Disclaimer: This will not be a conventional give away. Read through my post and spend some time reminiscing.
Once upon a time I was a noob in the torrent world, and had no idea where to turn to to get where I wanted to go. I had a good sense of what sort of ultimate tracker I was looking for, but my resources were limited and the people I knew even more limited.
And then I found FST.
Thanks to the generous community here at FST, I have made my way into all the places I was after and learned not to horde everything in the process.
What's even cooler is that I have made some great friends in these past couple of years. You know who you are
So with all that being said, I want to help some under spoken, perhaps unnoticed FST members who just don't know the right people and haven't had the opportunity to truly get immersed in a tracker community. Ideally these invites would be gotten through meeting people and making friends on tracker forums and irc.
BUT, I know how hard it can be to start out, so I'm here to help.
I'm not offering any specific invites here. Instead I'm allowing you to ask for that one tracker that you really want to be a part of. Forget about levels when you make your post. I'm expecting the rules laid out below to be followed whether its a high level or a low level.
Here's the tricky part.
I want to hear a little bit about your torrent history. Tell us what your motives are, how you got to wherever you are, etc.
Likewise, I want to know why you want whatever tracker it is you are asking for. Don't just give a one liner about how great it is...I need to see that you want the tracker for reasons other than collecting or because it has a high level to it.
Collectors/traders/scammers beware. I will do a thorough history search on everyone I am considering. And I mean thorough. I have connections in lots of places and most likely will not invite anyone without at least some discussion with other people.
Now here's the fun part:
Feel free to recommend people. Know someone you think would be a great fit for a site? By all means, tell me so. I will of course do the same history checks on anyone suggested.
Be prepared to offer me some user names to other torrent sites if asked. I'm not requiring anyone to be a member of any other trackers, but if they are I'd like to know.
And that's that. I might edit the requirements based on the sort of responses we get here.
Have a happy New Year everyone!
