First time seeder here, so I need some help. I'm trying to upload Pearl Jam's show from 7/19/13 at Wrigley Field, and I can't get my torrent file to upload when creating a new thread.

As I was going through the upload, I realized that the original file set only had an md5 checksum but not ffp or st5, so I had to create a new torrent file once i added the FLAC fingerprints. I never actually submitted the original torrent file, but did the creation of multiple torrent files interfere somehow?

Can someone help out here? Thanks in advance.

what is the error message you get when trying to upload?

Here's what the error says when I try to attach my updated torrent file to the "Upload Show" page:

"Upload of file failed. If this is a torrent upload failure, see list of common causes on the Upload Page."

I've checked the announce URL of the torrent file by opening in a text editor, and it appears to be correct. Here's what the top line of the torrent file says:

d8:announce56:http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/tracker/announce.php10:created

Edit - The URL above is automatically shortened, but it's not shortened in the torrent file.

Also, I'm using uTorrent on a Mac to create the torrent if that helps at all.

Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks!

The torrent file got uploaded, but you didn't submit the thread, so things got messed up. I have removed the torrent file so you may try again.

That did the trick - thanks for the help!
