    Is there any way you can find out how many people on the torrent are partial seeders?
    I mean the situation in general an on ScT in particular.

    And the second question:
    Where should I expect better seeding speed on torrent with:
    1) 1 seeder/ 17 leechers
    2) 2 seeder/ 14 leechers
    3) 2 seeder/ 17 leechers
    4) 3 seeder/ 8 leechers
    5) 3 seeder/ 16 leechers

    Thanks for the help

    The leechers are partial seeders. If you don't have 100% of all pieces, you aren't a seed.

    This is a real problem and WILL foul up most automated torrent queuing systems...as they will think there's peers on multiple torrents where there's really only super-seeds/initial seeds.

    Super-seeds report themselves to the tracker as seeds when using utorrent. They lie to other clients.

    i would say the answer to question 2 is...the max speed you download at depends on the uploaders & seeds total upload speed & where you download your torrents from also makes a huge difference to the download speed.

    Generally speaking though, #4 would be the fastest.

    It has the most seeders and the fewest leechers in which to divide that speed.

    You can't see it for sure cuz TBSource doesn't have that feature, yet.Maybe someone coded it but none of the popular tracker doesn't have it.
    You need to rely on your intuition.
    If torrent is very old, big, or pack most likely good ammount of leechers are doing partial seeding.

    yeah I was downloading a 3 DVD movie pack with only 7 seeders. I bet most seeders on that torrent where on partial seeders meaning uploading one or two movies. any pack you download like movies/ 0-day-appz etc are bound to have only partal seeders.

    Seeder = peer who has complete file! so he can't be partial seeder.
    Partial seeder is who downloads only some part of torrent and seeds them back, and he's listed under leechers not seeder cuz he doesn't have 100% of file.
