During the past two and half years, we’ve featured here on FILEnetworks Blog many different types of private torrent trackers. Out of all those torrent sites, I don’t think there was any other tracker that matched the content on Conspiracy Central. As we mentioned back in 2008, Conspiracy Central (CC) was a private torrent tracker that indexed all things related to conspiracy theories, secret government projects, myths, paranormal activities, etc. However some of you might have noticed that CC is no longer accessible from its former URL http://tracker.conspiracycentral.net. This is because the site has re-branded itself as ConCen and is now accessible from a new domain. We don’t know if there were any conspiracies involved with the move but the site definitely wasn’t shut down.
The move from Conspiracy Central to ConCen (which if I remember correctly was due to an internal dispute and one party threatening to sue the others if they continued to use the name Conspiracy Central) has not resulted in any data loss. All user accounts, torrents and even forum posts have been migrated to the new location. Despite being a very specialized tracker that caters to a select segment of internet users, ConCen seems to be a very popular torrent site. It currently tracks over 8800 torrents and has a huge user base in excess of 26000 members.
Indexed content is where ConCen becomes really interesting. Whether you believe in conspiracies or not, you’ll surely find some crazy ass torrents on this tracker. Some of the topics covered on ConCen include conspiracies, UFO incidents, secret projects, secret societies, religious and historical mysteries, legends, ghosts, monsters, assassinations, ‘big brother’ and so on. The screenshot below might explain this a little better (although it captures only a faction of the torrent index):

ConCen does have scene releases but majority are p2p originated torrents. Works of unknown authors as well as reputed publishers such as NGC, Discovery and BBC can be found on this tracker. Available formats range from Video documentaries to PDF E-books. Don’t forget to check out ConCen forums (http://forum.concen.org/) – it hosts some pretty interesting discussion threads as well.
