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 rpm version?

It looks like filecloud.io sold out or switched domains, and the new domain just hangs on file downloads, and 4shared.com doesn't work for me (countdown timer never budges). All of the newer downloads I see that do work for linux are Debian only. Is there a valid place to download LimeWireOther_4.18.8p.zip, or any plans on making an rpm version of WireShare? I tried grabbing a snapshot from Sourceforge, but got the following error when I ran "run":

Error: Could not find or load main class org.limewire.ui.swing.Main

Thanks.

The LW 'Other' versions can be found here on GoogleDrive. In recent months I'd been swapping to GoogleDrive because FileCloud has become very unreliable, losing files a month after uploading/hosting them due to non-backed up 3rd class disk drives (probably found in 2nd hand markets or worse.)

I don't know if FileCloud is being ambushed/hijacked temporarily by a Chinese owned site. I haven't spoken to their support about this yet.

Off-hand I don't know what is required for systems that prefer the RPM/Other version (BigJx might know). It is possible to unpackage the DEB version as an archive. You didn't mention which Linux you are using.

Not an ideal approach, but this is one crude way to run it:

/Desktop/WireShareLinux-v5.6.4.1/usr/lib/WireShare/runWireShare.sh

Edit: From LW's original instructions: If you are using this from the LimeWireOther.zip file, you can launch LimeWire by typing:
sh ./runLime.sh
Just adjust this for WireShare.

If you cannot connect, delete the gnutella.net file from the ~/.WireShare folder whilst WS is closed. Then start WS up again.


I can mention the RPM concept to Big_Jx. But not sure when the next version will be released. The WireShare project could definitely benefit with some help from other persons. Edit: My research suggests LW stopped using RPM before 2006 and instead simply supplied a zip file instead.

FileCloud will become Ezfile by end of year. https://filecloud.io/ezfile.html. I've used their services since 2006 under the original FileHo name.

You might be selecting the wrong option with 4Shared (also need to be registered and logged in with 4Shared to download files.) I confess it's become confusing lately to know which link to click. 4Shared download instructions here, ignore all the other larger download buttons you see.

I'm a Wireshare project admin and I will raise this point with everyone.

Why don't you create a SourceForge account and help out yourself? We're always looking for new project volunteers. Email me at *email address removed* and I will add you to the developers list.

A rpm version of WireShare is now available at SourceForge. Also, the snapshot you downloaded is only the source code. So, if you want to use the run file to launch WireShare then you have to compile the source first using Ant.
