Long time readers of FILEnetworks Blog would be familiar with our collective open signup updates for private torrent trackers. Each month, we post an article with summarized information about notable private trackers that were frequently reviewed on the blog. However, we’ve been writing about a lot of Direct Download Link (DDL) forums lately, in addition to private trackers. Since we don’t post summarized updates for DDL forums, some of our readers seem to have missed out on some pretty cool sites that were covered here before. In the hope of alleviating this problem, we’ve decided to feature collective updates for DDL forums as well – this is the first of a series of articles that revisit the some awesome forums that were covered earlier on FILEnetworks Blog. 11 sites are featured in this round – each of these specialize on a specific category such as EBooks, Documentaries, Cartoons, Magazines, Games and even Comics.

All of the forums mentioned below are open for registration at time of posting. Statistics were lasted updated on 16/2/2010. As usual, please take the time to read the full review (when available) before joining to see if the forum really has what you are looking for. Also, note that most of the sites featured here require you to register and log in for the downloads sections to get unlocked.

    I think that you need to check and see, my understanding is that flood insurance is available. One of the problems that the public may encounter is an agent that has not been to flood insurance education to sell it. That might have alot to do with it.. I think he said the other day that 33% of the claims for flood, were not in the flood plain. But, most people will not buy due to paying another premium….
