Back in 2008, private torrent trackers based on the Gazelle codebase were a rarity. But now the situation has changed. While sites based on TBDEV and TS Special Edition are still plentiful, Gazelle script has become hugely popular among SysOps/coders– new sites based on it are being launched every month and even some well established, older sites have migrated to this template (if you need more info about Gazelle, scroll towards the end of this article). Anyways we noticed that a lot of Gazelle trackers are open for public signup right now – although most of these sites have been covered before on this blog, here is a summarized list so that you may easily discover and join the sites you like.

We have linked to the full site review beneath the description of each tracker. This is done for a reason – without blindingly registering on all sites that you see, read the review and get an idea if it really has content that appeals to you.

Description: HDAhoy is a new gazelle based HD tracker. Back when the site just started, several of our readers as well as some of our editors got a mass mail inviting them to join HDAhoy (email addresses were possibly obtained from another tracker’s user database). In most cases this would have counted as ‘spam’ – not the most ethical way to get new members as we see it.

What is Gazelle Codebase and what is a ‘Gazelle tracker’?

If you are a member of several private torrent trackers, you may notice that a lot of them have the same standard layout (with some amount of customization of course). This is because they are based on a common template such as TS Special Edition or TBSource. Gazelle is a similar tracker script (pioneered by the crew at which has some advanced features as well as security, reliability and performance enhancements.

For example, the hardware resource usage of a Gazelle based tracker is significantly lower than that of a tracker using TBSource. This results in the site’s ability to cater for a larger user base with less server costs. Gazelle also offers more customization options for site administrators with it’s CSS based layout. Gazelle’s benefits are not just for SysOps. Users will immediately benefit from it’s fast navigation and user friendly interface. Tons of other features such as tagging, wikis, knowledgebase, categorization by artist, title, album, etc which will add more value to the site, are available with Gazelle. If you want to know more, just sign up for one of the trackers above and see for yourself. The official page of Gazelle Codebase can be found at

Note: Some of the new ‘beta’ trackers based on Gazelle were not included in this post. Also, only torrent sites with open registration were included (does not include trackers open with IRC recruitment). Think we missed a site? Let us know via E-mail or as comments to this article.

  9. TEAM FILEnetworks // 9/04/2009 11:19:00 PM  

    On what site do you get that message? Message sites display when the search does not match any results can be customized on gazelle - you are probably seeing a customized 'no results found' error.

  10. Lost // 9/04/2009 11:54:00 PM  

    Yea, that's our custom search message (changing that as well lol). We were experiencing adventures in host switching recently, so we're now touching things up and fixing some bugs. Again, apologies lol

  11. Lost // 9/04/2009 11:57:00 PM  

    haha apparently we did change that already, looks like you're talking about another gazelle site. That is the default no results found response though.
