Great news for lovers of E-Learning & infotainment content. As we previously revealed via Twitter, Docs.Torrents.Ro has returned. Docs.Torrents.Ro was once a hugely popular private torrent tracker for E-learning content. To the disappointment of many of its users, Docs shut down back in last April leaving many stranded in the seas of BitTorrent. Now here is the good news – after almost 7 months of downtime, the site has returned in grand style. It now sports a brand new look, an overhauled codebase and runs on a new domain. Name of site remains the same (Docs) and their tagline (‘Knowledge Overdose’) too remains unchanged. Some of the most experienced staff/admins in the BitTorrent community are behind this project so expect more good things in the future from new Docs.Torrents.Ro.
As you might have already guessed, Docs is a private tracker from Romania although it mostly tracks English content. It’s a veteran BitTorrent tracker that has a history of over 4 years. What’s even more great about the return of Doc’s is that the site has retained user information as well as forum posts since the time of shutdown (if you can remember your old username but not the password, you can recover it). With sites like Docs returning and new trackers such as DocsBits being launched it’s looking pretty good for those interested in E-Learning/Documentary niche. Staff of the tracker remains largely unchanged from its previous incarnation. Behind the new Docs project are moderators/staff/admins from the community portal Torrents.Ro who are also behind other well known private trackers such as RsR (Romanian ShareReactor), LastTorrents (Open) and Freshon.TV. The owner too remains the same – new Docs is run by the same admin who ran the old site (and did an extremely good job of it considering he ran the site without donations). New site’s welcome message reads:
After some time offline, we are back.
Let's continue what we started so long ago, so... start uploading, seeding and learning !
Apparently, the folks behind the tracker haven’t been sitting on their asses doing nothing for the past few months; there are lots of improvements and new features visible in the new Docs.Torrents.Ro. First of all it now sports a sleek new interface that’s lightning fast to navigate and very user friendly. With a torrent browse page with multiple panels, the layout looks like a hybrid of Freshon.TV’s and LastTorrent’s interfaces (which is a good thing). Docs’s codebase seems to have been revamped as well – current one looks more optimized with faster loading times and error free navigation.
As of 12/11/2009 there are around 525 torrents indexed on the tracker. Considering the site has only been online for about 1-2 days, this is a great achievement (torrent index is is being rebuild from scratch). Expect this number to increase rapidly as days progress – there are a lot of new torrents being added daily. Content on Docs ranges from video documentaries to E-books and spans across multiple categories including education, infotainment and lots more. Scene releases as well as lots of P2P uploads are indexed.
No matter how excellent a site is, it would suck if new users cannot get in easily. Well you shouldn’t have any problems getting into the new Docs as the site is currently open for registration (although we don’t know till when EDIT: There are around 20000 free spots left, as we were told by the admin). If you love E-books and documentaries, you’ll definitely love this tracker. Check it out.
