We began oldpiratebay.org website as the memory to the original pirate bay. Then we created Open Bay to shift torrent industry and protest against digital snobbism. We got a lot of feedback on Old Pirate Bay, you guys want a lot of enhancements and features to be available on the website.
Well, here it is. Now it’s all in your hands, for the first time in history, you the community can create torrent website that you want and always wanted!
There are already about 372 websites powered by Open Bay engine and the number is growing! Via Github you can make your changes by sending pull request. Right now we are placed number 1 on Github with more than 1841 stars and 522 forks!
Also our goal is to make Torrents database that will maintain, improve and gain content by itself, with no participation on our side. It’ll be base that only Open Bay community will control and manage.
We put out polls on the main page and you guys will vote for a feature you want, and then it’s up to community to make it. It is the only way, the right way to do it. Open Bay should be controlled only with democratic institute, which involves every user in the world.
Now it’s all in your hands guys. We did all the work for putting this all together and it’s our dream that from now on there would be no “owner” of the Pirate Bay. It would be impossible to shut it down. And it would be the best torrent site ever, because it’ll be created for users, and by users. It’s up to you if this dream will ever come true.
The biggest story of the year in the movie industry is of course The Interview. Hacking Sony Pictures, documents leaked, terrorists and nuclear war threats and all this is about stupid comedy movie. It was awesome! It is the most controversial, publicly known and anticipated movie of the year. And now it is finally here!
Merry Christmas everyone, have (F)Un
With all this pirate bay business, we should not forget about our main focus, Isohunt.to, and it’s time for some update.
For those of you who don’t know what to watch. If you already watched all the new films and want something different. Or otherwise you want to know what’s fresh the in box office this week. Or you are looking for a new TV Show.
If that’s the case than our new feature is just for you! We’re releasing Isohunt Charts. Right there on the top. The orange flaming button.
Isohunt Chart is a list of movies picked for a certain occasion or date to entertain you basically. (yay!)
There are 5 kinds of charts for now:
We would love to hear your feedback, what do you think guys?
History of torrent sites such as Isohunt and The Pirate Bay gives us a lesson that would be a crime not to learn. The era of individual torrent sites is over. They are easy targets and can be destroyed in one moment. We must change the whole concept of torrents.
That is why we created Pirate Bay open source. It’s completely free! Now you can create your own copy of The Pirate Bay! Update and enhance this code to make it better for everyone.
First of all, we are creating the simple 6 step wizard where the minimum tech savvy person can create their own copy of the TPB. It has the two options. You can use our database and Sphinx search engine or use your own. The person only needs the hosting.
At the second, we are creating open GitHub repository where the community can create new functions and features for the distributed TPB.
And at the third, we will create dump database torrent file with the content from isohunt, kickass torrents and old pirate bay so anyone can download the current copy of the content from the top 3 torrent sites and update it by themselves.
Ideas are immortal and belong to everybody.
You probably already noticed but still, here it is, the new Isohunt design and some cool features we added that we worked on for the last couple of weeks.
Internet is moving forward and we try as hard as we can to keep up with look and feel of our website to be modern, user friendly and functional for you guys. Now almost every page has changed and some pages are brand new!
And what is also important, new design now is a lot easier to use on mobile devices!
Functional elements placed tight together, so you would have no problem to reach them all. Torrent page, movie card page, and news block on the main page, all changed. Go check ‘em out!
Another important feature is TV Shows/Series cards. We added movie cards few months ago and it proved to be very useful tool to search movies, actors, getting information, ratings and choose quality you desire.
In addition to all movie cards features you can choose season and episode right inside the TV card!
Finally, if you have any questions about our site, how our features work or any torrent questions in general, we created Isohunt.to F.A.Q. so you would always get your answers right away. Contact us if you didn’t find question in the F.A.Q. or you think that some questions should be added to it.
Another feature is coming soon that we’re happy to announce, but it is still in development. We will add Isohunt Movie charts!
It’s a useful tool for you to be on top of popular, new or just awesome movies and TV shows. Or if you don’t know what to watch this will be definitely a place to go. Follow our news to find out more.
That’s it for today folks, be sure to check out our ThePirateBay search oldpiratebay.org
Hope you’ll enjoy new Isohunt.
