We are back again with another collective open signup update – this time with 10 more direct download link forums that have proved to be widely popular amongst our reader base. As some of our regular readers might know, this article is a recap of 10 most recently featured DDL sites on FILEnetworks Blog. Todays’ post features lots of niche sites including those specializing in lossless music, cartoons, horror movies, international magazines, foreign, non mainstream movies, scene MP3 music, eBooks and more. Not all of the listed sites are pure DDL forums though – there are some sites modeled after release blogs as well as a site that’s a hybrid of a DDLF, torrent tracker and a FTP host. All forums listed below are currently open for signup and are accepting new registrations - updated statistics, links to registration URLs as well as links to full site reviews are included with each entry.

We request our readers to have a look at the full site review before registering for a particular site. Full review has all the information you need including screenshots, content details, internal encoder group info (if any) and will help you decide if you really need to become a member of a particular site or not. Hopefully this would reduce forums getting filled with would-be-inactive members who signed up just because they can :p
