Well here is a forum you don’t see open for public registrations everyday. TemplateP2P is a specialized site that hosts direct download links (DDL) for premium content such as templates, scripts, 3D animation, photography and more. This is an extremely handy site to have if you are a student or a professional in web development/web design/graphics design and other related fields. Unlike most other lifeless DDL forums, TemplateP2P has given birth to a strong community of members who share and download fresh new premium content every day.
This is by no means a tiny forum with just a handful members. TemplateP2P currently has a user base in excess of 7000 members and hosts close to 50k non archived forum threads. Most of the forum threads on this site provided verified, non fake DDL/one click hosting download links to premium templates, scripts, CMS and forum content, Flash content, 3D and animation, fonts, stock photography, graphics, images, icons, vectors, wallpapers and lots of other stuff that are not usually found on torrent trackers or general/0Day DDL forums. An excellent collection of tutorials is also online under which content related to Cartoon Smart, Design Pro Video, Digital Tutors, Eat3D, EC-Council, Gnomon, Kelby, Lynda, Noesis, Photoshop Cafe, Photoshop Top Secret, SimplyMax, Talented Pixie, Total Training, TurboSquid and VTC can be found. Some related Magazines and e-books are also available. The following screenshot captures part of templateP2P’s forum index:
TemplateP2P is a closed community and registrations are only open once or twice a year. The last time this tracker opened signups was back in December 2008 and after more than 6 months it has once again opened it's doors to new members. A mass PM/forum post on the site says:
Well, Our last open sign up was during Christmas time. I think it might be time to open the flood gates of hell and let in some new fresh blood.
I know some people, *cough* operator *cough*, aren't that fond of open sign ups. Each time we may get inactive members or leechers, but each time we seem to get a few really good members too. I think that is worth it. Please welcome any new comers and help them become a part of the community.
I ask that any new members introduce themselves properly to the community here: http://templatep2p.com/forum/index.php?board=113.0
The event will last from June 3rd to June 5th. (Wednesday Through Friday)
As the notice above says open registrations will continue till the 5th of June. If you are interested, here is your chance to get in.
