Seeding/Uploading guidelines?

I have a massive anime library that I would love to share, but I was wondering what the best way to do so would be. Would it be better to have 12 torrents going at 3KB/sec, 3 torrents at 12 KB/sec, or something in between? If no one is interested in a file, then the unused bandwidth will go to one that needs it. (I have a ~300Kb cap. and am uploading an average of 1.5GB/day of anime) I was thinking the more people at slower speeds would keep them on longer thereby forcing them to share longer, but at what point is it too slow?

fyi, if you don't know: KB=KiloByte, Kb=Kilobit, and there are 8 bits in a byte

what do you think?

I'd upload new torrents you put up at 24 Kb/sec and devote
two other "slots" of 6 Kb/sec to reseeding torrents. Assuming
whatever you put up is popular enough, most torrents will remain
seeded themselves without "aid" from you.

And at 24 Kb/sec you can put up a lot pretty fast IMHO.

Consider using Super-Seeder if you only seed. That way torrent stays healthy since you seed rare pieces

You don't want too many upload slots, cause then you will get snubbed a lot.
But if you have too few (like 3) then you may not reach the target upload speed,
since not everyone will reach 12KiB/s (36/3). I voted for 6, I think that's a good number.

Oh, and Forse, using super-seed all the time may not be a good idea. It's really only useful if you're re-seeding or seeding an incomplete torrent.
If there already are enough distributed copies availible then it will only hurt the speed of the torrent.

As I mentioned above I suggested using SS only when you don't download (reseed).

Ok, i don't think i asked the right question to get the answer i was looking for. basically, i'm trying to get rid of as many of the red 0's in the "ul" column as i can with the limited bandwidth that i have for all the files i have. i am getting pretty fed up staring at multiple torrents that have been running for 48 hrs now and none of them are more then 20% complete and all have 0 seeders, so i decided to dedicate all my spare bandwidth to uploading bt files to help others in the same situation. (and you'll now notice that there are no baki II torrents w/out seeders, except #12 as i don't have it, unlike yesterday in which most had 0, so i know 9 different uploads at once will get the job done although not quickly)

so yeah, now i'm thinking setting up batches of 4-6 files in super-seeder mode to be rotated every 6-8 hrs.

with that, any suggestions?
