Back when we reported about the launch of SceneRace v2 and the tracker going ratio free, there was huge demand for invites of this tracker. If you are still looking for one, here is some good news. Visit the ScR IRC channel and you will easily be able to obtain a free invitation, directly from tracker staff. In case you don’t know what it is, SceneRace is a general/0day private torrent site that runs on the Gazelle codebase. Since the launch of ScR V2, the site’s ratio system has been removed and ScR is now effectively a ratio free private tracker.
In addition to the many new improvements introduced in ScR V2, new features are continuously being added to SceneRace by its coders. One such addition is ‘Otto’ – a bot that can automatically upload zero day releases to the tracker.
Thanks to your support and heroic work by our newest developer, OTTO is finally here!
He's uploading stuff as we speak, although some categories will be temporarily excluded as we cycle through to find what gets hits and how much bandwidth each category uses.
Otto’s introduction will no doubt improve the site’s pre times and minimize the number of missing uploads since the process is now fully automated. ScR however needs more members –currently there are around 2700 users and 700+ active torrents. Some of the indexed torrents can definitely do with more seeder/leecher activity. Anyways let’s get back to the topic of this article – invites.
How to obtain a free SceneRace invite via IRC channel
UPDATED: ScR have added a web form for invite requests. You no longer need to login to IRC channels to request for invite (apparently a lot of readers were logging into their IRC after reading this post that it overloaded their server). Just visit http://scenerace.net/index.php?page=apply and apply for an invite!
Thanks to Braiden for the heads up.
