Only if you own the recording and have full lineage
else, you can post a direct download

You know actually James, my ratio has remaned at .26 for a full year, so I have really kept a 1.0 ratio here due to my seeding of video. So why don't you just throw me a bone and bump me up to 1.0 - I no longer am taunted, and no longer defend myself. Just keep on seeding nice original content. Sounds like a win-win to me. How about you?

sounds great to me... maybe we should do a YES/NO poll, though... we usually like to discuss things here at TTD before taking any action. It should be understood, going in, that this would be a one-time thing, for you only and would likely not ever happen again for anyone else.

In good faith, I have upped your ratio from 0.26 to 0.261 (though the site only displays two decimal points of the figures).

In fact, you decreased his ratio. He was at 0.2628.

Write down your stats, Vlad, before Jameskg decide to fiddle with them.

Perhaps if he had shared to begin with instead of leeching everything he could, his ratio wouldn't be as pathetic as it is.

well, vlad, you're fucked then.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

You know, I wouldn't worry about it. The reason we have the TTD Trader tag is to show when people are sharing on this site in other ways beside ratio. I know that I have never been crazy about ratio enforcement simply because in order for a site like this to survive, you need more than just people keeping a good ratio. You need the tapers, the authors, the traders, the uploaders, the seeders, and even the leechers. It's a whole cycle, it isn't all just about ratio.

Keep on sharing, Bill. I think you do a good job of it and I think it is very much appreciated.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I'm not fucked at all. There are no ratio standards anyway. I just don't enjoy schmucks who don't contribute even one item of content dissing my lame ass ratio. I still have over 700 hrs of very cool video to share, as well a ton of money to donate here. So all is well. Don't donate to my ratio, but don't expect me to stop donating what I have very generously! This place is great...

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I started off here with a huge hole as I joined in order to get the Beatles' A/B Road.

I was in something like 15gig of debt 6 weeks or so ago, but Frank Sinatra has put me back on track.

It really isn't that hugely hard even if you get yourself into a bit of a jam. You just have to actually devote yourself to doing it and not just whinge about not being able to do it, as many often do.

You forgot to mention the trolls, the post whores and even the folks who fake and fudge lineages....... Don't they all have their place in the food chain too?



Well, anyway...thanks for listing tapers first........ happy new year......
