If you’re an invite trader, you may find yourself on the business end of the banhammer on popular torrent forums and private trackers alike. Well known for being an invite trading forum - which doesn’t bode well with private trackers - Swedish-based torrentinvites.se staff and members now have a lot more to worry about with the recent alliance between certain torrent discussion boards and popular trackers - in a bold crackdown bid to oust traders from the scene.
Word on the bit-street is, a group of staunch “anti traders” have begun to ban members of torrentinvites.se on certain high-profile trackers, as well as on various torrent forums. We can’t tell you how the IPs were leaked, but TorrentInvites.se staff have already been banned from select forums, in addition to a well-known high level scene tracker, which is also expediting the process of having TI.se staff & traders globally banned from other trackers. Still think that trackers aren’t connected to each other? Think again - many are.
Here’s a warning message left on TI.se, in regards to trading:
Even Swedish trackers are getting in on the action; including SweDVDR, Softmupparna and PirateTorrents.se, which have begun to ban just about anyone connected with TI.se. There’s even talk of another high-profile Swedish tracker getting into the fray (who wishes to remain unidentified), by cutting out all traders.
Private trackers are used as currency
One negative connotation associated with trading can easily be summed up by the general consensus that it is, indeed, a form of currency. And since trackers are usually non-profit for the purpose of free information, invitations to them are not to be sold (aka. traded) in any way, shape or form.
Having said that, many trackers turn a blind eye to their invites being so freely swapped and handed out, as it’s a form of publicity that generates new members - new members who may eventually donate to the tracker, or become upstanding denizens. Other trackers, such as What.cd, x264.me & StC have aggressively tried to keep their invites out of such torrent forums - regardless of trade or giveaway.
Invite/account trading is wrong - period. We’ll update this post as it breaks.
No traders there
BILLYCHU thats bullshit , i got a BCG invite in a giveaway there and got banned coz my inviter was a secret trader.
back on topic , awesome article and good news to all the respectful and decent BT users who choose to use private trackers
If a bad member gets into TPS, we do our best to get them out fast! We participate in the global ban system also. So if you was to inform the TPS staff with proof of loosing your account from a trader, let us know. We will contact the tracker to confirm everything and take actions! We also would have contacted the tracker on your behalf and try to help get your account back! We are tracker users also, and we don’t like any good people to loose there trackers!
I know you left TPS because you got another place but TPS is my home so I have to disagree with you. You were kind of active at TPS and that’s why some ppl voted for you when you made a request to another forum at FST. I’m sure that helped you to join that forum and now you turned back and said such a bad thing to TPS. You might not lucky because your inviter was a trader but he was in TPS just because he’d hidden his profile. I’m sure TPS staff will ban any traders when they know about those traders.
+1 on what #1 said.
LOL This artice is brilliant.
At TPS, we never, EVER endorse any kind of trading, everything that we do is under the constant eye of the trackers involved, with their blessings, and also, with the members at TPS respecting their trackers as well. We also respect trackers that do not want sharing of invites in public, like what’cd and the such.
Forums that offer trades are, in essence, just giving out someones house keys because someone else can offer them something that they want. Hopefully, this will scare people enough to stop trading, as they are dead serious with this no trading stuff. You trade, you will be banned, not just at the tracker that you are with, but at all others that you have anything to do with. Think about how many invite trees you have think about how many friends you have… gonna lose em all… And youre gonna deserve every single thing.
Congrats to this so called Anti Trade Group! Massive win for you guys!
105802, there’s no need to say something like that. OF COURSE there are some traders in TPS. Nothing is perfect. They do a great job keeping that number down to a minimum though
There are going to be traders everywhere no matter where you look. Just so happens that TPS manages to get on top of them all pretty quick, and has a good member base that aint afraid to name and shame them at any trackers that they know they are at.
+1 for REDTHEHAT
Completely agree with you mate.
Well, I have to say this is a good move IMHO
well traders are lamers and arseholes .. they must be caught and killed whereever they are .. rofl
btw .. i m h o tR FTW !!!
This is laughable.
Does people who are against Trade need a wake up.
Do u think u can find a person On earth who will give u And FTN invite for free??
I suspect dat. And many people are fool while trading. dey leave multiple proofs behind.
Be good hidding ur specs in screenshot And u r good 2 go. Use a double Or Tri proxy and chances of getting caught are NIL becoz no proxy tracer and Force router can go above double Ip.
omg no wai this is awesome.
TPS FTW <3
Billy Boy Says:
The Pirate Society is full of traders. Check.
Yes, I do think that I could find someone on this Earth that would give me an FTN invite “for free”. It may take time for people to get invited without trading, but it WILL happen. You trade because you’re impatient, and want things to happen instantly.
TRACKEREACOR BAN PEOPLE WITHOUT ANY REASON!!!!!! Says:
TRACKEREACOR STAFF ARE CORRUPT THEY BANNED PEOPLE WITHOUT ANY REASON!!
THERE SITE ARE SCAM,, THEY FORCE TEHIR EMEMBR TO DONAT!! BEWARE@!!1
There are always risk to get banned for stuff like that. Torrentinvites.se was put up for all those people that always try to get hold of a page but fails todo so. They don’t know anyone that can give them invites, or there is no invitation system and they would still like to have a special site.
I must ask all of you, where is the harm if I for example get your FTN account? Does the world end? If you are stupid enough to trade so some dumbass that will fuck up your ratio, I can understand the idiocracy of that person. However most of our members either give away an invite (There is a reason why you have invites, and it’s your own personal responsability to give it to someone you trust, Correct?) to someone that can provide proof that they are good members.
Since they don’t know anyother members, why not share? Also i like the hypocraticy in all of this. You are a tracker doing illegal stuff, yet you get mad at people trading an account and you get pissed and AzzA here spammed the forum, tried SQL injection and threatned our staff.
You make it sound like you posses the worlds biggst diamon or something. We are not here to fuck up for other people. We are here, a few members (Currently 1500, how many active do is another question) that use the forum for invites or maybe they don’t want their account anymore, but someone else do. So why not let them use it. It’s not like it’s an account with access to the white house. We are all the same people that is trying to get into sites that are impossible otherwise todo.
for me neonscene is the best , i love it very much
i got many invites there but i didnt find trading :
and my sincere thanks to the mods there , thye helped me a lot
hahaha nice one just dont look at me i didt do it lmao
ohhh yea their staff is soo nice they give ips to me and banned them
@billy boy, do you have any evidence to support your outrageous statement? most likely not. True, there are some traders that got through the filter, we’re not perfect. but everyone in TPS has been working hard to keep them away. TPS is my internet home, and I feel safe there so please don’t bash it.
it’s people like you that make me sad :(.
anyways back to the article: I think it’s great that people are starting to out these traders! They are harmful and effect everyone around them (especially their invite tree). We should all respect the private trackers’ wishes and abide by their rules.
Secondly instead of spamming our forum, why don’t the affected trackers get in contact with me? Maybe we can come up to a solution together, instead of running like wild chickens and this witch hunt for users.
Of 1500 members, maybe 10 people have been banned. There are always risk with trading accounts. But I will say this again, this is such a hypocracy.
Trackers are so illegal they can be. And spare me the bullshit about “We don’t host files we only provide links” cause that’s utterly crap talking and you know it as well as I do.
So, illegal as hell and you go mad because people give away/trade their accounts. In your right mind, how does that make sence?
I will also say this again, we are not here to ruin for other trackers or expose them. If you are such a secret tracker, then the person trading your account, isn’t it him you should be mad about?
It’s likei if my boyfriend is unfaithful to me, and I go and slap the girl. It’s not the girl that has an obligation to me, it’s my man right?
As said, if you like to get in contact with me, please do not hestitate todo.
firstname.lastname@example.org is my email and you are welcome to mail. For your information tho about AzzA. He spammed the forum, he threatned all the staff and he keeps using proxy. I must say that must be some kind of lowlife addicted person that just started to grow some pubic hair.
He made 12 different accoutns (Both at Torrentinvite.se and 12 different email accounts, and used 12 different ips) since I banned him all the time. Yet he kept coming and trying to scare us off. I must say, I get rather irrated more than anything to this. He came in the name of SnL, and I contacted them and they claimed to have nothing todo with him.
So either he is lying, or SnL is lying. Which I don’t know.
// Queen, admin @ torrentinvites.se
I got my FTN invite for free, cause I had a good friend who invited me. If you have to trade, it’s because you have no friends and no patience whatsoever.
If i’ve said this once i’ve said it a thousand times - all the best scene tracker staff are members of a board and irc channel where we [shock] actually talk to each other and share bad members details!!!! [/shock]
Get banned for one site for trading / cheating / whatever - get banned from em all.
hell yes a email to fill with spam I love it…. thanks!!
the best place for invite giveaways is private tracker power user forums. anything else will be full of shit
who is pedrowsky??? and what does hes suck….. O.o ..
i wasnt trying to bring TPS down with what i said , i know TPS is a great place and i still check in to see how everything is almost daily i just dont post because i dont feel the need. dont think i hate TPS because i dont , i wouldnt be were i was without TPS.
sorry to any TPS members who thought i was talking about the site as a whole
btw, AzzA, lmao.
C’mon, the owner and 2 admins of TPS were former traders. Actually, they met in a trader community forum. I’m not saying they are bad persons, they really became friends and changed their minds about trading because we all know that’s not the best way to build a reputation in private tracker communities and trading is like a curse nowadays.
However, we can’t condemn people for actions in their far past. It bothers me when I see members of TPS saying “traders suck!” or “traders should die!” when they are really completely n00bs and don’t know anything about their own staff. Even staff don’t know each other very well lol
Anyway, I repeat N3v3r and the other guys are good people, but could they say traders should die and be globally banned?
Furthermore, there are some trackers which really don’t care about trading invites, like TTI, KG, Demonoid, Bit-HDTV, etc. There are sites which are against trading but even owners of these trackers are not anti-traders, they understand each case is different:
There are some cases where a trader is just someone who doesn’t have any friend with invites. I have seen people who were forgiven by staff in some old trackers because they provided enough info to proof that they are not compulsive traders, invite sellers, or something like that.
You can’t tar them all with the same brush!
I have noticed that all these new trackers are not only anti-trading but also anti-traders and condemn people for good, even if they only traded once in their lives. I think they behave like that because they haven’t been enough time on the private tracker scene to understand the differences.
Trading wasn’t frowned upon by trackers at all in 2005 for instance.
TPS does not condemn n00bs who have traded in the past…on the contrary instead we educate them on what is to be expected out of them in the private tracker world. We are not talking about people breaking into the private trackers we are talking about people who know the difference and consequences of their conduct. Starting out members likely get a demonoid invite and want something else….this once punched into google is where people can be bombarded with trading activity.
To say that members don’t know the staff at TPS is completely laughable and unfounded. We have never hidden the fact that when a few of us first started years ago that we were part of that forum you mentioned…and honestly we met a lot of great friends and I personally wouldn’t change a thing because like you said at that time it was not frowned upon. But times have changed hon and people do have a choice once they find out that trading is not in their best interest nor the trackers best interest.
A quote on our forum on this very rss feed that sums it up. Like I said there is a difference when you know better. There is no excuse if you have been in involved with private trackers for more than a month these days.
“This is great..honestly I am a member of that site..i think it was the first one i ever signed up for..i was a n00b and figured all that shit was fine and dandy..but after i joined a real forum (TPS) i soon figured out that trading in the p2p world is seriously frowned upon..for good reason at that…thats why i love TPS so much..ive only been here 7 months now but i can already see how this place is the leader of innovation of how a real invite forum should conduct their business..great job to all the staff for making this such a nice place..
N3v3R,Muddslinger,Beagle,Kbaby,Danmaxito,Bmick,Sno opy,T3,BoTTom,Matt…and all that i may have forgotten..my hat goes off to each and everyone of u”
“For your information tho about AzzA. He spammed the forum, he threatned all the staff and he keeps using proxy. I must say that must be some kind of lowlife addicted person that just started to grow some pubic hair.”
ok i have 4 pubic hairs now so shutup. and for all TPS members and trackers that know me as AzzA the person Queen is talking about is not me!! i would never be apart of a community such as Queen’s. i am against trading and TPS is the only place for me. i have PMs from people asking me if the AzzA they are talking about is me or not which it isnt!! its a different douchebag!
N3v3R, I was referring to people who call themselves anti-traders and curse all people who have ever traded.
Anti-traders are usually lucky kids who met a lot of other kids with invites in short time or even started a tracker with them. All trackers that have been created from 2007 so far were made by anti-traders or at least brought some anti-traders to their staff. Most of them started torrenting the same year they created the tracker and that’s why they don’t know anything about the possible motives that lead someone to trade, they simply demonize all traders because they don’t understand them.
Times could have changed, but still there are lots of people who don’t have friends with invites. I totally agree with this, quote from a FST member: “people trade because they r impatient , they are curious and its just doesnt make sense to make online friends just for the sake of getting invites….i always belived friends are not made,friends happen…”
But I also know that there are some traders who are a threat to private trackers, they live around perpetual trading and trade or sell accounts putting in risk trackers communities. But again we can’t tar all traders with the same brush!
I understand where you are going with this and although I don’t agree with your points I fully respect your opinions and maturity. You are correct in one point…that is that not all traders can be lumped together…If a trader ONLY trades with trackers that allow trading of course there is no issue.
The problem arises when a member trades against the wishes and rules of a tracker. You need to remember these people take a great deal of time in setting up and running a tracker. They put up their own money, and they have the right to create their own set their own rules. This is where there is no room for argument. Does a tracker like Swedvdr that only wants Swedish members and bans members that aren’t found to be labeled as anti-?…or trackers that bans Israel ips anti-semitic of course not…its their own set of rules and they can do whatever they feel will best benefit their members and tracker. The bigger picture has to be looked at here and that’s the wish of the tracker. Whether you feel its right or wrong is a moot point because its their sweat and money that make it come to life and even attainable at all.
No one is perfect in this world I know everyone who say they are anti-traders know to their soul that they are traders.
even sct and ftn mods also trade.sct is against invite selling then what they are doing arent they selling invites to the persons who had given them the money.
I am one of the mods of famous and higher level site.
This world is corrupted so why care about trading
I had reported one of the hardocore torrent sellers to sct mods but they had not banned him because he had donated 300euros to the site.
He uses 5 sct accounts with 5 different ips.

Why is invite trading/giveaways so bad?
After spending years on this debate trying to help users understand why its bad i found the best way is to let TF do the talking,
Think you’ve tried hard to get onto that private tracker? Imagine the guy that got onto it, AND got paid to do so, sitting in a nice air conditioned office. I’m certain there are people who’s only task is to gain memberships to private trackers. To collect evidence, build up contacts, and invites. How do I know this? Well, it’s what I would do, if I were running such a company, and it’s fairly obvious, especially given the evidence of the EliteTorrents bust back in 2005. Sites know this as well, which is why most private trackers heavily discourage trading invites, and why the rule is that you only invite those you “know”.
stop the fucking bullshit… traders/sellers/giveawayers are the reason private sites get found and shutdown. admit your guilt and move on
They all steal from the scene, the scene try to stop them and fail. Now torrent sites are trying to stop this? This is a joke if they think it will work. If you’re gonna steal from the best don’t be hypocrites.
End of the day, no matter how much whinging is done in here, you need to remember this. TPS has an amazing understanding with many trackers including higher level trackers who trust TPS and its members with their invites. Everything that TPS and its members do is in order to retain the respect of these trackers.
People who accuse TPS of being traders, or doing anything that is not right in that sense, these allergations are completely unjust, and have no backing whatsoever. Gertain invites impossible to get without trading? Try making some friends and see how far that will get you.
Anything that happened at torrentinvites.se with regards to them allowing trading, its completely their own punishment that they need to accept and take ownership of. Simple. Doesnt matter if people want to make multiple accounts or whatnot, I kinda think that if AzzA did make many accounts and spam you guys there, you guy’s need to deal with it. Trying to blackname a member on here wont get you very far when your name is completely ruined.
No honesty amongst theives? Yeah, in some cases this is correct. However, if these traders are going to threaten the security of our trackers, I have nothing but pity for them. You all get what you deserve.
Why is everybody talking about TPS?
What has TPS to do with this?
We should discuss about torrentinvites.se
Dretskol and Apan_1337 are two hardcore traders and are also the two guys I hate most.
Dretskol = Amberg
Apan_1337 = ConkiZz
Amberg and ConkiZz are their tracker usernames, ban those assholes.

+1 to that mate, nice pick up.
The Anti Trader Group Says:
We asked Queen nicely about to remove the trading section. She has yet not replied. we also said that we had more ip numbers and I don’t think she believed us. We are now tired of her game so we post some of the information we have here to get her to answer.
This is one of the smaller list we have with traders from Torrentinvites.se
Do you now believe that we can find you?
The trackers we represent want you to totally stop trading or you will face a global ban. and if you still not understand, Follow the tracker rules or get banned!
Queen have our email if you like to contact us regarding the ban.
And so everyone know. If queen had done what we asked from the beginning and stopped trading this would never had happened. so if you face ban, it is Queen that did it. She did not want to follow the tracker rules so we gave them the information about traders.
/The Anti Trader Group
Invite Giveaways ONLY. Says:
Best GA site IMO
lol .. tbh Trading is the worst thing to do on planet … if u ever trade u r gonna be taken down … no matter how much u hide ..
Be a Anti-Trader !!!
lol who cares? Do you really expect every person whose getting copyrighted material for free to care about the people who run the tracker.
People will manipulate everything until it is exactly what they want. Filesharing is the result of wanting stuff for free and quickly. Trading is another result of that. So are the torrent apps that try to get higher speeds by screwing other peers, so is the app which sends back false data to trackers.
You can’t draw the line if you’ve already crossed it. You just have to deal with it, but these people are no worse than anyone else who uses p2p for the questionable content.
Truth, would you give your house keys to a complete stranger? Would you even care if this random person that you were to trade an invite with was either with the Feds or the MPAA?
People like you are the reason that sites can be so easily infiltrated.
Quote : ‘Do you really expect every person whose getting copyrighted material for free to care about the people who run the tracker.’
Mate, I do care about who runs the tracker, and the community there. Its very clear that you are content orientated and nothing more… Do you even care about the communities that you are a part of? Or are you the type to hit and run, then create a dupe account when you cant handle the warnings? Seriously mate, get a grip, Trading aint cool. And as the Anti Traders have made very clear, you will get caught.
Torrentinvites.se is actually a great site, i wish everyone could understand that. All hail them. And Anti trading group, that list of urs is pure bullshit.
Serb=RedDress zillion nicked unethical, trapper wannabe mod etc.
Trapping traders, users by your own trades gives you a good reputation.
We all know how the system works, you release an ip and gloabal ban people but where is the ethic at trading with them and trapping them with your corrupt ways to do it. Yes you are disgrace to whole torrenting community and one way or another system in general pays for your debts. When they get rid of you, all trackers that you have work with will take a breath and If not they are only loosing reputation and many good members just because of this childish games and acts. With trapping issues you can do that to dumb ppl with your agressive methods at traders board, but some of them are not giving up and they are much more agressive than you are. What you do is you create monsters out of sleeping ppl and you are stupid to think that you get rid of them. Under the surface there is and will be always shit, dont look elsewhere you bring that shit to decent trackers.
all of the invites forum are nonsense.tps.neon.TI..all full of lamers
Serbs only intention is to overhype the gft tracker. Ever wondered why all ppl that said gft around, banned at everwhere. Its not about the secrecy of a lame tracker, its the ultimate scam to sell invites to his own tracker.
TTC has born at a site called FST. Its a secret section at FST for ultimate traders. Trusted Traders Community or Club whatever. Now you have seen all. Guess whats the idea TTC has been built at, so that they can bring more sell contacts to Serb. Who build TTC anyways ? haha
Serb is a 100 nicked person (Devil In Disguise), Just a prick to sell his own tracker invites and ofcourse ban everyone that says GFT aloud on the way. Overhyped secret places born each year. If he cant make the money he close it down and reopen it with a new face. Yes you will be scammed again and again and again and again. Because money is the only God in his world. Guys like Serb will cook that cold dish and serve you hot each time, because secrecy is tempting.
Well I tried to sign up to TPS. They asked me in the online interview what did I think about Trading.
I said i didnt agree with it, but if you build up a friendship with someone and offer them a invite then I dont think thats trading thats Inviting.
The mod responded in so many words wrong answer goodbye and banned me!
I still dont see what was wrong with my answer, unless of course TPS are a trading site and because I wouldnt trade and I would only offer invites to friends they didnt want me. Shame really because I didnt want to find a new tracker I just wanted to join the community.
Do not waste your time with TPS.
The interview with TPS did not work for me - it’s fine.
They claim 7000 members so far - so what? Who cares?
Less trading on TPS - good on them.
Holy grail inside the TPS ? I dobt so
If you want a tracker - there are plenty on the web. Just join and work your way through.
If you want a society - there are plenty forums on trackers or whatever, social networks, etc. Again - join and work your way through.
