Ok guys ..... I think we had enough suggestions and ideas for the section to start with...

coz even though we had 100 posts full of suggestions and opinions, we will have more ideas and opinions to be suggested after the section is created.
(I mean if a thread in the Announcements for only suggestions and opinions would be made as a part of the Q&A's section.)

And the main purpose for the section is declared before which is to have a section assigned only for basic questions about basics of multimedia and torrents....

My point of view now that we have to make up our minds to hunt the opportunity to make this real and touchable....

DVD disc manufacturers love to use marketing terms and sell their discs as 4.7GB discs, but this is not true -- the 4.7GB
is calculated by using so-called "Japanese gigabytes", where the power of calculations is 1,000 instead of 1,024 (and 1.024 is the correct way to calculate everything in computer world -- so, 1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte).

NFO (.nfo file):
A nfo file is a textfile with information about the release.

NTSC:
The American video format standard.

OS:
Operating system of a computer, such as Windows or Mac.

OST:
OST stands for Original SoundTrack. An OST is a collection of music found in a particular video game, movie, TV serie, etc.

PAL:
The European video format standard.

Pan & Scan:
Pan & Scan is a method used a lot by movie studios to create 4:3 versions of movies recorded in widescreen format by cropping out areas of the frames so that they have a perfect fit block for a 4:3 TV. The area's of the video that are cropped depend on where the action is currently. Most common, these parts are the movies' borders. Pan & Scan has a bad reputation among movie enthusiasts who claim that the movies are shot in widescreen format and should be viewed the way the director intended.

PAR-files:
These files are able to reconstruct files that are missing from the archive when downloading via newsgroups. For example, if you have downloaded an archive that was split into 47 RAR files but one of them is missing, you could simply download a PAR file for that archive. Once you have the PAR file, you can use a tool such as SmartPAR to reconstruct the missing file.

PDTV:
Other resolution digital tv recordings from source streams at a bitrate of 10+mbps or higher. It is a label given to files that were ripped directly from a purely digital source, having less resolution than HDTV.

Proxy:
A gateway through which users can connect to the Internet. Advantage of proxy is that servers and other www-users won't be able to view the user's real ip.

Proper:
Due to scene rules, whoever releases a certain release the first, has won that race. For example, when a group releases the CAM version of Titanic the first. If there is something "wrong" with the release (poor quality, out-of-sync, audio errors etc.) and another group has a better/correct version, it can release it and add PROPER to the release title to avoid being nuked. However, the source must be the same as the original release. For example: A poor quality CAM release by group A and group B releases their CAM release PROPER. A Telesync release doesn't PROPER a CAM release, because the source is different. PROPER is the most subjective tag in the scene, and a lot of people will generally argue whether the PROPER is better than the original release. The reason for the PROPER should always be mentioned in the NFO. When a group 'propers' a PROPER it is tagged as REAL.PROPER.

Repack:
If a group releases a bad rip, they can release a Repack. A Repack is a fixed version of the original release. It's similar to PROPER but then done by the same group. Note that a Repack is different from a fix. A Fix will repair the original release whilst a repack is a new release.

Rerip:
A previous rip was bad, now it's ripped again properly. Similar to repack.

Resolution:
Refers to the sharpness and the size of a video, usually measured in pixels/dots per inch (dpi).The higher the resolution of a video, the greater the sharpness and the larger the file size will be. 640 (width) by 320 (height) pixels for example is sharper on a big screen than a 320 x 160 video.

Rip:
To extract or copy data from a cd/dvd to another, more useful (and smaller) format.

SECAM:
SECAM stands for Sequential Couleur Avec Memoire or Sequential Colour with Memory. SECAM is the broadcast television standard for France and in some countries in Eastern Europe. Because of its similiarity with PAL (same resolution, same framerate), all of the modern video systems use PAL internally (for storing the data in the storage media, etc) and just change the color encoding to SECAM when outputting the signal back to SECAM TV. SECAM is rapidly dissappearing, all new hardware supports PAL or NTSC.

Serial:
A serial is a key for software. This unique key works as an extra security.

Site Ops:
Site Operators are people who are the administrator of a site.

SSL:
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. SSL is an application layer protocol created by Netscape for managing the security of message transmissions in a network. SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA, which also includes the use of a digital certificate. Sites require SSL to connect to them, this is more safe since the transmissions are encrypted.

STV:
STV stands for Straight To Video. These movies were never released in theaters, instead, they were immediately released on video/dvd. Therefore, a lot of sites do not allow these movies.

Subbed:
If a release is subbed, it usually means it has hard encoded subtitles burned throughout the movie. These are generally in malaysian/chinese/thai etc, and sometimes there are two different languages, which can take up quite a large amount of the screen. SVCD and DVD support switchable subtitles, so some DVDRips and most DVD's are released with switchable subs.

Superbit:
These DVDs do not include special features. The extra room on the DVD is used to provide the best-possible picture and sound. "Superbit Deluxe" DVDs include special features on a second disc.

Syncfix:
A fix which will resynchronize the audio and video layer so they play in unison.

SVCD:
SVCD is a mpeg2 based (same as DVD) video format which allows variable bit-rates of up to 2500kbits at a resolution of 480x480 (NTSC) which is then decompressed into a 4:3 aspect ratio when played back

SVHS:
Super Video Home System, same as VHS but it has increased picture quality and resolution capability.

TC (TeleCine):
A telecine machine copies the film digitally from the reels.

TC (TimeCode):
A visible counter on screen throughout the film.

Torrent:
A special kind of p2p system. It uses a central location which coodinates the downloads but it doesn't host any downloads. The download itself consists of several pieces offered by various users. Such a coordinated group is called a torrent.

Trainer:
Trainers are programs made to modify behaviour of a computer game in order to allow cheating. Usually trainers contain such features as god mode, unlimited ammo and others that sometimes aren't pre-programmed into the game by its designers. Applying the trainer is similar to applying a regular patch.

TS (TeleSync):
TS stands for TeleSync. A telesync is the same spec as a CAM except it uses an external audio source (most likely an audio jack in the chair for hard of hearing people).

TVRip:
TV episode that is either capped from Network (capped using digital cable/satellite boxes are preferable) or PRE-AIR from satellite feeds sending the program around to networks a few days earlier (do not contain "dogs" but sometimes have flickers etc). PDTV is capped from a digital TV PCI card, generally giving the best results. VCD/SVCD/DivX/XviD rips are all supported by the TV scene.

UE:
UE stands for Ultra Edition, it's just another commercial name for a special dvd release similar to SE.

UMDRip:
This applies only to Playstation Portable (PSP) games, and it means that some stuff was ripped from the original game because it was not required or was ripped to save space. For example languages or movie files.

UMDMovie:
The Playstation Portable (PSP) is also capable of playing movies. Though a PSP can't playback DVD's or CD's, only UMD discs. So movies for the PSP get released on UMD discs.

Unrated:
Unrated means a movie is uncensored.

USA, JAP, EUR:
Especially PSP releases, but also other console releases, are sometimes tagged as USA, JAP and EUR. These are alternative regions, and they replace PAL and NTSC. USA are off course the United States of America, JAP is Japan and EUR is Europe.

VCD:
VCD stands for VideoCD and is a mpeg1 based video format, with a constant bitrate of 1150kbit at a resolution of 352x240 (NTSC).

VHS:
VHS stands for Video Home System, and is a dominant domestic videotape format.

VHSRip:
A movie transferred off a retail VHS, mainly skating/sports videos and XXX releases.

Video_ts:
See audio_ts.

VLM:
VLM stands for Volume License Key. This means that the cracked application is already licensed, and therefore doesn't require an activation after installation. Synonym: VL.

VLS:
Vinyl Single, containing 1-2 tracks.

Watermark:
A watermark is a small tag generally in one of the corners of a movie. A lot of Asian Silvers / PDVDs and are tagged by the people responsible. This is usually a letter, initials or a little logo. Most famous are the "Z" "A" and "Globe" watermarks.

Workprint:
A workprint is a copy of a film that has not been finished yet.

WS:
WS stands for WideScreen, which is a screen size ratio of 16:9 (width:heigth).

x264:
A relatively new codec, but the quality is really good. The codec is still in development, and therefore it's not yet used that much. There are already some scene groups who do x264 releases though.

XVCD/XSVCD:
These are basically VCD/SVCD that don't obey the "rules". They are both capable of much higher resolutions and bit-rates, but it all depends on the player to whether the disc can be played.

XViD:
XviD is an open source MPEG-4 video codec. Originally based on OpenDivX, XviD was started by a group of volunteer programmers. A very efficient and high-quality video codec and is seen as the standard in the scene.

I'm sorry to hear that from you netco ... We really gonna miss one of our valuable members.

But I really want this idea to be established as most of the others do.... We have to keep what is good for ET in priority list regarding-less all what happens in here.

Well.. the convoy keeps going.


Code:
Name : What does it mean? <<< "any other suggestions?" Idea: A section in the official forum assigned for only basic questions on Multimedia-related and torent-related to be answered in a simple understandable language. Moderation: (one dedicated SA or Admin) + (two dedicated AAs). 1. Questions & Answers are posted in an opened forum (replyable). 2. A suggestions thread to be part of this forum on Announcements list. 3. An index (closed section/ unreplyable) to this forum's posts (questions) is hanged on the site's banner which will lead user to a forum's index on the announcements list. 4. The style....... as any other forum ... a question is posted and an answer is replied..... simple.


Ok that's it....
Please we dont want the efforts of who cared and cares about this to be gone with the wind...

Thanks for all who shared, cared and dedicated their honorable attendance in this thread.

Site membership and dynamics are going to change all the time. Members will come and go all the time unfortunately. Site structure should never depend on the whim of a few - regardless of how popular or persuasive. But this is still a great idea and worth having a go at. So is the Wallpaper post. So is the Introduce Yourself Post.
But - as I said before - Im not the one who has to implement it - neither am I familiar with setting up and running a board - all I can basically do is throw my hat in the ring and give ideas such as these a thumbs up
