This has probably been mentioned here before but here it goes again.

Can we have a script that obtains the Ratio(up/down) from the users client and accordingly set options that if the users UP limit is below a certain amount, the users gets a time period which can be set in hours/days to increase their upload ratio and until then such users should not be able to download from anyone or search anything. IF their ratio is not met in the set time period then they will be banned.
This is something similar to what torrents have.

I know that this ratio can be faked too if wanted, but I know the users on my hub are not aware of that.

I ask the scripting Gods to please consider my request if possible.

Thank you.

Hub can't in any way get any info related on user transfers, that mean hub don't know what users downloading or uploading. No file names, no file sizes, nothing about how much data was transfered  ::)

Thanks for the quick reply. So is there any other way that I can know who the leechers are and block them from downloading/searching anything.

EDIT: Maybe if I can limit the downloads for a particular profile Eg. 10gb/day for registered users

No you can't because hub don't have and can't get that info from client!
