UPDATE (26/12): Article updated with CartoonChaos, The Occult and TorrenTiT signup info. See end of post for new entries.
Original Story: There’s certainly been a lot of activity going on in our private trackers section this holiday season. Lots more torrent communities have opened their doors to new members in celebration of Christmas and this has prompted us to post yet another collective open signup update. BitTorrent sites featured in the post include RevolutionTT - a general tracker, Awesome-HD - a high definition movie & TV tracker, AnimeBytes – an anime tracker, ScienceHD – a Sci-Fi tracker and RmvBusterS – an RMVB/x264 movie tracker. As usual, up to date site statistics, signup URLs, invite application links, full tracker reviews and other useful information is included with a brief description of every site.

It’s strongly recommended that you read the full tracker review before joining a BitTorrent tracker. This way you won’t end up in trackers you’ll never use and will save both your and tracker staff’s time.

    ScienceHD-application does not work. Blank page

  2. TEAM FILEnetworks // 12/25/2009 08:48:00 PM  

    Yes. Staff are working on it - check back later.

  3. Web Master // 12/25/2009 09:00:00 PM  

    ScienceHD have stupid administrators that acts like kids, expel you on irc and ban you without reason when we try to fill the sign up form that have there (apparently they were "just" kidding). Idiot. I don't recommend them. Also I have seen some review of ScienceHD and they have too little seeders/peers don't worth losing time with this tracker.

  4. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 12/25/2009 09:10:00 PM  

    @Web Master,
    I've talked to quite a few Sci-HD admins myself and I cant remember any of them acting like kids. Anyway there is an issue with the signup form but it'll be sorted out soon. If you like Sci-Fi content/documentaries, trust me it won't be a waste of time.

  5. aimseeker // 12/25/2009 09:34:00 PM  

    nice work filenetwork!!!!

    ------------ScienceHD -----------

    I WAS a member ..I got married and went on an extended honey moon ,when i git back I found out that they suspended my account ... the admit are all jerks .I tried to explain and they could care less ..what they don't understand is they need us more then we need them ..this is what they have on there interrogation in order to get an invite
    "Please answer the following questions with as much detail as possible. Longer and more detailed answers imply commitment. Also note, late answers will not be accepted.
    If you were disabled here, do not resign up using this form. That will be another rule broken, and you will be reported to other trackers for dupe creation.
    If you feel you were wrongly banned, come talk to staff on IRC"

    You get into IRC and they won't even talk to you ..they act like they are all gods are we are all criminals .. I hope there site fails ,just for being egocentric aholes !!! screw them !!

  12. kindreduk // 12/26/2009 05:52:00 AM  

    i have tried and tried to sign up, bu just keep geting an error.

    must have filled the application out 9 times.
    I would be greatful to anyone for an invite ..

  13. ScienceHD Staff // 12/26/2009 06:17:00 AM  

    First off, I'd like to thank the staff at FILEnetworks for making this article. We received many more applicants than we had originally expected thanks to the publicity. As for my purpose here, I came to address some of the complaints people had.

    @Web Master
    We respect your opinions. You were kicked because you were idling in our support irc. Despite the occasion, it will not change the fact that the irc you entered is a fully functional support channel. Members that come into that channel usually discuss sensitive information and do not wish to have that information shared with others. Hence, you and about 20 others were kicked from the channel.

    @warren
    Yes, you did not recieve a response but to be fair, you left the channel in less than 5 minutes. Please realize that all the staff are incredibly busy today spending time going through applications as well as spending time with their families. If you'd like, you're more than welcome to come back and discuss your account there.

    @kindreduk
    I assume you're talking about ScienceHD being that we're the only ones with invite-by-application. You have to wait for your application to be approved. You do not simply get an invite after the application gets completed. As of now, there is no ETA as to when everyone will get their invites. We've received an enormous amount of "Christmas Reading" (as I like to call our massive stack of applications :D)

  14. Spookmasterj // 12/26/2009 09:44:00 AM  

    I am a member of ScienceHD under a different username than I post to this blog, but I just wanted to say that the staff of this awesome tracker are more than fair, and they do what they feel is necessary to keep good members and weed out people that are not using the site.

    I have a personal issue coming up in January that will be taking me away from my pc for a few months, I sent staff a ticket explaining the situation and they were very understanding, helpful and prompt in their response.

    Anyone that has been torrenting for a while knows that support staff at any given respected tracker are very busy. If you enter a support IRC, you have to be patient. Some places it takes hours. The individuals that staff these trackers are human beings with lives, and they volunteer to do what they do. Cut them some slack, geeze.

    Keep up the awesome work ScienceHD...!!!!

  15. kindreduk // 12/26/2009 03:51:00 PM  

    Thanks SC HD staff for responding.

    What i was trying to explain in my post, is that my application was not being processed, and I kept recieving an error when i was submitting it.

    When i was asking for an 'invite', it was more out of frustration, that since i committed so much time on christmas applying, (only to not have my application fully 'submitted' that someone might actually be a little sympatheetic

  16. Web Master // 12/26/2009 08:21:00 PM  

    Idiot staff! Now 20 seconds to write my question on irc is idling... yes you are little gods, spoiled kids. First time i was kicked in less than 20 seconds I couldn't write anything second time i wrote "please wait" + "im writing my question" and i don't remember what the admins have wrote but clearly i understand that was some kid joking i get expeled from irc and banned. I don't mind anymore but these people you expeled arbitrarily will always speal ill of your tracker. Idiots. I wish your tracker to die forever if its not dead yet lol

  17. scutumcrux // 12/26/2009 10:04:00 PM  

    @Web Master...
    and you say "they" act like a child?what an irony...btw,thanks FILEn for the heads up...^^

  18. kindreduk // 12/26/2009 11:04:00 PM  

    Think its best not to be with this tracker, given the pedanticness of all of this.

    Love the whole idea of the tracker and what it represents in terms of content, but definitely feel that its just not worth it.

  19. rajhauns // 12/26/2009 11:19:00 PM  

    wats wrong with rev tt

    if u ban a country ip from signing up

    y shud u allow existing users from that country to continue as members

  20. Laennec // 12/27/2009 03:39:00 AM  

    Just want second Spookmasterj's comment!

    I am a member there for months now, ScienceHD is a must have tracker for it: content (ofcourse :D) + a good place to meet sciencejunkies from all over the world, starting with their admins :D + not ratioless but very easy to seed! and to keep good ratio (admins there will tell you ratio is never a problem, that's another reason i love them :p)

    one must only be an active member, admins there find it extremely insulting to join then not find anything to download :)

  21. warren // 12/27/2009 04:47:00 AM  

    these guys from science hd are full of it . one of the staff responded by saying "@warren
    Yes, you did not recieve a response but to be fair, you left the channel in less than 5 minutes. Please realize that all the staff are incredibly busy today spending time going through applications as well as spending time with their families. If you'd like, you're more than welcome to come back and discuss your account there."
    then why does it say when you come into IRC that if you were banned for lack of use that it was not open for discussion ? no discussion means exactly that!! NOW YOU COME HEAR AND GO BACK ON WHAT WAS WRITTEN IN IRC !!
    Besides why would I want to come back and discuss something with these kinds of people ..Your reputation is killing you ..If anyone joins all I can say is ..WATCH OUT !!! ---r.i.p

  22. voken99 // 12/27/2009 05:33:00 AM  

    @Warren
    If you previously had an user account at SciHD, but was banned/disabled for some reason, then that "it not open for discussion" you will NOT get your account reenabled or get an new account. I think you misinterpreted the statement, it doesn't apply for a temp ban on irc for idling on #support.

    It's seems to me that you just want to cause trouble just because you having problems getting an account on a tracker. It's their tracker and you are NOT entitled to anything as much as you believed it be to so.

    It's the holidays and the staff are humans too, they are busy and are NOT there to serve only you. If you were more courteous and not such a whiny bitch maybe someone will actually come and help you if you have problems.

I think you misinterpreted the statement, it doesn't apply for a temp ban on irc for idling on #support.

    Fist off let me start out by saying everything you saying is bullshit ..#1 I know what I know ...at the top of there irc it stated ..if you are here to talk about suspended account due to inactivity it's not open for discussion ....how the hell else am I supost to take it...

    #2 obviously you must be part of there tracker ..
    #3 why am I not the only one to feel this way ..I have been doing torrent sites for over 5 years and have never been so disrespected by anyone representing a tracker ..so you know what ...I really don't care ..I am involved in numerous trackers that wouldn't approve of such behavior ...if you do that's YOUR opinion...
    as far as being more courteous ..when i am told they don't want to hear it what else am i suppose to do ..push the issue...
    #3 NO I AM NOT OWED ANYTHING ,I UNDERSTAND THAT BEING PART OF A TACKER IS A PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT ..BUT TO TREAT PEOPLE LIKE THE WAY THEY DO IS WRONG...YES IT'S THE HOLIDAYS ,BUT I HAVE BEEN TREATED BETTER AT WALMART THAN AT THIS SITE ..SO BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT ...I AM SURE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH THIS ..
    #4 as far as starting trouble the truth is the truth ..ask yourself this ....I belong to way more exclusive trackers then there's so who has more to loose ..I really don't care but .....I will not be called a lair !!! who's the whinny bitch now ...the truth is just that ...THE TRUTH !!!

    thanks for proving my point ..childish jerk !@!

  27. scutumcrux // 12/27/2009 02:45:00 PM  

    @waren...
    Well all i can tell you is that i have been a member there for about five month now,and i've had a great time there,have found friends that i simply wouldn't find anywhere else,even among the staff,whome i can tell you are really warm,friendly and passionate about what they are doing(even on the Christmas day,which you'd expect they whould spend less time on there),so...there "must" be something wrong with you,and do i really need to say that?(just look at the way you are acting,the more you do what you are doing here,which is to prove a point that "simply" isn't true the more you look like you want/wanted to get into this tracker,if you really think it doesn't worth your time then move on)...^^

    ----------

    what is the problem? if i understand you are saying that im acting like a child... The problem is not with me but if you see there are many other people speaking ill of sciendhd. Im not alone in this discussion! There is something wrong with the mind of sciencehd administrator!

  29. Lion // 12/27/2009 08:24:00 PM  

    @Web Master,
    Screaming idiots can badmouth a tracker all they want but that wont harm its reputation. I have been a member there for months now (got in on the first open signup thanks to file networks btw) and so far its been awesome.

  30. Julie // 12/28/2009 01:37:00 AM  

    These conversations going back and forth are always so absurd. First we have, "ScienceHD have stupid administrators that ACTS like kids . . ." It's ironic that you're telling them they act like kids when almost every sentence in your post is grammatically incorrect. It's o.k. to have a negative opinion of a site, but you're the one who looks like an idiot for just name-calling. ScienceHD Staff - You shouldn't waste your time responding to posts like this.


    Warren - I understand why you were frustrated about your account being suspended, but don't complain about their interview/questionnaire process. There are a zillion trackers out there & it sounds like ScienceHD is looking for a specific type of member and trying to build a community. They 100% have that right. I'm a member of some exclusive trackers that don't care about anything except the amount I upload and download, which is what I'm looking for.

    The more you tracker collectors/whiners keep signing up to every tracker that posts open registrations here, the fewer of them we will see. Why would ScienceHD advertise their open registrations here if they have to deal with people like you? Why not just give more invites to their current members?

    Be thankful and respectful. Read about sites before you sign up and don't take offense if they don't want you.

  31. warren // 12/28/2009 03:59:00 AM  

    First off let me say one thing ..yes they have the right ,but so do I have the right to put down a tracker that treats people like crap ..I could care less about a tracker that at one point was begging for people .then they get too big for there own good and treat people like they are better then everyone else ..I was IN IRC and was treated like a criminal.all i did was try to explain the situation and was treated like sh*t ...so if by complaining and warning others is whining ,then you are damn right ...let the truth be told !!!
