View Full Version : I've got an idea....

....that maybe some of you need a lesson in manners....

before I get started, understand that I know my ratio is not the greatest (.43) but I decided to do something about that...

...which is what got me to despise so many of the people in this community. I decided to upload some of my 20+ Pearl Jam vid masters here on TTD. Thought it would be a nice gesture and it might stop Lou from selling my vids at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department. I up'd my Pearl Jam College Park master to the exact specifications that the TTD has put fourth only to get countless PM's from people bitching that my bitrates were too slow, I need to do this, I need to do that. I also specifically asked that no one PM me asking what other masters I have. I did this because I work 80 freakin hours a week. Guess what? The first 4 PM's I got after posting were from the same asshole bugging me to find out what else I had. I can live with that to an extent....the same guy PM's me to let me know what an asshole I am for not telling him.

For some of us this shit isn't our whole lives. I went out of my way to up this shit. All I thought I might get was a few thank you's and I wasn't even worried about that. I got way more than I bargained for.

This shit is annoying. I was all set to up 3 more PJ masters this weekend. I'll pass. Maybe I'll up them on Pirate Bay or Mininova or something.

Certainly won't be here.

Posts removed, this isn't The Lounge guys!

Did you know that you may set it up so you may only receive PMs from Mods and users in your Contacts List? User CP > Edit Options > click on Receive Private Messages only from Contacts and Moderators . That should stop the unsolicited PMs. You may want to also turn off Visitor Messages from users not on your contact list also. See this thread for other options regarding privacy - New TTD Features (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=63480)

Regarding bitrates and such..... sometimes it may help to look at some PMs as users trying to be helpful. If you are new to authoring (sorry if you aren't, I don't know you), then you may want to try to look at those PMs as users trying to help you get the most out of your video transfers. I know sometimes people come across as seeming to be demanding, but oftentimes they are just trying to help you make great videos.
