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.

How can i get and pay Pro?
Hi Bob,

LW seem to have restricted the credit cards that people can use to buy or renew LW Pro, so have a look at FrostWire. It's very similar to LW, is free & has many Pro features. Click on the blue link below.
FrostWire

Or, if you like, you could try another free Gnutella client, as mentioned in post #6 of this thread.

Default you are out of luck

It seems to me if Limewire wants to make money they better get their moerators to let them know they are missing alot of sales by not taking MASTERCARD OR USING PAYPAL.

They need to join the online people with ways to pay for their product.

Paypal is a good safe way for all people to pay atleast Limewire could get that set up.

WAKE UP LIMEWIRE DO SOMETHING!

You know BC

Back in the dim and distant past (about 5 years ago), unless my mind is playing tricks on me, the LW Org. used to accept Paypal and Mastercard as methods of payment.

I'm guessing that, as Mastercard has become the dominant (world wide) credit card system, the LW Org. has run into some sort of problem based on the fee they are charged by Mastercard.

You see, credit card companies charge a fee to the companies that use their facilities, maybe the LW Org. now think the fee is too high.

But, I must admit, I agree with you and that the LW Org. should use Mastercard's payment facilities because they could be loosing more than they save.

I've found out Mastercard made themselves unavailable to LW to use for payments. It was not a case of LW dropping Mastercard as an option. Same issue happened with Paypal 1-3 years ago. These financial organisations decided they did not wish LW to use their services for payments.

If you read the thread, then you would have seen this. But I will spell it out for you and the next several people asking the exact same question.

We have Zero, zip nada, 000 control over what kind out credit/debit cards Limewire LCC i.e. NOT Gnutellaforums.com allow!!!!

LW developers & staff don't post here, but you might get a response over there.

If they want people to buy Pro then they should be listening to potential customers!

Don't forget that there are other good (free) p2p apps that also use the Gnutella network... check out the links below for more info

FrostWire

Phex

BearShare
If I didn't think of Mastercard as a highly professional and lucrative business, I would think they had stooped to the levels of spamming forums for more business.

Except it was Mastercard who decided they no longer wished to do business with LimeWire LLC. If it was LW who dropped M/Card then fair comment.
