Some of you may already be familiar with SceneExpress tracker. SceneExpress, better known as SeX, is the successor to the now defunct SceneLife (ScL). The site blasted its way into the BitTorrent scene with 20000 active torrents back in April this year. At the time of its launch, SeX was the only private tracker to be using the SCTBDEV codebase which was developed by crew behind SceneTorrents (ScT – now offline). With this trackers’ abbreviation being ‘SeX’, some of you may be wondering if this is specialized adult torrent site – well, it’s not. SeX is a General/0Day tracker which has movies, music, games, e-books, TV shows, anime and other scene and non scene content including packs. And now for the good news – starting December 2010, SceneExpress will have public open registrations during the first three days of each month.
In addition to open signups, site staff have also enabled IRC idle bonus. It works the same as on any other tracker – you idle on SeX’s IRC channel and upload credit gets added to your user account. Quoted below (with minor edits) is the official announcement posted on site homepage:
SeX staff has decided to hold open sign-ups the first three days of each month, starting from this December, for a brief duration. We hope to introduce new members into our ranks and bring some renewed energy to the site. Our main reason for opening sign-ups is to ensure a healthy growth, and for that we need more members.
So spread the word - tell your friend's, your family, torrent enthusiasts, and other people you know.
In short: For a brief duration, there will be open sign-ups at the first three days of each month. This means that sign-ups will be open on December 1st, 2nd and 3rd, January 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and February 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and so on, until staff decides to end it.
Yes, we know we said in the past that we would not have an IRC Bonus System. However, we have now reconsidered this option and have decided to go ahead and do it!
Here's how it works:
The system gives each user 30MB every 30 minutes, so you get 60MB per hour total just for idling in our IRC.
Simply, only for hanging around on our IRC you get:
1.41GB upload a day
9.84GB upload a week
42.19GB upload a month
500.63GB upload a year
Much love from,
This should indeed be good news to both existing members and potential new members looking forward to join SceneExpress. While the site has indexed a ton of torrents (47000+ as of 19/11/2010, in both main and Spam categories), only around 28000 of them are currently active. There are 10700+ registered members on SeX at present - a further increase of this number would improve torrent retention as well as site activity. For a detailed overview of SceneExpress including the newly introduced features since public launch, please refer to our previous posts located here and here.
As stated above, the first open signup under the new scheme is scheduled for 1st, 2nd and 3rd December 2010. Below are the likely signup URLS (these are not confirmed and might change):
