Maybe it's only me, but I do compare different releases to pick the best one. So it happens that a file gets downloaded just to be deleted because the quality is worse than what you already have.

So why not add a short (1min) preview? It's really simple with ffmpeg and could help to save traffic. Not for every file though; maybe just for the first episode or >200MB files / OVAs.

ffmpeg -i "ova.mkv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -t 60 'ova_preview.mkv"

For a ~450MB file, this creates a 3-4MB preview (video, audio and subs intact).
