21                        </div>
22                                <p>Yes. To add trackers to a currently running transfer, go to Inspector > Tracker, and click the plus button (+). To remove them click minus button (-). Multiple trackers can also be added to torrent files you create.

27                                <p>Transmission supports multitracker torrents. These are torrents which have multiple trackers as a fallback in case one doesn't respond. All of a given torrent's trackers are divided into 'Tiers'. Transmission randomly chooses a tracker from Tier 1 until it finds one that works. If it doesn't it moves on to Tier 2, and so on. This system prevents any one tracker being overloaded.

31                        </div>
32                                <p>When Transmission <i>announces</i>, it is updating its presence to the tracker, and asking for more peers. This happens periodically, at the discretion of the tracker, however can be manually invoked via Transfers menu >> Update tracker.

36                        </div>
37                                <p><i>Scraping</i> the tracker simply means asking for information about the swarm itself. For example, the number of peers, seeds etc.
