Using the Site

Torrent Colors

Green entries (trusted) are: Red entries (remake) are torrents that match any of the following: Orange entries are: Grey entries are:
Search results can be filtered by category, remake, trusted, and users. The results can be further sorted by size, date, seeders, leechers, completed count, and comment count.
You can combine search terms with the | operator, such as foo|bar, to match any of the words instead all of them.
To exclude results matching a certain word, prefix them with -, e.g. foo -bar, which will return torrents with foo in the name, but not those which have bar in the name as well.
If you want to search for a several-word expression (substring) in its entirety, you can surround searches with " (double quotes), such as "foo bar", which would match torrents named foo bar but not those named bar foo. You may also use the aforementioned | to group phrases together: "foo bar"|"foo baz". You can negate the entire group with - (e.g. -"foo bar"|"foo baz"), but not single items.
You can also use ( and ) to signify precedence, but quoted strings do not honor this. Using (hello world) "foo bar" is fine, but quoted strings inside the parentheses will lead to unexpected results.

Reporting Torrents

If you find a torrent that breaks the rules, click the button to the right of the torrent's information page. Then, enter a reason for your report in the dialog that opens, and hit the button to confirm.

Styling Descriptions and Comments

You can style your comments and your torrent's description using Markdown. This includes adding images or linking to external websites.
To link to an external site, use [label]( where the text in the [] square brackets is the shown text of your link, and the URL in the () parentheses is the URL your link will point to.
Embedding an image is similar. Use ![alt text]( to have an image embedded in your comment or description. Note the ! exclamation mark at the beginning, denoting that this link is an image.
