Im all for more info and easy simple layout too, i liked the version we had for a few months before this that was really nice with lots of stats and nice layout. It also showed who had downloaded and who was seeding, which makes it easy to ask someone for a seed if you can see who has downloaded it previously, also makes it easier top find people who are downloading and then removing it straight from there tracker. The one problem as you mentioned though is going to be donations. Nothing nice comes for free.
I personally don't like the really dark websites. I don't need and blacked out computer screen to prove my inner punx.
I have now got internet hooked up and have gone through and started seeding some of my old torrents, If there is anything extra you want or something i am not seeding please send me a message!
