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.

Exclamation updating iTunes lost my limewire files

I was sharing my iTunes folder. For some reason, once this was being shared, all the new songs i downloaded turned up in that folder, even though they weren't going into my iTunes itself, as I had hoped. I didn't do anything about it, just had two separate folders of completed songs. Then I updated my iTunes, which my mac does periodically as better systems become available. Now, my iTunes are no longer being shared and all the songs I downloaded in that file disappeared. I can't find them anywhere on my hardrive, even iTunes itself (where they never were anyway) except the incomplete files. When I tried to share my iTunes again, the file turns up in my limewire, but none of the songs are there, not even the ones in iTunes, which last time were added to my number of shared files. Needless to say I would like these missing files back. Has this happened to anyone? How can I find my files?

I am also disturbed that the limewire page covers up any other pages open at the time, and when I try to change sizes of other pages, it covers parts of them and cuts rectangles out of the page I'm working on.

Can you explain more about this ?

Do you speak about frames in your browser ?

Like most websites, for security reasons, the web site detects if it is visited from within a third-party web site frame container, and removes these spy containers, that hide to you the effective URL of the web page visited, and filter the displayed content.
Web sites that refer to other web sites using frames to keep a menu bar on top take up aluable space on your screen.

For security reasons, you should better navigate in a separate window when visiting any site, and the URL of the home page should be visible in the adress bar of your browser.

The LimeWire web site works with Netscape 4 (old Mozilla engine), Netscape 6 to 7+ (new Gecko engine), and Internet Explorer 3 to 6+, and probably correctly with other W3C-compliant browsers like Opera or Konqueror.

Default framing

I think I was unclear, it isn't just webpages it covers or cuts up, its any open folders and documents too. It's usually just for a few seconds, although my limewire page was frozen ( I waited, clicked on it without results although all the other pages and programs responded) just before I restarted, and that's when it opened without my iTunes files. I should clarify it was frozen before I updated, but I ignored it and finished the installations. Does that help?

I know exactly what your talking about. The problem is that Apple's version of Swing is still too slow to display what's going into it fast and efficiently. (The list display won't update fast enough and will show little patches of what was there before when you select it.)
