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.

I've noticed a few times when I'm queued for a download, I'm sitting in position 1 and the software is counting down the seconds to "retry the connection." What happens next is that it says, "Connecting..." then "Host busy." This seems a bit like getting to the front of the queue for a really busy night club, then getting out of the queue to walk away somewhere and ask a bouncer if you can get in, only to be told "queue up like everyone else." You almost invariably lose your place in the queue and, if the host is busy enough, you lose your chance to connect at all. Is this auto-retry an essential component to the network's operation, or can Phex be made to just quietly assume that it'll get to download the file when the host is ready?

Eek

Also:


This looks to me like spamming of the search system... perhaps more efforts by the same quasi-legalised terrorists supported by the US government... I tried banning some of the addresses in a search, but noticed that they continue to show up again and again. Perhaps Phex could introduce a method of banning hosts from querying; I'm not sure exactly how the query system works under the bonnet, but if Phex-based ultrapeers aren't passing on these queries, entire sections of the network might be far less taxed and potentially able to share their data more efficiently.

I don't know. Is it always one specific vendor/version where this happens?

About the spamming... Its very difficult to detect this kind of spamming. Phex already uses various filter method to detect and block spam messages. The problem here is that the spam is most likely not coming from the IP displayed but is just routed through that host... Currently we have no method to block this kind of spam.

BTW, would you like to try to use the Phex release posted here:
Phex still alive?

It's more of a general thing, as far as I can see. I used a paid app years ago, I think it was called eTomi Pro, where I saw the same thing happening from the other side - certain addresses queued to download from me would disappear for a split second at a predictable interval and then re-appear at the back of the queue. I don't think that one displayed software vendor, though, it's been a long time. But when I started seeing Phex counting down then re-connecting in exactly that manner, I watched it for a while and it happens with every file I'm queued to download.

Always an issue... of course, me being me, I didn't like to just ban a host based on searches, so I browsed them before banning and all five of them were sharing the same spam files. At that point, any concern I had about blocking legitimate hosts went straight out the window. It looks like at least some of them aren't intelligent enough to IP-spoof when they spam.

I meant to say, by the way... the .143 version seems to have a few glitches in the labelling:

<removed image>

That's the only bug I've found so far, though - it otherwise seems quite superior to the "stable" version that can never download files any more.
