we will be back soon, currently having issues transferring tracker data between nodes.
last backup was 18 hours ago so a few hours will be lost, estimated about 20 torrents and 60 comments because we had hourly stat backups and the last one was around that amount higher than the backup.
be patient, don't know of any sites with as large of a sharing community as tpb :)
(estimating around 6 hours before our costa rica domain is working)
In the meantime there is a google cache method (picture below related) to access torrents from cached TPB pages. We are not sure if the Swedish govt. is using our tracker to get IPs of users, but you should use a VPN/proxy.
Any more questions, I'll be happy to answer them here.
If the Swedish government is on your asses, do you guys have to leave the country? Have you already done so?
If not, why hasn't the whole operation and/or team relocated to a tropical country that's more friendly to your operation? Surely the absurd amount of advertising on the site should be enough to buy non-shit housing in a poor country.
i didnt even doubt you had copies and backups and stuff. Thank you for posting here, i feel privileged to read about it here, means you appreciate 4chan and what can it do.
I was getting my info from torrentfreak earlier and i must tell a lot of people there question if you are gone for good. So someone with account there should really go in comments section and post a screencap of this.
Once again, thank you TPB and everyone who works on it for last 10 years. You truly are crusaders of new age.
Also bumping because this is most important thread in a whole
I would rather keep where we are in private matter but we are safe. Thats all i can tell you. All the rumors going around today about the "police raid" are false. If people would have noticed we put a small warning on the websites homepage for 4 hours before it went down.
>we are safe
Good to hear. And keep up the good work like >>584020427 said. I'll also reiterate his thanks for posting about this here on 4chan and not just letting info leak out through torrentfreak at whatever pace they can get ahold of it.
Yes im not completely sure of everyone one on the team, but i most definitely appreciate 4chan. Not as much as of recently but you know. 4chan will always be in heart :)
PirateBay is not kill. PirateBay will live 4ever.
>Not as much as of recently
D-did we do something wrong, pirate-sama?
Oh, so the usual.
I've gotta get going, though. Will you, or anyone else from TPB, be posting more updates here? If so, will they be at some regular time or just whenever they happen?
Yes it is just barely running itself as of right now. And sadly now exact eta but it should be good when the rest of the servers come back up which i stated is in about 6 hours from now.
erm, i posted this on torrentfreak, but my comment is not approved yet. Should i delete it?
If anything changes i will be posting another update here within the next 4-5 hours, but if everything goes as planned no more updates will be needed. thanks for stopping by :)
>pirate bay has become an integral part of my life without me realizing it
Also every word >>584020427 said. You guys are fucking martyrs. Everyone is on your asses, when there are 100 other torrenting websites and you're still rocking it. You guys are one of the last remaining pillars of true internet freedom. A bit like this place used to be not too long ago until moot saw his gfs pussy getting wrecked. Fuck that guy.
