Staff and administrators of any private BitTorrent tracker would hate to have inactive members and tracker collectors registered on their sites. Collectors are those who sign up on many torrent sites just because they can, with no real intentions to actually use the tracker. This is mostly done for the pure purpose of bragging online. When it comes to a community based tracker such as ScL, such users would be avoided like the plague. If you are a rather inactive member of ScL tracker – your account might just deleted in a dew days. The upcoming ‘cleanup’ will crack down hard on inactive members, including those who aren’t contributing to the forums and torrent comments.

The information about the upcoming cleanup was sent to all members via a mass PM two days ago. If you still didn’t have the time to read it, a part of it is quoted below:

In a week or so ScL will perform a massive user base clean up. If you have the following stats you will be DISABLED
0 - Download
0 - Upload
0 - Forums posts
0 - Torrent comments
Others close to these stats will be reviewed. It is noted that if you are disabled due to this cleanup help in our #support channel of IRC,
will NOT be given, as you already have been giving the opportunity to be a part of this community and be active.
With this cleanup we hope to improve the quality of our userbase. Cause we do not run this community for collectors and inactive members but for those who actually use it.

This is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t become a tracker collector. By signing up for a site that you do not intend to use, you are using up a slot in the tracker’s user limit and thus blocking another would be active user from joining the site. That is not very cool now, is it?

    Just a heads up.
    The tracker's name is in there, you should probably censor it.

    I'm on ScL quite often but rarely post in their Forums. Curious to see how this plays out.

    I edited it a few hours ago. Thanks for pointing it out.
