For what reasons could I be deleted from RED?
>>63722082chicken is also chinese slang for a prostituteyou're welcome
>>63722161How? AHD/PTP/HDB/GG whatever and you should do fine with that. The only trackers you can't race are RED because jewboxes and BiB because racing doesn't really work there.
>>63722270I'm particularly having problems with GGn. I am using qBit, so maybe that's the problem. I should probably switch to Deluge.

apollo.rip down for all?
>>63722994are animebytes invites hard to get?>>63723015i only just signed up for it this is like the 3rd private tracker i have used and it seems alright so far desu, the dl speed is much higher than public trackers and has some shows i couldn't find elseware. I haven't seen the do not post list i'll look into it
>>63723082>are animebytes invites hard to get?PU on red I think.
>>63723081They shut down because nobody would donate
It's not the Do Not Upload list that makes Bakabt bad its the fact that the staff picks torrents for each anime and you have to go by their recommendations. I can pick my own encodes and subbers I like, I don't need to be handheld.
>>63723081Sysop O is working on the "It's all your fault you ungrateful, stingy fuckers" final announcement.

WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY BP PTP
>>63723688No.And it's definitely not called Retrowithin.And it's certainly not located at retrowith.in.And it's positively not recruiting on GGn.
>>63723729Is it anywhere as good as UG was though?No point if it's a no content ghost town.
>>63712075>not using the yen userscripts
>>63723763What do they do and why should I use them?

>>63723794how does it compare to ggn
>>63723780>implying I'm going to mark myself
>>63723841You're already banned though.
>>63723776Go to Forums > Creative Workshop > Site Enhancements and pick the ones you want. I think there is a pack of all the really popular ones somewhere there too. I find the one that displays yen per minute, hour, day etc. on profile useful and the one that displays yen per day on torrents when searching for them useful. Also the one that marks torrents you snatched already when searching for them.
>>63723876Snatched torrents are already marked and I don't give a single fuck about my yen per day.
>>63722762>got on BTN just a few days ago>didn't even understand advent event>clicked the thing and got a gold star on the first day>thought nothing of itlol

fuck your fucking tracker 312cuck
So a classical album I uploaded to PTH before they had a log checker was trumped by someone that uploaded the exact same thing, probably dled from me. I thought these were grandfathered in because there was no log checker?
>>63724712whats the user?I'll sort it out for you.
>>63724712Lmao probably that fuckin loser puff
>>63724712It must have been a CD Rio from another user. There is no way to trump your torrent otherwise.
>It's December>Still no HD rip of 2049 and MotherWTF
>>63722762I got one gold star last year but all the good stuff needed at least two so I got cucked. They didn't even let me keep it and save it for this year

>>63724992Is Cara Jewish?
>>63725153no shes a devilegg
>>63725008What were the prizes?
lumens are literally useless
>>63725221Can't remember that well but I think they had some nice stuff like temporary seedbox rentals and stuff.Though that can be a double edged sword since I feel like if I had a free month of a seedbox it would be a pain in the ass to get used to not having one again when it was over. Which I guess is why the providers are so happy to provide them for giveaways like this.
>>63723794>>63723825I'ts not like new retro games are being made man, it has all of the UG torrents so thats all I care about
>>63725221>>63725255Oh, just remembered you could also use stars for an instant promotion without needing any of the usual requirements, though you couldn't use it to get overlord. Might be nice for someone who finds needing 3000 snatches for master to be a pain or something
since ratio doesn't matter on BIB, is there any reason i shouldn't start auto-snatching audiobooks once i get into HDB? no one snatches them and i really don't understand why. like, wasn't there a guy a few weeks ago who was doing it? why did he stop?
>>63725266I guess people are just too conditioned to want a positive ratio, also if too many of your uploads get trumped and you fall out of ratio-free zone it could be mildly problematic
>>63725257They kind of are in the sense that the definition of what constitutes "retro" expands a bit as time goes on. None of the stuff on that site was retro when it came out either yanno
>2500 bonus points>2500 bonus points>2500 bonus points>2500 bonus pointsI get 3k bp an hour, may as well just give me nothing.
>>63724962It has the same log
I just got into PTP, I'm so excited
>>63725523you should've reported yours for a manual log re-score.RED staff don't care about you
>>63725535GGn staff tend to be pretty nice guys and helpful
>>63725253I'm pretty sure I bought a custom title with lumens and then won one soon after with advent calendar. Also got 1 gold star with no use for it except 100 gb upload and bonus points. I wanted one of those cool animated avatars with my lumens but there's never any available.
>>63725550You get free custom titles when you hit elite. Never anything in the store either.
>>63725548is GGN good? do they have custom doom (original) wads and mods?
>>63725266Bibliotik? What do you mean ratio doesn't matter? My understanding was that it matters once you pass 2 gb dl, or did something change?
>>63725581mods are free nigger
>>63725610yeah but I have to scour the internet to get thousands of them
How much shit do I actually need to upload on RED to advance to trackers like BTN and BiB? I know of ways to find things to upload but it still seems like a pain in the ass.
>>63725581They're pretty much the last man standing as far as game trackers go. They used to be a fairly small and 2nd or 3rd tier site but everyone else died and they absorbed most of those users so there's not really much else option. UGC and bG2.0 never really reached the level it did and UGC has been down forever and bG2.0 is just kind of a shitty knockoff site.
How does animetorrents.me compare to AB in your opinion? They have some torrents AB cucks WISH they had.
>>63725605If you maintain over 100 uploads your ratio isn't counted as well. Not the hardest thing in the world if you just grind uploads from overdrive libraries or whatever but will take a bit of effort I guess.
>>63725336They should just give one Christmas gift on Christmas that's vanishes after 2 weeks if not clicked. The "bad prize" could be like 100 gb upload and 50k bonus points, that way it still feels like something better than just getting 10 gb or 2500 bp at a time.
>>63724992>on private trackers to watch Aronofsky and VilleneuveWoah, anon. I too am a cinephile that can't wait for latest von Trier and Nolan kino.
>>63725618PTP will probably be the easiest cabal site to get in now that they raised the user cap. Just make sure to do so before it fills up again
>>63725630Are they even a private tracker?When I made an account there you just signed up.
>>63725178An egg with relish and spices on top. Absolutely delicious.
>>63725535>RED staff don't care about youyes they are careless in general, after I realized that I simply upload ebooks instead of music and purely for userclass. I've had V0s trumped for dumb and shady reasons.
>>63725654They are now technically.
>>63725657i was just making an educated guess, but good to know
>>63725660Aren't they part of the avistaz tracker group?How legit are they?
>>63725632Oh, I see. Yeah, they have to be seeded in perpetuity that way. I thought the easier option was taking audiobooks from MAM and uploading them to BIB. I have a huge buffer since I rarely dl anything too big from BIB.
>>63725648Still pretty far off PTP sadly... originally I tried to get in through GGn, 6 months account age required for recruitment through even though I meet all the requirements otherwise, it's fucking stupid. I'll be shit out of luck by then I expect.I was hoping RED might allow me to squeeze in sooner but they probably have some similar time requirement and I am pretty sure you need to upload a shitton.
>>63725699Well they haven't sold my email or ran any bitcoin miners on my computer yet.
>>63725618Elite for Bib, TM for PTP50 and 500 uploads respectively
>>63725773Appreciate the info anon, but goddamn... 500? That's fucking absurd.Tempted to just say fuck it and try for AHD at least for the forseeable future, since there's no way I'm getting that many any time soon. Am I even going to be missing out on anything?
YO when the FUCK is ptps tracker going to come ONLINE ????????????????
>>63725523Yeah, so? That's what happens when you make a perfect rip. The uploader could have still ripped it from his own copy.
>>63725630Animetorrents81K Users12K TorrentsAnimebytes16K Users151K TorrentsAnimetorrents has more users. Therefore they are the superior tracker.

When is Apollo coming back up?
>>63726419In which case report the torrent for having an edited log
>>63726370It has a date when it was ripped. The dates are the same, years ago. The file sizes on all files are identical.
>>63726544Why would they?
>>63726523You're so smart yet you jump to conclusions. As I said they were all over dumb and shady reasons. For example: some other person changed the edition for one of my uploads to a Japanese bonus tracks edition 3 weeks after I uploaded it (back when everyone had editing privs), then another person filled the spot that I previously occupied 1 week after that, and then my upload was reported and trumped before I ever received a message. Dickhead.
>>63726534say Hi in the forums Anon. Don't worry you can't get marked on Animetorrents
>>63726596And my upload wasn't Japanese bonus tracks version obviously, and was reported for not having the bonus tracks. I checked the history log so I didn't make a mistake when I uploaded it, someone else moved it to that Japanese edition from original. The mod did not do their due diligence before handling the report. Hence why I said they were careless in general.
I've been out of the loop, have they made a decent replacement for What.CD yet
>>63726596What exactly is wrong with that? You uploaded the wrong edition, fucking retard.

>>63727048You seem to have confused HDB, which is exclusively for Internet Royalty, with AHD which is for the riff raff of the net. A common mistake peasants make, being unfamiliar with aristocratic trackers.
>>63728421ipt is a business running lots of expensive servers/services, ptp is a file-sharing community

I was reading a bit on OiNK and I read this interesing bit:OiNK's user-base included Trent Reznor, founder of Nine Inch Nails. In a 2007 interview, Reznor said "I'll admit I had an account there and frequented it quite often. At the end of the day, what made Oink a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store. Pretty much anything you could ever imagine, it was there, and it was there in the format you wanted. If Oink cost anything, I would certainly have paid, but there isn't the equivalent of that in the retail space right now."Reznor justified his membership of the site by saying "they're not stealing it because they're going to make money off of it; they're stealing it because they love the band." Reznor also criticised legal music download sites such as iTunes, due to "DRM, low bit rate, etc." Reznor later worked for legal music services Beats and then Apple Music, saying of the latter "It’s kind of a miracle to think that a device in your pocket can play pretty much any song that the world has ever created."

>>63729404>So how bad is the divide effecting music trackers? Since we have three competing trackers vying for what.cd's place.Not that much really.>Doesn't that make for a very fractured user base?All the good users are on all three trackers. The shit users are only on APL so don't have much to contribute there anyway. You typically see the same popular CD rips on both RED and APL but they are uploaded to RED a couple of hours earlier. The less mainstream CDs don't reach APL at all. Then there's NWCD, people who only have an account there are extremely autistic but it's mostly mildly autistic branch of RED. Some people say it's owned by the same people who own RED but used as a testing site.
>>63729534>Some people say it's owned by the same people who own RED but used as a testing site.lol

All other things being equal is P2P generally better than Scene quality for blu-ray rips?
>>63729698depends on encoder. Generally yes.
Why would I get into whatever this general is promoting instead of just going to tpb or rarbg?
>>63729408what was it
What's going on with GGn? Seems like it's been all fucky all night
>>63729807If you only download occasionally and are happy with the content there then no reason really. Private trackers are mostly just added convenience if you find yourself going after the same kind of content often and wish there was a more organized place with better quality control to get it from. Can also sometimes be easier to find old stuff that might have dropped off public trackers since people don't give as much of a shit about long term seeding in such places, but kind of depends what sort of thing you're looking for as well.
>>63729829Yeah unfortunately I'm not lucky enough to get into that better games tracker
>>63729698>is P2P generally better than Scene quality for blu-ray rips?yes, but you need to compare all the encodes to see which is the best, for every movie.
Do I need PTP or HDB if I have AHD?
>>63730398PTP yes.HDB no.
>>63730398You definitely need PTP
>>63730407>>63730429Why? Selection, or some other reason?
>>63730628AHD is probably my favorite tracker but the selection of movies isn't great, they have all the popular stuff but anything other than the top 1k on IMDB is lackingPTP also has good trumping rules
>>63730628not him, but PTP will have many HDB/AHD internals. HDB is a great tracker but PTP covers most of your needs.
>>63730303the bigger the better amirite?
>>63730398>Do I need PTP or HDB if I have AHD?You need PTP more than AHD or HDB. It has the most content.

>>63730856I guess if I wasn't so anti-social and stopped stubbornly refusing to come on IRC or post in the forums I might get it faster, pretty much hit a wall on Elite without doing those things though
>>63730871Well I meant more in the sense that you can easily automate it, without the need of initial buffer like on RED
>>63730893Didn't some guy get banned a couple weeks back for trying to automate IRC lines?

>>63731757did he really get hacked?
tracker frontends aren't hot open source projects not because they're difficult to implement (take a cms and add features) but because who the hell would volunteer on something they can't stick on a resumethis guy learned some php and thinks he's hot shit. can't wait to see what disaster he came up withif you have a blutopia account you may as well consider the db leaked if he advertises 'hashed passwords' as a Cool New Feature
>>63731848What the fuck are you talking about?
also the dude saying a relational database isn't good for the task... you think scalability is really an issue for a private tracker? pls
>>63731894It has nothing to do with scalability.
>>63731894It's not about scalability. It's about a document store being much more straightforward and natural to use for storing documents
Will there be a freeleech event once - and if - the tracker goes back up again?
>>63731850>he advertises 'hashed passwords' as a Cool New FeatureWell this is the same guy who previously used md5 for password hashing and didn't understand why it was bad until other devs beat it into his skull on reddit
DIY authentication by PHP novices ftw
