    Thumbs up Why I Like Uploading to gay-torrents

    I used to contribute to The Pirate Bay but their glory days are behind them, although I still rely on them for some things. The problems they have are really pervasive though.

    For a long time, I was reluctant to try anything other than TPB, because my experiences with other torrent aggregators was sub-par.

    Somewhere on Reddit, there was a post about where to find gay shows and gay pr0n, which has always been sadly lacking on TPB. In general TPB is not very inclusive of much that is gay, I always had a hard time finding things in that particular department. Gay-torrents was one of the sites mentioned as well as some Russian site. I have to say that in many ways, gay-torrents was a breath of fresh air. The tracker really works, like, all the time, and folks actually seed, rather than just leach all the damn time. I used to see eggs by the seeder column, here I see double digits and that is easy to achieve too. You can seed on TPB to a ratio of 50:1 and still come out with 0 seeders after a week or two.

    If you ever visit TPB without an ad-blocker, it is horrible. There is no other word to describe it. Just pure hell. And can crash the browser too. On top of that, the comment system is broken so feedback is spotty at best, new people have a hard time registering. The trackers seem to work sometimes, not all the time. I thought my torrent program, router and/or ISP was to blame. In reality the whole TPB ecosystem is to blame. On top of all these problems, there is a really unsavory element on TPB, not just the cranks and lunatics that post their manifestos but those that will try to shut you down if you in any way download or upload. There are ways, they will DDOS or try to hack into the router somehow. Also, on TPB you can sometimes seed for an entire day and never get any activity down or up. Is your torrent program to blame? Nope, because gay-torrents will work just fine, thank you very much.

    Anyway the point of this all is that we have something special here, and should be thankful it is up.

    I am just glad to find a torrent site where stuff works.

    I haven't used TPB for years. It's blocked in my country and the hassle of getting round it is not worth it.

    Apart from the usual gay torrent sites, I tend to user torrent search sites to get mainstream movies. You just need to be a bit careful at times. For example I've just searched for a movie and there was a torrent which had all the trappings of the movie (picture, IMDB link, etc.) but it was a whopping 8MB, yup, MB and an .exe file. So nothing suspicious there, then :p

    I continue to use TPB for mainstream shows, it continues to be the best source. When the main site is down or blocked, there are the proxy aggregators that offer alternative links to TPB that work just as well or better. But I would recommend using a VPN for any type of torrenting. It is pretty cheap and worth it in my opinion. I know many people do not bother so to each his own. I tried torrenting without VPN for a bit and got a letter in the mail from my ISP. After that, I bit the bullet and bought a year's subscription to a VPN. TPB works a lot better on VPN as do all torrent sites and torrenting in general. However TPB is not a particularly nice place to upload stuff. I am amazed people still do but as they do, I will certainly make use of their efforts.

    The other threat besides obvious .exe files is that some media files are coded in such a way to try to crash a popular or outdated media player, then execute malicious code. If a file has any trouble playing, it is best to delete it. That is a pretty rare occurrence. Occasionally I find media files are hard-coded with a language or subtitle other than my own, so I delete.

    I use an RSS downloader for any TV shows - my preference is ShowRSS. You simply add the shows you're interested in, the resolution you prefer and then subscribe to the RSS feed in your torrent application. Then you can adjust the refresh time in your torrent application (mine is something like update every 10 mins).

    Easy peasy!

    Interesting. I heard of RSS, but never tried it. I don't actually watch many shows. Most nights, none. I have taken to reading and practicing magic so often I download shows then never watch them. A show has to be pretty good to get me watching. Last one I followed was Stranger Things, season 3, mainly because it features astral projection in a fairly realistic manner.

    Well I can easily see that happening, I'm more settled and not into the scene but am glad there is a nice place for that sort of thing. For my part, I just like sharing cool stuff with my community and also making awesome finds. This is what a torrent site should be like in my opinion, more of a community type of thing.

    RSS has been around for ages, in fact, tumblr, Twitter and YouTube are just glorified RSS feeds for different content. With RSS, you subscribe to 'some content' and then it appears on your RSSfeed whenever someone publishes something new, just like your subscriptions in other services.

    You can create a personalised RSS feed of just the content you care about by subscribing with certain parameters and make your torrent application point to the aggregate results of that. Then you have a nice list to work with in your torrent application.

    How do you get torrents to upload with a VPN? I keep getting nearly 0 on my uploads, downloads no problem. I have Air-VPN and ExpressVPN and Dashlane VPN. I have tried uTorrent, Bittorrent, Azuer and qBittorrent as clients. Nothing changes! I need to keep my ratio up! Any help would be appreciated. TPB and sites like that don't matter but here it does.

    Does the VPNs you use support/allow torrenting?

    Gay-torrents has the rare luxury of having superb seeders, so I find little activity as far as leechers downloading from little old me. There are people in the world with wide pipes and hot iron, they can blow away the average home user with their internet service provider, so that is not too surprising really. However, if you are patient, and keep seeding overnight, night after night, like I do, then you will see your ratio grow, as folk download from you.

    If however, there is a real technical problem, my first guess would be that, if you truly are getting zero upload, you have a router configuration problem, that is, your router is not forwarding the data to the appropriate computer, or a firewall is blocking activity. You have to actually reduce security of your home system (somewhat) by opening a port, specifically the precise one used by your VPN client. The port number will range from 1 to 64000 or so, and it is best to use a number 9000 or greater and one that is not commonly used. You must google for additional instructions, there are extensive docs available for this very common procedure. I cannot believe that you are not already in the habit of googling for answers if you have three vpns and three torrent clients. I really spent a long time researching router security and use DD-WRT rather than the built-in router firmware. Documentation for the options could be better, but it seems a versatile and potent security measure. You would be well-advised to spend time on your router settings, both for the torrent situation and for general network security. Most people don't but then again, people get hacked sometimes, and the consequences can be unfortunate...

    For me, vpn + qbittorrent is more than adequate for all purposes and has proven secure so far.

    The one problem that afflicts all vpns, torrent clients and so on is ISP throttling. I have noticed it has been quite severe during the coronavirus quarantine. Upload speed is impacted primarily. ISP's have ways to dip their nose into your in/out traffic, detect torrenting and slow down either up or down. Torrentting runs contrary to all of their self-interests, so it is not surprising they do this. I am still evaluating whether it is possible to elude ISP throttling by forcing encryption for all peers and disallowing UDP, only allowing TCP. Initial results suggest these may be effective techniques, at least for my ISP, but the jury is still out. Give it a try if you are sure your router and firewalls are not the issue.
