4. Client Rules:
Client rules are how we maintain the integrity of our swarms. This allows us to filter out disruptive and dishonest clients that may hurt the performance of either the tracker or individual peers.
The modification of clients to bypass our client requirements (spoofing) is explicitly forbidden. People caught doing this will be instantly and permanently banned. This is your only warning.
The use of clients or proxies which have been modified to report incorrect stats to the tracker (cheating) is not allowed, and will result in a permanent ban.
Banned clients highlighted in the downloading rules are not allowed. Additionally, the testing of unstable clients by developers is not allowed unless approved by a staff member.
5. Ratio System Overview
- Your ratio is calculated by dividing the amount of data you've uploaded by the amount of data you've downloaded. You can view your ratio in the site header or in the "stats" section of your user profile.
- To maintain leeching privileges, your ratio must remain above a minimum value. This minimum value is your required ratio.
- If your ratio falls below your required ratio, you will be given two weeks to raise your ratio back above your required ratio. During this period, you are on ratio watch.
- If you fail to raise your ratio above your required ratio in the allotted time, your leeching privileges will be revoked. You will be unable to download more data. Your account will remain enabled.
6. Rules for Request:
- Do not make requests for torrents that break the rules. It is your responsibility that the request follows the rules. Your request will be deleted. Requests cannot be more specific than the upload (and trumping) rules. For example, requesting an MP3 torrent with a log when the rules prohibit replacing an MP3 torrent without a log. Such a request asks for a duplicate to be uploaded.
- Only one title (application, album, etc.) per request. No requests for multiple albums (e.g. OST) or *censored*ue requirements. You may ask for multiple formats, but you cannot specify all of them. For example, you may ask for either a FLAC or VBR but not both formats. You may also make a list of albums by one artist that satisfies your request, but the request can be filled with only one album. Application requests can consist of only one application, but may span a range of different versions. However, such requests can be filled with only one version of that title.
- All users must have an equal chance to fill a request. Abusing the request system to exchange favors for other users is not tolerated. That includes making specific requests for certain users (whether explicitly named or not). Making requests for releases, and then un-filling so that one particular user can fill the request is not allowed. If reported, both the requester and user filling the request will receive a warning.
8. Complaint Rules
- Searching for the problems which already have solutions before asking new questions.
- Title of a topic must be short and clear.
- In case your problem is not in our rules, we will decide how to solve them.
- Staff decisions are final.
- Do NOT continue to create more articles with the same content during waiting solution.
- If you have any ideas to make our tracker better, we always welcome. Use site suggestions in the forums for your contributions.
- Contact us at: Staff
7. Chat Rules:
- Many forums (Tutorials, The Library, etc.) have their own set of rules. Make sure you read and take note of these rules before you attempt to post in one of these forums.
- Don't use capital letters, excessive!!! (Exclamation marks) or??? (Question marks). It seems like you're shouting!
- No lame referral schemes. This includes freeipods.com, freepsps.com, or any other similar scheme in which the poster gets personal gain from users clicking a link.
- No asking for money for any reason whatsoever. We don't know or care about your friend who lost everything, or dying relative who wants to enjoy their last few moments alive by being given lots of money.
- Do not inappropriately advertise your uploads. In special cases, it is acceptable to mention new uploads in an approved thread (e.g. New Users — We'll Snatch Your first upload), but be sure to carefully read the thread's rules before posting. It is also acceptable to discuss releases you have uploaded when conversing about the music itself. Blatant attempts to advertise your uploads outside of the appropriate forums or threads may result in a warning or the loss of forum privileges.
- No posting music requests in forums. There's a request link at the top of the page; please use that instead.
- No flaming; be pleasant and polite. Don't use offensive language, and don't be confrontational for the sake of confrontation.
- Don't point out or attack other members' share ratios. A higher ratio does not make you better than someone else.
- Try not to ask stupid questions. A stupid question is one that you could have found the answer to yourself with a little research, or one that you're asking in the wrong place. If you do the basic research suggested (i.e., read the rules) or search the forums and don't find the answer to your question, then go ahead and ask. Staff are not here to hand-feed you the answers you could have found on your own with a little bit of effort.
- Be sure you read all the sticky threads in a forum before you post.
- Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic they care about.
- Try not to post comments that don't add anything to the discussion. When you're just cruising through a thread in a leisurely manner, it's not too annoying to read through a lot of "hear, hears and I agrees. But if you're actually trying to find information, it's a pain in the neck. So save those one-word responses for threads that has degenerated to the point where none but true aficionados are following them anymore. Or in short: NO SPAMMING
- Refrain from quoting excessively. When quoting someone, use only the portion of the quote that is absolutely necessary. This includes quoting pictures!
- No posting of requests for serials or cracks. No links to warez or crack sites in the forums.
- No political or religious discussions. These types of discussions lead to arguments and flaming users, something that will not be tolerated. The only exception to this rule is The Library forum, which exists solely for the purpose of intellectual discussion and civilized debate.
- Don't waste other people's bandwidth by posting images of a large file size.
- Be patient with newcomers. Once you have become an expert, it is easy to forget that you started out as a newbie too.
- No requesting invites to any sites anywhere on the site or IRC. Invites may be offered in the invite tracker thread and nowhere else.
- No language other than English is permitted in the forums. If we can't understand it, we can't moderate it.
- Be cautious when posting mature content on the forums. All mature imagery must abide by the rules. Gratuitously sexual or violent content which falls outside of the allowable categories will result in a warning or worse.
