    one thing is very confusing about ScT....file sharing is meant to be free and especially tracker invites...but still ScT itself sells invites...when we see a person selling invites somewhere,we say what a loser and we curse him with everything we could but ScT is really doing it publicly...why...doesn't that feel pathetic?
    ScT is no doubt a good site but thats not the way a good site acts.
    Give More...Take Less...Live Simple

    Or they might have just to pay servers, lawyers and all the things that comes with a torrent tracker...

    btw... not everybody have the balls to run such a site... On which site are you a sysop?

    That's sad to hear, so do you know how much do they sell each invite?

    Kinda defeats the purpous of bt though really, if your going to start charging ppl for it then your nothing more than a buiseness, no different from the copyright holders who's content your selling.

    And it probably is at a profit, too.

    First of all they run the tracker, so they decide what they want to do with the invites, if they want to give away invites, to close the invites, to sell them on ebay or whatever they want.They can do so because invites belong to them. And yes, of course it's different when we criticize a guy who is selling an invite, because he's doing it without the consent of the tracker (the tracker doesn't want HIM to sell it)

    And secondly, they're not selling them. If you donate an amount they think it's considerable, they'd like to show you their gratefulness by giving you an invite. But remember, they're not selling them; you are in /DONATE.PHP and Donate means : "to present a gift" and a gift is "something given voluntarily without expecting any payment in return"

    So if you're spending the 20euros JUST BECAUSE OF the invite, you're actually not donating, you're buying (just by the simple fact you are expecting something in return)

    So tattoo this on your mind ScT doesn't sell invites, PEOPLE BUY ScT invites. It's hard to imagine that there's a buyer but not a seller but by definition ScT is not a seller.

    And two things more to add to ScT. First of all, they gave out invites for free for PU+ on Jan 1st, and also they opened up their userbase up to 20,000 (That was approx. 20% increase on their userbase). Secondly, when people talk about file sharing and how free it should be... please learn the world doesn't work like that. There wouldn't be any PRIVATE trackers, invitations, a BitTorrent Invite section or whatsoever.

    My $.02

    Thanks you for that wonderful explanation cocalait. Now no one will ever have to ask/say the same dumb thing ever again.

    Heck, if ScT sells them then everybody gets a win.

    Strange logic.
