check if scraping is enabled in your client.

also you can use earlier utorrent versions. i do. utorrent 2.2.1.

just had an idea... maybe torrents go in queued mode and don't care for peers numbers? and then they activate later and put proper numbers?

I'm also using qBittorrent, and agree, that it's not that great. It also shows 0 seeders and 0 peers for every torrent, and I couldn't find anything of scrape in the options.

There is a possibility to keep using uTorrent though ectotropic, just get yourself the older uTorrent versioin 2.2.1, and run that one. That's probably what I'll be doing after the next time of system install too. The client is much smaller (I believe it's 2 MB against 14-17 MB or so) , it's completely bloat free, offers options qBittorrent doesn't have, and many many seeders agree on that uTorrent 2.2.1 is the best torrent-client below all that are available today, even the newer ones. Just uncheck automatic updates, and you're good.

Like Seraiel says, there doesn't seem to be anything to do with scraping in the qBittorrent options (even under advanced). :-(

Maybe, but like I said other trackers seem to behave differently to how TM behaves. Even torrents that have completed seeding and are "paused" have seed numbers of the form "0 (135)" (though I'm not sure why qBittorrent feels the need to keep announcing for "paused" torrents - but I don't know all that much about the torrent protocol).

Yeah, I know I could move back to uTorrent 2.2.1...but part of me just doesn't like using old, no longer updated software :-P :-(

However I did just find tixati, which looks promising. Interestingly, the seed numbers work as expected in tixati, so clearly it is just a qBittorrent issue. But if tixati doesn't work out and I can't find anything else I'll move back to uTorrent...or maybe write my own :lol:

Tixati doesn't support web-seeds.

And though I understand, that you don't like using older, non-maintained versions of anything, but would you i. e. have switched to Vista, if you had XP at that time? New is not always better. The Bittorrent protocoll is very old, there won't come any great additions to any clients anymore, because the protocoll for Bittorrent itself had to be developed to allow for further enhancements. uTorrent 2.2.1 can very well be regarded as a masterpiece and the best torrent client ever developed, don't be afraid to use it, I will probably switch to it again too.
