The Warez scene, often referred to as The Scene, is an underground community of people that specialize in the distribution of copyrighted material, including television shows and series, movies, music, music videos, games (all platforms), applications (all platforms), ebooks, and pornography. When releasing material, scene groups must first encode/pack properly so as not to be “nuked”. After encoding/packing, they upload the files to a topsite. Topsite is a term used by the warez scene to refer to underground, highly secretive, high-speed FTP servers used by release groups and couriers for distribution, storage, and archiving of warez releases. When the upload is complete, they execute a command that causes the name and category of the release to be announced in the topsite’s IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel. The time that the file is first released to the topsite is called the “Pre”. The time between the “Pre” and when it is released another private site or torrent tracker is called the “pretime”. This is typically measured in seconds or minutes. “Traces” basically compare the pretimes for all the private sites and torrent trackers. You obviously want the lowest or fastest pretimes as that means you get the new releases and material the soonest.
