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.

--several times the Monitor showed a duplicate upload (different progress) to the same IP/vendor. Uploading the same file at the same time seemed a waste of bandwidth, so I had to kill one (the lowest) and reset the upload prefs to only allow one slot per person. Too bad--I'd like to allow more slots per person.

Does not seem to be a bug, but a normal behavior. That remote host just happens to use its two upload slots to download distinct fragments of the same file.
This is a feature of swarming. This is not a "duplicate" download, but a convenience (because you have allowed two slots per user, you allow that user to use these two slots as he wants to download any file or fragment from you).

The progress bar only show the position of the download fragment in progress.
This would be a bug if the two progress bars were showing identical positions. Also it may happen (sometimes) that the apparent same downloader is a pair of distinct hosts connecting to you through the same NAT router or proxy. These two users may not be aware that they are trying to download the same file.

However if they are on the same LAN, may be the Multicast support of LimeWire may allow them to cooperate by downloading each a separate fragment from you and uploading to each other the same fragment. I don't know if alternate source discovery also searches the LAN for available files or fragments with Multicast... It could be useful because it will speedup their download experience with Ethernet speed from each other.

--the 'already-downloaded icon' doesn't pick up on tunes that get sent to the shared iTunes folder if they are manually deleted from the unshared dl folder . (Roger--I don't work with iTunes much, so this is likely to be a new user problem. Otherwise, I was impressed by how well LW integrates with iTunes). I guess keeping the Library updated is in the future plans. The recognition of files in the unshared folder does work well--thanks for that.

It depends how iTunes is configured ("Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" or not - former is default) and if you delete the tune from your shared directory then LimeWire is no longer aware of it (iTunes holds an own copy of it, see the above setting) and it's therefore a new file at the next search from LW's perspective.

Edit: and the future is close.

stief posted: Thanks for the earlier info Philippe, and for all your gnutella/LW work too

May be I should add to visitors of this forum that, despite my involvement to the LimeWire project, I am not a LimeWire employee and not a contractant; just a volontary contributor to the open-source project, where I perform beta-tests, suggest corrections, try isolating bugs or performance bottlenecks.

I try to follow all the LimeWire development (as well as the discussions in the GDF group where the evolution of the Gnutella protocol and its usage policy is heavily discussed and debated), but sometimes I may give errors in my responses here and a LimeWire crew will correct me.

I manage most of the work related to incoming translations. Also I am maintaining the French translation up-to-date, and I help translators or contributors that write to the LimeWire "translate" mailing-list.

I also created the "Amber" theme for LimeWire (because I like very basic, non-distracting, themes without bold characters and many colors, and because it was missing to allow displaying correctly some languages written with scripts with complex glyphs (like Chinese or Korean).

I needed this clean theme to test LimeWire in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Arabic, and Hindi Devanagari (I used random text for Thai, Korean and Devanagari because we still need translation contributors for these languages).
