    I would like to suggest a new feature on GFXPeers, where it is impossible to make a reseed request on a particular torrent, when:

    1) it is less than 3 months old
    2) has more than 5 seeds at time of request

    I have recently had two requests for the CGAXIS volume 19 torrent, from the same member.. and also one for the Grant Warwick Hard surface update.. and in fact I am seeing a lot of these type of requests recently. I think a lot of it might be that their download speeds are very slow, so they think having more seeds might help.. but that is NOT what re-seed requests are for... They should only be made if there are very few or no seeds.. this usually applies to old torrents, not those that have only been upload a few days ago

    Getting bloody annoying now, just got a re-seed request for a torrent that was only posted yesterday



    The member in question
    Code:
    You need to login or register to view this content.
    Can we please do something to prevent re-seed requests for any torrent that has more than 0 seeds. This torrent has 12 seeds as of me posting this comment and I am one them

    Might be that someone wants to be annoying since they now know you don't like this...
