I noticed that my ratio has been fluctuating up and down (and up and down again) at Dime a bit today - despite that I'm only uploading one show at the moment. Ya all might want to keep track of that.

A little harsh. With around 100,000 users they've obviously brought a lot of pleasure to a lot of people. Like so many others I got a truckload of great music off there that I'd never have otherwise had a chance of even hearing. I would hope that most people are into the music itself rather than the more arcane aspects of clandestine recording and tape trading.

Keeping the best possible quality is a laudable aim, but am I too cynical for thinking a large part of this hostility comes from your namesake on Easytree being shitcanned after getting abusive towards other users?

Why am I not surprised? A first post that bumps an old thread!? It can't be!

Dime is the best site for live music. It doesn't take me long to find something I want from there.

The absence of a few really major bands, all of which I like, is disappointing, but I agree, there is lots of great stuff there.

Personally, the # of people who download one of my uploads tells me far more about whether or not I did good than any number of 'Thank You!s' ever will.

And for some artists it's difficult to categorize them. I've seen 3 or 4 different categories for Bob Dylan. And I've found the search works best if I use " " around what I'm looking for. That said, it's still kind of a crap shoot. I seem to remember that the search function at STG was basically a randomizer, so at least it's an improvement over that.

BTW, I love Dime.

Re: Dimeadozen Offline...

heh, that's almost the exact opposite of my ratio... when i first started i was about to go on a trip so i was just grabbing stuff, and then i had a shitty upload cap, and now when i try to work on it i can't because everyone has 3.6 or whatever ratios on the torrent already :-P

I did a little cosmetic work on my ratio... still not good, but I did upload over 600% on a Sex Pistols show recently...
