    Your Tips To New Torrent Users?

    What would be your tips to new torrent-users?
    Was just wondering and bored. Maybe I missed out something... lol. It would also be useful to new users to private-trackers and such.

    Two ones that spring to mind:

    Don't bother with l33t trackers.

    Learn how BitTorrent works, and use it well. I'm talking about being connectable and setting your client up correctly here, stuff like that.
    "Come visit sometime, okay? We'll always be here for you. We... we all love you."

    Grab your content and go. Leave all the eliteness and other bullshit to the kiddies of the bt world.

    I'm pretty new to private torrenting myself, but I agree with anon and funkin. Stay away from bt forums and blogs after you get the invites you want, or else tracker levels will start mattering. Maybe if you're older than the average bt user, say 30 or so, you'd be immune to such things?

    +1 - I would also add to that to never comment on a torrent and say "thanks" or something like that. lol

    1. Don't rent a seedbox. Never. It's waste of money.
    If you can't keep a positive ratio, delete your acc and join other, easier to seed, sites. There are plenty of them.

    2. Join rutracker.

    3. Learn to use IRC.

    Belong to the fewest possible trackers and then to those only because of their content.
    Don't base your decisions by what people on tracker related websites tell you .
    Avoid IRC.

    Goto Idoleyes for counselling before you do anything in BT. I hear there are already 765 people paying him for his services. Famous names include J-Dye, Serb, OlegL etc.

    That's hardly a ringing endorsement since all those people are still clearly.. ummmmm ..... more than a little off.

    Join cool sites with cool people that have cool files and never stoop to sarcasm .
    Also avoid thinking since nothing good ever came from anywhere other than your closed little mind.
    It's all Meg's fault.
