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.

Cool How to download Magnet Links

Since version 3.8.10 LimeWire supports magnet links under linux. Here is how to download a magnet link:

1. Make sure Limewire is running and connected

1. In your browser, right-click on the link and select "Copy Link Location".

3. Switch to Limewire. It will ask you whether you want to download the magnet uri.

4. Press Yes and enjoy!

This works with mozilla/netscape/firefox and konqueror. If you use a different browser, the steps should be similar.

Exclamation (Blue Texted URL) Mag Links

I realize this is an old post but I wanted to give back a lil .
There's a Reg file that'll assosiate Limewire or Frostwire with the (Blue Texted URL's) known as Mag-Links located at the bottom of each Bitzi webpage & for those who don't know what Bitzi & Mag-Links have to do with Limewire/Frostwire then please read on.

If You go to & search for the 2009 movie "**" You'll get a search result much like that at Google. It'll display a list of links & each link leads to a webpage. Only difference is these links take You to webpages that contain Ratings & a Mag-link for that particular movie.
Your supposed to be able to Single-Clk on the Blue Mag-Link located at the bottom of the page to auto-launch the download process of the movie "**".
However this is where the problem arise's because without setting the proper Xp-file-assosiation (Your P2P app will never auto-start the download process)

Anyway a Reg file to fix the file assosiations can be downloaded here> MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service The Reg file is in a Rar pkg, & once decompressed You'll see 2 files, one named Frostwire & the other Limewire, choose the one named after Your P2P app & Dbl Clk on it, at which point You'll be promted by Xp to merge the data from the Reg file into Your Windows XP Registry,You choose Yes!
Make sure to scan the Rar file with Your AV & preview what'll be merged into Your Reg by opening each file with Notepad

Sorry Pointman, but we can't allow the names of copyrighted files to be posted... looks like condoning copyright infringement
Rite-Rite Good Lookin Out, Thanx!

So Long and Thanks for All the Files

Beware of the big 3 insurance companies in Texas! Read your policies carefully (maybe you'll need a lawyer) Allstate, Farmers & State Farm are overextended and their 'coverage' is worthless...a true waste of your money Read This
