Ok, so why do every other torrent client show those numbers even when they don't need to?ciaobaby wrote:When it was first loaded yes.If you look at the third line in the original screenshot in the first post... Can you see it like that?
When your client is not actively seeking pieces from the swarm tracker (seeding) it does not need to get any seed counts when 'scraping' a tracker. ( https://wiki.theory.org/BitTorrentSpeci ... Convention ) it only needs a total peer countWell, it is not so obvious to me
And is it then considered a bug that I can see the total number of seeds on some trackers long after download is completed?
Even if it is not necessary to know about other seeds in order to seed, it is fundamental information for determining swarm health and to make subsequent decisions regarding continued seeding or not.
