Help with pausing seeding
« on: November 05, 2018, 04:55:40 PM »
Hi guys, I'm very new to torrenting, and I was wondering if someone could help me with managing seeding?

I've heard NUMEROUS times that not seeding is a dick move, since it means that others won't be able to download the file the same way you did, so I am not looking to completely stop it (I think that is leeching, no?).

However, I would also like to be able to temporarily pause this so that there is essentially no torrent activity on my computer. And then when I don't really need to use my computer for anything, I could turn it back on and leave it seeding for that time.

Also, I had downloaded something, and then deleted the item from the transfer list (the file is still on my computer). Is that file still able to be seeded or am I not able to seed it anymore? (Did that make me a leecher?)

Any help would be much appreciated!
