    I donīt know whatīs happening but lately is almost impossible to get a 1:1 individual file ratio in SCT and FTn as well.
    Not even with a seeedbox is easy to keep healthy ratio.
    FTN, as always, looks concerned by the issue and besides the ratioless thing and now the timeless thing staff seems worried and looking for solutions.
    I thought that new rules in SCT could help, but for me at least, every day is becoming harder and harder to seedback.
    Somebody else thinks the same?

    Honestly Nemrod, I personally don't have a problem with that on either tracker. Maybe its because I jump on stuff I want fast (within the first 5-10 people on the torrent). But if you don't get on something before it is well seeded (especially on ScT) you could find yourself not getting back to a 1:1 quite more often then not.
    Please do not randomly PM asking for invites as I have none to give out. Have a nice day.

    no both are easy to seedback at. For example i got a really high ratio on weeds at ftn... And I dled a random torrent at sct and got a 2.0 So no its really easy to seed at both.

    ScT is easy to seed on with Freeleech on all packs and 75% download on all other torrents.
    Ofcourse you will have problems seeding when you only download old stuff with no leechers, but retards like that don't deserve an account on FTN nor ScT

    Also, I'm able to get an 1.0 ratio on popular PC games and popular xvid movies on ScT with 1mbit upstream.

    it is hard to get a 1:1 ratio on sct unless you have a box and hop on the torrent like instantly autodownloader.

    but the rules on sct say either a 1 ratio 3 days or whatever, so it's not a big deal, unless you're worried about having a 15 ratio or something.

    yes, I think it's because most of users set their rss active so if you download the torrent just 1 or 2 hours after being up there, you would probably have difficults in keeping the ratio to 1.0

    Like deadalive said if you aren't quickly on torrents below say 10GB there is a definite moment where you ask yourself should I even bother?

    No doubt as 1 GB boxes and mIRC auto downloading become more popular it will only get worse.

    It kind of defeats the whole idea of behind file sharing doesn't it?
