View Full Version : Seeding question

2009-09-18, 04:08 AM
I am new to torrents and I just seeded the girlschool show here -
No seeders are listed. I downloaded the torrent but I am still not listed as a seeder. Did I do something wrong? Why am I not seeding the show? Should I re-up the torrent? I am using utorrent. Any help would be great.

First off, the show was pulled (after you wrote this) for the following reason:
You're showing up as a leech instead of seeder. You must include the text file in the original download. You have it listed as PAL, but have the frames as NTSC (29.97) and being from Canada, it's more likely to be NTSC.

3. All seeds must have a properly named DVD file structure, including an appropriately named main folder and a VIDEO_TS subfolder.
The correct file structure for a DVD seed is to have a main "parent" folder which will be named appropriately to indicate the respective seed. Inside this parent folder will be the VIDEO_TS folder (must be in ALL CAPS), authored so that it can be directly burned to a DVD-Video disc with any DVD burning suite. Also within this 'parent' folder, you must include the md5 and text file. You can also include artwork or any other files you wish to distribute with the seed. These additional files MUST NOT be placed inside the VIDEO_TS folder. Please see the screen capture below for a properly layed out DVD seed file structure.

So, go ahead and fix the DVD structure and the text file to have the correct information about the show and reupload it. Then, take a look at this item in the FAQ which should help regarding showing up as a leecher, not a seeder - I'm trying to seed my show but I keep showing up as a leecher, not a seeder. Help!
