First time seeding
How long does it generally take to have a torrent approved once you have uploaded it?
It is the first time i have used qtm to upload anything as i stopped using this site months ago but think its time i returned haha
first off, welcome back ;D
as for your question - the amount of time taken for a torrent to be approved depends on the number of moderators available and also on the number of torrent that are already in our approval queue (sometimes there are many sometimes there are few, we really can't put a finger on it) and that's why sometimes it may take a little while to get approved….
and don't worry about whether it will started seeding automatically once its approved because µtorrent does an automatic tracker update so you just need to keep it seeding and then forget about it :)
now, as for the reason your torrent isn't showing up in our approvals is because you aren't seeding it...in order for the torrent to be approved you have to seed it (so that it shows up in our list for us to approve)
From my pre-autoapproval era I remember it could take anything from 5-10 minutes up to 2 hours
I had one time waited for 4 hours, and then I decided to go into chatroom to find a MOD to ask.
But no MOD was avaliable at that time. So I just continued to wait, and after about 40 more minutes, I got approved.
My experience is keeping just one seeding in the client, and do not download anyone at that time, it will be very fast like within 10minutes. I think that is the way to draw MOD's attention. >:D >:D >:D
Just my opinion. Haha, it is not true maybe, but everytime it works.
Forgot to say, now I do not need to wait for approval anymore in case a MOD say gzlong, you are already auto approval now. What I said the experience is before, Ok?
