PreToMe | PTM | Ratioless | 2010
This is a new review of PTM for 2010.
PreToMe is a ratioless, general tracker with many sections. Good pre times, new torrents are always very well seeded. Seeding might seem difficult at first because there are quite a few seedboxes there ( mainly xirvik, kimsufi and OVH ), but remember that this is a ratioless tracker and their bonus system is fantastic.
You get 1 point for idling in the IRC for every hour, plus some credits by seeding torrents you download ( both a speed based and a time based bonus ), donating, winning in the casino, rating torrents, filling requests, uploading torrents ( you have to be an approved uploader ). You can use them to gamble in the casino, request torrents, pay off Hit&Runs, buy VIP membership, buy invites ( 100 credits = invite ).
No wait times or restrictions for new users so it should be easy to start if you have a seedbox.
PTM might be ratioless, but you have to keep a minimum seeding time 60h OR 0.75 ratio on EACH torrent, whichever comes first. This site uses Hit 'n Runs (sort of like a speeding ticket) to punish those who have not seeded long or hard enough. With each HnR you lose a download slot (you can still seed as many torrents as you like). A HnR will disappear automatically after 1 month or you can use credits to buy them off or you can start seeding again within 6h. The only way to get banned is by not seeding your torrents and getting HnRs - basically just grabbing and closing utorrent.
One last thing, keep in mind that if you're looking for music this is *not* the tracker for it. PTM might be a general tracker, but they don't have much music.
