If you don’t know what it is, iFi is another of those secret trackers with a fake login page, rules against public mention of URL, giveaways & trades, etc. News is that both the site and the BitTorrent tracker will close down for an indefinite period of time pending maintenance. Earlier there was an attempt by iFi staff to migrate to the Gazelle codebase but this did not prove to be successful. From what we know, the goal of downtime is not to move to Gazelle but to further improve the layout and site functions.
Quoted below is a notice sent by iFi staff regarding the upcoming downtime:
2009-03-14 - Site is closing soon
We do not fugitives anywhere , We 're closed temporarily for the purpose of renovating the site, and improving the system .
You can meet in the IRC channel in the meantime here
We'll send you email, with new details .

As mentioned earlier iFi is a ‘secret’ tracker with a very small community of less than 1000 members. It’s a general/0day tracker with mostly scene releases (which can also be found on most other general trackers as well). One of the positives about iFi is that they have a nice looking layout. Apart from that I really feel it could do with some more leecher/seeder activity as well more indexed torrents.
