Share ratio per user

Does this site have one? If not, can we get one?

Re: Share ratio per user

This has been suggested mutliple times before, and they've decided not to restrict people because of the nature of bittorrent (as Five has described)- a swarm.

Re: Share ratio per user

It would be nice if users could find out their own share ratio just to give them a sense of where they are at.

Re: Share ratio per user

The number of users of TDD is simply too small to justify share ratio enforcement, at least at this point in time.

In fact, the site might never grow to the size where leechers become a major problem to the distribution.

etree has never done it because the community generally supports each other well enough to keep things seeded.

If you REALLY need to know "where you're at", you can always install a bandwidth monitor app that will tell you how much you're uploading and downloading.

Re: Share ratio per user

Actually, there are a few apps the will keep track of your ratios per torrent. Azureus is one. If you keep each show about 1 or so, then you know you are doing just fine.

AZ will also keep track of them overall. If you open the statistics tab you can see the stats for everything during your curretn session and also for everything since the last time you reset the stats.

Shadow's experimental client does this also.

Re: Share ratio per user

I've never seen any of you mention BitComet. IMO, it's the best one out there right now. Written in C++, it is veeery efficient. Not only will it keep track of how much you've seeded on a torrent, but you can start and stop any time you want. BitComet also employs a cache to reduce hard disc hits (perfect if you're working on say.. 4 torrents at once) It's not that complicated, yet the options allow enough control for even the advanced user.

http://www.download.com/BitComet/300...l?tag=lst-0-11

the website is www.bitcomet.com, but it seems to be down.

give it a look

Re: Share ratio per user

no offense, but working on four torrents at once with anything less than a megabit per second upload is just plain rude.

And no offense to you, but what I'm HOPING that what you're trying to say is that "SEEDING 4 torrents at once.....rude", because it's certainly possible to download and share WAAAAAAAY more than 4 torrents at the same time with a 40K cable cap, and still maintain a decent share. If I'm going to be the original (Super)seeder on a torrent, I'll allocate 25K of my upstream, and put the downloads on minimum to get it out there. You should be able to seed at least a gig in 24 hours at that rate. After that, it's up to the swarm.

Re: Share ratio per user

a decent share on 4 torrents with your "40k cable cap" would be 1.00 You are telling me that your downloads only go at 10kb/s each? you're probably an audio guy anyways, i guess my point is just magnified by the size of dvds. (BTW, my 1 megabit = your 125K)

Re: Share ratio per user

BT isn't about sharing 1 to 1. That's a common misperception. Not what Bram Cohen had in mind, and not what's necessary to maintain the swarm in the short term.

This had been discussed ad infinitum at STG, and there are some differing views within the community, but the fact remains that one can maintain a DECENT upload ratio (>.70%) on a cable upload cap while running download torrents on a fairly steady basis. I leave my completed torrents seeding for as much as possible, but if they need to come down because I need the B/W, so be it. I've sometimes gone days with nothing in the D/L pipe, but that's fairly rare, and I've kept a >70 since the share ratio went into effect, and have D/L over 250 gig.

I certainly don't endorse hit and run, but I'll never tout the 1 to 1 "obligation".
