    ^ title. what do you care about more, the content of a tracker or the pre?

    let's say tracker #1 had 5k torrents. but the pre-times were around 30 mins later than tracker #2.

    and tracker #2 has only 2k torrents, but the pre-times are usually < 1min.

    which would you choose?

    i would choose pretime, cause some shows aka Californication i want to dl right away. 5k torrents is nothing, and the tracker would be pretty worthless to me if the pre's sucked as well. I don't see why you can't have both though.. If a tracker has great pre's eventually people will find out and start using it rather than their slower sites, and then the retention will become better on the faster site. I can't see a situation where you would have to pick one or the other, unless one of the trackers isnt a 0day site

    Generally speaking I download '0day' releases the most, rather than older stuff, so just because of that I'd value pre more.

    they didn't built Rome in one day

    third factor, which is actually also important - the speed, is missing. anyway, i would choose content

    For me, the content and ajsl is right. The speed is the most important thing to me. I don't really care about the pre time. I can have a file late by a day or so.
    It's fine

    content and speeds (up at least 4mbit's ~ 480kb/s) the most important 2 things for me, pre can be even 1h

    if i were to choose from what you gave it would be #1. Would be weired/lame/mental//crazy/insane to pick #2 just coz they pre 30 mins before the first one.

    P.S. 5k torrents isn't much btw, especially if it is bunch of MP3s.

    I have never watched a movie, TV episode or whatever the same day I downloaded it, so for me pre-time is the less irrelevant thing to take in consideration.
