During the past month we saw several new BitTorrent invite forums being launched. Can’t Get In University or CGI-U is the newest such site to hit the BitTorrent scene. Rather than blindly conducting invite giveaways and such, CGI-U plans to educate it’s members of user etiquette, advanced knowledge and best practices of BitTorrent. As the name suggests, the site is modeled after a university. Members need to advance to the next grade if they are to unlock some parts of the forums which have more goodies or to get access to tournaments, etc. Following is a brief description of CGI-U, as explained by one of it’s staff members:


"A new private torrent tracker invite site has just launched, big whoop right? WRONG! This site will not only be a place for members to gain invites to all of those trackers they always wanted, but before users are able to receive invites they must first go through a "curriculum" complete with a study guide and tests that they must first pass in order to advance to the next "grade". The first 100 people will have free registration, but after that it will be strictly INVITE ONLY!

Last part of this description needs to be updated. Due to the good response received by CGI-U even on launch date, registrations will remain open for two weeks.

Anyways all new members of CGI-U start out as ‘Pledges’. In order to advance to the next grade, you need to complete the required curriculums (read the study guides and take the tests located in ‘The Classroom’ section of forums) as well as meet other user class promotion requirements such as minimum no of posts, minimum rep points, etc. As you advance through the grades (Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, Alumni and so on) exclusive parts of the forums (aka Houses – see those badges above top toolbar) get unlocked. Each of these houses come with their own specialties and advantages. Also, don’t forget to check the ‘Tournaments’ subsection – it’s a great place to win post credits and even reputation points.

CGI-U Screens

Note that it hasn’t even been a day since this site has gone online. There are some sections of CGI-U that are still being worked on. For example detailed rules and FAQ for certain sections are still not available and some forum sections do not contain any threads yet. However if you have any questions or run into any issues, you can always seek help from staff through the ‘Help Desk’ section of the forums.

If you are interested, register and have a look inside – signups are open. IMHO the site looks pretty promising.

Site Name: Can’t Get In University (http://cantgetin.org)

Signup URL: http://cantgetin.org/register.php

P.S. – Almost forgot to mention it, invite trading and selling is banned on CGI-U.

Special thanks to CGI-U staff.

    banned" message while trying to register?

  2. Adz // 8/28/2009 04:42:00 AM  

    "The administrator has banned your email address. To contact the administrator click here"

    Clicking 'here' takes me to a page where I have to log in to send a message. Fail?

  3. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 06:21:00 AM  

    it is because your email is apparently on a spam list so yes your right = FAIL :)

    Have a nice day

  4. El // 8/28/2009 07:30:00 AM  

    Dude, why, after getting banned from TPS, would you decide to start your own site to educate people about shit you got banned for?

  5. haz // 8/28/2009 07:39:00 AM  

    /me lol'd at EI's comment

    lets see some pwnage.

  6. PJCman2001 // 8/28/2009 08:07:00 AM  

    yea its cause ur email has been blacklisted more or less im sure ur using a free email addy and they dont accept those so only way u can get in just like dididave is by using a email service that u pay for.... best of just using ur isp email addy then im sure u will be all set so u dont waste money for a addy and it will be banned!!!!

    Use a different email address preferably one with a Gmail account.

  8. ironmaid3n // 8/28/2009 10:02:00 AM  

    Guru, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    What is this? We can't even access the forum. Guide us tehwolf.

  9. torrent // 8/28/2009 11:08:00 AM  

    Tehwolf was a TPS member who got banned for breaking the rules and trying to request invites to trackers that do not want there invites offer publicly to people. so he goes and sets up his own site, and first thing i see him doing is getting invite to waffles! i would not trust this site or visit it again. If you want to be a member of a REAL forum where the big boys play then http://thepiratesociety.org is the place to be!

  12. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 12:22:00 PM  

    Alright I knew that this was going to eventually happen, i just didnt expect it THIS soon. Yes I was banned from TPS, it was very unfortunate however i have great respect for TPS despite the ban, and although i do not entirely agree with the ban, i do understand it, but let me make a few things VERY CLEAR. If you think that CGi-U is in any way the same as TPS, you are mistaken, it has its purpose, we have ours. plain and simple. another thing is I have been working on CGi for quite some time, before i was ever in TPS, so do not come on here making all kinds of accusations to things which you know nothing about. To TPS and its members, I formally apologize for my actions within the community which led to the ban. Nuff said. Oh and to the users who are having problems with registration, the site has quite a bit of security and i am sure that is what is causing the issues and i apologize but that cnnot be changed. here a few statistical updates of CGi-U:

    We have had 246 new registrations since launch which by the way was yesterday.

    The curriculum is about finished, all we are doing now with it is writing the tests

    We are having a referal tournament, and the user that refers the most members at the end of a two week period will receive X amount of rep points and
    X amount of post credits


  13. wairi // 8/28/2009 05:20:00 PM  

    nice site keep up da good work

  14. El // 8/28/2009 08:33:00 PM  

    tehwolf, please be honest. You have set up a site, which is the same as a feature they were suggesting adding to TPS while you were there. You have simply stolen the idea. And then you say "to get into all the trackers you want to". Dude you aren't even in what or waffles. Another noob forum run by another noob. Get some credit and reputation, then decide to set up your own site. Do something original. Don't copy the work of others, it just makes you look like a douche. Nuff said.

  15. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 08:48:00 PM  

    *looks at El*
    *rolls eyes*
    *brushes shoulders off*
    *moves on*

    more CGI-U statistical updates

    we are now at 325 users

    registration is still open

    we have a few ambassadors

  16. El // 8/28/2009 09:17:00 PM  

    Why do you not even do the decency of answering my words? I am happy to talk with you if you wish to suggest I am wrong or mistaken.

  17. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:21:00 PM  

    Simple answer: You are wrong, however I am a very busy individual especially with the overwhelming reponse to our new site so i simply do not have the time nor do i care to entertain you, like i stated earlier i am apologetic about my actions within TPS i truly am, but ive made peace with it, the fact that you or other members have not is not my problem. These are my last words to you.


  18. El // 8/28/2009 09:22:00 PM  

    lol, you noob. Good luck getting your dream waffles account. fucktard.

  19. mike // 8/28/2009 09:25:00 PM  

    Tehwolf was banned for requesting invites for no movement trackers on TPS.

    Plus this idea was stolen from TPS as well.

    BTW TehWolf, how come my Gmail address is banned from the site? I never even got an opportunity to join and you preemptively banned me?

    Don't want me posting the truth on your stolen site?

  20. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:26:00 PM  

    ok i lied i will say one more thing to you, i have a waffles account teehee.
    the end.

  21. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:28:00 PM  

    mike, i know nothing of the reason why your email is banned, it is most likely because you are listed on a spam site somewhere oops! Fail. and dont you think that even if you could register, that you would not be instantly banned for trying to slander me on my own site? oops! double fail.

  22. El // 8/28/2009 09:29:00 PM  

    Then why did you request another waffles account? You mean you broke waffles site rules looking for dupe accounts?

    Nice work for an admin of a forum.

  23. mike // 8/28/2009 09:31:00 PM  

    funny, how I am only on a spam list with one site on the net, and it happens to be your site.

  24. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:32:00 PM  

    i dont know what exactly you are trying to do, im guessing it has something to do with you not really knowing anything, but your still trying to make accusations maybe? anyways i have only ever had one waffles account which i did not get until about 2 days ago soo...

  25. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:33:00 PM  

    btw, you guys are really making TPS look like a bunch of ignorant young children right now, i doubt that the lead staff would appreciate you misrepresenting them this way..

  26. RedTheHat // 8/28/2009 09:35:00 PM  

    GUYS!! EL!! FFS!!

    Look, when people repetitively break the rules, they get banned and shit, it happens. Most of us arent worth a second chance, in this case, TehWolf obviously wasnt either. Some people decide to go out and try to fix it, man, shit I've been through it! Just, enough with the flaming out already. If its a stolen idea, its a stolen idea, if he does well at it, then props to him.

    TehWolf, I personally dont give a shit what happened at TPS, yeah, you were banned but that was something that you deserved, but you know what? Youre trying to do something good here, right now, and for that, my hat goes off to ya! Good luck man!

    Other people from TPS, FFS, chill!!

  27. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:35:00 PM  

    mike, riddle me this? how am i supposed to get your email?

  28. tehwolf // 8/28/2009 09:36:00 PM  

    Thank you red i appreciate that :)

  29. RedTheHat // 8/28/2009 09:40:00 PM  

    Oh, I aint sticking up for anyone in particular here, I'm neutral. Either way, good luck with it mate! Hope its a turn around for you. :)

  30. Image // 8/28/2009 09:47:00 PM  

    New image host!!!


    We're pirate friendly!!
    Digg hate us too!!! :p

  31. Adz // 8/31/2009 04:25:00 AM  

    It's ironic isn't it? A website called "Can't Get In", which I can't get in to. You know what? Fuck it.

    tehwolf, you might wanna check out where you're getting spam filters from, because I even created a brand new account to test with and still got that same error.

  32. Lilibet // 8/31/2009 03:04:00 PM  

    All this infighting is not gonna bring tracker reps to CGI-U. And bottom line is, the pirate community is not one that tolerates stupid pissing matches.

    All of you, chill.

    I made the mistake, once, of getting into a public pissing match over trackers. Believe me, none of this is ever worth it.

    Please, check your egos at the door.

    - Elizabeta

  33. bazza // 9/23/2009 04:09:00 PM  

    No, this is worth getting into a shit fight over.

    IRC Conversation when Wolf (aka, knowledge, the owner of CGU-I) was rejected from a tracker:

    WITHELD: what is your opinion on invite trading?
    wolfy: and im all for invite trading
    WITHELD: are you aware that many trackers frown on invite trading?
    wolfy: i know that oink did not care for it, however i feel that if you have invites why not be able to trade them for another invite, all that does is make the torrenting community more expansive

    How about this?


    Banned at both for being a trader, and the rest of his accounts coming very shortly, all accounts linked to his IP adress(es) and all E-mail accounts that he uses.

    People, if you involve yourself with this scum, you will get burned. This is a warning to all.

    by the way, I think its funny as hell that TehWolf begged on TPS for an invite to Waffles, and at the same time begged for what.cd subliminally, knowing that they are a no movement tracker, and knowing that he was disrespecting not only the most respected file sharing forum on the internet, but the most respected music tracker that is running.

    Dont invite this guy anywhere, dont allow yourself to be invited by him. He will be an outcast soon enough. He has already been banned from the majority of his trackers as it is. Dont deal with him, and dont deal with CGI-U.

    All his details have, and are continuing to be spread throughout the entire file sharing community.

    Fuck you TehWolf you trader piece of shit! You finally got whats coming for you!

  34. charlie // 9/24/2009 08:53:00 AM  

    This would make alot of sense. When I was a member there, I was the owner banning alot of people at random, and even trying to make someone out to be a trader/dupe account holder who is completely innocent. I have also just been banned for no reason, and if there was a reason, believe me I would share it with y'all. Massive power trip, just seriously, avoid this place. Not worth the hassle.

    And I dunno what his motivation is to start this place, and treat people like dirt, but he will get his own. Just look at the above as a good example.

  35. tehwolf // 9/29/2009 01:38:00 AM  

    you guys are liars, seriously, you make something so small out to be something soo big, you know thats not how anything happened, but whatever im done fighting with you TPS pricks, the right people know about you, and its gonna suck for you soon enough, you shouldve just left me the fuck alone...

  36. tehwolf // 10/13/2009 04:39:00 AM  

    Its gone, screw you guys i hate you all
