UPDATE 5: HeavenTracker (HT), PeerPortal and LeechersLair are now open for signup for ScT members. Await detailed reviews of these sites later. ScL is now closed but invites are available for ScT members on their IRC.

If you still don’t know about the whole SceneTorrents (ScT) tracker shutting down saga, we suggest you read this post now. As we mentioned in the previous post, lots of other private torrent trackers have come forth to help out the stranded users over at ScT. Among the trackers that are offering free invites to ex-ScT members include high profile sites such as TorrentLeech (TL) and PolishTracker (PT). If you are currently a SceneTorrents member, you can ask for a free invite from either TL or PT (or both) on their invites IRC channels. Invite requests are handled manually so please wait patiently for a response. More information about each giveaway is given below.

TorrentLeech IRC invite giveaway for ScT members


TorrentLeech has helped many other BitTorrent communities in the past whenever they ran into trouble. TL did it with FileList and now they are doing it again with ScT. If you are currently a ScT member, all you need to do is to log into TL’s invites channel and do as the channel topic says. (You have to PM your ScT profile link and email to username mentioned). Note that this giveaway will only last for a few days. Invite channel details are as follows:

PolishTracker (PT) invites for ScT members


PolishTracker, another decent invite only Scene/0Day tracker, is offering invites to ScT members on their IRC. Again, you need to join their invites channel to obtain the invite. Be ready to provide a screenshot of your ScT profile “with current date and without any modifications, hosted only on imageshack.us or tinypic.com”.

HeavenTracker (HT) invites for both ScT members and non-members


HeavenTracker, a General/0Day tracker with blazing fast pre times and good download speeds, is also offering invites for ScT users. In fact, HT invites channel has been open for everyone for some time now (as we previously reported) so you will be able to request an invite even if you don’t have a ScT account. If you need more information about this tracker, we suggest you read our recent review of it, which can be found here.

Wait patiently for a member of staff/support.”

TorrentVault special signup link for both ScT members and non members


If you were a member of ScT you probably are addicted to fast pre times. TorrentVault, albeit not as old nor popular as ScT, is a rising star in the private tracker scene especially when it comes to new torrent uploads and pre times. We recommend you read the full tracker review to get an idea of what this underrated Gazelle tracker is capable of. Special signup link featured in our last giveaway is still live so feel free to register a new account if you need it. This will be valid for both ScT members and non members.

Site Name: TorrentVault (https://www.torrentvault.org)

    Until a little while ago TL stopped giving invites.

  2. Jbb // 11/29/2009 08:18:00 AM  

    PT IRC says my Dynamic IP has open Proxy , i cant join their IRC , is their any way to contact their Admins ?

  3. X264 // 11/29/2009 11:08:00 AM  

    I would never beg for a invite to a site. There are trackers like Extratorrent and x1337 that do a great job. Really? Why would a site dissallow thousands of people acess to the site? More people = $$ in donations. People cant donate if you wont let them in. Wise up, Smarten up.

  4. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/29/2009 11:17:00 AM  

    TL is still giving out invites. Do as the topic says.

    Not that we know of mate. Sorry.

  5. jarek // 11/29/2009 03:15:00 PM  

    Heaventracker is as well offering invites on their irc for sct users. Don't know why you don't mention them here especially if it's far better tracker than ie. polishtracker.

    HT has almost 18,000 torrents: english, german, polish and others. Great pre times, multi-national community and staff is one of the most friendliest out there.

    server: irc.vaultnet.org
    channel: #ht-invite

  6. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/29/2009 03:57:00 PM  

    Update the post with HT info. Thanks for reminding.

  7. S3CR3TGUY // 11/29/2009 05:04:00 PM

  8. NETVIRUS // 11/29/2009 06:41:00 PM

  9. Navoi // 11/29/2009 09:09:00 PM

  13. rstedfs // 11/29/2009 10:27:00 PM  

    The signup link for torrentvault isnt working for me ?!??

    Is it for anyone else ??

  14. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/29/2009 11:30:00 PM  

    TorrentVault signup link should work again (for now). Thanks to Demonoic for the help.

    TV are fast approaching their user limit so we're not sure if it'll work for long.

  15. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/29/2009 11:32:00 PM  

    Some more snap open signup updates were posted via Twitter

    Detailed reviews later.

  16. Matthew // 11/29/2009 11:38:00 PM  

    yeah torrentvault link is down, probably reached capacity and someone took it down.

  17. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/30/2009 12:03:00 AM  

    It's still working. Checked just now.

  18. David // 11/30/2009 02:40:00 AM  

    LearnBits is open

  19. sadasd // 11/30/2009 03:57:00 AM  

    can anyone tell me a good private german torrent tracker?

  20. Geo75 // 11/30/2009 04:35:00 AM  

    SCC has been banned in .il, .ro and india etc. However there are still people who can access their accounts created before banning these countries.

    Have a Question, for an account which was created post ban of these countries, can we request mods for accessing from these countries ?

    Will they
    1. ban the account (for such request)
    2. Can this be requested on IRC or via PM?
    3. Is it legal to have such account?

  21. gaurav // 11/30/2009 05:53:00 AM  

    hello boss
    i heared that gft also open door for sct member

    please tell me the process to get gft invites

  22. zoomby // 11/30/2009 09:13:00 AM  

    1 .ro is BANNED. Means no account exist from dis country.

    2. India , .il etc r restricted country. Means Acc which were created before can remain exact but no new acc can be created from such country.

    And yes its "legal" 2 have such acc

    And btw scc userlimit raised to 20000. looks like most of guys are migrating 2 scc.

  23. keshav // 11/30/2009 09:32:00 AM  

    @TEAM FILEnetworks

  25. Jukka // 11/30/2009 03:47:00 PM  

    ummmm, how do i take a screenshot of my SCT profile, if SCT is NOT functional anymore?!

  26. Batu // 11/30/2009 06:38:00 PM  

    Work your browser offline or your browser's offline function Jukka

  27. microd20 // 11/30/2009 07:07:00 PM  

    another new site that is opening its doors is seedbytes.com

  28. subir.c // 11/30/2009 07:34:00 PM  

    The torrentvault sign up link is not working and polish tracker needs a profile image. How do I do that?

  29. sebastien // 12/01/2009 01:25:00 AM  

    TV maximum users: 12000
    enabled users: 11998
    I guess signup is closed, 2 seats left but maybe from 2 unconfirmed users.

  30. sadasd // 12/01/2009 02:09:00 AM  

    # Maximum Users: 12,000
    # Enabled Users: 12,002

  31. Staunch // 12/01/2009 02:10:00 AM  

    Topic for #scc-support is “[ SCC Support ] The site is currently at full capacity but we are looking to upgrade within a week. After this we'll be using ScT database to determine ALL users eligible for an invite and send the invite to your ScT email. Until then NO invites will be given. Reqs: ~500GB transfer + ~1year old”

  32. puffnstuff // 12/01/2009 07:43:00 AM  

    i have invites (3) for ipt

  33. puffnstuff // 12/01/2009 07:51:00 AM  

    i have (3)ipt invites.

  34. Bob // 12/01/2009 08:08:00 AM  

    It seems like some of the most renowned trackers are actually the worst ones. ScL has abysmal pre times, to the point where I'm pretty sure people are just taking releases off other torrent sites and reposting it on their site hours later. It's kind of funny actually.

  35. Butters // 12/03/2009 02:10:00 AM  

    can someone post the stats for seedbytes, is it a good site to join?


  36. Dan // 12/03/2009 02:28:00 AM  

    Hopefully this will improve if some ex-ScT ppl sign-up. It is kinda sad though.
