    alot of people say content and speeds are important....even pretimes. but how important is retention. some trackers get rid of torrents very quickly some will keep them for a good amount of time as long as somebody is seeding it. this is one of the key factors for me when deciding how i really feel about a tracker

    Retention is pretty important as well. I think content with healthy amounts of seeders takes the cake for me though.

    Excuse Me?
    Didn't Think So!

    Retention means nothing to me. I don't grab anything that isn't fresh and I don't really think it is that cool to have X number of torrents with almost no action.

    there are alot of games i decide i want to try long after they are released. finding a site that has them at a decent speed is a godsend...otherwise i have to rapidshare them

    on everything but 0day sites I'd say retention is very important, unless the request system/community is good. then it doesn't really matter...

    Yep, retention is a huge thing for me. I usually grab more older shit than new. Pretimes and speed is also very important, but that's all a lot of sites care about.

    and i meant community as in people going out of their way to upload something for you, not as in an 'elite members' tracker, ie those 2 newish level 5's

    I think it depends on the type of the content

    for movie it's important but for softwares it's not
