Alright...getting back to that "yes" answer. Please give a specific example of a show you were not able to download because someone here at TTD had a low SR.
Sorry for taking so long to respond. Don't check this forum often.

The shows in question are long gone and deleted so I have no idea what they were. Sorry I don't have specifics.

As far as my extra response to the original post, I keep shows in my Azureus queue for several months. When they are dead they get deleted. I was only pointing out that it isn't hard for the average person to keep their ratio up by checking shows that need help. If I can jump on an old torrent that needs help when I'm not downloading, so can anyone. I suck my provider for every drop of bandwidth they provide.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I keep just about everything active in Azureus - currently about 240 torrents.
I regularly look at the list in order by number of peers. It then shows who's leeching what, and how many seeds are on each one. Then I look for all the zero seeds, and jump on accordingly.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

Hi there,

first, many thanks and congrats for this nice place.

Question: Why do I need to have a nice ratio (I mean, higher than 1.0)?
Answer: You don't need to. It's ratio free.

So, I don't need to. Nobody needs too. And how/why the sistem is still working and surviving? Because some people is paying the bill, and not exactly because I/We love to do it. We have no option if we want some gigs.

And that's why The Genesis-Movement has the best SRE. The first 24 hours are for the best ratios. After that, you just stay if you want to or need. What I like, specially, is that I don't need to share my bandwidth with leechers.
People with nice ratios can share and so, after that, the leechers can TRY to get the gigs (and I wonder how, if they just don't like to share... but that's their problem, not mine).
That's a sugestion.

Thanks again,

gun.

PS: I'm not under a powerful bandwidth, it's really hard to keep and mantain a nice ratio.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

^^ I don't understand what you're saying. I mean, you answered and asked your own question?
Also, what is a Genesis-Movement?

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I find it fairly easy to keep a good ratio if you don't cut and run after downloading a show.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

^^ Please, define your take on the word "easy".

In my particular case, to achieve what you have done on 7 months (600 Gb), would take me almost 2 years as long as I put my bt client solely on seeding mode with "perfect" conditions: that is, people getting all my bw all the time.

On the other hand, believe it or not, I hate too the "hit and run" thing. More than that, sometimes I feel there are people that dl a batch of shows, then run and register with another name, without even bother to post a crap or two (people with 0 posts, I mean).

So, let me be in your place for one month to raise my stats! I would trade that for my bbq'ing skills, as long as there we can get real meat with real fat, and real wood to make real fire.

I'd rephrase the question here as:

Is there an interest for a ratio post policy and anti-aliasing mechanism here?

The ratio post would sound stupid, but at least could be a way to lessen the anonimity

1. bills need to be paid no matter what.

I don't understand what a ratio post policy or an anti-aliasing mechanism are so I guess I have no interest.
