NZBGeek offers a forum and a USENET indexer. The USENET features are Newznab based. The site launched in 2014 and is still going strong. The site describes itself as a “positive, forum-based community” and continues to develop features and gain members.
Donating to the site makes you a Very Important Geek (VIG). For the cost of becoming a VIG, you get quite a lot.

While you can join and become more of a part of the community, registration at this site is open. The developers aren’t interested in becoming an invitation site and, as a nice extra bonus, NZBGeek doesn’t carry any ads.
The index on this site is updated every ten minutes, providing fast access to NZBs as they become available. The developers are still growing the site and their attention appears to be applied equally to the indexing features and the community features.The site’s indexer is referred to as GeekSeek.
The developersare more concerned with the community than they are with being the largest NZB indexing site out there. If you want to network with people, this might be a good NZB site to consider.
When last checked, the site was running on a 4-CPU server with 2GB of memory. It provides a 100MB pipe. The hardware is located outside of the US.
Ad-free and allowing open registration, NZBGeek is attractive right from the start. This NZB indexer really concentrates on fostering a sense of community among members. It updates its indexes every ten minutes and has numerous filtering options.
The membership options are inexpensive and offer a lot in the way of increased access to site features. This site isn’t trying to be the biggest NZB indexer out there—and it’s not—but it does have some very nice features built into it and the people behind it seem to be genuinely interested in constantly improving what they have. The site provides value for the money in both the forums and the indexer.
