Tracking trackers

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing, but please keep in mind that it can be a very bad idea to add random trackers to a torrent. You only need one working tracker, any more will cause bitcomet and your internet connection to do a lot of unnecessary work, and if you add trackers that aren't "open", you'll also have to register the torrent with them, otherwise you'll only annoy the tracker admin, many of whom regularly change tracker urls in an attempt to stop this so their servers don't get hit with thousands of requests repeatedly, for a torrent that doesn't even exist on their server. 

When making a torrent I select one tracker to upload the torrent to, then maybe add an open tracker just in case that tracker is down. When downloading a torrent with a long list of trackers I remove all but a couple that have the most peers so that bitcomet won't continue to attempt to contact them.

I agree - but the reason I posted that was so that it was easier to find 'active' trackers as so many keep vanishing over time.
