    I just stumbled upon a torrent site with Tatsunoku vs capcom and i appreciate the uploader for uploading it but the description does not look like something GBATemp would be ok with... Anyway that is my guess. Since GBATemp does not links to torrents is it ok to link torrent to GBATemp?

    Here is the description of the topic:

    Tatsunoko_vs_Capcom_Cross_Generation_of_Heroes[JAP]
    Torrent made by DieForIt

    As long as this site has no torrent links or illegal files I don't see the problem. I've seen many many torrents across the net with links to this place.

    Of course if DieForIt wants to advertise the fact that he shares illegal files around the net, that's his lookout.

    I don't see any link to GBAtemp though, just his name.

    That's all it says here... I don't think I can put a link... Torrents aren't allowed on GBAtemp, right?

    yup, if people were desperate enough to find it I'm sure they would be able to easily.
