If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you probably have heard about TBDEV. TBDEV is a BitTorrent tracker script that is hugely popular – it’s a fully customizable codebase that’s still in widespread use. Although we have often heard about trackers being built on TBDEV, have you ever heard of a BitTorrent invite/discussion forum and a private torrent site rating system built on this codebase? TopTBDev is one such site – it’s primarily a private tracker ratings and rankings board along with BitTorrent related discussion threads, invite giveaways, requests, tutorials, users bars and even details of torrent packs on various sites. In addition, it has highly detailed tracker descriptions complete with screenshots from all areas of particular a site. TopTBDev is currently open for signup and is accepting new members.


At a glance, TopTBDev looks just like another private tracker – its signup page and the main index will look familiar to anyone who’s used a TBDev based private tracker before. However, instead of the regular ‘Browse’ page, TopTBDev has a ‘Trackers’ button. This takes you to the main index which is a list of trackers sorted by its rating. Clicking on one of these opens a detailed description page, which pretty much contains everything from screenshots to IRC channel details and signup status of a particular tracker. It must be said that included screenshots are highly detailed – you can actually view all parts of a site without joining. Users are allowed to rate and comment about trackers of their choice – comments about a particular site are well organized and easily accessible. Note that TopTBDev appears to index all sites, including trackers that do not prefer publicity.

Then there’s the forum. TopTBDev’s forum has almost all features  you’d usually find on a regular BitTorrent discussion forum. There are invite giveaways, requests, tracker discussions, torrent site userbars, discussions of packs on various trackers, and even a ‘torrent finder’ where you can ask community help to locate a torrent you are looking for. It’s not the most active forum on the planet but it isn’t an isolated ghost town either.

Signups for TopTBDev are currently open. If you are looking to be part of a different kind of BitTorrent forum, check this site out.

    What i meant to say that max people are non english here.. Maybe romanian i am not so sure.. So all the discussions about the trackers and other stuff will be non understandable to people who dont know this language.. unless they use language transalator or something.. I just dont think its worth all the trouble. Hopefully reading about this site on this blog will encourage more people to join who will hopefully be English speaking. BTW this site reminded me of iPlay.. It all *looked* great but i cant understand a thing thats going on with all the comments, forums and discussions :D
