To all of our great new uploaders from around the globe, first of all, we appreciate you bringing torrents here to ET. Sharing is after all, caring. There are a few things we do differently here, and I'd like to go over some of them with you guys.
Well, as most of you know, Mininova is gone. Where they allowed plain text descriptions only, we offer much more here on Extra Torrent (ET). You can use BBCode of various forms. You can add hyper links, images, YouTube trailers, .nfo text / ASCII art, quotes, various fonts, colors, sizes, and much more. We also offer the ability to add what we call a "cover" image.
Doing most all of this is fairly simple. If by chance you are not familiar with BBCode, or image url, or anything of the sort, feel free to PM any of our site staff (names in red) and we will gladly do a walkthrough for all of you. We are a dedicated site, with dedicated members, and a dedicated Administration.
We really appreciate all the new uploaders and members from the fallen Mininova, and we are openly welcoming you into our doors. We are willing to teach you anything you need to know about our site, and our community. Don't feel shy about asking for help, that's why we are here.
An easy way to look for the "edit torrent description" page is to look for this icon:
You'll see it on each of your torrent pages, up top, under the title of the torrent. It's not hard to miss. If you click that, you'll open up an entirely new menu, to add various bits of information to your torrents. All the codes I mentioned, and also, the "cover" image, which you can consider the "thumbnail poster" that you see to the left of this article, for the featured area. For your torrents to be in our featured area, this is an absolute must. Staff cannot feature the torrents, without this cover image.
We ask that you leave the releaser/encoder information in the title. We ask that you put as much information about each torrent, movie, software, game, music, or whatever it is, in the description. If possible, add a poster to the torrent's page as well. These are very helpful tools for getting more hits on your torrents here on ET.
We've always had a rather large community, and they are somewhat "spoiled" by our great features. If you expect more hits, a full and detailed description is essential. By doing so you not only help the community, but help yourself to receive status promotions faster. Again we are willing to help, if you use the private message system to PM a staff member.
Also to newer members, look hard for these two icons next to an uploaders name, the blue arrow,
, means that they are a verified uploader, and their torrents have been verified by our site staff, or you'll see this green arrow,
, which means they are a trusted uploader. There is no higher uploader rank than these two, green being top priority, usually those whom encode or release their own movies, or have a very large selection of excellent torrents. If you see either one, you know you are downloading from a reliable source.
Staff members will have their names in red, as I previously mentioned, and you will see these icons beside their name, one is the for the site's Super Admins,
, and the other is for our Admins,
. These are the the ones with overall authority on the site, so please keep that in mind. We also have, the Almost Admins, with this icon,
, and if there is no Admin or Super Admin in site, they are first line support.
If anyone needs any assistance for any reason, feel free to contact any of the site staff, Almost Admins, Admins, or Super Admins, which are online. We are always here to help. I hope this overview was brief yet helpful as I intended it to be. Enjoy ET!

|Thanks for the info OBS!|
One thing i have noticed about this site is the Uploader icon and torrent status.
If a site admin or verified trusted uploader icons are present you know that file is not a fake.
I look forward to many happy hours/days/weeks/months/years at this site.
So please all new members ( like myself ) respect what we have here and enjoy!
|way to help the newguys OBSCENE!|
|OBS "We've always had a rather large community, and they are somewhat "spoiled" by our great features."|
I'm a PrimaDonna. I don't spoil no matter how many perks I get. But ya tells da truth. ET ain't no text file. Were about da Eye-Candy and maxing out the guage at being used friendly!

|I still don't get how Mininova can get into any trouble by just providing a file search function and offering no tracker of their own, except for the Content Distribution seedboxes, but hey that's the way things are.|
Yes I'm over from Mininova after getting a tip about this site, and it looks nice.
