There was a time when ratio free private torrent trackers were pretty rare and it was not easy to get into the few that existed. But as of late, we have seen more and more no-ratio trackers joining the BitTorrent scene. SceneRtorrents or SRT is one of the newest sites to join the ratio free club. SRT is a general/0day torrent tracker which tracks scene/p2p releases and its users are not required to maintain a minimum upload:download ratio.
The first thing I noticed about this tracker is its name; it immediately reminded me of SceneTorrents (ScT). Anyway SRT does not seem to be a ripoff or a copy of SCT other than for the similar sounding names. SRT currently tracks over 650 torrents and has a user base close to 1500 members. Note that this tracker has only been online for a month and these statistics are pretty good for a 1 month old general tracker.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that there are two sections on the top menu titled ‘Browse’ and ‘Browse 10MB’. According to SRT admins, torrents in the Browse10MB section are seeded by uploaders who have very high bandwidth connections:
As you can see, we have two browse sections. One, labeled 'Browse10MB' which is seeded by uploaders with 10 MB high speed connections and we also have a 'Browse' section for uploaders with a connection below 10 MB to use. If you think you could help out on sRT, then please apply to have uploader status .
Majority of the torrents currently indexed on SRT are in the Browse10MB section which should mean better download speeds overall. Note that most of the torrents have only 1 seeder – a problem common to all new trackers.
As for the content , SRT tracks many scene releases including 0day stuff. There is also a large number of packs available. As of 20/1/2009, there are 63 movie packs (x264, XViD) and 76 TV season packs online on SRT. I did not check if the all packs were unique to SRT but if they are, this is impressive stuff from a 1 month old private tracker.
As mentioned earlier SRT is ratio free. However that does not mean you can hit and run at will – you need to see every torrent for at least 48 hours total. The amount of data you uploaded to the tracker during this period does not matter – the only requirements is to keep seeding the torrent for a total of 48 hours.
At the time this post is being written, SRT signups are currently open. If you want to try out a new ratio free tracker, here is your chance.
