Bittorent Invite Thread

Who Loves You Baby?
In the wake of Demonoid going down I could really do with some invites to private trackers, hence this thread.

Mainly looking for movies at the moment, and so Cinema Obscura and Karagarga spring to mind. Would also love a RevolutionTT or Torrent Leach invite if anyone has one going spare.

Unfortunately at the moment I have nothing to offer, other than to recommend a new find - Cinematik - to those into non-mainstream film. It's not massively busy but I've still got decent speeds and there's a lot of good stuff on there.

whats karagarga for?
A snip it from the KaraGarga Manifesto

KaraGarga strives to be more than just a regular BitTorrent tracker for movies.
We are an exclusive private filesharing community focused on creating a comprehensive library of Arthouse, Cult, Classic, Experimental and rare movies from all over the world.


Here is how we aim to achieve that goal:

*
Do not allow Hollywood/Bollywood mainstream.
From its inception, KaraGarga was designed as a source for non-mainstream and off-beat movies. We try to distance ourselves from the pervasive and easily available Hollywood (and Bollywood) mainstream and show people that a huge and exciting world of cinema exists beyond that. Therefore we do not allow any mainstream movies on the tracker.

The definition of "mainstream" is very elusive and almost impossible to state precisely. It is within the discretion of the tracker moderators to decide on each specific case. As a general rule, we limit our definition of mainstream to Hollywood and Bollywood movies made after the 70s. Classic Hollywood movies are allowed and welcome - even though some of them may enjoy mainstream popularity, we have high respect for their artistic quality and importance in cinema history. We draw the line with the advent of the big-buget Hollywood blockbuster (with movies like Jaws and Star Wars) which brought on a rapid deterioration in the quality of movies. Modern independent productions are allowed and we might make special exceptions for new Hollywood movies from special directors. Also allowed are most "mainstream" movies from other countries - what might be a common mainstream movie in Hungary might be totally unknown elsewhere. For further information, see this collective forum thread for the discussion of the "mainstreamness" of specific movies.

We are well aware that the enforcement of this rule makes a subjective judgment on the artistic quality of a movie that some people are bound to disagree with. However, this rule is the very foundation which has made KaraGarga such a distinguished source for high-class world cinema.

danny la rouge is probably wrong.
I could do with a karagarga invite. Actually, since oink went down I could do with a what.cd or waffles invite too.

Unfortunately I only have STMusic invites to swap as my demonoid invites are no more.

edit: cheers for the headsup on cinematik

I Have 10 what.cd invites for when they open again. They are currently closed for registrations, but they are adding 1000 or so new users on every few days.

I also have 1 STMusic invite going spare.....edit: gone

can anyone help me out with a invite for torrents. films or music,. shhoot me a pm please i will love you forever.

thanks
 
Karagarga's more hardcore Guardian reading type films.

Can anyone recommend something along the lines of demonoid, which is good for getting the sort of just-off-the-mainstream type films?

They're public trackers, which I don't really like to use as (a) I think there is more risk involved re: getting busted and (b) there is no incentive for people to seed/disincentive not to seed hence speeds can be rubbish/torrents remain dead etc.

karagarga and me didn't get on. Anyone recommend - and pass on - another movie site? Piratebay is a little too mainstream..
 

mauvais

change has become unavoidable
I've got 2 what.cd and 1 StMusic. I'd quite like a Karagarga one or anything else interesting.

http://cinematik.net/ is suppose to be quite good, at the moment its open to registration.
Depending how much patience you have, ed2k has a lot of arthouse and foreign films.

i'm confused - does piratebay have any ratio rules at all? I can't find any.

i'm going to seed anyway, but just wondered if i'm missing something.

I think it depends whether you register. I've never bothered doing so being that it's not obligatory. Ditto Torrentspy.

erm..

anyone help? I registered with cinematik yesterday, and downloaded Death Proof. pretty big file - 11gb. So far my ratio is .173 cos I've only been seeding it one day, and i'm going to keep seeding till I get a decent ratio and before I take anything else.

Just tried to log on and got an "unauthorised IP address message". Does this mean I've been fucking banned? And if so, why? you apparently get 2 weeks to get a 0.3 ratio, and I'm 13 days short of that deadline. Anyone the wiser?

Seems - like Karagarga - you and Cinematik don't get on.

Cinematik rules said:
Staff CAN and WILL ban you at their discretion.
Maybe they didn't like the cut of your jib.

:)

E2A: A quick search shows that your account 'has been disabled' - it says you've a ratio of 0.148 and has
next to it.

:D

Maybe if you keep seeding then your account will be okay once you hit 0.3, being that it still exists.

they probably banned you cos the Death Proof was the first film you downloaded.:D

all their movies are .iso files and the like, there doesn't seem to be anything like compressed avi files you get elsewhere (which is fine, it's a cinephile site). This means downloads are always hefty ones.

I dloaded Death Proof partly because it seemed a likely movie to be in demand so it would be good for getting my ratio back up quickly. And I'm still 12 days inside the limit for getting my ratio up. Seems to be they're not even following their own rules

Any body got a spare what.cd or waffles invite, I can offer a Libble invite in return

Thanks

I don't understand it myself tbh. I got a (I presume automated) warning when the day after I first joined because my ratio was 0.1 - I got given a week (not two) to get my ratio up.

Best advice I could give in future is to at first only download newly uploaded stuff - when your ratio is good you can be more picky about what you want to download. Looking at Death Proof it's been up there since September and has been snatched 129 times. And it's a big file (a DVD9 and a DVD5) hence that one download is going to put a 0.3 ratio demand on you straight away.

I just started downloaded Traffic - it's a newly uploaded torrent with only the original uploader seeding. Because I've got decent download speeds chances are that I'll likely be at the front of the pack of the twelve current leechers, which means I'll likely get a positive ratio (ie 1.0+) on it just from seeding to the current crop of leechers. And between two spare drives I've got 750gb to spare with which to seed, hence I can seed stuff pretty much indefinitely.
