Demonoid is a torrent site. But unlike a lot of other torrent sites, you need to be registered in order to download anything. IMHO, it's the best torrent site out there, just for the range of things available for download (legal things, of course). Just the other day I was able to d/l a whole set of academic articles on a topic I had been researching. I would have to scour the internet for each and every one individually otherwise, and then download them separately from academic sites/Google Scholar, etc. So I was a very happy camper. Demonoid registrations aren't offered that often, so grab one while you can. Otherwise you have to get an invite from someone else.

Hi-diddly-ho, Ozzie must go … See you round, dotTechies!

Unfortunately, I can't at present as this message is in my control panel: “You can not create more invitations at the moment”. However, I'll let you know when I'm able to. Anyone else able to help out here?

There is no invitation codes in my control panel. I can’t invite Refpeuk at the moment. Sorry, pal. Will invite you once I have.

Cheers!!!

You probably have to upload some before you can invite. Just find a popular (legal) torrent with a lot of peers and dl to seed it for a while.

O yea, and thx a lot for this! Ive been wanting to be a member for a while but I didnt know anyone who could invite me! I just forgot to post earlier. Ill invite any of you once I get some invites.

Hi Pwnana,

I’m new to Demonoid. What upload I need to do? And what download can I get? Sorry, for my ignorance.

Thanks.

@Ryan/Ozzie

NP, guys. Maybe start a new thread like the Google Wave thread to give away the invites once they are available?

Just an idea.

Is DEMONOID a completely legal site, or does it host illegal torrents too?

Any comments? Questions? Outbursts?

Not a bad idea.

And Demonoid hosts a lot of illegal downloads also so be careful what you download.

Yep, good idea about the thread. And yep, always check that you're not downloading anything that you shouldn't be downloading. That's not too difficult to determine! Commonsense should prevail. In other words, use it for good and not evil, folks! Laugh

@Ryan

Well you cant really upload until you download, can you? You can download tons of stuff, like since I joined I got some wallpaper packs and Blender tutorials (those blenders have always baffled me… jk, Blender3D =P). I could find these free by searching all over the internet, but its a lot easier having them in one convenient download. You’ve gotta be careful, though, as lots of stuff is copyrighted and on there illegally. Such is the curse of the torrent. Once you’ve downloaded something, you’ll start seeding it, and that’s the uploading I’m referring to. Its common courtesy to seed a torrent to at least a ratio of 1 after you download.

@Pwnana

Thanks for your reply and the warning about illegal stuffs. I’m not sure which comes first.(download or upload). Anyway, I guess it’s dangerous if you let it seed for sometime in the torrent to get the ratio of 1 because you could have unknowingly downloaded illegal files, for example some illegal movies or musics. There are people from the law enforcement going round the torrents catching unsuspecting people. It’s better to delete the files once you have downloaded.I believe if your ratio is less than 1 demonoid will not penalize you. Do they?

Cheers.!!!

Um, I'm not sure how anyone “unknowingly” downloads illegal files such as movies or music! Confused There is nothing to fear if you are not doing the wrong thing. No one is advocating using Demonoid for illegal downloads. Far from it. But the nature of file-sharing sites is that there is legal content and illegal content. You just have to be discerning. It's like anything in life, you have a choice. There is nothing wrong with seeding – and therefore continuing the availabilty of downloads – of legal content. And there is plenty of legal content covering a vast spectrum. The “D'uh-I-didn't-realise-that-DVD-rip-of-Avatar-was-in-violation-of-copyright-laws” just doesn't cut it. There is no excuse for ignorance. And if you're in doubt about something, Google it before you download it. As I said previously, it's a great tool – but use if for good and not evil. Be smart. Smile

Thanks, Ozzie for your great explanation. I guess I have to be very careful when downloading files.

@Ryan (quote doesn’t seem to be working for me)

Uhh, actually Demonoid will penalize you for having a low ratio…:oops: If its too low for too long you can be banned. If you don’t understand torrents just go to Demonoid’s FAQ section, its got everything you need to know.

@Pwnana

Thanks for your help. I will read the FAQ section to understand more. Btw, which torrent is the best. As Ozzie mentioned IMHO is the best. What is IMHO stands for?

Cheers!!!
