There are catches and we don't want you having too high expectations for now. To be blunt, we've been struggling to understand the site code & systems. The backend is way more complicated than we realised. Some of it is busted and some services we don't know how to operate fully yet. We are working hard but we thought, based on comments on the http://deepsharer.wordpress.com/ blog, that it would be better to run a partial Newzbin clone now rather than leave it for a couple of months until we do grok it all. Understand that things are likely to be a bit wobbly for a while and stuff may well fall over, but we hope to kick things into shape soon.
We dont have a functional payment system in place yet so the site will be free for a week or two. When we get a credits system running we will be respecting the credits you have left over from Newzbin.
Obviously we hope that you editor administrators and editors will remain with us as you are truly valuable: all users have the same status they did when Newzbin shut down as we didn't alter anything. Obviously if you no longer wish to be an editor your status can be changed.
We'll try and answer your questions in the comments.

Requests for SSL support noted. We'll try top get this working ASAP.
One old editor has had a problem but I'm hoping he's all.
Newzxxx.com not yet working but we are on it.
editors: there seems to be an issue with some new report being set to a 'Frozen' status. Not sure what that's about yet. Looking at the issue but please keep creating reports and we'll manually unfreeze in the interim.
