    Ok, so I've been in this business not long, and I was wondering why people wanna get the BEST or the ELITE tracker? I mean, I am very satisfied with BitSoup and TorrentLeech because they have pretty much everything I need. If I needed something they didn't have, I'd just request it and most likely it'll be up in a week or two. I mean, don't every tracker have about the same releases (I.e. if you want the newest DVDR of Star Wars, you'd probably find it on most of the mainstream private trackers)? Also, the speeds are usually about the same unless you want something like 1+Mb/s. So.. Why does everyone like to trade invites and/or accounts that they have spent a lot of time to invest in?

    You can make a case for special sites like a national site with only your language or a DVD-only site or even a music only site, but what is the point of having all these general (0-day? Idk, i just saw it somewhere) trackers when all you're trying to do is get some free stuff that you can pretty much find elsewhere?

    Just curious..

    You could be an elitist, wanting all the hardest to get sites. Or you could just be curious and want to find out about the hype that others are talking about. Some of the greatest sites like ScT (so I'm told) have good exclusive packs that are cool and convenient. Or, you can just find the invite trading business very fun. I dunno.

    You have good philosophy, btw.

    I don't know either, and I feel the same as you.

    I have 4 tracker sites that I'm a member of, and I get 99% of everything I look for from just 2 of them. (Torrentleech and Supertorrents)

    There is a poll around here somewhere asking how many trackers, members are signed up for, and I was shocked to see that the norm was like 20 or so.

    Some people just want to be part of all of them I guess.

    to start with i found myself registering with lots of different torrent sites, probably because of a bit of excitement at having discovered something new, and greed. now i only use 3 on a regular basis.

    for me, the packs (free leech or not) separates the elite trackers from the regular 0day trackers. thats incentive enough to really wanna join them.
