It’s great news when a private torrent tracker that has only had open signups twice in two years opens it’s doors to the public. It’s even better news when the said tracker is one of the best BitTorrent sites around. Romanian ShareReactor, an excellent general tracker with movies, music, games, E-books, music videos, imagesets, documentaries, TV shows and more, has increased the site’s user limit by 1500 slots and have opened registration for new members. With good pre times, great download speeds and it’s own internal p2p release group, RsR is indeed one of the best General trackers currently in existence.
Since the word ‘Romanian’ is in the tracker name itself, one might think that this is a site with releases local to Romania. Well it definitely is not. RsR’s layout is completely in English and so are most of the releases. Apart from a few DVDRs that come with optional Romanian subtitles, torrents indexed are major scene and p2p releases which are in English. The only thing totally ‘Romanian’ about this tracker is probably their forums (which most of you won’t even use anyways).
RsR is not a new tracker by any means. Launched back in 2005, it’s one of the older private BitTorrent sites around. As of 20/6/2009, it has close to 5000 registered members and tracks over 6600 active torrents. The relatively low member count (when compared to other General/0-Day trackers) can probably be explained by the lack of open signups. RsR has had only two open signups in the last two years – one in January 2007 and another in November 2008.
Speaking of the content on RSR, it has everything a General tracker should have and then some more. RsR is home to the well known p2p release group iAPULA – expect to find a lot of their releases on this tracker ranging from individual movies, music to torrent packs. The following screenshot captures some of the packs found on this tracker:
RSR has a quite uncommon site layout which is easy to navigate. Torrent pages/search is easily accessible and a small section on the top right corner of the page give you access to all your personal settings and downloading habits on the tracker. As mentioned earlier the interface is completely in English.
Anyways if you were begging for RsR invites on BitTorrent forums – it’s time to close those threads. RSR is currently open for signup and you can get in without an invite code. At the time of this post there is space for over 1400 users. Check it out.
