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 LimeWire Bounces In Dock and Disappears? Look Here!

[EDIT] 3.6.15 is live and will automatically take care of these situations for you. [END EDIT]

This will happen if you first installed 10.0, then upgraded to 10.2 without installing some specific packages. We are in the process of revising our installer to fix this (and some other) issues. In the meantime, you can continue running LimeWire one of two ways.

The best way, if you still have the OS X installation CDs is to pop the first CD in and navigate to:
Mac OS X Install Disc 1 -> System -> Installation -> Packages -> BSD.pkg
and double-click to install that package.

Alternatively, you can go to /Applications/LimeWire, ctrl-click on the LimeWire application, choose 'Show Package Contents', open on the 'Contents' folders, ctrl-click on the 'Info.plist' file, choose 'Open With', choose 'Other', scroll down on the right and choose 'TextEdit". Within TextEdit, find the line that reads "<string>prelude</string>" and change it to "<string>LimeWire</string>". Save the file, close TextEdit.

After you've done either procedure, LimeWire should open as normal. We'll be releasing a new installer soon so that all this isn't necessary if the user didn't have BSD installed, but for the existing installations these steps are required.

Thanks,
Sam

Default Followed your instructions, still doesn't work

I followed your instructions and LimeWire still won't launch. It just bounces in the dock and then nothing happens.

First I installed the BSD package and that didn't fix it. Then I altered the line in the Info file and that didn't fix it either.

I'm running Panther on 1.5Ghz Powerbook.

Please help. Thanks!

Hi djscoobyd,

Could you please open the 'Console' program (found by going to Applications -> Utilities -> Console), try running LimeWire again, and paste back here what is reported in the Console?

Thanks,
Sam

Hi again djscoobyd,

You received this error with the latest installers (3.6.14 or 3.6.15)? To be honest, I have absolutely no clue what would cause this. It looks like a borked Java. Have you by chance updated Panther to 10.3.1?

Thanks,
Sam

I just downloaded the LimeWire upgrade again off of CNET, so it's definitely 3.6.15

Still having the same problem.

And my Panther is up to date. Version 10.3.1

Is anyone else experiencing problems similiar to this (with the same console log)?

While I cannot be sure it will fix it, I recommend that you follow the steps Apple has outlined at http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2099.html to fix a faulty Java installation during a Panther upgrade.

Sorry for the trouble, I'll continue looking to see if I find something that mentions this error.

That fixed it! Anyone having the same problem should follow the instructions for reinstalling java on the apple site.

Thanks for your help!

Actually I managed to fix it with the alternate method (installing the package from the mac os x cd.) Thanks for the help!
