Compared to the likes of Cinemageddon, What.cd is a bitch.

I think quality fetishistic audiophiles are mostly just kidding themselves and adequate stuff I can find elsewhere easier. Having to keep an upload ratio to get music is unnecessary work.

Yeah, I only use it when I can't find blogs that supply the music I want tbh.

I can take screen shots of my ratio for you.

EDIT: But if you're uncomfortable giving them out I understand. No need to if you do.

PM me one, and I'll be more than happy to send you an invite.

I'm not reeally a huge fan of private music trackers, because I can find pretty much anything I want out there and I don't need to use what.cd at all. Anyhow, its got a great recommendation system and the quality beats the hell out of trolling on mininova for some transcode. Not to mention, I don't think that you'll be able to find a lot of the stuff thats on there anywhere else on the internet, especially in the quality that its in. I love listening to music, obviously, and I enjoy it even more when the quality is great; it just really accentuates the listening experience. Now I'm not huge on FLAC because its cumbersome, but if you like really high quality V0 and the like, its perfect, most people there really care about music quality. Its like a private movie tracker, sure you can find ****ty axxo rips out there, but if you really want to enjoy a movie and don't want to fork over 25 bucks for a blu-ray, you can find high def rips there and people care enough about taking the time to share something worthwhile. Not to mention, the speeds are always the best. I have a slow connection but all private trackers that I'm on completely tap out my down, as opposed to most public ones, where no one seeds anything and if they do, its capped at like 10 kb/s.
