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.
Please make sure to read all the rules before logging into the Invites IRC channel.
- 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:
- Server: irc.thegft.org
- Alternative Server URL: irc.station51.net
- Channel: gft-invites
- Direct Link: irc://irc.thegft.org/gft-invites OR irc://irc.station51.net/gft-invites

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 :)
