It receives high traffic from South Asia including countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. On a global scale, the site has become a legendary Desi tracker famous for its nonstop releases in movies, music, and mixed media. Not to mention it was the first website of its kind to bring the very first Desi featured torrents. Like most torrent web communities, the website is run by a vBulletin code that operates user ratio and post count. Upgrade and promotions are based on forum activity and experience.

    Speed: 9/10
    Most, if not all, releasers and rippers on DT have seedboxes and external servers dedicated entirely to seeding. There is an entire group made just to help others and people with low bandwidth seed.

    Reliability: 10/10
    The site is always available 24/7. The tracker is always online and available. All users can upload content at any point of the day or night no matter where they reside. The website is maintained by experienced vBulletin experts and encoders. Very few if any bugs are present in the ratio maintenance and the downloading process. Every torrent is spyware, virus, and malware free.

    Content: 9/10
    There are always new movies and music as well a variety of different things always available to download. The quality of the content is superb. DT Moderators are strict enforces of quality material. With every material release, there is a mandatory technical specification describing video/audio codes, format, and bit rate.

    Community: 7/10
    A majority of users just maintain their ratio well above 1.00 and continue to download and seed torrents. However, many users engage in heated debates, participate in global awareness issues, and speak about their opinions regarding a recent issue.

    That "however" makes it look like what follows is something negative, but I don't see the problem with discussions as long as there isn't any flaming or that sort of stuff.
    "Come visit sometime, okay? We'll always be here for you. We... we all love you."
