How often is it that FSF introduces a
brand-new tracker to the masses, only to disappoint our readers? Oh,
right - it happens more than we’d care to admit (duds like
[BSC](/2008/08/12/be-a-scenercom-new-0dayscene-tracker/ “BeAScener.com -
New 0Day/Scene Tracker”) which started out promising but fizzled fast).
Angst aside, that’s what we do best: post new trackers. You win some,
you lose some …you get it. But we think you’ll win with this new true
0day tracker StoreThe.net which already boasts
11,500+ torrents, complete with a killer unique request system unseen anywhere else.
UPDATE: Oct. 14th - Registration is now open until membership reaches 10,000.
StoreThe.net is an impressive new scene-only 0day tracker that’s already putting up big torrent numbers. We’ve been told, “100% of what is released on a few topsites is being fed into STN” - and we can’t argue. There’s literally hundreds of new daily additions under every genre of scene release, and there’s even a sitewide freeleech until November 10th.
Registration is currently open to STN at http://storethe.net/signup.php?, but word is they’ll be going invite only at ~1,500 members. Get in while you can - just look at those release times:
All IRC channels are now private (to STN members only).
- • Network/server: irc.storethe.net. Note: Aside from the #Help channel, all others are not accessible to non-members (require invite).
- • Main Channel: #STN (hotlink here)
- • Torrents are announced in #STN-Announce (hotlink here)
- • Request Channel: #STN-Requests (hotlink here)
- • Pre Channel: #STN-PRE (hotlink here)
- • Help Channel: #STN-Help (hotlink here)
Read more below in reference to the request channels & services.
Multiple Request System
Unheard of from any other tracker, STN currently boasts three different unique request systems through IRC.
1. DDL Requests — Members can request direct download links from file hosters. It works like this: You make a request in IRC here for a file from RapidShare, MegaUpload etc, (and supply the link) and StoreThe.net will download it for you using premium accounts, and turn the release into a torrent on the site. Great for those who don’t possess premium accounts and want to bypass freebie DL restrictions. Currently, STN features 8 of the most popular hosters - the service is automated through their IRC channel but only 20% functional at this time (should be fully operational by the weekend).
P2P Requests** — This will certainly ruffle some feathers in the BT scene - STN takes requests from other trackers. For example, say there’s a particular torrent pack that you want to download from Waffles.fm (or anywhere else), but can’t afford to blow out your ratio. Simply supply the link to the .torrent file, and STN will download the torrent for you, and post it on their own tracker. (At the very least, you’ll need to have accounts to the trackers in order to be able to supply STN with the proper torrent link). However, there’s another request alternative:
Scene Requests** — STN takes direct scene requests. Here’s how it works: Simply provide the name of a proper scene release (i.e. “Drag.Me.To.Hell.DVDRip.XviD-iMBT”) and request it in their IRC channel here (but do a !search for it first, to see if it already exists). If not, the request will be processed and added as a torrent to the site once available. Handy, even for those who don’t have accounts at any other trackers can still make requests from scene releases indexed through Dupecheck websites. Here’s the pitch as found in the forum:
I’d like to welcome you all to a fantastic new idea that STN offers that NO other BT site has.
Do you want axx to the latest stuff at the click of a button?
Do you want axx to the rare releases that are hard to find at the click of a button?
Do you want to download files from a FAST server rather than waiting for your releases to be uploaded by a “home” connection?
Well now its possible, come and join #StoreThe.NET.Requests for more info.
How This Works:
1: Join the iRCD (hotlink here)
2: Join #StoreThe.Net.Requests
3: Use the following cmd to search for a release
4: !search rlz
(Example: !search Pirates.of.the.XXth.Century.1979.DVDRip.XviD-FiCO)
5: The searchbot will then display the results of the search
<SearchBOT> Searching for: Pirates.of.the.XXth.Century.1979.DVDRip.XviD-FiCO ….
<SearchBOT> Found: /XVID/Pirates.of.the.XXth.Century.1979.DVDRip.XviD-FiCO
<SearchBOT> END OF RESULTS
6: Use the following cmd to request the release
7: !request Pirates.of.the.XXth.Century.1979.DVDRip.XviD-FiCO
<SearchBOT> REQUEST Pirates.of.the.XXth.Century.1979.DVDRip.XviD-FiCO BY Adolf
8: Your request will then be uploaded to the site
Other STN Tidbits
Topsite Access — Offers direct TOPSITE access through FTP for those that don’t want to wait. More info can be found in the forums or IRC.
Great Pretimes — Currently, STN is poised at #5 among all trackers in terms of pretimes, but if trends continue the way they are, expect them to bounce up to #3 soon.
Bonus System — Karma bonus system in place for seed hours, which can be converted into a variety of site extras (invites, upload credit, etc).
Friendly Staff — Very down-to-earth bunch, with front line support crew starting tonight.
** It’s been a long time since we’ve come across a new tracker that offers direct topsite-to-torrent content, without all those gaping holes in the scene releases. Throw in an unparalleled request system & friendly staff, and you’ve got yourself a winning combination. Simply outstanding!
any demo account to check out
sounds like an awesome tracker. just what I’ve been looking for for days
can’t register. it always says ‘Please don’t leave required fields blank!’ when all fields are filled. wtf?
all up in this region of the epidermis Says:
looks alright, certainly better than that POS SnB.
Already full o_O
“The current user account limit has been reached. Inactive accounts are pruned all the time, please check back again later… “
It seems promising,
but i think they should consider getting another design, also the name is very uncreative.
btw: member count just hit 300
NOTE: The user limit has now been increased to 1,500. Folks, use your accounts; pruning of inactive members will commence in two weeks…
Thanks for the article Sharky. User limits are now set to 1500, we’ll prune the userdb in 2 weeks for inactive users, then go invite only.
Show us what you got!
Looks like there is still ratio recording info from an under-customized TS Special Edition base. Still, plenty of cool features. I like.
Hella less than a min pre’s. Damn fast site.
Site looks extremely promising……loads of new stuff with amazing pretimes and a nice staff. looks like a real killer combo.
ts special edition?
Site is closed for signups now.
Pre’s are the fastest i’ve seen, even faster than Torrentleech by mins
wow, awesome tracker
damn, what a tracker missed to enter…
the bloody registration page didn’t work properly. and now it’s full. damn! =(
LOL @ BORG
Comparing the pre times to TL is worthless. You’re talking as if TL or any site near its level even has “fast” pre times. I can count dozens of sites that are faster than TL is.
No knock on STN as it’s legit by far.
How do i get voice in the irc?
glad i got on this one. they have a lot of mp3 releases that don’t make it to SCC.
Fact it is FASTER than or at par with TL pretimes, did I say TL is the best or fastest? NO, but it’s one of the reputable trackers around and to be compared to that is flattering esp with a NEW TRACKER. I’m not a member to the ones you said that has faster pretimes, so I CAN’T COMPARE. Think man, enough said.
say w00t w00t Says:
they’re fast with the pre-times, but they’re also missing some TV content that was upped everywhere else tonight.
@ SAYW00T W00T
Yeah they missed Survivor.S19E02, I’ll be requesting the next episode to be pred
Umm.. Xam source and poorly designed site (default other then banner).. Put some effort in.
Would gladely take a invite to this site if possible.
wow, this tracker is awesome
Great Job guys!
can anyone really send me an invite? im different.. not like the other 15 years old faggets!… don”t think im just like the other.. invite must be emailed to billbaho_2[at]hotmail[dot]com
The private tracker is now RATIO FREE, but you have to seed for 48 hours.
teh kay Says:
This is the funniest shit i have been into ! LoLz !
Thier invite process is fucked up beyond belief.
Thanks for the comments guys. Things are going great.
Yea the invite process sucked a**.. It’s a learning curve, this is my first tracker, it is NOT a carbon copy of an existing tracker, or a spin off to gain more donation.
Yes it is TS, and for a reason. The backend admin functionality of TS is unbeatable. I code for a living, and having to re-write tbdev to make it useful and secure isn’t my idea of fun (just ask the guys at spirittracker who did a fine job ). Gazelle is great if you want to spend 3-4 months making it work and adding functionality, just ask the boys at sciencehd, they did a hell of a job and it is my favorite tracker by far. I played with all the source, looked at it all. I wanted expandability, flexibility, and admin rich features. I have a good “core”, now I can mod and code the parts that need enhancement, replacement.
STN isn’t like most other trackers. We only have one, we back our sh!t up, we are friendly, and readily admit our weakness, and take criticism.
Registration is open until 4500 users are reached.
hmm… I wouldn’t mind being apart of this one. Gonna have to find an invite.
This tracker looks promising, great pretimes.
I hope in the future they will re-design the site…it is godawfull ugly and I think that will deter many people from using it. Also the search feature is pretty bad brings up a bunch of unrelated stuff.
Yeah, the design/interface leaves much to be desired. I too hope they improve it. cheers
Pretty good pre times but slow.
Registrations are open, so no need to find an invite.
Some updated graphics are coming up in a few days.
Overall design will stay the same, but we will make it look cleaner.
The search is horrible, and is something on my todo list.
We’ve implemented around 40% of the members suggestions, and will implement another 30% or so as time permits.
The site is currently on a 30mb/s vpn and a shitty box from OVH.
It’s being moved to a 4-Way Quad Core Xeon box with 16GB RAM, w 15K SAS Drives, next week, and will be sitting on a gigabit connection, so the speeds should improve as well as the pretimes.
For about 10 mins.
It’s running smoothly.
Seems someone decided if they couldn’t join, no one would be able to.
Nice upgrades you’re made there, Yocto. The site has been running much faster than before. Keep up the great work.
Is the site down? Or did I get the Ban? No can log in. No can connect to site.
It seems to be down.
I can’t connect to site, too.
YOCTO, could you get your site up and let me register on it? (:
STN is currently down for everyone!
This is the info I got on StoreThe.Net.
“IRC is currently working at irc.storethe.net
IRC will likely STOP working in a few hours temporarily
No data has been lost,
We should be up in a few hours
Post by Yocto on Sunday at 4:55pm EST (US)
If you need more information. Just start the rumor that the OVH reseller failed to pay the bill (Although I paid the reseller on the 29th of Sept)
Media & Press inquires should be directed to me @ stnewallet[at]gmail.com
(Note for police, I have no knowledge about the recent gang style slaying of the above mentioned reseller, regardless if it happened after this posting)
A note to donors:
I will extend your donor status by 30 days”
Why the hell whem I’m filling all the fields it says “Please don’t leave required fields blank!”???
the prob was in my IP. used proxie and got registered
Irc channel for request Says:
Can any regular user make that wishes from ddl or p2p? or is it only for a group of priviliged members?
STN just went Suck Says:
they’ve closed their doors to all members that won’t give them money. Fuck STN up their stupid ass.
Yocto say “this is my first tracker”
No fucking shit you moron. You obviously never went to business school either, dumbass.
lol at STN))))
Anyone know if Yocto’s abandoned this project, or is he still trying to put the site back up? Someone took him down hard core.
