have you found that your search results at the piratebay are just not coming up with a lot more then you are looking for? well, i might just have made your day. the piratebay has released a "cheat sheet" for searching on the site. and here it is in all its glory:
Matches any torrent with the two terms star and trek occurring in name or description.
name:star name:trek or name:(star trek) Matches any torrent with the two terms star and trek occurring in the name.
"star trek" Matches any torrent containing the phrase star trek in name or description.
startrek Matches any torrent containing the term startrek. Will not match the two terms star and trek. The same thing applies when searching for the two terms star and trek, it will not match on the term startrek.
name:(stur~0.7 truk~0,7) Fuzzy query.
Examples searching in fields
name:("38 Irish Drinking Songs")
Matches any torrent with the phrase 38 Irish Drinking Songs in it's name.
description:mp3 Matches any torrent with mp3 in it's description.
uploader:tia* Matches any torrent that has been uploaded by users starting their name with tia.
torrent_id:3266892 Matches the torrent with id of 3266892.
- Specifying no field at all defaults to name and description.
* - NOT. For example Lost -("in translation")
* + MUST
* * Wildcard can be suffix only: enter* but not *prise. Queries like a* may result in too many answers, making the search quit and return 0 hits. In those cases you need to narrow it down, for example ab*.
