In a world full of General/0Day torrent trackers, the BitTorrent community usually welcomes a specialty tracker with more enthusiasm. TheTorrents (THT) is one such private tracker that focuses on a specific niche – oldies. By oldies we mean old movies, retro TV shows, classic literature, etc. It’s a brand new site and not many torrenters even know of its existence yet. However, THT does index some pretty rare content and some of you might even consider it a hidden gem. Before we forget to mention, this is a ratioless tracker – there are no global upload : download ratio requirements and every activity on site including user promotions are based on total traffic. In case you are interested in signing up, registrations are currently open.
As we said earlier, THT is a very young tracker. It’s only been up for a week and hasn’t had a lot of public exposure yet. However, the site has so far managed to recruit over 1500 members and its torrent index has already surpassed the 500 mark. It’s not a revolution but a very healthy start nevertheless.
What sets THT apart from the thousands of BitTorrent sites out there is its content. True, this is not the first tracker to specialize in oldies but at least it’s not another General/0Day torrent tracker. Anyway note that THT has Romanian origins (.RO is banned from several popular private trackers but they sure do have a lot of torrent sites of their own). Naturally, it indexes a mix of both Romanian and English content. If you are looking to download English releases only, make sure to deselect the ‘Romanesti’ category during a search. Screenshot below shows part of the torrent index – this might give you a better idea on what sort of content you can fund on THT:
As for the site interface, it’s by default in Romanian language. You can switch the language to English through the profile page (Go to ‘Profil’ from top bar and set value to English from the drop down menu next to text ‘Limba’).
Registrations for THT are currently open. According to site staff, open signups would continue until the site reaches the user limit of 10000 members. There is plenty of room for everyone so if you are interested, feel free to check this tracker out.
