First, I do know about bittorrent, and after a few weeks of thinking that "keeping you window open" meant keeping it open for a few hours, I know about sharing ratios.

I am currently trying to make ammends for past wrongs by keeping my UL speed slower than my UL speed.

I am currently trying to get my ratio on EZ over 1.0

Is there anyplace on QZ that I can see my ratio?
I have downloaded a lot in the past few weeks from QZ. And I am kinda worried,

My client is set to seed anything that has a leech and zero seeds, but that has not been enough till now.

Anyway, I thank goodness for Queenzone and Whitemanadmin.

I really do not want to break any rules

We dont have a ratio system here.

Its based on trust.

I think there should be some sort of signup/login to the tracker to stop people posting the torrent to Sharing the Groove and Suprnova, and hopefully that will be addresed during the update.

What does everyone esle think? A ratio could be good so we could weed out the leechers...

Your Bit Torrent program ought to tell you your ratio. If not, you might want to try another program like ABC or Azureus.

Ideally, you'd let your sharing ration get to at least 1.0 (which means you've uploaded as much as you've downloaded).

If everyone does that, then, in theory, the torrent will survive for some time.

Of course, sometimes you run out of downloaders so you could be sitting there for days and never get close to 1.0
