it does count. before submitting a torrent you should check a few other torrent sites (ie: torrentz.com) make sure there is not already a popular one out there. if so take that one and upload it here instead.
if not after you create a new torrent it's a good idea to submit it to other sites as well. best to take advantage of all users on the web.
if your torrent already has more than 5 peers, then the show should be listed in the main list by the next update (updates happen once per day)
That's Great!! I much appreciate the information. If I understand correctly, it is preferred that a "Hot" torrent be put here as is instead of recreating it to a ShareTV torrent?
yes, exactly. more users on a torrent faster it will download
