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 Is gnutella community still alive?

I don't see much activity here.

Is there someone still interested?
Is there any p2p client developer?

The Gnutella Forums (GF) is still actively used as a reference site but there's minimal (almost rare) posting from users. For example, if I post a link to a program patch or a connection installer, it does not take long (a day or within days) before there's lots of downloads. I suspect people are a little shy about the GF & think it's somehow linked to LimeWire.org (LW) & the authorities which of course is not the case because it's independently owned & no information about GF members has ever been compromised. If it had, I'd have left the site a long time ago, and the other moderators feel exactly the same. Our privacy and the protection of the privacy of members is of the utmost importance to us.

7 to 8 years ago there might have been anywhere up to 20-odd new posts a day. Now it's lucky if there's one new post in a month or two.

As for Developer Discussion, well the GDF became even quieter several years ago. The old developers kept a low profile & still now, some are no longer committing to their program. GTK-Gnutella is an exception & came back out of the woods a few years ago but all their developer discussion is (& always has been) limited to their GTK SourceForge site.

Not sure how often any GTK devs pass through the GF, once in a blue moon I guess.

There just does not appear to be the interest in open source p2p projects like there was last decade in regards to offering some kind of input, testing or developing.

Active programs? GTK-Gnutella. WireShare (Bigjx is the only actual coder).
I've noticed a couple of LW4-clones silently get updated now & again though I've no idea what changes they are making because they still do not support DHT or TTL. I also never see them (LW4 clones) on GWeb sites. Their default gwc sites are long out of date.

I'm actively developing my GWC in this period so if any p2p client developer need a particular feature it is time to say it

I had an interesting idea that come from a document found over the internet, a sort of prioritization of IP near the IP of the requesting client, teorically near IPs are also near locations (not all cases but many since they are probably assigned in groups) and this probably speed-up connections since they trying to connect to near hosts.

For the ones that create LimeWire mods it would be good if the switch vendor codes from LIME and provide a correct User-Agent otherwise they may be blocked.
Many LimeWire mods use LIME vendor code and this is confusing, if a small mod doesn't want to create a specific vendor code I suggest LIMM as generic LimeWire mod vendor.

I noticed LIMM listed in the fake-clients list, so is that wise? I don't know where LIMM originated from.

Several LW-4 Clone programs use LIME as their vendor code. At least one or more don't which probably causes problems for them connecting (such as to GWC's.) Since LimeWire, FrostWire, Cabos, & WireShare are the most popular clients on the network and reserve a certain number of connections for those with LIME vendor code (however most of the LW4 clones either include Wire or Lime within their name.) Definition of LW4 Clones is here. The LW 4 Clones are all GWC based programs, having never upgraded to UHC, DHT or TTL abilities AFAIK. Their connection & other data files are usually the tell-tale sign of this.

According to the LW/WS code, locale is usually prioritized where it's applicable.
//move the connections with the locale pref to the head of the lists
//we prioritize these disregarding the other criteria (such as isGoodUltrapeer, etc.)

My code automatically switch vendor from LIME to LIMM when it detect a mod in some ways, they aren't necessarily bad; then I block bad mods while allowing other mods.

If you look in the logs then you can see that in the query there is "&client=LIME" but in my detection I set it to LIMM to make clear it isn't the original LimeWire.
My detection isn't perfect but it should be enough accurate in most cases.

PS: I was talking about prioritization in the hosts returned by the GWC.

GWC should have been optional along with a built in UI for adding and removing GWC hosts.

Haven't used Shareaza since I stopped using Windows (2004). I bet the app has come a long way since then.
