...I moved the discussion to this thread. I hope you don't mind. This is probably the best place to discuss KSOTM matters.

So far I haven't seen any other seeds which is why I suggested a PM to see if they are still able and willing to seed before putting the series in the poll. A dialup seeder can finish an episode per day so people will just have to be patient this month.
Argh, don't tell me that you're seeding the torrents all alone.
If it is so, then I'm sorry. So far it wasn't necessary to "remind" the volunteers. Even if none of the volunteers can seed, I think I can expect somebody else to seed at least a little. Well, I will send some reminders next time.
If you really seed alone then feel free to take a rest.
You don't have to do the seeding all alone at this fantastic pace. We have only the 5th December and two thirds of the episodes are already perfectly seeded. Usually we had schedules to distribute the seeding a little better over the month (e.g. seeding one torrent per day, or first half of the torrents in the first week(s) and the rest in the 2nd half of the month).

Huh? All KSOTM have been seeded very well, IMHO. Don't expect all torrents being seeded on the 1st day of a month. This just isn't possible. The initial seeding starts at the begin of the month and should be finished towards the middle of the month. Depending on how many ppl help seeding it normally takes 1 or 2 weeks until all episodes are seeded.
The ratio issue has been discussed several times already. There won't be a ratio system on D-Addicts because (1) we don't have a seeding problem, and (2) many users (with poor upload capacity) probably just cannot maintain a decent ratio even if they want to.
