    Awesome-HD News - AHD is opening its doors to x264 refugees

    With the passing away of x264 we, the staff of AHD, have decided to open our doors to any of their refugees who wish to join our site.

    To those x264 members who are not acquainted with AHD, let's just say that the two sites share a similar mission and ethos. We are anHD/UHD tracker with focus on movies and TV Shows (whole seasons only!) and our internal encoders are considered some of the best on the web.

    To apply for an account you must go here: https://awesome-hd.me/application.php





    1) enter a valid email address, 2) supply at least one screenshot proof of actual x264 membership (either account screenshot or torrents seeded) and 3) a short description of your tracker history or any and all info you think could be relevant.

    As always, skilled encoders are always welcome and if you're not then you'll find that we have great resources on the how-to's once you have signed up.

    New Content

    With the heavy increase in UHD material with HDR over the past many months, we, the staff and internal team, feel it is time to embrace x265 encodes. The x265 encoder has one main advantage over the x264 encoder: the ability to carry HDR metadata. For this reason, x265 encodes will only be allowed for UHD blu-ray's with HDR and only at resolutions 1080p and 2160p. UHD blu-ray's without HDR should be encoded with the x264 encoder as usual. See THIS for an overview of what content is allowed.

    Our internals have been extensively testing the x265 encoder to a point where we are now comfortable with it. Based on these tests, we have established a set of minimum requirements needed for an x265 encode to be given the AHD Gold badge. At the same time, we have updated the AHD Gold requirements for x264 encodes. The minimum requirements for AHD Gold may be found HERE, but note that the requirements for x265 encodes may change in the future as we grow wiser. To accomodate this, we have updated our MediaInfo checker.

    To celebrate this milestone, we promise you plenty of internal x265 encodes in the coming weeks. To add to that, all internal x265 encodes uploaded from the time of this news post will be given 100% freeleech until October 31st, 2018.

    Awesome-HD News - Halloween Treats

    'Tis the Season

    Deck the halls with bowels of holly
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    'Tis the season to be scary
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Don we now our creepy apparel
    Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
    Troll the ancient Halloween carol
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    See the blazing bonfire before us.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Strike the harp and join the chorus.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Follow me in horrible measure.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    While I tell of satanic treasure.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

    As you all probably know by now, Halloween is a special holiday around here. This year is no different.

    And what would Halloween be without testing your luck with AHD's very own Trick or Treat here. As always the rewards can be great but so can the punishments.
    (Remember the top of the page is cached and tricks/treats can take some time to show there. Don't PM us about it unless you're sure an error has happened)

    Should you be unlucky and find that the glorp-monster is roaming your neighborhood then your best bet is to hold on to your buddies and barricade yourselves indoors.

    For that reason, here are some movies handpicked by the staff to keep y'all occupied so you don't develop cabin fever or something.

    All picks are 100% freeleech. Any torrents added to them after this news post will not be freeleech

    Picks

    Awesome-HD News - Hiring Torrent Moderators

    Hiring Torrent Moderators

    We are in need of new torrent moderators to help us moderate all new site uploads. This involves checking if new uploads follow our rules and, if not, file a torrent report that notifies the uploader how to proceed.

    More specifically, we are looking for users that

    • have a good track record on the site,
    • have the time and interest in taking the position - expect around one hour per day on average,
    • are willing to be on IRC,
    • are meticulous,
    • are familiar with our upload rules or willing to learn them by heart,
    • are patient and willing to help out our users when they make mistakes.



    If you think the role is for you and have been a member of the site for at least 1 year, you may apply by submitting a StaffPM with all details you may find relevant. Make sure to direct it to Staff, not First Line Support. At the minimum you should respond to the following questions:

    • Why do you want the position?
    • How much time are you able to spend on moderating duties?
    • Which hours do you expect to be active (include your timezone) and are you willing to be on IRC during these?
    • What is your experience with uploading torrents, reading MediaInfo output and creating screenshots?



    If you're picked for the position, we will make sure to give you the proper training.

    We're looking forward to hearing from you. This is your chance to give back to the AHD community.
