How to force seed on every torrent?

After an update some setting changed and I cannot find which one. I want to always seed all of my torrents, and never queue any of them. I've tried many different settings and combinations of settings and not figured it out. Can someone make me a list of which settings I should change, and what I should change them to? I use the classic interface and advanced mode.

The reason I want my torrents to always seed no matter what, is because I use many private trackers that requires seeding before they allow leeching. I need to seed as much as possible. I suppose there isn't any "disable the queue system altogether, and always seed everything" option?

That doesn't mean you have to seed all torrents at once. you just have to seed those that can use your bandwidth the most. just go to options -> queue -> seeding -> autostart and select "weighted peer count". That should sort the torrents so that the ones that can be easily uploaded to are on the head of the queue without wasting bandwidth on torrents without peers.

Thank you for your answer. But what I want to accomplish is to seed all the torrents at once. Do you know how I could configure my client to do that? I wouldn't "waste" my bandwidth as you put it. I get credits for every byte I upload. Credits I can use to leech in the future. If I don't seed, the trackers will delete my account, and I won't be able to leech from them ever again. So it is really important for me to seed all of my torrents all of the time.

You missed the point.
The limiting factor is your ISP internet connection's speed (or "bandwidth"). That will limit the total amount of data that you can upload in a given timeframe.

Each active torrent will require some upload bandwidth for communication with the tracker and the other peers. The more active torrents you have, the more you are communicating with others.

If you have too many torrents active, you will spend a large part of your upload bandwidth for bittorrent protocol communication instead of actually transferring "payload data", for which you get credited at some private tracker site. That will thus actually decrease your total upload data amount...

There are so many peers that usually only a few active torrents are enough for you to upload at full speed. Advice about generally good settins can be found in: http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Good_settings

And if you really want to have many torrents active at the same time, look into Queue settings and increase the number of active torrents there.

If you really want to maximise upload, read section C of my Guide and use Autospeed Classic. http://forum.vuze.com/thread.jspa?threadID=80454

There are sites (well at least 1) that count seeding TIME and not only seeding amount. This is where the "queued" function is not working toward ones seeding time.

I would also like to be able to force SEEDing with some of my torrents.
Is there any way to do this even when there are no peers in the swarm?

thank you!

Yes, the torrents starts, but if there is nobody downloading (peer), there is no data traffic as you can't just upload "to internet".
