    Been wondering this as well. The tracker still seems to be up but the website is not.

    I believe Stoi said something about it on filesharingtalk forums.

    Something about a whitelist and something something fixing stuff here and there.

    Nothing too big i assume.

    Right when I needed it, it's not there. Compared to other trackers, BC has semi-failed. It's being run by children >_>

    Blackcats being down is never a surprise anymore. This seems to happen every other week nowadays...

    IIRC, BC is remaining closed, no invites.

    If I kill a Blackcats member, do I become one? Over time with no invites they are going to run out of people

    No you will not...Anyways I believe they will open up the invite system again, because they recently started running ad banners on their site to compensate for lack of donations.

    Every once in a while, and I mean a while, they open up registration for one day. You're just going to have to wait for them to do it again.

    I dunno if they are pruning accounts since they closed sign ups, but I assume that they are actually being extra stringent to make room for new accounts...they got flooded when they were open on Haloween.

    When I saw the topic title, I thought it was something to do with Sunderland Football Club.

    Ah well

    If you hit register for every three seconds for the next half hour or so, they'll let you in... You just have to fill everything fast. That's how I got in. =P
