BakaBT => Site Feedback & Rules => Topic started by: xxKaii on February 19, 2017, 08:50:52 pm
I've been a member of this tracker for 1 year and i know you may think it's my fault that my ratio is so low, but that's not the case. Actually, i couldn't seed nothing since last month that i finally got a decent internet connection (my former connection was really bad, trust me).
The point is that (as the title says) i'm close to be warned and i really want to improve my ratio, not just for avoiding the warning, i also want to be a good guy and help others download stuff.
Now that i have a nice internet connection i thought i just could begin to seed torrents and i found that my files weren't seeding. I've read that the best way to improve my ratio is to share torrents whose have a lot of leechers, so i downloaded some in order to seed and got the same, barely could seed 200MB. Also downloaded some "bonus" torrents and that was the same, those files are not seeding at all.
So, what i want is to know if there is something i'm doing wrong or maybe there is nothing i can do. In that case, I think that is very unfair that i'm gonna get warned even when i'm really interested on seeding. :(
Get some large torrents from Nyaa and reseed them here.
We currently service 299,646 seeders and 6,044 leechers.Seeding on BakaBT can be a problem for newbies with a small amount of data to seed.
Also the issue youa re having with only seeding a little is because we have more seeders than leechers. You're not doing anything wrong. All you have to do is to keep as many torrents as possible seeding for as long as possible while exhibiting a little bit of patience.
Torrents with high leechers counts likely have mostly partial seeders. They aren't downloading the rest of the torrent and are only seeding the part they downloaded.
Also, in the meantime if you need to download big things that your ratio can't handle try logging out. This is a public tracker and if you log out it won't be tracked towards your ratio either way. But leave those others running and try to build your ratio up over time so that you can afford to download stuff again.
Aside from that, downloading stuff we have here from public trackers and then re-seeding/cross-seeding it here like Al said is the way to go.
Got it, i can understand now better how it works.
Thanks to you all. ;D
I'm no expert in p2p files exchange, but take a look at your connection settings.
There are Torrent clients out there, that sets, by default, limited amount of upload slots that can be active at the same time. I don't remember exact numbers, but in my qBittorrent it was set at 3-4, before I unchecked the limit.
It's okay if they keep high speed, but there are torrents that use around 10KB/s (out of available 100KB/s), so more you have the fuller you can use your bandwidth.
Problems seeding on BakaBT generally have little to do with client settings.
It is so ridiculously easy to get ratio on this site. I didn't even have to use my seedbox and I ended up with 10 TB in like a month. I've had that 10TB for like.. I dunno 5 years now or something? I wanted to actually use my seedbox to get to 100TB at one point and I asked if I could use irssi on the forums here but the mods said no. I'd have easily over 100TB seeded now if I was allowed.
Just download from other sites and seed back here, pick only popular things that people download often.
From my currently active bakaBT torrents, the movie Millennium Actress (3.4 GiB version) has the highest upload ratio (16.58) so try getting that and keep it seeding forever. The next in the list is Sword of the Stranger (3.4 GiB version) with 7.43, Princess Mononoke (5.4 GiB version) with 6.39, Redline (3.7 GiB version) with 6.31, Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo with 5.71 (3.2 GiB version), Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (6.9 GiB version) with 4.96, etc. It's all quality stuff so get it anyway. Sorry I don't know which releases exactly these are because I rename everything to the generic title alone with no fluff, maybe not for every file in a long series but the torrent handle, main folder, etc, and these are all movies so it's mostly just one file that I have renamed like this. Sora no Woto (2.9 GiB version) is my most seeded series with 3.67 atm. But I have many inactive torrents due to deletion or whatever (I have small hard drives). My bakaBT share ratio is just 1.114 and I'm happy with it given my connection (24/0.5 Mbps VDSL iirc).
