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.

Okay, I am having issues with the installer. It runs fine until it begins to connect, at which point the message "This installation is corrupted. Please download and install LimeWire again." is displayed. I've searched all over, and I can't find anything to help. I'm running Windows XP. Anything else that you need to know, feel free to ask. I miss LimeWire.

Have you tried File_Girl's installer, found on first page of this thread. http://www.gnutellaforums.com/gettin...tml#post359817. Try right-clicking installer & choose Run as Admin. This might help fix the issue.

-This release of LW Pirate Edition is for Windows OS!
-Have turbo charged connection, but it is no Pro relase!
-Removed the ugly splash screen to LW Pirate Edition...It has a nice one now!
-Removed AVG Antivirus (Useless pail of Crapp!).
-Changed some resource files because of the removal of AVG Antivirus.
-Removed some not needed files like SOURCE, COPY and Flash Player Plugin.
-Repacked the installer so it is a light weight one now!
-Java is seperated from the installer, so it will not download a corrupt Java!
The user must install the Java by them self and use only offline installer ...


Download Offline Java Installer For Windows Here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp


My relase of LimeWire Pirate Edition can be downloaded from here: http://www.4shared.com/file/xxBAl_WR...reWin-562.html

I read that you think AVG is a "Useless pail of Crapp!", File_Girl71 . What other free antivirus program do you recommend?

Hi all.. I am now rocking lwpe... loving it, would be nice to get rid of the intro screen.

Luv it thanks so much I have added 10k shares.. should help the community. I think it is worth it to switch from older versions.

Does the pirate edition tie into the old share network or is this one separate?

Which PE are you using - the original or File_Girl71's version? Her splash screen (if that's what you mean by intro screen) is different to the original.

LWPE connects to the same Gnutella network as ever

I am using pe ver 5.6.2

Actually I got it frum Demonoid. I didn't know about this site at that time.

No it is not the one by file girl though it is tempting to use that one. I am a little concerned that if I switch to that one, I may loose my settings.

It is not super hard to set up, but does take time.

I think they should have just called it "Limewire pe" with no pirates on the screen.

When I first loaded it, I was concerned that I had loaded a virus or something. It is a little difficult for the average user to trust something that says pirate and has pirates on it. Feels like you are being hijacked or something.

That aside.. seems to work fine though in my seeds I seem to get allot of "Invalid request" errors from downloaders.. I am assuming that it may have something to do with firewalls though I have opened a port for mine.

I think the splash screen there is meant to be a bit of a joke. Years ago there was a video on youtube about LW & the splash screen seems to be a snapshot from that: YouTube - You are a pirate

Yes you could lose your settings (though not your saved files, providing that you saved to a safe location & not within Program Files etc) if you switched versions.
If you wanted to switch at any stage, you'd need to back up LW's preferences folder before switching & then replace the prefs folder with your backup, once you'd installed the new version.

If you ever do want to switch, check out this thread for the location of LW's preferences folder & other important info regarding incomplete downloads: Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should
Important - if you ever want to replace the preferences folder, LW must be properly closed first. Check in Task Manager... if there's a LW process running, end the process. Replace the folder & then restart LW - your old preferences should be in place

Are these torrent files?

You can check your firewall status within Tools > Advanced Tools. There you'll see whether you're behind a firewall & whether or not you support transfers.

Thanks for the advice.. I'll look into that before I change to another ver.

Not Torents..I use utorent for those.

I really only use lime for music.

I actually did that with the advanced tools to make sure my port forward worked. I believe it may be something on their end as most downloads are fine but certain users are having problems and their file requests are bad. Probably about 1 in 10

It is nothing I can fix as my side seems fine.

I realize the splash screen is a joke.. my point was only that it is not confidence inspiring
