So you want to be a verified uploader?

So you want to be a verified uploader?

To meet the requirements for VUL status to be awarded:
1) You MUST be a member of KAT at least one month in order to prove you can follow site-rules.

2) You MUST have a minimum of 20 active torrents that have been uploaded over a four week period from your first eligible upload. Torrents older than 5 months are not counted. You need to show to us that you can keep them seeded. (Do you need help getting more seeds? Try the ... uploader Program or SeedBoxes Forum. )

2.1) This does not include stopping for a short while i.e doing a few ups and then doing a few more a month later. You can not upload a torrent and have a 3 week break then rush to upload again because your first torrent hit 1 month. At the start of uploading you need to show consistency.

3) All of your torrents MUST be seeded, even if there is only one seed, they will not be considered eligible. This is to show that you can create torrents that work with our system and can track properly. We have a 10 Tracker Server limit so please do not use more or the extras will be removed, KAT also adds trackers that we know work well so you should try to use these if possible.

4) All your uploads MUST have correct descriptions, you should try to include DVD covers, screenshots, and media info such as language, sub-titles and bit rates. It is in your own interest to include as much detail as possible, the more detail you give the more likely people will download your torrents. We also have a 100% completion system for torrent descriptions, when you fill out all the description sections as a VUL you have the opportunity to gain a rep-score bonus of 5 points for each torrent.

5) Some of your uploads should have feedback from other users, this is to show that you are creating good quality uploads that others are happy with. If no feedback is present the moderator carrying out your VUL review will check some of your torrents.

6) You should be posting torrents that you have created yourself, this can be scene, P2P or your own work but you should be creating the torrent and uploading yourself. You CAN NOT post torrents from KAT or other sites that you have not created. That is known as dumping and these will be an instant decline even for just one dump.
Please remember that if you are going to dump other peoples work you are NOT eligible for VUL. You are NOT allowed to change the titles (to include your own name etc...), this is classed as retagging and rather than be verified you will be declined, most likely be muted and told to fix what you've done!
(The no dumping rule was added to the VUL agenda, so if you spot an older VUL member dumping, they are grandfathered in to the old agenda and they are the exception)

7) Your recent account history will be taken into consideration, if you have been in trouble for a rule violation recently some time will be given so you can learn from your mistake, read the site-rules.

8) Your upload history will be looked at, to gain verified status you should have a steady stream of uploads. But torrents that were created over 5 months ago will not be considered, If you have stopped uploading you will be expected to upload fresh torrents in order to gain status.

9) By requesting verified status you are agreeing that you intend to regularly upload to KAT, if you do not upload for a period of 5 months you will be in danger of having status removed! You will be sent a PM by a member of the Staff/Moderating team giving you 1 month in which to rectify the problem, if nothing is done by the end of the 6 month period your status will be removed and you'll need to start uploading again in order for it to be returned.
To go along with this rule there is an achievement that any user / group with 300+ uploads will be awarded 'VUL for life', as long as there has been some account activity with in two years these accounts are safe from the inactivity policy. This new achievement will also be awarded to any user / group who have uploads posted here by other users but still make a significant contribution to the torrenting world.

10) This is a new rule sought of added as an update to rule 9. All new Verified Uploaders will continue to upload (per month) 20 torrents minimum spread over the month for 3 following months from being verified. this does not include doing a 40 one month and having a break for the next month, there is no cutting corners with this. If you want to be serious as a Verified Uploader... Now is the time!

Moderator's discretion reserves the right to decline your request if they think you do not yet meet the requirements for VUL status. They may set a date for you to reapply for VUL, if a date is not given you may reapply after one week.

If you think you qualify for verified status? You can request a VUL review from your profile page.
Good luck.

There are many points of guidance and examples here in this thread.
