Just noticed that SceneX (sX) is open for signup. This private torrent tracker had been closed for about a month and signup was only available via recruitment threads on various BitTorrent forums. SceneX is a scene releases only tracker that does not allow p2p uploads on the site (unless it’s a request being filled). It’s still a small but growing community that is relatively new to the BitTorrnt scene. sX is built on the new version of TBDEV torrent tracker script – not much customization is done and the appearance looks somewhat similar to other less customized TBDEV based trackers such as Scene Inspired, etc.
Launched back in April 2009, sX is roughly four months old. During this time around 700 torrents have been uploaded to the tracker (~300 active at time of this post). These stats are not bad by any means but if sX is to compete with other leading 0-day trackers the number of torrents uploaded in a day would need to be higher. Also, most of the indexed torrents are seeded only by the uploader – more leeching/seeding activity is needed and this would hopefully be rectified as the user base grows. If I remember correctly sX started out as a ratio free tracker. However a ratio system is now present on the site and it is not known if the site would go back to being ratioless anytime soon.
As mentioned earlier SceneX is a scene releases only tracker. Most of the major scene releases are indexed. Although there is a separate category for packs, currently it only has two torrents indexed. Below is a screenshot of sX’s torrent index (part of it):
Since sX is built on the new TBDEV script, all new featured associated with this template are available on the tracker.
Signups are currently open and all new members will receive 2GB upload credit, 200 free bonus points, 5 free leech slots and 1 free invite. Also note that sitewide free leech is enabled (at the time this post is written).
