What are the benefits of being a seed?


Recommended Posts

Even a few websites that host public torrents may ban peers that hit-and-run too much.

But if you've uploaded over 50% of the torrent while you were downloading AND there's many seeds on the torrent...it's ok to stop that seeding torrent if you have bandwidth issues or other pressing concerns.

That just means someone else has to do a lot more uploading to make up for the deficit. If you're regularly downloading torrents from the same torrent website, you'll probably see repeat peers after awhile. If they have to work harder on torrents you quit...they can't upload as much to you on torrents you just started. :(
