The BakaBT Wiki!
Welcome to the new BakaBT Wiki. Still under construction.

Welcome to the BakaBT Wiki. We have a lot of useful information here. For general problems (such as with your PC or BitTorrent in general), start with Google. For anything BakaBT-related, take the following steps:

How to search effectively

Step 01: Search our Wiki database. Use phrases like "video playback" or "torrent error" to get better results. You can look at our information index down below or in our FAQ which contains the most commonly asked questions.

Step 02: If the Wiki didn't have what you were looking for, go to our forums and seek answers there. We advise all to do a forum search before posting in a thread in the appropriate location. Chances are your question has already been answered.

Step 03: Ask us on IRC. Our support channel, #bakabt-support is located on irc.rizon.net! Have patience and our staff will get to you as soon as possible. If you do not wish to use IRC, proceed to Step 04.

Step 04: All the above steps failed! What now? Use our help form. When filling out the form, be descriptive and detailed. Have patience. Our staff will try and help out as soon as possible.

NOTE: Only ask for help through one of the above means. Don't ask on the forums or on IRC until you've read the wiki and FAQ. And don't use the help form unless it can't be asked on the forums or on IRC. Spamming all support channels with the same question simultaneously is a sure way to piss site staff off.
