In an effort to boost productivity on Sundays worldwide, I’ve decided to start posting the top torrents for the “laziest” day of the week.
The findings can give you an idea of what’s available out there and provide you with a guide as to what too look for and what to download, hopefully helping people pass the time and fully enjoy a “lazy” Sunday.
Though some dispute the findings of Infofilter, calling into question the way they achieve their results, the stats are decent enough to get an idea of what torrents are currently in demand.
From the site:
How are your statistics compiled?
Statistics of each torrent in our database are gathered once per day. Stats are compiled from each of trackers associated with a particular torrent (many torrents are associated with multiple trackers).
What does the “Todays Traders” number represent?
How are your charts generated?
The top charts are generated every morning based on the stats gathered up until that point.
Why does last night’s [insert popular TV show] not appear in the top TV chart?
Our charts are based on a snapshot of a single point in time for each torrent, because of this larger files (i.e. complete seasons) will show up higher in the rankings for the simple reason that users downloading these torrents have to be connected longer.
Some of your stats don’t seem to make sense?
There is a problem of trackers misreporting their statistics. This is either due to a misconfigured or erroneous tracker or because int-piracy firms are flooding the tracker with bogus peers. We have found these situations to be a small but visible percent of our top charts.
Now here’s a look at the charts for November 19th, 2006:
TOP 25 VIDEO TORRENTS
TOP 25 TV TORRENTS
TOP 25 MUSIC TORRENTS
TOP 25 GAME TORRENTS
Stay tuned to the charts as “screener” season is fast approaching. Most of of you know what I’m talking about I’m sure, so stay tuned and watch for them to make the charts if you aren’t able to find them on your own already.
