GFT (GForces Tracker), the popular ratio free zero day torrent tracker has gone through some changes. The site’s user class system has been completely revamped and 13 all new user classes have been introduced. This has of course changed the site’s existing promotions scheme as well. A bunch of new user classes is not all the changes that GFT has undergone – their coders have finally fixed an issue with dynamic IP that’s been driving some users crazy over the past few months.

Ever since it’s launch, GFT has not been the most dynamic-IP friendly tracker that was around. Although there were barriers for users with dynamic IP to register on the tracker or to download torrents, they needed to have the same IP they had when the torrent file was first downloaded throughout the leech/seeding period. If the IP was changed during this time, user had to log into GFT with the new IP in order to use the tracker. Since IP changes are frequent with dynamic IP based connections, needless to say this annoyed the hell out of some users. Good news is that it’s all been fixed now.

As for the new user classes on GFT – there are 13 of them. Here is a summarized list with user classes and requirements that have to be met in order to get promoted (quoted from faq.php):

    yehhai,
    I'm sorry but private trackers are not so secret nowadays and articles like these reveal nothing new that anti piracy agencies already didn't know about. They have people paid just to sit on their asses and surf the web, infiltrate trackers, etc ,etc.

    P.S.- this is not the only place trackers are being discussed in the open. However if tracker admins dont prefer publicity and lets us know, we usually take the posts down.

    lol @ elitist attitudes.

    How's that e-peen stroking coming along, ben?

    Mininova and other public trackers are great especially for obscure or old content you can't find on private trackers. Private trackers are good for speeds, packs, community, and quality control.

    Let's get real. Private trackers haven't been "private" for a long time now. Just look at the recent TL infiltration.

    To all private tracker users...

    If you think that some nobody like you can get into some 1337 private tracker and a multi-billion dollar trade group can't, you've got to be fucking delusional.
