View Full Version : invalid passkey error?

2006-05-26, 06:15 PM
I am trying to reseed something I just downloaded, but I get an invalid passkey error. It was uploading, but it was not changing my ratio. When I stopped the upload it gave me this errror when I tried to start it up again. I want to keep seeding my file, but I am not sure why I keep getting this message.

There is a big notice on the top of all the forums and the homepage about this. We changed over to a passkey system on Wednesday. You need to redownload the torrent file in order to start you upload/download correctly (meaning, to get any stats since Wednesday).

Thanks! Sorry for the mistake.

Hey Lynne you're taking this stuff very well. On most forums I've been on in the past; if there is a question repeated as often as this by people who clearly don't search before they ask, the members will be shouting at them. But you manage to keep your cool and simply redirect them.

Nice doing :)

Haha! I knew people wouldn't see the messages. I tried to put them up all over, but I know how people are. And, if I start to post something rude, I usually just delete it. And, besides, the first day I was too frazzled trying to figure out the info_hash problem and so I wasn't really around alot.

Now, if these people post these sort of messages in The Lounge, I won't be held responsible for what happens to them. :D
