would like to announce two minor changes to our uploading rules.
The first change is for rule 2.1.26. Downsampling of WEB sources is now allowed for audio files sampled at 88.2 kHz and above. This rule used to forbid downsampling of WEB sources for audio files sampled at less than 96 kHz.
The second change is the addition of rule 2.3.20. Leading spaces are not allowed in any file or folder names. Leading spaces cause usability and interoperability problems among various operating systems and programs. Torrents with file or folder names that contain leading space characters are trumpable.
There is no grandfathering and no grace period for torrents in violation of rule 2.3.20.
