    I don't understand why people dont upload? 99% of people on the net don't pay for there uploads so why not just seed the torrent files for ever? I use around 10 different torrent sits and constantly seed to all of them. I use Utorrent and have 3 different labels set up:

    - Downloading
    - Seeding
    - Downloads To Be Completed - I use this for files that are half completed that i have stopped due to running out of bandwidth or because they aren't urgent.

    So the files i am seeding don't get in the way of other stuff i am looking at. So what is the problem with people why not just seed? Imagine how much of a nicer place the torrent world would be if everybody just did there bit.

    Sounds simple enough, but there are some valid reasons.

    Take a person with a 100gig HD. So they DL a 4.5GB DVDR. Now they have to unrar it to .iso. Theres another 4.5GB. Mount it to burn it, taking up more temp space depending on method.

    I think alot of time people don't have the space to keep the .rars around forever.

    Impatience also plays a part, if a torrent goes 12 hours with no activity, many users will give up on it and delete it.

    Oh, plus people are greedy bastards...

    This is kinda similar to a question I had today. How long do most of you seed your torrents? Not counting trying to buffer an account. How long do you leave something up to seed for? If it gains a lot of traffic do you leave it up to try and get some extra ratio from it?

    I usually leave something go until 1:1 unless it's taking more than a week. If something is getting a lot of traffic I'll usually let it go on until it dies down.

    It is a very nice world here in the private communities like ftn, sct, bitmeTV, oink, etc. I barely ever find a download that doesn't max out my connection

    When people fail to seed they deserve what they get, public trackers.

    I would love to seed forever, and I did while at University, but my residential ISP imposes bandwidth restrictions. I'm limited to 60GB/month, so I max that out and then have to stop. I agree with necromantic though, the torrent world really is an extremely nice place, but you have to be on the right sites.

    rars are a bitch to keep, plain and simple. unless you want to buy us hard drives, we will stop seeding.

    How can you say that 99% of people don't pay for their uploads?

    It was just an exaggerated figure of speech, but i think its fair to say it is more than the majority of users don't pay for uploads.
