Here’s a pleasant surprise for all BitTorrent fans. GFT, one of the fastest general trackers in existence, has opened their official invites IRC channel which has been closed for more than a year. GFT is a General/0day tracker which indexes scene releases of movies, music, games, E-books, TV shows and pretty much everything else that originate from the warez scene. The site is known for it’s blazing fast pre times, sleek user interface, innovative user class system, fast download speeds, etc. Additionally, GFT is ratio free and is one of the most sought after trackers in the BitTorrent community. If you still aren’t a member of this tracker, the opportunity awaits you in their official IRC invites channel – if you play by the rules, you have a great chance of getting in.

GFT Tracker

Please make sure to read all the rules before logging into the Invites IRC channel.

Rules

  • You need to prove that you are a good BitTorrent user who are aware of BT best practices in order to get a GFT invite. Requirements are - ratio proofs from all private trackers you are currently a member of, their profile links and a current SpeedTest.
  • Have your ratio proofs, profile links and SpeedTest ready before you make the invite request (that is, before logging into the invites IRC channel). Delays will not be tolerated due to high demand and staff will move on to the next person if you fail to provide them quickly.
  • Do not spam the IRC channel. Wait for your turn before PM’ing anyone.
  • Folks from Romania, Egypt and Turkey are not allowed to request for invites. These countries are banned on the tracker.

Details of the official invites IRC channel are as follows:

UPDATE: Due to heavy demand, the invites IRC channel may reach its maximum allowed user limit occasionally. When this happens you will be transferred to the Invites Waiting Room instead.

GFT currently tracks over 11200+ active torrents and as mentioned earlier is one of the fastest scene trackers in existence. This is usually a private tracker that is considered difficult to get into – invites are hard to come by and signups are almost never open. Existing user base is very small (around ~1200 members) but are extremely active. GFT is gearing up for the launch of GFT v2.0 which is the next major milestone for the site. v2.0 includes a ton of new features including a complete overhaul of the visual layout  - some of the early screenshots are available on site homepage. Anyways if you do manage to get in, expect good things to come your way :) 

Good Luck!

    This site has some serious code issues apart from having a long list of staffs....

    1.Old torrents are automatically deleted even seeders r there.

    2.User uploads and packs are pathetic Mostly XXX packs looks like a porn tracker rather than a scene rls tracker and they run away without sharing atleast for 24 hrs.

    3.Automatic upload gets stuck and has not been fixed for months.

    4.Donations hardly Reach 100%. No point seeding for long and collecting Karma points because it can't be converted into Invites unless donations reach 100%.

    +ve's ratio free tracker with 48hrs seed time limit but hardly any leechers

  3. SteWieH // 4/13/2010 10:11:00 AM  

    ignore shadow. every site will have some sort of issues or unusual quirk. a new version is rolling out soon.
    GFT is a awesome tracker
    and yes we do have alot of porn but who cares? i mean if your turned off because of that. you need to go out and get some air or something. if you dont like it hit the dont show xxx torrents.

    thanx

    Thank you filenetworks as always.

  6. Thomas // 4/13/2010 10:58:00 AM  

    add Shadow to ignore list lol

  7. LorD Of DarkNeSs // 4/13/2010 11:19:00 AM  

    Thank you so much .. am in

  8. iLMVAT // 4/13/2010 11:22:00 AM  

    I guess they need more donors lol.

    My advice is if you're the kind of user that that likes to really integrate into a community (be active in IRC, the forums, occasionally participating in the uploading process, even donating) there are much better sites for you out there.
    If all you're interested in is speed then know that the tracker SCC is vastly superior to this one. SCC is someone l33t and you may have a hard time getting into that one. If that is the case the next best option for general/0day scene for you would be TorrentVault.

    By all means, go to the invite channel and get yours. This is the only way that's worth joining GFT tbh.
    If a regular member would invite you you would have to be active there out of guilt towards that user. this way you can have a look and realize you don't need it without being a jackass.

  9. StockZilla // 4/13/2010 11:22:00 AM  

    For some reason I've been banned from IRC. All I did is connect to the room? What's up with that?

  10. iLMVAT // 4/13/2010 11:26:00 AM  

    @ StockZilla

    your country may be on the ban list that the author mentioned in his post.

    don't beat yourself over it though.. you're not missing much

  11. StockZilla // 4/13/2010 11:28:00 AM  

    I saw that in the article, but I'm an American, and I'm connecting from the US.

  12. Alan // 4/13/2010 11:36:00 AM  

    ONE BIG THANK YOU!

  13. - // 4/13/2010 01:46:00 PM  

    Im in!

    Process took like 10 minutes max, most of that was waiting.

    Thanks

  14. Eoghan // 4/13/2010 04:01:00 PM  

    what does it mean by ratio proofs? Screenshots?

  15. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 4/13/2010 04:38:00 PM  

    Eoghan,
    A screenshot of a private tracker you are already a member of - this should show your current ratio on that site.
    Something like this:

    Above screen has some information edited out but some trackers require unedited proof.

  16. Castagnety // 4/13/2010 05:41:00 PM  

    Pretty sad because good users from banned countries can't join. Yeah, I know there are a lot of bad romanian users, but not all of them are bad. And no matter how good are my stats on other trackers I am member, being romanian close all doors for me.

  17. Xen0veR // 4/13/2010 05:46:00 PM  

    Got in, thanks for the update.

  18. Andrew // 4/13/2010 06:47:00 PM  

    Casta, GFT is not the only ratioless Scene tracker. There's FTN and FSC, and for you it shouldn't be a problem to get invited there as you're one of the TPS staffers.

    Also, there are some GREAT Romanian tracker out there, the 1st one that comes in mind is iPlay, of course.

  19. Julian S. // 4/13/2010 07:12:00 PM  

    chan is completely packed, reached the 40 user limit, nobody can get in.

  20. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 4/13/2010 07:14:00 PM  

    Just wait for things to clear off a bit. Staff must be having a hard time dealing with hundreds of requests.

  21. Insane // 4/13/2010 07:43:00 PM  

    how to do that .....???

  22. Castagnety // 4/13/2010 09:06:00 PM  

    Yeah, Andrew, you are right, but giving my example I only wanted to point that maybe banning entire countries is a bit unfair for the good members from those countries.

    chan is completely packed, reached the 40 user limit, nobody can get in.

    Yes, is completely full. Fuck!!!

  25. Dr. Stu // 4/14/2010 12:27:00 AM  

    I got into the chan - couldn't at first, but tried later and it worked.

  26. TEAM FILEnetworks // 4/14/2010 12:56:00 AM  

    When the channel is full, you will now be transferred to Invites Waiting room.

    You will get a message like this:
    "#gft-invites has become full, so you are automatically being transferred to the linked channel #GFTInviteWaitingRoom"

    "Topic is 'Channel for those waiting to get into GFT Invites || UNASKED PM's means you NEVER get an invite"

  27. Steve // 4/14/2010 02:02:00 AM  

    The wait right now is a bit long but its a tracker worth waiting for so i dont care. also they are getting mad about people Pming them so dont do it

  28. StockZilla // 4/14/2010 02:02:00 AM  

    So how long is the wait on average now?

  29. Julian S. // 4/14/2010 05:15:00 AM  

    The user limit in the chan is now 30. Just keep refreshing the room list until you see 29, it could take up to 3 minutes. Once you are in, expect around a 30-45 min wait until you are called on by the staff. From there, show your tracker proofs and you'll get an invite in under 3 min.

  30. DMZ123 // 4/14/2010 07:06:00 AM  

    this is basically a ratioless ipt with faster pres?

    @ DMZ123

    lol they wish!

    the uploaders on GFT aren't nearly as good as those on IPT.
    on IPT you have great packs uploaded CONSTANTLY.

  33. r0ckmetalcp // 4/15/2010 07:21:00 AM  

    I've got IPT And I love it. Good speeds good d/l and alot of good torrents are freeleech. I got my GFT w00t

  34. Gary // 4/15/2010 09:43:00 PM  

    rofl, GFT is a class above IPT.

    You can not even compared the two...
