    How do I get points?
    You receive 0.25 points for every 1/2 hour the system registers you as being a seeder.

    Re: Seed Point Redemption

    It doesn't state so specifically, but by the way I have generated seedpoints like a mofo compared to others who pretty much also seed 24/7, that is the conclusion I have drawn. So the more torrents you seed, the more points you get...

    And I have cashed in 200.000 of my seedpoints and have 600.000 remaining...

    From Herman's comment i take it its 'per torrent' - so having 25 torrents open at a time gets you 25 times the seed points 1 open torrent would give you.
    (Yeah Herman, OR 386! - nice!)

    Re: Seed Point Redemption

    thnx for the link - uh, pardon my stupidity, but, with graphs, charts, cartoons or whatever, explain to me the following statement from that page :

    "If you reach the points for this case, you can exchange these points on the fly into traffic, we take off the points and you receive the traffic."

    wtf means 'traffic'? not Crosstown, right?

    GBs up/down.

    If you redeem 999 seedpoints you get 25GB added to your 'uploaded' stats. You never uploaded those GBs, but they're added to your stats.

    So (and this doesnt apply to you specifically) if you seed a couple of torrents that nobody downloads, you still get seedpoints because of the number of hours you've been seeding that torrent. I hope i dont confuse you further

    Re: Seed Point Redemption

    So I don't understand. I've been seeding seeding five torrents for about 36 hours now, but I only have 1.25 seed points. Am I doing something wrong, or is there some way to refresh them?

    looks as tho your points are moving. perhaps the stats take time to update. do the numbers look right? did u pm the site owner?

    Re: Seed Point Redemption

    Well I wrote the site owner, but he hasn't written back yet. My seed points should be much higher according to my math, but as long as they're rising then I'm not going to complain..

    Sorry I haven't replied to your PM yet..on vacation.

    I see you use bit tornado as a client, and may not be announcing properly. I would switch to utorrent.
