Share Ratio Grace Period?

Hi! I'm a new user here and I came for the GD videos. My upload is capped by Comcast at about 40kB/sec. Even so, I have been able to maintain an excellent share ratio at Jerome's and Lossless Legs by diligent long-term seeding.

The problem is that these video torrents are humongous in size, so it is going to take a long time to achieve a decent ratio after I download even a few of them. The FAQs say that we are supposed to maintain a share ratio of at least .5, and I hope to do better than that eventually. But even getting there could be difficult until after I catch up on the videos here I am lusting after.

So is there a grace period after my initial flurry of downloading during which I can seed my way out of the hole I want to dig for myself?

Few people actually give a shit about share ratios.

Yep, you have a very, very long grace period since we don't enforce a share ratio here. We just ask that you do your best to share - via bittorrent, Vines, trading, covers, freebies, whatever. Please just do your best to share.

You can always ask for a trade or B&P in the thread. Those Deadheads are pretty cool and they generally try to help others out.

There are a couple ballbreakers around here but generally no one cares. Hey Lynne, could we make it an option so that people can turn ratios off and on?
