It's been a pretty brutal week for me, so I haven't gotten far with this idea, but I thought it might be fun to have a thread in which we weigh different factors and rate the free trade bootleg torrent sites. When I get a working model if we have enough interest, I will put something in the free downloads section and delete this thread. Any thoughts? PM Kochman or me if any interest or thoughts on how to rate the sites, if you have thoughts and would like to remain anonymous in ideas or ratings, that is fine too, although I am not about to let Duck take over on some bizarre rant Laughing . I think this would be interesting in maximizing the collecting experience on the internet, some great great stuff out there in the free trade societies, not to be bought or sold.

Here is a shortlist of sites, any to be added please let me know, while some of them are "private" to a point, I am including them anyway.

tapecity
dimeadozen
planetrock
hungercity
shnflac
flacshn
zappateers
longliverock
crosstowntorrents

This is a great idea cheesebeer...
Some initial ideas for voting/ratings categories on a scale of 1-10, than an average score or a combined score...

Population - meaning, how many people are seeding things...
Availability - meaning, how many torrents are available...
Quality - meaning, the quality of what is offered...
Exclusivity - meaning, do they have stuff you can't find anywhere else...
Variety - meaning, the variety of artists available (perhaps we could just break it down into GD related, and Everything related... because I don't want GD trackers taking a hit because they focus on GD)...

So, for example... under the GD Related column, we could have
Quote:
Josefus' Superior GD Tracker
Population - 8
Availability - 7
Quality - 6
Exclusivity - 9
Average/Total = 7.5/30


Those are my initial thoughts, definitely room to expand on this idea...

Thanks for the vote of confidence, I am looking forward to doing this actually, I would like to share the knowledge and have some definite opinions to share.
Great idea for the rating system, couldn't have done any better. .

Cool, well, I am with you at least... surprised some more people didn't want to join in with this easy task... I mean, I can't rate all of the ones you mentioned, but I can rate some.

Also, there is one for the Cure that I used:
Only registered users can see links on this forum!

or net... I will find out and get you the right link.
