Thread: Just trying to get a leg up

  1. #1
    I've been trying to get invited to some of the more prestigious trackers (i.e.: FTN, SCT, & Oink) over the last few months with no luck. It seems almost impossible for someone to trade an invite to a rare tracker especially if all I have to offer are Level 2,3 trackers such as TL, Pisexy, RSR, & RevTT. It doesnt seem to matter that I have very good ratios and good bandwith, only the rarity of a tracker is considered.

    How did some of you get started, which I assume everyone was new to the torrent scene at some point? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I kept making accounts at TB, and since most people were discouraged by the sign up process, I traded them for other things.
    Unless you have a seedbox, be happy with TL, not much of a difference between the two.
    Go for oink though, great community for music.

    Its just like in the business world: it's who you know. You don't know anyone, you get stuck with the low end jobs at first. :]

    I'm not into trading accounts as I think that is kind of a cheap thing to do. I utilize all the accounts I have and I seed everything I download for at least a couple of weeks.

    Although it seems that alot of people get ahead by trading accounts, but I think the Staff of those site's accounts being traded would frown down upon that.

    The only other torrent sites I'd like to get on are FTN, SCT, and Oink. Besides those Im not looking for much.

    It's funny, because I've been in the scene for a really long time. I ran a WHQ BBS for Vision Factory back in the Amiga days and I was a supplier for Paradigm and Razor 1911 a few years ago on the PC scene. But back in those days you could prove yourself. With torrents, it seems like hard work gets you nowhere, its all who you know, which unfortunately alot of the people I knew in the scene retired or got busted in raids over the last 5 years. Besides, most of the release groups frown upon torrent sites, although I think they are great! I never got 800kb/s on a private FTP site like I get on torrent sites.

    Thanks!

    Or bite the bullet, pay the cashcow RevTT for VIP status and get some invites, trade off the invites for invites equally good. you will at least get bitmetv & oink that way, then it begins, seed - be patient, get the invites, offer then for other sites, get a good portfolio - oh you get the picture.

    The thing is to seed & seed and create more invites, 2 weeks or 4 weeks or 6 weeks - just be patient.

    My advice to you is stop thinking of these sites are rare or judging them by the ratingsystem.
    They will come to you then
