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.

Unhappy Since ~3.9.7

On startup, LW often lingers for a few minutes at Quality: Poor. A glimse at the Connections window reveals only one or two connections to other peers and leaves.

If I disconnect and connect, within a flash the Connections window is flooded with connects and within ~20 seconds at least a dozen connections have been established and Quality: Turbo is displayed .

This seems to have been introduced with the defaualt list of GWebCaches introduced in 3.9.7 but I am not sure about this.

Unhappy 3.9.12 grabbing CPU

After running 3.9.12 ~30 hours, it has started grabbing >95% CPU time after running ~60 seconds. This is AFTER shared files have been scanned, AFTER the connections have been established.

I have backed down to earlier versions, even rebooted, yet it now occurs with 3.9.12 every time I run it. It isn't at all obvious what it can be because it isn't caused by any user interaction, but if I had to GUESS, I'd wonder if it didn have something to do with the regular out-of-memory messages I have been getting.

Such message won't be very helpful if you don't specify your system settings (use the "generate error" menu option to list all relevant information).

I have run this version since several days without such problems (on Windows XP, with both Java 1.4.1-04 and 1.5.0-Beta1).

Also it would be helpful to know if this occurs while the GUI is displayed or when it is running in the system tray or iconified.
If this occurs with the GUI displayed, which panel is active?

If this is caused by a file recently downloaded, it would be helpful to determine which (We have seen some occurences of MP3 files that caused such behavior in previous betas, but it's possible that there exists similar problems, caused by some strange ID3v2 tag formats which may let the code allocate excessive buffers for parsing it.)

I don't think so. Disconnecting and reconnecting will just attempt to reuse the same existing list of peers that existed before disconnecting. At startup, there's lot of things to do in LimeWire, so connections may be slower. Once all gets in place, things go faster.

LimeWire has worked a lot to optimize the init phase and reduce its power up time (including reducing the time to process list of Gwebcaches).

Just disconnecting/reconnecting will not trigger new accesses to Gwebcaches.

What may happen is that your last saved list of peers was outdated (because you had not run it for some time), so LimeWire will first attempt to connect to them before querying Gwebcaches if this list is exhausted.

Other sources of peers comes from attempts to connect to busy hosts with no more connection slot (they report other peers they know in a X-Try-UltraPeer header). This minimizes accesses to Gwebcaches.

The problem of Matamoros is that he is on os/2 and there is no LW devs including open sourcers that test LW on that OS... (Never seen myself an os/2 OS except in screenshots).

This happens on OS 10.3.3 too, but the tooltip window correctly remains within the bounds of the LW Window on the right (which is where I usually have my Dock).

However, when resuming a download or trying to use the scroll bar, several clicks may be required. Could the tooltip window be made 'transparent' for mouseclicks?

Are upstream stats reliable? This is an old problem, but just in case it's more than a GUI problem, here's a screenshot. (14 hrs uptime; uploads throttled to 101.25 KB/s on a 1 mbps cable connection)

Ah, right. But I don't see anything about "generating an error message" that Verdyp is referring to. This panel is referring to the errors messages that LW generates , no?
