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 GTK-Gnutella and BearShare 5 similar (mis-?) behaviour

GTK and BearShare 5 appear to have some things in common. Not good things from one point of view. I consider GTK to be the most advanced Gnutella client, yet some aspects of its behaviour hint at either old technology and/or poor gnutella manners to say the least.

I'm one of the very rare people who instead of spending my time viewing downloads or search results, I spend most of my time viewing uploads. I share a reasonably large number of files. Yet I don't consider myself a good file-sharer. I don't like to see misbehaviour or greed among hosts downloading from me.
If I feel a host has already downloaded enough files of a particular type for the session (usually over a small portion of that time), then I will restrict that host by reducing upload slots or speed or both. (I usually exempt music files unless it's extreme.) I suspect most people don't take notice or much care of their uploads.

The Issues:
I've noticed GTK and BearShare both have something in common. BearShare will often appear to only be downloading one file at a time but each subsequent file begins instantly thereafter. Usually no queueing at all. Which makes me wonder if that person is really selecting the downloads so coincidentally & instantaneously after the other finishes or the files are being queued for download on their client side but not in the uploader's queue. GTK appears to do the same thing. However GTK will also download multiples at once.
The Demon:
The downloads finish & the next starts so quickly that other hosts files waiting in my upload queue never get a chance to start their downloads. GTK might take all available upload slots & the cycle never finishes leaving other hosts waiting forever in the standard queue.
The Demon's bite:
So it appears I may have a very greedy host. If I change upload speed or reduce upload slots, this appears to make no difference. GTK (and BearShare 5) will continue to download at the rate they started their very first download at.
Extreme measures:
Ban the host. Makes no difference. The BearShare or GTK host continues to download more & more. Only a 3rd party ip blocker stops them. Something I use very reluctantly. I cannot say this is true 100% of time, probably 90% of time the GTK or BS host ignores the changes from the uploader's client on the other side of the fence.

It's almost as though GTK has its own non-Gnutella technology that by-passes standard Gnutella listening rules (and queueing rules.) (I remember Morpheus being a bad host for respecting uploader's queues. But this is a little different. Morpheus was a queue hopper that appeared to somehow bump each host just above it in the upload queue off the list one by one every 30-120 secs or something. Those bumped off would return at the bottom of the queue.)

I've noticed this issue using both LPE & WireShare on the uploader's side of the fence.
The BearShare issue I noted several years ago to a couple of moderators who were BS users who probably thought I was crazy.

Downloading issue:

If ever there's a host struggling with downloads (usually videos), it's often a GTK host. Almost as though they're using an old technology, but that is obviously far from the case. lol I can't remember the specifics though I've seen it a lot over the past year or so and many 'different' GTK hosts. This issue is different to the queueing issue, there seems something wrong with the GTK client side's download abilities of large files from WS/LPE.

I'm not expecting anybody from GTK to take notice of this post (too busy with g2?) but thought I'd make a note of it somewhere. Perhaps someone else 'not' using GTK-Gnutella has noticed the same thing.

I was not sure where to post this. So if it's not appropriate location, ask a Moderator to move it.
