If you want to contribute to the PirateBay by uploading content, you must first get a username and password, as only registered users can do so. Once you are a registered user, do the following steps to upload a file:
Step 1: prepare the file. Remember that PirateBay’s users usually scan the lists of torrents without putting much attention to them. Thus, try to give the files names that fully describe their content. In addition, collect as much info about the file(s) as you can, and keep it, so you can use this data later on in the description of the torrent’s content.
Important info includes the file format and size. Also, consider a basic explanation of the content, such as the year of release of a movie, the author of a book, the titles of the songs included, and any other facts that you believe may be of interest to the Pirate Bay’s users.
Step 2: login to the Pirate Bay official site. You will find a menu item for uploads. Click on it.
Step 3: you will be asked to upload the file from your computer. Follow the steps. Include all the info that you had collected. However, remember to remain anonymous. It is not wise to reveal your true identity, as the Pirate Bay has a history of controversy.
Step 4: logout.
Step 5: go to the Pirate Bay and download the file. Check that it arrived uncorrupted on your machine. And thank you for collaborating with the Pirate Bay. As pirates say: sharing is caring.
