A question about 'snatches'



Okay...seriously. I think that this is an awesome feature but I was wondering:

1) What makes someone a snatcher? Is it the length of time you leave your window open after a download or your dl/ul ratio on the torrent?

2) I have a laptop which I use between home and work. If I disconnet at the end of the day will I be listed as a 'snatcher' and if so, will that go away when I re-open my window and resume seeding?

Just sort of curious. Thanks.

I think it's just the last people to complete. So when you finish you become a snatcher. After there are ten more completes you won't be in the list anymore. This would allow people to see the last ten people to complete to see if they're still seeding.... or if they bailed.

and if you don't know by now about snatches....... just had to do it.

Re: A question about 'snatches'

Well then the feature isn't as cool as I thought. I thought that it listed all the people that hopped off without letting their ratio get to 1:1 or only left their window open for a short time after finishing the download. Sort of a way to call out leechers. So now even if I leave my window open forever and have a 10:1 ratio....I'll be listed as a snatcher the moment I close my window?

Not that I'm all that concerned about it. I just mainly wanted to start a thread about snatches.....hee hee.

I still don't understand how that is supposed to keep ppl from not closing their window. It sounds to me like it is only going to keep the ppl who interact on the site ( I thought the share ratio already took care of that) from doing it. Wouldn't it be better if you take ppl's downloading privileges away for a couple days if their share ratio falls? To be honest.. i care more about my share ratio than if my name is on that list. Sometimes I hit and run and then make up for it when i can.

There's already plenty "heather clean out your box" threads.

You guys have way too many yes-men around here if you think this will work.

Re: A question about 'snatches'

this was something requested by some users who have seeded new dvds and had the first 5 ppl jump off right away, leaving the original seeder as the only seeder after expecting a little help.

if you want to jump off and come back to help later, this is to be expected because we all do that sometimes. but when the original seeder is working to get the first few ppl up to 100% and they bail right away that's a little different.
