View Full Version : Question about re-seeding

2005-05-13, 08:56 AM
Hello people,
Someone requested a reseed of the Neil Young concert boot "Citizen Kane jr. Blues". It's been inactive for some time now. I can reseed it, no problem, I even have the original torrent file. But the problem is, I don't think it included that shntool fingerprint thingy.


Is it okay to seed it in the way it was in the original seed?

Cheers and thanks!

Its really easy to make an .st5 these days...

if you're on mac use a program called xAct.

if you need more help just ask!

Okay, then I`ll make an .st5 to go with the reseed. With xAct it seems pretty much self-explanatory.

My question was really a bit more general though. It was something along the lines of: when a shn seed without an .st5 has been seeded on this site once already, do I need to make an .st5 for a simple reseed when the original seeder didn`t have to?

But as I said, I will make one and reseed.
Thanks again, Five!

let's just say that we strongly prefer .st5 checksums posted with SHN and APE sets when they're seeded.

you're welcome!

Since no one in the reseed announce thread has complained yet...


... I guess I did it the right way! :)

Thanks for all the help, Five!
