Before posting links make sure you post them in the correct forum.

· Read the forum descriptions found on the board index.
· If a file has more than one audio stream or hardcoded subtitles in a language other than English then treat the foreign language(s) or subtitle(s) as the main language and post in the High Definition (BD, HDDVD, HDTV stream, BDRip, HDDVDRip, HDTVRip) (Foreign Audio Tracks) forum.

Next you need to make sure that your subject line is correct.

These rules apply for the High Definition (BD, HDDVD, HDTV stream, BDRip, HDDVDRip, HDTV) (English Only) forums only, rules for other forums can be found within the respective forums.

Enter the subject line in this order:
Required: IMDb Movie Title.
Required: IMDb Year (in parentheses automatically, if movie has a year in the title, put 2 dots before the year (e.g. ..2001) to remove parentheses).
Required: If there is a commentary audio stream, add a (+Commentary) tag. If there is more than one commentary stream, use (.Commentary.x2) etc.
Required: If there are links in the thread for movie extras, deleted scenes etc., add an (+Extras) tag.
Required: If an originally foreign languaged movie is dubbed in English, add (English.Dubbed).
Required: If there are hardcoded English subs, add (English.Subbed).
Required: Special edition tags (e.g. UNRATED, UNCUT, UNCENSORED, EXTENDED, REMASTERED, CRiTERiON, SUPERBiT, SE, Directors.Cut etc.).
Optional: Extra scene tags (e.g. LiMiTED, STV, FESTiVAL etc. please no TV or READNFO tags).
Optional: iNTERNAL release tag (iNT)
Required: Fullscreen tag (FS) if the aspect ratio is in the range of 1.200:1 to 1.399:1. Widesceen (WS) is always assumed if there is no FS tag, so there's no need for it.
Required: Scene release 'fix' tags (e.g. PROPER, REPACK, FiXED, RERiP, REAL etc.).
Required: Source (e.g. BluRay, BDRip, HDTV etc.).
Required: Resolution (a720p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p); [goto=res]see below[/goto] for details.
Required: Audio Codec (e.g AC3, DTS, DTS-HD, LPCM etc.).
Required: Video Codec (e.g. x264, MPEG2, DivX, XviD etc.).
Required: Release group/Releaser (if available) (e.g. SiLU, REVEiLLE, CHD etc.).


· There should be no spaces anywhere in the subject line, it is all dots except for the dash before the release group.
· Automatic rules are in place to fix mistakes in the subject lines.
· Some of these rules change the first letter case on some words (e.g. the, and etc.) if you want a capital letter enter the first letter twice (e.g. TThe, AAnd etc.).

[anchor=res][/anchor]Overview of common HD resolutions, and the way they should be denominated in the resolution tag:

px: pixels --- AR: aspect ratio

Code: Select all

Tag ...... Typcial Horizontal Resolutions ................ Information

a720p .... 960px, stretched to 1280px during playback .... anamorphic 720p *

720p ..... 1280px; 960px if AR is 1.33:1 ................. intermediate format, 720px vertical resolution at an AR of 1.78:1 (16:9)

1080i .... 1920px; 1440px if AR is 1.33:1 ................ interlaced fields; only appears in HDTV streams; 1080px vertical resolution at an AR of 1.78:1 (16:9)

1080p .... 1920px; 1440px if AR is 1.33:1 ................ full resolution of BDs/HDDVDs; progressive frames; 1080px vertical resolution at an AR of 1.78:1 (16:9)

Now that you have a proper subject line you can read Posting movies on STF - The Guide. to see what content you need in your post.

Please note that while screenshots are not mandatory in this particular section of the forum, they are appreciated nonetheless.

(And as always, post ed2k links in plain text only - that means no tags of any kind.)

Why does it have to have a dot between the words ?

So that there are no spaces between the words.

Because it's against the rules.
