    From the website (translated by Google):
    Dear users!

    “Today (February 18, 2010) by “Ru-Center” (Moscow, Leningrad Prospect д.74, korp.4, tel +7 (495) 994-46-01 +7 (495) 737-06-01, www . nic.ru) without warning, and any notice has been suspended domain delegation TORRENTS.RU. According to information from the “Ru-Center” Delegating domain TORRENTS.RU suspended by order of the Investigative Division of Chertanovskaya Moscow regional prosecutor’s office from 16.02.2010g ”

    In “En-Center sent the corresponding request, however, it is likely that the clarification would take some time, during which torrents.ru address will not be available.

    In this regard, we had to urgently change the domain name to rutracker.org.

    Technically, this means that in order to continue the exchange of information you need to change the address in the tracker have downloaded a torrent file with bt.torrents.ru on bt.rutracker.org, (instead of bt can be bt2, bt3 and bt4) or download the torrent files again (they already have a new address tracker).

    All the other links on the forum will be changed automatically, but you may need zanogo enter the login and password when you log on the forum to the browser to remember the new address.

    The efficiency of the forum will be restored within an hour while we make the necessary changes.
