What does “INTERNAL” mean?

Posted on July 16, 2008. Filed under: Definitions | Tags: |

“INTERNAL” is a scene tag. It is applied to a release for several reasons. An INTERNAL release is not allowed to be posted outside the groups affiliated sites, without the prior permission of that site’s operators.

Classic DVD groups do a lot of INTERNAL releases, as they wont be dupe’d on it. Also lower quality theater rips are done INTERNAL so as not to lower the reputation of the group, or due to the amount of rips done already. Some INTERNAL releases still trickle down to IRC/Newsgroups/Torrent Sites, it usually depends on the title and the popularity.

When a release group is said to go “internal”, it means the group are only releasing the movies to their members and site ops. This is in a different context to the usual definition.

Torrent sites or other communities may create “Internal” collections of files, or non-scene releases, such as unusual requests by users. These sites may also create “packs” of scene releases, such as several films from a series, and release it as “internal”.

Not all internal releases will get pred. They won’t always even be tagged int. This means they do not always show up in predbs.

Thank you. And I don’t see in the scenerelease.nfo how it is supposed to be used correctly. I’ve seen it used in different parts of the name.
tvshow.s01e01.iNTENAL.720p.HDTV.x264.mkv
and
tvshow.s02e01.720p.HDTV.iNTERNAL.x264.mkv
as well as completely by
tvshow.s03e01.720p.HDTV.x264.iNTERNAL-

I’m sure there must be rule about this… anybody know please,?

In these cases it may be that the “group name” related to a tracker. Trackers usually frown on advertising other trackers so the group tags get removed.

Yeah, it does seem that there’s no standard way of ordering tags in scene releases..

I can’t see anything in the Scene Rules about it, anyway.

With tags like INTERNAL and LIMITED and stuff, there seems to be no pattern, as you’ve shown. However, i guess it’s unspoken convention to use the 720p.BluRay.x264 combination, in that order, because that’s how I always see it.

Would be interested to know if anyone can find this mentioned in the rules for a scene other than highdefinition…

Its a good idea to use iNTERNAL, PROPER, LiMiTED tags before DVDRip tag and after year tag. Here is an example;

Deep.1977.iNTERNAL.DVDRip.XviD-TURKiSO

also its ok to use iNT instead of full word.

Deep.1977.iNT.DVDRip.XviD-TURKiSO

Hope this helps :)

Sometimes internal is used when there are issues with the rip. An example:

De.Slimste.Mens.Ter.Wereld.S10E10.FLEMISH.INTERNAL.PDTV.x264-BRiGAND
“missing a few seconds due to bad weather, blame God!”
