I've been seeding the Police Reunion torrent all weekend but TD site is not showing me as a seeder and my ratio hasn't improved :( Still upping at 45K/B, any ideas?

I had the exact same problem on my most recent upload (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=35809) (see my Azureus screen grab and Lynne's response). It seems I somehow had enabled dht on my torrent. I'm not sure how it happened or what to do to fix it.

Lynne kindly offered that if I PMd her with the torrent stats that she'd manually correct my ratio. Likely she'd extend the same offer to you.

Yep, I will manually change people's stats if there are problems. I'm most interested in getting to the bottom of why this sometimes happens.

steves154, what bittorrent client are you using? And has this ever happened before (I see you have stats, so obviously it has worked before). Did you just changed clients or upgrade your client? Any chance you can see what is written next to the Tracker Status line for your client (like what is next to Tracker Stats in MisterPitiful's post - number 13 - he linked to)?

My Utorrent shows me seeding 10 gigs but it doesn't show up as that on the tracker :/
Fortunatly for you guys, I don't really mind seeding a little extra :lol


I'm only posting because I'm curious as to why this happens? Mine is just showing up on the site wrong after updating the tracker. I guess a little bit just didn't show a bunch of times making my ratio 1.5 gig less ? Strange.

I just figured it was the tracker - Saw this thread and decided to just ask why?

I'm using Bit Torrent T-0.3.10, see attached screen shot for stats etc.

After I posted the first message I had to shut down my laptop and stop seeding. Today I logged on again and started seeding. A few minutes in and I show as a seeder but no upload ratio on the site although BT says doing just fine.

This has happened before but at the time I thought it must have been my imagination. Can't think of any obvious connection/reason.

steves154, PM me and I can reset your passkey (or send me an IM message - U2Lynne). Then, re-download the torrent file from the thread and we can see if a new passkey will make you 'seen' by the tracker.

(I added 11 GB to your upload.)

If you look at the Peers List, that only shows your upload/download stats for the amount of time listed in the Connection Time column. We restarted mysql yesterday morning, so that time will only show about a days worth of stats. But, if at anytime you stop your torrent and then start it again, the stats in the Peers List will only start from that particular start and will not include old stats.
