Over the past couple of months, quite a few untouched DVD/Blu-Ray trackers have joined the BitTorrent scene. Their growth was definitely fuelled by the shut down of SweDVDR, which gave life to spinoffs such as Sparvar, SceneDVDR, DVDRSource and CareStreet. onlyDVDs is one such new untouched DVD tracker that was recently launched (it was initially known as Dreamzonept). We first posted about this site back in June – since then a lot has happened. onlyDVDs recorded some steady progress over the last few weeks and now they have come up with a major change; the launch of onlyDVDs v2.0
Site content has not changed with the launch of v2.0– onlyDVDs remains as an untouched DVD5/DVD9 tracker with movies, TV shows, anime, etc. They have however moved to a different tracker script (namely TBDEV) and there are huge changes in site features as well as in the visual theme. IMHO the new layout looks better than the previous – it has some nice category icons, etc. In addition, onlyDVDs seems to have some interesting off-site projects currently in the works such as an IRC tracer chan and a pre channel.
Transition to v2.0 is not without issues though – torrent index and the user databases seem to have reset (along with ratio stats). Even older members are required to sign up again. During sign up, some users have reported about not being able to receive confirmation E-mail.
However it’s not as bad as it seems. Torrent index is being re built and lots of older torrents are being re-uploaded as we speak. We are told by onlyDVDs admins that old ratio stats will be restored as well (all new members get a nice 20GB upload bonus anyway). A forum post on the site says:
please request for the old ratio that you have with the other script - refer your nick (if possible it should be the same as now).
you can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, if you are having issues with confirmation E-mail not being received, send a E-mail to noreply[at]mail[dot]onlydvds[dot]org specifying your username to get it manually confirmed (or you can join their IRC irc://irc.ptnet.org/onlydvds and ask for confirmation). Try logging in with your account after a while to see if it worked.
You don’t have to be an old member to sign up at onlyDVDs though – registrations are open and anyone is free to join. All new members get 20GB upload, 200 bonus credits and 1 invite upon signup.
