I did say this would happen in the old thread. People are bored. You gave them something to kill time with.
i think when they say best quality. they should really mean all around audio, video & subs in the format they are looking for. i really think they go for acc & flac more then the original files on HD version. bakabt is a matter of being the best. but when it all comes down to it. it doesn't matter if your offer is the best or not. it has to meet or beat the audio, video & sub's standards before it will get approved.
If that was the definition why should anyone bother wasting time experimenting with compression settings and finding appropriate crf and things. Quality, to us anyway, is about achieving relative transparency at a much smaller size than the original file. That is the most difficult part of a release. Otherwise, we'd be running a site of remuxes. Sure some people like that, and they use sites like ADC and similar. If you want to make Anime Passion a site for that, go for it! It would probably be of use to several people. That's not what BakaBT is for. We try to maintain a balance between good picture and audio and subs while still attempting to minimize the file sizes.
With respect to your comment on audio, why would we want the original file on the Blu Ray? What's the point? If you encode the same thing to FLAC you save significant space, with an identical audio output. If you encode that into a high bitrate AAC track, yeah then you lose something, but discerning that is beyond the ability of most people. Your own audio setup might add more distortion than the compression of the file in such a case. Why take a 1.5 GB DTS-HD track, when you can get a 1 GB FLAC track that has an identical set of data?
EDIT: i have been thinking about asking to have all my releases removed from the site.
The releases of yours that we have taken have been enjoyed by plenty of people are are still seeded pretty well. Why abandon a future fan just because we didn't see eye to eye on a different release?
now that is just to funny. in the past they didn't care if member were acting like kids. Cman has gone and broke BakaBT with his offer.
well i have nothing against BakaBT and their vast collection of great releases. i only REALLY REALLY dislike the "politics" behind getting something approved. and some people there can just be soo damn rude it isnt funny.
Yes. You're completely right. And I hate it. But what do you expect me to do? Keep hitting refresh for everything, reading all the threads and deleting every single troll comment? I can't possibly keep track of all 200,000 people and strictly enforce respect. This goes for me and the other staffers; it isn't that we don't care. But we aren't omnipotent. If you PM me or someone else and say "this person is being rude" or "this thread has become a flame war", then we will follow up your complaint and delete comments, lock threads, and issue warnings as necessary. But you can't just expect me to be aware of everything. I didn't even have time to sign on yesterday when all this happened overnight. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. This site is bound to attract troll as well. Hell maybe I'm a troll by some standards.
BTW, that image is fantastic!
