|Have you had an issue you feel needs resolved? Maybe a complaint, or topic you feel needs to be pointed out or discussed? Do you have any grievances with our site? This is the place to discuss this as a temporary thread of fair and balanced debate and open discussion. Freedom of speech exists here. Speak your mind.
We all have suggestions, ideas, and even complaints or unresolved issues at times. Typically, ET Forums is the area where we would all discuss these types of threads, but as some of you may know, or would like to know, we are in the process of rebuilding Extra Torrent's Forums. During this process, many members cannot post in the current forums, and until all future updates of the forum maintenance is completed, there is no way for the majority of our registered members to post their feelings regarding issues right now.
I think everyone should have a say and allow them to get things off their chests, or suggest or promote or debate ET rules, functions, activities, uploads, features, and anything as well as everything to do with our great torrent site, Extra Torrent. Nothing like a great debate to spark some interesting thinking, and to unite us all in a common cause. We need unity, fairness, and balance, to continue to provide you with the best possible experience of any torrent site. Which we plan to continue to do, show you why ET is the best, or how you think we can make it better.
I have opened this article, as a free minded and open debate for all to place anything they feel needs resolved, or anything they feel suggesting a debate about will be for the greater good of the ET community. In order for our "team" here to be 100% on the same page, our community's interests and opinions need to be addressed openly and freely, and with the current forums down to most, we needed this space opened as a temporary home for this topic.
I get PMs daily from those whom have suggestions or complaints or anything they want to be discussed, and I feel it's something that everyone should have a say in. Please in the comments of this article, feel free to state any ideals or views you feel need addressed, as we use this article as a temporary home. When ET forums are completely rebuilt and everyone can then openly access it, I will move this thread to that location. Until then, let your voices be heard! Freedom of expression is welcomed. Thinking outside the box is always a good thing.
Again I am sure if everyone at least has their voices heard it will resolve almost every major issue. There is no "I" in team, nor is there a "community" without discussion. If knowledge were truly power, then everyone learning what another has to say, think, or feel, can only be the key to supremacy. Alone we are wise, yet un-motivated, together, we have all the motivation and wisdom to accomplish anything. Every single one of you has something to offer. There is no excuse for not trying.
Nobody has written your destiny for you. Some of the most successful people in the world, are some of the ones who have made it past some of the largest failures. You become better at something by hard work and dedication. Trial and error. I expect great things from each of you, score yourself some points and don't let yourself down. Freely open us to your ideals and motivations, and maybe, you may gain an ear or two in the process. The community of Extra Torrent can only become stronger when all eyes are open, all voices are heard.
Special thanks to everyone who visits Extra Torrent daily, for without you, we do not exist. Thanks to everyone who is a part of this site's administration, including Almost Admins, Admins, and Super Admins. Thanks to all the uploaders who dedicate their time and effort to bring us the torrents we share. Thanks to all of you, for making ET the place to be. Now have at it

|I thiink Badass is frankly Badass :) I have issues sometimes when trying to sort using the icons and the site will not sort by size. Is this just becuase the database has so many records to index? On a technical note are we SQL?|

|my complaint is when an AA or Red warns or bans someone to watch it get overturned without even consulting the person that issued the warning or ban. We are supposed to be a team here and not work against each other.|
|posted by (2009-09-09 04:04:33)|
|My biggest gripe I guess if I had to make one would be the simple fact I do not have full ADMIN powers yet and am powerless and helpless for all intensive purposes to do what I want to do to help ET become even better :)..LOL other then that, not much to complain about till I give it a little more thought...|
|well im not a complainer and this is a great site i love it. although i do have a suggestion: maybe you could make the chat box on the left capable of chatting directly instead of having to use either two windows of Iexplorer or two tabs. 1 for chatting the other for searching the torrents : )|
|@ Decoy, we used to have the "shoutbox" html chat, but we decided a larger chat room is better, due to the fact that when there are alot of people talking in our chat, the small one was not large enough for everyone to have a say :)|
|Me as a Red .. I'm also with Method.. i hate to see a Red overturn another Red's decision. Especially when it's between SuperAdmins. If a Red banns a member it has to be for a good reason we dont do it just for fun. And if the member that got banned didnt recieve a warning maybe its because he's being gettin warned way before the bann..|

|my complaint is that kingoz just sit in chat and dont deleat or help in chat that i have seen and then crys when he gets boobs and quits it's just a damn icon and then crys because he wants his red back i think after you quit you quit you cant come back. so yeah i agree with madd_skill and mEtHoDmUzIk|

pm me and I will help

|Yup avatar size needs desperately to be enlarged 150x150 would be more then enough to let us all have some very kick asss avatars!! to someone like me into the grfx aspect of things it would give me a really nice chubby for a long time :) It is almost next to impossible to make a little tiny ass 100x100 picture cool...and in a world so to speak where you are your avatar for the most part...its really important to a lot of people.|
|ok i forgot to mention the fact that once you are giving RED status that means your loyal to the site.. so it means bann or warn people even if you know them or not.. that comes with the RED suit.. and thats why we are having all these overturns. cause one red banns another reds friend...|
|posted by (2009-09-09 04:31:59)|
|And when you quit you should have to start at the bottom of the ladder that there are many more AA's that have been waiting for red and its not fair if a red decides to quit they get it back they should have to earn it and someone else get it thats only fair|

|when there are torrents on ET that say the other sites names that is perfectly fine i have noticed...but apparently its only ok when the site is someone the reds are cool and they feel threatened by that site...but since when has p2p community becmome a monopoly and not about sharing anymore....but some reds here have the beleif that et is the only site around but cross promotion is something thats needed and has to be there mentioning another site to just a FEW friends from ET, is not going to hurt ET...hell even sending ppl from other sites here isnt going to hurt that site its all about sharing and not greed|
|my complaint is at the moment i aint got none|
|I am still new here but excited to be a part ET. My only suggestion would be to keep a more robust list of TV shows when uploading. Major series are not listed in the drop down sub menu. Probably just needs an update. TY for everything you guys are doing.|
|I agree yes rather than the categories we have I feel they should be simplified. Each series should not be its own category. Categories should be XviD/Divx or x264/h264 as that is proper I do not see how genre's themselves are proper. :)|

|well all red ect should work together not agains reds there is a reason some one gets bann warn ip block ppl seem toforget there must have been a reason for warn bann ect. and the boob thing there is maby a reason for it what do i know ill let that one up to kingoz. hope he use this post to explain it .so all red stick together its not one team vs the other in some kind off hunt|
|Well, I personally like ET very much and really enjoy working behind the scenes here and do my part to make ET that much better.|
My grievances lye within the backroom of ET. I've seen alot of discontent with/between the Site Administrator "admin" and also the lack of a working relationship between fellow SAs, Admins, and AAs. The time for drama on ET should become past-tense ASAP. All of us work here for the common goal to "Better Extra Torrent" as an overall site. With that being said, I would like all Site Staff including "admin" to acknowledge the need for clear-cut rules/regulations for everyone including but not limited to:
1) Overall Site Maintence Procedures
A) Torrent Checking Procedures
B) Torrent Delete Procedures
C) Content Allowed/Disallowed
D) Compiled List of "Bots" for Site Staff to Reference
2) Promotion/Demotion Procedures
3) Banning Procedures
For All Site Staff these regulations are essential to streamline the existing work done behind the scenes as-well-as help to strengthen an already GREAT Site Team. If "admin" would humor this request and compile something concrete and distribute internally, I for one would be very happy.
I have smaller grievances as well like anyone but I believe the most pressing ATM would be to strike into the core of ET and strengthen from within.
These are just my personal rants from my POV ... my 2-cents if you will.

|I agree with W1ck3d, some of the examples would be;|
1.Int he main rules says no axxo torrents, but I got rid of most but three are left that are done by "trusted uploaders" and cannot be removed, also "admin" has a positive comment on one. I think that at one time the axxo's were good but now are not.
2. You cannot delete "trusted uploaders" torrents for any reason? What if they are legit bad? Say a little brother uploaded crap in your name?
So an update of the torrent posting rules is needed
I had been warned for posting links to other sites in my torrent description when I was new and know how it was a bit frustrating since clear posted guidelines were lacking and I see today a ton of cross promotion in torrents. In my episode I was fortunate to have been contacted by an Admin who was mindful of his power and everything was ok and I felt that the warning was just, based on his clear explanation. Thatâ€™s the key to me; treat people like people and they usually come along to your side. Treat them like dirt they revolt and move on or cause behind the scene havoc.

|threat ppl the way you want you be treathen and its all good well some link to torrent site is ok so atm its kinda unclear what you can and cant have link to in upload|
|Super article theres no stopping the ET train now! I agree with nwolke to a certain extent, maybe ET isnt the only p2p site but its one of the best, freshly laid out, Shoutbox and Chatbox and forums keep everyone informed, site articles are a super idea, and see the guy who does the blog, super job all round! :)|
|I also agree with taker, reds should be given the respect they're deserved from other reds as well as super admins, those of us who are reds, battled hard to get where we are today through helping admin when ET was small and still the place to be. |
Banns are handed out because they need to be handed out to ensure our good ET members are confident in using the site for the purpose its built for, which is having fun, discussing, browising and maybe some downloading :D
Remember REDS are here to help, some might think the power has gone to their heads, but reds take action depending upon the actions of others, please remember reds have more info and knowledge of members ip's so when members are abusing the system using different id's thats when the reds are watching very close.
ET is the place to be.

|Also i wanted to add I am totally displeased with the misuse and abuse of the "review" feature......its been rendered totally piss useless. Maybe the whole review thing is one reason so many people stopped doing their duties in their positions because reviews and 3rd grade popularity contests became more important...KILL THE REVIEW SYSTEM or at least make it so the review is for something someone actually did instead of the gay ass...todays monday here is ur 5 points, review me back.|

Admins must live in peace or burn in hell :)))
|well dont really no what to say kinda hard to follow all these posts but theres some tings ive noticed noones has mentioned yet|
just my personal suggestions
1)at least 1-2 screens should be in discription of movie torrents cuz sometimes i just dont trust it ya know
2)i think we should have our own open tracker
3)it would be cool to have sigs like below all the info on your profile like under comments,torrents,reviews,etc and maybe a little info about ourselves
ok im done ranting just throwin out ideas no ones thought of yet

|Seems we all forgotten things are free here, true i get pissed if my friend kicked from chat who doesn't seems a lot of kickin going on lately. As for overturning bans n stuff etc hell yes hal do if need be as warn first then small ban not straight 5 day ban only in most severe cases..wot gets me is you look and the said person has 3 warnings from AA,2 bans from Red etc we dont all need to stamp our mark , just 1 person. Also i see said offender given tits and in description like " take this you whiney arse " etc it is not needed dont ridicule the person. Also Reds and Supers wen ban try not to write take your f8cking cock bla bla etc just simple fake uploader etc. Also it dont help with different time zones you log off , Log on only to find a power mad super, red overturned your decision in the evening. We have an ignore button use it . There is that many ppl's status change i forget who is wot . People AA 1 min , next red , just cos a red quits it dont mean ppl can jump in his grave and spot free ..... Me done for now ranting over must be my hormones time of month......|

I would list the following: http://www.tv.com/shows/top-shows/today.html

|Finally i hope all the childish games can now cease and we can all move on at last.I wont ever get dragged into the recent Et Farce,its just a waste of time that can be better used for something more constructive for the site.|
To Admin,Just because some members are VIP's it shouldn't give them a free ride to behave like Anal expulsion tubes-if they misbehave continuously or have multiple accounts then Ban them.Keep up the good work ALL~Winks

|:D Well this was an interesting discussion :)|
|Just goes to show when forums are done it will be a popular place for spam/bitch/moan area LOL|
|I also believe if the torrent doesnt have much description it shouldnt be uploaded.. we need 2 have dvd covers and atleast 2 screen shots.. if not deleted at the time seein by a REd. or AA|

freinds no freinds ,it comes with being an admin or sa ,bfd if your bud got banned or whatever ,let then face there ban time ,and first you should get to bottom of it ,pm red who did and then sort ,there is no team in I ,helps if you know all details :)

|I agree with badass and xxxOBSCENExxx 100% and dougie so like if you banned me for such and such reason for something it be ok for one of my friend come back and unbaned me no i dont think so it's not right if anybody friend do something worng they deseve it but thats my 2 cents|

|Simple man, do the crime do the time..the end...if you want to talk to your "banned" friend turn on yahoo or something...I mean jesus christ..this is a torrent site not fecking www.jerryspringer.com|
|I agree 100%. When someone who has been banned or warned HUNDREDS of times in the past, they do not merit a simple warning, INSTANT BAN. Call me nazi or whatever you want, but NO OTHER TORRENT SITE would put up with that kind of sh1t, and I will not either, and I know a handful of staff here like BADASS, Madd_Skillz, SiLvErDuSt, SouLesS, SaM, W1ck3d1nt3ntz, taker, magiccrack, who all completely agree with this, also agreeing with taker and SiLvEr that you cannot hide behind VIP when you cause problems. I think ET would be way better off if those who cause problems were just eliminated from the picture. We have a very strong and dedicated staff if we could just all get on the same page... Admin is right, the war is evident, although I for one am not trying to be part of it. I do speak my mind, and if anyone doesn't like that I am sorry. When you feel strongly about something, you should stand up for your beliefs. That is essential to progress. :)|
|Oh one more thing, I love ALL of our members here on ET. You are all my second family, and the family of all of our staff! You guys are all great and we respect each of you|
|Great Job on the Article Obs... And for sure if you go to another site you dont get warnings u get your account blocked and terminated.. they dont give you second chances. And yes multiple accounts aint no good especially if its used for insulting members especially a SuperAdmin.. me i stand side by side with my REDS even if they are responsible for the arguing. thats what loyalty is.. We all Sink ..Well thats how i see it|

admin (2009-09-10 07:57:40)
|Someone tell me please how i can detect multiple account???|
|@ admin IP addresses used to login to each account, put a filter for this. Set script in place to log each IP's of each member who logs in as many private trackers do. On those trackers, you cannot even log in to, for example, a friends account, from your PC, if your IP address is registered already. :S Also banning and blocking entire ranges of proxies, and VPN's used to cause trouble would be a good start. This is why others have suggested you give a new rank of system op or the power to superadmins to block entire IP ranges. Would reduce this problem tremendously.|
|hahahaha Noob :)... Like i always said @ Admin you should make Obscene System Ops and hand him the keys.. i believe they are in good hands... without him this site wouldnt be as it is now..|

|ohh forgot i love you all here at ET and ofc i dont have any prob with any off you here like obsc said i also speak my mine fredom off speach|
|It's pretty simple really...TOO many Reds! you should have to EARN a "RED" not be given it?? It should be a priveledge, not a given by the number of times you come on and kizz azz. I've been banned twice now for- nuthin'? just chatting, ok maybe it was beyond some members brain cells, but ya don't like it, then send a private warning message, not display it? for all the weens to see, wtf? |
Oh maybe I'll be banned for saying that??
I will stay out of chat from now on, too much BS! there, but will remain a "PAID" member and enoy the uploads, and articles, screw the chat chit...
|If your not a PAID member you should'nt have any rights? not even a RED.|
How can be ET be successful without some kind of financial backing?
It's only a few $$$ ! cheap pricks...

|well for speaking your mine you should be bann for this post imo some may not agree to bad i know alot dont come in chat do to the bs there have been going there and im happy you will keep paying it help keep ET up thx alot for that just hope your not a truble maker :) and i totaly agree red should not jsut be given out to any you should earn it but it look like there might be something about the azz kissing what do i know so i think its better to check up on that sicne alot off members say that you might be right maby there is to manny red here and getting bann for chatting you must have doen something wrong ?|
|yeah "#69" my fav, Wow this really is a big topic i got the 69th post |
pretty cool i like ET alot and thanks to all our admins for for keeping the place cool,new,and "fresh" and thanks to all uploaders
for bringin stuff to ET the best place to be......EVER!
|@ 65 BHM, my response, "With all due respect sir, I receive TONS of PMs each and every day, from the "little people" new members, those wanting to upload, etc, and I ALWAYS reply to each of them and help them out. The only people here who have things they "want to get off their chest" or are worried about status are those whom have become obsessed with jealousy. This is ignorant. We are all here to greater and better ET right? Right. Or at least, we should be, and not worry about what others do or have done, and those who don't keep up the pace as admins, should step down. Those whom decide to cause us problems, should be removed." That's my take on it. To each their own. My nigga. :)|

|i have one more suggestion obs then im a leave you alone buddy. OK i know y'all are working on the forums but i was just wondering if u could make like, umm hell i don't know kinda like a request article or something and when your request is upped then its removed so that it doesn't get all cluster plucked. i mean like sometimes well most times i have to come in chat room and ask ppl if they no where to find ...such and such and i dont like bothering y'all all the time. i mean y'all probably don't mind but if i came in there and asked for every request that i have then eventually someone is going to get pissed. Im no idiot even i dont mind helping someone a couple of times but everyday damn, i would be like im sorry man you just got to go look for it dude. I just think it would be better instead of me interrupting someone's hilarious chat with where can i find ____. That way if someone knew where ____ was they could just post it to the article and like make it where the person who requested it signs off on it so that way its not removed before the person sees where to find his request. My new request is JD's Revenge its an old old movie i cant find it anywhere. Hell i cant even find it at blockbuster or movieworld. any suggestions,help, or advice would be greatly appreciated. thank you all ((ET Community))!||
