[BT] Demonoid is gone, now what?

I've gotta admit, i'm kind of sheltered when it comes to BT. Most of my stuff gets pulled down from Usenet, though from time to time I need specific things that usually only show up on BT. With Demonoid being gone, where are users flocking to as an alternative?

I used to have a what.cd account which I couldn't keep my ratio up on. No matter how much stuff I shared, I couldn't get people to download from me. On Demonoid, I had a 1.59 share ratio.

If anybody has invites the would like to share as well, it'll be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

TBH I don't use torrents very often...some alternatives that have been mentioned:

kat.ph - has absorbed a lot of demonoid refugees.
torrentz.eu - for meta-searches something like BTJunkie used to be.
Various private trackers seem to be favored by the members here.

Check reddit.com/r/trackers for some more recommendations.

I moved to torrent-damage. I may go back to the pirate bay before too long. Have also been considering usenet as well.

demonoid was garbage anyway.

What.cd only works well when you upload your own lossless or lossy encodes.

Maybe try waffles.fm? Its a bit easier to get a ratio.

As far as movie trackers ...there are a few really good ones and the rest are shit... ftn and hdb are probably the best.. and no you can't have an invite because they require really fast upload connections or seedboxes to keep up with ratios.

Maybe try torrentleech? nearly anyone can join .. spend the 20 bucks to become a premium member.

Wellllll, garbage to you maybe, but it was a great combination of quality files and selection across the board, plus an outstanding user community posting reviews and help on every torrent.

I've joined superseeds.org. They seedbox the latest and greatest torrents, so you get them in lightning time, plus they regularly offer a big sale on an unlimited lifetime ratio account. And they have a very friendly chatroom at the center of it all.

BTDigg has yielded some good results for me on an experimental basis. They have (apparently) a fake rating system, in place.

Unfortunately, many D/L's are RAR and Zip, which I'm not comfortable with.

Looks like Demonoid is on it's way back. The tracker is back online, although the site itself isn't back up yet.

I just tested this myself with a Demonoid torrent; »inferno.demonoid.me:3390/announce is indeed online!
