If the number of PreToMe (PTM) invitation requests we have so far received is any indication, this news is obviously going to make a lot of folks happy. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that hundreds of our readers are waiting in line to get into PTM, easily one of the best General/0Day torrent trackers in existence today (Oh, and it’s *almost* ratio free – more on this later). We used to give away monthly registration keys for this tracker a while back but the last of such keys expired in April 2009. Since then, PTM has had only one open signup and has remained a closed community for more than a year. For the folks who still haven’t managed to get in, good news is that you can now request a PTM invite directly from staff via E-mail. This is an excellent opportunity for everyone looking to be part of a great general tracker. PreToMe has a massive torrent index which points to all sorts of content ranging from movies, music, games, books, TV shows, documentaries as well as a lot of HD video content.

PreToMe started off its operations a couple of years ago, as a spinoff of FunFile (FF) tracker. However, today it’s no longer known as a FF clone – PTM has outgrown FunFile in many departments (amount of content tracked, number of active users, etc) and has established itself as an independent entity in the BitTorrent scene. The site currently has over 17000 registered members, an active forum with over 65000 threads and an overall seeder to leecher ratio of 36 : 1.

As for the content, PTM currently indexes 40000+ torrents (~37000 active) of all types and categories. You can find all major scene and P2P releases here, in addition to over 1500 releases unique to this site. A lot of high definition content is available, including True HD uploads as well as XViD HD/BRRip/BDRip encodes by groups such as NPW, FLAWL3SS, SANTi, ViSiON and more. The screenshot below captures some of the torrent packs you can find on PreToMe:

When it comes to ratio requirements, PTM has some interesting rules. Although not officially branded as a ratio free tracker, it almost functions like one. The site’s main ‘currency’ is credits (bonus points which you earn through various activities such as seeding torrents) and global ratio requirements are very lax:

  • You must seed back to at least our requirements of 60h total seedtime OR a 0.75 ratio on each and every torrent
  • Accounts with a global ratio of 0.05 and below may be put under review for seeding improvement or disabled

And if you can’t maintain a global ratio of 0.05 on any tracker, you should be banished from the world of BitTorrent for being a pure leecher :D

    Do you have to include the comas in the subject like this:“PTM Application – FILEnetworks Blog” or just PTM Application – FILEnetworks Blog ?

    It does not matter if you include them or not.

    That address seems to be correct. What is the error you are getting?

  7. masty // 12/05/2010 05:24:00 PM  

    I got an instant automatic email stating:

    Delivery Status Notification (Failure)

    I resent the email & I haven't had the automatic reply from hotmail telling me it has failed. Fingers crossed it gets to them. Cheers.

    Can anyone tell me if this site is worth signing up to if I have TL and no ratio problems? Aren't all general/0 day trackers pretty similar, what makes this one so great, apart from it being ratioless.

  11. Kyle // 12/06/2010 02:09:00 AM  

    The staff are TERRIBLE. You get a warning just for asking to get new client versions whitelisted. Seriously, they rule with an iron fist and are very rude to users. I would stay away. And they also DELETE your account if you don't log in for a certain amount of time, note not disable, but delete, even if you are still seeding. They're awful.

  12. TiVo Dad // 12/06/2010 07:43:00 AM  

    I already have an account there and it is a pretty decent site, however, I cannot access the site at all - as you get a redirect to what looks like a bogus site with no way to log in. Any idea what happened?

  13. Anonymous // 12/06/2010 08:31:00 AM  

    @Kyle...your an idiot.
    read the rules of the site. it says that when betas and upgrades are fully tested they will get whitelisted. no one wants to hear people whine about "when is the new version going to be allowed" they already said when. not going to use your account for a bit? "park" it. easy to do in your profile settings. staff are extremely helpful, yet have a low tolerance for people who don't read the rules, and faq's, then complain about things that have already been addressed. the rules are not hard to follow, nor are they unfair, especially considering what you get in return, for free.
    i love it there, best tracker ever, great contests, content, great staff and users. barely go anywhere else. well worth trying to get in.
    @Tivo Dad an email was sent out explaining the new way to log in. check whatever address you listed when you first signed up

  14. TiVo Dad // 12/06/2010 10:01:00 AM  

    Thanks for taking the time to help, Yush. Didn't see an e-mail and also checked my "spam" folder. By chance is there an IRC address I can use to reach them that you may know of? Thanks!

    Guys use gmail..... i have been there for more than two years.... defnitely one of the best private tracker...

    DO NOT ask for invites on PTM IRC.

    You risk an IP ban that way.

    PTM is NOT open for invites, the article states this is for applications via email only.

  17. alpha // 12/06/2010 03:01:00 PM  

    no this site is no where near TL in term of content speed Pre etc. dont wry abut it.

    @Yosh (AKA IDIOT)
    U can not park a account while seeding torrents at most of sites.

    And for words about staff take a look at articles about its split from FF..

  18. Anonymous // 12/06/2010 04:18:00 PM  

    1) don't log out then. can seed, and disappear for months with no worries.
    2) if you were at FF when the split occurred you should know the place was brutal. nothing wrong with leaving a crappy relationship.
    3) if you don't like pretome, don't go. simple. we're glad not to have you.

    @Tivo Dad, sorry, I'm and idiot when it comes to irc. maybe try re-applying as stated in the article, and mention your situation at the end?
