Some of you may have noted a few changes around the place here at FLO. I'll break down the changes for you all so we are all on the same page here. First up is one of the more exciting announcements.

Site Wide 2x Upload

Yes, you read correctly. The lovely FLO Admins have turned on 2x upload site wide! What this means for you is that when you are uploading here on FLO you will receive 2x the upload.

For example, Johnny has a 1GB file that he has uploaded to FLO. Now Sally downloads that file from Johnny. Instead of Johnny getting 1GB upload he will actually get 2GB upload! As stated above, this has now been turned on and there is currently no plan in the foreseeable future to turn it off.

IRC Server

I am happy to announce that FLO now has it's own IRC server up and running! We are constantly working on this server so will be adding new features all the time. Make sure you stop by and join in the conversation!

For those that have an IRC client the connection details are below. For those that don't or don't want to install one, never fear - FLO has your back. Simply click on the IRC link in the top menu to be taken to the web based IRC!

IRC Server:
Port: 6667 (6697 for SSL)
Channels: #FLO, #Announce, #Support

Special IRC Commands:
!user - Display your user account information on FLO (user class, ratio, uploaded, downloaded)

Featured Torrents

As you will notice there is a new addition to the main page. There is now a Featured Torrent section on the right hand side of the main page. Occasional a member of the FLO team will mark a torrent as featured to highlight what we believe is a "must have" torrent.

Other News

Now that 2x upload has been turned on it will be much easier for you earn credits and build a good ratio on FLO. This will also make earning credits to spend in the credit store much easier for you.

We have also adjusted the items in the credit store. You can now purchase upload credits! This is in addition to being able to purchase download reducers. We here at FLO are all about giving our users more options to keep their ratio healthy!

That's about all the latest news for now! Thank you all for taking the time to read and we hope you enjoy the latest additions to FLO. Feel free to discuss this news over at the forums. As always, stay tuned; there will be more coming!
