Just when it appeared that the SceneLife crew were really on a positive roll with their latest creation “The X”, a DB failure sent them back at least two weeks. This unfortunate mishap wiped out literally thousands of new users when signups opened and FSF was forced to eat our words when we suggested that they’d probably never have ‘open registration’. Well, the proverbial cat’s out of the bag, so to speak - the URL is not much a secret anymore (although we’ll still refer to them herein as “X”); even screenshots & reviews can be found floating around. Then again; why not just sign up for yourself - “The X” will be open for registration for the next 5 days, so we’ve been told directly by one of their sysops.

**UPDATE - 05/21/2010
** - Signups are now closed.
Downtime - 2010-05-16
Due to some unforeseen reasons, our server had a mini meltdown of sorts and our database had gotten corrupted to the point that we could not recover it. As a result of this, we are forced to roll back and use a slightly older backup than we would have liked to use and ALL accounts that were opened since 4/29 are lost. There is slightly silverish lining to this story, it appears that pretty much most of the site code was untouched. We know this comes at an awkward time as we were in the middle of open signups and moving forward from the “Beta” process. However, this is a minor set back and we will continue to move forward, we do apologize for the inconvenience. As an extra note: any torrents that you have downloaded during this time are also lost.
Although the site was down, we did take the opportunity to move forward and implement our PLANNED updated passkey system. What this means is that we’ve updated the code and optimized it greatly. However, due to some of the changes in the code, all passkeys had to be reset as they no longer will be valid. We have done this already on our end and ask that you update the information in your clients to reflect the new information, or they will no longer work properly.
In acknowledging that many people have made donations since 4/29, we ask that those people contact a System Engineer (or higher) with the information used when the donations were made (The date of the donation, your name, the amount donated, and possibly a screenshot if you have it). Please include as much detail as possible so we can verify and make sure you get the appropriate credits. Again we do apologize for the inconveniences. Members can find the staff list HERE.
Once again; We are really sorry for this. We know just a simple “sorry” is far from good enough, so there will be “gifts” and lots of other fun stuff coming up soon. Also this problem will most likely never happen again in the future.
As much as we would love to process ratio fix requests… the massive amount of them coming in makes that impossible.
I’ve witnessed some negative feedback in certain forums about the DB rollback, in which everyone on the tracker lost 2 week’s worth of ratio credit (not to mention all those lost accounts). People are complaining that this is unfair; and rightly so (well, sort of). But it’s not comparable to what happened when ScT went *poof* whereby most members lost terabytes of upload credit and an untold amount of unrecoverable donation dollars. People hardly even complained about that; sadness in the BT community overshadowed those events. At least “The X” came back online and are offering a way for donators to receive their due accolades.
I say - suck it up - they have over 16,000 freeleech torrents in their ‘Spam’ section; it really shouldn’t be all that difficult to buffer your ratio again. Plus, they’re open for registration - directly, no recruitment, no waiting for an IRC interview. If you don’t like the tracker, then just don’t (re)join it - go over to TorrentDay or IPT then.
I think “The X” rocks!
I think “The X” rocks!
totally agree with you
invite forum fag Says:
i’m looking for a tracker with a history of fuckups–any suggestions?
Im out.. Any tracker with these problems is not worth my time
Whatever, any asshats who belong to a tracker that does not experience fuckups are lying and retarded. Yup, retarded.
Join and You Won’t Regret!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Says:
Seriously people these sort of things happen, and The X is going to be the next best thing in the Torrent World, it is a tracker that is going to be special unique and different from the rest. I have no hesitation in joining again after all in the long run ill be laughing not those who decided to desert the tracker due to one manor setback. Why don’t you look at the bright side:
1. 21K active torrents
2. A huge spam freeleech download section.
3. Wonderful community
4. Beautiful interface and easy navigation.
5. No interview or anything, a chance to join one of the best tracker to exist.
This tracker is the greatest!!!
so what if they were down for 2 weeks… it happens once or twice to every tracker.. and X was only at a BETA STAGE when this happen…
im proud to be here.. 16 000 + freeleech torrents, 4000 + normal torrents with 500-600 new torrents daily and insane forum activity! i get everything i want!
join and see for yourself
The X sucks they see nobody donate and they want new users to come to do that … well that wont happen’ loosers
Well, when I tried to sign up by clicking on the sign up link posted above, just a min ago, all i got was this:
Sorry, signups are closed! “
It was a shame with the backup thing but we’re all human and sometimes things don’t work out as we wish they would have. I think Staff will be working hard making sure this doesn’t happen again.
It is indeed a great site - Staff are good (except scrap :p, jk lol <3)
The packs… Awesome would be an insult - they’re just insanely great!
Pleasant to the eyes, a good community and X already achieved what many trackers never do, even throughout years. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity so get it while it’s hot!
-does the chicken dance-
X is the most awesome tracker i’ve ever seen!
this is probably ur last chance to join peeps!! go go go go
I personaly love the site, all torrents are are being seeded by a 1Gb box.. many many packs… nice pres ( just look at the announce irc channel) what can I say i just love the site
fuck the haters!
I am joining coz its only tracker which has site and tracker SSL.
other trackers might have this but they must be ftn ptn etc etc..which are impossible to get into.
so untill X provides me SSL I will stay.
FTN & PTN are not impossible to get into. I got into FTN without even trying to. PTN have recruitment threads. If you’re not a retard you can get in.
New headlines, “The X” : The top public tracker in the BT world. Easier to get in than Demonoid.
this tracker sux big time, will fail just like previous version, scenelife …
nothing new, nothing special…
can someone tell me what he has found special on this ‘new misterious tracker’?
Nothing they just taught people will donate if they come with a new 0day tracker but … from the begining they started wrong with banning India and Romania and no only with this thing but they were l33t from the beggining with this shit hidden tracker or what the heck they want to do.
Not all but 90% din new l33t trackers with hidden link and shit are dead now
banned Romania and Israel
best tracker ever!
they got everything and a small downtime problem isn’t going to stop them continue their awesomeness-streak!!!
if you don’t like it just stfu… nobody said you have to join.. infact it’ll be good for the tracker to keep retards like you out
fuck all the haters… the X rocks!!
why is it the best? it’s like SCC, TL, PTM but only without peers. this makes it the worst from the best
Jeah pack is cool, http://i45.tinypic.com/2d13bro.jpg
Music packs are also cool:
| Note: Spreading this collection outside ViPMUSiC is a violation against site policy!
The X is a F***K !
it’s just a useless tracker, which is up for 1 hour and down for 23 hour.
you’re a collector, bro.
LOL @ 24, 25, 26.
And as it states in the rules on “SeX”:
Breaking these rules will get you banned instantly!
* Do NOT upload our torrents (specially exclusive torrents) to other trackers! Stealing torrents and uploading the torrents (or the data) elsewhere will result in your account being DISABLED and IP banned,.
yea, why bother with another shitty scene site. scc is #1 always, so if you really have to go to the bottomfeeder of 0day trackers cuz u are don’t have contacts, so be it.
Lawl. I cbb joining this crap, lame, stupid, gay, shitty tracker that’s going to die in a few months.
You might as well close registration faggots, no one wants to join anymore
That’s it , enuff is enuff. Cock-up after cock-up and now they throw the doors open to any tom,dick and scammer to try and pay for the cock ups. So that’s it , you’ve lost me, might as well go join Demonoid …..same thing .
Is it down yet again…or what??.
What is the login url?.When I went for this address,’scenexpress.net’,it shows…different page
‘Trains Galore!’….this is what it says!
Wow apparently you guys dont know what your talking about and apparently you just wanna trash something. Maybe go to a tracer channel and you will see that SeX’s pre’s are consistent with SCC and SCC and SeX are always in the top 2 or 3 in any race. So go ahead and trash talk and piss and moan all you want. We dont want you in our tracker anyways. So they had a server problem and was down 30 hours big freaking deal! Ive been a member of SCC for a long time and SCC goes down from time to time! So be a bunch of whiny ass bitches we dont care. The tracker rocks, the irc rocks, and your just mad its gonna shit all over the long time premiere trackers of past.
Who cares about first 1-3 places on traces when there’s no peers except the seedbox? STN had also great pre-times and even 3 seedboxes (hello to yocto).
If [x] doesn’t reach the maximum number of active users it will die like STN did, imo. Only time will tell =)
Wow, so many cry babies. You all need to get a life and act your age, unless you are all under the age of 10? Lol! Anyways, this tracker looks very promising and its better than 95% of all other trackers out there already. Just give this tracker a few months and after signups close, this will be the most sought out tracker out there, just wait and see.
@Lowl: wtf are you talking about..
SCC: Raced 1 minute, 25 seconds after pre.
SeX: Uploaded 5 mins, 43 secs after Pre
Really consistent with SCC. Thats just one example, all the other pres are the same.
jus signed up , speeds are so so , back to rlslog and sceneflux with my hotfile premium
Why is there no XBOX Games?
Come to SqN, and the speed wil be like there is something big in your arses!
yeah @ 34. sex is never close with scc. tv is the only one that is comparable to scc, so don’t make stupid comparisons #31.
See you open your mouth again and again you dont know what your talking about! Maybe the only stuff getting raced at the moment is tv genius ever thought about that! Everything else is getting uploaded manually! The tracker is less than a month old! Im done with you! Im not going to argue with some snot nosed kid! You definately dont know what your talking about. To everyone else if you want to come to a sweet tracker come check SeX out its a sweet place to be.
dude get your facts straight and dont be a retard..
X is less than 1 month old and is already achieving other trackers haven’t done for many many years… and yes LOTS of their pre-times can be compared with SCC’s… they have actually won lots of races against them… why don’t you get your facts straight before posting BS…
The only reason you don’t see them more in pre-chans is cause they are taking a pause from being traced.. go to any decent pre chan and you’ll see this:
[ SCC ] [ #2 ] [ North.American.Poker.Tour.S01E02.Venetian.25K.Bounty.Shootout.Part.2.of.3.HDTV.XviD-FQM ] [ 2m 54s After Pre ] [ Race Won By SeX 3s Ago ]

The point is that X is awesome.. and you don’t know wtf your talking about.. so you should just stfu.. if you don’t like the tracker don’t join.. fucking hater
ur all having a pointless discussion….
SCC is great and X is great… both are great!!!
yes SCC is better right now, but X has only been around for 1 month…..
imho if u got scc or X u don’t need another scene tracker.. both got everything and are great in everyway…
And just like clockwork SCC is down, but hey maybe they should look a that, what’s their excuse being around as long as they have……
what a piece of crap tracker, first meltdown makin me lose GB of ul, now it can’t get the numbers rite. dl 700, tracker says i dl 1.03 GB… not even the worst Romanian trackers sux this much balls.
I’m not entirely sure where the claims of stellar pre-times are coming from.
As of this post:
[DAY STATS] [ TV: 107, DH: 74, TL: 41, SCC: 38, ScP: 15, XNT: 11, SB: 8, TD: 6, SeX: 3, VIP: 2, ST: 1, PTM: 1 ]
[WEEK STATS] [ TV: 585, SCC: 303, DH: 272, TL: 188, XNT: 120, SB: 57, ScP: 26, PTM: 21, TD: 18, VIP: 14, DB: 14, SeX: 13, FF: 12, DDT: 8, TBy: 7, ST: 6, ZSM: 5, FSC: 4, PTN: 3, BTN: 2 ]
That said, pre times are sorta a silly metric (oooh, you got the file literally 8 seconds before me). Community and original content matter more. How SeX measures up on these fronts is still left to be seen (scene?).
RIp ScL…give it up already…Rest in peace
[X] FTW !
Can someone invite me? I missed the train… :S
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Why bother? Torrent day gives me everything.
