Diligent work on a covert project spanning back nearly 8 full months has finally paid off - the SceneLife crew are now ready to unveil their latest tracker, simply titled "The X". Some will call this "ScL v2", when in fact The X is an entirely different (and better) site than its predecessor, in every way. Old staff (and new) have come together to create this brand-new & exciting 0sec/scene tracker - the first of its kind to be powered by ScT’s unreleased ScTBDev sourcecode. Also known as just X, it’s also the only known tracker in existence to begin life with more than 15,000 active torrents, all before opening the door.
The idea for ‘X‘ can be traced back to at least September 2009, when ScL staff agreed to move away from absentee ownership and other irreparable internal problems. Truth be told - ScL had been struggling for quite some time, and it was finally announced on 03/31/2010 that SceneLife would cease to exist as we know it.
However, active development of a new tracker had already commenced prior to the official announcement. Staff at "X" (ex-ScL’ers & others) have some connections. With assistance from unnamed former SceneTorrents’ staff, the crew obtained the new ScTDBev codebase months in advance of its intended public release. 2½ months ago - work began to create X, the first tracker ever to implement ScTBDev.

LATEST FRONT PAGE NEWS
At time of review this is the stats, the site is very easy to navigate
Rules are like the any other trackers, not very strict in my opinion
Without giving away too much info, activity on the site (and tracker) is requisite for transcending in user class/rank. Be sure to check out the FAQ.
Being a Zero Day General tracker there are lots of different categories
15,600 torrents on opening. Crazy as it may seem but ‘X’ already has a huge selection of untouched scene-release torrents. All active; all ready to download.
The forum is a nice place to be at, is quite busy for a new tracker and is nicely set out
Forget about 100Mbit - torrents are hosted on multiple 1 Gbit full-duplex servers. Yep, all 15K. Great download speeds to be had by all!

As expected, registration to The X is not open directly - and probably never will be. Here’s what we know so far.
IRC recruitment. Potential members can apply through a short IRC interview.
* Network: irc.p2p-net.eu
* Channel: #x.interviews
* Hotlink: irc.p2p-net.eu/x.interviews
Some will argue that there’s really no need for another 0day/scene tracker, but we beg to differ. While there are literally dozens of "scene" trackers, there are only a handful that are able to successfully combine excellent pretimes & thoroughness along with a strong, active community. The loss of ScT left an opening; these are big shoes to fill but The X is certainly up to the task.
