Stifles rumors that it plans to shut down the site or create a new one as it works to rewrite code for those parts of the site that were deleted during recent hardware “problem.”
It’s been a little over two months now that BitTorrent tracker site Demonoid went offline after suffering from hardware issues that resulted in some unspecified data loss.
Now the site’s HP has been updated with a message seeking to calm visitors worried the site may be gone for good this time.
“There are some rumors about the site shutting down for good and we starting a new tracker next year,” it reads. “The rumors are of course, lies. There are no plans of shutting down or creating another site.”
It says the reason for the closure is a “problem that caused data loss” and that people are currently rewriting the code for those parts of the site that suffered.
“We are also working to try and minimize the data loss as much as possible,” it adds.
Hopefully we’ll see it up and running again soon enough. The tracker site is sorely missed by the BitTorrent community.
