At that speed everything factors in, time, speed, power bills, the choice of torrents you seed and predicting their popularity outcome. Everything. It's simply not fair to seed your torrent at max speed (mine used to be 7kb/s) just to see the other seed get your peer done in 30 minutes. I had to seed for 5+ days straight just to get it to 1:1, and hope that no one would lend a hand. I did all to keep my ratios up, seeding strategies (get it early, seed later, looking at the personalities of potential downloaders, just to be there when they connected, etc), everything. I went great lengths to get a proper ratio, and never could.

It's simply not fair. As for B&P, sure, but it really depends on your personal circumstances. Mine are specially annoying, exchange rates, poor (or no) mail system, lack of appropriate recordable media at decent prices, and let's not take away the fact that I'm a poor student with a Zeppelin fixation to begin with.

You got no idea until you live here.
Who cares about predicting the popularity of a torrent or seeding strategies? Just seed!! If you left that torrent open you seeded for 10+ days instead of just 5+ you might of had a ratio of 2:1, thus increasing your ratio even more. And whats with this complaining about exchange rates for b&p's? You get blank discs in exchange to cover the costs for sending shows to people which covers you lame excuse of not being able to get "appropriate recordable media at decent prices". Stop your complaining and seed!!!

Seems just like any community I've ever been part of. Got to find someone to beat up on...Why not YOU?

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

it wasn't, same response we usually get from leeches...and nor is yer searching for a justification not to share back what ya rightfully should...no one's shown contempt, just pointed out obvious facts...and if ya don't like the facts, then do something about it to change those facts



same could be said of hundreds of other members...point being -- don't just d/l a ton of ish and not share back...leave yer torrents running for a few weeks after you've d/l'ed, or even months if thats what it takes...and for that *very* small percentage who *truly* do have bandwidth issues, offer B&Ps or vine the shows...simple as that

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I've always had the intention to raise my ratio, and i have been over the past few months. I've only downloaded 46 GB and i've uploaded 22 GB. Do i really deserve to be labeled an uberleecher, the only reason my ratio is where it's at, is because i downloaded older torrents when i first signed up, had i known it would be an issue i would have stuck to newer torrents. Every new torrent i download i seed to a 1.2 or a 1.3. If this business of ratios really bothers so many people, you should enforce a ratio, then you can delete this retarded thread. It seems mean spirited to run a site without ratio requirements, only to have a thread shaming people for not having a good ratio.
