    posted on 12/19/07 12:44PM by **** We had a bit of an issue with the invite granting system (it handed out dozens of invites, seemingly arbitrarily, to anyone - including ordinary users, peons, and people who have had their invites disabled). Since the default invite giving system was a complete mess, it was basically impossible to pinpoint where the problem lay - there were far too many stupid sections of code that made little to no sense whatsoever. As a result, we decided to do the following:

    1. Reset the number of invites for users, peons, and people who have had their invites disabled to 0.
    2. Reset the number of invites for power users with more than 2 invites to 2.
    3. Backport the planned invite system for gazelle over to the current site.

    I did all 3 of them in a couple hours. This is how the new invite system works:

    Power users (and above) get invites twice per month based off how much they uploaded and downloaded during the two weeks.

    1 invites is given for 5 gigs uploaded and 5 gigs downloaded.
    2 invites are given for 10 gigs uploaded and 10 gigs downloaded.
    3 invites are given for 20 gigs uploaded and 20 gigs downloaded.

    No more than 3 invites are given out per user per invite round, so uploading/downloading 50 gigs does not give you 8 invites. Invites will be given out on the 8th and the 22nd of every month.

    Also, in case some people haven't noticed, donors now get access to the top 10. So if you don't think you have the bandwidth to become a power user, you may access the top 10 by donating.



    that also mean no more unlimited invites for some users that said they have

    I think it's a great idea if they want to choke the site's growth.

    If that's not what they're aiming for, I think it's terrible. But I dislike most of the decisions they seem to be making these days.

    That's true. But it was plain and simple. PU+ = invites.

    Now at What, it's you have to d/l and u/l atleast 5 gigs to get invites.

    Not exactly the same...
