Where should uploaders post from now on?

Postby Keiko1981 » Thu Nov 20, 2014 12:23 pm

Where would you like uploaders to post their torrents from now on.

We have two choices.

http://thepiratebay.se/ or http://www.nyaa.se/

With Nyaa dramas would most likely be placed under the category live-action. It looks like Nyaa doesn't have magnet links.

EDIT
I can't keep track of where everyone posts. I keep an eye on Nyaa, and will most likely post there myself, for the time being.

People I've seen posting on Nyaa

daemon erebus - Misaeng, Pinocchio
decaturguy - The King's Face
Heiwa Fansubs - Massan 720p
Over-Time
Taido
TSF-R-Subs - Spanish fansub group
VampireXxX - Massan 480p and other jdramas in 480p

I'd say Nyaa. If they allow non manga/anime related content? Not to mention that Pirate Bay is blocked in most countries.

Yeah, I was thinking of that too. Voted Nyaa for that reason.

Not sure... Nyaa is more directly asian-related... maybe they will have the same legal problem with time ... Pirate is more general... more dificult to trace... of course being blocked in some countries is a disadvantage :scratch:

Apart from being blocked in some countries, TPB also comes with lots of ads and tons of fake uploads.

its up to the uploader. it's true piratebay is a mess, magnet links are annoying and they have no PM function but their torrents are mirrored on many other sites (kickass, lime, iso) that have torrents.

also piratebay ignores DMCA notices

but nyaa is fine with me

Wow, Keiko1981 is fast! She had the poll up before I finished posting my reply to the old thread - so I'll just copy it here (below):

--

I visit pirate bay with full body armor underneath and a hasmat suit over that. Better have ad blockers installed too to keep all the porn off your screen. Also, fake and attack torrents would be in the mix. There would be no sense of "community" (nor any way to create one) and our torrents would just be scattered everywhere with no way to really filter a series or even narrow the list to asian TV). Also, there wouldn't be the blog-style, RSS-compatible lists to track the daily updates. Just try and see how effectively you can filter your searches there.

I've been poking around every alternative I could think of today and so far I think nyaa.se is the closest feature-matching and best site that's ready to go right now. It's a CJK community (though mostly Japanese content at the moment) and includes a tracker and dynamic RSS feeder. Going there now and filtering on Raw Live Action will bring up today's Pinocchio and The Kings Face torrents mixed with only 3 other new postings - that works!

There aren't any forums or messaging features, however, but that could be done here, leaving the torrent postings only for there.

---

I'll add: You would want to post dramas under the RAW subcategory of Live Action (other sub-categories are for English and Non-English translations). Also, to aid in sub-filtering, uploaders might want to add a search category (like J-drama or K-drama) to the torrent name to help downloaders find things there the way they do here. Maybe even the uploader's name, too, as that isn't searchable (in only shows in the torrent's individual info page) if that matters. You can comment, but only on the torrent pages (so for example, the WITH encoding you have comments only for that episode, separate from the BarosG encoding, etc.). Not ideal, but that is also available here.

I think we should organize here (if the rest of this site stays up) and just post the torrents there.

Kickass is generally cleaner, yep.

Also, when you search, the listing options/functions, in my opinion, work better than on TPB. There's more order to it which makes looking for stuff easier.

Of course, stuff that goes onto TPB ends up on Kickass anyway.

Yea, I use adblock too, so I'm not sure about that. I like kickass though. It's not failed me. My source for anything else I wanna torrent I cant find on DA or AT or any of my sources. And practically the one to go to for anything hollywood. They do have the occasionally Japanese drama or movie. My friend downloaded this 30+gb super HD version of the first season of HYD, which I couldnt find else where. Pretty neat.

Yes, those add blockers make the difference. Kickass is a good source aside from the massive porn you'll get without the blockers. Animated porn, no less!

just because something is originally posted on piratebay does not mean you need to use them. within 10 minutes the torrents are all over. piratebay and magnet links are a hassle. but for the uploader they are very easy.

but I have no objection to nyaa. the only downside is they could be taken down at any time. something not likely to happen with piratebay (and impossible if one considers all the mirror sites)

I remember when this happened at mininova; the torrents were removed but the forum remained. for years requests were posted and links to piratebay, demonoid and lime were in that forum.

And do you know if kickass is also blocked in any country? I'm concerned about the future of asian-oriented sites... I think a more general site is safer... and maybe with some kind of 'tag' in the name of the torrent we can find them easier... just thinking aloud :P

Anyway it's up to the uploaders and where they'll be more at ease... we're only seeders....

I didn't think of that, because I actually like magnet links, but it's true that that's the only choice on TPB. I don't know if they work or not on Nyaa, because I haven't noticed any there yet (though I don't know why they wouldn't). But you only can post one link anyway (per listing) so if you did want to post both, you'd have to post two listings.

probably blocked somewhere, but it does not matter. if kickass is blocked, try lime, if lime is blocked there is torrentreactor, iso and others. and the torrent would be on all of them.

Not sure if this is the place to ask, but what the difference between the normal links and magnet links? Even then the normal links has 3 different colours. Do they mean anything?

Mentioned it in the other thread, but you can get an extension to bypass the country-blocking thing if your country is blocked.

As far as takedowns are concerned (and we still don't know exactly why d-addicts closed their torrents - it's only suspicious) I think TPB attracts a lot more attention because they do host everything. With Nyaa being CJK only, there should be less interest in their activities. Firstly, most of what they host probably doesn't even have rights assignments in most marketing regions, and secondly, the only interest that would likely have them on their radar might be American-based Funimation, but they would only have rights assigned for English language versions, not subs (which do, however, often get posted on Nyaa).

I voted Nyaa, but maybe we could ask an admin there if we're welcome at all, and if it would be possible to create some new buttons: jdrama, kdrama etc. Now the live action is mostly tokusatsu and pv's.

kangxy67, the torrent files have to be hosted somewhere - that's why TPB thinks they might get some leeway.... because they aren't hosting any files, even torrent files. The magnet links are just a special kind of URL (Internet address) like you might type into any web browser, only it's BT clients that actually interpret and use them. But they require more work for the BT client to actually find where the seeders are - you may notice they take longer to start, or don't start at all sometimes.

D-addicts had 3 colors because the torrent files were hosted on three different sites. The hope was that if one of them failed (or that site went down) one of the others would work. Again, with a magnet, you client does all the work, nothing is hosted anywhere.

if the uploaders really wanted to continue providing torrents. you could opt not to use any other tracker and simply post a pastebin link. as many (including myself) have opted to do.

so the uploading team can create one account shared amongst team members to add their stuff. upload the actual public torrent file to a webhost (ie. zippyshare). and put up their links. simple and effective! sure it's not pretty but it works.

Yes... It is other interesting option! Many sites do this. Let's take the most comfortable way to the uploaders... I'm not sure we can decide for them... but indeed we can think many options! :lol

Nyaa looks like it is a disorganized mess. A site must be chosen that lets you sort torrents at least by country and language, and preferably also by complete seasons/single episodes, HD/SD.

Why not AsiaTorrents?

Because it's got quite a strict ratio watch, and getting bonus points is quite a pain. I only ever download movies there if I can help it. Uploading helps ratio, but it's not the most useful. Besides, who doesnt like to not have to worry about ratio if one can help it?

sinecure, isn't that pretty much what Furransu did, only using a fancier looking and easier to navigate blogspot page? I had considered that first, but then thought that would be harder to organize and use (for the community in general) and it isn't ready to go immediately and it wouldn't be easy to find what you wanted unless you provided some kind of an index - and that brings us round back to where we started (I think).

Shidn, did you use the filters? There are enough options there to basically mimic the front page of the "Dramas" tab they way it was here, before. And filter by HD/SD? You couldn't do that here (that is TBP only). But you could make your resolution choices from the posting sequence (which would tend to be clumped together, as here), which would look essentially the same. And you can of course filter the specific drama, too, if you wanted (like here, before). I also like that the filters allow you to specify an relative age range, which makes it easier to find earlier postings (other than the latest). We couldn't do that before so easily. Play with it a little longer and I think you'll find is isn't so bad as you think - use the filters.

So if you're looking for materials in only one given language you'll have to spend the entire day browsing page after page there.

We need a place where we can search for specific language/country. This is not negotiable.

AsiaTorrents allows for this.

I'm voting for Nyaa, I feel that it's a better source of Asian stuff than in Pirate Bay or even Kick Ass. I may not be an uploader but I definitely seed up to a 1:1 ratio that's the only way I could show appreciation to the uploaders.

Thanks for putting up this poll as well! It gave me a little hope and makes the depressing news easier to accept.

I think Asia Torrents with its ratio restrictions for downloads is a mess for people with low bandwidth... also Asiatorrents works under invitations, it's not a free-registering site (well, they do registration open some weekends, but still...)

Nyaa searches are good enough for me.

You couldn't do that here (that is TBP only). But you could make your resolution choices from the posting sequence (which would tend to be clumped together, as here), which would look essentially the same. And you can of course filter the specific drama, too, if you wanted (like here, before). I also like that the filters allow you to specify an relative age range, which makes it easier to find earlier postings (other than the latest). We couldn't do that before so easily. Play with it a little longer and I think you'll find is isn't so bad as you think - use the filters.


I haven't used Nyaa much before, but as far as I can see it doesn't allow you to filter by language and country? What if I'm looking for Taiwanese or Singaporean dramas? If you need to work on your Mandarin or Korean? How does someone find specifically these there?

Someone wrote about using specific tags... maybe ask nyaa to create them, or even the uploaders can use them in the post name... (J-drama,K-drama, and such...)

Can we not create an altogether new site that is suited specifically to our needs? Like NewD-Addicts?

Basic features would be ability to sort by language, country, single episodes, whole seasons/series.

I didn't like Naya too much, but I think if the uploaders put (K-Drama, J-Drama, C-Drama...etc) on the name of the torrent, I think it will be better.

BTW, I have some invitations for Asia Torrents, if any one want one please pm with your Emile, and I will send it ^^

It's probably wishful thinking, but dramas could be got from all over Asia, not just the far east. It could feature shows all the way from Israel and Turkey through India to Malaysia and Indonesia.

Nyaa is more secure than Piratebay. The latter works in my country but we should all think about those who have it blocked in theirs.

In my not so humble opinion it is a bit early to have a poll with only two (2) options.

Also what makes (made) D-Addicts so great is the Fansubbers.

I am always going to the Fansub Map
http://fansub.d-addicts.com/Jdrama_Fansub_Map_2014

Is the Fansub Map still going to be maintained?

Then I look for the torrents here. (or sometimes elsewhere)

BUT that is just for me who needs the English subs otherwise having the RAW does me little good.

Can we hear from the Fansubbers.

Just my two cents worth.

One thing I am so curious about. I have TONS of Asian Drama, but I have no idea how to make it into a torrent, or uploading it.

We have two choices.

http://thepiratebay.se/ or http://www.nyaa.se/

With Nyaa dramas would most likely be placed under the category live-action. It looks like Nyaa doesn't have magnet links.


Are those two the only candidates? Aren't there other places that should be on the poll like https://www.asiatorrents.me/ ?

Edit: scratch asiatorrents, I forgot that you have to upload as much as you download, or something like that.

since Nyaa is, to say the least, unorganized compared to d-Addicts, all that needs to be done (for the time being) in order to keep things a bit oraganized is to create new topics here such as 'Japanese TV Variety Uploads at Nyaa" "Japanese Drama Uploads at Nyaa" and the uploaders can post their torrent links in the relative section, as VampireXxX and Taido has already done in this thread.

(Doesn't have to be just nyaa by the way)

We're talking about more options in this thread (kickass,asiatorrent,pastebin,dropbox...)... I don't know if it counts, maybe later they make another poll... :lol

@KoikeRika

Regarding uploading there was a manual on this site. Nevertheless if you've a torrent client there should be an option with "create new torrent", in my client (the U....) it's under "File".
After it's created, you'll see it in your client. You need to upload the torrent file to i.e. Nyaa (after becoming a member). Hope this helps otherwise PM me.

I agree with dhisashi...we need to know what's good for fansubbers...

I don't want upload to asiatorrents since its a private tracker and invite only thus it will be more difficult for fansubbers to sub a dorama...

and also i too need english subs to watch doramas :D

Thank you! But how do I add multiple files? It won't seem to let me. I want to add the subs inside too. Not just the drama or Movie.

@KoikeRika

Of course you should have all files in one folder and then follow @VampireXxX message

Btw not in i.e. downloads folder, but in its own particular folder.
