    IPT vs FL vs TL

    Out of IPT/TL/FL, which has the most content and on which of them are you most likely to find a "rare" movie or TV show?

    Here's the torrent count for each. It's only meant to give an idea, as spam uploads and packs heavily influence how much "real" content a tracker has.

    IPT: 1,031,150. Oldest torrent is from 2006.
    FL: 149,800. Oldest torrent is from 2007.
    TL: 1,295,350 according the newest review (see below).

    Note that I'm no longer a member of TL; it was rare for it to have something the other two didn't. I also noticed retention there bombed in the last few years (possibly due to the very frequent open signups?).

    Another choice that hasn't been mentioned is RevTT. Their archive is good, and the high request fill rate is famous in the community. Just permaseed and don't talk to petrolcan and you'll be fine.

    I'm on TL and it shows 2 invites on my dashboard but when I click my profile it says "disabled". That's weird.

    revtt has me on a country ban so no hope there to enjoy their request system. Yes I heard their staff are trigger happy.

    Only VIPs can send invites now. At least it's possible to obtain VIP status from seeding points, if you're persistent enough.

    Sadness. I dropped my account there after the 2012 breach, but from what I've been told they remain good on this regard.

    But TL has 10 days seeding requirement, which is a bit too much imo. Can you tell me what's the seeding time requirement on FileList and IPT?

    • FL: 48 hours or a 1:1 ratio. Torrents must be seeded for at least 3 hours after completion, then you have 1 week to meet either requirement. VIPs are exempt. Reportedly, this rule is only enforced manually and for very gross offenders, but I don't feel like verifying that with my account.
    • IPT: 336 hours or a 1:1 ratio. Strictly enforced even for partial or incomplete downloads, and reaching 40 H&Rs gets your account warned. H&Rs can be "zapped" by sacrificing an amount of bonus points proportional to torrent size or upload credit. (Numbers may not be exact as they have changed several times since introduction and site documentation is sometimes outdated, but the base mechanics are as described.)

    Using "show as leecher, 0% done" in Extreme Mod or the equivalent settings in Serenity are the only effective ways to bypass IPT's hit & run system, but doing so is risky in small swarms.

    IMO FL+TL is enough. FL eventually gets rips/uploads from PTP and BTN albeit slower.
    IPT is bigger, has more torrents, more seeds for older torrents.
