Here is some good news for those looking forward to get into the ratio free movie torrent tracker PTN. PTN is one of those secret private torrent trackers that does not prefer much publicity. Not many know of its existence and site rules prohibit users from declaring the full tracker name or URL of PTN in public. Public invitation giveaways, invite trading and selling is also prohibited. So how does one get into this excellent tracker? This is where the external invite applications come in.

PTN logo

Before we move onto invite applications, let me tell you a little more about PTN. This tracker is around 1 years old and currently has a user base in excess of 2000 members. The torrent index comprises of an impressive 5200+ torrents – movies, official movie soundtracks (OST) and some TV shows. Both high definition and standard definition video files are featured. There are a large amount of exclusive releases on this tracker – close to 200 movie packs and around 100 full TV season packs.

Let’s now move onto the hot topic – what are the invite applications? PTN hosts an invite application at a special URL which can be filled and submitted by external users. If the staff thinks the applicant is good enough – he/she will be invited to the tracker. There are however a few things you should bear in mind before you apply. If you are a tracker collector/trader who just want an account on every private tracker (but not really use it), chances are that you wouldn’t survive for long on PTN. This is a community based tracker – you need to be an active member if you are to keep your account. So don’t even think about applying unless you really intend to use the site.

Also note that being ratio free does not mean you can hit and run. PTN rules indicate “Seed back what you download to at least a 1:1 ratio or at least try to. if it's impossible for you to seed to 1:1 then you must seed for at least 3 Days within 7 days of completing the torrent.”. Make sure you read the rules in full before you do anything on this tracker.

Note that we have not included the full site URL in this post – only the location of the invite application is given. This is to respect PTN tracker rules. Please do not post the full URL here or ask what it is – you won’t hear it from us.

Site Name: PTN

Invite Application URL: http://*********.***/comeandplay.php (do not use ‘www’ in the address)

Invite applications will only be online during this weekend.

    it is ok with IRC invite wait and showing 2 sites ratio's on picture

    but PTN likes to knew 4 sites ratio's and 2 other community site not related with torrent and asking such a nonsense questions on register screen...

    dudes are you gone mad?
    Are you saving the world with torrent links?


    i cancel my register with PTN which is LEVEL 3 site.

    i have to answer more important questions that your staff asked.

  2. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 5/16/2009 11:26:00 PM  

    I think they are free to choose whatever questions they like. It's not like they charge you for anything or force you to join the tracker anyway. Their site, their rules. my 2 cents.

    Don't mention our url bullshit is all ridiculous. What if I'm not even involved in torrenting, you will block my freedom to say something? I don't know why private trackers keep getting more ridiculous in their rules thinking everyone in the world cares about them.

  7. Silencer // 5/17/2009 05:05:00 AM  


    yes for your last words i mean to it.

    Torrent is fun yeah?

    not for getting us angry

    i am an ed2k releaser.

    i think the fair sharing is lies onto there.

    @lighting stuck tower

    you gave us a primary school answer

    thanX for that.

  8. Bobb // 5/17/2009 05:18:00 AM  

    I was denied. Sucks. I don't know why too since I had great proofs and always seed a ton. Probably because I can't provide Workprints or that I dont have a lot of content to share. Wish they did it in irc so I could actually talk to someone... I hate when sites dont let users say their name because you could most likely find it in one forum or another

  9. bedik // 5/17/2009 05:19:00 AM  

    thanks Lightning_Struck_Tower.
    @Fes- why do you bother to comment.
    that's the rules, so just live with it.

  10. Darkflight // 5/17/2009 08:24:00 AM  

    "Don't contact us, we'll contact you..." lol
    What do they think they are ? A kind of higly secret and essential tracker ? Ridiculous...

    But the best is :
    "Provide at least 2 links and profile screenshots to your most used community sites that are not torrents related."

    I consider it's none of their business, because there is no connection with torrenting... I'll never send this kind of details to enter on a tracker... Do they want to make an investigation for all new members to see if they aren't cops ? lol

  11. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 08:46:00 AM  

    Ok here is the deal folks, if you hate the tracker so much for its rules, simply don't join (or join another movie tracker thats open for signup).

    By the way, PTN is not the only tracker that has similar rules. They might have their own reasons for including such measures. It's the admins who pay server bills and it'll be the admins who go to jail if the site is raided.

    At least be grateful that PTN has given external users a way to get into the tracker - even if it's a little hard.

  12. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 08:49:00 AM  

    "What if I'm not even involved in torrenting, you will block my freedom to say something?"

    Rules apply for members of PTN tracker. How can you not be into torrenting and be a member of PTN at the same time?

  13. Mister // 5/17/2009 09:06:00 AM  

    All the questions & secrecy is to do any and/or all of the following:

    1.) Keep them below the radar of the MAFIAA and other related corporations.

    2.) Make sure worthy and knowledgeable people are invited.

    3.) Keep the community/site free of bad users.

    4.) Make sure you aren't a newcomer to the scene

    Rules are in place to keep a sites quality top rate. If anyone and everything was allowed the quality would suffer. Anyway you should not complain. It's their site and their rules. If you don't like it you don't have to join.

  14. Violated // 5/17/2009 11:04:00 AM  

    I got in after 15 minutes sicne i submitted the app. Movie packs here are very nice. Thanks file networks as usual.

  15. tejaslok // 5/17/2009 12:52:00 PM  

    LSK, you shd not a posted abt PTN cos this ppl dont understand wat the rules are made for. and
    "Provide at least 2 links and profile screenshots to your most used community sites that are not torrents related."
    means wat how much ur active in any other community as for they only wat good ppl in torrenting to be there so they are filtering !!

  16. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 01:09:00 PM  

    We have a lot of good Bittorrent users among our readership. So we don't think this article was a waste of time :)

  17. Silver // 5/17/2009 04:33:00 PM  

    wow this is some dumb shit.
    what's the point of this if there's no link?

  18. Mio // 5/17/2009 05:00:00 PM  

    Link has been removed!!!

  19. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 06:05:00 PM  

    If you are talking about the invite application, it's still there - not removed.

  20. Darkflight // 5/17/2009 06:53:00 PM  

    "By the way, PTN is not the only tracker that has similar rules."
    Sorry but yes it's the only tracker who ask 2 profiles links from a forum not linked to P2P... I don't understand why it's so incredible to point out this strange question lol
    Does this blog is only here to say hooow marvelous are all trackers ?

    Especially because it's completely useless to ask this question to avoid bad members or RIAA ones. Anybody can ask a friend to let him use its profile link from any community.

    Finally I don't see why we should be "grateful" to have this application. It would mean that PtN is an incredible tracker and deserve a so hard application. But it doesn't, its content is poor, PTP is even better, and it's not so private.
    (what a funny situation that a "secret tracker" needs to open signups to public lol)
    So good luck PtN ...

  21. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 5/17/2009 07:15:00 PM  

    "Does this blog is only here to say hooow marvelous are all trackers ?"

    It's there to help our readers discover new trackers and to help them get into them. Furthermore it's a blog - we tell the world what WE think of a tracker - our experience basically.

    "Sorry but yes it's the only tracker who ask 2 profiles links from a forum not linked to P2P... I don't understand why it's so incredible to point out this strange question lol"

    I'm not a spokesperson for PTN so i can only guess. PTN is a community tracker - they want members who are active on forums, IRC, etc. Not just those who leech torrents. I think this question is related to that.

    Once again, no amount of complaining you do here is unlikely to change anything at PTN's end. If you dislike this tracker just move on- there are always alternatives as you yourself has said.

  22. Weems // 5/17/2009 07:27:00 PM  

    Thanks for the information. I'm in after about 2-3 hours.

    My first impressions about the tracker - great site for movie lovers in terms of content. Love the layout. They seem to need a few more users tho.

    @whiners and haters,
    So you want to get into PTN but can't withstand this oh-so-hard application and tracker rules? Well you can do one thing you can fuck off and sign up for another site then. Trackers are better off without selfish morons who just want free stuff.

  23. zoomby // 5/17/2009 09:09:00 PM  

    Darkflight Will die when he will be told about FTN.

  24. Arif // 5/17/2009 09:28:00 PM  

    PTN rejected me, they were nice enough to tell me why ^^.i told them i didnt want friends :P, so if you want to get in make sure you tell them you want to make lots of friends ^^.

    from what i can tell its all easy from finding the url to filling in the Qs, but i have to say that it seemed like a j/k i really enjoyed it, PTN rules. ^^

    @Weems congratz at getting in but telling people to fuck off & calling them morons doesnt help, its like your pouring gas on a fire. not helpful at all lol.

    PS. FILEnetworks Blog rules thanks for all the hard work.

  25. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 09:33:00 PM  

    Please dont use offensive language here.

    Thanks for your input.

  26. iamse7en // 5/17/2009 10:53:00 PM  

    I was accepted, so thanks.

    They layout is good, and there are some good movies to choose from. I echo Weems, that they definitely need more users. Most torrents only have 1 seeder, and the most popular torrents don't have very many peers either.

    Despite that, it seems like a great site, and much thanks for the heads up to FILEnetworks.

  27. Da0xin // 5/17/2009 11:10:00 PM  

    I'm already on F*N with a decent upload, are these guys worth joining?

  28. TEAM FILEnetworks // 5/17/2009 11:14:00 PM  

    If you are a movie lover you would find PTN better than F*N in terms of content. Packs on PTN are also better.

    But F*N is a general tracker which has everything as you already know - PTN only has movies/TV.

  29. romey // 5/18/2009 02:05:00 AM  

    Just to make it clear, PtN is not a site for buffer hogs. The whole idea of ratios makes it a job to be on sites, and the main reason for not having a ratio is to try to put some of the enjoyment back into sharing files.

    And to echo a couple other comments, if you can't spend three minutes filling out the application, you probably wouldn't like the community very much as it is activity based, not just file based. our forum has just shy of 100,000 posts, and our irc is always filled with folks with a good sense of humor.

    And @ Silencer, levels are an outdated method of rating trackers and solely exists for people who treat torrent sites as a commodity, not a community, in which case we do not care for such thinking.

    Thank you to the admin here for respecting our desire to not have the full url posted ;)

  30. Da0xin // 5/18/2009 03:55:00 AM  

    Thanks for the info, sounds like a good site, but at this time I don't think I would be able to give enough effort into their community, have too many other sites and commitments

  31. Mooe // 5/18/2009 05:29:00 AM  

    I don't understand what they mean with providing a screenshot in question four. A screenshot of my profile page or what?

  32. Dan // 5/18/2009 09:26:00 AM  

    Thanks for the info. Seems like a nice enough site, just not for me.

  33. Mooe // 5/18/2009 10:21:00 PM  

    I passed. :D

  34. Silencer // 5/18/2009 11:43:00 PM  


    take a look at level3 sites if you have one...

    i think you dont have any thoughts about leveling and respecting who knows best about torrent site's general ups and downs.

    be up to date buddy.
    as i do.

  35. romey // 5/19/2009 01:19:00 AM  

    Um, I am one of the owners of PtN, so I am a bit more up to date then you bud ;)

    pwned :D

  37. Silencer // 5/19/2009 04:51:00 AM  


    i have TORRENT-DAMAGE dude

    get lost


  38. Triad_470 // 5/19/2009 05:05:00 AM  

    OMG Silencer how old are you dude?
    TD and PTN cannot be compared - one is a general tracker other is for movies. If you couldn't get into PTN it's your loss. I dont think anyone else give a rat's fart about it.

  39. Silencer // 5/19/2009 01:48:00 PM  

    talk with you is nonsence.

    it is also non of business to ask my age.

    if you gave them enough support (like you gave for PTN) one day you will find yourself begging torrent invites.

    think about it.

    before judging someone's freewill ideas and underhesitate him with asking age.
