What happened to BakaBT?
You could check their twitter, you know.
>There is no ETA on when it will be back.
Where else can I easily find completed manga to download
Seriously? Well, time to commit sudoku.
I hope they are back soon.
I thought it had somthing to do with utorrent. Not sure where i will find older anime to watch now.
DAMN YOU DAIZ
JUST YET ANOTHER ATROCITY HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR!
I-it's only temporary, r-right guys?
>having to seed
>thinking ratio matters on AB
Just download 1080p, it's all perma freeleech.
Oh fuck, this is bad. Bakabt has some series that Animebytes doesn't that I wanted to download
I'm sure it's Daiz' fault.
>Bakabt has some series that Animebytes doesn't
Then how am I supposed to maintain a decent ratio and be able to keep downloading?
I know this feels really scary and shit, but it's not like the first time it's ever happened.
This is worse than when they killed all downloads on hongfire, god dammit.
A couple of older ones and lesser known stuff. Like Cyber Formula and some old mecha anime I wanted to see.
>yfw it's down FOREVER
So what's your new hobby going to be, /a/?
You don't. If you can't keep your radio stick to the leechers torrent sites. If those sites disappear go fuck yourself.
I've been thinking on starting to actually program... programs.
Does the tracker still work by any chance? If so, can someone post the current one for Feburary, please?
I want to complete my download of Kanamemo, but the January tracker is now dead, and I have no idea of the February one.
(Ignore if the tracker is dead along with the site.)
I'm sorry, what?
mangatraders, just sign up and you can DDL
>tfw already have tons of hobbies
If only you could program an anime.
It's a terrible site anyways. Nyaa for season anime and private trackers for older stuff is more than enough.
Oh good it's not just me. I thought my ISP was fucking me because I'm downloading too much right now.
Guys, its been down before. It'll be back tomorrow probably
I've been also thinking to getting to start drawing... drawings.
>It seems during the backup of the server, something went wrong so the whole site is currently down. There is no ETA on when it will be back.
So hold off on downloading that big series for a while and you'll be fine
My torrents are all dead from it.
What are you talking about? Sadpanda is still up.
While you watch some new stuff, or some "old" that you already have, the old/hard to get things in those private sites might die, and you can't just watch/download all at once.
That was the good thing about BBT, archiving.
Anon... I don't know how to tell you this
Isn't the advantage of torrenting that even if the site's down you still get to download your shit?
mfw I'm still somehow downloading from them.
Why don't they point it at a small html page explaining the issue? It'd solve a lot of drama.
But any sane person should have an AB account already in case of the inevitable
You mean that site where nobody seeds jackshit that's more than a month old?
Don't even joke. Nothing is scarier to me than the thought of Sadpanda dying.
It was hard to get someone to give an invite, you know.
I was just lucky that someone was giving them out in a thread a while back.
Couldn't you take the interview?
I get more invites than I know what to do with
You need an invite for AB? How did I get in without one then?
Just force start. Worked for me.
That's for ADC, no?
I don't remember such a thing being an option with AB, at least not when I was trying to join.
Yes, you do.
You ask someone, like >>101372617
Are you fucking me? I was just on there last night it was all fine
Don't scare me like that! You had me thinking the site was killed by piracy scandals or something.
Not him, but I always get nervous midway through it and give up.
They have an application.
Well how the fuck can you get the torrent if the site's down
NIGGER WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
>Asshat single download per server rules
Thankgod for the generosity of some random /a/non
>It seems during the backup of the server, something went wrong so the whole site is currently down. There is no ETA on when it will be back.
How bad could it possibly be?
>start the AB interview for the hell of it
>2. What are your three favourite anime and/or manga series
Interesting. I wonder if they profile people with shit taste.
>Trashing the live server and the backup
Calling it right now
They can go fuck themselves, I'm not writing weeaboo shit on this form, and I'll find a way to freeleech from them anyways like I did for years on bakabt.
That's why it's for seasonal stuff, batches are usually dead
Not him, but a lot of people use it including Hox.
Don't worry /a/, everything is going to be daijoubu.
Well fuck, I only have two shows left downloaded from my backlog. Hopefully it isn't down long
It'll be down about 5 days, 10 hours
Maybe not as bad as it sounds, but not giving an specific ETA makes it so people are not bitching at your door if it's even one minute late.
It's just to filter out the retards who can't form a comprehensible sentence.
Betafag pleb, how are you ever going to get a job?
I never thought I needed to get an AB account since I had bakabt. Would someone invite me?
Just bullshit the interview and use a dummy e-mail.
Fucking this. I don't feel like there are many older worthwhile anime I've missed out on either.
I laugh at you plebs.
BBT has always been a public tracker, though.
You could always download stuff without signing up or seeding, heck, they tell you this themselves.
AB is another story.
Well looks like im running out of anime.
Oh wait, youre joking. ha. ha.
I'm still somehow downloading something from there when the trackers are all dead.
I am NEET already because I quit my last job after fucking up and getting demoted
Sure, I'll need an email. Use a 10 minute one if you are paranoid
Tomorrow im getting 2 1TB drives and download enough animu for a year.
Would they actually accept me, or is this going to be like all of my job applications.
I'll try to get /fit/
Who cares? You lose nothing by trying.
Thank god I managed to get all of Gintama before it went under
look at these leeching assholes
without seeders you wouldn't be able to watch shit except seasonal anime.
private trackers >>>>>> nyaa
They pretty much accept anyone unless you're clearly trolling.
23 and never had a job
Now that we're on the subject, would anyone please give me an ADC invite?
Right now it's invite-only and I'm not even allowed to take the interview, since apparently my fellow countrymen are shitty seeders.
>scared of having low powerlevel
>having low powerlevel
>inb4 only watched 20 maymay
>implying there aren't a thousand sources for shit everywhere
>Put some effort into your answers; applications with half-assed responses will be rejected without further consideration.
This is what throws me off.
I hate faggots that hit and run on a 1080p series of like 35gb which I seed entirely to them. Then they all fuck off and leave me alone.
Dude, I'm watching Jewelpet raw right now. I'd say my power level is quite high. They wish they had a taste as patrician as mine.
When is AB going to unfuck yen?
It was the only way I could keep a decent ratio, even though I'm seeding 48 shows.
Neo-/a/ doesn't watch anything beside currently airing anime or anything made after 2008, anyway.
I'm sure it's not that hard to get accepted seeing as some truly autistic fuckwits on here manage to
I don't want Wicked City to be the last thing I got off BakaBT.
Fuck you. I found the same files from Nyaa.
Learn to upload or target specific torrents to get a higher ratio.
H-here we go.
>BAWWW BAKABT IS GONE 4EVER
Have you niggers even bothered to read the aforementioned tweet?
I don't want Mars of Destruction to be the last thing I got.
It mostly to get rid of normalfag who are narutards or people Who Type Like This as well liek thsi and dosent knwo abuot seednig :)
the chinese secret police are responsible. they are protecting their only export, cute girl cartoons.
>Who Type Like This
I've never understood this. Surely this is the most inefficient way of typing possible?
I can't get past the Three favorite series question.
I can only think of two that are definitely at the the top, (Heroic Age and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) but I just really like them. I can't explain why I like them.
Guys come on. From somebody that sent out an application for AB, it's not really too hard, just modify a bit the true and tell them what they want to hear. Shit even I, with a lame upload speed of max 90kbps am able to maintain a ratio of more than 3 with the yen system and was able to get my invite from them in less than 10 minutes.
Just make shit up.
So guys, what's the last things you got from Bakabt? Mine were Pumpkin Scissors, Heat Guy J, Tytania, Saki and Kurau Phantom Memory.
I just listed 3 gundam series and said the mechs look good. I don't think they are looking for scholarly analysis.
When I've asked why people type like that, the majority of them say it's looks cooler.
G-Savior, Weiss Kreuz and Mars of Destruction.
Cry some more while I stop as soon as I hit 100%.
Sorry, over here we don't have unlimited internet. Would've seeded otherwise.
I'd reject the shit out of your application, anon.
My Golgo 13 download is still working, but I guess that.
Revolutionary Girl Utena.
I'm going full scholarly analysis on mine because it's fun, though I fear they might think I'm trolling.
>My favorite standalone manga is Devilman, which is a chilling tale on mankind's ability to fall into meaningless destruction towards each other through fear and paranoia, as well as showing off Go Nagai's art and hot-blooded energy.
Downloaded Legend of the Strongest Man, Kurosawa last night. Hope the site comes back up
completely useless. most of the shit they have is low quality compared to what's available.
nyaa & group IRC channels are all you need
And to think people used to say I was silly for having 7TB of anime stored on my drives when I could redownload them any time.
I love you.
So much bandwidth wasted.
FUCK. I had 1-25 of After War Gundam X downloaded and paused it to download all the new H. And now the tracker is down.
Gotta be ready for Wednesdays, anon.
So it's just not my torrents from Bakabt that are being complete shit then? Ones I downloaded from there keep getting a red arrow with absolutely no connection. I did not connect this to the site being down for some reason. Silly me.
Not everything will forever remain seeded in trackers, private or not, and not everything is available on IRC bots.
Mouryou no Hako
>Bakabt is down.
Did they ask moot for web server assistance or something?
Good thing the exact same torrent is on nyaa
whenever it isn't on nyaa (or just poorly seeded) I hope on the group IRC and download in no time. Never had something not on the group IRC that I wanted.
Well now I'm definitely too discouraged to finish this application. Thanks anons.
What? 7TB of storage isn't -that- ridiculous nowadays, it's 2014. There's also another external drive that went to hard drive heaven, but I'll be replacing it soon enough.
>University cracks down harder on torrenting than on underaged drinking and rampant drug use in the dorms
>This doesn't effect me for now because I'm being forced to use XDCC
Fuck these dorms. Hopefully BakaBT will be back by the time I'm out so that I don't have to go around begging for an Animebytes invite
I'm here since 2006 and I still have no idea how to use IRC.
Let's see the anime.
I wanted to rewatch the original Mobile Suit Gundam for the first time in years. I just got it last night.
I thought i tried bakabt a few days ago and it wasnt working. Just "searching for peers" Does this have to do with Utorrent then?
I just bought a 4TB external because I've been downloading too much anime. Will end up having to build a NAS eventually for more convenience.
>not waiting for the BDs
>living in dorms
How far along is that now?
I know that fucking feeling, whats even worse is when they forget to throttle you for 3 seconds and you get a glimmer of hope before they shut it down.
This fucking happened right after my Hard Drive crashed and I lost all my anime.
Get a NAS, or roll your own server. Not the same as a proper offsite backup, but at least less likely to have issues from isolated hard drive failures, and they are surprisingly useful in general.
Just don't say Naruto, Bleach, or Once Piece and you're good.
BakaBT isn't the only place to get anime you know
>not waiting for Origin
B-But I like the One Piece manga...
But it's not finished so I couldn't really list it as a "favorite" anyway.
>All these people talking about 7TB hard-drives and the like
>You've made it through the years with only a 250GB disc, even into the 1080p encodes era
>no doan's island
It's a bad encode.
If they go down, I'll actually have to spend the upload credit on AB instead of hoarding yen.
Doan's Island was fucking retarded.
I don't seed anything that's currently playing.
If I download an older series that only had a few seeders I'll try to at least seed for a couple of weeks. It might not be much but it's better than nothing.
Yeah bakabt carries lots of stuff
AB doesn't allow Xvid I think? So lots of older shows aren't allowed on AB.
+ h-manga, manga, music, etc.
Fuck you, salt is important.
You're fucking retarded.
Holy shit, I didn't even know.
Good thing I downloaded Dirty Pair last week.
>AB doesn't allow Xvid
The anime of the week thing's only encode is xvid.
Catch up on my backlog.
For me it's the worst episode of Gundam so far. There have also been some really retarded tactics played in this series like the old people revolting and taking the crew hostage JUST as they are about to make it to Earth when they're being attacked and Bright wanting to replace Amuro as Gundam pilot even though they've all been relying on him.
BakaBT is retarded in the fact that they only allow one version of each resolution to be on their site. I like having choices for my releases. Pic related.
>implying BakaBT is the end of anime
could have built one for <300$ (not counting HDDs of course). Buying an external is cheaper in the short term though.
>look for anime series
>720p when 1080p is out
>TV rips when BDs or even DVDs have been out for months
I lost Dirty Pair right when I was about to finally watch it.
I hope it remains down forever, so AB will get a lot of new users and it will be easier to seed.
Is JPS good, /a/?
A friend of mine is willing to invite me.
Since the yen changes tens of thousands of music torrents from AB were dropped because people couldn't farm yen from it any more, so need another place to get music.
why the fuck do US releases have to have different timings than Japan releases? Re-timing subs sucks ass. Official subs look like ass and miss a metric fuckton of shit.
I'm sorry for you anon
No, it's fucking abysmal. Are you looking for anime music or something?
Because that's not the place to go.
I don't always agree with BBT's choices for a series/resolution, but at least they occasionally saved you the work of having to download various releases just to compare them
>animebytes will accept anyone they said
>still after 1 month I still don't have the confirmation email
My mommy told me to never do this but here it is.
JPS is mostly for k-pop and j-pop stuff.
>implying I watch anime anymore
Only thing I'm watching is Sakura Trick
>I'm too much of a lazy, stupid cunt to know which groups are likely to be better and know how to judge via script comparisons and encoding details to determine which release is likely the best.
You're just a fucking child who wants to be spoonfed.
I watched the OP about 8 times, and dipped into the first 10 minutes of the first episode once. It was like foreplay, and then it was taken from me.
I guess it's time to make that contract.
>only getting anime singles
It's always better to get the album that the anime music eventually gets released in, and JPS is fine for that in my experience.
Sakura Trick has been the only anime I've found that is equal to LoGH
I wrote 2-3 sentences on each part and got it. It's not that hard.
Great taste anon.
So, you never actually watched LoGH?
Do they have a strong selection of say, japanese hardcore punk, underground metal, folk, ambient neo-classical, or piano works?
They don't have anime singles or soundtracks? Not even theme songs and the like?
Don't really care about pop.
I have, Reuenthal is my favourite character in the show.
Yes, but good luck sifting through it to find that without a specific artist/composer in mind.
No anime. At all.
They don't always only allow one, but different encodes generally share a very similar script between them. Be it edited and better signed official translations or a respected group's sub but typeset slightly different.
In those cases the difference is fairly negligible
>They don't have anime singles or soundtracks?
JPS does have anime music. They didn't used to allow it, but they do now.
>mfw I was able to download Hyperdimension Neptunai anime right before the site went down
I doubt they have more than you can find elsewhere, just use rutracker and stuff. What.cd if you really want a private tracker for music.
Then you have simultaneously great and shit taste.
>implying ST isn't AOTS
I bet streamfags are laughing at us now.
>finally decide to download Noir OST
It most certainly is not. I can understand you enjoying the fact that hey, lesbians, but that's all there is.
>gloating about downloading shit
No, really. I watched it while it was airing, and I don't know why I didn't drop it.
Hara hara dokidoki dance dance.
ukiuki wakuwaku chance chance.
>not enjoying Heroic Age
What's wrong, too : > for you?
Sad Panda still up and running, got me worried for a second there... And BakaBT, well, it will wither be up again by tomorrow or you can just find other websites, it's not like BakaBT was the holy grail of 1080 anime torrenting anyway.
These threads are probably just AB trying to advertise. This is a hunch.
AB advertises on here fairly often, fuck they even have an IRC channel to tell each other when they've been mentioned, and a thread link.
Note the #4chanwatching tab.
Why would they? We still have numerous other sources to get anime.
What else is there this season worthy of my glorious taste?
Not sure about those genres.
There are almost no anime singles, but there are some soundtracks.
There are plenty of OPs/EDs and the like, but on the artists' own album instead of the anime's.
1080p anime is mostly shit upscales, anyway.
I have a feeling that it's not down for good.
I don't doubt that they've probably lost some data, but I'm sure they'll get what they can up and running as soon as they have recovered as much as they can.
It was shit compared to the games. Enjoy.
NEVER FORGET a.scarywater.net.
>do the interview
>10 minutes later I receive the confirmation E-mail
2hu or vocaloid allowed?
How's the classical music selection in what.cd?
rutracker has few formats or recordings to choose from.
ADC is still my favorite
its only good for getting old series
and I already got all the ones I want
It's an application, not an interview.
Plus, of course they'd respond fast, they most likely started this thread to reel you in. >>101375731
original LoGH (as opposed to the remastered)
They have 2hu, doujin, and vocaloid shit but you're better off using Nyaa or doujinstyle for ddl links.
>do the interview
>they want three reference from people who aren't relatives
Why is there cum in his hair?
Now I have an excuse to not watch old ass shows I'd probably fall asleep to.
KYUN KYUN KYUN KYUN
>How's the classical music selection in what.cd?
Shit nigga, that's some resolve you have there
Seriously you need three references?
I'll pretend to know you because that shit sucks and you probably have no friends.
It's completely optional.
I skipped all the optional boxes and got it.
There is my girlfriend, but she lives in Canada.
I'll do it

how many AB staff are in this thread right now
There's some guy on nyaa posting banned bakabt torrents
Don't lie anon.
All of them
>dorm don't let you pay for private internet service
>The private service is amazingly good value and better than stuff you could find else where other than the occasional drop out.
Feel bad for you son.
You better accept my application then.
U wot m8
I'm not lying. She's starting lumberjack for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Just ignore him - he's a typical Animeshytes member.
Their reasoning for banning torrents baffles me. They're a fucking torrent site for pete's sake, and they're worried about attracting attention? If a studio wanted them dealt with, they'd be done by now.
You fucked up.
I didn't want to go full in.
just let me in your anime leech you capitalist shitfucks
Keep in mind that the legal situation is totally different for licensed and unlicensed works. Japan usually doesn't go after copyright violation in the US, it's the licensees.
I think, on balance, I'd rather do without than join that shithole. Thx anyway.
This shit is really easy to get in with people, just try it.
You write bullshit all day on 4chan so why not do it here
>I didn't want to go full in.
They've always been afraid of FUNi and NISA (and CPM and ADV back in the day), but it's already been a while since they moved their serves outside the US and well out of the reach of those companies, shit, they even keep some low-profile series that were picked up by those in the site.
Whatever it is the reason that they haven't decided to give them the middle finger escapes me.
So what all does AnimeBytes host? Obviously they have achives of anime, but do they have manga or music?
Accept my application. And please tell me you have more Majokko.
I'm guessing that the studios they don't fuck with tend to be quite the sticklers about filesharing?
Yes, even games.
Get out >>101360756
Anime singles & OST, manga, VNs, live action, hentai, games.
They even have a video with your mom featured in it.
Look at the ban list again. It's not by studios, it's by licensors, companies that legally translate and sell anime in the US. They're the sticklers.
And yet, you can find stuff licensed by the people BBT draw away from, FUNi and NISA, in AB, Nyaa, and plenty of other torrent and DDL sites.
remember space dandi OP?
well, remember the rythm that starts playing when the dude goes VIIVA NAMIDA?

Darude - Sandstorm.

This. I keep adding stuff that I ignore.
I mean the rythm that plays specifically when the guy says "namida, namida, sou' nan da"
Streamfags don't even know the existence of BakaBT
Utena movie and soundtrack.
Yeah, I know. I was making an epic joke.
Great, what do I do now?
Anyone got an AB invite?
That's not nice of you, you fag
First season Hidamari Sketch in not-shit quality.
Just apply the old fashioned way, as long as you aren't retarded they'll accept you.
Requesting outside of /r/ is not nice, you fag
Man I've never seen Bakabt go down, this is truely a first.
Ahh, don't they ask for all this random bullshit? Damn. Well, might as well suck it up and try.
Thanks anyway anon.
Nobody ever visits /r/, and this is a fairly active thread.
This has happened before.
Last year too, if memory doesn't fail.
Thank you based anon.
Nope anon, this is a sign that anime is about to die.
/a/ is fallen farther than ever before.
CR has destroyed fansubbing
And now we can no longer torrent anime.
We may as well face it, anons are in their end times.
Nice try Diaz.
>CR has destroyed fansubbing
Eh, only in spirit, the actual quality of subs has gone up since CR started doing the translations.
I really hate this bitch's face.
How do people find her attractive?
I don't know.
Then again I've basically been desensitized to any Caucasian women.
Why is everyone so afraid to answer "What is your favorite anime" and "What is seeding/leeching"?
AB is so easy to get into through app.
Do they reject you if you answer Naruto?
Saying NGE is probably a requirement.
Its at times like this I realise I should actually use a variety of torrent sites.
I was buttfucked for a week or so when megaupload went down as well.
BakaBT wasn't that good to begin with. It's nicely organized but a lot of its selections are questionable e.g. having copious amounts of Coalgirls releases.
User submitted. Blame the users.
Shitloads better than BBTs format. Fucking hate downloading manga from them and I get 2 volumes from 1 group and the rest is loose chapters because other groups picked it up and I need to hunt for chapter names and numbers on some occasions.
Never had anything lower than 300kbs but that's just anecdotal.
Get a seedbox, for $12 a month it's worth it.
Why would you do that
Blue Sub No6
UFO Princess Valkyrie
The problem with AB, and practically any other private torrent site, is that there are simply not that many people going after a given torrent, so seeding back what you downloaded usually takes a while, if you ever do it.
I didn't even take the interview so seriously and I still got it. 'Twas easy peasy.
The last one I got was Hyouka. It's not even that fucking old. I just wanted to watch it again so badly.
Also Honey and Clover.
I haven't contributed to those pieces of shit since they stole the website from Box. I hope they're fucked for good.
The YRYR OST
Do you have to sign up to dl from bakabt? I don't think you had to years ago, but then something changed and it didn't work anymore, everything was blocked.
You cant use their search engine, but you can still dl as far as I remember
Same thing. If you can't access the links, you can't download from them.
You can just google "[anime] bakabt" and get what you want. Or sign up, use their search engine, and sign out before downloading.
You just google ")anime title) bakabt" to get the links.
Sneaky. Thank you. When they come back I'll give it a try.
>There is no ETA on when it will be back.
Better get started on your backlog.
New Dominion Tank Police
Good riddance. Buy your anime.
I will find you and press charges.
I've done nothing illegal.
Normalfags have shit taste.
Yeah, because they like 3DPD
Wait it's down, I just finished downloading Gankutsuou this afternoon?
How would I know, you're the one who downloaded it
Monte Cristo is not on BBT, though.
my Bokura no DL was going fine until bakabt was down.
It is there, I was just posting because it's sort of surprising, from when they sent out the tweet my download finished around an hour before the site broke.
MC isn't on BBT, unless you're talking about the manga.
Looks like your right, downloaded a bunch of shows this afternoon and MC was the last to finish, might have gotten it from Nyaa if I didn't find it on BBT. If anything it would explain why it was so much slower than the other downloads
I've got 10 animebytes invites, tell me why you deserve them.
I got 5 reasons right here.
please give it to me, i'ill use it only for dl manga
That's gonna suck for you
Nigga AB has old xvid encodes, completed h-manga/one shots, and tons of japanese music.
Not saying they're the best archive for any of those things but that stuff is allowed.
Because you wish to help a fellow anon out.
If you can tell why the fuck should I care about AB?
>tell me why you deserve them
Fuck you. Just send me an invitation.
No real reason. Might as well though.
I accidentally the email.
I'll give you a picture of me in a school swimsuit, after I get a chance to shave my legs
I'm relatively short and skinny for a guy
Please give me one or I might hurt myself
I want to invite people from /a/ to AB but I'm scared they'll just make an account and not do anything.
Because I'm asking nicely.
Please send me an invite.
Oh shit forgot my email
Also with kneesocks too
All the series I want to download have very few seeders on Nyaa.
Like Real Drive and Cardcaptor Sakura.
I hope they come back soon, I held out hope that gotlurk was going to come back for the longest time, only to be met with bitter dissapointment
Would that be bad? Would you get penalized for that?
>not using AB
I think it would be a waste.
That may be true, but think of it this way - it'll be more of a waste if you don't use the invites at all.
Do they limit the number of invites you're allowed to give out?
No need to be stingy
Speaking from experience, that's all they do.
Give me your email, and I'll convince you to give me an account in 10 minutes or you money back.
I'm going to sleep for like 12 hours straight and hope BakaBT is back when I wake up
Seriously. Nobody deserves a fucking invite unless they have actually tried the application. IT'S FUCKING EASY.
I can't believe /a/nons are such pussies. Disgusting.
Jesus christ fuck off back to /soc/ if you're going to be this much of a faggot
I'm not a pussy, but I'd rather not tell anything about myself to a complete stranger.
It just feels wrong.
I hope it's not true. I had a very good ratio on bakabt despite my shitty upload, and what I download on animebytes just doesn't seed shit.
B-but I have a crippling fear of rejection
Nobody downloads it so you have to seed it for months.
Well, good thing I have an Animebytes account with more than 1TB of upload.
Anon was pointing out that you were being completely hypocritical
Jesus christ I hope its up soon I don't want to use that garbage animebytes.
Jesus Christ Lelouch, stop having shit taste. Why is Animebytes garbage?
So you're the kind of person who doesn't want to talk about yourself to complete strangers?
Thanks for telling this piece of information about yourself to me, a complete stranger.
my icecap just melted
I was obviously talking about private information. It's not like I posted my email address and favorite shows etc.
>favorite shows etc.
I don't get how people are hung up on this. At worst somebody reads your application and thinks your a pleb. Chances are they have shit taste.
You've never posted your favorite shows in a 3x3 thread, or just your opinions about any show, ever?
This isn't credit card information, you weirdo, just some simple ass surface level questions.
I think I put Nichibros, Nichijou, and Genshiken on my application. Just don't put entry level shows on it and you're fine.
>mfw you listed all entry level shows
Does it matter what you put down as your favourite shows? Could it be the difference between getting in and not?
Lately, I can't download torrents in bakabt (google a show + bakabt) since 2014 came.
Does anyone having the same problem as me?
Why do you think entry level shows wouldn't be fine? They have torrents for naruto, bleach and everything.
I'm pretty sure the questions are more there just so they know you're a human being capable of properly stringing words together in english, I doubt they care about your opinions at all.
>implying I implicated anything other than objective fact
Lately as in today? Because that would be the dumbest question ever asked.
Otherwise, specify a little more
They're not entry level but they're also not the most obscure shit in the world.
Just sign up for an account, navigate to the thing you want to download and then log out and go back to the page.
He's saying that since 2014 started he hasn't been able to google a show on BakaBT
Perhaps. Does it matter if you are rejected if you weren't willing to put down the damn shows in the first place?
>He's saying that since 2014 started he hasn't been able to google a show on BakaBT
I would have thought that, but it doesn't make any sense
Oh no I definitely plan to complete the entire thing, I'm just curious.
I don't think it being 2014 makes a difference. He's just using that a reference point for when he started noticing it. I think.
Great, I was almost done with the new Berserk torrent on BakaBT [the one with all the DH scans] and now the tracker's gone.
Is there any way to finish this? Like, an alternative tracker or something?
The one on AB looks different [although it's bigger in size].
Only if you find the exact same torrent elsewhere.
When I try to download a show, it finds a peer.
For 2 fucking hours.
And that started when 2014 came.
I had a friend offer to give an invite, but wasn't able to because of DDoS attacks.
You think it's gonna come back?
Fuck and I just got my warn lifted on bakabt and planned downloading some anime.
Wait until BakaBT comes back up. If you were smart enough to download sequentially, you should be able to just use another tracker if push comes to shove.
Have you updated your torrent client? It might not accept the updated version.
The server fucked up, it's not like they were shut down by the feds.
I have an account on bakabt which I constantly keep seeding stuff on but never really used to download anything, so I had sick ratio. Mostly using animebytes which is more than enough to for all my needs.
The faggot is the one that doesn't even try to submit an application and then whine on /a/ how fucking hard it is to get in AB, faggot.
They blacklisted uTorrent 3.2.2.
I don't remember the last time I've used bakabt
Yeah I'm fucking pissed about that. My client's been waiting on 5 torrents from them. Just whitelist it already you fucking idiots.
I'm using utorrent (waiting qbittorrent to became stable). I'll try that when baka is up again.
I think it wast to try out one of those spoofing clients
Well my fucking question had been answered.
>being a faggot who whinges about other's lack of social skills or the anxiety of sharing personal information to a third party
>being an /a/non
pick one dipshit
Are you really spaghettitarded enough to not be able to fill out a simple application? Jesus hell. It's easy as shit.
Just switch the qBittorrent now. I've been using it for the past few months, and it's much better than any other torrent client I've used. I hear a lot of people complained about bugs in past versions but they seemed to have fixed them now.
>superfluously updating functional software
I have about 700GB UL on AB and yet I still wait for free leech
anyone else do this?
I came here to post this.
Damn you, anon.
Dumbdumb, you're just submitting an application. Think of it as making an essay for your homework or some shit. This should even be easier than making an essay for your fucking homework.
You absolute fucking moron. Have fun, then. If you can't fill out an application then I don't think you should get an invite either.
Wait so how do I go about signing up for animebytes?
Do they want 1:1?
I have 1+ TB of upload and about 150 GB of DL, but I rarely download anything now that I can't farm yen anymore.
I downloaded a bunch of oneshots from there. I love oneshot manga.
I already did numbnuts
Go to animebyt.es and fill in the application under the "register" link.
Do you get fucked if the person that you invite is an idiot and gets banned?
>now that I can't farm yen anymore
Fuck this shit, why did they change the damn system? It's fucking ridiculous now.
Is the IRC and forum parts of AB good or full of faggots?
I've been a member for more than a year now and I've never used them.
Go here. Sign up with your normal e-mail adress or a bullshit one you just created, doesn't matter. Sign up with your real name or a fake one, it's up to you. Just fill out the application, they accept pretty much everyone.
Ratio exists on AB, and normally you'd want 1:1, but this is not the case here. Basically what matters is the time you're seeding - as long as you seed long enough(which should be a day or two maybe) you don't have to worry about ratio. On that note, all 1080p content on the site is freeleech, so you can download fucktons without it affecting your ratio and you don't have to worry about anything. For instance I have actually downloaded 1.33TB since I first joined, but since most of it was freeleech, it says on the site that I've only downloaded as much as 83GB. I'm not even joking. While I've uploaded 623GB.
So as long as you seed long enough on stuff, it's nothing to worry about, and since almost everything is freeleech you barely have to worry about that either, even if you still should seed long enough on freeleech stuff too since it'll be a hit and run otherwise.
Well theoretically you could just fill requests.
There was a request up a few days ago for 400GB for a FLAC rip of a $30 album on amazon.jp
Seedbox costs like $15/mo
If you got a bit of pocket change you can get a huge buffer
Don't you have to seed 1:1 and seed for atleast 3 days?
Nah, I still have more than 700GB of difference between UL and DL and more than 400k yen, so I'm fine. Still mad that instead of getting like 800 yen/hour, I'm now getting 800 yen/day.
mfw I also put down Nichibros. I hope they don't hate Gyagu Manga Biyori though....
>any of the following critera
So you only need to seed 3 days OR seed enough for you to get a 1:1 ratio on it.
I've done both.
Circlejerking in the irc, and the forum is filled with retards and the circlejerkers from irc.
>if you do not meet any of the following criteria
You only have to do one of those things.
I want to do horrible things to Akira
I'm pretty sure they don't actually care what your favorite anime are.
The way they word it is kind of confusing.
If it was just any of these listed wouldn't it be enough to just be connected to the torrent?
My favourite animes are Sword Art Online, Elfen Lied and Naruto. Will they still let me into their secret club?
>If it was just any of these listed wouldn't it be enough to just be connected to the torrent?
Exactly. Nobody actually has to be leeching from you, as long as the torrent is active, it's fine. It's what I do.
You're just downloading torrents. Just as long as you seed, I don't see why they would care if those are your favorites.
If they don't care, why do they even ask?
Pretty sure his half-sister already has.
Probably to see if you can read and follow simple instructions.

His ultimate goal is to kill anime.
However, you can stop him. Spread this list!
To weed out retards that can't fill out a simple form.
To make sure you're not a bot or something I would guess. Either that or they actually care but find it discriminating to not acept people because they happen to like Naruto.
To laugh at your shit taste.
a.k.a the people on /a/ who just beg for invitations.
Pretty much. Apparently filling out an application is too much work for them, it seems.
Is it against the rules to invite people from /a/?
In the rules it's outlawed, yet it seems it's fairly common and nobody ever gets banned for it.
Sounds like someone is bitter that no one gave them an invite.
Is that a specific rule they have? "Don't invite retards from /a/."
I actually got an invite myself but had to tell my friends that wanted to join to fill out the application since I had no invites myself. Would still do it if I had to do it myself.
Not that person you're responding to, but I have never asked for an invite, yet I got in anyways.
Seriously, it's fucking easy.
jesus christ animebytes still hasn't approved my registration
How long has it been? Mine took like a day or three I believe. I wasn't in a hurry, so I thought they accepted it pretty fast.
No it isn't. This is the closes rule they have.
If you offer invites in public, you might be penalized depending on the circumstances. If you don't know if it's OK to offer invites somewhere, ask a staff member.
They can't really do anything outside of AB, though.
Actually while we're on this topic, would it be okay to say that I found out about Animebytes through /a/ on their application?
Pretty sure one of the janitors is AB staff
I did that.
I assume you got accepted?
Really? I got accepted immediately but that was when they had free space.
It's still early in the morning.
I just said I was from /a/, had an account on JPS and knew how it all worked and was accepted within the day.
I'm just amazed how much you care how anons get in.
If that's the case, then a bunch of these people who gave out invites should have been banned. Nobody has told us yet that that has happened.
I did and I got accepted.
I just did the AB kind of retarded interview, it's retard proof right? even if I was the wrong profile I could easily fake it.
and I don't really understand the 3 favourite animes question, most of normalfag who only watch the big 3 have a lot of money to buy stuff and are very serious in torrents.
A person with taste is more likely to become a leecher than some tasteless faggot
Because it's irritating how a lot of these people just ask for an invitation when they haven't even tried the application and then whine that nobody gave them an invitation.
>not going full hit and run on everything.
Reminder that AB is worse than What.CD, which by itself is quite an accomplishment.
>YEAH MAN I FUCKING LOVE TO SEED HELP THE COMMUNITY AND SHIT RIGHT
It is that easy. You don't even have to seed.
>>YEAH MAN I FUCKING LOVE TO SEED HELP THE COMMUNITY AND SHIT RIGHT
Why did this make me laugh?
Do I have a far chance?
Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! says
Being a autistic teen (lie since I'm a adult) with zero to no friends this was like my life in anime form with a bit more extreme scenarios.
7/10 people might reply.
Fushigiboshi no Futagohime and Rokushin Gattai God Mars.
It says at the top "applications with half-assed responses will be rejected", and 1 and 5 seem a little half-assed.
I agree. Also include 3 on that.
Just think of it like you're talking to a fellow /a/non. Of course, excluding all the insults.
I have an AB account. How do I send invites? Is there a maximum invite limit per day?
Mostly just what.cd (which is a music tracker),BakaBT and Mutracker.
Is that better for the first one? (does rutracker count as a private tracker).
You need to upload something or donate to get invites.
You need to earn them or something, fuck do I know. I don't have any anyway with my ratio being above 7, been a member for 8~ months. Still have zero invites.
I wish I can see what I actually filled up on the application.
It's not too different than mine but I went into a little more detail on private trackers and have even more entry level tastes than you, and I got in within an hour
You need to be a power user.
>Downloading anime series that I can't find on basic torrent sites (or at least in HQ).
It depends on the site and I chat in forums on various sites.
>Depends on the site,depends on the torrent and I would seed more longer if that was the rule.
Do they both sound good?
>uploaded at least 10 torrents,
Bollocks to that then
I'm gonna cry if you don't send me an invite.
I remember that what I said on 5 is
>I usually seed until the ratio is 1, but I continue to seed more if I can.
That got me in.
Well, I'm fine with donating £5 or more, but Jesus Christ, the wall of red tape text on the bitcoin website is giving me cancer.
>worth anything at all
This entire thing is a mess that caused countless shitposting threads over some kids who felt entitled to freeleech at What.
fuck me i wanted to download Kare Kano
never watched that shit before
Don't worry, BBT doesn't have a decent KareKano release.
