Some great private torrent trackers are opening their doors to the masses these days. (aka PiN aka 'The Donkey'), a ratio free private torrent tracker that deals exclusively with torrent 'packs', is the latest site to open public registrations. This site has been invite only since their launch (about 2 and a half months ago) and potential new members had to go through an IRC interview if they were to be invited. While invite channels are still active, users can easily sign up using the special signup link provided at the end of this article.  This should be a great opportunity for our readers to join this innovative new tracker.

Talking about innovation, PiN is probably the first private tracker to specialize in packs. As we highlighted in a previous post, every torrent indexed on this site is a pack (a collection of related content). You won't find individual movies or TV episodes here - but if movie packs, games packs, full TV season packs , etc is your thing, you'd love this site.

For the past two-three months, PiN has amassed no less than 500 packs. In any other tracker, content in these 500+ uploads would amount to more than couple thousand torrent files. And what’s even more important is that most of these packs are exclusive to this tracker – note how many torrents have the ‘PiN’ tag at the end, instead of the usual scene group name.

And before we forget to mention it, PiN is a ratio free tracker. You wouldn’t need seedboxes or uber high speed internet connections to survive on this site. However like most ratio free trackers, hit and run is prohibited. Following is quoted from rules section:

Do not hit and run. You must seed or leech a torrent a total of 7 days within 21 days or to a 1:1 ratio. Regular hit and running will result in the disabling of your account.

It’s not just the torrents that are unique on PiN – everything from the login page, seed bonus system (aka pack points) to the user class scheme is cleverly designed, matching ‘The Donkey’ theme (and i think they pushed TBDEV to its limits in terms of customization). We won’t ruin these surprises for you – get in and see for yourself.

It’s unknown till when the open signups will continue. However it looks like they will be on for a while as the tracker is trying to get some new blood in (which should help boost activity on some torrents btw).

If PiN has closed the open registrations by the time you read this, please look here for invite IRC channel details. You will still be able to get in through IRC interview.

    Kshiteesh Hegde,
    Try now. It opens just fine for me - even the signup page.

    IRC channel might say that because mibbit is banned by some IRC servers. Try with mIRC.
