--- reserved for uplaoder ---?? (uploader's comments)

Post by ColdCell » Mar 27th, '06, 06:24

This is rather stupid but I'm really curious...

Why are there so many "--- reserved for uplaoder ---" messages in the first post when a file is uploaded?

For example a person A upload drama B. In the torrent commet, A puts --- reserved for uplaoder --- message. However A is the uploader, so why does he need to reserve the post?

Or is it that A is planning to put the file info on a later date?

There are often other users got their chance to post a comment first before the uploader has the chance to post his/her own post.

So the uploader wants to reserve the first place to post further info later. (about the torrent)

*I used to think it is only for uploaders. Leechers can not download this torrent. ^_^;

That message is left by uploaders who don't take the 30 seconds or so to describe the contents of the upload. Thoughtless IMHO.

true.

it presents us with a dilemma. we appreciate the fact that people are eager to share their dramas/osts/etc. but the first post is also very important for mods to understand what the torrent is (and whether it belongs on d-addicts), and also for members to learn the properties of the torrent.

we're not asking for a NOVEL. just a few short sentences about the quality, source, credits, synopsis, etc.

if the first post is not filled with any info, it leaves all of us in a bad position. the uploader is left answering many questions, OR if s/he doesn't answer, we mods are left wondering if we should delete the torrent and deprive members of (what could be) a perfectly fine torrent.

canon05: ap's posts are fine. he gives the bare minimum and usually has the jdorama link for info. most people aren't even putting THAT much info....
