Hi, I'm having the same problem that Van. reported.
I left three bonus torrents active all day and not a single point has been counted. Checked the torrent pages, restarted the client, redownloaded the torrents, but nope. Still no bonus points.
Up there Krudda said that it is a problem of the website not reporting the stats correctly. Is there anyone else that can cofirm it?

Thanks, keep up the good work.

I didn't have any active torrents yet I gained 2 bonus points.

Why do I experience the opposite of your problem?

In my opinion, torrent IDs are reporting the stats of someone elses torrent IDs or a different torrent altogether or something like that. I can't see anything else it could be doing. What will resetting our stats do aside from absolutely nothing? The problem still exists.

For example, this says I downloaded 41GB and uploaded 391GB, yet my upload / download totals haven't changed at all.
Also, the torrent is 3.7GB, not 41GB and I only downloaded it once, not nine times.
Apparently I've only been on the torrent for 6 hours, but that is not true! I was the second person to snatch it (according to peerlist) last week.

Overall torrent stats seem to be accurate for the most part, individual torrent stats were not recorded properly.
If that is true, we won't be resetting the overall stats, just individual torrent.

Bonus points are not counted.
Despite the presence of many active bonus torrents (more than ten), I did not get even a single bonus point for several hours.

Confirmed, not as many bonus torrents but points definitely don't stack.
Who needs a signature anyway ?

I'm also having the problem with bonus points not being added. Since yesterday afternoon my bonus points have remained at 624 even though I checked several times and was earning anywhere from 2 to 6 points per hour.

The bonus point issue should be solved now.

So does this have anything to do with why my downloading speed is so slow? It was always fine before.

Unlikely, the tracker is only there to give you the list of peers and keeps track of your stats.
It doesn't have anything to do with your download/upload speeds, that all depends on the peers your client connects to, and your actual connection.

Seems to be back in order indeed.

Hmmmm - still seems to be getting "Passkey Not Found" error on a new torrent, and all my older seeded torrents are offline too? Am using uTorrent 1.8.5, are there any known comparability issues with clients and the tracker?
Thanks :)

Some issues we discovered with the public keys.
Use the tracker with your own account or wait till we resolve them.

If that is true, we won't be resetting the overall stats, just individual torrent.

I voted no thinking all our stats would be reverted
That would make this week equivalent to a Sitewide Freeleech
And people would get away with mass DLs
But Duki cleared that up

I recently became power user so I don't know much about peerlists
But all of my other stats are up to date

People with messed up stats some how maintain an identical ratio

Sorry for double posting,
But this is a different matter altogether so I wish this remains as a separate post


Reporting what I believe is a bug

In order to ask a probable
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
, that I had on torrent http://bakabt.me/torrent/344608/mousou-stampede (NSFW)  ... I shall call it Torrent No. 1

I had set the DL under the port 8443 and proceeded with it since I could connect to more peers

I had simultaneously a different DL under port 2710 for torrent http://bakabt.me/torrent/169882/a-housemate-came (NSFW) ... I shall call it Torrent No. 2

While the latter had finished DLing while I was still at home
the former did not start (as it wasn't being seeded i.e. 0 seeds at that time)

When I returned home (I was away for ~5 hrs)
I saw that Torrent No. 1 was ~38% done but my connection was off
I reconnected and changed port back to 2710 (which I initially had forgotten to do) since it wasn't announced yet that we should make the change
The DL resumed and finished

It has recently come to my attention that neither torrents were tracked

I admit that Torrent No. 1 was partially DLed under tracker port 8443

But Torrent No. 2 was not ... which leads me to believe tracker URL is not the issue here (IMO)

Here are the screens that I can take now -

Are you a moron or do you just not get it?
WE HAVEN'T UPDATED THE TRACKER TO USE PORT 8443 YET.

You won't connect to the tracker using that port because it's not bloody opened. The only reason you got anything is because the tracker was once scraped on port 2710 by your client before you replaced the url to a one that will not work.

Not to mention that the torrents you picked are also Freeleech...

I feel really embarassed right now ... totally skipped my mind (the Freeleech!)

Thank you for answering question regarding the peers thing though

Sorry for that
 :-[  :-[  :-[

EDIT
For the second time I saw more peers (for some inane reason) when I used 8443 (i.e 2 out of 3 times)
so I wanted to ask why and hence did that only to post a screen and ask why I am getting more peers in a port that is not being used

Like you have stated I am getting action because the tracker was once scraped on port 2710 by your client
But somehow, it still doesn't make sense as to why it shows more connected peers than the working one
I had updated tracker, removed and re-downloaded torrent but it would get same result

The stats on the other hand was not a bug but the sheer consequence of my negligence and rash judgement
I saw 48 KB UL (in stead of 44MB) and my mind automatically blocked everything else
I saw 0 DL and checked the other torrent's stats to have 0 stats and I immediately concluded it was a bug
I completely overlooked the fact that it is of file size <100MB making it Freeleech or the F

The discrepancy re: UL is normal since it happens all the time whenever connection stays off for a long time
Sorry for the embarrassing find

Because the peer count changes, and the tracker will update that information when you connect to it. What you did is scraped it once, got some information, perhaps even a rough estimate, and then prevented your client from scraping again by using a faulty url (unopened port).

I guess that's also the reason why I wasn't able to download anything from 8443. Because the client didn't update through 2710 first :whistle:
