Although we’ve covered hundreds of private torrent trackers here on FILEnetworks, the same cannot be said about BitTorrent invite forums (this is one aspect we hope to improve in the future). In fact, TrackeReactor (TR) is only the second BT news/invite site to be featured on this blog, first one being The Pirate Society. Unlike most file sharing related forums, TR is not usually open for signup – users either need to donate or wait for an invite from an existing member if they are to get in. Note that this is not a huge forum such as FST – TR is a small, private community of members that has been around for quite a while.
Although it’s open for signup, the past few days have not been particularly good ones for TrackeReactor. Their domains got hacked and the site was down for some time, leading some members to believe that TR had shut down its operations for ever. However they have bounced back and the forums seem to be fully functional once again. No data loss is apparent – user base of ~2400 members and the database of and 27000+ threads are seemingly unharmed.
Speaking about what TrackeReactor has to offer for its members, you can pretty much expect everything you get from a regular invite forum. Invitation giveaways, BitTorrent news, invitation requests, tracker reviews, tracker support (via site representatives) and seedbox discussions are just a few of the topics discussed on TR. Following screenshot captures the ‘BitTorrent’ section on their forums:
Note that if you are intending to create an account and immediately make a couple dozen invite requests on TR’s requests section, don’t even bother signing up. To reap the benefits granted by this community, you need to be an active member – for example invitation giveaway threads won’t be visible to folks who have a post count lower than 50.
As mentioned at the start of this article, open signups are a rarity on TrackeReactor. We do not know for how long the signups will remain open. If you want to check this site out, now would be a good time.
