Xtreme-Torrent – the think-geek.net

Hello you may be know me, Lindw0rm founder and former director of Xtreme-Torrent.

With some former members of the staff we decided to create a new site based on the same values
solidarity and sharing and hope to find the same friendly atmosphere. The tracker is intended general
and so you will find all kinds of files such as DVD, HD Movies, Games, E-book, etc …

After closing Xtrem-Torrent you have been a refuge to many different sites, I
therefore gives go Think-Geek.net

we give to all appointments, and restart all the
new adventure.

PTN – Invites

About invites

We decided to give out 2 invites to all user classes. Now there is a catch though, if we find a lot of bad users getting invited, we reserve the right to take away all invites, so please be careful who you invite. Try to invite people you know and trust, or you run the risk of losing your invite privileges forever. We want new members, but not at the cost of security.

Probable this will be the last time we give out invites to all members for some time. All invites, except for some classes, will be available till Tuesday.

From that point forward the only ways to have invites are:
* buy from gold shop
* donate
* internal invite application
* recruitment sections on other sites

BCG – Not Closing

Not Closing!!

There have been some rumours on the net suggesting we have got a Cease and Desist letter and we are about to close, and if asked we would deny it, so this news post may not mean anything as I am denying it

It is simply not true, I actually believe the deadline they said may have already past, but the thread in question has been deleted now. The only takedown notices that I am aware of, when we were in Hong Kong, they were from Take 2 interactive for the XBOX/PS2 versions of GTA San Andreas. The host asked me if I would take them down, I said No, they said fine we will delete the emails, (cant believe that would have been 2004/5, time flies), Other than those 2 at the same time, we have had nothing about any game.

Obviously things may change in the future, I am not going to be all blasé about it, and say they will never get us, we just never know what is around the corner, but there is no immediate plans to shut down (there is no future plans to shut down either).

Freeleech is on only because the SP system is down, if we had no freeleech then most members would be in Kitty Litter class by now, which would not be fare at all, and it would also mean none of them could download, I have heard people say they must be closing, because of the freeleech, that is just rubbish, we had to do it with the way we work and the hit and run script we have in place. It is also there so you can download what you want but then that is the fundamental point of freeleech anyway.

SP system, altinertia coded this from the start, its his baby so to speak, he has looked at it and said its a database problem, I spent 2 weeks tweaking the database but altinertia has not been seen nore heard of since, now I am not going to go all nuclear on him, as we all know real life can get in the way of the best laid plans, but we are going to have to do something, we cannot just sit here twiddling our thumbs as for me, Freeleech has already been on far too long. I believe we are going to turn the SP back on soon, but it will just be to test it, IE Freeleech will still be on, at least then we can get working on it if it is still broken.

anyway thats the latest, take it or leave it, its entirely up to you, but the only way we will go down is if we get hacked/DDossed, which is not beyond the realms of possibilty, but hopefully, unlikely.

BitLeechers – News

BitLeechers activity requirement set into motion

“Hello,

Today you are recieving this email for a very good reason. As a member of a torrent site you should be active. Not active as in just signing into your accounts every couple of days, but to be active in downloading. The community wont grow unless you become active in downloading torrents, making forum posts, adding comments on torrent pages, adding a shout in the shoutbox and listening to the radio or radio with a dj. In all of these areas you can earn bonus points to help you. As a new tracker it isnt easy and with members just signing up to just log in and not become more active isn’t a good way to help a new site grow. Your bonus points can be traded in for upload total to boost your overall Ratio’s providing what you download you cant seed back to 1 to 1. This forces you to seed each torrent you download back for 48 hours helping you to achieve the hours in bonus points.

So, as of today this is to let all the members know what we are doing. This will effect ALL; new members as old members who have not yet downloaded their first torrent. If you have been a member 6 weeks or longer and have not yet downloaded anything your account(s) will be disabled upon this 72 hour notice to you. Any member who has donated can disregard this notice as YOU already support Bitleechers. Any of you that have already downloaded your first torrent and have seeded it to Site Rules can also disregard this notice.

So as a new member and you fall into this category you are in jeopardy of losing your account here at Bitleechers. You will have no body but yourself to blame for this. If your account is disabled and we see you have signed back up with a new name or email and your IP’s match as a duplicate account then you will be banned!

Torrent Sites are about sharing back to the community and if you can’t atleast download a few torrents here and seed them then no sense you staying with us because we don’t want you here to take up room. We offer you the fastest content with fast Pre times announcing. We are in the top 5 announcing torrents and most of the time top 3. If you think other sites are faster then us then stay there, but I guarantee they aren’t.  

Now with that all said I will list the different ways below how to gain Bonus’s to help boost your Ratios.

Bonus System:

Any torrent you download over 100 MB You will recieve 0.5 Bonus points per hour per torrent.
Any torrent you download under 100 MB You will recieve 0.2 Bonus points per hour per torrent.
You will receive 1 point for each comment you make on a torrent.
You will receive 1 point for each post you make in the forum.
You will receive 0.1 points for each shout you make in the shoutbox.
You will receive 1 point for every hour you spend listening to our shoutcast radio stream.
You will receive 1 point per hour for Idling in irc or Live Chat.”

This email was sent to all members, regardless of activity, as they are trying to push their way to the top.

iTS Invites system coming back

Announcement: In-vite The Shadow

Invites are now opened to VIPs, releasers and mentalists. We believe the community cannot thrive without new contributing members every now and then. So invite anyone you feel would fit into the iTS experience.

In any event, be extremely careful with who you invite! Any screw-ups on the part of your invitee(s) will reflect badly on your account.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all members who have donated during our finiancial struggle of the past two months. Your continued support and commitment have always been greatly appreciated. : )

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Best of Luck to iTS hope you guys thrive.

What.CD News New Release Types

What.CD: New Release Types
We now have two new release types: “Concert recording” and “Demo”. The “concert recording” release type is meant for live music recordings that don’t quality as a full “live album” and it would be incorrect to classify them as “bootlegs”. There are many live music uploads on the site that need to be changed to this new release type. This release type should be used for anything allowed under “Live Music and Soundboards” from the upload rules. The “demo” release type was added so an artist’s demo material wouldn’t be inappropriately classified as an EP, Album, etc. As a reminder, the “bootleg” release type is for “unreleased studio B-sides” and similar things, and all users are able to change release types by clicking the “Edit description” button when viewing a torrent group. For more information on release types in general, see the wiki article.
