    IRC server : irc.passtheheadphones.me
    SSL Ports: 6697 or 7000
    Unencrypted Port: 6667

    #pth-lounge - A channel for non-members to chat in and idle. You are allowed to join even if you are a member.

    How to get an invite to PTH currently inside the #pth-lounge channel on the PTH network.


    0. We already have recruitment threads open at the following websites:
    - BTN, PTP, HDB, AHD, GGn, Bibliotik, AnimeBytes, Exigo and Music-Vid

    - It will be much faster for you to get an invite from one of these sites in their invite subforums.


    1. You must have been a user of what.cd with a user class at Elite or higher.



    - If you weren't an elite or higher user class, you'll need to wait or use one of the other sites above that we're recruiting from.

    2. You must have some kind of proof that you were an elite or higher user class at what.cd such as:
    - Screenshot of your what.cd profile
    - Screenshot of your PM inbox showing user class upgrade
    - Screenshot of IRC showing your elite vhost from what.cd's network
    - Screenshot of the Elite+ IRC channel with past conversation history viewable
    - Screenshot of elite thread access from browser history

    3. If you are in good standing at BTN, PTP, SCC, HDBits, AHD, Bib, AB,Exigo, M-V or GGn provide links directly to your profiles there
    - These can be provided to us in addition to your what.cd elite user class proof, you still need that elite proof!
    - Not every staff member performing your proof checks may have accounts at all of these websites, have patience.

    - If you don't have accounts at any of these sites the person performing your proof may accept different sites, but they'll always need to be reputable sites that they have personal access to.

    4. Make sure all screenshots are hosted at imgur or another simple image host. Do not host on Google Docs, Google Drive, One Live, Dropbox etc

    5. Be prepared. Have your screenshots, links to any profiles and your email address for an invite ready to be sent to a staff member when they announce they're accepting proof.

    6. Wait. You must not message any staff member in the channel until they announce that they are accepting peoples proof. If you do not follow the procedure you will either be moved to the back of the queue or be removed from the channel.

    FAQ:
    Question: I was not an elite or higher at what.cd or I don't have proof of my user class, what do I do now?

    Answer: Wait. New opportunities including recruitment from other trackers will come eventually, PTH is very new, we're still figuring out how to get all of you on board in a safe way.

    Question: I wasn't an elite at what.cd but .... [insert excuse for PMing]
    Answer: You lookin' to get banned? Cause that's how you get banned.

    Question: When will you let those of us without any proof to interview?
    Answer: We don't know yet, we're still formulating when, if and how interviews will occur for people who aren't elite. Patience.

    Thank you
    PTH Staff

    Does the new interview process still required What.CD elite user class?

    No, everyone is free to interview. Proof of WCD Elite+ class is used to gain an immediate invite without an formal interview.

    INterview Team Milestones

    INterview Team Milestones

    On January 15, 2017, PassTheHeadphones.me launched the interview program. We structured our interview program largely on the What.CD interview process. The extraordinary group of individuals that came before us blazed a trail for us and we feel honored to be able to continue their work. We owe each of the previous WCD interviewers and staff an immense debt of gratitude, as without their efforts, we would not be here today. I hope that we continue to carry the torch forward.


    A little more than one hour after we opened our doors, we welcomed our first passing interview to the site. On January 30, 2017, PassTheHeadphones.me reached another significant milestone: we completed our 1000th interview!

    Of the 1000 interviews, we have the following stats:

    Passes: 783 (78.3%)
    Fails: 217 (21.7%)
    Avg Duration: 1h 21m 36s
    Avg Duration for Pass: 1h 28m 11s
    Avg Duration for Fail: 57m 48s

    I am privileged to be able to work with an amazingly dedicated group of individuals that make up our interview team. To celebrate this significant milestone and recognize the effort put into this by each of the interviewers, we are pleased to offer the IN team some FL picks. We hope that you enjoy listening to these picks as much as we did gathering them for you.

    Wooo! Updates!

    Logchecker Update

    Over the past couple of months, we've worked hard on the logchecker. We've had to dissect it, study it, give it some TLC, draw some stick-figure diagrams, spend countless hours discussing it, cry a little bit, and then glue it all back together again. We had a team of staff members and users who poured countless hours into making it better. We love them.

    Nala broke it twice three times too many times to count... But she finally got it working!

    Before we move on to the more, *ahem* exciting updates, we'd like each of our uploaders to visit logchecker.php to make sure that they're not missing .log files in any of their uploads.

    ------------------------------

    Logchecker Changes

    There are quite a few changes that will be affecting logs. Some of the most important are:
    There will no longer be any "boosting" of scores. Only subtractions for errors will occur.
    EAC 0.95 logs will have a ceiling of 70% (if ripped properly). They will have normal penalties for things that EAC 0.95 is capable of doing, such as lacking test & copy. This is due to the fact that EAC 0.95 lacked certain features, such as listing the ToC which we use for dupe criteria, listing gap detection, etc.
    We will not be granting exemptions for defeating audio cache with "proof." This created too much work to maintain, and we believe it is to the benefit of our users that you simply leave it defeated.
    Log editing of ANY kind, including file paths, will be met with severe penalties. If a user continues to edit their logs, their upload privileges will be removed permanently. Please, don't do it.
    XLD rips completed with the CDParanoia engine will be given a ceiling of 0%.
    There will be no "floor" when it comes to the scores - they will be able to dip into negative numbers.

    We realize that the grandfathering decision regarding EAC 0.99 (and XLD's counterpart with the inclusion of signatures) was a contentious issue. We have discussed this at length and have decided the following:
    EAC 0.99 logs ripped prior to January 1st, 2017 will have a maximum score of 100%. Anything after that point will receive a deduction of 1%, allowing them to be trumped (that's a maximum of 99%). We thought that this was the best compromise between the two sides of the issue and we hope that you all agree.

    ------------------------------

    What's Going to Happen with the Current Scores?

    Unfortunately, this is a large process that isn't quite finished yet. We have hundreds of thousands of logs that need to go through the new logchecker, and that's going to take a lot of time.

    Therefore, all of the current scores will stay in the old system until they're pushed through to the new system. It will be a somewhat slow process, as we want to make sure that there are no bumps in the road. However, they will all be moved over (hopefully) in the coming weeks.


    But wait, there's more

    We've re-examined the .cue rules we grandfathered in from What.cd (2.2.10.7.1 and 2.2.10.7.2) and have decided to dust both of them. Rule 2.2.10.7 or "100% log uploads without cues can be trumped by 100% log uploads WITH cues" is now the lone cue rule in effect.

    ------------------------------

    Two-Factor Authentication

    Two-Factor Authentication has now been implemented.

    In order to use 2FA, you'll need to install Google Authenticator (or any other OTP authenticator app) on your mobile device and go to your account settings to enable it.

    If you can, please make sure to use 2FA on any and every website that has the option available.

    For more information about 2FA, you can go here.

    ------------------------------

    Run into Bugs?

    Please report any and all bugs in the Bug Reports forum. We've tested as much as we can, but we're only human.

    Love,
    PTH Staff

    A new direction for non-checksum logs
    FLACS! FLACS! FLACS!


    Following the new Logchecker, we're raising the ceiling even higher for excellent rips. In our mission to become the music archive of the Internet, we have taken a sampling of logs on the site. During analysis, we found a significant number of EAC 1.0+ logs and XLD logs failed the EAC and XLD log checksum tests.

    Due to this development, we've decided to make a change.

    Now, perfect 100% EAC or XLD logs with checksums will trump any EAC or XLD rips without checksums. Never fear though, any 0.99 logs already scoring 100% will still count as "perfect" toward user class advancement.

    There will be a two week grace period where the original uploader has priority to trump their own uploads with newer EAC and XLD rips. After two weeks, torrents containing logs lacking checksums will have a "Trumpable!" tag appended.

    We will be adding a feature on the better.php and advanced search pages that will show trumpable logs when the grace period ends.

    To re-iterate:

    • Perfect 100% EAC or XLD logs with checksums will trump rips without checksums.
    • Logs containing a ripping date before 2017 will score 100%, but are trumpable by a proper log with a checksum.
    • Other users will be able to trump your uploads with a proper log containing a checksum after two weeks.

    Vanity House Returns!

    PassTheHeadphones staff are pleased to announce the debut of our own Vanity House program! We know there are many of you who not only listen to great music but make it as well, and we want to hear it! If you are interested in coming forward and introducing us to your music and yourself, please visit the Vanity House forum and observe the following:

    • Create one topic per release with the subject "Artist - Album (Year) [tags]"
    • In your first post, include a link back to the release. Post whatever you would like in your thread regarding the album, your music, and yourself. Help everyone get to know you a little!
    • You should also take this time to make sure your artist page, bio, and the release description are just as you'd like them.
    • Keep all general discussion about the vanity house program itself in the General Discussion thread. Additional, non-release threads are created as needed.

    6 hours and 17 mins ago:

    We have changed the name of our site to redacted [RED]. We will no longer be using PTH or PassTheHeadphones. Redacted will work for now. Please update all of your bookmarks/apps/scripts to Redacted. Additionally, our IRC has changed from irc.passtheheadphones.me to irc.scratch-network.net

    We are making this change to create a new 'brand identity' for our young, developing tracker. This largely comes after staff continued to notice users felt we were considered a sister-site for PTP, even though we are completely unrelated. To distance ourselves from PTP's 'brand' we opted for a name change. 'redacted.ch' was chosen by staff after a round of voting. Hopefully, you share similar feelings: this will be a unique name we can build ourselves upon.

    In addition to the name change, we would like to introduce our new mascot, Scratch! Currently, Scratch does not have a face to match his name, but we will be working on him soon!

    Please be sure to note and adjust your bookmarks to the new URL and IRC server.

    -redacted.ch [RED] staff
