If you like to be part of large private torrent trackers with lots of torrents, you’d like Linkomanija. This tracker is in the same league as Zamunda, ArenaBG, Mojblink, Partis.Si, etc – a foreign tracker with tons of international content and a huge user base. Based in Lithuania, Linkomanija is a General/0Day torrent site which tracks scene and P2P releases including movies (tons of them), games, music, sports, documentaries, TV shows and pretty much every other torrent category you can imagine. Apart from the usual releases you see on every tracker, this site has it’s own collection of exclusive releases including some enormous packs. LM is usually a closed community but right now, public registrations are open. However, as far as we know, signups will not remain open for long - only a very limited number of free slots are remaining so get in while you can.
Linkomanija has been around for ages and it is one of those seasoned BitTorrent sites with experienced staffers. In fact, this was one of the first BitTorrent sites we featured here on FILEnetworks Blog (previous mention was back in January 2008). Back then this site had 75000 users and ~30000 torrents. Now, in 2010, these statistics have almost doubled. Linkomanija currently tracks 60000+ torrents and has an active user base close to 150000 members.
In terms of content, Linkomanija tracks pretty much everything. From scene releases to P2P uploads you can find a good mix of both new and old content on this tracker. Thanks to the huge user base, most of the torrents have enough seeders to keep them alive for an extended time period. One of Linkomanija’s main attractions is the amazing number of torrent packs in its index. The screenshot below captures some of them and there are many more others you can download, including a ton of movie packs both SD and HD.
As we mentioned earlier this tracker is based in Lithuania – some content native to Lithuania are indexed but majority of the releases cater to an English speaking audience. If you want to avoid downloading Lithuanian releases by mistake, make sure your download is not placed in a category which has ‘LT’ in its name. One other thing that may be a concern for English speaking users is the lack of an ‘English’ language option for site interface. This hurdle is easily overcome with automatic translation provided by Google Chrome. A step by step guide on how to convert Linkomanija’s Lithuanian interface to English can be found below:
- Download the latest version of Google Chrome browser from here.
- Visit LM homepage through this link: http://www.linkomanija.net/signup.php
- Once the page is done loading, Google Chrome will automatically display several translation options (the message will be displayed just beneath the address bar – you can’t miss it).
- Choose the auto detected settings (should be Lithuanian to English) and hit translate. If you get the message ‘Translation failed due to server error’ keep re-trying.
- Once translation of the first page is done, you can configure Google Chrome so that it automatically translates all LM pages without prompting you. Select the ‘Options’ button (in the translation help popup) and select ‘Always translate Lithuanian to English’ from the drop down menu.
Signups for Linkomanija are currently open. At time of writing, the site had ~149700 users and something tells me open signups would close when this hits 150000. If this assumption is correct, this leaves only around 300 more free slots remaining - get in while you can.
