Title: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: Jarudin on April 14, 2016, 01:55:34 am
Hey guys,

We're working through some things.
Tracker is down for hopefully only a short while.
We'll let you know when it's back up.
The site should keep working.

-J

Duki3003 Update: The tracker is up as well.

---

Force Update: 17/04/2016

We are currently under attack by someone who obviously hates BakaBT.
Sofar he does 2 kind of attacks:
- Syn flood
- udp flood

But no worries, we are working on a long term solutions against this.

I think I got a few dozen to a hundred extra bonus points because of it. Do i get to keep them? Cuz I have no idea how many I actually earned from it, I recently started seeding a half dozen of them so I'm not even sure if they're actually unearned or not

Edit: never mind, I'm bad at math apparently. 6x24=~140 I got thrown off by the big increase and the fact that they're all Bonus Torrents made me jump to conclusions. I thought someone hacked BBT and set the bonus thresholds super high lol

Its happened in the past (excess bonus points I mean)

IIRC, at the time it was decided to let the users keep them.

I thought you can't get more than 10 bonus points per hour then how can you get 100+?
also if your torrent is not active (tracker offline) how are you getting bonus points?

is this a power user perk? -_-

No I'm just dumb, I downloaded them yesterday so it was like 20 hours of bonus points at 6/hr. I did get a few extra tho, I think. If the tracker is back up then i guess a lot of people still haven't started seeding again cuz I've still got 3 or 4 extra bonus torrents

Post by: Duki3003 on April 14, 2016, 03:02:10 pm
It kinda got complicated, one of our admins had something urgent come up, which is unfortunately unavoidable, and will be away for a few days.
So it will take a lot longer then we initially anticipated. The remaining admins will work on it in the meantime, but without his help it will not go as smoothly.

Currently ETA is anywhere within 24h to several days, depending on how things progress.

Title: Re: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: ckmishn on April 14, 2016, 11:11:52 pm
To think in the hours before the tracker went down I was worried because Dark Souls 3 kept crashing my system and getting all my hosted files back up was taking ~1 hour each time. It bothered me because I specifically downloaded every poorly seeded torrent I could find trying to keep that "torrents unavailable" number at 0 and every time my system crashed it would go to between 5 and 15 (the number of torrents I'm the only host of seems to vary a lot). I suppose if I were truly dedicated I'd get some sort of NAS system and never go down for more than a minute or two. ;)

Then the whole system goes down for a day and suddenly I start thinking it's not really that important that the least demanded .1% of torrents be constantly available. Really it's more like an OCD kind of thing for me I guess. :laugh:

Oooops, looks like even though the tracker is back up there's 1 torrent unseeded:

Using the bogus negative keyword search trick to make it show up (funny how it will say there's something unseeded then nothing shows up when you click the number ;) ) and it's "Strange Dawn Original Soundtrack [MP3]". Time to queue it up so that when it is re-seeded it stays that way. :)

A DOS, it was announced on twitter.

Is that why I got darn ReCapcha'd when I logged in today? >:(
I hate that... :( I mean:
Here's a set of images, which ones are signs, mountains, old people, things you collect in your spare time, car parts, bowls of soup.
Yeah, got that right kid, them is mountains but that ain't goan make me happy, not till I see yo ass stranglin yo monitah so Ima goan change them images and deselect them blocks fore ya can click Okay.
Oh, good job son, here's one last one: which are drinks? Well yeah I know ya might not know that glass fullah green muck is some hippy wheatgrass and rocket smoothie and like in yo small ass world ya goan think itta trick and that be a glass o da oooooze, but that there's 100% legit and you goan failed the question now so enjoy another hour of torment suckah!


....Yeah I went OTT, but I use Tor Browser (FF) and I hate 3rd generation captchas. I stopped using TPB for anime because of those captcha things. This _was_ one of the few sites I've always been able to enjoy without being harassed by a a set of ultra retarded questions before I can access it (emphasis on past tense). Sorry, just how I feel. Can't you make login.php available without the captcha? Maybe allow us to use our tracker key in the link to bypass it (like &key=XYZ). Maybe it's me, maybe I'm the problem. Maybe I gotta accept that times are changing and that one the the entire web's going to be a toxic torrent of captcha and prompts to agree to Ts&Cs before entering. If so, I guess it's time to amass a few exabytes of data in my underground bomb-shelter-and-data-center-slash-evil-lair, stock up on weapons and canned food, grow a long crazy beard and sit talking to myself about tthe end of times. Pfffff.

Since when does BBT request capchas while logging in?
Also, the capchas you're getting are old. New capchas are all just a checkbox 'I'm not a robot'

Solution: stop using Tor

Since I logged in today, sadly T_T obviously :P

So I've heard, many times from many people... I'm still waiting to see this new magick though *sigh*

Solution: stop using Tor

I can't. Tor is my ONLY browser. I do not use it to hide my IP from bakabt (as that'd be futile given the tracker sees it), but I use it to prevent being tracked which is my little protest against the web today. Also, I do access sites which may be illegal in certain countries and it's easier to just not bother finding out everytime I trvel where I can/cannot go. Yes, how spank-worthy :O
In any case, why should I be forced to specially install a browser to access a site? I shouldn't. Nor should the site have an obligation to accommodate me. I was just voicing my opinion. More of an anti-captcha rant. I do this on most forums given the smallest opening XD

tracker down again ?!! :'( :'(

Yep, all the torrents are marked bonus torrents and what I'm seeding and what the site says I'm seeding are completely different.
Title: Re: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: Duki3003 on April 17, 2016, 05:35:22 pm
We don't use captchas, but CloudFlare does.
TOR users are classified as unsafe by CloudFlare, so you'll have to get used to them, especially while we're under attack.

The tracker is currently disabled, that's why you're seeing discrepancies, but are working on a long term solution.

@Roger3p: Using TOR-browser to prevent getting tracked and to protest against the modern web, is like protesting against NSA and living at their HQ. Or protesting against McDonalds and eating there every day.
You know everyone can host a TOR-node, right? So, uhh, you know, there are nodes hosted by the FBI or the NSA eg.
Or, that the "hackergroup" LizardSquad also have over 3000 nodes? I mean, LS is that group that is attacking BattleNet, PSN and XBL. Poor gamers that havnt done anything to anyne. I dont think you can trust them. :P

Maybe it would be better to switch to Chrome or Firefox and use some plugins like any adblocker, ScriptNo / NoScript, Ghostery, the usual stuff... In the end it doesnt protect your privacy neither, but at least you will have your internetspeed back without blocking you out of BBT and without telling "everyone" what youre doing directly. :p

Sorry for blowing up your hopes and dreams.

Yeah, I know anyone can host a node and I'm not concerned so much with intelligence agencies and law enforcement than I am with organizations like FB, MS, Google & co.
Your plugin suggestion may help to a point (Tor Browser has built-in NoScript) but it doesn't help me when I'm traveling. Also, Tor Browser seems a little less bloated from Firefox (from which it's built) so for me it actually runs better than a modern FF build (perhaps the code is stripped of "features").. I will still take yours (and everyone else's) suggestions under advisement.

And don't worry, you haven't blown up my hopes and dreams.
A) I never believed I was free because none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they're free. I'm not tryning win a war, I'm just refusing to take it lying down.
B) My hopes and dreams have nothing to do with the wired (which is just a place for me to grab entertainment). My hopes and dreams don't exist. I'm empty. Like a bargain bin at a 2nd hand clothing store in the slums. If I did have hopes, they'd be to become a magic unicorn and spread love all over fairy land if I had dreams they'd be about marrying creapy goth lolis ;D

I am having this problem too, all my BakaBT torrents are disconnected right now because of this annoying denial of service attack. Usually when the tracker is down I check in on the website and often it is down too. I am glad at least the website is still up. Anti-P2P people who do attacks like this really piss me off. If only we had Battle Programmer Shirase to help us out. Too bad he got canceled too early to be of much use.

Title: Re: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: Roger3p on April 18, 2016, 11:19:10 am
If you ask me, I'd say the person(s) responsible for the attack could be the persons selling the solution.... But that's paranoid right? So far as Japan's moves against piracy go, doubt it's that. Side-note: Japan should quit whining about piracy because if it wasn't for fansubbers, anime would still be practically unheard of in the west. You could probably count on one or two hands the anime series that were dubbed and licensed out here before the fansubbing scene.

But yeah, this attack's really annoying. It's screwing it up for everyone and I don't see the point/motivation. Like wtf did/COULD this community do to piss anyone off? Unless some 12 year olds discovered a how-to guide and picked a random target and now they can sit around circle-jerking about how they are t3h 1337 h4xxors, haar, haar.

Without upgrading from Opera 12, it is unlikely that there is a solution.
It has been reported that sites that use CloudFlare stop working on Opera 12, and other than upgrading no other solution was presented.

I use WebIRC
Like KiwiIRC or mibbit? I use irc.lc (http://irc.lc/)
If you wanna log chat sessions, use a desktop client like HEXchat and mIRC/AdiIRC

Tracker stats still aren't reporting back right. I shut down my client earlier today and it's showing ~40 active. At least I got some connections earlier though.

I hope you have updated tracker and all torrents show 'working' status

Nice ava on tracker profile btw :)

Probably need to use a gaming dedi server to host the tracker and the site.

Gaming servers being known for being DDOSed by script kiddies.

It's never that easy. You can always stop that with netfilter/iptables. Anyway, firewalls would that too.

OVH's gaming servers provide protection against TCP syn attacks.

Until it eats up the networks bandwidth. If that happens even if your router mitigates the attack the server wont be able to communicate with the clients... ::)

The admins are currently working in the background. The tracker can be offline every now and then.

As long as no one is messing with BBT, we wouldn't mind the tracker status ;D
Title: Re: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: Krudda on April 24, 2016, 11:15:55 pm
BBT keeps being "unresponsive" "the server cannot be contacted" "Error 502" "Cloudfare cannot be reached"
Stuff like that, every few minutes. Another attack? or Duki unplugging and re-plugging the wires?
Title: Re: Tracker is down for maintanance
Post by: Zaraki on April 24, 2016, 11:42:22 pm
The server is currently undergoing a software upgrade/switch to make BBT perform more efficiently. This is the reason for time outs, etc. Please be patient for a few more hours.

The active / inactive torrents sections on my user page are currently displaying incorrect info. Only about a tenth of my currently active torrents are shown as active.

I assume that this is a result of the difficulties with the tracker, and I'm only making a note of this because this seems odd.

I've checked that I am uploading on at least two of the torrents that are currently marked as inactive. I'd expect that a malfunctioning tracker might fail to register all activity for a while, but to correctly register some torrents and not others - and consistently the same ones when I restart my torrent client (Transmission 2.8.4 - not the newest version, but the newest one which works with my OS) - seems, as I said, odd.

It's happening to me too, maybe just like how every torrent separately take time to update its stats, I believe this problem is somewhat like that, maybe if we sit patient, everything will be fine

It kinda sucks... seeding bonus torrents but not getting bonus points
and who knows whether all our seeding action will eventually get tracked or not

How many torrents do you have that aren't registering properly? Do you notice any patterns in which ones do and which ones don't? (I didn't.)

I upload continuously, and I've tried (mostly successfully) to set up my tormenting computers to recover after a power failure. Slow updating would only explain this problem if the last update for most torrents took place during one that I didn't notice - which is entirely possible, but not likely.

I've no doubt that this will be fixed in good time.

I have, probably has to do with the Tracker Maintenance, for me it's affecting all trackers.

Anyways BBT is showing 0 anonymous seeders so maybe public torrents are not gonna work for a while
Just hang in there :)

oh my.. all my torrents are inactive while I'm uploading ~1.1MB/s. Though really, I feel more for the people with data caps who wasted what little bandwidth they had for nothing. My own ratio isnt gonna be an issue any time soon.

I cant help but wonder if this is the same person or group who attacked Nyaa/Commie and friends recently. Probably is

EDIT: Weird, they still show as A[ctive] in the banner's username dropdown menu
