    i haven't tried it, haven't even heard of it

    i'm using utorrent & qbittorrent almost on a daily basis, and i need to do some finetuning (enable freeleech when there's no freeleech :)) before i start any download
    this seems to be a very simple plugin - i like simple things most of the times - but it is just too simple for my needs

    there's not too much info about it tho
    can you adjust the upload speeds, modify trackers and such?

    no, nothing like that

    there are torrent clients (utorrent, qbittorrent, deluge etc.) which are capable of editing/deleting the torrent tracker including your passkey:

    1. start the download
    2. wait a bit until the seeders/peers joining in
    3. delete tracker, the tracker cannot count the downloaded/uploaded amount of data anymore
    4. profit

    use it wisely, some private trackers can detect this (torrentleech, revtt, thevault for example), oh and don't use the same username/password/email address on different trackers for obvious reason :)

    Cool. Thanks for the warnings. If The Vault can tell The Place probably can too. I'm not ready to lose my membership after getting it recently. Good to know though.
