Not sure what private trackers are all about?

If you ask for invites in here, people will report you and staff watch these threads. Several accounts have already been lost due to stupidity in these threads. Don't risk your account for an anon
If you have access to private trackers, you have a moral duty to reupload to public trackers.
By putting up with byzantine rules and regulations to share content with others, you martyr yourself for the good of mankind.
The torrent already exists. I upload a duplicate torrent with the same exact files and the seedboxfags instantly snatch it up. I then remove the torrent from AB, but keep the file loaded in my torrent client. I don't get the upload credit, but I do get upload from seeding
Yeah. I'm running through the CDs in my parents home, got some perfect FLACs out of it, some duds. Still have some to go.
I don't think this is the kind of music the average WCD user from my country would like to download
It's been proven again and again that anons are shit private tracker users.
Even if a couple of us aren't assholes, it's not really worth wasting an invite/risking getting banned for an anon.
I have 5 Mbps upload bandwidth. I think all of it was being used. I've freed some bandwidth so that you can download.
>This might be part of why you can't get much upload.
Well, I leave all my torrents seeding so the decision of which specific one to seed gets left up to my client. Not sure if there's a better way. I wish I had more bandwidth but I don't.
you can set specific torrents to high priority in any decent torrent client. also,
>go to bandcamp
>download some random free ambient album as FLAC, 320, V0, and V2
>or if you want to save bandwidth just get FLAC and encode the mp3s yourself
>upload to what
make sure its ambient, for some reason I always get at least 10 snatches even if its the dumbest shit like https://cloudbeat1.bandcamp.com/album/my-little-toaster
I'm thinking a script to do this automatically would be easy to write but idk if it's against the rules.
CartoonChaos is beyond disappointing.
I know that feel. I was subjected to that exact speed not too long ago.
Now I have 50 Mbps download bandwidth but upload bandwidth is sadly still pretty narrow.
Someone here mentioned that there are scripts running that automatically harvest bandcamp and upload to WCD.
How can I beat them?
>How can I beat them?
You can't, but they miss shit all the time.
Around 10 or so torrents I've upped should have already been there but weren't for whatever reason.
Just go back very far, and do some crossref.
>Someone here mentioned that there are scripts running that automatically harvest bandcamp and upload to WCD.
if there are they aren't very quick and certainly aren't exhaustive. See for yourself, just check out the newest ambient albums and test which are on what: https://bandcamp.com/tag/ambient?sort_field=date
I've checked the first few and they're not there
>with a ratio model like BTN
AKA not having one?
There aren't any. BTN only has it's model because most torrents are removed so soon after they're uploaded, and having any other model would make it impossible for them to operate
Depends on the trackers you use as well.
For example, if you only used TSH, GFT, BTN, MTTV, it's probably unnecessary to have a seedbox... unless, of course, you're contributing and have a low upload speed. With a seedbox you'd be able to upload it to the seedbox, then just seed from there so the download is faster for everyone else.
If you use trackers with a ratio-based system like most of us, it depends on your upload speed. If it's a slow upload link, perhaps... < 25 mbps, it's probably worth it. If not, then it's up to you - there could still be a reason you want a dedicated box with it's own link (e.g. so you can fully utilize your home link's upload for streaming/uploading videos, etc.)
Yeah, they're certainly being ignored. I'll keep that in mind. I think I'll start uploading these once I'm through with my discs. There's some albums I actually like and it looks like I can trump some torrents with a 100% FLAC.
How would I go about doing that? I just upload a "dupe" then report the old torrent with trumping as the reason?
TSH is a general/0day tracker that is ratioless.
GFT is also a ratioless 0day (scene) tracker. It does have some P2P content, but not a lot.
MTTV is a TV tracker very similar to BTN (except newer and not as good). It's ratioless as well... if you're on BTN, I wouldn't bother with it though.
The only way to risk your account is by breaking anonymity, which you shouldn't do on 4chan anyway.
I have a small one to mostly keep shit seeding 24/7 and don't ever worry about ratio. My PC is on my bedroom and i dislike to have it running at night.
BTN recruits on PTP. ;)
Only one I'm telling you - I don't really like people joining a tracker just to get invites. If you list the trackers you're on/want to get onto, and give me a temporary email from https://www.guerrillamail.com, I will tell you if any of them have recruitment threads.
u wot m8
>If it's a slow upload link, perhaps... < 25 mbps, it's probably worth it.
I got massive ratio on PTP, GGn, What, and SCC with an upload link far less than that. All you have to do is seed everything you ever download, forever. Get enough of a seed library and you'll always have a little buffer trickling in, which adds up.
I've had no issues with ratio, but I still got a seedbox a couple months ago. The main reason I got it was to easily fill requests for my friends (they all have their own FTP account on the server); in return, they chip in on the cost, so I get to have a seedbox for $7.50 a month. I also like having an extra layer protection when torrenting.
It's nice for other stuff though. I use it as a VPN which comes in handy often. I can also use it as a cloud service, a webserver, a media streaming service. I'll be going to a dedicated box soon which should be fun since then I'll get to toy around with running a Linux server.
The box also makes it a lot easier to stay under my data cap. In the past I've blown straight through it twice over thanks to busy torrents. Now all my data usage just comes from downloading. And it does do nice things for ratio. For example, today GTAV appeared on GGn. Normally I would have held off on it since it wasn't a scene release and it's 60 fucking gigs, but since I could just choose to not download it from the server and it was freeleech I figured why not. A couple hours later and I've already uploaded 133GB on that torrent, which thanks to the freeleech is 133GB of pure buffer, all made in just a couple hours off a single torrent.
>last two /ptg/ threads didn't have /ptg/ in the subject field
>last one had it in the fucking name field
This is simply unacceptable.
It's because of oversights like this that I miss gold star posts to tweet out on https://twitter.com/ptgtxt
iptorrent gets hate because the owner is accused of DDOSing other trackers by the hivemind reddit crowd whose subreddit is staffed by a PTP staff member 312c. No one other than that small reddit circlejerk believes this or cares about private tracker drama.
No idea about torrentday.
I'm not sure if this is discouraging shitposters by eternalizing their shitposts, or encouraging them by elevating it to a form of art.
Either way, we must build a network of shitpost tweeters. Gold mine. I wish twitter could make me money.
>Why do you care if people join a tracker just to get invites?
Because there's these people known as collectors. Such people are the lowest form of scum because they are people whose only goal is to have an account on every tracker and do the very minimum (logging in every 3 months) to keep their account. They barely seed. They barely download. They don't do anything for the community and they take up a slot that would be better filled by somebody who will actually seed/download.
The reason we keep things a secret is so that those people never find out how to get on other trackers and take up the slots that people want.
If anyone wants something only available on these sites, minus the HD content (too big) let me know and I'll upload to mega.
Probably inactivity pruning. Log in at least once every 4 months, and do what you said about maintaining ratios and not inviting bad users and your account should be safe forever.
Also never write or PM something that might piss off a moderator I guess. I stay away from the cancerous forums anyway.
>mfw uploaded 18 torrents in the last hour
I don't know why people think this is hard.
I had an account at PTP but since i had no use for it, i abandoned the site.
The staff who sent the invite said i could be re enabled any time.
Hey guys. I'm planning to buy a 2TB drive for torrenting from home on 5 different private trackers. I'm going to hook it up to a RasPi 2 and it's going to run 24/7.
Would I be fine with a WD Green? Or do I need something more expensive like a WD Blue or Black? What about Red?
Shitposts on /g/ and /ptg/ staff being retarded as always
Why not just up the cap? It's not like it would be more load on the hardware
Greens aren't much good, Hitachi/Toshiba/HGST is better
If you go Green disable the head parking, that kills them
Might be faster to post here rather than on the forum:
I'm trying to upload an artist to WCD, but I just realized that the release dates they gave to their albums are bogus (1904-1909)
I don't know their actual release dates, so what can I do?
Just upload them with the given years?
Actually they can be. An inactive account suddenly becoming active again has a good shot at being because it was compromised, or because the person is now using it as an established account to sell invites.
>got IPT invite some time ago
>regular pleb tier general tracker
>mfw when i should have listened to you guys
What's more cost-effective?
1) seeding from home with my personal connection
2) renting a remote seedbox for 10€
I don't really know how much power my PC eats up, but let's say it's an average desktop with 2010 hardware (mid-tier gaming pc), is it gonna cost more than 10€ if I leave it seeding like 100+ hours a week?
