Bry, there is quite a few other boards where, it appears that there is some generosity with which these are given out. Someone of your musical stature and finese should have no problem schmoozing one:lol:

so what is this oink invite thing?

LibbyAnn
08-27-2005, 08:49 PM
OINK is a download site and it is really hard to get an invite - each member gets only 3 invites to hand out so they are hard to come by. I think it might be out of England, but you can download from anywhere. It has music from lots of bands in many formats.

Oink is a great place for music elitists, all the new stuff shows up there first. I'd sympathize with B if he didn't know how to get an invite through a little legwork. He's just lazy mclazealot.

how do you'll keep up your ratio. I've uploaded about 10 different things and it really hasn't bought me much of anything. Over half of the things I've uploaded haven't even been touched. In short my question is what are the better torrents that have helped out your ratio?

PS. in all honesty I don't have even one invite so please to ask. I already know where there going when I get them

edit:

kenton, i have had really good luck uploading things. mostly, they are in the blues, jazz or folk department (but i've uploaded some audiobooks) and people jump on them, almost without exception, within the first day. i have only had one that took a week before someone jumped on and they finally did today... in fact, 3 people downloaded it today.

but that and having all of my things open for seeding continuously has allowed me to get a higer than 1.0 ratio.

tiglet26
07-11-2006, 09:25 PM
keep an eye out for new albums that leak before they are due out and hop on right away....those usually boost the ratio quite a bit.....look through the requests and try to fill a couple of those if possible....most of the requests are so far out there no one has em, but you might get lucky enough to find one or two....PM me the links to some of your uploaded torrents and I'll snatch a few from you to give you a boost....I believe I have some leeway with my ratio right now...I haven't DLed much from there lately with all the DMB summer shows I've been getting...

edit: i love that howie day cd. if you don't have it i highly recommend it. the horde compilation is great too imo. anyway
THANK YOU THANK YOU.
i know my ratio looks high but that's just because i'm not letting myself d/l all the things I want (mostly the iem's and sbd) until i have some room.. and THANK YOU

edit: i read that as gbs not mbs, lol. looks good at the moment but that'll be gone quickly, huh?yeah the thing is my ratio looks good kuz i d/led one mp3 cd. once i start with the other stuff i want i'll be in a lot of trouble. i want a whole bunch of flac shows which will put me at .1 real fast. it so easy to click. your bandwith is maxed out for 20 minutes and then your down another .5gigs. maybe i'm being extra careful but thanx for your help anyway.

EDIT: thanx for your help. I've been on for 12hrs and I'm up 2gigs. oh and don't take my uploads as a recomendation of good stuff to listen to. There's a lot of crap there that I never listen to anymore.

tiglet26
07-12-2006, 09:10 AM
uh, yeah! I hop back on to see if we helped your status at all and you're over a 8.0 ratio now! I've always wanted one of those excited smilies.....but I guess as long as I stay positive, that's all that matters....

k3N70n
07-12-2006, 09:13 AM
yeah but it's a 8.0 on 0.3 gig's that's just a little head start

Invites are hard to come by, and those that have them try not to distribute them too freely. I just gave out my first one yesterday after holding on to them for MONTHS! What the invitees do reflects on the invitor. Keep contributing to the site and eventually someone may repay you with a sacred invite.....but don't get your hopes up just by asking for one.....

ok, this is probably a stupid question, but please bear in mind I'm relatively new to torrenting. If you seed for others to download, does that count towards your upload ratio?

One other question: on OINK, do you have to have uploaded a certain amount to get invites to give out? what's the deal?

you have to be a power user, which you become after uploading 10GB, and have a positive ratio (which you should always have)....unless you upload your own things, or happen to seed the top torrents right as they are released, this will take FOREVER to happen......if you can find one request to fill that has 3 or 4 votes, and can fill the request in FLAC, you'll get that ratio up and reach the 10GB in no time......they give you 3 to start with I think, and then give you a few more every month or so as long as you stay on their good side....I've got 10 right now....I think that's the max....but I'm very stingy with them.....

well, dearest kyle, one of the torrents isn't active and one i'm not in the market for at the moment (is it abridged or unabridged, btw?). if matt had something i wasn't interested in, i wouldn't even think about it. but i was looking for that particular album the week before.

now you upload something i want, i'll be more than happy to jump on. i don't have any wiggle room on oink at the moment (used it all up, doncha know).

I would help you out, although this doesn't like me or something, so I can't upload much at all, therefore I can't get a very good ratio; I just found this out. I'm kind of confused because I have a pretty good ratio on other sites. :thumbsdow . I guess I won't download much if I can't upload much. I'm very grateful I got an invite though:)

Check out the FAQ section at oink about port forwarding...that may be your problem....it's a tedious task to get it done the first time, but it's definately worth it!
