Thread: 0day spam in packs or not?

  1. #1
    Hi,
    What are your thoughts about spam releases from scene on torrent trackers. Should they be in packs, separate browse page for spam, or together with all other content?
    Which option and why?
    I would be glad to hear what you guys think what's the best option for these spam releases.
    Thanks.

    Having to choose from those three, I'd go for the separate browse page for spam. That way they can be easily searched for and won't clutter the "main" browse page.

    Is there an official standard for "spam"? But whether there is or isn't, I'd put spam on a separate browse page. Otherwise, I'd avoid 0-day altogether.

    I've read this on an FSF article:
    Spam includes 0DAY (small apps), XXX-0DAY (imagesets, siterips), MP3s (music releases), MVIDs (music videos), EBOOKs, WII DLCs, TV-DVDRips, unknowns, and others (which may include language-specific rls). Rule of thumb is: anything under 100MB usually fits into spam (although TV-DVDRips are a known exception).
    I don't know if it's "official", though.

    I double this. SCC has 3 separate browse pages, and IMO it's the best choice. When TV used to have Blurr and Msrv the only thing I wished for is one more browse page dedicated to spam releases.

    It's not neccesary, but these 3 options are most frequent choice.
    So, I see, two/tree browse page, but is it a bit annoying to jump from browse to browse when you are searching for something, for example?
    I would rather have all torrents on same place/page ^^

    A thick box "Include (spam|non-spam) results" on teh search pages.

    Why not just implement an integrated search? Or have options to search in different/combined sections? I think differentiation with the option to combine is a lot better than mass conglomeration with nothing to guide you but your pecker.

    Or what heiska said.

    You can usually tell in which browse page the release you want will be, so that shouldn't be much of a problem. Although the suggestions heiska and Anarkial gave above are also good.
