2,140 Items in my seed folder, im hoping there is an easy way to change all the ports?

Yeah, similar situation though not quite as intense.  W/transmission w/the windows GUI (not actually part of the transmission project, but gives a utorrent-like interface using transmission's RPC interface.gui.  One can multi-select torrents and change some things, but not everything.  Fortunately, it *looks* like changing the port is one of those things that can be changed via mass selection.

Perhaps of more interest: why the port change?  It *seems* an unknown amount of work for all users (maybe trivial, maybe a pain), but how does it benefit the site?

p.s. Nice work on the new icons...

A. Why are they so huge and have no scalability?
B. new icons takes longer time to load into browser memory/cache > page freeze (time varies between machines and browsers+page type > user/browse/offers/adopt). I blame Data URIs.

C. HTTPs links for forum avatars aren't supported.

btw, does anyone have the old icon sprites?

I like the new icons, though I agree that they're a bit bigger than necessary. One issue I have with them though is that it's nearly impossible to see the favorite and wishlist icons on them now. The icons themselves are too small in comparison to the category icons, and they're also in a position that makes it difficult to see at a glance.

So changing the port basically means you need to edit your tracker from
Code: [Select]
http://tracker.bakabt.me:2710/<your torrent pass>/announce.php
to
Code: [Select]
http://tracker.bakabt.me:8443/<your torrent pass>/announce.php


Changing the tracker is very easy on Āµtorrent/bittorrent. Just select all relevant torrents and go to properties to edit the tracker at once.


I also have experience with rtorrent. There is a folder called .session (/home/<user>/.../.session) where the client stores all .torrent files. Grab those files and use a tracker editor app to edit all torrent trackers at one go. After that replace the torrent files in the .session folder and restart rtorrent.
(Don't touch the other files in the .session folder! Those contain your resume data and torrent statistics. Removing the resume data means you need to rehash all files which needs time and some disk load. Also one more thing: the .session folder contains all torrents. So if you have non BBT torrents, you need to find a way to exclude those, because the tracker editor I use can only batch edit all torrents in 1 folder. You don't want to change non BBT torrents into BBT torrents, right?)


I spend some time trying this with Deluge, but unfortunately I wasn't able to succeed. I don't use other torrent clients, so you need to figure those out yourself.
Thanks quite easy with the link to the editor like you said.
  • Went to my rutorrent options/advance to find my session folder.
  • Used WinSCP to get there as a list.
  • Added filetype to the bar sorted by type.
  • Downloaded all .torrent files to a folder inside the tracker editor folder.
  • Opened editor deleted trackers that were shown.
  • Added old tracker to the list.
  • Change old port to new port 8443.
  • Updated trackers via "Update torrent, insert new trackers before, and remove duplicated trackers from ORIGINAL list, accept changes."
  • And viola done.
I could probably make a rutorrent picture guide if it would be helpful.

It does, quite a lot, the port change is required. As you may have noticed we're for the most part protected behind CloudFlare to help mitigate DOS attacks.
However currently the tracker is the only exposed element. Once we finish debugging we'll need to change the port to one that they support, and we'll be fully covered.

I like the new incos, but as it was allready said they are a bit to big. Also I want to ask, how I change the port at my Vuze client. I have no expirience with such a thing.

The icons looks good but if its going to THAT big might as well put a cover for the series inside TV/Book instead of it being just a mecha head.

Cool icons  :mml: and now that they are vector images, they'll always look good.

Next up, automatic rescaling of the page depending on the resolution of the monitor ;)

Guys, I gotta hand it to you, AB will never be as good as BakaBT  8)

Gotta say I prefer the old icons, small and compact and less intrusive. Now they are huge and I can't help but take my eyes off them as I am looking at the list as I browse. It's too notice and detracts away from me focusing on the titles.

Wish there was a revert to old option. Not really sure why there was a change needed in the first place.

The new icons are nice, but they are to big and distract from the rest of the page.

I agree with most of the sentiment here. The icons, while they look good, are too big. To the point of looking ridiculous and out of place, as if my browser had an issue loading the site.

C'mon, everyone. A lot of people hated the site overhaul and we are now used to it. The same thing will happen with the new category icons.

Regarding with the tracker, I'll just wait for you guys to finish before I get back to seeding. Hopefully, you'll announce it ;)

B. new icons takes longer time to load into browser memory/cache > page freeze (time varies between machines and browsers+page type > user/browse/offers/adopt). I blame Data URIs.

There was a sharp spike in RAM usage when I tried to load the Adopt page, page froze for 15-20 sec.

There are many fine details which would be lost and wouldn't look as good if we used original dimensions.
We tried several different scales and slightly bigger looked best. We didn't scale them up too much (around 5-10px), and I fairly certain that most people to whom they seem too big are either using lower resolution than 1920x1080 or it just seems that way because they were used to the old layout.

We'll consider tweaking the size a bit, but I'm certain someone will provide a script to resize the icons. They are SVG after all.

Transmission should be fairly easy, it's got a JSON API, so it's easily scripted.

For replacing the announce URL in Deluge I wrote a Python script that uses Deluge's API a while back. I'll update & post it when the change happens.


Will the new port be HTTPS (8443 suggests so) or will HTTPS be supported?

I think the new icons look just fine.

I just noticed a new thing that's quite intriguing.  Maybe its been there for a while and I've simply not noticed.
A bounty on adoptions?  Most interesting!
I wonder how that works.  I'll have to browse the wiki and find out more. cajole someone into adding details in the wiki  :)

That's not so new. Bounty works as you'd expect it.
Upon successful competition of an adoption, depending on the work you invested you'll either get the 1/10th of the bounty (for minimal or no changes, if none are required), full bounty, 1.5x bounty for a really good job, or 2.5x bounty for excellent work. The amount you receive is, of course, at the supervising mod discretion.
