There’s been a lot of General/0Day trackers popping up lately but as always, only a select few of these survive the test of time. Sweninjaz, a relatively new private torrent tracker for General content, is one of those few BitTorrent sites that has so far looked promising. The site may be best known for it’s ‘Ninja’ themed interface but it really has done well (in terms of content) as a general torrent tracker. Sweninjaz has been closed for public signups for the past couple of months but it is now open. Reason for the sudden open signups might have something to do with the impending shutdown of Swedish private tracker PirateTorrents.nu.
A news post on site homepage speaks of open registrations till this Friday (18/12/2009). A translated version of the same is quoted below:
Dear members, This is how at Christmas time, we were all a sad statement about the well-established Swedish tracker PirateTorrents.nu be shut down. We want the course to be able to continue the interchange and we have now opened regge for new aspiring members. Up to Friday, 18/12-09, we will be offering their members to have their stats transferred to his account here (Uploaded, downloaded). What we need is a screenshot of the era PT-profile, so that we can ensure that it is your IP address (Contact a staff member on this (not pulchi)). We also hope that you appreciate that it may take a while before we respond to PMs since become a part to answer.
IRC contest is still running, 100 people in the channel = 2 weeks Freeleech. You have until 22 December at you, then it’s over.
Merry Christmas wishes,
While open signups and account transfers are no doubt good news, this confirms the shutdown of PirateTorrents – that’s another private tracker gone. Anyways back to Sweninjaz. The site is only a few months old but it has grown at a rapid pace. As of 17/12/2009 there are over 5000 registered members and close to 10000 active torrents are tracked.
Sweninjaz is a tracker based on Sweden and the site interface is in Swedish. There is currently no way to change the language to English but this should not worry most international users. It’s easy to find your way around the site even without knowing jacksh1t about Swedish and more importantly, Sweninjaz tracks a lot of English content, namely popular scene and p2p releases. Part of the site interface and torrent index can be seen in the screenshot below:
As mentioned in the title of this post, Sweninjaz is currently open for signup. Open registrations are probably aimed at ex-PirateTorrents members but there is no check in place that bars regular users from signing up. If you are thinking of creating an account, you better do that quickly – although it’s said to remain open till this Friday, the site’s current user cap is at 6000 members and slots are being filled very, very quickly.
