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.

How do you explain that Limewire achieves maybe 10-15% successful downloads when a PC running Kazaa sitting on the same desk, at the same time, searching the same Gnutella network
Kazaa does not connect to the Gnutella network, period. Perhaps that might shed a sliver of light on the difference in results. That is all.

Default Same file being uploaded multiple times by same user

When I look at the library section that shows uploaded file with results like 98/99 or 1/2 or 0/2 and only rarely 1/1. When I observe the upload progress bar, it reaches 98% completiion only to disappear and then come back and progress to 98% completion again, over and over sometimes up to 98/98 times

Does this indicate that something is wrong on my side?

These are my particulars:
Limewire 2.7.13
AMD XP 1700+ 1 gig RAM
Windows XP SP1
Linksys Cable/DSL router
Port 6346 forwarded to my computer at 192.168.1.100
Forced Local IP (using my ip address, not 192.168.100)
DSL service 1500 kbs down/ 128 kbs up

This is rediculous. This forum is based on a shoddy self help system. Endless posts about what people think is the reason for a problem and bad suggestions on how to fix it. Not one good answer from the developer. Ignoring a problem doesn't make it go away, and I'm tired of reading back and forth posts which amount to nothing more than a "No, YOUR stupid!" argument.

It is undoubtable that limewire 2.8.5 is rediculously flawed. It is undoubtable that much more than a fraction of an improvement to the download errors can be obtained by the users. Limewire needs to do something about this. I would never register a program when they release versions as faulty as 2.8.5!

Bad form limewire. You still insist that people should download 2.8.5, even though it's very flawed. Why is that? If this is the result of beta testing, I'd hate to see that beta. With the recent lawsuits against p2p software, and bad luck, I can understand a rut, but you absolutely must do SOMETHING about this. At least post a reply letting us know that you are doing something to rectify 2.8.5!

You want a response to this inane drivel? How about this: you're all too stupid to use Limewire. Please uninstall the program immediately and subscribe to AOL.

That is all.

All of you, wait for the next version, it comes with many, many exciting new features and maybe some new bugs to talk about. I'm a little bored by all this "Could not move to library","Can't upload", "Can't download" and "Can't connect" complaints. There is no solution for them at the moment and the LimeWire developers are aware of your complaints.

Thanks Trap_jaw: you've proven your right to speak by trying to help. Finally, someone with some credibility has said "it's a problem and will be fixed."

Please make this a sticky:

Please also use your inside contacts to get Support to finally respond so we don't have to be told our ignorance (readily admitted) is stupidity. I noticed Sam was given a few bucks in appreciation of his work. You too, I hope.

I doubt my "inside contacts" are really that good. I'm just reading the developer mailing lists.

Oh I see--you were being sarcastic when you said said the developers were aware and something is being done.

Silly me.

no he wasn't. the developers are aware, and are discussing problems on the development mailing lists, where contributers (like trap_jaw) are also active.

You misunderstood.

You said: "Please also use your inside contacts to get Support to finally respond so we don't have to be told our ignorance [...]"
I answered: "I doubt my 'inside contacts' are really that good." meaning that my contacts aren't good enough to get LimeWire's Support or the LimeWire developers to respond. They aren't really very communicative at the moment as you might have noticed.
