Is re-upload allowed? (months after delete)
I had a folder built up for Beautiful Guy X. (vids 10-20 years old, curated & re-formatted by me)
A long time ago, I torrented it.
People enjoyed it. (positive comments)
After many months of life, a surprising Copyright claim and the torrent was deleted.
Question: Will I be breaking GT Rules if, now after many months more, I re-torrent it?
I'm aware it might end in another copyright delete. I just want people to enjoy it. The only question here is whether this action is allowed by GT Rules / admins.
P.S. GT does have a few other torrents for the same guy & producer. (we're NOT talking about one of the studios that bans everything)

I suggest you had to write from helpdesk: https://www.gaytorrent.ru/helpdesk.php
@blablarg18 When a torrent has been DMCA copyright removed, instead of being removed, it should remain in the database, but be marked "DMCA" and not be downloadable. In that way, people would not continue to re-upload the same files.
IN FACT.. I am sure that some unscrupulous trolls have existing torrents taken down by DMCA claims, just so THEY can go ahead and re-upload those files and get credit for them. I am almost certain that this has happened quite a bit, because over the years, I have had my torrents removed for supposed DMCA violations.. yet several other sizes and formats of the same file remained on the site! For instance.. someone would upload a 5GB rip of the DVD "Horse Hung Hippies Hitchhiking in Honduras" and I would upload an 800 mb version of the same movie in another format. My upload would be removed with a DMCA claim, yet the 5GB DVD rip remained on the site. Seems probably that the uploader of the 5GB version did not want my 900 mb version on the site competing for downloads. While on that topic, it's probably not a wise thing to be posting DVD rips as they are clones of the product and not re-encoded, lower quality versions. I would like to think that someone who really liked one of my small, low quality uploads.. would go out and purchase the DVD in pristine quality, with directors notes, bonus scenes, backstage footage, cumshot compilations, model profiles, etc. But instead.. the most valued members of this site.. the uploaders.. are all in cyber jail for 3 months for uploading things that nobody ever said they could not upload, and still have not said they can't upload. Ain't dat a bitch? I wonder how many of those precious uploaders will do their torrenting elsewhere rather than wait 3 months to have their shackles taken off,, and potentially be hit with another 3 month cyber jail sentence? How am I supposed to know if it is safe to upload "Seventy-Six Sissies Singing Sinatra in Spandex"? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdd6q0pW4DM
@lololulu19 The answer to the question, it seems, is that there is too much friction around uploading & DMCA right now to do something like this. Field of bullets whizzing too hot. I didn't know, so thank you!
@john32123666 To be clear: I wasn't asking about the copyright issue. Only about the GT upload rules.
