New staffers

Posted by Duki3003 at 15:47 pm on November 7<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

Although there was a surprisingly small turnout in the latest recruitment drive, hopefully what we didn't get in quantity we got in quality.
So after being subjected to personal hell in the proving grounds, more or less unscathed, new staffers are:

  ● carks
  ● lololitas
  ● macros74

Trick or Freeleech! Happy Halloween!

Posted by Nodame-chan at 23:21 pm on October 30<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

Greetings everyone! The weather is getting colder and colder day by day, the trees are losing their green and dressing up in red and brown, the winter holidays are getting closer, you can almost feel the Christmas spirit in the chilly streets. 2016 is right around the corner!
But right now what matters most is another holiday! All Saints' Eve!

This is the night when everything gets as spooky as it can, this is the night when horrors will befall you and you will be dragged into a world of ghosts, witches, goblins, and every other horrific creature you can imagine! This is the night when the thin layer separating the world of the living from the world of the dead breaks!

You come to the mansion of BakaBT household, and knock on the gates. They open and you get your treat!

BakaBT staff presents you with a weeklong freeleech on the horror keyword! Enjoy the holidays! Merry Halloween!

*Staff applications 2015* II take

Posted by Duki3003 at 23:32 pm on October 10<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

As previously mentioned, the time has come for a new recruitment drive. We're heavily understaffed with currently only 2 - 2.5 active staff members trying to manage every part of BakaBT due to various circumstances.

Requirements are still the same as before - and this should go without saying but -

» Quote
We are not looking for temporary help, that is staff members that will disappear after a month or so. If you choose to apply please be sure that you want to commit your time to being a mod in the long run.

If you cannot commit to that, please do not waste our time by applying.
But you believe you're up to the task leave us a comment here telling us a bit about yourself and why you feel you would make an excellent contributing staff member.

The standard requirements are, of course, still in effect:

What we're looking for:
- Familiar with our Wiki info.*
- Familiar with our torrent offer system.*
- Knows how to make a comparison of releases.
- Know how to interpret comparisons, and make a weighted decision on a release.
- Respectable, not a douche.
- Must know how to use IRC. This is our main form of contact.*
- As always, can speak coherent English...

*very important~!

Not as important, but a plus:
- Knows HTML/php coding
- Has a fast/respectable connection (For quickly obtaining different releases for comparison purposes)

If you have decent knowledge of Japanese, please don't forget to mention it. This, of course, will not be a deciding and/or eliminating factor, but will be a big plus for your application.

There is no requirement on how long you have to be a member to be considered. However if you are a ghost, your chances are non-existent.
Which means - show us what you can do. Comment on pending offers, get involved in the release discussions on the forums, provide comparisons you will be required to make if you get accepted.
We don't hire randomly, we will do a background check on you. If you partook in the end of summer clean up and did a good job, that too will be a bonus for you. If you haven't it's still not to late to get involved and noticed, there's still quite a number of torrents left available for adoption.

Applications will be open for 2 weeks - that is until 25.10.2015.
Any questions you can find me on IRC, or consult with a staff member.
Submit your applications here. All applications sent through PM will be automatically rejected!

End of Summer clean up

Posted by Duki3003 at 21:58 pm on September 9<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

Summer is nearly over for us in the Northern Hemisphere, and with it we think it's due time for a little clean up, because winter is coming!

This summer has brought us a lot of big changes in the inner workings, look and feel of the site, some more welcome than others, however, another thing it brought was a plague of washed up ads replacing most of our images hosted on imageshack. Luckily we have a solution, but a clean up is due.
All torrents that are still using imageshack in any shape or form are put to adoption. BakaSHOTS has been in service for quite some time now, so there has been more than enough time for torrent owners to port their images.

As some of the more observant users may have already noticed, we made some updates to the adoption system to accommodate this, making it more useful then it already was. The new addition - Bounty.
Bounty is how many bonus points you will be rewarded upon successful completion of an adoption. It will also increase daily, to give motivation for more unpopular torrents, and can now be a great way of boosting/fixing your ratio.

Depending on the task it can be:

          ● 1/10 of the amount for a small edit,
          ● 1.0x default amount,
          ● 1.5x for a good job,
          ● 2.5x for an awesome job

Usual rules for adopting still apply, you have to write a short request with your motivation behind adopting (what's wrong with it, what do you intend to fix), and you have to own the files before adopting. And to prove that you do own them you should have the torrent in your active list as seeding.

Additionally, there will be a staff recruitment soon, probably in few weeks, so if you were thinking of applying as staff, this can be a good way of showing an interest in the site and rack up some points.

RIP Sir Christopher Lee.

Posted by Nodame-chan at 18:58 pm on June 12<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

On June 7th the world of cinema had a huge loss. Sir Christopher Lee, an actor of great talent, vigour and excellence passed away.
He was 93 years old, but nonetheless he was awesome. He kept acting till the very end.

Sir Christopher Lee has starred in over 200 movies, but his most memorable part, for me personally, is his Saruman in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Even though a villain, his Saruman was loved and respected. It was beyond perfect.
He was a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, and was the only person on LOTR's whole crew and cast who had actually met Tolkien.

Sir Christopher Lee's death made me sad, but he had lived a long and memorable life. I hope he can find peace in the Grey Havens. RIP.

As a tribute to Sir Christopher Lee and to celebrate his life, we are making the fantasy and sci-fi keywords freeleech for the weekend.

Recent downtime

Posted by Duki3003 at 20:02 pm on May 9<sup><i>th</i></sup> 2015

As most of you may have noticed we've been down for 2 days now, and main reason for this downtime was plain and simple hardware failure.
Considering that this was mostly out of our hands, we can't promise that it is 100% fixed, so further downtimes are possible. Hopefully our service provider has finally solved the situation and this won't happen again.
As this forced us to meddle, we took this opportunity to fix up some security holes we spotted, and update and upgrade the backend of the site.

If you have issues logging in, clear your cookies and cache, and you should be able to log in again.

Big thanks to Force for bringing us back on track.

I will slowly bring everything back online, note that there are no performance tweaks at all as we lost those sadly enough.
