Question Got 3 questions....

I am new at this torrent file stuff. I normally have used winmx for many years now.
My questions are, i have downloaded a torrent file on another site and i was wondering, it seems like if i want to upload the torrent say on here or any other site i have to make a new .torrent file instead of just uploading the .torrent file i have already downloaded? And if so, how does the trackers combine the different .torrent files (since they would be named differently) so you get multiple downloads from different trackers/.torrents?

Now this 3rd question is directed to TTD site. Now this video file i have downloaded, it is an .avi file. I haven't been able to find it on any of the other torrent sites around. So it maybe the only source there is or at least available as of now and i would like to share it on here, and is it cool to do this? I just don't want to put all the effort into this and get it removed and told it wasn't good enough or whatever. The quality is decent, and i think some folks on here would enjoy them.

Yes, do read the FAQS for all your future upload help.

And please don't upload the file in question. AVI's are not allowed.

4 2011 KBS left.
And 6 2009 and 2 2010 Nemesis too.

Re: Got 3 questions....

The reason you need to make a new torrent file is because the torrent file contains information about what tracker the torrent is located on. The torrent file must be associated with a tracker in order to connect the users who want the show.

^^ Good answers above also.
