Like has been said many times...I think maybe there should be a share ratio requirement, unless it is a CONFIRMED trader that does B & P. However in regards to this persons share ratio, there is actaully one thing that pissed me off more than the ratio itself, and I am sure there is something Lynne or another moderator could do something about...why the hell is someone allowed to be connected to 76 torrents at one time? At that number, and I don't care what your bandwith is, your upload rate is going to be pathetic. This dude should take "Chachi420"s tag line and hang himself with it...

P.S. And by the time I am done with the two torrents I am downloading, my share ratio will again be above 1.0.

you counted all that shit? :lol:


This guy is funny though... maybe he just wanted to see how much he could open at once before his computer crashes... maybe it's dragging so badly now, he can't close any of them.. it's just stuck! :lol: what a rube

I'm gonna try a new announce script. Someone holler real loud at me if you start getting errors. I have the old one saved, of course, but the only way to test tracker stuff is to go live with it. It adds another mySQL call into the script for people with ratios less than .10. So, we'll try this out for now.

It will limit him to only downloading 10 torrents at a time (it shouldn't affect any torrents only being seeded). I want to try that limit first since it shouldn't affect a whole lot of people.

U2Lynne
2006-08-22, 05:08 PM
OK, I just kicked the guy off the tracker. So, the next time his torrents try to 'announce' to the tracker, it should only let 10 torrents on and then give him an error for all the others.

Yeah, I started and stopped mine a few times and all is well. However, I notice that tenten2003 hasn't come back on and his torrents should have announced again by now. :eek: I'll be watching Technobabble for while to see if anyone posts about having connections issues. (Although all seems fine for a bit over 6000 peers. So, who knows what is up with his.)

It still gives an image to the members that its ok to uberleech but you can only uber 10 if you are .10 or less on the ratio.

Is that really such a good thing i wonder?

I still don't see him on any torrents. But if you saw him on at one point, Lucas, then that is good.

KoolKat, before I actually post anything about only leeching so many torrents per ratio (I can make it different for different low ratios), I want to make sure it works. So, I'm making it real loose right now to test it out (basically, he is my test case :D). Unfortunately, I have to test out tracker stuff live to see how the site will handle it.

U2Lynne,
I think this Uberleecher has been fixed, but I noticed a couple of others with long torrent lists. It was clearly a case of ignorance, as their response to a message from me that this was not the right way to use the Den, was to politely apologise and cut back the torrent list. If you have a means to track excessive torrent dls, a message explaining the situation might be all that's needed. Of course with the new restrictions in the tracker, this is a problem that will die on it's own accord, so it might not be worth the trouble.

Actually, I did a quick database query to list the top users on the site on the most torrents. Most of them were on to upload (the name of the show is in green if they are a seeder, in blue if they are a leecher). But, I think you are right in that is is ignorance that makes them think it's a good thing to leech or seed so many shows at a time. I think I'm going to post a message on the first page about it and see if it changes things.

Some of these "uberleechers" must be coming over from the ZOMB site. This seems to be the norm over there.

I thought this was completely insane. I posted in their forums about this practice and met with some opposition. Even the mods over there seem to do this. There explanation was they wanted to keep torrents alive. "Seriously, how long does a torrent need to live?", I asked.

I found myself on a couple torrents that were fairly old with only one seeder. This seeder was seeding 70+ torrents and uploading at .01 - .02 KB/sec.

IMHO, users like this should not be welcome on torrent sites. I commend the mods here in taking care of this problem.

Thank you =)

The discussion on the zomb site was not about someone trying to download 76 shows at once. It was about what some people considered was sharing too many shows at once.

Being an ubersharer is far different than being an uberleecher.

What you are talking about is the opposite of what is being discussed here. You posted at Zomb that you were leeching from somebody who was seeding 70+ shows.
What is being discussed here is people leeching loads of shows.
At Zomb people can only download 4 torrents at a time in user class. This number goes up as the ranks climb. We also enforce a strict ratio system to stop people leeching and not sharing back at least a reasonable amount.
If your ratio falls within the ranges below, you will receive a warning message from the system:

» 01 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.01
» 02 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.05
» 05 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.20
» 10 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.40
» 20 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.50
» 40 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.60
» 80 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.70
» 100 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.75
» 200 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.80
» 300 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.85
» 400 GB downloaded with a ratio less than or equal to 0.90

We are also aware that people seeding a lot of shows can reduce the speed on each individual torrent - if there are peers on each torrent. Some users choose to seed lots of shows, to ensure that their upload is maxed out and so that they can share as much as they can. It's frustrating to have only a few torrents open and not be able to max your upload because the leechers have a slower connection, or problems connecting. So some people choose to have a lot of torrents running rather than having to sit and constantly check their client and stop/start torrents as required.

Rather than criticise people who share, try being polite and appreciative of their sharing, without which you may not get the torrent at all.
And rather than getting a dig in at a site where you have downloaded a lot of quality stuff, read the topic and contents of a thread before shooting your keyboard off. This is called "Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread". This is a problem that is taken care of by the staff and the system coding at Zomb as I described above.

Your issue could be taken care of by messaging the seeder, asking if they could help you out and letting them know how fast you are able to download from them. Then they can stop whatever torrents they need to, if they can and want to. Remember these people are sharing, and I do not feel it is a site staff's place to tell them how to utilise their own connection, as long as they are sharing and keeping within the site's requirements.

i am always amused by those that do crazy things , to have more than a few torrents going , ( i max at 4 ) i normally keep to two torrents going at a time as my max upload without crashing my isp,s modem is around 250 connections and a 40 to 45kb/s upload speed , i want torrents to download fast and to at least try and keep the torrent speed up ,to have so many going at once is crazy as it means the speed of the torrent slows right down to a pointless level , i am glad the maximum has been dropped down to prevent idiots slowing everything down , it seems the team here are on the ball

so a big thanks to the staff here for keeping a good site good

I think the point is that nobody has the right to dictate how people use their connection. It is fair enough to limit downloads, etc to limit leeching or hit & running. But to tell a user how to upload is just being authoritarian, unless you are paying for their connection.
It is fine to express an opinion and give advice as to what you think is right. But others have their own opinions and they are valid opinions. Personally, I think that torrents do work better if people do not overseed. However, I sometimes leave many running overnight to ensure that my upload speed is maxed out all night. It means some of my torrents may not run at what some consider "decent" speed. But it does mean that I am sharing and that the leecher will complete the show - even if it takes a few days.
Again, if a user PMs me or posts in a Forum about the speed I am sharing, I will try to accommodate them if I am around to stop and start torrents...

By hook or by crook, this is my opinion and I'm sticking to it whether it is liked or disliked, agreed or disagreed with, read or unread for that matter.......

Ratio here is dictated by the user themselves.....respectable is 1.00 which shows you are giving at least what you're taking[regardless of bandwidth because that point is mute and a poor argument at that]....so use it respectably.....this site and ALL other torrent sites need leechers but they DON'T need BAD leechers to survive.....they have a core community that cares enough no matter what their situation to seed whatever they download no matter how long it takes them....they do because they care, NOT because they have too. If you don't care, then don't, you can always become a member of Demonoid or a dump site that feels the same way you do......FREEWILL baby, take it or leave it...... :) :)

Thanks all for letting me rant .......it helped.

I'm assume they did. I told them i wanted nothing to do with their site and to delete my account as there was no option to do it myself, I deleted all the torrents I uploaded (as is my right to do so), and I went back and blanked out all my forum posts.

Such a shame as it is a nice looking site, but I just didn't trust much I downloaded there. People changing original archive files and re-distributing them, people seeding 50+ shows at a time who obviously don't have the bandwidth, getting a lot of criticism to my posts when I was only pointing out that some of the practices over there are typically frowned upon in the trading community. Not to mention torrents with commercially released content in them. :nono: 99% of what is over there comes from TTD or DaD anyway. To each their own....I don't want any part of it.

My sentiments exactly especially when it comes to people who post there making it appear as if they're the original source of the upload. I started challenging some guy, with the handle of UnkArl, about a particular Tori Amos torrent that came from another tracker. I asked him why he removed original artwork, putting his "courtesy" screenshots, and not giving credit to the original source/uploader. He basically said "it's none of my business and torrents get re-distributed anyway". Well he apparently tried doing the same thing on DaD and the original source busted him.

The staff on Zomb are a bunch of hypocrites too. One of them started asking about why I was uploading from different ips. I guess they saw I was capable of upload speeds as high as 2Mb/s from one ip. I explained that for one of the ips I had T3 access at my school but am discreet about using it. After they got the explanation, they promoted me to high speed uploader (as if that actually means anything). I thought about why they had asked me questions and decided stop uploading there ever since the inquiry. Well a couple of weeks later, after no activity my part at Zomb, I was demoted to my original status. I was right about my suspicions that there might be something fishy with Zomb 'cause of the questions they had posed.

As far as offending torrents, I tried posting about trading do's and don'ts only to be ridiculed and labeled a whiner. With such an enormous staff to user ratio I would figure that stuff like that would be under control anyway....but maybe your were too busy trying to sort which of your 100+ seeds was not "maximizing" your upload :lol:

Actually, in our FAQ, we do ask that you try to achieve a 1:1 ratio because that is how bittorrent works best (if everyone downloads and then shares the same amount). We just don't ban people for low ratios. We recognize that this site is more than just a bt site. If you look at user's profile, if they have offered b&ps before or started vines here, those are all listed in their profile. This allows people to take an overall look at a user before deciding if they want to open a window for them or trade with them.
We also don't allow commercially released material. If you saw something, why didn't you report it?
We are constantly checking stuff, but can't know and spot everything.
I can't emphasize this enough. Being a mod myself, I'll say that we rely a lot on users reporting threads/torrents that have commercially available material in them. Mods don't have the time to go through every single upload to the site and check to see if anything listed is also available commerially. Not every mod is familiar with every artist and every album that that artist has put out. I think everyone has a responsibility to try to help keep our music trackers free of commercial releases (if that is the goal of that tracker). I have a feeling if one of us got shut down, that most likely they would then come after the rest of us and then there would be no more (public) torrent sites.

Wow, sounds like a place I don't need to be apart of........respectable places are much more attractive because the folks who run the joint actually care about the users.....like TTD and DIME. Following the rules/guidelines and following blindly are two very different ideals......I have heard good and bad about ZOMB but when I looked at it there was nothing that I couldn't get either here or at DIME and since these places keep a respectable house, I would decline ANY invite to ZOMB or any other place that would ban a user for speaking freely about his good/ or bad experience on another site............

Deadmarsh, good luck with the ratio thing.....if it takes a thread like this to "kindly" inspire you to raise it to a respectable status maybe a place like Demonoid or Komodo Village would be better suited to your needs, they don't seem to mind hit n run leechers at all.

Your offer to raise your ratio, "after" it was mentioned and your comment on it scrutinized, is a prime example of a user who uses sites other than his home one like a public restroom....if it isn't the one in your home, why be clean, someone else has to clean the mess.....you're being "nice guy" about it is nothing short of "song and dance" for personal PR. That is just "my" opinion though and reflects no-one else's views but my own.

I don't know freezer personally but an awesome Robert Palmer torrent came out of his hands to ours and I respect the respect he showed the artists music and career. Sharing for free to get music out and sharing to try and make a name for yourself at another's expense are 2 more totally unlike matters. The boot scene can be touchy at best no matter where you go but if people are questioning the validity of origins/content discrepancies on torrents @<hidden> Zomb then maybe mods/admin should be checking deeper to see what is coming out of their site[instead of questioning another sites issues in posts in their home forum].....taking liberties that aren't yours to take seems self-defeating at best if they are not handled promptly.....on rare occassion I have added info to a file or helped distinguish correct info so that artwork can reflect it along with the info...but I would NEVER tamper with something I got in anyway that disrespects the taper, artist, or the site allowing it to be offered. Folks @<hidden> Zomb either need to get a bit more proactive in the content in question or suffer more of these public complaints from within the trading community at their own expense.

I forgot to mention that if members/ex-members complain in other forums about former sites it isn't just that member's fault. Admin/mods have a responsibility regardless of outside circumstances like life/family/jobs, if they ignore it, then they shouldn't be part of the site. DIME is very proactive about their managing of their site and I have seen the same care here. Members are also another valuable resource and if they ignore junk they see they shouldn't be members either.

Community is what keeps these sites clean and safe.......if the community is divided then it will not live out a happy existance......guaranteed.

Jetrell69, that's so funny...people who like Zomb especially have said that we have the nicest and most helpful staff around :hmm:
(you don't see this happening on Zomb http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=23718)

could you point me towards any post in that thread where a TTD staff member was being mean or unhelpful?

Every site has people who love it and people who hate it - here, Zomb, Dime - every site. As staff here I can sympathize with the staff of any other site and the complaints they get and the difficulties they face in running their sites.

My point was that kind of behavior from users would not ne tolerated on Zomb. Didn't mean that TTD staff actually did something wrong.

There seem to be a lot people with the 'I know everything, I am the greatest' attitude around here and things should be done like they see it.
Like Roshambo & co bitching about how some Zomb users utilise their own bandwidth.

@<hidden>
Personally I never change any of the files for anything I download with the very rare exception actually adding some useful information to the txt-file (like a track name which was missing etc.). But it also seems rather stupid to cry about polluting the trade pool when somebody happens to download a show and for example re-names the tracks properly and then seeds it on another tracker. Oh no, the trading pool is now contaminated, we must bash out the evildoer... :rolleyes:

Oh and, if you TTD people don't appreciate my ratio improving effort just let me know and I can stop it if that is better :wave:

Deadmarsh,

I didn't point you out as a person who was contaminating the trading pool and if you are fixing track titles I don't see anything wrong with actual honest corrections when it comes to mislabeled song titles or info. Just make sure when you post it you "give" credit where it is due and make a note of the corrections so people know you weren't doing anything malicious and things should be fine.

We all seem to be "the know everything people" you so kindly speak of at one time or another but you are discussing behaviours & ettiquette that have fairly simple origins and fixes.....I myself have been wrong as you and most everyone else who is actually "human" enough to admit it so your soapbox stand on that isn't gonna hold any water with my observations in this discussion. Cause & Effect are never "singular" components, they are symbiotic in nature and relate like water & ice. The problem lies in people not being able to agree that differences actually exist [which doesn't make any one person bad] and how to fix them amicably for all parties. Common ground needs to be found that serve the whole, not the one.

Don't blame "you TTD people" about the ratio thing, I made my own comment, so pick me out but don't generalize just to be snide. How anyone chooses to use their bandwidth is really up to them but in ANY trading community that shares for free, sharing back what you got for free is a basic fundementally accepted courtesy.....low bandwidth is NO excuse for poor sharing as I am sure you would agree, regardless of vines, loops, & b&p's which are stand alone bonuses to these communities, on-line community membership works better when ALL of it's members are sharing equally to make BT work as it should. If you don't want to play nice, don't, freewill is a choice too but in places where there are expectations that you decide you don't need to meet don't point people out for calling you out on it, you ask for it when you admit publicly you choose not to do so.

Here is an example of a good community problem solved through common grounds serving the whole:

In January of this year a Robert Palmer "Band In Boston" radio promo live vinyl by Warner Bros. was put up on DIME only to be banned. There were alot of Palmer fans who were disappointed that this show would not be snatched by us.....TheCommish, who is a member here as well, sent a CD via mail to a few of us who he KNEW would appreciate it. It was a vinyl archive shared with him by FREE_Forever. As I listened to it finally for the first time I realised that there was no logical and legal reason for the ban. I went to the DIME archives and searched out the ban, then I searched out the vinyl's history and presented my case to the mods [with the blessing of the above members when I asked them first]. Low and behold not only was the upload allowed it was noted by the mod that the original ban was actually categorized wrong and that indeed I had done my homework properly to allow this upload under DIME rules already in place. BIG THANKS to NightShifted, the DIME mod that I had the pleasure of working with, he has a hard enough job and one I earned a better respect for after this.

Robert Palmer fans there like myself were overjoyed and thankful. The ONLY corrections Commish made were alternate re-tracking of the set for different tastes[all of which were included in the torrent] and artwork which was redesigned[with seperate versions of each included to reflect the alternate trackings] by FREE_forever and his talented wife personally. ALL of this was done with FREE's consent "before" the torrent ever uploaded. Now THAT is how such a situation should happen on any trading site if there is such a problem.....community members working with mods/admin to ensure the trading pool etiquette and legal issues are met beforehand so that EVERYONE can enjoy the fruit of that labor.

Yeah,all very nice but this thread shouldn't even be mentioning other sites & what they do...or don't.

It was an uberleechers naming thread for this site ,TTD ,thats all.
I think we should keep it for that & let other trackers be dealt with how they deal with it ;)

Back to here:
Personally for ratio control i think that when you are below .2 a big stick should come out of your monitor & bop you on the head...... :lol
Seriously
I don't agree with limiting the number you can get if you fall below a certain ratio.You should have a point where if you don't share,we won't.

I can also see the problems that a new member who may of just joined to get a dying torrent would find it difficult to reach that ratio point.That has to be taken into consideration with an e-mail or something.But its not hard to work out who's not playing the game is it?

On the whole ,if you have a ratio less than .2 and you have downloaded 100Gb...you aint here to share or even help out are you and its those that must be dealt with accordingly in the tracker script.....

or the bop on the head :lol

but that's just IMO

If the post itself needs to be deleted I ask that admin or mods make sure it is handled. I guess it did get a whole new life to it with other issues being raised during the exchange here.

Thanks for pointing this out, it helps keep people focused on the issue originally posted about.

Until you get the same group of users on your site having the same type of arguments, you don't really know what you would do or how you would handle it. There are some situations that are and will always be "no-win". Your answer seems to be that you would just ban anyone from your site who doesn't respect you or your other users. That seems to be resulting in your former users going to other sites where they are allowed to speak their minds, where they then badmouth you and give your site a bad reputation. I suspect that many people you ban simply come back with a different username and a different IP address within minutes after your banning, while laughing at the ineffectiveness of your punishment. Who's to say what the right way to handle things is? That's why its so good that there are multiple torrent sites out there that all do things differently. It offers the possibility for everyone to find the site or sites where they most feel at home.

Well, now, I just looked in over at Zomb, and I noticed some shows that I taped up over there with someone proudly proclaiming about "their shows" .....

Hmmmm, I hold no particular 'ownership' to that music, so let these folks share "their" shows. (It would be nice if they shared the correct info, but beggars can't be choosers....)

In one particular instance of one of my masters now up at Zomb, the show was taken from a DaD thread months ago. The Zomb seeder left out the information that the version of the show he was seeding is INCOMPLETE, but he did take the time to add his own misinformation.

What the hell, all that's needed now is to change the name of the venue, change the date and change the city of origin, AND these can be entirely NEW shows and then be "exclusive" to Zomb.

Now, from what I've read about Zomb here in this thread and elsewhere, I would be very loathe to share that same information AGAIN, as it would seem that sharing correct info on the origin of a recording is something that could get a Zomb user banned.



But, when these Zomb defenders come into this site, pick only certain passages to use as exemplify, without regard to context.....maybe its just a symptom of the site; and just like the Zomb members who only share bits and pieces of information on seeded recordings.

Maybe, and I could be wrong, maybe there's an agenda behind the subterfuge.

Hey, to each, his own.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.


And March 5, 1973 WAS not Mardi Gras night.....fishwater is wrong..... Now go back and please use all the correrct info from the Dad thread on that show.

When you link their handle it contains access to their IP anyway so what's the big deal? Does it say not to post IP's somewhere in the TOS? I took a look but didn't see anything. If it's a rule it should be in there and followed accordingly.

I'm sure some people on this forum already know about this, but there's feature on azureus that lets you set a automatic ratio for your bandwidth.

Go to: Preferences> Transfer> Auto-Speed - Check the box to enable download speed adjustment. The custom ratio that is set is 2.0 (download speed is double the upload limit) so just set it to 0.5 and your download speed is half the upload speed. That might help straighten out your ratio if you don't want to have to worry about it.

I just figured that out, maybe a mod should post that on the FAQs or something.

randytravis
2006-12-27, 06:39 AM
it's actually better to download the complete torrent as fast as you can, then leave it open to seed. if you limit your download speed, you get the pieces slower, meaning you have less of them to distribute among the swarm.

U2Lynne
2006-12-27, 11:22 PM
If you don't have something to seed/offer (which many people don't), the best thing you can do is seed torrents that you have when they need seeding. Look at them every day (or couple of days or however often you can) and see if there is a show that has only one seeder and many leechers. Then, seed that one. You will be doing the same thing for that show as if you were seeding a new show.

Is Azureus quitting or does it simply stop seeding the show?

Forbin117
2006-12-28, 12:20 AM
Azureus is actually quitting. I <u>think</u> I noticed that it happens primarily when I have winamp open, playing files resident on the same drive as I'm saving to. Not positive about that yet though. More observation needed. I had been told by someone on the azureus support IRC channel that I needed a 64 bit version of java, because I have a 64 bit processor. I looked, but could not find one that said specifically that it was for an AMD Athlon. Plenty for an Opteron, however. I am still running 32 bit windows on the newly upgraded processor though. Sun never responded to an email inquiry. Any suggestions.

And thanks for the tip on reseeding, I will try to do that in the future. I need to alter the way in which I archive, store and play files to accommodate not polluting the trade pool anyway.

If you're running 32-bit Windows, I'm pretty certain you do not want to run a 64-bit program. One, I don't think a 64-bit program will run on a 32-bit OS. Two, if it does run, it might mess up your system.

What Azureus version are you running? If it's a beta, maybe switch to a stable version. Also, are you using the newest Java Runtime Environment for your platform?

Forbin117

I'm running the most current stable Azureus as of about three weeks ago. and as far as java goes, their website says I'm running the most current.

That being said, maybe you need to switch to another BT client for now. I've heard µTorrent (http://www.utorrent.com/) is pretty neat--I haven't ever used it, but that was because it came out after I switched to Linux.


P.S. If you want to make the switch, I recommend either Ubuntu (easiest install ever--I'm currently using this distro because SuSE removed support for my wireless chipset) or SuSE (bit more involved install, but nothing too tough--they just give you more install options).

µTorrent, foobar2000, Ubuntu :thumbsup

I still use a hot-rodded winamp 2.81 (base program available at winampheaven.net) but that's a personal thing, not a recommendation.

Hey, I feel really bad about my aspect ratio, but my college network is wacky and firewalled and usually stops uploading torrents around the .4 ratio. For some reason it's only for this site too, when I torrent from Mininova and Demonoid I get up to 4.0 or 5.0. Any suggestions? I love this site and don't want to be a leech.

Also, when I went home over break I got up to a 2.5 on a torrent...I wanted to seed to an insane amount, but as soon as I got back to school it didn't budge for weeks.

2007-02-02, 11:47 AM
Are you using the standard bittorrent ports (6881-6889) or another port? I would try using a port in the range 45000-50000 and see if that helps out (not all those ports, just pick one in there). Universities do usually firewall you, as you found out, and you can't really do much about it. Just try to seed shows that need seeding and where there are other non-firewalled peers because if you are firewalled the only peers you may connect to are non-firewalled ones.

I had a great ratio, until everything got reset on me. Ive noticed this, trust me.

This doesn't make any sense to me. If everything was reset on you, then surely the stats you have now are an accurate reflection of your share ratio since then: ie, since having your stats reset, you have only given back 0.08% of what you have taken. Is that what you are saying?

Or are you claiming that the number of gigs you have downloaded (approx 164) is accurate, but that the number of gigs you have uploaded is not (approx 13)? I'm not even sure that that is technically possible with our tracker. But even if it is, it doesn't make sense either, because when I called you on your ratio back in December you had downloaded about 70 gigs, and you had a godawful share ratio then. So in the past two months, you have downloaded 90 more gigs and you still have the worst ratio I have ever seen.

Pretty much any way you slice it, something's wrong. Maybe you didn't disable DHT when we shifted to the new tracker? Either way, I don't think you have a leg to stand on :nono:

thats what i always thought...but consider this, if yer looking for info on the show or opinions on quality, searching thru 20 pages of "Thanks" and "OMG, I was at that show!" posts can be a bit irritating...and pointless

i wish people posted more comments on quality, be it the recording itself or even the set...rarely has anyone ever commented on that aspect of our recordings [& usually only on the DVDs] but then again, i fail to do so most of the time...and the few times i've made any comments about the recording quality other than "brilliantly recorded", it was met with childish defensiveness and a slew of attacks that "i should just be happy someone recorded the show" :rolleyes: seems people don't want to learn these days, nor do they want anyone to know/think they're novices [despite the fact thats exactly what they are]

I just started using this site this week, and I have to say that this thread makes me want to shut down my seeds and head back over to DIME. I'm in the process of sending out (by snail mail) four copies of the absurdly-large DVD files I just downloaded from TDD, so don't forget to add an extra 27GB to my "shared" totals if you feel the need to judge me numerically.

If you want to enforce a share ratio, enforce a share ratio like TONS of other BT sites do. But if you decide not to enforce a share ratio, then it's really obnoxious to sit around publicly judging those who don't live up to your own personal standards. Climb down off your high horses and just enjoy the music.

2007-10-18, 11:39 AM
Absurdly large files? You've downloaded 7 gigs...that's not even one of my torrents which average 10+ gigs. :rolleyes:

Add 27 gigs to your total? For what, where's the proof of that occurring, we're just supposed to take your word for it?
The fact that people do share other ways here is why we don't have ratio enforcement (though some of us would like to implement it). Because we don't enforce it, we feel public ridicule is a way to make peeps aware.

Dime has a ratio enforcement, at the rate you're going, it won't be long before your privilidges are revoked.

Add 27 gigs to your total? For what, where's the proof of that occurring, we're just supposed to take your word for it? You will probably be astonished to learn that when I said "add 27GB to my total", I was using what I like to call "a rhetorical device", and not making a literal request. I say this because you apparently missed the point I was trying to make about passing judgement based on a single statistic.


The fact that people do share other ways here is why we don't have ratio enforcement (though some of us would like to implement it). Because we don't enforce it, we feel public ridicule is a way to make peeps aware.The BT community already has an established standard for insuring that people contribute back to the communities they belong to. Some sites implement it (to varying degrees) and some don't, but public ridicule is hardly a reasonable alternative. It just makes the site unfriendly for newbies and encourages petty moralizing that (it seems to me) is the antithesis of what the whole "sharing music" idea is all about.

Dime has a ratio enforcement, at the rate you're going, it won't be long before your privilidges are revoked.See, now, there's that whole "passing judgement based on one statistic" thing again. My ratio at Dime is going up, just like my ratio here.

I want to come out and say hello and point out that my ratio is crap.

I downloaded the huge A/B Road Beatles torrent to the tune of 15 gigs, and then my computer HD crashed and I lost it all!

In my shame I disappeared from here for a while, but found something I wanted the other day and decided to poke my nose in again. I've got several torrents DLed now and they're going to sit there for quite some time. If anyone wants Frank Sinatra PLEASE download it and I will be happy to upload it to you!

At the late-great Demonoid I had a 2.4 with 700g shared, so having a crap ratio isn't something I normally do or enjoy. In fact I feel guilty about it. Even on public trackers I seed for quite some time.

Surely I'm not alone in having a poor ratio and feeling that I've let down the community rather than being an arse about it as some have in this board as I've been reading old posts today.

Just let me say I'm sorry, and thank you.

I dont even have one.Im stuck on slow speed dial up with an antique relic of a computer.I depend on the fine folks who offer vines,trades and B&P's.That is what I would suggest to you {if you dont mind}.Post your list here on TDD {in the proper forum of course} and offer up B&P's and snail trades.There are a lot more of "us" out there than you would think and I know that others in the same boat Im in would greatly appreciate it.That is how I give back anyway.

Last week I tried to help out a couple of leeches on two separate torrents and after 2 days I checked their tracker and they each had over 20 torrents running. I sent a PM and asked them to stay on and seed after they get it, no reply. My torrent client could only give them about 30 seconds an hour of delivery because they had so much going on. I asked them to keep their torrents to about 5 total because the clients works best at about 2 dl and 3 ul, especially with their slow connections I gave them 24 hours to pause or stop most of their running torrents if they want to receive the seed.

And what do you know, they got it and split! Really ticked me off. On top of that someone else jumped on one of the torrents during this and I had to stay and help them seed.

I just noticed while writing this that I have two people wanting a seed from two of my uploads ~ one has a 0.32 ratio and 27 active torrents, the other has a guy with an 0.24 ration and 44 active torrents ~ these guys are going to be waiting a long time for me to want to jump in and help them!

Who knows how many other active torrents from other Trading sites they have open!

I sent a PM and asked them to stay on and seed after they get it, no reply. My torrent client could only give them about 30 seconds an hour of delivery because they had so much going on. I asked them to keep their torrents to about 5 total because the clients works best at about 2 dl and 3 ul, especially with their slow connections I gave them 24 hours to pause or stop most of their running torrents if they want to receive the seed.

And what do you know, they got it and split! Really ticked me off. On top of that someone else jumped on one of the torrents during this and I had to stay and help them seed.

I just noticed while writing this that I have two people wanting a seed from two of my uploads ~ one has a 0.32 ratio and 27 active torrents, the other has a guy with an 0.24 ration and 44 active torrents ~ these guys are going to be waiting a long time for me to want to jump in and help them!

Who knows how many other active torrents from other Trading sites they have open!

You know, Staff has talked a bit about this and we are unsure about exactly what to do. I've already gone and tried to cut back on the amount of shows you are allowed to seed at a time (it is set to ten), but if you were downloading and then become a seed, it won't 'kick' you off, so you can actually seed more than ten at a time as long as you keep the torrents going. Some people have HUGE connections and can handle ten, but most people don't do any good seeding ten at a time. It's tempting to lower this number even more, however a big part of me thinks the best thing to do is to educate these users. Some have been educated by coming to Technobabble and reading and asking questions, but unfortunately, the clueless remain clueless and never bother to try to learn.

I hate to say it, but when I've noticed someone who can only download at a really slow rate from me because they are downloading so many other things, I won't seed to them unless I have nothing else I need to seed.

Zomb has a concept to increase ratio by donations, they run specials occasionally for every dollar you donate you get 2 gigs toward your ratio. Just an idea !
So do several sites, but what does it really do? It makes the users ratio look good artificially. We make enough money in donations every month to pay our bills, so we've never had a need to start handing out 'gifts' for donating. We have considered adding a little note under the TTD Traders note that says something like TTD Contributor to show those that donate to the site.

I'm a relative newb myself, but it didn't take long to realize that you're running in mud after too many torrents running and keeps getting deeper with every torrent added. I get about 200Kb's down and 90 Kb's up on average, and if I want to be ready to jump on something or upload a show I need to keep my total below 5 active ~ and let 'em seed through the night.

Doing less torrents lets the user get throughput, I now stop seeding when my ratio gets too high on a given torrent to give some other people with lower ratios have a chance.

well im pretty new here, only just got back and found the link again..
my ratio aint the best either but i try my best..
as for making it a rule for ratios then im all up for that, i am a member of many private trakers and some of the ratio requirmemnts are a little strict but that only meens when you see something you want months down the line there will still be seeders on it. all the sites i am on we are allowed to use the part seeding option.

That's not necessarily true, DIME typically has about a 3 day life span for torrents. They die very quickly there, after the initial feeding frenzy they get buried, unlike here where you can bump the thread and let people know it's still alive.

Ratios don't work to spread stuff, they just work to limit proliferation, which is counter to the boot-trading philosophy.

If it comes down to a matter of "majority rules" then you'll likely see TTD implement strict ratio enforcement (to the detriment of TTD.) If it's a matter of principle, then forget ratios, things work better when it's done in a spirit of sharing.

If you have in mind large number of seeders maybe it's true but most torrents last couple of months. Popular artists are seeded well above half year.

:mad:

Actually in late '89 or '90 at Dead shows the "MAN", as you put it, started using groups of frat guys to buy drugs or find people to smoke pot with. These kids that seemed to just be there parting would inform a near by group of narcs who would then make an arrest. I know this because I saw it happen. No pipes involved. So maybe you shouldn't post about things that you don't know about so YOUR IDIOCY isn't apparent to the world.

If you hadn't noticed...it's 2007, not '89 or '90. Most "Dead" fans I know smoke pot, have families and a good job to boot, and they DON'T waste their time looking for "frat guys" or "narcs" because they are too busy enjoying the show. And I can't be a "hater" because I used to enjoy smoking pot quite a bit, I probably still would be if my job didn't require regular whiz quizzes and background checks, it was my choice to make a life change and I don't regret it....but I certainly do dream every so often about rollin one and going on a road trip just because I can. :) :)

I don't revel in it at all, I have tried and succeeded in raising my ratio. I have also contributed some content that may never have seen the light of day here since Jan. 1st. As I've said before, any dummie can sit on a torrent and inflate their ratio. I like to think that I provide something important - or as important as a big ratio to the folks here.

Wrong. Sharing means creating the torrent and all associated files correctly, and seeding long enough for it to be considered well seeded (6 completions and seeders is my rule of thumb). People who sit on a torrent and seed choose to, and that is fine, but they hardly make a difference in "sharing" if they are one of 50 seeders. At a certain point the torrent does not benefit from more seeders, although one's ratio does. When I review an old torrent that I have seeded, and there are very few or no seeders left, with leechers still trying to complete, I jump back on that torrent to assist those who need it. That is sharing in my opinion.

If you say I don't know how share fine. If you want to take issue with my ratio that's fair. I'm working to improve it.

It would be great to have the option of choosing who you would llike to seed. ie. many leechers on an old torrent (low to very low ratio) and an acceptable ratio is stuck I would like to only seed this person and put a post in the thread reminding those stuck to boost their ratio to at least 1.0 to at least get help in seeding......... Oh and the mentality of some low ratio seeders seems to be sit on the torrent without seeding in the belief that they are seeding (keep an eye out for this)... oh welll had my whinge hope this is the forum for it. :disbelief
Well, that is all done through your bittorrent client. You can block users through your client. But, don't forget that even if you block them, that doesn't mean that anyone else has to. So, if you block user B, but you are connected to user A and user A has not blocked user B, then user A will just give the data to user B.

But, feel free to bitch about it here. :D

a lot of people are being traffic shaped by their ISPs, so you may have to enable encryption in order to connect to some seeders.

I don't revel in it at all, I have tried and succeeded in raising my ratio.
.27 raised to .27

Great Job. :clap:

What happened to my insightful and witty response to Creo-meister? In the name of decency, I implore you to stop editing me!
(I forget what I said, but it must have been good.)

Perhaps a Mod felt it had nothing to do with the thread title?

How about no more "Shame" in the title? That's sort of negative don't you think Lynne?:rolleyes:

The person who started it is down with what he terms 'uberleechers'.

vlad, stop being so darned sensitive about your share ratio. You care about it a lot more than anybody else does. Put this thread on ignore and then you never have to deal with it again.

I'm not sensitive about my ratio Lynne, really I think my ratio may bother others, but I I'm cool with it. It's just fun sparring with the guys here, especially Mr. Creosote. He's a hoot! Really, as long as noone gets hurt - as they do in the lounge, what's the problem? It's a dumb premise for a thread, so let's have fun with it.:)

But this isn't The Lounge, so this sort of kidding around doesn't belong.

This thread serves as a magnet for uberleechers. Everytime you visit, scroll down and see who else is on this. Click their name, open profile and if they are under .75, I say "Name and SHAME them". I'll start.

Uberleecher: cji617
Ratio: 0.68

See. It's easy, and great fun for Mom and the kids too!
