PTFiles (PTF) is a private torrent tracker for general, zero day releases. This tracker went online in mid 2008 as a reincarnation of Phoenix-Torrents, a defunct general tracker. Since then, PTF has grown steadily and by now the site has become a good community for BitTorrent downloaders. An overhauled version of PTFiles (titled PTF 2.0) was recently launched with lots of new features along with enhancements to site interface and navigation.


In terms of content, PTFiles tracks both scene and non scene releases. As of 10/3/2009, there were close to 2750 users and 1850+ active torrents on this tracker. From scene releases to torrents unique to this tracker, PTFiles has a healthy flow of new torrents. The following screenshot captures several of the unique torrent packs uploaded to PTF. More similar packs can be found under the TV Packs/Seasons and Movies/Packs categories on the tracker.

When it comes to new features & enhancements, PTF 2.0 is packed with them. Apart from standard BitTorrent tracker features such as arcade, shoutbox, forum, trivia, etc, some really cool features such as the ability to create new themes (thanks to this feature PTF now has over 35 themes), the genres feature, all kinds of bonus systems (reputation points, karma bonus points, IRC seed bonus, etc), Requests/Offers sections, Wiki and lots more. These extra features will undoubtedly give PTFiles an advantage over the several hundred general/0day private trackers that are already online.

The site runs on a heavily customized version on TBDEV – the layout looks cool and presents a lot of information to the user. For example try browsing to the description page of a torrent – Scene info, IMDB link, trailer, youtube trailer, ratio after download (projected) & karma points are just a few options you’ll find there. This is just one example of attention to detail @ PTFiles tracker.

If you are interested in joining this tracker, the good news is that the signup are currently open. Each new user starts with 7GB free upload credit as well as 5 invites :) Check it out – PTFiles is a nice tracker and an excellent BitTorrent community.

    I think Phoenix-Torrents has returned to the ashes; I visited their site and got one of those keyword-filled content-free welcome pages with the infamous female student with a maroon backpack were showing lots of promise, but I guess were careless by missing a payment; whois revealed that the domain registration was created yesterday and expires in a year.

    Perhaps it will rise again though?

  14. djkoatsy // 5/29/2009 05:37:00 PM
