torrenting question

#34809 3 years, 1 month ago
how long should I leave UTorrent up and running after finishing a torrent ?
I show this in the bottom of UTorrent :

seeds-----0 of 52 connected (49 in swarm)

peers-----4 of 13 connected (4 in swarm)

I usually re-seed for a bit. As long as it doesn't compromise my bandwidth. Really, you could stop, anytime. You would have to stop seeding first.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

i agree. if you download a show keep seeding until you've passed it on to someone else. maintaining a 1.00 share ratio or higher shows that you're being a good member of the torrenting community.
