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 miss the connection changing feature. Helps to conserve bandwidth, or increase number of hits if your doing a search for a rare piece. I'm getting much fewer results because LW defaults to 3 connections... any way to raise this?

No. Although increasing the number of leaf-ultrapeer connections increases the number of search results *you* get - it reduces performances for everyone else. Once there are enough 2.9 ultrapeers out the number of results you will find should increase very much.

Just a quick update on an earlier problem. This time a single LW 2.9.0 on the G4 stopped Web, mail and gnutella access on the G3: (interrupted Acquisiton .74 downloads). I only had to quit LW to regain mail and web access.

Luckily, this didn't break my Acq. hosts, but did interrupt three active downloads.
Acq still shows uninterrupted uptimes, but the active downloads stalled, and haven't yet restarted 30 mins later (cache entries are being written, though, and new searches are giving new results).

More irony, though. This happened while getting the Limewire FAQ link for another post and I only fired up LW on the G4 to check the keystroke for Audio contextual menus (and searched for "canon" to see song results)!

No Console entires noted on the G3; G4 Console wasn't running.

Were you running as an ultrapeer while that happened?

I think I've found something but it doesn't seem to be related to ethernet downloads but to searching while you are an ultrapeer.

This is what happened: When running LimeWire in ultrapeer mode a search, when I start it, might cause all connections to be dropped. So far it appears to be some weird synchronization problem that keeps connections from being initialized properly after I started a search. Disconnecting LimeWire and connecting after several seconds solves the problem.

I'll be able to tell you more in an hour or so.

Don't know. Only had it up for a few minutes, and yesterday the G4 kept to three connections. The few files didn't show as ethernet either (I did remember to scan the IP's). If yesterday's logs are any help, feel free to grab them.

Did the search drop affect any other machines?

Thanks for the info--maybe I can stall on fiddling with IPNetRouter.

Just reproduced the bug. Yes, the G4 was trying to be an UltraPeer. No Console entries, though. I'll give up my Acq. UltraPeers (uptime >15 hrs), and see if it just affects the browser on the G3.

I'm not able to reproduce the bug reliably, so I can't tell what causes it. - It doesn't seem to be too bad on linux and it didn't cause any weird network activity either.

The problem went away after a minute or so...

Yeah, I tried again a few times with and w/o Acq.
Couldn't reproduce the same behaviour when Acq G3 wasn't running: Instead, Limewire G4 as UltraPeer crashed after Acq started up (logged--130+threads; no Console), but no web or mail loss--I tried. Restarted Limewire while Acq still running, Limewire went into leaf mode and I haven't been able to make more problems since. Quit Acq on the G3, and tried twice more to get Limewire in Ultrapeer mode--it's behaving.

Looks like two clients trying to hold down quite a few connections is needed first for me. Explorer was running on both machines too. Oh well, another weekend not wasted.

use limewire on the g3 & g4. i dunno what could be going wrong with acquisition, because i don't know how he's modified certain things. i assume in no instance you had both programs running on a single machine, because that is just asking for a crash.

if the problem's related to acquisition, i'm not sure how much of a help i can be.

Right. I'll see if I can reproduce it again later this week if it's still unsolved.

Yesterday was all Limewire--I just ran Acq last night to get a sense of the differences and was pleased with the stability of the connections, so let it run all day today on the G3 (my main machine). As I said, it was a fluke I triggered today's crash. Someone asked a question about Limewire, so I started it up on my wife's G4, and that triggered the discussion above. I might try running them together for personal curiousity, but I fully expect that to bring trouble.

Don't worry about helping me--afisk did the right thing by posting this release as alpha. If these bugs help you and other developers come up with better Mac clients, I don't mind testing what I can. I do appreciate the expertise you and trap_jaw freely offer.

Were you able to get hold of the logs? If the iDisk isn't efficient, just email me at stief1@mac.com. I'll dump today's limewire.crash.log in there too.

Cheers, and good luck with this week's developments.
