    on the PT faq seeding rules... i think its new as its in bold...

    . Download .torrent file is equal to downloading full torrent (except .PACK. torrents) ! You are warned.

    so just downloading the .torrent file flags you for downloading the whole thing ?? sounds like they are having trouble with ghost leeching or somethings ? ?

    That IS weird, it must be a bug in their code that's considering a download of the .torrent file as a snatch.

    Very cool thing they want to increase the numbers ...

    I interpret that as if you download the .torrent file, you're expected to seed the torrent according to their seeding rules, whether or not you download any data. If you don't, it might be counted as a hit and run.

    that "You are warned" is not directed to me its to everyone on the site... the line i pasted is from their FAQ/Rules section ... its just how they are operating now and i think its very strange ... if you accidently click on the wrong .torrent you will immediately be responsible for seeding it back to 1.0 or some number of hours... imagine if its a 10 gig torrent you miss-click

    . Download .torrent file is equal to downloading full torrent (except .PACK. torrents) !
    = "If you download a torrent, you must leech 100% of it (excepting packs)."

    Meaning partial seeding isn't downloaded on non-packs. Just like on BCG.

    Well i never read it like that, it sounds to me that if you download the torrent, so basically a hit on the torrent details page, then you have to download the whole thing, but then the bit in brackets, could very well mean no partial seeding, i think it could be worded better though.
