    I didn't love their last album (from 2011) but their old stuff is so fucking good. Hopefully this one is awesome.

    BTjunkie, one of the largest torrent file-sharing sites, shut down voluntarily over the weekend. The service ranked among the top five torrent sites on the Internet and was never involved in legal action, but recent moves against the likes of MegaUpload and The Pirate Bay have influenced BTjunkie's closure.

    "This is the end of the line my friends," reads a short message from BTjunkie owner, now visible on the site. "The decision does not come easy, but we've decided to voluntarily shut down. We've been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it's time to move on. It's been an experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best," the message says.

    What version of uTorrent? As mentioned earlier (maybe in another thread) version 3.1 is banned. Need to downgrade.

    uTorrent 3.1 Issues

    Due to a serious bug in uTorrent 3.1 that causes it not to ban peers sending bad data, we have been forced to remove it from our client whitelist. We're sorry for the inconvenience. For those needing to downgrade, older versions can be found here (version 2.2.1 is by far the most reliable). Remember to back up your uTorrent appdata folder before downgrading!

    Has your download capabilities been disabled? If not, just seed the fuck out of every staff pick next time they do them.

    Yes. I am at 0.59. I joined in like 2007 and was so diligent about seeding. Then I moved and couldn't port forward because I shared wi-fi with my neighbors and they had admin privileges to the account. I kept downloading anyway and it eventually caught up with me. I am now in a spot where I can upload, but can't dl anything because I'm on ratio watch so I am thinking that the only way I can get off is by uploading something new...

    Constantly check the daily top 10. Those torrents are moving the most on any given day, and are usually the newest/biggest releases. Download and keep seeding them. I have kept a healthy ratio doing mostly this. Staff picks are also a good way for a quick boost to ratio.

    Ok... sooo upload something? Fill a request. There are tons of tutorials in the forum on how to upload and what to upload. If you upload anything released in 2012 you will automatically get upwards of 10 snatches from people who are running auto-download scripts.

    My ratio is at 1.11 because I download a shitload of music during freeleech periods. I had a ratio of 1.08 and decided to download a ton of new stuff I didn't have and it went down to 0.80. Then that last freeleech period hit around the time the Coachella lineup was released and I was able to get my ratio up above 1.0 in like 48 hours.

    Freeleech is a great way to build your ratio, as well. I usually download discographies of artists that, for one reason or another, I do not have. Also, downloading of formats other than V0 can actually boost your ratio, since there will be less seeders. FLAC's and 320's can really boost you up. My ratio has been constantly climbing since switching to strictly 320.

    Very very true. I pretty much download only FLAC and 320 now. I found myself downloading a lot of artists in V0 and later I looked back and wished I had the best quality.

    My only issue with downloading so many 320's is that it eats away disk space at a much quicker rate. Sound quality it certainly much better though, so I will still download 320's from time to time. Mostly when it's an EDM track that I intend on spinning at my friend's house.

    I know how to upload and have done so in the past, but whats database is so big that I'm worrying (assuming) I won't be able to find anything to upload. I haven't looked so this is all jst speculation on my part. I guess I'll just have to look. First-world problems.

    Telling someone to download is bad advice for someone who's downloading capabilities have been disabled. Just saying.

    Kreutz, check better.php to see if you can transcode anything you have already downloaded.

    Also, if anyone needs any help getting snatches on your uploads then pm me, I have a lot of buffer.

    You can check the requests section for stuff to buy that has a big bounty. When I still had a bad ratio, I bought two very easy to find and large requests (12 GB and 8 GB) and that gave me a great buffer with which to download and seed things. I seed constantly now and I have a 70 GB buffer, but that start definitely pushed me in the right direction.
