Once upon a time, this world had an own place for it's treasures.
Then a dragon deserted the land and destroyed everything. The citizens fell into agony and the king became terribly ill.

Using his last powers, the king sent his knights to clean the lands and bring back the treasures. After months of crossing the lands and collecting pieces of the country's belongings, it finally was the time to defeat the dragon...

THE TRACKER IS BACK!! :p


Announce-URI: http://tracker.hongfire.com:2710/announce

The torrent-listing will be updated over time, that it becomes more useful.
Also the torrent-forums are being switched back to "order by last post" as default.
A RSS-feed also currently is in work (using btrssx (http://lolifox.com/-/btrssx/)).

* Please notice, that it takes up to 60 seconds till the tracker notices, that there is a new torrent it has to track (to reduce the load on the database).

So...tracker, baby! How long was it been? :makes love to the tracker:

EDIT: Do the old torrents that use the HF tracker need to be re-done? Because I'm getting "Failure: unregistered torrent" from all the torrents that had the HF tracker on them when there was no tracker.

Is the ratio going to be under names again, or is that something being planned out still?

Since...I have yet to torrent anything from this site xP

cause it's a NEW tracker, not the old one ^^

just reupload the torrent-file to reregister it.

ShadowZero1. Are you uploading torrents to the forum or simply opening them and seeing if they will run? I'm pretty sure any torrent not posted or reposted in the torrent section will not be recognised simply from having a valid tracker in it. Simple common sense, really. No reason to let other people steal services intended for members, after all, and put a huge and unwanted strain on the system.

Meanwhile, how about some quick instructions? Does the old HongFire tracking file still work, or will a new one be made available. Or does it matter? Are there any other important differences we should be made aware of.

And many, many thanks. Busy right now, but should have some stuff to post in the morning after work.

All old torrents that are still in the attachment database should work as long as the tracker is used as the announce-url. It can't be in the optional announce-list

So I can edit my torrents to include HF tracker as first announce and any others as optionals? All mine were tracked by DA since tracker was down when I started torrenting. Or just make new torrents for any that aren't close to dying? I only posted 9 or 10 so far.

seriously it's such a good news ...now we will get a such a good christmas with all the new things that will be released here .. can't wait ..

A question yet unanswered ...is it the same type as the old one or is it an restrictive tracker ?:kakashi:

Does this mean ratios will be put back on the site, or not? Also are there plans to start banhammering worthless leechers... or perhaps tentacle rape them... or neither? <_< >_>

Less than a month left, then we can call this campaign...

Yes I as long as http://tracker.hongfire.com:2710/announce is the first and main tracker. you can add as many optional tracker as you want.

Don't think we will have the ratio back.

2 reasons

1. to reduce the server load.

2. To protect member's privacy aginst MP** and R*AA. :kakashi: You definatly don't want them to know how much you uploaded. >:D

2. To protect member's privacy aginst MP** and R*AA. You definatly don't want them to know how much you uploaded. Nah, it's not a big deal. If the feds say anything a user can just say he DLed an unlicensed Japaneses game that is 10 years old and will never get released in America. And because it is a percent/ratio, they can't tell how many bytes the user DLed. So thy cant proove ****, and everyone is innocent untill proven guilty.

So we don't really need to worry about it.

As for the server load.... er... well, Aww f*ck it! Comeon man! Bring back the ratio! I need something else other than rep point to proove to the rest of the world how big my penis is!!1

Can we atleast have a ratio identifier without the actual information?

Like change the member title to red if it's below 1.0 and green if it's above?

At least that's what I think. :P

Anyways...

Is it mandatory to re-upload all previously uploaded Torrents and have it only with HF's Tracker?
Any torrent which did not have the HF tracker as the main one (the main tracker is the one on the first line of the tracker list) will need to be re-done with the HF tracker as the main for it to work. Meanwhile, I get the joy of having to re-upload most of my torrents...

And about the ratio thing, I don't think it will. I mean, a person with a share ratio of 1.0 and a person with a share ratio of 33.5 will both have the same green. People won't even be able to know what other people's ratios are, just that it's above a certain number. It's only if it ever goes below 1.0 that it will become red. So no "share ratio-whoring"... just persecution of leechers...

Atachi
12-14-2006, 07:03 PM
ratios won't be back as long as we are on vBulletin and tied to mysql - it just causes too much CPU-load to track.

and that again would cause the 2 year old problem with the servers being out of sync and corrupted tables in the DB.

maybe one day when we do a complete switch and a different DB-backend.
but the chance to revive it in the current config is at about 5% ^^


as for the broken unicode on the tracker-page:
vB forces latin-1 (cause it's a pain in the ass) and thus the torrent-page, too... but the text itself is in utf-8... will be fixed (forced only on that page) somewhen in the next few days.

I seriously doubt it, off-site torrents will most likely still be allowed... just with HF's own tracker we can start hunting down and killing the leechers. <_< >_>

Just go to view and change the encode to UTF-8 When you at the torrent page. We still try to fix to make it auto load UTF-8 instead having to select it.

Wow, thanks for bringing the tracker back. This is surely one of the best Christmas presents that I'm going to receive this year. Very nice.

There are goods and bads for not bringing back the ratio system. There are already rep-whores and post-whores, we don't want *seed*-whores. A lot of the members who want to keep good ratio usually seeds with the main account, and downloads with a dummy account. That would be bad.

It will be back, but it will be just a simple bar meter and it wont be a simple upload/download. It will be more complex, so the ratio wont effect the system.

Hope seed-whores like Kitee said don't appear though lol

darkandshadow
12-14-2006, 09:06 PM
Well, if I do find anything I could use, I'll seed as much as possible.
(When I torrent something, I usually try for a 10.0 seed ration per torrent)
But, I still have my record to uphold xD

12-14-2006, 09:10 PM
oh wow... I didn't expect the tracker to be back anytime soon ^^;;;
And here I was a couple days ago wondering what the donations were going to... :p
Kudos for the tracker being online and as Kitee said, this is indeed a wondrous Christmas present for the Hongfire.

Good news indeed !!!

yesterday Hongfire posted a torrent with the new tracker but it didn't work. After the 2 hours of down site for upgrading yesterday, the tracker works fine !!! (I noticed this morning that the tracker is back).

Well, Hongfire asked me to test the new tracker then I'll do it this night.
I'll test the tracker with only HF tracker, thus no dht or others trackers. Maybe the 2 or 3 next torrents will contain only HF tracker...

That's nice to hear. Well good job to the admins for there hard work "Arigatou Gozaimasu" ^^b. The knights brought back the treasure of the "Great HongFire Tracker". HongFire4ever!. Alot of people are going to enjoy this.

This ratio meter Shragei talked about and like some ppl suggested the possible JAV section sounds all nice as well. They are just ideas but they sound interesting. It could make HongFire even more populair and it could grow substansionally.

I used HF tracker for two torrents and have gotten comments/posts that some people still get the dreaded invalid url error, or just won't let them share even though they might see peers. I use MakeTorrent2 to build torrents and Azureus to share, with no problems usually. Yesterday I saw quite a few peers sharing both torrents from my client, with numerous clients, and with dht working, so don't understand. Could the problem just be them instead of HF or myself? I will just add an alternate tracker to fix it, so was just wondering.
