Legend (Table Columns Explained)
Under each tab below, you will find an explanation for certain columns in the NZB table above. Self-explanatory columns are not included.
- CODE BASE
Some indexers are open to join while other indexers will only accept you if you receive an invitation to join, usually from an existing member or from the https://www.reddit.com/r/Nzbinvites/ subreddit. Closed indexers are no longer accepting additional members.
Indexer accounts can be free, paid or both.
The columns that follow display the applicable fee, including annual and lifetime, as well as any free account limits. As you'd expect, paid accounts have more features than free accounts.
This refers top the Usenet indexing application used to build the indexer. The vast majority of Usenet indexer sites use newznab which makes building a Usenet community quite easy. Anyone can set up a newznab community and this helps explain why so many of the indexers look similar to one another.
Indicated whether the indexer supports obfuscated Usenet files (also known as stealth Usenet). Read more about obfuscated Usenet files & posts.
