New TTD Features

I figured maybe I should have one thread to just post new stuff that we've added to the site. I'm not gonna go back to the beginning, just hit a couple of things that have happened since the beginning of the year.


Torrent Thread Validation

The mods are going through each thread to look for specific things - the correct type of fingerprints, lineage, gspot info, etc. You, as the seeder, may see a note left at the top of your screen if they require your attention. You may see any of the following notes.

If you didn't provide st5s with your shn or ape files:


If you didn't provide st5s or flac fingerprints with your flac files:


If you didn't provide audio/video bitrate/codec information with your video upload:


Something else is required, so please see the post by the moderator:


I think this went into effect at the beginning of the year. If you fix the problem, the mods should come along and get rid of that note at the top of the thread.

Re: New TTD Features

Warning about Inactive Torrents

There is a warning in the thread right below the torrent file if the torrent is about to go inactive. Torrents go inactive when they have not had a seeder for three weeks. The warning is seen in the thread when there has been no seeder for two weeks.

Re: New TTD Features

I forgot to mention...

YouTube and Gvideo BBCode


To embed the youtube or gvideo into a post, use the following BBCodes (with no space in youtube or gvideo):

Code:
[you tube]code here[/YOUTUBE]  or
[you tube="code here"]video title[/YOUTUBE] or
[g video]code here[/GVIDEO] or
[g video="code here"]video title[/GVIDEO]
The result is something like this:
code:
Code:
[youtube="6El9-65P4xA"]Berfishocca[/youtube]
Result:
"Berfishocca" via YouTube

Threads Needing Attention

To go along with our Torrent Thread Validation, we added a notice for those seeders who have threads that need attention:
Picture 4.png

To view a list of threads that need attention, just click on the link. When you have taken care of the action requested, just click on the Report this Post icon, , and a mod will mark the thread as validated and it will be removed from your list.

Thank you for taking care of these.

Re: New TTD Features

Inserting Images into the Middle of your Post

Did you know you can insert images into the middle of your post - not just at the bottom in the little Attached Images box?

Simply do what you normally do and hit the Manage Attachments button and upload your attachments, but then go to the body of your post, put your cursor where you want the image to appear, and select the little paperclip at the top. You will get a dropdown with your uploaded attachments.



Select the one your want and your image will be inserted into the middle of your post.


See my above post on Threads Needing Attention to see the the result of these screenshots.

Re: New TTD Features

Torrent Put on Hold

To go along with the Torrent Thread Validation in the first post and the Threads Needing Attention in the seventh post, we now can put Torrents on Hold. This is something we can do if we get a report about there being Officially released material in the torrent and we need to check it out, or we can do it if the mods have a question that needs addressed prior to the show being available for download.

If your torrent is on Hold, you should see a notice at the top of the Forums page like this:
holdhome.png

Also, if you go to the actual torrent thread, this message should be at the top and the torrent file will also not be available for download:
holdthread.png

If you look at the torrents list, you should be a stop sign and no seeders/leechers/completes listed:
holdlist.png

A moderator should post in the thread about why the torrent was placed on hold. If action is required from the seeder, then after you have done the requested action, please hit the Report this Post button, , to let the Mods know the torrent is ready to be taken off of Hold.

Re: New TTD Features

Social Groups - create

One of the new features with the vbulletin software upgrade is Social Groups. You may find them in the navbar:
sgnavbar.png

That page will bring you to the Social Groups main page. From there you may select a group to view, or create a new group:
sgcreate1.png

When you create a new group, you may make it Public, Moderated, or Invite only. You may also select to have only users be able to view the messages.
sgcreate2.png

  • Public - open to everyone. There is no restriction on who can join or who can post messages to it
  • Invite Only - require an invitation to be sent to join them. Invitations can only be sent by the group creator or forum moderators and administrators. Invitations are sent by clicking 'Pending & Invited Members' at the bottom of the page for that individual group
  • Moderated - open to everyone to join but messages need to be moderated before they will appear. They are moderated by the group creator and the site moderators and administrators

If you would like other Categories added for the Social Groups, or have other suggestions/comments, please make a post about it in this forum.


edit: 2009-01-27: Changed the Create Group image to include allowing to Enable Albums.

Re: New TTD Features

Profile Pages - Privacy

Only Registered Users are allowed to view your profile. However, now you have even more control over what users may see on your profile. Go to your User CP > Profile Privacy and you may set your profile up to only be viewable by who you want to view it:
profile3.png

You may also decide whether you wish to allow users to leave Visitor Messages or whether you would like to limit them to only your Friends & Contacts.

Re: New TTD Features

Tagging

We have enabled tagging of threads on the site. You should notice a Tag Cloud at the top of both of the Torrent forums like this:
tagcloud.png

The Tag Cloud is a result of tagging of all the threads that users are doing. In order to tag a thread, go to the bottom of the page and you should see a Tags box. Hit the Edit Tags button on the right and you may add tags:
tagadd.png

Please keep these comments non-negative. I can see who makes the tags.

If you upload a show, you will be presented with the Tags box just above where you attach the torrent:
tagtorrent.png
