Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

Is this possible? I'm on a torrent righ now with 43 seeders and 6 leechers. Will I ever share as much as I've downloaded with so many seeders?

You're right. The more seeders there are, the less you have to share.

So...seed as much as you can. Seeders will start to drop off and as long as you stick around as long as you can...you're ratio will creep up.

Re: Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

If a torrent is that well seeded you shouldn't feel guilty for dropping off to use your bandwidth for other things. If you are concerned about your ratio you can wait until the torrent gets older and help out the last stragglers finish as Mamba alluded to.

I find that to be a huge problem for myself at Oink.

Also, we don't judge you for your share ratio here at TTD!

Re: Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

I agree... drop off and return a bit later to rescue latecomers. also, when the torrent getting to the point where its pretty inactive you can pop open a window even tho there's no leechers yet and post in the thread that you are reseeding for anybody who missed it the first time around.

you have to have a good share ratio. I don't think you would work out there.

Re: Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

i thought this too, however, i found that if you expand your storage you can keep shows available longer. i keep popular bands such as nirvana, lz,etc, in compressed format, then wait for reseed opp.

Jeeeez, ratio is not what it is all about ain't it ?

The more seeders, the more music.

It is nice to try to give back as much and more than you take but for music's sake, not for number's

Re: Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

you say ratio isn't important, than I think that we shouldn't be able to see what others have for an d/u ratio, only mods and I should see what my ratio is, it would stop some of the eliteist bitching about someones ratio being below 1, and in the short time I've been here I've seen lots of it

some of us don't have massive hard drives to store 50 shows on.
I have a micro 12 gig hd with 8 gig free for downloading(current free space is 1.5 gig) so if I want to download something I have to make room. I do my best to get every show I dowloaded to at least a ratio of 1 before I stop seeding, even then I'll try to finish off a peer if there are no seeds other than myself, but someone else comes on to download the show and the old peer that should have started seeding removes them self from the pool leaving me in the position of stranding a peer if I want to download something else.

I'd rather see a limit on downloads(1 per day?) when a users ratio drops below 1 and (1 per week?)when a users ratio drops below .5 you'd have to give the user a week to improve there ratio before a download restriction

Re: Too many seeders dilutes share ratio?

Hey LastStarFighter (great movie!),

I just posted an announcement about this site going to a passkey system next week. One of the reasons I want to do so is so I may eventually set limits on those with low ratios (like you suggested).
