Demonoid Welcomes BitTerrorist Hordes Back Into Its Adorably Decorated Fold

Apr 18th, 2008 // 4 Comments

demonoid.JPGAfter quietly bringing its tracker back online in February, dormant BitTorrent tracker Demonoid appears to be back in business: A tipster forwarded along an automated e-mail he received from the site today: “We are pleased to inform you that Demonoid.com is finally back online… Your account is back and ready to be used again. If you have
problems accessing it, please use the forgotten password page.” And going to the site reveals that there’s been a change in adminship:

A few months ago, the site administrator (known as Deimos), lacked the time necessary to maintain this website. And for personal reasons, Deimos decided to resign his position as a member of the site staff.

Before leaving, Deimos picked a new site administrator from among his friends. The old moderator team remained unchanged and will continue helping with the site. The Demoniod team will try to keep everything running just as it always has been.

The trackers and website seem to be working properly, and should any issues arise, they will be taken care of as soon as possible. If we work on any problems over the next few days, the site might be going on and offline. We apologize in advance if this should happen.

“Personal issues” being code for “getting really sick and tired of fielding e-mails from the Canadian Recording Industry Association,” obviously.

    This headline was like reading Cyrillic for me. I have no idea what this means.

    @Lucas Jensen: Basically, people who like to pretend that their piracy is different than Limewire because they’re in an exclusive “club” have regained one of their options.

  3. jopari actually likes the G1, thank you very much.

    @Halfwit: Nope, that’s not it. The reason why so many people love Demonoid is because it’s a fairly open ratio-based torrent site: you know that what you download is gonna be fairly well seeded because people have to keep up their ratios, but it’s a lot less exclusive than, say, what.cd.

    @jopari: Ninja edit:

    Basically, people who like to pretend that their piracy is different than Limewire because their piracy is more efficient and fairly distributed have regained one of their options.
