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.

Well, I'm always happy to see developers interested in their users, so many of them seem to be developing only for themselves and don't really care about any elses problems or needs from a program.

The biggest issue is the inability to rezise the boxes horizontally at the moment becasue again the scroll bar on the right in results can not be seen, strangly enough though the check boxes in the filter rules magically started working today.

Thank you for your time and consideration as well as a fine project.

Is it possible, that today, you selected a search before trying to select the boxes near the filters?

Thanks for your input!

Gregor, could they be made clickeable by default and then apply to the next started search?

Best wishes,
Arne

What I figured out is that they have to be turned on for each search and can only be selected after you started the search, which is somewhat useful, though I personally think it would be nice if they could be set for all searches, since I would venture to guess that if you wanted something filtered it would be for the majority of your searches and easy enough to disable for the minority of them.

Just a thought, again thanks for your time and consideration on these issues.

You can click on 'Edit rules...' and change the 'Permanently enabled' setting of a default filter to always enable it.
I created this Wiki article for more info http://www.phex.org/wiki/index.php/Filter_Rules_Dialog
Would be great if you could extend any of the article in case you have some more input that might be usefull to others.

So, most of what I suggested before has gotten implemented, which is GREAT! Thanks so much, it makes Phex that much more useful and easier to work with.

Of course, I do have some other suggestions below... The ones with ** were asked for before, but not implemented and still would be great to have.

ALL tabs: Keep highlighted selection highlighted, and focused in window. E.g., in DOWNLOAD tab, I highlight one or more files, and then sort the list by [any]; currently highlight disappears, all selections should stay highlighted, and also focused in the window, unless the selections span multiple pages [up or down].

General: Ability to change font size and colors, especially for queued files. The current green is a nice color, but too light [sometimes I can't see it if my screen is tilted just slightly back].

SEARCH tab: Need ability to continuously search, or to specify amount of time to search. Current default is much too short. Also to re-search once a new Ultrapeer is connected to.

**DOWNLOAD tab: Need ability to specify, simultaneously for multiple files, 'retry candidate(s)' and 'search'. Perhaps 'retry all candidates' and 'search for all files' buttons. Even better, a default to automatically re-search for files every N minutes which have fewer than X candidates.

DOWNLOAD tab: ability to search for files, much like the fabulous filter mechanism in the SEARCH tab. I have a few hundred files in my queue at any one time, and often find that I have already downloaded a particular version [or close enough] of a file; it'd be nice to be able to find the other versions without paging down a dozen times or more.

SEARCH tab: ability to ignore certain files; for instance, after downloading one version of a file, I want to be able to mark all versions of that file to ignore them. This would be best in the right click menu. Also, along with this, the ability to not just lighten the font of the previously downloaded files, but hide them from the list altogether. Both of these should be options, not defaults.

Other: ability to 'pause [and resume, obviously] ALL downloads' at once. For dialup users, this would be a great thing because sometimes we need to do that to check email, do webbrowsing for a few minutes, etc. Doing these things while downloading is extremely time-consuming, which, for dialup, is saying a LOT.

I like the idea of limiting searches to specific countries, or regions. Since Phex can show the flag of the country I'm connected to, could it then also limit the results to whatever region I specify, or filter out results from one or more particular countries/regions. This could be potentially be implemented in the 'disconnect policy' in the Settings.

**SEARCH tab: ability to filter strings using regular expressions. Currently only able to filter out strings with no whitespace.

Odd bits:
SEARCH tab: does not [and should] stay sorted when switching between searches.
Dragging & dropping in Windows Explorer causes Phex to blink off and on.

And I'd certainly be a willing tester for new versions and such, help out however I can if necessary.

Hi clampak,

Could you specify some questions more exactly?

Both of these should be options, not defaults.
By which can you recognize different versions of a file?
Or do you mean, being able to mark any file and set it to be hidden?

This could be done by connection preferencing (mostly connecting to nodes from that region) or by starting a search with the node from that region, I think.

Besides: Would you like to add your Wishes to the Wishlist yourself, or should I do it?

And by the way: If you're interested in the future devlopments of Phex, you can find a a Roadmap in the Wiki

And aside from that: no, I don't really have a third addition

@clampak

First of all I really like to thank you for your nice and detailed feature requests. They are really well thought of and practical solution oriented.

Unfortunatly all the "automated search" or "massive search" requests fall into an area which Phex will not offer in the near future, because of bad experiences we made in the past when Phex and others were doing automated searches and almost caused a network break down doing this. We dont want to burn our fingers with it again and risk to get banned out of the network for it.

Gregor

Default PopUp window when no network connection

(I'm not in sf right now, so I chose this way)

Pleasse show a PopUp window, when phex realizes it has no network-connection, so users see that it stops trying to connect for a reason.

Best wishes

Greetings!

First of all, i want to say that phex is an amazing gnutella client!

But there are a few things that i miss, and one that i don't like.... :'(
Things I miss:
*- In the search results, it should be possible to filter the results based on the country where the other client are. It also should be possible to connect to other peers just from you country. (some ISP's in Portugal descriminates the national and international traffic- Fortunately thats not my case ).

*-When searching for music we should have an option to filter based on album, artist... (like limewire)

Things I dislike:
*-In the search, i don't like to have to click in the "new search" button every time i want to make a new seach search. I think that by default it should be always a new search.


By the way, this is my first post in this forum. Hopefully i didn't break any rule, but if i did, sorry!

Best regards!

Hi Manifest0,

Firstoff: Welcome to Phex!

Your ideas sound useful, even though they aren't all easy to do...
searching by track/artist/album quite a bit of work (we need to implement metadata readout, etc.) and making new search the default raises the question where to put "direct connection" and "What's New?".

About filtering by country, you'll have to wait for our main dev to come back
Should be doable, though.

Have fun with Phex!
Arne
PS: How did you find Phex?
