Demonoid ratio not updating 2016
In late 2013, the original Demonoid domain names came under the control of an unknown party, who launched a placeholder website promising the return of Demonoid and soliciting Bitcoin donations, and who in early 2014 began operating a tracker servicing the old Demonoid torrents.Demonoid features RSS with different feeds for each of its torrent categories and their sub-categories.Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding." According to the IRC channel, the trackers themselves were not affected.Six days later, the placeholder page was updated with a link to a new forum, unrelated to file sharing, for the community.Additionally, while the website may have been blocked in Canada at the time, the tracker was still readily accepting Canadian IP addresses.The threats are in spite of the open question of the legality of music file sharing in Canada.The main site, however, did not become operational until December 13, 2009.
For personal reasons, Deimos decided to resign his position as a member of the site staff.If we work on any problems over the next few days, the site might be going on and offline. On September 14, 2009, Demonoid's torrent tracker went down after it was reported that they had experienced a number of hardware problems stemming from power outages. A message was posted on the homepage stating that "We might have to shut down everything to fix and prevent further damage," and that it could be "days maybe, until we can change the power circuit." During the downtime that followed, several new messages appeared, mostly providing updates on the repair status and promising that the site would return soon.On November 4, 2009, the tracker, which communicates with a Bit Torrent client, began responding to some torrents, and returned to full operation on November 17.On November 9, 2007, the site again went offline, reportedly due to legal threats to their service provider from the Canadian Recording Industry Association.A placeholder page stated, "The CRIA threatened the company renting the servers to us, and because of this it is not possible to keep the site online.
