    I've recently became a member of STMusic, Waffles & What.CD, and I would obviously like to improve my ratio to help the community, and so that I don't get booted...

    The problem I am having, which is completely new for me and is quite different from most other private trackers I belong to in which 100MB+ & 1GB+ files show up constantly, is that the files that appear on the sites above are obviously quite small (because there music files), and by the time I notice them in the queue, there always winds up being like 5 seeders or more, and zero leechers? I would think that files with this kind of seeder/leecher ratio would be quite difficult to seed effectively??

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I should go about dealing with this dilemma? Thanks!

    STMusic -> 5 seeders, 0 leechers means nothing. It will pick up more leechers very fast. Usually u won't even notice because the files are so small and the tracker updates at 15 min intervals or more. Jump on torrents asap. use rss with a few categories and filter to your liking. For what, just sort on leechers or seeders and go from there. No idea about waffles as i don't have an account there

    Seed every single file you grab forever. Unless you are only into highly popular stuff, you will end up one of very few or even the only seeder on some torrents.

    Another way is to find some interest in FLAC as the files are bigger, hence easier to get upload on.

    Nowadays, there are more trackers than there are members, so if your tracker misbehaves, they get bookmark removed, or worse, URL deleted.

    Seed as many files as you can forever. I seed about 500 albums and get roughly 500 MB upload per day.
    feels good, man

    On What and Waffles the easiest way to buffer is by seeding the very popular apps because people download them from there. IE Adobe Creative Suite, the newest Vista release, etc. STM is a joke to seed at.

    the monthly vista release is always good for ratio. download from somewhere else, and seed non-stop on what and waffles for the next month. usually released around the 13/14th of each month.
