I will be the first to admit, i am very naive regarding the Scene.
I know they hate P2P in general and they do not want their releases on them.
so what exactly do they want.
Personally i believe that if a scene release is uploaded to a tracker or anywhere you should give respect to the scene, as in, do not tamper with the release in any way, and upload it as the name it was supposed to be uploaded with.
Maybe im wrong on the above though and thats not what they want.
Stopping any releases going to P2P ever is just impossible, unless they make it a very exclusive thing to be in the scene again, Not sure exactly how it works so i wont tell them how to change, but it must be pretty easy to not allow the releases to escape.
If a release is uploaded somewhere else, which IMO they cant realy stop as i said above, would they rather.
A: It was uploaded as is without any tampering at all
B:The uploader unrars it, renames it, re-rars it, makes new .nfo for the place hes uploading it to, passwords the rars (this could be a way the scene stops this anyway) uploads it to where ever it is he is going to upload it, and no mention of the scene group at all.
Just with everything thats going on lately, ST and now Brandon, and then god knows who else is in for a shock, i think its about time we heard exactly what the scene wants from the P2P community.
I am also not getting at the Scene here, they do what they do and they do it well, and without them we would have to wait longer or never get any releases at all.
I would just like to know if we can change how we do things, and if we can sort of work together in anyway to solve these disputes.
I very much doubt they will even read this, never mind reply to this, but i do think someone, somewhere has to make the 1st move and try to resolve all this amicably between all parties.
PS: Probably a bloody stupid post and i have thought long and hard about posting this at all, i just think if i dont do it, no one else is going to, so might as well get something going (even if it just stops at this post).
Not a rant, just curious if there is anyway to put a stop to all of this thats going on atm.
