There was a time when ratio free private torrent trackers were scarce in the BitTorrent scene. Back then only a handful no ratio sites such as FTN existed – even these were closed to the public and getting into one of them was not easy. However today, the situation is a lot different. Not only there are more ratio free trackers up and about, but getting into some of them is pretty easy even for complete newbsies to torrenting. This post features two private torrent trackers that are currently accepting new members; Thorbits and The Dark Syndicate (TDS). Thorbits is directly open for public signup but TDS is technically closed. However, interested members could easily create an account using FILEnetworks special invite key. Both these sites are General/0Day torrent trackers through which you can download movies, music, TV shows, games and all other sorts of scene and non scene content.

The Dark Syndicate
The Dark Syndicate
The Dark Syndicate (TDS) is a family friendly ratio free private torrent tracker. When it launched around 18 months ago , this site quickly grabbed the attention of veteran BitTorrent users. This was largely due to the fact that TDS had a strong connection with Araditracker, a BitTorrent legend (now defunct). Although by no means a reincarnation of Aradi, TDS had many ex Araditracker staff members among its crew. It started out as a General tracker with a focus on community and TDS has by now expanded into a fully fledged private torrent site with the addition of new features including an autouploader bot, a fully functional ratio free implementation and several other community features such as IRC channels and radio. It indexes both scene and non scene releases as well as internal packs (no adult content). An amazing request fill percentage of 94% tells a lot about the the helpful community on TDS. The site is closed for direct signups but you can create an account with our special signup key which TDS staff were kind enough to provide.

Thorbits
Thorbits
Although there hasn’t been a lot of hype around this tracker, Thorbits has been online for quite a while. It actually has pretty good pre times for scene releases. The site is ratio free and is based on a credits system. Here’s how it all works (quoted directly from Thorbits homepage): “Credit and Seeding times: We are a ratio free site. Seed all for 36 hours. Even if no leechers, and even if FreeLeech. You will receive credits for your time as follows: If you seed for 36 hours you will get 1/3 back!! After 48 hrs the seed multiplier rises.... meaning if you seed the torrent 7 days then upload 100mb you get 150mb credit!! If you seed 12 days upload 100mb you get 200mb credits!! You will see the "seed mulitiplier" in your snatchlist on your user page. Max is 12 days = double up on credit when seeding :)”

    "Need more ratio free general trackers that are open? Check out DeamonBytes which is still accepting new registrations."

    It's not ratio free, the only freeleech torrents are packs but that doesn't make it a ratioless tracker.

    So where does this site stand after 18 months? Were still here and have very loyal but small community working hard to create a nice bullshit free environment for our members, ratio free easy seeding rules, no mass pms for donation begging, nice speeds, respectable pre times, no power hungry staff, requests taken as a very high priority, very secure IRC very very active for our size and still hosts one of the finest torrent radio stations to date with a very committed selection of long term (most have been working together for over 4 years) djs bringing you varied selection of styles from drum-N-bass, blues, metal, pop, classic rock, and very bust your gut funny talk radio.

    As we all know there are many, many 0day general trackers out there, and were all aware of the amount of money and effort thats required to compete with the big boys out there, so we DONT!! We just do our own thing, relaxed stress free environment sharing files and information with friends. So if you your intrested please signup, if your wanting some uber site thats all about epeen, were just not for you, so dont waste your time or ours by creating an account that somebody else would enjoy.

    Features and improvements, Updated the css and icons to make it look a bit more modern, improved tracker backend code, tvRage page, easy way to find all tv shows and info in one easy to use location, predictive search to find the torrents you want quickly and easily, integrated imdb info for movies, very easy uploader page to streamline uploading process, advanced auto request bot for donators as a special thanks to them for there contribution to our continued existence, varied community driven IRC channels, #games #info, #pre, #tracers, #idlerpg being open to all users.

    So staff hope to see you all there,
    Best regards
    TheDarkSyndicate

    Yes we are Ratio Free, I made the homepage news :) We require that you seed for 36 hours before the seed multiplier kicks in. We use the credit system.. just like our homepage says. As far as the FreeLeech goes... every day as soon as 250 torrents are uploaded, we have FreeLeech for the rest of the day until midnight. A banner appears on the browse page.
    By the way, we just closed signups, and will have an invite system up and running shortly!
