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.

Question Options Screen does not show all needed fields

I just downloaded Limewire for my Mac Powerbook running system 9.1

When I open the Tools - Options window to set up my preferences, the right edge is cut off in the middle of the button that says "Use Def," which I assume is, if it showed up completely, "Use Default."

As part of the same screen, for example, while I can see the sentence, "Days to keep incomplete files," the field into which I would enter the number of days is not visible at all.

This sort of behavior shows up in each of the Options screens.

As far as I can tell, the screen can't be stretched and I have tried different screen resolutions to see if that might solve the problem.

I wrote to Limewire to ask if their "Pro" program, which I would have to pay for, would solve this and only got an automatic response that told me to try posting to the forum.

Can anyone help me out with this problem.

Exclamation So, how can you set up options?

So, if Limewire Pro doesn't fix this problem, and Limewire Pro is supposed to be the best program for the Mac, how the heck am I supposed to use the program?

Do you know of any way to get the folks at Limewire to actually communicate with their client base?

I'd be glad to give them the money if the program would actually work on a Mac as they say it will?

By the way, thanks for the reply.

Default yes I have the same problem

unfortunately in the version beforehand this was not a problem, but now it seems to be. Let's all wait for the next version and hope they fix the bug, because i cannot even turn on my chat! Also the program is slluggish and seems to be programed with the same language Netscape ist, for both have the same colours, the same sluggish behaviour and crash quickly. I wonder what language they use.

Default LW 2.2.4 Pro Options window

This 'options' window snaff and others first appeared in my LW 2.2.4 Pro...

Please check the full text of my reply posted for this problem (no answers)
and some other questions
in the 'CrossPlatform/installation/Mac' forum...
(the same thread is posted there);

I thought that it was an 'installation issue.

Thank you

PS...Is there a way to 'copy' my messages to one forum and 'paste' it into another forum?
My traditional (Mac) methods don't seem to work.
