    The Box Dot bz

    I've just started an account on thebox.bz and I've downloaded 2 shows so far. I've changed my settings so that my laptop will never turn off and I can continue seeding constantly. Now, I've read all their rules, written in their sarcastic manner and I'm a bit paranoid about a couple of things.

    Some questions:

    How long should I keep Vuze open for, for seeding? Days, weeks or a month?

    How can I control my Share Ratio? Or is this something that I can't control?

    Here is their page talking about share ratio:

    TheBox :: Ratio Watch Information

    Can anyone explain this to me in a user friendly way. I've been using Pirate Bay and EZTV for a couple of years now, but they don't have strict rules like The Box. I want to keep my account and avoid doing anything to lose it.

    Greenage to anyone who can help.

    I'm there and I find myself just downloading the 'free' and 'neutral' torrents.

    In general I seed to a 1-1 ratio, but with thebox that's really hard cos not many people seem to leach from me. I had torrents seeding for months and I'd only uploaded a couple of Bytes.

    I think as a rough guide seed for a week or two if you can unless the torrent reaches a positive ratio before that time.

    If your rating starts to get low just hit the free torrents for a while, downloads don't count on your score but anything uploaded is counted.

    Ah, OK. I feel better now. I'll do what you suggested and see how it goes. It's only two files because I want to start small with them.

    Natalie, what's the advantage of downloading from there as opposed to Piratebay and EZTV?

    Do they have more choice?

    the box does have a good variety of English TV down loads but as has been said here, very hard to keep a ratio up.I have tried twice and been booted twice, its much easier now that I have 3 gb of storage, you just have to DL the free crap and keep seeding for weeks.

    I was a member a few years ago. I kept my files open to seed without even thinking about removing them and they still banned me. Bunch of arseholes if you ask me.

    ^^ Same me as TFP. No great loss Demonoid is the only 1 that hurt.

    Rarely if it's not on TPB I use this iTorrentz but it doesn't guarantee against fakes so use with caution.

    I'll give you guys a bit of background for all this. I've been using both Pirate Bay and EZTV for a couple of years now. Suddenly, just a few days ago, TPB got banned here.

    kat.ph has always been banned here as long as I remember. EZTV is still accessible, but it doesn't have many British shows. I like The Voice UK and it just started into its second season.

    That's something that I used to DL from Pirate Bay, which is now blocked.

    There are a few other British shows that I got into while I was living in London and I can no longer get them, but I CAN get them from The Box, since it's from UK. BUT, they seem to be really strict and psycho about their rules.

    This is what worries me a bit. Not the seeding, but our internet connection randomly dies at leas once per week.

    Fortunately here, the cops and government are more concerned with real crimes, not llike the west. As far as downloading or computer stuff, they are quick to block sites. Skype was blocked here and only opened up about a year ago, but according to the laws here from the phone companies, Skype is not allowed.

    I tried the link and I'm able to get on it and they have The Voice UK.

    The weird thing is that I was doing everything by the rules, but when I watched The Voice UK last night, the video quality was crappy. It would stick and sound like a record skipping a few times, so I had to skip to a later time to clear that out.

    Funny, I type in an alphabetical username and it says the only characters allowed are letters, numbers and special characters.

    Ah nice one Marmite. I forgot about that site.... A very good site and fair with the ratio system as you earn points while seeding that you can swap for download credit.

    No. First I get the old Surf Safely blockage sign, then it goes to a McAfee waring, so two strikes on that one.

    I'll try your link. It seems to work.

    The box is a polite name for a c*nt, so maybe that's why they chose it, it can mean a TV or what they are.
