A pleasant surprise for those who thought FileList.org was dead and gone. It looks like the tracker might live to fight another day. I’m pretty sure majority of FileList’s users thought the site was gone for good when things because quite. Hell, TL even gave away invites to FileList members who were seemingly stranded. Anyways now it’s good news all around - Both FileList homepage and it’s BitTorrent tracker are showing signs of life after an extended period of inactivity. New torrents are being uploaded and there are several new announcements posted on site, some of which briefly explain the reasons for recent downtime.
Quoted below are several news updates quoted from site homepage:
2009-09-22 - We greatly apologize for the downtime. Explanations will come soon, it mainly has to do with the admin being on summer break.
2009-09-22 - If you have lost your password, click here to recover it.
2009-09-22 - Note: If you are trying to recover a forgotten password and you’re using hotmail, you will need to disable junk mail filters to receive the confirmation. Also make sure to look in the junk mail folders.
Things are looking positive even on the IRC channel. Channel topic reads:
Topic is ::: Filelist UP We're back! :0 sorta! Bare with us! check announcements soon for updates.
I’m sure a lot more information regarding recent inactivity will be made available in the coming days. More importantly, normal service might resume soon at FileList – over 20 new torrents have been uploaded today itself and more are being uploaded as we speak.
FileList.org is closed for signups and they do not have any IRC recruitment ongoing. This is just a heads up for existing members who thought the tracker was gone forever – it’s alive.
