This was a subtle error, by more than one staff member, I think.

My scripts automatically try to tie multiple torrent links for the same file to one "release". The mechanism used for this isn't very intelligent: afaik it merely checks if two files have the same file size and then presumes they might be the same.

This process then still needs to be manually verified: but it's easy to make a mistake if you're not paying attention Anyway, this way the link for episode 4 was tied to the list of links for episode 2. This way of adding a new link won't appear on the main page.

Another staff member then noticed the link for episode 4 was marked as "episode 2" and tried to fix it, resulting in episode 2 being changed to episode 4.

I've now fixed it by deleting the link tied to episode 2 and changing the details back & then adding a separate entry for episode 4.

I hope this explanation wasn't too confusing In any case, should this happen again in the future it means it's time for me to make the scripts a bit more intelligent so that mistakes are less likely to occur.

Not knowing anything about how your scripts work, I might be shooting blanks here.

You might see if you can do a HTTP HEAD request against the torrent file and see what date information the server returns. I believe this is how most proxies (like Squid) determine whether a file has been changed since it was last downloaded. HEAD is the same as GET except the actual file contents are not transferred, just the HTTP header information. Take a look at section 9.2 of the HTTP RFC 2616.

You also might want to look at http://www.squid-cache.org/mail-arch...9904/0688.html, which discusses how Squid uses "If-Modified-Since."

I'm not entirely sure that would do much good, as old torrents are moved around, so a very old torrent might show up with a very recent modified date. Also with dynamic sites (PHP scripts etc) you might not even get such a modification date.

My scripts are actually already good enough to be able to detect the episode number from the filename. However they don't yet prevent someone from just clicking "Next" even when the information presented is conflicting. So if this kind of problem will occur more often, then I could simply add a warning that'll notify the staff member adding the torrent that episode numbers (and CRC if applicable) do not match with existing information.

Edit (before hitting reply):
Actually... I had already made my scripts a little smarter. When I try to add Hidamari Sketch ep 4 again, it now properly only comes up with episode 4 as possible match. However before episode 4 was added, episode 2 was the best possible match (as filesize and series name matched).

Here is a screenshot of what staff get's to see when adding a link btw:

But imagine that instead of episode 4 listed near the top, it listed episode 2.

As you can see my scripts are able to get a lot of info from the filename, so most of the time Staff doesn't need to add or change any information, which makes it easy to just click "Continue" and add the link to the wrong "release".

(My scripts don't allow the same link to be added again, thus I temporarily uploaded the torrent to the staff site. However I don't want the URL of this site to become public knowledge, so that explains the pixelation. I know security by obscurity isn't very good, but every bit helps)

[AQS-Avalon] To Heart 2 OVA 1

Noticed that the h264 version is listed correctly, but not the XviD version. XviD version is named as To Heart 2 1, which should be To Heart 2 OVA 1, as this episode is not from the original TV series.

Torrent links if needed:

[Arienai] Pretty Cure Max Heart Movie 2

The listing is fine, but you need to update the description.

The Max Heart Movie 1 can be watched any time after episode 7.
The Max Heart Movie 2 can be watched any time after episode 31.


That is the most accurate thing to say in this reguard. (Although neither have anything to do with the main plot, exactly).

Lovely.

While you're at it, it might be worthwhile to add in descriptions for the other Pretty Cure Series for how they are related to each other. The names are unclear and people often are confused.

Pretty Cure: Original Series
Pretty Cure Max Heart: Second season of Pretty Cure that takes place after Pretty Cure
Pretty Cure Splash Star: Third Season of Pretty Cure, with unrelated characters and plot to the first or second season (continuity reboot).
Yes! Pretty Cure 5: Fourth Season of Pretty Cure, with yet again unrelated characters and plot to the first, second, or third seasons (another continuity reboot).

Okay... that was a bit more involved, but I've added to those pages. Let me know if you approve.

Post Ayako @ AnimeSuki.com

Just wanted to mention that Ayako's website is http://www.ayako-fansubs.com/ not http://ayako.snowlava.com/.

Well, I couldn't find better section for this, so put it here. ^^;;

Thanks, link updated. Forum & Site Feedback is the better sub-forum to post, for example in the Torrent Listing Corrections thread is as good as any.

Broken Download - Heroic Age 04

Seems the episode 4 Your-Mom releases of Heroic Age download links are b0rked, clicking either of them takes me to a 'not available' error page. All the others work fine though. Upon inspecting the links (yay for Opera's link reveal on hover feature ) it seems ep4 is pointing to 'fourzerofour.us', while the rest point to a tracker (tracker.anirena.com).

Cheers

It seems the DNS servers for fourzerofour.us are denying the existance of any records for that domain, effectively rendering it completely dead. Based on the amount of times a check for new torrents has failed (284 times) and considering a check is done every hour (24 times a day), it's fair to say this status has lasted for nearly 2 weeks now.

I've now marked all torrents on fourzerofour.us as inactive, which means that any alternative links should now take first place. In this case that means episode 4 will point to anirena.com now (please allow 5-15 minutes for the mirrors to update btw).

Tip: any torrent listing with this -> <- image in front of it has multiple links. Just click it to view the details page of the torrent which lists all those links.

Forgot I posted this, that's what happens when you're tired I guess

Thanks GHDpro, never really paid much attention to the little + symbols as I get all new releases mostly from RSS direct, but on this occasion I got fed up waiting for a particular group and had to visit to get the torrents for another group. Handy bit of info, ta muchly

But still, not a bad place to post the update since it more than likely will get noticed here

Missing torrents in some of the anime series?

While searching around looking for new animes to obtain, I see that some animes are completed but I only see some of the torrents.

While not looking too hard,

Da Capo Second Season is listed as 26 episodes, but there's only a torrent for the "Promo" & only the "episode 1-13". Is the other 13 not just listed yet or is there an error?

ps: *update* humm... looks like Shinsen-Subs don't have a torrent for the rest of the 13 episodes.

The full 1-26 can be gotten here ^_^. Downloaded the torrents to check if they were actually by Shinsen-Subs, and it looks like they are. But for some reason I don't see it on their list in their torrent listing, it must have been an old one or it's one someone outside of their circle made.

ps: Does the torrent have to be an official release by the sub group or can it be buy a third party?

The [Shinsen-Subs] Da Capo Second Season torrent has been made available (posted last year) and is on their site.

The reason it wasn't listed on AnimeSuki was due to an error made by one of our staff, I've now corrected it so it will now appear on our Da Capo Second Season page.

The reason the "completed" flag was set was because at one point in time all 26 episodes were available (as single torrents) but over time the single torrents had been removed (due to the release of a batch torrent).

Note: The "completed" flag is an indication that at some point in time all episodes were available via BT, it doesn't always mean those torrents are still available.
