Hi gang... I noticed that this older post went from "abandoned" to "inactive"...http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=25266

I want to try to reseed this, but I did not keep the m3u file included in the original fileset. For this reason I could not give 100% when this was orphaned a few weeks ago. About 6 leechers were able to finish to 99% with me seeding, but I believe it went inactive before any of them were able to complete.

I want to try a new upload. Is it unacceptable for me to do this?

It is my first attempt to upload a show. Please advise me if this is a poor candidate for me to learn on due to the fact that I tossed the m3u file.

Thanks (in advance)

An m3u file is not necessary for an upload. As long as you have the original flac/shn files and a text file and a fingerprint/checksum file, you should be fine. Just make a new torrent with those files and upload it using the upload page and you should be fine.

Thanks! Will those who were stuck before now be able to complete?

Yeah, if you made a new torrent with just those files. If they hop onto the new torrent then there bt client should verify the files and quickly go to 100%.
