  • GFT and ratio?

    I just got invited to GFT and man it looks hard to build up your ratio. There are absolutely no leechers, every torrent is 5 seeders to 0 leechers, how are people suppose to maintain a good ratio? Any ideas on what I should do?

    GFT is a ratioless tracker, you don't need to build up your ratio, just seed for 48 hours ;)

        Nevertheless you will need to boost your total upload to get promoted to higher userclass, I advise you to download the newest torrents, you will get some upload

              Seed for as long as possible, longer than 48hrs even though that's the minimum at GFT.

                To me seeding for as long as possible isn't very helpful. On GFT it seems that the best chance at getting upload credit is by snatching torrents as soon as they come out. I have rarely seen old torrents with any real leeching. Its tricky though because people with seedboxes grab all the good new releases and steal all the upload credit :[

                  the best way to build ratio there is by uploading new material

                    Easier said than done. They get scene releases up really fast and anything worthwhile will be up before you have a chance to especially if you have to seed it at the tracker you download it from.

                      Actually, easier done than said. Let's see..... hmmmm.... I don't think they have any releases (generally) from 2008>. So what can you upload that isn't from 2008<... hmmm.. . Upload popular old games, movies, anything. People's scripts snatch it, so it's not like they won't download if it isn't cool.

                          Thats actually a very good point, I've never considered it. Of any tracker GFT is bound to have one of the higher amounts of RSS feeding leechers. I'm definitely trying this out.

                              Your other title generated more traffic so I liked it better than this one. Hah.
