Keep old torrents around and seed those. Nobody cares if you piss a few hundred kb/s into a popular torrent, but if you are the only seed at 10kb/s for something, you will make a few people really happy.
>>47139391 I seed and you should seed, at least up to a ratio of 1. Some torrents i will seed for as long as possible others i delete after a few days, so its up to everyone. I have a seedbox so it seed for me, i check it once a day and dont give much a fuck bout it.
>>47141942 Not him but, I was searching some 2008 series recently and except some invite-only pvt trackers, I could find them only on public torrent trackers and with very few seeds too, it took me like 3 months to download 8GB, only 1 russian based seed with 3-12 kb/s upload that connected few times a week.
Usenet is worse than this, there's literally no point in using it, if all Usenet users paid for a seedbox instead, we'd still be able to find rare stuff released years ago and at decent speeds too.
Honestly to me looks like Usenet is not very productive, I value the preservation of releases that I enjoied watching, if I downloaded something from Usenet and my HDD died a few months later, there's a good chance I'll never find those files ever again. Meanwhile, if I downloaded using a seedbox, which continued to seed for the whole time, there's almost 100% chance that I'll be able to redownload those files from the very same people that downloaded from me.
Besides, I could just redownload the files from my seedbox account obviously, this is another advantage but I just ignored it to make that example.
>>47142361 For some odd reason (probably just due to age) the tools surrounding usenet are very sophisticated. All I have to do for all my media is add a series, artist, whatever and it will automatically show up on my disks when it comes out. They work partially with torrents as well but they're not as streamlined not to mention with torrents you're (sometimes) stuck with the name it's shipped with if that matters to you or some meta data program.

The usenet consists of user independent servers wich are on very fast connections..i can max out my 100mbit everytime
>>47142427 I think you misunderstood them, they're saying if a usenet person had a server of their own running a torrent client instead of paying for access to a usenet server then it would be better for the content at the same cost since it would be eternal. They're saying the "seedbox" would have decent speeds and actually exist compared to an older article that has been deleted (which would have no speed at all).
I'm not weighing my opinions here just reiterating what they're saying.
>>47142524 That's correct, Usenet is fast but files die early. Seedbox is fast as well but unlike Usenet, torrents can live for decades. Imagine that all Usenet users (I guess a million or so) were seedbox users, we are talking about +/- 1 million high speed independent download sources.

Sure, if you have no idea how to use usenet effectively.
Personally, I've found there to be advantages and disadvantages to usenet. Got a 1tb block account to try it out over a year ago, used up less than half of it. I definitely torrent more frequently, though I've also found some cool, obscure shit on usenet that I couldn't find even through public trackers. It's nice not having to seed, and I always top out my connection when downloading through usenet. Not always the case when I download from my cheap seedbox or even just on my home connection. But yea, generally speaking torrent trackers have usenet beat hands down as far as the amount of content is concerned, and corrupt, unplayable media is pretty common on usenet right now. It's a cool system but it seems to be past it's prime.
>>47142892 You can fully automate all of it. You will need: An indexer. I recommend NZBGeek, but you can use one of the free ones to get you started A usenet provider. I recommend Bulknews, but Astraweb are meant to be good too. You can probably get a month trial. An NZB downloader. SABnzbd is easy to set up and is well supported. NZBget is technically better, but is harder to set up.
I'd always recommend Sonarr over Sickbeard/SickRage. It's more actively developed, faster, prettier, and just werks.
157 TV series on my NAS. Everything just downloads automatically at the quality I want, and I only ever touch any of it now when I want to add a new show.
Yep, I seed. I have a habit of leaving my desktop on most of the time since when my internet connection was worse (300kbps down/75 up) I still wanted to keep a positive ratio. Now I'm at 10 times that speed, not quite as difficult anymore.
As much as I hate to admit it, no. The only Internet service in my part of the boondocks is some shitty DSL lite, and for some reason, my ISP actually caps my upstream quite a bit. It would take me something like 2 weeks to seed back a 700 MB Linux ISO. I've tried.
I do try to limit my downloads, though. I won't go out of my way to torrent something unless it's really necessary.
>>47148901 I've only gotten warning letters years ago. Now I don't torrent movies that come out this year. And I don't seed until a movie is 5 years old. Everything else I seed the shit out of. I also run a bitcoin and litecoin node and I upload a large amount on those as well.
Yes i do seed I do it because seeding is that ethic that drives the P2P file sharing community. You download, then we download. It applies to everyone. Just doing my part trying to sustain the glorious P2P
