zigmund Posted April 25, 2007 Report Share Posted April 25, 2007 Over in the Demonoid forum there are an awful lot of postings about ratio not updating.I can't find any reference to the content/format/programming of the event messages.As far as I can determine the "event=stopped" message contains the amount uploaded, for each torrent, since the previous "event=started" message.There are conditions for the stop message to be linked to the corresponding Demonoid account.What is needed is an acknowledgement from the tracker to the uTorrent client that the "event=stopped" message has been received.If the client doesn't receive this it should assume the stopped message hasn't been received, and the next "event=stopped" message should be the amount uploaded since the client was started, or if there is a prior "event=stopped" acknowledgement, the amount uploaded since then. Ratios would then be more accurate. Obviously there would be no problem with the client recording this locally.Then provided the condition for the tracker being able to attribute the amount uploaded to the correct account is met, we would all get credited for the full amount uploaded (seeded) even if the odd "event=stopped" message didn't get through. The next event that got through would correct the error.As far as I can see there is a flaw which can be corrected by adding feedback in the form of an acknowledgement to "event=stopped" messages.
