Seems to be they seized What according to the 1st info spreading, I can only hope they have their stuff in order to deal with these things, otherwise another damn fine tracker will be lost, and the owner will face some serious charges.  sad

That French page is quite reliable, and What is down as well as their IRC and tracker.

Re: What :(

I just read up on it, It seems they were able to get rid of the personal data on the site and there urging everybody to get rid of there torrents, So at least nobody's looking at a law suite (Doubtful they were going to come after anybody but huge uploaders anyway) but yeah I'd say the wait for them to come back is going to be a long one. suppose i'm glad i never started an account there to being with.

Data is destroyed, not seized, but yes ditching the torrents would be adviced.

Other sites suffering from this mess too: GGn, Deli.sh, PTP partially. And some throwing in the towel like Kray, or ScienceHD before, or even busted like BCG.

Torrenting seems to be hunted lately, hope you guys have taken some precaution.  wink

Re: What :(

Demonoid is my only torrent site that I habitually use so when that goes down, It will be a very sad day. Since Kickass got taken down, a lot of people have seemed to try and migrate over there. Torrent Leech cancelled my account since I didn't have much of a ratio, which is fine since i barely used it at all.

As for music, aside from this place, I've been getting it from youtube via convert extension in my firefox. It takes longer than downloading, but I feel safer when it comes to music. I don't really download movies anymore but rather old tv shows that nobody should really give a shit about. I think the last "modern" shows i downloaded was Lucifer season 1 and Ash vs Evil Dead season 1.

cool, althought theres loads of conflicting rumours, personally, this is my view, that i posted on PT

i dont "get" this seized by french police, my understanding of police raids (ive been involved in one tongue), they dont generally announce they are coming, they turn up suddenly with battering rams and dogs, you dont have time to do anything, let alone delete user databases and upload goodbye pages? Oo
Maybe its different for anti piracy stuff? but then they dont want evidence being zerowiped?

Re: What :(

Afaik they had signs upfront of things happening, and were offline before the seizing. Anyway, doesn't really matter exept for the owner, small users are never targets, where to find stuff is something else with Waffles down too and Kray closing...

as i said how do they get signs beforehand, in drugs raids they dont, banging on the door at say 3 am is the first you know, as 30 officers storm in. they dont wanna tip off people who destroy the evidence.
BUT if the proxy server seizure which lead to the main server and gave the admin team time to delete user infos etc is true then that makes sense

Re: What :(

I'd honestly be really shocked if they went after the users. They are busy trying to go after the big fish.

what's happening to kray? they're still up at the moment.

i admit i mostly abandoned a few sites when i joined what. but kray seems the best as far as copying/sharing what's design. i mostly got punk stuff from what so i'd be happy to transfer my efforts to kray. the problem is getting everyone else on board too.

kray is/was? always a site kinda like this and PT but more into the finer points of sound quality, kinda like what.cd and OiNK before it.

The current owner has things irl to handle, so he's looking for someone to take over the site within a few weeks, otherwise it will shutdown too.
