I didn't set it up this way, but I think the tracker limits the downloads until you seed some more.
Your profile doesn't seem to show you as downloading. Are you still having a problem?

Hi DavidA
don't know what was going on, i had deleted every torrent file from my destination folder in case it solved the thing but did not
now i'm back with bitcomet (i usually use azureus) & it now looks it can connect (despite having no seeds unfortunately)
thanks for the help/answer anyway

If it helps, I think this tracker only updates user status every half hour, so after you've stopped downloading it might be half an hours before the tracker realises.

Hi, I'm new here, and eager to taste of the delights on offer.
Am I right in thinking that once your share ratio gets above 0.3 then you can leech more than one torrent? I do hope so, as it's a bit of a pain at the moment. The more I leech the more I can share, surely?

Yes, thats right; after you have a share ratio of above 0.3 you can leech off of more than one torrent at a time.

After playing around with my torrent preferences, I can seed now. In my oh-so-long history here just didn't want to be seen solely as a leech!
