I seed until 4x ratio. How much do you seed /g/ ?
>>
>>52361019
Until 0.25
No point going further when you're covering for me sempai.
>>
1.0, like a normal people.
>>
I don't, fuck other people, I only seed while leaching and after that i delete the torrent.
>>
2
>>
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.
>>
Big shows I let go for 24 hours and normally get 2x. Other shit I wait a week then remove.
>>

>>52361019
I seed until I notice that I'm seeding, then I close my torrent program.

sometimes it reaches 1.0, most of the time it doesn't.

0.5. I know I'm cancer, but it's because my Australian internet would mean that if I uploaded to a 4x ratio I could download like half an album a year lol

3-4 for private

MINIMUM SEED TIME ONLY

why would i stop?
>>
'bout 1000000000:1, after i watch porn, u fell me
>>
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.
>>
my upload speeds are, on a good day, a whopping 30kb/s
along with this all other downloads/uploads go ridiculously slowly when I'm uploading

my seed ratio is not very high my friend
>>
>>52361019
>until everything finished downloading and i have installed/watched it

The only acceptable answer in 2016
>>
>>52361091
Yeah, seeding is for chumps who wanna waste their upload bandwidth.
>>
>>52361317
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.
>>
if you dont use private trackers there is no point in seeding
>>
I seed to infinity or till my I run out of HDD space if its from a private tracker

And I stop the torrent as soon as it's done Dow loading if its from a public one desu
>>
I seed until ratio 8 or until my seedbox drive is full and i need space, mostly download from rutracker and what, so it's important to keep all that stuff up imo
>>
>>52361276
most of that was free leech
that's what my private tracker says
>>
>>52361019
Nothing.

If I seed over 20kb/s my internet dies so I just don't bother.
>>
>>52361019
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.
>>
I used to seed shit till like 5x or 10x. Some obscure torrents I would have up forever
>>
>>52361019
I've downloaded about 1.2TB and uploaded 200GB. My excuse is Australian internet.
>>
>>52361643
You must be American.
>>
>>52361643
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.
>>
>>52361019
I download and leave them in. Doesn't matter for me, and I might help others.
>>
I don't seed much, only some anime torrents dubbed in italian because I am one of the few that actually do it. Currently they go from 0.98 to 17.02x ratio.
>>
I usually seed up 2-3 ratio.
I seed more when its old classic games with few peers ( ie: lionheart legacy of the crusader, C&C 1-3, etc).
The same for obscure bands.
>>
My seedbox is a colo with unmetered bandwidth. I've seeded some torrents to 20.0.
>>
>>52361019
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).
>>
What is seeding exactly?
>>
>>52362038
yahoo answers and reddit would've answered your question.
>>
Indefinitely, no point in not seeding, since I use a private tracker.
>>
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.
>>
>>52361019
usually until 10 unless whatever the content is proves to be shit and then I delete immediately.

zero fucks given since

>>52361019
2.0 from home
no specific ratio for my seedbox. i just delete some stuff when i need more space.
>>
>>52361019
I have a ratio of 2.08 atm
>>
x2 like everyone should.
Get 1 Give 2
That's how you spread
>>
I stop the torrent as soon as the download is done, I don't want to stay on the tracker's IP list more than I have to
>>
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 have a seedbox, so i seed as long as there's enough room for new torrents on my box. then i delete the oldest files.
>>
>>52361019
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.
>>
To 1-2 on public trackers, forever on private trackers.
>>
I set it to 0,0 and make it delete finished seeded torrents. Suck it pirate fags.
>>
Im pretty sure me seeding would just piss people off due to my ISP's hilariously low upload speeds. It maxes out at like 20-30kb/s or something like that.

Seeding to people like half of this thread seems pointless. Fortunately I don't use public trackers.

usually forever or if it's a public torrent and I've seeded it more than 5x I usually stop it.

Never on public trackers.
Forever on private trackers.

0 because 0.8 mbps upload

I seed until I'm no longer in hit and run or on public trackers I seed until the download finishes
>>
You fucking richfags... I would seed if I had 10000 gorilions megabits speed... I have 6Mbps
>>
0.1 usually. 5.0 for seasonal anime releases.
>>
Seed as long as possible on private trackers
Remove from my client as soon as it's done on public trackers
>>
>>52361019
Depends.

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.
>>
>>52361019
However the fuck much I feel like
>>
I seed because it makes me feel a small sense of accomplishment and it literally doesn't affect me at all.
>>
>>52361019
1 ratio because i have 1mbps up and it takes ages to upload anything.
>>
1 mb upload speed not worth it.
>>
My highest presently seeding torrent ratio is 27.002.
>>
i seed at 10kb/s until the torrent gets finished downloading

If it's an assload of people, I don't.

If it's rare as balls/something I care about, until I can't anymore.
>>
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.
>>
Until
1) I want to get rid of the file
2) torrent is saturated
3) torrent is outdated→nobody downloads

>seeding on public trackers

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.

OCHs is the way to go here.

>>52368015
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
>>
Usually until 2.0, but I let them sit for as long as I forget to remove them.

My overall ratio is 3.8.

I can't port forward because my router is retarded

So I seed until 2x ratio
>>
>>52361019
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.
>>
I never seed illegal warez such as pirated movies and music. I seed legal torrents indefinitely however.
>>
>>52361019
until the torrent is done and then I say fuck you to everyone else and cut the torrent

3.0, because sharing is caring.

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.

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.
>>
>>52364423
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.
