Have you made a torrent file from the folder yet? Everything looks fine on what you tried to do except you didn't attach a torrent file to the thread. (Also, don't hit the External announce button since that assumes you are talking about a torrent on another site). Take a look at this Seeding Guide:

Also, for instructions on how to make a torrent file using Azureus, see this link: http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/faq.php?faq=bittorrent#faq_a_torrent

Post back in this thread if you get stuck. I'll remove the other thread you started.

(Also, if you want a username that isn't your email, let me know and I can change it for you.)

I changed your username.

You will need to make a different torrent for TTD than for etree since they will have different announce urls. Ours is http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/tracker/announce.php

After you upload the show here, you will need to download the torrent from the thread in order to get it personalized (I don't think etree uses a passkey system, do they?) and then seed with the personalized one.
