Seeders and leechers[edit]

Can anyone explain to me exactly what seeders/leechers are? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.72.183 (talkcontribs) 16:58, 22 July 2008

See BitTorrent (protocol). Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 16:13, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Seeders are people uploading the torrent files and Leechers are the people downloading the files. Simple. M2K —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.13.141.187 (talk) 02:13, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

and wrong.
With bittorrent seeders are peers in the 'swarm' that have a complete copy of the data, a leecher is anyone who does not yet have a complete copy. 86.0.255.130 (talk) 08:31, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
