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 maximizing my upload

Hi everyone!

Been reading through the forum topics and found a lot of usefull tips. Still I couln't find the answer to my biggest question, so I'll post it here.
I want to maximize my uploads. I would like to share ALL my music. I thought I did this by sharing my main music folder. Still I noticed lots of uploads get comments like: "file not found".
Within my main music folder I've got lots of music tucked away in other folders, mainly sorted by Artist.
My question: could it be that uploaders can't access music that's in folders within folders? And if so: what to do about that?
I've started adding lots of folders to my Sharing File-list, but still see the 'file not found' comments.

Someone have a suggestion how to share all my music?

Tamarindra,

I just joined limewire and was wondering the same thing that you posted here but I don't see any replies to your question. Noticed that it was posted about a 11/2 years ago. Did anyone ever answer your question ?

In my experience, 'file not found' appears when you move your files around. Limewire doesn't know where the file is. Make sure you've added the new location to your list of shared folders. You may need to exit and restart Limewire...otherwise, Limewire may think that the file is in the original location (not sure). You should be able to share folders within folders.

Does this help?

Dan

I don't think it should matter. You should still be able to share all of your files. For example, if you share your 'My Music' folder, and all of your subfolders are in there, you should be sharing all of your files. You can verify this by noting how many files are in the green oval at the bottom of the Limewire interface.

Great, I was just concerned that since there are a lot of searches showing up and so far as I can tell no uploads that I had done something to restrict access. Wanting to to my part and not marked as a freeloader.

Do you have a brick wall in front of the blue globe at the bottom of the Limewire interface? Sometimes there can be a firewall issue, with you capable of downloading, but with uploads restricted.

Do you ever see any activity in the 'Monitor' tab?

Look in the LW library. Each file should have the number of successful downloads and number of download attempts listed (i.e. 17/30).

I am firewalled, monitor tab shows constant searches, under the library tab it shows 0/0. I saw one posting that talked about "pushing" my IP address but didn't say exactly how to do that. Maybe no one wants whats in my shared folder?

If you want to resolve the issue, we will need more information:

System details - help us to help you -> Provide these details when you post!!!

If you're sharing anything remotely popular, you should see some upload attempts. If you want to, try downloading something that you know that a lot of people would want. See how it goes.
