What.cd?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else on there in here? There's a nice crop of Xmas freeleech staff picks on there that run the sonic spectrum. I'm snagging all for listening and ratio. The place is too good.

teef, yeah It is a pain in the ass. I got lucky and swapped someone a demomoid invite for one a while back. The two invites that I got I gave to two friends- one who knows how to properly torrent and one who doesn't. One is doing fine on What, while the other is already on ratio watch.

 

pornbooth, jump on all those freeleeches and seed them for a week. by the end of the week you'll have enough extra ratio to go house downloading whatever you want. I got mine up to 2.5 by using the freeleeches like that. After I've seeded this new crop for long enough, I don't think I'll have to worry about even having to seed ever again. (even though I will)

Thanks for the heads up theme.

 

 

Watson, you can get on their IRC channel and get an invite, I think that's how a lot of people do it.

 

The only way I can describe it is a giant music store for music lovers. Every band that has been uploaded practically has a bio with streaming music (if you have the current plug-in) from their myspace and/or last.fm. So it makes it easy to preview and know about the band beforehand. On top that the regulations are very strict, if you don't abide by their rules, you're kicked out. If you don't seed and meet the certain ratio requirements, you're kicked out. All the music that is uploaded has to be a certain bit rate and needs to be properly uploaded or it's deleted..... so on and so forth. It's great. It's exactly like Oink - if you even know what i'm talking about.

What.cd has a nice selection but it's completely fucking impossible to keep your ratio anywhere decent unless you have a massive collection of rare, perfectly ripped shit already.

Bingo.

 

Again, anyone on there having ratio problems really should hop on these freeleeches. The site isn't hard to figure out if you already have an idea on how to torrent properly. It just takes patience.

TC, It definitely takes patience. I've been on there for two years and have not become a power user - because I don't seed that often.

 

They recently implemented a new way to calculate ratio so it is a lot better for new users. And honestly, as theme said, the best way to keep a good ratio is free leech and the top 10 of the day. If you hit this shit with your torrent application running for a week and are steady downloading you'll be good to download freely.

 

They've essentially set up a torrent site where everything has a decent amount of seeders (hence the strict rules) so everything downloads VERY quickly.

 

They have it set up nicely though... with the rules it basically flitters out all the idiots who don't contribute to the site.

When I was online there, I had downloaded 4GB, had about 16GB actually available to seed, and never managed to top 1GB in a month's seeding time. I finally gave up on downloading because I didn't want to get the dude who sent me the invite suspended.

Good question, Compton. I've got one invite out there where the kid is coming dangerously close to getting kicked off. I've been on his ass (pause) like crazy to get his shit to something that isn't going to get him booted and in turn me booted. I don't know whether or not I will get kicked off because of his incompetence, but i don't want to find out, either.

 

This Xerexes- Christmas box from these fl's is really dope, by the way.

I don;t think they will ban you on the account of one bad invite. I just realized they banned one of my invites about 7 months ago after he downloaded 5.92 GB and had only uploaded 9.94 MB. So, I read a post regarding this issue from an admin and-

 

"People who download too much and just leech themselves to death are not evil, they just aren't so bright. Unless you have numerous leech happy invitees you re not in any danger."

 

So yeah... I think that sums it up right there.

 

But i'd be on that dudes ass about it too (nh), I'm sure it hinders your chances of getting an invite any sooner.

Thanks for the info. I just talked to dude. The freeleeches are helping him get out of the red big time and he should be good by morning. Then, he said he's not going to use the account anymore because it's too much of a pain in the ass. Now that demonoid is back, he could care less to figure this shit out. Basically dude was a waste of an invite after hounding the shit out of me for one.

 

This Sam Cooke live is great, too.

I was going to get into that but I dont always keep my torrent clients open. I usually end up moving my stuff around and organizing it so my ratio would suck. Although im doing pretty good on Demoniod.

Yeah, i download to my external and I have to keep it locked in one place and seed it before I move or it won't recognize it. It's not bad though. Theme, tell that dude to give you his password and account and you can just give it to someone else. That's bull shit, I'm sure someone on here might want it.

 

 

I'll check that Sam Cooke. The Maldives are good... If you like Avett Brothers or Uncle Tupelo.

I'm on what. Fuckin love that place. Snatched all the freeleeches this morning and my ratio's gone up .06 so far today. I usually keep it pretty low though. The new ratio levels they're talking about instituting should be nice. I seed everything but have a shitty ratio since I download so much... so the new rules should help me out with that.

I'm going to try to get the info from him. If not, I'm going to get dude to donate $5 and get himself a couple invites one of which I'll get and give to someone who is going to appreciate it.

 

I've gotten a ratio increase of .16 within 24 hours from seeding these freeleeches. IMO Everything (sans the psytrance) that I've listened to so far is good music, but I've got a fairly "open ear."
