Right so some fellas might think this is a bad idea as I had a request filled recently...but I think its the best time to make this request because quite honestly, by getting that request filled, I was kinda able to prove my worth around these parts...it helped me to tell the members here that I'm trust-worthy and am deserving of the site I requested (my inviter felt that way at the very least - something I'm very proud of and am also very thankful to him about)
Anyways I figured it wouldn't hurt to make this request since at the very worst, I won't get into the site...well that's not a big deal in the sense that I'm not gonna get into the site in any other way anyways...so yeah, I'm taking my chances with this request...let's see what happens
Now then, on with the actual request:
To be quite honest, I had mentioned this before too but FTN is indeed one of the prime trackers I've always wanted to get in. Again, like my other request, I only know so much about the tracker (the info. which is posted here and in other places) and I can't recall any comment degrading the site...i.e. its indeed worth having and certainly worthy of the elusiveness that the site currently possesses
So then, why do I want to get into the site? Well there's a number of reasons so lemme just go thru them here
For starters though, I want to clear up that I have a number of trackers that offer scene stuff (not necessarily with the same pre-times as FTN or others of the nature but really pre-times are more hype than anything else imo)...that said, I still feel I can get a lot from FTN which I cannot get elsewhere...here's why: None of the sites I have deal with packs a lot (other than TL but seeding packs there can be a real hassle)
Also, I'm a movie fanatic (again something I had mentioned in the past) and am gradually getting into TV shows as well - both of which from my understanding are something that FTN excels at - again although pre-times aren't "very" important to me...if I can indeed get something quicker at one site than the other (say a few hrs if not days earlier) then that can only help, right?
Another key aspect for me is the community...now that I am indeed on FSC, I can proudly say, this is exactly what I was looking for in terms of community...and again, from my understanding, FTN has a very good community too (and staff)...infact, if its anything like FSC...then its not just a good-thing-to-have...rather it can easily be the main reason to be on the site!
Another thing without a doubt is that the no-ratio (more or less) helps! I'm not on a rapid connection here (4 mbps cable - decent but not great by any means) but I still seed torrents for a long long time (sometimes even months) since I never shut-down my laptop (unless for updates, etc)...as a result, even if I sometimes cannot seed stuff directly...I always manage to seed for as long as I possibly can
Also for what can I offer to the site...well other than the obvious (hopefully interesting posts, etc)...I have about 1.5tb of content (mostly anime, some movies and about 50gb of music - all mp3's) so I could perhaps eventually help upload some content there...I don't expect to be able to do that right when I join though (I doubt they expect the same from any new user - let alone myself)
Finally, if the above seems like I don't know much about the site...well then that won't be too far from the truth...like it was for my earlier request, I only so much about these sites from what I read everywhere...to learn about the rest, I simply have to be on the site...and hopefully, this request will help me achieve just that...
