Hi Lucy,
When logging in previously to my Cometid account, it was possible to see the ranking lists and how far i was progressing up the list.

Where has the ranking list gone?

Regards,
Bruce.

There is a bug that as just announced was corrected in the new beta version, but we have no idea if this applies to you because you haven't provided the basic info.

It's still there at the left lower corner of your BitComet.

You can also check it from www.cometid.com, after you login, click on score to view your daily score. :)

Sorry for not supplying the basic info

I'm using 1.22 and as you say, the basic score info is in the bottom left hand corner but, before when you signed into Cometid you were able to see what all the different ranks were and what points were required to obtain the listed ranks.

Now when you sign in to Cometid, all you get is your daily points score with the ability to check on how you've accumulated the points over the past days/months etc but I can't see where the rank list has been moved to.

Regards,
Bruce.

PS At present I'm a Lieutenant Colonel with 13949 points. What I'd like to know is, what is the next rank and how many points do I need to get it?

That's what I was looking for, Thanks Lucy.

Any chance we could get that list incorporated into the next version?

Regards,
Bruce.

Hi Bruce, please open your BitComet, go to Help -> BitComet Help, it will direct you to the BitComet wiki, you will then find Comet Passport at the bottom of the page, click on it and you will see the list.

Hi BitComet,

Thank you for all your hard work!
I have just upgraded my BitComet version to 1.22 and this version can't log me onto BitComet at all.
I have used the right user name and password, this has been verified by logging on to CometID / CometPassport without any problems.
It says my password must be between 6-20 digits. I am using the right password without any luck and I have even tried changing my password for a new one, which has no effect either.

This is a big problem for me as without being logged in all my progress has been lost. THis week I was supposed to be promoted to Major General which openned up an additional port for me.

Please Help

What? No, it won't ever open up an additional port under any circumstances, nor is one needed, nor would that be helpful or increase your speed, nor could that be done other than by an operator sitting at your own machine. What are you talking about?


You say the current version is the cause of your woes. Have you tried reverting to the last known working version, and does it continue to work for you?

Hi Kluelos,

Ok, clearly I am on the wrong planet here in my thinking. Below I have inserted ranking on BitComet, which might help me explain myself better. When you rank up in score on some specific rank ups like Recruit to Private for example your Max Resources raises from 41 to 42. How does that help us? Am I correct in saying when you rank up BitComet gives you more of their resources, which help your download and upload speed improve? This was my thinking behind my earlier statement. I thought the hole purpose of getting to General and this points system was away that BitComet could reward the people that support BitComet the most? Maybe you could clarify the issue better please.

As for my earlier problem (I managed to fix it) I tried installing earlier versions which did not help my login problem. I was entering my right user name and password and there was an error that kept saying "password must be between 6-20 characters" now I would click my mouse on the username and place my username in, after that I would push my tab button and write my password down (however here was the catch) after pushing the tab button and writing the password nothing would appear so I would click on the password with my mouse and write it again and then you would see the digits clearly. Then the error message would appear. Even if you click on the username directly write the username in and directly click on password and write it in then (still error message would appear). How I got it to work was click the mouse on the username and write the user name in and press tab button and write your password in even if you can't see the characters and press enter and it works fine then. The next time you login in your username and password is saved so you don't need to bother next time.

I hope this helps anyone with the same issue.

Hi Mrroland, High scores of CometID will help you speed up your download, you can read the details from HERE.

When you failed to login from BitComet interface, could you login from www.cometid.com? Have you tried to change your password? Did it work?

Will you, yourself, actually see a significant increase in the speed of your average download if you have a higher rank?

No, probably not. But if
  • you have have unused downstream bandwidth (which is what lt seeding tries to fill)
  • you have ENOUGH unused bandwidth that filling it would make a discernible speed difference, and which you can't fill by configuring/operating BC better
  • there are many others downloading that same torrent
  • who are late-version Bitcomet users
  • who have LT seeding enabled
then the issue of your rank enters into things and you might see better speed for this torrent.

Come to that, here's something I don't know: does LT seeding happen all the while BC is downloading, or does it only happen when BC is seeding? If the latter then add " - who are currently seeding" to the above condition-set.

Seeding is a flood, the main draw on your upstream bandwidth. LT-seeding is a trickle of otherwise unused bandwidth, The higher your rank, the more trickles you can have, if they exist in the first place which they mostly don't. Is having a General's 50 trickles so much better than having a Private's 41 trickles?

Insufficient data.

The client and the whole system is much more popular and widely used in southeast Asia than it is in the west. Consequently it is far more effective there. It is a good idea but is much more effective with a lot of people using it.

Hi bakers41, did you mean the CometID pane in your BitComet? If yes, can you please attach an image of your CometID pane?

Was curious as to why joined date and rank of CometID not listed in cometforum profile ? Perhaps I should have put this in recommendations /shrug
