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 Feature Requests sorted and summarized

This is a short list of feature requests for Phex. I sorted it according to what I think most important. Feel free tpo discuss it in this thread and to add new feature requests in here (I'll put them into the list, then). I partly cathegorize simply by intuition, but I hope this is no problem

Info: Bug reports should go to: Bugs at sourceforge.

The three cathegories stand for:
a) Profile: Feature Requests, which are on the wishlist or have not yet been done, but seem important, and can be used for PR. What can set Phex apart.
b) Backend: All those parts which improve the general inner workings of Phex. The harsh reality behind the Look and Feel (the GUI).
c) GUI and Polish: As opposite of the Backend, this is about all those things, which imporove the feeling of the User-Interface and the usability for the User, often withhout offering significant "objective" advantages (else than maybe a few clicks less work), but often make the difference in the first choice of programs.
d) Other: There are always things, which defy cathegorisation.


The List moved to the Wishlist in our wiki. It's far easier to manage .

I would like to see a option to open musicfiles with the default external player from both the library and upload screen.

I'd like to have the Settings screen to accept commands to play MP3, OGG, MPEG files with my favourite players

By the way, I've been using xMule, eMule and GTKGnutella, and I've found Phex the easiest and fastest installation in linux so far!

I'd like to see an option to run Phex without the Java GUI as a daemon on Linux. Somewhat like mldonkey and mutella.

A Web GUI would be used to access Phex.

- Connection Preferencing: Min number of Phex-connections, max number of connections by one vendor; different settings for leaf and UP-state.

(source of this Idea: gtk-gnutella)

My wish list:

Ability to generate and export statistics about uploaded / downloaded files.
Something like in Bearshare.

Ability to disable GUI.

Ability to run multimedia files inside PHEX via user specifed external program.

Ability to connect with all selected favorites hosts, not only with one host per click.

Didn't see it listed as a feature or a request:

Partial File Sharing (Helps on larger files)

Also, I'd like to suggest that the main Phex developers take over support for I2Phex. Last I heard the main I2Phex dev (sirup) was MIA.

PFS is already included in Phex (swarming + PFS) with the addition of intelligent segment selection, which downloads rarest segments first.

For i2Phex we'd have to know, how many changes have been made, and if we can integrate the source-code seamlessly.

It could be quite much work, and the i2p-people don't want i2p be widely spread as of now, afaik. So we'd have to make i2phex invisible in the gui, till they decide, that the time of i2ps dawn has come.

Besides: the main devs are GregorK (doing a hell of great work here), I'm only doing a part-time job where I can .
Sometimes other devs add their contributions

Do you have experience with i2phex?

See, I read the swarming feature list, but didn't see PFS in it. Suppose most casual browsers don't really care about that feature

I have some experience using I2Phex (I'm not a coder tho). I agree it shouldn't be spread around at the moment, and this is not an advertisement for it by any means. I just have heard the the guy who did the main work on it seems to be MIA. I thought the devs of mainline Phex could at least capture and preserve his changes. I would not expect you to release them yet or anything, but I'd hate to see his work get lost I understand his changes could be very vast and difficult to integrate.

Anyway, this is just a suggestion. I understande that the developers will work on what they want to work on, and I encourage them to so they stay happy Keep on enjoying yourself fellas.

THe Filter System, now i understand now it works. but there is other filter i hoping it could be add to Phex. the Filter is similar to LimeWire.

I want a filter that filter out the search result i just put in the blacklist. Sometime i know some tend to pop up with lowest KB i know (about 120 Kb to 1MB) is a possible a virus and i know some of them is a virus by a keyword.

I would like to have a filter that filter out. What you think. i dont mind the Phex Filter result, but i rather to have LimeWire Filter system too. it very useful to me to filter out the result that i dont want it to appear on the result list
