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 3.6.2 Beta

We've released LimeWire 3.6.2 in beta, available from your pro download page as well as from the free page at:

http://www.limewire.com/english/content/beta.shtml

The new version includes several important fixes, including:

- The "A new version was found.." flashing message is now correctly only displayed when a new version is really found.
- "AppleEvent timed out" errors are now ignored on OS X since they are harmless.
- There's a new option to disable out of band searching in case the user needs to turn it off because it doesn't work on their machine.
- Fixed various problems with our implementation of the MAGNET protocol, which allows LimeWire to handle MAGNET links from web pages, particularly with multiple attempts to download the same file.
- Fixed problem with downloaders downloading twice from the same host.
- Fixed problem where a servent could incorrectly use out of band searches, leading to no results.
- A super-cool new native OSX installer.

Thanks for everyone's help testing this beta, and for all the betas of the past!

-LimeWire Team

Adam,

I have a question. Would you be able to make a new installer for Mac OS 9x also like you did with OSX?

Installed and checked for the race fix with jum218--looks good: the search tabs closed properly. However, at first LW started up as a leaf--with 31 outgoing connections, even though I'd run as UP for 46 hrs on the previous session ????

Number of Ultrapeer -> Ultrapeer Connections: 0
Number of Ultrapeer -> Leaf Connections: 0
Number of Leaf -> Ultrapeer Connections: 31

After about 5 minutes I used File->Disconnect; File->Connect and LW reconnected properly as an Ultrapeer. I think I've seen this once before, (thought it because connected through a different IP) but I can't remember the version. I haven't been able to reliably repeat this.

3.6.2 looks to be quite stable: I'd reorganized some files from the main folder to a new folder and added another 100 files to share). The hash went well, even though I was downloading the new versions via the browser, checking and refusing mail, uploading, searching and downloading a few files and a magnet link.
Very impressive--a few months ago this would have triggered a crash, or slowed the machine to a beachball!

"About LW" display is still awkward--slow opening, and inconsistent spacing or display of opensource credits in the versions of 3.6.2 I've tried so far (three tries--LimeWire 3.6.2jum218, LimeWire PRO 3.6.2 BETA, jum 219).

The new LW 3.6.2 installer looks good and worked well (Does it also use Roger's improved Lime graphic?). When I first started on OSX last year, this is just how I would have expected a legitimate OSX app to install. What did surprise me though, was that it installed and replaced the version which was running! No error message, nor a dialogue asking for overwrite permission, and the copy source files were added to the LimeWire folder in the Apps folder--the jum readme was left untouched. That can't be good!

The pref to uncheck "Use LimeWire MP3 Player" is not being saved between machine restarts--but is saved between sessions. Written to memory but not to disk?

So--next is NIO? LW just keeps getting better and better. Too bad people's connections are still being hampered. Thanks from here at least for all the work that keeps this project going.

Default Leaf bandwidth?

In LimeWire 3.5.8 and 3.6.2 beta, when acting as an ultrapeer, leaf bandwidth always shows 0.000KB/s (both in and out) even when some leaves have a pretty high QRP % (more than 10%) and are getting as much messages as some ultrapeers (from a quick glance of how fast the message count is increasing between a high QRP % leaf and some ultrapeers).

Sorry for not getting back to everyone here. LimeDude -- we're almost certainly not going to do anything like we did for the OS X installer on OS 9. First, OS 9 doesn't have the same kinds of tools available to make installers like this. Second, and probably more importantly, the OS 9 market is just shrinking so quickly in comparison to OS X that we're reluctant to devote our limited resources to OS 9-specific features. I hate to say that, but we just don't have the extra people to devote to it given how few people are still using OS 9 and below (I believe less than 10% of LimeWire users last time I checked).

I'll answer other questions separately.

Thanks.

Hi Stief-

We have seen the issue with leaves getting 30 or so Ultrapeer connections a couple of times, and we haven't quite figured out what's happening. It's almost cerrtainly some sort of race condition, but we just haven't nailed down exactly where it's happening. We should be able to figure it out and fix the problem, though.

We'll also look at the issue of overwriting an already-running LimeWire as well as the issue of the option to use the native audio player -- thanks very much for pointing these out! I'm about to announce the release of LimeWire 3.6.3 beta with pro-only features, so you'll see that shortly. If any beta testers don't have free pro links and would like them, just send me a quick e-mail (afiskatlimewiredotcom), and I'll send one to you. The new pros are performing very, very well.

Thanks again for all of your help!

Thanks Adam. quick note:
the installer says "Click on Install Limewire to begin Installation"
rather than "Double-click . . ."

[will the NIO stuff be coming out as Alpha first?]

Thanks for your reply Adam. I will be buying a new Mac this year or next year and it will come with Apple's new version of Mac OS X (Panther) Mac OS 10.3.
