I've been discussing a possible big project with a friend who might help me with the more technical side while I run the front end. I'd like your preliminary thoughts on some of the things we are thinking of doing. Everything is very early on though.
Basically we came up with these rules in order to make the perfect big tracker that could run on the light, quick Gazelle code.
No rar files. No pretimes. Nonscene and all users can upload.
No ratio. We'd calculate your total traffic and report that to everyone.
Anonymous mode for everyone, lots of security and privacy features. The goal is to create a big site where everyone can upload pretty much anything, but feel secure.
Open signups at first and being liberal with invites, with the goals of 10k in year 1 then 25k in year 2, etc.
No seedboxes allowed except for uploaders. (this one is our most revolutionary I think so it is definitely subject to negotiation)
Basically the goal would be to create a modern Demonoid that eventually gets massive. It would be easier and better to run on Gazelle, keeping the tracker fairly private and growing slowly.
