It seems likely that RULES / GUIDELINES spelling out the RECOMMENDED FREQUENCY of using the RESEED BUTTON to request a torrent be reseeded... has never been posted here (to the best of my knowledge), so here goes:   Cool

We request that members only hit any one reseed request button
A MAXIMUM OF ONE TIME PER DAY... for any one torrent.


I'm thinking earlier rule makers figured it would be common sense not to request a reseed on any one torrent more than once a  day to avoid annoying other members who had previously downloaded this torrent, but often, it seems, "common sense" is somewhat lacking, by members... rather often, in fact.  (no offense)  Wink

So... to avoid getting reported by annoyed members, and quite possibly getting your account put into a WARNED STATE:

Limiting your Re-seed requests... to ONCE A DAY (per torrent)... should keep you out of trouble.

Thanks, take care and try to stay safe,

I really appreciate this problem being addressed.

Although it has only happened to me a few times over the years, there are members -- usually new(ish) to the site -- who may not think through the impact of sending these requests again and again and again.

Meanwhile, everyone who once downloaded the torrent, even if their own file was deleted or archived "off-computer", gets waves of messages.

Recently, a member was using the re-seed button excessively, even after being advised politely that five messages were sufficient.  They were given a time out, and had to sit in the corner for a while -- as it should be.

Thanks to the Admins and Mods for maintaining good order on our beloved site.    Hug

OK, so there is a member who is adhering to the new "once per day" re-seed guideline, but even so, he is now on his fourth or fifth consecutive day of requesting the same upload, and I would prefer not to see it in my Inbox going forward.

I blocked him, but the upload requests are still coming through, which leads me to ask whether a block should include all forms of messaging -- as it apparently does not cover re-seed requests.

Any input from senior staff appreciated, thanks...    Cool

Technically the way our system works, re-seed requests come from the tracker, not the person clicking the button.
