True challenge: Donations

Alright, the bill for the actual website is coming. It’s an annual bill. If you take the seedbox plus this bill that’s coming, it’s around 150$. I don’t know how this is going to happen with the recent donations but if you have spared funds please think about donating some. I have until the 21th. After that, I don`t know what happens.

Edit: Raised 38$ so far. Around 12 days left until the 21th.

Got a seedbox!

Got a seedbox! - Announcements

I just got a seedbox thanks to the 2 generous people who donated. I’ll be re-seeding/reviving many torrents in this site.
I’m quite surprise to see many torrents I thought would have died to still have seeds and fast ones! Great Job guys!!!

Edit : I swear, I think there’s someone out there helping me out with a seedbox or something.

Hardware Restored.. Except one…

I was suppose to do this like 40 50 days ago but… you know…

You guys did it! With the donation funds, I was capable of getting a “new” used computer for encoding. I was literately dollars off so EVERY SINGLE donation counted. I couldn’t believe it!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Now I realize just how shitty that old, floppy screen, small, broken/cracked, no battery laptop was.
IT ACTUALLY HAS A BATTERY and It even HAS AN EXTRA HDD SLOT! 3 HDDS IN 1 LAPTOP!!! H265 will be a lot to “queue” now!
But I’d rather show my appreciation through uploading.

Lately, I had to reinstall everything in the web server because for whatever reason, the website became slow as crap and I literately could not upload. It would take 5 minutes to load a single page which is NOT acceptable with is why it’s been down/weird for past three four weeks… I now optimized it as best as I could.

The site SHOULD be really responsive (fast). Please let me know if it’s slow of your end.

There’s a lot of torrents I really want to upload/get rid of from my hard drives so I’m going to get to that…

Btw: I started me own tracker. It’s mostly useless and a MASSIVE waste of time BUT kind of cool so I’ll be testing it out and if the load is too much, I’ll simply remove it. I’ll add it to new torrents.

Just a head up, one of my hard drive has a bad sector soooooo… I know this will be a big problem later on…

Pretty weird though, after I got just the right amount, donations completely died so there’s nothing left for seedboxes…

But I HAVE to get started uploading again. I have 20$ coming in a week or so and as soon as I repurchase a seedbox, I’ll re-start fully uploading.

Doesn’t look like I have any money coming in…

Hardware Failure…

Well… remember that hardware failure I talked about over a week ago? Looks like my computer (laptop) is basically dead. It’s been really bad for about a month or so but now it’s done. I’m lucky if it even powers on for more than 3 seconds. Couldn’t even encode for the past 1 to 2 weeks because of this. Can’t really upload with a dead computer… Not sure what I can do. I should have used my money on a new one instead of seedboxes…

Sorry guys.

Edit!: Before the pc powers off, you guys have been donating a good amount and I’m really starting to get closer towards having enough to get a 2nd hand computer to continue encoding. Of course, THANK YOU so much for the donation thus far. Maybe there’s still hope…

Edit!!: Getting closer and closer!!

Long time no upload

From now on, in addition to making [NoobSubs], I’ll be trying out new x265 encodes as well. These will be called [NewbSubs]. They WILL be of lower quality BUT using a “High Efficiency Video Codec”. I’m aiming for around 30-40% smaller filesizes. Not too sure about compatibility since it’s x265 and I don’t know if there’s a standard yet. They should work for the XboxOne and PS4 and anything that can play H.265 though…

 

I think I’ve lost motivation to upload. I’ve been paying for the seedboxes for the past 5 month + the VPS, put an insane amount of work on the site and donations have been pretty horrible, even when I was uploading. I thought after 2 months max, I would get more traffic and with that, donation would arrive and cover most of it but it wasn’t even close.
I’ve drooped over 400$ of my own money into this and I’m running out of money. I used to get super motivated when receiving even the smallest amounts of donations which would push me to upload more but when you’re already broke, giving away that much and seeing your work not pay off, motivation just dies.
Just remember that donation = Seedbox and Seedbox = this site’s existence. Hopefully this will rekindle something…

Got SeedBox!!!

I’M FINALLY GOING TO START UPLOADING STARTING THIS WEEK. HOLY SH!T, I WANTED TO START THIS SINCE EARLY SEPTEMBER but stuff just keep delaying me. I’ll be doing more TV release cuz deadfish may be dead so… might as well…

I got a seedbox. I guess I expect to have to pay for the initial 2 months because me being out for 5 months and all but after, there’s no way I’ll keep that up.
