What public tracker should I use now?

since Demonoid is down, perhaps forever. This really sucks, I had 98 torrents that I seeded on that tracker... a lot of rare indie music from my CD collection. Anyhoo, I need a good tracker....I tried the pirate bay a few weeks ago but was having problems with it....my upping torrent kept switching to dht and their forums said there were some issues currently with the tracker.

Any idea's/suggestions would be great. I know there's threads around that has a list of trackers but a lot of these haven't been updated in months, even years. Don't need a 3 year old obsolete tracker :) I might try TPB again, hoping they have their issues resolved but i'm still open to suggestions.

Mininova is just an indexing site (search engine).
Common enough mistake though. :P
Take Zeropaid's bizarre list for example: http://www.zeropaid.com/links/bittorrent/
:roll:

You could try:
www . torrent-downloads . to
www . sumotracker . com

If you were mainly uploading music then you could try a good music BT site, such as FileMP3, its a decent tracker and worth a try!

ilovetorrents is also a good choice for general files, obviously isn't going to be as big but its a free registration at the moment.

After some months of "shopping" Ive decided on the German zerotracker. Seems to be reliable (although the site is down atm), simple and user friendly. However, the more I look around the more I realize just how kickass Demonoid was with their excellent user stats, pm/comment section and forums... nothing in a public/private hybrid compares.

I have 18 torrents up now since 2 weeks ago and will be putting my Cd's up in FLAC format. I also make sure my torrents get onto sites like BTJunkie, Mininova, TorrentReactor and Kerrazy Torrents, among others.

Seems that The Pirate Bay has fixed their tracker issues by using a whole new tracking system in December but still decided against using it due to all the legal ramblings at the time. As great as TPB is I feel their getting too big for their own good.

Thanks for the suggestions...if I have any issues with zerotracker I'll probably give sumo a try.

yup zerotracker is down forever and my torrents are now DHT but appearing as dead in search engines. I'll be having to remake them using another tracker.

Any suggestions? I need a public tracker; was thinking sumo. What I want is a nice "control panel" with updated stats (every 10 - 20 min) so I can keep an eye on my torrents...I especialy like the "downloads" or "completions" column some trackers have since its nice to see which torrents become very popular.

Most importantly it must be reliable. Funny, from what I gathered on Zerotracker's site it went online 4 years ago but within 2 weeks of me joining (and just enough wasted time of posting torrents) it goes offline, apparently forever.

Another request for some current stable, public trackers that have a statistics system in place via webpage so I can monitor seeds/peers & completions in real time.

h33t tracker was perfect for this but they went offline today. I'm sure it will be back up but I have a gut feeling it's down for good.

Any suggestions appreciated!
