This has got nothing to do with reforming the WTAW so dont worry.
The way it is atm, submitted Tracker reviews are public and anyone can make one, as soon as a tracker review gets acccepted you get straight into the WTAW thread. obviously some tracker owners do not want their site to be there, but once its there its impossible to get it off.
So here is my suggestion.
Tracker reviews should be like the report section, private betwenn the OP and the Mods.
If just a member has posted a review (you dont know if they are a good member or someone thats just been banned, and trying to get an exclusive site noticed.) then the mods try to get intouch with the owner/staff of those trackers.
and ask them if they would like a review on here, also offer them CR and explain what that entails (invite trading/acccount trading etc etc).
If they say yes, they want a review, make sure they know it will never be removed.
If they say no, then they cant have CR but then its a free for all in the invites/account trading etc.
Just with a couple of trackers lately, who do not want to be on that list, but cant get removed because a "member" made the review, imo that member might as well have grabbed 1000 torrents off those trackers and changed the announce to a null announce and uploaded them to the link sites, mininova etc.
We are also working on a new project as well, and i dont want it to be listed in the WIAW thread, but if a member makes a review, i cant do anything to stop it.
No one will probably care about this tbh, but i do think that it "might" bring FST and tracker staff closer (if thats possible lol)
