After 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.
