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 Adding files to Library, sharing/unsharing files LW 5.2.8+

If you're updating to LW 5.2.8 from an earlier version of LW then you may find that the only files that appear in LW's library are files that were being shared in earlier versions.
And files that were previously in My Library but weren't shared with the P2P network may no longer show in LW's library, so you'll need to add them again.

Or see the info below...

Clicking on the My Files icon will show the sidebar, where you can see LW's Library, Public Shared, Private Shared & whatever lists you've created. Files in Library aren't automatically shared with other users. Public Shared lists the files that you're sharing with the Gnutella network (so that they're available for download by other users). Private Shared lists the files that you aren't sharing with everyone but might share with friends if you use the Friends feature.

Different ways of adding files & folders to Library...

1. Click on File > Add to Library. Browse for the folder or files that you want to add.
If adding a whole folder, highlight the folder that you want to add > click on Add to Library.

2. Click on Library & click the '+ Add Files' button.
Browse for the folder or files that you want to add.
If adding a whole folder, highlight the folder that you want to add > click on Add to Library.

Name:	add folder to library.jpg
Views:	1262
Size:	65.0 KB
ID:	4995

3. Use your computer to find the folder or file(s) that you want to add & then drag the folder or file(s) onto LW's Library icon or onto the Library page. If dragging files, they'll be added to the list straight away. If dragging a folder, a dialog box will pop up asking you what categories you want to add - choose the file types that you want to add & then click add.

Highlight a block of files by clicking on a file & holding down the shift key
until you reach the last file that you want to add. Click on Add to Library.

If adding files that aren't grouped together, open the folder & click on the first file. Hold down the coltrol key (ctrl) & click on all other files that you want to add. Click on Add to Library.

Default Sharing files with all other Gnutella users

If you want your files to be shared with all other Gnutella users then those files must be in the Public Shared list.
Click on thumbnail to enlarge image
Adding files to Library, sharing/unsharing files LW 5.2.8+-public-shared.jpg

To add files to the Public Shared list, either

1. Click on Library > right click on a file > Add to List > Public Shared.

Or

2. Click on Public Shared > click on the + Add Files button > browse for the files or folder that you want to add > highlight the files or folder > click on the Add File(s) button. See point 3 in post #1 if you aren't sure how to add a block of files or a group of non sequential files.

Or

3.
Use your computer to find the file(s) or folder that you want to share. Drag the file(s) or folder onto the Public Shared page or icon. If dragging files, they'll be added to the page & shared straight away. If dragging a folder, a dialog box will pop up asking you what categories you want to share - choose the file types that you want to share & then click Share.

Default Removing files from Library & unsharing files

To remove files from Library...
Click on Library. Right (control click for Mac) click on the file that you want to remove > remove from Library. The file will still be saved to your HDD.
To remove multiple files, see post #1.

To stop files from being shared with all Gnutella users...
Click on Public Shared. Right click (control click for Mac) on the file that you want to stop sharing > Remove from List. The file will remain in Library but won't be shared any more.
