The new year is coming fast, and we're only a few days away. Everyone always makes "new year's resolutions" with a set of standards and/or goals they hope to accomplish for the new year. Here on Extra Torrent we plan to do the same. 2009 was a huge year for ET and file sharing in general. We've seen the rise and fall of many infamous torrent sites, as well as the growth of our own site Extra Torrent. What will the new year have in store for us?
We've implemented so many new features in this past year. From various icons, to multiple featured areas, new forums, new chat, new articles, a revised blog, a popular group of uploaders, new staff, and other great ideas which we all envisioned and was made reality by the one we call BOSS. The brainchild of the BOSS "admin" has shown us that the sky is the not the limit, but it's beyond the stars.
ET Featured Torrents, also known as the "HOT" areas such as the First Cams, XVID DIVX, H264 X264, Television, and Foreign hot zone to showcase the best of the best torrents in those categories.
We dropped the "old" style HTML chat, and upgraded to our very own chat room, which is AJAX based, and always lively. ET Chat is a fun and friendly place for anyone to hang out, get help, or just have a good time.
We've seen the new ET Articles area launch and become an important part of Extra Torrent. Now with a total of one hundred sixty articles including this one, the majority of which I myself have researched and spent a prolonged period of time writing, in a period of five months. That began in August and it's become a brand of it's own, with fresh news stories, hot topics, and technology related articles for each and every member of our community to enjoy. Recently many others have began writing as well, Z0R4N, Qu, and others.
Our forums underwent an extreme makeover, being rebuilt from the very foundation. ET Forums arrived with style. It's now a very active area for our ET community, which is implemented directly under Extra Torrent now instead of a standalone forum. So many fresh faces and ideas are flooding into the forums on a daily basis that it's taken on a life of it's own. It's now just one more reason that ET is the place to be.
We watched the TrackedByET tracker arrive, allowing the ET community to use a new and extremely efficient public tracker to flood the torrent clients globally. It started off small and now has been scraped close to twenty million times. Yes twenty million times.
We watched as ET brought a vast array of new encoders into it's online boundaries. The ET Uploaders are some of the best in the world. It went from a few great uploaders to an infamous list of popular releasers or release groups. Now anything from any particular encoder you would want, is right here on ET.
Exclusive to ET in 2009 was the birth of ExtraScene Release Group. Love or hate them they proudly represent Extra Torrent as a home grown release group. All over the web on any torrent site you can imagine, you'll find releases from ExtraScene, all of which are found on ET first because they forever and always will claim ET as their home. Along with their arrival, sparked the creation of many other new release groups that are home grown now, all of which were inspired by the one and only ExtraScene Release Group.
The one and only magiccrack has kept the ET Blog alive and well. It's a nicely written array off film reviews, and details about their arrival. This area has been important and vital to the ET community. It has details about so many torrents that the only way to properly describe it is to tell you to pay magic a visit there. Who needs film critics when you have magiccrack? It's a place everyone whom enjoys ET should check out.
We watched as some of the most famous torrent sites in history fell, either due to lawsuits or due to lack of motivation to continue the good fight. The Pirate Bay was swarmed in many court battles, and went down, then up, then down, then up, on multiple occasions. Eventually leading to their still standing attempt to sell the site. A few other torrent trackers were shut down, but none as epic as the late Mininova. One day their users visited the site only to find out that Mininova had given in to the pressures of the judicial system, and removed all their torrents. Soon to replace the popular site was ET, ready and prepared to accept all of the users from the fallen giants and able to provide a wing for them to shelter under.
ET itself upgraded it's servers, with an amazing system that tech geeks will crave for. The way ET is operated is on a level all to its own, with a balanced database and an extremely efficient line of protected servers dedicated to make ET run as smooth as it does. Most sites could only drool at the way our base stands. It's just another creative aspect that makes us unique.
With the great rise in traffic, and the huge increase in uploaders and members, we needed to add some new staff to our team. This year, the ET Staff has doubled, allowing us to best monitor the torrents which are loaded into our site, making sure that each and every one of our members are kept safe and secure. We verify all our torrents, and our team does amazing things for the community. Each of them are unique, with their own talents and strengths. We saw the first female Admin join our staff, and since then we've added several. ET is the place to be for all of mankind, without any discrimination what so ever.
ET had a great year, and it's only getting better with each passing day. Now we have the year two thousand and ten approaching rapidly, with far greater than imagined possibilities in front of our eyes. In 2010 we expect to see many new changes to our beloved Extra Torrent, and many new features to keep our community on it's toes.
In 2010, we hope to see all of you just as often as we see you now. We expect to see so many new faces, and so many familiar ones, that we are overwhelmed with the support from those who are dedicated to the only place to be, ET.
Looking back at the past of ET, we're all amazed with the growth and commitment that has successfully climbed the mountains of the torrent world. We have added all these new features, and the response has been great. The best part is, we're only getting started.
This upcoming year, we hope to implement many new ET exclusive customizations, such as multiple color/style themes for our users to choose from when looking at the site's layout. We're going to be launching the ET Store, with merchandise such as T-Shirts for our community to proudly wear. We'll have an exciting new design for the Extra Torrent banner this year, assuming that we finish all the rest first.
We hope to not only allow change into our wardrobe, but to keep everything so fresh, that 365 days out of the year the same outfit is never wore more than once. Our community spoke, we listened, we made changes, and the end result thus far was much greater than any on person could have thought possible.
So the New Year's Resolution of Extra Torrent, is to continue to provide you with the greatest experience of any torrent site on Earth. From Extra Torrent, through the airwaves, inside the lines, within your bandwidth, all the way to your PC, we will continue to grow.
I have never been so proud, and so grateful, to be a part of something as beneficial to the world as Extra Torrent. I proudly stand side by side with the rest of the ET staff to continue bringing each and every person who visits our site only the best of the best. Together, the ET community, is the single greatest group of people that has every made waves in the world of torrents.
We're working very hard to launch each innovative idea as they are loaded into our minds. If you, the community, had any ideas about anything else we could add to our site, please feel free to write them in the comments below.
Peace and prosperity to all of the ET community in 2010!

|Thanks for a GREAT site. Your efforts are appreciated by all as you can see by your rapid growth. You have filled a gap left by the fallen. Keep your high standards and you will continue to be my number one P2P site. Relatively new to this, I feel a need to become more active by sharing. I think I have have found a HOME. My resolution this year is to start uploading, on ET of course, a large collection of Blues CD's & DVD's. Here's to the staff and members of ET! We will all have a "Healthy and Prosperous" New Year!!|

j/k! dont wana seem greedy ;)
|To boldly go where no torrent site has gone before..This is way more then just a torrent site, this is a tight knit community that welcomes you with open arms. A place to come into to browse around, get information, talk to the other members, ask questions, just a place to come and "hang out". One of the things I like the most is the (hands on) control of the site, and the virus free atmosphere. Like I've said before "I luv dis place", and proud to be a VIP member. Happy New Year ET Community..The place to be!|
|loads of thing to do this coming year,so my resolutions are,to stop putting my head under police batons to much,stop getting my eyes cleaned with cs gas,not to get nicked again,and most importantly to spend as much time helping out on ET,for all those admin,I want to become ET's official house cleaner of dead torrents if you dont mind(tho be pacient only learning the now.),so you'll need to get a wee rubber glove / duster symbol sorted for me! hehe!|

|keep up the good hard work x|
|This site has been my fav since I discovered torrents.|
The most attractive feature has been the poster\case\box
image layouts that always made me feel like I was in a
video store. Something very movie rental like in eyeballing
the cover before you take the torrent. The other quality feature
being the still images of picture quality to check out before deciding
if you download or not. The hardworking staff verifications save
a lot work sorting through fake "dummy" torrents posted by the
entertainment company to frustrate novice downloaders.
The ability to comment on a torrent is a key feature as well that
is vital to the smooth machine this place is.
Within 2010 I bet this place becomes a premiere sharing
destination for half the world. Oh post script: I also dig being
informed about the massive infringements on privacy, freedom of speech
and liberty, the travesties of the justice and political systems that
Obs brings to the attention of the community to keep us informed.
Kudos to all the tech
work that goes into things like upgrades too. Keep up the great work ET!
