For most of us, Demonoid is probably the first private tracker (in fact it was semi-private) we managed to get into. The BT world has not been the same ever since its demise last September. It's popularity was such that it had (and still has) sites replicating it's layout. Anyway, for the folks who are breathlessly awaiting Demonoid's return and hoping for a miracle, you can get your hopes up.
Here is why:
It is with great sadness (and not a little relief) that I announce that I will be stepping down as admin of Demonoid, with effect from today.
Demonoid is currently suffering from a number of things, prime amongst these being my distraction with real-world issues, and so I have handed the reins over to a new administrator - a close friend of mine, which I trust completely and has the knowledge and time to take care of the site.
He will, in due course, be making his own announcements about the future of Demonoid. Of course, speculation over the future of the site is fun, but it is ultimately fruitless - you will all, in the near future, become aware of what the future holds. I trust that you will all give your support to the new admin as he finds his feet while he resurrects Demonoid.
Thanks again for your support in making Demonoid what it was and is.
Goodbye and good wishes - it has been a blast!
That's what the Demonoid administrator, an anonymous Slovenian who goes by the name Deimos, posted on SubDemon forums. Although it will be sad to see Deimos's departure, the site's return will be welcome news for most of us. Demonoid's tracker and RSS feeds have already started working again.
