{quoted:Pumprdlik} i'm pretty sure it told you your ratio would increase by 0.6%. this faq states upload debit is the better choice if your just interested in downloading as much music as possible. don't skim, read!

{quoted:airantas.rimkus} i'm kinda curious, how did you get almost MINUS 5000 points?

{quoted:karim.sabry} you're welcome :) give a man a bread and he can feed himself. teach him how to bake, and he can feed his village. teach him why baking works the way it does, and he might be able to figure out the cookies on his own :wink: knowing the details of why something works the way it does means you can figure out advanced/alternate uses, or fix/prevent problems. i personally find it easier to remember stuff in a usefull way when i have the details. the bigger/complete picture supplies a lot of the connections between the information you need and the specific situation you'r in. things become logical consequences of eachother, instead of random points of data. or at least that's how i experience it. anyways, thanks for the positive feedback :-)

staco, do you mean to say your ratio just went down like it was magic? when it comes to getting your ratio up again, maybe this post will help you as well. {quoted:fires} with how much you downloaded you would need around 14.4gb total upload for a ratio of 0.4. you are already at 7.1gb so its not that big of a stretch. as for the ???warned forever???, i'm not sure what this means. but i think getting you're ratio up would be a good start.

Great torrent! i can always apreciate some good lounge influences like in the begining of this set. i havn't finished listening yet, but it seems to progress towards a darker, somewhat more active ambience, while not losing its relaxing nature, but that might depend on what your used to. i'm 20 mins in and still enjoying it very much :-D

posted 6.7y ago in Invites you dont need
I'm sorry, those details are not documented anywhere and i have never used an invite before, it would find it suprising if that information just popped in my head out of nowhere. :-/ assumptions like this bother me, did you ever try verifying your assumptions before acting upon them? i.e: "if you use the award you can save the invite indefinatly, any reason you have not done so?" instead of insulting me, you would gotten an answer that explained why i did what :-/ i DID click the award, i was confronted with a choice of which i had no clue if it was final or not, so i choose not to make it until i was sure what to do with it. if i activate it as invite, would i still be able to get points if i can't find someone to invite? thanks for letting me know.

i currently have an invite to spare, if anyone wants to use it for a friend pm me. "this award expires on 2014-10-09 12:00:03, in 5 days" <--- server time, gmt +0

on mine it says 6 days, so i assume it started out as 7. you can use mine if you wanted to invite someone.

posted 6.8y ago in Becoming a power user is hard
i thought the same thing when i just got here, but... when i was here for three months, i had 1TB uploaded and 1MB downloaded, ratio of 1,000,000+. that's the upload requirement for poweruser every 4.5 days on average. my points went all to download debit or ratio-free awards. granted, i had some good times with the edc torrents, but power user is definitely not as impossible as it seems. Just don't forget about the point system. also, read this if you haven't already don so. it contains a lot of tips. http://www.tribalmixes.com/help.php i can see you are not seeding at this moment, if you can not seed 24/7 the point system is where its at, and you shouldn't go for ratio through seeding. just so we are clear, my tribalmixes folder is about 600gb, but my downloaded stat is only 10 at this moment. this is all due to how i use my points. my uploaded stat is 1.17tb now, so if i never took advantage of ratio-free awards and torrents, i would not be a power user!!! if i can negate 600gb of downloaded data just by doing my points every day, then you must be able to negate whatever you will need to download to get to that 50gb up, just be smart about it, keep an eye on your hit and runs and follow the advice in the link.

posted 6.8y ago in hit and run alerts
with 15gb more in uploaded or 8 gb less in download you'll have ratio of 2, at this point hit and runs don't matter, if i'm correct. so that might be another way to go.

agreed, that said, allow some time for changes to be developed and released. i'm pretty sure admin is either going to make some new awards or stuff, or just gonna rip the point/award system out. thing is, he has to do it all alone :( so it takes time.

i started this topic so i could share a bunch of videos about how copying is the essence of humanity, the source of our innovation and the enabler of our creative expressions. how copyright laws limit both consumers and producers in propagating their fields or simply limit the fun we enjoy as social beings. aside from that you can also see videos just for the inspiring feel they give or the experimental use of instruments, in the hope it might get your own creative juices flowing. if anyone has something that would fit this topic as well, feel free to post it. playlist: the remix DJs make remixes, cross-pollinating old sounds with new. But all of us engage in this conversation between the past and present, making ideas resonate over and over again. http://www.ted.com/playlists/156/the_remix 1. Mark Ronson How sampling transformed music Sampling isn't about "hijacking nostalgia wholesale," says Mark Ronson. It's about inserting yourself into the narrative of a song while also pushing that story forward. In this mind-blowingly original talk, watch the DJ scramble 15 TED Talks into an audio-visual omelette, and trace the evolution of "La Di Da Di," Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick's 1984 hit that has been reimagined for every generation since. 2.Kirby Ferguson Embrace the remix Nothing is original, says Kirby Ferguson, creator of Everything is a Remix. From Bob Dylan to Steve Jobs, he says our most celebrated creators borrow, steal and transform. 3. David Pogue The music wars New York Times tech columnist David Pogue performs a satirical mini-medley about iTunes and the downloading wars, borrowing a few notes from Sonny and Cher and the Village People. 4. Amanda Palmer The art of asking Don't make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan. 5.Matt Ridley When ideas have sex At TEDGlobal 2010, author Matt Ridley shows how, throughout history, the engine of human progress has been the meeting and mating of ideas to make new ideas. It's not important how clever individuals are, he says; what really matters is how smart the collective brain is. 6. Lawrence Lessig Re-examining the remix Former "young Republican" Larry Lessig talks about what Democrats can learn about copyright from their opposite party, considered more conservative. A surprising lens on remix culture. 7. Johanna Blakley Lessons from fashion's free culture Copyright law's grip on film, music and software barely touches the fashion industry ... and fashion benefits in both innovation and sales, says Johanna Blakley. In her talk, she talks about what all creative industries can learn from fashion's free culture. 8.Rives A mockingbird remix of TED2006 Rives recaps the most memorable moments of TED2006 in the free-spirited rhyming verse of a fantastical mockingbird lullaby. A remix/concatenation of a four-part documentary by Kirby Ferguson&#8201;—&#8201;a writer, director and producer who has created dozens of comedic short films and gotten over four million views on the web&#8201;—&#8201;in which he argues that everything is a remix, and that all original material builds off of and remixes previously https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9ryPC8bxqE Mark Applebaum writes music that breaks the rules in fantastic ways, composing a concerto for a florist and crafting a musical instrument from junk and found objects. This quirky talk might just inspire you to shake up the “rules” of your own creative work. http://www.ted.com/talks/mark_applebaum_the_mad_scientist_of_music In a highly entertaining performance, beatboxer Tom Thum slings beats, comedy and a mouthful of instrumental impersonations into 11 minutes of creativity and fun that will make you smile. http://www.ted.com/talks/tom_thum_the_orchestra_in_my_mouth Percussionist Sivamani delivers one of TED's liveliest and most inventive performances yet. He uses traditional Western and Eastern instruments to create a rhythmic tour de force, along with a tub of water, corrugated metal, spoons, luggage, our stage props and even a little audience participation. http://www.ted.com/talks/sivamani_rhythm_is_everything_everywhere Composer Sxip Shirey makes music from the simple, dramatic act of breathing — alone and together. Open your ears to a passionate 3 minutes. http://www.ted.com/talks/sxip_shirey_at_the_breathing_place Musician and inventor Onyx Ashanti demonstrates "beatjazz" — his music created with two handheld controllers, an iPhone and a mouthpiece, and played with the entire body. At TED's Full Spectrum Auditions, after locking in his beats and loops, he plays a 3-minute song that shares his vision for the future of music. http://www.ted.com/talks/onyx_ashanti_this_is_beatjazz playlist: virtuosos Stunning performances straight from the TED stage. These musicians will transport you with their instrumental mastery. http://www.ted.com/playlists/18/virtuosos 1. Pamelia Kurstin The untouchable music of the theremin Virtuoso Pamelia Kurstin performs and discusses her theremin, the not-just-for-sci-fi electronic instrument that is played without being touched. Songs include "Autumn Leaves," "Lush Life" and David Mash’s "Listen, Words Are Gone." 2. Sirena Huang An 11-year-old's magical violin Violinist Sirena Huang gives a technically brilliant and emotionally nuanced performance. In a charming interlude, the 11-year-old praises the timeless design of her instrument. 3. Preston Reed, Usman Riaz A young guitarist meets his hero Usman Riaz is a 21-year-old whiz at the percussive guitar, a style he learned to play by watching his heroes on YouTube. The TED Fellow plays onstage at TEDGlobal 2012 — followed by a jawdropping solo from the master of percussive guitar, Preston Reed. And watch these two guitarists take on a very spur-of-the-moment improv. 4.Natalie MacMaster, Thomas Dolby Cape Breton fiddling in reel time Violinist Natalie MacMaster and TED Musical Director Thomas Dolby play Dolby’s original song “Blue Is a River” in this ethereal duet — with a little dancing. 5. Evelyn Glennie How to truly listen In this soaring demonstration, deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie illustrates how listening to music involves much more than simply letting sound waves hit your eardrums. 6. David Holt The joyful tradition of mountain music Folk musician and storyteller David Holt plays the banjo and shares photographs and old wisdom from the Appalachian Mountains. He also demonstrates some unusual instruments like the mouth bow — and a surprising electric drum kit he calls "thunderwear." 7. Kaki King Playing "Pink Noise" on guitar Kaki King, the first female on Rolling Stone's "guitar god" list, rocks out to a full live set at TED2008, including her breakout single, "Playing with Pink Noise." Jaw-dropping virtuosity meets a guitar technique that truly stands out. 8. Joshua Roman, Robert Gupta On violon and cello, "Passacaglia" It's a master class in collaboration as violinist Robert Gupta and cellist Joshua Roman perform Halvorsen's "Passacaglia" for violin and viola. Roman takes the viola part on his Stradivarius cello. It's powerful to watch the two musicians connect moment to moment (and recover from a mid-performance hiccup). The two are both TED Fellows, and their deep connection powers this sparkling duet.

ow, i messed up the info on one of the vid's i posted :whistle: , so that's why i would like to edit/delete. :o) i'm not sure it'd be a commonly used feature though. *after mannualy searching the list, and realizing searching by poster/uploader doesn't properly work* http://www.tribalmixes.com/enjoy-one.php?id=10329 this would be the one to delete if you find it needed.

{quoted:moocowdan} in the same spirit i would love it if the title and description (perhaps just the first x chars) where shown in this list, i understand the like/dislike buttons are so huge for a reason, but i think there is room for a short text. the comments and other info on the video could be collapsed under the vid, using the existing buttons as tabs. splitting into tracks and mixes might be done by a duration filter, only a few rare tracks pass 10 minutes, while most mixes are atleast 15 minutes. i also missed a delete/edit button :(. that said, i'm loving this feature and its helping me kill a lot of time, and getting to know more good music :D
