1377x.to - the torrent site, sold out or broken?
I used to use Brave Browser. I've been alternating between WaterFox and Basilisk Browsers. They all have fucking issues and pros and cons.
On Brave 1377x.to was great. No pop-up ads, no chats, and a working search. With the other two I endured the first two and still had search until this week.
I can no longer search on 1337x
https://www.1377x.to/ is the home page with just a search - that no longer works for me.
At the bottom you'll see "FULL HOME PAGE" which takes you to:
Across the top, this page features a row of movie poster thumbnails of top downloads - plus lower down, lists of "Most Popular Torrents", "Popular Movie Torrents", "Popular Foreign Movie Torrents", "Popular TV Torrents", "Popular Music Torrents", "Popular Application Torrents", "Popular Game Torrents", and "Popular Other Torrents".
The movie poster thumbnails take you to pages like "What the Constitution Means to Me (2020) 720p WEBRip 800MB x264 ~GalaxyRG ⭐" with 7.1/10 on IMDb.
Meanwhile the top right "Search for torrents..." won't work for me.
I thought maybe I searched it too much and it blocked my IP or something, but now I'm thinking there's a problem.
I can't login anymore - it takes me to a free trial of something that I don't know and don't have money for, and is probably tracking people - with your credit card.
Suddenly none of my favourite sharing release persons/groups seem to share there any more:
- Tigole - 1080 + 2160 so good I wrote an article: https://infogalactic.com/info/Tigole
- Vyndros - 1080 + 2160 on par with Tigole but for TV, a surly guy in the old QxR forum
- Classics - sometimes 720, but rare
- D0ct0rLew - 1080 stopped a while back
- Goki - 1080 stopped a year ago (with COVID)
- r00t - 1080 stopped a year ago (with COVID)
- r0b0t - 1080 stopped a while back
- SAMPA - 1080 + 2160 on par with Tigole
- SARTRE - 1080 + 2160 on par with Tigole
- Silence - 1080 + 2160 on par with Tigole
- NAHOM - 1080 + 2160 on par with Tigole
Is this part of a larger issue?
Is it possible that the "authorities" have secretly silently swooped in and nabbed D0ct0rLew, Goki, r00t, and r0b0t last year - and now the others within this month?
Is this a move to force us onto their streaming platforms?
Is this a move to force torrenting into obsolescence?
Is this a move to tighten up the Internet?
Or am I just a dumbass with a very problematic (daily) computer that's falling apart?
Sharing has always been an evolving subculture. I have not looked at piracy news for some time and was never on top of things except when I wrote that article (because I wanted to learn how to request specific classics).
If anyone has updates or news or recommendations for alternative sites to migrate to I'm all ears and grateful for any help.
