5 DVD torrent

I have a 5 DVD event to share. I know the content is legit & allowed - not my question.
Are users OK with a 5 DVD download in 1 single torrent? I would kinda prefer it as a single download but is there an etiquette thing here? Is it too much?

Re: 5 DVD torrent

Please seed all 5 discs at once. If a user can't or doesn't want to download that much at once, they can choose which files to grab individually.

Re: 5 DVD torrent

Allow me to answer my own question in case someone doesn't agree. This is from the TTD FAQ. I went there for other info but found the answer to me original question:

4. All torrents must contain a complete seed. Spanning a single set over multiple seeds is not permitted.
To eliminate confusion, all torrents uploaded must be as a complete set. This means that two disc sets must be seeded together. Reseeds must contain the complete material, not split across multiple seeds. If a certain "fixed" track is posted, the seed must contain the entire "fixed" set with the changed material included. If peers have already completed much of the set, then they can connect to the complete torrent and it will check the files that are already complete and only re-download the changed tracks. To keep the tracker clean and so that people don't have to continually check back for fixes or the completion of set, everything must be seeded as a complete torrent the first time. If you attempt to post single "fixed" tracks or multi-disc sets in parts, your thread will be removed and you will be asked to make a complete seed.

Aye.

The only logical exception coming into my mind - if you have a bundle of discs of particular event recorded and you post each artist/performer separately. I guess there would be no objection to that at all.
