    Potential Shutdown

    05:00am (GMT) on Tuesday 25th September 2007.
    It appears that Demonoid has gone down. There were no warnings from any moderators of the site but both the main torrent page and the forum (fora) are no longer accessible. It is still possible to ping the IP address of the site and it locates itself as in Canada, and SSH and SMTP services are still active.

    We already have a thread about demonoid going offline but from what we hear its just a maintenance thing.

    the servers are only down temporarily while tracking software is installed to trace downloaders and what they download.

    The current speculation is hard drive failure considering they stated in IRC that all data changes from the past few days will be gone (Wikipedia says so at least). I'm already pissed, though! Just spent the weekend seeding at full throttle (to the dismay of everyone on the network) to get my ratio up and that's going to be gone :banghead:

    Ok I checked out rapidshare but they limit uploads to 100Mb, so how many pieces would say a 5 gig file be?. and there appears to be no search function someone has to give you the direct URL of the file:wtf:

    That was from earlier this year. They moved to Canada after that incident.

    I really hope they get up and running again. I'll be really bummed to see them go. Hands down my favorite torrent site/tracker.

    I also really miss TorrentIt.

    Just wanted to share the news for those that haven't seen or read about it yet and are wondering what the deal with Demonoid might be.

    They are currently insisting that the recent downtime is due to hardware failure ie. the server hard drive(s) have issues but I believe it may be more than that... :ohwell:

    Aye, I can confirm this as well. Tracker seems to be online once again but the main website is still missing in action.

    Site is responding now. Gives a quick error message.
    Hopefully it'll be up and running again by the end of the week
