It looks like you were seeding parts of your torrent files to other users. Seeding is sharing parts of files that people want to download. When you download a file, you are downloading pieces of the file from other users on the network. They are seeding parts of the file to you. When you seed to other users, you are basically allowing others to download the files you have downloaded.

Think of it as giving back to the community.
