Welcome to the torrents subreddit. We are a thriving community dedicated to helping users old and new understand and use torrents. Please read over the rules before contributing. We only have a few, but they are important.
No pirated content. [why? because.] This subreddit is for the discussion of torrenting culture and learning how to use torrents. Topics focused on piracy & pirating specific content will be removed. Try /r/PiratedGames, /r/DigitalPiracy, or /r/Piracy instead.
Search before you post! (also see Common Post Topics listed below)
No invite requests/offers. For invites try /r/Trackers Invite Offers or /r/Invites. For trackers with open signup try /r/OpenSignups or /r/Trackers open signups thread. For info on recruitment/joining private trackers see /r/Trackers.
Discussions focused on topics covered in other subreddits may be removed (see Related Links below)
This is not a place to discuss DDL sites. Try /r/filesharing instead.
YIFY encodes are terrible and should never be viewed so stop posting about them.
Peerblock & related blocklists have never done anything despite what your confirmation bias has proven.
This is not a TorrentFreak RSS feed so please don't post every article they write.
Do not request or post torrent links or seed requests. For legal torrents try /r/torrentlinks. For illegal torrents try /r/torrentrequests, /r/illegaltorrents2, /r/deletedtorrents, /r/toteslegaltorrents, /r/btih, /r/requesttorrents, /r/Scholar, /r/Scholar_advanced, /r/Textbooks.
The new queue is why half the mods drink and the other half cry themselves to sleep.
