Re-seed Request Rules. [READ THIS FIRST!] Empty Re-seed Request Rules. [READ THIS FIRST!]

Hello everyone,

In order to request a re-seed, your post should meet the following guidelines:

Arrow  The torrent that you wish to see "re-seeded" has been uploaded by Games4theworld, and NOT by any other uploader.

Arrow  The torrent in question has FEWER THAN 2 seeders.

Arrow  This automatically means that you can NEVER request a re-seed for any "The Sims" game, because those ALL have more than 2 seeders.

Arrow BEFORE REQUESTING A RE-SEED, please onfigure your Bittorrent client correctly first: - Most low download speeds are caused by an incorrectly configured Bittorrent client. In addition, consider updating your torrent client if there are updates available.

Arrow  As hinted in the guide linked in the previous point, port forwarding can be crucial as well. A starting platform on which you can learn about the basics, can be found here:

Arrow  Sometimes a torrent download does not start immediately; under some circumstances (old/slower computer, old/fragmented harddrive, etc.) it can take several minutes for a download to start. Please try and bring up some patience before posting a re-seed request here.

Arrow  Beyond that, take into account that seeders may only be active at certain times of the day, so you should try downloading something (if it seems to have not many seeds) over several days, and if possible at different times of a day too. This aspect will be especially the case with some of our older torrents. Again, please undertake this "testing period" on your own before you post a re-seed request on the Forum.

Arrow  Bittorrent trackers don't matter anymore for you being able to connect to other peers/seeders.

Arrow  For the following (older) G4TW torrents, we may not be able to guarantee consistent re-seeding. However, you can still post these requests here, in order for other users to jump into the occasion. Plus, while we may not be able to provide a re-seed, we may be able to come up with a more individual solution to your request. Someone will get in touch with you in case of such an event, and if possible. 

- Anno 2070
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- Bioshock 2
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- Call of Duty: World At War
- Counter-Strike: Source
- Dragon Age: Origins
- Football Manager 2010
- Guitar Hero: World Tour

- Mass Effect
- Mass Effect 2
- Portal 2
- The Saboteur

Arrow  Finally, be friendly when asking for a re-seed. Don't get mad because e.g. there are allegedly only two seeders for your torrent, and you still cannot seem to get a decent download speed ("just enough seeders to not be allowed to post a request, but speeds are still too slow"). Or because you do not like any of these rules. We are all human beings, just like you, and not machines. Should you feel that your particular request does "not quite 100%" match the rules outlined here, you are more than welcome to post a re-seed request; in that case you should explain in a calm, reasonable and polite manner why exactly you feel that a particular rule does not or should not apply to your problem. We will - as we tend to do with many other aspects of our Support - try to come up with an individual(ized) solution for you. However, any such exceptions will only be undertaken at our own discretion.

When asking for a re-seed request, we assume that you have read and fully understood all of the above Rules. In case not, we reserve the right to ignore and/or DELETE your request, no exceptions.

Small update to the Re-Seed Request Rules on 01-06-2019.

If, for whatever reason*, we decide to e-mail you a direct download link for a requested item, the original download link will now "expire" after 48 hours of us sending you the e-mail. So yes, you will have to download the item rather quickly. In your own interest, be alert and stay in touch please.

If the deadline passes and you, for whatever reason, did not manage to download the item, you may request another extension. Just bump the Re-Seed request topic you already opened, or reply to the original e-mail that we sent you.

Please try messaging us back about your progress, even if it's just with a brief "got the item now, thx". Otherwise we'll have to assume that you have successfully downloaded the item - and the link will expire.

This is an additional safety measure to further reduce chances of takedowns and to ensure that as many people as possible will be able to benefit from these downloads, for as long as possible. We may or may not tweak the duration until downloads expire, depending on how things go.

P.S. effective immediately all direct download links shared thus far as part of the "Re-Seed Requests" (a.k.a. those items that I send users through e-mail), are disabled. New download links will be re-activated depending on the individual user's wish, but still only at our own discretion. 

We've got a Carloz.

* such reasons typically include ISP limitations, inability or impossibility to configure open ports on the router/modem, the filesize of the requested item (e.g. it's a lot easier for us to send you a direct download for The Saboteur, which is 6GB in size, rather than initiate a re-seed on it), and probably a few things more :p
