I have gone through my old school torrents, and none of these Torrentreactor torrents are mine. The Uploader is: a55talk <http://www.torrentreactor.to/profile/user_202214> ….Torrent team, is this username familiar to you?

After a bit of snooping, it turns out that these are old-skool torrents. We’ll investigate this matter further when Pedro arrives.

Is there some way to discern auto posted decoys from decoys posted by the team? If so, do both sets of decoys have this problem?

Only affecting our decoys from what I’ve seen so far.

I have encountered that before during testing. It seemed to me to be a download error from the site (e.g., all torrents I got from that site were “invalid”). Is it affecting all torrents, or just ours?

Torrent team,

 

I was doing some tests on “Supreme Commander” on TorrentReactor and saw that a few of our decoys bring up the error “Invalid torrent file” when I try to open them with uTorrent. Any idea why this is happening?

 

Examples:

http://www.torrentreactor.to/torrents/view_361078/Supreme_Commander

Thanks,

 

Daniel Lee
