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.
