I'm pretty excited... are you?
In all honesty this could turn out to be another 5k member IHOP.
They claim the code is based on OiNK. So if the design is there and the features are just as good I'll totally make it my home.
Waffles.fm is a new torrent tracker, based off of OiNK's Pink Palace. The tracker will be 100% private, unlike newer alternatives. Registration will be invite-only from day one.
Why? An open tracker or one without ratio requirements has less selection, less quality (e.g. flac), and less community. There are torrents on The Pirate Bay that have been snatches upwards of ten thousand times, with only a couple of people seeding
This was never the case with OiNK, may it rest in peace, and it will not be the case with waffles.fm. It's going to be a bit slow at first, but we're aiming to be the community that OiNK's Pink Palace was, with the same selection of high quality music.
Important notes on the opening:
We're opening on Wednesday, October 31st (Halloween) at midnight GMT. You will need an invite to get in. All members will receive a surplus of invites during the beginning of the website.
You are highly encouraged and will be rewarded for inviting as many ex-oinker's as you know of as well as uploading your entire oink torrents collection. There will be special competitions during the beginning to make this process even more rewarding - although the greatest is available to everyone: having the best damn music tracker on the net back!

After reading the intro I'm pretty psyched. The tone is friendly and forward. I'm just getting great vibes from it already. It could be false hopes, like the time I found my moms vibrator before Christmas. I told my friends I was going to get a cool light saber for a week straight. Instead I had to go to the dentist to fix my chipped teeth.
