Demonoid is back online after being shutdown in November of last year. Reports are that all trackers on the site seem to be functioning.
The only thing not to make the transition is the former admin, Deimos according to the message that greets visitors:
Since a few months ago, Deimos, the site administrator, lacks the necessary time to take care of the website, because of personal matters he's been needing to attend to. For this reason, he has decided to leave the site staff.
Before leaving, he assigned a new site administrator from among his friends to take care of the site. The old moderator team will continue helping with the site, unchanged. We will try to keep running everything just as it always has been.
The trackers and website seem to be working properly, and should any issues arise, they will be taken care of as soon as possible. The site might be going on and offline over the next days as we work out any problems.
Welcome back, and enjoy your stay!
Demonoid Site admin”
Many were convinced that Demonoid closing their doors was a sign of a major blow struck against piracy. Their revival makes one wonder what will come of other sites that are voluntarily closing their doors. Could they also be revived at some point in the future?
