    Starting today we'll test having no minimum seed time.

    Keep in mind, just because we have no mandatory seed time does not mean hit and runs are acceptable. Please use good judgment.

    I stress that this is only a trial, meaning it is not set in stone and is not permanent. There will definitely be changes, whether it be that we keep this, or we modify the old rule, or make a mixture of both.

    More details will probably pop up here, so check back for the next few days. When we've finished our experimentation, you'll get word of the new system.

    This could be a risky move by FTN..

    According to our news this may highly enhance the peers/seeder ratio or drop.

    Well, I canīt find one single reason for not seeding a torrent for at least 48 hours... I mean: I think that itīs the same thing.
    But it is a very nice way of showing confidence in us. And we must seed even more in return for that trust.

    I actually think this may be OK for FTN.

    Tight, close nit community.

    Less than 5000 members (i think).

    Closed for months

    They should have members that know what is expected of them, and know how to use this perk they have been giving, wisely.

    I do not think this will ever work on a big tracker though, that takes new members.

    But good luck, i hope it does work out, only big problem i can see, is if you ever open the doors again to new members, teaching them what is expected of them.

    It'll also vastly increase the amount of snatches hopefully, and with the competition to get ratio for seedbox users this is a good thing. It's also great for normal users, because they won't always have to seed 3 days, so there is now no reason to go to PiSexy or Revtt or _____ to download something you don't want to seed very long. I'm hoping this will work well so they can keep the rule. no ratio alone isn't that special anymore, with countless new(-ish) trackers such as iTS, PTN, Bitseek, iFi, etc adopting the idea as well

    Seems to me to be an attempt to increase snatches, which is a common thing these days.

    Best of luck with it..

    It's a trial basis for 1 week only, for the time being, and agree with Stoi, small userbase where most members know each other will look after each other over trackers that have large userbases.
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!
