What is the difference between this and stopping the torrent?
I am also a former uTorrent user, and "Pause" is something I still miss to this day. "Pause" is something that I intend to "Resume". "Stop" is something I do not. It just makes a huge difference when it comes to usability of anything in-progress. And seeding/downloading is a continuous act.
When uTorrent got bought and people started to migrate elsewhere, I remember heated discussions on qBittorrent's design philosophy in this regard: "Paused is Paused. Stop means you don't want to seed later, so you can delete it from the client, it doesn't make a difference."
Please enable Categories in settings
That's an unintuitive workaround. And only one category can be added per torrent.
There is no pause event in the Bittorrent protocol, there's started, completed or stopped.
BEP-21 event=paused (which is perfectly named from the technical/protocol point of view) exist.
But like most of us don't care about what IO operations happen when we pause a music in our media player, we don't really care about the protocol events here either.
