If there are any readers who still haven’t got an account (surely you should have got one by now, if you’ve been reading FILEnetworks) on popular General/0Day tracker TorrentLeech, here is yet another chance to get one. TL is currently holding a free invites promotion for existing users of FileList tracker (filelist.org). This is different from the previous invite giveaways that involved TL’s sponsor Travian – this time around you are not required to register for a Travian account. All you need to do is to get on their invites channel and give them the E-mail address to send the invite to. Is this giveaway limited to FileList users as it’s claimed to be? Not really. Basically anyone can PM their E-mail on the channel and get invited for free.
Invites channel topic pretty much explains everything you need to do:
FOR FILELIST USERS! GRAB YOUR INVITE NOW! PM _w00t_ WITH YOUR EMAIL ADRESS O-N-L-Y AND THE INVITE WILL BE AUTO-SENT TO YOU.NOTE THAT THE BOT WILL BAN YOU FROM THE #invites CHANNEL AFTER THAT,TO PREVENT DOUBLE ACCS.HAVE FUN!!PLEASE DO NOT IDLE HERE!
It looks like the invites are being sent out by a bot (an IRC script). This could be the reason why everyone (not just FileList users) are able to obtain invites instantly. The giveaway has been going on for at least 2 days now. However, note that it could end any time, without warning (TL giveaways usually tend to stop abruptly). If you need step by step instructions for the entire process, continue reading:
- Join the TorrentLeech invites IRC channel. Invites channel details are as follows:
Direct Link: irc://irc.torrentleech.org:7011/invites
New to IRC? Click here to download mIRC and read a brief tutorial.
- Once on the channel, PM _w00t_ with the E-mail address you need the invite sent to. Make sure your message contains only the E-mail address – don’t send unnecessary junk such as ‘hi please send me an invite to……’ etc. PM’ing in most irc clients can be done by double clicking on the desired username - (on mIRC, list of users currently in channel is displayed on the right panel)
- If the giveaway is still active, you will instantly be invited– thereafter you will be banned from the invites IRC. This is done to prevent flooding. You will only get one chance so don’t screw it up.
As usual, don’t try to create dupe (multiple) accounts on the tracker. This will eventually result in you losing all your accounts, not just the duplicates.
Note: If you are not an existing FileList member and still request for an invite, chance are high that you will get it. However note that this is sort of ‘exploiting the system’ as the giveaway is really intended for FileList users - proceed at your own risk.
