|Ok this one is for all admins, almost admins, and super admins. I see lately a lot of our great staff are verifying and checking torrents, and that's great, keep up the great work. I've thought of another great idea which can benefit our members too, and I hope you'll all implement this into future torrent verifications. I'll explain a bit further for you.
Say you come across a torrent, maybe from a regular uploader here on ET, maybe from a new member... Well, you may download it and verify it, we all do that, but how about we fix the descriptions? What I mean is, from now on, if you check/verify a torrent, as a staff member of ET, you should also start doing the description if it's missing information.
This would benefit all of our members, and they can easily find what they need to know about on the torrent. Also this will help ET, because those using search engines to find torrents, will thus be more likely to see an ET torrent in their results, if they are searching by cast member, plot, etc.
This is essential to guaranteeing that we provide the best possible appearance for our community, and showing what ET is very well capable of. We all can do our part in this. If you are the admin/AA checking a torrent, then you should now also make sure for movies that the poster, thumbnail image, screenshots, plot, cast, and release information are in the description. For audio files (music) make sure that the track info, and poster or cover are in it as well. If it's software, try to find the directions and place them into the description too.
By each of us doing this, it means ET will be essentially clean and eye grabbing, and give all of us some tasks. Finding the information is easy, use major databases to find what the description requires. http://www.allmusic.com/]The Internet Music Database, http://www.imdb.com/]The Internet Movie Database, All Poster Database, and of course the best method of finding the information, the LARGEST torrent indexer in the world, Google. Use all of these to find what you need.
So if you're checking torrents, let's try to make sure they appear the way they should. If it's a movie, PM the uploader, ask them for screenshots, if they cannot find them, then you try. If you're checking it, you should also be downloading it to verify it right? Okay. Then take some yourself. Even if you do not take them yourself, Google can find you some surely.
Thanks to all for working hard to keep ET the place to be, and hope everyone agrees that by doing this we can keep ET fresh and easily used by our members.

|I've just been told by an almost admin, that they are not able to edit the torrent descriptions of others, but they are able to verify them? Can someone confirm this? If so maybe admin can make that change for us. I see no point in being able to verify a torrent if they cannot fix descriptions as well admin I'm pming you this now ;) lol.|
|you should make a area in the forums for uploaders to request torrents for verification. leech's wont touch a non-verified torrent unless they have no other choice(or unless it appears better than others)|
|once u verify the torrent u cant change nothing ... thats why u have 2 edit the torrent for what its missing then verify.. it|
|As an AA I was able to verify/edit/delete all normal member torrents. For edit/delete the changes had to be confirmed by an admin. For verified and trusted uploaders I could only verify their torrents, nothing more.|
|Yeah its a great idea. I tried to change the description on a torrent a few days ago, but when i tried to check the torrent a few days later it wasn't in the database :( He probably deleted it :( I'll check out some torrents and try this method :) Thanks for the post OBS ;)|
|The only torrents we cant edit as AA are from trusted uploaders,aa,ECT..|

|so to come to the old post .this is the idea..instead of warning..do edit the info your self and ...voila|
|Thanks for the information SaM :)|
|More work for us, less responsibility for the uploader? No, that's not right. Sounds like a free scapegoat for lazy uploaders. There needs to be minimum guidelines for uploading. I'll edit some torrents for people no problem ... however, if they show consistant failure to tackle their own torrents, then more action will be required.|
Personally, I suggest implementing minimum guidelines. Accompany that with a newer post consisting of an uploader's rubic. Full entails of the uploading process from torrent creation to final product. Of course the majority emphasis is the ET torrent page and how to use the funtions therein. Flash some pics .... bing, bang, boom ..... a great tutorial for new and existing uploaders.

|well i have to agree why should we do the work if uploaders are lazy thats not right but rules say nothing about posting picture ect but uploader should do the same is selling a car online the more info pictore ect the better change you get to sell it same goes for torrent the more info the better so i vote no we should not do uploaders job if you can call it that|

|it seems like.. and this is just my opinion.. that we a few need more admins here at ET... with all the torrents uploaded daily here i cant even imagine admins and such doin all the editing of the torrent for the uploader... why dont admin for example post easy followed directions on how to edit, upload and make sure a torrent is valid and made correctly.... that might cut out 50% or more of this problem... or uploaders can do what i did and ask people in chat and thru pm's exactly how to do it... i have found on numerous occasions that everytime i go into chat with a question or a problem i ALWAYS leave with the answer or solution... but i would never expect admins to edit my torrents... however they (wick,madd, and reno) explained in detail how to do it.. new members and new uploaders need to learn how to take advantage of all our resources here at ET and quit expecting everyone to do the work for them... i have learned by askin questions and trial and error...|

|as OBS said..first we r not doing it for the uploaders..we r doing it for ET so that our torrents look better...and then yes we cant keep doing it for them all the time..u r going to do it for small,newbies,first time uploaders etc..till they learn..regular uploaders who r not complying with essential requirments of torrent updating should get a kick in the ass and wake up or their status should be revised...thats what i see..|
|posted by (2009-09-19 17:52:28)|
|so if its done for ET so the torrents look better and there is way more torrents uploaded every hour than there are super admin, admin, and AA's then it seem that my first theory is correct..we need more admins to help out more... i personally think there is enough, and the ones we have are great and very helpful but if more work needs done, we need more workers.. imagine that|
|It's simply this, if you verify the torrent, and it's missing information, why not add the description for them? We are professionals at it, how hard can it be to add it to a few torrents, and then PM the uploader, and show them how you did it? That is why we are here, to help. We should also all want to make ET better and by having proper descriptions then that in my opinion, makes us the best. Do it for ET. I myself do it for many many many of our uploaders. Some of them simply do not understand BBCode and are unable to take the time to learn. So I personally have no problem with helping, if I verify it, it's going to have a description. I guess that's just me, perfectionist. Obsessive-compulsive to say the least. Lol.|

|the prob is uploader read this post and hmmm ahh ill let admin ect post picture ect im lazy but still not inn rules and even on some private site torrent donth ave pictire ect atm i dont think we need anymore admin almost admin ect its fine like it is|
|posted by (2009-09-19 19:47:51)|
|im always to help ET so we be better but then maby ask admin to add picture ect in rules at the end off the day he calles the shoots and hear what he have to say i know he is hart to get a hold on :D|
|Some good points there guys and girls.|
W1ck3d1nt3ntz-you have hit it on the head Imho-im just reading down the page now...
Taker and Obs-Yes you are right that as Admins "we" should add a description to the torrents if the original poster emits this from an upload.
Trusted and Verified uploader status SHOULD come with a few rules ie posting with screens etc.A pm could be made to the group permissions-when a member joins or is promoted.Its easy to do(as well as expire).
ADMIN get your supers together and get something etched in stone,polish the gems you have.....keep the diamonds shining-Nats
|I BELIEVE, WE AS MEMBERS SHOULD DO OUR PART IN MAKING SURE THIS SITE REMAINS ON TOP, I ALSO BELIEVE WE WHO UPLOAD AS BEGINNERS, AND UP-LOADERS THAT HAVE BEEN DOING IT AWHILE JUST MAKE SUPER SURE THIS SIGHT REMAINS FREE OF JUNK (COME ON PEOPLE THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER JUNKYARD)THIS IS A SITE THAT IS GROWING AND WILL REMAIN GROWING AS LONG AS THIS SITE DOES NOT BECOME AN OTHER JUNKYARD. |
I MYSELF WAS DRAWN TO THIS SITE BY HOW CLEAN IT LOOKED, AND HOW TRUSTED THE UP-LOADERS WERE NOT TO DISPLAY JUNK. ME AS A NEW-BE IN UP-LOADING, I ALSO WANT TO MAKE MY UP-LOADS LOOK JUST AS NICE AS YOU GUYS THAT HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A WHILE, YEA BECAUSE IT IS KIND OF LIKE BUYING A CAR THE MORE INFO AND THE BETTER IT LOOKS THE EASIER IT IS TO SELL, SO REMEMBER THAT'S IN AN THING YOU DO.
SO KEEP UP THE WONDERFUL WORK ADMINS-ALMOST ADMINS AND SUPER ADMINS AND ALL UP-LOADERS
|I'm with Wicked.... Maybe Admin should make a rule for uploader... |
== Movies ==
1. Dvd Cover
2. Screen Shots
3. Encoding Info
i think if you consider yourself an uploader then you should have all that available... no one is going to download a torrent with missin screen shots and cover and we should warn the uploader.. thats how we keep ET clean from fake torrents..
|Yeah... well me personally, when I verify a torrent, if it's missing info I fix it. That's just me.|

|What about changing the "upload" page a bit. It has:|
Info URL (optional):
Generate name from torrent file
Description (optional )
What about changing the "Description" from optional to compulsory. By having to put in what Madd_Skills mentioned.
A bit off-topic----When will people be able to log into the forums?
|I have never posted a comment before, until now. That is because I whole-heartedly agree with xxobscenexx suggestion here. It would make the site so much better than it already is. :)|
|i'm with wicked.....@ post 14....a guidelines is needed....there is alot to do already|

|It seems like a good idea to me, but the problem is, we aa's cant edit trusted users or above as SaM has said, but these so called trusted users and above should be editing their own descriptions and if they dont do it within a certain time they should be moved down to verified...I mean half the movies and music pirated now days ive never heard of and would like to find out, and thats what description is for. because without it, im sittin here on google searching for hours to find the right info, these "trusted uploaders" should be doing it themselves. thats all i am saying...|
|Y cant we just leave it the way it is? I dont want to edit others torrents,and I will not give a warning to one that dosent give info on a torrent. Its their torrent and if they wont take the time to put info then it probally wont get as many hits.|
|posted by (2009-09-20 19:05:51)|
|and thats y they dont deserve trusted uploader....|
|posted by (2009-09-20 19:06:35)|
|because a real uploader would actually take the time to put screens, movie info, plot, and cast, and other stuff or whatever they use...|
|posted by (2009-09-21 01:10:18)|
|I don't really comment to much and am pretty new to chat ect. I just had to say this tho. I ONLY download torrents with complete information. 7 times out of 10 my downloaded are by Obscene or verified by Obscene. 2 out of 10 is Noir. The other 1 out of 10 is anyone who has something those two don't have but have also put in the info I need to know. All on my own I figured out that Obacene and Noir's downloads are the best. Now the question is why? Obviously because the information is there every time!!|
|My whole purpose in this article is to suggest, that if the uploader has not placed the info... and you "verify" it... then you should do the description if it's missing info. If you verified it, then you watched it to check it's authenticity, right? Well if you did that... then you can do the description as well. Or PM the uploader. Yes maybe a rule change would be great, forcing uploaders to do a proper description. All I'm saying is if you spent the hour plus downloading to "verify" it... then you would have the file and can spend five more minutes taking screenshots no?|
|Well that dont sound too bad...But chasing down torrents with no info,ahh dont sound cool.lol|
