Everybody knows that giving invites is a risky act to do for it may result to a lot of things depending on the invitee. The purpose of this tutorial is to provide people on how to give their invites without worries.
What you are about to read would be a series of steps that you should/may take before, during and after an invite giveaway.
Ask for requirement. Don’t be harsh; ask for something that you think is reasonable and the definition of reasonable would always depend on the tracker level.
1. Ask for ratio proofs. At least two proofs should be enough. This is basic but this would really help on determining the invitee’s experience on the torrent world. But wait, everyone knows that anyone can fake a ratio proof, so here’s what you should do.
· Ask for fullscreen ratio proofs.2. Ask for a speedtest. Make sure it’s a direct link. Again, at least two should suffice. Why at least two? This is to help you determine the average internet speed of the user.
3. If the invitee has a seedbox, ask for a seedbox proof regardless of the tracker level.
4. This is another optional step but this would help you determine whether the invitee is serious on using the tracker or not. Ask him some questions. Examples of this would be asking a BitGamer invitee about his favorite games or simply asking why he want the tracker.
· Be sure to ask the invitee to put your name on the address bar, browser search bar or on the tracker search bar. Additionally, make him put the date of application.
· Now this step is only for paranoid people so it’s optional. Ask for multiple ratio proofs from the same tracker with each ratio proof using different themes of the tracker.
This is the hardest part of your giveaway and should be dealt with seriously. This would help you on choosing the right invitee.
1. Make sure the invitee followed your requirements. If not, you could either tell the invitee again or simply just reject him.
2.Examine his profile carefully. View his posts. View his Igiver. View his join date. In short, know him through his actions on T-I. After that ask yourself these questions.
· Is it mostly spam? If yes, reject it.3. To know more details such as his country or ISP, either check his introduction or just simply ask him.
4. Verify the information submitted in the invitee’s application. We have our own ways on verifying screenshots and proofs but here are some guidelines to those who have none.
· Is it mostly found on the invite and bonus giveaway? If yes, reject it.
· Is the Igiver very low? If only the answers on the above questions are yes, then reject it. Otherwise, you may consider it.
· Did the invitee just join T-I recently? The answer really does not matter as long as the invitee is a contributing member of T-I.
· Check the ratio proof. Look carefully for any signs of photo editing. 5.Do the math. Though most of the information on the ratio proofs is blurred or maybe you’re not a member of the invitee’s trackers rendering the profile links useless, that won’t stop you from determining the truth behind his torrent experiences because the first digits are still exposed.
· Since you asked for a fullscreen ratio proof, you should check the taskbar and look for any software running on the background that is against every rule. Examples of this would be ratio cheating softwares.
· Check the image of the tracker; usually it includes the latest activity of the tracker. This would help you determine if the invitee is using an outdated proof.
· Accept only direct link speedtests and make sure it was recent.
· Whatever you did to verify the ratio proofs, do the same with the seedbox proofs.
· Ask for profile links and note how long has he been a member of that tracker.
· Check his upload. If it’s unusually high, check his speedtest. If that didn’t work, check if the invitee is using a seedbox. Still if that didn’t work, know the tracker. The tracker might have a feature where users may transfer upload credits to each other or bonus systems where users may buy upload credits. If not, then read the invitee’s introduction again and search for clues. Your last resort is to ask the invitee. If you’re not satisfied with the answer, reject him. 6. Check if the invitee had requested on other threads. Read his request on that thread and make sure the invitee had not received invites yet.
7. Check the invitee’s signature. It might say that he’s a proud member of TL and yet he’s asking for a TL invite.
· If you have received some profile links from the invitee, include them on your computations. For example, if user profile links say, 1 week at tracker. Uploaded 400gb and downloaded 120. And speed test is 14mb down and 1mb up. Does this ring a bell. How do you upload 400gb in 1 week time, with a 1mb up! And user doesn't have seedbox. Something is wrong and go with gut feeling. Make sure everything adds up. Now, if this user was in the tracker say 24 weeks. Then this is feasible.
This is the easiest part of your life as an inviter but this should be taken as a responsibility. Now that you have given your invite, you should now cross your fingers and hope that it went well.
1. Monitor your invitee’s profile on that tracker. Look for any suspicious uploads, actions or anything you deem to be not good.
2. Monitor his T-I activity. Make sure he gave you an Igiver. Then watch out, he might be asking for an invite on that tracker again.
3. Lastly, get to know your invitees more.
4. If somehow, something went wrong like an invitee getting banned for cheating, then we always have the Chopping Block.
