healthy seeding and ratios

greetings
relatively long time visitor and seeder ... noticed lately that the ratio counter when i log in is not accurately recording what i seed/upload. i often leave my laptop on and try to seed while i sleep and have noticed the ratio heading down slightly ... for example last night my upload counter in utorrent read 9.4GB but the total UL when i log in here seems to be very close to what it was when i went to sleep last night at 917GB. i do have a healthy ratio but it would be nice to know why suddenly, for the last few weeks at least, that the seems to be not very accurate. i've uploaded quite a bit since you came back online and it doesn't seem to be recorded very well.
best to you and i'm so grateful you were able to resolve the domain issues.

Re: healthy seeding and ratios

You may only seed 10 torrents at a time. Any more than that, and the tracker ignores them. You can see which torrents the tracker 'sees' you on in your profile. If the torrent isn't showing up on that list, but you are actively uploading in uTorrent, then you should turn off a torrent that has 0 leechers (a couple in your list have 0 leechers and thus you can't seed to them anyway), and then hopefully the other one will take it's place.

Unless you have a really fast connection, you aren't doing much good seeding that many torrents at a time. I always pick just 2 or 3 to seed at a time and I pick torrents that need me - like ones with no other seeders.

Re: healthy seeding and ratios

hi ... thanks much for your reply. you taught me that lesson a long while ago ... i only seed 1-10 at most at a time ... so i'm quite sure that the ones that are seeding are being tracked ... has the green up arrow ... and i do seek out shows/people that are in need

in utorrent i look at the peers column # (#) and when there are numbers in the () then i start it .. and if a # appears to the left of the () then it starts to upload ... is that correct seeding? being helpful?


on another note ... was grabbing a show earlier that was just posted ... was at 92% and then it's gone ... any idea why? is it gone for good? --- oaitw-leftovers 1973.GEMS.gmb.xxxxx.flac16
