    Speed.cd has closed open registrations now:

    From their signup page:

    The time has come,
    and no longer will you see,
    open signups at speed.cd

    Now you must pray,
    with all your might,
    that one of your friends has an invite

    It's time for us to see,
    if the cheaters will learn,
    that a good ratio is something you have to earn

    If your friend has an invite,
    then call them right now,
    we won't do it for you. Not later, not now

    If you have an invite to give,
    then choose your friends wisely,
    if you invite a cheater we'll ban you both, and we don't do it nicely!

    If you've got no friends that are members,
    but you really want to join,
    then we may be able to help in exchange for some coin

    For only US$10,
    You'll be able to see,
    what it's like to be a VIP on speed.cd

    In exchange for your kindness,
    you will get from us,
    10GB upload credit, one invite, and much more with no fuss

    So what are you waiting for?
    Don't delay, where are your wits?
    Join us right now and "Push Your Speed To The Limits!!"




    Kinda unfortunate because I was looking for a movies tracker and I know they were open about a week ago, when I thought demonoid was good enough for me, so I didn't sign up. Oh well, I'll look around for CN or whatever.

    They could have at least made it a haiku. At any rate, there's a resident CN staffer active here at FST. I'm sure if you drop in a legitimate request he won't mind lending you a hand so that you can join the fun.

    Also: Is speed.cd actually a movie tracker? Why pick a cd domain name?

    I thought it was a cd tracker too, but who knows. I don't think they're located in China, but they are a general tracker with a big focus on movies/tv.

    Also, thanks for the advice about the request. I'd do it, but I don't quite have the cojones to make a request. I'm still considering whether it's a smart move for me, because I don't have the hardware to survive somewhere that is "moderate"ly hard to keep a ratio at (according to the "What Trackers Offer" thing). Seriously, I'd probably be better off at a large general tracker, I'm thinking. For example, I have an account at waffles, but I'm scared to download anything for fear of harming my ratio - I'll probably wait until I can properly rip a lot of CD's. But thanks again.

    Au contraire. As long as you seed without hit & running, CN staffers don't give a damn about ratios (they haven't disabled any user based on bad ratio as far as I know). They do tell you to maintain a 1+ ratio, though, and that's easily achieved with their generous bonus points system.

    Hmm... That sounds enticing. You don't think he'll turn me down because I'm not established anywhere yet? Like the most I have uploaded is about 12 gigs at BCG. OTOH, I have positive ratios everywhere, and I seed forever as long as I have the space and they allow my client.

    Oh, and ringhunter, you're awesome.

    I'd look for a KG invite if it weren't so damn hard to seed there, from what I hear. I need to find a ratioless tracker, because I seed as long as I can, but not particularly the things people want...

    Nor do I have a seedbox.

    PM me if yer interested in joining either PTP, Goem, TC, KG or even PtN for that matter

    PTP has frequent freeleech.. so do TC and Goem.
    PtN is ratio free.
    KG is relatively difficult. You should be okay as long as you upload torrents, jump on new ones and seed for a substantial amount of time, as they do have seed bonus.

    KG isn't harder to seed at than most other niche trackers, the real question though is what sort of movies and in what format are you looking for?KG is pretty useless to most people .If you aren't specifically looking for foreign,"art' or older movies then you might just as well forget about it.


    As for torrents I got this off another site .What it doesn't tell you though is how many of those are just dupes in different formats .

    Movie Tracker: Number of Torrents (active):
    PassThePopcorn 21,559
    TehConnection 11,149
    CN 11,800
    PtN 3,182 (as of August 6th/2010)
    It's all Meg's fault.

    @IdolEyes: The table is from a FSF post, right? And yeah, KG would be useless to me - I'm using AsianDVDClub for Asian movies, but I was just looking for a tracker that does mainstream English language films. Probably coupled with my Google skills to find obscure content, any of those sites in the table would work for me, I think. I'll narrow it down with some research.

    @n00bz0r: Thanks for the offer. I'll send you a PM after I do some more research on which site is right for me.
