Re: Report all ratio issues here

I'm new, so this may be a really dumb question,,,, I am having a hard time getting my share ratio where it should be. I think the problem may be that i am trying for the more obscure torrents. The ones with only a few peers. would it make sense to go for something faster moving, where i can upload more? Would this affect my overall ratio if I were to keep seeding it after the d/l?

Hope I am on topic
Thanks

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Hi Festafarian,

As you are finding out, if you get onto an older torrent with fewer peers, it is hard to get your ratio up. That's because not as many people need the data from you. If you get onto a 'newer' torrent, one that has lots of leechers, then they will need the data from you and your upload will increase and thus your ratio (upload / download) will increase.

One thing I always do.... right before bed, I check to see which of the torrents that I have on my drive need a seed (or have more leechers than seeders) and I set my computer up to only upload at it's max all night long. This really helps with my ratio.

Re: Report all ratio issues here

I have read faqs till I can't see straight and I still seem to be uploading at a very slow pace. I am running Azureus. Is there some trick I may be missing?

You speeds depends on too many things. You may want to start a seed in Technobabble about this since this thread isn't really for it.

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Hi,

I only joined today and have downloaded one torrent (Neil Young 01.19.71 Late Toronto). My client shows a download of 365Mb and an upload of 382Mb. My site stats are still showing 0 DL and 0 UL. I've tried shutting down the client and restarting - no change. Should I do anything else?

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Hmmm, I couldn't find you on the Peers List for the torrent. Did you start your download from one place (IP) and then login to the site from another place (IP)?

Hi there,

I seeded Jimi Hendrix RAH 1969 for several hours today, but my upload stats haven't changed. The only other file I've downloaded here has almost no leechers, so I can't do much with that. Thanks for your help.

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Hi.

I've got a Problem here too.
I joined 3 day ago ,maybe 4 i think , lets say not tooo long ago.

I started leech on 2 torrents:
1. Phish Big.Cypress.NTSC.DVD
2. Steve Vai - The Meteropole Orchestra TV Broadcast.

I've got 90%, or 89,5 is the exact value, of phish, means 3930,87 MB
And 589,23 MB of Vai...

My stats are these: (89.58 MB/50.20 MB/0.56)
What am I doing wrong?
I use BitTornado and on Dimeadozen its really working fine...

Thanks for helping
Hank

Re: Report all ratio issues here

hanyman, are you torrenting from one computer and then perhaps logging on from another (like one at home, one at work)? The tracker updates stats for the last IP you were known to be at. If you are torrenting from home with one IP and then you logon from work with another IP, it gets confused about who you are and doesn't know who to credit the stats to.

You can always hit the Contact Us link below and give us your correct stats and we can manually update them for you.

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Nope.

Only one Computer.
In fact. I it has been updated now, but not correct.
Now it says 204MB /84 Mb.
I'm asking myself where the 4Gb phish areb gone.


One question. If it does not any effect on the possibility to download anything.
Is it ok if I just don't care about it and promise to upload until Iäve got 1.00 ratio?

I try to do this on dime a dozen anyway.
If not ill write a message to my ISP, if they know anything.


One more question:
If I want to seed something.
Is it ok if it is a bootleg I downloaded, for example, at Dimeadozen?


thanks
hank

Re: Report all ratio issues here

hank,

I'm not sure why your stats didn't update correctly. Sometimes I think the tracker has a mind of it's own. We don't enforce any share ratio here, but we do ask that our users be conscientious sharers here. We realize that there are many ways to share what you get here (b&ps, vining, seeding, making covers, helping people out, etc), so do what you can.

As for uploading a show, we ask that you not download something from one site and immediately upload it here. It's best to let it die down a bit on the other site. And, please give credit to the person who originally uploaded the show if you know what that was. Also, one difference between here and DIME is that we do require lineage with a show. If you look at the top of the Audio torrents seeded here, they all say something like: Silver CD > EAC > xACT > flac or all-sorts-of-taping-equipment-listed > transfer-to-computer-method > Traders Little Helper > flac or similar (see the Audio BitTorrent Seeding Policy in my sig for many more examples). A lot of people are starting to include lineage on other sites, but not everyone is, so some torrents from other sites may not be allowed here because they don't have any lineage. If you have questions about this, please feel free to ask away in the Technobabble forum (here). We have a lot of helpful people in this forum to answer your questions about this.

Re: Report all ratio issues here

Ok.
Ill do my best.

Infact I'm seeding now with 56kb/s and I'll go on as lonng as its possible for everyone to download it.

Ah and what you said about seeding torrents from dime, was something I thought about anyway. I wasnt just quite sure if it is allowed.

Thanks.
