Good news for those wanting to get into SuperTorrents. SuperTorrents (also known as ST) is a veteran private torrent tracker that has been online for ages. The site is usually invite only and there hasn’t been an extended ST open signup in several months. However, members of STMusic (SuperTorrents’s sister site – a music tracker) now have the opportunity to register on ST without an invite; that is by using the special signup link provided on STM homepage. Note that this promotion too won’t last forever – signups will only be open for a limited time. With the upcoming launch of ST v2.0, this should be good news if you are looking for a new General/0Day tracker.
Announcement posted on STMusic homepage is quoted below:
2009-11-22 - Open Signups @ ST for STm Members Only!
As you may or may not be aware, STMusic has a parent site called SuperTorrents and for a limited time, existing STm members ONLY will be allowed to create an account without an invite. SuperTorrents handles all content other than music and will be the first of our two sites to receive the major programming and design overhaul we have dubbed ST 2.0. Get your account now and be ready for upcoming previews and demos of what to expect, on both sites, in the near future.
The notice above clearly says the promotion is only meant for existing members of STM – however the signup link is usable by technically anyone, even by those who don’t have accounts on the music tracker. While there is no real time automated check in place to see new users are members of STM, those who don’t meet the requirement may run into trouble if ST staff decide to manually verify. Either way we only recently ran an article on STM open signups so chances are that most of our readers are eligible for this promotion.
As mentioned at the start of this article, SuperTorrents is a General/0Day tracker - with over 12k users and 14000+ torrents, it’s a pretty large one at that too. ST tracks movies, games, TV shows and other general stuff (except music of course) and has decent download speeds and average pre times. In addition to individual releases by scene and non scene groups there is a good number of packs uploaded as well ( around 110 movie packs and 250+ TV packs as at 22/11/2009).
ST has been online for several years but it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for them – there were times they were plagued by hackings, uploaders leaving, controversies surrounding donations and various internal disputes. Things are however looking positive nowadays, with ST 2.0 planned to go live in the coming weeks, with many features and upgrades. ST runs on a custom tracker script which you probably won’t see anywhere else (other than on STM). The interface is user friendly and it has almost all the commonly requested features on a general private tracker. In terms of additional features, there’s been talk of ‘streaming torrents’ which probably will be implemented with ST 2.0.
Signups are currently open for existing STM members. They will not last long so get in while you can.
