Finally one of the leading BitTorrent website of its times is rising from the ashes. Demonoid one of the leading private BitTorrent trackers was pulled down by CRIA in November last year. Deimos the admin of Demonoid has finally handed over the reins of Demonoid to a fellow admin whom he apparently trusts with the comeback of Demonoid.
Deimos will not be the admin of Demonoid anymore because he is tied with some personal real life issues. Here’s the message he posted in the Subdemon forums :
It is with great sadness (and not a little relief) that I announce that I will be stepping down as admin of Demonoid, with effect from today.
Demonoid is currently suffering from a number of things, prime amongst these being my distraction with real-world issues, and so I have handed the reins over to a new administrator – a close friend of mine, which I trust completely and has the knowledge and time to take care of the site.
He will, in due course, be making his own announcements about the future of Demonoid. Of course, speculation over the future of the site is fun, but it is ultimately fruitless – you will all, in the near future, become aware of what the future holds. I trust that you will all give your support to the new admin as he finds his feet while he resurrects Demonoid.
Thanks again for your support in making Demonoid what it was and is.
Goodbye and good wishes – it has been a blast!
It surely is great news for the BitTorrent community. I was once upon a time an active user of Demonoid and the quality of torrents over there was simply too good. Demonoid is by far the best when it comes to finding software or weird music/stuff you know you’re not gonna find on IsoHunt or ThePirateBay. Glad to see the demonoid is coming back.
What do you think of this development? Do you think Demonoid can ever be the same again? (I just hope it is!!)
I’m looking forward to Demonoid resurrecting- what a great torrent community
