    eBookVortex review



    Tracker: eBookVortex
    Category: elearning
    url: eBookVortex
    Registration: web, they are newish/small so usually are open. Dl credit invite system.
    Notes: Although small but you can still find some gems there . This tracker covers a huge array of subjects as listed below.
    Tools Tested to work: Vuze Extreme Mod v4.3.0.5, Ratio Master 1.9.0.; Speeds of over 100kb-130kb are the norm on the most popular torrents.
    Established: 30-Aug-2006 but the name has changed about 2 times since then
    Exclusivity: Since this is like my first private tracker and the site doesnt advertise whats exclusive to them Im not sure what is exclusive to them. However there are active members who donate cash to the site.
    Why its worthwhile: Considering members are willing to donate as much as 60 Pound Sterling for their cause Im sure it will go places. In a general sense no matter how small or large the tracker is there will be some things that that private tracker will not have, but on the other hand people are not centralised and therefor possibly the files from one tracker will trickle out to others eventually. General rule the more trackers you have the better the possiblity of you finding what you want due to the centralised nature of BT. Get in now whilst the gates are almost always open.

    Ratio Info
    Why do I get a "Not authorized (xx h) - READ THE FAQ" error?

    From the time that each new torrent is uploaded to the tracker, there is a period of time that some users must wait before they can download it.
    This delay in downloading will only affect users with a low ratio, and users with low upload amounts.

    Ratio below 0.50 and/or upload below 5.0GB delay of 48h
    Ratio below 0.65 and/or upload below 6.5GB delay of 24h
    Ratio below 0.80 and/or upload below 8.0GB delay of 12h
    Ratio below 0.95 and/or upload below 9.5GB delay of 06h

    "And/or" means any or both. Your delay will be the largest one for which you meet at least one condition.

    This applies to new users as well, so opening a new account will not help. Note also that this works at tracker level, you will be able to grab the .torrent file itself at any time.

    N.B. Due to some users exploiting the 'no-delay-for-seeders' policy we had to change it. The delay now applies to both seeding and leeching. So if you are subject to a delay and get the files from some other source you will not be able to seed them until the delay has elapsed.

    Seeder Bonus Exchange
    What? A Seed Bonus Exchange?
    You can get download credits two ways.
    1. Standard upload it and then download to reduce your ratio (credits)
    2. Seed it for x number of hours to get GB Download credits or exchange for invites.
    Seeder Bonus
    Here you can exchange your Seeder-Bonus (currently: 6.00).
    (If the button's deactivated, you do not have enough to trade.)

    How do I get points?
    You receive 1.0 point for every hour the system registers you as being a seeder.

    ************
    You get 1 point per hour. But it multiplies depending on how many you're seeding.

    5 or more: 1.5x
    10 or more: 2x
    20 or more: 2.5x
    30 or more: 3x

    *Sumarised and collated. Even their faq didn't have everything in one place

    Very good review considering it's your first one, you even included a pic of the most well seeded and leeched torrents. However, I'd like you to write a bit more about the tracker - when did it start, does its design make it easy to browse or not, are there any tracker-exclusive torrents, what makes it worth having in your opinion?

    If they host the files in Rapidshare and you don't have a Premium account, then I'd say yes.
