UPDATE: TL is now back up. Read all about it here.
Popular private torrent tracker TorrentLeech (TL) has been down for nearly a day. The site’s sudden disappearance without notice has made some users nervous. Since the site was featured in our private trackers section several times, we thought of posting a brief update on the current situation. As per our information the cause of downtime is nothing serious – they have not been raided or been taken down. What’s forcing the site offline seems to be a fire at TL’s datacenter.
TorrentLeech IRC channel (irc://irc.torrentleech.org:7011/torrentleech) is not down and is buzzing with activity. The current channel topic is reads as below:
“SITE DOWN TRACKER DOWN - w00t sold TorrentLeech to Blizzard for gold,stop asking”
This is obviously a joke and was probably set up by a TL staffer who got frustrated by answering the same question again and again :p Anyways as it stands right now, it is only a matter of time the site returns. You can keep checking the homepage or join the IRC channel (which is public and does not require an invite) for latest updates.
P.S. – TL’s sister site PussyTorrents is also down, most likely due to the same reason stated above.
