ChildBytes temporarily shut down

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 8/16/2009 | , | 8 Comments »

It’s always bad news when a tracker shuts down. It’s even worse when the said tracker is a niche site that served pretty rare torrents in the BitTorrent scene. ChildBytes, a private torrent tracker that specialized in kids content has temporarily closed down. Reason for shut down is not legal issues as one would imagine. It seems CB’s administration was fed up with the excessive hit and runs conducted by existing members of the tracker. The only good news available for fans of this tracker is that the shut down might be temporary. However there is no fixed ETA as of yet.

ChildBytes homepage (http://childbytes.eu) currently displays the following message:

Due to high number of hit and runs the site have been temporarily closed.
There is no estimated time on when the site will be available again.
// Childbytes Staff

And all hits are directed to http://www.childbytes.eu/faq.php where a YouTube video titled ‘Hubble Ultra Deep Field in 3D’ is loaded.

If you were never a member of ChildBytes, you can see how it looked in the past in our recent review of the site. In the meantime if you are looking for CB alternatives, you might try the the following:

    It is always sad to see good sites close. We wish the administration of Child Bytes good fortune on their future endeavors.

    Torrent Kids is only open for a limited number of members and then we will go invite only.

    the guy running this site was a complete idiot. Its a childrens torrent site and he leaves a rude , garbage, attack on his members. I hope he crawls under a rock and mutates back the scum he was.

    Hit n runners just need to die. I'm not a member of this tracker but I know hit n runners are turning the whole torrenting world into a mess everyday. You just need an admin to ban them all on your site, that's why few good private trackers exist. they fucking ban hit n runners.
