...trouble is, I never did finish at MIT, and that's how the FAQ stuff reads...

Is there a fairly straightforward process where I can do my part and keep things flowing?:wave:

agree. too wordy.

FAQ: How To Seed For Dummies

1. download something (leech)
2. when download finishes you are now a 'Seed'
3. Keep your torrent(s) running for others

Well, if you kept the torrent file in your bittorrent client and you left the shows on your hard drive, all you should have to do is select the torrent file and hit Start.

Okay, yeah--they're still on my hard drive...so...which start button?
God, I hate to be such a noob, but I do wanna do my part.

The start button is probably in green, maybe in the shape of a triangle.

when you open whatever app you use to download stuff and the download is complete just leave that show open....if others come along and download after you then you will be seeding. If you downloaded something no one else is after then you cannot provide a seed as no one wants what you got....
Highlight each completed download that says stop one at a time and hit start....
If I could get this together so can you. I am a well known tech moron here but my ratio is fine.
