    Sad to say this, but after a couple hundred refreshes, I have come to the conclusion that another very good bittorent tracker website is now in the past... Good bye demonoid.com

    Demonoid is down. Finally a message was posted. It was due to legal pressures as well as bandwidth cost ect. Not sure what the legal pressure was though

    Yeah I thought the same thing about Demonoid.com, after entering the link IE just took me back to my homepage, mind you it isnt surprising it got shut down. Due to all the illegal content on there. But when a new site is launched I want to visit it.

    oto! =D

    It really sucks what happened to Demonoid. I feel for Deimos and all others involved. I know first hand what it feels like to be caught in the crossfire. (Check out http://www.udgnet.com/)

    Oto, I've decided to try and make a new home at EliteTorrents.org - feel free to join me. ;) Looks to be lots of TorrentBits people there, plus they seem pretty cool. Very different setup however. Will take some getting used to.

    ::EDIT:: Forgot to metion that I'm in touch with willigan through email. He shared this link with me:
    - http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/58231

    Hope all is well. Drop me a line through Udgnet.

    oto, Unfortunately the only "gang" I have is Willigan (whom hasn't responded to email in over a week) and you. :( I didn't have contact information for everyone. I wish Deimos hadn't removed the forums as well, but I realize why he did. Too much information there that could be twisted.

    If you could use the Demonoid.com domain and get some forums back up, that would be AWESOME. Word would get around quickly. Nothing illegal about a friggin forum, but give the RIAA/MPAA time. They will find something about it to sue. >=/

    We didn't reject you oto we just weren't ready for you yet cuz you had been known to spam the demonoid forum and we were just trying to get this new forum started. You'd know that if you've checked your email today.

    Anyway we are ready and braced for your impact just keep it toned down, mmkay? lol

    And GuidoZ I thought willigan got a hold of you? He has been on vacation until lately though. Well anyway pretty much ALL the regulars can be found here (except for you two that is):

    http://chevronthrees.biz/forums/index.php

    I hope you both join us.

    PS - I kind of like hiding behind the front of drag's band. Not that we have anything to hide.

    Yes, Damn shame about Demonoid.com. I too feel a personal loss. It was so easy for me to use. They constantly kept me updated several times a day of new torrents. I use a mac, for me Mactorrents - MKA is also a great site, but Demonoid combined the best of everything and more. I don't want to believe it's all over. there must be a rebirth. I'm having a very difficult time finding trackers of equal caliber.
    Any one??
