Good news for all those who missed signing up for Blackcats Games (BCG) when it was open to the public 2 days ago. According to site owner stoi, BCG temporarily halted accepting new members to fix a few bugs in their registration process. As we predicted, signups have once again been opened and you should now be able to create a Blackcats account without issues. If site statistics are correct, open signups have so far been a massive success - there have been ~10000 new accounts created in this month (August 2010) alone, increasing the user base to ~43000. BCG’s current max user limit is set to 50000 which leaves space for around 7000 more new users. If you want to be part of one of the best PC and Console games torrent trackers around, there can’t be a better time than now to sign up.
Here’s what stoi wrote on FileSharingTalk (FST) forums, explaining the sudden closure of open registrations 2 days ago:
BCG is open again, its not a test but we are watching it incase anything goes BOOM! like the other day.
We have changed the signup procedure as well, if you cant get in the first time just keep trying, but the reason we closed the other day was a lot of members tracker IDs were getting mixed up with other members Forum ids, because they use 2 different databases, so the change is to stop that, its not to annoy anyone.
According to the SysOp, BCG may even extend their current max user limit beyond 50k to facilitate new users – this however is not confirmed as of yet. Either way there’s still plenty of room left and everyone should be able to get in without issues if they try right now. We strongly recommend reading our recent review of BCG before signing up - it includes a detailed description of the tracker (along with screenshots), the type of content it tracks and why you should join.
