1st re-seed request Posted: 4/17/2005 4:16:58 AM
So for a torrent less than 24 hrs old, I am surprised that all the seeds have "dried up" already.
Your original seeder left and no one has finished. the 171 only represents the number of times the torrent file has been downloaded and does not indicate how many people have actually finished.
According to the tracker, there have been no completed downloads. I am afraid you'll have to wait until the original seeder comes back.
I really hope that when omega stopped seeding it was by accident. I don't want to sound nasty but I've known of guys who've pulled the 99% seed trick on other bittorrent sites and they've been banned for it. I hope for everyone's sake I'm wrong in assuming this. He did mention that this was his first torrent so I will definately give him the benefit of the doubt.
syncursor: I have just searched for Omega under username. link
21 previous posts - of which there are a couple of requests.
REQUEST: The Rainbow Concerts (MP3 Format)
Request: BBC Sessions
Help ! how do i upload a bit torrent
So I think he will return. Perhaps someone should ask him to keep his pc on.
I hope this helps you and calms your fears.
(Certainly would be a sh*tty thing to do though - especially after requesting sessions from others)
