My share ratio is disappearing?

I haven't download anything from here in a while. Last week I had a ratio of 1.14. Then overnight it dropped to 1.11, and I didn't download anything new, but the night before I noticed a torrent I had downloaded about a year ago in the downloading portion of my tracker, and when I woke up the next day it said I was firewalled. I've never seen this firewalled thing before and it was gone the next time I came to the site. Over the course of the week my ratio went back up to 1.12 and now this morning it is back at 1.11.

What's up with that?

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

there have been rare occasions of this/something similar before.
identical shows seeding at different private trackers were bridged by a user(s) torrent client.

..or you could be hallucinating.

explain more, please.

sharing out a personalized torrent file to others would affect your ratio.

Yes, it is either Wolf suggestion #1 or Wolf suggestion #2.

a tracker is tracking with your user ID hash, somewhere. Whoever is using the file, is not seeding back much and is firewalled.

Take it easy, man. We're watching it to see what happens.. if anything further does. He's down 0.03 ... he'll get it back.

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

I'm not to worried about the ratio itself, but the fact that something is up with it is kinda unnerving

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

If you see yourself listed as downloading a show again, try hitting the Report this Post button on the show and ask the Mods to grab the IP of your user.

Also, if you want, I can reset your passkey. However, if I do that, then you would have to redownload any torrent file you may want to use to upload a show with again.

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

not the same, but I have had torrents that said no one was leeching them, and yet I was still uploading it to no one.. Why does that happen? Even if I shut it off and turn it back on, it starts seeding to no one again... Odd..

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

could it be that those torrents in question aren't flagged as private torrents?

That would be my guess, too. We don't require the torrents here to be private, although it is recommended in the FAQ.

Re: My share ratio is disappearing?

The torrent was a DVD of Eric Clapton with Bonnie and Delaney. I deleted it because I paniced and half asleep, so I can't specify the exact one. But I know it was complete because I burned a DVD for my step dad and It played fine.
