    It is. It has been discussed here before. Just be sure that the file is exactly the same on the 2-3 relevant trackers. It is a good way of building ratio, if U download a popular torrent from a tracker (where U either have a good ratio or it's freeleech) and seed it back to 2-4 etc. "problematic" trackers. U browse to the location, the file is hashing and after it's finished - U are on the way.

    Of course the torrents has to be different in the announce URL. I thought he was talking about a scenario, when having a popular content (film or game or sg), and if that can be seeded on different trackers. Of course every tracker requires its own announce URL, but then I guess that's obvious.

    He means that every tracker needs its own torrent.

    you cant just grab one torrent from one tracker, and then insert your Announce url with passkeys into the 1 torrent from another 2 trackers, thats how ghost leechers appear on trackers and you are at a risk of getting banned for that.

    and if everyone does that we may as well not have DHT turned off by default in private trackers.

    We are talking about the same thing then! The downloaded files (movie, appz, game) should be the same, and the torrentfile (the metadata) HAS to be different. That's what I was trying to say. There is nothing wrong two seed Your downloaded files to two (or even more) different trackers (with different torrentfiles, each for every tracker). At least I interpreted the question this way. It is absolutely clear, that U cannot use the identical torrents.

    I'm gonna take the opportunity to clarify one doubt I have:

    What I do is I download the content from any given tracker and then I download the torrent files from the trackers where I want to build ratio. I usually rename the torrent files adding some symbol. utorrent then goes and fetches the original content and i start seeding to 2-3 trackers at the same time. This is o.k., isn't it?

    Sometimes some trackers release their content in .rar's as opposed to others that release it decompressed. In those cases I decompress the original files and just download the torrent file ( which doesn't have the same name in these cases ) and start seeding the full file.
