Popular Usenet Indexing provider Merlin’s Portal appears to be back online and rebuilding their index now. We don’t have all the information at the moment but for a while Merlin’s Portal was linking to another NZB Portal website which eventually linked to jfen.co.uk.
Here is the text pasted on their website – ( Paraphrased )
Merlins Portal has been rebuilt from scratch. If your an old member come on in and join and catch up with old friends.
Merlins Portal is the same as always, NO information restricted, NO money required to use the site. FREE is FREE in our book.
New look same ethos, same principles & morals.
In the few days we have re opened we have took in 1000’s of new/old members & 1000’s of NZB files as we rebuild or NZB library.
Good reputation is why we succeeded before and why we will again and why 1000’s use us then and now.
Hopefully see you on the other side and not just as a guest
It appears that Merlin has had to rebuild the site from scratch and that old membership information was not maintained. I logged in and it was nice to see a friendly Usenet community.
