New high level tracker dLL and random level changes

As some of you might have seen there has been some tracker level changes during the past couple of weeks. Here is a fast run through:

FSC is the most sought after "community" tracker but the rush to get in isn't as high as it used to be. Recruiting members openly from FST might not have been the the best choice either. One level drop from 9 to 8.

AOM reestablishes itself by jumping up one level to lvl 9. So at this moment we only have specialized content trackers at the second highest level. Exigo for lossless music, AOM for magic torrents and HDBits for high definition film and TV.

LFM releases loads of early internals and has had a good start. But invites are plentiful and recruitment happens on most tracker power user forums. Down from lvl 7 to lvl 5.

GFT recently opened invites and even allowed for Romanians and Egyptians to get in or get back. We therefor anticipate that the ban hammer will sound a few times in the future and GFT falls from lvl 6 to lvl 5.

Sweden's leading tracker Sparvar has closed its doors indefinitely and we've seen a surge of people wanting to get in. It flies (pun intended) up from lvl 4 to lvl 6. Another Swedish tracker Ti (The Internationals) which started of pretty well hasn't even come close to live up to its predecessor and falls from lvl 5 to lvl 4.

We would very much like to welcome a new high level tracker that goes by the abbreviation of dLL. To get in you most likely will have to gain access to a forum that officially doesn't exist first and from there register to the tracker.
Someone just told us however that member applications for people outside has been temporarily enabled. So hurry up! But you will first have to find a member that can help you with the application.

New additions: iFR, eLK, fux0r and Sinderella

First, uk-2 is in a very sad state. No users, no leeching, no seeding. One big problem (as the admins and sysops can't seem to understand) is that the design is flawed. And maybe you say: "That shouldn't matter, we're here to download stuff". We say: That might be true, but if you easily can find exactly the same general content at every other place why would you want to login to uk-2 where you risk temporary blindness every time. And only the name uk-t is sadly not enough to make a great tracker. We've seen the resurrections go down that way all to many times in the bittorrent world. We still hope for for the best but uk-two slides down from lvl 5 to lvl 4.

BTN has had some drama lately, Azza (founder of BTN) has been kicked out and he has probably stolen some donations too. No one really knows. Nonetheless BTN goes up from lvl 4 to lvl 5. Followed by DB9 (deepbase9) also from lvl 4 to lvl 5.

Most big porn trackers has usually been semi private trackers with huge user counts. That has probably also been their fall. After Cheggit left us late 2011 all addicts (many of them earlier refugees from Empornium and Pure TnA) scrambled to find new havens. Members spread to Deviloid, BMTorrents, Malacka and Empornium II. But there are also two porn trackers that had begun as private trackers and stayed that way and after the porn apocalypse has been getting more and more requests. One of them is Korean tracker Sinderella and the other one is fux0r. They both make their entry at lvl 3.

Bibliotik, is a tracker for e-books and audio books and is literally a tracker that is more than meet the eye. Bibliotik retired for some months and then came back. Invites are not that easy to get a hold on and the tracker joins trackerlevels as high up as lvl 5.

There has been much talk about two new music trackers. One of them is another lossless tracker called iFR. They have a small user base and some recruitment going on in tracker power user forums and alike. The other music tracker is eLK (Electrobits) but which although it's name is a general music tracker.

They started out hard fetched but has gone more and more generous when it comes to invites and the tracker has had open signups every now and then. Strangely enough eLK has been traded and offered vastly since they started out. iFR joins trackerlevels at lvl 4 and eLK joins us at lvl 2.

CN, LFM, UK-T, and Ti new year tracker update!

Just when we declared CN/TBH down for good it suddenly has one of those famous resurrections. No more TBH though. The original staff is back and the tracker is called CN or cosa nostra again. And no more open signups or posting of the url in public. Secrecy is once again one of the most important parts of this long longed for tracker. CN makes its return at level 7.

TTi is still down but a new tracker has started and it's doing really well gathering the lost members of TTi. It has sort of the same theme as the original and some of the staff is on the new tracker too. The name is now only Ti (theinternationals). TTi was actually the abbrevation of their old domain name
Ti is invite only. A lot of people (mostly swedes) is looking to join and the tracker itself joins Tracker levels again at level 5.

Uk-two, uk-2, uk-t or whatever you want to call it hasn't been doing very well lately. Uploaders quitting, no donations and a lot of other problems. As usual no one wants to board a sinking ship. We reckon this was not exactly what they planned when they first started Uk-t the second coming. The tracker is falling two levels from lvl 7 to lvl 5.

LFM (leech from me) has closed sign ups and is now invite only. This is where most of the p2p groups and dedicated UTN/iMAGINE members ended up when iMAGINE was busted and UTN went down. A small, tight knit and closed community makes getting invited pretty hard. LFM joins us at lvl 7.

GFT, Pedro's, x264, nCore etc. tracker level changes.

The movie tracker x264 is advancing once more. This time to lvl 7.

The level 10 tracker that went down is up again under a different name.

Old tracker has had so many domain and owner problems the last years that it's not even funny. The domain is changed yet again and the tracker is now called The tracker hasn't had open signups for ages but the old stats is gone and the doors are therefor now open. Filelist changes name and is out from the list.

Ncore advances from lvl 2 to lvl 5. is up from lvl 4 to lvl 5. GFT is up from lvl 5 to lvl 6. HDBits is up from lvl 8 to lvl 9. Pedro's BTmusic is up from lvl 7 to lvl 8. CHDBits is up from lvl 5 to lvl 6.

ScienceHD is down from lvl 6 to lvl 5.

TTG (TorrenTGui) and HDChina joins Tracker levels at lvl 5. Klatbits (k**, k) and DB9 joins the list at lvl 4.

TTi taken down etc.

Today TTi was taken down by the swedish APB (Swedish anti piracy agency). The site had about 25k users and were sharing about the same amount of torrents. Seems like running a torrent tracker in Sweden nowadays is getting harder and harder.

Raids against two file-sharers
The police did during Tuesday raids against two people in Växjö and Borås suspected of copyright infringement. The operation was directed against the site
According to prosecutors to site have made ​​available thousands of works, including films, using Bittorrent technology. Servers suspected to contain the site’s tracker, database and web site have been seized. Two people sitting on Tuesday arrested but has now been placed on large. Both deny the crime. According to prosecutor Frederick Ingblad, more people are assumed to have been involved in the operation of the site. Notice that led to the raid was made ​​by the APB.

On another note, a user has notified us about TBH's (The Black Hand) former CN's (Cosa Nostra) non existence. We've been waiting for their v2 tracker of TBH for almost half a year. We have not heard anything nor do we expect to hear anything soon. So we hereby declare CN/TBH dead once and for all.

IMAGiNE release group busted - UtN tracker gone

The Imagine movie release group has been busted. Apparently 4 of their 9 members has been arrested by the police. Their website: Unleash the net has been taken down and no new releases has been seen since.

Starting a tracker and selling VIP accounts for members to acquire the newest releases might have been a real bad idea. Sad to see a prosperous group and nice tracker go down like this. More info on TorrentFreak.

Skittles is on the 'being evaluated' list again. Until someone can send us an updated print screen of a page from the Skittles tracker with dates and number of torrents it will stay there.

Elite level 10 tracker closed down. Plus UK-T ressurection.

The biggest and one of the oldest level 10 trackers that has gone through quite a few domain and name changes during the last decade has sadly enough closed down.

Other news is that new (old) UK-Two joins the list at level 7. Former old elite tracker UK-t(orrents) has opened up once again after it's death some months ago because of a CD/DVD seller who named UK-t as his online supplier of copied material when he was caught. This is apparently not just a copy cat by people not related to the old site. As it turns out some of the old staff is running the site. And quite a few of the old members recieved invitations.
Recently there has also been invites  handed out to all members:
UK-two has given everyone invites for limited time
Invite a friend weekend
Lots of new stuff going on in the background people, more about that over the next 48 hrs
In the meantime we are going to have an “invite a friend” weekend, invites have been give out as follows:
User 1 Invite
PU up 2 Invites
Uppers 3 Invites
Invites are available on your accounts now for a limited time, as ever please take care to invite people you can trust and who will be active on site.

Other changes to the list are: FTN up one level to level 8. Ts-Tracker up one level to level 7. x264 up one level to level 6. CHDBits gets a lot of requests so it moves up two levels to level 5.
