I want you to consider me as a staff member. I really like BakaBT, because it’s the best tracker I’ve ever known. The amount of material BakaBT has to offer is huge, but that’s not the most important point. The torrents are actually seeded very well and the descriptions contain all information an average person could need. Not to forget: all offers are getting checked on quality which results on accepting only the best available releases. I like this way of archiving and I want to help keeping BBT on its tracks.
Just seeding and uploading new offers isn’t satisfying for me anymore. The offers list is huge and especially anime takes a very long time before getting accepted. I want to speed things up by offering my time to the community.
I’m 22 years old and I’m studying Biomedical Engineering/research. I have two nationalities: Turkish and Dutch. I was born and raised in the Netherlands while having Turkish parents. I’m comfortable using Dutch, Turkish and English. I can comprehend German and I know a little bit of Japanese. I’m afraid my current level of Japanese isn’t useful to the community, but useful enough to get my basic needs in Japan.
I like computer hardware which resulted me in building my own pc. I can play the saz
and piano. I’m especially obsessed with classical music and I’m going to learn how to play Sonata No. 8 from Beethoven
when the time is right.
I of course like anime and that’s why I found out about BBT.
I’m familiar with the FAQ and Wiki info. I have to admit that I didn’t memorize all small details, but I’m pretty confident about how things work here. I help other community members by answering questions when something is unclear.
As an uploader I know how the torrent offer system works (from an uploaders perspective). I’m especially proud about the remux
I made for the community.
I only offered anime so far. I however know on big lines how to offer manga or a soundtrack collection. I want to be useful, so I’m open to learn anything. Secretly I want to specialize on anime, because that’s the major problem I see at the moment.
I made many comparisons of anime and I think I’m getting the hang of it. Almost all of my anime offers are delivered with a comparison. I also got a tip from someone to actually interpret my comparisons. So I took that advice. You can find them here
I try to capture scenes where encoding problems are the most likely found. (eg. Scenes with large difference of contrast, scenes with a lot of action/movement, places with a lot of details, etc). I started understanding how to make a decision, however I first want to learn what the exact standards for certain points are. I can’t see how staff members are working, so I don’t know how everything is processed yet.
I know the difference between containers and codecs and the difference between lossy and lossless compression. I know the advantages of 10-bit video encoding.
I learnt how to use/access IRC since a few weeks and I even got the opportunity to talk to other members.
About my coding skills. Well, I ‘learnt’ how to code XHTML and CSS at secondary school, but I managed to pass the courses without learning too much. I can understand the source code of any description here at BBT and I can (heavily) modify them to use it on my own offers. Don’t expect me to build a code from scratch. I can proudly show you some of my descriptions: 1
I’m a bandwidth junkie, so obtaining anime series within minutes is normal for me. About being a ghost: I really tried my best to get involved as much as possible in the community this year. There’s however one important principle I’m following. I don’t respond to topics/conversations where I don’t have anything to contribute to. So maybe I’m not recognized by some people, but I really wish I’m being recognized. I was very happy to see ridon mentioned me here. Thanks for acknowledging me!
It’s funny about the fact that I spend more time on BBT than actually watching anime. My goal is to process one (anime) offer each 1 or 2 day(s). I can do staff work for around 2 hours a day. Usually I’m online for even a longer period of time. Like macros mentioned, I also live by CET standards.
I really hope you consider to accept me. よろしくおねがいします。
Edit: I added more comparisons
