BitTorrent Tracker

I'm a super mod at an anime forum where filesharing is quite an important aspect of the site so amongst other things we also run a bittorrent tracker there.
We used to run VBTT but I'm sure a lot of you have heard about the horror's of using it and the reputation of the author and we needed a new tracker.

I call it NuFreedom TorrentTracker aka NuTT although the name won't mean much to you unless you watch the Gundam SEED anime.

Basically, it's written almost completely from scratch although in some parts utilizing code from another quite advanced tracker.
Right now, while it does have the basic functions of a tracker, it is still incomplete with some key features still in the development queue like search functions, torrent editing, usergroup permissions. Not to mention how messy the code is right now

The key features included but not limited are:

  • passkey system - resolves all the problems you'd be getting with the pesky ip validation by adding the users unique passkey dynamically to the torrent when the user downloads it, doesn't modify the original torrent
  • complete integration with vB - uses the vB user table, ovbiously; shows user stats and current activities on the tracker in memberinfo; when uploading a torrent, creates a thread in the specified forum with the torrent details page showing last x comments from the thread
  • most extensive faq page - although many trackers have quite the similar FAQ, it covers virtually all problems one could have...
  • wait times - can be enabled or disabled; a time calculated by the user's upload/download ratio for which the user will have to wait before he can download a new torrent
  • multitude of settings - a large amount of settings that are set in the AdminCP under $vboptions so they can be used anywhere else also
Like I mentioned before, it's not complete at all however. The main goal was to get it up and running as fast as possible so a multitude of tweaks are still required and some of the pages are not to most good to look at either.

So now if you haven't fallen asleep yet from reading my mile long post, here is the demo:

Any and I mean all suggestions/ideas are welcome.

I'm the admin/owner of the aforementioned site, so while it seems that no one's interested in this fully-integrated tracker, I just thought I'd add that AFusion has added the ability to rate torrents, as well as sorting torrents by seeds, leechers, comments, etc. Each day, the tracker looks more and more complete, yet surprisingly, only 1 person has commented about the tracker. Perhaps this may not be released publicly at this rate due to lack of interest, but we'll see how it goes.

I am suprised no one else responded,... there are a ton of posts asking for a tracker like this. I think if you did release it, it would be very well recieved by alot of folks.

edit: I was actually thinking about this earlier and I am not sure how compatible it would be with the system your making but I know some places are trying to get more seeders by syncing with other trackers via an xml/rss feed. I figured I'd mention it since it might be helpful to you in some way.

it's cool really, I am highly looking forward to this.

my suggestion is: make torrent files to be in categories, I know most they will use the search function tho.

oh I saw the search function isn't completed yet.

I really want this as a good torrent tracker for vb, if you need help I'll gladly help ya.

This sounds promising. We actually integrated a BNBT tracker into our site, however, it doesn't keep track of user stats at all which is something many of our users want. I'll be keeping an eye on this project.

If you click any of the category images (such as single, album, etc.), you can show a specific category

I would do a search for torrent on here and bump the discussion where it's heavily requested, there is a lot of talk about it.

yeah I noticed it after that post, but what I want is categories in the index page, structure is like vbulletin forum.

You should add a search button for all pages because users use the search most.
