    From my understanding, ratio is the comparison between how much you download and upload.

    For example:
    If your upload amount equals your download amount you will have a ratio of 1:1
    If you download more than you upload you will have a ratio less than 1
    If you upload more than you download you will have a ratio greater than 1

    so i should be having 1.1? or is seeding something to do with this?

    uploaded data divided by downloaded data = ratio
    a good ratio is 1.000
    a tolerable ratio is 0.600
    a great ratio is >2.000

    seeding has nothing to do with it, it's all about comparing the amount you've downloaded w/ the amount you've uploaded.
    Most private trackers want you to have at a 1:1 ratio or greater, meaning they want you to upload at least the amount of data you are downloading.

    Not quite right Donk, if your upload equals your d/l your ratio will be 1:0.

    Pimply, if you upload the same amount or more as you download for each file then you will have a good ratio.

    No, the ratio expressed as a number will be 1.0 (i.e. all he has uploaded divided by all he has downloaded) - but the actual ratio is 1:1.

    Donk was quite correct.

    Yeah, lucky we've not got any central midfielders - the result might have been really embarrassing if we had
