Mostly all Index sites have closed their registrations due to the massive amount of users looking to relocate. Even invite only sites have suspended ALL invites until it cools a bit. Depending on your needs I would recommend a Sickbeard/CouchPotato/SABnzbd setup, since the Sickbeard index is still up and snatching it's a good backup and just use for fill in random items until this blows over.

After it blows over look for an invite from: DogNZB or

I managed to register with, I'll see how they go.

But I'll try the sickbeard suggestion. Thanks.

I only really need it for TV shows.

Hollywood needs to take a chill pill on piracy. Piracy was around a long time before the internet, won't go away because you shut down one or two sites, and they're still making billions.

For personal reasons (not moral), I would like to see better self-regulated share sites, however. Less viruses and less piracy would be nice.
