Christmas is the best time to reflect on our great value of loving, sharing and giving. It’s perfect the time to share happiness and to spread joy, and of course, to make presents. On this meaningful day each of us is looking for a little bit of wonder and cheer. So Isohunt.to team wishes you most cheerful holidays full of warmth and smiles, love and joy.
Last week we had some troubles with fakes, uploaded and rated by bots. A lot of .rar archives etc. We thought how to solve the problem for a few days and some serious changes were made.
First of all we added ”Filter by Status“ option! Now you can filter torrents in the list only by VERIFIED, so you don’t need to deal with fake torrents anymore. Also the sorting automatically shows you verified torrents at the top now.
Second, we scanned the database and removed all the .rar archives. We also made a filter so the .rar archives will not be uploaded to the website.
Finally, if any torrent is marked as fake and you accidently come across it, you’ll see a red flag saying “Fake” so you know you shouldn’t download it.
We hope all that can help make a content on our website clear.
Well, that’s all for today, enjoy the weekend!
In November we had news about Isohunt founder Gary Fung and clothing designer Joe Clifford starting a pre Kickstarter campaign. Now they’ve officially started crowdfunding for their clothing collection! Clothing design is all about statements of freedom and sharing, so a lot of you might be interested in that. Besides, the stuff looks really cool! If you want to support these guys, go give ‘em a buck or few, or share the news to let other people know about it. To know more go here.
Here are some website enhancements that we’ve finished recently.
Many of you asked for advanced search options and we finally did it! For example, now you can search by the filename inside the torrent! Words between asterisks (*) will be used to search filenames and their extensions. Also now every space in a search phrase will be interpreted as “and”. The search result will contain all the requested words. Check out these new features and how to use them here.
As you know we’re a group of enthusiasts and there is no financial support from the outside of our community. We planned just to make a copy of isohunt to prove everyone that freedom is not something you can take away from us that easy. We didn’t expect this website to grow and develop at such speed. But it’s growing and it’s amazing! So we feel that we need a little more resources, gear and people to develop and maintain a stable work of isohunt.to. So now we decided to add some ads on the website. We hope you’ll understand. Good news for all the registered users: no ads will show up when you’re logged in. Keep using the clean isohunt as you used to.
Also there is a bitcoin hash, right above the shoutbox chat. So if you feel like helping our project with a little donation, we will be very grateful to you!
Thank you! See ya next time.
