    Very hard to seed on this tracker even with seedbox.

    It’s not that hard. You just need to leave them seeding for ages. I’m up to a ratio of 1.2 and a requirement of 0.01 after about 300 torrents. New releases are the best things to seed.

    not as good a content as they make you believe.
    the idea of starting with a low quality and encoding to high quality just to be able to upload it is obserd.
    took a flac file from here expecting top quality
    sounded crap further inspection showed it was a 128 up scaled to flac this doesn’t work
    the fact you have to apply for this is not good

      That’s odd… Since the application part specifically tells you NOT to upscale music. An upload such as the one your talking about would get nuked very fast.

      I’m quite fond of the site. Great place to find rare music :)

    I attempted the sign up interview thinking it would be just some basic stuff, you know like what the rules are, what u can and cant upload, but boy was I wrong. when they say u need to know everything on that page they literally want to u to know everything, and not just copy and pasted, they want answers in college essay format I mean it was totally ridiculous! I don’t have any special music to upload or anything like that, nor would I ever need to know any of the info other then the rules and standard stuff about the tracker. All I wanted to do was sign up and get some friggin albums I lost along time ago from a harddrive failure like nirvana, pearl jam, etc.. lol. But I failed miserably and I studied that stupid shit for 2 days.

    Perhaps you are the stupid shit?

    are they tracking a decent amount of audio apps? Been in interview queue for hours, seems quiet silly.
