Only 1 in 80?

I see that the registered user count is now over 84000.
But the impression I get by point ranking is that only about 1000 - 1500 have stayed to be active members.
(approx.70 points puts you in the top 1000)
Does this really mean that 83000 have joined and then almost immediately fallen by the wayside?
Or is the site being used by many just to find torrents?

Well, alot of newbies and a 'few' {i hope} plain old leechers, but alot of newbies will accidentally open more than one account and forget one or something..other than that I don't know, But it might get a better answer from Ask a Mod or Site Request threads?

When I first discovered this place I didn't even register, I just downloaded what I wanted. And then I had to register to download so I did. But i didn't really notice that there was a forum and I only rated a couple of shows and left a review for one. I just started being active a couple of days ago.

Perhaps it should be required for Downloading that everyone be signed in?

Just a thought, dont know if thats a good idea?

Don't know if that is possible?

Don'tsee how it could cause server overload or anything if they are already just coming to the site and DLing anyways.

I thought that's how it is now. because when I'm not signed in, whenever I click on the download link it takes me to the log in page.

For exemple, when i use my KTorrent Browser i can't download unless i AM signed in but if i user Mozilla i can download just fine without loging in.

But what about downloads beeing legal and all without login but to be able to download there should be somekind of share ratio that if you had not Xshare ratio you couldnt download [the file, not the torrent]?

I think its understandable since i can't explain it better.

I'm not sure that signing in to download makes much of a difference. I'm almost certain that the server is recording your IP anyway whether you log in or not.

yes, I made it so you no longer have to signup to download as then we just get a bunch of accounts that don't help anything. soon I'll change the "Registered Users" on the home page to "Active Members"

yesterday we had about 25,000 people visit the site. many use it to find videos, torrents, tv listings, etc. but only a small percentage actually contribute by submitting or helping in the forum

Reviews are a valid contribution as they are useful to people who are window shopping for something new to watch..but the trick is to not create spoilers for people who love surprises on their favourite shows.
