    Question Mark

    What is a decent share ratio? I have read that it should be like 1 and a half...

    I want to join a private tracker so making sure my share ratios are good would be a good start...

    I have just reformatted my pc hence i have bad share ratios at the moment but i leave them going near on 24/7

    Cheers, 3lions

    When you join a private tracker, your share ratio will be set to zero. The only thing that will affect your share ratio with that private tracker will be what you seed and leech from that private tracker.

    Any other uploading and downloading you from other trackers - whether public or private - won't affect your ratio with that tracker.

    What I'm getitng at is that formatting your PC won't make any difference to your share ratio for a private tracker because that info is held on their servers.

    As IKE said, a good ratio is around one. With your upload you shouldn't have any problems with that.

    IKE, i did not break any rules there. Either give advice or just leave me to it. i am fed up of you continually telling me what to do. you did this last week so stop trying to push your weight around and leave me alone. Thank you

    You will no doubt delete this on the grounds that it is not in the right place so please move it as opposed to deleting it.

    your "share ratio" used by the tracker isn't stored locally, so reformatting won't reset it.

    edit sorry if manker covered this, i have him on ignore

    That's what manker said but thanks to you both for the help...

    just have to wait for some invites or something....

    btw...i have only just got back on the net and wiped everything clean and wasn't a member of any trackers which is why i was not sure about share ratios...

    having a good ratio on a couple torrents, when your overall total ratio is around 0.100 makes you a bad guy, not worthy of getting invites
