What network stats do you think should be added

What networks do you think should be added. I know slyck likes to be accurate, but i think there should be more networks listed.

I don't care about Direct Connect. But I do miss Ares.

I'm guessing the Admins only post reliable stats. And until a reliable crawler is foud for options in the poll, none will be added.
OpenFT is strange. Sometimes it says 100,000+, other times its 1000.
I believe that the Warez stats were removed because the number was an estimate based on Ares's search horizon.

I don't know why there arn't more crawlers. I look at the mldonkey project and think they'd be the perfect guys to put out 1 program to just crawl all the networks. Seeing as how their daemon's arn't suitable for sharing files(yet).

Until then, heres G2.
This ED2K crawler says 6 mil while this ED2K crawler says just under 3mil. :lol:

I'm guessing that you know what my vote is already! :wink:

Ares/Warez stats were taken down for being inaccurate.

Opennap stats could work well. :)

Perhaps network crawlers which give semi-accurate (i.e. not straying by millions of users at a time or getting disrupted by MPAA bots etc) could be added and marked with a [*] next to them stating that the displayed results are likely to be somewhat inaccurate.

I think that OpenNap stats are unlikely to reappear on Slyck. They were removed from the front page a few years ago - probably for a reason.

Another thing that makes Nap stats unreliable is that many users log into several servers at a time, making the total peer population appear much larger than it actually is.

P2P developers have been known to allow network population stats to remain inflated - this could be because high numbers tend to attract more users. Besides allowing inaccurate crawlers to go uncorrected (as in Ares) - there was one P2P developer, EarthStation 5, that claimed that they had 15 million simultaneous users, even though extremely few files could ever be found.

Whats the point in having stats if you really can't trust those numbers?

Why Filetopia? 3 thousand people isn't a big community on the internet.
