2020 Rules Update

 

Hello Blutopians,

 

We are thrilled to welcome you into 2020 with the announcement and soft release of our new ruleset. You can find an overview, our announcement, and the linked rules
HERE
. Even though this is a soft release, we expect everyone to give them a complete read through and start following them as much as possible. At this time, please do not report, trump, or delete any torrents that break the new rules. All of these things will be allowed once the rules are officially rolled out at a later date. Any changes to the rules will be reflected and catalogued in the announcement forum post, so please follow that for updates.

 

Thank You!

Greetings,

 

As many of you are aware, Blutopia has had an issue where many torrents were lost and we were left to resort to magnet links for these torrents.

We also learnt at the same time that rTorrent 0.9.6 seems to be the only client that is sending the required metadata magnets on torrents that have the private flag.

 

Because of this, we ask that if you could kindly send in your torrent clients cache folder (The folder that's storing all it's current .torrent files) as well as any other torrents you may have previously archived for BLU, to one of the staff members for us to correct that torrent. We understand this may be slightly difficult for some of you,but we are willing to work with you individually to help resolve this matter as soon as possible.

 

 

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated

 

Regards,

 

Blutopia Team

Site Health!

 

Greetings,

 

I am making this post to inform the community that my financial stance has changed greatly! I am going to be 100% upfront. I can no longer pay for this site to operate. Until things change on my end we need the communities help and we need it badly if this site is to remain in existence. At the time the site costs $215 a month to operate. $200 for the server and $15 for the mail service. At this point I know a lot don't do crypto. If that is the case you can sponsor me on GitHub for my open source projects like UNIT3D and I will be using the proceeds to help cover site costs. With GitHub you can use PayPal Credit or Debit.

 

With that said you can make a donation via the site and receive the perks it comes with or you can be a champ and sponsor via GitHub, however you do not receive any site perks. Just know you're keeping the site alive.

 

I made a post a week ago asking for sponsors via a Post, Article and MassPM. To my surprise out of the ~10K members we have we got only one sponsor from it. Im letting you know the struggle is real right now. We have never been a site to do ads, send pestering PMs constantly about donations and alike. Right now we need the help though.

 

It's up to the community for now.

Dear Blutopians,

We are delighted to announce a pre-release of our official remuxing guide which can be found and discussed here. The guide is aimed at users wishing to prepare for the BLURANiUM User Release Program, but we hope it will help others too and contribute to the improvement of wider remuxing standards.

The guide was a cross-group effort, but special thanks is due to moderator Roardom for having both pioneered and managed the project.

The guide will always be considered a work in progress due to the continuous improvement of both software and internal remuxing standards. All Blutopians are invited to take part in shaping its future development by sharing feedback in this thread.

Best wishes,

Blutopia Internals
