Seed Points

One thing that differs BCG from most other trackers is their unique so called "Seed Points" System.
As you are supposed not to Hit'n'Run on BCG, you have to archive a file ratio of at least 0.8 on each torrent.
If you downloaded a old one with no other leechers on it or if your upload speed is very slow this can be a pain.
At this point the SP System comes into play which "helps" you to get a 1:1 file ratio.
All you got to do is to keep the torrent seeding, and if it fulfills certain conditions (Min Seed Time, S/L Ratio, ...) you earn Seed Points.
If you reached the needed number of those points, it's file ratio automatically becomes 1.
So, you can see this system as a kind of Ratio-Free System with a minimal required Seedtime. :top:

Referrals (Invites)

The Invite System is also a little bit different from other trackers.
You can create Referrals (Invites) which your invitee has to enter on the Fake Page in order to be able to signup.
Be aware that the generated codes only last for 1h and you need the Badge of Honour (No Hit'n'Run Points) to be able to generate them. :wink2:

Our New Referral System (http://www.blackcats-games.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=20522)

Cheating:

Well, I didn't try too much and it's too long ago that I could say something for sure.
I recommend you to use the Vuze Mod and go for speeds < 100KB/s on well seeded/leeched torrents and you should be fine.

## EDIT:

Best tracker for games :tongue: I love their system to get ratio tto 1:1 even if there's no leechers!

Best gaming tracker hands down, I often download old torrents and the speed is always great.

hontoCorti
24.06.09, 02:37
I like the tracker also very much because of their variety of x360 games;)

They also have many PAL games...

The torrents there last very long and also for some month they have seeders and fast speeds...

The seed point system is very interesting. You just leave the torrent in the seed and earn seed points (starting from 3 days) to get a 1:1 ratio.

I think that is one point why the torrents last so long.

They only give out invites sporadically to members (longer than 5 month active i think) and only if they got the badge of honor - means they have no hit and runs at all...

If you have to exit a torrent after leeching it is no problem, if you continue to seed later, you have time to reach 1:1 ratio i think one month or so.

It will be a seeded hit and run then and you can still keep the badge of honor;)

Good way to keep seeders in a long time

Many people says is the best gaming tracker I've never been there but looks nice

Also I'm not a big fan of video-games

29.06.09, 03:14
It's a great tracker because it's almost a ratioless. All you got to do is seed and it will eventually became 1:1 even though no one is leeching - seedpoints system.

A big plus is you can find really old games here which is hard to find in other trackers.

And the login page is cool

Keep One thing in mind that BCG staff is very cruel if they catch you cheating,trading etc then they will disable you whole invite tree or they can even ban the user that has invited you.
They also talk to other tracker staff's and trying to disable you from those trackers too...
BCG - BitmeTV - Goem - What.cd - Waffles
i was disabled once when i argued with Cirno and admit that i have traded BCG referal:tongue:,i said him fu** off...i will find another referal .... and will trade again
then got banned from the above 5 trackers

Of course there's more to this, but basically just leave your torrents seeding, they'll get SP eventually. The tracker is pretty much ratio-free.

07.07.09, 04:53
Outstanding tracker, the recycled torrents are great, I don't see any reason or incentive to cheat at bcg, the seedpoints and the reduced number of user classes are a very good way to discourage cheating. Also if you are caught cheating there you will maybe generate a chain reaction of bans.

The thing I love about this site is that the seed point system makes cheating not necessary! Sure, leaving your computer on for a few days is a pain but it's worth it for the most extensive library of games there is out there. I love BCG!

It means you've never hit & ran on torrents. Make sure you've seeded all your downloads for the required amount of time...

yoco
07.07.09, 19:02
Hm... and how do I get it back, cuz I never really did a hit&run, it's just I didn't know they had that system where you can get back to ratio 1:1, so I just removed torrents! :rolleyes2:

Readd them and seed until you hit the time barrier.

Perhaps you missed something? Check this (http://www.sb-innovation.de/57191-post30.html) for more info.

hontoCorti
10.07.09, 16:23
every torrent has to be seeded for 1,5 days < 500mb and for 3 days > 500mb
then the torrents will begin adding seed points...
but also the seeder leecher ration has to be low enough, that means if there are too much leechers you wont get the points since you earn through uploading anyway..

There are like 5 rules when the seed points will begin to counts (also only for a limited number of torrents simultaneously)

If you can't start seeding now because you have to turn of your computer it is no problem because you have 1 month or so to clear that "seeded hit and run" by earning seed points...

i think the system is quite fair and noone has to cheat there really...

currently have a ratio > 3 and it was not very hard..

anon
10.07.09, 19:28
The seed:peer ratio must be 20:1 or the torrent must have 0 leechers, and only two torrents can gain SP at the same time, if I'm not mistaken.

It's a great system and makes BCG practically ratio-free. :smile:

Hellboy
10.07.09, 23:47
Tested and working - in order to clear hit and runs i run mratio or any ratio tools with speeds 300KB/s + on even those torrent that dont have leechers but i stop them before update,
This method always work for me:biggrin:

TorrentLeech is better than BCG for sure

Comparison between TL and BCG is not a good Idea as former specializes in scene releases while BCG is no doubt the greatest gaming tracker with all obscure and new games available on single platform.

HnR system on BCG is one of its kind which is further supported by their exclusive Seed point system, so if you want to avoid an HnR at BCG all you have to do is to seed that torrent to 3 days (if it is more then 500MB) and continue seeding it until your HnR cost is covered by SP system. as simple as it sounds.


Perhaps you wanted to say I hate seeding torrents to a whole week.

anon
14.11.09, 17:55
TorrentLeech is better than BCG for sure

For new games I'd say that's right. TL will have a better pretime, and they'll be great for cheating on.

grebetu
14.11.09, 18:58
I wouldn't say tl releases only new games. They often release old scene releases.

anon
14.11.09, 18:59
That's right, although for me their speeds have always been quite slow when compared with the latest torrents. Perhaps only home users were seeding the ones I downloaded.

grebetu
14.11.09, 19:07
well i can't argue that, often people tell me things like "it's just 4mbits, can't believe how slow that is" and i just smile bitterly :)
for me it's all full speed but my connection sux and probably can't max out any seeds.

Its not matter of speed or pretimes, who actually cares if you play game a day or two later then TL users. Its often still way ahead when it actually comes to the stores (at least here where I live). Greatest advantage of BCG over TL is that BCG has great collection of older games, while TL fails even at some not-so-old ones but unpopular ones. Few examples are Morrowind, Two Worlds, Gothic. I know that when I recently searched for (some of) these, couldn't find them on TL.

SBcheater
17.11.09, 16:58
TL fails even at some not-so-old ones but unpopular ones. ..... I know that when I recently searched for (some of) these, couldn't find them on TL.

This is because TL is not a specialized gaming tracker, instead its a 0day tracker and doing their job pretty well, no doubt BCG has a very exclusive collection of games not found anywhere else including gamegui, ntorrents, Bitgamer even on so called retro gaming tracker underground torrents and even if you found your required game on these you will not find anybody willing to seed them for you, at BCG they have very less dead torrents (this is perhaps due to their good seedpoint system) and if you request for a reseed your request get fulfilled within a week. therefore I must say BCG has a lead on its rivals .

shadowww
17.11.09, 17:22
Well I hear many complains about BCG staff recently so its not everything ideal. Heard they banned whole invite tree when they found a cheater.
And they ban even for worse reasons. Pretty incredible how guy got banned just because they found in their log that he didn't read rules.php. He was like month old member, with a good ratio, never cheated or anything. Downloaded just one torrent (and fully seeded back) I think.

grebetu
17.11.09, 17:29
the biggest grudge i had with bcg is that they disabled like 5 of my accounts for inactivity :)

i think they had longer inactive timespan for powerusers, but disabled me several times few GB's under the power user limit that i've been working hard for :)
Next time if i decide to use it, i'll just cheat my way into PU.

shadowww
17.11.09, 17:34
Yea, inactivity is a bitch trackers-wide. Lost bithq that way.

Good thing is this forum do not prune users as trackers, because I didn't log in for months here :))))))

grebetu
17.11.09, 17:47
well depends on a point of view :)

i lost at least one account here when they changed something and deleted all low level accounts, and i lost at least two on 00de where i was before ddj moved here. i don't think young generations appreciate how hard is for older people to find free time to follow all boards, trackers and stuff :)

3. Enter a valid email address (NO HOTMAIL) and code in the boxes given. Then submit.
4. Check mail for link and proceed to signup page
5. Fill in your details and submit. this will then send you a completion email and more importantly, the keyword.
6. Back at Your Company Name (http://www.blackcats-games.net) you must type in the keyword in the search box. Username pass fields will appear at the foot of the page.
7. Enter your credentials at the username, password fields and hit submit. Enjoy BCG

Technically, you're not forced to download the whole thing because of having no choice (which is what I think you've understood), it's just that the rules forbid it.

Yes, I was thinking they can do it by some technique.

I'm not on BCG but I'm guessing that this rule is similar to hit'n'run rule in some trackers. Just for looks.

Yea I almost went on IRC ranting how some dumbass "leeches" torrent that I recently snatched and seed there waiting for my seed points.

Idiot didn't download single byte from me (and I doubt he did from any other seeder because its quite small torrent and he was sitting on it for around 12 hours just being reported as leecher wtf). And there is no peerlist where I could check it out.

Luckily he is off and my SP pouring in again. ^_^

edit: omfg, just after I posted this here I checked my bcg profile and sp overwiev and mysterious "leecher" is again on my fking torrent. -> "S/L ratio - Failed!"
going to sleep now, will see tommorow how he affected my seed points. =_=

The worst thing of BCG , you cant partitial leech there. If you want to one game from pack you must download whole pack ! lol

It may be bad if ur real dl, but from a cheat point of view its good

Although in this case the implications are slightly bigger. When hitting & running you're leeching off others giving back nothing or almost nothing, which is never good (although depending on the circumstances isn't always bad either). When you do partial downloading on BCG, you ruin a fantastic means of others to gain a good ratio honestly, just look at shadowww's post above.

On the other side, this system screws you if you only want one game from that 100GB pack...

shadowww
29.05.10, 22:07
Well I somehow collected points over night needed for that torrent, regardless of phantom leecher so I'm off that torrent now. good for bcg, its ratioless tracker in my book. And with nice upload bonus I got from my inviter I doubt I'll need to cheat there at all. Since I will not use that tracker for popular releases found at 0-day trackers...

all sites TL , revTT, BitGamer and iplay i had

Take a look at all these categories. While for PC gaming, scene tracker might be just enough, there is much of other gaming devices that can use software from BCG.

Just took a screenshot of categories, they changed it day ago, so this is how it looks now:

As for whether BCG is worth it... if you only download 0-Day/newer games, you have no need for it. I'd say its forte is its archive and strong retention for old games, achieved via Seed Points.

I wish members from your site would read the rules on BCGs, even you lol

I have just woke up so i may miss things but there is a lot of crap talked on your site regarding BCGs.

1: We do not prune accounts anymore, only new members that have not done any downloading/uploading in the fist 30 days/1 month

2: Referrals had nothing to do with BG-UG-Gazelle games, we just need more members and i am sick of staying closed, but even giving all these referrals and taking away the auto punishments isnt working, only 2,000 new members in the past 2 months. We have harsh rules to stop the bad members, doing bad things, but it looks like we may be too harsh and stop good members doing good things just incase they make a boob in inviting a bad member.

3: The BCGs Birthday bonus, if we cant do something for our members that have been with us for ages on our 7th bithday, then we are up shit creek. In all honesty its not really having any effect lol

http://www.blackcats-games.net/index_old.php you can see the stats at the bottom of there. and they are vitually the same as they were before we done this, so yes we can trust the members (not all obviously, but the majority.

4: The referral time has now been extended to 24 hours, its not 1 hour or 6 hours anymore.

5: Downloading Rule, is just dumb, especially to keep your account, we want members to download what they want, when they want, not download stuff they dont want just to keep their account.

There is about 5 other things that i have seen on SB-I that got me wound up but i cant be bothered to go searching tbh lol

The one good thing about SB-I from my point of view (and this is saying something considering you are worse than FST, Trading and Cheating). is that you at least keep saying that its pointless to cheat on BCGs, but the 1 thing i keep hearing that pisses me off is, its great for old games, but new games you may as well use a 0 day tracker, Why?, just so most can cheat or hit and run with the buffer they have cheated with. It just doesnt make sense saying as we give the members the bloody ratio, you dont need to cheat.

anyway going to wake myself up now, just thought i would get some things off my chest, and i am not joining SB-I thats for sure, i just go their to read a bit in the BT forums.

Same here, I see no point in downloading new games from general/0-day trackers. It's a games tracker, one should download every game from there.

It's really bad, having such a tracker with such systems and a great community and people think it's only good for great games.

If this applies to everything, then there's no point in having what.cd because all the new music is available on "general/0-day trackers"

---------- Post added at 10:53 ---------- Previous post was at 10:48 ----------

Same here, caballero. What's the point to have a games tracker if 0day tracker can fulfill our need?. No, BCG and others is used to download older and newer stuff especially older ones. Their retention is very good for games. Meanwhile in general tracker, often some new games got low speed. Dunno about higher level one though. :biggrin:

Some news:


BCG Birthday Bonus:

I know we said we would run with this till the end of August as our Birthday is August, but as altinertia is back, he has said he wants to wait till the bonus has finished, before he even begins coding anything new.

Well I would prefer he starts whatever he has planned as soon as possible, so the BCG Birthday Bonus will be removed Saturday 31st July, and then he can get to work.

I have no idea how long it will take him to complete what he has planned, it could be 1 month, it could be 6 months, but it will improve the site.

So if you have anything in your Bookmarks, or any Hit and Runs you need to download/seed, then i suggest you start sooner rather than later as you only have 1 week to take advantage of the Bonus.



Jul-23-10 - Fake page and referrals: - (stoi)
The fake page has gone, and with it the only way to use your referrals, so I have taken the liberty of removing everyones referrals until a new way can be coded, hopefully in the next few days.

We will probably be opening up the site as well for the 1st time in 2 years or so, but again I am not sure when that will be.

In other news altinertia is back coding with us again, as he has been away, he has seen what is working and what is not working, so i believe he has a few ideas to change things around a bit. I do not have any idea what these are, or when they will get coded, and I know for a fact, some will hate whatever he does, and others will love it (we just cant please everyone, and quite a lot of members hated SP when we put it on, and some still do. and I may even hate a few things) but I am putting my trust in him to make this site even better than it already is.

So expect to see some changes over the coming days/weeks/months on here, and I am guessing (but it is just a guess) that they will include the achievement table in one way or another, so thats a bit of a heads up that if you want the benefit of whatever is going to get done, start looking at your table.

stoi
03.08.10, 23:35
Max users 50000
Registered users 33771

so letting in 16,229 new members (and thats just in the 1st wave) in all honesty i am tempted to go the way every other tracker does it and the way we done it in the by gone days (not saying we will but its an option).

Prune members that dont login for so many days.
Leave it at whatever number we decide for max users.
when a spot opens because a member got pruned, someone else can get in.

Most dupes are created for trading/selling, but if we are primarily open to begin with, I just dont see the point of creating or even trading for/buying an account if its pretty easy to get in. (obviously they still will but meh).

Well, my own honest review of this tracker.
It has coding problems. Many usual functions of the site will give you an error, such as changing your avatar.
The tracker does timeout way too often lately as well. Also, the design of the site is a bit archaic, something that will fit nicely in 2004 :D

But what's important, the games. There are some exclusive things there, no doubt, like scans and copies of game manuals, and game help books.
However, the games are mostly the same you'll find anywhere else, like Demonoid. Demonoid is superior when it comes to European versions of the games, because a lot of the stuff there is USA and NTSC games, good JAV OST as well.

I'd say if you are a gamer with an intricate taste, like you need your latest Starcraft game guide, your linux games, or wanna watch The Making Of Spore, your games in Japanese, then this is a good place for you.

However, if you focus on popular games, like Battlefield BC2, Sims 3 Ambition, or Call of Duty MW2, BCG has them, but not exclusives, same releases that general trackers will have.

Excuse this review, it might be biased because I like to keep my trackers to a minimum. Why have 10, when 3 can have all I want? But if you feel good about having different trackers, and think you might be looking for something that you might not find in your favorite tracker, this place might be your new favorite :top:

stoi
08.08.10, 15:20
well lets be honest here, a game is a game, doesnt matter who rips it, its the same game/quality, and as the scene usually gets them 3 weeks before release, if a member then rips it, its a dupe.

yes movies/music you can have varying quality of the same movie/album, games you cant.

the tracker went down 3 times for 20 minutes each, we found the problem it wont go down any more, give us a feaking break its been great for months.

the naito design has well, just been designed (was made by a member), altinertia is going to do other themes, but i agree i hate ICGstation.

If you have problems changing your avatar, tell us, not here, ffs how can we fix it if no one tells us anything.

If you dont like us thats fine, but at least think about your arguments before you post them.

It was a review man, don't take it personal. I said good things about your, I like it, but when you see VERY well designed stable small trackers like Login :: hey.fux0r.eu (http://hey.fux0r.eu/login.php) I do feel BCG should move a bit more into the future.

Here is a review of fux0r http://www.sb-innovation.de/f210/fux0r-21495/

Something I did not mention but that is good about BCG is that members are very helpful when you have problems getting a game to run, although there is some bickering although it is rare.

And stoi, you did a good thing with BCG, I don't know anyone who cheats there because of the SP, and many people luuuuv it, so let us have our opinions. :)

stoi
08.08.10, 15:48
Ok you can have your oppinion but my points were still valid, its really really hard for a gaming tracker to have "exclusives" actually i would say it was nigh on impossible, and even if we did, we allow our memebrs to upload them elsewhere anyway, i think "exlusivity" on a tracker is the lamest rule in the bittorrent handbook tbh.

The downtime, we fixed it, we found the problem, its because we are making the tracker run smoother, and a query was left in that used the wrong data (but when you have 100 files and 1000`s of lines of code that is easily done.

Yes the themes could do with a complete overhaul, but we cant please everyone all the time, some hate drop downs, some hate side links, some hate java crap, but yet others love all 3, so whatever we do, we wont please everyone (and we run torrentstrike not tbdev, its basically the same but with a new template system, which is a lot harder to mess about with (its not just 1-3 files like TBdev).

also the complaining about the avatar problem, i have just asked the staff and not one of them knew anything about it, so if members, like you, dont tell us, how can we fix it, its just lucky i was a member here and seen your post, or it could have been broke for months (as changing avatars reguler, is not something the staff do).

maybe i came over a bit strong, but i have just seen a post on FST in a BCG thread, asking FST members what he should do with a wii game he got off BCG, why the hell ask them, ask us, thats what does my head in lol (same with the avatar problem). we are not ogres (ok cirno is close lol) but we do listen and take notice, and believe it or not help.

and btw for your info

close all other tabs (in fact best to restart the browser). Go directly to your profile page, make changes and submit.

that is for everything password change, avatar change etc, its a security fix. (which has just been done the past day or so, so its not a bug its supposed to do that)

SomeGuy
08.08.10, 15:55
Well, you understood me wrong, I didn't mean that you should have "exclusives" like group buys, or whatever.
I meant that most releases are SkidRow Razor or whatever other release groups are. For a community, I was hoping more people would be sharing their own CloneDVD ISO's of games, and of console games etc, which is on average not the case, but that might be helped with the new blood being brought in.
I also don't like how it is rare int he title or description to tell whether the game is Multi5 or Multi9 etc. So I see a game that is 6GB or 9GB or 14GB and have no way of knowing whether it will have the language I want or not.
But again, these are details, as I said man, you are doing well with that tracker. I suggest you join fux0r when signup opens and see what a tracker of only 5000 users has done, because honestly pictures do not do it justice. Most ergonomic and user-friendly layout, options, and settings I have ever seen.

PS: Changing the Browse Default Categories in the profile gives out an error as well. I think changing anything in the profile does that. But hey, it happens :)

stoi
08.08.10, 16:04
Yes but like i already mentioned, btw we do have quite a few cloneDVDs, but once the scene release it, no member can upload their copy, as its a dupe so gets deleted, if a member uploads his first, then the scene release, then that is fine, both can stay, but the user one tends to die and the scene one takes over.

and as we have very very good retention, scene releases are on that long, that by the time a user gets a chance to upload a copy he ripped, the next console is out lol

as for the languages, if the scene hasnt got them in the title then they wont be listed, they may be listed in the descriptions, and more than likely in the nfos of the torrents.

I got into tracker some month(s) ago by an invite from a friend (non cheater). And it used me well. Got amazing 20gb upload for start which is more then enough for me, as I use BCG only for non-scene stuff, hard to find elsewhere. Just downloaded some time ago dragon age DLCs (downloadable content) and 1.4 patch + special loader so I don't even need to have cracked .exe, all that stuff couldn't find on many large and popular trackers like TL, RevTT... Actually some wannabe scene group just took DLCs from BCG, renamed, added their scene prefix and release it on scene trackers lol. And even forgot to include one DLC in a pack.

Also SP system is amazing (makes tracker as no-ratio type basically), I see announcement they removed that SP kicks in immediately and now again you need to get some seedtime in before. Which is ok. As I actually find myself pursuing seedtime achivements lol.

See no point in cheating, as I'm doing quite fine this way. No need to risk my account for nothing. Good job BCG staff.

I also want to quickly review this amazing tracker.
I had doubts, yes, but as I started using it I see why it's so great.
first of all, no need to cheat. slow connections can manage just fine by seeding for days. the SP system is the best thing yet. even beats no ratio trackers.
the 20 GB kick start is indeed really helpful.
another amazing thing is the X360 games - they have more seeders than the dedicated X360 tracker "XBOX-SKY" itself!
60 seeders for a year old X360 game - amazing!

only thing that bothers just a bit is the design :P

great work stoi :)

even beats no ratio trackers.

hehe, how is that possible?
don't get me wrong i like the site but there can not be less than no ratio :P

dreamer
17.09.10, 12:04
because in no ratio trackers, people will neglect the importance of seeding (even unintentionally).
when you have a system like SP which credits you for seeding the torrent and even calculates the needed time and GB left deducting your real upload, you get a year old X360 torrent with 30, 40 and even 60 seeders!
show me that in FTN :P

anon
17.09.10, 15:20
Agreed, the SP system is more "fair" than standard ratio-free systems, since you have to seed more the biggest the file is - I think putting both a 5MB 0-Day app and a huge Blu-Ray movie inside the same 72 hours bag, as it's the case with the latter scheme, isn't the best.

If you find the rules, don't rely on them. Half the rules are not applied because they are using a strategy of having as many members as possible. As anon said, look for a recent post in the forum.

I think its time for a new categorie called "Tracker Reviews"!


Great idea.Tracker reviews for the win!!I'll start making a tracker review right away.

You can tell this thread is old.

Anyway, for those of you that don't read FST, it appears things aren't looking too good.


We may be fucked.

kernal errors on the servers, Hosts dont know if its fixable, hopefully it should be, but we just dont know yet, I dont even know whats wrong with it 100 percent. (whether its just the HDDs or the server themselves)

Best case to worse case.

Fixed, we come back up. (really hoping for this one).
just the HDDs we reinstall, but we dont have a populated DB backup (one of the tables was 89gig, so we just never got around to it :( (someone shoot me)) so we start again with tbdev
^^ we try to covert Gazelle as quickly as possible, but it still might take awhile, and install that on the HDDs and open up. again everyone will start from scratch, and no torrents
Actual servers have gone boom, get a cheap dedicated server from somewhere, get tbdev or gazelle on (probably gazelle, see above)
Thought I had last night, just say fuck it and let it die, but i very much doubt this will come to fruition, put too much blood sweat and tears into this to just say fuck it. (and we still have 4-5 lives left)

We will be back, when we will be back though I dont have a clue, could be 2 days, could be 2-3 months (hopefully not that long though) but we will be back.

Our IRC server is up, on a backup, thanks to askew1 for that, you can get to it with the domain irc.blackcats-games.net, we will try to keep that updated with any news as soon as we have some.

wtf is this dotdefender, its blocking me from posting edit: wouldnt let me do the percent sign, huh.

Blackcats Announcement

Announcement: Some concerns regarding referrals answered!
This announcement is to pretty much answer most of the concerns I saw in the referral thread. I will list and address them here individually.

1. You are not going to be punished for the person you refer. We understand that things happen and sometimes people just turn out to be bad members. Don't fret or worry because you will not be held liable for their actions. The only time you might be held responsible is if you have a history of referring terrible members.

2. Cirno is no longer staff so no need to be afraid of the big bad wolf anymore, btw he is a really nice guy.

3. As an act of good faith I went ahead and removed the country ban on Brazil. Brazilian members, please feel free to send your friends referral codes as they will now be able to sign up.



4. Staff members will not add download onto your account because of what your referral does so dont worry.

5. Stoi is the person who will be allocating referrals for the most part. He plans on changing the requirements for the referrals monthly to keep members on their toes. One month they can be ridiculously easy to obtain and the next they might be very difficult to obtain, so please use them when you have them available.

5. At this current point in time we will not allow you to stock up on referrals. This is for a few reasons that I will not go into here but referrals will expire monthly so use them when you have them as you never know what the requirements will be to obtain them the following month.

Hope this answered most of your questions. I will be updating the FAQ sometime this week when I have the time but please remember that stoi, I, and the rest of the staffing team here at BCG do this in our free time and this is in no way our profession.

Cheers!

Indeed. They've gone through a lot of things, including downtimes, DDoS attacks, PayPal freezing and some lesser legal threats in their decade-plus run, but I guess you can't win them all.

I wish stoi and pjcnet the very best, and hope they walk out of this ordeal free. They were both the level-headed kind of staff that doesn't think they're "elite" just because they operate a tracker (stoi even had an account in this very forum and made several posts).
