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 3.9.10

The LimeWire 3.9.10 beta is released, with the pro version available from a link on your Pro download page, and the free version available from the LimeWire download page.

Changes in 3.9.10 include:
- Fixed some conditions where reading ID3v2 tags would fail.
- Fixed dynamic querying when locales were involved.
- Fixed the font size of the menu options (File, Tools, Help, etc..) in all themes except the Default OSX Theme (which was already correct).
- Fixed auto-matching of possible filter choice to reselect a new match when the filter changes.
- Fixed creation of icons for default search types so that they will work on Mac Classic again.
- Fixed wishlist/download button to correctly transform and be enabled at the appropriate times.
- Fixed error associated with Java 1.3 and clipped tooltips.

LimeWire 4.0 is still on schedule for Tuesday, May 18th.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us to build LimeWire into the sophisticated, easy-to-use file-sharing program that it is. We are consistently #1 and #2 on Mac downloads on download.com, and in the top 10 Windows downloads. The removal of bundled software from all versions of LimeWire is right in line with people's choices, as evidenced by the fact that Ad-Aware is the #1 download for Windows on download.com (and has been for two weeks now).

Thanks,
The LimeWire Team

Looks good here.
minor notes: A Magnet download didn't recognize that the file was already in a subfolder of the shared folder.
--About box shows 3.6.10 Pro
--OSX installer sets permissions on limewire app to an admin user other than the one requested by the installer.
--Spelling correction for the getting started screen: "you can narrow you[r] search results."
--Allow the columns to be widened by taking space from the next possible column (for the case when the next column is already minimized).

The 3.9.11 beta is released.

A few small fixes are in 3.9.11:
- Fixed magnet registration on English LimeWire PRO for Windows installer.
- Typo in 'Getting Started' image is fixed.
- The shopping tab is now named 'Shopping'.
- Some more ID3v2 fixes.
- Some fixes that could have caused 'Could Not Move to Library' on OSX (and other Unix-based systems).

Thanks,
The LimeWire Team

What do you mean with "sets premissions on limewire app to an admin user"? Do you mean the group, the owner or the premissions for others?

Hi Roger. The owner gets set to another owner; the other permissions are the same as yours.

I run two admin accounts on my laptop--one for work (lets call it "worker") and one for LW ("stief"). Quite a neat feature of Panther, btw. When I login to 'stief' and install LW under the 'stief' account, the owner is set to "worker", even though the installer ask me to authenticate using the "stief" password.

I just checked: set up a new admin user "roger", downloaded the 3.9.11, installed, authenticated with "roger", and permissions are set on the new LW 3.9.11 app for owner "worker".

I suspect the permissions problem has more to do with OSX's Installer.app. We'd be very hesistant to change the installer seven days before a major release... It'll get fixed, if it can be fixed, soon though.

On another note... does anyone have suggestions for new 'Tips of the Day' for 4.0?

Yep, I think it's an Installer.app issue. I assume it picks the first best non-root admin account (stief: was "worker" the first admin account on that machine? With NetInfo Manager you can see if "worker" is the first non-root user in the admin group -> /groups/admin). I've tried to install it from the root account and it set my admin account "roger" as the owner...

Yes Roger--you're right. "worker" is first user after root in NetInfo (root is not enabled). Nice catch.
It seems harmless (only noticable when a jum install is forbidden). btw--have you tried running LW as a separate user? I find it almost as good as running LW as a background app (daemon?), and it seems to run just fine. I want to eventually set it up on the 24/7 machine just to serve up private magnets.

As for TOTD Sam, numbered tips would be handy and ordered more logically (I wasn't sure if I had gone through them all or saw a duplicate).
--add some of the useful links, like Roger's iTunes guide http://www.kapsi.de/files/itunes.html and more of the links Ursula put together * Useful Links *
--add a recommendation to use AdAware or its like (and repeat that LW no longer supports spyware)
--add a definitive note about the difference between Pro and Free

Exclamation 3.9.11 buglet: sort by location

In the search results window, sorting by location doesn't work. Clicking on the header, the arrow changes direction but the listing isn't sorted; nothing happens. (Sorting works on all the other columns.)
