Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

No, we don't have an explicit ratio policy. We ask that people do whatever they can to help share - keep your ratio up, offer B&Ps, start Vines/Trees/Loops, make artwork, help people in Technobabble, donate, etc - anything to help the site out.

With the way some ISPs are throttling traffic (blocking uploads after downloading), it may be best to throttle your own download speed so you can upload for as long as possible. Sure, this will slow down your download, but it will also ensure you will get to upload for longer.

If possible, it's suggested to set one or two shows to upload when you are not using your computer - I set mine to upload overnight all the time.
