Re: Newbie Uploading Confusion

I have followed the instructions in the 'How to create an Audio Seed' FAQ, but the transfer rate shows 0.0 kB/sec with more than 30 leechers for more than 12 hours. Can someone suggest how I diagnose whether a problem actually exists?

Also, I am a bit confused about the 10th step in the FAQ:

10. Begin seeding.

Once I have uploaded the torrent, and the new thread is displayed, I assume I click on the link to download a NEW copy of the torrent. Should this NEW torrent overwrite the ORIGINAL torrent that I uploaded, or should it be a COPY with a different file name / location? The FAQ says that this torrent is 'personalized'. What does this mean? The FAQ then says to open the torrent: Should this be the NEW COPY or ORIGINAL torrent?

Thanks in advance for your help.
You have to download the torrent you uploaded. That 'personalizes it by way of a number unique to you. I think that's what it means direct the torrent you uploaded to the same directory when you download it the initial time. If it says overwrite?' click yes & let it hash check, that should do it.'

PM donohuer if you need more help.

He knows his stuff & is always glad to help.
