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.
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. 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.

For any Mac OSX users out there interested, I will post links to LimeStart as soon as I do a french translated version of the LimeStart installer with vosgpat translating.
Edit: you can find a copy of LimeStart at the MacOSX or LW Pirate Edition links at the iFileIt site on page 1, or attached here.
LimeStart will act as an insurance against the above behaviour of LW should you not use LW for a month or two (or longer.)
Last edited by Lord of the Rings; September 20th, 2012 at 03:05 PM. Reason: Edited the LimeStart link, updated it to fix minor bug in the installer that nobody would have noticed
All the MacOSX LW 5 and LPE versions I have packaged with LimeStart for optional use. I think I've done my deeds for the gnutella comunity. Hope you enjoy and appreciate them.
I did not create a LimeStart for the OSX portables, I doubt anybody will use the portables anyway, though thought it was about time there was Mac portable equivalent just in case of interest.
There, the LimeStart app actually puts Mac users ahead of Windows users lol
hell yea thanks file_girl71! iv basically stopped downloading since limewire went down then got limewire pirated edition and i always had to restart my computer for the files to actually start downloading. i just took off LPE soon after this was well over a year ago and recently started using uTorrent which isnt bad but cant always find what your looking for.
What usually works is to disable the option on both LW and iTunes, then re-enable the settings on both. For iTunes that means Preferences -> Advanced -> Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to Library. However the problem is usually LW related.
LW's menu bar, Tools > Options > My Files > iTunes (Configure).
You may need to restart both iTunes and LW for the refreshing of the settings to work between the two programs.
iTunes sometimes stops importing files from LW when LW has been running a long time. Java related at a guess. If that's the case, simply restarting LW and iTunes may fix the issue.
I like LimeWire. But java is what i hate! "no java runtime environment installed" - answer found! Post #9 re: Java 7
It seems no LimeWire version 5 including Pirate Edition will launch directly under Java 7 (1.7). This was obviously some kind of oversight error by the LW 5 developers. Which was also not realised when LPE was created. An oversight. Funnily, LW 4 versions are unaffected by this and will run happily under Java 7.
A workaround fix for this issue was posted by pongo1 "here".
At this point I do not know if this affects Linux users. Nor do I know if it will affect MacOSX users since OSX is still using Java 6 at this present time.

Hey, I'm having problems with sharing and don't wish 2b a parasite! Am running FileGirl's version with Pongo's shortcut on a Windows XP Pro sp3v6223, am on a wireless connection (Belkin 600-N Dual Band WPA2-PSK) and I did try FileGirl's WindowsFix but couldn't run it as admin due to need of a password ? I do not know how to deal with this I'm as green as the grass but can follow clear directions if someone would please be so kind ? Oh yeh, I almost forgot, I'm running Java 7 and used the downloader link (also from File Girl) That is why I made the shortcut! I am able to download files even though I am getting a message of " you are offline please check your internet connection" and am getting five blue bars!
Last edited by Tweedy; July 6th, 2012 at 02:12 PM. Reason: added info
http://www.gnutellaforums.com/attach...on-message.gif ie: ignore that message you see first time you run LPE. The weblink the LW main-window used to connect to is no longer active, thus with the link now dead gives that eronomous message.
I'm not sure about File_Girl71's fix, hopefully she can respond to that. I should imagine it's only asking for an admin. password to allow it. Her fix helps prevent LW deleting the connection file if LW has not been used in a month or longer.
Can you give more details about your problem with sharing?
Unless your files are music in which case id3 tags should be sufficient, giving your files a description can help your files show up in other peoples' search results. Unfortunately the LPE description tool does not work for video. And LPE's description tool is not as advanced as the LW 4 description tool was.
Go to your menu bar, Tools -> Advanced Tools ... does it say anything about being firewalled?
(This is a message you would see if you had firewall issues. Ideally it would say you are not behind a firewall.)
I have only music files. The message I get in Advanced Tools is the same as you have it above, showing that I'm behind a firewall but support firewall transfers, yet I haven't seen any upload activity going on and I have over 60 files so far to share, more when I can figure out how to get music from my iPod out into the Limebrary!
Which software firewall do you use? You will need to make an exception for LW in your firewall. Setting up an exception for LimeWire in your software firewall
If the issue is not due to your software firewall, it might be your router's NAT, which acts like a firewall in a way. LW has UPnP abilites to open ports in routers that support UPnP, but not all routers have good UPnP implementation and some do not have any.
Once you see the firewall message disappear from LW's advanced window, this should improve both your files being found in search results of others, your uploads should improve, and your search results should arguably improve also.
As for iPod, there are free utilities you can obtain to help copy music back to the computer. A discussion about iPod earlier in the year Music files to flash drive help. Some of those links or utilities might be what you are looking for or at least helpful.
Years ago I used a similar utility to copy music from iPod back to a Mac computer.
