SceneSound tracker country bans lifted

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 6/16/2009 | | 3 Comments »

It’s pretty normal for BitTorrent trackers to ban entire countries these days. Many popular trackers such as SCC and BitMeTV usually have 2-3 countries in their ‘ban list’. Excessive cheating, scamming and account trading by users in a particular country is usually given as the primary reason for such mass bans. While it’s normal for torrent sites to ban 2-3 countries from accessing site/tracker (even that after careful consideration), have you ever heard of a tracker banning 24 countries all at once? Well SceneSound (if you don’t know about SceneSound, read this) did it earlier but the good news is that tracker staff have seemingly reversed this decision. 

The following countries were initially banned from SceneSound:

  • Za – South Africa
  • Ch – Switzerland
  • Ie – Ireland
  • Ar - Argentina
  • Mx – Mexico
  • Hu – Hungary
  • Tr – Turkey
  • It - Italy
  • Pl - Poland
  • Il – Israel
  • Ro – Romania
  • Nz – New Zealand
  • Sk - Slovakia
  • Sg - Singapore
  • Cn - China
  • Ru - Russia
  • Rs - Serbia
  • De - Germany
  • Gr - Greece
  • Es - Spain
  • Ec - Ecuador
  • br - Brazil
  • pt – Portugal

If you are a reader from any of the countries above and could not register the last time SceneSound opened signups, today is your lucky day. The country bans have been lifted and signups have been re-opened. Go nuts!

By the way, SceneSound has enjoyed continuous rapid growth of the user base as well as the torrent index ever since it’s launch. It now tracks over 5700 torrents and has an active user base of 4100+ members (and this tracker is only around two weeks old!).
