torrent upload is missing files (attempting to re-post older torrent)

Hi gang... I noticed that this older post went from "abandoned" to "inactive"...http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=25266

I want to try to reseed this, but I did not keep the m3u file included in the original fileset. For this reason I could not give 100% when this was orphaned a few weeks ago. About 6 leechers were able to finish to 99% with me seeding, but I believe it went inactive before any of them were able to complete.

I want to try a new upload. Is it unacceptable for me to do this?

It is my first attempt to upload a show. Please advise me if this is a poor candidate for me to learn on due to the fact that I tossed the m3u file.

Thanks (in advance)

An m3u file is not necessary for an upload. As long as you have the original flac/shn files and a text file and a fingerprint/checksum file, you should be fine. Just make a new torrent with those files and upload it using the upload page and you should be fine.

Yeah, if you made a new torrent with just those files. If they hop onto the new torrent then there bt client should verify the files and quickly go to 100%.
