this is my 2nd topic on this forum. I already posted a topic where I asked information about swebits and how to get a specific movie. With the help of a few fellow-members here I am now a member at swebits and someone uploaded the movie for me on another tracker. Now I am relatively new to torrenting so I would like to know where I should be looking at. I have checked and read about most trackers but am lost. I will quickly list my interests and maybe you can help me out and give some advice!
I watch a lot of movies, I like to collect them aswell. Therefore I am found of DVDRs with the correct subtitle if possible (Dutch). Now I can also get subtitles elsewhere if the movie is not subbed in Dutch yet. I also watch XviDs if I don't know if the movie is any good. If it is good I download it on DVD and burn it and put it in my collection.
I especially listen to house, techhouse, trance, etc. But I also often listen to other kinds of pop music like 'the killers' which are 'in' here nowadays. I have read that waffles and what.cd are music trackers but that seeding is really hard so I do not know where to go...
I do not often watch TV series. I am just not into it. I don't watch lost, prison break, etc. Though I watch the standard series like South Park, Family Guy, etc. Because I am not found of TV series really I am looking for a tracker which just has the common ones.
Just like TV series, I need a tracker which has the new games when they are released.
About the tracker:
For each case I am looking for a tracker which offers nice speeds, a relative good 'pretime' and has a sufficient amount of leechers to maintain a positive ratio. But for my main interests, movies (DVDR specifically) and music 'trance/house/etc., as much as possible should be on there. Furthermore I would like to get actively involved in some trackers. That means that I want to be active in the forums and especially IRC to get to know the people. I have heard that trading is a bad way to get yourself into sites, and just be nice to people and get to know people better gets you further than trading. I can download with 1.2Megabytes per second and upload with about the same amount. I am looking for trackers which are fast even with low number of seeders
There are so many trackers that I just do not know what to look for or which ones I should get. Also I am aware of the fact that some trackers are harder to get into then others, which is kind of a shame but in my opinion also the best.
Trackers I had in mind:
From what I have read so far and according to my interests I have come to some trackers which I think are wise decisions. But please, wipe them out if you think they are not what I am looking for, but also add other trackers which might be more to my interest.
Sceneaccess - good pretimes, nice overall content.
Torrentleech - standard TV shows games etc., lots of leechers.
Scenelife - active mIRC and nice people.
Scenetorrents - kind of related to TL? But people advise me this.
TranceTraffic - heard its pain in the ass but is specific to the music I especially like
TheDVDclub - focuses on my special interest (movies), willing to become active member there but are they (staff + members) active at forums and mIRC?
For the rest I do not know. I have good advise of some people who are into torrenting, but their advise also differs from person to person. Please help me out and state your opinion
