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.

Until a few months ago, I'd load limewire on an amd 450 K2 processor... it's not much of an issue anymore with my new machine(a much faster new AMD), but for ppl with slower machines, such as my old one, LW can be crippling to one's processor.

Additionally, indexing upon booting LW each time (not initial hashing) just seems to tale a helluva lot longer than it should when sharing a large number of files.

i agree with both of your points. i still feel the effects on a amd 1.3 mg processer.

Default fast forward button

You need to add a fast forward bar to the player. Such as the thing used in WMP and iTunes where it moves along to tell you were your up to and you can jump forward in the song. Then i would actually use the player

Default Lower cpu load

Hi there!

I am using Limewire on a 10mbit (->1mb/s downstream*g*) connection with a lot of paralell downloads, but even my 2.6ghz machine has a load between 2-5 on Linux.
(-> a 5ghz machine would be needed to process everything).

I've tried different JVMs (Sun client,server ; JRockIT; IBM) but the server-jvms (all except sun-client) seem all to produce more or less the same results.

so lower cpu-load is definitivly something I am really interrested in ;-)

Yeah the player needs to be updated...that and startup time are probably the biggest things for me.

Default Hmm..

Totally agree here, I think nobody uses an player integrated in p2p software for more than just listen into a few files.

This all-in-one approach has several times prooven that it does not work very well...

The LW player will be better in 5.0, you should see how when there is a 4.9 beta (I don't want to poil anything, but you can look at CVS commits)

NIO is already in alpha-tests for developers only.
There are still a fews things to correct, notably to find a way to detect that the host has no active connection (because NIO is not blocking and now LimeWire first attempts connections with UDP without waiting for a reply, nothing happens for long; there shoudl exist a watchdog to detect that some time has elapsed, so that the connection attempt is marked unresponsive; this code existed in the previous non-NIO based blocking code, but converting it to non-blocking NIO is still not perfect.

This just means that if you have no internet connection, with the alpha version, you won't get any notification with an alert box advizing to check your internet connectivity, and LimeWire stays for now indefinitely and silently in the "Connecting..." state until a connection is available. If you have Internet connected, then nothing seems bad, and Limewire is incredibly faster and uses much less CPU and memory paging to disk.

There are still some work to do to optimize the memory usage in Untrapeer mode, but the progress is still significant (for those users that have Java 1.4+; NIO is not available on MacOS Classic that just has Java 1.1.8; but MacOS Classic never qualifies to host a servent in Ultrapeer mode, so this is less a problem).

Windows users that still have Java 1.3.1 with an old version of LimeWire will really need to upgrade now to Java 1.4 to get NIO support and benefit of the improved performance.
