Hi family,

A recent HelpDesk request made me realize how valuable this information may be to all our members.

Q:  I have noticed some users "hide" their profile details and download information.  How do I do this?
A:  This is available to Power Users from their Profile.

Power Users need to qualify AUTOMATICALLY (no request required -- happens automatically):
  • Length of membership here > 1 month
  • Upload amount (whether simply seeding and/or from new torrents) > 40 GB
  • Ratio > 1.05 (consistently, as Power User status may continue to be added and removed automatically as their ratio changes)

Power Users benefits:
  • More downloads available (DVD-R torrents)
  • Direct ability to search for DVD duplicates and easily upload to this Category 1
  • Profile security (if desired) -- see screen shot below
  • Invites -- originally set to 4 -- this allows you to INVITE up to four friends to this site -- each invite that actually joins GT.ru gains you 2 GB of "virtual" upload traffic which immediately improves your ratio


1  Regular members MAY upload new torrents into the DVD-R category.  Because regular members cannot search in advance for duplicates, this requires the extra step of submitting a HelpDesk request for Staff to search for any duplicate. A member finding a DVD-R upload significantly boosts their ratio because that upload is often 3 or 4 GB instead of a 300 MB to 1.2 GB upload.

This was very helpful. I've been wondering about power user status and what it actually does, thanks.

Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. I went to exchange some bonus points for an invite and found that this is only available to power users. Now I see why.... even though I'm above the minimum share ratio I'm not above that 1.05 threshold.

Is power users thing of the past? I don't recall being promoted...
