Is it reliable and easy to use?


The End...

It is with our regret to announce that NZBMATRIX had closed.

We have had to make this decision due to a very large takedown request from a company called Wiggin LLC. These represent the following: Federation Against Copyright Theft Limited ("FACT"), Paramount Home Entertainment International Limited; Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Limited; The Walt Disney Company Limited; Twentieth Century Fox Film Company Limited; Universal Pictures (UK) Limited; Warner Bros. Entertainment UK Limited.

As everyone is aware we are DMCA/Takedown notice compliant, and always have been.
Once this notice is completed we are left with an impossible task of policing our indexing bots. Even then it won't stop there, there will be follow-up notices etc.

Coupled with this is problems with payment providers, we have been through pretty much everyone out there, in the end they all pull out.
There are massive server/bandwidth costs to pay, with the payments in-stability this is a very hard task.

NZBMATRIX has never been the subject of any legal issues or threats.

Also the Usenet Indexing scene is going through some changes, with content being removed from pretty much every provider its making the existence of an indexer irrelevant if the content does not even exists anymore.

So it's time for us to bow out...

Can't comment on how reliable it is just resigned up, but it is simple to use the problem you will have is if your looking for something called "<edited - read forum policy>" and the poster only labeled the upload or files themself something like "<edited - read forum policy>" then your stuffed as SS will not find it so maybe some uploaders in the future will make uploads easier to find, also SS does not search EVERY group (which is big minus IMO, it only searches a set number of groups, maybe admin will fill you in on number) but who knows.

The number of groups being indexed can be checked here :


If you miss a specific group from the index, mail support and they will add the group for you.
bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.

Has SS been updated to pick up and restore missing headers and posts when it fails to grab them?

There have been plenty of times (search the forums and postings) where indexing of various groups have missed entire subjects, days, and in a few cases over a week of postings and yet those holes still existed last time I had checked.

I was wondering if this has been improved such that if the indexer misses several hours/days/large numbers of posts, does it eventually retrieve them now or does it still leave blank spots and holes?


Seriously wish the missing features of local search and the features that have been broken/removed from local search but left in or in some cases improved on the SS would be fixed/restored and improved on local search.
