Suprnova.org to be relaunched thanks to The Pirate Bay

Suprnova.org to be relaunched thanks to The Pirate Bay The former owner of the infamous, but legendary torrent tracker Suprnova.org has donated the domain to the admins of another notorious tracker The Pirate Bay and it seems Suprnova will be relaunched soon.
A few months ago, "Sloncek", the former owner, donated the domain to TPB but the admins have kept it quiet while planning its relaunch. The admins left a couple cryptic blog entries including one that said "The past, the present and the future. It’s all the same, but one thing’s for sure, we will radiate for weeks." It is clear now that that message was in reference to Suprnova.

Sloncek responded to the news by finally telling why he decided to donate the domain. “The domain was doing nothing. I know that domain has some nostalgic value and some people would be more then happy to see it back online. I don’t use it, and TPB is the only team that I know will use it correctly.”

“I will be involved in the community [Forums] on a separated domain”,
Sloncek said and added, “The site has to look almost exactly like it looked before. They can upgrade it, but they cannot change it appearance completely. We further agreed that the site has to be community orientated (not private).”

Alongside the relaunch will be a new community forum for both Suprnova and TPB and will be located at Suprbay.org.

One of the admins of TBP, Brokep, had this to say of their decision, “we talked it over and decided it was
something people would have use for, it would help the torrent community and it would also signal that if you shut one down it will get back up again.”


Suprnova should be up and running by next week.

All the other "novas" were mere copies of supernova....it was the original! I just hope they keep it like it was.

Ah, with the bitter news of modchip crackdowns comes this sweet little nugget. Very nice! TPB has done it again. :)

Wow, this is great. Only hope it relaunches with the same depth of material that i rememeber it by.

Yeah, but it's public, as is TPB. Nice that they can remain up and running, but who is going to want to risk getting a letter from their ISP? I know so many people who have been sent letters. My Protowall gets slammed just trying to open the page.

Well I'm not completely familiar with Supernova.org but I guess it won't hurt to have another torrent site. Anyways, I hope it's as huge as everyone is saying it used to be.

"War"? Don't give them that much credit, the situation is closer to a retard flailing it's arms at something irritating it, no war occurred, though the flailing continues.

Awesome. Memories are flooding back....

I have a stupid question. What's the difference with files listed on Suprnova as apposed to say Isohunt and Pirate Bay? If this is P2P then shouldn't all t0rrent sites be linked the same way? If Isohunt searches the most trackers, then why the need for other sites?
