Now this system was removed, but we are discussing how to include that in new rating system. Hopefully that will make life a bit easier.

Metal - is not extremely popular music, so if we just switch to freeleech mode most of released becomes dead. We are trying to force users to seed as much as possible for our all benefits.

My experience with freeleech and getting bonus points for seeding even if nobody is downloading will give a lot of torrents that aren't dead and the freeleech will give users the opportunity to grab "oldies and goodies"

Myself often scan the torrents now and then and not on a daily basis, then I usually find good torrents with seeders but no leechers other than me, So gaining the ratio is difficult then but once I downloaded them I leave them up for many months or even longer, always re-seeding on request. The new system will not benefit me.

There should be some bonus for being the last seeder that keeps the torrents alive!

I'm Swedish myself so I have to use google to translate the Russian parts.

Nevertheless, Thanks for a good site :-)

I think a good compromise is to allow seeding to only get you so far. I.e. you can't pass a 2:1 ratio solely on seed time.

To try to explain it fully, let me put together an example.

Scenario one:

Sam has downloaded 1 torrent. He just finished it, and it was 10GB.

After 14 days of seeding it, he still has 0KB upload - no one else seems to want to download.

At 14 days, the tracker grants him a 10GB credit, bringing his ratio to 1:1 (upload : download).

The next day, someone downloads it, and he is the sole seed, so his ratio becomes 2:1. Henceforth, he cannot get any further credit from the tracker for seeding, but the MB/GB upload still count towards his ratio.

Scenario two:

Same had downloaded 1 torrent. He just finished it, and it was 10GB.

After 14 days, he has uploaded 1GB of it. He's not the only seed, so the person only got 1GB from Sam. His ratio is 1:10 (upload : download).

At 14 days, the tracker grants him 9GB upload credit, bringing his ratio to 1:1. etc.

Now, you could expand on this... forcing seed time based on size. I.e.

For 100MB, you have to seed for 24 hours before the tracker gets you to 1:1, if you haven't already via other downloaders.

For 250MB, you have to see for 7 days.

For 500MB, you have to see for 14 days.

For 750, 21 days.

In addition, for every X days you seed beyond the require time, you get Y points.

If I downloaded 100MB, and I seed for 24 hours, I get 0 points. But if I seed for another 30 days, I get 5 points. And 5 points for every 30 days beyond that.

And so on, and so on.

Then, you change the rank & delay system to not only be "points" based, but also "ratio".

Visitor would be <1000 points or <1.5:1 ratio.

Newbie would be 1000 points or 1.5:1 ratio.

User would be 2001 points or 2:1 ratio.

And so on. Basically, you have to seed still for X time to get to 1:1 (which the tracker will do for you). If you seed even more, you get points, helping you rank up.

I put some thought into this, but not much... but this seems like a fair system to me. It doesn't force the community aspect, but still encourages it. It does force seeding, and encourages longer seeding as well.

Edit: "points" = reputation score, just FYI.
