Funfile is down

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 3/11/2009 | , | 35 Comments »

Private torrent tracker FunFile is currently offline. The site went down suddenly without many announcements and lots of members were left wondering what exactly happened to the tracker. The exact reason for downtime is unconfirmed as of yet. As of this moment (11/3/09) site and the BitTorrent tracker are both offline.
UPDATE: The site homepage is now back up and according to the notice posted there the entire site should be fully operational shortly. Reason for downtime seems to be a RAID failure and NOT a lack of donations.


We will be back up and running ASAP.

2009-Mar-11 00:33 (GMT+0100) [Update 4] The server is reporting that some of the units in the RAID array are reporting as missing. Because of this the server sees no logical devices to boot from. I am trying to ascertain why the server is doing this and what I can do to get this corrected.

If you want to read more about FunFile tracker, read our recent article on the site from this link.

    Get your facts straight before posting this shite. You are repeating unfounded rumours based on an unauthenticated comment posted on FSF.

    I am a loyal member of both PTM and FF.

    I can assure you that "donations" had absolutely nothing to do with the current issues.

    The FF IRC is up and has been running continuously since the site went offline.

    Interested parties who wish to know the true story about the unforeseen RAID failure, may join us at:

    IRC: 6667 (or +6697 for ssl)

    Your rumour-mongering is despicable.

    Your mother should spank you. No. Wait. I'll do that.

    DOMERS are taking over the WORLD!

    - Much love,

    First of all what was posted here was based on what several members said earlier on FF IRC channel. Anyway we agree that was unconfirmed information - we're not assholes so we've edited out the 'donations' part. One way or the other FunFile IS down (at least for now) and that's what it says on the article.

    Its a shame it took a post from me and many hours for you to make this small but important editorial correction.


    - Much love,


  5. Lilibet // 3/12/2009 02:18:00 AM  

    This just in... from:


    "Hey pissheads, what's posted here is telling members of FunFile to go and join PreToMe... "

    Could you show more bias? Fudgewashers. Just cuz you couldn't hack it in ThunderDome.

    You make me laugh so hard... shite. I pissed myself.

    Oh, and this just in as well:

    "ratfucker says hi"

    - Much Love,

    Hey TeamFileNetworks...

    FSF just had to retract its article, the one you used for inspiration, and post a retraction and APOLOGY.

    How about you, now, dumbfucks?

    - Much love,

    Keep in mind as well FileNetworksBlog, the only real members hanging out in their IRC channel yesterday were ex FunFile members who previously trashed the site when they were banned for dobbing in uploaders to another tracker for sharing files. They would do anything to trash FunFile.

    FunFile is down because of a raid failure. Nothing more.

    The reason it is still down? Because L0ckdown had to pay HZ101's rent? We will never know. It seems that any time that an ounce of truth comes out about FunFile, staff jump on board and other loyal wannabe staff members and trash someone for speaking truth.

    Here is some truth. L0ckd0wn uses donations to pay for certain staff priveliges. He pays for HZ101's rent, confirmed to be 2000$ a month (staff member), and there are benefits for other staff members as well. Truth is, that if these benefits were not paid out of donations, something as basic as a RAID failure would be fixed now.

    I eagerly await to be trashed for speaking truth.

    All I can say is WOW to Lilibet.

    That is one of the many things I hate about FF. The "fun" community of people who all act like they are 12.

    Then there's the rest who say "FF is the best tracker in the world" but they haven't ever seen another private tracker!


  9. Unknown // 3/12/2009 06:56:00 AM  

    do you know that several tracker were down (base on my experience)last monday.

    TD (only few minutes)

    i dont why they were down on the same day.

  10. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 3/12/2009 07:28:00 AM  

    The article has been edited and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
    Anyway I sincerely hope you are not staff at FunFile. You've attacked us as if we had something personal with Funfile when we posted the article. Dont forget that several our previous articles got you thousands of members.

  11. tejaslok // 3/12/2009 08:17:00 AM  

    ya LS Tower ur absolutely right , that Lilibet is a shit-head, who doesnt even know wat he is talking here ? !!

  12. Tavius // 3/12/2009 08:34:00 AM  

    go here for the updates on funfile

    this is a page that our host gave us while they help us fix our error. I laugh at the fact that you are spreading a rumour so funny and retarded that you think anyone will believe it as to say hz101 is having his rent paid by l0ckd0wn, i will not trash you because i am a staff member there and wish to keep the status of our site professional all tho ex-staff have not been in the past. Our site is trying to start fresh with the new changes and i expect that you being who you are will trash that comment and act like you are 12, as for lilibet, she is not a staff member but a member of the thunderdome, a group of members within funfile.

    I am sorry for the rudeness of lilibet as i have seen you change your site's posting accordingly.

    Its been fun seeing the rumors spread, i think that old members need to move on and stop bashing sites that they couldn't hack it in, we enforce our hit and run rule and keeping a good ratio, members who have been banned were not able to maintain a good ratio and refused to share what they took. or they broke other rules that we have posted in our faqs, cheated or some other thing that most private trackers don't allow

    I will admit that as a private tracker we have come along way, been great and bad, which i'm sure is the same for most. we are not the best tracker in the world but we are trying to become the best.


  13. Charlie // 3/12/2009 09:11:00 AM  

    An IRC log is being circulated Tavius which shows HZ101 admitting to a member who was banned shortly after he discovered this.

    The total amount that was being paid per month is 2000$ and it was paid towards rent for HZ101. HZ101 also strongly requested that this is kept a secret.

    Truth speaks louder than words Tavius. Members of FunFile need to know this truth about what their donations are being spent on, and it is only natural that staff of Funfile will wish to protect this from leaking out further than it already has as it will damage the reputation of this tracker even more than it is already.

  14. anthem // 3/12/2009 10:10:00 AM  

    Fuck FunFile. Fuck Lilibet. There's no need to apologize to that asshole.

    For the thousands of dollars per month in donations they collect for "server bills", you would think they would have better server redundancy. WTF, a RAID failure brings the whole site/tracker down? What a joke.

    Maybe they should spend some money getting some high quality failover servers instead of smoking up donations on high quality chronic.

    "I laugh at the fact that you are spreading a rumour so funny and retarded that you think anyone will believe it as to say hz101 is having his rent paid by l0ckd0wn,"

    Such a story was never posted here on FILEnetworks Blog. Even in the original post what we said was the tracker was down due to lack of donations (which was unconfirmed information and has now been removed).

  17. Charlie // 3/12/2009 11:50:00 AM  

    To Tavius's defense, it wasnt posted here in the article, agreed. He is speaking in response to the allergations, and the log that is circulating showing that L0ckd0wn does pay for HZ101's rent with donation money. He is not attacking FILEnetworks blog.

  18. Unknown // 3/12/2009 07:08:00 PM  

    Lilibet gets on my tits, she cant keep her gob shut for 5 mins i had to put up with her crap on FF and pretome, just stfu will ya

  19. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 3/12/2009 08:10:00 PM  

    "He is not attacking FILEnetworks blog."

    That's good to hear coz we have nothing against FunFile or any other tracker for that matter. Never have we cheered when a tracked went down.

  20. Unknown // 3/12/2009 09:45:00 PM  

    Well hell if this is true i might wanna consider asking if he will pay my mortgage also

  21. Craig Burns // 3/12/2009 09:47:00 PM  

    next you will be saying the servers come free of charge lol all sites need donations to survive

  22. Unknown // 3/12/2009 11:17:00 PM  

    domers for life lilibet :D

    i trust tavius here,and honestly i can understand lilibet's reaction to a story like that one of lock that pays for someones rent (fuck him IMO).

    i just want to get back to the forums,and keep on downloading and seeding.

    tanner.....i'm a member at pretome,the torrent source (the first site from ff),funfile and some others,i recomend you not to draw conclusions about something apparently even you (a smart person according to what you say xD) don't know.

  23. e-p3nOr // 3/13/2009 02:35:00 AM  

    heh... don't u luv when a 4 line irc log is posted online and spreads like wild fire lol rofl ... gotta luv the interwebz seein the fruits of your labor flourish lol

    Be it the many dingleberries who have been banned whos eyes and keyboard grace said log as well as the dimwits who post anything and put themselves in the same catagory as the dingleberries... wut a buncha wankers lmfao sounds like a new cereal to hit the market, all the dimwits will run out and buy.. new dingleberry crunch

    having to retract statements makes u look like a fool! when u believe whats said on irc...when shit is flyin left right and center u are fool!

    "Keep in mind as well FileNetworksBlog, the only real members hanging out in their IRC channel yesterday were ex FunFile members who previously trashed the site when they were banned for dobbing in uploaders to another tracker for sharing files. They would do anything to trash FunFile. "

    there were real funfile members and followers in irc when the backup server was put up...most were staff at that time, but yes the majority of regular users in the channel at the start were banned users who for some reason even tho they trash the site, they come back ? why is that? why so interested in a site u bash?

    or is it a... "look at me i was banned by im in ur irc...? lmfao

    fools! :P

    I am also a member of pretome. I joined when they split, but wasn't active. Now I am a relatively active member.

    I am unsure what you your comment is supposed to mean.
    Are you insulting me because I said Lilibet acts like she's 12 or because I said FF is NOT the best tracker in the world. Or, are you insulting me because I implied that I hoped FF would stay dead? I didn't say they were, but I said PLEASE RIP.

  25. Anonymous // 3/13/2009 05:44:00 AM  

    trackers go down and they go back up again... or they don't...
    however, funfile is not worth making al the fuss

  26. Psyco-1 // 3/13/2009 07:01:00 AM  

    No its not and niether is pretome. Bunch of ban happy babies. Mod starts with an "m" not a "g" like they think. Id rather download virus all day than go there. As you can see from all these comments you can see what I mean.

  27. Psyco-1 // 3/13/2009 07:11:00 AM  

    Your right about Lilibet, she does act like shes 12. Just listen to her. Un believable isnt she. Lilibet maybe you should find something better with your life. Maybe some kids a job. I can see with all this BS you have some issues going on.......

  28. Psyco-1 // 3/13/2009 07:16:00 AM  

    This is from turning my pc off for a few hours a day. "Heaven forbid".

    You now have more than 6 hit and runs within the past 2041 weeks. Your account will maintain a warning and face some restrictions until your hit and run count drops below six. If you get a total of 8 hit and runs your ability to download new files will be disabled. You can view your current hit and runs at your torrent history.

    Freakin ridicoulos. This is why funfile and pretome completely suck. And Im going to donate to a site like this. Im surprised they have lasted this long.

  29. Charlie // 3/13/2009 07:43:00 AM  

    It is so sad to see this turn into a hate FunFile fest.

    End of all of this, FunFile is just a tracker. They give you access to free material, they might have rules that some might not like to follow.

    If you don't like the rules, then there are plenty of other torrent trackers around that offer similar if not better content and communities.

    I disagree with the paying of moneys to staff members to pay for rent followed by the threat of closure because donation targets have not been met, but that is my train of thinking.

    The power of denial is a powerful thing though, as is the power of damage control though.

    I sincerely hope that with FunFile being run by pb1fd with the owner, l0ckd0wn sitting in the background, means a better future for the tracker, as they are not only great for content, but as a community. Either way, let the scene as a whole be the judge, everyone knows that FunFile does stand as one of the most dodgy trackers out there.

  30. Unknown // 3/13/2009 05:57:00 PM  

    Fuck funfile, they're nothing but a bunch of moneygrabbing scamartists.

    "Oh, our server bill of several thousand dollars is due and we can't pay it."

    Who the fuck are you kidding? You're actually trying to convince people that you pay several thou in hosting costs per month? Man people must be stupid. You could run the entire funfile website/tracker on a cheap ass VPS for a $100/month (much less if you actually looked around for good deals on hosting).

    I don't doubt for a second that all those donations are being utilized towards "staff" rent, bills, nights out etc.

  31. Charlie // 3/13/2009 07:54:00 PM  

    The FunFile issue is dominating everywhere, end of the day FunFile will get what is coming to them.

    At the moment, FunFile are not doing the right thing with their funds, and they are banning any member who has the guts to speak out against their usage of their funds in order to protect their own income.

    We have heard it already, and several times at that.

    We can sit and hate them over, and over, and over again, it is not going to change the fact that they are dying a very slow death. Staff admit it, the users admit it. It will happen. When? We will never know.

    End of story.
