Summer is nearly over for us in the Northern Hemisphere, and with it we think it's due time for a little clean up, because winter is coming!
This summer has brought us a lot of big changes in the inner workings, look and feel of the site, some more welcome than others, however, another thing it brought was a plague of washed up ads replacing most of our images hosted on imageshack. Luckily we have a solution, but a clean up is due.
All torrents that are still using imageshack in any shape or form are put to adoption. BakaSHOTS has been in service for quite some time now, so there has been more than enough time for torrent owners to port their images.
As some of the more observant users may have already noticed, we made some updates to the adoption system to accommodate this, making it more useful then it already was. The new addition - Bounty.
Bounty is how many bonus points you will be rewarded upon successful completion of an adoption. It will also increase daily, to give motivation for more unpopular torrents, and can now be a great way of boosting/fixing your ratio.
Depending on the task it can be:
● 1/10 of the amount for a small edit,
● 1.0x default amount,
● 1.5x for a good job,
● 2.5x for an awesome job
Usual rules for adopting still apply, you have to write a short request with your motivation behind adopting (what's wrong with it, what do you intend to fix), and you have to own the files before adopting. And to prove that you do own them you should have the torrent in your active list as seeding.
Additionally, there will be a staff recruitment soon, probably in few weeks, so if you were thinking of applying as staff, this can be a good way of showing an interest in the site and rack up some points.
