What is my Ratio?


There is no Ratio system on KickAssTorrents. We do not record Download and Upload stats. It is useless at KickAssTorrents as we are a public site.

... but anyway, since so many people want to know ...
The Ratio is the amount that you have Uploaded divided by the amount you have Downloaded. (In general, you should try to keep this ratio > 1.) This is very important on some sites. On some sites, if you don't upload enough, you will lose your downloading privileges.

One of the many great things about KAT is that there are no rules about ratios.

Simply put. Ratio is the measure of how grateful you are for that thing you basically got for free. chuckle

Of course not everybody has the bandwidth to upload as much as they would want to. But I think everyone who DLs should at least make an effort. Sure, there are a lot of valid reason not to return the favor. But just imagine if no one bothered to upload/seed the file that you downloaded. smile

i will explain the ratio:
the ratio is download size/upload size=1
the ratio is used in the private torrents and have a condition for exemple your ratio should be >0.5 it means that if you downloaded 20 mb you need to upload 40 mb :) and the revers (as reward )
you will get 20 mb to download if you uploaded 40 mb yes
thats it

Well, that's a pretty good explanation ... except you got it backwards. The ratio is upload/download. Maybe the question should have been answered that way. I guess the person who answered didn't want to get into all of that because it's just not necessary here at KAT. Thanks for taking the time to explain it to everyone. OK, I've just added a bit to the answer.

"0" ratio means you haven't uploaded anything back into the swarm. Look in the "Uploaded" column of uTorrent and see if whenever you wee "0" ratio, you don't also see "0" for uploaded. If you find an exception, please take a screenshot and send it to me.

I just wanted to know what ratio should be for "No seeding Limit/ unlimited seeding".
Anyway, I googled it... And find out it should be "0".

It's true that ratio is a real thing, and that could be explained -- I believe the idea was that since KAT doesn't pay any attention to ratios, it's not something the users of KAT need to concern themselves with.
