I might as well attach the UPIX db data. See the field highlighted in
yellow, to see what I mean about the bad "server_name" inputs.

Attached are the BT Methodologies we sent to UPIX.

 

I can tell you now they're not following the methodology very well.
They're continuing to input stuff like "torrentz.com: mininova.org,
torrentspy.com" as the server_name. This doesn't tell us anything. Did
they get the actual torrent from mininova or torrentspy? All of their
results say "mininova" somewhere in the list, so its possible all their
torrents came from there.

 

So you still need to have them fix the same issues I've brought up
before, which are:

1) List the specific site the .torrent file was downloaded from.
Not a list of 5 possible sites for each .torrent. (It's mentioned in the
methodology doc)

2) Have them vary which sites they get the files from. In the
methodology document, I specified all the sites we're covering from
them. They only choosing a handful, and possibly just 1 (Mininova)

 

I'll also send the agreed upon eMule methodology shortly.
