Best Practices

Be connectable

Torrent clients will usually have an indicator at the very bottom of the client indicating if you're connectable. In short, this means if your port is open or not. Usually this won't be a problem, you can use a tool such as Port Checker to test. has an exhaustive list of routers if you need help.
If your ISP forces a NAT, or you're behind a restrictive network such as a University or a workplace, your best bet is using a VPN to switch networks. We recommend Mullvad.

Don't be afraid to limit download/upload speeds

Some people may have daily bandwidth caps. If this is the case, it's important that you don't accidentally leave the torrent client running as it may cause you to go over your limits. Any of these torrent clients will have options for limiting speeds.

You don't have to seed if you can't or don't want to

Typically private trackers frown upon “hit-and-runs”. This is the act of downloading a torrent and then stopping/removing the torrent so it stops uploading. Our generous patrons help us pay for servers so there is no obligation to seed if you don't want to.
We do plan on tracking statistics such as amount downloaded and uploaded however we will never enforce any ratio or HNR rules.
If you do want to seed, great! The more people that seed, the faster downloads will be so whatever you choose is good with us.

Automate it!

Some of our users have created some neat tools to automate the downloading of torrents, you can find the list here.
