#4733 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Ability to set default tracker for torrent creation

Reported by: nodiscc Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.33+
Severity: Trivial Keywords: default tracker
Cc: nodiscc@…

Description

We could have a default tracker preset in the "New Torrent" dialog. This would make torrent creation much easier, no need to go find and copy-paste the tracker's url from the web. I think a good default would be

udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80

(read more about it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openbittorrent)

Eventually this default setting could be changed in the preferences dialog/file.

Please tell what you think about this suggestion.

Cheers

What client is this? The Mac client already saves the tracker list each time it's used.

Hello, forgot to say I'm using transmission 2.33-2 on Debian testing (wheezy) - GTK interface. I attached a screenshot of the dialog i'm talking about (the "New Torrent" creation dialog box).

The previously used trackers are not remembered for me.

The primary question was: what about making udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80 the default (prefilled) tracker in transmission?

Thanks in advance

Replying to livings124:

A default tracker won't be added.

thanks for your quick reply.

This suggestion is totally related, so I prefer reopening the ticket instead of creating a new one: what about adding a setting for this, and an entry in the preferences dialog, like "Use these trackers on torrent creation:" and a text box to set a list of trackers?

This would allow users not having to remind/copypaste tracker addresses for each torrent they release (even more boring if they use several trackers).

If what you meant in comment 1 is that previous trackers are remembered in the Mac client, this is not the case in the Linux client (at least for me, 2.33-2).

Adding really specific options that most users wouldn't care about isn't the right track. I would recommend opening a new ticket to cover remembering previous trackers.
