By the way, when I try to search a title in a specific type of media (audio books, HD-TV shows, E-books, etc.) it seems to be broken. The search category automatically switches to "ALL" and returns "No Hits." If I search the same title without selecting a specific category then I get many hits - often too many. Can you please check it out?
good job but on verified uploaders or on vip green skull it should be no report buttons to avoid abuses or should be checked more carefull by admins to avoid good stuff to be removed by fake boot votes/proxies/users, great achievement anyway
I noticed the red "report" button exists only for torrents WITHOUT a skull. (Torrents with a skull are trusted and do not have the button. This must be the "abuse protection".)
A red "report" button should also NOT exist for any torrent before 2015. TPB had mods back then to filter out the bad torrents. Why give fileshare haters a chance to disgrace perfectly good older torrents!?
Only NEW torrents (without a skull) ought to have this report button. And we also need a green report link so we can say a torrent is good.
I hope these report buttons are only temporary. They are NOT a substitution for admin/moderators.
What about all the fakes NOT deleted?
What about the fakes veriofed as good by Fakescan?
Use the money you make on ads and popups to buy an army of monkeys who would be better at getting rid of fakes instead of tricking people that you do a good job just to earn some quick cash.
Looking at video/movies is a sad sight, 25 pages with mostly fakes
Most likely the same is true for the other sections too.
And way too many fakes are verified for it to be trusted to verify if an apple is an apple or orange.
as traxxox said.. can't report accounts with a skull.. found that out when I wanted to report this asswipe who unpacked my torrent and reuploaded it (probably not the first time he did that).. and idiots like that get a "trusted" skull?!
Also.. if I find an account exclusively uploading fakes.. do I have to report every single upload..? or would that trigger some protection stuff or something?! the former would be a massive painus in the anus..
also this reporting system opens the doors for abuse.. I'm willing to bet there will be tons of uploaders getting frustrated because their legit torrents were nuked because some asswipe/troll (or uploading-competitor?) flagged them..
(which is why I personally won't be uploading any new torrents here until something changes about how the flagging/moderating stuff is done)
quoting anoXmous: shitty system.
this REALLY doesn't substitute mods in a satisfactory way, but at least the site is back.. kind of..
@sumknt and anyone else getting the codec download from movies: It's a trojan and the "movie" wont play.
It's all a way to infect your computer and earn them money.
Stay away from .wmv videos, if it smells shit it's usually shit.
As the fakes aren't removed people have to get smarter downloading.
"Is anyone else having problems posting stuff? I put all the info and when I press the "add to index" button it clears out the page and reloads a blank upload torrent page :("
Yes, I have the exact same problem. I can not upload either. I fill out the form correctly and then I get just get a new blank form. (Yes, I added the torrent from my HD at the beginning of the form and added the CAPCHA at the end of it.) TPB must fix this problem! This is yet another reason why we need admins or mods. I want to see the suprbay.org open again too. A fileshare site MUST have a good human communication system or it will not work well!
Mods versus no mods... TBP is back!! I couldn't give two squirts less if there are a few fake torrents.
I'd say most of the issues are getting trusted uploaders back, NOT worrying about the spammers.
I agree with toots2boots and traxxox, fixing the uploading portion is also important.
I won't whine about the worlds most resiliant torrent sharing site being back online... because it's FUCKING BACK ONLINE! I went a through 8 weeks of withdrawls of my favorite shows, movies, .apk's, programs, and even reading the comments left by uploaders after getting my own copy of TBP'S XML.
I certainly hope proper steps are in place if we, as a community, were to get hit again by proverbial cannon's?
YAAAA'RRRRRR.... We shall never give in to those keeping us from knowledge!!!
^^ yes, I'm reporting Anonymous torrents (VIP don't even have report button) that say "BRRIP 2015, 2014" some are .wmv, some .rar, some are .wmv renamed to .avi, and .txt files say you need to download codecs from a strange webpage, some others are all the same size and descriptions are the same, this is plain ridiculous
Don't you realize? I'm happy because TPB is come back, but I'm in same time sad because it come back without soul.
Soul of TBP was a team who was working behind the scenes.
All those peoples, and their work - that was the soul of TPB, not one smart-ass who decided to betray his colleagues and run the site alone. Whatever you do, whatever abuse system you develop, even perfect one, this site will never be same without it's old team.
I realize that this message will probably get removed, and my account as well, but what pleasure is to be member of soulless site - or even worse - website with rotted soul?
There are now more fake torrents UP'd by anonymous than real torents. There are also fakes being posted by a lot of others.
There are too many to report. The system is broken, and Kickass Torrents is blocked where I live.
What Happened? right up until the cops took down PB there were CAMS, screeners, and new stuff every day??? then PB goes down and the whole supply of these movies seem to go away? I'm no genius at this I just would go to PB every chance I had and download and seed. now where are all these new CAMS, screeners ???? the whole thing dried up. even the fakes are all just the same old crap??? did they win, are the torrent sites pulling all the good stuff so they don't get raided. does anyone see what I'm saying?
The REAL sad thing is that ALL that PHUK'n buildup. All that cool 'We're coming back' $hit. And for what...?
Seriously, and I totally mean this... This has got to be THE sorriest most anti-climactic, [email protected] (yes, it DOES have to be said again) thing I've ever seen.
Just doesn't make sense. Why all the build up? Why all the effort? All I can surmise is that the very last minute decision to jettison all the TRULY creative people behind this site must have resulted in...
No sense at all...
Goodbye TPB. I am truly heartbroken and sad to see you like this. It's like a girl you used to love that went missing. And then you miraculously find her... and she has been lobotomized...
Good to have you guys back....
While you guys were down I founded http://revealed.xyz it promotes freedom of speech and privacy, much love thedeathroller :D been using the pirate bay since 2008 and been a pirate every since arrrr ;)
give them some time they will fix it. I bet most of this spam is from the old mod's anyway, and if it is shame on you. it's back and anything can be fixed, they are taking adds so they have to be accountable give it a month or so?
As I said in my post before, this site is soulless without it's old team in background.
One guy, can't handle big site as TPB is, and his idea that he can is just ridiculous.
And I bet that now everyone know that I'm right - site is falling apart even before it got full reborn.
Rise like a Phoenix - who the f*k you are lying to?
It seems that TPB will be dying Phoenix in no time, and there will be no next chance. (not without old team)
What I noticed so far:
- Massive amounts of fake torrents which is counting up ridiculously fast
- Massive amount of good torrents missing. Many people abuse report fake button, and there is extremely bad anti-abuse system behind the scene (if any)
- Search is broken last days, it can't find great amount of (still) exists torrents
- There is more ads than ever
- Many functions are still not operational
- Torrent upload system is not working so well
There was a lot of time passed since TPB was raided, and the guy has a plen
...There was a lot of time passed since TPB was raided, and the guy has a plenty of time to fix things up, but it seems that he is in lack of technical knowledge. At least, employ someone(temporary) to fix things up if you can't do it yourself.
The way TPB is going now, is way point of no return. Do something before it's to late.
i found a major bug today...........i was searching for Earth 2 under the category of Comics and when i goto the bottom of the page and click for the next page it automatically redoes the entire search for Earth 2 but in the "All" category
would be nice to make a script that will automatically remove a torrent uploaded by a non verified or vip user and that gathers more than 10 report points, also torrent to be removed from database hashremoved and user that uploaded this torrent to be automatically banned if it's registered early than 7 days ago, if it's legit and reported by abuse then he can make a new account and upload again that torrent
we need more power to the users i have faith in this tpb community operating ideea, will save so much time of admins and we don't need again abusive moderation team, thanks
also for a great ideea will be that users registered early than 7 days ago can't post links in comments and to be implemented a comment report button similar to above ideea if that user nonverified who commented it's registered earlier than 7 days and he made a comment he must wait 30 minutes to make another one and his comments can be voted by other users to be removed-more that 10 report points
ps: also a verified uploader requesting application would be nice, tpb can be operated just by it's users this is my dream, thanks for reading
Autobanning based on a number of reports will be a welcome feature to MPAA/RIAA and any other copyright organisation as that will make it possible for them to take down all contents by non skulled users.
But maybe adding moderation of the report queue to the skulled users is a good idea?
Anonymouse autobanning based on a number of reports on users that are registered less than 7 days it's not a bad ideea 99% of fakes are posted by new registered users, also if that user is older than 7 days reports should go to admins/moderation, if will be abuses on a torrent hashtorrent will be removed and that person can register a new user upload same content/torrent, banip should be on users that make mistakes 2-3 times and will be considered spammer/troll/etc
ZERO of the fakes uploaded after tpb got back up is made by users less than 7 days old and with ZERO moderation now that means they aren't banned and keep on infecting users way beyond the time it would take to get the required reports.
Can't see why it's such a good idea to allow a graceperiod for fakers to calmly spread shit.
There are spam comments/with links to malware and virus appearing I cant get rid of them. That's bad.
So bad that I will have to quit uploading here.
My reputation dictates that I must not be associated with spam and other bad links to malware and virus.
I earned my trusted rank and I will not risk losing it.
Let the trusted and the VIP's at least Mod our own pages and the comments for our pages. Or regretfully I must sever my ties to this site.

The spam has been removed from my comments page, thank you for the deletion. So now that I see progress I will once again resume uploading to this site. I do hope that there are some resolves coming for the other fakes and malware that has appeared. A reputable site has more than just trusted and VIP uploaders if the people are upset discontent will spread and that as well is bad. So once again thank you for the moderation and please consider some sort of resolve for the other members. None of us came here with our skulls we earned them here. I am sure that there are others who would give much to have a chance to earn.

Is there any way that I can become a mod? I dont know anthing about cracking games but I want to help pirate bay by removing spams. I would love to do that for free. You can trust me but If you dont I wont be mad.Have a good day. Sorry for posting this here but I couldnt find anywhere.
This is a bit ridiculous. The amount of fakes is bad. Just reported about 120 of them, (half of them with no less that 500 peers), ALL uploded in the last 4 hours. I could probably keep on doing that all night, However, I'm no mod, no part of the team and have no vetted interest in TPB. Users should NOT have to do for free the work of mods. The FakeScan bots are totally useless. Keep on another month like that and TPB will have completely lost its hard earned reputation.
At the moment, TPB is, if not dead, agonizing, dying the slow death of those thousands pokes by fake bots that will finally leave it devoid of substance.
There is still time, there is still hope, there is still a devoted user base.. But for how long ?
In other words : WAKE UP AND GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, because we're gonna flee elsewhere if you don't. (and we're already elsewhere in fact, only nostalgia holds us a little bit longer here, but that will not last).
Hello I am analogkid6103,and I am concerned about your site,There are problems stacking up.The morale is being drained away and the enemy is also ,this is a public site after all. I don't know what your intentions are but If you want this site to continue you need some good help ,I am not stating for the former crew I never even met them I came everyday and did my work and left. But that will become impossible in a very short time. I do not know what your specialty is but I do know what it isn't you have never worked an active torrent site. And if you had I would not be standing here telling you: That its going down, and you don't recognize it. Im not trying to insult you or belittle you I am simply stating a fact just as I have each time I have stood here. I would like to save this It depresses me to watch the Icon of our p2p thing being eaten up from within and without. I was never anything more than an uploader. And that was the only thing for me. But being uploader I have learned much about these sites
Files on UFO'S are not here. Files on UFO go to may24,2014. Hope their will be new files soon this is my main reason for using pirate bay that and NFL NCAA. Wish this site the best. Those who are trying to shut you down can go to hell.
There when you browse the HD movies from recently posted on, you go through a GOOD 8 pages of films for the last 24 hours.
You USED to be able to do that here.
MY conclusion... I just joined Suprbay; the link is above. Now THERE is where all the REAL people, the MODS, & ADMINS are that ran TPB. They state there that they are getting ready to do something 'WONDERFUL'
Mind if you have this bastard taken down as well? User claims to be having a bunch of "DVDrip" screeners, which turn out to be nothing more than faked WMVs and a readme telling users to download a purported codec: http://thepiratebay.se/user/Youn33/
