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 Important note for those who have or are intending to upgrade to Leopard OSX 10.5

After speaking to a mac technician, upgrading to Leopard can be thwart with problems. He recommended:

1. Archive Install. ____ Else, 2. Back up all your files, reformat, clean install, then re-incorporate your personal files.

A simple upgrade from an earlier OSX to Leopard can result in internet browser & other problems. eg: unable to access your previous popular sites with your browser. And other issues.

This thread is simply intended as a consideration for those have or are intending to upgrade their OSX to Leopard, not as a hard & fast rule.

Chances are that if you follow the above advice, you will not have any problems running & connecting with LW.

I second that advice and repeat: 'Archive Install' is the best way to go!
Some of the 'connectivity' problems may disappear after the 'Leopard' 10.5.1 update.

You're essentially 'packing up' your old system folder and create/install a fresh 'new' one.
Check the 'Help'-menu for 'Archive & Install' for important info!

Back up any important files to another hard drive, or a DVD, etc!

1.Insert the Mac OS 'Leopard' Install Disc and double-click the Install Mac OS 'Leopard' icon.


2. Follow the onscreen instructions. In the pane where you select the destination disk, select your current Mac OS X disk (your hard drive) (in most cases, it will be the only one available).


3.Click Options. If you want to save your existing files, users, and network settings, select “Archive and Install,” and then select “Preserve Users and Network Settings.” If you want to erase everything on your computer and reinstall Mac OS X, select “Erase and Install.” You can’t recover erased data.


4. Click Continue.


5. Click Customize to select which parts of Mac OS X you’d like to install, or click Install to perform a basic installation (recommended).

After this procedure, you'll find an 'old system' folder on your hard drive.
You can then manually transfer your old preference settings (software registrations, etc.) to your new system. NOTE: Be sure to put those old settings in the same location in your new system folder (usually the 'Library' folders).

and find a tech at your local computer shop or in the ads in the newspaper or somebody VERY computer-savvy, to configure it for you. lt isn't simple. The 1st time takes a while, especially if you have a lot of settings, but after you can do it
in a shorter time, yourself, as long as you DRAG THE ICON TO THE TRASH AND IT SAYS 'EJECT' AND DISAPPEARS. Otherwise, the hard drive and all the time and $$ will be lost and you need to start over from the start with another hard drive ($75) + the time- yours a,nd the experts. lf you don't know how to 'drag' learn how!'
