Okay - So you found an old torrent (a dead torrent, no seeders), and you want it...

What do you do? Do you try to hit the "Please re-seed" button? Does it even HAVE a "Please Re-seed" button to push? No? Well then, did you go searching for it all over the Net to see if anybody's got a seeded copy of it? Assuming that didn't pan out well for you, what did you do about this conundrum?

Did you send the uploader a PM to ask them to re-seed it or re-upload it?

Or did you just Neg it, and go away (mad, maybe)?

Assuming that you tried all the usual methods to get something that is here, but "not here anymore", have you checked to see if the uploader is still active on KAT? Did you try to go to their profile page and see if they've put in an appearance in the last 6 months or so?

I think we all need to realize that torrents have a shelf-life, and it's NOT a long shelf-life! It's short, sometimes it's so short, it winks in and then winks out, because of DMCA copyright issues. But rarely, if ever, does a torrent remain active here more than 6 months. A few do, yes... because the uploader is still active here, and knows which torrents are in long-term demand. The rest - well... the only way you are going to get a dead torrent to magically reappear is to contact the original uploader (if you can), and ask .. politely -- for a reupload.

I got another Neg (Thumbs Down) this morning from someone who didn't like the fact that my 3 1/2 year old torrent didn't have any seeders, and she couldn't get the music. I saw her Neg vote in my Rep List, and sent her a msg to let her know how we do things around here (or how we should do things around here). This is a recurring problem here at KAT because newcomers don't know the "ways things are", and how to get something they want. But I think the real issue is that people look at torrent titles, but they don't look at the age of the torrent, or check the uploader (to see if there even IS one still active here). Details, details! If you really want something here, sometimes you have to ask for it... especially if it's an old torrent with no seeds.

LOL.. and why the HECK would you play a nekkid LADY... is that less embarrassing for you than playing a nekkid dude? (I would imagine it is... I am thinking you are playing Conan?)

Thats a good question.. I dont see me behind a neeked man with a remote contro. Might get awkward.. Besides, is there a male version? lol.. You seem to know alot ;)
