Want an invite to What.cd? There are two ways of going about it… the first requires somebody who can get you an invite, the other is by hitting up the IRC channel for what.cd.
Before attempting this you need to know that what.cd is a ratio site. In other words, this ain’t PirateBay. You can’t just leech until you’re done and drop the file. You need to maintain a ratio on the site. So only try to join What.cd if you are serious about keeping a good upload/download ratio and just not going to join just to download as much as possible and not upload anything.
To join follow these steps:
Download an IRC client. I’ve used MIRC for years… give it a shot. You can download it here www.mirc.com.
Once installed join the What.cd IRC server: irc.what.cd Port 6667.
Once you have connected join the channel #what.cd-invites
DO NOT GO TO ANOTHER CHANNEL AND ASK FOR AN INVITE, YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM THE CHANNEL OR IGNORED
When in the channel read the instructions that are given.
UPDATE: Ok the admins of what.cd contacted me and there is an update to the process. You MUST provide a speedtest.net screenshot before entering the queue. Also obtain some screenshots of your ratios on other private sites, if you belong to them. If you want the full scoop they have a handy link with full info here.
When you get invited to an interview room you will be asked a few question about yourself, how much you know about music e.g. do you know what a FLAC file is? You might need to provide an image of your upload/download ratio of another private Bittorrent site(s). You’ll be asked to show your upload/download speed from SpeedNet. So before you go to an interview room be sure to have uploaded your upload/download ratio to a personal web space, Imageshack, etc for quick access.
Type !queue speedtest_link_goes_here into the channel and you will be added to the waiting list to be interviewed for an invite. Be patient waiting in the queue can take friggen forever, seriously… up to 4 hours or even longer. It must be worth it though, they’re serious about the people the let in.
If they accept you and are willing to give you an invite they will ask for your email address and then they will send you an invite. Follow the instructions and you’re off to go. The process is long… but worth it.
