    The title say's it all really.

    What I'm saying is ok there is giveaway's in the invite section every day and some guy's want different types of proof ect.. as in ratio screens and profile links ect... but as soon as Demonoid opened it's doors for business everywhere on the net codes are being advertised.

    Prob the reason I wrote this thread was that I saw in the invite section a thread something like "Giveaway", and in the thread was an actual Demonoid code just copy/pasted. So I take it, it was a first come first served.

    I know Demonoid is a semi-private tracker, but you have to admit that you find some stuff on there that you just don't get on private trackers, especially appz and some older stuff.

    Private trackers are a combination of community, privacy and in some cases content.... but it looks as the privacy has just about gone from Demonoid.

    I'm glad Demonoid is back, it's just unbelieveable to see how their invites are being throwin about.

    first, demonoid has freaking huge database of users and it's almost impossible for them to keep an eye on each demon user

    second, it's the rule m8, they don't care if invite codes are pasted on public.

    I understand the huge data base and the hassle involved in pursuing bad users ect... And I also know it wouldn't matter how bad your ratio is that you wouldn't get banned, and that came from the staff. But it still is a semi-private tracker and if they are gonna be happy with members just posting codes in public, shur they might as well just become public, though I know that would be strenuous on their server.

    I just think it's disrespectful to just post codes in public to any private or semi-private tracker.

    Since there isn't any rule stating whether it's allowed or disallowed, i guess it comes down to individuals' perspective.

    What exactly is the negative effect of doing this?

    Privacy? That's just silly. If Demonoid wanted privacy, I think they'd be doing things a bit differently.

    Believe it or not, not every tracker wants to be a big secret or keep most of the BT population out of it. If the staff there really were worried about publicity, I think they could've just stayed closed. If they didn't want their invites going out, they wouldn't give them to everyone in the tracker. They obviously have different values about how to run a tracker and what's important.

    And as far back as I know, since Demonoid has had invite codes, they have been posted in public, and it has helped a lot of people. Why change anything? It has made Demonoid what it is...

    Besides, more often than not, I'd guess the people getting the codes are people who are trying to download a torrent they found on a public tracker that is from Demonoid but they're not a member. It's not like if FTN invites were given that way and people would be making dupe accounts for buffering and trading, etc.
