I can't access my favourite torrent site - what's happening?

Postby SlyckScratch » Sun Jan 29, 2006 6:29 pm

Welcome to the torrent site status enquiry thread. In future, all enquiries about broken torrent sites/trackers should be directed to this thread.

Examples:
I haven't been able to access TorrentSpy - anyone else having problems?

Is anyone else getting an error message when accessing The Pirate Bay?


If a site is down for a newsworthy reason, you may post a new thread on the subject as long you include the reason in the title.
I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking, 'Did he use six superfluous adjectives or only five?' To tell the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement - but as I deal in English, the most powerful language in the world with subtle nuances that may blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' Well do you punk?

Went down on monday, and their irc server (on same host?) went down at the same time, and now the dns entry for their domain has been deleted (says unknown host)?

aaahhhh! sorry.


still, maybe we should kindly request that all users please state the name of the site that is concerning them in the post, as subject lines within the thread are easily missed :?

Working fine here, although I wouldn't know about the tracker since I haven't downloaded a damn thing since I signed up. There's no reason to believe the tracker isn't working though.

Hmm, I don't know what to tell you. I checked their homepage for a status message or whatever and they didn't have one. Try using a proxy or try clearing your cache. It may or may not help.

i went to the chat room and they said the site was down, and they didn't know when it was going to be back up. I don't know how some people are still able to get to the site :?:

EDIT: thnx for link LaX

Well, that's odd since I just cleared my catch and was able to access it fine. Anyways, it's probably just maitenence or a little setback. It shouldn't be anything to get overhyped about. :)

ok I still can't get access to bitmetv.org so I'm getting a little concerned when you guys say you have no problems. If the site is indeed down....except for you guys who seem to defy it and can still log in...I hope it's fixed soon. :evil:

Cool CG thanks for the hardwork. Any idea where the time warp came from?

An emergency DNS Update was done and should have worked itself out by now for most people.

By the way man, just settle down. It's valentines day, get something for your girl, drink a beer, watch tv, anything. Even if BitMeTV was down for good (which it's NOT) it wouldn't be the end of the world. :P
