Thread: What are "Scene Torrents"?

  1. #1
    Would somebody mind defining Scene Torrents for me please?

    I am registered with a number of torrent sites, some of which say that they specialise in scene torrents, but I can't for the life of me work out how these differ from any of the other torrent sites.

    The scene torrents offer only releases published in The Scene. All other release are not scene, not "official".

    Thanks ivanov. Not sure I'm an awful lot wiser, but I don't think I'm missing anything.

    Files that are released within a week, not older, are scene torrents.

    I don't want to comment on this but it's not how this term is used in the torrent community. To me, "scene torrents" are torrents of releases that are primarily distributed via very private sites and are only being leaked on more easily accessible distribution systems like trackers. "non scene torrents" on the other hand are more often than not releases from single users or small groups that don't have to worry about dupes or strict scene rules - also the distribution is rather locale, often released for a limited group of users in an irc channel or a certain tracker.

    Scene Torrents are also a lot cooler than Scene Emo.
