More good news on the BitTorrent tracker invites front – our latest ACiD (AL) giveaway is here. That said, this technically is not an invitation giveaway – it’s more like a special open signup. Just like their sister site Merlin, ACiD is having a signup party through which members can instantly register for an account without having to go through interviews, invite applications or any other barriers. For those of you who haven’t heard about this tracker, AL is a veteran BitTorrent site that is almost 5 years old. It’s a community oriented tracker which indexes general/0Day releases by scene and non scene groups as well as uploads by its own internal teams. Use our special signup key posted at the end of this article to gain access to ACiD. This tracker hasn’t had an open signup in the recent past so this is an excellent opportunity for those who waited in line to get in. The key supports up to 2000 new registrations.
Acid isn’t by any means a newcomer to the BitTorrent scene. The site is set to celebrate its fifth birthday in a couple of months time, in January 2011. However, not a lot has been written about this tracker on BT forums or blogs – this is probably due AL’s strict rules regarding unwanted publicity. Despite being a closed community, nearly 20000 members have already made it their torrenting home ( this is without counting the 12k+ users who got banned from AL for various reasons). The site currently tracks around 12000 torrents, making it one of the larger general trackers out there.
No matter how old a BitTorrent tracker is, it wouldn’t be successful without a good community or a content rich torrent index. Thankfully, ACiD has both. It’s staff are some of the friendliest folks around and it has a loyal user base who are great at filling requests and helping each other out. Download speeds are pretty good and pre times are decent. And it’s worth mentioning that AL’s pre times, specially for TV releases, have definitely improved over the last couple of months. You can find pretty much all major movie, music, appz, game, ebook and other releases on this tracker. But that’s not all – in addition to common scene and p2p releases, AL tracks a lot of exclusive torrents and packs. These can usually be identified by the presence of tags ‘TeamAcid’, ‘RequestAcid’, ‘Acid’, ‘ACID INT’, etc in torrent title.
Coming back to open signups, you can use the key below to create a free account on AL. They key supports up to 2000 new registrations and the sign up party would end once this limit is reached.
Site Name: ACiD
Special Signup Key: gefhmj
Feel free to share this key with your friends on other BT forums or blogs. However, please make sure to link to this post so that whoever is signing up will at least know which type of tracker they are getting into. This giveaway will be pointless if 2000 members who didn’t have any use for AL signed up – that would just fill the tracker with inactive members.
Special thanks to cambo for the heads up.
P.S. – Acid’s sister site, Merlin, is also open for signup via a similar promotion. In case you haven’t checked ML out, you can read about it from this location.
