Long standing general private torrent tracker SuperTorrents has opened registrations to the public several times in the past couple of months. In fact, their last open signup was earlier this month. If you still aren’t a member of this tracker, here’s yet another chance to create a free account, without the need for an invite of course. If what’s posted on site homepage is correct, this will be ST’s last public open signup for some time to come. With over 17500 members and 25000+ active torrents ST is already a pretty decent general tracker – however, don’t forget the fact that it’s poised to undergo a lot of changes including a major UI overhaul and the planned addition of many new features under ST v2.0. Considering all this, it might be a good idea to have an account registered on SuperTorrents.
For those of you who are wondering wtf ST v2.0 is, we have already posted a separate article about it earlier this month. You can read detailed information about ST’s next milestone including screenshots and a full list of upcoming features in this post. Even prior to ST v.20 launch, it seems that a lot of changes are happening at SuperTorrents. This includes changes to the IRC idle bonus, new ratio requirements and new contests for existing members. Quoted below is a news post highlighting some of these changes:
Required Ratio Extension, User Upload Contest, 2x IRC Idle Bonus & Open Signups added 3 days ago
- Users with ratios under .9 have been given 2 more weeks, or until March 30th, to bring their ratios to the new requirement.
- Users who require even more time may request further extensions from moderators or administrators.
- A User Upload contest has begun that will result in a Free Leech if there are 1500 new User Uploads.
FN Update: 300 more User Uploads required by 29th for weekend long Free Leech! – as of 28/3/2010
- The IRC Idle Bonus has been doubled for the duration of the contest.
- Our last Open Signup for the foreseeable future will take place on March 28th.
If you signed up for a ST account through one of our previous articles, you might want to pay attention to point #1 above. ST now has new ratio requirements if you are to survive on the tracker, your account needs to comply with them. New rules do apply for new members as well – below are a couple of important points that users who are signing up today should take into account:
- New Members (noobs) are now required to download or upload 5GB within 45 days of registration.
- Members of the User class are now required to maintain a ratio at or above 1.05 after 60 days of membership.
A detailed discussion on rule changes (explanation as to why they were implemented) can be found on this ST forum thread.
Anyways let’s get back to the open signups. SuperTorrents will be open for public registrations for one day only. As the notice on site says, this will be the last open registration for some months to come. If you are interested, use the signup URL below to create an account.
