    Default Merlins bought it back yet again!! Merlins-Portal.net

    Yup. Once again, Merlins re-opened it.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    According to the front page, it says 'Free is Free'.
    I'm guessing that, that means no need for a VIP membership anymore?
    Bit of an annoyance seeing as I was one!

    Wonder if there is any plans to create user RSS feeds this time for compatibility with Sab? Hmmm.

    Sticky: New NZB section will be along in a few days. Work in progress

    Gonna need to work hard to top nzbmatrix imo for the top spot.

    Was always a brilliant resource of getting the 'odd' things.

    Never really missed it tbh, despite being a VIP there. Still, its an extra resource for the hard to find stuff.

    Although nzb matrix is pretty good it still doesn't have a raw search feature like newzbin or binsearch and doesn't allow certain warez to be posted. IMO newzbin was always the best but I don't trust the nee site. Never really used merlins portal as most posts from there ended up on newzbin anyway. NZB Dogs was a good one for UK music charts and multi DVDs, not sure if they are still going.

    I use matrix now but really don't like it a great deal if I am honest. I had my Entourage rss go fucking crazy last night and try to download 4 pages of nzbs. I used to like the lay out of merlins so may have a look again.

    I thought it also allowed you to download more than a free account?

    Well seeing as after Merlins went down last time the email address I used for registration got hacked I don't think I will be signing up again!
    Glad I just use a shitty generic email for sign-ups.

    It does... But you have to really rape it to reach the free user limit.

    Merlins isn't as good as it was... I don't like the new layout.
