     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.

    22                                 <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 from being overloaded.
    23                                 <p>It is not possible to edit the tracker entries.

    33                                 <p><i>Scraping</i> the tracker simply means asking for information about the swarm itself. Information typically received involves the total number of seeders, total number of leechers, and total number of complete downloads of the data.
