Welcome to Lemmy, I'm one of the devs and admins for this instance. Being pro-piracy, and allowing torrent magnet links 🏴‍☠️ , is one of the original reasons I started working on lemmy ( even a lot of the better reddit alts refuse to allow magnet links, or be pirate-friendly). One of the best ways to keep the stream alive, is by decentralizing the ways we find and access content. Torrents do this directly for data, but I hope that lemmy, as a federated reddit alternative, can eventually serve as a platform to aggregate, post, and comment on pirated data in a decentralized way. [More info about Lemmy including docs, how federation works, and a good onboarding site.]( Welcome aboard!

How do I check if my torrents are on a certain tracker?
Let's say I have a list of 10 files and I enter a new tracker and want to start seeding those files that already being shared on the tracker. How can I acheive that? Moreover, it would be useful to show which files do not have any seeder on the tracker where I could jump right in. Is there some script/ software for it?

P2P communities?
I'm trying to set up DC++ but it only works on my friend's router. I've tried a bunch of stuff. Is there a lemmy, discord, subreddit, any forum or community that would be able to help me troubleshoot?

How to reverse engineer a torrent from a file?
Hi, I've got a file that I torrented (Linux distro .mkv). My goal is to seed that file again. I do not have the original torrent file anymore because I broke my server (multiple times) and lost data. Is there a tool that searches for the right torrent? The tool should create a hash and compare the file's hash with all the hashes of all the linux torrents from the sites I use. That's at least how I imagine such a tool would work. I got the torrent from a good private tracker and I was able to redownload the torrent file for that file but others were from public sources I can't find.

Describing my perfect p2p file-sharing program
I want to have a clearer idea of what features this program could have. Contribute your own ideas. - It would allow searching for files and directories. - It would allow browsing users shared directories for content discovery. - Users could mark other users as 'favorites'. - You add files and they are scanned without hashing so people can download directly from you. After they are scanned they are hashed so that the network has swarming. The more people with a file the faster it downloads. I think this should be optional per folder and activated by default, because hashing too many files takes too long. Someone could want to enable swarming only for certain folders with bigger files. - A central server with a collaborative database to track collections, file names, file hashes, file tags, user searches. - Content suggestion based on past searches, ratings, interests, etc. - User suggestion based on interests. - Collections. Users would be able to wishlist a collection instead of searching for individual files. The collection would be downloaded automatically, as the files become available, based on the user preferences, for resolution, bitrate or whatever. Collections would be collaboratively curated like the rest of the database. Users could also wishlist individual files. - Monetization. A credit system to reward users who share the best, most popular or rarest files. Users would be able to download a few files per day for free but if they want to download more they need to keep a share ratio of 1 or higher or get a subscription. - Users would see the agreed upon name of each file from the database instead of the name other users have given it. - Typical search where instead of searching the server you are searching for currently available files and folders. Fuzzy search with advanced options like: exact match, exclude, or, `*` parameter to match anything. Greater than, less than, or a combination of both for: size, date (age), number of files (in folders), number of seeders. - Keep track of when files where shared. Useful to search for new files from a user.
