"waiting to seed"

Postby guitarslim1 » Wed Aug 03, 2016 10:46 pm

Is anyone having a problem with transmission "waiting to seed" message? This has been going on for days with my torrents. Any suggestions?

What does this even mean? I accidently hit the "pause" button on the toolbar, so all torrents obviously paused. when i resumed, they all say "waiting to seed…" until I select "…right away".

I agree limited by the queue settings, but what is actually happening when it's "waiting to seed…" how is that different from just paused?

"waiting to seed" means that the torrent is collecting the leaches to get the download. If a user pauses a torrent file while downloading, the file loses the leaches and after the resume, it again started to collect the leaches and the downloading starts.
