First off, let me reiterate one thing before I say anything else.
WE WILL NOT OFFER DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINKS. ANY DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINK THAT YOU SEE IS NOT OFFICIALLY FROM US.
I have had a sour taste in my mouth every time I've dealt with a DDL source. All the "free" DDL sites have adware/drive-by downloads/other forms of nastiness. With Firefox, adding appropriate addons can protect you from them, but they also kill your ability to even download them from the places in the first place. Renting web space doesn't help either because the people downloading them will saturate any bandwidth that you buy. Colocating a server is expensive if you want it to be a DDL source for anime. Our group members do not have money coming out of faucets, if you know what I mean.
For that reason, we also do not have an XDCC download bot in our channel. Our group members are not college students. In fact, we're past that stage in our lives. That means we do not have access to university connections, and if we wanted something that would be good for XDCC sources, we would be back to the colocation problem.
Now, that brings us back to the torrent seeding issues. Yes, that is a problem that needs to be addressed. We will handle this in a few ways:
1. If one of our torrents has absolutely no seeds at all, please e-mail us or talk to me in our IRC channel. I will personally arrange to have them seeded.
2. If one of our torrents has a really slow seed, please talk to me in our IRC channel, and I'll decide on a case-by-case basis.
3. We will be creating a batch torrent as soon as we finish the series. Batch torrents have this mysterious quality of being perpetually seeded for whatever reason, per my experience.
