Thread: Ratio...huh?

  1. #1
    Can you guys educate me on ratios? Im using uTorrent and im downloading torrents from demonoid. So im seeding everything that i download and have decent to good ratios on all those files. But what does that mean to you guys? How do i use those numbers to prove to you guys that im a contributor not a moocher? Is there a way to broadcast my overall ratio or something?

    Also, im not always pleased with the file and / or folder names of the files i download. How can i rename and move those files around to my satisfaction and still be able to seed them?

    Thanks in advance...

    Right the torrent name will have to be same name as folder usually in order for you to seed or re-seed it. Also i would suggest you take screenshots to prove you are not a 'moocher' as you call it or a leecher as i would call it.

    This proves that you are a valuabe asset to a bittorent community.

    a leecher is anyone leeching a torrent and therefore you're calling it wrong.
    you're a leecher all the time man

    maybe you should refer to such an user as leech

    Well maybe your right.....lol i mean't it in the context that it means a person who always leeches without giving back. nscherneck said he wanted to show that he was not a moocher (basically meant not someone who does not give back what he takes) and i said it is called leecher. But technically you were right but then again we are talking about torrents and a leecher is officially classed as a person who takes and does not give back what he has taken.

    Oink stats:

    Seeders 768,168
    Leechers 23,974


    in that case, there are 24k leechers on oink, those ungreatful bastards, i wonder why none of them get banned

    A leecher is one who downloads once the torrent is complete he is a seeder and which leads to the point that once those 24k leechers have downloaded they will be seeding. Therefore those users aint going to get banned aint that right syD.

    kind of

    a leech is a user who downloads a torrent until it is complete, then that user becomes a seeder; an uploader is a user that uploads a torrent to a tracker, and automatically becomes a seeder

    (btw... those stats really do sum up oink... its so hard to keep a good ratio if you dont upload your own stuff... my stats however. 236.670 Uploaded: 4.80 GB Downloaded: 20.78 MB )
