Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Default Skins - links to some answers

Some links you may find helpful:

1. (a) Skins: Need File Changing Help ___ (b) Change file name from .zip to .lwtp ___ (c) Hhow do I change file extension

For creating skins, this is excellent: Wyrdjax, a previous FrostWire skinner has a fantastic skinning guide here Wyrdjax's Skinning Guide


2. Skin doesn't work HELP! "Out of Date" solution !!! - ie: do not zip the folder, instead, select all items simultaneously to be included in the skin and zip them together. Then rename the zip file to the name you wish the skin to be titled and with a .lwtp file extension (.fwtp for FrostWire.)


3. Applying skins help (especially for Vista users)

4. And 6_pac's advice here is very good for everybody: Downloading & installing Skins (includes sample images to assist how the process can be done.)


Remember for Windows systems with the new version LimeWires, the Themes folder in the preferences folder is found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\*yourusername*\Application Data\limewire\Themes

For VISTA & Windows 7 the Themes folder is found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\*yourusername*\Application Data\Roaming\Limewire\Themes

The Application Data folder is a HIDDEN folder so you need to change option to show all hidden files & folders before you search for it. You can find that under Options in search window. ______ Finding the LW Preference folder in VISTA & Windows 7

*Edit & warning: LW 5 does not accept skins. If you strongly desire skins, please downgrade to LW 4.16. Why 4.16? Answers here: Downgrading to LimeWire 4 from 5 & resuming incomplete downloads & why is LW 4.16 much better than 4.18


If you are looking for. Custom made Skins, see both Posting your Custom Skins & also LimeWire Custom Skins found here - Gnutella Forums


* . For FrostWire users, of course the preferences folder name is called FrostWire instead & found in equivalent location, & the needed file extension referred to to manually rename from .zip to is . .fwtp instead of .lwtp . . . . . . Perhaps refer to this: Frostwire Skins Themes and for ready made FrostWire skins: FrostWire Skin Collection Installer!

For XP C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Application Data\FrostWire\themes.
The Application Data folder's hidden by default, so you'll have to show hidden files & folders first...start > control panel > folder options > check the 'show hidden files & folders' button > apply > ok.

For Vista/Windows 7 C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\FrostWire\themes
The App Data folder's hidden by default, so check out the thread below about how to show hidden files & folders & how to find the preferences folder in Vista (the preferences folder is named FrostWire & the themes folder should be within that).
LimeWire Pref Folder in Vista (this link refers to LimeWire but it's the same for FW)

Shortcut for reaching the Application Data folder:
Windows XP: Click on Start > click on Run > type %appdata% into the text field
Windows 7: Click on the Start button > type %appdata%
Windows 8: Go to Search, (a) type in %appdata% and it will be listed below the search box, else (b) click on programs and type Run into the search box. Open Run and type in %appdata%
