Some refreshing news for those who are tired of seeing the same few trackers open for signup everyday. HeavenSource, a General/0day tracker running on Gazelle, will have open registrations throughout this weekend starting today until Sunday the 29th. Although some of you may never have heard of it, HeavenSource is not a brand new tracker. It’s the end result of two popular trackers merging - PolishSource and HeaverTracker (HT) merged together back in last February to create HS. HS retained many of the former sites qualities including HeavenTracker’s popular trait, blazing fast pre times. Just like its predecessors, HS too is a ‘general’ tracker where you can download almost anything, ranging from movies, video games, books to music. This is the first time HS is opening signups since the merger so don’t let this opportunity go waste.
A news post announcing the upcoming open signups was posted on HS homepage several days ago. Although tracker staff hadn't (yet) gotten around to translating the notice to English, one of our readers nmph sent us a translated version which we have quoted below:
We will be opening our doors for the first time since the merger between 27th and 29th August. It will give a great chance for your friends and others who haven't got their accounts here yet, but would very much like to. Please be aware that there will be a daily limit on how many new accounts may be created so there will be no reason to cut yourself if someone fails to register on the first day. Just come the next day and keep trying.
There're also some other less important information, however what might also be interesting to the readers is they added two more styles to the site, which makes it less boring while browsing and having to use the default gazelle's. You'd have to switch in your profile: HeavenSource and HeavenLayout (the second is default now).
Although there hasn’t been a lot of hype around this tracker, HeavenSource is one of those sites that house a large number of new and old torrent releases. In fact, this is probably the largest Gazelle based general tracker next to TorrentVault, in terms of torrent count. As of 27/8/2010 its main index comprised of over 20500 torrents. This included scene, non scene and internal releases. There is a healthy flow of new torrents with around 100 new releases getting uploaded daily – and these do get uploaded quite fast. HeavenTracker’s great pre times seem to have migrated to HeavenSource as well. Additionally, it might be worth mentioning that HS tracked over 500 packs at the time this article was being written – these were mostly TV and movie packs, some of which you probably can find on other sites too.
Note that HS is a private tracker based in Poland – some native Polish content can be found among the torrents but most of the releases cater to an English speaking population (you can stop Polish torrents from showing up in search, if you hate them that much :p). The site itself supports an ‘English’ language option – switching to English can be done from your profile page. However, keep in mind that this will not automatically translate announcements and news items to English (not a big deal).
As mentioned earlier, signups for HT will open on 00.00 (CET) on Friday (27) and continue till Sunday (29th).
