Trying to give someone a 'credit' in their ratio everytime they post a Vine or give a B&P would be a nightmare for Staff. It's much easier for us to list those items on their profile page. And, if we did decide to credit their ratio, trying to decide how much to credit them for each Vine/B&P would also be difficult to decide. The torrent ratio should show what they do on torrents. The Vines and B&Ps list shows how many shows they have offered in those ways. Maybe if I have a bit of time, I can add a link under their ratio that shows if they are a Viner or B&Per. Perhaps that would help to 'instantly' see what this person is contributing here.

I just think that most folks who are very active in the vines and bnps are getting shortchanged when people see a lousy ratio and think they don't contribute...why not credit them so they are recognized and appreciated for the effort...that's why we post ratios here, is for the recognition of your effort (or lack thereof) so why not apply the credit properly...if this is not JUST a torrent site, then why are the ratios specific to the torrents, and not the whole site...would anyone opine on whether this idea sounds good (or even makes sense to anyone but me)...PLEASE!!! it sounds like the answer to a lot of these problems, and no one said a word about it...don't you viners and bnpers want to get credit for your efforts???
If ratios mean nothing - which has been stated time and time again on this site - they should just be removed from clear public view.

As for giving "credits" to people who do B&P or vines, who the fuck is going to go through all of THAT effort?? The staff here are not paid (although I do think that the Cover Art Mod should get some sort of reward, for his job is a tough one) and to expect them to wade through 20 miles of bullshit in order to give Skippy-La-HaHa his credit due for doing a B&P on a Weezer show taped on a radio shack handheld is just fucking idiotic.

Ratios are only good for one thing - making fun of cocksuckers who have low ones.

End of story.

Don't be an idiot.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

points well taken regarding credits to the ratio...a good idea, but virtually impossible to actually accomplish...though a link to their other contributions would be a good idea so folks have "instant" access to the rest of the story before we flame people...it's a more reasonable solution to the problem...probably won't fix anything, but it's a step in the right direction...thanx for all the input on the subject, I've really given a lot of thought to the more legitimate points made here, and I appreciate the flow of "decent" ideas

You're kidding about major sites, right?
I went to Lossless Legs one time and it looked like a dead head fan site.
Anyway, THE REALLY BIG SITES like pirate bay, mininova, and the other BIG torrent sites don't use share ratios. It's the small sites like Lossless Legs and tapecity that do.

C'mon, P.... you know there's "members" at TTD that live to take on freezer.

I could say it's a nice day and some busy body would HAVE to argue about it.



No, let's discuss MY explicit ratio.........since it was already discussed on page one in this thread.....and subsequently referenced in further discussion.


Remember the original "Where do New Sources of old zeppelin shows come from" thread and how somebody just had to make a nasty comment in the first few posts?

WELL...using that thread's beginning ONLY as an example -- my point is:
"Would doing something to my ratio help remedy in keeping something like that from happening again?"

No -- ratio wouldn't have mattered.....That was purely a personal attack.




We're still discussing explicit ratio here.......MY explicit ratio.......OK......and using my unique situation as the case in point --- in almost every case where someone's complained about MY ratio or what I've shared or didn't share ...in almost every case....its been personal.

Ratios wouldn't have mattered.

Look at the original "new sources" thread. Remember mort? remember the looneybird SPECIFICALLY complaining about MY explicit ratio? All personal attacks.

Would it make any difference if I had a ratio at all?

Ratios wouldn't matter because the 'members' that wanted to take on freezer couldn't care about explicit ratios .... they had axes to grind.




So, still discussing ratios.....my ratio as an example.......

Do I need a ratio?

The site owner pretty much said no.

I never thought I ever NEEDED a ratio because I don't take anything back......nobody will share what I want....(Doors 12/12/70 soundboard)

And a ratio won't stop any attacks, any arguements or any resentments.



Dudogger doesn't need a ratio. If he posts frequently in the Lounge, he'll fit right in all over TTD.......hell, who knows, maybe he'll fit in so well, he'll be asked to be the "assistant cover mod".




SO..........Does anyone else need an explicit ratio?

Ask the site owner for one simple and final answer and use that quote as a signature. That ought to shut up anything but a personal attack.




Case closed............now what about them awful 'spider-bots' .....

That's kind of misleading. Many times I have the red firewalled message when I'm
connected, even though my ports are properly forwarded.

All you've done in this thread is troll.
