Re: Left in the lurch:NO Seeders:OPTIONS

Stay on the torrent and bump the thread requesting a seeder. Don't forget that not everyone can seed 24/7. Some people turn their computers off at night, or they turn their torrents off during the day in order to work, or who knows why. Just because they are gone right now, doesn't mean they will stay gone. However, sometimes they ARE gone for good for any number of reasons. One thing you should make sure of is that when that torrent is going, you have allocated sufficient bandwidth to the download. Nobody likes trying to seed a torrent to someone who is also downloading five other shows and can only download at 10 kb/s which would take several days to complete a show.
