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.
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.

one bar only...optimum online
I have read several threads about optimum online and connection problems. I have followed the advice of changing the port and have done so, to 64049 it went to three bars for about 10 minutes and back to one.
Optimum online (Brooklyn)
The test for 6346 worked
I am not sure what to do I have tried several methods without any luck. What can I do?? Please help
Apparently they have started monitoring bandwidth usage you are not the first to report recently that after changing ports you could get a good connection then it would drop after a few minutes. This suggest to me they are monitoring all ports and as soon as they see excessive bandwidth usage they are shaping or blocking that port.
If it were me I would call Optimum and ask them if they were going to continue their policy of blocking P2P. If they say they are not blocking or that it is LimeWires problem. I would then tell them that I no longer needed there service and to please cancel my subscription. Their response will probably be why. I would then tell them that I will be getting a service that works with P2P apps. After all there is no reason to pay for something that I can not use. Especially when there are other ISP that don't block or filter P2P apps and that do work with LimeWire.
What if when I say I want to cancel my service, then they say ok fine. But I like having OOL. It's fast and reliable. I just don't like that they're blocking p2p sites but that's no reason for me to cancel their service completely. I might not sound like a die-hard Lw fan and I apoligize for that, but I would like to keep my OOL as well as have Lw but if I had to choose one, it would be OOL.
To me it wouldn't be which I preferred. It would be the fact that I pay for high speed Internet and I am not getting what I paid for. There are allot of other choices out there that don't limit what you can use it for. They give you what you paid for. There is DSL which is very competitively priced with cable. Just one question why do you need high speed Internet so that a page loaders 4 sec faster. Well you can do that with 512k DSL probably for less money and use LimeWire at the same time.
Thanks Grandpa, I did not call because I don't want to terminate my service since I have a package with them and since my LW has a full connnection (though it still lags but works) I am going to monitor what happens. I appreciate your time
Does it say anywhere in there service agreement that you can't use P2P. If it doesn't then they are not supplying the services you paid for and unless they do they can not charge you a termination fee.
Okay I have some progress...I use port 64049 and it is all green and the "mysterious firewall" goes away but make sure you are not behind AOL's mcaffee firewall. I was and disabled it during my trial and error I am trying to find a solution to have it enabled and use LW so there isn't a problem between them. Good luck let me know if anyone finds any solutions thanks
