Yes you are now seeding several torrents.  BUT YOU ARE LEECHING 7 TORRENTS.  The rate of kbs for Leeching/Downloading is about 5 times that of Seeding.  As long as you continue to Leeching all those torrents your ratio will keep dropping.  You are useing a large amout of your Bandwidth for Leeching!  If you want your ratio to go up STOP LEECHING.

Hi
I am new to this site..
I would like to know.. what happens if you have downloaded a film but turns out no one is uploading from you.. does this affect your ratio?  I do not want to be classed as someone who just takes a film without sharing but if no one is uploading from you.. what do you do? keep it still open or find something that there is lots of people leaching etc!
I would be greatful for any help

I had to get rid of some files because my computer was too full and then I started getting a "ratio too low" warning and now my rights are disabled.

My Ratio is 0.345  UL: 285.60GB DL: 827.83GB

What's the minimum I need to donate to bring my ratio up to normal so I can download again?

There are three ways to improve your Ratio:

1.   Seed torrents with a lot of leechers, or torrents with very few or no other seeders.

2.   Upload a new torrent.  Make sure you use "Search" to prevent duplicates, and make sure that you are not seeding or leeching anything else until 3 or 4 others have snatched the complete file. (Read the rules!)

3.   The easiest way to improve you ratio is to click on the "Donate"  on the top blue stripe.  Make a contribution to the site to help defray the hundreds of Euros (dollars) a month it costs to keep this site on the internet.
I don't know how to seed, or upload torrents.  However, I am willing to donate some money every once in a while to keep my ratio at its minimum.  The only trouble I have with that is that I don't know the monetary unit, or the equivalency of Euros.  What would the equivalency 5 Euros be in American $5.00?

Due to the weird economic times we are having around the world, it's impossible to say what the currency conversion is going to be as it changes each day.

Just this week we have seen $ gain on the Euro. It used to be $1.5 to €1, as of Tuesday they were nearly even.  That's not to say that it won't make another major swing in either direction.

To be on the safe side, always expect it to be double what the amount is; ie $2 to €1.  This way you won't break your bank.  It won't be that dramatic, but that's how I do it to be safe.

I'm planning to seed some torrents that have a very small number of seeders to improve my ratio. This is because seeding the movies that i've downloaded kinda takes too long because there's a lot of seeders already. Now im just wondering, how can i help seeding the torrent files that i haven't downloaded yet? Is that even possible?

yes.....you can just download the torrent file and start it up in your client.....
if the video is in the default download location then the client will hash check the torrent and it will seed....

if it doesnt automatically hash check then you will have to point your client in the direction of the file
(for example - if your using µtorrent you'll have to stop the torrent from downloading --> right click and select --> advanced settings --> set download location.....find the file and click ok --> again right click--> select "Force Re-check"
in this way your file will be checked to a 100% and start seeding.....)

Hey Guys. I'm having a bit of trouble. I am completely computer illiterate apparently and I have no idea what I'm doing. I just downloaded a file from this site using utorrent.com.

Apparently the download was 1.17GB (Im assuming thats a very large file)
My message inbox said I have three days to get my ratio up to 0.2. Currently it is a 0.000. And my upload status is at 0 as well. I have a bonus of 0.5......whatever that means

I left my download open and it says "seeding"....but I see no progress on my uploads. I really dont know what to do and I'm very lost. I read some of the posts on here to try and understand whats goin on but that didnt help either. Can someone please help me in the most SIMPLE was possible? lol

How can I get my upload count up?
and how does this frekkin upload, download, ration business work.

HELP! Thanks.

HI atlanonymous,

let me try to answer your many topics in a simple way - one after another Smiley

Hey Guys. I'm having a bit of trouble. I am completely computer illiterate apparently and I have no idea what I'm doing. I just downloaded a file from this site using utorrent.com.

Being "computer illiterate" is nothing bad - I bet there are a lot others among our users - but a lot won't admit that Smiley It's only just a bit you should know - please have a look at our "starter's guide" for basic information.

Apparently the download was 1.17GB (Im assuming thats a very large file)
My message inbox said I have three days to get my ratio up to 0.2. Currently it is a 0.000. And my upload status is at 0 as well. I have a bonus of 0.5......whatever that means

Some things have happened:

At first: your download seems to have worked ok (hope you enjoyed it Smiley ). Then (now come the bad news): because you were the only leecher for that torrent (and are now too) you did not have upload traffic for that torrent - so your upload amount is still 0 Sad

Because ratio is defined by upload traffic divided by download traffic (in short UL/DL = ratio) you can see 0 / 1.17 GB remains 0 - simple maths. As our system watches (not only your) ratio you were caught with that bad ratio amount and got a system warning for bad ratio - together with a grace period to raise your ratio to your minimum requirement of 0.2 - you can have a look at you details page (profile -> user details) and see which traffic you currently need to get your minimum.

I left my download open and it says "seeding"....but I see no progress on my uploads. I really dont know what to do and I'm very lost.

Keep that torrent in seeding state for the time being - the best adviced I can give you! As I jusrt saw - there are currently 2 other leechers who want to download that file - even if there are 22 seeders for that torrent - you have a good chance to get the upload amount of 298 MB you need to reach your minimum ratio. Again: seed, seed, seed. If you are ready seeding: seed some more Smiley

As another advantage that will be rather effective for you: you get seed bonus points (surrently 0.5) for the time you seed - 0.5 point for each hour seeding. Those bonus points can later be exchanged into upload traffic which will also increase your ratio (see above).

I read some of the posts on here to try and understand whats goin on but that didnt help either. Can someone please help me in the most SIMPLE was possible? lol

I hope my short explanation could help you a bit for your first steps. Feel free to ask again if you did not understand everything, here in the forum, on our help desk or send a PM (private message) to any moderator you trust.

Thank you soo much I REALLY appreciate your explanation.

SO far it looks like its working. I have 10 peers downloading and my ratio is at .440 and rising on utorrents.com. On this website tho I'm at .267. It should update right? The 1.17 GB file was the only file i downloaded from this site.
Should I continue and let it seed? Or should I stop it now,since I've made the minimum?
Are there any dangers associated with seeding?
It seems almost too easy now, and I'm scared ppl are hacking my computer or something.....lol

Once again, thanks for the explanation it really helps!

Just a word of caution for your ratio will raise the more you download (have a look for Rationator 2). So I advise to build a ratio buffer so the change won't come as a surprise for you. If you keep an eye on your ratio you get used to building some supply before the next ratio hits you.

But as long you keep your uploads speed I don't expect any ratio problems for your account in the future Smiley

Hi,
I have question
I download vids from other torrent portals and when I first time download from here
I dont read forum topics. So now I have ratio 0.120 and if I try to dwnload torrent

Your Download rights are disabled (Ratio problems? Fix your Ratio to get your Download rights re-enabled).
If I have right to download I can correct ratio by downloading several medium sized vids, but how I can change
my ratio now?

the fact that you have a ratio problem shows that you must have already downloaded something....therefore what you can do now is
  • keep seeding the video that you downloaded
  • upload your own video (but make sure that it isnt already on the site by running a search)
  • donate to the site

I am fairly new to gaytorrents and believe it is a great site. I have however had some ratio problems that I would very much like to rectify.

I began using gaytorrents at the recommendation of a friend. I began by downloading a large number of torrents that were not available on other trackers so I was very happy to be afforded to opportunity to download them on gaytorrent. Unfortunately, those torrents were very sparse on leechers and I was not able to keep my ratio up. Not being new to private trackers, I figured I would have time to improve my ratio later by downloading heavily leeched torrents and allowing them to run for as long as it took to maintain a respectable ratio. I (again unfortunately) downloaded too many torrents without the ability to properly seed these mainly unpopular torrents and my overall ratio dropped to a level where I can no longer download torrents.

Yesterday, determined to return my ratio to a respectable level, I attempted to upload a couple of highly desirable torrents that I knew would have great appeal and I hoped in that way to improve my ratio. I proceeded to upload those torrents, however when I got to the step of having to download my own torrent before I could begin seeding, I was greeted with the message that my download privileges had been terminated due to my poor ratio. So even though I am diligently attempting to raise my ratio by uploading and seeing popular torrents, I am unable to do so because I cannot download my own torrent to begin the seeding of them. Couldn't there be an exception to the download rule when one is attempting to seed a new torrent?

I would hate to be barred from downloading torrents altogether from gaytorrents.ru but aside from purchasing my way to a respectable torrent, what other options do I have?

Thanks!

We do not Ban users from this site for having a low ratio, we just restrict your download rights.   You can always upload or seed torrents that you have.

... I have however had some ratio problems that I would very much like to rectify.

Like junior1174 already pointed out: we don't ban users for bad ratio. Let me stress this topic. Your account is not in danger because of low ratio.

Now let me explain a bit more in depth how to solve your problems:

Also when you know a bout ratio already, we have a special case of a "sliding scale" for our minimum ratio requirement. For the details have a look at this forum thread. With this first hint we come to the next important topic: read, read, read all the information we offer in our forum, in our faq, in our uploadguide ...

I really recommend reading first before asking - it isn't very amusing to get the same answer all the time: read this, have a look here. Not amusing for you and also not amusing for our staff team, who managed to write all those help issues only to realize - nobody will read them.

But let me not discourage you: I'll give you some more hints Smiley

As a first thing: your downloaded files. You are always able to re-seed torrents you have downloaded from our site again. Hint: If you don't have the torrent files anymore - you can always re-download them again from your details page (click your username beside welcome back on top of every page or click profile in the blue menue bar and then User Details and stats) scroll down until you reach your last 50 completed downloads. Another hint: re-seed torrents with most leechers, that will give you the best chance to increase your ratio.

Second: Your uploaded torrent. As I could see at the time I posted this answer you were not seeding your uploaded torrent. Not seeded torrents cannot be approved from our staff so you can't get anything from your upload. How to start seeding an uploaded torrent: Have a look at our upoload guide Here I go again with have a look at... Smiley

Also our FAQ has a lot of help available. Something important too: Don't forget our rules and threads about banned files on our tracker - in the forum category "GayTorrent.ru Rules and Information".

You see - you can find lot of help here - also on our help desk. But to make a good impression with help requests: show our staff members, that you try to find out about your problem as much as you can - only then ask questions on the help desk Smiley
