I see a problem here.
Before Oink was shut down we had 189,034 users and 204,000 torrents= 1.08 torrents per user. Essentially if one user seeded just ONE torrent with a few seeding two torrents at anytime (assuming all the torrents were different), there would be no dead torrents. Ofc with 1 seed you have no idea what kinda speed you would expect. Realistically the average torrenter might have had 5 torrents seeding from oink at any given time given time. Assuming normal distribution, the average torrent at oink would have 5 seeders. With a large userbase such as this it would be easy to prevent an excess of dead torrents.
Now lets look at waffles.
Registered users31,467 Total Torrents126,502
so the AVERAGE USER needs to seed 4 torrents assuming none of them are the same torrents being seeded by someone else. We all know that most don't leave their comps running their torrent client 24/7. I start wondering what if its a certain 1000 users that have 500 torrents seeding 24/7 or something because there is a great number of seeds at waffles. The next thought is how unstable this could be if something bad happened to this small niche of users.
Therefore I request that if there are any waffles staff are in here, they raise the user limit.
I know this argument isn't always valid. There more users@ what and about the same number of torrents but so many are poorly seeded. I hypothesize this is because many members at what have an acc at waffles and most originally prefered waffles for the design/features/layout/etc, and now prefer it simply because that where all the seeds are at.
