OK, After running a tracker for god knows how long, it seems to me that as soon as a torrent goes onto the 2nd page of browse, it may as well be dead, it will pick up a few downloaders every now and again over its lifetime, but nothing spectacular.
So do you think the browse page is fine the way it is (on nearly all trackers out there) and if not, how would you change it (because i have not got a clue lol).
It would be great if a 2 year old torrent, was just as popular as a brand new uploaded torrent, but lets face it they are not, Sometimes when i recycle a torrent, (bring it back to the top of browse from the bottom of browse) it will get 500 more snatches, and i just think, why the hell did they not just download it anyway. (so the people are there that want it, they either just do not know they want it because its on the last page, or they are scared to download it because its on the last page).
We came up with the SP system so everyone could download any torrent on the tracker whenever they liked, but most members cant see the wood for the trees and are still scared to touch old torrents.
So my argument is, what do they do on other sites, just hit and run on them, but even then, they are still going to take a ratio hit, so I have never understood the "SP only takes me to a 1 ratio so I wont download" argument i keep hearing, at least it gives you a 1 ratio.
This is just a quick rant/thread before I go to watch the match, but if you could change the browse page, how would you do it?
