PLEASE MAKE VUZE MORE USER FRIENDLY IN OPTIONS, TO BETTER EXPLAIN THINGS.
TO BETTER UNDERSTAND UPLOAD AND DOWNLOAD SPEEDS, TO BETTER UNDERSTAND PLUGINS, TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE USER INTERFACE WOUL DBE GREAT TO MAYBE SIMPLIFY IT FOR NEWBEES, HAVE BETTER EXPLAINATIONS OF PLUGINS THAT ARE IN ENGLSIH AND NOT COMPUTER TALK, VUZE IS AWESOME AS IS, BUT FOR MANY THEY CAN NOT UNDERSTAND SEEEDS PEERS AND WHY THEY SEE 30 OUT OF 140 SEEDS WHILE THEY ARE DOWNLOADING, OR 6 OUT OF 690 PEERS, THEY WISH TO KNOW HOW TO INCREASE THIS VALUE, IN ENGLISH TALK. MORE SEEDS MEANS BETTER DOWNLAOD SPEEDS? MORE PEERS MEANS THE SAME? THEY SIMPLY DONT KNOW. AND THE HELP PAGE THAT VUZE OFFERS DONT HELP DUE TO TO MUCH PC TALK NO SIMPLE ENGLISH WORDS THAT THOSE WHO NEED HELP CANT UNDERSTAND, AND I FEEL THAT ALL TEMPLATES SHOUL DBE INCLUDED, AS WELL THE BEST PLUGINS AREADY SET FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO JUST GET GOING WITHOUT ANY USER INPUT TO BETTER THE VUZE EXPERIENCE, AS WELL THE PORTS SHOULD BE SET UP TO 50000. OR TO THE BETTER PORTS THAT VUZE HAS ALREADY SAID TO SET THEM TO. THIS WAY USER INPUT IS LITTLE AND MORE WILL USE VUZE, I HAVE USED IT FOR YEARS I FIND MYSELF TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN VUZE BECAUSE I FEEL ITS THE BEST, BUT THEY SAY THEY DONT UNDERSTAND CERTAIN THINGS AS SAID ABOVE, MAYBE AN AUTO DETECT OF SYSTEM SETTING WOULD HELP TO SET VUZE UP PROPER FOR THOSE WHO KNOW LITTLE ABOUT TORRENTS, THAT IS ALL, OTHER THEN THAT VUZE IS SIMPLY AWESOME. ALSO THE NEWER VERSIONS OF VUZE ARE HARD TO UNDERSTAND FOR MANY, SIMPLY PUT THE OLDER VERSIONS ARE BEST, THE JAVA RUN TIME IS ALSO HAVING ISSUES WHEN MAIKING COMMENTS AND DISAPEARING, AS WELL WHEN YOU VIEW COMMENTS VUZE WILL DISAPEAR, "CLOSE DOWN"
could we have in options (every sections) an help button, that opens the corresponding wiki page, with the default browser or in sidebar / tab
it's really not as bad as you "tech savvy" people are sayin, at the bottom of the screen it shows up/down speed and if you double click them then you can adjust it to whatever you want, byte by byte. thank baby jesus you have this and not Limewire, bearshare, or that old one... Winmax(??) cuz this is too easy, jus search and click.
anyways, if you don't understand use wiki or jus play around til you git it.
l agree with you here as l wasn't taught about pc as they were not around in my days, the only pc we had then was in our head.
l was taught the kiss system (keep it simple stupid)
Vuze is torrent program that boasts a huge range of features and options for experienced users.
If you want to use something basic until you learn a bit more then try utorrent for a while. When you come across a setting you cant customize using that software, then its time to upgrade to Vuze.
hey if there's something that confuses you on some settings, i think you should just leave those things to advance users, the only concerned you should have is to download torrents that is not fake. its not vuze to blame on this in fact all of this can be yours for free....there are things that sometimes to be ignored and irrelevance.
i only know the basics so would be a great idea considering we paid for vuze + but not really given any easily understood instructions as to how to adjust settings and what they are for even
WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT US!!?? ;) (Seriously though) However, I do actually agree.

A lot of this is standard torrent client jargon, not even "computer talk" or "vuze jargon" specifically.
Dr. JAMES MCINTYRE commented
I absolutely concur with Scott Hodges
Hey, Anonymous, no need to be such a jerk. I know what a seed it, but I can't grow a tree with these seeds, can I? Or grow anything for that matter. I've been using torrents for years, and I'm quite familiar with that those expressions mean, but I agree that the difference between peers and seeds is confusing, and I have no idea how to improve the speed, or activate peers/seeds that are inactive for some reason.
Even when you post in anonymity you can be a decent person
Scott Hodges commented
It is defininatley difficult to undertand how to optimizing your speeds and not cheating and shutting down seeding. I always try and figure it out but I am not very good at figuring those things out. I just guess i thought that it would just automatically download at 100% and seed at the lowest percent but is not the case.

Thousands movies, Tv programes (videos) easy download.
Other entertainment programes availale.
Vuze Plus many extra programes download.
All the best regards, Thankyou.
Your comment was very hard to read being in all caps. I do agree with you though. I just pay my money and take my chances. Eight out of ten times I meet with great success.
I feel the community and the creators are helpful to those that need assistance, to a degree. And as it should be. Without the jargon and the implied knowledge that you should have, these explanations would be much longer and terribly disjointed.Your sitting on a computer, open a new tab and investigate when you get discouraged. No one can teach you better than yourself.

i really like this post. im not very computer savvy and i love vuze but its a little difficult to learn the ins and outs. more assistance for less advanced users would be awesome
HOW ABOUT STOP SHOUTING!
heres another case of a PEBKAC problem
" BUT FOR MANY THEY CAN NOT UNDERSTAND SEEEDS PEERS AND WHY THEY SEE 30 OUT OF 140 SEEDS WHILE THEY ARE DOWNLOADING" -->...this isn't computer talk...its normal everyday human talk applied to the computer....if u don't know what a seed or peer is....use a dictionary!....or the vuze wiki!
