Seeding and Leeching
« on: March 11, 2009, 04:08:33 pm »
A quick intro to the world of torrents.
You can use programs such as utorrent or bitcomet to download torrent files.
When you download a file you become a peer i.e. a downloader.
A person who has downloaded the file but is helping you download it (uploading to you) is a seeder.
A leecher is a peer who simply downloads a file but does not seed it.

To seed a file just download it and then DONT close the torrent program or cancel the file.
The higher the seeders and the lower the leechers the better.
This is ├žoz you will be able to download it faster.

So when you download a file make sure you seed it. REMEMBER seeders are good and leechers are bad

So be a good person and seed every file you download and help everyone else in the process!!
