Eh, it depends on what it is. If it's something I usually download like FOSS, then I'm not actually contributing very much usually. If it's an obscure thing i'll seed indefinitely if I think there's a chance i'm one of the few with a copy.
You guys are all trash.
I can understand this, I've used stralia internets.
I've downloaded a few obscure / rare files where only one guy is seeding it. Must be guys liek you. Thanks buddy.
You want to know how I seed?
Max connections out: 700
Max connections in: 500
Upload limit: 10kb/s
Download limit: inf
Needless to say, I stop seeding to the 50+ people sharing my 10kb/s after I'm done downloading. Only uploaded about 2-7mb when I torrented GTA V to test it on my pc.
Because you're the only seeder left and your bandwidth is insufficient to support the 20gig+ torrent solely by yourself, so you choose to let it die and allot the traffic to other torrents instead of luring in a peer who would just drop it halfway through.
most of that was free leech
that's what my private tracker says
I don't seed. Let's me feel less bad about supporting a system that takes money away from content producers. Maybe when I get a job (student) I'll stop torrenting completely, except for things I can't buy.
First of all, most of the money goes to publishers and not content creators. And we all know publishers are cucks.
Secondly, most content providers earn millions, you brainwashed cuck. Ordinary people work their asses of and earn a fraction of what content providers do but they are still bitching about piracy.
If the torrent is unlikely to die (50+ seeders), I don't even bother to stay. If it's half-dead, I'll force-enable seeding until forever. Otherwise I stay until ~3-4 ratio, or while the torrent is still fresh (such as new animu series).
yahoo answers and reddit would've answered your question.
Currently, highest ratio on a torrent still running is 14.1
I never seed on a public tracker though.
Also who cares? Seed boxes just seed as needed, I actually had to look up the ratio cause I don't care.
usually until 10 unless whatever the content is proves to be shit and then I delete immediately.
zero fucks given since

Seeding is disabled on mine. I have over 28TB downloaded and absolutely no upload. It's hilarious, I'm so grateful though that people like OP seed so much. Nothing worse than downloading from a torrent and it goes dialup slow or it dropsout.
I seed stuff on private trackers pretty much forever.
For public trackers, I just leave it there until my torrent client gets cluttered and remove them all at once. Usually takes a month or so.
Easier to just let it seed than to go and remove things frequently, also doesn't really hurt anything since I have a decent internet connection.
I have many torrents that are very rarely downloaded. I sometimes delete a torrent (including the files) after a certain time if I have no use for it and need diskspace (which I always need). I mean, I can't wait for ever and ever for someone to be interested in a 5gb Papuan Penis Gong Music torrent.
Smaller rare torrents I tend to keep up for a long time. If not actively then sporadically make them available to see if there are people who haven't been able to download them.
I seed because it makes me feel a small sense of accomplishment and it literally doesn't affect me at all.
Public trackers: Stop as soon as possible (In rTorrent that means 0.01)
Private trackers: Forever
I don't. I use DCC for my chinese girl cartoons.
Depending on the content.
If it's something extremely popular It usually goes up to 10:1 in the first 2 days
But most of the time it's either 2 or 3.
Besides I only torrent movies.
My overall ratio is 2.6.
I don't, most of the time there's already a decent amount of people, plus upload isn't really that great and I'm also a bit paranoid about being caught I'm a horrible person but I don't belong to any private trackers anyway.
I seed as much as I can, ie 100 ko/s. I'm not the only one using up speed.
I have to use Ratiomaster because it would be a disaster for private torrents otherwise.
It's bad, I know, but I have no other choice.
I wish I had 1000/200 fiber to provide nice speed to Anons.
My internet is absolute cancer and it would take me a shitton of time to seed to a 1:1 ratio.
But then my country is known for tracking torrents and I couldn't bother with VPNs so whatever.
OCHs is the way to go here.
I have experiences with qbit fucking up routers. Router that can normally handle a large load just chugs with qbit going.
Anyway, it's 2.2.1 so now biggie.
public trackers don't do any favouritism. when you have a high ratio (and the tracker knows it) a private tracker in theory will give you priority
I has awful upload seeds. If it's a short term torrent that will replaced by a batch torrent in a few weeks, I don't worry too much about ratios. If it's from a private or semi-private tracker, I tend to try for 1x and will go farther if I can. If it's a rare file and I'm the only one uploading, I place it in a different folder and upload as long as possible.
3.0 with exceptions:
Shitty intermittent seeders when I was downloading = will seed as long as it takes for a better seeder base to be established.
Tons of seeders and very few peers, to the point where getting 1.0 ratio would take months = will seed for just a week or two.
>Going on an anime private tracker when you can just use public trackers
Not even him but how cucked can you get?
I seed until 2x, unless something rare i found that I can't find anywhere else (few things like that I have), i seed those forever or until torrent dies, if torrent dies, I make a new one with it.
I do it like this too, but I also seed indefinitely things that have sentimental value, like old anime from my childhood.
Occasionally I look at what I'm seeding, if the upload speeds are low I stop them and replace them with other torrents to seed, and if the upload speeds are high I leave them to seed until the speed drops.
It's nothing to do with being rich, it's about being born in (or migrating to) the right place(s).
But don't worry, those of us who do have kickass internet and good hearts will seed more than covers you.
