• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

My only thoughts:

1) There is a firewall blocking your seeds - go into: Transmission menu -> Preferences -> Network - it should list your listening port - see if it shows your port open or closed. if it doesn't show your port open you may need to adjust your firewall or router port forwarding (see: PortForward.com - Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model for help on configuring for port forwarding if needed)

2) There are no leachers that want to pull the files your seeding

3) There are leachers, but there are more then enough seeders to fill their needs and they aren't leaching from you.

Just make sure you stay legal. Also, this post really doesn't fall under this forum category as this category is specifically for movies (and if you're torrenting movies, we can't discuss it as it's against the forum rules, and the law)- it falls under the Software category for other programs for OSX.
