    I got kicked out! Basically I registered during open invites, then had to leave for a week with no internet. When I got back the activation thing was in my email but my account had been deleted!
    T_T I HATE this. Soo bad. And now registrations are closed for like... ever?

    Yeah, just had to rant a bit. [​IMG]
    Anyone else had crap experiences with sites like this?

    Demonoid is good, But I think it bans users if their not active the for the first week.

    Dumbass, it probably says, that if you don't activate your account will be deleted in a couple of days. Now I won't give you an invite.

    Indeed. It's amazing how people don't read.

    Well, 3 things.
    1. The invite took like a day or so to get to my email. (Registered the 19th, email arrived the 21th according to my email timestamp.)
    2. Where in my post did I say I wasn't aware of the time-policy demonoid has? I was bitching about the fact that it gives you such a short time, rather than the usual 1-2 weeks.
    3. WTF am I supposed to do when I am away from the internet when the email arrives? I had to go to a weeklong camp where compys were forbidden, so yeah, what the hell am I supposed to do? I mean, if the email had been sent right away and gotten there I would have been fine, but it delayed.

    Bah.

    Lol. I was pissed off when I wrote this.
    I'm calm now.
    Sorry fischju & hiratai

    It happens. You could have just asked for an invite.

    I uploaded Avater videos with ratios about 3.21 and the size of the original file was around 10 gigs, now my stats still show 324MB uploaded... [​IMG]
    Anyone having similar probs?

    Something like that but I think it was external, I have a crap ratio cause I don't use demonoid (or torrents) that much and I have a crap bandwidth limit on this ISP atm..

    Similar problem, but mine got stuck when i had a good (1.3ish) ratio, so not complaining.

    (not that i 'hit and run' download because of that, i still seed to a good ratio [​IMG])

    I see you post alot around here, and you always seem really nice.

    Do you want an invite? (as long as you keep a good ratio :S)

    Demonoid is one of the poorest private trackers there is, there are FAR better sites out there, for example TorrentLeech.

    Demonoid is great for books, I've found stuff there I couldn't find anywhere else.

    I can give you and invite if you want. I don't even use Demonoid (or torrents for that matter) I just give out invites.

    I have an account there but Demonoid is so basic Mininova is even better
    Probably the only reason people think it's better is because it's closed and don't know what it actually is

    Demonoid is broken as hell. I remember the first day uploading 20GB overnight and none of that was counted (yes by demonoid tracker and not external ones).
    However, im not getting counted when downloading either, so I guess it balances it out [​IMG]

    But I rarely use it anyways, as other have mentioned. There are tons of better trackers out there.

    I think the FAQ mentions those problems, I think it has to do with IP, if its dynamic or whatever. TBH I don't really know what I'm talking about lol.
