Question about top torrent sites listing on the home page...

Postby thejynxed » Thu Apr 19, 2007 11:18 pm

I was wondering what the criteria was for the listings, as you have Mininova in the top slot, even though several other sites on that list not only have more torrents, but more seeded torrents, etc.

Is it just random web traffic hits only?

It was my understanding that the order is decided by the amount of traffic that each site recieves.

Well...if it is going by that, Mininova wins on traffic from webspiders, bots, etc. It is after all a public dump site. All the other sites like Isohunt and similar just trawl it for torrents to list. -shrug- Oh well :)

Isn't it just a fixed list?
Surely 'btjunkie' should be much higher if not at the top?

Guess only the admins can answer....

Pretty much, yeah.

We do sometimes re-arrange them a little, but it's not something which is done automatically, nor regularly.

Trouble is, everyone's got their own idea of what the order should be, so it's pretty impossible to find an order that everyone will be happy with.

I seem to remember this question being asked once before (can't find the thread right now), and as I think I said then, if we can all decide on an order which most people are happy with, then I'll happily re-arrange them :)

perhaps have bin-monthly polls on who should be at the very top? we can then list them in order of votes the various sites got. People can also nominate new sites to put up...

When some people are a little more irritable then usual, I guess then I can honestly say, 'well, must be one of the two time's of the month again' ;)

If they don't see their favorite torrent sites like they imagined.

oh, please! :roll: I'm sure people are smarter when it comes to torrent sites than when it comes to soccer teams :roll:

and in any case... the mods can make a point of keeping the discussion adult-like...

slyckers, you're going to go around crying in corners and screaming in threads because the site you prefer isn't top of the list, are you? :roll:
