    Is it even worth it getting on IRC for anything Usenet? My IRC experience is minimal. I have been getting my stuff mainly from sites such as this. Just wondered if I was missing out on something or not.

    #gotnzb4u on efnet is a neat system. basically you search there site and every request has a number. then you type -sn req#.

    I created this guide a while ago, http://filesharingtalk.com/threads/3...-NZB-s-Off-IRC

    To connect to the server and join the channel use this command: /server -m irc.efnet.nl -j #gotnzb4u

    There are many other chans which aren't indexed using #gotnzb4u, such as #mp3.spam, #alt.binaries.inner-sanctum, All sub-agbx channels etc.

    Alternatively you can join a NZB site with RSS (I believe FST has one ) or use a search engine (NZBIndex, Binsearch etc)

    In my opinion it's not necessary because it's practically the same thing as using a public site that automatically indexes.

    not true, on irc you make a request and have it filled quik if not instantly. Most nzb sites requests sections are filled mostly by someone making an irc request for a fill.

    Went to their website http://www.gotnzb4u.me.uk/ and registered for an account. Said it would send an email but it didn't and said if I didn't get an email to contact the admin. How to do that is a mystery to me since the site doesn't have that info as far I can tell. Would it be appropriate to do this on their IRC channel?

    I copy and pasted that and it says that I need a password? Maybe I am doing something wrong?

    I think you're doing something wrong sandman_1, #gotnzb4u is a open channel ie. You don't need a invite or a key.

    Can you copy/paste your log or supply a screenshot?

    Sorry, I assumed you were using mIRC which means that the command I gave you won't work .

    /server irc.efnet.nl
    /join #gotnzb4u

    What are you talking about friends? I am not getting you properly. Please tell me in detail, so that I can be a part of this forum.

    Thanks.
