ITT: Post your seed ratio! Also general seeding discussion, such as what you are currently seeding, how to optimize hardware/programs for seeding, and the ethics of seeding.

FAQ
>Why should I bother seeding on public trackers, since there is no benefit to me?
The way people act online is often analogous to how they act offline. By seeding, you are affirming that you will help others without expecting anything in return, which contributes to a healthy and high-trust society. Additionally, all of the people you are seeding for share your interests!
>Do I need a VPN to seed?
That depends on your location and the content you seed. In first-world countries, it is typically prudent to use a VPN while torrenting. Even cheap, low-end VPNs work for their intended purpose in this case.
>I have slow internet, should I bother seeding?
Yes! Especially for a torrent that is not well-seeded, you can make the difference between its life and death.
>What is a good seed ratio?
As high as you can realistically achieve. Since torrent clients automatically manage seeding, many users opt to leave their torrent client running in the background regardless of seed ratios or upload speeds. However, if torrents are completely consuming your upload bandwidth and interfering with other tasks, it is simple to limit upload speeds in any torrent client. Additionally, it is possible in programs like qBitTorrent to automatically pause or remove torrents after reaching a specified ratio, such as 2.00, 3.00, 5.00, etc., if this is desired.
>What is the advantage of using a seedbox?
Seedboxes offer drastically increased upload speeds, 24/7 uptime, and can earn you points in private trackers. Some benevolent individuals also use these to keep their favorite public torrents alive and healthy, usually with a limit on their upload speed.
>What are private trackers and how do I get in one?
See dedicated thread: >>>/g/ptg/

I NEVER seed anything. I hit and run every time. Even with private trackers. You can call me the LeechMaster.

1. What do the flags mean? like DHT HT and stuff like that?

2. In qBittorrent there's settings, there's alternate download speed, what is that for?

3. As someone who is new to private trackers, and want to get higher rank faster, find new trackers to join, etc what advice do you have for me?

Would really appreciate it. Thank you (:

1. i think they are just telling you the protocols being used

2 to limit your download speed incase you dont wish to use your entire speed

3. dont be in any sort of rush just enjoy the content, have a direction your aiming for like if you want music decide if you wanna do the red interview or join via invite thread just stuff like that. get a seedbox if your not a puratin so you can just get a 247 connection with decent speeds

if japanese people are so kind, why they never seed?
i have been keeping a torrent alive 5 months its about my favorite japanese show, but i hate that i cant spread the torrent more or that i cant seed 24/7, i really feel bad when the next day the guy i was seeding to erased the torrent.
someone here has a nyaa acount or knows how to get one? i want to upload torrents i like and i know someone else would like
>>
i have a few questions if i may.
What the fuck is wrong with qBittorrent?
Torrents are constantly becoming "Stalled" while i do have space on hdd and there are plenty of seeds? And when it does complete the download, it shows "Seeding" but it does not seed, i have to choose force resume for it to seed.

i'm not sure what seeding actually is, but i'm assuming it makes downloads faster right? downloading Bad Teacher through Tixati and it's really slow. is it because there is only 1 person seeding it?

I almost exclusively download vr porn. It's the only thing worth downloading nowadays.
That and tv shows/movies that aren't on netflix.

I seed until my ratio for a torrent is 1 and then I usually stop.
I don't know how my ratio got to 2.
>>
>>1067394
My recommendation isn't the easiest (if you haven't done it before) before but it does work. Get a VPS(virtual private server) and run a VPN on there. Most of the VPN providers I've heard of don't support port forwarding.

Slowly making my way up. Focusing on certain torrents over others atm since they're ones I quite like.
Also decided to turn off share limits for weekly anime and seed the latest episode until the next airs; gotten me an average of a 1:7 ratio on those particular torrents so far.

I used to seed consistently, but ever since I moved back in with my parents I've kept qbittorrent closed whenever I'm not downloading something in order to not slow down the family internet. I can't wait for ther housing market to crash so I can buy a house and move back out.

I started downloading years ago (with vuze back then) and never got into it but I wanna start now.
The problem I have is that my main drive is getting full, is it possible to move the files without messing up seeding?
Also on a somewhat related note is qbittorrent really worth it?
>>
>>1072684
You'll have to recheck the files in your client. Most clients also have a "set new location" function but I'm not sure how reliable or fast it is for moving/copying files compared to teracopy, especially for big files.
>Also on a somewhat related note is qbittorrent really worth it?
what do you mean worth it? it's free
>>
>>1066779
I used to hit and run a lot, but recently I've been upgrading my PC and.. well. I should give back, even some. I got a few TB and half a gig upload (after vpn) so I guess its time to start the uploading. Wish me luck bruhs

I meant more like ''is it worth switching over to it''? My current program (BiglyBT) works just fine but if qbit is better then what are the upsides I mean
>Most clients also have a "set new location" function
I found after messing around it works but it was a hastle to move everything since it didn't go smoothly but I did get it, thanks.

You are like a floating-point variable. Faceless, Nameless. But you are the aspect that no one likes, not even your kind.
Take some small pleasure that when people read your message, they want you gone.

Leech is derogatory. Consider that every person on the swarm except the torrents author was a leech at some point.
I prefer the terms Peer and Seed. Peers actually transfer plenty during their downloading phase, unless they purposefully restrict their upload speed. At that point the leech term makes more sence.

First of all you do need a torrent client, qbittorrent would be good. Personally I use biglybt
You then look for something that says ''open torrent'' or similiar and then you can post that entire piece of text from ''magnet ... announce''' into the empty field and it will start.
