Goodbye Oink. I will miss your accessiblity of almost any music track I wanted. You reminded me of a evolved napster. Where am I to go now?

There is a fantastic blog post today about Oink and the record industry in general here:
http://www.demonbaby.com/blog/2007/10/when-pigs-fly-death-of-oink-birth-of.html
Long read but worth it I think.

LOL, I love the Pirate Bay.

http://www.oink.cd

Oink will never be the same if it's a public tracker with no rules. It's elitist attitude is what made it so great. Everyone was trying to keep their ratio's up and uploading new and hard to find older releases so that they wouldn't get kicked off.

I appreciate what PB is trying to do but I doubt I'll use their incarnation of oink.

that was a great article untalkative. I have felt that way for some time. I would like to buy cds, but I just could not bring myself to buy into the music industry. It will be a good day when the two part ways for good.

what two? the music industry and cds?

also, why is an elitist attitude appealing lou2ser?

lou2ser
10-27-2007, 03:49 PM
There is vastly less crap uploaded?

The user base is more intelligent?

Both good points. And by crap I mean transcodes, badly tagged releases, incomplete releases, etc. When you downloaded something from oink you knew it would be a good release, not something someone uploaded in a hurry.

what two? the music industry and cds?




yes. more specifically - the people who are motivated by nothing more then profiting on other peoples music and the people who actually make the music.

I understand there is a lot involved in production, but Iím not at all sympathetic to the record company execs who accumulated fortunes by controlling the distribution of music.

Aqualad
10-27-2007, 11:46 PM
that makes sense, because I don't mind cds. The music industry is bloated for sure, and that's not even the main problem. I mean, I wouldn't have half the cds I have if it wasn't for downloading.

On another note and to another, an elitist attitude is not required for complete downloads. I'm at a forum where we are able to request in one section and get our requests in another section, and I've never seen this problem, and there is little elitism. It's just not neccessary. I can understand people who care about their organization, but elitism simply isn't needed.

What.cd is up it's similar to oink. It's not great but it's something. It's getting more and more torrents every minute. it's invite only and i got 2 invites so let me know if your interested. Despite all the fake websites. Waffles.fm is the real deal. It opens november 1st . it's invite only but if you were a previous member of oink(and you can prove it with a screenshot of your profile or your oink invite) that you'll recieve an invite on november 1st

lou2ser
10-29-2007, 01:44 PM
Spiky, I'll take the other invite.

Regarding oink invites, I have no idea where mine is, but I'd say close to half the people on this board were invited by me, or by someone I invited. Just don't tell the cops that. :)


Anyone know how I can get a waffles invite?

if i get to know who's the admin i'll send him the screenshot of my email invite and i'll be happy to invite you to waffles!

Yesterday, they had a field at the bottom of the jkh.jkhnknklh.kjb,m.fm page that asked for your ,m.knk;,m username, e-mail address, and link to a picture of an xcvzvdzv-related screen shot that you were supposed to upload on Tinypic. Looks like they took that down. I don't know their e-mail address since they didn't give anything out, it was just those fields. Sorry I couldn't help =\ I'll be sure to invite you if they respond to what I sent in.

I'm not worried due to the fact that it was shut down by UK authorities and that I never uploaded or downloaded anything put out by a major label. No RIAA goons will be sent after me.

I'm also looking for a waffles invite... I have my old Oink email and can also provide a screenshot of other torrent sites that I have a good ratio at.

I heard that you'll now get 1 invite for every gig that you upload. I have lots to upload so I'll be happy to spread some invites around here!

Thanks!
