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. 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.

Why is gtk-gnutella not working for you? - man if you wanna check if gtk-gnutela is not working you can try to install ubuntu and then install gtk-gnutella - run it and you will see that IT IS NOT WORKING - I don't know why and I don't really care why - I just "can't find any working open source client for ubuntu."

Phex is open source, can be obtained here About Phex

LimeWire is supposed to be open source. OldDeath would be able to say if ShareAza is open source.

Shareaza is open source.
And BTW, only because I've asked you a question, there is no need to become rude... Maybe I should ask differently: How is it not running? I mean, is it not connecting, not downloading or is the program not starting?
We might be able to make the program run for you, if you are more cooperative.

mfg,
Old

PS.: There are thousands of people who seem to be using gtk-g on ubuntu, so it is highly improbable that it doesn't run at all on ubuntu powered systems...

On that topic of GTK, I've been using GTK on OSX on & off past couple of months & connecting fine. Even as an ultrapeer. I believe Birdy has had similar experience on Windows. But there's been several GTK updates over 12 months I believe. Which is great. The development on GTK went quiet for a while before that. Great to see there's enthusiasm back in developing GTK, it has a lot of pluses in my book. Particularly when run in advanced mode. Some of the options leave some other gnutella clients for dead.

GTK has a force-update approach. If you don't update your version won't work.

On a side note: We're currently developing a new client with the name of Quazaa. It will be (once finished) a cross-platform alternative for Shareaza. For now it's in pre-alpha state, however we're looking forward to our first alpha release soon, as the first network we're implementing (G2) is speedily approaching maturnity and some other functionalities (such as the security manager or the library file manager) are also almost finished.

So in case anyone is interested or still looking for some fresh client able to run under ubuntu, have a look.

Sounds interesting to hear. Good to hear new developments. And cross-platform also! Linux/variations and Mac often lack the choices of applications like those available on Windows.

Have a look at Quazaa|The multi-network cross platform peer-to-peer client! then!

BTW, we'd welcome any developer wanting to join our team. We could need any help that is provided.
