    I believe the rumours to be false for the following reasons:-
    1) I'm a member of the site (and have been for a few years now)

    2) The site has been hacked a couple of times that I know of

    3) Demios would (I hope) have contacted all members if there was a problem with the site being taken down. He hasn't so there isn't.

    I see it as a sever problem, as to everyone else..................................................................................

    Thanks for that link. It's by far the best and most believable report I've heard in days. The whole CRIA thing was just silly from the get go, and as much as I love demonoid, its one failing is occasional problems. It will be back, and if it takes longer than it would for mininova or a few other sites... well... you have to wait for the best sometimes. Thanks Ripdox.

    I don't know how you're gonna be able to seed cause the Demonoid tracker went down when the site did....

    I just checked a torrent I put up a few days ago and I got a "connection refused........." from the tracker and my arrow went red in ĀµTorrent

    OK.. here we go..

    Official word from the irc channel..

    A drive on the server went down and they are working to restore everything.
    They think 3 days or so before normal service is resumed. On that reckoning then they will be back on 29/30 - 9

    Yeah.. it's looking good. I'm a long time member and have donated time and cash before. Nobody has come begging to me for cash to move any servers or whatever. I wouldn't respond if they did. It's easy to spoof a site to a domain where the server is down. Unfortunately that screenshot above is too small to show the actual url in the address bar.. :s

    Don't give anybody any money until they are back online and it's business as usual. Anything else is probably just a con.

    I'm glad I finally found a board thats talking about this, every other search result for "demonoid down" was old. I thought it was verison wireless trying to *bleep* with its users, so i guess thats not the case. Hope its back soon. I hate just about every other torrent site.

    Blackcats seems to have been having technical problems for several days, so I'm inclined to think that it's overhauling its drives. No idea about TVTorrents.

    Blackcats is up now. There is a message on their board that says the site was down for about 5 hours for maintenance.
