    I remember Torrentbytes having much more torrents, and they were all quality applications and games and whatnot. Now all they dont have very many good games, except for the really popular ones like GTA and Battlefield 2. The applications have also seemed to be getting worse. All I can really find on there is PORN, but even then, thats not even that good? I am finding that Torrentspy and The Pirate Bay are starting to satisfy me better. Does anyone else feel this way?

    Download a porn from a different site and seed on TB, when the seeds run out, get another and do it again, you can get the porn from a site that is easyer to build a good ratio at, i have never had a problem building a ratio at TB, there are some downloads that run out of seeds quick, but if you keep seeding it can pick up later when the seeders have left

    Hardest site to seed at that I have ever seen. Especially as a new user with wait times. I tried doing as Alien5 suggested when I first joined (which I have done may times on sites to get some GB's up and get past the wait times). Found out you can't even seed there unless your wait time is reached and by then there are usually 250+ seeders and 50 leechers.

    Great site and amazing speeds, but getting harder on seeders and new users every day.

    How the hell do you do that? I thought you can only seed a torrent at one place at a time? Please explain. I also agree it is hard to seed. I even tried downloading 3 of the worst seeded torrents, with lots of leechers, so I downloaded all of this weird shit that I never use like animated star wars DVDs and whatever, and then try that, but it just ended up hurting my ratio.

    Maybe thats because there hasn't been any big games recently. Name 2 that havn't been GTA or BF2 in the last month. You can't expect TB uploaders to upload games when there arn't any.

    Also if your ratio is that bad just download 1 rar file from a torrent and then tell your BT client not to download any more. You will just end up seeding that 14mb file to all the leechers and end up uploading like 500mb.

    How the hell do you do that? .

    After you have the torrent from the first site go to the next site and start the torrent download normally. Make sure you save it to the same directory. Your client will see it and will then check it to make sure it is the same. If it is, it will then seed it to the new site. You can stop seeding to any site at any time our you can seed to both.

    This is how I do it with Azureus. Is probably the same with other clients.
