    ScienceHD close to the end

    Posted by the site's sysop earlier today:

    Regarding that, a few things you should know:

    • Donations are closed. We had about two months' worth of buffer, and this is allowing us to keep the servers on for a small extra period of time.
    • The web site will stay up until November 31 of this year, so that you have a month to download all the .torrent files you want.
    • The tracker will remain running for an additional month, to December 31, so you will be able to keep adding your downloaded .torrent files into your client and finish the data downloads. And even after Dec 31, if you leave your clients running, they will still be able to see the peers that they know about, and may still complete downloads.
    • Permanent sitewide freeleech will be set on
    • All exclusive tags will be removed and you are encouraged to share them elsewhere
    • We will be establishing an irc channel for refugees to stay in touch indefinitely. Details will be forthcoming.

    A special shout out to MR. Fuzzypants for being one of the most cool MODS in the history of Private torrent sites. You will be missed

    The full official post:

    And so this is farewell

    This site was started over seven years ago, with the goal of becoming a welcoming place for people to share science, learning, and education - a place for people who are curious about how the world works to come together. We've had quite the journey since then, and I'm very glad to say that I think we achieved that very well. We've been working the last seven years to make this place the best god damn documentary tracker out there. And by leaps and bounds it has! We have the best users, tightest community, and for a niche tracker we certainly have a ton of torrents. I think that I can speak for all of the staff, current and past, when I say that ScienceHD has been one of the biggest passions in our lives. It has truly been an honor to have been able to see this site grow, change, and develop over the years from the tiny place we once were trying to figure ourselves out, to the documentary powerhouse that we became.

    And so, I am sad to announce that it is time for this journey to come to an end. We would like to close down in a way that allows everybody to get as much of our content as possible, and would like to encourage you to share it to other sites as widely as you can. To help this along, we ask all of you to seed all of your torrents to the best of your ability, in order to allow your fellow users to get as much downloaded as possible, all the way to the end.

    Regarding that, a few things you should know:
    Donations are closed. We had about two months' worth of buffer, and this is allowing us to keep the servers on for a small extra period of time.
    The web site will stay up until November 30 of this year, so that you have a month to download all the .torrent files you want.
    The tracker will remain running for an additional month, to December 31, so you will be able to keep adding your downloaded .torrent files into your client and finish the data downloads. And even after Dec 31, if you leave your clients running, they will still be able to see the peers that they know about, and may still complete downloads.
    Permanent sitewide freeleech will be set on
    All exclusive tags will be removed and you are encouraged to share them elsewhere
    We will be establishing an irc channel for refugees to stay in touch indefinitely. Details will be forthcoming.
    We have an archive tool for grabbing torrent zips, which we will be adding some more functionality on to download lots of torrents at once.


    We understand people's natural response might be to go out of their way to try to figure out how to change our mind, but we would genuinely appreciate it if you are able to respect our decision. Please know that it did not come lightly.

    You all have truly made this site amazing, and I would like to thank all of you, the members, for your piece in this site and for helping to make this place the great place that it is.

    Maybe the are worried after what happened to BCG. Anyways it's no big deal, there will always be more trackers that replace the ones that close.

    I can't agree with that. Replace is not always easy or equal, when it is about niche specialized trackers.

    Yeah i know it that replacement wont be equal. I hope that the staff will put up the codebase somewhere so if someone decides to start a science related tracker they can use all what has already been done by scihd.

    I have to agree with @whiteLight on this. Strict rules, shitty mods and very very closed community is a recipe to failure.
    Too bad it's gone but i will certainly not miss it.
