    Same thing happened to me. The admin that I am dealing with is called Synop and I dontaed USD20. When I ask him to give me the credit he keeps telling me to post the invoice in the chat thread but there is no way to post images from your computer in the thread.

    Btw How did you post that screen grab into the thread? All i get us the option to add a url not upload from my computer.

    NOTE: Nobody gets upgraded for donating.. Your ratio is your ratio, it doesn't get increased if you donate to the site.. All it means is you are helping to keep the site open, so you can upload and seed stuff you have downloaded. Plain and simple.

    Donations don't change you status.

    So why is this Admin posting me this.....

    if your Ratio goes down , System automatically disable downloading torrent,
    Please seed always what you download ,

    Make Donation today, We can upgrade ratio and Resume Download.
    After Donation, send PayPal transaction ID Here...,
    Click this link for donate : https://forum.gfxdomain.net/HELP/

    For 10 USD you will Get Ratio 1.0
    15 USD = Ratio 1.5
    20 USD = Ratio 2.5
    30 USD = Ratio 3.5
    50 USD = Ratio 6.5
    75 USD = Ratio 10.5
    100 USD = Download UNLIMITED for one Year ( Recommended)

    Every month, Its very hard to get donation for our servers cost.
    So we planned ratio for donation.. Thank you for understanding…

    Hi Synop, I am struggling to see how one uploads an image on this interface.?

    The "insert image" button asks for a url so I am unable to upload from my computer.

    Well I guess this change in tack is the reason GFXPeers is not the place it used to be. Oh well I can't blame them for encouraging donations, by offering to boost your ratio, depending on the amount you donate, but for me, the whole site is just not what it once was, way too many rubbish uploads and countless duplicates, despite the warning that anyone posting duplicates, will be banned.

    I say the way to go, would be to simply block anyone that has a ratio below that required for more than a month, unless they donate to increase said ratio. If however they don't donate, within a month, then they lose their account permanently...

    So that way you would have two choices

    Keep grabbing stuff and not seeding it back, meaning you have to donate or lose your account

    OR keep your ratio up, seed stuff and only upload stuff that doesn't break the rules

    Not sure what country you are in but i presume that you have a good internet connection. Dont forget that many places around the world dont have that luxury. I live in Africa and my internet is poor. I struggle to get people to leech from me because my transfer speeds are really slow and it will default to other seeders with faster connection. I spoke to a guy from Kenya recently who is having the same issue and his ratio is also very poor and is unable to improve it. If we upload torrents we only benefit from for the intial upload and thereafter other seeders will take priorities over ours and we are aunable to get more uploading credit. On top of that most of us here have monthly data limits. Mine is 35GB which i pay USD80/month for. Unlimited connections here are over USD1000 a month. Thats why to me they should weight your ratio on seeding not uploads. If you seed a torrent , just because you have a bad internet connection, you should still get some credit for that. I know other torrent sites that have points system where you accumilate points for seeding which you can cash in for upload credit. This also keeps less popular torrents available as people will leave them seeding for points rather than refile or delete them from their system.

    Just my perspective as a guy living in the middle of nowhere who would like to contribute to the community here.

    Use an image sharing site, click on insert image and paste that link into the box.

    I use https://postimages.org/

    Hi everybody! is this for real? there are other torrent communities/trackers where you can pay to get a higer ratio or instead a certain amount of Bytes you can Freeleech. For long I hoped GFXPeers would do something like that. Why? simple : Not everyone have a high speed internet uploading new content for those people will not raise the ratio that much because people will mostly download the content from other peers (who downloaded the content from you) with a higher upload speed and those other peers will get a greater amount of Bytes uploaded and therefore an even higher ratio.

    The option to pay to get freeleech (or a certain amount of bytes to download) will therefore allow those who pay to download even more with no risks of getting banned. And gives the people a third option to the two mentioned by Andy47:

    Which is the ability to become the ultimate Seeder. I remember that at some point I had the power user rank, I lost it a while after. Now I know that with the ability to download more content I will have the ability to seed a wider range of content and become an "Ultimate Power User" if there is such a rank!

    I am not afraid of being banned for having a low ratio. I am afraid of being a nobody!

    I have 3 friends who donated 1 week ago to get the Ratio back, and so far nothing. There was a warning that if you donate $ 10 you get 1 Ratio.

    Hi, I received an email from an administrator telling me that by donating an amount my ratio will increase. It's been a few weeks and my ratio hasn't increased. Are they cheating us?

    I donated too but my ratio didn't improve... On the other hand I didn't upload my transaction somewhere. Νο one told me too. I just donated because I found some stuff that they were very useful and I appreciated it a lot. Of it would be nice to see my ratio up again. :)
    I don't think the are cheating us. This is a great place.
    Maybe they need some more time to organise things.
