Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

I think there really ought to be a reason posted about why a torrent is pulled - so that people can see them and know the mistakes / errors / ??? and learn from them... Sometimes there is a notice about what was "wrong" with a pulled torrent, but a lot of them seem to not have this. What's the point of showing things that aren't here if there's no lesson to be learned from them?

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

we usually make a note in the thread.


If there isn't one, it has usually been discussed with the seeder (most of our pulls % comes from seeders asking their own torrents to be pulled, believe it or not).

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

Discussing it with the seeder is one thing, sure, and having a seeder discover they've made an error or whatever reason they have to not want a torrent to run is fine, but what I'm saying is that, as a potential teaching tool for n00bs, etc., that ALL pulled torrents MUST have a REASON clearly stated by the mod that pulls them (even if it's that a seeder just doesn't want the torrent posted anymore or whatever the problem might be...)

I know you folks volunteer your time, and it ain't an easy job to do for free, but in the interest of making knowledge available that in turn might make your jobs easier, is taking another 40 seconds to add a final post to a pulled torrent that big a thing? A new poster that might read the pulled torrents and see a reason that a torrent pulled by example might not make that mistake. I think that this is a missed opportunity not to be doing this all the time...


Here's an example. One is now running fine, but the pulled torrent posting looks identical with no reason why it was originally pulled. If someone looks at both of them, you start to wonder, well, why?

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

it doesn't matter.
since the torrent was posted again, as you noticed... and less than 24 hrs, just assume he screwed up the upload, asked to delete it and posted it again.

that happens a lot. The majority of our reported posts are seeders asking for their own torrents to be pulled so they can try again.



I do always try to post a note if I pull something but not everyone does that, generally because they don't have time.

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

It really doesn't matter anymore. I'll download and seed and keep a good ratio, but to put in 4 to 5 hours into a video upload only to have it pulled with a snide comment, no thank you . . . there a examples of where other members uploads were fine with the PAL-NTSC mix up, yet they are seed able . . .

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

I recently posted in the thread of a show that someone had posted that I had the show on a CD as an official release. They pulled the show promptly. I was not trying to say that I know more than they did about the show or its release status, in fact I hoped that they would have told me my CD was also a boot as it had more songs from the show, but oh well that wasn't the case.

Re: Pulled Torrents - Unfair

We can't see everything or know every release, and that's one reason for the report button. And for things like this, we appreciate users like azdanger using it and helping us out.
