1.2.1 and scraping


Recommended Posts

And getting the status from the tracker so that you will know if the torrent was deleted.

It isn't that reliable for finding that out tho. Some trackers don't do scraping, so you won't know if any peers are active without announcing.

Don't rely on a scrape to determine a dead .torrent. Make the .torrent active for a couple hours, and if you didn't have any activity, then it is probably abandoned.

Just because you don't show any seeds/peers doesn't mean there won't be one along. µTorrent isn't the only client that cycles through the seed queue, so there is a worthwhile chance to just keep an idle torrent active just in case one pops up later.
