Question?

I have upped something on Dime and I am Uploading about 30-50kbs. Is that alright upload when I am the only person seeding. Also There are currently 12 leechers on the torrent should I super seed or not.

Re: Question?

That's about an average upload rate. If you want to seed the show more quickly (your upload rate will stay the same), use super seed. If you want to improve your ratio, but don't mind waiting longer to seed out the show, don't use super seed. With super seed, you won't have to upload as much data to get the show seeded (with some programs, it used to be you only had to upload 1.00 copy to get it fully seeded to many people--with some other programs, it's a little more than 1.00). This is because super seed is more efficient when seeding a show.

Re: Question?

I used to seed DVDs with my speed capped at 32. Now I can seed at 72. I have seen users seed at 32 lately and seen them just mention in the thread that they are capped at xx so please be patient. Personally, I don't understand why people would complain about the speed. You just start the torrent and ignore it until it finishes. Why the rush to get it in 12 hours vs. 24 hours or 36 hours?

Sorry! My native language ain't english so I didn't understood what you want to say.
When you'll seed a show you'll find people with patience & people without it. Last month I think was the slowest I had on torrent downloads. Many uploaders with slow speed, but who cares. More free bandwith for me.
