[split] The Tracker Invitations Thread
#1
This is just a note but please don't ask for invited from trackers such as WCD, BTN, AND PTP. There have been several cases where the invitee has been banned due to the fact that the person was in another geographical location and it's obvious the person didn't know them.
#2
don't share? meh...
#3
I don't really make the rules on any of those sites
#4
Private trackers rules seem bizarre, but that impression comes from a misunderstanding, and that is the believe that they have something to do with sharing.
Private sites rules are selfcontained, their only purpose is to serve the site itself.
Having a thread about private sites in a filesharing site forum only reinforces this misundertanding.
The fact that they use similar technology is just a coincidence.
#5
These rules are mainly to protect users and insure there's no possibilities of a copyright troll joining a site

That's just not true.

How isn't it?

First, in most countries filesharing is legal.
Second, all you need is a vpn, not to create a myriad of private trackers.
Anyway, copyright trolls only spy on porn and blockbusters.

You, presumably, are a member of at least one of those private sites.

How did you prove, definitively, to the owners of the site that you're not currently working for the MAFIAA?

How did you prove, definitively, to those owners that you will not at any point in the future work for the MAFIAA?

How did the owners of the site prove to you, definitively, that every other member of the site has and will continue to receive the same level of vetting?

The idea that there is no possibility of a copyright troll joining a private site is complete and utter bullshit. There isn't even any remotely realistic possibility of anyone ever being able to guarantee that.

I apologize for going a little off-topic here but I would challenge this assertion.  Book publishers can also be extremely aggressive.  I'm not even talking about textbook publishers, with which I have no experience, but the large trade houses.  In the month of May 2016 alone (so far), I've had 100 books in six collections deleted by a certain large torrent site in response to DMCA takedown demands.

I know those are paltry numbers compared to the latest Hollywood blockbusters, but they still feel pretty significant to me.  Haven't you had similar experiences with your music torrents, connor?  Or have I misunderstood you?
