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 LimeWire Development Update, 03-02-25

I'll include some of the important changes to the LimeWire code (www.limewire.org) over the last two weeks.

* completed Multicast support (LimeWire will now always search other LimeWire's on the same LAN).
* Users can not change the number of connections LimeWire tries to keep anymore.
* Ultrapeers will now have 15 ultrapeer connections and up to 30 leafs
* cleaned up Handshake & connection code
* fixed some (not all) bugs causing "Couldn't Move To Library" errors
* added option to choose helper apps for linux & solaris

do you know why 15 ultrapeers connections and not 30? If it is 15, will the TTL be upped to 5 for dynamic queries?

The TTL has indeed been upped to a maximum of 5, - however most searches should work with a TTL of 3-4.

The number of connections is as low as it is, to make the transition easier, I believe. Otherwise the first users of the next version would see a really poor performance.

Thanks for the refs Trap_jaw

BTW, would blocking "Awesome" IP's end up blocking the shared folders of legitimate users?

Question

Hello!

Why should users no longer be able to change the number of connections to Ultrapeers?.

I am on a 8MBit/sec VDSL connection faster then a T1 connection.Whenever I start up LimeWire 2.8.6 (I am using Mac OS 9.1)it always start up with just 3 connections even if I have changed the preferences to T1 which should allow me to have 10 connections up so I manually have to change the number of connections to 10 everytime I start up the LimeWire application.If users should no longer be able to change this number manually then the LimeWire team should change this so that the app starts with as many connections as possible according to what settings for connections speed that you have set in preferences.If not then the search results on the network will be as poor as for modem users even if you have a fast connection and I cannot see why any users would want that.I sure wont!.

Joakim, connecting to a large ammount of ultrapeers cause a problem to everyone network, except for the person who searches from lots of ultrapeers.
1. When you do a query, that query is sent from each ultrapeer you're connected to. These queries will reach many times the ultrapeers you are not connected to, because each query search random ultrapeers. Therefore, the traffic between ultrapeers is upped a lot.

2. many ultrapeers gives poor results cause they can't route that amount traffic, thus lowering search responses by lowering the amount of peers you search.

3.the more places you take as a leaf, the more ultrapeers the network needs, meaning that 1)poor ultrapeers will be elected, 2)your search horizon is lowered

4. There are others factors, but I think I told you the biggest.

As a matter of fact, software locked number of ultrapeers rock! For me it is great, for you there will be less results, but everyone on the network will have better search results!
