Looking to be a part of a great General/0Day tracker? You timing could not have been better. TorrentVault (TV), a Gazelle based private torrent tracker with tons of torrents and awesome pre times, has just re-opened its invites IRC channel after being closed for months. During the last couple of months, TV has grown from a lesser known private tracker into a well respected torrent site - it now features a torrent index with 40k+ torrents, great pre times, a unique bonus points system and the newly introduced TorrentVault Marketplace. In case you couldn’t get into this site through our special signup URL (which was posted a while back), you can now apply for an invite since the invites channel is open once again. Entry requirements for invites that are being handed out on IRC are not tough – even beginners to the BitTorrent scene stand a chance to gain entry into this tracker.

TorrentVault

TorrentVault is by no means a young BitTorrent tracker. The site, which started out on TBDEV source several years ago, is one of the veterans in the BT scene. Things have certainly taken an upward turn for TV since their migration to Gazelle codebase back in November 2009. Pre times and the number of daily torrents added to the site improved drastically – good news is that TV has managed to keep the momentum going even after a full year since the switch. As of today, there are over 43000 active torrents on this tracker – roughly 150-200 new torrents get uploaded every day.

TorrentVault is a General/0Day torrent tracker and majority of the indexed files are scene releases. Both non spam and spam releases including foreign + English content get uploaded here. All sorts of content ranging from music, magazines to movies is indexed – there is a particularly high number of TV episodes available as well. Some of the torrent categories and several zero day packs are visible in the screenshot below:

TorrentVault Index

TV has a unique bonus system based on ‘Gold’. Gold is awarded for seeding completed torrents. Every hour you are awarded a specific amount gold for each completed torrent you're seeding. The amount of gold you receive depends on the size of the torrent seeding. Additionally, you earn 2 gold for every forum post you make and 1 gold for every torrent you thank.Points earned in this manner can be exchanged for upload credit and other goodies in the TorrentVault Marketplace.

How to get invited to TorrentVault

As mentioned in the title of this post, TV has re-opened their IRC invites channel. According to site staff, around 2500-3000 invites will be given out in the first round. Entry requirements are not tough but everyone who is invited will be monitored for rule violations. Follow the step by step guide below to log into the TV invites channel. We recommend you use the mIRC client for this operation.

  1. Close your web browser. Install mIRC. mIRC can be downloaded free of charge from this location. Do not run it yet.
  2. TV IRC requires SSL connectivity so you’ll need to install SSL support for mIRC first. This is a one click process – simply download OpenSSL Setup from here and install it.
  3. Open your web browser, paste the following link in address bar and press enter irc://irc.torrentvault.org:+9022.
  4. This should open mIRC and log you into TorrentVault IRC server.
  5. Once logged in, type /ns REGISTER username email in the mIRC console to register your nickname on this server.
    Example (assuming your username is filenet and password is mypassword)-
    /ns REGISTER filenet mypassword
  6. Type /join #tv-invites to join the invites channel. Follow instructions on channel topic and request your invite. Good Luck!

If you encounter any issues with above instructions, feel free to post them in comments section.

Special thanks to Ze0de (TV SysOp) and Chronic Tron for the heads up.

    seems that the server is timing out?

  2. Mr. // 1/13/2011 01:04:00 PM  

    Pre-times are not that good anymore. The site misses a lot of new scene releases (except tv caps).

    It was a great site but after the two autouploaders left it's a slightly under average 0day/general tracker.

    I only use it for the magazines atm.

    stop being a retard and read the forums, TV 3.0 is coming out soon which is going to totally own all torrent sites, career mode!

    this is why content sucks cause they are building an awesome site try to read the forums a bit and cut the site some slack

    Just because tv 3.0 is coming out it doesnt mean it will "own" all torrnent sites. U have no way of predicting that. What Mr said is true. Ever since they lost the Blurr , pretimes have been a lot slower then they previously were, and activity on the site has dropped slightly. It is by no means a weak tracker, but it has seen better days, and right now they are not at their peak. I like the site and i hope it will grow stronger.

  6. Stewart // 1/13/2011 02:02:00 PM  

    Mark : the server is timing out because it is SSL only and your not using SSL...


    Peak? who cares about peak... most people care about content and the community...

    TV's irc chat is one of the best around... Their trivia channel is realy cool... and they are a much more friendly bunch than any other torrent site ive been a member of! :)

  7. Stewart // 1/13/2011 02:11:00 PM  

    If a torrent is missing, there is a request's section which you can put a "bounty" on on a torrent... the bounty is in upload credits (and or gold that equates to the same amount) and some of the request's can sometimes be worth TB of upload at a time for the more rare requests! who ever uploads this torrent claims the bounty!

    Mr, pre times might not be comparable with other scene/0day sites, but the quality of the content isnt comparable to ANY other site! :)

  8. sun // 1/13/2011 02:35:00 PM  

    from TV site stats

    Requests: 4,594 (96.30% filled)

    what site has 96% chance someone will upload exactly what you're looking for?

  9. Stewart // 1/13/2011 03:32:00 PM  

    TV obviously :)

    wow way to over analyze, get out much?

  11. enermyharrier // 1/13/2011 04:48:00 PM  

    Um Yeah I doubt he was making an actual iron glad prediction.. more like his opinion I guess.. kind of obvious - TV on the other hand looks cool, needs some more users but liking the market so far staff is nice - Requests look nice

    @private,
    Sorry if the method didn't work for you. But we did try the method before publishing and judging by the number of people joining the invite channel, it worked for plenty of others as well. Did you get any error messages while trying to do so? Thanks.

  19. Ze0de // 1/13/2011 11:13:00 PM  

    @private

    Our IRC server is perfectly fine. Everybody else is signing up just fine, so it's obviously something your either doing wrong, or not doing.

    Judging by your attitude and the way you speak to people on here, you wouldn't fit in at TV anyway, so you need not try again.

    The instructions given by the FN Team are correct and work as described.

    @Andrew, it looks as though you missed the bit about installing OpenSSL in the instructions. Do that and you will be fine.

  24. carlos // 1/14/2011 06:09:00 AM  

    Stonecaper i hope you lose your account for trying to sell an invite

  25. alpha // 1/14/2011 11:30:00 AM  

    @carlos : nah most prob he wont even have a acc dere. He is just trying 2 scAm people. Side note I agree tv has seen better days and I dnt understand hw a newer version would improve it's pre time. And yes content pre time>>> comunity

  26. khnnoufa // 1/14/2011 02:08:00 PM  

    Please try again with a more obscure password. Passwords should be at least five characters long, should not be something easily guessed (e.g. your real name or your nick), and cannot contain the space or tab characters.
    what is that shit
