    ok well i have owned private trackers in the past and i have tbdev scripts that i have modified myself. as many of you know a lot of trackers make a good few thousand dollars from donations a month. I know I could start one of these fairly easily and could profit easily as well but my problem is I dont have the startup money needed which is why im around here looking for stuff to do. I have access to a scene topsite where I have made a script where the torrents can be auto uploaded from the topsite. The script is tested and working, I just need one or a few partners who would want to join me in this project and then split the profits evenly. The costs of maintaining the site would be around $300-$350 a month, which is fairly cheap but once again i am at zero right now. If you are interested and want to know more please PM me. This is a serious and rare offer. thank you.

    How do we know you're not a cop?

    N - It's a valid question.

    im 17 and im still in high school and if i need to prove that you if your interested then ill give you whatever proof you need. Also if i was a cop dont you think i would have the $300/month to start this myself? Im pretty sure that feds have all the money in the world to play around with.

    Indeed. I'm not trying to throw salt on your game here, I'd be interested myself if not for how hugely dangerous it can be. But if I was a fed coming on here fishing for p2p community connections, I'd probably start with a post like yours.

    By the same token, be careful who you agree to partner with on something like this. Hosting a tracker is a jailable offense.

    Id just like to point your attention towards the pirate bay, the worlds largest torrent tracker, online since 2003 despite a large amount of legal threats and even a police raid.

    There are reasons for this that are well beyond the scope of this thread.
