    I was just browsing the site and I see over 5000 torrents but no leechers and barely some seeders.

    The most seeded torrent has 73 seeders and it's free leech and has 4 leechers. A lot of torrents have 1-2 seeders.

    The torrent with the most leechers has 9 leechers and 1 seeder. Does this tracker especialize on anything especial or is it just another general tracker that really needs more active users?

    I mean I don't even use the tracker cause what speeds can I really get from 1-2 seeders at this tracker?

    you can get FULL SPEED there even with just 1 seeder

    they "specialize" in screeners...

    screeners = FAIL
    screeners + low amount of peers = EPIC FAIL

    I just browsed the site they have quite a few releases with over 250 snatches...

    Comparing to a site like SCT...
    I just checked a release they have 408 snatches on.
    I checked the same exact release on THS..
    They have 157 snatches.
    (THS acctually had this release sooner after pre than SCT did as well.)
    Compare the fact that SCT userbase is a little over 5 times the size of the THS userbase...
    If they were the same size based on estimations from both snatch totals there would be approx: 785 snatches on the same file on THS if their userbase was the same size as SCT.

    Again comparing to SCT....Checking the current users online panel.
    Users Online 263 = SCT
    Users Online 63 = THS
    Given these totals....
    Multiply the 63 *5(size difference between the sites...)
    THS would then have an average of 315 users online browsing in the last 15 minutes if it were the same size userbase as SCT.</p>
    Comparing speeds:I randomly selected 30 torrents that were over 10 weeks old on the 3 following sites....
    THS, T-D, and SCT.
    These files had 1 - 10 seeders.
    THS file speeds were between 250 - 547k (Overall Averaging 341K. Most had 1 seeder.)
    T-D speeds were between 0.06k - 431k (Overall averaging 63.9k. Most had 4 seeders.)
    SCT speeds were between 9.6K - 143.9k (Overall averaging 41.6k. Most had 10-11 seeders.)
    (again... speeds based on the fact the files are over 10 weeks old on the site.)

    Lastly comparing the snatches with the seeders and leechers vs SCT.
    For the torrents I randomly selected which were on both sites.
    THS continued to have more seeders on the files per completed snatch than SCT did on the same files per amount completed.
    (Sums up... more people on THS like to seed the files.)
    THSSeeders 8,992
    Leechers = 112
    80 seeders for every 1 leech.

    SCTSeeders 148,262
    Leechers 7,881
    18 Seeders for every 1 leech.

    P.S. Take into account with the THS seedbonus. You technically shouldnt even have to seed files for more then 40 hrs to get them completely ratio free.
    If your using seedbonus with irc idle bonus you shouldnt have to seed them for more than 20 hrs to get the same files ratio free.

    (Based on 700MB file size avg.)

    Compare that with SCT and FTN and similair sites. If you want to see the differances
    Very informative, well thought out and extremely well put, BUT this is all irrelevant because this is all based on "if they were the same size" and "if TH had this" the fact is they are not. It's like saying a 6 year old could beat up an 18 year if the 6 year old was 25.

    Yikes still only 4 leechers for the torrent with the most leechers and now 54 seeders for the most seeded torrent.

    Pretty weak. I'm afraid to try to grab anything cause it might just take hours to download.

    45 users online right now.
