1. Downloading Rules:
Downloading is conditional of your site statistics, this is not a dump site where you can just take without sharing, our rules are as follows:
We expect from every user to help newly added torrents reach a good seeding/leeching ratio quickly in order to help the torrent during the first hours of its “life” on the site.
All torrents must be seeded to a minimum of 0.5 ratio, we previously had this as 1-1 but felt some were finding it too hard to achieve so we have reduced it to 0.5.
If you cant reach 0.5 on the torrent ratio then the torrent must be left open seeding for minimum of 48 hours.
If its a popular torrent with plenty of leechers then there is no reason why it cant be fully seeded to a 1.1 ratio.
You must keep you overall ratio above 1.00 at all times, anyone not doing so will run the risk of being banned from site.
New Leeching & ratio rules.
All members must keep a ratio of above 1.00 at all times, there are no exceptions to this rule and never has been, even staff must stick by it.
You must have a ratio above 1.00 to download, if you don't the option to leech will not be available to you due to the ratio checker system now in place.
If you find yourself on a level 1 warning, this means you have 7 days to improve your ratio or you will be banned, you have the following options:
1, Trade in any bonus points you may have to increase your ratio, you can do this by selecting BON at the top of the page in the userbar, depending on what theme you are using, if this is not visible look for a small plus (+) symbol to the left, this will unhide it, or you can use the following link.
2, Donate and select upload credit, you must make sure that what you donate will send your ratio back to 1.00, as you will still be banned even if you donate and your ratio is below 1.00
3, Donate and select VIP status, this option freezes the warning process and also bypasses the download check script, so you will still be able to download. While you are a VIP your downloaded amount will not increase, only what you upload back to the site will be added, so this is a very good way to improve your ratio.
4, sit it out and hope you make a ratio of 1.00 in time.
If your ratio is really bad, I do not recommend the last option.
2. General Rules:
*Do not defy the staffs expressed wishes!
*Flaming releases or members in torrent comments or in forums will see you having those privileges removed and a warning issued.
*If a member of staff edits your post or torrent comment under no circumstances should it be deleted, anyone doing so will get a mandatory 1 week warning.
*Do not send or request invites to other sites using our pm system, forums or IRC. We have a script that picks up keywords and flags your post, your account will be instantly banned no questions asked.
*Disruptive behavior in the forums will result in a warning.
You will only get one warning! After that it's bye bye Kansas!
*If your account is unused for 6 weeks you will be sent an email at the address you have provided, then if you do not login to the site within the next 3 days your account will be deleted, we have a lot of active users on site and membership is limited. So those that don't use their accounts will be removed to make space for members who want to sign up and use the site.
*Any new account with a zero download after 14 days will be pruned from the server, this is a download site not somewhere to lurk. You are just taking up spaces that other people could benefit from.
*Do NOT PM The Owner, Admin or Moderators with questions, they are very busy people and do not have time to answer members questions as well. Use the helpdesk instead, where you will receive 1-1 assistance.
*Going over a member of staff's head about warnings, low ratio's or any other matter will only end up with you being banned. We have a rank system use it. Blackcat will back a member of staff's decision 100%, so it's a waste of time sending him PM's whining.
*We are a private tracker and want to remain that way, under no circumstances should our name or details be posted around the internet. This also includes pm's and emails sent to members, any member caught doing so will have their accounts disabled without any prior warning...
