OK staff and admin this is really getting to be a problem...Uploads are being labeled with BAREBACK category to get clips downloaded and users are being misled and wasting space downloading a clip they did not want or would not have downloaded...
Its time to either warning the uploader and removing the clip or set a system in place to allow a user to be reported by the community and the clip be removed for misleading the community...
It s a great space for all of us to enjoy and share the porn we want but I also think the studios will start to come after the system for misrepresenting as well as the sharing of their property ... SO Im not just complaining Im trying to get you to see that this is a real issue...
I hope you take this seriously and act on it...
Misleading the community should be grounds for a ban or at least a timeout...

I reported some torrents I downloaded and turns out the screen capture were not the one from the torrent. the staff kindly credited me back my ratio and removed the bad torrent. so it shouldn't be a problem. if you downloaded a torrent thinking it was bareback and it was in fact not I guess you can contact the staff to sort it out.

Tag use in general seems to somewhat arbitrary, or at least there seem to be at least a couple of different philosophies about how to apply tags.  That likely occurs because there isn't any generalized guidance on how to tag things, or even on what some of the tags mean.  The only guidance I can find is on tags is associated with creating torrents, and it just says that there has to be at least one tag (category) and that there may up to four more.

To illustrate this consider the following X generally described torrent descriptions and the tags that are on them.  These are all real examples, meaning that I can find torrents that fit these general descriptions with the tags indicated, and yes, that includes all the tag variants.  I'm leaving out anything where there is a substantive misapplication of the tags (tagging something bareback when it's not.)

  • A torrent for a scene with two guys.  They make out, the suck each other a little, they fuck bareback.  This torrent could show up with the following tag sets.  The first one listed is the "primary" tag:

         Bareback, Anal, Oral Sex, Hunks

         Anal, Oral Sex, Bareback, Jocks

         Bareback

    What gets me here is the double tagging Bareback and Anal.  In terms of strictly gay sex, doesn't Bareback necessarily imply Anal sex without a condom?  The second thing is the inclusion of the Oral Sex tag.  A pretty large number of gay sex torrents have at least some oral sex in them, if they all got tagged as such it would pretty much dilute what I see as the purpose of the Oral Sex tag which is to indicate torrents where the sexual content is primarily or exclusively oral sex.
  • Now consider a scene where the guys don't fuck.  The action is predominantly oral.  This scene could have the following tag sets:

         Oral Sex

         Hunks, Oral Sex

         Hunks

    The last two don't make any sense to me as the scene doesn't show up when someone is searching for things tagged Oral Sex.

I could go on at length with examples but those show really the problems.  I can totally understand the tag system is supposed to be user defined and holistic, but it strikes me that in the absence of any guidance (or the ability to apply boolean logic to tag searches) the usefulness of the current system is somewhat limited.

It feels there is a need to update the tag/category system, and turn it more user dependable to avoid mods fixing every miss tagging, like the tag voting system on pornbay or e-hentai.

Is there perhaps a way to make the tags editable? Honest mistakes happen. I did this very thing by accident two days ago, I had three scenes I was uploading, and one of them was bareback. I accidentally tagged the wrong one. Given that I could not re-tag it I immediately added an addendum to the description. However, at least in MY case the condoms were CLEARLY visible in the screen grabs.

I can see a warning, but I think a "time out" is a bit over the top. It drives me bloody nuts when people end every other sentence with......  I'm not here ranting that you should be forced to stand in a corner somewhere until you can properly punctuate.  Roll Eyes I once bought a brand new Jeep with ALL of the options I needed. Bluetooth, AM/FM CD, Power seat, Power Glass, all in there. I drove that thing for 2 months never noticing it had no cruise control. Yes I was ticked, NO they did not take it back. You downloaded a file, you didn't buy a house.

There is a VERY popular video on here that I won't name taken at a party boasting all bareback. Of what looked like maybe 25 people there I DID actually see one lone fucker fucking with a condom on. I suppose THAT video would then be mis-tagged? Get a grip.

I will in the future be far more careful when tagging my torrents. I suppose I could just tag "Anal" and let you figure it out from there, but I suspect we would just be back here in a thread like this.

Users can edit their own torrents for up to seven (7) days after upload. After that time is up, the only way to modify the torrent in any way is to contact a moderator to make the changes. There are a few reasons behind this policy.

Also, there is a way to report torrents. There is a report button at the bottom of every torrent information page.

You can edit the torrent, but there is no edit feature for the category which is what the OP was complaining about. I don't even know that *my* torrent was even necessarily the one he was complaining about. I actually did even try to hit the "report" button to see if there was a "Message mod" feature, BUT lol, apparently you can't report your own torrent. Going forward I am of course trying to be far more careful regarding tags, but it would be great if that became a feature that could be edited. Hindsight, I suppose I could have just deleted the torrent and re-uploaded it.  Wink

Not quite... There is a way to modify the categories, as long as the sub-categories were assigned as the result of votes, and were not set at the time the torrent was uploaded. That however can only be done by a mod.
