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.
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. 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.

Too early to tell yet if the disconnection problem can still occur, but another problem is already apparent: sometimes Limewire hangs for a significant period of time with nearly no CPU use. It never used to freeze without nearly 100% CPU use. So it looks like it now hangs temporarily under a whole new set of circumstances using 4.9.4 and Java 1.5.0_04, hangs that didn't happen with 1.5.0_03.
Since around beta 4.9.1, every search seems to produce a handful of undownloadable results. They show stars or torn paper, and if you select them and hit "download" they don't change to folders, don't actually start downloading or anything, and no prompt pops up either (such as "overwrite this file?").
Also, since installing beta 4.9.4 I'm having odd problems previewing image files I've downloaded. The Windows previewer keeps showing "drawing failed" or getting hung "generating preview..." or "drawing image..." -- the images look fine when opened in a paint program so it's the previewer that's malfunctioning rather than the files being corrupt. (Besides, I have Lime set to automatically abort corrupted downloads.) When I switched to this Web browser window to report these problems, the browser acted funny too! The display only partly redrew, and buttons were missing from the toolbar and the Google search box was missing. This is with a recent version of Firefox. No error messages, just abnormal behavior. Eventually it redrew itself properly and I wrote this.
Nope. Didn't fix it. I went out for dinner, came home, and Limewire showed five red bars and the "you don't have an internet connection" dialog box. Of course, I have an always-on internet connection so this is patently ridiculous. Closing the dialog and telling it to "connect" sufficed to fix it however, without restarting the client. So maybe there's some improvement; although switching to Java 1.5.0_04 didn't stop the problem happening in the first place it may have made it easier to recover from.
(Sanity check: yes I could browse Web sites just fine both before I left and right when I got back. No, I hadn't changed anything -- in fact I wasn't physically present to have changed anything even accidentally, this time.)
Please update to the most recent beta (at this moment 4.9.4) http://www.limewire.com/english/content/beta.shtml
If you still have problems with drops in connections & end up disconnect or of poor connection please see beta 4.9.4 dropping connections
Here are some bugs introduced in beta 4.9.0 that are still present in 4.9.4.
Longest-standing headaches still present in betas that were also present in 4.8.1:
Firewall detection bug
On a Windows XP box with Sygate Personal Firewall. Sygate has been told to let all Limewire traffic by unimpeded. Limewire has been told there's no proxy and no firewall. Beta 4.9.3 added the firewall detection thing in the status line. Beta 4.9.4 promptly broke it -- sometimes it shows "Limewire has detected a firewall" even though that's impossible on my setup. Sygate is configured to be transparent to Limewire, and Limewire has been told not to try to detect a firewall. How can this be happening?
The oddest thing is that despite incorrect firewall detection it actually seems to be downloading things and functioning OK.
Here's a strange one.
With recent betas, run a search for images and the media filter is likely to show "video" or "audio" as well as images as filtering options. Click the oddball media filter and the result list is pared down to ... not even an animated .gif, which might qualify as "video" in a technical sense. Just one or more ordinary jpegs.
But your priority should be getting Limewire 5 to have a user interface that is actually decently responsive. Limewire 4 or 3 anything seem to process input in batches, then store up but otherwise ignore input for a while, then process another batch. For example, trying to scroll through search results with a wheel mouse is an exercise in futility: first it won't budge, then it will start dancing up and down by itself and keep doing so for a while even if you take your hand completely off the mouse. Then when you go to scroll again it just sits wherever it landed ... the interface sometimes becomes almost totally unusable. Responding promptly to user input should take priority over whatever "thinking" an interactive application might do under the hood -- period. This kind of sluggish and frequently uncontrollable behavior is unacceptable, and that it has remained this prone to hangs, slowdowns, and ignoring-everything-you-do-for-five-minutes-then-trying-to-do-it-all-in-the-next-five-seconds through at least two major versions is unconscionable.
For a while now it's been impossible to clear out a large number of downloads without Limewire completely locking up. It's still the case with 4.9.4: the items disappear when you hit cancel or clear inactive, but the interface then stops responding. Task manager shows that Limewire has hung with 100% cpu use. If a stderr console is open it floods with lines like these:
16-Jul-2005 9:27:34 PM com.limegroup.gnutella.downloader.ManagedDownloader stop WARNING: MANAGER: no thread to interrupt
Looks like clearing out downloads makes Limewire unload a semiautomatic directly into its own foot, resulting in the observed crash.
* The speed of your computer (CPU, RAM, etc)
* Java version
* how many downloads approximately were there you tried to clear them
1.5.0_04 according to java -version. What's the _04 part mean anyway?
Anyway the firehose stream of console warnings make me think whatever it fired into its foot may have been illegally converted for fully automatic fire. :P
