Ever since SceneRace (ScR) shut down their invites IRC channel, we have been getting a lot of invite requests for this tracker via E-mail. We (with the help of ScR staff) were going to conduct an invite giveaway but here is even better news; if you were looking forward to get into this tracker, ScR is now open for registration. As we have mentioned several times before, SceneRace is a gazelle based ratioless General/0Day tracker. After launching ScR v2 and going ratio free in February 2009, SceneRace plans to roll out third version of the site pretty soon. Just like v2, ScR v3 will add many new features and changes to SceneRace tracker.
One of the major changes that is to be introduced with ScR v3 is the return of a ratio system. A revived and revamped credits system, many new user classes, a streamlined user interface and lots of other features will also be added. Going back to a ratio system will probably improve the overall health of ScR’s large torrent index. Since the addition of an autouploader bot (nicknamed ‘Otto’), the number of torrents being added to the tracker per day has drastically increased. Otto currently uploads TV, HDTV, 0-Day and music releases to SceneRace – these torrents generally have good pre times as well.
Note that music torrents view on ScR is disabled by default. You can either enable it from your profile page or use the separate browse page for Music on the top toolbar to view these releases.
Speaking of statistics, ScR currently has 2350+ registered members and over 8300 indexed torrents. The current open signup will hopefully bring much needed seeder/leecher activity to the site. Signups will remain open till ScR hits the current user limit of 5k members:
Open reg enabled
We have opened reg again until our current 5000 user cap. If we meet it before the v3 is released, open reg will become closed reg. Otherwise, we'll raise the cap to 20,000 with the release of v3
All new members will receive 2 free invites and 2GB upload credit upon signup.
