invites have been cut right down on the that site, it is now only paying members who get invites.

i think you will struggle to get an invite as its been done and suggested that only people who are known and trusted in real life not cyber friends should be invited.

also any infringement of the rules is frowned upon and the person and their sponsor are both banned permanently.

@biffo1 yes it is a good site, private tracker torrent site, the admin/mods/owners got very twitchy a while back when owners of sites being hauled into court.

so you can sort of understand why they decided to go that way, but it does make it difficult to get new blood....

trackers like that can be annoying, if you download stuff that isnt popular your ratio ends up bad as it rarely gets uploaded and you get banned for 'leeching'

Work.... Where else?
I've been a member at potuk for years, never had a problem, as long as you upload the same as you download you'll never had a problem

Keeping a 1.0 ratio is a bit much IMO. Torrentleech only requires a .4 ratio to be seeded back and its probably the biggest private tracker around.

That is crazy trying to maintain a 1.0 ratio.

Problem in this country is nobody has decent upload bandwidth. You could leave your PC on 24x7 but if you upload is say 350kb then most you can upload a day is 3GB a day and that would be with 100% of upload working 100% of the time.

My ratio is 1.95 on POTuk, I've never seen it as a problem, But then I used to upload and seed requests on there.

On torrentleech my ratio is a bit less, under the 1 mark, but you struggle to seed anything back 100% due to the upload bandwidth as you said oneman

I seed all my torrents on torrentleech back to 1.5. I have uploaded 1.09tb, and downloaded 959gb, have a ratio of 1.14 something.
