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 Download Issues

Hey Lee,

im using Lime Wire Pro 4.12.3 and i have a T1 connection, windows 2000 home edition service pack 2, 2Gb of free space,Intel Celeron CPU 2.4 GHZ 736RAM. I hope thats enough info to address my problem.

Alright my problem is that when i download a file regardless of what ever from music to Video, it starts downloading from 9-10 hosts usually 10-25 kbps, but for the pas few weeks it has been downloading from 7-10 hosts for a single file at only 1-2 kbps some times even 0 kbps? and it takes like forever to download a 5000kb file which use to take like a split second. NO firewall (im saying this based on the globe icon without a wall on the bottom left), health of connection is TURBO-Charged always and upload has always been zero by Default. Hope You Can Help. Thanks Lee

Have you only just done a system restore & found this problem, or has it been a while since you last used LW?

Try deleting the LW preferences folder (when LW's closed), see points 2 & 3 in the thread below. This will kill all of your settings within options, you'll have to reset things afterwards:wink:

If that's no help, post back with your details. Check the thread below to see the info we need

Firewalls: standard windows firewall and Norton antivirus 2006 but both the settings are set to allow lime wire to connect and there is no Globe with a wall icon on the bottom left.

RAM: 736

Connection Type: Broadband 100.0Mbps

Modem and router: Aztech DSL600E

LW/Java Version: LW 4.12.3 PRO, JAVA 1.5.0_08

Download a file from here & see what speeds you get

Who is your ISP?

Are downloads with Azureus also slow?

You may want to do a speed test 100.0Mbps is allot are you sure it isn't more along the line of 100kbps or 100KB/s. You can do a speed test at the link below. Then check with your ISP and see if they are shaping if you have already deleted the preference file.

That speed of 100.0 Mbs has something to do with the connection speed between your cpu and your modem(LAN speed not internet speed). Mine says the same thing, but my advertised speed is 1792Kbs/448Kbs. The actual speed is a little slower.

Default Lw not connecting.

Hey Birdie,

Yesterday i was downloading slow (0-1kbps) then after i deleted the preference folder(.limewire), i made a new search and a few files were downloading at the speed of 8-11kbps and 2 were downloading at 30-54 kbps. Today when i tried to run lime wire it just cant connect, it starts up goes from poor connection- turbo-Charged then Disconnects straight away, and its still the same till now, anyway i did all the test i was asked to

Magnet mix, i cant download a file from here. Lime wire keeps opening but cant connect.

As for azureus i dont know if its slow or not coz its my first time using it, it ranges from 288 b/s - 15-30kbps sometimes.

My isp is : Tmnet Streamyx

Hey Grandpa,

i did the speed test and this is the results

Description: Filesize Time KBytes Kbits
Download Speed: 1025.73 6.75 155.91 1247.28

and on the RPM meter it reads above 1000RPM by one bar. (At 500 RPM it says DSL cable) but above that there is no spesification.

Hey 6_Pac,

Thank For The Info. btw how do i check my advertised speed?

You could call your isp and ask them. I got mine by typing the ip address of my router into the the address bar of my browser and hit enter.

Try entering 192.168.2.1 into the address bar of your browser and hit enter. It should list the DSL Connect Rate (Down/Up).....I got that from the port forward page for your router here: http://portforward.com/english/route...E/Limewire.htm
