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.

Exclamation Problems with uninstall

My dad told me to uninstall Limewire, because there is a chance of getting a virus and if the computer gets a virus, he could lose his job because 90% of it requires our computer. I tried to uninstall it, but I kept getting this error:

From what I understand, it's still trying to load up, though I went through the control pannel to uninstall it. I really need to get rid of this error and get Limewire off my computer. My dad's getting really close to not letting me get on the computer.

The way to uninstall LW is Start > All Progs > LW, click & take the uninstall option. You could try to install a new version (this will automatically uninstall the old one) & then uninstall that one the right way. When you had LW installed before, did you have a problem with it popping up all the time & not staying closed??
Try doing as I suggested, if it doesn't work then try using the computer's search & deleting all LW files. After this, if the message still pops up then it sounds like you have a virus. But don't panic, you can go to Norbiesworld, register & follow the directions for free computer help.

It's really important to scan every file that you download with your AV program before opening!

YES limewire got virus into my computer and it took me a LOT of effort to fix it at last so I strongly disencourage the use of limewire I didn't have problem uninstalling limewire..so perhaps you could try deleting any file with associations to limewire. Deleting it's files will prevent it from loading. There may be times when the files can't be deleted, so what you could do is restart your computer in safe mode and delete them I don't know if it'll work but after I uninstalled limewire my computer is working beautifully - except for a few hangs / freezes at times

I don't mean to be rude, but if you are so against LimeWire and against the use of it, why are you here?

And that includes posting multiple times telling people not to use it as you did yesterday. lol I couldn't see anything constructive about any of those identical posts. That's hardly helping.

Yea, I can't agree more. I don't think what I'm doing is very constructive as well. But that was only twice, not multiple times, if you would do the math lol but anyway, like I said, I'm outta here, and I guess I'll only come back when I have problems with Limewire - If I ever use it again (which I most probably wouldn't). I shall stop lingering around giving advices that are not constructive and helpful at all - honestly that's just a waste of my time and a waste of you guys' time to read my pointless posts. And since I'm not helping at all, it's up to you guys if you want to take my advice. However I shan't disgrace myself here anymore, anyway

But one last advice (not asking you to quit using LimeWire), if you guys ever have any problems, sign up in http://www.norbiesworld.co.uk. he's good.

So, I decide to do a good deed to Gnutella forums. I may come back, or I may not. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Good luck.
