    Well, you must not know what you're doing then. I've been there for a year now and had nothing but a great time.

    EDIT: Well, I guess you're bound to have "bad experiences" if you download 4 and a half gigs but only seed 300 megs back. OiNK and all other torrent sites are based around a Ratio system. Give back as much as/more than you take.

    And you must not know what you're talking about. I use Linux, so most of the torrent programs available aren't allowed there, and the reason my ratio is so shitty is because the torrent program I COULD use couldn't make torrents so I could give back.

    It's kind of hard to get a good ratio when there's no-one to seed to and it's impossible to make a torrent.

    Well, I did know what I was talking about, but I didn't know that you used Linux (btw, I'm currently working on a Linux desktop too, so I'm not hating on the Linux users). I'm sure if you asked in the OiNK forums, they'd be happy to help you. So I'm sorry if I offended you, I didn't mean to.

    Really, if I could get a better ratio I would. :x I always wait until the ratio is at *least* 1, if I'm in a hurry. I asked around the OiNK forums, ended up getting semi-flamed (Part of this bad experience I mentioned). I recently switched over to KDE, and it turns out KTorrent works with OiNK, so I'll be improving my ratio. Unfortunately I'll have to do it album-by-album due to the recent change in the rules. :/

    P.S. I probably came off a bit abrasive, sorry about that.

    Why would you want an invite for Demonoid.com? From the looks of it, it has a shitty lay-out, not really organised well and then the seeds.. most of them have either 0 or 1 seed. Woohoo?

    You can get some damn good stuff off Demonoid - alot of what I want is perfectly seeded because there's still members on there trying to keep it alive. And what's wrong with the layout? It's simple, nothing special but it does the job. Depends what you want from there really.

    I actually think the layout is quite nice. [​IMG] And the amount of seeds almost doesn't matter, what really matters is the upload rate. [​IMG]

    Unless of course there are 0 seeds. Then you're screwed. But I didn't see any 0 seed torrents.

    The layout is fine from what I've seem....but like ShadowXP said....its the content they have there which makes it shine..

    Ive been searching for a decent PC Remote Control app for my office for ages. Demonoid seems to be the place to get it!

    "And the amount of seeds almost doesn't matter, what really matters is the upload rate. "

    Yes, that would apply for trackers with verified uploaders. But from the looks of it, Demonoid doesn't. I doubt that there's much users on 10 Mbit, let alone 100 Mbit users on that site, so the amount of seeds DOES matter in this particular case :x

    Try Bitsoup.org. Private trackers are much better.

    While I don't use a lot of torrents myself, the best private tracker that I'm on would have to be Torrentleech. Pretty much kills everything else in this thread :]. Lots of releases every day, updated quickly and a lot of seeders. Most of the time I get +1 MB/s on the torrents over there. That's quite exceptional too for torrents, since most of the time I have trouble reaching even 400 KB/s.
