I'm going to give this a go before I go pass out. :)
Connection Speed (down/up)
~30 mbps / 3mbps
How many Trackers do you use regularly?
10 to 15 at least once a week.
is 1st choice. Relatively easy to seed and bonus system is helpful for older torrents. I can find 95% of what I want here. TEH
is a great compliment to PTP
. Has a very good selection and tons of freeleech! PTN
is good if I do not want to have to worry about ratio, but it does not have as wide a selection.
I am not an HD fiend, but when I do want something in HD I use PixelHD
.They are both easy to seed and have good enough quality for me. :)
On a side note, I use The Horror Charnel
for a lot of my horror specific content. <3
no questions. Fast speeds, ratioless, bonus system... The site is great, the community is great, the end. If I did not have BTN, Freshon.tv
would be my choice as it is also a great tracker with tons of freeleech/half leech, and plenty of content.
My music trackers are all more genre-specific. Metal.iPlay
for the most part. IPTorrents
for newer albums. Would eventually like to join ShelLife
are great and filled with content, but not easy enough to seed to be my "go-to" trackers.
for new stuff, and Underground-Gamer
for old stuff (same as everybody else lol) I play primarily on PC, and those work out splendidly.
I read more fiction than true "elearning" and MyAnonamouse
was holy grail for me. If I can't find it there, I usually check Demonoid. (hehe) Bibliotik
is good for more obscure stuff, but so hard to seed. :( ComicBT
for comic books 100%. All around great tracker.
. If you not a hard-core torrent user, these are really all you need. My husband is proof of this. I've been a member of Torrentday since before they went private and I love how easy it is to seed on this tracker. You don't even have to try. lol
of course, though I really love this tracker for the packs! You can build massive buffer off of their freeleech.
- must have for cartoons due to obvious reasons. They don't have that many leechers, but freeleech torrents to help you out and staff is friendly.
is my the greatest tracker for anime/manga/ost. Backup is AnimeByt.es
, but only if I can't find it on BBT first.
is must have for Asian drama and movies and occasionally anime. They also have a whole section of just eng subs which is nice.
for wrestling content due to super fast times and easy to seed. RAW usually pops on here before IPT
which is nice.
Do you use a seedbox?
Yes!!! If I did not have a seedbox I probably would not download from any trackers. I prefer large HDD over 1gbps speeds so I can just download what I want and seed forever. I don't use RSS or anything so I don't need that initial rush of speed.
Trackers you don't use or wish you didn't apply to?
Many that I check out during open signups are disheartening. FYT, Speed.cd and SeX are examples of trackers I don't use often simply because I can get everything they have elsewhere.
I admit I like to have options as far as trackers go. I like to have backups, I like to have different communities to check out, and I like to be able to cross seed. For these reasons, I always like to have a few in each category. The only category I think lends itself to having only 1 tracker is "general". Try to stick with ratioless if you can seed for long times and have bad connection. Remember, most of the higher trackers are going to require a seedbox to keep your ratio decent.
My first "private" tracker, aside from demonoid, was BitSoup
. I got in on open signup. And you know what? It was great. lol Start small, work your way up the ladder. Don't be in a rush. Take your time enjoying the trackers you have and you will build ratio before you know it.
I do believe I have rambled enough now - this post is ridiculously long. :)
