Some songs have since been removed, as I recall; I know that's at least partially the reason. Lemme find the changelog for you.
Found it right here.
I'm sure staff can give you a more in-depth explanation. Hope that helps though.

quite frankly cannot tell the difference in quality from lossless and 192 kbps

The blatant problem with trying to pull a FLAC torrent together is that hundreds of mixes would be left out
There is too much evidence that the general public does not agree with your sentiment

For these new torrents, Liontamer sought out and obtained several lossless files from remixers. Now, since those lossless files have been obtained, what would be the harm in sharing those files with the community in the form of a torrent?
Would it be possible to create torrents for every hundred releases? A torrent for mixes 2501 to 2600 would be great, and follow this pattern.

So in updating my old OCR collection with the newly refinished updates, I've noticed a lot of artist name changes which is really messing with me. The remix changelog doesn't seem to contain info about artist name updates; is there another place I might find this? So far I've been able to match songs up by game/remix title, but a reference chart would be so helpful if one exists. Thanks!

There's no chart and no plans to make a chart, though if someone wants to use their spare time to make one, that's cool.
If you use the search function at the top-right of the site, searching any old ReMixer names should bring up the correct results as well. That said, there are probably some gaps, so if you need help on anyone, ask.
Also in the ID3 tags of all the ReMixes, the URL field is the OCR Artist Profile URL of the ReMixer (or lead ReMixer in the case of a collaboration). Every artist page has their list of Aliases, i.e. other handles the artist has been known by.
e.g. halc (formerly halcyon): http://ocremix.org/artist/4793/halc
e.g. Mattias Häggström Gerdt (formerly Another Soundscape): http://ocremix.org/a...haggstrom-gerdt
e.g. Jillian Aversa (formerly pixietricks): http://ocremix.org/a.../jillian-aversa

In the interest of some general housekeeping and saving of some sanity, could a link to the torrent update changelog be put on the changelog page? It seems kind of buried on the wiki, particularly when you click on that 'What Links Here' link over on the right side and it comes back saying "No pages link here."
Additionally, the changelog page lists quite a few mixes (or non-mixes as the case may be) without OCR release numbers. I've managed to sleuth out quite a few of them on my own via archive.org's cached copies of the site all the way back to April 2000, but for the sake of completionists like me, it would be nice to see them given that number in OCR's history. Heck, even some kind of a placeholder page for the removed mixes instead of a non-informative 404 page would be nice.

The non-numbered ReMixes listed on the Changelog were removed before OCR had a numeric ID system, so they have no ID #. If you want to us to call removed mixes something like #72.5 or what have you to shoehorn it into a numeric order, I can look into it.
A placeholder page for removed mixes based on mix ID sounds interesting. It would be way (way) down the list of things to do, but sounds like something potentially fun to do once the next version of the site is out, and if djp's interested.

One question I have I didn't catch anywhere else, but I noticed that there are tracks missing, but are still hosted here. Any idea why? I noticed because one of the Zombies Ate My Neighbor tracks was missing.
