Activity has definitely picked up concerning new private trackers during the past month or so. Here’s our scary Halloween edition of what’s hot / what’s not among new trackers - including two new Gazelles you probably haven’t heard about; a great new scene tracker called Kaste; and, as usual, a bevy of sites worth forgetting.
- — Category: General (and scene) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup URL: http://total-bytes.com/signup.php
Online since 10/16/09 - Total-Bytes already lists a very impressive 1,700+ torrents in less than two weeks since launch. For reasons unknown, we’re not sure why this tracker hasn’t become more popular.
Our prediction — We have to give Total-Bytes a thumbs-up, for content alone. Their browse page is a tad suspect and only lists 5 torrents at a time - and their search function isn’t the strongest, either. We do like seeing the number of torrents listed next to each browse category - it appears that movies represent nearly 60% of all torrents.
- — Category: General Codebase: TorrentStrike
- — Signup URL: Not found
Another October startup is Ghost Ship. You don’t have to worry about signups being closed anytime soon - there’s just 319 members out of a max 75,000. Total torrents on the site tally in at 211 - although there’s only 139 total seeders spread out amongst all torrents… you see where we’re going with this?
Our prediction — In addition to selecting a disastrous domain name, sheer ugliness alone will sink this ship faster than any iceberg could, regardless of content. Ghost-Ship is one tracker you might just want to take out with you for Halloween; it needs not a costume to fit in. We’re amazed that a group of guys would come together with the cool idea to start up a new private tracker, and proceed to elect regular TorrentStrike for the codebase (psst - it’s not 2005 anymore). Was it a vote? TBDev might just as well have saved this one. Coulda Woulda Shoulda.
- — Category: Games Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup URL: http://gamertorrents.org/signup.php
GamerTorrents is - you guessed it - a new games tracker for console and PC releases. This logoless site indexes 130 total torrents (74 active) and 534 members.
Our prediction — Activity here certainly could be better, especially in regards to new torrents. Three days after launch, GT listed 69 active torrents on Oct. 11th, and today lists just 74. That’s not to say that new content isn’t coming in - but torrents are dying quicker than they should be for such a new tracker.
- — Category: HD Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup: http://www.hdtshare.com/signup.php
HDTShare, or HD-Universe is a brand new tracker for all-things HD. You’ll notice some familiar P2P groups here such as CtrlHD, ESiR, PRoDJi, D-Z0N3, SiNNERS and SEPTiC. Content is wide-ranged and includes full BluRays, WMVHDs, x264s and even some audio.
Our prediction — A little too soon to tell, HDTShare lists just 35 torrents since launching on Oct. 18th. Still, you can never go wrong with any new HD tracker, especially one that’s using a slick TBDev codebase. Largest torrent listed is a huge 80 GB Star Trek 2009 - 2 Disk BluRay set.
- — Category: Movies (Crime) Codebase: xbtit v2
- — Signup URL: here.
NoirStyle is, first & foremost, an eD2k site that recently released a torrent tracker to complement the eDonkey links. Content pertains to movies - or more specifically, crime-related classics and film noirs dating back to as early as the ’20s. Too bad we didn’t see Frankenstein listed.
Our prediction — The eD2k site is doing rather well, although the tracker needs torrents badly. This movie site (on the tracker side) features just 23 torrents so far, the oldest one being added on 20/09/09.
- — Category: Cartoons/Kids Codebase: unknown
- — Signup URL: None. Use IRC to request invite.
Fox-kids.info has been reborn as Neptoons (all prior F-K members should be able to login using the same user/pass). Direct signups are closed, however invites can be requested through their IRC invite channel at irc.dejatoons.net/neptoons. Ghouls & Goblins alike will find some great content here, as there’s a decent selection of seasons and other large torrents.
Our prediction — Unfortunately the new URL didn’t bring with it the old torrents, as Fox-Kids ”used to be the most kickass toon tracker on the net” as one reader so eloquently put it in an email to us at FSF. Content is starting to come back (there’s 87 active torrents) although kids trackers have long been known to struggle. Very sharp-looking tracker, if we may say so - the future looks bright for Neptoons.
- — Category: General (Romanian) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup: http://masterfilles.org/signup.php
MasterFilles is as dead as a zombie; they just don’t know it yet. There have been entire days, even weeks, with no newly uploaded torrents. Since Oct. 13th, only two (yep 2) torrents have been added that actually contain seeds. We should mention that everything is freeleech; that is, if you can find a torrent with a seed or two.
Our prediction — Again, here’s another tracker that has more torrents than seeders - way more. Total indexed torrents list in at 479 (not bad… until you read the next part) with only 73 total seeders scattered throughout the site, and that’s with 537 registered members. Pity, really - since the TBDev design is quite handsome and there’s multiple browse pages for different site content (if there was any content).
- — Category: Scene (Latvian) Codebase: unknown
- — Signup: http://www.kaste.org/signup.php
Kaste is a Latvian/English tracker that started out around the end of August. Content is quite a mixed-bag: there’s a vast array of English scene releases that make up for the majority of the content; although Latvian (and some Russian) torrents are also a staple. In two short months, Kaste already lists some 2,100+ active torrents.
Our prediction — Kaste’s server is blazingly fast, which you’ll see for yourself when clicking into torrent details or browsing pages. There’s a fair selection of diversified scene content that’s hard to find on other trackers (think: SCC). Also worth noting is that all scene releases have pretimes tagged to them, and Kaste isn’t slow to compete. We highly recommend this tracker! Kaste, where have you been hiding?
- — Category: General (Polish) Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup: http://teamtracker.pl/signup.php
You might have to wait a while for the confirmation email to arrive (we did). TeamTracker currently lists 507 active torrents, but we surmise the actual number of active torrents to be far fewer than reported (that’s good ol’ TS-SE for you). Non-Polish torrenters need not bother signing up - nothing here will be of interest. Members can’t help but notice the huge Help Desk zone that takes up about a third of every page - why do I need to skype staff; and if I did, what the hell would I ask them? How to use torrents?!
Our prediction — Get your right-hand warmed up, since you’ll need to click the “Thanks” button before downloading anything. Why do sites do that? Anyways, download speeds on 1-seed torrents were very fast - suggesting a seedbox is hosting new content - which saved them from getting a thumbs-down.
- — Category: General (French) Codebase: TorrentTrader
- — Signup: http://piratescene.net/account-signup.php
There’s plenty of room for growth among French trackers, and PirateScene happens to be one of the newer ones (oldest torrent is from Oct. 12th). Not much going on here just yet (1,783 members and just 73 active torrents).
Our prediction — It goes without saying; there’s not much appeal here to international torrenters. Movies & TV are French releases, and there’s not much else.
- — Category: General Codebase: Forum
- — Signup: Look for it.
Everyone will probably agree: Forum-style trackers suck. And BloodFlowerz probably won’t become an exception to the rule. While there’s over 340 different ‘torrent threads’, more than half of them are dead torrents (and that’s being generous).
Our prediction — It’s gonna take a lot more than a fancy arcade with weak games to save this one. The actual tracker (and torrents) are no doubt secondary to the arcade, which is clearly indicated in the site’s coding.
- — Category: General/Scene Codebase: Gazelle
- — Signup: site is currently invite only.
Pre-Depot is the new location for BakedBits. This mostly-stock Gazelle tracker features 907 members and 236 total torrents.
Our prediction — Torrents were slow coming for the first few weeks, although 150 new ones have been added over the past 14 days. At last check, only 97 of 236 torrents have a seed. We were expecting a little more here from the old BitNation/BakedBits team.
- — Category: General (Romanian) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup URL: http://wanthe.net/signup.php
What the torrent community really needs is another general Romanian tracker. OK, maybe not. WanThe.net lists 891 members and 353 total torrents (with 229 of them active).
Our prediction — Pretty decent start so far; online for only a week now, and already putting up some good torrent numbers. A good majority of the content is scene stuff such as PC-ISOs and Appz.
- — Category: General (Thai) Codebase: unknown
- — Signup: www.iliketorrents.com/signup.php
ILikeTorrents is a new Thai tracker that lists 4,523 torrents & 3,365 members since coming online in late August. Impressive stats; although there are only 762 seeders, and zero leechers. No leechers on all those torrents?! Why’s that, you ask? Because the torrents we tested indicate a problem in our BT client - Failure: error secure0.
Our prediction — On content, ILT gets a big thumbs-up. On usability, they get a thumbs-down. But other things drag it down, such as having no category icons and no ability to browse cats. When clicking on the details for each torrent, a new browser tab opens to display it. Oh, and the torrents don’t work. Fix that, or close it down.
- — Category: General Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup URL: http://atomictorrents.net/signup.php
Since coming online on August 26th, AtomicTorrents already lists 665 active torrents with 1,256 members. In our tests, DL speeds on 1-seed torrents were satisfactory coming from a Kimsufi seedbox.
Our prediction — Off to a good start, and has at least two good dedicated uploaders. Much of the stuff is scene (but watch out for edited torrent names), and movies make up for roughly 60% of all torrents.
- — Category: General Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup URL: http://immortalseed.com/signup.php
Immortalseed is living proof of how to spin a TSSE-based tracker into a successful site. This general tracker lists nearly 6,000 active torrents and 30,162 members in their first three months. For those who don’t mind TS Special Edition trackers, this one rocks! Torrents here aren’t dead; there’s plenty of seeders on most of the stuff.
Our prediction — This family-friendly tracker offers SSL-forced browsing for added security, and all users are able to upload (there’s a special section devoted to this) but note ”We do NOT allow any adult torrents on our site of any kind.”. Sort of sounds like TorrentLeech.
- — Category: General Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup URL: http://scene4.us/signup.php
Scene4.us presently lists zero torrents, so you might be asking why this ghost-town is even in this list.
Our prediction — We previously had an account at Scene4.us earlier last month, and the site was beginning to do well. Then it all of the sudden vanished into thin air for about a month, only to return the day before Halloween. Certainly worth keeping an eye on; they might just make our next months list.
- — Category: TV Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup: http://www.tvbytes.net/signup.php
500+ members couldn’t all be wrong, could they? TVBytes is quite possibly the worst TV tracker we’ve ever signed up at. Since Aug. 18th, there’s just 83 active torrents on the site, with blocks of entire weeks with no newly added torrents.
Our prediction — Started out strong, but fizzled fast. Only 15 torrents were added for all of October, and they were all single-episodes. However, there’s some decent series’ and season packs worth checking out from back when they actually gave a shit about this tracker.
- — Category: General Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup URL: http://www.itorrents.org/signup.php
New iTorrents is a September startup that lists 384 active torrents. (112 movies/XviD; 60+ console/PC-ISO games).
Our prediction — This isn’t a tracker that buffers their torrent count with tiny appz and music releases - there’s some decent-sized torrents here (all hosted on a fast seedbox).
- — Category: TV (Norwegian) Codebase: Gazelle
- — Signup URL: https://nortv.net/register.php
NorTV is a newer Norwegian TV tracker that’s been around for about 4 months now. Most releases are PDTV (Pure Digital TV) but there’s also HDTV - naturally, everything is in PAL format. Currently lists 856 enabled users and 613 total torrents.
Our prediction — English users will find this tracker useless, but for Norwegians, NorTV rocks! This slick-looking Gazelle uses SSL forced on the site (but not tracker), and everything appears to be seedbox hosted. There’s even a forum area for other tracker invites which is accessible to all members.
- — Category: Video Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup: www.shareinstinct.com/signup.php
ShareInstinct is a video-only tracker mostly with scene and Romanian releases - although there’s no discernible theme to the torrents (there’s XviDs, x264s, TV, movies, anime, BRRips). 210 total torrents are indexed since October 10th.
Our prediction — Aside from offering more than just a few aXXo torrents (which we’ll pretend we didn’t see), ShareInstinct is off to a decent start. More than 80 new torrents were added in the past two days.
- — Category: General Codebase: TS-SE
- — Signup URL: http://d-reamz.com/signup.php
D-Reamz lists 170 total torrents and 101 members since launching on Oct. 7th.
Our prediction — The content here doesn’t fit into any other genre aside from ‘general’ - there’s wallpapers, tiny apps and other junk to beef up the torrent count. There’s just one real dedicated uploader, and that’s the sysop.
- — Category: General (French) Codebase: unknown
- — Signup URL: You’ll find it.
Reload-Paradise’s replacement is now online at Play-The.net. It appears that the old user database has been imported into the new location (lists 75,000+ members). Torrents total in at 3,386 and there’s already some great peer numbers on many.
Our prediction — Nothing less than greatness can be expected for the future of Play-The.net. At last check, their sister site at www.hd-life.net was displaying a 404 error.
Thankyou for not promoting PEG in this line up. Any tracker that pays their uploaders per torrent, and is hosted in plain sight in the US is either FBI in disguise, or completely and utterly retarded. Thanks again, we dont need idiots like these pretending to be elite.
Blah blash Says:
Awesome i might join some.
Immortalseed invite only
Don’t waste your time on ImmortalSeed, you can only sign up when you have InviteCode. And they are mentioned as new Tracker, a baby born wants to see your Di*** before letting you in!
kaste looks very nice indeed. slick interface, and some reasonably good content too.
ghost ship is terrible, signed up last week.
i don’t have the patience for total-bytes’ pure ugliness.
>Don’t waste your time on ImmortalSeed, you can only sign up when you have InviteCode.
Not True. I just joined Wednesday…registration was open from the front page…no invite or anything needed…great site and the forum moderators are ++
clik my username and there you will fiind a lot of invitation to bittorrent tracker >
Hypes up most of the “good sites” to be much more then they are really.
Not much of anything on any of them..
Looking at the torrent count for some of them just gives you a “Hmmm? Hundreds of people quit hosting torrents or filesharefreak was lying out of their…”
Immortalseed is asking for invite code. how to enter this site?
bloodflowerz is more than just a torrentsite,,there is an arcade area so members can go in and chill..581 games in there,,,normally you would have no hope of getting in here as we use a ht access,,we dont even allow links to the outside world..it just shows that you just tried popping and didn even bother your a$$ getting to know anyone..you need to be a member for a while to see what we are like..you wont find a site like us ,we dont give a fcuk about ratio’s yet and want people to come and relax and not feel pressured to download or upload..just come and relax
Hello fellow torrenters.
Although I would agree with some of the sentiment in our assessment.
Bloodflowerz is a site worth trying out ( I know I’m biased)
The is no ratio rules at present, we just trust our users will seed.
No hit and run rules either.
A couple of seed boxes on site and very helpful staff.
The board gets a bit of getting used to, I’ll accept that, but there is no friendlier like minded people on the net, I’m sure of it.
As of now, Bloodflowerz is going through open registration period, and the only actual way to find out if a site is good enough, is to take a tour yourself and make your own mind up.
Thanks for reading,
Hope to see you there.
Surely its a bit biased having site staff coming on here and shouting off about how good their site is. Its on IPB, it won’t last.
hi guys not sure y this site isnt in the list above but brand new games tracker fully loaded
Awesome news about total-bytes they are a brilliant community filling requests as fast as they can with a excellent selection of material the bit about only showing 5 torrents per page can be changed to 10 25 50 100 250 and 500 to make life easier.
this site rocks
ok having read your review I think it’s time for a few facts.
FACT There over 550 torrents available on bloodflowerz not 350 and you clearly did your snooping at a time when 3 of our seedboxes were down for reasons outwith our controll this has been rectified and steps taken to ensure it cant happen again.
FACT Your prediction of our inevetible demise is grossly inacurate, unlike other sites who continualy bombard members with donation requests or clutter the site with unsightly advertising bloodflowerz is independantly financed and its future is secure for the forseeable future.
FACT If you want to be scared to DL something because it will hurt your ratio go to revtt
FACT If you want to be hassled with continual wanings because nobody is DL the files youve snatched go to IPtorrents
FACT If you want to relaxe never be hassled about ratio and have some great people at your disposal to help when you need it come to bloodflowerz
AMEN to that bro…
Now thats a review.
as mentioned above immortalseed now requires an invite code
Again, tell me who out of SA55, Hoofa or whitestag13 isn’t staff.
as i should have mentioned in previous message
open since 61/10/09
downloaded from site todate 1.6tb
96% of torrents on dedi servers
come on guys do a review good or bad would be nice to see your opinion
yes blender we are staff but our doors are wide open for a short while for anyone with eyes to see for themselves with a few keystrokes but hey you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink lol guess we wont be seeing you, pitty!! all the best m8
About Playthenet.net no, it’s doesn’t seem that a database has been imported because they couldn’t send the email to previous member of Reload-Paradise.
lolollolololol Bloodflowerz has a database crash.
lolololo no we dont were upgrading to the new ipb3 be back online in roughly 3 hrs bigger and faster
Can I add this to the boiling pot.
We are only here to defend our site to the review.
This shows passion and commitment..
Yes at present, the admin staff new we are having upgrades, and sometimes the board or parts of it need to be closed in order to upgrade.
Where are the other site owners defending thier sites?
We don’t believe BF is going under anytime soon.
Its up to the poeple here reading, just remember, everysite has upgrades done, it makes the experience better in the long run.
We could have made alias’s here like meat-spin, to laugh and say the site was awesome, etc, but we come here with our real usernames, to show you, we are approachable, and very good people.
BTW, we are looking for a GFX artist, anyone interested
Make sure you sign up!!!! thats an order
One more thing, If you sign up after reading this, PM me on site, saying that you read this, I’ll give you a 5 gig buffer, hows that for service.
I thought you said ratios dont matter? so why the need for a 5GB buffer.
Because as all sites need to change and morph, we will inevitably go to global ratio.
never look for HnR’s, we hope and trust the users will seed, thats the sharing way.
but gaining the gigs back on BF is easy, very easy.
Including the Sunday 10gig bonus to a random active member.
The site is back up and running again the coding is finished, just a few problems with the unseeded torrents, thats being sorted now.
waiting for the uploaders to rehash.
C’mon have a look.
Dude, just admit it your site doesn’t make sense. Go to other sites, see what they are doing, then implement it at BF.
hahaha it made enough sense for you to apply for a job as supermod m8 never mind cant please everyone lol cya bl3nder
Anyway, we know Blender used to be an admin here at BF that got banned for asking for donations,
IP address and email confirm it.
FFS we are not amature’s.
We enjoy a laid back attitude, and yes blender you are welcome on BF, but you will never gain any respect between staff.
We really don’t care whether you sign up or not. it’s your loss. not our’s.
Bloodflowerz, despite it being a forum based tracker has a fantastic community, never ask or spam for donations, or smash you for HnR, or Spam your inbox for something stupid.
We are experienced torrenters, with the knowledge and abilty to help and educate.
For the haters, thanks for registering. if you would prefer us remove your account, please PM me.
Say what? My email address was opened 2 months ago?
I have never joined your site?
Seriously, post the email or IP you have, as its not mine.
Thanks FSF for review. Glad to hear nice words from respectable source! It means lot to us, so we keep pushing hard
exactly Blender the email you used was Slopsbox, and no I’ll not post the IP.
I simply dont believe in it.
I believe we are all sharers trying to get along, so why are you trying to pull us down?
all we are doing is sharing the content we have?
Is that a bad thing?
On this site which is Filesharefreak we are trying to defend and share our content with you!!!
no expense. no bullshit. ohh forget it…
The users that join, you are welcome to join the most vibrant, fun, relaxed website there is, dont expect to be hassled, the admins are human, often have a few beers with the users,, what the fuck is wrong with that?
seriously, this day and age is so stressfull the last thing you need when you go online to get your next fix/download some mod prick complains about your ratio… just doesn’t happen at BF.
OK I need to respond tomorrow, because guess what, I’m human and drunk hehe..shoot me.
Honestly, what we want is active people just to come relax and enjoy our site.
we never wanted to be the NEXT big thing, and quite franky it doesn’t bother us.
and thats fucking official…..//Bloodflowerz admin. fuck yeah!!!!
guys your killing this thread please put an end to it
The trust-instead-of-ratio-system has already been tried out; it is called public trackers.
Blood Flowerz is a joke. Actually all the new sites lick pouch. THere are so many new ones for the noobs who can’t get into a decent site. Keep pumping out these hack sites. I’ll stick to my SCT and Bithdtv.
Em what about the email? Seriously, I didn’t sign up at your site. I am calling your bluff. I am being accused of something I would not do.
Just post whatever info you have about me, because its really not me.
I would never join a shitty site like that.
LMAO @ the bakedbits scammers and their millionth attempt at running a torrent site. But oh wait, it isn’t their fault, the Illuminati keeps sending black copters to shut their site down.
Got to tell ya you are a bit passed the times the review is old for the ghost ship ooo well just shows ya don’t it LMAO!!!
Join the number 1 new growing tracker… Act quickly because sign ups only will allow 2,000 more! http:://racethe.net
ShareInstinct has now 1 month and alot of things have changed in good alot of new torrents, improvements etc. if you want movies tv eps dont hessitate join ShareInstinct.com
LOL @ Bloodflowerz in defense mode. What a soap opera. You guys remind me of the Danoz Direct ads that I watch on Kerry ann Kennerly every morning. Only thing that sucks about your tracker is that you dont throw in a free set of steak knives… Good luck guys!
RED, we enjoy sharing and relaxing, and trying to boost the ammount of shared content is not a bad thing,
Anyone who puts down a tracker is inevitably stupid.
We are here for members to grab a file and enjoy the time inbetween,
If you prefer to get your files elsewhere, it’s all good, as long as you get the file!
Ive never heard of BF but what i dont understand is with all that laid back approach why are you guys getting so uptight and defensive about peoples comments/opinions of you? seems your attitude juxtaposes your philosophy!
Personally, if you want a forum based site i would recommend darksiderg, although not a tracker it is the home to newartriot, wraith, noir and the now defunct aXXo and they genuinely do have a warm feeling to it.
ImmortalSeed is currently open for Registration…. 1 week only.
Read the review… says it all
ThumbsUp From Me!!!
total-bytes.com growing nicely now 1,200 places left till closed doors

Leave it to Hollywood to lighten up even Swedish characters in a big-budget remake. The U.S. version will most likely allow Lisbeth a bit of eyeliner, but no disturbing tattoos. I’ll stick with the original version.
