I am assuming that there is no longer a passkey when we download the new torrent from the server? I am never shown as seeding any torrents now.

Correct, there are no passkeys.

In order to help you I need precise information. Which torrents are you not shown as seeding? Are you referring to the list on this page, or maybe this page, or possibly your bittorrent client?

Yes my account page shows that I uploaded the torrents but that I have no active transfers which I have 3 active at this time.It could be that I am using a remote server and not the same ip that is downloading the torrent.

That is because TT does not talk to opentracker (the 6969 tracker). Opentracker is an anonymous tracker. All it tracks is IPs and ports. The IPs are not and will not be associated with tracker accounts.

I think that we will need the option to ask for a reseed on all the old torrents that were created with http://concen.org/announce.

e.g. I was lucky enough to get one seed through DHT on this one http://concen.org/tracker/torrents-details.php?id=28788 but as it stands now, many or most of them are useless.

I'm still seeding a couple of old torrents myself. Using utorrent, if I still have the green arrow...then the older torrent should still be good yet using the new announce...right?

And if not, why not just add the new tracker announce to the old torrent? Or does the directory also need to also reflect the new tracker announce?

I have been trying to write some software which will allow both the old and new seeders to appear in the swarm, but I'm starting to think it's a waste of time anyway.

I'll be making an announcement soon asking all the heavy seeders to re-download their torrents. That's basically the easiest solution in the long term, despite the short term pain...

You're still able to seed the torrent using the old tracker, but anyone downloading the torrent now will be using the new tracker, so you'll never have peers. If nobody is leeching ATM, just re-download the torrent files. If they are leeching, just add the new announces to the tracker list.

Uh oh, I'm replying with myself. I think the Catholics frown on that... will I go blind or grow (more) hair on the palms of my hands?

I have managed to implement a solution whereby clients that announce to http://concen.org/announce automatically get redirected to http://concen.org:6969/announce

Due to my dedication to the members of ConCen coupled with my indisputable programming genius, I've managed to configure the server so it is no longer necessary for anybody to re-download torrent files!

The man hours I have saved by doing this probably would number in the thousands assuming all the seeders re-downloaded their torrents, the vast majority of whom would not. That would mean any torrent seeded by clients using the old announce (almost all the torrents older than a month) would be orphaned. Now the thousands of active torrents are not orphaned. In fact they are turbocharged because opentracker can keep up with the load, putting less strain on the server AND your bittorrent clients!

For those curious as to how I did it, behold the following:

Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(passkey=.*?&)(.*)$
RewriteRule . %{REQUEST_URI}?%2
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /(announce|scrape)
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT}  !^6969$
RewriteRule (.*) http://concen.org:6969$1 [NE,L]

I thought it was pretty straightforward to do, but it wasn't working. Opentracker was saying "Invalid Request". After ~ 8 hours of hair pulling, screaming and beating up random people, I figured out that I needed to add the NE flag to the final RewriteRule.

So there you have it. I hope all you lazy ungrateful non donating bastards appreciate all the shit I pull to keep the user experience as nice as possible despite your complete lack of caring...

After reading the code I have no clue what you did, BUT I certainly appreciate you taking the time and effort to keep the user experience as nice as possible despite our perceived complete lack of caring!

You rock. That's how you roll.
