When The Dark Syndicate (TDS) entered the BitTorrent scene several months ago (September 2009 to be precise) , it quickly grabbed the attention of veteran torrenters. This was largely due to the fact that TDS had a strong connection with Araditracker, a BitTorrent legend. Although by no means a reincarnation of Aradi, TDS had many ex Araditracker staff members among its crew. It started out as a General tracker with a focus on community and TDS has by now expanded into a fully fledged private torrent site with the addition of new features including an autouploader bot, a fully functional ratio free tracker implementation and several other community features such as IRC channels and radio. If you are still not a member of this site here’s your chance to become one. We are giving away a limited number of invitation codes on a first come, first served basis.

The Dark Syndicate

When TDS initially launched, it didn’t prefer much publicity. The site didn’t stay open for long and became invite only after a short period of time. Focus was to build a tracker with a tight knit community, with preference given to active users rather than tracker collectors. Now, around six months since launch, TDS’s active user base hovers around 800-900 mark. They have active forums, IRC channels, a radio and in short have a pretty decent community.

Content and tracker features have also improved at TDS over time. A new autouploader bot has been added to automate and speed up the process of uploading scene releases to the tracker. The bot however was tweaked (even based on member input) to minimize uploading of spam releases – quality over quantity. The addition of autouploader does not mean TDS uploader team has retired. They too still upload to the tracker and do an awesome job at filling user requests. TDS request completion ratio currently stands at '94.59%. Some of the exclusive releases found on The Dark Syndicate can be seen on the screenshot below:

The Dark Syndicate Releases

If you aren’t aware, TDS has by now become a fully ratio free site. Users are no longer required to maintain a global ratio. They are however needed to seed back each torrent to 1:1 OR 72 hours whichever is possible.To quote TDS administration on this move:

Being a community we felt that Ratio’s and such weren’t needed to a certain extent – we are friends sharing files. We still have rules so the users who take and take and take (who should probably know better) will be reminded of the community aspect and the giving that should be done when they can.

Before we forget to mention, TDS is a family friendly BitTorrent tracker. There are no pornographic content indexed and even user Avatars are subject to certain rules; “Avatars must be safe for work, non-pornographic or semi-pornographic, and not even slightly offensive”.

As you may have already figured out, TDS is currently closed for registrations. However, you can use our exclusive invitation key to register a free account. Ratio proofs, speedtest are not required – simply sign up using the link below.
