What does “Pre” mean?

Posted on August 12, 2008. Filed under: Definitions | Tags: |

Pre, or “Pretime” (in this context) is the time taken between a group releasing something, and it becoming available on a torrent site or NewsGroup, or wherever. Different sources have different pretimes.

It could also refer to the time a release was created, and is useful for instance in deciding which of two releases was first, and hence which to nuke as a dupe.
