    PtN

    New tracker created for friends by friends, which is the only reason it is so secretive. We dont expect to be '1337' just a nice friendly community where people dont have to worry about scene releases etc.
    We deal in purely xvid content and the more unique the xvid the better.
    The only reason this review is being made is cause we have been exposed, so we might aswell make it a decent review instead of the one posted before.

    Total Traffic System:

    We don't have any kind of ratio system. We have total traffic system which means your upload and download amounts are counted as one. This definitely means the more you leech , seed and upload the more your position get better and higher.


    Gold System:


    - For each torrents, its earnings is calculated as:
    0.25 * ((Torrent Size / 2GB) + 1) * (Seed time in weeks +1) = Base gold per hour per torrent
    The seed time in weeks is + 1 which means that the first week=1, second week=2, etc...
    Same for the torrent size: 1GB = 1, 2GB =2, 4GB=3, etc...
    Then two extra bonuses are added per torrent:
    First Bonus - 0.1 * (Upspeed / 10k/s)
    Second Bonus - 0.5 * Seeders:Leechers ratio- As mentioned above, the Top 10 torrents are then summed up to determine the amount per hour.
    In addition, you can see in your profile how much does each torrent is earning at the moment and what is your current total.
    In order to view these details, you need to open your snatched torrents list.- Here are a few examples:
    300MB torrent which is seeded for over 4 weeks and doesn't have any peers:
    Base: 0.25*1*5 = 1.25
    First Bonus: 0.1 * 0
    Second Bonus = 0.5 * 0 (No leechers atm)
    Total: 1.25 g/h

    300MB torrent which is seeded for over 4 weeks with 1 peer and 20 seeders. The user is seeding at 50k/s:
    Base: 0.25*1*5 = 1.25
    First Bonus: 0.1 * 5 = 0.5
    Second Bonus = 0.5 * 20 = 10
    Total: 11.75 g/h

    20GB pack which is seeded for over 1 weeks with 1 peer and 5 seeders. The user is seeding at 200k/s:
    Base: 0.25*2*11 = 5.5
    First Bonus: 0.1 * 20 = 2
    Second Bonus = 0.5 *5 = 2.5
    Total: 10 g/h- Gaining Gold for other activity:
    Uploading a torrent - 15 Gold
    Posting a torrent comment - 3 Gold
    Creating a new Forum topic - 2 Gold
    Creating a new Forum post - 1 Gold
    Shoutbox activity - 20 Shouts = 1 Gold



    Torrents:

    - Downloading -

    Make your best effort to leave positive and constructive comments of thanks and input for torrents.
    Seed back what you download to at least a 1:1 ratio or at least try to. if it's impossible for you to seed to 1:1 then you must seed for at least 3 Days within 7 days of completing the torrent.
    The main rule is, do not Hit and Run after you completed the downloaded torrent file.
    Hit and Run is not allowed, users doing that on our torrents will be banned.
    All torrents in the snatched stuff marked with red background are considered as hit and run torrents and you will be warned if you did not seed it back , remember it's only 2 warnings after that say bye bye to your account.


    - Uploading -

    All uploads must include a proper NFO.
    Both scene releases and non scene releases are accepted here. However, we are a Movies/TV Shows tracker. Also, if it is non-scene the proper naming format is (TorrentName.Type.Year-PtN).
    Please make sure you add screens to your non-scene uploaded torrent describing it .
    Shitty formats are not allowed here , we allow : xvid , dvdr , x264 , hdtv etc... use your mind any torrent with bad quality will be removed.
    All files can be rared or unrared we are not very strict about that rule , it's up to the uploader.
    Don't upload if your upload speed is not good , people wont like getting files with 10 KB/sec , breaking this rule will risk your upload privilege.
    Make sure your torrents are well-seeded for at least 3 days.
    Stay active! Active uploaders will be promoted to gunners which is a special class with special privileges ( forum access and requesting invites ).
    No uploading of old tv episodes. Only the newest episodes allowed. Old episodes can only be included in Packs. First offense torrent will be deleted, second offense will get a warning.




    We also have an Arcade, Casino, Auctions, loads of competitions and prizes.

    IRC is pretty active, and the forums are frequently posted in.



    We are also very proud of our stylesheets (Blue and Red shown above). there are more, and many more will come in the future.

    Looks like a fantastic tracker for movies, thanks for the review!
    It's best to help your friends and be honest instead of burning bridges. There's alot more to life than being a member of the best private tracker. I'm proud to be part of the best community there has ever been.

    It's a nice tracker indeed!
    Too often, we loose sight of life's simple pleasures.Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch-slap that mother!%$@%# upside the head!

    TBH I preferred the simple original layout before they started modifying and changing everything (and adding a hundred random 'features').

    Total Traffic was quite experimental, you might or might not say progressive, but I have my doubts on its effectiveness as a economic system. Whatever sense measuring traffic had became lost with the addition of gold points and buying upload.

    Most of the features we added over the last year or so have been refined to work seamlessly with the second version of the site, which is still under dev for the time being. The layout has been reworked to retain its former simplicity and functionality as well.
    And, exchanging Gold Points for Upload Amount has long been disabled.

    And yet the ranks have not been changed to reflect that, so that doesn't 'fix' the problem. The burden was just shifted onto new members from after that rule change, because you still see people with terabytes of upload and a high rank who have their upload speed capped at 1kbps, obviously contributing nothing to the site.

    I guess you're only the fool if you actually give a shit about your traffic or your rank, so I shouldn't be complaining.

    As I already said, V2 isn't up yet.
    More parameters are being taken into consideration for making the new class system fair for the new as well as the old members.

    Why don't you add a pirate ship parameter to the diamonds, gold and total traffic parameters. That might balance everything out Or maybe some sort of treasure hunt parameter, which will have absolutely no relevance to torrenting, but will somehow get all your users to buy and horde something else in exchange for precious 'seedtime'.

    Jokes aside, considering the past improvements I am quite curious as to what Sarge and co are gonna churn out this time. Is V2 coming out this summer?
