More Detail

The service is based on vBulletin. You can sign up for a free account at the site’s homepage and explore what it has to offer.

NZBGrabit does not actually host any files. The site is designed to index the public USENET system, making it easier for users to locate NZB files in which they may be interested.

NZBGrabit is similar to an online forum, with all of the information you need logically divided into categories. Uploading your own NZB files only requires that you enter the appropriate section of the site, click on the appropriate link and fill in the information. This should make it very easy for users to share NZB files with each other and to keep the site lively.

Community participation at the site is already strong, with a user of the site having made the tutorial videos hosted on YouTube. If you want to take a look at how the system works and how the uploading process is designed, you can watch the video and see for yourself.

The vBulletin script was modified by the site creators to make it more suitable for uploading NZB files. For some users, this may give it a bit more appeal as a place to share these files. The vBulletin script is used at other NZB indexing sites, as well, but, according to the site programmer at NZBGrabit, those sites have modified the script as well to make it more suitable for their purposes.

NZBGrabit Rewards System

NZBGrabit has added a rewards system on the site so for every post you make you are rewarded with one point and each point is worth the equivalent to 1p in value so if you buy the 1 week £1 pack and get 100 points built up on 1 week (make 100 valid posts) you can use them to get an extension on your pack without actually spending any more… this is to help increase the community side of things.. also if you go above and beyond on anything like helping someone out with something no one else can, or just generally helpful around the site and with the community a mod can reward you with extra points which you can use to get free VIP.

Conclusion

We like NZBGrabit. Specifically we like the active and friendly community, being able to pay via credit card and finally the good selection of NZB files makes them worth considering. The only possible downside is that NZBGrabit cannot presently be integrated with automation software such as NZBGet or SabNZBD.
