    Default Torrent-Invites FAQ


    What's this site all about?

    Torrent-Invites was founded on the basis that all people should have access to private trackers. We opened our doors in 2007 and have been growing and thriving ever since. We offer invites to trackers of all levels and genres. Our members are the backbone of this site as they give as much as they receive.

    I've registered but I still don't have access to the invite sections!

    This is because you are still at 0%. To reach 10% and get access to our invite sub-forums, you must make an introduction and be "repped" into the community. To do this, go to our introduction section and create an intro. Once our intro team has approved your intro, you may begin posting in the invites sections.

    Where are all the invites?

    Invite giveaways are located in the Area 51 section of the site. You can search the different sub-sections to find the invite you are looking for. Additionally, you may open threads offering your invites in these sections. We also have a request section of the forum, where you may request the invite you are looking for. Please note that requests are only open to 33% and up.

    Why can’t I access certain sections of the site?

    Some sections of the site are locked until you have reached a certain percentage of site involvement.

    What is a ratio proof? What is it used for?

    A ratio proof is a screenshot of your tracker profile. When applying for giveaways, ratio proofs are often asked for as evidence of your tracker statistics.

    My intro was rejected. What now?

    If your intro was rejected, you are permitted to ask why. Please feel free to join #TIHelp in our IRC and ask to speak to a moderator. In some cases, you may be allowed to re-apply.

    Where can I read the rules?

    The main rules of the site are located here in the Announcements Section of the forum. However, we also have rules in each subsection of the forum.

    Why are there so many rules?

    The tracker community is a private, underground world that precious few are allowed to participate in. Invites are a precious commodity. Tracker admins are quick to ban if they think you are a threat. To that end, we expect our users to hold themselves to a high standard of behavior. Our rules are in place to protect you from losing your tracker accounts and to keep our community free of vermin who seek to harm us. Our rules are strict but fair, and if you follow them, you will have a long and pleasant stay at Torrent-Invites.

    How can I get my user name changed?

    If you are a Starting Member (someone who has not yet been repped into the community) and you have a valid reason to ask for a name change, you may do so here.

    Other than Starting Members, only VIPs and members who have reached 99% may request a name change. Multiple name change requests may result in unfortunate consequences. Please be sure to choose a name you like, because more than likely we will not be changing it for you.

    Where can I ask for help?

    You have several options. You may post a thread in the Help section of the forum. You may choose to visit us in the Torrent-Invites IRC at #TIHelp, where we have several active staffers waiting to assist you. Or you may send a PM to one of our staff members. Please note that our mods and admins receive multiple daily PM's, so we may not respond to you as quickly as you'd like. Be patient.

    What is this Exalted business?

    Exalted? What Exalted...

    How are people chosen for VIP?

    You may choose to purchase VIP by donating to the site. Staff occasionally appoints VIP to lucky members who have proven their worth. The simplest way is just to donate.

    What is rep? How do I give it? How do I get it?

    Reputation indicates how active and trustworthy you are. Rep is given by clicking this icon: . The more rep a person has, the more you can be sure they have been an active, committed, and honest member of T-I. You may see where you fall in the rankings by visiting UserCP.

    My friend was banned. Can you unban him?

    The simplest answer is no. We cannot unban your friend on your request. He/she needs to come to the #TIHelp channel of our IRC and speak to the mod who banned him.

    I was banned. Can you unban me?

    If you feel you can adequately explain the situation, please come to the IRC and ask to speak to the staff member who banned you. Only the staffer who banned you will unban you, and only if the ban was made in error.

    How do I donate? Where does the donated money go? Are there any incentives to donate?

    You may donate by going to this page. Donations are used to pay for our server and operating costs. Donations of 30 euros or more will grant you access to our VIP Lounge as well as a myriad of other benefits including:

    • Access to the VIP Lounge
    • Prioritized Help in the help channel
    • Larger avatars
    • Higher number of minimum requests open at any given time. At this time, you may have 2.
    • Voice in the IRC
    • A special IRC channnel for VIPs only

    I'm a staff member/uploader/VIP/sysop on my tracker. Can I open recruitment here?

    Yes, anyone with unlimited invites may open recruitment. However, you must have reached the 55% ranking on the forum before we will allow you to open a recruitment thread. There must also not be a current, active recruitment for that tracker, as we only allow one recruitment thread per tracker. We do not require you to have permission from your tracker, however we are not responsible for what may happen to your account if they are displeased with your decision to recruit. Please contact a staff member using this this form.

    I want to be a staff member! Where do I apply?

    You may look in the announcements section of our site to see if we have any openings for junior staff. Note that we do not allow tracker staff to staff at T-I as it presents a conflict of interest for our site. Please note that Super Moderators and Administrators are hand picked by senior staff and by our owner, Dave. Do not ask for one of these positions as we do not take applications and by doing so you are likely to kill any chance of further consideration. This includes current junior staff, which is defined as any staff member below super mod.

    Can I help in the IRC Help Channel?

    If you are interested in working in the help channel, and have proven you understand the rules of the site, PM one of the senior staff members who work in Help and ask for permission.

    I am a blogger and would love to write news for T-I. Where do I apply?

    You do not have to apply. Simply post in the Bittorrent News section of our site and your article will go live in our news section. Plagiarism is not tolerated at Torrent-Invites. Be sure to source any material that is not strictly yours. Anyone caught plagiarizing will be banned instantly.

    Can I have halfop/op in the IRC?


    I want to donate my server/licenses/seedboxes etc to the site. Who do I talk to?

    We discourage anything but monetary donations. However, if you feel your situation is unique, send a PM to Dave, our SysOp.

    I am interested in advertising. Who do I talk to?

    Send a PM to Dave to work out the details.

    Is this site legal?

    Yes, T-I is absolutely legal. We neither offer nor allow any copyrighted content on this site.

    = Offers their services to T-I members.

    = a user is appointed the Exalted class by their fellow Exalted members and/or by decision of the staff.

    Note: Your iGivers have nothing to do with your rank.

    1. CAUTION: RULES! Do not spam the forum with lots of quick non-sense posts. Remember that good reputation is needed to get higher ranks. Feel free to talk only when you really got something to say.

      Posts in some sections may not count, so don't be surprised. Don't ask where exactly. Does it matter when you really have something to say?

    Area 51 Rules




    CAUTION: RULES! TRADING (giveaways in exchange for something else e.g. money, invites / bonuses) IS FORBIDDEN! YOU ALSO CANNOT BE AN ACTIVE TRADER ANYWHERE ELSE.

    CAUTION: RULES! DO NOT PASS RECEIVED INVITES TO ANYONE - KEEP THEM FOR YOURSELF. If you've got friends that would like some invites, you better make them join us here @ T-I


    1. What is it? When should I give it?

    iGiver is similar to ebay feedback and is mandatory that you leave it for your inviter upon receiving an invite or bonuses. You may also leave an iGiver for someone to whom you have given an invite if you feel they have been either an exceptional invitee or terrible one (for instance, if they caused you to lose your account or invite privileges by keeping a poor ratio.) The higher a person's iGiver is, the higher the number of invites they have handed out.

    It can be positive (+1), neutral (0), or negative (-1).

    2. When shouldn't I give it?

    You should not give iGiver if you have not been either a giver or receiver. iGiver should not be given in place of rep.

    3. How to give iGivers?

    There are two simple ways:

    • a) click the number of iGivers in user's iGiver counter in the top-left corner of his post (eg. for iGiver: (4) - you click 4)
      b) click "Submit iGiver For [username]" (found on the right side of the page)
      c) fill out the iGiver form (formerly called feedback)

    • a) enter user's public profile by clicking his nickname
      b) click the iGivers tab
      c) click "submit iGiver for [username]"
      d) fill out the iGiver form (formerly called feedback)

      Note: You're able to give each user only 1 iGiver a day. Also, giving iGiver to the same person more than once is not counted in the total stats (but it's listed and you still have to iGiver them!)

    If you still don't understand how to iGiver, read these instructions:

    Tip: iGiver was once called 'iTrader' - you may encounter it reading some older posts. They are the same thing, only the name has changed.

    How to lock your own thread:

    If for some reason you need to lock it (e.g. you found out you made a duplicated thread, your giveaway is over, you got all the answers you needed and want to prevent it from future spam),

    There are 3 ways to do it

    1. In the main page of a section where your thread resides, double-click the / located to the left of the title so it turns to /

    2. Within the thread:

      click the Administrative menu on top of the FIRST post (you started the thread with)- a drop-down menu including few thread options will appear
      b) make sure the Close Thread radio button on bottom is selected (it should be by default)
      c) click the Proceed button

      Refer here for visual instructions.

    3. To edit (e.g. to add some explanatory / summary comment) & close the thread:

      a) Click Edit Post (the post you started the thread with)
      b) click the Go Advanced button (between Save and Cancel buttons)
      c) scroll down a bit to see Moderation Tools header in Additional Options
      d) click the Close this thread after you submit your message checkbox, so it gets selected
      e) click the Save Changes button

    • User is everything and nothing 120000

    • You can check your current reputation in your public profile (above your rank) and in your posts under your iGiver counter. It's represented by one or more icons like: .
    • You can monitor reputation you've recently received in your UserCP.
    • Users with higher reputation have a higher "rep power", thus they add more reputation points when they rep someone using the "Reputation" button (more than just +/- 1) than a person with a lower rep power.

    The Rep button:

    1. You can't see/use the rep button until you're
    2. After that, the is visible right under the users avatar in the left side of each post. It is part of rep indicator.
    3. This allows you to:

      a) give (+) positive reputation

      b) leave a specific comment / reason why
    4. CAUTION: RULES! Before repping a new user into T-I from the Introductions, make sure you read this: and
    5. CAUTION: RULES! Before giving anyone (-) negative rep, make sure you read this: Rules for Repping

    Tip: Depending on what reputation you have, you get various reputation comments (seen after hovering the icons).

    Note: The "Like" button adds 1 rep point while the "Dislike" button does not impact a member's reputation total.

    When should you give positive reputation?

    You may give positive rep or thanks when...:

    • a post is useful to you
    • a post is useful to someone else
    • a giveaway is made that you like
    • a request is filled
    • a good suggestion is made
    • a post is helpful to the moderators

    So when you should you NOT give positive rep or thanks?

    • when someone makes a request
    • when someone applies for an invite
    • when someone bumps a thread
    • or anything resembling spam
    • in order to receive an invite (you may give rep or thanks to a deserving giveaway it if you desire but please report any threads that require rep or thanks as a condition of the giveaway)


    If you still have some questions, use the advanced search to search the Help Section for similar issues before you ask - it's likely that your question has been already asked by someone else and answered.

    Note: Also look for a thread before you start your own so not to create dupes / duplicated threads. Make a few dupes in a row and.. you know what will happen to you

    Please use the [search] engine before posting any questions.

    How does the promotions for V.I.P. work? Are the posts, rep, time requirements separate from the regular member promotions?

    You must note the V.I.P. promotions works in an either/or scenario. You can either purchase the specific tiered class to automatically be promoted and gain its privileges OR you can purchase the basic tier1 class and work your way up by contributing posts, earning rep, and time spent on site.

    No, the posts, rep, and time requirements are not on a separate system. Whatever posts, rep, and time you have now equates to the stats used to promote you if you're a V.I.P.

    Note: If you're currently a regular 55% member and decide to purchase V.I.P. tier1 you will automatically be promoted to the equivalent V.I.P. class which, in this case, is V.I.P. tier3.

    Since the upgrade to T-I v.3, the site has been extremely slow and laggy. What can I do to alleviate this issue?

    There are a few solutions to this problem. (i) You could try changing the style sheet (bottom left-hand corner) to either no background or white. (ii) You could use a different browser. Many have found using Opera or upgrading to FireFox 4 have completely removed the lag. Chrome seems to work fine as well.

    I changed the stylesheet to Torrent Invites v3 Mobile and now I can't change it back to the regular theme. What can I do?

    Click on the [Full Site] link at the bottom of the page. If that doesn't work, try [this] or [this]. It's always a good idea to try logging out and signing back into your account. If that still doesn't work, empty the browser's cache/delete the cookies and re-login. If none of the previous solution resolves your issue, then go ahead and PM [el2em] to have him manually switch you back to the regular theme.

    Note: You may need to go to your [General Settings] to set the default forum skin back to Torrent Invites v3.1 and save the changes.

    How do I gain access to the Free Invites section? Why am I stuck at 0% progress?

    0% progress simply means you're registered to the forum, but have yet created a formal introduction to be repped into the community. Follow this [link] to fill out the introduction form accordingly. An intro worker will process your introduction as soon as it passes all the necessary requirements. Once you're repped in, you will have access to numerous tracker invites within the [Area 51] section.

    I've reached the requirements for 33%/55%/75%/99%/complete, but my progress level hasn't updated. How do I fix this?

    Ensure you've met the requirements [here]. If you have, try logging out and signing back into your account. If that doesn't work, empty the browser's cache/delete the cookies and re-login. You could also wait 24 hours for it to update itself. The system is working; have some patience.

    I'm new to the torrent scene. How do I know whether or not a tracker is right for my specific needs?

    Please refer to the [Tracker Reviews] section. You will find reviews for numerous trackers and their corresponding acronyms. An index for related trackers can be found [here].

    Do I need to create an introduction and be repped into the community to be able to apply for give-aways?

    Yes. You should pass your introduction and be promoted to 10% prior to applying for invites. PM'ing members to request for invites is against the rules and may need to warnings/infractions/bans. Members are encouraged to report such messages.

    My invite applications keeps getting deleted or overlooked. What am I doing wrong?

    Please refer to the [Invite Giveaway Guide] for proper proof editing. Ratio proofs that are incorrectly edited are usually reported to and deleted by staff. Most staff members will message you, but continuous posting of badly edited proofs can lead to infractions.

    What's the difference between rep points and rep power?

    Rep points are the total amount of points you currently have. Your rep points can be found in the [User CP] across from "Latest Reputation Received". This is the value the system uses to determine your progress level.

    Rep power is the amount of rep points added to another member when you +rep him using the Reputation button .

    • Negatively repping (-rep) another member will only subtract half of your current rep power from their account (e.g., a member with a rep power of 10 has a -rep power of 5)

    Are the Like/Dislike buttons associated to our rep count?

    If someone likes your post, the system will add one rep point to your account. If a post is particularly helpful to you or the community, you can use the rep button instead. Clicking the dislike button will not impact a member's reputation total.

    What is the difference between Feedback Score and Total Positive Feedback?

    Feedback Score is the value based on iGivers received from different members (e.g., if you receive 10 iGivers from me it would still only register as 1 unique iGiver). The value is also visible under your avatar/username.

    Total Positive Feedback is the value for all iGivers received. This includes iGivers received from the same members and, obviously, taking negative/neutral feedbacks into account.

    What posts qualifies as spam?

    Posts that do not add significance or even remotely relevant to the original post. Posts which looks as if they're created just to add to the user's post count (barely exceeding 10 characters). 'Thank you' posts also qualifies as spam; we have the Like button for a reason. The definition of a spam post varies, but just use some common sense and add some length and importance to your messages. These will not only help you avoid any unnecessary warnings, but also add reputation to your profile if other users deem your post helpful.

    What is "hijacking a thread"?

    Hijacking a thread is when you disrespectfully take over another member's thread by going off-topic from the original post.

    Likely scenarios of hijacking are usually found in the Request and/or Help sections. A member hjiacks another member's thread by requesting for his own invite or asking for help on an irrelevant matter.

    Is it against the rules to apply for the same tracker invite in multiple give-away threads?

    No, it's not against the rules. To avoid any confusion, please be courteous and remove your applications from other threads once you've received the invite.

    • Inviters should also PM applicants before sending out the invitation. You'll only run into this situation on those "Just ask and PM me your email" give-aways. It's best to avoid these type of give-aways.

    When should I use the report button? When should I post in the chopping block?

    Report () a post/PM when a member is breaking the [forum rules] (e.g., excessive spamming, exposed ratio proofs/email, flaming, etc.). The report button could also be used to clean up our community (e.g., to report dupe threads, to move threads, to delete irrelevant posts, to refer an introduction to a mod, etc.). It's better to report a post/PM than messaging a staff member.

    Create a chopping block thread when the issue is directly related to tracker invites and the well-being and security of our T-I members (e.g., reporting ratio cheaters, scammers, traders, dupe tracker accounts, dupe T-I accounts, etc.)

    My question is not listed within the FAQ, what now?

    If your specific question is not listed within the FAQ or you need clarification with a certain rule, either post in the [Help] section or submit a help ticket through [Contact Us].
