"Seed number Limit" Feature
"Seed number limit" Feature. (Bad Eng)
If your active torrents have more than "X" seeds they pauses automatically.
For example: I have about 450 active torrents, but I want to seed rare things, so i'd like to pause all torrents with more than 5 seeders.
(RUS) "Ограничение по количеству сидов"
Было бы удобно, если бы появилась функция "ограничение по количеству сидов", которая бы ставила раздачи на паузу, если сидов на раздаче больше числа N, выбираемого по желанию.
Например, у меня в клиенте 450 активных раздач. Все сразу, конечно, раздавать не получится, и хочется раздавать только относительно редкие вещи, автоматически ставя на паузу те раздачи, на которых больше 5 сидов.
Could an admin merge this with the Automatic Seeding idea? They are the same implementation-wise with just slight tweaks in GUI front-end.
guys vote for the 'Automatic Seeding' idea. Both(automatic seeding and seeding number limit) these ideas are basically the same, read both if you dont believe. If we got the votes of this idea in that, that would be on the top.
It's really fucking moronic to see 1k votes on chat features and no votes on these features. Haven't you ever tried downloading anything on public trackers that is some months old and you get almost no seeds, even though someone out there has the file but doesn't know it needs reseeding. Please VOTE for this idea and also for 'AUTOMATIC SEEDING' Idea.

As a devout permaseeder, I start up each of the (currently 400 or so) torrents in my client on a weekly basis. Private torrents and ones with less than 10 seeders get to stay on, new / important torrents or ones with less than 5 seeders get Force-Started and the rest I stop. Takes me fifteen minutes now and upwards of thirty minutes when I have larger numbers of torrents in the client. Automating any of these processes could potentially be very helpful. Having a range of preset user-definable conditions and actions, especially if assignable as part of the Add Torrent dialogue, would be even more useful.
I can suggest similar feature - dynamic upload limit based on seeds number. The fewer seeds - the higher upload limit.
When I use my university's internet, I seed up to 50 or so torrents at a time (to maximize that 86 Mbit internet =D). So this would be a useful feature for me and I also try to seed the rare ones too!
seriously stop being lazy
just arrange all your torrents by seed and click STOP on all the torrents above your desired limit...lol
enable the setting in advanced options:
now you can still see the active amount of seeds and peers on stopped torrents
check back every week by arranging your torrents by seeds and enabling those that have dropped below your desired threshold
not really that much work to keep up with this
in fact...i do this all the time
however finding out such stats on these torrent would require constant updating of trackers. probably better off to just seed and manually stop when you feel its not required anymore.
This is a great idea and not too hard to implement I suppose.
Yes, yes and more yes! I am exactly the same, I don't care about zerg swarms that have 4000 seeders and are in no danger of dying out, but I do care about 5~ or less seeded torrents, it would be great to have a priority feature for them as they are more in need of the bandwidth.

Interesting idea...might be useful.
