Decline In Specialty Trackers?
« on: December 14, 2018, 06:11:48 AM »

I noticed that there are very few classic specialty trackers like Retroflix, in favor of open trackers. But private trackers with new movies are constantly on the rise. This is interesting. What makes open trackers any better for classic movies? At least your chances of getting seeds are a lot higher on a private trackers.

People like competing and getting ratio. Higher ratio means more to brag about, hence why there are many quality private trackers.

I phrased it wrong. What I meant was, why are people referring open trackers for classic content? Are classic trackers still scarce?

Yup.  You have the MVorg for docco's but their site is a nightmare.  Their content at Demonoid was one of my big reasons for daily visits, considering my taste in video distractions is education/historic more often than not.  Old films are increasingly only available publicly on Youtube and then they come and go.  Same with old television.  Ancient music and niche/obscure musical genres seem to be hoarded by listeners who believe it's their private realm and outsiders aren't allowed to hear what makes them different to the mainstream....

Unfortunately true and old content dies as it's no longer useful for increasing ratios.

That's an interesting perspective in regards to music. I hadn't thought about it in that way. It would seem to be odd behavior, since when we converse with close friends who love the same music, they easily and openly share with one another. Maybe they take for granted that stuff is on YouTube too. However, I'm a firm believer that no matter how good a streaming service's algorithms are, you still need a human to share those classics that a script can't pick for you!

I think overtime, people just don't give a f**k anymore, and that's so depressing. Yet, these same individuals will practically beg, BEG for a movie, and give absolutely nothing back. This is where I find ratios useful.  Because even trackers where there torrents are completely "free;" if they keep track of ratios, I'll look to see what their averages are. If their ratio is -5,965 they're not getting a single zero or one from my seedbox. End of story. Torrents aren't Megaload or Rapidshare.
