    Dear all,

    we have implemented changes to torrents nomenclature.

    The new nomenclature refers to upgraded, legacy, and suspended torrents.

    1. Torrent status. Torrents now may have one out of three statuses: active (incl. trumpable), legacy and suspended.

    2. upgraded. Similar to the trumpable flag in its functionality, it directs members towards the best quality torrent within a quality category: SD, 720p, etc.

    2.1. upgraded refers to torrents in a quality category which have been trumped.

    2.2. When a staff member applies upgraded to a torrent, all snatchers are notified via PM of the upgrade.

    2.2.1 Members can de-select the notification PM in their profile settings.

    3. legacy/suspended: torrent is disabled (no uploading/downloading), the announce is locked (no new comments allowed), torrent does not show under search or browse.

    3.1. suspended: set by staff on new uploads with fixable problems that might require changing the .torrent file. The purpose is to avoid deletion and reuploading labour. The suspended torrent is placed in a non-activity stasis until required changes are completed. Staff subsequently return torrent to active.

    3.2. legacy: the purpose is to minimize deletion of old torrents and to give an overview of torrent and collection history (e.g. "what was the state of things in 2008?")

    A legacy torrent carries the upgraded flag but is not active: we deem such a torrent to be too outdated or low quality to be kept active, given the presence of a high-quality upgrade. Trumped torrents that have more content than its replacement (such as extras) will not get legacy status, they will only be flagged upgraded.

    Questions / comments: please post here link

    (For all users.)

    Those who visit the forum may be aware that we have implemented a system for image hosting, to be used for screenshots and avatars.

    As this system is not based on a commercial server but on IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), a P2P distributed file system supported by the users, it is designed to be more durable. This solves the recurring problem of dead images in the announces resulting from dead image hosting services.

    To use it, click on the second-to-last tab, called "IPFS". We ask uploaders not to exceed 30MB of images per torrent announce. Uploaded images that don't appear in a KG announce or in a user avatar will be regularly pruned.

    Members with UNIX/Linux skills, some free server space and available bandwidth are encouraged to join the IPFS swarm. Please let buzz know via PM or in that forum thread when you're opening or (permanently) closing your node, as we need a rough estimate of participating peers.

    A reminder: Power Users and above user classes have access to an "Add Screenshots" option at the bottom of each announce. You are encouraged to submit IPFS screenshots to those torrents with dead screenshots.

    (For all users.)

    Dear all,

    Temporary Freeleech (TFL) is among us! A TFL torrent works similarly to a featured torrent, but only temporarily (namely: upload is counted and download is not counted). After the time limit expires, a TFL torrent reverts to being a normal, active torrent. It's easy to tell if a torrent is currently TFL: it's advertised in big, purple letters at the head of the Description.

    TFL comes in two flavors: 48 hours and 7 days. The former will be applied by staff to approved and reviewed upgrades (which are in English or have English subtitles). Please note: only upgrades uploaded since the introduction of the 48h FL option will be set to FL. The 7 day FL will be applied to films which get custom subtitles.

    On the right of the main site, you will see that there is a new section showing all the latest TFLs.

    You may post your questions and comments here:

    Best wishes,
    Staff
