Well if you use torrents then you know who Demonoid is. They are one of the largest bit-torrent tracker sites and they are based out of the Ukraine. Well they have been experiencing some power outages that have caused some "sever" server issues and data loss.


Demonoid Warns Of Severe Torrent and User Data Loss

“We are experiencing power outages that have caused some ram and hard drive issues,” site staff sad in a statement. “We might have to shut down everything to fix and prevent further damage,” they added, while warning that the site could disappear for days while the site’s power circuit received maintenance.

Since we receive questions daily from worried users on the situation at Demonoid, an update seems in order. Unfortunately, at this stage it doesn’t seem like good news.

Although staff at the site say they hope Demonoid will return as soon as possible, they have confirmed that the hardware issues have caused severe data loss. This problem is compounded by the fact that the person who can get the data back is unavailable to assist at the moment.

“A loss of a some months worth of activity including registered users and torrent submissions is to be expected because the backup we are hoping to get back is not up to date, so please be prepared for it,” Demonoid staff said in a statement.

Re: Demonoid is Down And With Huge Data Loss

I know. Demonoid at one time was my favorite torrent site but once they started opening up registration to anyone (not requiring a invite) then it lost its shine. I'm more into the private torrent sites. I do like it as a fall back site when I cant get it on my main torrent site. Sad

Did they stop doing that? Seems like the last time I looked, not too long ago, it was still invitation only, but don't quote me on it.

I tend to use scrapetorrent most of the time these days anyway.

Re: Demonoid is Down And With Huge Data Loss

Well its invite only 75% time but a few days a month they open it up to open registration - not good in my opinion. I was invited in. I like the privacy of private torrents. The one I use I can't say they have a very strict policy on no posting their name in public but anyone looking to get in on a great torrent PM me and we can talk (I have like 10 invites).

Re: Demonoid is Down And With Huge Data Loss

I like private torrent sites too for certain things, but from the one's I've been on, they also seem to not have as broad of a range of things to offer.

Re: Demonoid is Down And With Huge Data Loss

yeah I find that too. The one I'm on has all the new stuff but some of the old goodies they don't. They do have a area you can request it and I'll be darn generally with in 24-48 hrs they get it. I did like demonoid for a fast back up. Sad
