Lots of good private torrent trackers have been opening up recently. Although we have covered most of these in separate posts, we thought it best to integrate all of them into one article to avoid the confusion. This post features summarized information about four private torrent trackers that are currently open for signup; GameGui (Games), ScL (General/0Day), STN (General/0Day) and TorrentVault (General/0Day). Note that these sites won’t say open forever – some of them will close down after a few hours and you’ll have to be quick if you are to get in.

Site Name: GameGui (http://gamegui.org)
Stats: 11400+ users and 2800+ active torrents
Signup URL: http://gamegui.org/signup.php
Description: GameGui is a specialized games tracker that has never been featured on FILEnetworks Blog before. This site has Chinese origins but almost all indexed releases are international scene/p2p releases. Site language is also Chinese however all major functions come with English labels. Both PC and Console games can be found here.

ScL (The Clover)
Site Name: ScL
Stats: 9800+ users and 3800+ torrents
Signup URL: Site rules prohibit public display of URL
Description: Everyone should know about this one by now. ScL went down a couple of days back due to a billing issue. When it came back, fans were treated to a nice surprise – 24 hour open signups. ScL is celebrating their second birthday and currently double upload is enabled for all torrents on site. To read more about the downtime and open signups, refer to this article
Note: Some users were having trouble with confirmation E-mail earlier. When we checked just now, E-mail confirmation was not required.

STN (StoreThe.Net)
Site Name: StoreThe.Net (http://storethe.net)
Stats: 5700+ torrents and 2100+ members

Description: STN is a general tracker that’s been making quite a buzz these days. Great pre times, amazing torrent uploads, one of the best request systems – it has almost everything you look for in a 0Day tracker. If you couldn’t get in via the initial open signup or the subsequent IRC invite giveaway, signups are now open again for 96 hours. Full review can be found here.

TorrentVault (TV)
Site Name: TorrentVault (http://www.torrentvault.org)
Stats: 5400+ torrents

    SCL is not working for me either? It says "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at site url."

    Can you help me in filling out Quiz for TV? I am not getting correct answers. :(

    It's better to download 10 torrents at a time than to download only a cpl at a time, say 3 or less.
    If a show has 5 seasons (1 season per torrent), and all 5 season torrents are covered by the same single seeder, it's best to download the torrents one at a time.
    If you are about to download all season torrents from a certain show, and you notice that the third season is the only one being leeched at the moment, then it's best to start one of the other torrents. (Hint: What is bittorrent all about?)
    When I submit new torrents to the site I make sure all filenames are neat and tidy, and that they all comply with the uploading rules.

    Nice! Just got into TV, been trying for some time now.

    FYI, they are tracking over 12,000 active torrents at this point in time and the pre-times are as good as I had heard they were.

    The people on IRC seem cool too. :-)

    SCL is up but their https server is down. Try the address starting with http://

    Yeah and TV is an good site with very good pre-times. Join while you can!
