Although anti piracy organizations would love to see it happen frequently, you don’t often hear stories about tracker staff being murdered. Unfortunately, this is what Scene Inspired (SI) had to go through when one of their staff members (Fatz) was killed early this year. Fatz was a senior staffer of this 4 year old private tracker and his death hit the site pretty hard. While this was a devastating blow, Fatzs fellow staffers made sure it wasn’t the end of SI. Instead, SI has now bounced back with more features including an auto uploader bot, seedbox hosted torrents and automatic scripts for pulling movie and TV show information from online sources, etc. They are also looking for some fresh new blood to fill up the ranks so registrations have also been opened for a brief period of time as well.
To quote the words of mad cotto (one of the site admins), here’s what SI went through in the past couple of months:
SI has been around for over 4 years now and has a long history and it will continue due to our small but great nature. But what we need is a bit of new blood, we have just sat back and chilled in our own little world and don't care about been the bigger or uber, etc. We just want to be friends together in the same cause and helping each other out.
SI had a massive shock as one of a most loved staff members (Fatz) was murdered and hit the site very hard and as such we left things to go a bit rotten. But in his name we back. We have pulled our socks up and we now on top of things with giving the site a great look and feel. Lots of tweaks here and there such as auto info for uploads of movies and tv shows have been added. But main feature is that we now reside on a 1gig server with a auto uploder serving at sppeds some people only dream of (ok ok tad ott lol)
As of 18/6/2011, Scene Inspired currently tracks around 1000 torrents and has around 600 registered members. The statistics are nothing spectacular but keep in mind this is a rebooted site. And with the addition of auto uploader bot, the lack of new daily torrents problem seem to be finally solved; around 100 new torrents now seem to get uploaded every day. In case anyone is wondering, SI is a general/0day torrent tracker which indexes both scene and non scene torrents.
As mentioned earlier, registrations for SI are currently open. If you are looking for a community centric general/0day torrent tracker, this site is a good candidate.
