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 Not Good

I bought this program (Limewire Pro Bundle) last night after unsucessfully trying to reconnect with WinMX.

WinMX is not working at the moment either because their server has been shutdown or they were purchased by Limewire.

Limewire descepitively advertised themselves as a WinMx product if they did not buy WinMx out.

I've used WinMx for years without many problems. I have tried Limewire off and on (mostly off) due to it's unfriendly setup and poor connection to share files.

Ok, I bought this as I thought it was the New (Had to buy into) product of WinMx. Paid over $50 for it. Downloaded it, etc.

It worked for a while last night with little problems (kept asking me to buy Limewire Pro - I SHOULD HAVE ALREADY HAVE BOUGHT IT IDIOTS! - and disconnecting by itself - baloney!)

So, today same crap.

1. Slow connections

2. Repeat cutoffs

3. Buy Limewire Pro pop ups

4. There is no internet connection but still slowly downloading one or two files popups

5. Will not allow me to login to Members Area or Download NEWEST - LIMEWIRE PRO program and customer service in India or where ever the hell they are is off work.

I want my WinMx back! I want this to work!

Limewire still sucks after all these years with a new twist - impersonating WinMX on the Google search engine.

Join the ranks of the scammed my good person whoever you may be LimeWire basic is free and pro is $18.88. Just wanted to tell you that because your post sucks. By the way I used WinMx for many years also and still do occasionally and compared to LimeWire it really sucks.

Default Oh my post sucks huh?

Ok, what exactly about it sucks?

It was advertised as the new WinMx. I took a chance even when Limewire popped up as they could have merged or one might have bought the other.

Support - if you pay close to $60 bucks - it should have support.

Limewire cuts off, pop up bs continuous.

Their site does not allow login to the member section.

It is now downloading files - amazing, I just have to stand over it to make sure it does not cut off.

I might be calling the bank tomorrow to report this scam on my credit card.

WinMx still isn't working - does anyone know what is going on with it. Their website is still down so it might be dead for the longhaul - just want to be sure.

Oh and Gramps, thanks for the *** - istance. Time for the home already.

WinMx has been down for a few days man you were scammed LimeWire has nothing to do with WinMX the link below will take you to the official site.

What was wrong with WinMx the fastest DL speed I ever got with WinMX was 60kb I get 650+kb with LimeWire for one I would say that sucks. I did like MxMonitor for stopping leaches and the auto trade feature and the chat feature other than that it wasn't very good compared to others and MxMonitor wasn't relay part of WinMx.

And maybe you should not have been such an *** in your post without knowing what you were talking about

Default Better but still and attitude ...

Well ...

WinMx did not exit by itself.

WinMx did not have annoying pop ups.

WinMx you could check other's files.

WinMx you could run a monitor program to cut off leechers.

Speed - about the same as this program.

Does not have slow click a button and wait a minute for it to go to next control section.

Did not need a special Java plug in to run.

Limewire is a personal prefence I guess and so is WinMx. If you like the way one runs then you probably won't like the other.

What is this link ...

http://www.musicmembersarea.com/index.asp

I paid $18 or so for the Limewire and the rest of the bundle had some spyware program and a few other things - all told $56.

Whatever ... yep, certain ripoff.

Does anyone know if WinMx is coming back or was sued out of existance or technical problems or whether it is there but it is my machine that has some sort of error?

I do not prefer Gnut based p2p programs or maybe WinMx just navigates it better.

I also miss the old real Napster but ... those days are gone.

Slow but worked as it should.

Haven't seen that site before I don't know. Did you get the pro or the basic version of LimeWire. Did you receive a personal download page from LimeWire that gives you the Pro DL Which version 4.9.30 is the current version. If you didn't get pro and since you said you got no pro support I am guessing not. Contact your credit card company and tell them you have been scammed.You may be able to get your money back. And once you get LimeWire working properly you may like it better than WinMx I know I do and I used WinMx for a long time.

Default Yeah, Definite Scam

This outfit is based out of St Kitts out of some Armory Building there.

The address is ...

winmxdownload.net

... and it usually placed in the advertisement areas of Google.

They give you an Inferior version of basic Limewire, some spyware program, a video player, and a codecs breaking program.

They suck something awful.

They are not the real the LIMEWIRE. They aren't even the real WinMX.

They do not allow access to the real MEMBERS AREA of the REAL LIMEWIRE.

They have nothing to do with WinMx or Limewire.

It is pure SCAM! I am so pissed I am beside myself.
