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.

Sorry Sam and trap_jaw--my mistake. I appreciate that you guys contribute solutions and generously try to help. Those like me who are users and want to share our files need to know where to look for solutions. I'd thought these forums were the place.

Should I be trying to read the developer mailing lists?
Should I watch here for a response from Limewire?

Thanks for any answer.

Respectfully--Stief.

You are welcome to read it but I don't know if the posts will make much sense for you at first, unless you have some basic programming knowledge. But don't worry, I didn't have that either when I started reading it.

However I have to warn you, the dev mailinglists are not very exciting at all. If you are looking for all kinds of cool insider infos, it's probably not the right place to go.

Btw. I'm just about to write a weekly news flash about LimeWire development in the open discussion forum.

Thanks trap_jaw
http://www.limewire.org/project/www/MailingList.html is the place to start, I assume. Real info beats "cool insider" stuff anyday.

You computer boys do run on so with that fancy jargon...

Had 2.7 - got music.

People came on with 2.8 and killed me dead.

I got 2.8 - don't get music.

Same computer, same server, same operator.

You've got problems.

See how easy that was.

Actually you are the one having problems, because you are the one who cannot download any music. Unless you are able to describe your problem beyond "It doesn't work", it might very well stay your problem because I did not experience anything like that.

just fyi stief -- if you want to use the web archive to read any old stuff, don't be put off by the fact that it doesn't list any new posts after december. it's just a problem with the webserver that handles those pages (and the thing is too fragile to mess with), so just hit view all' [or whatever the actual link is] and scroll as needed.

Default Not so sure...

Actually if you were just a bit less computer savy and more up on the english language, you would see that the problem came about for me with introduction of 2.8.6.

You know, the one you don't even use any more?

Read more, post less.

I am far from the only computer dullard that got up and going with the old version, no sweat, and have had the bottom fall out with this supposed upgrade.

I didn't pay for it, so who really cares - but others did.

They have begun posting too.

This is a shared network with shared problems.

If you want any of music, tough crap now because I get frustrated and quit far more frequently now.

"REQUERY" over and over and over and over...

It is our problem - but I obviously can do nothing to fix it except point out when it fails. (I write books for a living not programs.)

Later, much

Angus

ah! Thanks sam. Luckily trap_jaw's summary here probably saved me hours of reading. I still plan to browse there more as time allows. Looks like "magnets" is the magic word for us on OSX. Now I have to find out what it means, and an OSX programmer!

BTW, I was reassured to see the Limewire team is active there--I was afraid the silence here since Christmas meant bad news for the company, and good news for those who would like to shut down these kinds of networks.

I don't write programs for living either. If I had to, I'd probably starve. So if you want me (or one of the other open source developers - the LimeWire developers are already busy improving things) to help you, you have to be a little cooperative and give us a few bits of information like if you are seeing any error messages or what operating system you are using - maybe even give a short description of the problem.
This post tells me at least that your problem is related to the requery mode. I assume that most of your downloads go into requery mode without ever finishing. Okay. There is no quick fix for this (except for searching for that file again which might help occasionally), this issue is being addressed, wait for the next version since it will change the network topolgy to improve searches & downloads.

So long you could simply use another p2p client: There are eDonkey, DirectConnect and OpenNap clients for nearly every operating system (including MacOS). For windows there is also Kazaa and Piolet. Switch back to LimeWire when it has become better than the rest.
