What are the different user classes?
When a member has under a .5 ratio they have 3 days to make it above that or they are warned for 7 days automatically by the system. If the member does not make it to .5 in those 7 days they are demoted to muppet and they have another 7 days to make it to 0.65
. if they do not their account is automatically disabled by the system. A muppet is only allowed to have 2 active torrents. When a Muppet achieves a ratio of 0.65, they will automatically be promoted back to User class. User

How does this promotion thing work anyway?
Must have been be a member for at least 4 weeks, have uploaded at least 65GB and have a ratio at or above 1.05. The promotion is automatic when these conditions are met. Note that Power Users will be automatically demoted from this status if their ratio drops below 0.95 at any time.
Must have uploaded at least 100GB and have a ratio at or above 3.0. All Power User conditions must also be fulfilled. The promotion is automatic when these conditions are met. Note that VIPs will be automatically demoted from this status if their ratio drops below 1.50 at any time.
Just make a regular donation. The member's ratio must be greater than 1.0 at the time of the donation; otherwise, it goes to purchase upload credit and no star or promotion will be received.
Assigned by staff at their discretion to users they feel contribute something special to the site. This is also a donation promotion (if not
donating for upload credit). Anyone begging for Elite status will be automatically disqualified.
