I've ranted about this before, but I don't think that means I can't complain again?!▼35 comments
I just sent this message to a user (member for a month)
" Please be careful about giving negative feedback on torrents.
You messaged me asking me to seed something I had uploaded a few minutes previously. I explained that it takes a few minutes for my seedbox to start seeding and it would be going shortly.
However, you just went ahead and gave a negative feedback on it. It is currently seeding at 1.5 Mbs - had you listened to me and left it alone, you would have it by now and not needed to leave a negative comment.
Please respect the effort uploaders go to and be patient, and give positive feedback where merited. Negative feedback is for fakes, not because you didn't like the movie content or the speed was lower than unreasonable expectations."
If I ruled the world - ratings would only be enabled for trusted users. I'm sure there's a very good reason why this isn't the case currently, but still. It REALLY bugs me!!

Not critisising (I wouldn't - coming from TPB this is an AMAZING site), just wondering....▼8 comments
Sometimes after I upload....BANG - the seed is at 1 and a few minutes later the Leechers start to ramp up too.
A few times now (today included), I've noticed that the overview shows zero seeders and zero leechers. That's NOT good as you attract people to your seeds through both of these figures.
Clicking on the torrent, heading to 'Technical' tab and hitting 'Refresh' shows you the REAL current state of play, but when you go out of that view, it's back to the old "Seeders -0- Leechers -0-"
As I said, it's happened before, and a day or so later, it seems to be updated, but I'd be interested to know if there's a reason for this....or if it's just one of those things that 'happens'....like kids being born.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong - it happened before one day....Think it was a Tuesday......

Really annoys me.▼14 comments
Unless someone has called it a dvd movie and it's actually a CAM, why would you rate it as bad? It should be made clearer what the rating is for - I'm not thinking it's the content...hell, I know a couple of people who DON'T think Armageddon is one of the best movies ever made!
I've seen some great rips up there, perfect quality, but people give a 'Thumbs Down'. Surely that's what IMDB is for?
I assume they go out and buy the one's they've rated 'Thumbs Up'.....

OK, I'll use this blog to explain what I'm doing....and more importantly what I'm TRYING to do...▼21 comments
I'll start by saying that I'm not as technical as I'd like to be. I make schoolboy errors all the time, so bear with me. It's how we learn isn't it?
I've got my seedbox, and I've managed the downloading part - right clicking on the magnet icon and copying the link into ruTorrent. That part seems to be working perfectly. Problems arise when I try and upload.... I think....
I've two files up now, and I'm waiting to see if anyone can actually download them. They are both ADULT so look away now if you don't want to see the results.....
This one I created using TorrentMaker and used Filezilla to move the torrent file onto the seedbox
This one I created the torrent file in ruTorrent and expected to see it in the seedbox file. It appeared on my PC. No idea how and why.
I've uploaded both of them in the hope one of them is able to be downloaded. Not likely to get many 'Thumbs Up' until I get this all worked out, but hopefully then my speeds will make the troops happy!!!
If you have any step-by-step guides to ruTorrent you would like to share...I'll happily look at them before I go insane!!!!!!!
