Slycks top torrent and ed2k sites

Postby 216.133.204.228 » Sun Nov 26, 2006 11:48 am

How are these sites chosen to be in the top 10 list?

on this page http://www.slyck.com/bt.php?page=3 it says

i dont see anywhere on the forum where the users decide what sites go to the list or the order in the list? Since icecube posted about mininova being a good site and I pointed out that they dont have a tracker and therefore piratebay must be better it got me thinking about this list and how sites are cattegorized. Anyone know? I dont want mininova at the top they are ball-less without a tracker

One new member doesnt like mininova, lets change the rankings! :roll:
The pirte bay only indexes torrents on its tracker, and not others. So i dont like it much. (i like its attitude and what it represents though).

needless to say, there is no mechanism accessible to site users, or most of the staff, for that matter, to change the rankings. otherwise we would have constant wikipedia-style wars with people changing it back and forth to prove nonexistent points, or just to piss others off, in addition to any legitimate changes.

so, the mechanism works as follows:

you post about it, and if the boss agrees with you, he makes the change(s) himself ;)

Seems to me it was based on Alexa rankings. MiniNova is clearly a larger BitTorrent website compared to TPB. I'm guessing that is what the lists are based on as it seemed to be consistent.

Yea except it would be useless for people looking for objective information about each program or network because it would end up being a fanboy war with spammers thrown in.
