Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Perhaps offering new users some sort of incentive to post in The Lounge might generate more participation... something like for every 20 posts they get 5GB upload credit or something along those lines

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

That seems a little stiff to me...I am not really for built in incentives...that just asks for people to come in a PW just to raise an otherwise crappy ratio when leaving your torrents running will do the same thing.

Besides, 20 posts isn't enough. I might say 5 gigs on 500 posts, but not 20. That way if you want to fix your ratio, you have to stick around to get to know everyone, not just come in and PW for 10 minutes and leave.

not to be an asshole,... but you've been here 5 years and don't know the site doesn't use credits and the ratios are only informational?

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

In his defense, even though a shit ratio isn't a bannable offense, people have taken a lot of shit in the lounge for not having a better than 1 to 1 ratio.

I don't condone it, and have a better than 1 to 1 at any private tracker I belong to, but let's call a spade a spade.

Wasn't it peaktime that got into the huge flame war and eventually asked to be banned over his shit ratio?




.40 forever

.30 forever, actually.


but no, no one has ever been banned for a ratio issue, nor been denied access to the tracker or had their downloads limited because of it.

if your ratio sucks, you migth catch crap for it... but it's just some guy talking shit.

People wanted ideas so i gave one, you dont like it, stiff shit.

All i'm seeing are people whinging and crying about the lounge but there are bugger all people coming up with ideas.

You also say the ratio's are informational. If that really is the case then why is a there a ratio bashing thread? http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=25339

If the ratios don't matter why have that thread at all? Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to me the purpose of that thread is to try and shame them into improving their ratios.

But isn't that exactly what would deter someone from coming back to the lounge?

Which is exactly what we're trying to improve upon with this whole thing if I'm not mistaken (although I could be...who knows anymore)

20 was just an example.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

yes, we would like to see everyone at 1:1 or better.

nothing happens if you aren't, though.


Some guy talking shit about your ratio isn't any different than some guy talking shit about your avatar or sig.

But we all know that a little ribbing about your avatar or sig comes and goes...but a shitty ratio is a long road for the casual admirer of the music that may not have much to offer yet. And god forbid they try to make a point of that...I know I am guilty of shit talking to a few people, and I know of many others that are just as guilty.

If I only came here for the music, and got bashed in the lounge the first time I stepped in there over something like my ratio, I would never come back.

But I do see your point.



So, if the ratio doesn't matter, why is there any negative argument toward credit for posting? A few gigs for a few hundred posts? Seems fair enough. For a shitty ratio, it's a way to get it better, and meet some of the old timers. Seems like a win win regardless of whether it's a bannable offense or not. Instead of just giving people shit over a shitty ratio, you can give someone shit, and then give them a way to improve it.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Paying them with ratio for posting in the Lounge?

That's not the type of whoring we're looking for.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Is double posting the type you're looking for?

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Reggie must be on a slow connection. Or he's installed some code to double-post to improve his post count.
