Rules for all Verified Uploaders
(image EUL + image VUL)



As a VUL you are required to upload (per month) 20 torrents minimum
spread over the month for 3 following months from the date you are verified


All uploads must not break any rules or contain the following files:

.torrent

(these are not allowed on site!)

All Uploaded Content must be in the torrent you upload here!

Any Torrent uploaded should not require any further downloading of files
via another torrent or File Host


Any one uploading .torrent files will be subject to Loss of Status


Password protected archives are not allowed
unless you supply the password in the description and in a text file in the torrent it self.


Encrypted Torrents are not permitted and will be treated in the same way as a .torrent file.

Commenting on own torrents is not allowed Repeat offenders will loose their VUL Status.

Replying to Comments questions etc posted by other users
is the only time we expect to see you comment on your own torrents



Seeding


All VUL's are required to Seed all their uploads and maintain a minimum of 1 seed per torrent.

Some unseeded torrents will be over looked

however anything uploaded in the last 48hrs found:

unseeded, paused, stalled or Deliberately Limited:

Will be unverified without Warning!

You then have 24hrs to return to seeding it fully

Torrents still not seeding properly after that 24hrs will be Subject to Removal

Any further torrents like this in the next 30 days will result in the loss of your VUL status.



** Important **


if for any reason you are unable too seed your torrents:

you are required to either PM a member of staff or update your status to state your problem. Any new uploads you cannot seed due to this problem need to be Deleted until you can return to seeding them properly


Please note:


Manipulating the seed count in any way to get your torrents to show up on the main page is forbidden!

any Verified User found to be pausing/capping their seeding/uploading will be subject to the removal of the torrent and/or to a suspension from Verified Status determined by Staff/Admin.

Any Tracker you use should connect correctly and show correct seed/leech count as advertised, any trackers used to fake the seed count will be removed and Blocked by our System and you will loose your VUL Status.



Descriptions


Your uploads should continue to have Good & Correct Descriptions.


Asking for Donations on your Torrents is not allowed! This includes any kind of donation widgets and the only place you may ask for this in your torrent is to add this info in a description file inside the torrent or on your Wall and Blog. Asking for donations anywhere other than your personal space is not allowed.

Links to images or samples located on an external site for streaming or downloading is not allowed. This also applies to any other kind of link to external sites.

Definition of a link to an external site:
Clickable or non clickable text of a sites url this includes text embedded in images
Anyone found using external links to streaming or download sites will be subject to loss of torrents until you have edited them and removed all links. Frequent problems with links could lose your VUL status this will be left to the mod dealing with the problem. Such links will be added to our list of spam sites preventing further use.


Content Dumping




EUL: No dumping of torrents from any other source EUL found dumping will loose their Elite Status and it will not be returned.
* Exceptions can be made by Staff & Admin with certain uploaders with minor dump history, who otherwise fulfill a higher standard on presentation and quality.

VUL: You may Dump but if a title is released say today you have 48hrs in which to upload these kind of torrents. Anything outside this time frame is not allowed, if found dumping outside the time frame constantly will result in loss of VUL Status


Uploading Activity



When you request verified status you are agreeing that you intend to regularly upload to KAT.
If a 6 month period passes with no uploading, your status will be removed
and you'll be required to start the VUL process over again, in order for it to be returned.



** Important **


All Uploaders must cooperate with our Moderation Team staff & Admin, When contacted regarding any issues.

Failure to cooperate or aggressive behaviour Will result in the loss of your VUL Status, failure to cooperate too many times and you will fall into the sites Blove Rules:


If a user is unable to understand our rules or cooperate with the mods in solving the rule violation issue, he will fall under the the Bloves Rule and declared a persona non grata. Any of his further established accounts will be removed after a first serious violation and the staff will refuse to cooperate with this user in order to solve this problem.


Once verified you will continue to upload (per month) 20 torrents minimum spread over the month for 3 following months from being verified. This does not include doing a 40 one month and having a break for the next month, there is no way round this wanting to be verified should mean you intend to be a serious uploader.
