when you get invited.
It seriously is. Don't believe me? Search up these hard to get into trackers on the forums, every single person who mentions being in one has a lot of posts, or is active on IRC. It happens on IRC all the time, stick around in a channel for a while, like 3 months talking to people in there, and eventually somebody will mention one of these trackers. Just say something like "I'll get in there one day, its like the el dorado of X" and you typically have someone PM you asking if you want an invite. This is how I got into Exigo and DB9.
My UNI seems to be throttling connections via SFTP so I can't download files from my seedbox. Would it help to change the port or just use FTP instead or is there another alternative I can use? I've tried changing the port to 443 and there was a slight improvement but it wasn't huge. Thanks
WHAT.CD HAS 16 YEAR OLD BOYS CONDUCT INTERVIEWS.
IF YOU INTERVIEW WITH WHAT.CD, YOU COULD BE SPEAKING TO A 16 YEAR OLD BOY WHO DECIDES WHETHER YOU JOIN WHAT.CD OR NOT.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT MY SIDES
Someone explain how bibliotiks ratio system works to me.
If I maintain 100 uploads, I dont have a required ratio. I get that, but as I understand this, I can still lose PU/Elite perks because of ratio?
That seems really fucking weird.
>>If I maintain 100 uploads, I dont have a required ratio. I get that, but as I understand this, I can still lose PU/Elite perks because of ratio?
Yeah, those are 2 different factors. Your ratio won't affect your account from being completely disabled but you will be demoted to the lowest kind of userclass if your ratio drops below what is needed to maintain that userclass.
You will be able to use your account forever, but you will always be the lowest class if your ratio is 0.01, for example.
If you only maintain 99 uploads all of a sudden, you get locked from downloading, and if you don't fix your ratio, your account is disabled and you will have to beg the admins on IRC to get it back.
Complete placebo. Don't you think those groups know about those blocklists and are paid to keep up with them with dedicated staffers and specialized software?
If they can't successfully make reports to ISPs, they lose clients, so peerblock lists are always circumvented.
>tfw always look for YIFY/ettv/eztv torrents first
>tfw never seed
>tfw use vlc
>tfw use public trackers with 8 kbps upload
>tfw post those A 9 V 9 comments in KAT and TPB
I have a question for you guys, what happens if someone uploads a torrent file from a private tracker to a public tracker website like kat or tpb?
The best tracker with the best community was original Demonoid.
Your argument is flawed and retarded--it especially falls through when I've downloaded many pieces of shit from what.cd, which supposedly has the best quality, and that goes for all of the other circlejerk private trackers.
The torrent file has a key associated with your account. That key is blacklisted, and your account is banned.
If they don't catch it (they will) all the people hit and running will get you disabled anyway unless the tracker doesn't have H&R or ratio rules.
So they still allow shit quality rips to be uploaded, and have no real quality control outside of making lists of what the resolution is and what container it uses.
You've proven that pass the popcorn is worse than BakaBT, which is a public anime tracker. You've proven that private tracker users are lower than weebs.
It sounds like he already has a job, which is why he's spending his weekend on the task.
I can't imagine you'd be butthurt for any reason other than actually being the person he's referring to, though.
>So they still allow shit quality rips to be uploaded, and have no real quality control outside of making lists of what the resolution is and what container it uses.
False. Each file is reviewed by someone to make sure it meets minimum encoding standards, and generally, an encoding log is required.
Higher quality downloads. Now as far as ass covering, you can use a vpn or a seed box. I use feral for my seed box and 8 love it. Its about 10 bucks a month or so and I get the price of mind that I can downloads as much Shit as I'd like and not be in as much as a risk.
I don't like private trackers. They expect you to upload and maintain ratios.
I just want to come in and leech shit.
Uploading is how you get in trouble. I've got several terabytes of about ~2,600 movies and entire TV Shows in my XBMC (Oh, excuse me, "Kodi") setup, all downloaded from public trackers like Demonoid, PirateBay, Kickass. I rigged my torrent client to never share and only leech.
Not one angry ISP letter, ever.
If I went on a private tracker and started uploading to maintain ratios and shit, I bet within two weeks I'd get one of those angry ISP letters from HBO.
Leeching is the way to go.
I started my What.cd "career" by downloading some popular albums in FLAC and MP3 V0 the instant they became available.
The ones who generated more upload for me were the Daft Punk Random Access Memories that came out at the time, by coincidence.
Public knowledge being spread about Usenet obliterated it and started DMCA takedowns.
I remember when plebs didn't know about usenet and it had no takedowns. Then there were daily threads on /g/. Then eventually takedowns started.
So why ruin a good thing by blabbering about it? These threads serve no purpose. They just wave a big LOOK AT ME flag.
>>I remember when plebs didn't know about usenet and it had no takedowns. Then there were daily threads on /g/. Then eventually takedowns started.
Usenet servers run for commercial purposes. They can be taken down very quickly unless they comply with DMCA.
Private trackers are donation-based operations whose server is hidden within many different services and the files are stored by the users on their own hardware.
Nobody is taking down private trackers unless those private trackers operate in a stupid gay cuck country like Sweden or Jew countries like the US.
Private trackers will get taken down one way or another if the publisher cartel decides to target them.
Private trackers are just flying under the radar for now. The more you spread awareness the closer the day comes that they are added to the hit list.
And what is the purpose of these threads other than to attract attention? You are just being attention whoring little kids.
I have a seedbox running rutorrent, how do I create a torrent with my own files? when I click create new torrent it only show the directories and files that I have already downloaded? how do I upload my own files?
The US feds take down darknet sites pretty regularly. What.cd would be child's play to take down if they wanted to. They just need to decide when they'd like to kill it.
I love what and other private trackers I'm on, but they aren't going to last forever. It really is only a matter of time before they're shut down.
>>I love what and other private trackers I'm on, but they aren't going to last forever. It really is only a matter of time before they're shut down.
That's why you move to another tracker when one is shut down. It's not that hard.
>That's why you move to another tracker when one is shut down. It's not that hard.
No shit, I'm just saying that people that say these sites are going to be around forever are retarded.
Anyone have a spare waffles inv?
A kind Anon was going to share one with me the other week, but my power went out and I missed a great opportunity. I am a member of other private trackers. I have been itching for one of these for quite some time now.
>I'm just saying that people that say these sites are going to be around forever are retarded.
Nobody says What.cd specifically is going to be around forever, retard, but people do say that private torrent sites will always exist and that is a certainty, so who gives a shit if What.cd dies or other trackers die? We just move to another one and nobody gives a fuck.
>people do say that private torrent sites will always exist and that is a certainty
These people are also retarded. I've seen quite a few file sharing protocols come and go over the years I've been pirating shit. All the trends I'm seeing indicate that torrents will eventually give way to other methods that provide greater anonymity to downloaders/uploaders. It's just the way things work.
>All the trends I'm seeing indicate that torrents will eventually give way to other methods that provide greater anonymity to downloaders/uploaders. It's just the way things work.
No shit. The only important thing is that piracy will never go away, so I don't see why you are calling anybody retarded when this is all that matters.
>Having choice is better than having one single "best" release. You're a retard.
PTP does have choice. However, none of the choices are shit, unlike the choices you have at public tracker.
Enjoy your shitty KAT encodes, pleb.
How about reading the fucking original post I was replying to?
>Are you technologically inept enough to think a government can figure out who is running What, much less think a government actively looks for that info?
This is an incredibly naive and retarded attitude.
>The Feds don't do shit because they will reveal their power level to the public and that will hurt them even more.
You're kidding right? They shut down websites all the time, often with little legal justification. Normals don't care.
They shut down websites that make it easy for them to shut down. Private trackers are not easy to shut down. A good private tracker is beyond paranoid with security and no Fed would even care to take it down much less try to ID the owner since they are so small and don't operate for profit.
+1 for waffles
also +1 for 312c being an inssuferable cunt
also -1 for anyone that's not in something like AoM or HDBits bloating about their tracker collection, even the top 3 are relatively easy to get into
I'm only aware of this thread because somebody linked me to it
Nah, not really, I just can't stand stupid
So-so, boring Monday at work, except that we got a bunch of ice cream for some reason, no idea why, I just code and ignore things outside my dept
Love to see you try, capt keyboard warrior, do you really think that I post things that would ever directly tie to me? I have left plenty of red herrings over the years, but then again I've also lived in half a dozen states and never in a place with my name on the lease, so good luck following that trail.
Must be another idiot who broke the rules and got banned.
In case anyone doubt's this is actually me posting, I put the thread ID here: PTP.me/forums.php?action=viewthread&threadid=1926&post=18305#post961932
Private trackers have nothing to do with countries or laws. They are about having organized access to well curated content, with good retention, and high quality, with evidence of said quality.
