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 2.9.0 Alpha

We have just released the LimeWire 2.9.0 alpha. We're calling it an "alpha" because it has so much new code that hasn't been tested on the wilds of the Gnutella network that we're going to extend the alpha/beta process slightly more than we normally would. That said, this version is loaded with new features, including:

- New "dynamic search" architecture will make Ultrapeers dynamically adjust their search based on how many results have been received. This frees up bandwidth by cutting off searches for popular content when enough results are received. For searches for rare content, it will send the search further on the network to ensure that you receive the results you're looking for.

- Indexing between Ultrapeers now allows Ultrapeers to only forward searches to their neighboring Ultrapeers when the neighboring Ultrapeers have matching content. This change should save about another 50% of network bandwidth over the old search architecture, leaving more bandwidth for rare content searches and for your downloads.

- MAGNET links. LimeWire now supports the MAGNET protocol. Using MAGNET, you can insert a link on a web site that will automatically wakeup LimeWire to search for and download the content specified in the link. In the future, this will mean that you will be able to click on a file in your library and select to e-mail a link to that file to a friend. When your friend clicks on the link, it will wakeup LimeWire and download the file directly. If you've ever had trouble e-mailing large files to your friends or associates, this will solve the problem!

- Local subnet searches -- LimeWire will now always search your local network for anyone sharing content with another LimeWIre. If you're in a dorm, on a corporate LAN, or on a wireless network at a conference, fire up your LimeWire to see what other people on the local network are sharing. The results will appear in special blue stars with the speed listed as "Ethernet." When you go to download these files, the speeds will be unmatched because the transer is happening locally.

- New LimeWire look -- new buttons, smaller icons, and a new feel make LimeWire sharper than ever.

- Improvements to the "download mesh" architecture will improve your download success rate and throughput.

We've added many more features and bug fixes, but there are so many that I can't quite keep track of them all! This version is also really a "beta" for LimeWire 3.0, which will include refined versions of all of these features. The search architecture changes in particular incorporate some of the latest ideas from the p2p research community, including more agressive use of indexing to decrease the average load on a given computer and the use of more connections between Ultrapeers to create a network less vulnerable to node leaves and joins, to save bandwidth on query hits by reducing the distance on the network they travel, and to reduce the latency of searches, so you get your results more quickly!

This is really the first installment of a series of radical improvements that promise to dramatically improve the searchability of the Gnutella network!

Thanks for everyone's support. We hope you like it. There are surely bugs with all the new code, so be patient with this version for a week or two -- we think it's features will soon impress you.

One last thing -- this won't be available for Mac 9.x and below until Monday -- our apologies for the delay.

First thing I noticed was that the block host feature works great (really speeds up ease of searching)--thanks Sam and trap_jaw--and so far, no "could not move to library" message.

trap_jaw, thanks for the pointers, updates and reports. It has been reassuring to know you've been monitoring developments.

Would anyone kindly suggest some tips for the most efficient way to report bugs to bugs@limewire.com? The http://www.limewire.org/project/www/bug.html looks to be for project members, but seems like the place to start finding out what issues need more info. I guess key words are "core" or "gui," but I'm not sure about the minimum platform/OS info--Some tips on key words to snip from OSX Console entries would be appreciated.

You will still see 'couldn't move to library' errors, when you are trying to download a file with an illegal character in its name (and without sha1 hash), but the error is shown when the download is started and not when it's near finished.

Trap_Jaw,

I have been dragging my feet today on downloading 2.9. I am still kind of licking wounds from 2.8.5.

Have you tried 2.9 & if so any issues?

The ethernet connect worked very well, but then killed all my host connections on both machines. I quit both Limewires; mail client were able to reconnect several minutes later. Installation wasn't trouble free on both Macs (OS 10.2.4).

It's working well on Linux and Windows. Maybe there are some minor installer issues left but LimeWire itself *should* run without any major stability problems.
