Hi, I just recently became a newzbin member (No I don't have invites so don't PM me, and I didn't get in from here so please dont ask me who I got the invite from). I've recently been browsing through it and I'm a little unsure of what the incentives are of using it. I'm on the verge of deciding whether I should pay for it or not, and I know quite a few members here are in newzbin, so I thought I might ask here.
I like the "user indexing" concept, which was why I sought out an invite in the first place. I'm too retarded and lazy to filter through fakes on auto indexing sites like nzbindex or binsearch, I dont have the stomach for it . So far I have already seen nzbmatrix, and a couple of the forum sites like Merlins Portal that was posted on the useful sites thread (should be stickied btw). I haven't paid for any of them yet, but I'm considering paying for NZBmatrix as it seems well organized, has good retention and is a lifetime membership.
I have been briefly looking through newzbin but I am a complete newbie to usenet so I may be missing alot. I'm not quite sure what makes it the "king" of indexing sites. What other good features does it have that gives it the edge over sites like nzbmatrix or forums (like rss, other things, ect.)? NZBmatrix seems to have better retention (I can find up to 400day files), and forum sites seem to be pretty extensive as well, while newzbin is still at 240 days. Does it have better content, more varied content, better pres (Almost sounds like I'm talking about torrents but don't know how to put it lol) or anything else that I should be aware of?
Thanks for the help.
