On the topic of downloading torrents, what exactly are "seeders" and "leechers"?
I have a feeling that seeders are people who you can download stuff from. But I'm not sure. What are leechers? How do you become one of those two things?

peter has the general idea yes
seeders are the ones whom already have the file in question
and are giving parts of it to the leachers whom are in need of the file
something you can tell from the numbers of seeders/leachers is the quality of the torrent if it has many seeders and many leachers its probally a good torrent
granted if a torrent has 100000 seeds and 10 leachers its prolly fake
you want a seed leach ratio thats about 3 to 1 seed to leach thats gives the best connection and DL speed
seeders have file uploading it
leachers need file downloading itSource(s): torrenting for about 10 years
Seeders are those having complete copy of the file and are uploading only. Leechers are having a percentage of the file and downloading and uploading to others at the same time. without a seeder a file cannot be completed. so there should be at least on seeder in the process.

In p2p File Sharing/ Torrents
people downloading the file are leechers
People uploading the file after downloading are seeders
the more seeders the better the download (Generally Speaking)
it is courteous to other people to seed the file so others may download the file tooSource(s): Experience and online sources
seeders are the uploaders who have the complete file
and leechers are uploaders who are also downloading
hope that helped
