Thread: yet another new tracker, sort of

  1. #1
    hi guys

    I'm looking for some beta testers for my new tracker-ish site. Anyone interested? here's the link: www.flashseed.com

    it's a bit different from your usual tracker:
    - it's a public tracker (anyone can sign up)
    - uploads are stored on our servers and web-seeded
    - only upload counts toward your ratio
    - seeding gets you points, which you can "spend" on direct downloads (carrot instead of stick)

    what do you guys think, is it a good idea? :]

    anyways, the servers are wide open since there are no users. You can probably max out your pipes both ways if you upload something. Let me know if you find any bugs

    I think that if you're storing each upload on your server:
    A) It's gonna run out of space if the site gets popular.
    B) You leave the legal gray area from within which a tracker operates. Now you're knowingly hosting the actual copyrighted content and could get in serious trouble.

    Your site shows that files are gonna be hosted on your server. Like what he mentioned above^.

    1. Problems
    2. We're doing torrents here, peer-peer
    3. Wish you best of luck mate

    there's a time limit for each seed, so once they're done it gets booted off the server.

    the site will be legal (no illegal files!). I will be using the same filtering techniques as rapidshare et al.

    it is a torrent site, but better!

    also, from my logs some people seem to be confused. You upload CONTENT files, not .torrent files!

    Probably this services would get more users if you host the files in offshore servers

    So a user uploads something legal, you make a torrent and put it on your "tracker" where you seed it to whoever wants it (from your servers), if a user seeds for long enough something they have downloaded, they get bonus points, to get a direct download, off the same servers that are hosting the content in the first place, so will get fast speed either way? so whats the point of seeding.

    or is it

    user uploads something legal to your server, you make a torrent, the user gets credit for uploading the content, the torrents are on a 10meg server, but what he is getting bonus points for is stuff on a gbit server, which is different content albeit still legal.

    Personally i cant see either working. 99% of people just want stuff, they cant be arsed to give back anything (and most of those not even bandwidth never mind new content)

    and a perfect example of what a "legal" site looks like

    http://www.mininova.org/

    it just doesnt really work, unless you have made a program (linux is a good example) and want to get it out to the masses with very little bw usage (and it already has a huge following), but if its just a tracker with nothing to give other than what other people legaly give you, its just doomed to failiure if you ask me.

    Good luck anyway , I hope you prove me wrong.

    I love how people comment saying "use offshore servers", obviously being clueless as to how poor a network all offshore/tax free jurisdictions (usually one and the same) have, and in turn the high cost of bandwidth and very sh*t peering.

    Trust me, if hosting companies, like LeaseWeb (NL), in Europe can't even provide decent speeds to the US, then what chance does the Cayman Islands have?
