View Full Version : Share Ratio Grace Period?

Hi! I'm a new user here and I came for the GD videos. My upload is capped by Comcast at about 40kB/sec. Even so, I have been able to maintain an excellent share ratio at Jerome's and Lossless Legs by diligent long-term seeding.

The problem is that these video torrents are humongous in size, so it is going to take a long time to achieve a decent ratio after I download even a few of them. The FAQs say that we are supposed to maintain a share ratio of at least .5, and I hope to do better than that eventually. But even getting there could be difficult until after I catch up on the videos here I am lusting after.

So is there a grace period after my initial flurry of downloading during which I can seed my way out of the hole I want to dig for myself?

Few people actually give a shit about share ratios.

Yep, you have a very, very long grace period since we don't enforce a share ratio here. We just ask that you do your best to share - via bittorrent, Vines, trading, covers, freebies, whatever. Please just do your best to share.

You can always ask for a trade or B&P in the thread. Those Deadheads are pretty cool and they generally try to help others out.

There are a couple ballbreakers around here but generally no one cares. Hey Lynne, could we make it an option so that people can turn ratios off and on?

Been hoping for this option as I have long since killed post counts as well
