Today we have an announcement to make and most of you will not approve of this, regardless we will try and provide you as much detail as possible to show our point.
TorrentBD.com is the currently one of two truly online torrent tracker at the moment. By online, we mean that it is hosted on a foreign country by a professional hosting company, on a dedicated 100Mbps backbone. This is one the biggest reasons why some of the best uploaders are choosing TBD as their primary tracker.
You might have guessed this by now, TBD is now in need of your help. The server costs will soon become too much to bear us. However we have no intention of profiting from this, all we want is to keep the server running therefore we have no problems disclosing our expenses to you.
You can already see that users are increasing day by day thereby also increasing the traffic of host. So we ( some users and admins ) decided to buy a new bigger server so that site loads faster regardless the amount of users online, other uses are mentioned below.
Additional charges include:
1) 25% Tax
2) 25USD Bank Transfer Fee
3) 20USD Server Processing Fee
4) Server rate mentioned in the image is after a 20% discount, so normally its higher
As you can see, it is an annual expense. So as soon as the needed amount is reached, we will close off donations and move any excess amounts into the next billing cycle. We have set up some means of payments for you such as: paypal, bank transfer(DBBL). And if you wish to contribute to us in any other way then please feel free to contact us. Every amount helps, no matter how small.
I know TBD has had downtime issues in the past, but those were completely out of our control, all we could do is notify our host, but even then our uploaders are still with us. We have switched to a better host to further minimize potential downtimes.
Why support TBD?
We do not limit access to specific ISPs, as long as you and your friends are BDIX connected you will enjoy our services.
We are a family-friendly site, you do not need to browse in private to view the site, or feel afraid to recommend us to your family and friends. Offensive content will always be removed.
We are home to some of the best uploaders in the country. It is the uploaders that run a tracker, not its server, not its admins. And we have big plans to make their stay in TBD as comfortable as possible. Lets just say the site will be more uploader-friendly in the near future.
So please guys, support us, we are here to stay.
Donations will get you:
Donation status recognition
Half download count for a specific period of time, depending on how much you donate
Access to exclusive features mentioned below.
What will we do with the money?
TBD has big plans for the immediate feature. We have already worked out comprehensive plans for Rapidleech scripts and seedbox services, which will be available to donators only.
We will use these features to further boost activity in our site. TBD will have a dedicated seed box for its own use. For instance, weekly episodes will be uploaded directly to TBDs UK server, and if all of you download together, then the overall download time will be significantly reduce.
Further details of the above mentioned services will be greatly detailed after we are done with our upgrades. Rest assured, the donations will be used as efficiently as possible, and you will surely be rewarded for it.
