Opinion? Current best torrent aggregator

Postby loninappleton » Tue Dec 23, 2008 4:24 pm

I have been using Mininova and eztv exclusively plus OBT. I upload to Demoinoid but wonder if there is a best overall
site not in my awareness.

What's the current pick for best overall torrent aggregator site? Best thing about mininova is the
users give warnings about bad torrents, password protected and such in their comments section.

So it's like Bit Che.

Agrregator may be the wrong word.

A more recent, improved, less commercial version of Mininova is the goal. Aside from the annoying animated ads,
Mininova seems to get a lot of duplicates designed to take up the front page.

There is no one good torrent site..
If your looking for file's I would day get
bit che or


preform torrent searches using google... Here are a couple of good examples.
If ad's are bugging you use and ad blocker.

Ads are bad but filling up the front page with duplicates means I can miss things-- one urrent movie title in particular.

Well thanks. With Bit Che and mininova I guess that's still about the best -- also to include OBT (One Big Torrent).

But OBT isn't on the aggegators. Too bad. They have unique material. I sort of found that by myself.

I agree, http://www.torrentzen.com/ is pretty damn fast, and it aggregates torrent details rather nicely.

Yes I mean torrent search sites.

Aggregators are for things like RSS feeds that collect new postings and then deliver that
in the manner you select.

ISO Hunt doesn't have any commentary that I recall. Also Mininova acknowledged the uploader with a 'thank you'
feature.

So you're looking at it from the uploader's point of view?

The thank yous are a courtesy to the uploader. The comments often tell if something is good or not. These are not
critical opinions but comments on video and audio.
