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.

I'm guessing we tested it about the same time. lol But I had not tested the last phase of her BS launcher before she put it into the installer with the BS program. She told me she did update the cache in the installer.

I didn't quite understand what you meant about the date until I checked. Win 7 was fine until I opened & closed a few times. I'll have a word to her about it.

Edit: It's funny you know. After BS has been closed for a period, the date goes back to 2011. Same thing with Win XP. However whilst BS is open, the date is 2005. I'm not sure if it's same for you? Because BS can take a couple mins to fully close after finishing writing backup files etc. during the closing process. After that the date returns to normal.

I guess this overcomes the computer system shock the previous BS Start created on some people's systems & security. I guess it depends if this date going back affects you at all in general terms of using your computer. Just hope you don't auto-date emails/letters rofl jk

In your settings, did you choose totally close BS or send to tray? By default, it sends BS to the tray. Check BS settings for this.
Not sure why mine goes back to normal time otherwise & yours doesn't.

She said to try setting the BS Loader to run as Admin.

However I think this is more of a Win 7 issue. I've discovered my BS on XP actually does work fine with the date changing back to today's date soon after opening. Whereas on Windows 7 Pro it does change back but takes a lot longer (over a minute.)

Oh well, perhaps after Win 7 SP1 is released it will hopefully fix it. As File_Girl suggested, it's been well reported Win 7's XP support is lacking.
An alternative of course is in meantime to go back to the other start program, BearStart.

Oh the image you provided showed as BS Test, did you also give the Launcher program Admin privileges (ie: both BS Test & Launcher)? That lack of admin permission might be what's stopping the time reverting. After all, it's the Launcher program that's not fully doing its job as it should be with the date.

I don't suppose you experimented with compatibility options for the Launcher program, 'might' be worth trying but just a last shot option in meantime I guess.
Not sure why it works ok on my Win 7, yes slow to revert the date back but it does work. I presume it's set to 32 bit or 64? Another option perhaps to swap around. In fact perhaps parts running as 32 bit are the issue. Win 7 not handling them properly.

There is not a BS Launcher, only a BS Loader that I have found. Both are marked as administrator. I’m guessing loader and launcher are one in the same? You said that file_girl made several different versions of BS – Could you kindly send them to me? I’m sorry to keep bothering you, I appreciate the help.hit and miss connection-no-launcher.jpg

BSLoader is what I meant. You can ask her yourself. I don't run windows all the time so I don't always have it in front of me to remember. I'm primarily a mac person.
If it's not working on your system, it's not working. File_Girl suggested the most probable reason.
