RE: umgi (updated results

Here are updated results. This time we're including both top 10 and top
15.

The results didn't change much overnight because auto-posting did not
become active for this until this morning.

 

Based on top 10, the only 2 sites we're doing well on are Bitenova and
Torrentportal. Once auto-posting kicks in, which should be within a
couple hours, we can expect torrentspy, isohunt, and torrentbox's
numbers to increase, but only for the top 10.

 

We have the DL tests in progress to see how interdiction is working. It
shouldn't be much different than yesterday where we see inconsistent
results but usually block around 50-80% of the downloads.

 

Ebert, go ahead send Randy a summary of what to tell Neil based on these
results.

Piratebay, mininove, etc. Will depend entirely on interdiction. Tabish
let's start a download test on those sites since interdiction should be
on and see what it looks like in 2 hours.

We can wait a couple hours if you think it will get better. What is your
diagnosis?

 

What about pirate bay and other notables missing?

Neil is asking for this now, let's give him amy winehouse on the sites
I listed below. We need to make sure they are usiny utorrent since our
decoys are not as strong as they could be. If you can influence the
methodology have them download the top 15 with a short time frame like 2
hours.

The autoposter will cover the first 4 sites below and a few other sites,
but not ones I'd suggest to test at this time. I'd also consider adding
the second group based on current decoys + interdiction, we can boost
the numbers on those 3 if we have to manually. The autoposter will run
tonight so we should do a download test tomorrow and see if we're
getting good interdiction numbers then give it to them.

Ok, we'll get autoposting going on it today which should improve the
decoy numbers, with interdiction working well when it hits we should be
able to get a decent demo with minimum effort.

Here's how we're doing on Amy Winehouse. There were only 4 unique hashes
total from the top 15 of all these sites that were not in the
interdiction system. We just added those 4 right now, so we'll have 100%
interdiction presence within an hour.

 

 

 

The decoy presence is not that great (see attached for details)...but I
don't think it'll be much better for any other UMG project right now.

 

 

 

Once you guys review these results, we can decide to do Amy Winehouse or
we can try to find a less popular project and try to get protection
higher for that. In my opinion, this would look more impressive since
its semi-decent results and she's really popular...she's currently
ranked 10 on Billboard top 200. Last week she was #6.

We can still use the projects as a demo if we will do well on them
right?

Both of the German projects we have active are "monitor only", and are
not supposed to have BT services.

 

 

 

Nylon - 10 Lieder Uber Liebe

 

TOCOTRONIC-KAPITULATION

 

 

 

So I guess that leaves Amy Winehouse as our project.
