Uploader Rules & Guidance

1337x 2007
1337x was started to fill an apparent void where it seemed there was a lack of quality conscience ad free torrent sites. We strive to maintain a community atmosphere with a helpful staff who quickly verify all uploaded content and up-loaders.

1337x 2020
Over the years things have changed slightly. As we grew we introduced ads to the main torrent site but only when not logged in to help with costs. We have also added many more rules. Unfortunately these rules were necessary because people abused our trust and kindness. We have however always maintained a stance of "Sharing is caring" and firmly believe in helping to maintain a safe environment for our users and to help deliver content free from spam and ads. We still maintain a community atmosphere and the heart of that can be found in our chat-room.

Hello and welcome. You have been linked to this page because you wish to upload on 1337x.


First you need to obtain Image status. Please read this page in full and follow the instructions at the end.


PLEASE READ THIS PAGE IN FULL. THERE ARE IMPORTANT RULES CONTAINED WITHIN AND INSTRUCTIONS AT THE END

You will need a torrent client. We recommend Qbittorrent. It uses minimal resources and is open source as well as being multi platform.

If you do not know how to create a .torrent file and upload to site please read this guide or watch this video

Please do not use more than 15 trackers and remember to leave a blank space between each tracker like so.

Do not use any trackers with the domain itzmx.com these are banned on most public sites and will get you demoted or worse

Please choose up to 15 trackers from this list.The list is automatically updated daily with good working trackers and the preferred method.

This site is useful for checking tracker up-time and helping to select working trackers.

Another method is to navigate to the main site and in the featured section select a Image upload. Click on the "Tracker List" tab and copy up to 15 trackers like so, copy them to notepad and ensure there is a space between each one then cut and paste them to your torrent client.

1337x read the stats from the first tracker in the list. Although it is important to ensure that all the trackers in your list have good uptime this is especially true for the first one. Please make sure to use a working tracker because failure to do so will result in your torrent always showing 0 seeds 0 leechers.

Universal rules - for all torrents


Images

IMGUR DOES NOT WORK ON THE 1337X TORRENT INDEX PLEASE DO NOT USE IT

In some sections the requirement of a screenshot is mandatory in others it is appreciated but not required. You will find out what sections require them towards the end of this guide. We have a white list of prefered image hosts. You do not have to use this but if you are planning on using one not on the list, it must comply with the following conditions.

The image hosting site must not be on the ban list. The ban list can be found under the white list. No money making image hosts allowed. Any image host where you have to click a link to view the image is also banned. Any image host that pops up ads is also banned. Host ads should be no more than 5 but this will not be strictly enforced so long as the ads are responsible. No ads serving malware. Any hosts with malware ads will be added to the ban list straight away.

3rd party site links

Trial uploaders are no longer allowed to link to any 3rd party site or offsite places in folder names or torrent descriptions. The exception to this is sites like IMDB, TVDB, goodreads and similar sites used for file information.

You are allowed to include a text file inside your torrent with a link to your site.
If you are including a text file to a 3rd party site then the siteMUST comply with the following,

No excessive ads
Strictly no ads serving malware (You get one chance and one chance only)
The site MUST offer .torrent files and not just direct download links and/or file-locker links. (Exceptions - Server / seedbox / vpn providers, subtitle sites, Imdb/Tvbd or anything similar)
The site MUST be related to file-sharing or file information.
You MUST tell staff if you plan to include a text file link to your site.

ANY TRIAL UPLOADER THAT BREAKS THESE CONDITION'S LOSES ALL LINKING PRIVILEGES - All torrents will be deleted and you may or may not be allowed to continue to upload with no links.
There is no second chances. It is up to you to make sure the site you link to complies with this. If you cannot then do not link to it.

When and if a Trial Uploader is promoted to Trusted Uploader they will be allowed to include links in their descriptions. The linked site still has to comply with the rules above.

Section specific rules


Movie uploads

We require a minimum of one visible screenshot in your description for every movie upload. These screenshots are to be from the video you are uploading. Using the same screenshot for 1080p/720p or any different resolution or codec is not appropriate. Cover/Title posters are appreciated but do not count as a screenshot. Movie uploads must not contain any zip, rar or any other file archive formats. Movie torrents are also subject to the universal rules above.

Tv, Anime & Documentary uploads

These sections do not require screenshots but screenshots are appreciated. When including screenshots they must comply with our universal rules above. Tv & Anime uploads must not contain any zip, rar or any other file archive formats. Tv & Anime torrents are also subject to the universal rules above. If for some unknown special reason you need to use rar/zip's you must get staff permission.

Other Section

Uploads in this section must have a description and not just offsite links. Rar/zips are sometimes needed for certain things like plugins etc, Make sure to get staff permission first. Screenshots are welcome but not mandatory. Historically this section has been a bit spammy - Please don't make it worse.

Applications & Game uploads

Anyone wishing to upload software or games will have to prove they are trusted elsewhere. This will ideally be another torrent site but release blogs and other forms of file sharing services might be accepted. We refuse 95% of software uploader applications so be prepared for a refusal. You will also have to demonstrate you have enough knowledge to check software for malware.

It is the responsibility of the uploader to check software for viruses prior to uploading. If you do not know how to check if a file is clean and what false positives are then either learn first or pick another category to upload in. Sites like Virus Total and Hydrid Analysis are excellent resources. Tools like Virtualbox and VMware are awesome for checking bigger files. You will be expected to demonstrate Staff are not here to check files for you. Staff will however randomly check files of uploaders at all levels. If any are found to have infected files you will be demoted and/or banned.

XXX uploads

We require a minimum of one visible screenshot in your description for every XXX video upload. These screenshots are to be from the video you are uploading. Using the same screenshot for 1080p/720p or any different resolution or codec is not appropriate. Cover/Title posters are appreciated but do not count as a screenshot. XXX uploads must not contain any zip, rar or any other file archive formats.

It is hard to find image hosts that allow porn. Therefore we are a little more forgiving when it comes to the XXX section. Please do not use an image host under the banned list here. We have a white list of preferred XXX image hosts. You are free to use your own host but it must comply with the universal rules above.

Before you submit the application it should look like this. Application's that do not follow this context will likely be denied.


Good luck!!!!!

If you are denied

It could be for a number of reasons. Staff might deny you if they feel they require some more information from you or they feel you have not supplied the right information in the application. If this happens FEAR NOT. You may come to the chatroom and discuss the denial with staff. This will normally involve a brief interview. You may join the chat room and ask for a staff member. Staff members are not always active so expect to have to idle for a bit until one becomes available.
Do not whisper or private message staff. Please talk in open chat. Please explain straightaway that you have already applied even if you have been denied.

If you are accepted as trial

You will be subject to all rules contained on this page. You must only upload in the sections you requested. Any major deviations from what you requested on the application from must be pre approved by staff. You will have 48hrs from being accepted to upload your first torrent. This will only count for your very first torrent on 1337x. Accounts that are dormant for months or years might be demoted for security.

Any trial uploaders that uploads software, games, rar, zip, iso or .exe files without prior staff agreement will be demoted / disabled without warning and the torrents deleted.

1337X IS A HIGHLY MODERATED TORRENT SITE, IF YOU ARE HERE TO TRY AND UPLOAD SPAM, GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES, INFECTED FILES OR ANYTHING ELSE DEEMED "BAD" YOU WILL JUST WASTE YOUR TIME.
