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.

arne_bab is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel
Default A simple Gnutella tracker + fileserver (in Python)

Hi,

For a long time I wanted to create a Gnutella tracker which serves as centralized alt-loc resource, but I only now have the coding skills to do so


-> ArneBab / gnutella_tracker / overview - bitbucket.org

"A simple file-tracker for Gnutella You can put files into the 'files' folder which then are made available via magnet links with alternate locations. Also it implements the x-alt protocol to learn about more alternate locations."

If you just want to test how it works, the magnet on the following page should allow you to download a test picture, as long as I keep the server running (not quite sure how long that will be...):

- http://edrikor.dyndns.org:8000/

To get the source, you can either use Mercurial

Code:
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/gnutella_tracker/
or just get the current snapshot:
-> http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/gnutell...er/get/tip.zip

Just start it with

Code:
python gnutella_tracker.py
You can then access the server at http://127.0.0.1:8000
Please tell me if/how well it works for you!

Best wishes,
Arne

PS: The reason for creating this centralized fileserver is to have a first source of data, similar to what BitTorrent trackers provide. Also Communities can form around fileservers (it's easy to disable the serving of files and replace it with just storing the metadata).

PPS: This tracker is currently only tested with Phex. I don't yet know if/how well it works with other programs. If the magnet-download works, please tell me!

Cool, have you checked Freebase by chance? This should be very similar (and also working for gnutella clients, BTW). It also offers the possibility to show a little picture in forum posts containing magnet links showing a counter of the file downloads etc.

mfg,
Old

Jupp, I know (and like) freebase, but I wanted to create a hybrid filehosting and Gnutella-connecting server - and I wanted to write it in Python

I'm not yet sure, though, if the alt-loc exchange works as it should (needs testing). What works nicely is updating the magnet link with up to 16 xs-sources of downloaders, so you always have first sources.

You might want to create a sync between both systems...? Like this, in case a Magnet link has freebase.be as "magnet tracker" included, users of your tracker can also profit from it - and vis versa.

That shouldn't be too hard, yes.

Do you know the freebase dev? (I didn't have contact for years)

Would it be OK for him, if I'd add freebase as default xs? It could create some load on his server...

Freebase is maintained by jonne. He can be normally found on the #Shareaza or the #Shareaza-dev channel on P2PChat (IRC), so it should be relatively easy to find and contact him

I'll get in contact if I should get to work more on my small server. Since we already have freebase-enabled magnet links in Phex, implementing it isn't that hard to do - but I first want to get his OK.

I really don't know what function does the tracker server own? How do other Gnutella clients know your server

The tracker url is included in a magnet link. Users who click on that link will get the IPs of others who clicked it, so they do know sources to download the linked to file from.

It’s about providing first sources and static sources to plain magnet links. A kind of kickstart tracker
