Kokumono torrent planning

current mood: confused

First, thank you everyone, for helping seed ep 1!! The torrent looks like it's healthy and can sustain itself now. ^___^

It seems strange to think of releasing ep 8 next, but ep 2 won't be ready for a number of days yet, and eps 3-7 are much less along still (if they've gotten anywhere). For ep 8-16 (and all future eps as well), I'd like to have perhaps 3-5 people help with initial seeding of the episode especially. That's where the greatest crunch was yesterday as everything got underway. There was me with, I remember having >14 leechers, before noticing there was suddenly another seeder (the tracker owner was helping to ease my load).

So, for everyone who's willing to help, I need to know which eps you have/are willing to seed, and a time when we can start this. (perhaps midnight EDT (GMT-4)?)

How I think this will work is, I set up and release the torrent and link, then people helping seed can hit the link and 'save' your DL .avi file to where you have your copy of the .avi. You should then become a seeder for the file since you already have a complete copy of it. This way, there'll be more people supplying the file initially and things will go more smoothly overall. For ep 17 and future releases, this means that the seeding group would have to get the release file first (via Sendspace or Megaupload DL probably), and we'd then seed starting at a pre-arranged time.

Let me know what you think about trying this out. ^_^

I'd be happy to help in anyway I can. I currently have episodes 10 to 16 saved and I can probably seed 2-3 torrents at a time. Time really isn't an issue for me. Just let me know when and I can leave it running. :)

Just let me know what I can do to help!

I live in Europe, so there are time differences. ^^
But maybe I can help seeding this way!

Midnight EDT would definitely not be a good time for you, I don't think. ^^; But, depending on who else is where, it might be possible to arrange something that'll be convenient for you as well. ^_^

The biggest problem encountered last night when setting up the torrent was that I was the only person seeding and there were lots of DLers. I'm on a DSL line, so the amount I can UL is pretty limited compared to higher speed connections. Last night, the tracker owner did what he could to ease the load being put on me and helped seed what he could as well. (I did not expect there to be so many people DLing).

So... the plan now is to arrange a time when episodes are released so that willing seeders can help out right away during that initial rush. Right now, I'm trying to get a feel for when people are available to seed episodes in order to create a workable release schedule. The schedule will depend on how many people there are and where they are. ^_^

(Yesterday's release was at ~10:30-11:00 PM MDT, which is... 12:30-1:00 AM Eastern).

Hi hi! I don't have ep.1 (should go get now^^) but i do have ep. 11-16. I can help seed, only it depends on the time. I mean, i work until midnight(EST), so anytime after that i can just connect to the torrent and let it run with my completed copy for the rest of the night.
Let me know if you still need seeds and what times/dates u need them. I'd be more than happy to help out ^_^.

I can help you, my comp is on internet all time and i have all episodes... but it is just one problem :) You must explain to me how to help you seed...

Basically, seeding should be a simple (I hope! ^^; ) matter of hitting the torrent link and "saving" the torrent to wherever you have the complete copy of the episode. If you usually don't specify where your BT client saves files, then you'll want to have the episode file in the same directory as you normally save the files you get from BT.

Pretty much all of us who will be seeding won't have tried this before so there's always the chance something will go wrong, but we can always hope it'll work flawlessly right from the start. ^^;

Otherwise, I hope you don't mind, but I've friended you so you can read my Friends Only posts. That's where the initial scheduling will be posted. ^_^

Once we get set up, I can definitely help seed (right now I'm using a computer at the girl's place)--I have final versions of all of the eps. I've worked on, naturally. ^^

*veryvery tired*

I have BitTorrent, but I have no idea how the whole seeding/leaching thing works. I just download a torrent and then open my client and let it do it's thing that enables me to watch whatever it is. That's the extent of my knowledge.
