id just like to find another torrent site i trust. ive joined a few since demonoid went down and theyre all screwy. demonoid comments for example, i would know whether something was worth the download before starting, other sites, no comments or mixed ones, like this files no good, yes it it, no its not. gimme a break. i want demonoid back but im not getting it. and i just finished downloading a movie from a heavy emphaisis on ratio tracker where the sound is totally out of synch, and no one mentioned it. and of course, being in canada, i get 20 gigs a month and 8 bucks for every one over it. so i hesitate now to download anything

I was gonna mention BitSoup, but it just closed its registration again :-/. ilovetorrents is a pretty good one to check out.

WoRkZ: i had never even heard of it before your post. not that that means anything, but i'm curious: WHICH people are saying it's the next demonoid? fanboy spammers? or are there others saying it too?

Well sir when it reaches the front page of several private forums/ tbdev sites I use I perhaps thought that I would share it with the community, many of whom are looking for alternatives to demonoid. The site has been created in the mould of Demonoid (see features below), and while it might not be big/ or well known at the moment, it is the community of slyck that can turn it into the next big thing...

Here is a post from another forum about the site.. please note i am nothing to do with fr33dom itself so don't think I am spamming

"This is a general announcement and should not be taken as an endorsement of the site except in the most general way.

fr333dom.com is a new start up "public" tracker created in the mold of demonoid in more than just an aesthetic sense.


The concept is simple:

* No restrictions on the content that can be uploaded the only exception being porn (plenty of sites for that).
* Upload is restricted to those who apply for it (requires you to be a member).
* Download is completely unrestricted you do not have to be logged in to download the torrents and even if you are logged in the ratio is counted but does not mean anything in regards to banning etc (remind you of another site yet?)
* The torrent file that uploaders use for upload to the site can be used on mininova/isohunt/sumotorrents for release and will work as well as a torrent file downloaded from fr333dom.com itself.
* There is no requirement for a special txt file to be uploaded with the files (probably the largest notable exception).
* There are no guarantees for speed on the site as it is a recent start up however some files will be backed by one or more seeding servers.

As far as the idea behind the site it was developed with the hydra in mind and while certainly nowhere even close to being in competition with demonoid ('s ghost perhaps) the idea is the same.

So the proposal is this, with the recent take down of demonoid and oink, and the increased pressure upon the public tracker sources that are used here at xx, fr333dom.com gives another option in the public tracker market. Do not necessarily use it as a your primary tracker or if you do also make sure that you also distribute the torrents to other public trackers (and vice versa) so if they get taken down there is still a connection for peers somewhere.

Any questions can be answered on the site itself, xx is the first site that fr333dom.com is being offered to mostly because some of the staff are members here. We fully expect fr333dom to fill a place in the public tracker arena and am very happy to finally be able to open it up."

:lol:

i am not saying that you are involved with that site - however, i WILL say that nearly all spammers deny any such involvement :roll:

and the last paragraph you pasted says it all. the unnamed source you cite freely states that many of the staff of the site you are promoting are at their site as well.

so apparently, the only people saying they're the next big thing are... well, i leave that to the reader to judge :)

Spammers in my experience usually consist of those with very few posts that have signed up very recently. Another main give away is the poor English, go to Zeropaid and browse around the forums. I am sure you can grasp what I am talking about.

i understand what you're saying, jay. however, some spammers have good language skills, and fanboys are everywhere too. i am not trying to diss this site - but i am not going to jump on the bandwagon based on what i've read so far ;)

I'm not saying fr333dom isn't 'the one' but there is quite a queue of demonoid replacements, many with a 'green' theme, some even with the demonoid devil logo. Demonoid, nor its potential replacements are built 'just like that', it takes time. Lots and lots of time. And (fre333dom) a good host that doesn't throw you out with 7 days notice or give your details to the anti-pirates...... :tinfoilhat:

We had information that suggested that Demonoid would be back but everything has gone quite quiet. Not that it won't return, but as every day goes by its community disperses further. Deimos says that costs are an issue but hasn't asked for any support with funds and at the same time he says he's busy with his 'real' life. To me, this issue is more of a threat to Demonoid's return than anything else.

Let's see - it could return tommorow :pirate:

Fair enough, I don't care either way. I just gave my opinion to the original poster who was asking advice. Though, I don't like people jumping the gun on others. I know you didn't say that to me, but it somewhat felt indirectly.

Lets leave it at that anyway :toast:

So, I am a spammer, a fan boy... with bad language skills... (not that you need to "jump the gun" or anything) for offering advice, my 10 cents, to the community that has given me so much help over the years..

Perhaps the response I got is the reason I am a reader more than a poster

i just joined at fr333dom and they have no restrictions, are planning to grow, more space, faster, looking good. they have movies there and seem like very nice people. no banning based on ratio, they just ask you to seed to be a good sharer. like demonoid. ilovetorrents has very strict ratio rules, and ive joined and found that the only way to get a decent ratio was to download things i didnt want that were in initial seeding, and i dont have the bandwidth allowance for that. i like aradi a lot and im finding it easy to fulfill my ratio there

if you had expressed your own personal opinion, WoRkZ, this convo wouldn't have taken place. but you professed to speak for mysterious others. i asked who those others were, and i got an unattributed quote from an unidentified source. i didn't say you were a spammer or a fanboy - but i certainly consider the possibility. is that so surprising?

and no one said you had bad language skills - in fact, it seemed to me that jay-jay was saying the opposite. relax, and i apologize if i offended you. but something to consider in the future - if you're going to speak for others, it's always more convincing if you identify them :)

First of all I said "usually" and also why do you think I assumed you have bad language skills? which you clearly do not. Also I stated that have signed up very recently. This clearly discounts you from what I was talking about.

Yes, perhaps I saw red for a second, and can understand that, as Slyck regulars, you two must experience posts like this every day, and this one certainly borders on what could be considered as a form of spam.

I just did not want to be misunderstood and was only trying to help, many users are searching for a Demonoid alternatives (perfect example being this thread), and I thought I could try and point a finger in the right direction

/me goes back into lurk mode :howdy:

you bring up an excellent point, workz. it's sad that spammers can so easily create an atmosphere of mistrust :(

again, i apologize :)

I've had a look round the site and it does seem to be a friendly ok place. There's a long long way to go before it could become the size or quality of Demonoid, but it looks like the p2p hydra has grown another head and that's good news in my book :pirate:

So as to speak from the horses mouth as it were, let me just say that we are NOT the next demonoid. We are attempting to follow in their model only (though of course there are major differences I am sure) the world needs as many public torrents sites as it can get in accordance with the Hydra concept, this is just one head. As stated in the introduction to the site, we do not advocate the use of fr333dom as the only tracker that people use to release their torrents on, we allow external torrents and also encourage people to upload torrents with multiple public trackers listed so as to reduce the impact of the loss of one site (as we saw with demonoid).

Unfortunately I made the poor decision to use a prebuilt demonoid looking theme on the initial site (though with my own wholly created logo) and this apparently raised the ire of at least one "distinguished" member of demonoids IRC channel (an op or half-op) who decided he would get his retribution by registering the IRC channel #fr333dom on irc.p2p-network.net so that I couldn't use it, sad really and in the end futile as the IRCops are on my side and the matter should be resolved shortly. In the mean time please come and join us at http://fr333dom.com and the IRC channel of the same name #fr333dom.com on the above network.

I promise we don't bite.
