Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default The Question Is Pure Sarcasm

PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ASKING IF LIMEWIRE IS LEGAL. AS IF IT WOULD SOMEHOW BE EVEN BETTER IF IT WERE. IT'S A STUPID QUESTION. I KNOW IT'S QUITE LEGAL. BUT I WOULD USE IT EVEN IF IT WERE NOT. AS I HAVE TOLD GLICKMAN MANY TIMES. SO PEOPLE NEED TO STOP ASKING SUCH A DUMB QUESTION. THAT'S WHAT THE POLE IS FOR. JUST FUN. EVEN IF LIMEWIRE DID SUCK,AGAIN, I WOULD STILL USE IT.

i think its pretty good , but it dose still have its problems. i like it because it has more content and its the onley place i can find lossless music and its faster than moast others ,so i say its best for performance. but the gui is a little dry and it dosent have built in chat and the free vershion pops up a nag window every time it starts, and it refuses to start maximized . but in spite of these things its still the best performance . it allsow has lots of little xtra featurs and settings that are nice .

but if ares p2p was faster ,had more content ,and had lots of lossless music i would say ares is the best.

I really only use the application for music, that's my passion, but to answer your question, hell yeah, it rocks! A couple of my friends are using Ares, I haven't checked it out because I haven't had the need to! To me, it's like going into a huge record store and playing whatever you want! A DJ's wet dream! Thanks all for sharing!

it dose ahve built in chat but its verry simple anf you can onley talk to one person at a time.

ares has over 2000 rooms you can go into and you can talk with a whole crowd of people at once. you can hoast your own room. and several other things that LW dosent have. but i still like LW best cuz its faster and has more content. and the gui can be changed with skins...i forgot about that...oops

well alot of things in limewire are currently changing (LW is still in its development infancy). and some of these features (like DHT/Chat and *cough*LimeWire DHT/Instant Messaging*cough* and DHT/BT support, DHT sha1 requeries. etc) are currently underway and are being developed as we speak. skins? hmm, i think LW could do alot better in that department, but atleast the core is powerfull and very fast and optimized.

cant wait to start beta testing these!!

Lots of things are changing indeed. LW in its infacy? LW is now over 5 years old But the infrastructures are in place to let a slew of new features coming in the next year... But you already know that, as I do.

Ciao

yes, i believe the gnutella network itself is in its infancy. i know that it could be alot more efficient than it currently is.

(damn that hamburger looks good, it looks like a quarter pounder w/ cheese from mcdonalds mmmmm)

seriously it does suck.
lossless music? VBR MP3 is just as good.
IRC XDCCs are way faster.

limewire will be closed like grokster, the first napster, etc. because it flies under the radar with the "no piracy"
