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'm not exactly sure who is my ISP, but if you give some examples of it i'm sure i can tell you. All I know is that I use an Axesstell wireless modem in my house. I got frostwire from the frostwire website and to my knowledge I have not installed or updated anything circa the time it stopped connecting. Is Limewire or any other Gnutell networks having the same probs? If so, it probably is the ISP.

wouldn't know to be quite honest...since others (birdy and garbagefan2) were helping you last night, I though I'd give a little info as to your ISP (since I'm a SuperMod I can see your IP addy and research it)...

a call to your tech support might be in order....and if you have already installed the new Internet Explorer 7, that perhaps might be the cause...I for one am ignoring said update notification until they get the bugs hammered out of it, so I don't know if there is any effect it has on gnutella clients

I doubt that i installed IE7 being that I never use IE (I'm a Firefox man), but if i do call tech, what do I say? "Well, I'm having trouble with my p2p program, which is mostly used to ilegally download songs." Won't they send the feds on me. I mean, there's nothing else wrong with my internet. Another interesting fact, i stil have frostwire installed in another desktop that I have i my house under a completely different ISP: Liberty Cable Links. Frostwire isn't working there either!! Even more curious, my sister uses limewire (which i have been told was being ******* down by the feds, therefore changing to frostwire) and that is working just fine. the firewall blocking icon isn't even in the bottom bar. And it's in the same computer, same ISP!! Quite a mistery, I might say...

"all' wireless devices use internal NAT firewalls. So you have a choice of port forwarding or using UPnP if your device supports it.

I find your statement confusing ... 2 isp's in the one household ... yet your sister 'can' connect on same computer but "you" can't. Are you taking us for a "ride" or what. In question 11 your answer was "no" but now you're saying yes. So which is it? I'm not sure I can be bothered with being stuffed around like this. Good luck in your endeavours anyway. Go to another forum & kid them around & stop frigging us around with time-wasting rot. Or otherwise top lying to us. I'm delisting myself from my subscription to this thread anyway. I've got better things to do!

I for one wouldn't be surprised if its:

1) a specific virus to kill LW/FW programs

2) the result of not using a firewall and having been 'exploited' by the MAFIAA

Hi Cootmaster, I recognise you from the FrostWire forums. I received this personal message from Birdy:
"There's this explanation for the flood of FW connection problems over the last week or so:
http://www.frostwire.com/forum/viewt...hp?p=3147#3147

I don't get it though...if the FW host cache is 'stale' fair enough but I don't understand how it can go stale. The host cache gives out IPs, I presume from any Gnutella client...is this a finite list of IPs (ie not changing as new ultrapeers are found day by day)?
If it's a problem because of FW not releasing a new version for so long, how can people still run ancient LW versions successfully? I see really old (4.0.8) LWs around all the time. And ... my FW ... but it still connects as well as ever... "

So I'm not sure myself, this could be so. I would have thought that being the case that a simple deletion of FW prefs folder should fix the situation but it hasn't.

I'm sure FW probably isn't too far from bringing out a new beta but I haven't heard any feedback in that regard.

In the meantime, if you're brave, yes but why not try out the LW beta http://www.limewire.com/english/content/beta.shtml which has some very nice improvements. A summarised description of changes can be seen here http://www.limewire.com/english/cont..._history.shtml

After all, both the LW & FW devs are good mates so to speak & so should the communities. We try to support each other.

Edit: wow I am slow posting ... 2 posts have gone by before I finished my post. lmao

Double-edit: all 3 versions of my FrostWire connect nicely. I just double-checked.
