Thread: Elitist Private tracker sites with overly strict rules, good or bad?

  1. #1
    I think they're good..

    say for example if you dont seed till your ratio is 1 then you are banned, then that means speeds will increase... on bitmetv i get loads of new episodes as they are released during the week.. Lost, OC, 24, Desperate Housewives, Family Guy Name is Earl, etc... I always get 1000kbps... I then seed till +1...

    it is so much better this way.. on the free trackers i only ever get shit speeds because no one bothers to seed..
    this is the best way..

    Not quite sure how requiring a ratio of 1 is either elitist or overly strict, but i think its a good idea.

    New to Torrents but always continuiously seed. Hit 6,900% on the last one! Now If I could just get invited to a cool site!!

    Private trackers with limited invites really help to cut down on cheaters and pure leechers.

    It's frustrating trying to get into these sites, but they certainly seem like a good idea once you're in.

    Assuming that there is no way for outsiders to access a torrent, the average ratio of ALL the members must be 1.0 - that means that as soon as you get someone with a ratio above 1 then someone else must have a ratio below 1.

    By that logic, if you require everyone to seed until their ratio is 1 then anyone who goes above 1 is a bad member because they are preventing others from achieving the requirement.

    Clearly, that would be nonsense, but it is a direct consequence of the requirement that everyone seeds until they achieve a ratio of 1. A lower ratio is therefore a sensible achievable requirement.

    A far more sensible approach is the concept of targeting "hit and run" users. There are times when a popular torrent will fail because the seeders have reached their "requirement" and stop seeding. I'd far rather see someone with a low ratio who is prepared to seed as long as someone wants the torrent, than someone who dumps a torrent simply because their ratio for that torrent is high.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    They are extremely good but, if there are too many seeders and not enough leechers and restrictions on uploading material then it can cause problems keeping a good ratio. If you d/l a file and it completes in 3 hours, then aftre that you have 100 seeders and 2 leechers, it is very difficult to seed the torrent.

    I think they are good in general, it's just that you'd need to be a little careful what you dl so you don't ruin your ratio.
