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.

Question Limewire Skins

I need some help with installing or rather viewing the new skins in my menu selector. I downloaded 2 skins from the limewire official site and saved in the proper folder but when I go to the VIEW/APPLY SKINS.. it does not show up in the menu. What am I missing here? Please help!

Hi, If you are running Windows XP your skins need to go in the following folder:

C://Documents and Settings/Your Username/.limewire/themes/

You need to move the skins from your Shared Folder to the folder above.

I did exactly that and I still cant view in my menu. I think it is because the .ltwp files are missing after unzipping the folder to the proper place. I downloaded from limewire and can now use one of the new skins. I just cant use the ones I downloaded via my browser.

I tried downloading them from by browser and had problems with it. I find it's always best to download them from LimeWire because the folder goes straight to where it's suppose to go. Just out of curiousity, which skin did you download? The only ones that I liked were the Halloween and Christmas skins. I prefer to make my own.

I downloaded the party skin..the pink skin and patriotic one through my browser. The only one I could get through limewire was the patriotic one. The rest kept telling me need more sources. That's cool that you make your own. Do you share them through limewire too??

When 'need more sources' comes up click on find sources and within a few seconds it should start downloading. At least, that's what it did for me. As for sharing my skins, I tried to upload them but the files were too big because I have more .png files in my skins. In order to put them into LimeWire so others can download them the graphics can only be .gifs and .jpgs.

Btw, is that you in the attached image in the first post?

After you unzip go to skin folder there should be a text file called theme.txt you need to left click select rename file and change the file name to theme.ltwp

I just did that and I still can't view in my menu. (Sighz) I think I'll just give up on downloading from my browser. Thank you for taking the time to help.

I'll tell you how to do it, step by step so you'll know for the next time you want to download another.

1. Once you have your .zipped skin, click on the Themes folder in the .limwire folder and create a new folder. If the skin you downloaded is called Christmas(this is just an example), then name the folder Christmas_theme.

2. Unzip the skin and make a copy of all of the .gifs, .txt, etc. and paste them in the Christmas_theme folder.

3. Click on the unzipped file and rename it Christmas_theme.lwtp.

4. Cut the Christmas_theme.lwtp file and paste it in the Themes folder.

Now when you go into LimeWire click on View>Apply Skins>Refresh Skins then go into apply skins again and you should see your new skin.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
