    Depends on your settings, but if you have a lot of torrents or you have seeded above your normal ratio settings in your client, then the torrent can become "queued" to seed, but if you force start it tells the client to override your normal settings.
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    It depends on how long your client takes to enter the swarm. And also depends on how many peers are seeding/connected to you.

    AFA your previous question with the forcing, note that if you force a torrent to seed after it's been queued like Sgt said, it will take priority over even torrents that may be higher up in the queue list, priority-wise.

    So if you have max torrent downloads set to 5, but just snatched 10 torrents. The first 5 will start. Then if you force #9, it will start also?

    slim it'll start but another will stop. Either that or it'll start and the other will continue too. Like binocular said, it's a question of giving it a whirl. I've never been one to limit # of torrents so I wouldn't be the right person to enlighten you there.
