    Red face Reseeding to correct low upload score

    Hi,
    just wanted to find out the 'correct' way to do this. Say I have a few downloaded files from CT, do I just need to find and load the torrent file and then (when a folder opens for the contents to load into) replace the first few files with the full contents?
    Just trying it right now with the ITV Hendrix show. Also wanted to correct my low score by helping out with creating a bigger pool of seeds.
    Such a great resource.

    The 'correct' way to do this is to leave the torrent seeding once you've downloaded it, the 'incorrect' way to do this is to delete the torrent once you've downloaded it.
    31.26GB DL but only .04GB UL (you get 5GB of upload credit when start an account here), this is the reason you've been restricted to seeding only.
    If you can maintain your ratio above 0.50 you will get your DL privileges back, the more you seed the torrents you DL the more seed points you earn, these can then be traded for ratio credit here, http://crosstowntorrents.org/seedbonus.php?.

    That seed point system is a really great thing. I wish all torrent sites would have such a system.
