Re: I'm better if shown as opposed to reading.

As one example, leave that Don Kirshner torrent running once it completes. There are a lot of people behind you on that, and since it's fresh you may see others jumping on in the next few days.

Another thing some people do is to post in an older thread they're seeding, to bump that torrent up to the front page where it might pick up new leechers. You might post a comment in those Steely Dan torrents you're seeding right now, saying that you'll keep them up and running for a while. That might help out a bit.

Thanks for the advice. The Kirschner is doing very well and I have posted on the Dan seeds hoping to pick up some more.
