Over 95% of my torrent use is through either HD-Torrents.net or Goem.org.... both private trackers. The only reason I use Pirate Bay is for downloading TV shows within an hour after they are aired.

Private trackers are absolutely the way to go if you can find your way into one. I have ShannonElements to thank for that.

Mininova is, for all intents and purposes, defunct, and by my estimation Pirate Bay is on its way in that direction.

I agree that Demonoid has definitely seen better days now that it is basically a public tracker since its open for free registration so often.

Yeah, Mininova is completely worthless, and I use PirateBay for the exact reason BankShot listed.

And like he said, private is the way to go. They're more like "communities" rather than just torrent sites. They take it a step further.

Thats precisely why they're so great, and why they're so hard to get into, which in turn makes them so great.

Mandatory seeding after downloading (up to a ratio of 1.0 or like a week straight) and a real sense of comradere and community are what set private trackers apart and make them so vasty superior.

I actually don't have very many invites for anyone. I'm a member of many private sites but I don't even use most of them.

Depends... will you buy into the fact that private torrent trackers are a community where you have to give back (seed for a given amount of time) for the greater good?

ah that would reflect poorly on you if i didn't right?

I can't take on that responsibility hah. I usually just hop on, download the torrent, open Vuze while its downloading, and then I shut it down.

Not only would that reflect poorly on me, but it also would be detrimental to the community that I appreciate.

That kind of behavior is fine and goes unnoticed on Pirate Bay because they've got up to 5000 seeders for a TV episode. However, on one of the private trackers you'll be lucky to get 20-30 seeders on a 12-gig 1080p Hi-Def movie, so every last person helps keep the site alive and in use.

Its too bad you're unwilling to contribute back, because I'll get at least 1 MB/sec on very reputable, high-quality video.
