foxy22 Posted September 2, 2008 Report Share Posted September 2, 2008 Sorry if this has been asked numerous times. In utorrent, I click help/show statistics and see my total ratio is currently *0.711. In the past, I've been at 1.0 and always tried to keep it there but it looks like I need to seed a lot more which is what I'm currently doing when I go to bed or if I go out. I don't really seed much when I'm browsing or working on my pc since seeding really slows everything down, so I put it on pause or click stop. My connection is only 2Mbit, so my average download speed is 240kb/sec max and upload speed is 20kb/sec. First question, should I be particularly concerned about the ratio relating to each torrent, or just my total ratio of *0.711? My individual torrents ratios loaded into utorrent range from 1.7 to 0 on some. Does it matter not seeding some torrents as long as I'm still giving back to the community by seeding others?Secondly, is there a ratio threshold below which I will suffer slower speeds on downloading or be seen as a leech? Is *0.711 poor, average or good? If I keep it at 0.7 and above, is that bare minimum acceptable?Currently download total is 55gb, total uploaded is 39gb.
