4. Most encoders/uploaders have a pretty good understanding of what they're doing. And they upload "their" stuff in a certain format and size that they like. A lot of encoders/uploaders have a following that enjoy what that person does for them. If you prefer someone else's work, please feel free to move on. Everyone's taste are different.
5. The thumbs up/down is not there to show your dislike for the content of a torrent, it's there to say if the torrent works or not. If you do leave a thumbs down, please have the courtesy to leave a comment explaining why you disliked it. Please don't downrate a torrent because you think the content of the torrent is stupid...I give a thumbs up to movies I don't like all the time, b/c the torrent worked. Use the comments section to tell what you didn't like about it. For movies, try here: Movie Opinion
6. If you believe a torrent doesn't work, make sure you have tried re-downloading it, and PMing the uploader before down rating and leaving negative comments. Sometimes if the uploader is the only one seeding, it may take quite awhile to download. When leechers just hit and run it hurts everyone else. Exhaust all means of downloading, before disliking a torrent. Give the uploader a chance. Also, you can ask others to help seed it here: Thread: RESEED - I need Seeders or a Re-Seed PLEASE!
Or...try a different version, there are usually plenty out there.
It is okay to just move on.
Downloaders - Check your download speed in your torrent client before saying that something is too slow or isnt working.
Many new members don't know how to optimize their torrent client and think something is wrong with the torrent, when it's actually fine, just the speed is being throttled. Thanks to Kitai, for showing us this.
7. The comments section really isn't there to make request to the uploader, its there to tell about the actual torrent quality and things like that. Some uploaders have a request thread out there...for some you can leave a request on their wall.Please don't leave a comment saying "Downloading now, will rate when finished".
Why not just wait till you are finished and then rate.
You are leaving unneeded comments, and will end up double posting which is against the rules and can be taken as Abusing the Rep system.AND PLEASE
...do not state
: "Waiting for a better copy
" or "Waiting for so&so's upload
". You are basically telling the uploader to f-off and not being helpful in the slightest way. Give constructive feedback. Help the uploader to do better.
Also another thing: DON'T POST SPOILERS
in the comments section!!!Original thread by thePiratePimp
