Yay! So now, it's a question of how many people will be interested in the torrent. ^^;

Thanks for all your help! ^___^

quiet a few..^^ just wait til you get the newer one out and go pass "we suck"'s releases...then you will be flooded with leechers(not to mention the always annoying questions when the latest sub of ep's what aired 2 hours ago going to be subbed and released)

*laughs* That's the part that scares me a bit. This all started out as a little "dabble", but has changed so much. ^^;;

^^;; At least they might wait until after the episode aired but before a raw is released. I've had people asking for translations for FB chapters before they were even published! *laughs*

Oh, but we're all so glad that you did "dabble"! Hehe! Just can't thank you enough!

The torrent seems to be seeding well from my end too. It's actually really easy and straightforward. :) Yey!

Yay! Thanks for helping out! ^___^ (I have to admit, everything about releasing on torrent *once you have a tracker* is proving to be a lot simpler than I expected). ^^;

It's no problem. It's the least I can do after you've been kind enough to sub all the episodes for us.

Yuki - gomen

I don't know if I did it right. I should've done everything just like I would normally dl a file with bittorrent, except to make sure that the complete file was already in the designated folder, right? Well...if that's the case, shouldn't it go directly or almost directly to seeding? But it's been over half an hour and it's not seeding yet. Did I do something wrong?

Generally your BT client should go directly to seeding when you hit the .torrent link since you already have a complete file. Ep 8 had no subsequent releases so there won't be different versions of it floating around except for the edit copies that were shared internally.

Is your BT client DLing the file or not doing anything? If it's DLing, something like changing the file name could be the cause. Otherwise, if it's not doing anything... did you save the .torrent file (15kb) in the folder rather than let your BT client open it first maybe (or opening it first with your BT client)?

kyo - bad day

Well, I did what I always do with BT files: I downloaded the .torrent--which automatically goes to my desktop--then opened it with the BT client--which goes to a folder in My Documents, where I have the complete file saved. Was I supposed to just open the .torrent directly instead of saving and then opening? Or was I supposed to put the complete file where I was going to save the .torrent to, instead of where my BT client puts downloads?

What it's doing is actually downloading the episode. Should I stop it and redo it a different way? Or just let it go ahead and finish and go on to seed from there?

I didn't change the file name or anything, and I looked in the folder where my BT downloads go, and I don't see an extra file there, which is what I think I would see if it was DL'ing the file under a different name (BT files usually have an icon show up in that folder even before they're fully dl'ed).

Sorry I'm turning out to be the problem child. I thought this sounded easy, and it looks like others are having no trouble. Wah. :(

Apt icon! ^_^

Hmm... I don't think DLing the .torrent and then opening it vs. automatically opening it should make a difference normally, but since you're going to two different locations maybe that's what is causing problems? It's strange that you only have the one file in you DL folder though. (As you mentioned, you should have a place holder icon while it's DLing).

If you've been DLing for a 1/2 hour, it might be easier to help seed after fulling DLing the episode this time (depending on how much you've DLed. The file is 188 MB for ep 8). Next time, maybe try having a spare copy of the file on your desktop (where you DLed the .torrent) and see if that fixes the problem. Alternatively, you could try opening the .torrent directly with the complete file in your DLs folder, or DLing the .torrent into the DLs folder and see if those make a difference. I'd try those various options early on and abort the torrent quickly if your BT client doesn't go directly to seeding.

Sorry I'm turning out to be the problem child. I thought this sounded easy, and it looks like others are having no trouble. Wah. :(

I'm sorry you're having problems, but it's also good to run into these things now while things are a little quieter. ^_^ Decide on whether you want to abort your DL and retry depending on how far along your DL is. (Depending on where you are, it might not be worth aborting). Otherwise, I hope you'll try the other options. I'd love to have your help seeding. ^_^

Good luck and thanks! ^___^

Since it's pretty far along now, I guess I'll go ahead and let it finish, and I'll try a different strategy for the next one.

uselessinformation by enriana on obsessi

I use Azureus, and what I do in situations like that is stop the torrent, right click & chose "force recheck" (or something like that). If the file's the same, that works for me.

Thanks. I use Azureus, too, so if it happens again on the next one, I'll try that.

Well, I'm not sure if it works, but I'll try seeding for the next hours.

(Although it's a little bit strange, the upload's okay, but should the file still be downloading?)

kiachan

P.s. THANK YOU for subbing Kokumono! Awesome work!

The file shouldn't be DLing when you're connected so it sounds like you're having the same problems hymnia was having. Basically, as soon as you open the torrent link, you should go straight to seeding provided the file is in the right place, the right one, etc. :?

Ok just tell me how much time do we need to seed... everything you say is ok with me, 'cause my comp is allways on

It really depends on the episode and how much interest there is in it. Basically continuing to seed for a few hours once the first DLers start finishing their DLs, to help supplement seeders and DL speed would be good. Ep 8's interest was much lower than ep 1's, and since there were plenty of initial seeders, its release went very smoothly. Use your best judgement when it comes to "how long" because it'll also depend on your bandwidth, but without constraints, if you can continue seeding until there's ~2-3 leechers per seeder or ~30 seeders (<- this will depend on how much interest there is in the torrent; lower interest, you can probably drop out of the swarm earlier), that would be great.

Thanks for helping! ^_^

Ouch! I want your UL speed! O_O I'd limit your UL speed just in case for when you're not watching what your BT client is doing.

I haven't seen any signs of videos yet, but l33t-raws did release the two "Saiunkoku Monogatari no Sekai" episodes. I've watched the first one and it was pretty hilarious! ^^; There was a very brief skit between the voice actors for Ryuuki and Shuurei at the very end that I'm planning on translating. (I don't think I'll translate the whole episode since they were talking really fast. It would be too much to translate.)

I'll probably try watching the second episode later tonight. ^_^
