Thank you for all the content and effort you bring to IPT
With the recent significant additions/changes in the sites category structure we have put together a forum topic with the criteria for each category. Specifically, the TV, new CAM and Bluray sections to clarify the content that should go in each.
We hope this information will help all of our uploaders and especially our future Trial Uploaders.
It is a basis to build on. It is does not cover every single possibility of "What if...?" and we welcome your feedback, input and discussion for anything that can make it more user-friendly, accurate, etc.
This is one of the topics that we ask you periodically check for updates. Forums > Uploader Resources > Category Guidelines: Category Criteria
