    the german tracker ts-tracker introduced a seed limit of 500% per torrent today.

    when the seed limit is exceeded, upload data is not added to the user stats anymore.

    ts-tracker is known for its ultra fast speeds, but also struggled with a overseeding problem. the implementation is the answer to a user poll done half a year ago. 70% of the members voted for a seed limit.

    Wow I would think the members would not want that because if you want to buffer your acct then you are capped, but then again it gives others a fair chance to seed too. Hmmm maybe it is a good idea

    unless it totally cuts you off from the swarm (like wait times do), then it's a useless move.

    it's not. Would you keep your line in full load when there's no benefit for your account ? Most won't

    lol, you are posting the news here faster than i realized it on the site..
    i think it is a good solution though because nobody gets penalized this way
    btw who cares about building buffers?

    People who don't watch their stuff download might not.
    Especially people with really fast connections - I'm sure they'd be to 5:1 in no time - by the time they look back at it, it could be even higher.

    But props to TS-Tracker for trying out something new - it may work out well, you never really know. Good luck to the tracker.

    if the move was to stop people from overseeding, it simply doesn't work. people are still able to overseed.

    I usually don't check my seedbox but once a day, when I wake up. I just let it run, whatever is uploaded is what's uploaded. if people can't keep a decent ratio, get a better connection.

    Thats a nice idea to prevent the overseeding problem, but you can`t forget that overseed extend the torrent live...

    I think that some torrents will die early due to this new "rule".
