    To all 4chan /ptg/ users

    It has recently been pointed out to me that this forum gets mentioned relatively often in /ptg/ discussions. Therefore, I have taken the time to browse archives and check what's exactly been said, quoting the most interesting comments here and offering replies (years late, but it is what it is).



    I don't know who you two are, but I love you



    Nah, the curry meme is only a half-truth, we have a fairly international audience. One guy was even from Sweden...

    Also, I wrote the "leading P2P cheating and leeching" thingy and felt a little tainted afterwards, but what can you do. Facenook wanted a site description.



    This sounds a lot like koel... anyway, I don't hate private trackers, my activity here never had anything to do with that. I was a teenage boy with a 20 KB/s upload and a shaped line who found an awesome forum and wanted to give back



    If anyone knows what "uTorrent centennial" is or refers to, please let me know, because I'd never heard of it before.



    "'The' thread"? To my knowledge they've had several, but we'll never see them now



    While BitComet is a disreputed client, not all private trackers ban it, and Filelist.ro even offered (and encouraged the use of) a customized version of their own making. As I recall, this pack was requested mostly by people from China, where BitComet is or at least was very popular. However, when interest on updates declined, so did our interest on releasing them, because the amount of spyware and call-home URLs was insane and it took literally hours to find and remove them all.

    By the way, I was the first person to make a Multi (upload multiplier) mod for this client, which was previously thought to be not possible due to how announce parameters were formatted inside the executable.



    Dark side, sounds really exciting!



    We have not logged the IP addresses of anyone who participates in this forum since 2009. Some tracker staff were catching members and visitors via the CSS history leak, banning them, and spreading the rumor that our database had been hacked. While there was no evidence of a data breach, we felt that it was safer to get rid of IP logs anyway.

    Furthermore, we use Cloudflare as DDoS protection (no one in the staff wanted it, but we kept getting attacked and commercial services are really expensive) and have not configured it to forward the client's real IP, so all our server sees is the address of the reverse proxy that handles your request.

    In any case, this means you're allowed to use Tor and any sort of proxies, VPNs or anonymizer services that are not de facto blocked by Cloudflare (and we've tried to keep captchas and browser checks to a minimum). We have nothing against them and no way of enforcing a ban on them anyway. And it will prevent you from blaming us if you get banned from trackers



    We didn't get anything from this sponsorship deal!

    I will add to this thread if I stumble upon or am notified of more interesting comments, but it's not like I'll be hovering over /ptg/ daily to check, I don't have the amount of free time cabal staff apparently spend doing that. If there's anything you want to know, feel free to ask here.

    Also, 4chan made Katawa Shoujo, so thanks for that

    Funny general. Used to post there couple years back. If you can manage the bullshit, there is a very useful post for every 50-100 posts probably. Never ceases to amaze me how active it is.

    I posted this elsewhere last year and stand by it:

    [F]or all the flak it gets, 4chan has its place in the world. In there you could agree with a person on one discussion, have a civilized discussion about differing viewpoints on another, and tell each other to fuck off on a third one, and neither of you would think twice about it, because you wouldn't even know. Reddit and some forums offer no such luck, which is why I don't participate too much on the former (that and the addiction potential).
    Without a doubt there are very colorful people and comments in there (particularly in /b/ and /h/), but with encouraged anonymity as a core principle, you have to take the good with the bad.

    If I'm a hero, then people like DigitalDJ, ghostfucker, Rebound, RatioMaster, The248, Shu, Smasher et al. must be demigods

    In any case, I appreciate the appreciation. This forum was always a community effort
