    dont you think? if what i downloaded wasent archived, i would litteraly seed forever. i keep most of what i download on my HDDs but i usually delete the archives. if i want to seed for a long time, i have to keep two copies of the release! the archived and the extracted! these arent newsgroups or FTPs... DITCH THE ARCHIVES!!

    who agrees with me?

    long live BMTV and TVT where there are NO ARCHIVES

    I totally agree but NO ONE will listen

    They think that if they don't use archives, people will think that a release isn't scene. Either that, or would be to much of a hassle to extract them on the remote server.

    uploading torrents in .rars has been a scene standard for so many years, why would they all of a sudden stop doing it that way?

    Absolutely - with file splitted to archives you can use that partial seeding and optimize your space

    It makes sense for the scene because if a file is corrupted during transfer among the topsites, they can transfer only the corrupted archive part and not the entire file. But it is useless for bittorrent users. The underlying basis for the protocol is a hash check of all files.

    It would be great if BT sites would make a policy for uploaders to extract rar's before they create their torrent's. However, this would cut down on the pre-times and some uploaders might not have enough space on their servers to do this.
