Long time readers of FILEnetworks Blog as well as most private tracker enthusiasts should be familiar with Torrent-Damage (TD)tracker. It’s an excellent private General/0Day BitTorrent site which’s been online for more than 4 years. Being a private tracker, Torrent Damage is usually closed for public signups. Since the launch of TDV2, their invites system too had been disabled. Here is some good news for those of you who are willing to get into this tracker –TD invites system is back up and invites have been given to every existing member above ‘Power User’ class.

Note that Torrent-Damage no longer has the boring old layout they used to have about an year ago. Lots of improvements were made to both the tracker and the site during the launch of TDV2 – this included a major user interface overhaul. The site now runs on a new source which is lightning fast, user friendly and full of features. Another recent new addition to TD is the ‘Special Packs’ feature. These are exclusive packs containing movies and music chosen by TD uploaders, Staff and FLS personnel. Torrent Damage currently tracks close to 9500 active torrents and has a user base in excess of 40000 members.

Coming back to the invites topic, it seems that a beta version of the invites system is now online. Several existing user classes have been given free invites (these were in fact given about a week ago):

  • Power Users – 2 invites
  • VIP – 4 invites
  • Uploaders – 5 Invites

If you want a TD invite, the best place to look would be the TD invites IRC channel. It’s quite easy to obtain an invite if you follow the instructions:

  1. Join the Torrent-Damage invites IRC channel. Note that the invites channel is only accessible via the web based IRC client Mibbit (mIRC does not work unless you are TD staff or uploader).
    Go to http://mibbit.com/chat/ and enter the following details there:
    Server: irc.torrent-damage.net (click on the ‘server’ link to enter server name) EDIT: If you are unable to connect, try falcon.torrent-damage.net server
    Channel : #td-invite
    Nick: A nickname of your choice 
    mibbit TD
  2. Once on the IRC channel, type !invite to get step by step instructions you need to follow in order to get invited.

In case you are wondering, the instructions you’ll get by invoking the !invite command are given below:

1) Take a speedtest from http://www.speedtest.net and LINK us the result (Share your results, Direct Link (third link at the bottom))
2) Make a screenshot of your ratio on any other site OR utorrent/vuze stats
3) Make the ratio screenshot available on an imaging host (eg: tinypic)
4) Announce your screenshots/links to this channel
5) Wait patiently and see if somebody would be kind enough to invite you

TD staff are nice folks – don’t piss them off by spamming the channel or by sending PMs without permission. Follow the instructions and you should easily get into this great tracker. Good Luck!

    This is one of the most incredible trackers. The pre times are really great and the speed is incomparable.

    Agreed it's a great tracker. Nice staff too.

    You guys post this, then we start getting 20 users per hour in our IRC channel (many with this blog in their screens).

    I invited 30 users myself yesterday :P

  16. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 3/23/2009 05:26:00 PM  

    Hope you guys got some good members from here. Keep up the excellent work you've done with TD.

  17. Unknown // 3/23/2009 06:17:00 PM  

    Actually, many of the users with this blog in their screenshots had great ratios and speeds.

    Before your post I was rejecting 50-60% of users... 90% of the people with this blog in their posts met our requirements :)

    Thanks for the inflow of good users :)

  24. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 5/16/2009 10:15:00 AM  

    Well no one will 'get you' an invite. How hard is it to follow the process as stated in the article?

  25. ragidals // 6/09/2009 04:43:00 AM  

    The client screenshots no longer apply.
