List All new uploads are protected from overseeding for the first 48 hours they are on the tracker.
List Overseeding is defined as exceeding a 3.0 ratio on any new torrent by anyone with a 100% copy except the original uploader:
Global ratios are not considered.
List Partial downloads that are seeded to 3.0 or beyond are covered under this rule.
List All member classes, including VIPs and uploaders, are subject to the 3.0 ratio limit on protected torrents. Only the original uploader is exempt.
List When the 48-hour period has expired, the torrent is not subject to any ratio limitation.
List The original uploader is strongly encouraged to report any offenders to Staff or use the report button within the 48-hour protection period.
Reports received will be processed this way:
1st report: The overseeder will receive a PM from the staff, and will have his or her account parked
2nd report: The overseeder will receive a PM, will have his or her account parked, and a 6 hour delay to download new torrents applied to his or her account
3rd report: An additional delay of 6 hours to download new torrents will be added to the previous 6 hour delay to download new torrents.
4th report: An additional delay of 6 hours to download new torrents will be added to the previous 12 hour delay to download new torrents.
5th report: An additional delay of 6 hours to download new torrents will be added to the previous 18 hour delay to download new torrents.
At that point an overseeder will be waiting 24 hours to download any new torrents.
If he/she has not modified his/her client or behavior the staff will continue to add 6 hours per violation to the account.
Please be aware that these delays cannot be appealed.
List While the original uploader is not affected by the overseeding rule, we expect a certain degree of moderation in seeding their uploads, especially from those with fast connections.
List We expect downloaders to setup their torrent clients to stop or slow seeding speed at a ratio well below the 3.0 limit.
List Members are encouraged to restart the torrent once the 48-hour term has expired and seed it for a long term.
Also there is now an email address for banned members to communicate with staff.
is the address.
