    This question i put to all and any FST members,

    What do YOU do as the bare minimum to keep your account alive if your not currently using that tracker.

    Now i always thought logging in and browsing site was enough but i was just reading bitme rules and they state the following

    Accounts inactive for more than 42 days are automatically disabled. Simply logging in to the website is not considered activity. To avoid being disabled, the account needs to be used for upload/download; otherwise it is inactive, even if it is parked.
    but im sure i read on another trackers rules seeding alone is not enough.

    Im just curious to what others do.

    P.S. Please dont state obvious and say i use all my accounts fully all the time

    I do have some trackers and I keep a textfile when I last downloaded a file which I look at.
    But also keep seeding 3 or more torrents from that site all the time.

    But to keep doublestandard (seeing I have that file): If it's disabled then I don't need it really.

    well its easy for me i allways use different tracker for different things..also its not to hard to download few MB every week from few acc and seed it..also not every tracker have that rule that u have quoted.

    also 42 or more days is pretty enough for u to download something..

    SCC have this rule, if u dont log in every week your acc is disabled(User class), unless u are scene power or above than your acc is safe for 42 days

    SCC is too high-maintenance for me.

    I believe HDBits and RevTT have similar rules.

    if im not gonna use the tracker anytime soon i'll download the smallest file available and seed that on 'low' in utorrent. i assumed everyone did this.. i dont trust just logging in, and this way i don't even have to log in

    From what I can tell, just logging in is enuff for some sites yet some require actual tracker activity. When in doubt at very least I'll start a d/l, wait about 2 mins, then tell my client to update the tracker then kill the d/l (after 1:1 of course).

    Please do not PM me for invites. Thx.

    I don't have that many tackers to worry about; I use all the 15 trackers. The only reason why I am not downloading something is because I am seeding to get enough buffer for the next download. And if seeding for a week or so is considered as being inactive then I may be kicked out from some trackers soon.
    Hopefully not.

    Does that mean donwload/upload or just browsing every other week?

    kadake, there are some trackers, that i know of, that do require download/upload like HDBits (1 GB donwload/month min).
    I heard something about TL, that it would require activity, like down/up, but i'm not sure...

    If I don't use it then I don't usually bother with it.
