After a flurry of bad news about tracker shutdowns, here’s an open signup update for a change. LearnBits (LB) a well known E-Learning torrent tracker has opened public registrations after several months. If memory serves correct, last time we posted about LB was back in 2008. Since then, we’ve been hit with a large number of invite requests (even on months old articles) for this tracker, depicting the high demand it has in the BitTorrent community. This limited open registration period should be a great opportunity for all those who craved to get into this great private tracker.
During the past few months, a lot has changed at LB. And a lots more improvements are on the pipeline. As you may be aware, LearnBits currently runs on TS Special Edition tracker script. They are however planning to move to a new codebase, namely a heavily modified TBDEV source. Some of the category icons and site logo have already changed and the site is already looking a lot better.
Anyways LB has never been a tracker about looks. It’s known for it’s content rich torrent library which indexes a number of E-Learning, Educational torrents spanning across a number of categories ranging from information technology to medicine. E-books, video documentaries, test engines, magazines are just some of the stuff you’ll find on this tracker. A part of LB’s torrent index can be seen in the screenshot below
As of 30/11/2009 LearnBits tracks around 4000 active torrents. It has around 7500 registered members which is a strong user base for a specialized tracker. Site’s current user limit hovers around 7700 members. Speaking of user limit, there are only around ~160 free spots remaining on LB (unless the current cap is increased). When this limit is reached, public open signups will close. Signups were opened for a limited time anyway - A note on site states “In light of several popular trackers closing this week LearnBits will open its doors to new members for a brief time”. So if you want to be part of this great Elarning tracker, you better hurry.
EDIT: User limit has been increased to 7800. Kudos to MtnVision.
