Is it a show you completed here recently? If so, just reopen the torrent file and point it at the completed folder. It will check to make sure everything is there and then start seeding.

If you downloaded it elsewhere...I suggest you read through the Audio Bit Torrent Seeding Policy (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/faq.php?faq=new_faq_item#faq_rules) and make sure it conforms with our seeding rules.

hi, yes i recently downloaded the show from this site. when i reopen the torrent file and point it at the completed folder can i still download other shows from this site as i am doing this, or does the BitTorrent only allow one stream at a time?
thanks.

You should be able to seed this show and download others at the same time. What program are you using? You will have to double check your settings to see how it is set up - sometimes the default setting only allows 2-3 torrents going at once...but this is easy to change.
