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 WireShare released for Linux and Mac OSX

* WireShare has now been released for both Linux and MacOSX.

The Linux version has it's Security installed via a separate installer. Choosing 'none' in the security installer will remove any previous security installation.

MacOSX: At this point in time WireShare has been tested with Java 1.7 & Software Update will ask you to install Apple's Java 6 (1.6). The program has been tested on an intel Mac with OSX 10.6-Snow Leopard and OSX 10.9-Mavericks (combination java 1.6 & 1.7 but ran under java 1.6).

WireShare  (formerly entitled LimeWire Pirate Edition)-java-6-required-osx10.8.png <- MacOSX Java restricted to Java 6 for WireShare. (Snapshot taken on Mountain Lion)

OSX compatibility: @ Intel with OSX 10.5 or higher with Java 6. @ Older machines: OSX 10.6 or higher with Java 6.

Edit: WireShare for OSX can now use Java 7 or higher (aka Java 1.7 or higher) as of WireShare 5.6.4. But will use Java 6 by default if it is also installed.
It took over 2 weeks to get a java 7 version working for both jre and jdk but to get it to work with both java 6 or later took more time to solve.


Note: The MacOSX installer is Applescript based & does not use a postflight script (does not create a Receipt file), and WireShare is 'unsigned'. This might cause some issues for those whom use Gatekeeper. You will need to make an exception for WireShare in Gatekeeper's settings.

(Articles regarding making exceptions: Unsigned OSX apps, . . WikiHow - Install from Unsigned Devs on Mac, . . Shortcut to install unsigned apps, . . Tweak Gatekeeper's settings, . . Apple Support - About Gatekeeper, . . Ways to Get Around Apple's Gatekeeper, . . How to open apps from an unidentified developer whilst maintaining Gatekeeper.)

Default Mac OSX version update to fix memory issue

WireShare 5.6.3.1a has been released specifically for Mac OSX users to fix a memory issue. The program was not reading its memory settings properly (or at all) and with little doubt was probably using the default minimum java memory possible. WireShare 5.6.3.1a fixes this issue.
Compared to LPE, WireShare's memory handling capability has been increased slightly.
Edit (12 May): WireShare 5.6.3.1b enhances memory efficiency. Looks like LW forgot to use this. Which is probably why LW5/LPE was unreliable to use for multiple day sessions on OSX.

Extra note: a specific OSX 64-bit Java 7 capable WireShare will be worked upon in the coming month. Compatibility will be limited to intel machines with Lion or higher, and will only run with Java 7 (1.7) or higher. (Edit: we made it to work with Java 6 or higher, so compatibility still allows OSX 10.5/.6 Leopard & Snow Leopard users to use WS.)


If anybody finds any issues running WireShare, please report them to the forum so a solution can be worked through.

Definitely something to consider if you are fed up with LPE 5.6.2 I guess?

There's no compulsion to upgrade to WireShare 5.6.3. However, there are notable improvements. There's also no need to use the LimeStart which LPE needs to either overcome Java 7 path issues or the risk of the connection file being erased if not used after 28 days. WireShare has fixed both those issues, as well as a few other bugs & inefficiencies LPE had.

Perhaps it's just my imagination, but I seem to get better search results with WireShare. I've tested certain keyword searches for years to test how good the peers I'm connected to are. Getting over 200-300 search results then a single get-more results for 500-700 on different sessions I considered good compared to some miserable results on LPE or earlier versions of LW. To compare fairly, it seems the average of reasonable search results that appears to have improved. Always exceptions.

I won't drag into possible reasons for this compared to LPE such as less direct connections to the very old type clients that are much less efficient at handling search queries, particularly via UDP (if they are even capable of UDP query handling & responding.) If not, they resort to tcp.

WireShare and GTK-Gnutella are both very good. GTK has some advancements in technology. However, WireShare is much easier to learn to use.

Why does the files now have usually only 1 peers? I hate to wait with 9-20 kb/s download speed
