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.

Mirror 1: From a GoogleDrive folder here. GoogleDrive instructions here using LW as an example. (Easiest option!)
Mirror 2: FrostWire versions, choose from a folder. But you need to be registered at 4Shared to download from this folder.


If the .NetworkShare folder inside FrostWire preferences folder should add a file for share it...You can easy disable the sharing of the file by click "Library" and go to the left side of FrostWire and click on "Individually Shared Files"...You should find the file there and click on the file for so choose "Stop Sharing file" and thats all to do!

If you can't find the FrostWire prefereces folder, use this trick here:

Click on "Start" and click on "Run", now copy and past this code here:

Code:
%APPDATA%\FrostWire
Then click "OK" ,now you are inside in the FrostWire preferences folder!


VIP Info: If you see in connections window of FrostWire this client here LimeWire 4.21.1 (rc), just remove it before you do any search because it is a spam bot! Likewise for any LimeWire 5.1.2

wow I agree to no auto-update. Such a dangerous tool. We saw what happened with LimeWire & its auto-updating tool after LW 5.5.10.

And who needs or wants advertising or toolbars especially without their permission installed on their system. Some people or companies sell themselves out. Does anybody care about the client users hey ! ?

Getting marketing phone calls from early morning to evening & even on weekends. hmm why does it remind me of the 'unclean' FrostWire they offer at their site. Glad to see a clean version.

Although I no longer user P2P as I used to back in the old days, I still like to dabble occasionally with Frostwire.

So, I think I will download this, when I get home tonight, and give it a try.

Tell me, do either of you guys know if this new installation of FW will overwrite my old version but keep my current settings?

It should keep your old settings yes. But will probably uninstall your previous FW program. BTW you will get an update notice about a newer version, click cancel on it. At least it does not auto-update without your permission.

Auto-update is such a scary tool. God knows what the newer version may have in it, also what bugs. This applies to any program. I often like to check user feedback reports about the updates on some programs before 'choosing' to update. Especially if it's professional software I work with for a living.

I don't think my installer would uninstall your old version of FrostWire by default, but it will use your setting where the preferences folder is on your system! If you install the new version on the same directory and same plase where you have the old one it will only overwrite it if the files in my installer is newer then the FW you have installed before...What you can do is take a backup of the old version before you install the new one, so you could easy restore the old one with out have to install it again so to speak!

Guys, thanks for your info, I will install the bundle free version of FW over my current version.

I'll let you know if it goes wrong.

PS. File_Girl71, I may still do a backup before performing the installation.

BTW, you're miss understanding the "auto-update" feature. It's more of a "auto-download-the-installer" feature. The user can decide wether or not to start the installer.

What is wrong with the usual optional "available update" notifications, which thousands upon thousands of programs have no trouble using?

It's always had one like that but a lot of people get lost into going to frostwire.com and downloading the installer.

What we can do to address any of the concerns of auto downloading and helping seed the installer is to put an opt-out setting

[x] Auto download the latest installer for me

If they have that off, they'll just keep getting the old message where they can manually go and download the installer from the website.

Since FW closely followed LW's code, did it include the same auto-update features which could potentially be turned around at any point in time to do what FW wanted (under pressure from ...) After all, this is one of the concerns. Auto-update could easily be turned into an update into anything, might even end up installing lemons or elephants or RIAA remote controlled items or other spy items.

Below is LW's forced update, user had no choice other than to force quit the program. Changing from voluntary to forced update is obviously easily possible with the program update code / concept you have put in. Users will become accustom to it without realising the potential dangers, until one day suddenly, their program is hijacked & no longer works because FW was forced to give them a non working program. That kind of control I'm sure most users would prefer to keep to themselves rather than have it forced upon them. Choice of updating should be up to user, if they wish to stay with v. 4.x then they should have option to turn off update messages. Nobody likes nags on programs.

I must say, I am highly confused as to where to find the Update preferences in Frostwire 4.21. Where is it hidden may I ask?
(obviously not in same locations as LW 4 or 5. LW had a special preferences location for update preferences.)



BTW if what I suggested is incorrect, then my apologies but the gnutella community needs to be clear on this. Is FW setting themselves up without realising?
