First of all let us tell you that we’re posting this info with permission from CN staff – no need to panic. CN, an elusive private tracker known only by a handful people, has just opened recruitment via IRC. This should be excellent news for those who genuinely wanted to get into this promising BitTorrent site. You no longer need to hunt for invites – all you need to do is to prove that you are a good torrenter during the interview. Note that CN has tough rules regarding publicity. You won’t find any detailed site info or screenshots in this post (as opposed to our usual reviews) - we will only make the interview channel details public. Just know that it is a specialized movie tracker that is composed of very active members.

Following news item is quoted from the site homepage:

2009-09-10 12:33:36 - We are expanding ... Ok everyone we are expanding the site and we have decided to get more people in here. We have now interview channel on IRC, Feel free to let people know about it, if they want to join us. We will interview them and decide to invite them or not. Remember never break our code of silence. Don't post our full url, or any info other than interview channel outside. Server Address : cosanostra.killr.org Channel : #CN.interview Reminder : New users who are invited from the channel must show their activity in any field they prefer in the site, otherwise they will be disabled ... we don't need account-collectors.

It’s the last part of the above announcement that potential new members should care about. If you are thinking of ‘collecting’ this tracker, don’t even bother with the interview. Traders, cheaters, collectors and other scammers are of course not welcome and will not survive on CN for long – all new members will be monitored by staff.

Coming back to the interview, you will be required to give profile links from several trackers you are already a member of. Bottom line is that you’ll need to prove that you can be an active user on CN (Buffered accounts with many TB's upload and almost no download will not count as proof of activity). Also we have been informed by CN staff that all interviewees will be required to speak properly in English (as interviews will be conducted in this language).

Invite Channel Details are as follows:

Details removed - This offer has now concluded.

    We don’t know till when this channel will remain open.

    Important: When you join the interview channel, please wait for tracker staff to contact you. Do not spam the channel or PM anyone (do any of it and you will be kicked out of the channel). It might take long since there will definitely be a queue. Wait patiently - once it’s your turn you will be notified. We And if you do manage to get in, please read the Rules and FAQ first – CN has some tight regulations compared to other sites, specially when it comes to publicity. They also have a lot of interesting site features that are uncommon.

    If you are commenting to this article, please do not post full tracker URL and do not ask what CN means – any comment that violates tracker rules will be deleted. In the past, we have seen folks trash trackers just because could not get in. Do not be drama queens – staff run the tracker and they have the right to decide who joins. If you couldn’t get in, move on to another site – there are plenty of them.

      If user limit reached, wait patiently till queue is cleared. Don't hammer their server - check back later.

      I just tried the IRC channel and received a message that the interview channel is full but will be sure to try back later. Thanks for the info!

      looks like lot of rush. Getting channel full errror

    7. gre // 9/13/2009 05:42:00 PM  

      Trackers interviews are pointless. It's easier to distribute a couple of invites and check out later the new users participation. That's what they are gonna do anyway, with interview or not. Just bureaucracy.
      Secret tracker? Yup. I see. A tracker will never survive without people, they realized it and now they're having interviews. Seeders and even leechers all make up an integral part of the ecosystem of a torrent site. I'm sure in a little while they'll open to sign up. Plus, it's no use imposing "user participation", the best way to do that is with a interesting site, that's all.

    8. zoomby // 9/13/2009 05:45:00 PM  

      @gre : lol. Dey have been rocking from more den a year

    9. max // 9/13/2009 06:55:00 PM  

      gre: If you are trying to say that CN is inactive tracker and _needs_ more members... Oh how wrong you are :D

    10. wairi // 9/13/2009 07:04:00 PM  

      invitenation down ?

    11. zoomby // 9/13/2009 09:14:00 PM  

      trying since 12 hrs. Still getting same error :(

    12. Donny // 9/13/2009 10:04:00 PM  

      another site with the same content elsewhere. If I want to interview for something it will be a lot more important then a torrent site.

    13. Kenneth // 9/13/2009 11:57:00 PM  

      IRC channel is now invite only!

    14. Kenneth // 9/14/2009 12:01:00 AM  

      How do you get invited to the IRC channel?

    15. TEAM FILEnetworks // 9/14/2009 12:12:00 AM  

      @Kenneth,
      There is no way to get invited unless they open it again.

    16. King // 9/14/2009 11:38:00 AM  

      Shit tracker mostly inactive(I was a member earlier) ... so they r expanding .... wait for few months they will close down due to lack of donations(that's why all new secret shit trackers are coming up)

    17. gre // 9/14/2009 09:36:00 PM  

      @king,
      as expected. "We are expanding" always means "we have a problem here...".

    18. hypnotoad // 9/14/2009 09:53:00 PM  

      The IRC channel was invite only during a period of time we could not provide interviews.

      The insinuation that we have decided to let in some new blood because there's a problem is fairly laughable, and I'm sure people will recognize this condescension for what it is.

      At this time, we are continuing to interview those who feel they are ready for this experience.

    19. TEAM FILEnetworks // 9/14/2009 10:42:00 PM  

      Thanks for the info hypnotoad.

      gre,
      "as expected. "We are expanding" always means "we have a problem here..."

      That's a foolish assumption mate.

    20. King // 9/14/2009 10:53:00 PM  

      @TEAM FILEnetworks

      have you seen that shit tracker yourself?

      i guess not otherwise u would not have said "foolish assumption"

    21. TEAM FILEnetworks // 9/14/2009 11:34:00 PM  

      @King,
      "have you seen that shit tracker yourself?"

      Of course. According to my opinion it's a decent movie tracker. Just because one random member found it to be crap doesn't mean everyone else thinks the same. It all comes down to personal preference I guess.

      What i said to gre is irrelevant to CN anyways."We are expanding" does not always mean "we have a problem here...".

    22. gre // 9/15/2009 09:09:00 AM  

      I don’t know how many users CN has, but it seems it’s a small tracker "with the same content elsewhere". I'm member from various trackers which have adopted that "we are extremely closed!" policy in the begging. Obviously it does not work, so they decide to bring more users. So, if a secret tracker is really “rocking”, there’s no point to recruit new users. They are secret, they don't want that people know, you're not welcome after all... and now a post in filenetworks at staff's request. What about the code of silence? The staff just broke it. I can already imagine they using the same excuse later: “We are expanding again… but remember your code of silence…”. You are secret? Keep secret. Don't cry and ask to users join in when you are fucked up.

    23. TEAM FILEnetworks // 9/15/2009 10:41:00 AM  

      "and now a post in filenetworks at staff's request."

      That is not correct. It was we who asked first if it was ok to post the news. They did not come to us begging.

      I see that you are not even a member there. How can you judge a tracker from the outside mate?

      "Don't cry and ask to users join in when you are fucked up."

      Even if that were true, no one is holding a gun to your head and making you go through the interview. As said in the article, simply use another tracker if this doesnt suit you.

    24. xtreme // 9/15/2009 12:20:00 PM  

      What we mean boss is that if they got the same content of all trackers and got no members...why are they so tough in the interview!!. The way I'm seeing it..is that they only want the focus and the fake fame. all these secret tracker things don't matter to me at all..I want you to imagine after suffering in the interview then you shocked with the ALL OVER THE INTERNET content......now you know.

      Wow. Can we please stop the whining and move on? It their tracker, their rules. If you cant handle them, dont join. If you think the interview is 'suffering' don't even try it. If it has the same content, please use whatever you are using right now.

    27. gre // 9/15/2009 03:38:00 PM  

      They consider themselves too important. It’s more a place to smoke a pipe and build a virtual status among some nerds than download content. I don’t need to be inside to judge, their attitude in itself is quite pathetic. When they grow up and become something seemed to a decent tracker, we'll talk about it again (what, as a matter of fact, will never happen).

    28. blabla // 9/15/2009 06:43:00 PM  

      sounds like a great place,

      been trying for a day still can't get interviewed.

    29. - // 9/16/2009 03:01:00 PM  

      Yeah, i waited for a couple of hours on IRC, no response..

    30. Thc // 9/20/2009 08:49:00 PM  

      You people make me laugh. Everytime I see people whining about a tracker it's because they have been banned from said tracker or could never get in.

      Get over it and stop whining.

      CN is a great tracker and are not in need of anything. They decided to give people the opprotunity to join and instead of being thanked for their generosity, they get flamed because of a few people whining.
