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

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.

if i want to download my own torrent it says ''connecting to peers'' of ''downloading metadata'', en it's doesnt go away.

And when i search my own torrent it's light grey, and other peoples torrents are black .

Did i something wrong ?
Nothing wrong. Sometimes it just takes a while to get started.
The light gray means that you've clicked the link. That's all.

I see your torrent is working just fine.
Congrats!
If you have any more questions, just send a PM.

How to make .torrent file to upload of torrent
That's a big question, and the answer depends on which torrent client you use. The best thing is to look for a tutorial. There are a few on this site ... otherwise do a google search. Then, once you get started, you can ask in the Community for your other questions.

I have uploader status, but I see that when I upload, the system changes the name of the upload to "Corbett and Courtney Before the Kinetograph". This happened many months ago and happened again today when I uploaded a film about Salvador Allende. How can I fix this? Please help! :) - thanks
I¡ll send you a PM to make sure you see this.
Post in this thread for that sort of thing:
Thread: Torrents that need updating / KAT changing/ Mod Work Thread Only..V6

Thank you for the very good and helpful description.
I created my first torrent. KAT shows zero seeders but my client shows me seeding. What did I do wrong?
Don't worry, it takes sometime to sync.
Roughly how long to sync? I have like 40 leechers already and I'm still showing no seeders. It's been about 4 or 5 hours. If this is normal, I can chill. I just hate to think I missed some simple, stupid step but from what I've read, I should be good to go.
It looks like everything has sorted itself out, right?
Make sure you're "connectable" ... that means that the port that your client is configured to accept connections on is visible from the Internet. You can check that here: http://canyouseeme.org/ If you're not "Connectable", then peers with half-open connections (peers who don't have a port open in their router) won't be able to connect to you. That will make it harder for people to connect to you and slow everything down.
HTH
What about torrents that have been deleted because of a creation error and can't be re-upped to KAT? How do I reseed a .torrent if the system says "deleted within X hours/days""?
I'll send you a PM.

After I upload the torrent, how do I track its seeding progress?
The best way is through your client, because that will have the most accurate swarm data including DHT peers that trackers miss. The tracker data on the site isn't very accurate.

There are new categories under Books: Programming, Medical, Cooking;
and under Movies: Academic Movies;
and under Other: Sport.
