There’s a new PreDB website that not only offers a comprehensive listing of new scene releases, but also shows Traces - or torrent races. Introducing Trac3.me, a collaborated effort from the pros at APNet and ScnSrc. Trac3.me, also known as Trace, is a service similar to other PreDBs - but with an interesting twist. Not only are scene releases indexed in the thousands, but also displayed are the private trackers who pick up each release and their associated pretimes.
Trac3 - the Internet’s first real PHP trace DB - has actually been in beta for about 2 months, but recently made their public debut on October 10th. Behind the scenes, their PreDB is already 43,000+ strong to complement nearly 50 different private trackers currently being tracked. Other release details consist of Info mouseovers; which include # of files and release size. Nuked releases (if applicable) are also shown including the reason for the nuke.
Pretimes are listed next to each release, and a handy mouseover feature on individual tracker icons shows the pretime for each. Icons can be clicked-in to show individual tracker stats (all-time) in relation to number of races and placing.
Here’s a sample list of the current Trac3 stats:
Current amount of releases in the DB: 43,052
Total amount of sites tracked: 50
Top 5 Fastest (#1 pre) Sites:
SCC - 7,649
TGB - 5,283
ScT - 3,170
PTM - 3,054

Top 5 Second Placers:
PTM - 3,780

Top 5 Third Placers:

TGB - 2,033

Stay tuned! We’ll be collating the statistics for all private tracker pretimes to compare in one table. Look for an update soon!
This is pretty badass. Thanks for the info, sharky!
Love IT ..HUH…:)
too much hype Says:
THeres now 2 much hype, its not a race or a club. It was an idea but its become a compitition, good trackers have fast speed and good pre times but best of all HAVE FAST SPEED! and secondly a few good assholes to make hanging out on that site not to bad.
lockerz.com invites Says:
Sweet….good news to hear
just shows that all the hype for scc and sct over a minute or two. If a site had tv or movies an hour before others then maybe it would be a big deal. Torrentvault for new tv shows does just fine.
Thanks for the excellent post sharky. Lee really did do a fantastic job. Big thanks to erebus, tomato and all the other wonderful people from APNet and ScnSrc.
Although PReTimes is an Overrated Stat , this Website works Excellent !!!!
Great Job done y its Creators , I think I will add it to my Sig !!!
sorry..what EXACTLY is pretimes?
It’s what comes before times.
100x times better
too bad you no you can’t filter categories
Just, you could just do an advanced search, chosing which categories you want it to display?
Oh wait this is about TRAC3 haha my bad xD
Nice site, I noticed a problem though, scc isn’t show up on (mp3) releases when looking at their site they have a majority of them and the fastest pretime at that
Any word on what happened to the site?
Trac3.me is still online.
