Tracker is down for maintanance
« on: April 14, 2016, 01:55:34 am »
Hey guys,

We're working through some things.
Tracker is down for hopefully only a short while.
We'll let you know when it's back up.
The site should keep working.

-J

Duki3003 Update: The tracker is up as well.

---

Force Update: 17/04/2016

We are currently under attack by someone who obviously hates BakaBT.
Sofar he does 2 kind of attacks:
- Syn flood
- udp flood

But no worries, we are working on a long term solutions against this.

I think I got a few dozen to a hundred extra bonus points because of it. Do i get to keep them? Cuz I have no idea how many I actually earned from it, I recently started seeding a half dozen of them so I'm not even sure if they're actually unearned or not

Edit: never mind, I'm bad at math apparently. 6x24=~140 I got thrown off by the big increase and the fact that they're all Bonus Torrents made me jump to conclusions. I thought someone hacked BBT and set the bonus thresholds super high lol

That would be an oddly specific thing to do :P

Its happened in the past (excess bonus points I mean)

IIRC, at the time it was decided to let the users keep them.

I thought you can't get more than 10 bonus points per hour then how can you get 100+?
also if your torrent is not active (tracker offline) how are you getting bonus points?

is this a power user perk? -_-

Ah this just means I can continue to put off making that Little Busters Music torrent longer :)
There's nothing here, because I'm too lazy to put something here.

No I'm just dumb, I downloaded them yesterday so it was like 20 hours of bonus points at 6/hr. I did get a few extra tho, I think. If the tracker is back up then i guess a lot of people still haven't started seeding again cuz I've still got 3 or 4 extra bonus torrents

It kinda got complicated, one of our admins had something urgent come up, which is unfortunately unavoidable, and will be away for a few days.
So it will take a lot longer then we initially anticipated. The remaining admins will work on it in the meantime, but without his help it will not go as smoothly.

Currently ETA is anywhere within 24h to several days, depending on how things progress.

To think in the hours before the tracker went down I was worried because Dark Souls 3 kept crashing my system and getting all my hosted files back up was taking ~1 hour each time. It bothered me because I specifically downloaded every poorly seeded torrent I could find trying to keep that "torrents unavailable" number at 0 and every time my system crashed it would go to between 5 and 15 (the number of torrents I'm the only host of seems to vary a lot). I suppose if I were truly dedicated I'd get some sort of NAS system and never go down for more than a minute or two.  ;)

Then the whole system goes down for a day and suddenly I start thinking it's not really that important that the least demanded .1% of torrents be constantly available. Really it's more like an OCD kind of thing for me I guess.  :laugh:

Oooops, looks like even though the tracker is back up there's 1 torrent unseeded:

Using the bogus negative keyword search trick to make it show up (funny how it will say there's something unseeded then nothing shows up when you click the number  ;) ) and it's "Strange Dawn Original Soundtrack [MP3]". Time to queue it up so that when it is re-seeded it stays that way.  :)

People like you that do this are what helps make BBT the great place it is though.  :thumbsup:

It's the duty of the elite to protect the ignorant masses.
