Id thought i would make a 'hopefully' simple how to upload thing. Well how i do it anyway, feel free to correct me if im wrong anyone, or if there are better ways to do it. Im not very good at this and i learnt through trial and error, so hopefully this is pretty easy to understand coming from someone who has basically no torrent knowledge at all and doesn't understand all the fancy stuff.
Create a separate folder somewhere on your computer that with the files in it that you want to upload, say for instance an album, Place all the songs in this folder plus whatever else needs to be in there, album covers, album info etc etc.
Open up your torrent client, (uTorrent in my case) and click on create new torrent from the file menu.
Click on directories and select the folder with your saved all the files, if you uploading a discography, then there might be a folder with artist name, then sub folders with albums names then each album would obviously have all the files in that folder.
Ensure the tracker properties has the POS tracker in there, as shown in the picture and from underneath the header at the top of the forum page-

Ensure "start seeding" is unchecked and "Private torrent" is checked.
Click on "create and save as" the green bar at the bottom of the box will load across and then you will get a pop up box asking where to save, ensure you save in the same place where all your filess are saved. For one album, save the torrent in the folder with all the files/songs. If you were uploading multiple albums save the file under the first folder where all the subfolders are listed. Hopefully that makes sense.
When you have done that, click save. Then you will be left with the "create new torrent box still up, you can close this now.
Go to whatever forum on the site that your upload fits into, and create a new post. Ensure to name your torrent with
Artist Name - Album Name (Year/Format/Bitrate)
just to make it easy for everyone to see what you have uploaded. When you have created the heading, post some info (i dont know how to do the NFO stuff) about your upload, like a tracklist and maybe a photo of the album cover. Include any other relevant info in the body of the text.
Now click on "choose file" and find where you saved the torrent file, It will have the little green uTorrent symbol next to it, and finish with .torrent
Select the file and click open. Now when everything is right and the file is there, click on the submit post button. Now the important part.
Now you need to click on the "download this torrent file" option and download the file back to yourself sort of.
When you click on the link, it should automatically take you to your torrent client, when asked where you would like to save the torrent, select the exact same location as to where you saved the actual torrent file. This is important. When you find the location click save, this will then start checking the torrent file, if done correctly the file should check through to 100% in a few seconds (depending on the size of the torrent)
Once 100% is reached the file should start seeding and you have now created a torrent.
Hope this helps a little bit, i know its hard when starting out, and im no master, and i probably wont be able to answer many questions, but maybe this will help 1 or 2.
