Couple Qs about this site and P2P in general

Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Couple Qs about this site and P2P in general

Post by Elmojo » Sat Apr 23, 2016 2:52 pm

Sorry if this is the wrong section, can't find a better fit.

1) Why are some current threads (typically TV shows) getting locked? I'm sure there's a good reason, I'm just curious.
2) Why is the scene moving to the MKV format for most TV rip files? I'm personally not a fan of MKV, but if I'm missing out on compelling reasons to make the jump, I'd love to be educated.

Thanks in advance for any schooling you guys can provide.

1) Was explained expansively by momijigari here basically some people have a relentless need to post "thanks"comments and that's annoying when your subscribed to a thread meant only for releases.

2) IIRC they moved to MKV because it supports more formats, better quality, open source, less error-prone, and probably some other advantages that I'm unaware of.
