We're a torrent site, a large and growing one at that. Seems some have forgotten the roots in why we exist. We exist because we love to share files. File sharing is something that is a given right to each of us, no matter who or what tries to blockade us from this. We here at Extra Torrent, exist solely for this purpose, to help pinpoint you in the right direction for all your BitTorrent Protocol needs. Our community is strong, and our fanbase is widespread. Everywhere I go I hear the appreciation for the things we do on ET. Let's explore the roots of ET.
ET is coming up on it's anniversary soon, it will be three years in November, and as a way to pay our respects to this young yet large and strong site, I wanted to take this time to hear from our community. Let's take a journey into the history of the site.
When ET was founded, it was a small yet invigorating tool to index .torrent files. First merely leading you to the most popular torrents from all over the web. We had a small staff, even before my time, that worked daily to make sure the content here was expansive, and ever growing.
There have been many uploaders and staff members who have come and gone over the years, all of which did their part in making ET the place to be. without the dedication from each of them, ET wouldn't co-exist with the other indexers and trackers out there today. Those men and women who helped ET climb to the heights it's at now, all deserve our admiration.
Through time, ET has sat by idly while many other sites have succumbed to the court battles, and overcame the odds and kept the BitTorrent Protocol alive and well. ET has always been here, growing, day by day, building up a massive database of .torrent files for the world to come here and select from. Now, with a database of over 1.5 MILLION torrent files, we are a force to be reckoned with among indexers.
At first, ET had few uploaders, just many indexes which reached across the globe, ensuring that Extra Torrent would have the content necessary to keep the users coming to our humble domain. Now we have a massive list of uploaders, which grows daily. We continue to see uploaders from all over the world, and all seven continents, across all the oceans of Earth, bringing what they want to share with the world, to our site.
Not only has our database grown, but our fan base has too. Extra Torrent has a list of over 40 MILLION seeders on it's torrents, and somewhere in the range of over 220 MILLION leechers. That's a lot of file sharers. With this growth, has came many encoders from various parts of the web, all wishing to share their work with us, and propagate their releases.
Without the support from our community, none of this could be possible. It's those of you who come here daily, and spread the word to your family and friends, that keeps us growing. We want to continue to grow, and we want you to continue to spread the message of why ET is the place to be. There is an old saying from an Admin here, taker, "If we don't have it, you don't need it."
Oh how true is this. ET has almost everything that you could possibly imagine. Our search system leads you to nearly anything you could ever want to find, and if it's not there, chances are it's not anywhere else. We have a staff that is always on demand to help you, and a community of dedicated users who are always there to assist. What more could you ask for in a torrent site? There isn't much.
We do have plans to expand, and bring new content and features in the near future. ET is constantly changing and evolving the way it operates, to ensure that everyone who comes here with good intentions, has those desires met. We plan in the relative future, to add new themes to the site, with multiple layouts for our members to choose from, among other things. ET has it's own forums, it's own chat, it's own blogs, and it's own articles. We have artists, encoders, uploaders, admins, mods, staff, and most of all, we have dedicated members. Not forgetting to mention that we'll soon be opening the first ever ET Store, where you can get t-shirts with the logo of your favorite torrent site.
Take the comment area below to tell us what you enjoy about ET, and why you still come here. What is it about ET that makes it the place to be? Why do you feel that we are so beneficial to the file sharing world? I would love to hear everyone's take on this, and I look forward to it. Happy 3rd Anniversary ET.

|wow... greay article Obs... well i havent been here more than a year.. and so far this is the best public torrent site on the net... its really easy to browse and you find good people especially our Admin's they are so humble.. you go to other sites and they ignore you and even make fun of you . because you ask a question that for you is hard to understand since you are new to the torrent world. but for them its a chance to put you down.. trust me im a RED here and i have been shut down in other public site.. just cause you ask a simple question.... thanks for everything ExtraTorrent... and we plan on bringing our members here the best torrents...|

|Another interesting read Obs. Why I love ET, Within the first 10 mins of signing up I was chatting with 2 admins getting welcomed. Chatting with you Obs on my second day. Nobody here makes anyone feel as because they are new they don't belong, Its the exact opposite. I love the articles. You don't come here just to grab a file and split. I come on here to get something and usually spend an hour reading and looking around. I love the look of the new releases on the side bar. I love the fact that 99.9% of movies have screen shots, what the movie is about, who encoded it etc.|
Well I could keep going on about what I love about this site. But instead I will give it a movie rating at 10/10
Thanks, keep up the great work, its muchly appreciated.

|As I was saying yday till a slew of ppl came knocking & my neice shut off my lap...very touching article, well written Ob! I have to agree w/ the first 3 posts which is erything combined that I would have said. Adding to all that, this is the only place where ppl that have every clue about makin quality torrents treat ppl that have NONE w/ love & respect (did I say that correctly?). Well y'all know what I mean, they make us feel relevant =)It's part of being a decent human being...to treat others equally, u know. Maybe that's y errybody plays nicey-nicey here than go elsewhere & act indignant, lol. ET brings the best out of us, rewards us w/ lil icons & checks the torrents for us! Yap, ET got swag & their own style...but don't come here & act a fool, Ob will go gangsta on ur a(zz) & have u hittin fences, lol! Yes & the torrent-world SupaStarrs r all here, plus we know its their uL's fa-real & ET stays on top of their game so we don't have 2 travel all ova cyber-space searchin 4 da best of da best. They spoil us r-o-t-t-e-n & deserve all our luv n respect XXOOO|
