Hi i have recently downloaded my 2nd torrent The Smiths - Hacienda 1983 video. However my share ratio is 0. So i have been trying to seed it but nothing is happening, it says there are no seeds or peers is this the reason i can't seed it ? Sorry to sound like a complete idiot but i'm new to torrents and don't really have much of a clue what i'm doing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks

Welcome! If no one wants to download that Hacienda gig then your ratio will not improve beyond 0. You have to have something that someone wants to download, which will happen over time.
I don't recall quite how this works, but I think you're limited to only downloading one torrent at a time if your ratio is low. So AFAIK you'll still be able to download other shows.
Have a go at downloading another show and let me know how it goes.

Ok DavidA
Thank you for the welcome and for clearing that up. However looking at the torrent activity for the Hacienda video http://smithstorrents.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2774 it states that there is one person currently downloading the torrent. So i can't understand why i can't seed the torrent to them.
Thanks
John

You're right: it does state that someone's downloading, but I think that might be an error. If you click on seeders then you'll see who is uploading and who is downloading.
