What is better to do when it comes to batches. Just have the episodes of the drama, or have all episodes, OST and PV (other extras)? I was thinking just the episodes, since it's more likely people will save just the episodes and therefore the would be higher chance for it to be re-seeded. My person...

Re: Searching for original uploaders at DA

I have found that many of the original uploaders are no longer active, or just don't care about replying. Unless you want to, I don't think you are required to do more effort tracking down the uploaders than sending them a message. This is what the FAQ says anyway 1. batch creator (BC) should send a...

^^ I would say it is better to seed the whole batch at once, I believe that way you will also have more uploaders sticking around helping to seed it. Yea it would be great if a batches were always uploaded once a series is finished. It's much more convenient, and doesn't dry out as fast as single ep...

I need a unicode font with full support for extended latin and Japanese characters. It needs to be easy to read from a distance as is (without adding outlines and shadows).

The font I currently use is "Arial Unicode MS", but it is too thin for my taste :)

Aspect ratios, correct true resolution to crop 1.66:1 DVD's?

I'm in the process of converting several movies from DVD to MKV (x256+AC3). The goal is to not loose much quality in the process, as these are meant to be for archival. Using anamorphic encodings, I have cropped movies so far according to the following table: 1.33:1 720 x 480 (4:3) 1.77:1 720 x 480 ...
