    This is what the Redacted interview looks like.

    Hello guys.

    One of my friends has been banned from Redacted, so I'm gonna share with you the content of the interview.

    So here is the content of the interview, note that it will vary. There are like 5 differents questions you can have each time, so it won't be the same as here.

    It takes around 1 hour to answer.

    I highly recommend you to use this guide (Click here), which is way better than the interview website and gives waaaaay more concrete information.

    You may wait a lot of time before being interviewed (Typically 1 to 10 hours) you can do other things while waiting.

    BE CAREFUL NOT TO TAKE TOO MUCH TIME TO ANSWER. THEY'LL BAN YOU FROM THE INTERVIEW PROCESS IF THEY HAVE GOOD REASONS TO THINK THAT YOU CHEATED.

    * Now talking in #red-interview-07
    * Topic is 'RED :: Interview Room :: 07'

    <YOU> hi
    <%Interviewer> Hello YOU!
    <%Interviewer> -----------------------------------------
    <%Interviewer> -.-..-..---...... INTRO -.-..-..---......
    <%Interviewer> -----------------------------------------
    <%Interviewer> Howdy! I'm 04Interviewer and I'm going to be interviewing you today.
    <%Interviewer> It's important you consider that this interview can take up to 2 hours, so if you don't think you have the time just let me know and this won't be counted as a fail.
    <%Interviewer> If you leave for any reason after the questions have been shown, you 04will fail. A failure results in a 48 hour ban before you can take the interview again.
    <%Interviewer> You get 3 attempts at the interview TOTAL. After 3 failures you will not be invited to redacted by interview. You can however still be invited by another member.
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> I strongly suggest that you have studied before this interview. If you haven't yet, you can still leave and study at the interview-prep site (https://interviewfor.red/)
    <%Interviewer> If you have any questions about the interview or the process now is a great time to ask.
    <%Interviewer> If you would like to leave, just let me know.
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> When it comes to the interview, I have a few personal rules:
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> 1) Answers need to be numbered and on separate lines.
    <%Interviewer> 2) If you have any confusion about what a question is asking feel free to type: 04Interviewer and ask. NOTE: I will not help you answer the question.
    <%Interviewer> 3) Just because you don't know an answer doesn't (necessarily) mean you fail. If you don't know, just say so.
    <%Interviewer> 4) If you haven't heard from me, and I don't reply in 10-15 minutes please type my name another time. Keep in mind I'm a person and sometimes I miss your notification.
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> If you have no more questions, please just type my name: 04Interviewer
    <YOU> Interviewer
    <%Interviewer> -----------------------------------------
    <%Interviewer> -.-..-..---...... RULES -.-..-..---......
    <%Interviewer> -----------------------------------------
    <%Interviewer> Before we start your interview today we have to go over a couple of ground rules.
    <%Interviewer> 1) Use your own words. This interview is intended to gauge your knowledge. You don't need to sound like Wikipedia.

    <%Interviewer> -----------------------------------------------
    <%Interviewer> To start I'm going to need a screenshot of your 04torrent client.

    <%Interviewer> 1) The screenshot must be of your entire screen, this must include the entire taskbar or your dock. It must be uncropped and unresized.
    <%Interviewer> 2) Make sure that this chat is visible in each screenshot.
    <%Interviewer> 3) Blacking out passkeys and/or blacking out irc keys is the only editing allowed on the screenshot. Do NOT crop the screenshot at all.

    <%Interviewer> Congrats YOU you've passed the interview! You have demonstrated the knowledge we believe will help you succeed on the site.
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> The one thing I need to reiterate is 04POSTING THE CONTENTS OF THIS INTERVIEW OR SHOWING IT TO ANYONE WILL COST YOU YOUR ACCOUNT AND/OR YOUR CHANCE AT INTERVIEWING AGAIN.
    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> A couple things that I want you to keep in mind.
    <%Interviewer> 1) Your invitation will be sent to the email that you provided.
    <%Interviewer> 2) I will need you to sign onto redacted before you leave this channel.
    <%Interviewer> 3) redacted is not the easiest tracker to build a ratio on, however if you watch what you download and contribute to the site you should not have ratio problems.
    <%Interviewer> 4) Once you log onto the site, the first thing you should do is read the Rules and Wiki Even I still find myself frequently consulting these resources.
    <%Interviewer> 5) Before uploading be sure that you have familiarized yourself with the Upload rules. A torrent uploaded that breaks these rules will be removed and may even have additional punishments.
    <%Interviewer> 6) https://redacted.ch/torrents.php?freetorrent=1 These torrents are a great place to start in building yourself a good ratio.
    <%Interviewer> 7) Don't be afraid to share! The Forums and IRC are great places to meet people with similar music interests. - https://redacted.ch/wiki.php?action=article&id=22

    <%Interviewer>
    <%Interviewer> If you ever need help with anything on site or have any question feel free to PM me on site. My nick is the same (feel free to add me as a friend!!): 04Interviewer - https://redacted.ch/user.php?id=

    ____

    Basically, this is almost the same as the old interview process on What.cd.

    Note that once the interview is started, you may use any support to answer the question, nobody is watching your screen
    Knowing all that, it should be easy to get in!

    Good luck.

    Wow, thank you, i'll have to study a little bit if I ever want to pass one of those
    Even if I did some good rips,etc. I'm note sure I would be able to answer good on all the question about transcode (WAV, APE, etc.)
