I understand your frustration and sympathize.
FAQ: Why can I not upload rar or wmv? (you're right, it should be in the rules)

Send me a PM and I'll try to help you out later. Right now, I'm a little busy.

AFAIK, the only video format that is forbidden is .wmv

Hello All --

Does kat.cr have a torrent address to use when creating torrent? For example -- udp://inferno.demonoid.ooo:3392/announce -- for Demonoid.

Please advise. Thanks!

What you're referring to there is a tracker. KAT doesn't run its own tracker the way Demonoid does.

When I upload a torrent, it cannot be found through search. Why is that?

This could just be a temporary problem with the site (we were having a few of those during the last couple of days).

If not, check your Family Safety Filter. Sometimes, something in the torrent title or description will trigger a false positive and you won't be able to see some of your own torrents. This would only happen if you had the filter turned on. You'd test it by turning the filter off.

When it brings you there, you just need to click on the correct category. If you uploaded a tv show then click TV, etc.

Likely? Not very. But you've got to ask yourself if it's worth the risk. An ounce of prevention's worth a pound of cure.

I accidentally deleted the file I was seeding, is there a way to put that file back on my seedbox and 'reconnect' it to the torrent file? It says there are two seeders, but I want to be sure I am seeding my own torrent.

Many thanks.

I'll send you this as a PM just to make sure you see it.
First, you'll get better attention for this sort of problem in the Community forums. Maybe this thread is a good bet: Thread: Need Help? Ask Super Users & Experienced Site Members Here v7

About your problem, the best way, if you don't have a backup of all of your torrents, is to just download your own torrent from the swarm, and then just continue seeding it. If you do have a backup, copy it to the directory where it was before you deleted it (oh, if you haven't emptied the trash you can try undeleting it). After you've got it back in place, do a force recheck.

If you've lost the .torrent file and everything, just download your own .torrent from KAT and download it from the swarm. This will only work if you have at least one seeder out there.

Let me know if this helps you or not.

You need to be approved for uploader status first.
Please read this FAQ carefully

I'm not aware of one on the site, but a quick search of the web shows a lot are available. You can also request a tutorial here in the community. Or, if you learn enough to make a tutorial, you can post it in the Community. If you do, you can give me the link and I'll add it to this FAQ.

Well, basically you're right. The two are built on the same code base by the same company and their updates share the same release notes. There are some little differences, and some private trackers won't whitelist some versions of one or another...

But in essence they are the same, so it's not worth quibbling over.
