It’s the holiday season and the festive atmosphere is everywhere –even in BitTorrent trackers. Many trackers seem to be offering bonuses to members such as double upload, free leech, competitions and open signups these days. Here is a quick update on how some of the most popular private torrent trackers are celebrating this Christmas.
1. BitMeTV (BMTV)
After declaring a relaxed invite policy for December 2008, BitMeTV (BMTV) caught me by surprise when they announced site wide freeleech today.
Santa Dropped by BitMeTV!!
This year he brought us all site-wide Freeleech.This will take place for the next few days before going back to normal. Please check the news posts for Updates. Also remember this just affects your overall total and it might not be reflected on individual torrent stats.
As you may know, Freeleech on BitMeTV is very rare. It definitely is a godsend for those who are struggling to maintain a good ratio so start downloading right now.
BitMe.Org which is probably the best E-Learning tracker out there, is celebrating this Christmas with global free leech till the 30th of December and then double upload for another few days.
It's that time of year again and we are happy to announce free leech beginning today and running through Dec 30th. after which double upload will run for a couple of days.
If you have any large video tutorials, E-book packs or anything else downloaded from BitMe, now would be a good time to do so (and build you ratio while you are at it).
3. SCL (The Clover)
SCL celebrates this Christmas with free leech, double upload and plenty of competitions. The entire site is on free leech till the 27th of December. They also have doubled upload enabled on the 25th and the 26th (double upload can be extended merely by participating in a competition). SCL admins have awarded all members with 1 temporary invite which will have to be used before the 27th of December.
Note: Mentioning full tracker name or posting SCL URL is prohibited.
PassthePopcorn, the popular movie tracker, is celebrating this Christmas with free invites, open signups and free leech. They have opened registrations for 48 hours and every new torrent uploaded during this time will be free leech. All new users will receive 1 invite upon signup as well.

Above is quoted from a new post on the site. Open signups and free leech will be enabled on the 25th and 26th of December.

And as a way to say thank-you, I have give all of our members, Kitty Litter and No Badge Of Honour included, 10 referrals.
According to stoi there are now over 330000 unused referrals in the system. Meanwhile they have implemented something called the ‘Download free week’ which is the BCG alternative to a free leech system. You can read all about it in this forum thread (members only).
7. RevolutionTT (RevTT)
I was expecting an open signup from RevTT but it was not to be. There are however plenty of competitions including Wallpaper Competition, Forum Christmas Hunt, RevolutionTTree Competition, Banner Competition and Cake Competition. Winners usually receive gigabytes of free upload credit.
8. Ace Torrents (Ace-T)
Ace Torrents, a private tracker with excellent pre times, is celebrating Christmas with free leech, double upload and open signups. According to Ace-T admins, signups will close on the 1st of January and will remain closed for 6 or more months. If you want to get in, now would be a good time.
