About a month ago we reported about a new specialized HD torrent tracker titled Awesome-HD. This was a private torrent tracker launched by p2p encoder EuReKa – Awesome HD looked very promising and the member count quickly shot up past 3000 in just a few days after launch. However there were lots of problems with the site - members who logged out were not being able to log back in (Error 500) and lots of others were getting internal server error messages when trying to load the homepage. Good news is that Awesome-HD has re-launched and the annoying errors seem to be fixed.
It looks as if the site was rebuilt from scratch – the torrent and user databases have been reset. Currently Awesome HD has around 2000 registered members and tracks ~20 HD torrents. Expect these stats to improve in the coming days as it’s only been 1-2 days since the site came back online. A bunch of other changes too have been brought about by the re-launch:
- Free leech is not currently enabled. As a compensation, minimum global ratio requirement has been lowered from 0.7 to 0.3
- Scene releases now seem to be allowed on the tracker (Awesome HD started out as a non-scene/p2p releases-only tracker)
- Inactive accounts will now be pruned after 14 days. To quote tracker admins - “We want an active community with real members.”
- Bookmark and YoutTube functionality has been added
Since the user database is reset, everyone will need to re-register on the tracker. Good news is that Awesome-HD is currently open for public registrations (it will stay open only for another 24 more hours and then become invite only).
