UPDATE: ScL is now back and the site has open signups for 24 hours. Since tracker rules still apply, please do not post or ask for the URL – it’s not that hard to find anyway. For the official notice on open signups (posted on tracker homepage), see end of this article. 

Original Article: Fans of the ScL tracker (aka ‘The Clover’) were left stranded when they were greeted with the following message on site homepage yesterday “Domain ********* has been temporary suspended. Please contact Billing as soon as possible”. It’s been some time and ScL remains to be offline. Naturally, rumors have started flying about in the BitTorrent community, some even claiming the site is gone for good. Good news is that most of these stories are false – it’s highly likely that ScL will return, probably in just 1-2 days.

Although both the site and tracker are down, ScL’s IRC server is still functioning. And the topic in their support channel says:

News: ‘The site is down due to a billing issue... it will be up some time around Monday/Tuesday’

For the close to 6000 users of the site, this should be really great news. ScL is one of the better general/0day trackers launched in recent times - it has a great community as well as a torrent index with plenty of free leech packs (in ‘Depot’ section). And many would agree with me when i say that ScL is one the best private trackers ever, in terms of visual layout.

Open signup

As most of you now know, ScL is back and the site has opened registrations for 24 hours. This is a good opportunity for those who were waiting to get in. Quoted below is the official notice posted on homepage:

For the next 24 hours we will be having open sign-ups! Tell your friends! Tell you mom! Just don't tell Dan Glickman!
Lets welcome our new users to ********!
I would like to take this time to remind all users that dupe accounts will lead to both accounts being disabled.
Oh.. and account trading is a good way to end up in the level of hell reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theaters.

Note: ScL’s rules prohibit mentioning full site name or URL in public. We respect trackers wishes so please do not ask for these details, invites, etc on this thread. We are posting this because we (having posted news of several ScL open signups here) have a lot of readers who are already members of this site. Thank you for understanding.

    kimi, why do you wanna post that url? Sorry if you got banned or something from ScL. But that is not a tracker for n00bs.

    The ups and downs of the sites has increased in past 2-3 months. First itn went down then rbytes, scenelive, demonoid and now its happening with ScL.

    It's funny to see people thinking ScL is still an elite and high private tracker. Pretimes suck, content is very common, like many and many "0day" trackers on the net.

  16. Manoj Biswas // 9/29/2009 10:17:00 AM  

    ok with me, just logged in.

    Its against the tracker rule to mention their url anywhere so just search the following keyword in google and click the first result you get ... all the best ...

    "scenelife" inurl:signup

  17. - // 9/29/2009 10:23:00 AM
