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 Too many results' Part 2

Thought id open this thread, as my problem sounds different from the issue raised in the other 'too many sources' type thread.

Basically, untill a few days ago, when i searched for a song, limewire would bring up around 250 or so finds (talking about the number on the tab, next to the title of what you've searched for. Now it brings up a number litteraly in the thousands. At first i thought, oh wow lotsa soources But then i chose to download one of those files and it just sat on connecting for ages then need more sources.. It does the same for basically all the files i could download apart from the ones with very few or no sources.

Has a mass attack on the gnutella network been unleashed? I.e. loads of fake sources or something. Or is there another problem either my end or on the network.

Oh and btw, i have version 4.10.9 (so the latest one basically) i had the same problem with the previous version, thats why i got the newest version, thought it was a bug fix for instance..

Has anyone else had problems like this? Hopefully someone can help.

Tom

To me it appears that the Gnutella net may be being attacked by one or more of the anti piracy companies out there. I have been seeing more of this type of post recently. I have found a couple of software programs on the net that used to have 300 to 500 search results then all of the sudden have 20,000. To me this says servers are suddenly showing up with 1000s of copies of files are they any good? I don't know I haven't tried to DL any of them and I wouldn't. This is either a sting operation designed to track people or a flood operation designed to make P2P virtually useless. You might want to check out the links below one is about this type of behavior. The other is one of the companies that does this type of thing advertisement.

Hi, hmm, ive been doing ok, ive found it depends what you search for, if you just type in 'primal scream' you get loadsa of these fake sources, but if i do primal scream - loaded. You get more specific results which download fine.

Until this problem stops/gets fixed with an update, think all any of us who are suffering this problem can do.. Just sort by number of sources and choose one from the bottom of the list lol!
