zigmund Posted April 26, 2007 Report Share Posted April 26, 2007 In order to update my ratio, Demonoid (and other trackers), need to know my identity and IP address before the "event=stopped" is sent to the tracker.With dynamic allocation of IP addresses (as opposed to static) I have to login to Demonoid to update my IP address.So (if like MailWasher and FTP Pro) I could put my Demonoid username and password into uTorrent, it could login to Demonoid and logout. This would update my current IP address (at the moment I have to do this manually), then, the "event=stopped" messages would link by IP address to my Demonoid identity, and my ratio would be correctly updated.Having to login to Demonoid manually, to update my IP address, so as to get my ratio correctly updated, though it works, seems archaic, when it could be done automatically by my uTorrent client. Having such a facility in uTorrent wouldn't affect trackers other than Demonoid, or those that work in a similar manner. It would be an addition to extend uTorrent not a fundamental change.There are other improvements I could suggest to improve updating ratios, but one suggestion at a time.Over successive days my ratio has been 1.15, 1.11, 1.17, 0.83, 0.88, 0.90, 1.02, so I've cracked the updating by logging into Demonoid just before the event message is sent.A varient of my proposal would be if I could put my unique Demonoid name in my client, and it could send it to (or be interrogated for) by Demonoid and other trackers. If other trackers don't choose to conform, then that's their problem, but there is no reason why, if they want to track ratios the Demonoid way, it shouldn't work for them. Just sending my unique identity doesn't even involve logging in or sending passwords. It would be "What's your name" and combining it with the amount uploaded and reporting this to the ratio accounting machine, which in the case of Demonoid, is run by them and is part of their network.
