    I use a few other bit torrent sites and my ratios range from 4-8 and are really good, however when I dl something off of Oink it doesnt seem to get anything for an upload. Any ideas as to why?

    Because you don't seed for long enough, leave them running for days or weeks and you'll be fine.

    Because the owners of Oink are idiots. To have any kind of ratio you pretty much need to upload your own torrents daily, because of this they have tons of torrents but a lot of it is garbage... None of the other private trackers I use are this strict.

    oink is used primarily to distribute illegal materials.

    (and I mean primarily as 99+% of the content)

    luckily I swooped in and actually the dudes question. although oink is fucking garbage, he probably can't connect to as many people as he would normally be able to if his ports were not properly forwarded.

    On Oink, there are lots of seeders for pretty well every torrent. So, even if you're seeding, chances are you won't get downloaded from all that much.

    Just leave it running. There's no reason to stop seeding, so let the torrents run until you get a reasonable ratio.
