A Polish Torrent Site for Polish Torrents
The site that we will be looking at today caters to torrent files of all kinds, granted that those torrents are of a Polish origin. Bit Nova is a multiple category Polish torrent tracker. It contains just about everything you could ever hope for … free indie movies, TV series, music, video games, open-source software, adult content, sports, eBooks, anime, documentaries, etc.
Here’s the catch, though (or perhaps the lure, depending on your background), Bit Nova is a Polish site. So, of course, this means that everything on the site is written in Polish (which is no problem if you are using Google Chrome’s auto translate function or something similar). The more important reason that I tell you this, though, is because this is going to affect the nature of the torrent files themselves.
On Bit Nova, being a Polish torrent site, the torrents you are able to find here, too, are going to be Polish, through and through. Movies will likely be in Polish. Subtitles will likely be in Polish. The free indie music torrents will be Polish. This is not to say that you won’t be able to find, say, any free American indie movies or popular free indie music.
If you are Polish, you will probably be pleased to learn that Bit Nova also has plenty of social features that will put you into contact with likeminded fellow Polish P2P file sharers.
At any rate, though, where does Bit Nova fall on the spectrum of torrent trackers that exist? Is Bit Nova one of the best torrent sites on the web? Is it even worth your time and effort? Well, let’s dive in and take a look, shall we?
Bit Nova is not the worst torrent site that I have ever seen. It is far from the best, too. I would say it is exceedingly mediocre. It’s easy enough to navigate and browse torrents, but it definitely doesn’t have any of the wow factor, either in how interactive or experiential the site is. Nor does Bit Nova have much in the way of an advanced search engine or anything of the sort. As far as how it looks, though, you pretty much get what you get, and that is all there is to it.
Home Page – When you land on Bitnova.info, you will be greeted by a somewhat confusing logo. “BitNova.Info” appears in a clashing blue and red type, appearing in front of several textured black rectangles. I cannot tell if they are meant to be screens, maybe speakers? They look like they could be a series of solar panels … but that wouldn’t make much sense.
Whatever it is, below the logo, you’ll find a site menu bar. This is where you will be able to access the whole of the site, all from one convenient location. Browse by clicking on any of the following: Home, Torrents, Magnet URL Generator, Search, Upload, Crew, Regulations, Help, or Contact.
Below the site menu bar, the page is separated into 3 main sections with content broken up into clearly distinct boxes in the middle, left, and right-hand sides of the page. Down the center of the page, newcomers to torrenting can learn about how to torrent and what will be required. Scroll down, staying in the middle, and you’ll find a moving carousal of new torrent files, site news, popular torrents, and the best uploaders.
To the left is your user panel (login, register, etc.), an easy way to browse torrents by category and subcategory (with a link tree), and a few links to a torrent subtitle site and a few recommended torrent clients. To the right, you’ll find the site’s statistics, latest torrents, and recent comments.
Inner Pages – The inner pages are just about as lackluster as the home page. Functional, sure, but definitely not interesting or aesthetically pleasing in any way. The torrent info pages, for instance, have plenty of information within them, both on the content itself and the torrent file in question. Each torrent has a comments section, too, which is always helpful. I think my biggest gripe with the design of this site is just how bland it is. The most exciting part of Bit Nova’s design is the ability to switch between day and night mode by clicking on the sun icon (or the moon icon if you are in night mode) in the site menu bar. Switching to night mode simply warms up the colors on the page from white to beige.
Content and Features
This site offers torrents of free indie movies, free indie TV series, free indie video games, open-source software, free indie anime, homemade XXX, free indie eBooks, and free indie music. However, anyone who torrents knows that a torrent tracker is only as good as its community is active, how many members are actively seeding torrents. So, with that, does Bit Nova have an actively engaged enough user base for this site to become your new go-to torrent tracker?
(A Lack of) Community Engagement – Well, my initial answer to this question is, “sadly, I don’t think so.” Or, rather, at least not at this very moment. It looks like there is a very low level of engagement from the users on this site. I’m talking recent torrents with only a few seeders, if that. Many of the files actually have an alarming 0 seeders attached to them. Shouldn’t at least the uploader be seeding the files at first? This is disappointing to see.
Mobile and Desktop Experience
The mobile version of the site is, well, just as unimpressive as the desktop version. I should clarify, again, like the desktop version, the mobile Bit Nova is not terrible and not great. It is forgettable. Usable, sure, but nothing to write home about. I think that the mobile optimization of this site could have been improved upon. You are going to have to do a great deal of zooming in on your smartphone in order to read the massive amounts of text that are on this site.
Oh, and ads are another thing plaguing this site. Not only does Bit Nova have a bunch of ads, they are also one of those annoying sites that plasters a huge banner across the site if you do not turn off your ad blocker.
Suggestions that I have for Bit Nova
First thing’s first, I think that if Bit Nova were to give their site a top to bottom makeover, it could lead to curing this site’s other big problem – which is, of course, a lack of community engagement. With a nicer, more inviting website, perhaps more users would feel compelled to become actively involved in sharing, uploading, seeding, and downloading files.
