roseycheeks Posted August 22, 2013 Report Share Posted August 22, 2013 I have some questions I would really appreciate answers to concerning private sites like bittorrent1.Which ratio affects a user on bittorrent? Is it the "Share ratio"? How does it benefit them, in contrast how does it negatively affect a user when they do not have a good ratio. Are the affects only pertaining to the current download or to all downloads2. Im learning that you have to seed files to boost this ratio. (What is the ratio called?). When you seed, does it benefit you more to seed particular torrents? If so, what makes the particular torrents seeding more beneficial? Is it the Peer to seed ratio on the individual torrents, or it doesnt make a difference as long as you are seeding? 3. Once you have built your ratio, if you continue to seed every download you make, popular or not, in demand or not in demand, (I guess im referring to "peer to seed?"), will your ratio be maintained? Or, would you have to continuously choose certain torrents to download which are more popluar with a better peer-seed to balance your ratio when downloading less popular downloads.4. For example, if you have built a good ratio for the site and you are reaping the benefits (what are they again? Faster download etc??), and you decide to download a movie that nobody wants to watch or is interested in and its a large file, but you seed it afterwards for however long (How long should it be?), will it negatively affect your overall ratio? If so, would you have to seed a better file to make up for the loss? How would you choose a file to make up for the loss? In other words, what in simple terms makes seeding a specific torrent better or worse?I appreciate anyone taking time to help me! Thank you!
