Tracker Is Back UP!!!

Recommended Posts

if you notice any anomalies please post in this thread, but things SHOULD be back in the same order as before the crash.

 

don't ask what the error was, because it took me almost a month to figure it out and it was actually quite simple :blush

I've re-opened the Lollapalooza audio (http://bt.viachicago.org/details.php?id=548) and will try to get the DVD up there by the weekend, too. I'll also post something to this effect in the tree thread, in case anyone wants to withdraw from the tree.

 

If anyone has any requests for shows that they had partly completed before the crash, let me know, I'll see what I can do about opening some of those windows again (not all at once, of course :) ).

this is going to seem like an idiot post, but so be it.

 

I have a few torrents still that were from before the tracker went down. I also saved the links to the original torrents pages, which of course are now gone.

 

Is there an easy way for me to upload the ones I have, so that others may use them, or am I going to have to create a whole new page for the torrent, etc.?

 

thanks,

 

Neil

As long as you still have both the files you downloaded, and the .torrent file, it's very easy to upload a torrent. Most of the information that goes on the page comes straight from the info file that you've already got downloaded, and the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Just go to this page http://bt.viachicago.org/upload.php and upload the .torrent file and enter all the info, and you're done. If you're only uploading shows that you had previously downloaded from this tracker, you shouldn't have any problems, but it probably wouldn't hurt to check out the rules http://bt.viachicago.org/rules.php anyway. One rule that you'd probably want to note is the thing about making sure your torrents are well-seeded. Do them one at a time, until a few people have downloaded from you and you have at least one other seed, before seeding the next show; rather than seeding a bunch of stuff at the same time.

well, I have all the original files, but no torrent files. could someone direct me to a decent site for instructions on creating a torrent with the saved files I already have?

As always, I'll put in my plug for the BT101 thread (this link is in there):

 

MakeTorrent v2.0

 

thanks, that's eventually where I landed and I've downloaded maketorrent. Just have to figure it out now.
