Back in last April, we gave away 75 free invites to AnimaTooniC (ATC), a private torrent tracker specializing in anime, manga, cartoons and comics. Although it’s been almost four months since that giveaway was conducted, we still get ATC invite requests in our E-mail inbox. Well here is some great news for folks who longed to get into this tracker; AnimaTooniC is now open for public registrations (old news for those who follow us via Twitter). Open signup will no doubt attract lots of new members and bring some much needed activity into the tracker.
Even though it’s been invite only (with member recruitment mainly via IRC), ATC had managed to attract over 1300 members in the last three-four months. Over 1200 torrents have also been uploaded to the tracker during this time – pretty good statistics for a niche torrent tracker. However the site definitely needed more users as some of the torrents had low seeder/leecher activity leading to relatively slow download speeds.
It’s not only users and torrents ATC had been adding during the last four months. They’ve added several major new features to the site such as the Karma bonus points system, ‘Shows’ section, ‘Collages’ section and more. AnimaTooniC has gone through a redesign as well (see how it looked in the past) and now comes with three working stylesheets to choose from.
ATC’s main content categories have not changed over the past few months. It’s still a tracker specializing in Comics, Anime, Manga and Cartoons. There are some pretty unique releases on this tracker including some of ATC internal encodes. An updated screenshot of AnimatooniC’s torrent index (well a small part of it) is posted below:
Since registrations are now open, you no longer have to bother with IRC invite requests. A notice posted on the site reads:
Hello everyone, in order to be able to grow we have now decided to have open signups for everyone who wants to join. These will be open for an unspecified amount of time until we haved reached a certain number of registred users. So go on and tell all your friends about ATC!
NewComers Check The Rules Before doing anything. Then Say Hi!
Note that sometimes the confirmation E-mail might go to the bulk mail folder (happened to me once with Gmail). If you are still having registration problems Join: #animatoonic-support on server: irc.p2p-network.net
