Thread: Unable to log onto SuperTorrents

  1. #1
    I was a member of Supertorrents untill last night when i invited my flatmate to join but as we're on the same router it looks as if i have two accounts and looks to have banned me. I have an invite for it and wondered if there was a way i could get back on, maybe if my IP address was changed?

    2006-10-07 - Ok, all ST members are informed via mass PM system we're dealing harsh with duplicate IP accounts as of now. Also, this is a message to new members who are thinking of opening more then one account on this lovely tracker - don't do it as you'll be playing with your main account too.
    You should read the news everyday...
    Go to the IRC and maybe someone will help you...

    Very simple explanation as to why your account was disabled:

    Uploaded 34.02 GB
    Downloaded 72.04 GB
    Seed Bonus 2.59 GB

    Ratio 0.472

    Rules state

    After you've downloaded 5gb, if your ratio is below 0.6 you WILL receive a warning and be given time to improve it, fail to do and you're out.
    I'm pretty sure you would have received several warnings. Private trackers are not the place for leechers.

    Read the FAQ.

    Can I invite someone I live with?


    NO! We can not stress this enough. Only one account per IP address (which each household shares between computers) is allowed on SuperTorrents. Staff makes multiple checks on this weekly and you WILL be caught. When you are, all your accounts will be disabled except for the one with the LOWEST ratio. So your better off not taking any chances.

    It actually makes more sense to share one account if you think about it. Each household has a limited download and upload speed, if your trying to maintain ratios for multiple accounts it becomes much more difficult then it would if you only had one account. So instead, combine all your downloading and uploading into one account and avoid to fuss.

    So that's why my account has gone. Fair enough, my own fault for not reading up on it

    Most people get duplicate accounts when they have low ratios. They think if their first account is going to get banned they can still use the site. So they leech on 1 account and upload on the other.

    That was never the reason why i set up another account for my flatmate. It was setup so he can download instead of me always doing it for him! Last time i do him a favour!!
