Hey dewdadew, we are always looking to add to our membership. First, we'd just like for you to answer some questions:

1. What other torrent sites have you been a member of, and what were your ratios?
2. What five albums are you prepared to seed immediately upon receiving an invite?
3. What are your five favorite albums of 2008?
4. What is your favorite song on In Rainbows?

Failed my first interview yesterday. Gutted.

I did really well with most of it but faltered with V0 and V2 formats which, as I explained to the interviewer, I have never used. Straight forward FLAC guy me.

Oh well, will wait another 48 hours and have another bash. Unless someone on here can help a brother out?

Yesterday W.CD warned users that the tracker would be down for an undefined amount of time so don't bother seeding for a while, can't recall the exact wording but it definitely seemed more suspicious than just regular maintenance.

Waffles has been down for who knows how many weeks now.

chihuahuau, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:20 (two years ago) Permalink

Waffles was a piece of shit tbh. What.cd was also a piece of shit, with it's hierarchy, rewards, fascist leaning rules. But boy was what.cd sweet all the same.

Back to slsk I guess...

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:24 (two years ago) Permalink

first they came for what, and i said nothing, because my ratio on what was honestly pretty shit

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:27 (two years ago) Permalink

Heh, I managed a dece 0.70 ratio iirc.

End of an era though, this. Been riding the torrent train since Oink and What. There is no replacement for the latter. This will hurt both the downloaders and the musicians.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:30 (two years ago) Permalink

how is it hurting musicians? are 'what' users going to stop previewing music on the web because it doesn't come with a log file?

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:33 (two years ago) Permalink

man that sounds aggro but I honestly am interested in your response, lbi. it's prob been discussed to death on these boards I guess

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:36 (two years ago) Permalink

It wasn't just a d/l site anymore. It was a community that had discovery of (new) music as it's core business. Ive bought loads of music after having learned of it through what. Highly unlikely I am alone in that.

Xp dont mind yr aggro tone, I *get* it: downloading is theft etc. And yet.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:37 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah they definitely had a good community going. though it's weird to say this about something so blatantly illegal I feel a bit bad, some people definitely put a ton of time into this without any compensation

frogbs, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:41 (two years ago) Permalink

honestly i've been spending more time on bandcamp lately than i ever did on what. not just because the site is better for the artists, i just have been finding it to be a better site for new music.

xiphoid beetlebum (rushomancy), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:41 (two years ago) Permalink

I'm behind on bandcamp/soundcloud, first to admin it, perhaps it's just as good

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Ha That's interesting bcz I recall the community being totally not in line with my taste (to put it very diplomatically) but it's been years

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Bandcamp is great. I think I've spent $500 on there this year alone. I've heard the artists get 90% of that which is cool with me. I love how unlike iTunes or Amazon you don't need to download anything to use it, I can click "buy" and start downloading it within about 15 seconds

frogbs, Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:46 (two years ago) Permalink

what was a big community but they def had too much of a "scene" mentality for my tastes.

xiphoid beetlebum (rushomancy), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:47 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah it's really cool just how many notable artists use bandcamp nowadays, in addition to random talented nobodies from nowheresville

soundcloud obv the best for discovering new techno etc.. plus hardwax and other store websites

for older reccs, I mainly surf around discogs (check out cool users' wantlists/collections/lists, explore most wanted items)

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:48 (two years ago) Permalink

by noteable i really mean "known"... like severed heads putting a bunch of stuff up there

a but (brimstead), Thursday, 17 November 2016 22:50 (two years ago) Permalink

however you feel about downloading digital copies or music for free, what had become an archive, it was a thing of beauty. the community produced so many collages that organized obscure collections of music, clusters of labels from a specific place and time, records that appeared on legendary radio shows, records associated with a specific club or scene... it was a massive library. also, it wasn't really one community, it was broad collection of communities organized by the process enforced by the site. you could not download a single thing from it and it'd still be a great resource.

Their collection of music software torrents was unparalleled imo, esp. considering how meticulous the community was w/r/t uploading standards.

Most recent artist I discovered through What was Jenny Hval. Bought her latest. Fuck this.

I was then subjected to a 20-minute grilling, in which the moderator lodged obscure audio encoding questions at me: What is the difference between constant bitrate and variable bitrate mp3s? Look at these two spectrograms—which of them belongs to an mp3 that was encoded poorly? How can you tell? If you encode a lossless file at 320 kilobytes per second, and then again at 256 kilobytes per second, is this the same as encoding at 256 directly? And more.

Sure didn't expect What would be so divisive on ILM of all places.

The only thing that bothered me were the extreme ratio requirements. I mean, sure it incentivises retention but it's not much use when most people can't download anything until the sitewide freeleches or token giveaways.
