You are probably all aware of the recent TorrentLeech Summer2011 special open signup which was targeted at recruiting 100000 new members into the tracker. To prevent the site from cracking under heavy demand, there was a hourly registrations limit in place which limited new signups to a maximum of 800 per hour. However, TL still got hammered by people trying to get in (and refreshing the pages continuously even after the hourly limit exceeded) and soon the open signup had to be prematurely ended. If you are one of the unlucky souls to miss out on this TL open signup, there is some good news – TL will definitely have future open signups and giving out invitation codes will be handled by an automated IRC bot.

Quoted below is part of an E-mail message sent to us by TL owner w00t:

We are building a new irc bot who will handle those invites due to the huge amount of users tried to sign up, and took down the site :P The bot should be ready in couple of days, of you want please inform your users as well because they still try to sign up with the SUMMER2011 code ^__^ Every user will get a unique invite code from the bot, when it will be up ;)

Just to make things clear, the SUMMER2011 invite code is now invalid and will not work – there is no point of trying to sign up using that code anymore. When the IRC invite bot is up and when TL starts issuing invites again, we will post the news on FILEnetworks Blog with detailed instructions on how to join the IRC channel and obtain a unique invite code. Watch this space for updates.

Good news for our readers who are still not members of TorrentLeech (TL) tracker. After opening doors for over 30000 new users at the start of this year, TL administration have gone ahead and opened signups for 100000 more new members. This special open registration is done through a promotional invite code earlier made public via TLs’ Twitter account. Only restriction which currently applies to this open signup is the hourly account creation limit – to prevent the promotion from being abused, only a maximum of 800 new signups are allowed every hour (Maximum of 19200 per day). If you were looking forward to get into this awesome General/0day torrent tracker, now is a good time as any to create an account.

TorrentLeech Logo

As we have mentioned numerous times before, TorrentLeech is considered by many as the king of General/0Day torrent trackers. It pretty much tracks everything a BitTorrent downloader would ever need, ranging from movies, music, TV shows, games to electronic books. This includes a number of internal releases by P2P groups as well as some kick ass packs you wouldn’t find anywhere else. The site has a massive torrent index with over 45000 active torrents and a huge user base of 200000+ registered members. For a full description of TorrentLeech tracker including screenshots and a detailed overview of TL v3 features, we highly recommend you read our recent review located here. Several features and fixes introduced after v3 launch can be read about here.

Coming back to the invite giveaway, signing up for a new TL account is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is to enter SUMMER2011 as the invitation code, fill in the signup form + captcha and hit submit button.
UPDATE: Signups are closed for now. Congrats to those who got in.

Site Name: TorrentLeech (http://www.torrentleech.org)
Signup URL: http://www.torrentleech.org/user/account/signup/
Invite Code: SUMMER2011
Notes:

  • Password must include upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters and be at least 6 characters long.
    Example – P4sSw*RD
  • If nothing happens when you press the submit button, wait a couple of minutes until green checkmarks appear next to your username, email and password. Then try again.
  • It’s recommended that you use the latest version of either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browser.

This invite code would support up to 100000 new registrations. If the hourly signup limit is exceeded, you will get a message similar to “An error occurred - Our maximum sign up capacity per hour has been reached. Please try again in XX minutes. (Error Code: 25000)” If you get this message you will have to wait out the specified number of minutes and try again.

We promised frequent updates and here’s another heads up on a niche TV torrent tracker. TV AussieTT is a private tracker specializing in television content from New Zealand and Australia. We have previously talked about torrent sites with Aussie content such as Diwana.Org (open for signup) and Across The Tasman (Open for signup) and if there are any fans out there on the lookout for Autralian or New Zealand TV shows, here’s yet another option for you. TV AussieTT is not exactly a new site but they suffered from a database error back in February 2011 which resulted in the loss of all users and torrents. Thankfully, the administrators have just started rebuilding TATT (and two of its sister sites) from scratch and it seems to be making good progress.

TV AussieTT

The rebooted version of TV AussieTT currently tracks around 90 torrents and has a registered users base in excess of 700 members. Before you complain about the low torrent count, note that all of the uploads were added during the past week or to be more precise within a 6 day time span. That’s actually pretty good for a niche torrent tracker and hopefully they will keep the momentum going in the weeks to come.

Speaking of the content indexed on AussieTT, it mostly has Australian and New Zealand (mainly Aussie) TV shows aired on free to air and cable TV channels. Shows seem to be capped and uploaded within a very short time after original airing. Indexed content include Drama, Comedy, Documentaries, Game shows, News, Reality TV and more. The screenshot below shows some of the indexed content:

IF you are interested in joining TATT, signups are currently open. Note that you won’t find the usual USA/UK TV shows here.

Good news for comics fans. ComicBT, a leading private torrent tracker specializing in Comic book torrents, is now open for signup. CBT has been having some server issues in the recent past and a planned open signup due to be launched last weekend was postponed until these problems were fixed. Intermittent slowdowns and downtime issues apparently sparked a lot of rumors about the sites untimely death but you’d be glad to know these rumors are all false. A new announcement on CBT reads “The rumours of the sites death were greatly exaggerated. The server has been fixed up and we are now FULL POWER AHEAD!”. We did post about a ComicBT open signup last month but unfortunately, the site closed doors just a couple of hours after the post went live. If you missed out back then, here’s your chance to sign up to one of the best (and possibly the largest) dedicated comics trackers around.

Its been just over a year since CBT started its operations and the site has improved at a great pace during the last couple of months. It’s torrent index has more than tripled since we last covered the site and now lists almost 10000 active torrents (9807 to be precise, as of 23/8/2011) up from 2500 back in October 2010. Registered users count has also increased to 2700, despite CBT being a closed community which is almost always invite only. Earlier, the plan was to open signups for a couple of days and increase the user count up to 5000 – even at it’s present state with 2.7k users, CBT has very good activity and there aren’t a lot of dead torrents on site.

As for the type of content on CBT, it’s pretty much straightforward, as we highlighted in our previous article. You can find both new and old issues of almost all major comic book series on this tracker (this includes individual issues and complete series packs). These usually come in CBR, CBZ or PDF file formats - they are all viewable on the PC and probably even on portable devices such as iPad, provided that you have the required software (for a list of software you can use to view Comic Book Archive files on the PC, look here). In addition to comic books, CBT indexes movies, animation, official soundtracks, audiobooks, e-books and TV series based on comic book characters as well. The screenshot below should give you a better understanding of the content available for download on CBT:

To put it shortly, if you have any interest in comics, comic book characters, superheroes, etc then this is a must have tracker for you. Get in while it’s open.
