New members can only download 4 torrent files in one day. How many have you opened?

It is supposed to be only 2 torrents isn't it?

Well, it doesn't really matter if it is 2, 4, 6 or 8 downloads a day - I only made 1, and then I couldn't do another.

I have 2,000 cool video-titles that would be perfect for this site, but I must say it is REALLY not very user-friendly.

First I couldn't even download my own torrent so I could start seeding, and now this.

Why on earth is there even a limit as long as you are not in violation of ratio-policy??? If you have a +-ratio, then youi have EARNED the downloads....

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I must say that this torrent-site seems much less user friendly than the other ones I use...

It's all part of the rules. Our rules are not nearly as strict as most of the other torrent trading sites. For the first 30 days after a new account has been activated, you may only d/l (2) torrents per 24 hour cycle. JTT had far too many newbies signing up who would d/l all they could and would not contribute to the site nor maintain a good ratio. The rule became very necessary. It will not be rescinded.

Brett - we need to make alterations to the rule so that people can download their own (uploaded) torrent.

Sorry you feel that way, the rules were done to stop people from leeching off this site and never coming back. It's not fair to users who DO share. That's why we have those rules. I don't think it should be an issue. I think it's completely fair to allow new members for 30 days only to be able to download/upload 2 things a day. You download one show, you seed one show. There are your two things a day. How much more do you need to do in a 24-hour period?

We're extremely user-friendly, and very forgiving. We just have rules like everyone else to protect the people who do share here.

If I had 2000 video titles I wouldn't have time to whine like that. I guess the only other thing to say is happy trails. Plenty of time now to count your "cool" vid's.

I am just glad the site is here. JMO over

Hi Mods!

After a difficult start I´ve managed to raise my share ratio to 0.615. It`s been over 0.5. for two hours now and according to FAQ the status is updated every one hour. My share ratio don`t seem to update even if I`ve tried to close the tracker and Azureus a couple of times. I also noticed I´m not listed in the torrents peer list. Now I am even able to leech, but Azureus won`t update the stats.

The torrent I`m uploading and downloading is David Lee Roth - Nokia Theatre 2006.

Thanks for any help!

Kani

Sorry, but I have never copied screen shots and couldn`t figure it out right away. If it is not too complicated, could you advice how to do it?

DLR thread I´m refering to is:

Hopefully the screen shot comes up ok...

EDIT: I`m sorry for my lack of computer skills. From the pic attached you can learn my share ratio now is over 0.7 according to Azureus (as this DLR torrent is the only one I`ve dealt with)

see on the bottom of your screen shot:

your ratio has dipped too low, you'll need to upload something or donate

Hmm. My ratio now as I write this is 0.826 and this is the first torrent I`ve downloaded here. For some reason the stats don`t update. (yes, I was below 0.5 before another leecher jumped on this DLR torrent, but the half show I had downloaded saved me ratio wise).

I`m sorry for the bother i`m causing and thankful for the effort you put in.

Yes I am, but I`ve already completed 98.7% and progressing quite fast. I have downloaded 4.19 GB and uploaded 3.22 GB so my ratio on my first JamToThis torrent currently stands at 0.767.

Strange thing is the stats updated ok at first. Only when I dropped below the 0.5 share ratio I apparently became unconnectable and the stats stopped to update. I haven`t changed any settings in between. You think my Azureus settings could have been wrong from the start even if they seeemed to be ok at first?

EDIT: The moment I completed the torrent and became just a seeder I turned connectable again. The current transfer does seem to influence my numbers at the JTT. However I wish I could get all of the downloading and uploading counted.

My stats at the moment should be: UL 3.26 GB DL 4.24 GB ShareRatio 0.769
Stats at the tracker still say I`m below 0.50 and therefore can`t download.

Dumb newb question, but is the ratio only calculated on uploads that have "jamtothis" trackers or is it my overall ration for my entire bit torrent program??

So if I share more torrents that don't originate from this site, my ratio here will remain low??

I'd like to upload my share, but creating torrents from scratch is a bit daunting on my first read.
